Temperament: Siamese cats are calm, intelligent and people-oriented. They are somewhat talkative companions that are very friendly. They are notorious for going up to strangers and demanding to be petted, in an affectionate way.
Health Risks: They are known to be climbers and jumpers, which can possibly get them stuck in trees and on top of things they can't get down from. Otherwise crossed eyes and kinked tails are the only known health risks, but both are mainly cosmetic.
