Purrinlot Persians

 

When a purebred cat becomes pregnant, it is not the same as for a mixed-breed cat that lives outdoors. This is especially true for Persians. Persians need the assistance of their breeders in order to be born into this world, and lots of complications can occur.

Let's start with why they need help. First, they have been spoiled over many years and have forgotten many natural instincts. Some cats just prefer not to cut the cords if the breeder is there and willing. Second, Persians are bred for large round heads, and the head sometimes makes for a very difficult delivery. In many cases, the breeder needs to assist the mother cat by pulling the kitten out. We have found overweight cats have the most problems with this and require the breeder's help even more. Another thing to keep in mind is first timers...they are too frightened to know what to do. Many books say that female cats take after their mothers. Therefore, keep in mind, if mom never did anything beyond carrying, pushing, and supplying milk, the breeder probably will be doing a lot of work. The breeder needs to know when to assist and when to call the vet.
