"I love siamese cats and all cats for that matter but all i really talk about
are siamese cats."
"I have two male siamese. One is age 16 and a blue point, and the other is age 10 and a choc point. Believe me, there is never a dull moment with these two. I can say this about these two boys; if they are not im trouble or being scolded by mom, they are thinking about what trouble they want to get into.
Otherwise, they are two very good boys, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Life is never a dull moment with these two around."
