Comparing Indian and Dutch Persian Cats — 2 Comments

  1. Absolutely – I see the difference and I agree with the article. People who work in the CFA obviously prefer cats to be like teddy bears. I think the simple fact that western persians have hair so long they can’t manage it without human intervention is totally not right and a serious line has been crossed. Furthermore the example of these Netherland persians is not even the most extreme kind. I have seen persians that are so extreme in their physical aspects that it makes these look like regular moggies by comparism.

    How can we preserve or keep track of what we here on POC generally feel to be the more real and healthy version of the breed. Sooner or later we will lose the perspective of where these beautiful cats came from. It seems so wrong. Humans are always chasing things in questionable directions and they apparently don’t stop to look back until it’s too late. IF you walk into a forest where there is no path you must constantly look at the view behind you if you are ever to find your way back to where you started. I’m sorry I always harp on the stupidity of humanity – but it always rears it’s ugly head no matter where you look – at least for me it does, recently.

      This is modern development – the cat fancy is a reflection on the attitudes of modern society. The Indian Persian is more natural and less commercial.

      Genetically, and in appearance, the real, original Persian is far removed from the modern N. American Persian and to a lesser degree the European Persian. One day we will accept the modern Persian cat as the real one. The original will be an historical curiosity.
