Persian CAT PROFILE

The impressive Persian is a massively built cat clothed in a long, flowing coat. Short, heavily boned legs support the Persian's boxy body. The cat's head should be round, with large, round eyes and a short, snub nose. A sweet expression promises the easygoing personality for which the Persian is popular. Such a wide variety of colors are accepted in this breed that they are divided for competition into seven categories: solids, silver/golden, smoke/shaded, tabby, parti-color, bicolor and Himalayan. It is important to remember that this breed requires daily grooming.

See if a Persian cat is right for you with these tips from CAT FANCY vet expert Arnold Plotnick, DVM. 

Persians tend to be low-key, affectionate cats who get along well with others. (I do have a few very feisty ones in my practice, but they’re the exception.) Their life spans are similar to other cats. Being longhaired, Persians require regular grooming to avoid getting matted. Most Persians enjoy the grooming, and taking 15 or 30 minutes every day to brush your cat is a great way to bond with him.

Persians have flat faces and tend to accumulate a little more eye discharge than other breeds, but you can easily wipe this away with a tissue as part of your cat’s daily grooming. I recommend taking your new Persian to the veterinarian soon after you adopt him, to make sure you’re starting out on the right foot (paw) with him.
