Early Siamese cats are discussed in manuscripts dating as far back as the year 1300. The first Siamese to arrive in the United States was sent as a gift to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1878.
Today, Siamese cats are quite popular and are known for being smart, social and loving. Their level of activity and playfulness is often more comparable to dogs than most other breeds of cat.
One of the oldest breeds of Asian cat, the Siamese originates from Thailand, which was once known as Siam. The most distinctive feature of this cat is its “pointed” coat, with a pale cream-colored body and darker brown at its “points”: the feet, face, ears and tip of the tail.
