CFA's Grand Champions

The Himalayan was accepted as a new breed in CFA in 1957. 9 years later, the breed had its first Grand Champion - a blue point male named GC, BW Chestermere Kinuba of Nevah-Tep.

In 1981, CFA added a class for solid chocolate and lilac CPCs as a "solid division" of the Himalayan class - which was retracted just a year later. However, that short window saw the first CPC Grand Champion - a lilac female named GC Lyka's Shadowbox.

In 1984, the Himalayans were combined with the Persian breed, which also had the effect of making the CPCs eligible for competition right beside their Persian counterparts.
