a new kitten with an older cat

by rob wolfe
(millersville, PA, USA)

Hi, I currently have a neutered 9 yr old male siamese. He was recently sick (now back to himself). We are considering getting another siamese kitten and would very much welcome any advise as to the viability of this being possible and what we can do to make this an easy transition for both our 9 yr old and the new kitten.


thanks so very much, Rob

Second Cat or Not?

by Gustavo Peña
(North Hollywood, CA)


I have a 7yr old Siamese rescue. His name is Guillermo aka Llerms. He was declawed when I found him. Overall he is happy and healthy and content talking all day long as well as wedging himself right next to me.

Recently, I was away for an extended period of time for work. I noticed he was very clingy to me when I got back. He is normally very attached to me but this was more than usual. He needed company. I often work long hours and I am considering bringing a new cat into our home. I am of course looking for a Siamese rescue of similar age, size and also that has been declawed.

My concern is that I will bring a new cat in and due to Llerms attachment to me and having lived here for 5 yrs already there may be jealousy issues or territorial problems. That said, Llerms has a very gentle disposition. It took him about a year of watching the catnip bubbles before he actually popped one.

I am looking for some experience in a similar situation of adult Siamese cats being introduced into the same household.

Thanks,
Gus

He also tried running away a number of times. Considering this I gave it to A friend who has a female Siamese which is four hears old and waS having exactly similar problems. Both of them keep fighting And the mAle being stronger has also injured her ESP injuring her mouth and gums to bleed. What is the problem with the two cats. Would they never live happily together. Should I bring my cat back. Please answer my question ASAP

Siamese with a dog

by Debbie
(Vine Grove, Ky)

We have a 3 1/2 lb female Yorkie dog who is 5 yrs old and we thought about a playmate for her and wondered if a Siamese cat, since they do not shed as much as other cats, would be a good idea?

Introducing the cats to a new dog

by Chelsea
(Indiana)

We've recently taken in an abandoned shih tzu, and our two Siamese cats are less than thrilled. While the dog is very even-tempered so far, I was wondering if anyone had any advice for making the cats more comfortable with a new pet in the home?

Got three siamese females.

by Vlad
(Mexico)

I have three of these cats. The mother and two daughters that nobody wanted (because of the gender and expenses of getting them spayed). Now, the three of them are active, playful and loving and all. Typical siamese, right? The mother, however, exhibits an odd behavior. From among my brothers and I, she hangs out with me more often, doesn't like my dad, since he hates cats, but my mother, who is a cat lover, is continuously rejected by her.

My mom tries to pet her, my cat goes away. My mom catches in a corner and tries to pet her, my cat hisses and growls, then escapes.

My mom is usually well liked by cats and stuff, but this particular cat of mine just doesn't like her.

What's up with that? Any ideas?

My dad thinks it may be something smell related, but he doesn't know for sure.

Companion Cat Passed Away

by John
(Chicago)

Last week our 6 year old male siamese cat passed away. Should we get another cat for our 6 year old female siamese cat? They were always together, snuggling and playing and we're afraid she's lonely. If we should get her a new companion, would it be better to get a kitten, an older cat or 2 kittens? Does the sex of the new cat matter?

Questions about bringing in new siamese (babies or adults) to our home.

by Roger
(Newark, DEL)

Hello,

After having two brother siamese who lived to be 22.5 & 23 years old, my wife and I are ready to have two more siamese.

1) Is there any info. that I could read about having two boys vs 2 girls vs 1 of each? (I have been told over the years that two girls is not a good idea.)

2) There are areas in our house and porch where our first guys "sprayed/marked". What is the usual reaction from babies brought in vs. that of adult cats brought in to the house?

