Hi, I'm new to this forum. I'm a cat lover and devotee of a particular breed, the Siamese. Two of my beloved Siamese, a tortie point aged sixteen years and a seal point girl who I grew up with since age eleven, have passed on in the last year and a half. They are survived by two other Siamese, a Chocolate point boy and a Lilac point girl. My mom, who is also a cat lover, has a seal point boy rescued from a shelter and a seal point girl. My favorite aspect of the Siamese personality is how talkative and affectionate they are. My cats always let me know when they need attention!

Welcome! I am also partial to the siamese.. I have a seal point mix male and a new addition who just arrived today a chocolate point (could be seal point, not good at identifying points when the color is so alike) kitty! We like pictures here so feel free to post some!

Welcome! I too love appleheads! I recently lost a seal point at 18 and a blue point at 16. I have two new traditional/appleahead babies -- a chocolate girl and a lilac boy. Like you, I love how they talk. I especially love when they both talk at once -- it sounds like they're singing to me.

Ive never heard of a torti point Siamese! I love applehead siamese cats. My first cat as a child was a seal point applehead siamese named Ming. He started me on the love of cats. Welcome to the forum. You will love it here.

Wouldn't it be funny if you were neighbors when you were younger? I mean, what are the odds of cooncatbob having a neighbor who had siamese cat named Ming...just like Mitts & Tess' childhood cat??

Doubtful, this was an elderly couple with grown children.
It was in Concord, CA.
If I recall Ming was quite large and quite a fighter, used to get into it with our 2 Tomcats Hungry and Blackie, this was back in the days when nobody fixed their cats and they were all allowed to roam and breed.
I remember canvasing the neighborhood with my sister trying to give away kittens.
Actually oriental names for Siamese cats is probably pretty common.

Welcome! Another siamese lover here. I have mixed pointed kitties with very classic siamese personalities and they are so much fun.

I see from your picture that you have a lynx point...they are gorgeous! I've never had one but they are very intrepid looking.

Yeah I didn't even know what a lynx-point was when I adopted Apollo, and then fell in love with them so much that when we went to get a second cat, we adopted another lynx-point! ;)
Athena's points are fainter (and she's got tortie genes in her too).

There's a time when they don't want/demand attention?

I absolutely love Siamese, especially appleheads! I love all cats, but it's the oriental ones that I go crazy about. I love their personalities and their intelligence.

What I meant is they are extremely talkative--not just talkative, but loud talkers, which is my favorite aspect of the Siamese breed
