Thai cats – describing their place in the Siamese cat family — 1 Comment

  1. I agree with your perspective more than you would think. I love the old style Siamese or the Thai cat. The new one which was crossed with the Oriental is pretty but it’s not the same. The Cat Fancy rewrote the definition of the Siamese to reflect the modern version and consider it to be the original Siamese.

    It’s really confusing when you learn a lot of breeds are outcrosses. Birman, Burmese, Tonkinese, Himalayan, Snowshoe, and various colorpoints. Did I leave any out? All of these can be traced back to the Wichienmaat. So can the Oriental.

    It was nice to read an honest perspective of the Siamese and Thai. Thank you.
