Siamese cat, also known as Thai cat and western female cat, is called Siamese in English. It originated in the 14th century and its ancestors were impure Asian cats. Although scientists have no evidence of the origin of Siamese cats, they believe that Siamese cats are from Thailand. According to records, Siamese cats lived in Thailand’s palaces and temples hundreds of years ago, and then they were given as diplomatic gifts to other countries.
Most people think that the first time Siamese cats arrived outside Asia was in 1884 when the British Consul in Bangkok, Thailand (1847-1916), brought a pair of Siamese cats pho and Mia from Bangkok to England and gave them to his sister Lilian Jane veley (later veley became one of the founders of Siam cat club in 1901). However, looking through the records, US President lesford case received a Siamese cat as a gift from the US consulate in Bangkok in 1878. This is the first time that there are historical records that Siamese cats left Asia six years earlier than they landed in Britain, but they did not breed. In 1885, Pho and Mia gave birth to three young Siamese cats, duen Ngai, kalohom and khromata. Three kittens and their parents took part in the cat show at Crystal Palace in London in the same year. The unique posture and behavior of Siamese cats impressed the participants deeply. Unfortunately, the three kittens died shortly after the exhibition, but there was no record of the cause of death.
Siamese cats are also known in Thailand as wichien Maat, meaning “moon diamond”, which is enough to prove how much the local people attach importance to Siam cats. It is said that in the past, Siamese cats had special personnel in charge of living and eating in the imperial palace of Thailand. Even if there was an economic crisis in Thailand, their lives were not affected at all.
Siamese cats are regarded as aristocrats by many people. However, compared with Persian cats of another kind, Siamese cats are much more extroverted. They are lively and active, and respond immediately to the voice of their owners. If you want to have a smart cat around you that can break free and peaceful life, then Siamese cats will not let you down. As for some people on the Internet asking whether Siamese cats need to walk to consume their physical strength, experts say that Siamese cats can meet their physical needs by exercising at home. If they are worried that Siamese cats are not active enough, they should play more games with them every day.
