It's so sad that what Siamese are supposed to be has been mutated to something so ugly, unhealthy, and lacking the characteristics of the Siamese. There are definitely a lot of people out there breeding traditional Siamese, but as you can see with the ever changing names, it's a joke. People who breed to please associations or for money are not doing it the right way.

My family has been breeding the best kind of Siamese for over 40 years, not as a business or as a huge cattery, but just for the reason that everyone wants a Siamese, because we need to preserve a quality, healthy, long lived cat.

The link to our website is below. It is there not because we need to sell more kittens, because they're usually always sold quickly, but hopefully to educate people on what they should look for when buying a Siamese.

"Real" Siamese
by: Lisa James

Shareen,

I have to refute this. I have CFA yearbooks dating back many years, & the "ugly, unhealthy" cats you believe them to be are the same today as they were many years ago. They are lovely, elegant, refined cats that meet the breed standard in any way. The "traditionals" were given their own status by those people who's cats don't meet the written breed standard.

In rescue right now I have a 15 year old seal point male, & while he is a little more moderate than a show cat, he would have been quite typy in his day. He remains healthy, & in good weight, is friendly, affectionate, & probably has at least another 5-7 good years in him.

I believe there will always be a market for both "styles" of Siamese, but to make them a separate breed is ludicrous. A Siamese is a Siamese is a Siamese. Genetically these 2 styles of cat are the SAME BREED.

Siamese
by: Maggie Sharp

When I think 'Siamese' I image a slick short-haired cat, with a long elegant body build, a straight wedge-shaped profile and large alert ears. In my opinion the traditional Siamese are a bit un-unique... I'm all for modern cats.
