Historic Siamese Cats
There is no shortage of authors when it comes to the history of the Siamese cat. There is a blending of fact and fantasy in their stories. The internet now brings a collection of information to us at the click of our mouse. Eeek, with that click we begin to see one author after another collecting, rephrasing and melding accurate and inaccurate information to fit their websites needs. Internet legends are born... It's interesting to watch the progression of a error as it is copied and repeated by other websites.
From years of collecting vintage ephemera related to the Siamese breed we bring to you our collection of Siamese cat history. We have chosen not to draw conclusions but to give you a glimpse of the real thing, word for word, from the news of their day. We hope you enjoy your scroll through the years with old time Siamese breeders as your guide.
