Our Old-Style-Siamese cat recently passed. We want to start preparing for new cats -- actually siblings this time.

We loved the temperment of our Siamese, and the personality is the number one thing we're looking for. However, we love the look of all-gray short-hairs as well.

Is there any breed that is basically the body of a Russian Blue or similar with the soul of a Siamese?

The backup plan is a blue point or lilac point Siamese, and if we can't find that, we'd still give plenty of love to seal point kitties.

Maybe an Egyptian Mau.
Lots of mixed Siamese in shelters.

A lot of cat breeds aren't strong in the personality to breed tie. Shelter cats who are pointed aren't necessarily recently related to Siamese either. I have two pointed cats, one very much in line with stereotypical behavior and the other is very much not.

If you are open to it, I'd recommend reaching out to a foster parent or rescue in your area who is willing to work with you to find the right personality. Getting a year old (or older) would mean they would be fairly solid on personality and you'd have a clear picture of them.
