Some 50 years ago, cat fanciers decided to try to
create a cat of Persian coat and type but with the colour pattern of the
Siamese. In North America the resulting cats were called Himalayans,
while in Europe they were classified as Colourpoint Long-hairs. The
Himalayan is one of the most popular of all Persians. The Himalayan is
shown in the following point colors: chocolate, seal, lilac, blue, red,
cream tortie, blue-cream, chocolate-tortie, lilac-cream, seal lynx, blue
lynx, red lynx, cream lynx, tortie lynx, blue-cream lynx, chocolate
lynx, lilac lynx, chocolate-tortie lynx and lilac-cream lynx. Color is
restricted to the facial mask and extremities with the body of various
shades of white to fawn. Himalayans were developed by breeding Persians
to Siamese to combine the Siamese point coloring with Persian type.
After many years of cross breeding they were approved as accepted color
variations of Persians. All must have deep vivid blue eyes as eyes other
than blue are a disqualification.

Some tips on cat care
- Cats need love and affection, just as dogs do.
But, you need to let the cat come to you.
- Cats need their space. Let certain areas be
off-limits to you except for cleaning and maintenance. An space that
provides privacy and some darkness will do.
- Cats like it when you talk to directly to
them--use animated tones but keep your volume fairly low.
- Do not "crank it up." A loud stereo causes
incredible stress in cats.
- If your cat has a behavior problem, work with your
veterinarian to overcome it. Using the wrong methods will only make the
cat resent you and behave even worse.
- If you pick your cat up (such as when going for a
walk and encountering a dog), support the cat's weight under the butt.
Never pick a cat up by the arm pits or the belly--think of how you would
want your weight supported if lifted up. Then make a little more
allowance for the cat. Don't ever pick a cat up by front or rear limbs.
- If the cat "chirps" at you and walks away, that is
a sign that you are to follow. Act inquisitive, and mimic the cat's
sounds. This lets the cat know you are interested in what s/he has to
- Cats love to "help" make the bed. However, rather
than get cat dander over freshly-laundered sheets, let the cat "help"
you make the bed the morning before you wash the sheets. At other times,
shut the door and let the cat in when you are done.
- Learn how best to stroke your particular cat by
practicing various light strokes around the ears, chin, sides, back, and
other places while gauging the cat's reaction.
- Don't feed your cat table scraps. To give your cat
variety, you can use "people food." But, use small amounts of
such food as an occasional treat. Tuna mixed with yogurt and chopped
vegetables (broccoli works well) will give your cat a nutritious,
Follow these tips, and you'll have your cat purring
all the time. Be considerate and thoughtful, respecting your cat's need
for privacy and sense of control. The end result is your cat will follow
you everywhere, even the shower, just to be with you.
