Himalayan History

The history of the Himalayan is well known and documented.  Experimental breeding of Himalayans took place in the United States and England as far back as the early 1920's when the Persian and Siamese breeds were bred together, but actual recognition as a purebred cat did not come until 1957 in USA.  The name Himalayan because their coat patterns were similar to that of the rabbits and goats with the same colouring found in the Himalayans in Asia.  Early Himalayan cats looked more like Siamese but now have the same head and body type as other Persians.

Himalayan Description

The Himalayan is one of the most popular of all Persians.  They have a round head, short nose, large round eyes, small ears and heavy boned, cobby body of the Persian coupled with coloured points like Siamese. One of the most striking characteristics is their eye colour, which is vivid blue.

Himalayan Coat and Colour
Point colours include red point seal point, chocolate point, blue point, lilac point, tortie point, blue-cream point. Tabby points are also possible and becoming more popular.  The Himalayan has a coat is long and thick, and requires daily combing and regular bathing, so this is not an easy care breed. They are also best kept as indoor cats.


Himalayan Personality

Along with their striking appearance, Himalayans have a wonderfully outgoing and engaging personality being extremely affectionate, playful and endearing.  Many Himalayan fanciers would say they are the most outgoing of all Persian cats.
