Dear Tressa,

It sounds as if you need to take this beauty in hand and let her know that this type of behaviour is not acceptable, particularly around children. Siamese cats can give nasty nips. I think that she may be confused with the various people in the house and probably would be better with just one person with whom she could bond. Is this possible?

She sounds jealous. NEW
by: angelina diantonio

My Uncle had a cat( a mutt we have no idea what he was) he had since a kitten.He got it for the 3 kids.Well this cat loved only him.This was a cat I used to call a mountain lion.He went indoors and out and lived top be 20 years old.He hunted everything and brought back gifts.He just only wanted my Uncle and did not want to share him.He used to hiss and slap my legs with his paws,attack me from corners and all.Just reassure her you love her and give her tons of attention.See if one on one time with each child would help.Start with her on your lap and gently introduce each child one at a time.

i am on my 3rd siamese in my lifetime and i have experienced all personallitys.i also just learned on this site if the cat is not able to use the hunting skills she will practice on humans but ur situation sounds like extreme jealousy..maybe the kids one at a time can approuch her slowly with supervision and just pet her once then back off so she doesnt feel pressured and keep doing this every 30 mins.if she will allow it.on that show they had the person walk out of the house and keep reentering..idk its just a thought but there are alot of sites to help.i had an attack cat siamese towards other people.i now know she did not want anyone in her territory and the vet had suggested an anti anxiety medication to see if that helped.another suggestion for you.it didnt..when my new baby arrived she used the bathroom right in front of me instead of the litter box with 10 mins of us being home,,i was the only person who could hold, touch,pet,love this siamese and i understood her.the vet had to use special gloves to get near her.lol.:-)
When did tressa start this behavior?WAS SOMETHING NEW INTRODUCED TO THE HOME THAT WOULD ANGER HER?WHAT IF SHE IS DISTRACTED WITH A FAVORITE TOY :-):-):-)i DO MISS MY TEMPERMENTAL SIAMESE BUT SHE WAS ATTCKING MY NEWBORN AND REALLY FEARED FOR HIm AS U KNOW THERE TEMPER.SHE WENT WITH A FRIEND OF MINE AT IT WORKED OUT PERFECTLLY:-):-):-):-)
