The Siamese cat is one of the most distinct Asian cat breeds. Native to Thailand, the Siamese cat was derived from the Wichian Meat Thai breed, and quickly became one of the most popular breeds in Europe and North America in the 19th century.
Siamese cats come in traditional, applehead (bulkier build), and modern (skinny with a wedge-shaped head) varieties. The long-haired version is a Balinese cat. Breeders have developed a variety of color variations, including blue point, lilac point, lynx point, and snowshoe.

Potential pet parents are encouraged to visit the facility and meet the cats, but may be asked to remove shoes, wear clean clothing, and avoid contact with other cats before handling the cats or kittens to limit disease transmission. All kittens come with genetic health certifications, spaying and neutering, vaccinations, and socialization.

How to Choose a Reputable Breeder
Just like puppy mills, any animal in the pet trade can be produced in a mill environment. Cat and kitten mills often have horrendous conditions for both parents and kittens, leaving animals susceptible to disease and chronic health conditions. Kittens are also exploited for profit and robbed of vital developmental experiences, such as maternal bonding and socialization with cats and humans.
These kittens are often removed from their mothers early and offered for sale online and in pet stores. Kittens that don’t sell may end up in testing facilities and laboratories. Aside from supporting these unethical practices and deplorable conditions, purchasing a kitten mill kitten can mean a life of emotional and physical problems.
Naturally, kitten mills don’t advertise themselves as such. If you want to avoid getting a kitten mill kitten, look for reputable breeders, not pet stores or online classifieds. Reputable breeders care about their kittens’ wellbeing and the home they’ll end up in, often asking potential owners to sign a contract with specific guidelines for spaying and neutering, breeding rights, declawing, and more. A good breeder will also wait until the kitten is emotionally and physically ready to go to their forever home, usually at 12 to 16 weeks, and will encourage potential owners to visit or inquire about the breeding conditions.
