Cat Breed Description

The Himalayan cat breed has the stocky body type, long hair, and placid temperament of the Persian, but has the pointed pattern of the Siamese. The Himalayan started in the 1930s when breeders wanted to blend the body type of the Persian cat with the striking colorpoint markings of the Siamese.

The Himalayan personality is very docile, gentle, and calm, though they do enjoy play. "Docile" does not mean "inactive"! Their coats are long, luxuriant, and mat easily. Daily grooming is required to keep their coats free of painful mats.
