This long-haired breed is almost identical to a Persian, although Himalayans have blue eyes and different coloring on their points. Their temperament is generally sweet and even-tempered and they are very social. They are decently active and make great indoor companions because they are known for being calm and gentle. Although, they do have a playful side much like that of a Siamese and they enjoy playing games such as fetch. They are very devoted pets and they are easily entertained. Bear in mind that this breed craves and feeds on attention so be prepared to give them affection in return. A Himalayan can cost anywhere between $300-450.
