What is the special trait of this breed?
Big cuddling fan
The long haired breed has a remarkable appearance: a massive body with relatively short, sturdy legs. The large, round paws ideally trait hair tufts between the toes. In addition – a broad chest, muscular shoulders and a robust back. A long, dense coat with a fine, silky structure, with an immense ruff covering shoulders and chest.
Due to their sweet character, the Persian is one of the most popular breeds- balanced and affectionate – a real fan of tender loving care – with a passion for long cuddling sessions! It enjoys cohabitation with other cats, and as a peacekeeper is also the ideal house mate for other pets. The Persian is a perfect family cat getting along well with older children, however it will always be cautious with visitors and other strangers it has never met before.
What are the traits unique to the Persian cat?
A Persian cat always has a flat, relatively small nose. The snub nose however is still highly sensitive for anything appealing to it! It is typical for this breed to sit on their favourite spot for hours on end – relaxed and in complete harmony with themselves and the world.
They are in no way a bundle of energy but at the same time they are not stoic either. If things get too hectic, they may – calmly – withdraw to a more peaceful corner.
Relaxed and cosy –“rather chill than drill” is their life motto.
Nevertheless, some also like play and fun. However, they might need a bit more inspiration than other cats to leave their favourite snoozing place – so you may have to motivate them a little to join the playing routine at times.
However, when they are still small, they will enjoy playing around the clock just the same as any other kitten!
