Some 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:
- There are four different color variations; seal point, chocolate point, blue point, and lilac point.
- Siamese cats are known for their affectionate nature – get ready for loads of fussing and nose kisses!
- The word ‘Siam‘ is the former name of Thailand, that’s where the name comes from.
- Typical features unique to Siamese are their pointy ears, crystal-blue eyes, sleek bodies, and color points on their faces.
- Siamese cats are very chatty and vocal. If they want to tell you something, expect to hear about it.
Color Variations of Siamese Cats
When you call a breeder about a Siamese kitten, one of the first questions they’re going to ask you is what, if any, color Siamese you want.
There are four main color variations of Siamese. Here’s a look at the main differences in appearance to help you decide which color/type is right for you:
This is the most common color variation so I’m sure you’re well aware of what Seal Points look like. Even if you didn’t know this is what they’re called.
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 actually look a lot like Seal Points, but when you see one next to a Seal Point it’s obvious.
The main differences are that their bodies are more ivory-colored, and their points are a darker, chocolate brown color (hence the name).
Blue Points have, well, blue points on their faces (makes perfect sense doesn’t it). 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.
Lilac point Siamese cats have striking lilac color point markings. They are essentially Chocolate Points with a blue gene changing the coloring.
Compared to the blue point variation, lilacs also have a distinctive silvery-grey coat. They’re also referred to as ‘Frost Points’ sometimes due to their greyish ears, tails, and paws.
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?
When adopting or buying any pet, it’s important you know that they will be a good fit into your household before you bring them home.
The good news is that Siamese are social and adaptable animals.
Whether you have a busy household with young kids and other animals, or it’s just you curling up in front of the TV at night – they’ll fit right in.
As long as you can give them the attention they need, they’ll give you plenty of love back. It’s really that kind of relationship with Siamese cats.
Are Siamese Cats Easy To Take Care Of?
Yes, Siamese cats are low-maintenance and easy to take care of.
If you don’t want to spend time grooming, they can take care of their short, fine coats for the most part. They aren’t known to have any medical issues either, and in my experience don’t get into a lot of territorial fights.
The only ‘high maintenance’ thing about Siamese cats is the attention they demand from us. Both in the form of playtime, and being petted and fussed.
But they give it back tenfold in affection! It’s a perfect trade-off if you ask me.
If there is one downside to owning a Siamese, and I don’t even think it should be called a ‘downside’, it’s that they do require more attention than some other breeds.
If you made it this far, what are you waiting for? Siamese are interesting, curious, cute, and loads of fun. Good luck!
