A gorgeous longhair breed with a pansylike face, the Persian looks like a fluff ball but under the coat is a muscular, sturdy body. With her sweet personality, the Persian is a charming pet for all ages. The breed features solid, bicolour, calico and tabby varieties, which include a multitude of colours and patterns. The Persian Solid may be coloured white, blue, black, red, cream, chocolate, and lilac. All have brilliant copper eyes, except the pristine white solid colour, which may be copper, deep blue or a combination of blue and copper. The Persian Bicolour features a combination of colours as well as patterns of tabby. All have brilliant copper eyes, except the silver tabby with white, which may have green or hazel eyes. The Persian Calico has a white coat splashed with vivid patches of red and black. The dilute calico is patched with blue and cream, and chocolate and lilac calicos have patches of chocolate and red or lilac and cream, respectively. The Persian Tabby, known for being extroverted and fun, comes in three patterns, classic, mackerel and patched. This breed requires daily brushing and occasional baths and should strictly be an indoor pet.
