The orange Persian cat is one of many striking colors of the breed best known for its angry or pouty expression. A beautiful flowing coat and sweet, gentle personality make the Persian one of the most treasured felines in the world.

Its name is derived from the assumed country of origin. Playful, but not overly demanding, the orange Persian cat is able to adapt to a variety of home conditions and is accepting of other cats and animals. Common as a show cat, the luxurious coat requires frequent combing and bathing. As of 2014, the Persian is the most popular cat registered with the Cat Fanciers Association.
