Care of Persian Kittens


Care of Persian Kittens

With the proper care and maintenance, Persian kittens can easily live fifteen to twenty years.
Unlike other breeds of cats, Persian kittens need daily maintenance. Their long hair mats easily, so extensive grooming is required. Professional breeders recommend spending at least ten to fifteen minutes per day brushing your kitten's fur with a metal comb or natural bristle brush to get rid of tangles and dead fur that if ingested could cause hairballs. Persians also benefit from a daily face wash since tearing is common due to the immense size of their eyes. A few times a month, your kitten should have a full grooming session that includes a bath, brush and nail trim. Begin this ritual early in your kitten's life so he gets used to it. This helps keep his coat shiny and in good condition. Persians are best kept as indoor cats because their heavy fur is not compatible with inclement weather and dirt. Keeping them indoors also lessens the chance for picking up parasites such as fleas and worms
