PERSIAN CAT -
The Persian Cat
has been among the most popular of breeds generation after decade going back into the late 1800’s. The Persian is gentle and affectionate and though they appreciate and need your attention and caresses yet they are not very demanding. They won’t come to you insisting you pet or play with them. (But they’ll love it if you do.)
Their most salient characteristic, at least to someone not overly familiar with the breed, is their smushed in face and all that fur but anyone who knows a Persian sees their sweetness, affection, loyalty and docility. And their very real need for grooming. Below we provide you with good links for learning about this cat. Then we simply want to show you what are the best designs of cat fountains for the Persian and why. It has to do with that smushed face and all that fur.
There are a lot of longhair cat breeds besides Persians
and some also have flat faces so all this applies to them as well, Breeds such as:
- British Shorthair
- Exotic Shorthair
- Scottish Fold
- Selkirk Rex
The flat face and long fur makes drinking a bit of a challenge if the fur is to stay dry and clean.
The flat face requires the Persian & co. to have to have his entire head very close to the water so the water source should be quite small to permit her muzzle and tongue to access the water without the entire face being involved.
This Brackentree provides just these conditions as this image and the video demonstrate.
At the bottom are more designs specifically made for the Persian, though are excellent for any longhair cat and in fact, any cat but guaranteed to keep your Persia dry.
