This page dedicated to Rusty Human,
in CapeTown South Africa who lost her battle with cancer in 2002...in
loving memory. We will never forget you...my dear friend.
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
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.
Look what Cleo got!!
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.
