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.
Am I the pet for you?
These gentle, quiet cats typically have a laid back personality that enjoy the company of their carers. They generally get along with other pets but are not suitable for boisterous children.
Persians are best suited to an indoor life, lazing around the house or curled up on their owner's lap.

I have a female black cat who when she is getting comfortable especially in our bed she makes this funny movement with her back end and legs like she's squirting but I put my hand there and she's not. So not sure what she's doing. We've only had her 2years this October. Could you maybe have an idea of what she's doing? I've had many cats and non of them do that with the back end. If you need I can take a video next time she does this.
5 days ago I noticed my kitty's eye colour changed a darker shade. Looking up close I noticed his cornea had a 2mm / 2.5mm light graze. He showed no signs of pain or discomfort. He's an indoor pet and is terrified of outdoors. Considering his age I decided to wait out a few days to see if it showed any signs of improvement.Morning of day 4 (7/8/2016) it remained the same. Me and my son made the decision to take him to the vet the following day. His eye wasn't getting any better or worse. He was playful, had a regular appetite, just being the curious kitty he'd always been.Around 8pm (day 4) I came back home from shopping. I walked into my room and noticed a few drops of blood on my bed. I found him sitting inside the littler box curled up crying. His poor eye was covered in thick gunky discharge and blood. His iris has a little blood inside too.10pm, me and my son took him to an emergency vet where he was given a clean, steroid injection, Amoxyclav tablets, an eye drop to dilate his pupil, and Chloropt cream for the eye.He is in a lot of paint. Won't eat or drink. His injury may have resulted from bumping into something. He could be facing a bacterial infection, glaucoma, eye herpes and the list goes on.I took him to 2 vets today (8/8/2016) for second opinions. He was given a dose of Temgesic for pain relief (I have a few more syringes 1 for day 1 for night).Tomorrow he is booked for NORTH SHORE VETERINARY SPECIALIST CENTRE.I used a syringe to give him some water, and fed him a few small pieces of chicken and canned food. He has no appetite or thirst and wont go to the toilet.Please help me save my kitty :'(He's been a part of my family for 15 years. I need to know if there are any treatments available as surgery may be too hard on his little body.This is a recent pic I took. Chloropt cream is on the outside of the eye, middle is a fragment discharge. His eye tears up really quick. Very sensitive to clean the area. He's starting to become afraid of me :(
