In 1884 several Siamese cats were given to a British general. It was the first time this breed of cat was seen in England. Soon afterwards immigrants brought the Siamese cat to America. Today the Siamese cat is one of the most popular breeds of cats in the world and certainly one of the most recognized.
Not all Siamese cats are the same color though most of them have light colored bodies with darker colors around their legs, paws, tail and face. Their eyes are usually slanted.
Siamese cats are especially known for their communications with their owners. They truly enjoy interacting with humans and are very vocal. In fact, the Siamese cat is known as the most social of all breeds of cats. If you want a cat that is quiet you don’t want a Siamese. If you want a cat that will bond with you and return your love the Siamese is a great choice.
Siamese cats, more so than other breeds, love to get lots of attention as they feel like they are the center of the world. This fact means that they can become very dependent upon their “family” and they do not like to be left alone for very long.
The Siamese cat makes a wonderful pet for children because they will give the cat plenty of love and attention. As long as you and your family gives the Siamese cat the love and attention it needs it will be a faithful pet for years to come.
