Siamese, Please!

Hey there.  Today is going to be part educational, part comparison.  Today, we are going to be learning about Siamese cats.  We are also going to be learning about Sagwa, TV’s own Siamese cat.  So let’s get started.

 

First you should know that Siamese cats were a type of species that appeared in a country called Siam, now known as Thailand.  Meanwhile, this is something to compare against.  In the TV show Sagwa, Sagwa lives in China. How’d that happen?  I don’t know, but maybe you do.

 

Siamese cats are extremely vocal, which means they meow a lot.  Their voices are loud and low.  In Sagwa, all the Siamese cats speak English, but only to each other, not to the royal family they belong to.  Both fictional and real Siamese cats are extremely friendly.  Both groups of Siamese cats also cannot camouflage themselves, despite their amazing color.

 

FUN FACTS:

 

  1. The cat in the popular newspaper comic strip “Get Fuzzy” is a Siamese.
  2. Two Siamese cats belonged in the White House because their owners had Presidential fathers.
  3. The popular book character “Skippyjon Jones” is a Siamese cat.  
  4. A ton of different breeds have derived from the Siamese cat.

We’re going to be having a quick blog contest.  Next entry we will announce the winner:

Can you relate cats to this picture?

 

See you next time, with an entry about my trip to Massachusetts!

    Ah Miles! Now you have touched on a subject near and dear to my heart! I’ve had Siamese cats just about my entire life! Did you know that Siamese cats have “points?” That’s what the darker colors on their ears, nose, legs and tail are called. In my life I’ve had a blue point, 2 seal points and a Lynx point cat. If you click on this web address and scroll down you can see a picture of my beloved cat Hildegard. She was a seal point. http://home.triad.rr.com/crtclb3185/pets.htm

    I’ll try to find a good picture of my cat Zinka– she was a Lynx point and was also very beautiful, but rather shy (for a Meezer!) My latest Siamese cat is a Seal point named Magnolia. She is a tiny cat, but her personality is as big as you can imagine!

    Great topic!

    Oh, I forgot to enter the contest– the spinx has the body of a lion, which any Siamese cat will tell you is just a larger cat that WISHES it could be a Siamese cat!

    crt, you are off track. Where is the Sphinx? But you are right about the lion body.

    Hmmm…. Let’s see, the spinx is in Egypt and the early Egyptians worshiped cats as gods, if memory serves! And Siamese cats CERTAINLY feel they should be worshiped at all times!

    Am I getting warmer?

    Your friend,

    Hi, Miles. What a good blog entry – I like how you compare and contrast cats in several different countries and cultures. I didn’t know about Sagwa, so thank you for writing about it!

    Okay I have to admit that I have not checked in for a while.
    At one time Grandma and I had 2 Siamese cats; they were sisters.
    So how amazing that you have touched on this subject.
    We all await your Massachusetts entry.
    Love, Grandpa in the DC area.
    P.S. I look forward to seeing you Saturday night.
