History

The sophisticated Siamese toma su nombre de su país de origen, the kingdom of siam, which is now thailand. The oldest document that mentions it, the Tamra Maew, data of 1350 and was found in Ayutthaya, the capital of the kingdom since 1350 until 1767. This work is a treatise on cats, in the form of poems accompanied by illustrations. Some of the illustrations show cats with thin, pale bodies and darker masks on their faces., ears, legs and tails. At that time, eran bizcos y tenían nudos en la cola, características que sólo siglos después se convirtieron en defectos que los criadores pudieron prácticamente eliminar.

Legend has it that these cats were none other than the guardians of royal treasures, and that they watched them with such attention that they ended up squinting.

In Europe, it was in great britain, at the end of the 19th century, where the Siamese was first heard. In 1871, two specimens were exhibited in the first feline exhibition in modern history, held in the Crystal Palace From london. En el catálogo del evento se decía que eran los primeros en pisar el país, which is very likely.

However, no fueron ellos los que iniciaron el desarrollo de la raza en el país, but Pho and Mia, two specimens that Owen Gould, British Consul General, received in 1884 as a gift from the king of Siam.

He took them to Britain and his sister, Lilian Jane Veley, took care of them. Se enamoró de estos magníficos felinos y decidió presentarlos en la Exposición del Palacio de Cristal de 1885. Despertaron un gran interés por parte del público. Hay algunas fotografías de esta época que muestran que eran bastante robustos y tenían la cabeza redonda. They were the first two specimens registered in the British Register of Siamese, un registro llevado por uno de los clubes de propietarios de gatos que existían desde hacía varios años y que fueron los precursores del Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF), founded in 1910.

They died right after this exposure, pero entretanto habían parido una camada. Lilian Jane Veley continued to dedicate herself to these cats; with a view to developing the breed, came to found the Siamese Cat Club in 1901, the world's first Siamese breed club.

Among 1884 and late nineteenth century, many were imported siamese cats from Siam to Great Britain and enrolled in the British Siamese Register. In fact, the breed quickly gained in popularity among the English aristocracy; as a result of fashion, muchos de sus miembros querían poseer uno. In 1892 se elaboró una norma que definía los atributos físicos que debía tener un sujeto para ser admitido en el registro.

The Siamese arrived in France in 1885, cuando un diplomático francés trajo dos ejemplares de Bangkok para el Jardin des Plantes de París. In 1893, the Dr. Oustalet, professor at the Museum of Natural History, wrote about the siamese cats traídos por la nuera del presidente Carnot. Se preocupó de describirlos con precisión y se preguntó si esta raza descendía de una especie salvaje.

The introduction of Siamese cat in the United States took place in 1879. The American Consul in Bangkok, after learning about the fondness for cats of the then president's wife, Rutherford Birchard Hayes, sent him a Siamese, who he called Siam.

The breed really took off in America in the early 1900s, helped by the lady's cats Clinton Locke. Founder in 1899 of the Beresford Cat Club, el primer registro de gatos de raza del país, bought a copy in France, Lockehaven Siam, which won the award for the best cat in America in 1906 en Detroit. He repeated this feat the following year in Chicago, this time with a female, Lockehaven Elsa. In 1909 a breed club was founded, the Siamese Cat Society of America, who published a first standard.

However, the breed's development was interrupted by the First World War, both in the United States and in Europe.

The development of Siamese cat in the United States it also owes a lot to Virginia Cobb. Originaria de Massachusetts, fell in love with the breed during a cat show at the Madison Square Garden of New York in 1928. He decided to import his first copy, whom he called CH Oriental Nanki Pooh de Newton. This female lived 17 years and had many litters.

Además de estar muy activa e involucrada en la cría y distribución del Siamese in United States, Virginia Cobb was also interested in its genetics. In collaboration with Clyde Edgar Keeler, Harvard University geneticist, exploró en particular los aspectos científicos de los diferentes colores del pelaje. El primer color conocido del siamés había sido el seal point, with dark brown tips and a creamy coat. However, a medida que se hacían reproducciones, appeared the blue point (dark blue tips and bluish-white fur), the chocolat point (chocolate tips, ivory fur) and the lila point (pink gray tips, White fur).

