A couple of weeks before Chester arrived to his new home, we attended a cat show in Connecticut. A Persian breeder provided us with some advice on cleaning flat faces and getting Chester acquainted with his new surroundings. She strongly recommended a safe room - usually a bathroom - where he could get used to the environment, including sounds and smells. We didn't like the idea of keeping him in a bathroom so we decided that he would stay in a bathroom and our second bedroom.
The boy drank so much water that he needed 3 or 4 refills. My husband thought it would be a good idea to put ice cubes in the water - so the water was nice and cold.
Finally, Chester was ready to really meet us!
Then he needed to rest.
