Persian Cat: Chocolate & Lilac Color

Chocolate & Lilac

Chocolate or lilac Persians? Can it be possible? I, as an owner, breeding Persians and Exotics, pose myself such a problem quite recently. Of course they exist, if to see from genetic point of view. These colors are included into standard, there is their description, but where are they? By all accounts from abroad, they have such animals but for some reason they are more often met in pedigrees of British cats as experimental partners for leading new color into the breed, but not like exhibition stars.

The Importance of a Pedigree


I personally think that pedigrees, and what they consist of, are extremely important for every breeding program, whether of show Persians, Doll-Persians, Maine Coons, Birmans or any other breed. The research and proper use of pedigrees as a breeding tool are the essance of ethical breeding. Quality of lines and their reputation are things to be carefully considered in a breeding program and should not be taken lightly.
