Our Siamese cat

Over in coneycat's LJ there has been some discussion of Siamese cats and the differences between the classic type and the new, much more elongated modern show cat.

I have finally got back to the slide scanning, which for no real reason ground to a halt last year. Here is our Siamese cat (proper name Myrdal, but always known as "Catlet") being cuddled by our son, then aged 6. Photo taken in 1986 when Catlet would have been 10. As you can see, she has the normal rounded feline face.

I know that the Siamese personality is not liked by everyone, but I'd love another Siamese, but not the gangly modern type, which to be honest I find rather ugly. More cat photos as and when I come across them.
