What is the Persian cat temperament like? Persians are one of the earliest cat breeds and have been amongst the most popular of cats for more than 100 years. They are beautiful– of course–but Persian cats are also so popular due to their great personalities.
Here is what the Cat Fanciers’ Association says about the Persian cat:
Persian Cat Temperament
Their sweet, gentle, personalities blend into most households once they feel secure in their new environment. Creatures of habit, they are most at home in an atmosphere of security and serenity, but with love and reassurance, can easily adapt to the most boisterous of households. Their quiet, melodious voices are pleasant and non-abrasive. They communicate delightfully with their large expressive eyes and make charming pets for all ages. Persians have short heavily-boned legs to support their broad, short bodies. They like to have their feet firmly planted and are not given to high jumping and climbing. Playful but never demanding, they love to pose and will drape themselves in a favorite window or chair, enhancing the decor in much the same way as a treasured painting. Persians are tremendously responsive and become a constant source of joy and delight to their owners.
