I have a Persian kitten that is 14 weeks old that I purchased from a local breeder. I am a first time cat owner and loved the look of Persians. I recently went to a cat show and the Persians there were huge! My kitten weighs 2 1/2 - 3 lbs and her mother and father were 6 & 7 lbs. She was a registered Persian. One breeder at the show was very rude and said she must have been the runt and maybe she has a bone disease. She said there aren't any petite Persians. I had never seen Persians in person, only pictures so I didn't know how large they were. There was a 5 month old kitten that would make 2 of mine (6 weeks diff). He was so heavy, must have weighed 7 or 8 lbs. Also, the kittens at this show had really flat faces and mine has a little more nose. Are these different breeds of Persians? I am going to get another one and for sure I want one of the fat, rollie-pollie ones, I just didn't know there was such a difference. Does anyone know of a website for Persians or maybe there's a Persian breeder at this website. Thanks for your help.
