Persian cat history
- As one of the oldest cat breeds, Persian cats can be traced all the way back to the 1600s.
- Like all modern-day domestic cats, the Persian breed is a descendent of the Felis silvestris lybica, a wildcat originally from the Middle East and North Africa.
- The Persian Empire covered a large area of the Near East including modern day Iran and Turkey.
How to care your persian cat
- Coat Maintenance: Start brushing your cat's fur at an young age. To make sure that your Persian cats have a long, silky double-coat which will matt and tangle easily if not brushed daily. This will help detangle their fur and make it easier to brush and wash.
- Ear Cleaning: Warm the olive oil or ear cleaner to body temperature by placing the container in a warm (not hot) pan of water. Use a cotton ball moistened with ear cleaner to gently wipe the cat’s ears. Gently massage the base of the ear for at least a minute, to work the liquid around.
- Eye Cleaning: Most Persian cats have “weepy” eyes and, if left untouched, can stain and build up around the cat’s eyes; sometimes leading to infection. This process turns the tears into a brown sticky substance. All you need is some warm water and cotton pads.
- Hairballs: Your Persian cat will inevitably develop hairballs, but brushing on a regular basis will greatly help prevent them from occurring. Most cats will get hairballs, not just Persians. Of course, a cat with fur as long as a Persian cat is more likely to endure them. Nothing can be done to totally prevent hairballs in cats, but there are things you can do to reduce the likelihood your cat will have hairballs or reduce their frequency.
- Nail trimming: They need to be brushed and combed daily, bathed once or twice a month, and have their nails clipped every ten days to two weeks. Be patient with the cat and if it becomes restless, stop clipping the claws and try again the next day. Front claws should be cut every couple weeks, but back claws grow slower and can be done less often.
- Bathing: A large plastic bowl with a little bit of warm water will be the ideal container to start wetting and gently soaking your cat until they don't try to run away and feel calm and confident. . A Persian cat will begin to look greasy as it becomes dirtier and mats will increase quickly if the cat is not bathed.
- Dental care: Do not try to brush the entire mouth at first. Brushing your Persian’s teeth, as with any cat, will help reduce tartar buildup and prevent dental disease. If all that your pet lets you brush is the outside of the upper teeth, you are still addressing the most important area of periodontal disease – prevention.
