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?!?!?!?!
