Nearly correct but cat breeders intervened.

Question 1 Explanation:
There may be a genuine origin going back thousands of years in Iran (formerly Persia). If there is it would be cats imported from the Syria or Turkey thousands of years ago and they gradually evolved (mutated) as street and community cats. But that early history has been eradicated by breeders selectively breeding in the US and Europe over 150 years beginning in the middle of the 19th century. CLICK THIS TO READ MORE.
