The popular Himalayan was created by crossing the Siamese and the Persian and then breeding the offspring. Like the Persian, he has small ears, large round eyes, a snub nose and a sweet expression. His long, beautiful coat brings Siamese style to a short, heavy-boned Persian-style body.
Himalayans are adaptable and will make themselves just as at home with a loud, boisterous family as with a pair of empty-nesters, as long as they have everyone’s complete devotion. Learn more at http://www.vetstreet.com/cats/himalayan.
