Are Siamese cats from Siam? Well, so the story goes. It is hard to trace back the origins of this breed with complete certainty, but it seems they do come from Asia,

Despite their lovely form and triangular head, the Siamese cat is a loud-voiced feline, not at all demure. A dear friend of mine did have a snow shoe Siamese, which was a pretty, quiet little cat. When Donna passed away, it came to me to find her a new home, which was quite easy to do. I can’t imagine a Siamese cat being homeless for long.

But since Siamese rescue does exist, I suppose it must happen.
