Persian

Feature image

Affectionate, gentle and laid back.

Where I'm From

The Persian is an old breed that is said to be named after their country of origin, but their exact beginnings are unknown. Hieroglyphic references date the breed as far back as 1684 B.C.

Today, the Persian is one of the most beloved breeds in the world, adored for their sweet, gentle personalities and graceful appearance.

What I Look Like

Persians have a luxurious, long flowing coat, a stocky build and big round eyes set in a flat face.

Most people picture the Persian as a white cat but they come in a large variety of colours and patterns.

How I Act

This breed needs a considerable amount of maintenance including daily grooming to keep its luxurious coat free from mats.

Due to their flat face they can be prone to excessive tearing and breathing difficulties.
