History of the Persian Kittens
There’s no doubt about it, Persian Kittens are one of the oldest domesticated cat breeds.
It is not fully clear when Persian Kittens first appeared, but the first documented ancestor of this long-haired cat was in Italy in 1620.
Recent research has found that present-day Persians are in fact descended from cats bred in Western Europe rather than their Near Eastern cousins.
Today there are two main types of Persian kittens: the traditional or doll-face and the Peke-face and ultra type.
The Doll-Face is essentially the most traditional of the breed, without the extreme features of the more recently developed, flat-faced peke-face and ultra types.
In general the former is more popular amongst pet owners and the latter more favored by those who show their cats.

Like most cats, the essentials are pretty much the same, but there is one really important factor when it comes to Persians: Grooming! They needs lots of grooming!
Persian kittens are gentle, quiet cats who like a serene environment and people who treat them kindly.
