I wanted to know if anyone has experience with finding a reputable cat breeder. I have never bought a cat before, I have always adopted homeless/shelter cats or rescued strays. However, my mother just lost her husband (my father) and is so, so lonely. She has 2 rescue cats currently in a big house and has said she would like a new kitten to give her something to love and cuddle up to and take care of. She's a great cat mom. I want to surprise her with a persian kitten because she has always wanted a white persian. She did have a himilayan (spelling?) years ago when I was young that she loved to bits. She wants a kitten, not a cat, because she has better luck integrating kittens into the other cats' lives than cats.

So, I was looking around at breeders (either in my area or hers, nyc/PA) and wasn't sure what I should be looking for-- I know so much about cats but nothing about breeding. And what about all the places selling teacup and mini persians? I never heard of that, is that a sub-breed Seemed weird to me.

Does anyone have any breeder recommendations, or a website to start a search? Thanks. I haven't ruled out another shelter kitten, just doing some research now.

ETA: i know the biggest flaw in my plan is that a breeder wouldn't sell to me and let it be a surprise. So, I may have to tell her so they can check her out and get her recommendations.

Thanks for all the advice! My mom is fine with doing all the daily upkeep, she is disabled and spends a great deal of time loving up and taking care of her pets. She brushes her 2 daily as it is, and had a himilayin in the past which took even more brushing. I was debating with the blues and whites.. Are the tear stains easy to clean? do you use those pet wipes made for that or something homemade?

thanks! and i found a breeder who had kittens born today. if anyone is a breeder and could PM me I'd love if i could show you the site.
