Overview of Siamese

Once coveted companions of Buddhist monks and royalty in Ancient Siam, Siamese cats are one of the oldest kitties around, possibly even dating back to the 14th century. Siamese cats are considered to be so beautiful that their good looks have become the foundation stock for many other breeds, including the Himalayan, the Burmese, and the Tonkinese. And we can see why, just look at their otherworldly blue eyes and their stunning color points! Two different lines of Siamese cats have been developed over the years: the traditional and the modern. The modern is longer and sleeker, while the traditional has a rounder body and a more apple-shaped head. Their short silky coats only need a weekly brushing with a rubber brush to remove loose hairs and polish their fur to a high gloss.
