The cat featured in this jigsaw puzzle is a Siamese cat. Siamese cats were one of the first Asian breeds to achieve worldwide distinction. The Siamese cat became a favorite breed in North America and Europe throughout the 20th century and the Siamese is still extremely popular today. A show quality Siamese cat has a dainty, svelte body, and a head that tapers sharply from a narrow muzzle, to ears, which are pricked and large. Its tail has a wide base and tapers to a long, fine end. These cats have cream colored bodies with dark fur on their legs, faces and tails.
