Artist's Description

“Black Persian Cat With Yellow Eyes” by Catherine Sherman.

This beautiful Persian cat looks very thoughtful.

The Persian cat is a long-haired breed of cat characterized by its round face and short muzzle. It is sometimes called the Longhair or Persian Longhair. It is also known as the Shirazi cat or Iranian cat, particularly in the Middle East.

The first documented ancestors of the Persian were imported into Europe from Iran (Persia) around 1620. Recognized by the cat fancy since the late 19th century, it was developed first by the English, and then mainly by American breeders after the Second World War. Some cat fancier organizations’ breed standards include the Himalayan and Exotic Shorthair as variants of this breed, while others treat them as separate breeds.
