Crazy Facts about Siamese Cats

As mentioned above, Siamese cats have quite recognizable physical characteristics. This includes a slim, sleek build with short fur, elongated ears and striking blue eyes.

Although the Siamese cats in Lady and the Tramp were diabolical troublemakers, in real life these felines are very affectionate and extroverted. They often bond with a single person and occasionally suffer from depression if left alone for too long. (Fun fact: this is why Siamese cats are often bought in pairs.)

Siamese cats are also known as a chatty breed, frequently making a loud, low-pitched sound to demand attention.

The name Siamese comes from Siam, a term formerly used for the country of Thailand.  For hundreds of years, the cats were very important to royalty. (Get more on that here.)

The cats eventually appeared in Great Britain and then the United States near the end of the 19th century, and the rest is history.
