Breed Spotlight

SIAMESE

cat
This breed is also known as the Royal Cat of Siam, which we now call Thailand. It has been loved ever since by people who appreciate its good looks and vocal talents.
The Siamese is a clever, active cat and is known for its willingness to play fetch and walk on a leash.
It is one of the oldest and best known cat breeds. The Siamese has a distinctive “pointed” coat: a light–coloured background with darker points on the ears, mask (face), legs and tail in seal, lilac, chocolate and blue. Other point colours include tabby, red, cream, silver, smoke and colours with white. (Bi–Coloured). Siamese have beautiful clear blue eyes.
Siamese are endlessly curious, but inclined to be smart and demanding. If you want a Siamese just for good looks, think again! This is a cat who has a passion for people and will involve itself in everything you are doing. When you are not around, they will entertain themselves by turning on taps, opening cabinets, seeking out new hideaways to frustrate anyone who might be searching for them, and watching television with clear intelligent interest.
They will “talk” to you all day long and well into the night, expressing their opinion on what you're feeding them, what you're doing, how much (or how little) attention you're giving them, and what the dog next door is doing. Siamese can learn tricks and train you to do what they want.
Siamese can live to be 15 years or older.
