Hi everyone! Welcome to the information page of Pawwpadd Persians. Here you will find a bit of everything you need to know about us, the babies. It is here that you will find all the important things you need to know to take us home with you. If you still have a question, please contact us.

Why we do not change the prices of our kittens on request

Persian kittens are the most popular breed in the world, so there is a huge demand for them. Along with that, there are a lot of unethical breeders out there trying to make a quick buck. If you find a Persian for "cheap,"  you must ask yourself-  why are these kittens priced so much lower than all of the others?  Remember the old saying, "you get what you pay for?" We do not lower our prices to meet other breeders - please do not ask. Occasionally, we will have lower priced kittens once we decide who we want to keep and who we want to place in permanant homes. We have been asked quite a few times - "which are the "cheap" kittens? The answer has and will always be the same - we do not have "cheap" kittens.

You can easily tell a good breeder from a bad. It has nothing to do with cats in the show ring, an impressive family tree or Champion titles. Other than a cheaper price, here are some "red flags" to look for - are the cats poorly groomed (i.e. dirty eyes and unkept coat)? Is the advertising  filled with spelling errors and kittens listed as the wrong color? Are the photos quickly snapped on a dirty floor or in an old box? Do they offer testing and a state health certificate? What about vaccinations (shots) and deworming?  Do they have a lot of kittens to choose from? All of this probably means that they have purchased an inexpensive, poor quality male and female and just let them breed for quantity instead of for quality. They are chasing the almighty dollar.

Everyone who is a breeder with integrity knows that you do not make a lot of money if your doing it right. Of course, you make a little, but I put most of what I get right back into my cats. Food, vetting, beds, supplies, toys etc.  Our kittens are not "cheap" but they are not the most expensive either. You may get a great deal on the bargain baby, but it is more than likely that you will spend triple that amount on treating an ill kitten, if they make it at all, which breaks my heart. Remember, kittens are priced "cheaper" because the breeder has a lot of kittens to get rid of, or because they know the kittens are not up to standards. Some are not even full Persian. 

Our kittens are priced between $900 and $2,000. We require a $200 deposit to hold the baby of your choice. The entire amount will be applied to the total cost of the kitten. Deposits are NON refundable but are able to be transferred to another kitten up to 6 months from kittens birth. Florida residents must add 6.5% sales tax to total amount of kitten. All monies must be paid in full , no less then 24 hours prior to kitten being picked up unless paying in cash the day of. 


How to spot a poor breeder


We randomly choose several kittens per litter to spay or neuter to prevent undercover and unapproved breeders from using our cats.

CFA Registration papers will not be given until we are provided proof that you altered your kitten.

We may offer breeding rights to a very select few depending on if we have a kitten of that quality and determine you are a right fit.
