Thai behavior behavior

The Thai is a wonderful choice in a cat for any fancier. It's calm temperament makes it well suited for multiple environments, be it apartment living or a country setting. They are patient with children and calm enough to make good pets for seniors as well.

The Thai, also known as the 'Traditional Siamese' or the 'Applehead Siamese' is an intelligent cat who takes pleasure from resting in your lap as equally as playing with a favorite toy. Because they are so intelligent, training can be tricky. Some are very open to training and will learn after the first 'no' that they must cease and desist whatever it is they are doing, and they will not repeat it. Others, however, may have a more playful nature and will 'test' their owners by trying things they know are forbidden when they have the first opportunity to do so. This is usually the first moment after their owner's backs are turned. These cats thrive on the attention of people and are not shy to ask for it, even from people they do not know, but because they are so intelligent they also like to do things we sometimes wish they would not do. They get along well with other cats and dogs, particularly if the Thai is raised with them. Like most cats, having a second cat companion is a wonderful idea. But the second cat can not be a replacement for human companionship and it should never be used as a substitute. The Thai like the Siamese, can be a very vocal cat who likes to let its owner know exactly what is on his mind, though some rarely 'talk'. Their voices can be similar to the Siamese, while others have soft gentle meows.
