I have had cats my entire life, but have never found a cat more wonderful than a Himalayan. Not only are they beautiful, but there personalities are quite unique. They are sweet and loving with a gentleness, but also love to play and "talk". I would recommend a himmie to anyone, as long as you are willing to spend some time grooming. Grooming daily is a must.