The Second World War was a second brake on the expansion of the race, especially in Europe. At the end of the war, the breed was even on the verge of extinction in Britain.

New blood was needed to expand the gene pool and advance. Once again, several specimens were imported from Thailand, both to Europe and the United States.

However, just like before the two world wars, the Siamese had difficulty adapting to the local climate, very different from the tropical climate of your native Thailand. Los criadores de todos los países se enfrentaron a elevadas pérdidas, mostly due to gastroenteritis and parasites.

This did not prevent the breed from gaining popularity from the decade of 1960, both in Europe and the United States. Many breeders and show judges began to favor a slimmer look. Esta última comenzó a evolucionar gradualmente, a medida que avanzaban la cría y la selección.

The Americans, in particular, preferían un cuerpo tubular y elegante, así como una cabeza larga. Englishmen, on the other hand, they gave priority to almond eyes, large ears and a little lower on the skull. In addition to evolving, las normas también empezaron a diferir de un país a otro.

However, around the world, the Siamese got longer, with a fine bone structure and a narrow head. The breeders' work also made it possible to eliminate strabismus and tail knots..

Esta forma de evolucionar la morfología de la raza fue la elegida por la mayoría de los criadores, since the beginning of the years 70. Other, few, they decided to keep Thai cat. With the passing of the decades, the gap between a Modern Siamese cat, heavily modeled by man, and Thai cat, correspondiente al tipo físico original de la raza y conocido como Thai. At the beginning of the Decade of 2000, esta última fue finalmente reconocida como una raza distinta por la mayoría de los organismos oficiales.

However, the Modern Siamese cat has stolen much of the limelight and enjoys much greater popularity. This explains that she herself was at the origin of several other races:

The recognition of Modern Siamese cat

Modern Siamese cat
Modern Siamese cat – Wikipedia

With a history of several centuries, the Modern Siamese cat began to be recognized by national and international official organizations in the years 30.

The American Cat Breeders Association (CFA) was the first to recognize the breed in 1934. The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) did the same in 1936.

The Fédération Internationale Féline (FIFé), que reúne a las autoridades felinas de unos cuarenta países, including Switzerland and Belgium, did the same in 1949. Ten years later, also recognized the Oriental shorthair cat, before doing the same in 1983 with the him Balinese cat, and then in 1985 with the him Oriental Longhair cat: these four races together constitute a group in their own right.

The Canadian Cat Association (CCA) recognized the Siamese in 1950, just one year after FIFé.

In 1979, the International Cat Association (TICA) also recognized the Siamese and included him in a group with the Balinese cat, the Oriental shorthair cat and the Oriental Longhair cat, who were admitted at the same time.

Popularity of "Modern Siamese cat"

In Europe, It was in Great Britain that the Siamese, y todavía hoy es en este país donde tiene más éxito. Still the most successful cat in the UK, ocupando el cuarto lugar en número de registros anuales en el Consejo de Gobierno Británico del Cat Fancy (GCCF), at around 1.500 a year. However, this figure triples that of the middle of the years 90, cuando el número de registros superaba los 4.500 a year and was the second highest. The decline was especially marked in the second half of the 1990s. 2000, but continued throughout the next: early in the decade 2010 todavía había más de 2.000 registrations per year.

In France, there has also been a decrease in both absolute and relative terms, and in any case the breed has never reached similar popularity levels. Nails on 250 registrations per year in the Livre Officiel des Origines Félines (LOOF), la raza se sitúa en torno al puesto 20. In the middle of the Decade of 2000, this figure was rather 350 births per year.

In Switzerland, the Siamese has also lost part of its glory. After a peak of about 150 over the years 90, el número de inscripciones anuales en la Fédération Féline Helvétique (FFH) steadily decreased, hasta el punto de que hoy en día no supera los 50 births per year. However, esto la sitúa en torno a la décima posición en las estadísticas de la organización.

in Canada, es aún más discreto. In fact, el número de gatitos registrados cada año en la Asociación Canadiense del Gato (CCA) la sitúa en torno al puesto 25 of the ranking.

