Coat 

The Himalayans are long haired and have two very soft coats. They have the colorpoints of the Siamese breed and can be: Blue, Chocolate, Cream, Flame, Lilac, Lynx, Seal and Tortie also in different combinations. Being long haired, they do require significant grooming.

Build 

These cats are small and fluffy.

Face 

Like the Persian, the Himalayans have a short, flat face with large eyes however they have colorpointing. Due to their flat face and long hair they can be prone to matting and need regular cleaning around their eyes. There is also another variety which doesn't have such a flat face.

Behavior 

The Himalayan cats are a calm breed that crave attention. They like to relax, be around people and are great with children.

Health 

Due to their long fur, Himalayan cats can suffer from fur balls more than other breeds. Flatter faced Himalayans may require more attention to keep their face clean. As always you should buy from a reputable breeder as they can carry the polycystic kidney disease gene.
