Country of Origin: Thailand
Life span: 15 - 20 years
 
 
Appearance
Siamese have almond-shaped, bright blue eyes and short, flat-lying coats. Many Siamese cats from Thailand had a kink in their tails.
 
Temperament
Siamese cats are vocal, extroverted, and active.  They are affectionate and become very attached to their owners.
 
Care
Siamese cats have short coats that require little human maintenance; in fact, too much brushing can damage a Siamese coat.  Finger brushing can be used as an alternative to brushing your cat with a brush--to do this, simply wet your fingers, run them through the cat's fur, and then dispose of the hairs that get stuck to your fingers.
 
Heath
Siamese are known for their longevity, though they can suffer from cardiomyopathy and respiratory infections.  They are also sensitive to anesthesia and this should be taken into account by the cat's veterinarian if the cat has surgery.
