Persian cats have been a popular breed for many years, with even Queen Victoria owning two blue Persians. Long-haired with cobby bodies and wide, 'flat' faces, they're still one of the most popular, albeit high-maintenance, breeds with cat lovers all over the world. Daily grooming is required to keep their long, silky coats looking good, and this regular grooming also minimises the chance of them suffering from hairballs - a common complaint among long-haired cats.
One of the quietest breeds, the Persian is the most suited of all cats to having an indoor lifestyle. Never happier than when receiving fuss and attention from his owners, he might occasionally decide to play with a select toy, but overall he prefers the quiet life.
