One of the most notable features of Siamese cats is their pointed coat pattern. This pattern is caused by a genetic mutation that results in a lack of pigmentation in certain areas of the fur, leaving the fur on the face, ears, paws, and tail a light color, while the rest of the body remains dark. This unique coat pattern sets Siamese cats apart from other breeds.
In addition to their pointed coat pattern, Siamese cats are also known for their bright blue eyes and slender, athletic build. They are incredibly active and playful, and are known to be very affectionate with their owners. They are also known to be very vocal, and will often "talk" to their owners with a variety of meows and other vocalizations.
