Happy & content
Persians are quiet cats, easygoing and generally get along with other pets and family members although boisterous children should be supervised with kittens. Strictly an indoor cat, this breed thrives of human companionship and it is recommended the Chinchilla be housed indoors, unless supervised or on a harness.
Grooming and genetics
This exceptionally pretty breed should be combed daily to avoid the coat knotting and matting. Special attention needs to be paid to the under arms, stomach and tail area, where the fur may run and knots occur more commonly. Some Chinchilla Persians may have runny eyes; this is easily kept clean by gently wiping clean with a wipe and warm water. This is due to their flat faces, some Persians may have problems during hot weather and are best kept indoor. If this is not possible perhaps get their coat clipped off for the hotter months, this makes a happy contented kitty. The long white coat does shed hair, which will become worse in spring as they are shedding the heavy winter coat.
