Siamese Cat Breeders in Arkansas With Kittens and Cats for Sale
Unfortunately, at this time I’m not able to find any Siamese Cat Breeders located in Arkansas.
The best thing I can suggest is that you check out what cats are in need of homes on the Adoptapet site.
You’re not going to find the kitten of your choice, but there are some really rewarding opportunities when adopting that you may not have otherwise considered.
At the time of writing this, I could see Siamese cats in need of loving homes in Ward, Batesville, and Little Rock. Obviously, this is always subject to change – but you should definitely check them out!
Interesting Facts About Siamese Cats
If you’re new to Siamese cats; I’m super-envious. I had a Siamese many years ago, and she was one of the best cat companions I ever had.
It helps to know as much as you can about a breed before getting one. Here are some of the most interesting facts about Siamese cats:
- Siamese cats are originally from Thailand. The word ‘Siam’ was the original name for Thailand.
- They’re one of the most affectionate and mild-natured cat breeds, I hope you like lots of cuddles!
- They are fairly vocal and like to communicate by meowing. If you want a quiet cat, a Siamese is not for you.
- Siamese have a distinctive appearance with pointy ears, color points on their faces, and blue eyes.
- There are four main variations/colors, these are seal point, blue point, lilac point, chocolate point.
Color Variations of Siamese Cats
I know how exciting it is to bring a new kitten home. When you call a breeder, one of the main questions they’re going to ask you is what, if any, color Siamese you want.
Here’s a look at the main differences between the four color variations to help you decide on the color/type of Siamese you want:
This is the most common color variation so I’m sure you’re well aware of what Seal Points look like.
They have cream-colored bodies, with brown color points on their faces. Typically spreading from their noses and ears, to tail and paws.
Chocolate points are fairly rare. They look a lot like Seal Points, but you’ll notice the differences – particularly side-by-side.
The main differences are that their bodies are more ivory-colored, and their points are a darker, chocolate brown color (hence the name).
Lilac point Siamese cats have striking lilac color point markings. This is the result of the chocolate points having a blue gene.
Compared to the blue point variation, lilacs have a distinctive silvery-grey coat. They’re also referred to as ‘Frost Points’ sometimes due to their greyish ears, tails, and paws.
Blue points – as I think you can guess – have blue points on their faces. They also have what’s called a ‘cold-toned grey’ color body.
This is the variation I had many years ago, so Blue Points remain very close to me and always brings back memories.
How Much Do Siamese Kittens Cost?
The answer to this question is broad. Like a lot of exotic cat breeds, the price can vary a lot depending on the lineage, any noticeable features, and so on.
To narrow it down, I would say that generally speaking, you can expect to pay anywhere between $600-$1,000+.
But as I said, this really depends on the breeders and the exact type of Siamese you’re buying.
How Much Do Siamese Cats Cost?
If you can’t find any breeders with litters due in your area or you just want an adult cat – you can help an adult Siamese by adopting and rehoming a cat in need.
There are various shelters and rescue centers across the US, I recommend doing a little research and saving an older cat from a life in a shelter.
You will generally pay a lot less for an adult Siamese than a kitten, especially if you’re adopting from a rescue shelter.
I recommend taking a look at petfinder.com. This site is one of the largest online databases that connect you with around 11,000 animal shelters across the country.
Do Siamese Make Good Pets?
I’m not just saying this, but yes, Siamese cats make excellent pets.
All cats are awesome, fun, and friendly companions, but Siamese have some unique characteristics that might be exactly what you’re looking for in a pet.
They are chatty, loving, and enjoy interacting with humans. If you want a cat that you can spend time with, Siamese is one of the best breeds for you.
They also enjoy a lot of quiet downtime, as all cats do. You’ll find them curled up in their favorite spot, with a call, they’ll happily move over and sit on your lap for extra warmth.
They are easy to care for, loads of fun, have large personalities, and are, well, cats. What more could you want?
Are Siamese Easy To Care For?
Siamese are easy to care for, yes. The main issue with high-maintenance cats is dealing with long fur and thick coats.
Both of which Siamese do not have.
In fact, Siamese cats have short, thin fur. They don’t shed a lot, it’s rare that you’ll have to help them resolve a knot or something like that in their fur.
A weekly brush helps them to keep their coats sleek and free of debris. But honestly, you don’t have to brush them very often.
All they need is quality cat food, fresh drinking water, somewhere comfy to sleep (although they’ll choose anywhere you don’t want them to sleep), and plenty of love.
If you pinned me down to come up with a downside, the only thing I can think of is that they might be too active and vocal for some people.
But it’s a stretch to call it a downside. If you’re getting a cat, the best part is building up that bond by spending time together playing and hanging out – even if it is a bit one-sided!
