White Persian Cats are Beautiful

Aug 10, 2008
Breed Standard And History Of White Persian Cats

Persian cats are one of the oldest breeds of cats known to man. Long hair and a snubby face that often leads to some health problems for the breed characterize them. The Persian cat breed is among the most widely recognized due to the characteristics that are present in this particular breed of cat.

There are many color variations of the breed as well as color pattern. There are also some variations of the facial features in some of the Persian cats that range from a snubby nose to a straighter nose. White Persian cats are among the most popular colors sought by buyers and pet seekers.

Background Of Persian Cats

This breed of cat originated in the Iranian plateaus bordering Mesopotamia. Some illustrations also connect the Persian cat with the ancient Pallas cat. An Italian by the name of Pietro Della Valle introduced the breed to European society. The first known written acknowledgement of the Persian cat was in the year 1871 in the annals of the Cat Fanciers Association. White Persian cats were already around during that time.

Standard of the Persian Cat

Persian cats usually come in a variety of colors such as white, blue, black and tortoiseshell. And are generally accepted in any color or any pattern marking as well. Silver, black and white Persian cats top the most sought after colors as pets while other colors are also sought after for show. White Persian cats and others with lighter coloration have a difficult time keeping themselves clean and may need their owner?s help in doing so. Regular bathing, conscientious drying and brushing are among the grooming chores that these longhaired cats need.

The temperament of Persian cats is basically similar to other cats. They are highly independent and need to go out once in a while. Despite their very refined appearance, Persians, especially silver or white Persian cats are very capable of taking care of themselves. They may look fragile but they are very hardy.

Persian cats are coveted because of their beautiful looks. The more popular cats are silver, black and white Persian cats. The coloring of the cats does not affect their temperament or their activity. There are some illnesses or sicknesses that are associated with Persian cats due mainly to their facial structure. Some breeders strive too much to get the blunt faced cats that some selective breeding has turned out deformities in the cats. These deformities contribute to difficulty of breathing and nasal problems.
