Siamese cats belong to the Oriental Shorthair breeds of cats. The history of the origin of the rock is orientally shrouded in legends and is not known for certain. Only the information that in the second half of the nineteenth century to England from Siam (now Thailand) was brought several cats, which had an unusual body shape and amazing blue eyes, was credible, and dark muzzle, ears, paws and tail stood out on the light smooth hair.
For many years of breeding work, the Siamese cat breed has produced three separate branches: the Thai cat, or the traditional Siam; classic siam; modern siams. Thai cat is a strong cat with strong paws, a round head and slightly rounded sky-blue eyes.
The classic Siamese cats are more graceful, the head is wedge-shaped, the almond-shaped sapphire-colored eyes are planted slightly kosovato. Modern Siamese cats are even more graceful, a characteristic sign of the breed is a narrow wedge-shaped head and very large, wide at the base of the ears. Eye color can be light blue, bright blue or blue.
The color of Siamese cats of all varieties of the so-called “point”, that is, the main coat color and color of the face, ears, legs and tail are different. There are numerous varieties of wool color: creamy seal-point with black-brown markings, snow-white blue-point with blue markings, chocolate-point with coffee-milk shade markings, lilac-point with light gray pink cast marks, tabby point with striped markings, white red-edged with bright golden-red markings and a pink nose.
All Siamese kittens are born white, marks appear after about a month and a half, and the final color is formed by the age of one. Siamese kittens mature very early and have a strong temperament. Siamese cats are quite ready to become fathers before the year.
One of the most “talkative” breeds, of course, are Siamese cats. Their character is strong, and if the cat lacks attention, then it will definitely attract him. And the methods can be different – from loud cries to various, not always innocent pranks. Attention and love of the owners – this is what all Siamese cats demand. Care of them is not difficult. As a rule, they have a great appetite. It is enough to comb short hair once a week.
Siamese cat breed is deservedly popular, because for loving owners, this elegant cat with a memorable appearance will certainly become a true friend.
