Siamese cats are a beautiful and elegant breed that's been around for centuries. It's believed the breed originated in Siam (now Thailand), but it didn't make its way to the United States until the late nineteenth century.
Initially, only seal-point Siamese were accepted in the show ring. Today, the cat comes in a variety of pointed colors and patterns, including seal, blue, chocolate, lilac, red (flame), smoke, tabby (lynx), and tortoiseshell. The Siamese's pointed pattern occurred as a result of a natural genetic mutation.
These cats are unique with many characteristics that make it stand apart from other breeds.
Siamese are known to be among the most vocal cats. Someone should not get a Siamese if she doesn't enjoy a chatty cat. A Siamese will tell her owners all about her day the minute her owner steps in the door. Siamese are very opinionated and will express their thoughts and feelings in a loud, raspy voice. Some people compare the sound of a Siamese's meow with that of a human baby's cry.
