Lonely? Siamese

Hi. Sadly, my 9yr old chocolate Siamese boy suddenly lost his brother to acute renal failure. I’m wondering if I should get him a new pal sooner rather then later.any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Lonely Siamese
by: Lynn

My very first Siamese was a Seal Point female. At first, she was the only cat, and she loved it. Then I got other cats. She hated them, and they tolerated her. Her name was "Pudge" and she wanted her humans for herself, and was very jealous of the other cats. Siamese are VERY social, but they are social to their humans.

You know your cat better than anyone. And if he is happy the way things are... then its probably you who wants another cat... lol!

I have 5 cats. And 3 of them are really close... except for my Lynx Point Siamese... she would be happy being the only cat.

I’ve been reading too much. Cats loathe change. We know this. The loss of a brother is change. Stressful. Getting Oscar a new kitten is also change.... strdssful? He doesn’t seem depressed. In fac, he hasn’t even looked for his brother. More clingy and affectionate—Imagaing that. Is the kitten for me because "I" miss seeing them cuddled together??? Would Oscar be happy with a new buddy or stressed?...

Do let Oscar stay alone
by: Anonymous

I would get a Male Siamese kitten. Oscar is still young enough to play and have fun!

The reason why I would get a boy is because I think boys are more loving and affectionate.


Ps l have two seal point Siamese

I understand how you feel. It is not in their nature for a Siamese to be alone, they are much too social and loving for that. A young female sounds like a great idea. Your 9-year-old boy has plenty of happy years ahead of him.

Thank you Lyn. Absolutely awful. Don’t want my boy to be depressed. Was thinking about a young, small female. Would love a Siamese kitten but don’t know if I could handle it. Oscar is very active tho. The brothers were companions for a 13yrold Oriental Blue threat lost his pal 9 yrs ago. They made him very happy in his last years. I suppose I should rake some time but hate the thought of Oscar being all alone all day.

So sorry for your loss
by: Lynn

That has to be a terrible loss for both of you. I always feel that having more than one cat is a good thing. It's just that these two grew up together, and knew each other for a very long time.

I would suggest getting a kitten or younger cat. Something that would not be a threat. Though not all my cats were kittens when they were introduced and they adapted eventually.

On the other hand, a kitten or juvenile can be very hyper and very playful and my overwhelm and older cat.

I think it depends on the personality of your Siamese.
