The Siamese has its own legend, and it was said that when Siamese kings died, their souls would pass on to a Siamese cat, so that he could be present at the coronation of the succeeding king before attaining heaven. This cat would have been treated as part of the Royal family, and would have resided in the palace.
Besides that, there are some Siamese cats who have a kinked tail and who have yet another legend. They’re considered auspicious in the Far East, and legend has it that an ancestor of this breed voluntarily kinked it’s tail to offer a safe place for the princess’ rings while she was bathing. She used to slide her rings along the cat’s tail, and there was no danger of them being lost, as the kinked tail prevented them from falling.
