Siamese kittens are one of the rarest cat breeds in the world. They are named after the country of Siam, where the cats were originally bred. Siamese kittens are usually very active and playful, but can also be quite independent. They are usually very good at adapting to new environments and are very social cats.

Siamese cats are, perhaps, best known for their sleek, distinctive appearance. Although many Siamese cats are a silver-gray color with blue eyes, these pretty kitties’ coats can also be orange, brown, cream, and even blue or lilac-colored, among other coat variations.

Most Siamese cats are born completely white and develop their markings in the weeks following birth. Why? Because the womb is very warm and blocks the cat’s color gene from reaching her fur.

History

Anyone in the market for a Siamese kitten will often have a similar experience. You want a Siamese just like the lovely one you had as a child, or who just passed away at a ripe old age. You go to local breeders, you look in magazines, you attend cats shows, but what you most often find is a cat that looks quite different from the large robust cat you remember. By comparison to the cat you remember, the modern version of the Siamese is emaciated, with large bat-like ears, an elongated head and pencil thin legs. You might ask yourself, “Is this really a Siamese?”The short answer is ‘yes’, but this is certainly not the same type as you remember. Chances are what you recall is a large robust cat with a round head, normal looking ears, and lovely blue eyes. What you remember is now called a ‘Traditional Siamese, or ‘applehead’ Siamese, while the one that dominates the show ring now is known as the Modern Siamese. If you wonder out loud about what happened, different breeders may give you very different explanations, but the truth is clearly available in any history book.
