Siamese

HISTORY:

The Siamese has an Asiatic origin, but the exact species it is descended from is unknown. The breed was first introduced to England in the early 1800′s when the King of Siam was supposed to have made a gift of two Siamese to Mr.Owen Gould, English Consul-General in Bangkok, which he took to London.

The breed reached America in 1890, probably as a gift from the King of Siam to an American friend. They became fashionable in the 1920′s, and the demand for kittens caused repeated inbreeding, making this breed weak and almost extinct. Better breeding habits were established, resulting in the proud and aristocratic breed we know today.

APPEARANCE:

Body Structure:The Siamese is lanky, of medium size with long, slim hind legs, slightly longer than the forelegs. They have small, oval feet and good muscle tone. They are very elegant with haughty movement.

Eyes:The eyes are oblique and almond-shaped, inclining toward the nose.Siamese eyes are always a deep, vivid blue and should never be crossed.

Coat: The Siamese has a close-fitting, short-haired coat with a fine texture,but thick and glossy.

Color:The outstanding feature of the Siamese is its contrasting color pattern known as colorpoint. The points are the mask, ears, legs, feet and tail, which are a richer color in contrast to the rest of the body, which is a shade of white.

The colors known in America are seal point, blue point,chocolate point and lilac point.

CHARACTER:

The Siamese is extremely sensitive and sometimes unpredictable.Its mannerism may change radically day to day. It may be lovable and playful one minute and fickle and temperamental the next. It is known for its meow, which resembles a newborn baby’s cry.
