Persian Teacup Kittens – Set the story straight

You may be asking…What is a Teacup Persian Kitten??

Different descriptions of the different types of Persian Teacup cats are different to show the small lines they create in their cattery.

In an effort to educate you about these pint size pixie Persians I have dedicated this page to explaining exactly what Tea Cup Persian cats are and why they got the word “teacup” over the years.

First, let me clarify…. “Teacup Persians” is a descriptive term, not a generic term. So please, don’t buy fake ads or unrealistic expectations of what a kitty will look like growing up.

Many Persian breeders will use the term “teacup” as a marketing tool to sell the fact that the only breed that actually has the “Teacup Title” is the Silver Family and Persian gold.

I found this out years ago when I bought myself a Blue Eyed White “Teacup Persian”. He grew to 15 lbs and had to be put in a kennel because he was too big to feed one of my cats. Personally, I have been breeding White Persians for over 20 years and I know better but I got the impression that he was small, as the breeder said.

If someone says white Teacup Persians, Himalayan Teacups or bi-color teacups you can bet on the fact that they are not a reliable place to send your money.

So remember….Persians must display silver or gold on their person to be counted as a Persian trophy.

As for crystal clear, I am not saying that silver is not cheap with white or gold with white.

FACT: There is nothing like a Himalayan teacup!!!

Although a breeder can’t guarantee the size of an adult of each color you can be sure that if you are buying silver or gold you are in the smallest houses of the body. whole cat can take.

I know that gold Persians are cheaper than silver not by much but by some.

Persians and Himalayans are usually large, cobby and muscular.

Female Persians or Himalayans typically weigh around 7-9 lbs.

The average male Persian and Himalayans weigh about 8-12 lbs.

Silver and Golden are indeed small cats, but they are not grouped together and separated into a “type or size” known as the smallest and smallest family of the Persian feline family.

Persian silver and gold typically make females AROUND 4-6 lbs and males AROUND 6-7 lbs.

This is not a comprehensive guide but just a guide to keep in the forefront of your mind when thinking of a “Persian Teacup”.

Silver and Golden Persians are generally smaller boned than your typical large Persians or Himalayans…that’s not to say you can’t get an occasional small Persian from the A different type of currency every time is just money. and the golds are more famous for the continuity of these engraved Persians.

The Teacup Persians are healthy, friendly and harmless as most Persians usually have a small house.

The Tea Cup Persians (at least the ones produced in our cattery) are a pure breed and are not mixed with other breeds to complement their small size body.

Teacup Persians tend to be higher in price, not so much because they are smaller in size but because their coat color means they are more attractive design pieces.

Persian silver and gold have long been known as the “Royals Royce” of the Persian world so you should expect the best price tags when buying a Persian teacup.

There is a small selection of Teacup Persians to choose from: Shaded Silver, Silver Chinchilla, Shaded Golden Chinchilla, Blue Silver Chinchilla.

ULTRA RARE Designer Tea Cup Colors: Blue Chinchilla Golden, Silver & White, Golden & White and Blue Chinchilla & White, Red Shell Cameo, Cream Shell Cameo.

Please note: Because Silvers & Goldens (Teacups) are smaller and more docile they should not be allowed to leave the foster home until they are at least 12 weeks old! !

Ethical cat breeders enforce this strict age limit on all Persian cats.

FYI – All silver and gold are born very dark, then lighten with age. They will have their natural coat and eye color in about 2 years. I think I have described the “Teacup Persian Cats” and their little ones on this page.

“Start with honesty to build trust”….that’s our motto.

So, keep in mind that if you are looking for a small kitty, you may want a silver or golden Persian. However, it is important to remember… They are not “small cats” they are only known for being very small and small.
