The Siamese cat is considered the oldest breed of cat in the world, appearing in a Thai manuscript dating from the 14th century. It is said that Siamese cats guarded the kingdom of Siam (ancient Thailand) hence the name of this breed. Cats were considered sacred and protected by the king. Moreover, legend has it that after the Burmese-Siamese war, the king of Burma (Myanmar) read a poem to Siamese cats describing them as more precious than gold.
If you want to add a Siamese cat to your family, you must know that its needs are simple, but vital. This cat has a strong personality and wants to be always in the center of attention. When you are at home, the Siamese cat will stay alone for a very short time and will generally follow you everywhere and will make its presence felt by constant meowing.
This cat does not react positively if it is left too much alone, so if you will not be home most of the day you need to find a companion, either a cat or a dog. The Siamese cat quickly socializes with both other cats and dogs and if she does not have an occupation while left alone, she will venture and open all the closet doors and find the hidden objects around your house.
The Siamese has a very good and long-lasting memory, remembering events that happened a few weeks ago. Do not choose this cat if you know that you will not have time to take care of it and you do not have any other family member who spends more time at home during the day.
The Siamese cat does not need extraordinary physical activity. She loves to play and you can even teach her to bring you certain objects, toys. You can take the Siamese cat for a walk with a cat leash, but never let it venture on its own. Siamese do not like lonely walks and prefer to be accompanied on any adventure.
If your cat leaves the house alone, most of the time it easily remembers the way home. Many Siamese cats try to get out of the house to explore their surroundings as much as possible and to put their senses to the test, but try to be with them if they happen to venture outside the apartment or house.
In general, Siamese cats are born completely white, and along the way they acquire the specific shades of brown and black that help us recognize their breed from a post office. The coloring in shades of dark or light brown is easy to notice especially in the area of the nose, feet and tail because these are the coldest areas of the cat's body.
The albinism gene in the Siamese cat system is combated by other genes that act only at certain temperatures. The Siamese cat is born completely white, because the temperature in the mother's womb is very high and the color eyelashes are not activated until after the cat begins to grow. The color can also be influenced by the temperature of the area where the cats live, so in a cooler country the predominantly white Siamese cats can be more common. White Siamese cats usually have a few spots in very faint shades of brown in the area of the face or legs.
