Siamese Cat History
The Siamese cat originated from Thailand, formerly known as Siam, where this sophisticated breed was held in such high regard that only members of the royal family were permitted to own them. In 1884, as he was leaving, the British Consul, General Gould, was given a Siamese by the king as a farewell gift. It is believed that the offspring of this cat were then exhibited by General Gould’s sister at the 17th Crystal Palace Show in 1885. Since then the Siamese cat has become a much sought after breed.
