#2) In North America, Persians are considered the most popular breed. They are indeed my second favorite, second only to the Exotic Short hair breed--, which is basically a short haired Persian! People think they are in ownership of a beautiful cat, but in reality, they are in fact the one(s) being owned. Remember it is reported that Persians are descended from royalty.
#3) Persians have sweet personalities, although every once in a while, a true alpha prima donna will emerge who thinks all other beings on this earth are there to please her (and on the even more rare occasion -him.) Persians are not, in general lap cats. They are more sit -beside -their- person- on- the -couch cats.
#4) Persians have petite but solid boned legs to support their wide diminutive bodies. Liking their feet firmly planted on the ground makes for Persians to be more on the ground cats than that of the Siamese breed-- climbers and jumpers. Unless jumping or climbing is required to reach you, a friend, seek out trouble, or their favorite resting place, Persians will not typically seek higher ground. They do not have survival instincts therefore; these purr angels are not meant to be outside cats.
