Please enjoy your visit, check out our jokes page and come back often as we are constantly adding information specific to Persian cats and kittens. When we were breeding and showing Persians cats, we were a small family operated cageless Persian cattery located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. We could not keep every kitten in our pursuit of the perfect kitten for showing, therefore we had Persian kittens available for sale. My husband and I do not have children so our cats and kittens are our four legged children. Our cats and kittens are showered with love and attention and know the house is theirs and we are their servants!! Our Persian kittens did not leave our home until they were completely ready to do so. We felt that rushing a Persian kitten out the door before they were ready would do more harm than good. Your new Persian kitten is going to share your life and companionship, we feel that waiting an additional two to three weeks for them to grow will only enhance their development socially making their transition into your home a smooth one. Any responsible Persian cattery will never release a Persian kitten from their care prior to twelve weeks of age. Not only is this against Colorado State law as mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture, but it is detrimental to the social development of the kitten.

Most responsible cat breeders will only release their Persian kittens be placed with the signing of an agreement that indicates you have a limited time to spay or neuter your new kitten. In most cases, the rights to breed a kitten are NOT sold with the kitten.  Many breeders will be offended if you ask to breed the kitten "just once."

When we placed a kitten to a home that was out of our geographic area, we shipped our kittens within the continental United States. Our airline of preference is Continental Airlines, we have shipped Persian kittens all over the United States to states such as Texas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Tennessee, Kentucky, Florida, California, Oregon, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, New Mexico, Wyoming, Montana, Maryland, Nevada, Utah, Ohio, Idaho, Washington, Wisconsin and South Dakota. Locally, in Colorado, we have kittens currently living in Fort Collins, Loveland, Denver, Aurora, Colorado Springs, Security, Widefield, Brighton, Castle Rock, Parker, Arvada, Evergreen, Greeley, Littleton, Morrison, Longmont, Alamosa, Golden, Westminister, Edwards, Monument, Gunnison, Breckenridge, Englewood, Buffalo Creek, Boulder, Parachute, Centennial, Elizabeth, Craig, Cortez, Gypsum, Centennial, Highlands Ranch and Durango.
