In the 19th century, Persian cats were favorites of the European nobility. These are royal and very proud animals with selfesteem.
Persian behavior is fundamentally different from the behavior of other cats.
They do not scream and generally rarely give a voice. If the Persian needs something from the owner, he will sit nearby and devotely look in his eyes, waiting for a response. Difficulties can sometimes arise with this, since not all owners quickly understand that something is required of them. But, even if they understand, then they have to solve the riddle: what exactly like or does not like the cat. Although gradually it becomes easier to do.
In general, it seems that this breed was created for bliss and pleasure: cats are not worn by a hurricane at home, do not hunt and with pleasure spend time, lying in some warm pleasant place with the owner.
Thanks to their restrained character, the Persians create an atmosphere of comfort and tranquility in the house. They are in no hurry, never allow themselves to persistently demand attention from the owner (although they do not mind that they are stroked, scratched and spoiled in every possible way). This is an ideal cat for those who do not like the importunity and excessive activity of mobile rocks.
For all their imposition, the Persians perfectly learn the basic teams and try to please their master in every possible way. They were bred exclusively as a home breed and consider it their main purpose to delight a person.
Persians easily get along with other animals and children. Very patiently related to the manifestation of interest in their person. Aggression allow itself to be shown only in extreme cases.
The Persians have a luxurious long thin wool that requires daily care. Otherwise, it falls off, stiffons are formed on the undercoat, and this lump into a decent look becomes incredibly difficult.
Therefore, the Persians should be combed out every day using two types of combs: with rare teeth for the main wool and with frequent teeth to care for the undercoat.
Persians do not like to wash, so water procedures become a test of strength both for them and for the owners.
Conditions of detention
Persians do not show excessive activity and prefer to act only if necessary. Therefore, if you do not force them to move, they have problems with excess weight. The desired load will provide daily games, which should become a familiar ritual for both a cat and for the owner.
Cats of this breed are not torn outside and do not really like to walk. Although they will not refuse a short walk.
It is very important to properly organize a place to rest Persian. It should be low, be soft, warm and located near the owner. In this case, the cat will feel calm.
