John Jennings, Domestic or Fancy Cats, Chapter: "Judging on Points," 1893
[Excerpt] The Siamese is a splendid show cat, and is moreover of considerable value, and it will be doubtless one of the first rescued from the "variety" class. I look forward for the Crystal Palace or any other comprehensive exhibition of cats to take the initiative and provide a separate class. Personally I consider the dun body colour the only true representative of this beautiful variety, and to which the heaviest points value is accorded. The eyes are at times a darker blue than is observed in white cats, but it is equally an important adjunct to a true bred Siamese; and attention to their matching is equally important. Of the markings, ears are a characteristic feature, the nearer black the better; they should be stopped off like those of a Himalayan rabbitt, the face, feet, eyes, and tail definitions being somewhat less sharply broken in color; but the denser, and greater equality these markings assume, the higher the range of points value.
