Other than the Persian cat's docile and affectionate nature is the fact that the calm and sweet disposition of this feline often emanates a dignified grace. This cat that is moderately active and easily blends with family with children, but what is the history of this particular cat, the Persian cat? This breed is a very popular option for household pets. Let's learn more about the Persian cats physical features and special care required for its keep. But first, a little about the cat's origin.
First of all, Persian cats are one of the oldest cat breeds known to man. The Persian cat is a long-haired breed of cat characterized by its round face and shortened muzzle. However, its name refers to Persia, the former name of Iran, where similar cats are found. The CFA (Cat Fancier's Association), recognized this breed since the late 19th century. It was developed first by the English, and then mainly by American development of a variety of different colors of coats. Then there is the flat-faced Persians, which is the type of Persian the CFA really only acknowledges according to show quality. However, the general public favors the traditional Persian which has a more pronounced muzzle and generally the healthier of the two types of standards. These cats are perfect for apartment living and other such living environments where family and children are present and are very content in this environment as long as their needs are met. They are very unique in their needs really are so simple; thus the perfect companion pet.
Persian cats are very affectionate and docile cats. They love attention and they like to be played around with. They are happy being loved upon but at the same time don't demand that you love them. They are known to be lap cats as they are quite content to sit on one's lap. I don't think it really specifies in the history of these cats how they acquire their lovable nature, but the Persian cats are good pets for family as they are very adaptable and accommodating. Persian cats do not mind change. They are good with other pets and children. These cats get attached to family members and may show special attachment to a particular individual in the house. Even though playful and naughty, Persian cats do not like to climb or jump very high. These are very responsive cats that are usually the quiet kind. Despite their easygoing demeanor, a Persian cat hates to be left alone. In case you have to leave your cat home for a long period of time, be sure that you have another pet to keep this feline company. Despite the unique Persian cats personality, it is always advisable to have a general idea about cat behavior. This is especially important for those who are considering about adopting cats for the first time.
For the creator of this website, TNRPersiansAZ, once I purchased a Persian kitten, I could never go back to the other type of tomcat kitten that you see on so many advertisements. Although they are also lovable and possess enduring qualities, there is really something very special about the pure Persian cat breed.
