About This Breed

There are so many different versions on the subject of the origin of Persian cats in the world. If you believe one of these versions, the first is Persian cats have appeared in Persia (Iran). One of the sea travellers between the 1614 and 1626 saw a longhair cat in Persia. He described these cats in his stories about travels. In 1620 a male and a female cats of Persian breed were sent to Italy with the intention to breed them. No one knows what happened next with these cats.
There is also a version according to which Persian cats first appeared in Russia. This is due to the fact that Russian climate is well for cats to have such a long and fluffy hair. Rather, it is from Russia Persian cats were brought to the eastern countries. But this all is just speculations and there are no facts to prove these speculations yet.
There is also a version that says that the ancestor of the Persian cat was wild manul cat. They're very slow and beautiful cats which lived in the mountains of Asia. It is believed Persian cats have inherited their gorgeous hair from them. But this is only a guess and it doesn't have any evidence. Therefore the history of the emergence of the Persian cat breed is still a mystery for us.
Breeders have made a lot of efforts to breed Persian cats. Modern Persians are very affectionate, sweet and charming. They have an excellent and quiet nature. Besides, Persian cats are members of the breed that breeders could change much more than any other breed of cats. During this process, not only cats that met all standards were selected, but also the most gentle and kind cats. So now the Persian cat is the embodiment of all the best that can be in cat's nature.
