Facts of the Oriental and Siamese cat breed

 The Siamese cat is a fascinating breed with a rich history that stretches back centuries. Originally from Thailand,which was known as Siam until 1939. The Siamese cat was considered a sacred animal and was revered as the guard of Buddhist temples. Only nobles and wealthy people were able to afford to have such a breed in their homes, and taking Siamese cats out of the country was considered a crime.It wasn't until the late 1880s, when the King of Siam presented purebred Siamese kittens to the Queen of England, that the breed started to gain popularity outside of Thailand. The Queen of England was particularly fond of the breed and even used Siamese cats to guard her possessions.

 In England, Siamese cats were admired for their unique appearance but were not recognized as a distinct breed. It wasn't until American breeders got their hands on these cats in the 1950s that the breed started to take off. These American breeders were able to refine the Siamese cat's distinctive body shape and develop new coat colors, which ultimately led to the creation of the Oriental cat breed. It was only in 1977 that they received official recognition and a standard in the United States. After the recognition of the Siamese and breeding systems, the Oriental cat was officially recognized as an breed. The selection work of the breeders was able to create solid colors. The name "foreign shorthair" was given to the first solid color Siamese cats, which are now known as Orientals.

 Today, both Siamese and Oriental cats are recognized as part of the same breed group and have a shared standard. The Siamese cat remains a beloved breed around the world, known for its striking appearance, intelligent demeanor, and loyal companionship.

 One of the most unique features of the Siamese cat is its coloration. Siamese cats are known for their "pointed" coat pattern, which means that their fur is a lighter color on their face, ears, paws, and tail than it is on the rest of their body. This distinctive coloration is caused by a genetic mutation that affects the production of melanin, the pigment that gives fur its color.

 In addition to their unique appearance, Siamese cats are known for their affectionate personalities and their intelligence. These cats are highly social and thrive on interaction with their owners, often following them around the house and seeking out attention. Siamese cats are also highly trainable and can even learn to do tricks, making them a popular choice for cat owners who want a pet that's both beautiful and smart.
