Persians & Other Longhairs by Jeanne Ramsdale

We have been breeding Chinchilla Silver Persians almost exclusively from the bloodlines of Jeanne & Phillip Ramsdale of Dearheart Cattery since 1970.  Our program for 30 years relied completely on kittens obtained directly from the Ramsdales. 
Dr. Ramsdale was my veterinarian when I had my first kitten as a youngster.  Therefore, it was natural  as  young newlyweds that when my husband desired a Persian cat  we went to see the Ramsdales.
Jeanne was considered the most reknowned authority on Persians in this country and she wrote several books including our favorite, Persians and Other Longhairs.  She had always about 50 cats in her mansion roaming about everywhere.  Upstairs, downstairs, on the stairs, and lots of help to manage such!  It was so much fun to visit with her.  Jeanne picked which cats we were to get.  They were first and foremost our pets, our children, and then our children began to have children.
Jeanne passed away in the late 90s and her husband followed his only love.  Their cats were given to another breeder but a terrible fire within a few years caused the loss of all the Dearheart cats. 
We have been left to carry on Jeanne's legacy.  We feel very lucky indeed and yet so very sad to have lost both the Ramsdales and their cats forever.  My husband, a great artist, was the driving force that had our house filled with his beloved "boys".  Yes, we had a cattery in reverse!  All males, and a female.  For decades that was us.  Now, Gene too has passed on.  I am dedicated to keep the Dearheart line thriving with the help of my God-daughter, Firenza, and we have been blessed to have Hollywood knock at our door for our Dearheart beauties.
