Siamese cats have smooth lines, sharp color contrast, elegant and well-defined noble head, dark blue almond shaped eyes and silky short hair, which make them become active works of art. Combining this beauty with intelligence, curiosity and a love of life, we can get the essence of Siamese cat. Siamese cats, which first appeared in England, were brought home by an ambassador as a gift from Thailand. They appeared almost immediately at cat shows in the UK, and in the US they began in the early 20th century. Seal accent is still the most famous color. Their brown limbs are almost black, and with their light brown bodies, we are deeply moved. The Siamese cat with chocolate key color has cream white body and milk chocolate color of legs, tail, face and ears. Although this kind of color appears frequently, it is the blue key color that was officially recognized earlier. The Siamese cat, recognized in 1934 as the blue key color, has a bluish white body and dark blue extremities. Chocolate accents were later approved. In 1955, the light purple key color was recognized, and the variety was finally improved. The body of light purple key color is white, and the extremities are dark gray with peach color, so it looks very light and beautiful. Although color is a distinctive feature of this breed, body structure is equally important. Siamese cats are studied in terms of length. From the beginning, the breed standard required a long wedge-shaped head and long body lines. Slender legs support a strong tubular body, and slender neck and tail become elegant decorations. The short, close to the body coat perfectly sets off the long lines. The long head of a Siamese cat can be described as a straight profile with a straight chin. From the front, the outline of the face appears to be a smooth wedge, with large ears forming the two corners of the wedge. The most striking sign of the head is the slightly sloping dark blue almond eyes (at least one eye wide apart). Even if you can resist all the other charms of the breed, this pair of eyes can still capture you easily. Siamese cats can show irresistible wisdom and emotion.
