The Siamese is, like her close relatives the Balinese, Oriental Shorthair and Oriental Longhair (also called Javanese), a cat with oriental type:
a very elegant, graceful and slender cat. Siamese cats are the ballet dancers in the cat world.

The Siamese is of medium size, her body is slender and long, yet with a very well developed muscle strength, which is quite hard and firm. The legs are high (long) and slender with fine oval paws. The boning is fine and delicate.
The head builds a long wedge which tapers to a fine muzzle. The nose is absolutely straight and long. The jaws are fine built. When viewing the head in profile a long straight line can be seen, which starts at the top of the head and continues straight to the tip of the nose. When viewing the head from the front side the outer edges of the head build a long triangle.
The skull is not supposed to be flat, it is rounded, as if the cat would wear a round helmet.
The neck is long, slender and graceful, thus emphasizing the elegant lines of the Siamese.
The eyes are almond in shape and slanted to the base of the ears. Their colour is of a striking deep blue. This combination between the almond shape and the oblique placement of the eyes emphasizes the oriental appearance of the Siamese.
The ears are very large, very wide at their base, thus completing the triangular shape of the head and continuing the outer lines of the head.
The coat is extremely short, very fine and lies sleek to the body. When you stroke the coat you get the feeling of pure silk. The main characteristique of the Siamese is her coat colour, the Siamese is a pointed cat, i.e. the colour is restricted to very few parts of the body. In the face there is a mask, ears, legs and tail are coloured, the rest of the body is almost white. This contrast between the coloured points, the white body and the deep blue eyes makes this breed very attractive.
The tail is very long, rather thin and tapers to its tip.

It is supposed that the Siamese is originated in Siam (Thailand). On ancient paintings one can see an elegant cat, whose ears, paws and tail are dark coloured, with a mask on its face.
The early Siamese of England and America resemble very little the modern type of today's Siamese. Those Siamese had a shorter body, round eyes and a round head, and were called 'apple head'. In the 1960s a large amount of Siamese could be admired on American exhibitions, 50 up to 60 cats were quite usual. This started to change in the 1980s, and today already a class of 10 Siamese is considered as a large class.

Siamese cats are talkative cats, they can get quite loud sometimes. Females, which are in heat, and lonely studs can cry with an ear splitting voice. The Siamese loves to communicate with her owner. They are active cats, who like to play. If they feel lonely without any playmate, they create one, and anything will be dedicated to become their playmate. Siamese like to jump quite high, but they keep their balance between the narrowest things with great elegance, thus disrupting or disturbing very seldom something.
Siamese are no outdoor cats, they like a cosy warm place - their normal body temperature is 1°C higher than in other cats. They like to sleep on top of radiators, the television or the computer, or anything which creates heat.
Siamese love their owners and demand attention and affection, they enjoy riding on their shoulders or cuddling on their knees, or to cuddle in bed under a warm blanket.
These extremely intelligent cats make very good companions for people, who like to have constant companionship. Siamese will follow you, wherever you go, if you sit down, they will sit on your lap, if you eat, they will sit besides you on the chair, without being demanding or begging for food, if go to bed, they will enjoy to sleep in your bed with you. Siamese will be your friends for a life time.



Siamese require little grooming. Rubbing their coat with chamois skins will remove dead hears and will produce a silk-like glistening coat.
