To its devoted followers the white persian combines all the virtue of its type: glamor, a noble expression, fur that is silky to the touch, and a sweet tranquil nature.

Apart from a few minutes of daily grooming, your lovely white persian may require a routine regimen of bathing (monthly or so) to keep her from any staining. Kittens that get bathed early on, are typically very easy to groom.




Although pure white cats of the Angora type were the first longhaired cats to be introduced into Europe as long ago as the 16th century, the modern white persian is of the Victorian era. It was developed by crossbreeding Angoras with persians. The breed was shown in London in 1903 and has increased in popularity since.




White persians are fastidious cats who take pride in their appearance, regualarly cleaning themselves. They are calm and affectionate and make a superb pet for those confined indoors - a classic salon cat.




Variety is defined by eye color which can be blue eyed, copper eyed or odd-eyed. Deafness is associated with the gene for white fur, and can occur in blue eyed cats most frequently, but can also be found in odd-eyed AND even in copper eyed cats.

Deafness in no way makes this beautiful creature less of a companion, although precautions must be taken to never allow it to roam outside.

Copper Eyed White Persian

She was a stunning cat in her youth!! As an old gal, she dropped weight, and had IBD since she arrived here at age 16 wks...and sadly, was never able to have kittens. And so it ends...but no one can take our memories.

Quote from "The Rules for Cats," by Fancy Mews
There are several steps to handling dogs:

  • When a strange dog enters your home, climb to a safe height
    and look both terrified and hurt.
  • Keep a straight face as the dog is scolded for frightening you.
  • Allow yourself to be coaxed down with an edible treat.
  • When no one is looking, swipe the dog across the nose.
  • Repeat steps 1-4 as often as necessary, until the dog is permanently removed.

Show your appreciation for freshly pressed clothes or folded items by taking time out for a nap on these items. Make sure to leave your mark by shedding as much fur on them as possible.
