The Siamese cat has distinctive almond shaped eyes that slant towards the nose and are deep blue in colour. The ears of the Siamese cat are large and pointed. The coat of the Siamese cat is short and silky.
The Siamese cat of today has a sleek, muscular body with a long neck and fine head although the original Siamese cats were more stocky. Although the majority of Cat Associations favour the more modern slender Siamese cat there are many that favour the traditional stockier Siamese cats.
The Siamese cat is intelligent, active, inquisitive and affectionate, enjoying human company and good with children. However, Siamese cats dislike being left alone for long periods. Siamese cats are vocal, often “talking” to their owners.
