Seal Point Kittens

History of the Siamese Seal Point

The Siamese is one of the first distinctly recognised breeds
of Oriental cat in the world. Like many breeds of animals, the exact origin of the Siamese is unknown, but it is believed to
be from Southeast Asia, and is said to be a descendant from
the sacred temple cats of Siam (now known as Thailand).

These original cats were closely guarded in order to keep
the breed pure. So highly was the Siamese cat regarded that their ownership is said to have been restricted to only members of the Royal family.

The breed was first seen outside their Asian home in 1884, when the British Counsul-General in Bangkok, brought a breeding pair of Siamese cats, Pho and Mia, back to Britain
as a gift for his sister, Lilian Jane Veley (who went on to be
co-founder of the Siamese Cat Club in Britain in 1901). Just one year later, three kittens were produced by Pho and Mia.
