    I am posting this for a friend as she does not have the internet.
    She would dearly love to adopt a Persian or Exotic short haired cat
    age and colour is unimportant. Althought she would dearly love a
    Solid Cream/Cream Point Persian or Exotic.

    She cannot afford anything in monetary value but has more love than
    money can buy to give to a cat. She lives on her own and suffers
    Anxiety and panic attacks so the cat would be great company for her.
    We are willing to travel around the Derbyshire and surrounding area's.

    I do hope someone out there can help we would be very very grateful. Thank you so much for reading.

    Best wishes.

    Shelly & Cate.

    We have been searching for weeks but have
    not come across any yet or the ones we have
    found have been posted on classifieds in the morning
    and gone by evening. :( Don't people take time choosing
    a home nowadays? :(

    I saw these three today that are in a rescue close to me. I'm not sure if they're still available and it's quite a distance from you but perhaps someone could sort a kitty run????

    I'm quite taken by Fudge myself :001_wub:

    assuming she can afford a rescues adoption fee (anything up to £100ish), has she thought about contacting some local breeders to see if they have any retiring queens, studs or young adults needing new homes?

    The above rescue asks for a minimum donation of £25 per cat.

    yep hun i wasnt downing rescues lol (far from it considering i foster for one!), just thinking that many rescues ask more than £25, and assuming they could afford that, and that they cannot find a persian/exotic longhair/exotic shorthair in their area then this might be a viable option.

    Thank you for that Baby British.
    I have looked at the site and she has 3 gorgeous
    Persians up for adoption right now but she requires
    that a potential new owner spends time at the shelter
    with a possible new addition to a family.
    And it is an aweful long way away for us to travel and for them to do
    a home check. :( i will just keep looking. Thank you again.

    Did you contact them directly???

    I know that there is chance that this rescue may be faced with closure so they might make some exceptions, especially if you explain that you are involved in rescue yourself.

    I have just rang them and shown an interest in Fudge.
    She said if i email her they will see what they can work out
    to get him to me.
    I said i could put out a call for a transport relay. :D
    Fingers crossed. :D

    Persians don't need any special food - though avoiding dry is advisable as some persians are prone to kidney problems, and all cats need moisture from their food anyway. So a simple wet food that doesnt contain any grains/cereals/veggies (they can also be sensitive to the carbs used as fillers in most dry foods and some wet foods) is fine, or a raw diet, which is what all mine eat, along with some commercial. :)

    I have to disagree with the statement that Persians are more prone to infections than other breeds. They are no more or less likely to get normal infections and as an owner of 16 Persians and a breeder of them I know the breed pretty well. I also agree with Ambercat Persians do not need Royal Canin Persian or any other Persian specific food. Mine are all fed on RC Digesive Comfort and are more than happy on it. There has also been a link with RC Persian food and rodent ulcers in the past and because of this most Persian breeders and exhibitors no longer use it.

    My freind was sorted with a Persian
    I found one and she is very happy with him.
    She has experiance with Persians and i myself
    have a few Persians & Exotic short hairs.
    But thank you all for your help.

    I also heard back from Greenacres rescue
    and we will be arranging to transport Fudge to me.
    I decided to take him myself and the lady i spoke to
    thinks i would be perfect to be his new Mommy. :D
    I'm all excited now :D I got some new pics of him via
    email and i'm in lurve! lol :D