Thank you, very much.
Roger

leaving for 2 week vacation

by sherry montgomery
(rochester, ny)

I have a 10 yr old male Siamese. I had adopted 2 Siamese (10 yrs ago) at the same time but my female passed away last spring. We vacation for 2 weeks and I need advice on leaving Sebastian home alone with family coming and going to feed him, water etc.
This would be the first time he will be home alone. Do you feel he can do ok with care or should he be put in a care facility? He has been left alone with the female for a couple of weeks but never by himself.
Thanks

Stray has moved in but he hates us!

by L.A. Lady
(California)

We were feeding an obviously stray, beautiful, seal-point Siamese cat for several months (we had papered the neighborhood with "found" notices but no replies). We were amazed he lasted so long outdoors as there are coyotes and wild dogs that come right up to the front door! Plus he has a lame front leg...anyway:

Three weeks ago he came in the house - he is fascinated with my indoor cat (they get along fine) - and hasn't left. He's never even gone near the front door.

He doesn't hide; he even lolls around in the middle of the floor when we have company. He plays with toys. He sleeps on my bed with my cat. We never had to introduce him to the litter box. In short, he acts like he's always been indoors.

The trouble is, when anybody moves, he runs out of the way and hisses if you approach him. He will take treats and lick whipped cream from our fingers, but we've never been able to touch him.

We (with great difficulty) managed to chase him into a carrier yesterday so that he could be neutered, but the vet couldn't examine him due to "extremely aggressive behavior".

We think he's about a year old. Is there some technique we can use to civilize him? Is this typical Siamese personality? Is there any hope for this cat?

nervousness

by Layla Jones
(Alabama)

I got a Seal Point Siamese from my parents who have had her since she was a kitten. She has lived indoors with 6 small dogs all her life. She is 2 years old. I brought her to my home where I have 2 other cats one is a year old and the other 4 months, they are both females. They don't seem bothered by her but she has been with me for 4 days and rarely comes out for food or water or to use the litter box. I'm worried for her health and nervousness...SHOULD I RETURN HER TO MY PARENTS OR WILL IT CAUSE FURTHER EMOTIONAL DAMAGES???

Resident female Siamese not eating since new kitty

by Judy
(USA/ NC)

We rescued a snowshoe kitten 4 weeks ago and she is still isolated in our back bathroom/bedroom. Our resident 10yr old female has pretty much stopped eating both her dry and wet foods. The only thing she will eat are treats. We have tried every brand of wet food out there and a new brand of dry. They have not met face to face yet but of course the resident knows she is there. We have tried different plates and feeding her in a different place...nothing seems to work.
I know she is manipulating us and is angry about the new kitten. She has lived with other cats before with no problem but has been an only cat for about a year.
Any ideas on how to get her to eat? She is always near me during the day...just sits and stares at me. I think I am glad she can't verbalize what she is thinking? lol

Siamese cat to get along with a Tonkinese kitten

How can we get our 3 year old female Siamese cat to get along with our 3 month Tonkinese kitten. Our Siamese will come inside and hiss and growl continually at the kitten. We keep them separate at night by placing the kitten in the spare room with litter box and food. The female siamese then has free rein of the house at night and can come and go as she pleases. She still sleeps beside me at night on the bed.

The little kitten just wants to play with the siamese? This has been going on for a week now. Any suggestions?

Partner potential compatibilty for half Siamese?

by Gabrielle Jordan
(Norwich, UK)

Lola (4) has recently lost her half Siamese litter mate sister, Zsa ZSa. I'm very sad but she appears to be carrying on as normal. Zsa Zsa liked to cuddle up with me & her sister, but Lola could only take so much, & would then leave, or spit & leave. They played alot together (use catflap freely)& I would love to get another cat or kitten, preferably part Oriental. I know it can go badly wrong & I'm seeking advice on what age/gender/breed might be most compatible with Lola. Lola is attached to me but not really connected. She is excited (her tail tauntly flagged up), not calmed, when I stroke her & won't stay long in my lap. Sometimes she sleeps at the end of my bed, sometimes not. I've just heard of a pair of Siamese, her age, needing rehoming. Could Lola handle two, with tactful introductions? Would a kitten, or pair of kittens be better?
Thank you for any advice.

angry siamese

by Jenna Pilkington
(Pottstown, PA USA)

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?!?!?!?!
