My name is Kathy DePietro and I am located in the central part of NJ.  All the breeding cats here at Mikkat Persians are PKD negative,  My cats are raised underfoot and are well socialized.  I actively show in CFA and have been doing so for 18 years.  I have very few litters per year with my goal being to produce a healthy, well balanced, open expression solid persian with sweet temperament.  Our kittens are raised in our bedrooms to ensure as much socialization as possible.  Kittens are also given weekly baths starting at 6 weeks,  They receive high quality food including Royal Canin as well as a partial meat diet.  Kittens receive their vaccinations at 8 and 12 weeks of age and are dewormed at 7 and 11 weeks of age.
I wish to point out that there is NO SUCH thing as a TEACUP......this is a marketing tool used by unscrupulous breeders.  The fact is that the majority of female Persians only weigh between 6 and 8 lbs when full grown, and most males will top out between 8 - 12 lbs.  They are not a large breed.  Generally a kitten that is smaller than that when grown have serious health issues that can very well cost the unsuspecting owner hundreds if not thousands of dollars of vet care.  And no one can predict how big a kitten can be when fully grown,  Some of the biggest when born can turn out to be normal while small kittens can go thru a growth spurt and end up being the biggest.
^^ Now, as for DOLLFACE, this is NOT a kitten that meets breed standards and is considered to be pet quality.  The top of the nose leather on a persian should be in the middle third of the pupil of the eye.  Don't get me wrong, every breeder will get  a lower nose persian.  While we are all very happy to find a great pet home for those babies, it's is not a kitten that a good, responsible breeder will use in their program as that is not a desirable trait.  Yes, you will find lots of people out there producing "doll face" and they are generally charging far more than reputable breeders would charge for the same kitten.  They like to make out that these kitten are something 'rare' and 'desirable', when in face that is just the opposite.
If you would like to know more about the standard of the breed, you may always go to  http://www.cfa.org/documents/standards/persian.pdf and you will find descriptions there of what a Persians should look like.
My kittens are sold with a contract only and will not be released before they are 12 weeks of age.  IF YOU WISH TO DECLAW, PLEASE DO NOT INQUIRE HERE.
