glamor cats, the himalayans combine the luxurious sophistication
of the Persian family with the poise, good looks and markings
of the Siamese. Like the Siamese the himalayan invariably
has bright, sapphire-blue eyes and a face mask, ears,
legs, feet and tail (the 'points') that are a different
color than the rest of the body.
breeding programs in Sweden and the US during the 1920's
produced the first Himalayans, but it was not until the
late 1940's after a succession of carefully planned crossbreedings
bewtween Persians and Siamese, that the modern cat finally

they have the gentle nature of the Persian, and the spirited,
conversational nature of the Siamese. They are wonderful

chocolate point, creampoint, flamepoint to name a few.

HIMALAYAN (POINT) PATTERN:
Body: clear color is
preferred with subtle shading allowed. Allowance should
be made for darker color in older cats but there must
be a definite contrast between body color and point color.
The points, consisting of ears, legs, feet, tail, and
mask show the basic color of the cat. The ideal mask extends
from above the eyes down through the chin and stretches
beyond the eyes from side to side.
POINT: body even pale fawn to cream, warm in tone, shading
gradually into lighter color on the stomach and chest.
Points deep seal brown. Nose leather and paw pads: seal
brown. Eye color: deep vivid blue.
