Hi, everybody. I am Min-Min. Oh no! I mean I am Angela, she is Min-Min. Yes, she is Min-Min and she is a white Persian cat.
Now today, we are going to talk about Persians. Persians originate from Persia, which is currently Iran now. Persians are long-hair cats and are generally not easy to take care of. If you want to make sure that your clothes are not full of hair or your house is not full of hair because they shed a lot, but, that does not mean that they are not great companions. They are very loyal and are very, very clean animals. They groom themselves all the time.
In order to take care of them, however, we have to bring them to the groomers regularly. Otherwise, the hair would easily knot up. And the best solution is to calm them everyday, maybe even twice a day and also to take care of the eyes because occasionally they have secretions of the eye.
In order to clean the eyes, my vet gave me a very useful tip. That is to use the contact lens solution, just to wet a little bit on a Q-Tip and use that to wipe the eye. So, I have not done that today, but if we do it she would be perfectly clean with great eyes.
