One way to think about me might be as Siamese Lite. I have the same personality as my cousin—right down to the ongoing chatter—but my voice and my coat are softer. I demand affection and attention; be prepared to converse with me. I love to play games but always carry myself with an air of dignity befitting my elegant appearance.

Aside from having longer hair, I look just like a Siamese cat with a sleek, muscular body and entrancing blue, almond-shaped eyes. My coat is fine and silky and may be seal, blue, chocolate, or lilac. Weekly brushing will control my limited shedding.

Weighing 5 to 10 pounds, I’m medium-sized and quite agile. I am susceptible to a number of health problems, including asthma, amyloidosis (liver problems), lymphoma, congenital heart defects, neurological disorders, and eye problems. With responsible care I’ll be offering love and a running commentary for 9 to 15 years.
