The birth of the Cameo Persians was initially not a desired outcome in breeding programs, and in fact came about quite by accident. Thankfully the aesthetic of the breed was valued and in the 1950’s it became officially recognised as a breed of its own in the United States.
The coat on this breed of cat is what clearly defines it from its closely related Chinchilla counterparts.
