The Persian cat (Persian: ???? ?????? Gorbe Irâni) is a long-haired breed of cat characterized by its round face and short muzzle. It is also known as the Persian Longhair. In Middle East they are widely known as Iranian cat and in Iran they are known as Shirazi cat.The first documented ancestors of the Persian were imported into Italy from Iran (Persia) around 1620.The exact history of the Persian cat does seem to be a bit of a mystery but many of these long-haired cats were seen in hieroglyphics. The story has it that these long-haired cats were then imported into Europe as their popularity grew and breeding took place in Italy and France.

The Persian cat was first presented at the world’s first organised cat show in 1871 in London, England, before making it’s way to the United States of America in the early 1900’s. The Persian cat breeding standards have always called for a cat with a short face, but it’s important to note that the Persian cat originally had a much longer nose than the flat-faced Persians of today.

Hereditary polycystic kidney disease is prevalent in the breed, affecting almost half the population in some countries.

In 2015 it was ranked as the 2nd most popular breed in the United States according to the Cat Fanciers’ Association. The first is the Exotic breed.
