Standard of Points GCCF



Current General Type Standard of Points





The Siamese cat should be a beautifully balanced animal with head, ears and neck carried on a long svelte body, supported on fine legs and feet, with a tail in proportion.  The head and profile should be wedge-shaped, neither round nor pointed.  The eyes should be a clear brilliant blue, the expression alert and intelligent.

Head - Long and well proportioned, with width between the ears, narrowing in perfectly straight lines to a fine muzzle, with straight profile, strong chin and level bite, carried upon an elegant neck.

Ears - Rather large, wide at the base, set so as to follow the lines of the wedge. Adult exhibits should be penalised equally for ears which are set too high and too low, distorting the balanced triangular effect.

Eyes - Oriental in shape and slanting towards the nose, but with width between. They should not be deep-set. The haw should not cover more than the corner of the eye. 

Body, Legs and Feet - Body medium in size, long and svelte, legs proportionately slim, hind legs slightly higher than the front legs, feet small and oval. The body, legs and feet should all be in proportion, giving the whole a well balanced appearance.

Tail - Long and tapering and free from any kink.

Points - Mask, ears, feet and tail dense and clearly defined colour, matching in basic colour on all points, showing clear contrast between points and body colour. Mask complete and (except in kittens) connected by tracings with the ears.

Coat - Very short and fine in texture, glossy and close-lying.

Colours - As per individual colour standards, any shading to appear on back and sides.  Bib, chest and belly to be pale.
