About Persians

It is said that the Persian cat was brought over by European settlers from Persia in the 17th century along with jewels, spices and silks. They soon became regarded as luxury to many of the elite. They were named from the country they came from Persia.  But date back to the 1600's from unknown whereabouts.

Persian cats and  persian kittens have very sweet and loving personalities often refered to as a "dog like personality".  This why so many choose this wonderful breed.  You can have the best of the dog and the cat world.   

Persian cats have extremely long thick coats, short legs, a wide head with the ears set far apart, large eyes, and an extremely foreshortened muzzle.

Because their fur is too long and dense for them to maintain themselves, Persian cats need regular grooming. To keep their fur in its best condition, they must be bathed regularly, dried carefully afterwards, and brushed thoroughly every day.

The Persian cat was originally established with a short muzzle. Over time this feature has become extremely exaggerated, particularly in North America, and Persian cats with the more extreme brachycelphalic head type are prone to a number of health problems (specifically affecting their sinuses and breathing) caused by it. Conscientious breeders eliminate this by careful choice of breeding cats with more moderate head type, as the goal is first and always healthy cats.

As a conscientious breeder we do carefully choose which persians to breed so as not to have that extreme face causing many health problems and in turn not loosing that adorable persian cat look.
