However, everything I've read says you have to have papers from a breeder to register with the CFA. The only documentation I have is from the Humane Society indicating his breed as Siamese. Any suggestions?
There's not much you can do, unless the humane society has the registration paperwork.
That would be highly unlikely. It's also unlikely that they know who the breeder is, if in fact your cat is a Siamese breed.
But, it wouldn't hurt to inquire. Maybe you can get them to tell you where exactly your kitten came from.
Was it turned in by an owner, or did it come from a rescued litter? If they are willing to answer some questions, you could be closer to finding out the lineage of your cat.
Without registration paperwork from a registered litter, what you in fact have is a DSH, that looks similar to Siamese.
But, as was mentioned by Abbycats, you can enter your cat in Household Pet division without a registration for shows, if that's what you're interested in doing.
