Toy and Teacup Persian Kittens Clause
We do not guarantee size. The words toy, teacup, and standard are used as descriptive words not to imply that there is an actual breed called “Teacup Persian” or “Toy Persian”. The breed is simply Persian. It’s important that you understand, it’s not about weight as much as it is about body structure. A long lean cat can weight 5 pounds while a short cobby petite cat can weigh 6 pounds. The short peitite cat is considered a teacup – not the tall lean cat. Body structure is key.
Pashmina White Persian Clause
After many years of breeding and making the right pairing choices with our breeders, we created a certain look in our white Persians making us very proud. We chose to trademark the name Pashmina White Persian with the United States Patent and Trademark Office under our business name Precious Kittens Cattery™. Please understand it is impossible to trademark a name with a cat registry including CFA, ACFA, and TICA. With that said, by using the name Pashmina White Persian, we are not implying that our white Persians are registered as Pashmina White Persians. We are also not implying that we created a new breed. All of our Persians, no matter the coat color, are simply registered as Persians or Himalayans.
Blue Eyed White Persian Kittens Clause
There is a huge demand for blue eyed white Persians; however, what many Persian cat lovers do not realize is that blue eyed white cats will most likely be deaf or hard of hearing. This possibility is not limited to Persians – ALL white cats with blue eyes are most likely deaf or hard of hearing. Congenital deafness is caused by the dominate white gene (WW) coupled with a blue iris. In a 1997 study, 72% of white cats with blue eyes were found to be deaf or hard of hearing. A cat deals with deafness very well and compensates for the lack of hearing with its other senses. In many cases, cat owners prefer a deaf cat especially in a loud or busy home. Our deaf clause, as indicated in our contract, makes the buyer aware of the possibility when purchasing a blue eyed white Persian. If you would like to speak with us about our observations on a particular kitten’s response to sound, please feel free to contact us. NOTE: Green Eyed Whites and Odd Eyed Whites do not carry the blue eyed white deaf gene.
