Persian Cats – Gorgeous and Dignified

Imagine a luxurious palace interior ornamented with gold and ivory. And imagine a well-groomed cat that walks slowly towards the couch covered with purple velvet. Chances are high you have just imagined a Persian cat, in all her prideful glory.

Persian cats are one of the most popular breeds in UK and US. These cats are easy to recognize – they have a round face and a short muzzle. But the main thing everyone knows about them is they are really long-haired pets. They are deemed to be calm, quiet and easily adaptive.

But due to the breed peculiarities, these cats require additional care. If you plan on getting one, be ready to check her eyes every now and then and to watch the nutrition carefully (industrially made food may not be good for Persian cats because of the possible urinary tract problems). But what is going to be really a time-consuming routine is the grooming. We’ve addressed the Persian Cats community on Facebook and one of the admins, Aima, was very kind to tell us about her pets.

One of the ways NOT to get your cat blind

If your cat ever gets blind there are chances you won’t even notice it right away. Cats are very smart animals and they have a good memory. They could get from place A to place B with their eyes closed. Their memory, together with other senses (smell, hearing, touch, balance) give them the ability to behave almost as normal cats even when their vision is not 100% healthy. A blind cat can still remember perfectly how to get on the sofa or how much she has to jump up to breathe some fresh air from your window.
