The Siamese Cat

Siamese cats are a medium-sized breed with a long, sinuous physique that is graceful and elegant yet retains a muscular appearance. The body is athletic and well-balanced, the legs are thin, and the paws are tiny and oval. When seen from the front, the head resembles a triangle with straight lines leading to a beautiful snout. The ears are huge and pointed, and are placed to follow the triangle's lines. The eyes are shaped orientally and dip downward toward the nose. The tail is long, tapered, and kink-free. The short, delicate, close-lying coat is pale with deeper, vividly coloured tips. The colourful points are restricted to the mask area of the face, the ears, the legs, and the tail, which are the body's colder regions. It is available in a variety of colours. All coat colours and patterns will have a vibrant strong blue eye colour.


Siamese cats are one of the most popular purebred cat breeds in the United Kingdom, second only to British Shorthairs. It is probably the most instantly recognisable. The Siamese cat originated in what is now Thailand hundreds of years ago. According to legend, Siamese cats were considered sacred and guarded Buddhist temples. Siamese cats were introduced to the United Kingdom in the 1880s. The original Siamese cat breed colour was the typical seal brown points with a warm cream body, but breeders in the west created additional colours with the introduction of other cat breeds into the breeding calendar. The original Siamese cat has major flaws such as eye squints and tail kinks.


Siamese cats are arguably as well-known for their boisterous talkative personalities as they are for their classic appearance. Generally, the breed is extroverted, boisterous, and may be somewhat noisy. Siamese cats are demanding of attention and a place in the family. This is not the best cat for someone who is away all day at work because they do not like to be left alone - a two litter mate Siamese may be the solution! Siamese cats are very clever and require constant entertainment. For their entertainment, toys and scratching posts should be supplied, and they can be trained to retrieve toys.