In United States, the Siamese was between 10 razas más populares del país a principios de la década de 2010, según las estadísticas de registro anual de la Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA). Desde entonces ha perdido terreno y ahora se sitúa en torno al puesto 12.

Physical characteristics

Written in 1892, shortly after the breed's arrival in the West, the first standard of the Siamese lets us know what this cat looks like before breeders got involved. The Siamese tenía un cuerpo fornido, a head round and eyes blue. It also, many of the cats were cross-eyed y/o tenían nudos en la cola, what was not considered a defect at that time.

The traditional siamese has stayed quite true to this initial appearance, with its body and head round. On the other hand, décadas de cría selectiva han hecho que el Modern Siamese cat se aleje de la morfología de su ancestro y muestre formas más extremas: a body delgado, long and tubular, a head long in the shape of a triangle, ears very big and a tail very long and thin.

So, es bastante legítimo que estos dos gatos se consideren hoy en día como dos razas distintas, aunque mantengan en común sus intensos ojos azules. The work of the breeders has also made it possible to eliminate the problem of strabismus that affected both, así como la cola torcida.

The appearance of “Modern Siamese cat”

The Modern siamese it is a medium size cat, lanky (Eastern) and elegant looking. Slim and athletic, they have a very harmonious overall look. However, he is quite muscular, lo que explica que sea más pesado de lo que se podría pensar a primera vista.

Its long body has a tubular shape, with shoulders and hips of equal width. Has firm musculature and fine bone structure. The tail it is long and fine and ends in a point.

The legs they are well muscled, long, slim and graceful. Hind legs are slightly longer than front legs. Both end in small, oval feet.

The head it is medium size, long, triangular, wedge-shaped and rests on a neck long and thin. The skull and the forehead are flat or very slightly rounded. More concretely, three types of profiles are accepted: straight, slightly convex or in two planes (the plane of the forehead is prolonged with that of the nose, but without a clear break between the two).

The ears they are very big, wide at the base and prolong the triangular shape of the head.

The eyes they are moderately large, macaroons, far apart and deep blue. They can be vairones (one green eye and one blue) in individuals whose fur is particular. Some individuals have both green eyes, but they are not recognized by the norms established by the different official organisms.

The cheeks are flat and dewlap is only allowed in adult males.

The nose it's long and straight, fitting perfectly into the triangle of the face. Its tip should not be narrow. Domina unas mandíbulas de tamaño medio y un mentón firme.

The fur of the Siamese it's closed, shiny and silky. Consta únicamente de un pelaje exterior: this cat doesn't have undercoat. It also, It colourpoint, which means you have a darker mask on your face and ears, así como en las patas y la cola. This makes it look like he's ready to go to a costume party.

The rest of the body color is uniform, with a clear contrast between the body and the extremities, except for kittens. Kittens are born with slightly colored tips, that darken in the following weeks.

La combinación más común es la seal point: the tips are dark brown and the rest of the body is cream colored. The blue point también es bastante común, with a bluish-white fur and dark blue tips.
La mayoría de los organismos oficiales aceptan todos los puntos de color. It is the case of the Fédération Internationale Féline (FIFé), the International Cat Association (TICA), the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) en el Reino Unido, the Association Féline Canadienne (AFC) or the Livre Officiel des Origines Félines (LOOF) in France.

The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) is more restrictive, since it only accepts 4 combinations:
  • The seal point: cream to fawn coat, seal points (dark brown), dark brown pads;
  • The chocolat point : ivory cloak, chocolate dots, pink pads and skin of the nose;
  • The blue point: bluish white cloak, dark blue tips, slate-colored nose pads and skin;
  • The lila point: White fur, lilac tips (grey pink), pink and leather nose pads.

Selective albinism in the Siamese

Modern Siamese cat

Aunque la morfología del Modern Siamese cat has been partially modified by breeders, still basically a natural breed, that was not created by man. In particular, his dark mask on his face, the ears, las patas y la cola se debe a una anomalía genética espontánea y bastante benigna. This specificity was already visible in the first representations of this cat, dating back several centuries, and it was also found in all individuals imported in the 19th century to Europe and the United States. It is also present in the Thai cat.

