The Boy. 1 of our two cats. He is always coming home dirty, scratched up & missing chunks of fur (notice the 5 or six claw marks on his nose). I like this pic of him. He does have a extremely dark side and I think I got a bit of it in this image.

Garley the Persian cat
Image by arash_rk
The Persian (Persian: گربه ایرانی ) is one of the oldest breeds of cat. In Britain, it is called the Longhair or Persian Longhair. A Persian with out an established and registered pedigree is classed as a domestic longhair cat.
The 1st documented ancestors of the Persian have been imported from Persia into Italy in 1620 by Pietro della Valle, and from Turkey into France by Nicholas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc at about the exact same time. From France they quickly reached Britain. The longhaired cats from Persia had been interbred with Turkish Angoras. Their look then differed tremendously from today’s normal. Hundreds of years of selective breeding made Persians cobbier cats with drastically shorter muzzle. It is not clear when longhair cats (in general) first appeared, as there are no African Wildcats (believed to be ancestors of domesticated cats) with that kind of fur. There have been claims that the gene responsible for lengthy hair was introduced by means of hybridization with Pallas cat. Recent research even so refutes this theory[four].
