Persian cats can safely be called the most glamorous of all cats, but there is a lot more to them than their thick, long fur and captivating eyes. Persian kittens are not just adorable, but also have strong and distinct personalities. They are among the oldest and most popular cat breeds. If you are considering buying a Persian kitten, you should be aware of some their personality traits mentioned below. If you do not have any such plans yet, read on and you will probably make up your mind to bring home one of these playful kittens!
Persian cats are quiet and peace-loving
Persian cats are much like us introverts – they are quiet, love their space, appreciate peace and are comfortable only around a trusted few. These kittens love being treated like royalty (which cat does not?) and deserve that kind of attention as well. They may not demand much from you except some quality time on your lap, and we don’t see any reason why you would not want to do that! They are playful, but their playtime does not involve ripping apart clothes or climbing curtains. They would rather take their time exploring different areas of the house or biting on catnip-filled toys.
Persian kittens may not immediately open up to your guests, but once they win your Persian kitten’s trust, they will only find reasons to head to your place. Persian kittens prefer peaceful household, but can also adapt to noisy ones provided they are given attention.
They do not like sudden changes
Persian kittens take some time to adjust to new surroundings and changes around them. So if you want to introduce them to a new routine or a new member in the house, the process should be gradual. Persian kittens do not appreciate sudden changes.
They are understanding
They will wait for you by the door when you take a little longer to get home or will settle for the chair if they find you busy working on your laptop.
They are inactive, but show occasional burst of energy
Persian cats can spend hours together in the same place. They do not like to move around much, though their cat behavior takes over them every now and then when you will find them mindlessly running around the house (even if it’s 2 in the morning!). So if you are the kind of person who may not be able to dedicate a considerable amount of time to your pet, your Persian kitten will understand and accept it. These cats are also not very adventurous, so you can safely leave for work without worrying about your belongings getting torn or damaged or your cat missing from the house.
Persian cats are known to be lazy, so it is important to ensure that they indulge in some form of exercise. Yes, they enjoy doing nothing, but get them into the habit of playing with you or with other cats in the house (if any) to keep them active and fit.
Persian cats require more maintenance and grooming compared to other cat breeds. Their long fur feels great to touch, but will also have to be brushed a few times per week to avoid tangling.
