Siamese are a very intelligent, affectionate and social breed. Often referred to as ‘extroverts’ they thrive of the attention of their owner, or companionship of another Siamese. Being such a social cat, they don’t cope well with being left alone for extended periods of time, and can occasionally suffer from depression due to a lack of interaction.
Siamese are the most vocal of all cat breeds, having a unique deep and loud voice. They have a tendancy to bond closely to one particular person and will constantly demand attention and affection. Siamese are often described as ‘dog-like’ as they often enjoy playing fetch and are extremely loyal to their owners.
Siamese Health Issues

Upper Respiratory Infection: More common in young cats, and similar to colds in humans. Will often result in sneezing, and can be prevented through vaccinations.
