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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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


HAMPERING:


If one of your humans is engaged in some activity and the other is idle, stay with the busy one. This is called "helping," otherwise known as "hampering." Following are the rules for "hampering:"

1) When supervising cooking, sit just behind the left heel of the cook. You cannot be seen and thereby stand a better chance of being stepped on and then picked up and comforted.

2) For book readers, get in close under the chin, between eyes and book, unless you can lie across the book itself.

3) For paperwork, lie on the work in the most appropriate manner so as to obscure as much of the work as possible or at least. Pretend to doze, but every so often reach out and slap the pencil or pen.

4) For people paying bills or working on income taxes or Christmas cards, keep in mind the aim: to hamper! First, sit on the paper being worked on. When dislodged, watch sadly from the side of the table. When activity proceeds nicely, roll around on the papers, scattering them to the best of your ability. After being removed for the second time, push pens, pencils, and erasers off the table, one at a time.

5) When a human is holding the newspaper in front of him/her, be sure to jump on the back of the paper. Humans love to jump.

6) When human is working at computer, jump up on desk, walk across keyboard, bat at mouse pointer on screen and then lay in human's lap across arms, hampering typing in progress.
