Blue Point types of Siamese cats. The points are perhaps better described as mid to dark gray and the body almost pure white, with just a hint of 'blue' i.e. gray.
Siamese kittens are known for their affectionate, outgoing personalities. They are often vocal, letting you know when they want something. They are sweet, bold and brassy. They gently rule their domains. They love attention but, do not need to bother you for it. They will call when they want you! They tend to get darker as they get older but, they will always have those vivid intense blue eyes that the breed is famous for! Siamese kittens come in several colors. All kittens are placed with restricted registration papers meaning they are placed strictly as pets not for breeding.
Kittens are released somewhere between ten and twelve weeks of age. The reasoning behind keeping a kitten until then is so that kittens have had their basic inoculations started. This gives them time to develop the physical and social stability needed to make a smooth transition into their new surroundings. Our pedigreed cats and kittens must be kept indoors and be spayed or neutered when old enough. Declawing a cat is not recommended.
The Siamese is one of the first distinctly recognized breeds of Oriental cat. The origins of the breed are unknown, but it is believed to be from Southeast Asia.. In the 20th century the Siamese cat became one of the most popular breeds in Europe and North America.
The pointed cat known in the West as "Siamese", recognized for its distinctive markings, is one of several breeds of cats from Siam described and illustrated in manuscripts called "Tamra Maew" (Cat Poems), estimated to have been written from the 14th to 18th century.
It is often said that the breed was first seen outside their Asian home in 1884, when the British Consul-General in Bangkok, Edward Blencowe Gould (1847–1916), brought a breeding pair of the cats, Pho and Mia, back to Britain as a gift for his sister, Lilian Jane Veley (Veley went on to co-found the Siamese Cat Club in 1901). However, in 1878, U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes received "Siam", a gift from the American Consul in Bangkok; this cat was also the first documented Siamese to reach the United States, and predates the Siamese's arrival to the UK by 6 years.
In 1885, Veley's UK cats Pho and Mia produced three Siamese kittens. These kittens – Duen Ngai, Kalohom, and Khromata – and their parents were shown that same year at London's Crystal Palace Show, where their unique appearance and distinct behavior made a huge impression. Wankee, born 1895 in Hong Kong, became the first U.K. Siamese champion in 1898.
In their early days in Britain, they were called the "Royal Cat of Siam," reflecting reports that they had previously been kept only by Siamese royalty. Later research has not shown evidence of any organized royal breeding program in Siam.
The original Siamese imports were, like their descendants in Thailand today, medium-sized, rather long-bodied, muscular, graceful cats with moderately wedge-shaped heads and ears that were comparatively large but in proportion to the size of the head. The cats ranged from rather substantial to rather slender but were not extreme in either way.
While this show quality specimen from 1960 still exhibits relatively moderate characteristics, the breed standard was setting the stage for the modern Siamese, with its call for a "dainty, long and svelte" body, a long head that "taper[s] in straight lines from the ears to a narrow muzzle", "ears large and pricked, wide at the base" and tail "long and tapering". You’ll either love or hate the moderate characteristics of todays show Siamese. Our kittens are of the "Traditional Siamese", "Old Style Siamese", "Classic Siamese", and "Appleheads".
