Seal Point Siamese

Most of our kittens are Seal points, with the dark brown points. Their color points refer to the face, ears, tail, and paws - the term is generally used in combination with color. "Seal Point" means the cat has seal colored (dark brown) points. Sex of the cat makes no difference as long as they are neutered/ spayed. Occasionally we have the next popular color ‘blue points’

The more traditional Siamese (know as the old Apple head Siamese) is one of the oldest breeds of domestic cats. It preserves the look of the breed much as it existed when originally imported from Siam - a muscular, athletic cat, with a more rounded head and striking brilliant blue eyes and impressive contrast between point and body color which characterizes the breed. They are very calm, affectionate cats, typically healthy and long-lived - 15-20 years are average, and more than 20 is not uncommon.

It is an intelligent, people-oriented cat which enjoys human companionship - whether it is as a lap warmer or chasing a toy. They are inquisitive and friendly, and like nothing better than to sit in the middle of something you are trying to read. They talk to their people in an affectionate, conversational way. With their calm temperaments, they are well-adapted to life in either a house or an apartment. They are not in perpetual motion - they have a fairly balanced activity level and are just as happy to chase a toy as to curl up in your lap for a snooze.

They love people, and most will go right up to strangers and demand to be petted. They have the somewhat perverse nature of most cats, so are sometimes most attracted to people who either don't like cats or are allergic to them. They are good family pets, and are very favorablel to of small children - they will tolerate liberties (not to be confused with an ill-treatment) >from them that they will not take from adults. When they've had enough, they simply make themselves unavailable. Most of them learn to sheathe their claws when playing with people, and it is rare to be scratched. With their mellow temperament they are very good with seniors citizens - they are marvelous companions and lap cats. When introduced at an early age, they will usually become friends with dogs or other animals. They can get lonely if left alone during the day, and will therefore demand more of your attention in the evenings. Two cats, especially if they are close in age, become good friends and are often found sleeping or playing together and grooming each other. But they still crave human attention, too.

They are very smart - which does not necessarily mean that they are easy to train. Each cat has a different identity - some, the first time you say "no,” will abstain from the activity forever, while those with the more mischievous natures, though they know it's forbidden, will wait until you're not around, and then do it anyway. Many Siamese can be taught the game of fetch or other tricks or will readily learn to walk on a harness and leash. These behaviors are far more successful if introduced at very young age, same as bathing.

Will scratch furniture same as any other cat will but can are easily trained to use a use a scratching post, sisal-covered scratching is my favorite. Clipping the nails regularly is recommended.

A Siamese cat is known for is its voice. They can be extremely loud, and sometimes it sounds like your cat is in absolute torment or sounds like a crying baby, when in fact he's just trying to make a specific point. Some are nonstop talkers, while others don't talk unless they have something important to say. The voice and conversational style is apparent from kitten hood, so you'll know what you're getting into. Most breeder’s contracts will state that they are indoor-only cats, permitted outdoors only on a leash. Too many outdoor cats end up as traffic fatalities, stolen or come in contact with a diseased cat, fleas, ticks, etc.

Other than that, there are no known defects that are specific to the Siamese. Feeding a good quality food will help prevent males for getting FUS meaning; Feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD), more commonly known as feline urinary syndrome (F.U.S.), a scientific term used to describe a variety of urinary tract disorders in cats. While there is no specific means of prevention, a healthy and properly balanced diet can significantly reduce the chances of your cat getting FLUTD / FUS. This is not solely a Siamese affliction it can happen in any breed of cat.

Size of an average-sized Siamese is; males can weigh from 10 pounds and up, and females seven to10 pounds. Registered cats are guaranteed from reputable breeders are more expensive then those you find in a newspaper ad from a back yard breeder.
