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:
- 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 known for their affectionate nature – get ready for loads of fussing and nose kisses!
- 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.
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. 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 a bluish-white body, with blue points – as their name suggests.
It’s more of a grey color to the untrained eye. Their paws tend to be a pale grey, often referred to as slate-colored.
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?
One of the first questions everyone asks, is ‘how much does a Siamese kitten cost?’
This is hard to answer because 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.
Caring for Siamese Cats
Just like most cats with short fur, Siamese are easy to care for and low-maintenance.
The only real huge chore that comes with caring for cats is brushing and taking care of long-haired breeds.
Apart from that, it’s really just a case of providing food, water, plenty of warm spots to sleep, and some cat furniture for them to play with.
Siamese are a little more demanding than your average cat, I will say that. They love to play, be fussed, curl up on laps, and generally be involved in where the action is.
Nothing wrong with that though, right!
Just make sure you have some cat toys and furniture like a cat tree, tunnel, and some other things that’ll direct their claws away from your furniture.
Overall, I would say they’re easy to care for and low maintenance.
