Siamese cats from time to time also produced long-haired kittens, and these have been developed in the Balinese.

Over the years, the Siamese has progressively become more Boning and lengthened, with a more pronounced wedge-shaped head, especially in North America. Some breeders, However, they preserved the oldest type, It has a strong complexion and a head round or "Apple". In the color, the more conservative records only recognize black tips (called seal), chocolate, Blue and lilac; the traditional Oriental colours, red, cream, as well as tips turtle and striped accepted as Siamese twins in Europe, but they are called short tips of color in North America. Whatever their colors and names, all these cats share the typical Siamese Extrovert temperament, playful, talkative, you want attention and company. It is not a lonely cat, but you need an attentive owner or another feline company, and as the two.
