At the July, 2011 CFA (teleconference) Board Meeting, Breed Councils requiring more than five (5) generations to register via pedigree were directed to poll their members to reconsider the requirement.

The following question will appear on the 2011 Siamese Breed Council Ballot:

1.   PROPOSED: Should the Siamese registration rules CONTINUE with the 8 generation requirement for registration by pedigree or revert back to the pre-1996 requirement of 5 generations?

RATIONALE (in part): The Siamese Breed Council rationale for requesting the 8 generation pedigree in 1996 (and confirming that by ballot in 2004) still stands today: to preserve the integrity of the breed by discouraging the introduction of non-traditional colors, coat factors and structural changes to the existing Siamese gene pool.

The ballot will also contain the following question:

2.   PROPOSED: Add the following phrase to the GENERAL section:


GENERAL: the ideal Siamese is a medium sized, svelte, refined cat with long tapering lines, very lithe but muscular. Males may be proportionately larger.


GENERAL: the ideal Siamese is a medium sized, svelte, refined cat with long tapering lines, very lithe but muscular. Males may be proportionately larger. Balance and refinement are the essence of the breed, where all parts come together in a harmonious whole, with neither too much nor too little consideration given to any one feature.

RATIONALE: Sometimes, a judge favors or disfavors one particular feature far greater than its worth in the point structure. The Siamese must be bred and judged on the whole presentation without fixation on a particular feature. No feature, be it ears, chin, color, body, profile, etc., should be over- or under-emphasized. The whole cat must be balanced and refined.

This statement appears at the beginning of the Persian standard and should be well known to all of CFA’s judges. It applies to the Siamese as well and says perfectly that the ideal example of the breed is more than the sum of individual features.
