The Himalayan cat, or Himmie as they are affectionately called, is the amazing hybrid of the Persian cat and the Siamese cat. Himmie owners often joke that their cats are “Persian dressed up like Siamese.” The Himalayan cat has the long hair of the Persian with unique color points in their faces, ears, paws and tails like the Siamese.

With piercing blue eyes, cute pushed in pug-like faces and a flowing, silky coat, the Himalayan cat has become popular with cat enthusiasts, cat owners and popular culture. Here are 20 things you didn’t know about Himalayan cats.
