    Hehe aye they are what is known now as the "traditional Siamese" differing from the "modern" species as they are generally more robust and with shorter ears. The modern Siamese is the very thin cat everybody recognised today as a Siamese.

    Here is a little passage I found here http://www.siamesekittens.com/hist1.html

    Anyone in the market for a Siamese kitten will often have a similar experience. You want a Siamese just like the lovely one you had as a child, or who just passed away at a ripe old age. You go to local breeders, you look in magazines, you attend cats shows, but what you most often find is a cat that looks quite different from the large robust cat you remember. By comparison to the cat you remember, the modern version of the Siamese is emaciated, with large bat-like ears, an elongated head and pencil thin legs. You might ask yourself, "Is this really a Siamese?"

    The short answer is 'yes', but this is certainly not the same type as you remember. Chances are what you recall is a large robust cat with a round head, normal looking ears, and lovely blue eyes. What you remember is now called a 'Traditional Siamese, or 'applehead' Siamese, while the one that dominates the show ring now is known as the Modern Siamese.

    If you wonder out loud about what happened, different breeders may give you very different explanations, but the truth is clearly available in any history book.
    1986 to Present:

    By 1986 there were no traditional or 'applehead' Siamese being shown and the modern Siamese was so entrenched that many modern breeders were actually unaware of the breed's history and held the opinion that the Siamese had always looked like the modern version, and that traditional Siamese were cats of inherently inferior quality.

    Because the Traditional Siamese breeders could not win in the show ring, many had stopped breeding, switched to a different breed, or had stopped registering or keeping records on the Siamese they had been breeding. It was this situation that prompted the formation of cat organizations that recognized the traditional Siamese and sponsored shows where traditional breeds could compete for prizes just as in the shows that recognized only the modern version of the same breeds.

    Today, a growing number of organizations recognize the traditional Siamese, and other traditional breeds, as a new appreciation develops for the health and longevity of the original bloodlines.

    so basically I prefer the old Siamese race which is slowly dieing out just like I prefer my own Nordic race which is also dieing out 1: , although I don’t actually have any racial preferences on cats generally, just when it comes to the thin ugly modern one, and what I think is a much lovelier Siamese, the traditional breed :animal-sm

    Now I'm not a cat person, but there is one kind of cat that I simply adore. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you, The Lynx!





    A cool thing about these is that from time to time, they roam around in the forrest in which I live... They don't hurt people though.

    If I awoke to find that thing sleeping and purring on the end of my bed, I would have goat droppings for trousers! : Instead of cat foods, I assume I could feed it emigrants? :suomut:
