What to know before you purchase one – The Truth About Teacup Cats
What is a teacup cat? Are they real? ~~ Facts vs. fantasy world on these fascinating felines.
You can read almost anything on the World Wide Web, heck I’m sure somewhere you can probably even buy a unicorn if you believe hard enough.
Living in a fantasy world can seem fun for a while, but personally, when it comes to matters of the heart, eventually, the truth is always the best.
We have been breeding Persian and Himalayan Kittens for 33 years now. We have been on the internet for 17 of those years and have seen tons of here today gone tomorrow websites. Many claim to have “Ultra-Tiny Teacups, Ultra Mini Size, Micro Size”, kittens as a marketing ploy to get you to believe their kittens are the tiniest.
Many cat breeders will take pictures of a three or four-month-old kitten, post it on their website, and say it is an “Adult Teacup Cat”.
Some of these websites are still up and running, scamming people every day.
This is so misleading and makes all of us look bad, especially those who have worked very hard and poured decades of our lives downsizing in a healthy process.
How is the public supposed to know the actual age of the kitty in the picture? You want to believe what you see, but let’s face it, unicorns are not real, and neither are many of these pictures floating around on the internet of so-called “Teacup Cats”.
The reality is, it just comes down to morals.
9 times out of 10 they also take part in photoshopping real cat pictures to create the illusion of super tiny teacup Persians.
Understanding the difference between a regular size Persian and a Teacup Persian.
Silvers and Goldens are simply, by nature, smaller framed Persians. No one ever bred them down.
Like with humans, you have people who are just normally big-boned and people that are just naturally petite. They are not healthy or unhealthy; it’s just their natural body type.
The overall bone structure of a Teacup Persian kitty is naturally tiny and will be small their entire life. When bred responsibly by breeders with extreme knowledge of the breed, morals, and dedication, they are some of the most amazing pets on this planet.
If not, you could end up with someone breeding two runt cats together, calling them teacups, or someone just breeding regular cats together and applying all kinds of tiny terminology in order to get you to step into their fantasy website world or, even worse, a breeder that is breeding cats with heart problems because they do not do HCM testing on their breeders.
Here on our website, we clarify which kitties classify as a Teacup size and give you an honest adult weight estimate. We provide this weight estimate with all our kittens.
Breeding Teacup Persian Kittens – A Matter of Morals
Selecting which Teacup Persians qualify as part of a healthy breeding program comes down to ethics. It sets the good cat breeders away from the bad.
What becomes dangerous? What crosses the line? As we said, Silver and Golden Persians exist by nature, so selecting the proper ones for a breeding program is imperative.
We have been breeding our silver and gold cats into many of our other colored cats for 20+ years, so we get teacups in various colors now.
Keep two things in mind when buying a Teacup Persian Kitten.
1.) Breeding ANY animal 5 pounds and under is EXTREMELY UNETHICAL!
2.) Purposely breeding to achieve animals UNDER 5 pounds is EXTREMELY UNETHICAL!
Because of the severe health consequences related to not only the pregnancy of that five-pound cat but the delivery and aftermath. Nine times out of ten, that mama kitty will have to undergo a c-section to get the kittens out of her. Then the struggle of keeping kittens who only weigh a few ounces alive begins. Dealing with hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) & hypothermia are issues that will plague these ultra-tiny kitties for nearly their first year of life (possibly longer), which can mean complete heartbreak, many vet bills, or both. If the kitten misses even one meal, their blood sugar levels could drop dangerously low and cause seizures and even death.
Tiny Teacup Persians bones are often very fragile and can easily be broken. They are not suitable for homes with young children or dogs and need to be handled with extreme care. The cats’ small bones can break easily, which means owners have to be on alert not to step on them by accident or allow them to jump from too-high surfaces. Traumatic events can be life-ending for these cats even something as simple as surviving a fall from the owner’s arms.
We would NEVER BREED ANY CAT UNDER Five POUNDS, NOR STRIVE TO GET THEM!
