The Siamese were originally brought to the US from Thailand in the late 1800s. It is widely believed that Siamese descend from the Sacred Temple Cats of Siam, now know as Thailand and are one of the oldest Asian breeds. The breed was considered so prestigious that only the King and Royal Family were allowed to keep them as pets.
Siamese are the most highly recognized breed in the world and appear in poems and myths dating back as early as 1350. Adele Locke is recorded as owning the first registered Siamese "Stockehaven Siam". Locke owned multiple Siamese in her lifetime and traveled frequently to show them. Many photos of Adele and her Siamese can be found by completing a simple Internet search.
