What do persian kittens eat?

 Your persian kitten will need to be fed a premium dry cat food throughout her or his lifetime. Persians can't eat cat food from the grocery store because they contain high amounts of ash and do not contain enough protein or fat to support Persian's dietary needs. We use Royal Canin Persian Kitten for our kitten up to 1 year and switch to the adult Rayal Canin Persian for our cat older than 1 year.

You can still give your persian kitten some wet food as well as a snack, but monitor the kitten's stool. Some kittens are very sensitive to changes in their food and may get diarrhea if you swith up their food to much.


Can my persian kitten go outdoors?

Persian cat are typically indoor cats. Persians are not as athletic and as good at defending themselves as regular cats. It is advisable to keep your persian kitten indoors or in a secured environment outdoors. If you decide to have let your persian cat roam outdoors, please have it microchipped and make sure that the environment outside your home is not hazardous for your kitten. Wild animals, cars are big hazards for your kitten.


Will I have to train my persian kitten to use the litter box?

No, our persian kittens will already know how to use a litter box.  Persian kittens learn how to use the litter box from their mom and they will already have learned it when they are ready for adoption.


How often do I need to groom my Persian Kitten?

Ideally, they should be groomed daily with a metal comb to take out they dead hair without removing the healthy coat. Brushes should not be used as a daily grooming tool because the brush does not go deep enough to get those tiny mats.


Can I bathe my Persian Kitten?

It is perfectly fine to bathe your new persian kitten. We bathe our kittens monthly with a cat shampoo. Before you bathe your kitten, please remember to cut clip the claws. Make sure that the kitten is in a warm environment after bathing because they get cold and start to shiver easily. You can use a hairdryer on low and wrap your persian kitten in a towel.


How to was my Persian Kitten's eyes?

Persians have flat faces with a short nose and big round eyes. Their face structure causes them to have eye tearing and improper tear drainage. It is important to keep your cats eyes clean, as infection can develop if the eyes are "crusty" from dried tears. We use Saline Solution and use cotton rounds to wash the kittens eyes. Apply some Saline Solution on the cotton round until the cotton round is slightly moist, then gently clean the kitten's eyes with the cotton round.


How to cut my Persian Kitten's claws?

Cutting the claws of you persian kitten is not mandatory, but if you notice that your kitten is getting stuck to certain when playing with toys, it is time to cut his/her claws.

You can wrap a towel around your kitten to calm him/her down and prevent the kitten from moving to much.

What to do if my Persian Kitten gets diarrhea?

Persian Kittens are very sensitive and they are prone to getting diarrhea. It is best to work by a process of elimination to find out what is going on with your kitten.

First, make sure that it is not due to a change in food. Persian kittens tend to get diarrhea if you transition them for one type of food to another. Make sure you have the proper food for your persian kitten (see above), and don't transition them abruptly from one type of food to another. It is best to transition gradually by adding the new food to the old food and gradually increasing the portion of new food to old food over a couple of days. It might also be that the snack you are giving you persian kitten are giving them diarrhea.

Worms is another cause of diarrhea. Make sure your kittens stays up to date with his/her deworming. Worms will give your kitten diarrhea.

Stress can cause diarrhea as well. If the environment of your kitten changes or there are other factors giving your kitten stress, your kitten might respond physically by getting diarrhea.

If you don't know what is causing your kitten's diarrhea and it persists for more than a couple of days, please contact your vet.
