Persian Cat - what is this breed?

The Persian Cat is a long-haired breed of cat cha­ra­cte­rized by its round face and short muzzle. It is the gla­mor puss of the cat world and is pro­ba­bly one of the most po­pu­lar cat breeds pe­di­greed in the world. Most people carry an image of a white Pers­ian in their heads, but the Pers­ian comes in nu­me­rous strik­ing co­lors and patterns. He is high main­te­nance and he has some health issues, but for many his looks and per­so­na­lity over­come those draw­backs.
