    Everyone agrees that the Persian was high on the list of esteemed "possessions" by royalty, from the king of Persia to the kings and queens of England. In the late 19th century, North America discovered the Persian cat, and it soon became the most popular cat in the United States, an honor it still holds today, throughout the world. These photos of lovely Persian cats are provided by their owners.

    With its glorious long-flowing coat, and a sweet face to match its disposition, it is no wonder the Persian is a favorite pedigreed breed. Persians require a secure, serene environment, but once they feel safe, they will be a constant source of pleasure to their lucky owners. If you're looking for more Persian cat photos, visit the original Persian Cats Photo Album.

    This cat is a Blue Persian, and her name is Azurine Ambrosia Hodge, but she is called Bluie for short. She is two years old and is her owner's little princess. She loves to play hide and seek and carry her toy spider around in her mouth. She has a unique talent where she shakes hands, which her owners find adorable!

    This is Dolly, a three-year-old Seal Point Himalayan. Dolly fancies herself to be an aristocrat and spends most daylight hours sleeping or striking classic poses. Apparently, she does not realize that while asleep, she frequently rolls onto her back and sleeps with her legs spread wide apart, a most unladylike pose. When night comes, she changes into another cat: one that runs full speed from room to room throughout the house for no apparent reason, stopping only for a little rough house if the opportunity presents itself. Through it all, she seems to rely on her great physical beauty to keep her out of trouble. So far, it has worked.

    T.C. might have won the "kitty lottery" when he found his owner, Barbie. The beautiful four-year-old boy, is a Blue Cream Smoke Persian that was rescued at the age of 10 months. Sadly T.C. was born into an unfortunate situation, where had been kept in a basement and then brought into the vet's to be put down. A friend of the owner's, who worked at the clinic, took him home instead, but, as she had so many cats of her own, asked if the owner would take him in. It was love at first sight and both of their worlds are truly a better place!

    Min Min is the daughter of Madylan's Pachat of Pastel (Chinchilla) and Pastel Sophia Loren (White Persian), and is also called Snowflake Mina Reine de Montpellier.

    When Min Min is at her favorite location, she can be found in her bed. She is now 11 years old. Despite her advancing age, she is still highly active and energetic. Min Min still behaves like a little baby. She sleeps with her owner every night, and while doing so, occasionally pokes friendly holes on her owner's chest, neck and face.

    She is known to tap on the keys of her owner's computer, sending e-mails to people without her owner's consent. If you have been receiving e-mails with kitty cat paw prints, they just might be from Min Min. Min Min is currently the proud mother of five Persian kittens. She is still living with all of her children and husband Bub Bub (a Chinchilla Grey Persian), enjoying a happy and majestic life.

    This is Princess, a Persian cat who has mothered two Persian kittens. Although Princess is the sweetest, most gentle cat of all time — just like a real princess — if you try to bathe her you're in for a fight. Suddenly, Princess becomes a mountain lion with more paws than you thought possible.
