Q: What is their temperament?
A: The Traditional Persian (Doll Face) is the ultimate lap cat. They love to cuddle, yet are playful and inquisitive.
Q: What is needed to maintain them?
A: A daily brushing or combing is required to keep the coat from matting, since this is a long haired cat.
Q: What colors do they have?
A: Every color imaginable is available. Exotic color names add to the glamour of this cat with the glorious coat.
Ample proof that the Traditional Persian (Doll Face) is the true original of this respected breed is amply provided in old documents. The following evidence covers the time frame between 1800 and 1902. These treasured photos are among the very first printed and ignite the knowledge of the past. From the very first descriptions, from direct quotes of breeders who first discovered the breed, and on to these photos we learn the peeked face Persian was never a part of the breed, nor intended to be from the very beginning.
NOW: Go to the history page for the Traditional Persians with lots of old photos. It takes a while to load, so be patient!
