Himalayan Cat Pictures
If you love fluffy cats, you will love these Himalayan cat pictures. In looks, the Himalayan cat is almost exactly the same as the Persian, the main difference being the colorpoint pattern of its coat and the deep blue eyes. In fact, the CFA, the world’s largest cat registry, recognizes the Himalayan as a sub-category of the Persian breed.
