About the Persian

The Persian cat has a sweet, gentle nature and is quiet and easy to live with. They are happy to be combed and petted by children, but are unlikely to join in boisterous games with them.

Persians are creatures of habit and prefer calm atmospheres and gentle handling. They like the security of being on the ground and do not often climb. They eagerly play with toys, but are equally happy to lie quietly in a favorite spot.
