Description: If you are looking for a stunning kitten then consider a Siamese kitten for sale. The Siamese cat breed is known for their beautiful almond shaped blue eyes, triangular shaped faces, and sleek double colored coats. This cat breed has a long sleek body and were first associated with native Siam, now Thailand, in the late 19th century.
The Siamese coat consists of a lighter color on the body with darker points on the head, ears, legs and tail. While the seal-point Siamese has the classic coloring of a cream or fawn base color with dark brown points, other colors include chocolate with lighter brown points, bluepoint with a light gray body and dark gray points, a lilac point with a light gray point on a white body. The Siamese is a short-haired breed and considered a low shedding breed, so minimal grooming is required unless it competes in cat shows.
Temperament: Siamese are usually very affectionate and highly intelligent cats, renowned for their social nature. Many enjoy being with people and are sometimes described as "extroverts". They are active and athletic but not well suited as a 'lap' cat. Siamese often bond strongly to a single person. Some Siamese are extremely vocal, with a loud, low-pitched voice—known as "Meezer", from which they get one of their nicknames. Siamese kittens do enjoy attention. These cats are typically active and playful, even as adults, and are often described as more dog like in behavior than other cats.

The beautiful Siamese is the legendary temple cat of the King of Siam. They were valued by the king for their exquisite beauty, but also they were used as guard cats.
The first Siamese cats in Europe were a gift from the King of Siam to the English consulate general in Bangkok in the late 1800s. A breeding pair were brought into England in 1884 by Owen Gould. The first Siamese cat in the United States was also a gift from the King of Siam to a friend. In the late 1890s and early 1900s, Siamese cats were imported into North America from Britain, France, Japan, and Siam. The Siamese remained somewhat rare until after World War II, when they quickly became number one in terms of registrations.
