Today, let's take a look at the Siamese breed. The reason I chose this breed is because they are one of the first adopted, but also the first to be brought back! Why is this? That's because these pretty faces are typically "in your face".
I can relate to this since my Sammy has many Siamese qualities. His body build, the shape of his head, and his incessant talking are all Siamese traits. Siamese are high maintenance in behavior because they get involved in everything you do! However, they are low maintenance as far as grooming due to their short, sleek hair.
Siamese have been one of the most popular cat breeds in America ever since they got a lot of publicity, good and bad, with leading roles in two hit 1950s movies, "Lady and the Tramp" and "Bell, Book and Candle." The breed originated in Thailand (formerly Siam).
Here are stories about two special rescue cats that will warm your heart. The first is about Blaze, a rescue who lost his eyes at a very young age. Even though he has special needs, his "mommy" gave him a forever home.

The second story is about Pippa, a rescue cat, who appears to have the special ability to detect when her eight-year-old owner is about to suffer a hypoglycemic episode due to her diabetes.
