body build of Himalayan cats is referred
to as "cobby." This is a term
used for animals that have a stocky or
stout body. Their broad chest, well toned
muscles, and their rounded appearances
are further enhanced by their long fur.
They have a full, round face with wide
and round blue eyes. Their ears are small
and rounded and they have a well-developed
chin. The coats of Himalayan cats have
a main color of either beige or white.
The point color-s appear on their tails,
legs, feet, face mask and ears. They are
recognized by their distinct point colors
such as blue, chocolate, cream, lilac,
red, seal, mixes with tortie ( example
are lilac-cream, chocolate tortie and
blue-cream), and tabby marked points or
lynx (such as blue lynx, cream lynx, lilac
lynx, tortie lynx and more).
Himalayan kittens require high maintenance
or special care. They need to have regular
baths. Their fur or long hair needs daily
grooming to prevent matting and tangling.
Himalayan kittens might get ill due to
exposure to chemical products applied
to them during bathing. Upon bathing,
use diluted soap or shampoo, and make
sure to keep it out of the cat's nose,
mouth, and eyes.
Himalayan kittens are a beautiful breed
of cats and truly fascinating. Since 1981,
they have won over 41 national awards.
They also have won over 175 awards in
the regional level. Since 1993, Himalayan
cats have made several appearances in
movies and television programs and in
1998 they were allowed to enter cat shows.
