Siamese Cats

Siamese cats are a very intelligent, lively, entertaining cat. They can be very demanding and become totally involved in their owner's life. Siamese do not like to be ignored and always have to be the centre of attention. They usually regard themselves as people rather than cats. You will never be bored if you own a siamese cat. Siamese cats have a strong personality and are usually very talkative, often with a loud voice. The siamese voice is quite legendry and they use it well to communicate with humans.

Often they bond strongly to a single person.
Siamese cats are somewhat rare, though they seemto be making a comeback, as the breed is popular with pet buyers. It should be pointed out that traditional siamese. Purebred cats,descended from the original cats imported from siam. A pointed catthat you find in the shelter, though it may look siamese, is probablynot a traditional siamese cat. Enough purebred siamese cats haveinterbred with domestic cats over the years that the gene which createsthe pointing pattern is found in a large number of cats, and some maylook siamese when in fact they have very little siamese blood in them. The "pointing" gene creates the distinct color pattern thatdistinguishes the siamese breed. This gene is recessive: two pointedparents will always produce pointed kittens. The siamese kitten is pure white at birth - the gene that produces the"points" on the face, paws, and tail is heat sensitive, and the pointcolor gradually develops on the cooler parts of the body. In somebreeding lines, and in warmer climates, the point color may not fullydevelop until the cat is over a year old.
They're inquisitive, intelligent, loyal (almost like a dog) but most of all, they show affection and they're vocal. They talk to you, and you can't help talking back.

The siamese cats are highly intelligent and need to be kept amused. Toys and scratching posts should be provided for their amusement and they can be easily trained to use a cat scratcher. The gene that is responsible for the pigmentation is heat-sensitive so all siamese kittens, although pure cream or white at birth, develop visible points in the first few months of life in colder parts of their body. By the time the kitten is four weeks old the points should be clearly distinguishable enough to recognise which colour they will be.
That's a stereotype that i think must come from the evil siamese duo in the old disney film lady and the tramp. They're very smart, and they're very.

The four major types of siamese are seal, blue, lilac, and chocolate points. Seal points have extremely dark brown points, while blue points have gray extremities. Lilacs have pale gray points and chocolate points are a light brown. The siamese body is generally very long and lean, with a fine thin hair coat. Typically the very long and slim looking siamese has been used for show cats, and the more common siamese with rounder face and body is what we know today.
