Persian cats of Ethereal Persians Cattery

The Persian cat is descendant of a long haired ancestor from Persia, todays Iran. By way of  caravans and boats, the early Persian descendant were taken in by wealthy prestigious family who adored them for their luxurious coats, well mannered personality, and affection-seeking nature. Visionary breeders selectively breed a subset of this cat population into modern day Persians. The longhaired ancestor was a short, broad cat with good bone structure, large round eyes but not exaggerated, and a protruding, well rounded snout. The Persian remains a short, broad cat with good bone structure and large round eyes, but the head is much more rounded and the snout is nearly flush with the rest of the face. A cat closely related to the Persian is the exotic. Ancestral Persians were mixed with Siamese to create modern day Himalayans. However, Himalayans and Persians have strikingly different features. The Himalayans resemble the ancestral Persians much more closely.
