Leaving Siamese alone?

Hello; I am single and live in a one bedroom apartment. My work keeps me away for twelve hours a day, for four to five days a week. I have had a Siamese cat once before and loved her personality, but I was married at the time so our cats were not alone for long periods of time. My question is; is it fair to; even if I have a pair of Siamese; to leave them alone all day. Especially at the kitten stage. I love Siamese cats buts I don't want to be selfish. I have read conflicting opinions on the internet but I would like to hear from someone that I know is a little more qualified about the breed. Thank you for your time.

Ten years ago, who would guess NEW

Ten years ago, who would guess that social media would offer business owners the potential to grow and expand their clientele so vastly, but in reality, it is becoming more and more popular the use social media, as a sales strategy, to attract new clients and retain the current ones. If you have done your evaluation, as I explain in the "Three Irrefutable Rules of Sales Success" and you are convinced the use of social media is in completely attachment with your product and service profile, then you may want to explore this avenue. So let's review...

He used to talk to me about NEW
by: Anonymous

He used to talk to me about things that happened at work. Now he seems to act as if I couldn't possible understand his career. He seems to think I've dumbed down since I've become a mother. I am seriously disturbed about this. I worry that he doesn't respect me or see my worth so that he will eventually cheat. Or I worry that I will eventually get sick of not being appreciated and leave. Either way, I feel like our marriage is in trouble. How can I make him see my worth?"

My cat hates too much stimulation

It likes to visit briefly after eating, then likes to be left alone in the quiet until next feeding time (she is very friendly when she wants to visit though). She seems to like being left home alone and I think she is much happier with about 85% solitude during the day. i believe that if i was home all day or had another cat she would be very unhappy.

I agree cats not kittens
by: angelina diantonio

Kittens need tons of one on one attention.Go for the cats.So many cats cannot be adopted because people only want kittens.

So many cats need homes.You would not believe how many Siamese are left without homes.Look for two that get along and love to snuggle.It will be good for all of you.Just make sure fresh food and water before you leave.I say go for it.No one should be alone and this looks like a win win situation for all.Keep us posted .The cats will sleep all day and enjoy you when you get home.You will all fall into a schedule together perfectly.

I thought that two adult cats maybe; but two kittens just seems cruel to me now.

Leaving Siamese cats alone.
by: Beatrice

Hi there,

This depends very much on the cat or cats. If you have two cats, e.g. siblings the same age who get along well, e.g. two young sisters, they will gladly entertain themselves for the whole day. Once they have their cat litter and plenty of food and of course are warm and feel secure, they will be fine. Remember cats are solitary creatures, unlike dogs. However , you have got to get the set up right at the beginning. They will usually sleep most of the day and then get up to all kinds of activities when you come back. 12 hours is a bit long, but so what, at least they are seeing you every day.

Go for it and make sure that they feel warm, secure and well fed

Hope this helps.

Leaving siamese alone!
by: Karen

I have two siamese but need to separate them as one of them is blind and they do tend to have a go at one another. We leave the seal point the run of the kitchen dining room and living room. The blind siamese has the run of upstairs with our dog. If we are out all day my seal point (not the blind one)is sick! I think this is because she is on her own and hates it. My husband is a taxi driver and gets in most days at lunch time but the days that he is very busy and doesn't make it in we come in to a pile of sick! 12 hours is a long time - I wouldn't! Hope this helps with your decision.

Sorry
by: Anonymous

I know that leaving such an innocent soul alone to feel abandoned is wrong. I appreciate their beauty so much that I wish there was a way that they could be in my life. The truth is; because of my situation; taking on two kittens of any breed is selfish. I was just looking for a justification. I am sorry for taking your time.

My babies are brother and sister
by: angelina diantonio

I cannot imagine leaving mine for long.I am a stay at home mom and mine are with me all the time.When I take the kids to school or go to run errands they watch us leave from the gate.I see them looking for us at the window when we return.Look into the rescues and humaine societies in your area.Put down that you work alot and would like two that love to be together and like their own space.That way you can have cats that love you when your home and love their own alone time together.So many cats that need good homes would love to have you.Keep us posted.
