You know, I was just thinking about it too and if I was in the same situation, not knowing anything about breeding and the ethics of it, just seeing it as "hey I have a persian, supposedly purebred, why not breed her and make some money if my friends want one?" I might be thinking along the same lines too. Putting myself in your shoes, you have no idea probably why this is such a bad idea and what the heck we are all talking about right?
Please please just listen, no judgements, no criticism, just please read this and see if you can understand where we are coming from here in our fight to stop this kind of breeding.
So I am going to apologize for being rude if I was and tell you that, yes it may seem like a cool deal, make some money. But you have to look at it from the point of view of the real Persian breeders who have studied their breed for years and put a lot of work and time and money into it. They built up their catteries and put their name out there and aquired the best of their breed to continue on with their breeding programs. They put a lot of time into making sure they have the perfect quality personality and health wise of their cats before they allow them to breed. And most importantly they study the actual breeding itself, knowing what age is best, what qualities to look for in a stud etc.
Do you see what I am getting at? Breeding is a huge responsibility and committment. A LOT of money goes into it. I really suggest you find some purebred persians in a rescue who are desperate for home. Encourage your friends to look there. Meanwhile, study the Persian breed and the act of breeding and know everything there is to know about it. Then purchase a quality, registered Persian and begin your breeding career. Study with a mentor whom you can learn from and ask questions and who can help you along.
Know this, breeders do not make any money. With the vet bills, quality food and just keeping the cattery up and running, a lot of money goes into that.
Please rethink breeding your non registered, not even guarenteed to be purebred Persian cat and learn more about breeding first. We are trying to look out for you here and don't want you to become a backyard breeder and become one of the breeders who give accomplished well known breeders a bad name.
No hard feelings because like I said, before I knew anything about cats and the overpopulation problems due to backyard breeders and mills, I can honestly see where you are coming from. It does sound like an easy way to make some money and of course you love your cat and think she is the best of the best!! We all do. That doesn't mean they should all be bred especially when there are tons more purebred in rescues that are desperate for homes.
