This is a picture of me three years ago. I have changed a lot with a more rounded body (as Himalayans usually have) and a much thicker coat. It takes two years for a Himalayan to reach his full colors and sometimes even a little longer.
Here's a picture of me today. I love my soft coat and long fur. I am very comfortable in warm or cold weather (well I am in the house all the time, but I do not always seek the very warmest spots to sleep these days -- because I am wearing a good warm fur coat).
