History

You can read about the Persian breed here. The Golden variation appeared in the 1920s in the UK. In the USA the Golden Persian has been recognized as a breed since 1970.

The original appearence of a Golden Persian, in a chinchilla litter, was considered a 'mistake' and they were called ‘Brownies’ and ignored. Fortunately since then breeders have embraced the color variation and established breeding programs to get the Golden recognised.
