How About a Persian Cat?


Although Persian cats like to be near you, they won't follow you around and are happy with their own company.

Like a lot of cats, they are devoted to their owners and immediate family. The grumpy little squashed-up face belies their true nature which is warm and calm.

Like a lot of other cats, they spend a long time grooming and being groomed.


Do Persian Cats Follow You Around?

At times the Persian Cat does appear to be aloof, and they are content to be the only cat in the household.

Some cats will follow their owner from room to room demanding attention or food. However, your Persian will not do that.

When they do meow, it is a soft undemanding sound. Every day they require grooming,

Your Persian's fur can easily become tangled and matted, and this can be prevented through daily brushing.

When you brush your Persian and untangle the fur the cat won't get furballs from over-grooming her/himself. Daily grooming will prevent any problem tangles from occurring.

Severely matted fur will need to be cut away. The grooming serves two purposes, first, your cat will shed copiously when he is not groomed, and there will be fur all over the house.

With regular brushing, the cat maintains a healthy topcoat. if your cat's coat is not kept in optimal condition, the cat may become depressed and anxious constantly trying to groom itself.

From the grooming perspective, the Persian is a high-maintenance cat, and the owner does need to have the time to keep them groomed.


Are Persian Cats Happier in Pairs?

Most cats take a lot of time to accept a new cat into the household, and a Persian cat is no exception. However, if you have two from the same litter, this is the perfect combination and they will get along extremely well.

They will be happy to play in the house with a few toys while you are at work or school. They enjoy a calm environment and don't seem to mind whether they go outside or not, as they are perfectly happy indoors.

When outside, they are easily frightened by loud noises and dogs, and will often sniff around the bushes and then come into the house again.


Do Persian Cats Get on With Other Cats?

Not really, you will need to make careful and gradual introductions between your Persian and your new cat, as when it comes to other cats the Persian appears to prefer to be an only cat.

If you have bought a kitten home they are often energetic and highly active, and a fully grown Persian will not be interested in playing with a Kitten or being teased by a kitten. it is better to keep the two apart until they become used to the other being there.

As a kitten matures his/her behavior will settle and he will become less active when this happens the Persian may accept him.


Are Persian Cats Safe for Babies

No cats are safe to leave unattended with a baby. To start with a cat is always looking for a warm place to sleep, and if he sees the basinet or crib he will think of it as the perfect cat bed.

He will then jump in and go to sleep on top of the baby, if he sits on the baby's head, he could suffocate it.

Baby and cats should only be together under strict supervision, and as the baby becomes a toddler, you will usually notice that the cat avoids the baby as small child behavior is too unpredictable for cats.


Do Persian Cats Get Along Well With Dogs

Sometimes, especially when they are raised together. 

A Persian Cat can get on with a dog, but a lot depends on the dog's behavior. An aggressive active dog is not a good fit with your Persian cat, as we said before they like a calm non-stressful setting.

Observe their behaviors when they play together, and limit their time together until they are used to one another. This may take about a month, and then everything will settle down and they should coexist peacefully.

All cats are different, and an older cat set in their ways may find a dog difficult to live with, while a younger cat may quickly adapt to the changed situation.

A really old cat tends to sleep nearly all day, and if they have become slow-moving and arthritic, they may not be able to get out of the way of a bouncy puppy.

So the cat should be allocated a sunny spot to sleep away from the dog, as it may be too late for the cat to adjust to new family members. Where a younger cat will be fine given time.


The Persian Cat as a Companion, Adoption

Persian cats make an ideal companion for older people. An older person is often happy to sit for long periods and so is the cat.

They can coexist peacefully together and the cat won't make any demands on the person.

The cat rescue association is very helpful in finding an ideal cat for a senior family member who often doesn't have the energy to train a kitten.

So many cats are waiting to be matched with the ideal human, and getting the adoption right is a great community service for both cat and family.


Persian Cats make great pets, and as long as you have the time to groom them, they should live a long and happy life in your home.
