Thanks for the great comments!
A little back story on how we got him:
He was originally given to a friend of the breeder, who later moved to the mainland. She didn't want to deal with the "hassle" of taking a kitten with her so she took him back to the breeder. The breeder had about a dozen persians running loose on her property. They all had major eye gunk, which I assume they never had cleaned. They also had dirty water bowls, and were fed Meow Mix (there was a bag of that brand there so I think that's what she fed them). She also had mama cat locked up in a 2 story cage, with a FILTHY litterbox and dirty food dishes (located RIGHT next to the litterbox). The kittens (about a month old) were running around the garage while the mama is meowing her head off. There were giant bird cages (similar to the ones found in zoos) located around the mama's cage. We knocked on the front door and asked the woman if she had any Persian cats for sale. I saw Kionu peeping out from under the table and he stumbled over to the door. At first, she tried to offer me a kitten for TONS of money. I couldn't keep my eyes of Kionu. He looked so sad and I just felt he needed to be rescued right then and there. I asked her if he was for sale, and she said, "Yeah, I'll give him to you for $100. I just wanna get rid of him". It was so sad. I gave her the money, put him in my car and drove away as fast as I could. He was quiet the during the entire drive home. At 4 months old, he was not vaccinated, microchipped, wormed or given any type of flea treatment. He was in really bad shape. After a couple months, he is doing MUCH MUCH better and is so full of life and engery. He loves to cuddle, and just...love.
P.S. Before driving home, I immediately went to the Humane Society in that town and reported her. I found out a few weeks ago, ALL of her Persians (and other feral cats) were taken away and they were all adopted by caring and loving families. The birds were also taken away and now live in a bird sanctuary.
