Persian Cat

Hello guys!
Its anya again! this time i want to tell you guys about the description about Persian Cat.

 The Persian cat is a long-haired breed of cat characterized by its round face and short muzzle. In Britain, it is sometimes called the Longhair or Persian Longhair. It is also known as the Shirazi cat or Iranian cat, particularly in the Middle East. The first documented ancestors of the Persian were imported into Europe from Iran (Persia) around 1620.

Physical Appearance

A show-quality Persian has an extremely long and thick coat, short legs, a wide head with the ears set far apart, large eyes, and an extremely shortened muzzle. The breed was originally established with a short muzzle, but over time, this characteristic has become extremely exaggerated, particularly in North America. Persian cats can have virtually any color or markings.


The first documented ancestors of the Persian were imported from Khorasan, Persia (now Iran), into Italy in 1620 by Pietro Della Valle,and from Angora (now Ankara), Turkey, into France by Nicholas Claude Fabri de Peiresc at around the same time. The Khorasan cats were grey coated while those from Angora were white. From France, they soon reached Britain.


The Persian is the most popular breed of pedigree cats in the United States.  In the UK, registration numbers have dwindled since the early 1990s and the Persian lost its top spot to the British Shorthair in 2001.



In 1950, the Siamese was crossed with the Persian to create a breed with the body type of the Persian but colorpoint pattern of the Siamese. It was named Himalayan, after other colorpoint animals such as the Himalayan Rabbit. In the UK, the breed was recognized as the Colorpoint Longhair.

Exotic Shorthair
 The Persian was used as an outcross secretly by some American Shorthair (ASH) breeders in the late 1950s to "improve" their breed. Thecrossbreed look gained recognition in the show ring but other breeders unhappy with the changes successfully pushed for new breed standards that would disqualify ASH that showed signs of crossbreeding

Chinchilla Longhair and Sterling

In the US, there was an attempt to establish the silver Persian as a separate breed called the Sterling, but it was not accepted. Silver and golden Persians are recognized, as such, by CFA.
