12 Traditional Siamese Breed: Breeders

There aren't many Traditional Siamese breeders in the world. Each
breeder tends to specialize in a different look - some have the very
round, very stocky, Traditional cats, while others have a cat that TCA
calls a "Classic Siamese" which is a bit more refined, though still
retaining the round head, and still others have cats that are more of
a modified wedge. Prospective buyers need to decide what sort of look
they prefer, and talk to breeders about their cats, their health, and
their personalities.

Don't be surprised if the breeder thoroughly questions you about the
sort of environment you will provide for the cat - most breeders are
very careful in selecting homes for their kittens. You will probably
be asked to sign an agreement stating that the cat will be spayed/
neutered, that it will _NOT_ be declawed, and that it will be an
indoor-only cat.

Many Traditional Siamese cats are _not_ registered, even though the
majority are from purebred lines whose breeders have kept meticulous
records over the years. We must admit that some cats advertised as
"Traditional Siamese", though they exhibit all the desirable purebred
qualities, are of questionable lineage, and may have some alley cat
not too far back in the pedigree. If this matters to you, you can try
to find cats that are registered - though difficult, it is not
impossible.

Disclaimer: These breeders have been recommended in good faith by the
author. However, you are still responsible for verifying that a
particular breeder meets your needs to your satisfaction.
