  5. I love saimese cats omg i am crying now …. and i loooooooove them sooo much ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  6. I had the privilege of being owned by two Siamese; very vocal, intelligent and so different – Daniel was like a clown cat, trying to get you to laugh and Sam was a studious type – such beautiful boys they were. Lost Daniel in 2001 and Sam in 2009.

  7. I have two male Siamese. They are almost a year old and do not talk. They don't like to be held and do not sit in my lap. They do follow me around the house. They will sleep in my bed just out of arms reach. They are smart.

  8. I have a Siamese named sapphire she is around 3 years old and she is really lazy. She is sometimes active but that's only when she thinks she is a racecar. I got her from a pet smart before she was even one yr old and have had her ever since. The only thing I knew about her past before I got her was that she was abandoned at 6 weeks old ( or months its been awhile). She is extremely affectionate but mostly to me and my mum. Since I dont live with my mom at the moment she doesn't really like anyone else touching her. She allows them too but she always gives me this look like "save me mum". She is spoiled and she knows it. She always gets her way when and how she wants it. Some of her favorite spots to hang out are in my bed, in the window, in one of her beds, or in the dirt. She is talkative but not very talkative. She tells me when she wants out of my room by stretching on the door or attacking a bag. She knows one trick so far and that is how to sit. When I first told my foster parents I taught her how to do that they were like u can't teach a cat how to sit. So I went got my cat and the treats and was like sapphire sit and ofc she sat cuz she loves those treats. They both looked at me in shock like she actually did it. My cat also likes dog bones its very weird. She also has really bad separation anxiety. For example when I went to camp for 5 days when I got back my mum told me that she barely ate or drank and spent most of her time in ball on my bed. When I first got her I promised myself and her that I would be her first and last owner. That promise is still being upheld to this day. I'm so happy to have a best friend like her and I wouldn't give her up for the world.

  9. I have an apple headed Siamese. His name is George. He's a cream point. He's also an asshole towards my other two cats (both moggies), Mike Modano (no, I did not name him. My younger brother did. Yes, he's named after an ice hockey player) and Dixie Belle (Mike's mother).

  10. I’m a twin and might be getting a Siamese, do they only like one person or do like play around with more than one person ?

  11. My beautiful 12 year old Siamese cat is precious. Yes she is a jerk but she loves her mommy who always tells her how pretty she is

  12. My cat is a white siamese and she is a trip. She's very loving to me. She tolerates others but she does not like other cats at all lol. One day she was howling at another white cat that looked just like her out the window. But any other cats she hisses. She only talks when she wants something. All she does is sleep mostly and eat. She likes affection sometimes and that's it. You barely know she is there.

  13.

  15. i have 2 cats a Siamese and a Ginger both boys the Siamese rarely talks Bu that Ginger he is vocal EVERYDAY about everything he does. i always tell ppl the Siamese just showed up in my neighborhood then my porch then came inside and stayed he picked me then he picked the Ginger from a neighbor who had several Cat n Kittens he would not allow any cats in his yard area without a fight or hissing or growling then one day he let this little Ginger Kitten eat his food come inside etc and i thought he picked a girlfriend nope he picked a best friend and as luck turns out the ppl owned him decided to move and did not want him so he became ours.

  16. R.I.P. Thorn Putty Bear 2011 to 2015. Teddy bear like seal point blue-eyed but he thought he was a sneaky ninja, very feisty booger.

  17. I have a Siamese cat named Blue. He's so freaking talkative and lovable!! He sheds a lot and loves cuddling his two cat brothers when they sleep at night. I absolutely love him so much. ❤

  18. Due to Walt Disney movies, people think Siamese are mean, that is so false, they are so loving and sweet. So children see these animated movies and from a young age think Siamese a bad. NOT.

  19. I got a pretty chocolate point long hair named Luna. She only talks when it's time to eat or when you pick her up. She's fiesty with other cats, but is such a sweetheart with me and my Mom. She's sleeping on my stomach right now ?
    Oh did I mention she's pretty?

  20. Unbelievably stunning cats, very intelligent!!! And yes, the Siamese is VERY vocal to it's family… They will talk all day long. Siamese and Bombay's are the most gorgeous cats I've ever had together in my family

  21. I have four siemiesi one black and white cat and they are playful and and all of my cats have blue eyes if i could send a video i would

  22. Please, no, no, no, these are Balinese cats. They are mixed with Siamese and a regular American cat. These Balinese cats were needed in 1942.

  23. Some of the cats in the video are Birman, not Siamese . I've just adopted a 6 months old Birman again after my sweet first Birman died 2 weeks ago from cancer. I can tell they are one of the most intelligent and curious breeds, very attached to their owner and quite distant to the others around. If they recognize you as their owner, then it's a love story for life. Mine was following me everywhere. We had our rituals every day, like drinking water from my hand while showering, going to bed together and she was sleeping next to me with her head on my arm. Every time she thought there is a fight between someone in the family, she was right there, biting softly the leg of the person she thought was faulty. And she knew when me or my husband were coming from before we got into the elevator. She was there at the door. Amazing birman.
