PERSIANS

CATS

Their hair is long and thick, they have a short stocky body as their legs and tail. Their head is round, with a soft expression

There are hieroglyphic references to longhaired cats from 1684 B.C. The arrival in Europe of the first long-haired cat was recorded for 1520. However, the history of Persian cat began to be written until 1621 when explorer and nobleman Petro della Valle Italian introduced cats from the Middle East to Europe. Given the wide acceptance and demand that caused these long-haired cats in the European nobility, cats were also imported from China, Russia and especially Asia Minor. This cat with lush fur was the favorite of the French court, and then it was introduced to England, where it was nicknamed as the "French cat". That's why they are associated to aristocracy since they initially lived in palaces along with the nobles. The British made selective crosses with white Angora cats brought from Ankara, Turkey, being both long-haired cats.

One can say that the first purebred Persian cats were exhibited in 1871 at the Crystal Palace in London. Their initial colors were blue, black and white. Queen Victoria of England and the royal family had blue Persians which they helped popularize. The Persian has been a popular pet since the dawn of the "cat fancy" in the late 1800s to the present.

In 1900 the U.S. imported the first Persian cats from Britain and its popularity continued to grow throughout the world as a "fancy cat". The first exhibitions were won by Persian cats.

Their hair is long and thick, they have a short stocky body as their legs and tail. Their head is round, with a soft expression. They have large round eyes (copper, blue, green and mixed colors), small rounded ears and their nose is short and flattened, an is located between the eyes. The Persian cat we know today is different from the original because the position of its nose and flattened skull were due to a mutation that occurred in a red Persian in the United States in the early 1960s. Currently there are many colors and patterns: solid (white, black, blue, chocolate, lilac, cinnamon, fawn, cream, red and tortie) bicolor, tabby, smoke, silver, golden and chinchilla.

Persian cats have a sweet, gentle and affectionate nature, they easily adapt to a new home. They are peaceful creatures, that prefer quiet environments. They enjoy being combed and caressed gently. Their meows and vocalizations are less strong than other cat breeds, mainly communicating with their expressive eyes. They like the security of the floor and it is rare to see them jumping off a top shelf to explore elevated areas. Persians really enjoy interacting with their owners, especially through game, so they are ideal pets for children and adults.
