Siamese kittens are born white and develop their color as they mature. The
Siamese cat breed is one of the most common and oldest of cat breeds. Known for their blue eyes, large
pointed ears, pointed coat pattern (light body color with face, tail, ears and paws a darker color), short coats,
and slim build, Siamese cats are also affectionate, social, playful, intelligent, loyal and vocally
inclined. The Siamese's short coat requires little grooming while the long-haired version is actually
considered another breed - the Balinese. Common Siamese health problems include tooth decay as well as liver
and heart disease. Following are several videos of Siamese kittens.
