Siamese and Oriental

ABOUT SIAMESE AND ORIENTAL CATS

All are the same type- the difference is in the coat and eye colour and the length of the coat.

These breeds can all be intermated, but it is recommended by me that the long and shorthair varieties are not mixed as this can create a poor coat length, neither one, nor the other - a variant.

The Siamese Type cat loves people, is talkative, perhaps a little bossy, inquisitive and active - a family member who cannot be ignored!

There is no doubt, however, that the Siamese has the loudest voice of all and my Stud cat, Tippitaka, would be amongst the best.

Below is Mayteako Tippitaka, a Seal Tabby Point Siamese.

The head forms an equilateral triangle across the top of head and down to the chin (the wedge).  The big ears continue the line of the triangle, and the ‘oriental’ eyes slant slightly downwards towards the nose.  A squint is a judging fault.  The profile is straight from forehead to nose tip, the chin is in line with the end of the nose.

The body is tubular, with shoulder and hips continuing the sleek straight lines.  The legs are slim and elegant in proportion to the body, paws are small and oval.  The tail is long and whippy – and should not have a kink at the end.  

The coat is very short, smooth and shiny. 

The gene peculiar to the Siamese and Balinese restricts the colour to its points – head, ears, legs and paws and tail – and gives the cat its exquisite deep blue eyes.  The main point colours are Seal (Black), Blue, Chocolate, Lilac, Red and Cream.  They come with Tabby and Tortie points and with a Silver or Golden colour next to the body. There are now also spotted point Siamese.

The Balinese comes in the same colours as the Siamese, with the blue eyes, but has a much longer coat.  

The Balinese coat is fine and silky and contoured to the body, shorter on the shoulders, but with distinctive breeches (longer hair on the legs), and an attractively plumed tail.

ORIENTAL

The head forms an equilateral triangle across the top of head and down to the chin.  The big ears continue the line of the triangle, and the ‘oriental’ eyes slant slightly downwards towards the nose.  A squint is a judging fault.  The profile is straight from forehead to nose tip.

The body is tubular, with shoulder and hips continuing the sleek straight lines.  The legs are slim and elegant in proportion to the body, paws are small and oval.  The tail is long and whippy – and should not have a kink at the end.  

The coat is very short, smooth and shiny. 

The Oriental comes in the same shades as the Siamese, but is self coloured (same colour all over).  The main colours are Ebony (Black), Blue, Chocolate, Lilac, Red and Cream – plain or Tabby and Tortie patterns and also with a Silver or Golden colour next to the body.  Their eyes are a vivid green. There are also bicolour Oriental and Javanese.

JAVANESE

The Javanese comes in the same colours as the Oriental, with the green eyes, but has a much longer coat.  

The Javanese coat is fine and silky and contoured to the body, shorter on the shoulders, but with distinctive breeches (longer hair on the legs), and an attractively plumed tail. 

 

FOREIGN WHITE

The Foreign White (shorthair and semi longhair) is the same body as the Siamese cat –very long and slim.

The head forms an equilateral triangle across the top of head and down to the chin.  The big ears continue the line of the triangle, and the ‘oriental’ eyes slant slightly downwards towards the nose.  A squint is a judging fault.  The profile is straight from forehead to nose tip.

The body is tubular, with shoulder and hips continuing the sleek straight lines.  The legs are slim and elegant in proportion to the body, paws are small and oval.  The tail is long and whippy – and should not have a kink at the end.  

The coat is very short, smooth and shiny.  It is pure, glistening white, untinged in any way.  The eyes are a deep vivid blue. Kittens may have a coloured cap or a few coloured hairs on the head which go when they reach maturity.
