angry siamese

Hi.. I have a siamese mix named Simba. He's a beautiful gray/silver color with a pointy siamese face. he's absolutely gorgeous. Now when he was a kitten he was a little feisty. He would just come after your hand for no reason. As he got older, he got a bit better... EXCEPT when he goes to the vet. yikes. He has a "CAUTION" file at the vet and must be sedated when he goes in. He'll be 5 in July, and when he was about 4.. his mother and I separated. So he went to live in another home and Mariah, my calico stayed with me. More recently, my former partner wanted him declawed because he was scratching the couches, etc.. - i said "No way, Jose. He will become a completely different cat." LONG story short, he is back living with me after a year of being away. Since he moved, I've taken in a friends 2 cats Poochie and Charlie, both orange tabby's, a rescue pitbull named Paris AND I still have Mariah. I'm working on socializing him with the others. Right now he is in his own room with a radio, his litter box, food, and some blankets and the cat carrier where he feels safe. Any suggestions?!?!?!?!

Hi there,

We do not know why some cats are feisty and others aren't. It's all in the genes. You were right not to have him ce-clawed, how horrid!. Just keep clipping the nails with a proper nail clippers.

He will need to socialise sooner rather than later, he cannot live in isolation on his own with a radio like an eccentric bachelor. He will find his own space and cats in particular are great survivors. Do it gradually and set down rules for him from the beginning. Any kind of unsociable behaviour is treated with a little tap, to let him know that that is unacceptable. My Burmese took to spraying our house when the Siamese arrived. Nothing was safe, it was so bad that he peed right into the TV one night as we were looking at it, and the picture totally froze up for 24 hours. But I shout at him now when I see him suatting and he runs. He knows. they always do!

Good luck with the training. I hope that he won't be too intimidated by the bull terrier, they can cause great fear among cats.

Best wishes,

Beatrice from Ireland.
