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.

    I found some Japanese words that would be ideal to name a Siamese cat. How about “Tatsukami.” That’s the Japanese word for “tornado” Maybe a Siamese black cat could be named that. Also, “Yuki Dama” is Japanese for “snowball.” Maybe you could be a little ironic and name a black Siamese cat Yuki Dama. Funny, huh?

    We named our 16 year old Siamese cat T-Mac. “T” for short. He got that name from a Orlando Basketball player, Tracey McGrady who was our favorite Orlando Magic basketball player back when he adopted us He is demanding, selfish, patient, but fluffy and extremely adorable. Not sure if he is anything like the person he is named after, but I hope he sticks around for a long time.
