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.

  • Just like the Persians, Himalayans have a stocky body. However, they are not fat.

  • They have big heads, short necks, broad faces and large eyes.
