Siamese cats have small, sleek heads, large ears, and narrow bodies and tails. They have blue eyes and "points" of color on ears, feet, muzzle, and tail. Siamese males can reach 15 pounds, while females are usually 8 to 12 pounds.
These cats are renowned for their physical prowess; they are extremely agile and lean, and enjoy a high amount of activity.
For as much as they are known for their high activity levels, Siamese cats are known for their vocal yowls and incessant talking. If you are looking for a pet that doesn't require much attention, the Siamese is not for you; these cats crave human attention and interaction. They also don't like to be alone, so if you are prone to travel or long days at the office, consider getting two of the breed so they can keep each other company.
