The Persian

A very ancient breed of cat, the Persian was first mentioned in hieroglyphs
beginning at approximately 1684 B.C. The Persians' beginnings have long been lost to
time. The Persian was so named for their ostensible country of origin, the great ancient
empire of Persia which was located in around the modern country of Iran. The first
known Persian cats to arrive in Europe were brought by an Italian traveler, Pietro della
Valle, in the 1600s. Persians became very popular throughout Europe. At the first modern
cat show, held in 1871 in London at the Crystal Palace, Persians were a featured breed.

Persians are a wildly popular breed. They are, in fact, the most popular breed of
cat on the planet. Their long flowing coats and sweet faces immediately endear them to
so many people. Their personalities are gentle and affectionate. They are strong creatures
of habit and are most comfortable in secure environments with regular routines, but with
gentle support, they can adapt to a more lively environment if need be. Persians are soft
spoken cats with pleasant and melodious voices that many people enjoy. Their expressive
eyes charm people of all ages. Persians are built long and low with sturdy short legs.
They are not big jumpers but do enjoy lounging in their favorite strategic locations. They
can often be found beautifully draped on a sunny windowsill posing for sheer pleasure of
it. Friendly cats, Persians will seek attention, but not demand it. Persians have long been
a fixture in artwork. Their great beauty has earned them frequent roles in commercial
advertising and in movies.

Persians need to be kept indoors, away from dirt and burrs that could knot up
those beautiful coats. Daily combing is a must to prevent snarled fur and hairballs. Those
huge beautiful eyes do tend to do a bit of tearing. Washing a Persians' face daily will take
care of tearing. A well bred Persian can be hearty and healthy. When properly cared for,
Persians can live to be 15 years old.

The Persian is an extraordinarily beautiful breed and comes in an amazing variety
of colors and patterns. The registry divides their colors into seven categories: solid color
division, silver and gold division, shaded and smoke division, tabby division, particolor
division, bicolor division and Himalayan division. Each color and pattern exquisitely

to this day. They appear in a rainbow of colors and patterns, one of which is sure to catch
your eye. Give the Persian cat a closer look. The Persian has long been a gentle, loving,
loyal companion to many people over the years. This cat may be exactly what you are
