Siamese cats are highly intelligent, curious and perceptive. They are also very strong willed. In common with other cat breeds from Thailand they are often more like dogs than cats. Not only are they people orientated, they often bond strongly to one person. They will tend to follow that person around. The Siamese retains a kittenish and playful nature throughout its adult life. Though often most suitable as an indoor cat, they are highly active and spirited. The Siamese cat personality is not one to be alone or ignored for long periods.

The Siamese cat combines the grace of the panther, the fleetness of the deer, the softness of down, the strength of the tiger, the affection of the dog and the courage of the lion…they are a continual study in symmetry, grace and elegance.

The Siamese has poor night vision, unlike other cats, and for this reason tends to be active day rather than night. Here is the ICA (International Cat Association) view of the Siamese cat personality:

The Siamese is the perfect pet for someone who wants lots of interaction and activity. They are wonderful with children and other pets. They are very loving, loyal, intuitive, demanding and social. It has been said by many who have owned Siamese that one should have two – so that they can entertain each other while their owners are away. Otherwise, one must be prepared to drop everything upon returning home in order to spend half an hour or more “hearing about the day”.

  1. I have a Siamese, a little boy who was a stray that we took in when he was about 4 months old. He weighed 2.4 lbs. He now weighs about 10 lbs. and has grown a lot, he is 1 1/2 yrs. old now. He is neutered and declawed. He can be affectionate, but he jumps on everything, chews on paper, knocks things off the kitchen table and bites. He bites a lot. You can be petting him then all of a sudden he bites you. Is this normal? When he wants me to get up in the morning to feed him he pulls my hair and slaps me in the face with his paw or bites my arm.