It is related to the fact that all Siamese they have the albino gene. This gene encodes a heat-sensitive enzyme, that is to say, is active at low temperatures, but inactive at high temperatures. This explains that the main part of the body, the warmest, be light in color, mientras que las extremidades más frías, like ears, the face, legs and tail, They are darker.

The environment affects this thermosensitivity. When the kittens are born, tienen un color totalmente claro porque la temperatura en el útero es constante y elevada. Their limbs begin to darken within a few weeks, and show their final color when they are about a year old.

Esta característica genética también explica por qué los individuos que viven en países de clima cálido tienden a ser más ligeros que los que viven en regiones más frías. This phenomenon also occurs in other breeds colourpoint, as the Balinese cat or the Himalayan cat.

Although not all of them are necessarily recognized by all feline organizations, or are sometimes considered as simple varieties, the Siamese was the origin of several other races, developed from the years 50:

However, Things have changed since then, ya que algunas organizaciones prohíben ahora la cría de un Siamese with a representative of another race. This is the position of the Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) and the Canadian Cat Association (CCA).

On the other hand, other associations authorize marriages with some other races of the same group, in order to expand the gene pool.

Like this, the Fédération Internationale Féline (FIFé), así como la Asociación Internacional del Gato (TICA), accept matings with :

In France, el Libro Oficial de Orígenes Felinos (LOOF) authorizes people with :

Character and skills

Modern Siamese cat

Although their appearance differs, the Modern Siamese cat has a character very similar to Thai cat, aunque este último se presenta a veces como un poco más sociable.

It is a very affectionate cat, who loves to live as a family. However, it is better if the owner likes cats with a strong character. In effect, he is passionate about the person he considers his human of reference, and establish a very strong relationship with him. He is fully involved in the life of his protector, follows him in all his movements, sleep next to him, leans on his knees in quiet moments… He is totally devoted and faithful to him. So, he is quite a demanding cat: to be fully happy, the Modern Siamese cat needs a master willing to dedicate time, interest, honey and, sometimes, patience.

The downside is that they quickly become possessive and protest if they don't get the attention they expect.. Es muy seguro de sí mismo, even moody and impatient: you like your requests to be answered quickly, and if you don't get the answer you want, does not hesitate to express his point of view with meows that only cease when he gets his way.

Although it is clear that he has his favorite human, the Modern Siamese cat usually have a good relationship with other people in the family, especially if they surround you with their presence, they caress him and play with him. This is because they help meet your need for care.. However, puede ocurrir que sienta cierta antipatía por alguno de los miembros de la casa y no dude en demostrarlo, dismissively ignoring him and refusing to interact with him.

He gets along very well with children and is a very good playmate for them (and vice versa), as long as they treat you with respect. However, remember that a small child should never be left alone with a cat without adult supervision. This is valid regardless of the breed of the cat, for the safety of both parties.

Affectionate with his family, this cat is on the other hand very suspicious of strangers. If a stranger walks in “their” House, prefers to stand aside and observe the situation from above, for example from the top of your cat tree, an essential accessory.

On the other hand, his proximity to family means that he does not appreciate loneliness at all. No se recomienda para las personas que están fuera la mayor parte del día.

In addition to leaving toys to distract him, a solution to make the absences of their masters more bearable may be to make them share their home with a fellow man. In fact, cohabits easily with another cat and is glad to have an additional playmate and partner in crime. This also prevents you from finding other things to do, how to shred paper towels, what he does with some relish.

It is also usually a cat that gets along well with dogs, although this, of course, it also depends on the compatibility of your partner with the feline species. In any case, things go better if coexistence is instituted from an early age. Otherwise, it is better to ensure that the contact is made gradually.

It is much riskier to have a bird or a small rodent living next to you, since his hunting instinct can be awakened at any time. If the situation presents itself, some vigilance is required. For example, if you are out, the small animal should be kept in a place inaccessible to the cat.

