About Apple point Siamese
The traditional Siamese, also known as the apple-headed Siamese or the Apple point Siamese cat, has a rounded head and chunky body. Those cats are larger, a little rounder in the face, and much more muscular. Generally talking they are long and slender with a pointed face and aquiline nose. Still, they seem healthier that the modern ones. They are considered as the first type of Siamese that appeared in the USA in the 19th century.
While the Apple Point Siamese can be found in the same color variants as the modern Siamese, their shape and build are very different. The apple head tends to be slightly larger and stockier than the modern Siamese, and their heads are rounder and less pronouncedly pointed, hence the “apple head” name.

As their name represents, Siamese cats originated from felines born in Siam in Thailand. No one can really know how they made it to the American lands during the 19th century. Luckily, the lovely breed has made its way to the country to become one of the most favorite cat breeds.
A Thai manuscript called the Tamra Maew shows a description of the Siamese cats. That book was made between the 14th and 18th centuries which suggests that Siamese cats are a very old breed.
