The best place to find Persian and Himalayan cats and Persian and Himalayan kittens. These cats are all very loved and well cared for.

The CherryBirdie Cattery is owned and operated by me, Cheryl Riley, and I have been breeding cats since 1993 and really enjoy it. Breeding cats is something that I have known I wanted to do all my life. Because of this, you might say that these cats and kittens are somewhat spoiled and raised with lots of love, attention and handling. Consequently, this does seem to result in happy cats! My cattery is CFA registered and I raise Silver Persians, Himalayans, occasional Goldens and Persians of other colors. I work with lines from such well known catteries for Persians as: Missionhill, Silkenlace, Dalee, Silverestate, Joyvyn, Sonnet, Danpeg, Diadem, Marhei, Bar-B, and Topcattery. My Himalayan lines include: South Paw, Cactusway, Prancenpaws, Madame Nu, Pawsitive, Stumar and Desert Winds.

What is a Silver Persian?

A silver persian has several qualities that make it a special type of a persian. One of the most outstanding features is that they have “permanent make-up” which consists of black eyeliner, lipliner and nose liner. They have brick colored noses and their eye color is usually green or blue-green which is required for showing them. There are two types of silver persians, a Shaded Silver and a Chinchilla Silver. They both have white undercoats but the Chinchilla silver just has silver tips on the very ends of the hairshaft making it appear more like a white cat, whereas the Shaded Silver has the tipping going down further on the hairshaft for some darker highlights.

Although I own and co-own several cats, only 3 live with me.
