My first Siamese
by Rebecca harding
I adopted a Chocolate Point Siamese from the shelter almost two years ago. When I first seen her she didn't want to come to me or anything, soon as I started messing with another cat she came up and clawed the other cat (like she was picking me and the other cat couldn't have me). It took her awaile to come around and come out her shell. I have no idea what she has been through or if she has trust issues, but I still can't pick her up (If I do pick her up and she trys to get down 5 seconds later). Like I said its been two years since we had her almost three now. I have read everything on this site about siamese cats and she does everything they do except the fact I can't hold her for too long. So my question is, Could this be normal behavior for a siamese that has been displaced and placed from shelter to shelter then a home?
