1st Towne Persians was created in August 2015.  I have owned and loved persians and himalayans since 2003. In 2003 I got my first Himalayan, she was a seal point and beautiful named Ava. After a few months I wanted a sister for her, so I adopted another himalayan who I named Mia. After a few years, I was looking at catteries online, and fell in love with a smoke and white persian boy. I went to visit him and instantly knew he had to come home. He was named Owen. Once I had Owen I started researching more about Persians. I loved the array of colors and patterns of Persians. In the back of my mind, I have always dreamed about having my own cattery. A cattery not just to breed kittens, but to breed show quality, exceptional cats that would support and better the persian breed and also be beautiful pets to many families.

Before I just jumped in developing my own cattery, I spent numerous years furthering my education on the Persian breed, from proper grooming, health concerns related to persians, and how to develop my own cattery. I was blessed with many breeders who openly shared their knowledge with me.

In my cattery as I said earlier I am dedicated to helping to improve the Persian breed and developing exceptional bi-color and solid persians. My cats are my family. They all live in my home, not caged. If you would like to know more about me and my cattery, please feel free to contact me at 1stTownePersians@gmail.com Thank you for taking the time to browse our website.

I would also like to thank all of my mentors over the years who took the time to educate me and share their knowledge and expertise with me.
