Precious cats: Photography and Video about Luna the Siamese cat, quotes and description

There are few things in life more heartwarming 
than to be welcomed by a cat. 
~Tay Hohoff


Luna fully enjoyed the modelling under wintry late afternoon sun :)) 
I think we should imitate her as often as possible.
Enjoy the video




If there is one spot of sun spilling onto the floor, 
a cat will find it and soak it up. 
~J.A. McIntosh



A cat can be trusted to purr when she is pleased, 
which is more than can be said for human beings. 
~William Ralph Inge


The Siamese cat (Thai: วิเชียรมาศ, ) Wichianmat, meaning "moon diamond") is one of the first distinctly recognized breeds of Oriental cat.
One of several breeds native to Thailand (formerly known as Siam), the Siamese cat became one of the most popular breeds in Europe and North America in the 20th century. The modern Siamese is characterized by blue almond-shaped eyes, a triangular head shape, large ears, an elongated, slender, and muscular body, and point coloration. TICA describes the breed as social, intelligent, and playful into adulthood, often enjoying a game of fetch.

Siamese tend to seek human interaction and also like companionship from other cats. The Oriental cat was developed in order to expand the range of coat patterns, while the Thai preserves a moderate head and body type.
Siamese are usually very affectionate and intelligent cats, renowned for their social nature. Many enjoy being with people and are sometimes described as "extroverts". Often they bond strongly to a single person. Some Siamese are extremely vocal, with a loud, low-pitched voice—known as "Meezer", from which they get one of their nicknames[6]—that has been compared to the cries of a human baby, and persistent in demanding attention. These cats are typically active and playful, even as adults, and are often described as more dog-like in behavior than other cats.

The pointed cat known in the West as "Siamese", recognized for its distinctive markings, is one of several breeds of cats from Siam described and illustrated in manuscripts called "Tamra Maew" (Cat Poems), estimated to have been written from the 14th to the 18th century.In 1878, U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes received the first documented Siamese to reach the United States, a cat named "Siam" sent by the American Consul in Bangkok.
