The origin of this breed is directly related to the Siamese. In the 50 years of the last century breeders were accidentally bred cat breed, similar to the Siamese. Long-haired kittens, obtained from the tribal representatives of the species, first surprised scientists and therefore were rejected. But then the American breeders decided to conduct an experiment on long-haired animals. As a result, they turned out to be Balinese cats. They liked many animal lovers.
Thai - this is another breed of cats, similar to the Siamese (photo of the representatives you can see a little lower). They originated in Thailand. Previously, they were revered as saints. They lived in the monasteries and palaces of the caliphs of Siam.

What is the breed of cats, similar to the Siamese, but fluffy? This is sacred Burma.
The history of its origin is surrounded by darkness. There is a version that this animal originated in one of the temples of Burma and was considered sacral. According to another version, in 1919 one representative of the genus Vanderbilt-aristocrats bought two such kittens for a large sum of cash in Manyamy. Unfortunately, only one kitten got to France, the second one was too weak and died on the way. Because of this, the remaining kitten, who reached sexual maturity, was crossed with some unknown cat, as a result of which the Burmese cats appeared.
According to another version, this breed was brought out in France. And whatever version was true, registered this breed and described the standard in France in 1925.
Burmese cats are extremely kind and accommodating. But still they can calm down the inveterate choleric and stir up the phlegmatic person.

Oriental crossed with Siamese. As a result, this species appeared.
In 1923, the British club of cat lovers stopped counting the orientals to Siamese because of their monotonous gray color and completely green eyes. He distinguished this cat in a separate breed. Although one of her ancestors is a Siamese cat.

They have blue eyes, hair is fluffy, more often white. The tail of representatives of the same length as the Siamese cats, the character is bad, since it is very demanding to the attention of the owner, does not like to share it with anyone.
Work on this group of cats began in 1984. They are kept to this day.
It is a luxurious cat for rich people who are ready to give her all their love without a trace and attention. She does not like to be alone, she will "talk" with pleasure. This cat is very delicate and extremely sensitive. She does not like the change of habitual situation, because of such things she can have the strongest stress.
Another breed of cats, similar to the Siamese. Formed by crossing Siamese with sacred Burma.
Work on this excretion was conducted by Canadian and American breeders. In their opinion, when crossing, they should have a cat with the color of Siamese and muscles of Burma. Canadian breeders were lucky to withdraw the desired representative faster.
These cats fit perfectly with anyone. They are less active than the Siamese, but their temperament is brighter than that of Burmese.
Esoterics are also interested in this breed. They managed to find out that Tonkinsky cats have strong energy fields that can protect the house and its owners from negative influences from outside.
Tonkin people have a wonderful intuition. Due to what they anticipate unpleasant events and feel the mood of the owner. They are never imposed if the person next to him is in a bad mood.
Himalayan - a breed of cats, similar to the Siamese. It was received in the 50's. The breed was formed by crossing Siamese and Persian felids. Offspring was selected on the basis of color, a point was needed.
Visually, these cats resemble Persian cats, but from Siamese got the coloring.
Himalayan cats are unlimitedly devoted to their master and will follow him anywhere.

Forin White is a breed of cats, similar to the Siamese. His appearance is due to the English breeder P. Turner. By chance, she got a photo of a Siamese purple cat with a light. And she decided to create a cat breed, but only with white wool.
In the sixties, with the help of breeders of Siamese cats and white short-haired Britons, P. Turner withdrew Forin White.
Their temperament is similar to the temperament of Siamese cats. They are clever, wayward animals. Forin White - cats who like to "talk". Representatives of the breed are not particularly active.
The breed Javanese originated in the experiments of the Canadian scientist M. Davis. Since the 70s, she has been breeding cats of various colors.

This cat, according to legend, guarded the young maidens in the ancient monasteries of Siam. They put their jewelry on the tail of the seal. When they became too much, the animal's tail broke. Therefore, the Bobtails have a short tail.
