Short description

The Siamese cat is very demanding and headstrong, therefore, only recommended for experienced cat owners. She loves to roam and play, but also needs cuddles to feel comfortabel. She needs a lot of space and would like to have other feline room mates. Children have to accept her boundaries. Moreover, she is very communicative.

This information is indicative and adheres to the breed standard. Each animal is an individual and has a personal character, as well as its own needs. Thus, a breed is not a guarantee of certain behaviors, etc.
