Being very similar in appearance, one wonders what the differences between a Thai cat and a Siamese. The Thai cat breed is, in fact, closely related to the more well-known Siamese, so it's no surprise that they are often confused.
The controversy surrounding the Thai cat is that it is not a pure breed and many consider it to be the old Siamese. THE changes between the modern Western Siamese and the new Thai cat occurred when the British brought the latter to the United Kingdom, with the aim of breeding a more attractive cat for exhibitions.
Animal enthusiasts very often believe that Thai and Siamese cats belong to a single breed, calling them differently. Although both cats are from Thailand, they are similar in color and belong to a we-oriental group, however these felines show important differences between them.
The main distinguishing features between Siamese and Thai cats are evident in theirs appearance. Although they share the distinctive distinctive coloring (often referred to as "pointed" because the color on small parts of the tail, head, ears, legs is darker than the body) and the identical eye color (from bright blue to blue) these two breeds they have one different physical structure.
THE Siamese cats reminiscent of the oriental classic. Their bodies are harmonious, slightly elongated and have a torso with long and thin legs, the shape of the head is wedge-shaped and they have large ears.
There Thai breed it is distinguished by a more powerful and rounded torso, rather thick legs of medium length, shorter and thicker tail. The head is similar to an apple and the small ears are a bit wrapped around the ends.
Difference in character
THE Siamese are smart, they can be polite and are strongly attached to the owner, but also capricious and jealous. Aggression is not shown, but it will protect its owner if he feels the threat of danger.
THE Thais are active, peaceful cats, more tender. They are friendly towards people and other pets in the house. Cats of this breed are playful and suffer from a lack of attention from the owner.
Distinction between Thai and Siamese puppies
The difference between one breed and the other is evident with regard to already adult animals. On the other hand, it is more difficult to identify puppies based on the breed as the genetic lines are not shown before 2-3 months of life. How to recognize them then?
- Pay attention to the shape of the head: Thai kittens have a rounder one, while that of the Siamese is wedge-shaped with large ears.
- Tail: in Thai puppies it narrows from base to tip, while in Siamese puppies the thickness is identical over its entire length.
Bust: the kittens of the Thai breed have a more robust constitution, on the other hand that of the Siamese is leaner, with long legs.
In 2007 the Thai cat breed was recognized and appeared in the “New Breed” category. While from 1 May 2010, these cats can be registered and take part in competitions with other breeds.
