Some Facts About Siamese Cats
If you’re new to Siamese cats; first of all I’m super-envious. I had a Siamese many years ago, and she was one of the best cat companions I ever had.
Secondly, it helps to know what you’re getting in to, so 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!
- 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.
- The word ‘Siam‘ is the former name of Thailand, that’s where the name comes from.
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?
Like most exotic cat breeds, the price varies a lot depending on the cat’s pedigree, markings, where you’re buying from, and so on.
As a general rule of thumb, you should expect to pay between $600-$1,000. But, as I said, this can go a lot higher for pedigree cats.
It’s something to discuss with a breeder you’re interested in buying from.
How Much Do Siamese Cats Cost?
If you want to buy an adult Siamese cat, they typically cost less than kittens.
In fact, if you’re fine with an adult, you should consider adopting a cat in need of a home.
There are various dedicated Siamese shelters and rescues across the county. Or, you could take a look on petfinder.com. This site connects with some 11,000 shelters in the US, I’m sure you’ll find the perfect cat on there.
Are Siamese Good Pets?
Yes, Siamese are great pets – and I’m not being biased.
They are one of the most lovable and loyal cat breeds there is. 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.
At the same time, if you just look forward to relaxing in front of the TV with a cat, they’ll be right there beside you.
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!
