Fun Fact

The Persian cat is one of the oldest natural cat breeds still alive today. Originating in Persia (modern-day Iran), these cats date back to ancient Egyptian times. They were imported to western Europe during the 1600s. Considered very rare, royalty and noble families favored these cats. Queen Victoria of England had many cats, but one of her favorites was White Heather described as a fluffy, white Persian.

Tips for Naming Your Cat

When thinking of a name for your cat, make sure you pick something that has lasting power as Persian cats can live from 10 to 18 years. Also, choose something you feel comfortable sharing with your friends, family, and cat's veterinary office. You can get inspiration from anywhere, such as pop culture icons, movies with cats, or even fur color. For example, Ebony, Shadow, or Onyx are some great names for a black cat.
