The Persian cat is probably the most popular of all cat breeds. Purebred Persians are common all over the world as pets, and are prominent participants in every cat show. Persian cats have a short and broad body type, often referred to as “cobby.” The body should be powerfully built and well balanced, with a massive short neck and thick legs.
The head should also be of a heavy broad type. All Persians share large round eyes, short broad noses, and small rounded ears. However there is a distinction between two face types:baby face and punch face.
The long, beautiful coat demands constant grooming. Persians need daily brushing and regular baths. Persians are very affectionate, but relatively quiet. They are more inclined to a sedate lifestyle and feel most comfortable in calm, quiet surroundings.
