The Siamese cats are a beautiful, distinctive looking and an incredibly intelligent breed. They can be trained to perform commands and tricks and have proven to be extremely agile. They can leap across your living room and into your lap and hearts.
Siamese cats are vocal and demanding. They ‘talk’ more than other cats and are capable of conveying their needs from a single meow to a large yelp; their meows almost sound like a baby crying. Siamese cats tend to be curious, affectionate and athletic. They love to be around their favorite people and tend to share your pillow at bedtime.
They are know to be ‘tricksters’ and playful – batting water bottle caps around the house, amusing themselves at all times. They tend to follow their owners around and are very sociable. Pet owners with Siamese cats tell stories of how loveable these cats are and even win the hearts of non-cat lovers (as do most cool cats)!
The Siamese cat can be very demanding as they become totally involved in their owner’s life. The Siamese are typically active and playful, even as adults. Siamese do not like to be ignored and always want to be the center of attention. They regard themselves as people instead of cats. In fact, due to their intelligence and curiosity, it might be important to cat proof your home. They are known to open up cabinets and doors! (But, my Sammy, the tabby, does too!)
A little Siamese history
This breed began showing up in Europe and the
Highly recognizable, the Siamese have deep blue, almond-shaped eyes, a chiseled, wedge-shaped head, sleek, tubular body and large pointed ears. The body is muscular but delicate.
Its short hair coat contains a mutated enzyme in its pigment that produces its cream colored torso offset by darker points at the ears, face, and toes.
Most female Siamese cats weight between five and six pounds and males average between six and seven pounds. As they are slighter cats, they don’t need as much food and tend to eat less. However, the Siamese can be genetically predisposed to problems with gingivitis and a liver-destroying disease called amyloidosis. But, not to worry, just make sure you take your Siamese to the Vet for his regular visits.
We love all cats and the Siamese are a special breed of their own.
