Though the cats likely date back to 17th-century Persia, they were officially recognized in the 19th century. With selective breeding, Persian cats come in many varieties, including the Himalayan, exotic shorthair, and flat-faced Persian.

A Word of Caution About Kitten Mills
While most people have heard of puppy mills, kitten mills are equally insidious and common. As bans and awareness grow for puppy mills, mill breeders turned to cats and small animals to produce high volumes of animals to make a quick profit.
Like puppy mills, cat or kitten mills keep animals in horrendous conditions, often with extreme temperatures, poor bedding, and inadequate ventilation. This can lead to impaired emotional and mental development, skin and fur conditions, and chronic illnesses. Kittens may also suffer from genetic illnesses since parents are bred without concern for promoting healthy bloodlines.
As expected, kitten mills don’t advertise themselves as such. Potential pet parents must do their homework to choose reputable breeders with healthy animals and ethical practices.
Here are some questions you should ask when choosing a breeder.
Kitten mill breeders are good at hiding their practices. If a breeder hesitates to answer questions, introduce you to parent cats, show the facility, or produce veterinary records, proceed cautiously.
