Persian Cats - The Persian cat is one of the oldest breeds of cat and was first brought to Europe in the XVI century from Iran. In Britain, it is called the Longhair or Persian Longhair.

A Persian without an established and registered pedigree is classed as a domestic longhair cat.

A show-quality Persian has an extremely long thick coat, short legs, a wide head with the ears set far apart, large eyes, and an extremely foreshortened muzzle. The breed was originally established with a short (but not non-existent) muzzle, but over time this feature has become extremely exaggerated, particularly in North America. Persians with the more extreme brachycephalic head type are susceptible to a number of health problems, specifically affecting their sinuses and breathing.

Persian cats can have any color or markings including pointed, tortoiseshell, blue, and tabby. Tipped varieties are known as Chinchilla. Point varieties are called Himalayan in the United States and Colorpoint Persian in Europe.
