    Siamese is a shorthair cat breed that is famous for its brilliance and elegance. It originates from Siam, Thailand, where it is rumored to have kept royals company. It came to Britain in late nineteenth century and enchanted westerners with its sleek design and elegance. Siamese soon became popular in Europe and appeared in United States in early twentieth century. Initially they were seen predominantly in seal-point color but with time blue, lilac and chocolate also gained acceptance as markings' colors. Today many other points' variations including red, cinnamon, cream, fawn, lynx and tortie occur even though they are not universally accepted. Also the body structure varies, with the modern 'show class' Siamese being a more finely built animal than the 'traditional' Siamese which is robust and muscular.
