Tom and I live in a small log cabin in Trout Creek, Montana. We are completely
off the grid and have been producing our own electricity with solar and hydro for 25 years. We've been raising persians
for 8 years now and it's been an incredible learning experience. Our goal is to produce stunning persians that
fit the CFA standard.
With every kitten that leaves our home, I know
that a new home will be blessed. Whether as a breeder or a pet, that kitten will bring laughter to their new family's
hearts, serenity during snuggle time, and comfort in times of distress.
That is the amazing thing about persians, they
change us and how we look at the world. Those changes may be dramatic or incredibly subtle, yet we are changed
none the less.
They are friends with utter devotion. They
love us without judgment and they entertain us with pure abandon.
Cat shows are fun and producing a top show kitten
or cat that exceeds the CFA standard will be fun.....but, who I am...is this person who can stare for hours into the
copper, cracked-glass glaze of one of my Moms' and be so
ever grateful that she is in my life.
I raise persians because I love
these exquisite beings.
I do this for the joy they will bring
To enhance life....that is enough for me.
We strongly agree with
this code of ethics.
Robert & Debbie
CFA Breeder Code of Ethics
As a Breeder who uses the services of the world's largest registry
of pedigreed cats, I understand I have certain responsibilities to pedigreed cats and to the Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA).
As a CFA breeder, I am aware that I am representative of CFA breeders in my community. I will breed my cats with the intent
of improving the breed and to produce healthy, happy kittens. I will deal honestly with the purchaser of my kittens
and cats. To the best of my knowledge and ability I will not, without prior disclosure, sell any kitten/cat that is
sick or has been exposed to an infectious disease. I will not sell or place kittens prior to their attaining a proper
level of immunity against common infectious diseases. I will strive to house my cats in a manner exceeding the CFA Minimum
Cattery Standard. I will ensure my cats are kept in a healthy environment and I will ensure they receive the proper veterinary
care as needed. I will maintain appropriate cattery records and will correctly register litters and cats. I will work honestly
with my fellow breeders and provide timely and correct litter registration information to those who use my cats for breeding.
I will mentor new breeders to ensure they have a solid information foundation.
