In '65 we got a seal point male kitten. He proved to be a full fledged member of our family. One night we discovered siamese have the ability to speak. My wife promptly trained him to say "Manna" when he wanted to eat. He'd sit down beside her tap her gently on the shin, look into her face and ask "Manna? Manna?" and if she'd ignore him he'd stand and literally slug her and demand "MANNA!!". He did this in the presence of an overnight guest one day and nearly freaked her out. What fun! One time we (our four children, Ella, me, and Boots) were all sitting on chairs around a table, making a tape to send to family. I spoke into the mike 1st, and said, "And now here's Ella" passing the mike to her, and thus it went around the table. When our youngest finished, he said, "And now here's Boots", holding the mike in front of him. Boots, promptly leaned into the mike and said "Meow" right on clue!
He's but a memory now. How we loved him.

This looks like my Chez Chat's Lady Kate. She showed for about a year and did well. I lost her to Renal Failure in 2001, but she will always be in my heart.

just been looking at your beautifull siamese cat pictures.
We recently lost our beloved friend Jemima to leukemia back in feburary 2007 the day after her sixth birthday, it still hurts to this day the lost we have had to carry around with us. Jemima was a lilca colour, we also had another siamese cat called Jade she also was a lilac colour she died 2 years ago from a blood clot. We recently went up to doncaster to see where there ashes where scattered, very moving and touched our hearts, it's like losing a child but they were my children in our eyes.
We have now got another little girl called Jezabell she's a seal point 2 in december 2007, beautifull and very loving, i thought i'd share this with you all because siamese cats are the best, nothing compares what so ever.
To my girls above - cats leave paw prints on your HEART
R.I.P. Jemima and Jade love always your mums

I too love reading stories about others' Siameses. I grew up with Siameses and just recently lost our beloved blue point male, Ling Ling, at age 15. He was as dear to me as if he were my own child. He was so very loving, tender hearted and immensely intelligent. I always thought of him as a human inside a cat's body. I miss him beyond words, and even though it's been nearly 8 months since his passing, it's not any easier. I'm getting teary-eyed just typing this. Until recently, it has been hard to even think about getting another Siamese kitten because he is so irreplaceable. But my heart is yearning for another one of these extraordinary creatures. All the best to everyone here who appreciates and loves these beautiful cats!

I love Siamese also I have had an assortment.
From half Siamese to purebreds. My last was a
Sealpoint male nuetered. H ewas the love of my life.
He greeted me when I came home from work, had a
happy meow smile the day I ret'd. H ewas very devoted.
I lost him in Feb. of this year at 11 1/2 yrs.
with hyper-thyroidism. I was just beside myself,
I went looking for another Siamese. None will
take his place, he use to go with me to get hay
for my horse, sat in his carrier box looking
around klike a human. Was master of my home over the
other cats. I did find another Siamese/Ragamuffin
who basically has A.J.'s persona. An also devoted
cat. Thank you for letting me share my story
about A.J., he is buried on a friend's ranch
under an apple tree.

We got the most delightful kitten in June from your cattery. She is loving and playfu. Her purr is loud and often. She is very vocal and calls to us when we come home. She is curious to a fault and loves to play with her mouse, tiger from Wild Animal Park, buttons and paper.
Right now she is on my lap asleap.

I am so happy I found this site. I am in mourning for my darling Skippy. I saved I got hom from the humane society last year, a siamese mix who had been abused (how can you abuse such a beautiful creature)? He hid under the spare room bed for a week, each day I would spend several hours with him -- coaxing him out, brushing him, and talking to him. Then one day, he came out and was SO much part of this family. I used to call him the love of my life, and I se other comments say the same thing. It is hard to describe the love I felt. In January, my two grow sons came to visit. Skip usually disappeared under a bed somewhere when ever guests came round, so it was not strange to not see him on the day they arrived -- so much exitetment filled the house. My son, and I deciede to go to the store. My poor scared skip had some how got into the garage ( he was an indoor cat) and got under the car, into the engine. I can't go on, it breaks my heart. He was only 1 year old. I have visited shelters but I just come out in tears. I just want Skip back. Thankyou for letting me share, it is nice to know there are others out there who have gone through the same thing.

I lost the love of my life (a say twice in 2.5 years) the reason I say this is.After the loss of my dear husband in 2007, the emptiness in heart was unbearring so after 5mths,I got my first Lynx Point Siamese. We bonded immediatly. He was beautiful, smart (he spoke constantly to me), and his loving nature began to heel my heart. He was my constant companion. He followed me everywhere and when I left the house, he waited to greet me immediatly with a kiss. When it was time for bed, he would jump to my side tuck his head into my underarm and kneed until we feel asleep. If I got up , so did he. He and his love was the greatest gift god had blessed me with other than the birth of my daughter. On February 11th, 2010 he left us to Rainbows Bridge (Animal Heaven). My heart aches every moment with unbearable grief. Everyone loved him, but none as I do and will forever. One day we will be rejoined and my spirit will have completeness. I have been on a desperate search to find another to love and nurture in his memory To My Beloved Tristian "Your Memory Will Live On Forever and Your Paws Have Made an Imprint On Our Hearts" WE LOVE YOU TRISTIAN!!!!!LOVE, LMF and AMF

After growing up with Siamese Cats; as my mother was a breeder at the time, it was brainwashed childhood from the beginning, nothing compares to a Siamese Cat. After finishing the breeding phase our last Siamese were desexed and both lived to 17 years of age. Not being able to cope without the joys of a cat, a little piece of heaven walked straight into my life. A tiny kitten was brought into the vet surgery after being found partially mauled by two dogs. The kitten was in such bad shape as they vets were unable to identify that it was in fact at kitten. Covered in mud, and barely breathing the tiny thing was kept in intensive care for two solid weeks until I brought him home. At this stage we clarified him as a Seal Point male Siamese. After having months of episodes with respiratory issues and so on, he started to improve. I still remain that once an animal has been rescued they give you their full and undivided love. I called him William.
From the rough beginnings and the view of him looking very average for the rest of his life, I was astonished to see what he grew into. The most picturesque animal, with the darkest blue of tones for eye colour. He was without a doubt my soul mate and I still struggle with his departure. He died just before his guessed second birthday of snake bite. I was literally 2 hours late coming home from a horse event and found him waiting at the door to come inside as per usual. The attack must of happened only shortly before I arrived home as he seemed normal, through-out the night I became away that he didn't move when I rolled over in bed, at this stage he was paralysed and his body had gone through the process to an unrecovered state. I rushed him to the vets, he had two entire viles for snake bit, but with his ongoing respiratory issues and his overeasy personality of playing with things, it was assumed he must have been bitten quite a few times.
It was one of the hardest days of my life. I consider William my soul mate and there will be no other like him.
I do suggest to others that if you lose an animal so precious that you can't see yourself ever getting another one, then re consider. My inital view was to go without but although no cat will ever be the same as that 'soul mate' they will still give you so much pleasure in the long term. I now have a lilac Applehead Siamese female and she is a wonderful companion after my inital resentment of her not being 'William', I would not wish a day without her now.
Memories are forever and each friend we have in life is there to teach us something that we could not see before. Enjoy ever day as it is the last and your life will be so much more enriched. Thankyou.
