A black persian should have large,
round copper or dark orange
colored eyes. Jet black hair often
does not develop until the cat is
over 6 months old.  Tabby
markings, and white specks in the
fur often disappear by this time.
In the persian world, a gray cat is not
gray but "blue". Blue is the most
popular of the colors, there are even
shows devoted totally to this variety.
Blue is usually closest to the breed
standard and so is often used to
improve other color varieties.
Eyes should be large round, and
copper colored.
A true example of this color is pure red and
exhibits no tabby markings.  This is almost
impossible to breed and the majority of reds do
show some markings,  particularly on the face.  
In the best of show cats the markings are largely
hidden by the diffusion of the long haired coat.  
The red was originally reffered to as the Orange,
but because the deep red coloring was most
favored this variety's name was changed to Red.
Cream
Torties are always female.  It is believed
that this color originated by breeding
imported long haired cats and short
haired non pedigree tortoiseshells.  The
color should be a mix of rich red, cream
and black patching, a cream or red
blaze running from nose to forehead is
particularly sought after
.
The coat of this persian is a mix of pastel
blue and cream.  Blue-Creams are always
female.  The color is a cross of two
self-colored cats, the blue and the
cream.  The eyes should be large, round,
and deep copper or orange in color.
Cream & White

undersides, chest, and muzzle. These cats

Daily grooming is essential to keep their coats
beautiful.   At first they were Angora type, but
from the mid-nineteenth century Angoras were
interbred with Persians to produce the
contemporary white Persian.  As a result the
Angora became extremely rare.
Color is a pure glistening white. Nose leather and
paw pads: pink. Eye color: deep blue or brilliant
copper. Odd-eyed whites shall have one blue and
one copper eye with equal color depth.
Cream is the dilute of red and just as with red,
cream kittens are also born with slightly darker
buff-cream tabby markings. Unless the kitten is a
tabby, the markings typically disappear when the
adult coat starts to grown in at about nine months
of age. The lightest pale shade is most preferred.  
Pink nose leather and paw pads.  Copper eyes.
Red body color with a deeper color
of red tabby markings with the lips
and chin being the same color as the
rings round the eyes.  The nose
leather and paw pads are brick red
in color.  Copper eyed.
Body color pale cream. Buff or cream tabby
markings darker than the ground color to
offer good contrast, yet the contrast remains
within the dilute color range.  The lips and
chin the same shade as the rings around the
eyes with pink colored nose leather and paw
pads. Copper eyed.
