The Original Siamese  1880-1930


CHAMPION WANKEE


CHAMPION WANKEE

The First Siamese Champion, 1898

Born in 1895, Wankee did not achieve his Champion title until three years of age, in 1898. He was owned by Mrs. Robinson, and it is said he was born in Hong Kong, and his mother reputed to have been “stolen from the Palace as a kitten”, presumably meaning the King of Siam’s royal palace, though this is unclear.

CHAMPION INWOOD SHADOW

Breeder/Owner: Mrs. McGregor

"England's loveliest Siamese, still holding her own at 4 and a half years: body colour pale as a kitten, the supreme example of what a Siamese should be." Brian Stirling-Webb, writing in 'Fur & Feather', 1951.

CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS KUALA CARU

Breeder: Mrs. M. MacAlister/Owner: Mrs. Ruby Alexander

The “Champion of Champions” title was used for a short time before Grand Championships were introduced in Britain, and was attained by only a few cats. Caru died in 1987 aged 18 years, having sired his last litter in 1985. 
JASON
JASON 

The Blue Peter cat

Appearing twice weekly on the famous children’s TV programme  “Blue Peter” in the late 60’s and 1970’s, Jason inspired a whole generation of Siamese cat owners: children (and their parents!) who grew up wanting a cat like him. He was cared for by Mrs. Edith Menezes of the “Taishun” prefix, probably best-known for her Abyssinians, and made annual appearances on exhibition at the National Cat Club Show at Olympia for many years.
