Real 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.
Experimental 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 emerged.
Himalayans are a subdivision of
the Persian breed, whereas a few decades ago, in the CFA, they were
presented as a separate breed.

and the spirited, conversational nature of the Siamese. They are
Himalayans come in MANY color varieties,
such as sealpoint, bluepoint, chocolate point, creampoint, flamepoint
to name a few. Crossing in tabby has also produced lynx-points in
as many colors.
