It can’t be transmitted to humans (even children) or to dogs or any other species., FIVFIVFIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) preferentially infects white blood cells which are an essential part of a cat's immune system. The virus disables or destroys the white blood cells, and leaves its host susceptible to infections. Once a cat is infected with FIV it is infected for life and can transmit the virus if it bites another cat.

PKD is a slowly progressive disease. It clinically shows up later in life (late onset), with enlarged kidneys and kidney dysfunction on average at seven years of age. The condition is inherited and cysts are present from birth. The size of cysts can vary from less than one millimetre to several centimetres, with older animals having larger and more numerous cysts.

Persian cats and Himalayan cats, with their long flowing coats and open pansy-like faces are the number one breed in popularity. Their sweet and gentle personalities are compatible with most households once they feel secure in their new environment. Creatures of habit, they are most at home in an atmosphere of security and serenity. With love and reassurance Persian kittens can easily adapt to the most boisterous of households. Persian kittens are tremendously responsive and become a constant source of joy and delight to their owners. Playful but never demanding, they love to pose and will drape themselves in a favourite window or chair.
Persians long flowing coats require an indoor, protected environment. Proper maintenance requires a weekly run-through with a metal comb to eliminate the potential drawbacks of tangles and hair balls. An occasional bath, attempted only after a complete comb-through and clipping of the nail tips, will keep the coat clean, healthy and beautiful. It is wise to establish the routine of the bath when they are young. Keeping the Persian indoors also keeps it safe from transmission of disease and parasites, as well as the dangers of urban life. The large eyes do mean that a certain amount of tearing is normal, and a daily face wash is recommended. With an annual trip to a trusted veterinarian, and good nutrition and care, the Persian cat can live as a family member for easily 15 years, and some surpassing 20 years.
