    I had no idea that a Persian could live up to twenty years; that’s really awesome! That’s definitely a lot longer than most dogs, which tend to live only to about twelve years. If I got a Persian cat for my two year old daughter, it could still be around when she leaves for college. That’s pretty amazing if you think about it.
