Pretty cats, but a total pain

I have owned two Persians, and encountered many others. I always thought they were pretty and lovely, but after owning two I know they are not as they seem. The two we owned were Ehud and Krystal. Ehud was okay, very independent, quiet, and a bit odd. He loved having baths. He was only with us for five years, before he disappeared one weekend. Krystal on the other hand disliked everyone and everything. I couldn't brush her and she would bite me if I tried. She had been declawed by a previous owner I am fairly sure this caused trauma. She refused to eat anything but canned food, which was fine but expensive. I think if a person is looking for a pretty cat to take to take to cat shows a Persian can be a great animal to show, but if you are looking for a friendly pet to have around the house a Persian is not the best cat.
