Siamese

Today, the Siamese is one of the most popular cat breeds in the United States. Siamese cats are known as good communicators with an unusually loud meow. They're also smart and can be trained to obey commands such as "sit" and "stay." Some Siamese cats will even walk on a leash! Full of amazing, real-life stories, Siamese: Talk to Me! recounts the breed's history, personality, suitability as a pet, and the special characteristics that set it apart from other breeds. Cat lovers will agree that it's the purr-fect read!
