Siamese Cat Breeders in Mississippi With Kittens and Cats for Sale
Unfortunately, at this time I’m not able to find any Siamese Cat Breeders located in Mississippi.
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 Olive Branch, Kiln, Brookhaven, and Ocean Springs. Obviously, this is always subject to change – but you should definitely check them out!
Some Interesting Facts About Siamese Cats
If this is your first Siamese cat – I’m excited for you. It helps to learn about the breed though. Here are some interesting facts about Siamese to get you up to speed:
- Typical features unique to Siamese are their pointy ears, crystal-blue eyes, sleek bodies, and color points on their faces.
- 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.
- Siamese cats are very chatty and vocal. If they want to tell you something, expect to hear about it.
- There are four different color variations; seal point, chocolate point, blue point, and lilac point.
The Classic Four Color Variations of Siamese Cats
As mentioned above, there are lots of shades and color variations of Siamese, but it comes down to four main variations by standard.
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 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.
I have to admit, I think the lilac points are the cutest. Their pointing is lilac, almost lavender in color sometimes.
The biggest giveaway is their nose leather. They typically have a creamer, paler body color than Blue Points.
What Is the Average Price of a Siamese Cat?
You should always buy exotic cats like Siamese from reputable breeders. And, as you can guess, it’s not going to be cheap.
As to how much Siamese kittens cost, this is hard to answer. There are a number of factors that affect the price; such as pedigree, the history of the breeder, show quality, markings, colors, variety, and so on.
Exotic cats like Siamese can range in price from a few hundred bucks to several thousand.
I rang a couple of catteries and breeders to get a ballpark figure before writing this and I was told Siamese typically range between $600-$1,000 on average. So, that’s a good ballpark figure to work with.
If that’s out of your budget, you could always consider adopting and rehoming a cat from a shelter or rescue.
That’s always a noble thing to do, and often it gives an older cat another chance at enjoying the company of a loving family.
Are Siamese Good Pets?
Siamese cats are one of the most lovable and loyal cat breeds. They enjoy nothing more than hanging out with their human companions and aren’t quiet about it either.
If you socialize them from kittens, they are known to get on well with other pets – even cats – and kids. If you have a busy and chaotic household, don’t worry, they’ll fit right in.
Have a quiet home life and look forward to relaxing with a lap cat? Siamese are just as happy hanging out on a lap watching TV as I bet you are.
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!
