Himalayan Cat

The Himalayan Cat is placid but exhibits bursts of activity. He will be quietly sleeping when he suddenly explodes, running around the room and rolling around.


Himalayan Cat

Like the Persian, the Himalayan Cat is docile, sweet and quiet. He reserves his attention for family members and those few guests whom he feels he can trust. Himalayan Cats crave affection and love to be petted and groomed, which is fortunate, since every Himalayan owner will spend part of each day doing just that.
