Himalayan

Himalayan

Himalayans are almost identical in appearance to Persians. They have brilliant blue eyes and similar markings to a Siamese. Himalayans are are sweet, docile, quiet cats that tend to reserve their attention for family members and those few guests whom they feel they can trust. They appreciate a calm home environment, cuddled up in the lap of their favourite family member.

 

Common Health Conditions

  • Breathing difficulty or noisy breathing may be caused by the Himalayan’s short noses and narrow nostrils.
  • Himalayans are prone to polycystic kidney disease, a disease where cysts form on the cats kidneys and can often cause kidney failure.
  • Himalayans have an increased chance of contracting ringworm from environments that are densely populated with animals, like an animal shelter or kennel. Pets with illness or a weak immune system are also at risk for ringworm.
