The Siamese is an Oriental breed. Many of the breeds known today come from Siamese, the oldest of all Oriental breeds. Today I will present The Siamese cat- breed under the magnifying glass. The Oriental breeds today constitute a separate family. Consisting of Siamese, Oriental, Balinese, and Javanese.
The standard for these breeds is the same. The behavior is similar. Different colors and fur length. Siamese and Oriental have short fur. Balinese and Javanese have semi-long fur. Siamese and Balinese have blue eyes and pointed fur (colored peripheral areas darker than the rest of the body). Oriental and Javanese have uniformly colored fur. They have either the fur in one color or the tabby drawing. There is also a variety,
White Siamese (with blue eyes and short fur). In some organizations, this called Foreign White and considered a separate breed. So let’s see The Siamese cat- breed under the magnifying glass.
It assumed that the first Siamese cats raised by Buddhist monks. They meant to guard the riches of the temples. Later they came to the court of the kings of Siam (Thailand formerly called Siam).
Thus, they became the “members” of the royal aristocratic royal-cat families. The oldest written sources date from the 13th century. Popular faith believes that the soul of the deceased king passes into his Siamese. This fact can see very often in the works of art of those times.
The cat represented occupying the privileged place near the throne or even in the king’s lap.In Thailand, it valued and respected. Receiving the gift of a Siamese means having honor. The theft of a Siamese was always punished with death.
The Siamese brought to Europe at the end of the 19th century. In America, it reached the beginning of the 20th century.
Currently, the true lovers of this breed have started to grow Siamese in a planned. Responsible and much more careful way. The problems resulting from the chaotic growth eliminated by selection. Modern Siamese is a devoted breed, with stable qualities and a wonderful temperament.
Unfortunately, some still consider these cats to be aggressive and attack people.

The eccentric form of the modern Siamese may seem exaggerated. Some people think that this negatively affects the health of the animal. It must said, that the breed has undergone a long evolutionary process. The selection made from all points of view, not only about the physical aspect.
In many other breeds, standardization has achieved faster. Many believe that the old Siamese were healthier and living longer. Yet, they had defects such as a broken tail or eyes crossed. This is extremely rare Siamese today.
When we talk about Siamese, the thought leads us to elegant, pointy cats. Siamese nicknamed the Cat Princess, for very clear and justified reasons. There is something special about this cat. The expressive and mysterious blue of the eyes and the delicacy of the fur on the slender. Muscular body contribute to the aristocratic expression.
The tail is thin and long, like a whip. The legs are long, tall and thin, with small, oval legs. The head is long, triangular, with a straight profile and a well-aligned beard. The ears are large and accentuated. The eyes of a deep blue, almond, are another wonderful feature, out of the ordinary, of the head. The eyes will conquer you if you resist the other qualities. Looking expresses intelligence and a strong emotional charge. Once found only in rich houses, today you can find it everywhere in the world. Siamese will always show a proud and noble attitude, characteristic of a princess.
We have all heard different stories about “Bad, jealous, possessive Siamese…”.Any cat behaves this way if it was not born into a loving family if it treated badly. Or if she removed from her brother and her mother at an early age (less than four to five months). These things must avoided!
