Siamese Cats [Part 1]
Today, I plan to talk about Siamese cats. Because I’m Thai, and I think Siamese cats are charmer and very beautiful. Siamese cats have 5 breeds as follow:
1. Royal Siamese cat [Seal Point , Moon Diamond]
2. White Jewel cat [Odd Eyes]
3. Burmese cat [Copper]
4. Korat cat [Silver Blue cat]
5. Black Bombay
Talking about “Royal Siamese cat”, this breed is the most famous Thai cat, first time that Siamese cat was brought to another country was in 1884, Mr. Owen Gould brought one pair of Siamese cat back to England for his sister. After 1 year, Mr. Owen sent them to a London Cat’s contest, and they won the first prize. From that moment English people was excited about Siamese cat, and they had established “The Siamese Cat Club” in 1900. The cats that Mr. Owen had brought to England was "Royal Siamese cat" which the important symbol was: 9 seal point at their face and tail, both ears, four legs, and sexual organ. All their color point was place in the right position as mentioned above and no where else. The important characters of "Royal Siamese cat" are not only the 9 seal points but the graceful feature, obedience and very smart. If you bring Siamese cat to mix breed with another species of cat, it possible you could get a kitten with same 9 spots color, but it will not look graceful and beautiful like pure Siamese cat. But anyway along this hundred years there are some people still mixed breed them with other species and nowadays there are 8 types of hybrid Siamese cat.
Siamese cat's own lovely behaviors are very smart, love its home, its owner, sycophantic, and love its freedom more than anything. Its behaviors make Siamese cat been well-known in many countries.
Siamese cat has short white fur or light brown fur, the 9 seal point at its face and tail, both ears, four legs and sexual organ is unique. When it is a kitten, it fur’s color is light cream, and when it becomes older, the fur will change to be darker. Siamese cat has blue eyes, long straight tail, short nose, big ears and has a long legs which match with its body. Cat's head is also counted in pure breed. The pure breed will have wedge shape head or triangle shape head.
