What Exactly is a Snowshoe Siamese Cat?

Have you ever heard of a cat called a Snowshoe Siamese? In reality, most people haven’t heard of this particular breed of cat, that is, unless they just happen to be particularly fond of them. While it’s true that some cat people might be aware of this breed, the average majority of the population wouldn’t know a snowshoe Siamese if they were looking at one. The truth of the situation is that these are some beautiful cats that can make good pets in the right circumstances.

As you might have guessed from the name, the snowshoe siamese is something of an offshoot from the siamese cat. It shares some of the same commonalities of the siamese, yet it is distinctly different in and of itself. It is very much its own breed. The snowshoe version is much more modern than the original siamese cats and originated in the northeastern part of the United States. While they share some of the traits of the siamese, there is also a great deal about these cats that is very different.

For example, the snowshoe siamese doesn’t really look anything like you would think a siamese cat should look. They tend to have darker coats and more often than not, they’re tricolor in nature. They have white feet, as the name implies. Aside from that, they look more like a standard house cat of some different breed because they certainly don’t look like a siamese cat. They’re usually bigger, heavier and for all intents and purposes, their muscle tone is much bulkier than the leaner siamese.

A lot of people have questions about the temperament of the snowshoe siamese, as the traditional siamese cat is often thought of as one of the more aggressive breeds out there. Fortunately, the overwhelming majority of snowshoe siamese cats have a tendency to be a little more docile than their older brethren. They aren’t as aggressive and they don’t tend to get as upset by little things. In other words, they’re usually less neurotic. With that being said, it’s important to remember that every animal is an individual and you can’t base the personality of any animal solely on its breed. Instead, you have to get to know the animal itself.

If you’re wondering whether or not it would be worth it to have one of these cats, that is something you will have to decide entirely for yourself. As cats go, they’re a pretty good breed to have around. However, it’s important that you always take the time to find the animal that you are capable of bonding with. It’s equally important that the animal is capable of bonding with you. Some animals just click with certain people and not with others. You also have to take into account additional circumstances, such as other members of the family and any other pets that you might already have. As long as you keep all of that in mind, you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a snowshoe siamese that would work well with your family. They don’t really tend to have any additional problems that the average cat doesn’t have, so you don’t have a lot to worry about in that category, at least.
