Both UC Davis and the Lyons Lab will tell you, there is NO, ABSOLUTELY no miniaturization gene in the Persian cat., YET THE SCAM PERSISTS!!
Silver and goldens have always been smaller than the other persians. This is just a scam tactic. We only breed to advance the silver and goldens per CFA standards. My females range in 4 to 5 lbs. This is normal. Do not get scammed, do your homework.
