The Siamese cat, with its distinct coloration, brilliant blue eyes, and inquisitive social personality, is one of the more popular cat breeds. The Siamese are very social cats. They are intelligent and curious and are known for their tendency to explore every nook and cranny of their homes. They are also a very talkative breed and can make quite long speeches.
Siamese cats need relatively little grooming. Their close-lying coat can do with a gentle brushing just once a week to remove dead hair.
This breed has several distinctive genetic faults, all of which are cosmetic and require no medical treatment. These include crossed eyes and a kinked tail. These faults are becoming more rare with time as breeders try to breed them out.
