Some good online resources for locating free Persian kittens are KittensForAdoption.us and AdoptaPet.com. Both of these websites offer searchable listings of Persian kittens, some of which are available for free. Other useful resources include area animal shelters and checking the classified ads in local publications.
As of 2015, the Persian is considered the most popular cat breed in the country and has been since the Cat Fancier's Association started keeping records in 1871. As a result, Persian kittens are not usually difficult to find. Their high popularity may be attributed to their reputation for having many positive qualities, such as having a sweet disposition, an attractive appearance and a reputation for being gentle with children.
