Well then. Here's some information/knowledge I would like to share.

THE CAT
The cat (Felis catus), also known as the domestic cat or house cat to distinguish it from other felines, is a small carnivorous species of crepuscular mammal that is often valued by humans for its companionship and its ability to hunt vermin. It has been associated with humans for at least 9,500 years


Did you know?

aahh~! biology and facts! lol. love it. kawaii shironeko. XD *teehee* nyaa~

anyway, i'll add. :D


Persian Cat



Origin of breed
Persian cats have been first brought to Europe in the XVI century from Iran. Their appearance then differed greatly from today's standard. Hundreds of years of selective breeding made Persians cobbier cats with drastically shorter muzzle. It's 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 long hair was introduced through hybridization with Pallas cat. Recent research however refute this theory.

Appearance
A show-quality Persian has an extremely long thick coat, short legs, a wide head with the ears set far apart, large eyes, and an extremely foreshortened muzzle. The breed was originally established with a short (but not non-existent) muzzle, but over time this feature has become extremely exaggerated, particularly in North America, and Persians with the more extreme brachycephalic head type are susceptible to a number of health problems (specifically affecting their sinuses and breathing) caused by it.

Some even say that Wikipedia is over-exaggerating things.
Keeping it simple.

(But I still read it. They use sssssooooo dramatic words that I can vividly imagine what it's like. Even more than my expectations)

lol I understand the sentiment =3

I don't find wikipedia very hard to understand though ^^; and it is true that it contains too much information. It depends on what you seek to know. The only problem that I see with wikipedia is that users can edit it so the informations is not entirely credible; however, I doubt that would apply to information of cats.

Yeah, me too. It's kind of easy. But not all people has time reading long paragraphs. (Maybe ctrl+F in seeking out specific info will help, but not all users know of it)

Yes, not all of the information is that credible. On topics of cats, I don't see why people would crank it up and make it a prank topic. Except for that spin-off of wikipedia, that uncyclopedia that's full of racism and profanities. =_=
