More About The Breed

According to American Humane, the Persian cat is the most popular cat breed in the world. The Himalayan is a colorpoint Persian created by a Siamese cross. Himalayans are also very popular, and are sometimes classified under the Persian name, as in the CFA. In addition, the Exotic cat (a shorthaired Persian), is also popular.

Persians are often gentle, quiet, and docile, and many people identify them as the ultimate lap cats. They do need daily grooming, and matted fur may need professional help and can become a health issue.

They may have several other health issues, including weeping from the eyes, respiratory problems, and inability to properly chew some forms of kibble (dry cat food). Even so, these fluffy creatures are adored by millions of fans.