Athletic and energetic, the Modern Siamese cat need to be active. It is imperative that I can run, but this does not necessarily mean that living in a flat is impossible for him, as long as the house is big enough. Especially since it is very possible to teach him to walk on a leash; you are likely to enjoy those outings, since he shares them with his master. However, lo ideal sería que una gatera le permitiera salir de casa siempre que quisiera.

In any case, you have to satisfy your urgent need to scratch. Si no hay un poste de rascado en la casa o el jardín, will not hesitate to use the furniture or curtains.

Games are essential for him too, both to exercise and to develop or maintain your skills. Playing is essential for your mental and emotional balance and, Therefore, for your well-being.

This is especially true for intelligent and curious children., as it provides them with intellectual stimulation. These traits make him an ideal candidate for anyone who wants to teach their cat tricks., such as retrieve a thrown object. Having said that, does not stop learning various things on his own. Capable of opening taps and doors, les gusta esconderse en armarios y roperos y permanecer allí incluso cuando se les llama, until they decide it's time to make their presence felt.

Last, the Modern Siamese cat is known to be a very talkative cat. As they seldom stray far from their owners, a quien no le guste tener un compañero que vocalice todo el día con voz ronca, le convendría otra raza. It is impossible to avoid this behavior: it is his way of communicating not only with his master, but also with all family members. It is his way of communicating not only with his master, but also with all family members, así que puedes esperar largas conversaciones en las que exprese su aprobación o desacuerdo. Si and Am, the talkative conjoined twins of Beauty and the tramp (1955), are perfect examples of the eloquence of this cat.

They can also be very noisy when it comes to claiming attention., sobre todo si se les deja muchas horas sin compañía o sin juguete: no wonder they do a series of shenanigans and long meowing sessions.

Health

"Modern Siamese cat"

The Modern Siamese cat it is generally a robust dog.

However, like all races, are more prone to certain ailments. In your case, is about:

  • Amyloidosis, una enfermedad hereditaria provocada por el depósito en diferentes órganos de una proteína llamada amiloide, that prevents them from working properly. Most of the time, the kidneys are the most affected, resulting in kidney failure or even diabetes. Los principales síntomas, if any, are intense thirst and frequent urge to urinate, diarrhea, loss of appetite … Drug treatment and changes in the animal's diet (especialmente para reducir la ingesta de proteínas) they can wipe out these deposits. However, existing lesions are irreversible;
  • Aortic stenosis, una enfermedad congénita que corresponde a una disminución del diámetro de la salida del ventrículo izquierdo del corazón, at the level of the aorta. Con mayor frecuencia provoca un estado de fatiga y un soplo cardíaco. There are treatments to improve the comfort of life of the animal, pero la enfermedad en sí es incurable;
  • Urolitiasis, characterized by stone formation in the bladder, the kidneys or even the ureter. Then, the cat has difficulty urinating, drink more and, sometimes, we notice the presence of blood in the urine. Las piedras se pueden quitar con cirugía;
  • El asma, also known as chronic or allergic bronchitis, causing short-term breathing difficulties and long-term lung damage. Corresponds to an allergic reaction to certain substances present in the environment, like dust mites, pollens, productos químicos o sintéticos (for example cleaning products), cigarette smoke … The affected animal suffers bouts of coughing and shortness of breath, while your breath makes a kind of hiss. However, treatments can greatly improve your quality of life, reduciendo tanto el número como la intensidad de los ataques;
  • Respiratory problems, due to the elongated and triangular shape of its head. Si es así, is less inclined to move and strain;
  • Progressive retinal atrophy, an incurable inherited disease that causes progressive deterioration of the cat's eyesight, up to total blindness. Often not detected until very late, when it is very advanced and the cat collides with everything;
  • Glaucoma, which is caused by increased pressure in the eye. This gradually degrades the optic nerve, so the affected animal gradually loses sight. Eye drop treatments are sometimes enough to remedy the problem, pero los casos más graves requieren cirugía;
  • Hereditary strabismus, reducing visual acuity and field of vision. Esta anomalía se manifiesta desde el nacimiento y es incurable, but not very disabling;
  • Mouth problems, again because of the shape of her face.

