She's one of most beloved and desidered cat: find out more about the Persian cat
Starting from the reports of the explorer Pietro della Valle, who saw her for the first time in mid16th century in Persia, through the ones of the scientist Nicolas de Peiresc, who described “wonderful Azerbaijani cats called angora” a century later, then until today, Persian cats have always been some of the most beloved and popular pets.


Native to the Central Asia steppe, this feline is known for her funny look and long, soft coat: two features which make her particularly nice. Low and wide ears, a flattened face and a thick, tapered tail: seeing a Persian cat walking with “regal” pace between an armchair and a stool at home will always raise a smile from you.

Her thick coat is a genetic heritage which allowed this cat to survive to the cold weather of her native land and lends her a delicate appearance; however, this cat is actually very strong and athletic, despite looking a little bit clumsy sometimes.
In fact, her thick coat hid a stocky and short body, with big bones and strong muscles, in particular on her back and shoulders. Her big paws, short and firm, are hidden by a thick coat too. Her head is round and large, with small, rounded and well distanced ears, the profile is flattened and rounded, with chubby cheeks. All these features give Persian cat a caricatural look which raises a lot of friendliness and tenderness.

Persian cat isn’t carachterised by a well-defined colour: her fur can be coloured in a lot of different shades between grey and brown, with her unique long, bended and super furry wavy tail. Her weight varies from 3 to 6 Kg for males and from 3 to 4 Kg for females.


As a general rule for cats’ nutrition, it’s important to remember that felines are carnivore, so their main nutritional sources must be proteins of animal origin. In addition, cats usually don’t drink much water, and the majority of liquids they get comes from what they eat. Therefore, it is necessary to opt for a nutrition which includes both dry food, which stimulates their thirst, and wet food. Finally, long-haired cats, like the Persian, are then particularly subjected to the formation of hairballs. A specific food including malt extract and vegetable fibres, like Oasy Adult Hairball, is ideal for promoting an effective “dragging” effect, which helps eliminate hairballs from the digestive system.
