Golden Persian Cats and Kittens

Golden Persian Cats: The Bentley of Persian Cats

Golden Persian cats and Golden Persian kittens are also gentle, loving, and beautiful. While color and conformation are the defining characteristics of the breed, Golden Persian cats and kittens do seem to gravitate toward a quiet, sophisticated demeanor. One could readily equate Golden Persian cats to be the Bentleys of the Persian cat world.

 Golden Persian cats with green eyes can be a strikingly beautiful combination of complementary opposites. They have not only the sweet Persian face and soft voice, but those big green eyes against a gorgeous backdrop of golden yellow will make all but the most callous stop dead in their tracks to admire the grace and beauty of these green–eyed golden Persian cats.

The black tipping may be prominent enough on the tail and legs to give a slight shaded effect. Their coat on the stomach, chest, chin, and ear tuft will be lighter than the undercoat and evenly dilute while their lips, nose, and eyes will be lined with black leather. Chinchilla Golden Persian display green or blue-green eyes with black paw pads and brick red or rose red nose leather. Any eye color other than green or blue-green is not be acceptable according to the standards of the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) for Chinchilla Golden Persians cats.
