The Persian cat breed, probably the most well-known. iconic, and easily recognized cat breed. Persian kittens are available in a veritable rainbow of colors and patterns.
Persian kittens with the colorpoint (“Siamese”) pattern are usually called Himalayans. Individuals looking for this pattern are encouraged to consult the Himalayanbreeders’ list as well. In GCCF, the Persian is known as the Longhair, and the Himalayan is known as the Colorpoint Longhair. The British standard calls for a more moderate face type than the typical American-style Persian.
Solid chocolate and solid lavender Persians are known the Kashmir in CFF. It is still called Kashmir in some older cat breed books. CFF also makes a distinction between the Persian and the Pekefaced Persian. A Pekefaced Persian is a Persian with an extreme flat face, like that of a Pekingese dog.
Some breeders describe their Persians as a doll-faced Persian, which means that they have a more moderate face type than the flatter-faced show-type Persian.
The Persian breed are one of the oldest established breeds, with documentation in their native land dating back to the early 1500s. Early examples of the breed were among participants in 1871 in England and were among the first cats registered with CFA when that association began in 1909.
The Persian personality a docile, gentle, affectionate cat, excellently suited for an indoor life. Although placid, they are playful in their own way.
Many Persian cats carry the colorpoint (Himalayan) coat pattern trait but do not show it themselves, which is referred to as a “CPC” (colorpoint carrier). This distinction is irrelevant to a Persian pet buyer, but important knowledge for a Persian/Himalayan breeder.
Persians’ long hair mats easily. Extensive daily grooming is required, at least 10-15 minutes per day, with a thorough one-hour grooming session weekly to keep the coat in good condition.
Interesting fact: The Persian breed is the most popular breed of cat, and perhaps the most recognizeable. Although many people cannot name more than a few cat breeds, almost all of them will be able to name the Persian. There are so many Persians in the show hall that in many associations, color classes (solid, tabby, silver, etc) are treated as separate breeds for judging. Annual registrations of Persian kittens of a single color often outnumber the kitten registrations of entire breeds.
Associations: The Persian cat is accepted in all associations.

Interesting. Ocicats were also an “accident”
2006-07-31 20:28:44 by Lokikat“In 1964 the original Ocicat was the unexpected result of an experimental breeding which attempted to produce an Aby-point Siamese. Virginia Daly, noted CFA breeder living in Michigan, knew the possibility of getting the sought after Aby-point and was willing to invest the time she knew it would take to breed the two generations that were necessary. But the ivory kitten with golden spots was a surprise! Mrs. Daly’s daughter named the breed the Ocicat, because of its resemblance to the ocelot. Tonga, the first Ocicat, was neutered and sold as a pet. When the Detroit newspaper publicized the lovely spotted cat and when noted geneticist, Dr
I never thought of airborn

The parasite protocol that many breeders in the US and UK follow involves treating all kittens with Baycox for Coccidia before showing any symptoms.
These same breeders use caution and test before bringing cats into their catteries, but things can and do happen.
Additionally, testing for coccidia does produce false negatives and cats can be shedding oocysts in the stool, I believe, without showing clinical symptoms or showing symptoms believed to just be IBD.
I would extend QT for any cat showing diarrhea regardless of negative test results, and I have done so in the past until it was proven to be sensitivity to a certain food
