Group Description

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN ADOPTING A PERSIAN or EXOTIC SHORTHAIR? OR DO YOU DO PERSIAN RESCUE? Then this is the list for you! Our goal is the rehoming of Persians and Exotic Shorthair cats, so this list provides a means for for people interested in adopting a Persian to find a Persian cat in Rescue or needing rehoming and for Persian Breed Rescues and fosterers to communicate with each other. [NOTE: Himalayan is one type of Persian, not a separate breed.]

Tips on Persian grooming and care are also provided for owners who request help in dealing with their Persian. In far too many cases, people give up animals because they do not understand animals basic behaviors & needs or because of "lifestyle" changes that are beyond their control. Please do help educate others about each species or breed BEFORE they get a pet & caution them to ONLY get a pet if they can honestly commit to that responsibility for the lifetime of the animal. If they are considering buying a whole animal as a pet, please tell them the advantages of spaying or neutering that pet. Only a very few purebred cats, as identified by knowledgeable breeders, are likely to contribute to their breed's important health, beauty and temperament characteristics. It is a rare cat that is qualified for a responsible, pedigreed breeding program! If a person is not ready to undertake the markedly increased level of commitment to the breed which breeding entails, then other options are available that will still allow them the enjoyment of their chosen breed. Please ask them to consider the neutered or spayed rescue cat as one of those options! THANKS FOR CARING!

NOTE: List members may well be Persian breeders who care deeply about their breed. However, rescued cats are NOT used for breeding nor are they available for breeding. All rescue cats should be neutered/spayed before placement by a rescue. This list is NOT a vehicle to place retired breeding cats or to sell kittens.
