Siamese Cat Picture Gallery

The intention behind publishing this Siamese cat picture gallery is not to present row upon row of beautiful Siamese cats but to try and be vaguely instructional in showing quite a wide variety of “ordinary” Siamese cats from different parts of the world, at different times in history, some of which are purebred and some of which are not. Although I don’t know which are and which aren’t. It can be hard to tell sometimes. Even purebred cats can look like purebred-mix cats because they are not to standard. Elisa just wrote about one example, a Maine Coon that was abandoned.

I don’t think it matters if they are purebred or not. You can see purebred modern and more traditional Siamese cats on other pages on this site. Please use the search facility.

That said, there are some Helmi Flick pictures here. She always photographs purebred cats unless they are random bred show cats. Her photos will be of known purebred Siamese or Thai cats.

I have marked up some of the pictures as allowed under the license to publish them. There is a picture of Jane Powell and a Siamese cat. This is copyright protected but I have published the back of the photograph where there is a description of it and pasted a small version of the picture next to this description and claim fair use on that basis (i.e. a small image).

I have added a short description of my own underneath the fully formatted versions of these photographs….

These are thumbnail images in a square (cropped) format. Please click on them to go to large, fully formatted versions.

  1. Very interesting. So much variation. I MUCH prefer the traditional Siamese look to the modern one. The traditional one is alot more conventional and normal domestic cat looking but I guess my taste is fairly pedestrian when it comes to cats. I like the traditional ones – I still think they are beautiful with their different types of pointing etc.

    • I am pleased you noticed the variation. I tried to do that. I like natural things and I like simple things. The traditional is the way the Siamese was and should be. The modern Siamese is a mistake and another example of human arrogance and insensitivity.

      • My fave is the one in the stockxpert image – it looks like a typical pointed moggy from the side profile although with a slightly curved ‘ski-jump’ nose (I dont mean that rudely) which is actually the opposite curve to the modern Siamese whose noses seem to not only be very long but convex (if the ski jump is concave). I also like pointed BSHs. There’s a similarity between a traditional Siamese and a pointed BSH I suppose. But the lovely particularity of the Siamese is those deep blue eyes. Beautiful cats.
