… More Pictures and Information, but meanwhile this is what we’ve discovered for you about this breed:

Origin

Thialand

Though there are many different breeds of cats, they are really unimportant to a great number of cat owners. Most of the time, owners look for personality and appearance over a specific breed. However, one breed of cat, the Siamese, has remained a very popular and much sought after breed of cat for many feline lovers.

The Siamese Cat is known as being a very regal cat throughout history. Even today, it maintains an elegant and sleek form, and remains the most popular of all pedigreed cats. The Siamese Cat comes in a variety of different colors. Most of the time, the body is one color while the outer “points” are another color. Because of this variation, the colors of a Siamese Cat are commonly referred to as Red Point, Blue Point, and so on. The Siamese Cat is most commonly a light color, often just a few shades darker than white, with darker points.

Siamese Cats have a very distinct head, with unique features. Traditionally, the head was very angular, and triangle in shape. The breed maintains that head shape even today. Additionally, the ears are very large, and also pointed like a triangle. In the past, Siamese Cats were known for their crossed eyes. Luckily, selective breeding has essentially prevented that trait from affecting today’s Siamese Cats. Nevertheless, the Siamese Cat still has very distinct eyes, always in a bright shade of blue.

Personality

Today, the Siamese Cat is loved as being one of the more social breeds of cats. While many cats are quite content to spend a great deal of their time in solitude, the Siamese Cat typically appreciates spending time with its family, as well as other people. The Siamese Cat also has a very distinct meow, and they are more vocal than many cats. The meow of a Siamese Cat becomes very intense if it is distressed, or desires attention. Additionally, the Siamese Cat often lives for over twenty years, truly becoming a valued member of any family.

Did You Know?

Did you know cat hair isn’t the cause of reactions by people sensitized to cat allergens? The primary cause is an allergen produced in cats’ saliva.   These allergens are spread to cats’ hair through grooming, which are then shed into the environment.
