    Do You Love Applehead Siamese Cats?

    Applehead Siamese, and as the name would suggest, these beautiful cats have rounder, more 'apple shaped' faces than the other variations.Breeding with other cat breeds such as classic short hair breeds, is what created the applehead.

    I haven't come across any siamese cats myself, but this one is beautiful! I love round headed cats to begin with.

    What a beautiful kitty in the photo!

    I love Applehead Siamese too, the more "traditional" version of the breed. (Actually, I love all Siamese cats, and in fact, all cats.)

    I love cats Some meezers have the more triangular, oriental-shaped head. But I like the apple head Siamese too! I like Siamese cats because they are elegant, smart and talkative! PT has lots of beautiful Siamese kitties. Catmandu's "Siamese six pack" comes to my mind.

    My Ming was an Applehead. A more beautiful cat than an Applehead is hard to come by. Some day, I will have another. But, right now, my heart is full with my all-white Kimba and my calico girl, Cali.

    I do love a nice applehead meezer. I'm not so partial to the wedge-heads myself, though I can see the appeal.

    We feel the same. We were adopted by our first meezers a few years ago. Willy and Willow were/are Siamese and Himmy mixes. The only thing "different" about them from what I've read about Siamese is that they aren't talkers. At 8 years old. Willow just now started meowing once in a while. Sadly, we lost Willy at 6 due to kidney disease. Unfortunately, it is prevalent in Persian/Meezer/Himmy mixes. We ordered a kit from UC Davis and took a saliva swab of Willy and Willow. Willy carried the gene for polycystic kidney disease. Luckily, Willow does not.
    Ask your vet about microchipping. ~ It could have saved Kuhio's life. And it cost Halo hers. Ask your vet about Polycystic kidney disease ~~ Rest in peace Willy

    Well that look is no longer the breed standard. So anyone still breeding them with that look would be doing so ONLY to make money and not someone you should be buying a cat from. Reputable breeders breed cats as close as possible to the standard for that breed, for the love of the breed and to better the breed - not to make money. In fact, most operate at a loss as the only have one or two litters a year and then put all their money made selling kittens back into showing their cats, caring for them, vet bills, etc.

    There is a new breed called the "Thai" that looks more like the original Siamese cat. But instead of getting either of these breeds why not just go to a shelter and adopt a cat with pointed markings? Pointed markings can appear in domestics as well - there's MILLIONS of them.

    If we dislike the "breed standard" we have the right to have the Siamese that we want. I know many Applehead Siamese cats and they are far hardier than the inbred breed standard Siamese. If you like wedgies, go for it! Buy from someone who breeds them. But don't discredit the reputation of breeders who are trying to keep the original Siamese standard going. These are good people.

    Some people that own high value pedigree pets choose to keep them as indoor-only pets out of concern for their welfare, but there is no reason why the Siamese cat cannot go outside like any other cat. The Siamese is perfectly streetwise, adaptive and intelligent enough to cope with the outside world, and many Siamese cats are also competent hunters!
