Im told he was a pampered pet, his previous owner doted on him. She just cant take care of him any more.
High maintenence isnt an issue, kinda used to it. We have a main-coon mix that needs brushed often or he gets hairballs, and the hairless pets have their specific needs. My sphynx is also declawed.. she does nip on occasion.
A friend of mine says that persians tend to mark, even if they've been neutered? That sounded abit off to me.
It's not a trait in the breed - neutered males marking. It happens in a lot of breeds - it can depend on the other cats in the house, the other cats in the neighbour hood and at what age the cat was neutered.
My almost 10 year old neutered Exotic (SH Persian) sprays but then again I have 3 infact females living here. My Nana's neutered Siamese used to spray and try it on with her kittens. I've never had a neutered Persian spray - just the naughty exotics, usually!
How many boy cats do you currently own?
Are you able to get a picture or see him before you make up your mind? Just to see what sort of condition he is in and what his nature is like.
I much prefer looking after Persians to the SH cats - because they don't lose their fur the same. It also depends on the parentage of him as to what type of fur he will have. Since White cats are never really white cats and mask another colour - he may be a black cat with a white coat, which would be a different feel to his coat then if his parents were blue.
Persians are still the most popular breed in the world (I believe) so you cannot go wrong with that many opinions.
Do you like the squishy faces?
