Where do I Find Siamese Cats?

Find Siamese Cats
Of all the questions we get asked about Siamese Cats, the most common one is "Where can I get a Siamese?" And we completely understand. Read on to find out how and where you can get a Meezer friend for yourself.

The Good News

The good news is that there are several places you can search, and the internet makes this so much easier. Word of mouth helps too. Tell your friends and relatives and they can spread the word and help keep a lookout for you.

Sometimes the Cat Finds You

Of course, sometimes you get lucky and the cat finds you; this is what happened for us when Gremlin arrived. We decided we were ready for a kitten and went to our local humane society's adoption event to pick one out. One foster mom had one kitten. This was both their first adoption day AND ours! Within 20 minutes we were home with our new meezer baby.

You Will Find the Right One

Most of the time, however, finding the right cat will take time, persistence, patience, and a bit of luck. The more specific your requirements - age, sex, color, body type, personality - the longer it can take. Your home situation, whether you have small children, other pets, travel, etc., and the distance you are willing, able, and can afford to go to get your new baby will also have an effect. Don't worry! This is not impossible and you will have options. Just be patient and you will find the right one.

  • Breeders
There are many reputable breeders of Siamese cats who sell kittens as well as retired adults. An internet search using keywords, "siamese," "cat," "breeder," and location will give some results, but not all. You can also specify modern or traditional type in your search, but this may narrow the results too much. Advertisments at online classifieds sites will also come up in the search. It will always be important to verify that these are reputable breeders registered with one or more of the major cat fancy associations. Cat fancy associations often will list breeders, and it helps to search as many as possible. Some examples:

Due Diligence!

The Cat Fanciers' Association has a searchable directory of breeders throughout the world, though at the time of this writing there were results only for the US. The International Cat Association also has a small list of breeders for Siamese and Thai cats in the US. However, the associations do not make any guarantees about the breeding and business practices of those listed and recommend due diligence. You can also review disciplinary suspensions from CFA and GCCF.

The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy Australia and Victoria Inc. provides a breeders list, as does the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy of South Australia.

In New Zealand, the New Zealand Cat Fancy lists their accredited Siamese catteries as well as kittens for sale.

The Fanciers Breeder Referral List (FBRL) is a directory of breeders of pedigreed cats, primarily in the US and Canada. Their list for Siamese breeders is large, but not all inclusive. They also provide lists for available retired adults & litter and announcements

). As with the associations, FBRL cannot guarantee that information is up to date, and, while they will take complaints under advisement, they have strict guidelines for the complaint and discplinary process and in their words are "not the cat police."

Aside from searching for websites directly, you can often find postings by breeders of Siamese cats for sale at ebay and Oodle Marketplace in the US, Gumtree in Australia, and Trade Me in New Zealand. Once again, thorough due diligence is necessary in order to avoid supporting kitten mills!

We hope this resource helps you find the kitty you're looking for! There are lots of options and it will probably take some leg work to find the Siamese who is right for you, but take it from us that it's well worth it!
