Cheeky

The Persian breed standard calls for roundness all over. Ears are to be small and rounded into the head. The eyes are to be round and open, with a sweet expression. And head should be round with doming on the top head.
In order to achieve this roundness, we must do a little trimming and sculpting. Otherwise a Persian will become overgrown and wolfie looking – a wild, natural look that is more in keeping with the Maine Coon but certainly not the Persian.

To give you an idea………..

nd then there were cheeks. Notice how the roundness of the face now sits atop the full ruff, so that the ruff actually forms a “frame” around her head. If she’d open her eyes, there would be the overall roundness that the breed standard calls for.
Another photo showing the defined cheeks offset by the ruff. If only she'd open her eyes. Cats are never agreeable when it comes to photo shoots!

Please note that the Himalayan and the Exotic both share the same face/head standard as the Persian.
