Our Signature Look
Our Signature Look
Our HIGHEST compliment is “PET QUALITY”
While many breed for ribbons, we breed for companionship.
We will not and do not condone inbreeding nor will we sacrifice health for “standards.”
We do hope you enjoy the signature look we have been steadily perfecting for the past 30 years!
Traditional Look vs. Peke-Faced Persians
Many people say they see a consistent “look” in our kitties quite different than other Persian cat breeders and that they “love the look!!”. There are two distinct facial structures in the Persian cat world. One is the Traditional Persians. These fabulous felines are the closest to what the original Persians looked like when they first made their debut in the world. The muzzle is bred outward, allowing for proper sinus passages and easier breathing. Some breeders have renamed them “Dollface Persians,” and they are the type we primarily work with. Due to the more natural facial structure, our Persian kittens experience less tear duct drainage and significantly less staining around the eyes. Our kittens also have fewer issues regarding upper respiratory problems such as infection. The kittens with the traditional look have fewer troubles with health issues, which means fewer vet bills. This is sure to give you less heartache and fewer headaches. Our mother cats can labor and bring their new babies into the world safely due to the ability to breathe more easily. It is heartbreaking to hear a kitty that is struggling to breathe. Our cats and kittens have more of a profile too!
Below you can see an example of our Doll face teacup Persian facial structure. We feel this facial structure is all around healthier and is much more appealing.
Peke-Faced Persians are what most people know as the ‘show quality’ Persian cat. These have been bred (sometimes inbred) to produce a feline with a flat face/ profile. These brachycephalic felines have shorter skull bones which provide their flat faces and nasal passages. The look that is achieved is that in which the eyes and nose of the cat/kitten are in close range forming a horizontal line. This variety of Persian often experiences several health issues. Narrow nostrils restrict the amount of airflow which causes loud breathing. The soft palate can also be too long for the cat’s mouth, sometimes blocking part of the windpipe or trachea, producing further breathing issues. Please note: not all Peke-Faced Persian’s will experience these problems.
