Himalayan

Feature image

Docile, sweet and quiet.

Where I'm From

The Himalayan was developed by crossing the Persian with the Siamese, probably around the 1920's.

What I Look Like

The result is a striking breed that shares the appearance of the Persian with its big eyes, short nose and large, round head, combined with the coat colouring and blue eyes of the Siamese.

Himalayans have a thick, long coat all over their body, with a thick ruff around the neck and a full bushy tail.

How I Act

The Himalayan has a spectacular looking coat, but, it needs constant attention.

Daily brushing is necessary to keep the coat clean and tangle-free. They will also shed hair profusely as well as needing a regular face wipe to avoid tear staining.
