Other Ways to Find Siamese Cats in New Mexico
There are not a lot of breeders in New Mexico specializing in Siamese cats. If you’re not able to find what you’re looking for, I recommend checking 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 Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Las Cruces. 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:
- 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.
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.
Seal Point is the ‘classic’ Siamese color. They have pale fawn to cream-colored bodies with dark brown ‘Points’.
Points, in Siamese terms, are the markings on their face, ears, paws, and tails. This is where it’s easiest to tell apart the different variations.
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.
Chocolate Points have the strongest contrast from dark chocolate color markings, to a cream, ivory color body.
If you look closely, you’ll see they have pinkish noses and paw pads. It can be hard to tell if you have a Chocolate Point from an early age as they develop their coloring later than Seal 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.
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 Easy To Look After and Care For?
Let’s be honest, most cats are easy to look after and care for. Unless they are long-haired, of course, which Siamese are not.
You don’t need to brush a Siamese very often. They have short, thin coats, and unless they go somewhere they shouldn’t and get something stuck in their fur, they can easily groom themselves.
As long as you’re providing quality food, fresh drinking water, some comfy sleeping spots, and some toys and furniture to challenge them – you’ll have a happy cat on your hands.
If there was just one downside, and it’s really not a ‘downside’, it’s just that Siamese cats can be a little demanding when it comes to attention. And, if they don’t get the attention they want, they can be noisy.
But that’s it. In a nutshell; Siamese are fun, loyal, affectionate, curious, and a little noisy sometimes.
I hope you find a breeder and the perfect kitty you’re happy to bring home and spend many wonderful years together with, as I did with my Siamese!
