Siamese cats: everyone knows their general appearance due to their very distinct features. They're the cats with the tan bodies, and dark brown tails, paws, face and ears. Oh, and how can you forget those beautiful, bright-blue eyes just begging for attention?
Their appearance is rather sophisticated and mysterious, as if they are beautiful, little, furry creatures dressed up with masks. Their name is derived from their origination in Siam, today known as Thailand.
About Siamese Cats
Siamese cats make great companions and pets due to their outgoing personalities and vocal nature. With cute, raspy voices, they are not afraid to try to tell you what’s on their mind, and follow you about the house doing so. This is not a cat breed for someone who prefers a quiet house.
The Siamese cat breed loves human interaction and will stay by your side so long as you allow them to. If you’re watching TV, they will sit on your lap. When you’re asleep, you can rest assured that you will never sleep alone. They will act as a true and loyal companion for the duration of their 11-15 year lifespan.
Another reason why Siamese cats are a great breed to have is because their short, fine coat does not shed as much as that of a typical cat, and they are very easy to groom. You might even be able to leave the grooming up to your child or family dog because Siamese cats get along very well with children and other pets!
Speaking of having children, having a Siamese cat in the home with children will likely make for one happy cat, as long as the children treat it nicely. Siamese cats thrive in homes when given a lot of attention, and are known to give back the attention they receive. Love your Siamese and it will love you right back! Sounds like the perfect family cat, right?

Choosing the Purrfect Name
Whether you choose a unique name, a Thai name, or a little bit of both, you are bound to name your cat something that is very suitable.
Pay close attention to your individual cat’s personality as every cat is different, just like every person. Using their personality characteristics can help you to find inspiration for some names.
Need some more naming tips? Try these:
- Let your cat help: If you know of a few names that you like, leave it up to your cat to decide! You can try calling out the names to see if any capture the cat’s attention. If that doesn’t work, write down names on pieces of paper and place a treat on each paper. The first paper the cat consumes the treat from is the name they chose.
- Flip a coin: Sometimes it can boil down to just two great names, so why not flip a coin to make the decision? Heads is name A and tails is name B.
- Get input: If you will not be the only cat owner, ask others in the house for their opinions on your name ideas, or to give their own ideas.
Just look into those sky blue eyes and you will find some inspiration for the perfect name for your Siamese kitty. Your cat is in no hurry, so take your time to find the best one!

I have two beautiful Siamese oriental cats. I have named them Sia and Mese. I bought them to help me cope with my husband being diagnosed and hospitalised with altzhiemers they have been so wonderful for my state of health. I feel that they are so sensitive to my mood swings. My heart is broken because of my darling husband. I do not know how I could have coped without Sia and Mese this past year.

I love Siamese cats! Years ago I had a Pepper and Cinnamon. Now I have Cayenne and Sugar. We named these two girls sight unseen and their names fit them to "T"! They are 3 years old and happy, healthy and loving.

Have had Siamese cats since 1980. They started out with Freckles and Rascal. Learning how interactive they are and part of the family, the next were all given people names. Andy, Sammy, Holly, Minnie (breeder named her), Maggie and now my last one is Molly. Molly has been an only cat for about a year and a half. Surprisingly she is loving it. She was a scared nobody when we got her from the breeder at 2 1/2 years old. With much patience and love she has come around to be a super cat. She has a trick that totally cracks us up. She lays on her back with feet curled up in the air, whenever you say "Are you cute?" Of course it has to be in the correct tone and on the bed or sofa. Used to have cats that fetched, but this one doesn't, but the trick makes up for it.
