A Hybrid Cross Between the Persian and the Siamese,
This Highly Popular Cat is a Colorpoint Longhair

Himalayan Kittens For Sale

The Himalayan is a long-haired cat identical to the Persian, with the exception of its blue eyes and its point coloration, which was derived from crossing the Persian with the Siamese. Although similar breeds have existed for hundreds of years, the Colourpoint Persian, as they are commonly referred to in Europe, was only first introduced in the 1950s.

History
The Himalayan gets its name based on other colorpoint animals such as the Himalayan rabbit. In the UK the breed was recognized as the Colorpoint Longhair. The Himalayan stood as a separate breed in the US until 1984, when the CFA merged it with the Persian, to the objection of the breed councils of both breeds. Some Persian breeders were unhappy with the introduction of this "hybrid" into their "pure" Persian lines, but the Himalayan has evolved to become the most popular cat in the Persian family.

CFA considers the Himalayan as just another color of the Persian breed. In TICA, the Himalayan is considered a separate breed, but is included in the Persian Breed Group, which also includes Exotic Shorthair cats. The AACE judges the Himalayan under its own separate breed standard.

According to the Cat Fanciers' Association, there have been over 343,000 Himalayans registered since 1957. To show how much this cat's popularity has skyrocketed, by 1998 some 2,428 Himalayans were shown. Having earned a prestigious place in feline history, this cat has won over 41 national awards since 1981 and over 175 regional awards since 1992.

Appearance
Like Persian cats, the Himalayan is a medium-sized cat weighing between 7 and 12 pounds, characterized by a round body with short legs. This inhibits its ability to jump as high as many other cats. For those with a body more reminiscent of the Siamese, physical activity is heightened and jumping as high as seven feet is done effortlessly. Like the Persian, there are two types of Himalayan Cats: the Traditional or Doll Face; and the Peke or Ultra-type which features the more extremely "squashed" faces.

Temperament
For cat lovers who prefer indoor companions, the Himmie (to which they are fondly referred) is ideal. Extroverted and affectionate, these intelligent felines are calm with a very sweet disposition. Easy to please, they can spend hours entertained by a crumpled piece of paper rolled into a ball and appreciate a good game of fetch. The Himalayan cat relies on human companionship and relishes the attention of its proud owners. Particularly fond of grooming and petting, these cats will vocalize their approval more emphatically than Persians, striking up a discourse with anyone who will participate. While a household of rough children or other pets will not be the best environment for the sophisticated Himalayan, well-behaved, gentle housemates can win its perceptive and discerning approval.

Health and Grooming
The Himalayan’s beautiful coat requires regular attention, including combing out its tangles on a daily basis and bathing every four weeks or so. As with all pets in today’s world, it is important to maintain proper oral hygiene, brushing the teeth as often as you can. Rather fussy about its comfort, the Himmie will avoid the litter box if you fail to adequately monitor its cleanliness and that of the cat’s feet and fur after use. To protect the safety of your exquisite cat, keep it securely indoors away from other animal intimidation or human interception and abduction.

 

Are Himalayan cats good Pets?

YES! The Himalayan cat makes a very good pet! Be prepared for a cat that is big on affection, love and snuggles. They tend to love all members of their family, and are great with kids, as well as strangers. And they are generally okay with other animals too.

Can Himalayan cats be left alone?

Even though this is a people orientated breed, the Himalayan cat can manage a little time on their own. But ideally not all day, every day. They can get very lonely if they are left on their own a lot, this is especially true as they are generally an indoor breed.

Are Himalayan cats Hypoallergenic?

No cat breed is 100% hypoallergenic, but the Himalayan cat is especially far away from being so. If you suffer from sniffles thanks to a cat allergy, this is not the breed for you. They shed A LOT, and will require brushing every couple of days if you want to keep their coat perfect.
