Hi, my name is Paulette and I'm new to the site. I've been the happy owner of a Himmy girl for over a year, but we just added a new 11 week old blue Persian boy yesterday. His color is so pretty, but the breeder I got him from had been feeding him some wet food and now he has a rusty color "beard". Is there any way to get rid of that stain and bring back his beautiful blue color? Or am I going to have to wait it out until it grows out?

I am no expert on other colors (I do silver and goldens) but I would think it has to grow out. It also could be from the water and not the food. To prevent future staining try using a coffee filter as a bib when he eats. Tear a hole in the center and slip over his head. That is what I sometimes use to keep my cats clean at the shows when they eat and drink.

Thank you for the tip! I would have never thought of the coffee filter. My Himmy will only eat dry food, so I never had to worry about that with her, but this little boy just smears his face right down in the bowl.

P.S. Your cat is beautiful! Those eyes go on forever!

Lynda's got the best cat eyes in the world!!!

I'm no help in the food department as mine only eat dry, too. Sometimes my Mandu will take a lick on Tabitha's (DSH) plate but that's just to tease her. She runs him off quickly.

Many years ago..my first persian, a white, had food stains on her ruff.
She had been eating dry Whiskas :shock: Even though it was dry food, when she groomed, it was staining the fur from the food that would have made her saliva that colour I guess..

I switched to the "then good" Iams (things have changed), but it did stop the staining.
The stained fur had to grow out however..with constant combing and sudsing that area each time I gave her a bath, she finally had a nice white ruff...

I love your little blue Mister..he reminds me so much of my blue Bumper...sigh...
