Siamese Cat Breed Profile

The Siamese cat breed profile is best described with a general description about Siamese cats.

To follow this it seemed useful to also include pictures of all the different colours and patterns of Siamese cats, a Siamese breed gallery if you prefer.

Siamese Cat Description

Siamese cats come in many different colours and patterns. All have blue eyes and are pointed which means they have colour on the extremities of the body. i.e tail, legs, face and ears. Some also have tabby or tortie markings as well. The rest of the body is cream or off white and may develop some tonal shading as the cat gets older. Tonal shading is usually more obvious in the darker colours such as seal and chocolate points.

Siamese cats are very intelligent and are often referred to as being very dog like. Siamese cats can be trained to play fetch and also respond well to clicker training. Siamese cats have been described as nasty and highly strung. This is not true and probably derives from the film Lady and the Tramp.

Siamese Cat Breed Profile by Colour and Pattern

Below is a gallery of Siamese cats for all the different colours and patterns. You can visit the individual pages for each of the colours and patterns by using the blue buttons underneath the individual photos. These pages include a description of each colour and pattern with pictures and the breed and colour profiles in detail.

For your convenience we have added the G.C.C.F breed numbers and also the F.I.F.E EMS codes which denote the colour and pattern of each of the different cats. T.I.C.A do not use breed numbers.

We are very grateful to the photographers and owners of the cats below for allowing us to use these photographs. The cats below are a cross section of cats that have been selected from photo albums of cats over the last thirty years. Many of the Siamese cats below are behind the show winners of today.

Siamese Colours and Breed Numbers

Remember you can read the individual Siamese cat breed profile by using the links under each photo below. Each page also includes the G.C.C.F standard of points for their colour and pattern. These should be read in conjunction with the ‘General Siamese Type Standard’ and the ‘Standard List of Withholding Faults’ which can be found on the Siamese Standard of Points page.

The Siamese breed profile covers general breed description and then dives a little deeper into each of the individual colours and patterns. Many thanks for the individual colour profiles that were contributed by various GCCF Siamese Judges.
