Classic markings and a friendly personality make Siamese cats an iconic breed

Siamese cats are an affectionate, loving breed of cat. They’re known for their vocal manner, often ‘chatting’ with their owners and meowing for food, play and affection. Despite their seemingly aloof attitude, Siamese cats can be quite sociable, so it’s common to adopt or buy them in pairs.
Their slim stature, distinctive colouring and their beautiful blue eyes make them an instantly recognisable cat.
