Advice need on half Siamese cat

My cat is half Siamese and display the characteristics. I have 2 questions. I know nothing about cats generally, she was my ex partners and he left her here ( so she is used to men). However when a member of my family/ friend come over she becomes so protective of me, she will attack me if I try move closer to them or move her away. She will attack them if they get to close. This is very flattering but I am single so need this to stop lol. Also my daughter plans on getting a puppy in the summer. How do I go about getting her to accept the puppy?

Half Siamese cat NEW
by: Beatrice

Hi there,

Poor little puss! She is only trying to protect you and she is also confused as her original owner is gone. Cats can manifest their emotional insecurity and confusion in different ways, mine goes and hides under the bed for at least one day when a new house-sitter comes when we go on holidays. So she will need a lot of love and affection and she will need to have her security restored. She will need to know that she is safe with you and that you are reliable and trustworthy, which I am sure you are. So by doing the same things every day, in other words a routine, she will come to accept you and feel more secure. Personally speaking I would not get a puppy, unless it is a very nice docile breed, as this will only add to her confusion. But then again, that is your choice.

Kind regards,

Beatrice from ireland.

The cat may feel threatened because she was abandoned by her owner.Cats have the same feelings and emotions as we do.The cat will feel all your emotions on top.Was it a bad breakup? The cat will try to protect you and make you feel better.You all need time and you will blend as a family.As for the puppy I would introduce them first and see how they get along.Maybe if you pick the puppy out and introduce its smell first.Let the puppy lay on a blanket and then let the cat have the blanket.Start off small and do not get discouraged.The cat and puppy will need time but will be best buddies after time and patience.Everyone just needs to love them both and play with them both. Sometimes when a puppy or kitten is introduced everyone makes a fuss over the puppy and the older cat or dog is slighted a bit.Just make sure everyone gets ample affection and love.Keep us posted!!!
