The Persian is a heavily boned, well-balanced cat with a sweet expression and soft, round lines. Despite their heavy appearance, Persians move with an unexpected agility. The Persian also sports a long, flowing coat draped on a compact, chunky, short body referred as "cobby" supported by short, thick legs. Large round eyes set wide apart in a large round head with small wide-spaced rounded ears contribute to the overall look and expression. A broad, sweeping brush of a tail as wide as the body completes the picture.



If you want your cats bouncing around like hyperactive popcorn, do not buy a Persian. Persians are perfect companions, if you like placid, sweet-tempered cats. do not count on using your Persian pal as a furry doorstop, however. They love to play between periods of regal lounging on your favorite davenport. Proponents say that Persians do not deserve their ?furniture with fur? reputation?they are intelligent, just not as inquisitive as some breeds, and not as active.



Persians can suffer from hairballs and matted fur if they’re not groomed regularly. It’s recommended that Persians be groomed for 10-15 minutes each day and for a full hour each week to do a more thorough job. Persian cats should be given baths occasionally to remove the build-up of oil on fur, and Persian kittens should be bathed once in a while so that they get used to it at a young age. Unless the Persian is a show cat, clipping the hair around the anus is recommended to prevent feces from sticking to the long fur.
