The Persian cat is one of the worlds oldest known breed of cats. While the early history isn’t entirely known, it is generally accepted that the early cats came from Persia (now Iran) and Turkey. Italian traveller Pietro della Valle is credited with bringing the first Persian cats back to Europe, arriving in his homeland of Italy in 1620 with them.

By the early 1800’s the Persian had become a popular breed in Europe and the first Persian cats arrived in America in the late 1800’s.
