Royal Cat Of Siam
Small, broad across and between the eyes, tapering upwards
and somewhat narrow between the ears: forehead flat and
receding, nose long, and somewhat broad, cheeks narrowing
towards the mouth, lips full and rounded, ears rather large
and wide at base, with very little hair inside.
Very short, and somewhat woolly, yet soft and silky to the
touch, and glossy, with much lustre on the face, legs, and
The ground or body colour to be of an even tint, slightly
darker on the back, but not in any way clouded or patched
with any darker colour; light rich dun is the preferable
colour, but a light fawn, light silver-gray, or light orange
is allowable; deeper and richer browns, almost chocolate, are
admissible if even and not clouded, but the first is the true
type, the last merely a variety of much beauty and
excellence; but the dun and light tints take precedence.
Ears black, the colour not extending beyond them, but ending
in a clear and well-defined outline; around the eyes, and all
the lower part of the head, black; legs and tail black, the
colour not extending into or staining the body, but having a
clear line of demarkation.
Rather of almond shape, slanting towards the nose, full and
of a very beautiful blue opalesque colour, luminous and of a
reddish tint in the dusk of evening or by artificial light.
Short by comparison with the English cat, thin throughout, a
little thicker towards the base, without any break or kink.
SIZE AND FORM 10
Rather small, lithe, elegant in outline, and graceful, narrow
and somewhat long; legs thin and a little short than
otherwise; feet long, not so round as the ordinary cat; neck
long and small.
In full health, not too fat, hair smooth, clear, bright, full
of lustre, lying close to the body, which should be hard and
firm in the muscles.
