Different Types of Siamese Cats

Enjoy viewing some different types of Siamese cats in this slideshow.

The Siamese has really changed looks over the last few decades. Once a rather cobby, apple-headed feline, show breeders have bred toward long, elegant lines and wedge-shaped heads. These cats also come in colors that are variations of the traditional pointed color pattern.

Wedgie

Wedgie

The show-type Siamese has a distinctly triangular or wedge-shaped face. Here, the long lines of the wedgie are clearly evident.

Applehead

In contrast, the traditional applehead Siamese is stockier with a rounder face.
