The Siamese is one of the oldest cat breeds. it’s believed that this feline originated from Thailand which was formally referred to as Siam.

The history of this breed can be traced to a collection of ancient manuscripts with the name “Tamra Maew” loosely translated to mean “The Cat-Book Poems”. These manuscripts were created by the Ayutthaya Kingdom which reigned from 1351 to 1767 AD.

The Siamese cats were described as favorites of the royal families in Siam. It’s also believed that the Siamese cats received the souls of the dead royal family members.

In the past, Siamese lived a luxurious life in royal temples having priests and monks as their servants. In the 18th century, Siamese cats were among the most popular cat breeds in North America and Europe after President Rutherford Hayes’s wife, first lady Lucy Hayes received one of these cats as a gift from an American diplomat working in Bangkok.

Siamese cats have slender muscular bodies, almond-shaped blue eyes, large ears, long slender legs, and oval paws.


These adorable furballs that often get strongly attached to one person are sweet, even-tempered, affectionate, and very intelligent. They are vocal cats with loud low pitched meows.

Siamese cats are also people-oriented felines that don’t enjoy being alone. If left for too long, most Siamese cats will suffer from separation anxiety.

Further, Siamese cats need lots of interaction and mental stimulation. These cats also love being in pairs.

Thus, it’s recommended that you get two of these cats, especially if you’re too busy to keep your cat entertained. Siamese cats get along well with children and other pets.

Coat Coloring

These royal mystic felines are recognized by their high contrast color point pattern. The coat of the Siamese cat is short and pale with dark points on the face, ears, tail, and legs.

The fur color pattern on the Siamese cat is caused by a mutation of the enzyme responsible for melamine production. These mutated enzymes are temperature sensitive and are seen on the cat’s body extremities where the temperatures are low.

Notably, Siamese kittens are born pure white and develop darker points on the cooler areas of their bodies such as the tail, face, and legs as they grow.

Siamese Cats Classification

Siamese cats are classified as either traditional or modern based on the size of their tail, head, and pointed patterns.

Traditional Siamese cats are further subdivided into classic, apple head, and old-style. Modern Siamese cats are classified into the wedge and light-colored variations.

While it’s rare to find a purebred Siamese, mixed Siamese felines are in plenty. The four standard colors acceptable for Siamese cats are seal, blue, chocolate and lilac.

Siamese Cats Mixed Breeds

For years, cats have been mix-bred to create new and unique breeds with distinct personalities and a variety of coat patterns. A perfect example of this is the Siamese mix breed which is a cross between a Siamese cat and another cat breed creating a mix that is a hybrid of the two.

Siamese mixed cats are also referred to as Siamese crossbred or hybrid cats.

For a cat to be a mixed Siamese, it must contain some Siamese heritage. The most accurate way to tell that a cat has Siamese heritage is to conduct DNA analysis. In the absence of a DNA test, you can compare your cat’s traits with that of a Siamese. The more Siamese matching traits your cat has, the greater the chance she’s related to a Siamese parent.

Although each hybrid Siamese cat is different, most crossbreed Siamese cats inherit most traits from their Siamese parent than the other cat breed. These traits range from coat color, body shape, to personality.

For instance, your hybrid Siamese cat may look like a pure breed Siamese but with a laidback personality or you may end up with a Siamese mix that looks nothing like a Siamese cat in appearance but has all the personality traits of the Siamese.
