My 7 month old siamese that I got from the humane society is chewing everything. I have toys for him all over the house and he still goes for other things. He also has watery eyes. Just got him about 6 weeks ago and he was given full check up before I adopted him. Suggestions for the chewing? He has ruined two jackets and a few purse straps!! HELP

Eyes
by: angelina diantonio

When I got my firdt cats from a rescue, a couple days after we came home I noticed runny eyes. I took her to the vet and he gave her drops for an infection.He said it was common. I gave both of the cats the drops in both eyes because the vet said it could spread to the other cat.After the drops were gone so was the infection and runny eyes.It never happened again.They lives a great 14 years with no medical problems. They got sick after the Iams recall with liver and kidney disease and I lost almost 2 years ago.

Fuzzy Slippers !!!
by: angelina diantonio

We got our kittens tons of cat toys for Christmas. Well the kittens could care less. My daughter is a year and a half and loves all the balls ! lol My daughters got fuzzy slippers for Christmas and the cats loves them.Especially my boy Romeo. I hide them so he will not find them and he always does. He plays with them for hours. Try nice fuzzy slippers. You can probably get them on sale at any mall.

Chewing
by: Beatrice

HI there,

My Siamese is big into show laces, she can't get enough of them and my balls of wool are ruined with her chewing. Try to stimulate her in other ways, maybe with moving toys, furry mice which slide are a great hit and rolled up bits of paper that bobble when thrown, anything to divert attention. Siamese need a lot of stimulation. Also give her hard dried food to stimulate her gums.

re the watery eyes, my Lilac Burmese eyes are permanently runny. He got a bad cold many years ago and as a result his lacrimal ducts have never been right since. I suspect the same happened to your little one, especially if you got him from a rescue centre, you will not know the full history. Keep them dry all of the time, I have to constantly mop them with a dry tissue. If you bring him to the vet, they will prescribe eye drops and these are not much good. I hope that this helps.

Kind regards,

Beatrice from Ireland.

He needs to see a Vet.

Sounds like something is wrong. None of mine have ever done that. The watery eyes are not normal either.
