An outgoing breed with a long history, Thai royalty kept Siamese for generations and, when a member of the family died, their cat moved to the temple where they were buried and spent the rest of its life in luxury among monks and priests.

An outgoing, social breed, expect your Siamese to communicate with everyone in the home and be involved in everything you’re doing.
