History behind the term 'Siamese Cat'


Arrival in Siam

Siamese cats are believed to have originated in Siam, which is now Thailand. They were highly revered in Thai culture and were considered sacred companions to Buddhist monks.


Introduction to the Western world

In 1884, the first Siamese cats were brought from Siam to the Western world. They were introduced to Britain when the British Consul-General in Bangkok, Edward Blencowe Gould, gifted a pair of Siamese cats to his sister Lilian Jane Gould, who exhibited them at the Crystal Palace Cat Show in London.


Recognition by cat fancy associations

Siamese cats quickly gained popularity and sparked great interest among cat enthusiasts. In 1885, they were recognized by various cat fancy associations, including the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) in Britain and the American Cat Fanciers Association (ACFA) in the United States.


Formal breed standard

In 1902, the Siamese cat breed was given a formal breed standard. The standard described the ideal characteristics of the breed, including its distinctive blue almond-shaped eyes, short coat, and unique color points on the ears, paws, tail, and mask.


Increased popularity

Siamese cats experienced a surge in popularity after World War II. Returning soldiers brought them back to their home countries, spreading awareness and admiration for the breed worldwide. Their striking appearance and playful personalities captured the hearts of many cat lovers.


Expansion of color varieties

While the traditional Siamese cat had seal point coloration (dark brown/black points with a creamy body), breeders began developing new color variations. Over time, the breed expanded to include blue point, chocolate point, lilac point, and more, broadening the options for Siamese cat enthusiasts.

Siamese cats are notorious "shoulder cats." They love to perch on your shoulder, providing you with a unique and regal accessory throughout the day.
