siamese-catsSiamese cats have been ranked as the most popular cat breed in the United States as referenced by the Cat Fancier’s Association.  These breeds are very easy to recognize because of their striking blue eyes.  These cats used to be companions of the royals in Siam which is now Thailand. They were popular in Europe because of their beauty in the latter part of the 19th century and were introduced in the United States at the beginning of the 20th century.

Siamese cats have a pointed pattern. This is a result of a genetic condition unique only to this breed.  These cats are highly intelligent and very affectionate.  They love to play making them an excellent companion of families with children.  They are also known for the peculiar “meow” These are very vocal animals. If you don’t like cats that meow a lot, they don’t get a Siamese as they are very vocal.

They have short coats and are easy to groom. Make sure that you have lots of cat toys around. Siamese cats love to play and crave attention.
