The Himalayan is part of the Persian Breed group and is known as one of the oldest breeds. They are sweet natured, gentle, and easygoing cats that get along well with others in a calm household. They share similar physical features with the Persian, such as a luxurious coat, and a flat face with big cheeks, and large, round eyes.
Principal Features of the Himalayan
The Himalayan cat, a medium-sized breed, is a lovable companion admired for its long, silky coat. They are also known as "colorpoint Persians," and their points can have a variety of colors, including lilac, seal, blue, chocolate, flame, and cream, as well as tabby, lynx, or tortoiseshell patterns.
Early breeding operations in the 1950s explored mixing Persian cats with Siamese cats. Marguerita Goforth is credited with contributing to the development of the current Himalayan breed that is familiar to us today. The Himalayan gained its plush coat from the Persian, while the Siamese gave it its deep blue eyes and colorpoint characteristics. To avoid matting, tangles, and hairballs, their lengthy coat needs to be groomed and cared for every day.
