Our Thai (Old Style Siamese) kittens are hand raised in our large home and we now have several litters a year, spaced out appropriately, so all of the kittens get plenty of nurturing and attention. We give them the run of the house after they have been litter trained at around the age of 6 weeks. At this point they also start taking a lot of trips with us - school, church choir, cross country meets and basketball games, and to relatives homes and birthday parties. They all get very used to and comfortable with riding in our truck or car. The kittens are flanked by my two young daughters (12 and 13 years old), five adult females Thai cats and two our males Thai cats. This results in our kittens being exceptionally well socialized right from the beginning. This nurturing affects the kittens for the rest of their lives and it cannot be done when they get older. All of this insures that the kittens will become part of your family.
Proud to be Cat Kingpin Certified
Part of the family. . .
While your experiences may be different, I can tell you that our cats enjoy greeting visitors, attending our family functions, riding in vehicles, walking on a leash, playing fetch and consistently following us around the house. They are great with kids and other cats and dogs.
However, BEWARE! They will be underfoot, in your lap, and want to sit on your shoulder or chest. They will sleep on or near you most of the time. They will be a significant part of your family and will require an appropriate amount of attention. It is very important that they have a constant companion feline since they are so over socialized.
Additionally, note that Thais can live to between 15 to 20 years.
*The Thai breed (and native wichianmat specimens) have a much more customary cat appearance, with rounder eyes, face and body, and normal-sized ears, compared to the "new-style" Siamese breed, which is remarkably almond-eyed, thin-faced, thin-bodied, and large-eared, having little in common with the traditional variety other than point coloration.
In 2006 a proposal went forward to recognise the Old-style Siamese as "Thai" in The International Cat Association (TICA), and proponents of the old look met in Hannover, Germany, to introduce the Thai breed proposal. From 2007–2010 this very old breed moved through the New Breed process in TICA, requiring documentation of active breeders, registration of cats and litters and showing cats in many different regions. On January 20, 2010, the TICA board voted to advance the Thai to Championship status beginning on May 1, 2010. On that date, the Thai began competing along with the other breeds in TICA Championship classes.
