Ihave a 13 yr. old female siamese cat who is a joy to me.Recently someone put an ad in the newspaper stating that they have a free female siamese cat to give to the first taker.The former owner was getting rid of the cat as they were getting a dog.My daughter took the cat with the vet,s papers on her spaying,front declawing and michrochip surgery.The cat was 3 years old, when she took in the cat.However, after 8 weeks in my daughters home, the cat would not come out of hiding, and would look to go hide anytime anyone in the family approached her. I suggested bring her to my small apartment, thinking that the confines were so small that she would adapt easier. It's not working too well as both of the cats are scared of each other;could it be the fact that they are both female? Also I notice on the young one that in the bright light of my living room, her pupils stay openwide ,unlike my other cat, so consequently she looks black eyed not blue eyed,Is this a condition? I've only had the cat for 2 weeks and wonder am I not giving her enough time to get adjusted?Sometimes she'll come to me when I call her and she'll let me pet her for a second then turns around and hisses then slaps at me.She is constantly thumping her tail to let me know that she is angry over some unknown reason. Do you thimk she may need a sedative or something to calm her down? She is a beautiful cat and don't want to lose her, so I would appreciate any help in this matter.
