Blue Persian

from The Ultimate Cat Book by Daivid Taylor

Of all the persians, the Blue Persian's popularity has been the most enduring. One hundred examples of the breed were entered in the 1899 London cat show and today there are special shows in Britain devoted solely to the Blue Persian.

Visit the Blue Persian Society page

 

Carefully controlled breeding has ensured that the Blue Persian most closely represents the standard laid down for Persians and as a result it is frequently used to improve the type of other color varieties.

Baboo (her new nickname) is a yakky kitty....

History of the Blue Persian

Although longhaired blue cats have been featured in artists' impressions for several centuries, and were well-known in Renaissance Italy, the modern variety did not come into its own until the late nineteenth century.

 

The breed probably originated from crossbreeding between white persians and black persians and early examples showed tabby markings.

 

 

Babs!

 

The Foundation of the Blue Persian Society in Britain in 1901 gave the breed considerable prstige which was further enhanced by the patronage of Queen Victoria.
Babs is a good mother!

Temperament

The Blue Persian has a well-deserved reputation for being calm, considerate and above all, gentle.

The BLUE that gives the breed its name is in afact a dilute form of black that may be more accurately described as blue-gray.

 

The CFA breed standard describes the white persian as follows:

BLUE: blue, lighter shade preferred, one level tone from nose to tip of tail. Sound to the roots. A sound darker shade is more acceptable than an unsound lighter shade. Nose leather and paw pads: blue. Eye color: brilliant copper.

Pictured below are some of Baboo's kittens....she makes very beautiful blue babies!!

Quote from "The Rules for Cats," by Fancy Mews

Humans are often restless during sleep. Discourage their potentially harmful thrashing by remaining awake and alert. At the first sign of movement, leap onto the moving limb with your claws out.

It is often difficult to tell if a human is dead or merely sleeping. Pouncing firmly and forcefully on the chest will act as CPR in case the heart has actually stopped.

NEVER cough up a furball on a floor that needs cleaning. Wait for a surface that has just been cleaned and polished, preferably a white or beige carpet.
