EMGems Persians

We are a small home based cattery located on the Oregon Coast. Our primary goal is to breed and raise healthy Persian cats with sweet temperaments. All of our cats are PKD and FeLV negative. While we specialize in chocolate Persians, we sometimes have other colors in our cattery as well. Our cats are bred for the CFA standard for Persian cats, and we are a registered cattery with CFA. We hope you enjoy your visit

Our Story

Elizabeth first wanted a Persian cat as a teenager, after her mother told her stories about the blue Persian cat she had owned in the 1930's. Elizabeth obtained her first pet Persian in 1979. After meeting the late Dorothy Woofter, owner of Kissncats cattery in 1989, she began to dream of showing and breeding Persian cats. When Barbara Redalia of Tuleburg cattery contacted Elizabeth in 2008 and told her Kissncats Touched by an Angel was being retired from breeding, Elizabeth saw her chance to try showing Persians. Later, Barbara shared a wealth of knowledge with Elizabeth as she began to consider breeding. After much thought, we obtained our first breeding queen, CH,GP Patsquats Dreamers Chance of EMGems from Pat Marshall. Along with Barbara Redalia, Julie Grundstrom of Brenneve Persians and Pat Marshall of PatsQuats Cattery have been incredible mentors on this adventure into the cat fancy.
