The ideal Siamese is a medium sized, svelte, refined cat with long tapering lines, very lithe but muscular. Males may be proportionately larger.
- Long, tapering wedge. Medium size in good proportion to body. The total wedge starts at the nose and flares out in straight lines to the tips of the ears forming a triangle, with no break at the whiskers. No less than the width of an eye between the eyes. When the whiskers are smoothed back, the underlying bone structure is apparent. Allowance must be made for jowls in the stud cat.
- Flat. In profile, a long straight line is seen from the top of the head to the tip of the nose. No bulge over the eyes. No dip in nose.
- Strikingly large, pointed, wide at base, continuing the lines of the wedge.
- Almond shaped. Medium size. Neither protruding nor recessed. Slanted towards the nose in harmony with lines of wedge and ears. Uncrossed.
- Long and straight. A continuation of the forehead with no break.
- Fine, wedge-shaped.
Chin and jaw
- Medium size. Tip of chin lines up with tip of nose in the same vertical plane. Neither receding nor excessively massive.
- Medium size. Graceful, long, and svelte. A distinctive combination of fine bones and firm muscles. Shoulders and hips continue same sleek lines of tubular body. Hips never wider than shoulders. Abdomen tight.
- Long and slender.
- Long and slim. Hind legs higher than front. In good proportion to body.
- Dainty, small, and oval. Toes : five in front and four behind.
- Long, thin, tapering to a fine point.
- Short, fine textured, glossy. Lying close to body.
- Excellent physical condition. Eyes clear. Muscular, strong and lithe. Neither flabby nor boney. Not fat.
- Body : even, with subtle shading when allowed. Allowance should be made for darker color in older cats as Siamese generally darken with age, but there must be definite contrast between body color and points.
- Points : mask, ears, legs, feet, tail dense and clearly defined. All of the same shade. Mask covers entire face including whisker pads and is connected to ears by tracings. Mask should not extend over top of head. No ticking or white hairs in points.
