Some believe the Siamese cat can be traced back to ancient Egypt (due to its similarities with the Egyptian cat goddess, Bast). However, history indicates that Siamese cats were adored pets in Siam, Thailand (hence their name) as far back as the 1600s.

Even there they were linked to spiritualism and were thought to be spirit guardians, some believed that the souls of deceased owners would inhibit their cat after death. Siamese cats have very striking eyes – a dazzling blue color and can be loyal pets (if they like you), in which case you are honored as they are a little highly strung.
