Siamese

Feature image

Lively, smart and vocal.

Where I'm From

This ancient breed originated in Siam, which is now Thailand.

In the early days this graceful breed was often referred to as the 'royal cat of Siam', suggesting it may have originally been kept only by Siamese royalty.

What I Look Like

The Siamese is one of the world's most instantly reconisable cats. They are a striking pedigree breed with long ears and light blue, almond-shaped eyes that slant towards their fine muzzle.

Their medium sized bodies are long and elegant and covered in a short silky coat.

They have a very long, thin tail, and large wide set ears.

Siamese come in dozens of different colours, ranging from browns and blues through to creams. All have distinctive darker markings, known as points on their ears, nose and tail.

The eyes of a Siamese, regardless of coat colour are always an intense blue.

How I Act

Siamese cats are one of the most highly intelligent breeds of cat. Keeping their brains active with puzzle toys and scratching posts is a good idea.

They are a demanding breed and always needs to be the centre of attention.

A Siamese will pine if they are left alone for long periods of time.

They are a particularly vocal breed and will make their feelings known to their owners with loud, persistent meows and body language.
