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.
Am I the pet for you?
This breed has a sweet, docile temperament and loves nothing more than sitting on their owner's lap, being petted and groomed. They do not do well left unattended for long periods of time but can keep themselves entertained by your side. However, Himalayans are also playful and can be easily entertained for hours with kitty toys or scraps of crumpled paper.
Himalayans are not the best choice for households with young children or boisterous dogs as they require a gentler touch.

I am currently trying to bond my 5 month old maremma pup with my chickens. While the coop is a bit too small to put her in with them, she does sit outside the coop and I let them out to free range as often as possible and she is with them. She is very interested in them and will often just sit with them and watch, but I am concerned that sometimes I find her picking them up and even shaking them. She even drags them around with their head in her mouth. I have been concerned several times that the chickens may be killed by her. I have been stopping this behavior as I am concerned that she may kill them and even develop a taste for it. Should I let this over "enthusiastic" behavior continue? Is this bonding? The chickens submit every time and seem quite accepting although I am not sure just how much "enthusiasm" they can take. I only let them out when someone is supervising.
