It’s no wonder that Siamese cats are so recognizable as they are one of the oldest cat breeds globally, dating back to the 14th century Thailand where they received their namesake (Thailand was formally known and Siam).
Nowadays, the Siamese cat is well-loved for its striking features, including a luxurious, sleek coat, which comes in multiple variations of colors, each as beautiful as the last, and stunning blue eyes. They are also distinguished by their unique personality archetype. Often called the “dog-cat,” Siamese are particularly friendly with their human companions and extraordinarily chatty.
