Details

Although I adore all cats, I make no secret of my addiction to Siamese and Oriental Shorthair kittens. My adoration for these two intelligent and affectionate breeds runs deep. In addition, these breeds have a devilish sense of humour. They also have a fantastic ability to find ways that can sometimes put their owners on the ropes. The Oriental Shorthair was developed using Siamese cats as a base breed. To develop a variety of colours, they were crossed with other breeds. Although their body colours may be different, their personalities are very similar. Opinionated, curious and intelligent, these cats are fascinating and charming. As a result, Siamese and Oriental Shorthair kittens may end up being surrendered to shelters. Although their owners were dazzled by their charm and beauty, before buying or adopting one, they probably did not do the research necessary to fully understand the breed’s unique personality and know what they were getting into.
Siamese and Oriental Shorthair cats are incredibly noisy. They sometimes talk loudly and incessantly with their owners, for hours on end, about anything that interests them. They are not shy felines, but make their needs known. And they expect these needs to be met immediately, or their owner will find out.
These cats are as intelligent as a “button” and are also curious about everything in their environment. They love to explore in cupboards and cabinets. And if the owner isn’t paying attention while dining, these cats may blatantly steal food from the owner’s plate.
Siamese and Oriental Shorthair cats require a lot of attention. To help keep these cats happy and emotionally balanced, they need plenty of mental and physical stimulation. Siamese and Oriental Shorthair cats are very loyal companions. They can become overly attached to their owners.
The Siamese cat has a long history. This unique breed has endured for over ten centuries and, in Thailand, was considered sacred. Siamese cats were often used as temple guardians.
Legends permeate the history of the Siamese cat. One of the most popular fables tells of the reasons why Siamese cats have crooked tails and crossed eyes. There was a pregnant Siamese cat whose job was to guard a sacred golden cup used by Buddha.
