Himalayan Cat Behavior,Personality,feeding.

History
The longhaired Himalayan is very similar to the Persian, with a large, short and heavy body. They developed as a result of cross between Persians and Siamese to combine the Siamese point coloring with Persian type. The CFA and the ACFA recognized the breed in 1957 under the name Himalayan, named for the color pattern found in other animals, such as the Himalayan rabbit. By 1961 all major U.S. cat associations recognized the Himalayan. In 1984 the CFA united the Himalayan and the Persian breeds, arguing that the body type was the same for both breeds.

Appearance
Himalayan Cat is large to medium sized and is heavily boned. Himalayans have well-rounded cobby bodies and short, thick legs with a short, bushy tail. They also have a short, strong neck supporting a very large and round head. They have deep vivid blue eyes.

Personality
They are gentle, calm, and sweet-tempered. They are extremely playful and express themselves with a melodius voice. Himalayans are devoted and dependent upon their owners for companionship and protection.