As many of the conditions the breed is prone to are inherited, it is important to go to a breeder of Siamese serious to obtain an animal that has not only grown up in a quality environment and has benefited from good socialization from its first weeks, but also have all the possibilities to enjoy -and stay- Of good health. In effect, a professional worthy of the name ensures that certain genetic tests are performed on proposed stallions, para asegurarse de que no son portadores de una enfermedad que correrían el riesgo de transmitir a sus crías. If they do it, are excluded from the breeding program. So, must be able to present the results of these tests, along with a certificate of good health from a veterinarian and a list of vaccinations already administered to the kitten, registered in the kitten's health or vaccination card.

Once the adoption is complete, the new owner is responsible for the kitten's health for the rest of its life. A visit to the vet at least once a year, and more often as the cat ages, is essential to maximize the chances of keeping you healthy. This appointment allows the professional to carry out the necessary vaccination boosters, but also, and above all, carry out a complete health check of the animal. Esto último debería permitir detectar lo antes posible cualquier problema de salud, to be able to treat it in the best possible conditions.

At the same time, It is essential to protect your cat against parasites by renewing its antiparasitic treatments throughout the year, whenever necessary, so you never stop being protected. This applies even to an animal that lives in a flat, since you are not completely safe from danger.

Cuidados y aseo

"Modern Siamese cat"

As beautiful as it is, the fur of the Modern Siamese cat, requires little maintenance, especially because it does not have undercoat. Normally, brushing once a week is enough to remove dead hair and shine the coat.

However, it is better to double the frequency during your annual molts, in spring and autumn. Although the coat is short, the molt is much more pronounced.

The weekly brushing session is also an opportunity to check his ears. Limpiar con un paño húmedo elimina la suciedad y reduce el riesgo de que se produzcan infecciones (for example, in the ears).

You should also check your eyes once a week and, if required, limpiarlos con un paño húmedo para evitar que la suciedad se acumule y se infecte.

Teeth require more frequent care. It is important to limit the accumulation of plaque, that can cause not only bad breath, but also various diseases of varying severity. Cepillar los dientes de su gato una vez a la semana con una pasta dental especial para felinos es lo mínimo, but it is best to brush more often, or even daily.

Last, it is important to keep your claws in good condition so that they are not too long, lo que podría causar molestias o incluso romperse y hacerle daño. Whether you live exclusively indoors or have access to the outdoors, should be checked once a month: if natural wear and tear is not enough, must be trimmed manually. This does not prevent you from having a scratching post at your disposal., otherwise it will fall back on the furniture, something he does without hesitation if necessary.

Whether the fur, the ears, the eyes, teeth or claws, caring for a Siamese is not particularly complex. However, es útil saber lo que hay que hacer: esto no sólo garantiza que se actúe con eficacia, but also that there is no risk of injuring or traumatizing the animal. So, it is advisable to seek advice from a veterinarian or professional groomer the first time.

This cat has a very strong relationship with its owner. For this reason, if the owner knows how to do it well, grooming sessions can become moments of tenderness and shared complicity. This is more likely if the cat is used to it from a young age.

Food

Like any cat, the Modern Siamese cat requires a diet that, both qualitatively and quantitatively, must meet your nutritional needs. To do this, it must correspond to your age, su actividad física y su estado de salud.

Industrial foods may be perfectly suitable, as long as they are of good quality. However, the same cannot be said for human food. A menos que se haya seleccionado específicamente para ese fin, does not meet a cat's nutritional needs. Peor aún, some of the foods that are potentially very popular with their owners turn out to be toxic to the little feline. So, it is a service for him not to offer him bits on the table, nor give him the leftovers or let him put his little head in the garbage can.

In any case, but the Siamese be very energetic and tend to eat a little more than a cat of another breed, He is not one of those who gorge himself. Como la mayoría de los gatos, the Siamese they self-regulate, so it is possible to make food available at all times without fear of overeating.

Last, like any cat, you must have fresh water at all times.

For sale "Modern Siamese cat"
