Siamese

A pet owner's guide to Siamese cats

These popular Oriental cats have an unmistakable appearance marked by a large, wedge-shaped head and a long, narrow, wiry body. Siamese cats are among the oldest recognized breeds in the world and are informally considered the "royal cats of Siam," now Thailand.

History

Siamese cats first appeared outside their native land in 1884, when the British Consul-General of Siam returned to his native England with a breeding pair. By the 1950s, they were the darlings of cat shows across the Western Hemisphere, and generation after generation of selective breeding contributed to the familiar elongated form of the modern Siamese cat.

Appearance

Size: Siamese cat breeders expect healthy adult males to weigh between 9 and 14 pounds. Female adults average 6 to 10 pounds.

Coat: With a fine, glossy, short coat, Siamese kittens and cats are noted for being largely hypoallergenic, much like the Sphynx cat.

Eyes & Ears: A Siamese cat has distinctive, almond-shaped blue eyes. The pointed ears are wide-based and large, ranking among the breed's most instantly recognizable physical characteristics.

Tail: Siamese cats display a tapered, thin, pointy, whip-like tail.

Disposition

Siamese kittens normally form a strong, lifelong bond with a single person in the household. They tend to be vocal and have a low-pitched and booming meow that's often likened to the sound of a baby crying. The breed thrives on human attention and companionship, and is noted for being intelligent and playful, even into late adulthood.

Health and Care

Grooming: The Siamese has little in the way of cat grooming needs. Though it enjoys being brushed, its short fur generally looks after itself. Expect headaches when bathing this breed – it doesn't care much for water.

Activity Level: Siamese cat breeders recommend homes that have ample indoor and outdoor space, as these animals love to roam and are fairly active.

Health Problems: Some vets contend that this breed is particularly sensitive to anesthetics. A Siamese kitten is also especially prone to upper respiratory tract infections, so be sure to provide a dry and warm place for the young cat to rest during wet or cool weather. Ensure your kitten has had all of its recommended cat vaccinations if you're buying from a breeder, rescue center or private party.

Average Lifespan: Siamese cats live an average of 15 to 20 years.

Find Siamese Kittens for Sale

Breeders offering Siamese kittens for sale will normally charge roughly $200 to $400 for a cat of certified parentage. Even though these cats are one of the most affordable breeds, some people prefer to save money and do a good deed by taking home an adult cat from a Siamese rescue center. Local animal control authorities can help you find resources in your area if you'd like to explore this option.

Perhaps you could send Mokey out my way for a little while so that she could take care of the very loud bird that was loud enough to wake the dead at 5:30 this morning and driving me completely and totally nuts! From the sounds of the TWEET, TWEET, TWEET! that had to be one extremely large bird!

The person who anewrsed first has all the personality information i was going to give. They are known for being center of attention. That's the only reason I won't get one because I already have a 3 year old that would be heartbroken. Also, call to shelters or look at websites like petfinder.com where you can search local shelters. The ones in Austin are priced the same as other cats and thus don't cost much more at all, but again if you go through a shelter they may be mixed, which won't be a problem unless you plan to breed.horsiechick04

My Siamese had kittens just over three weeks ago. The last day and a half I've noticed she isn't feeding them, and she's been trying to hide them all in different places around the room they are in. I keep putting them back into the very very large box they e been in for a while now. Why would she stop feeding them? Why is she hiding them? Specifically, the same one gets moved the most, I'm also concerned by the way she carries them. Sherlock them up whatever way she can, legs, belly, neck. Is there anything I can do? I've already purchased kitten formula, in case I need to start bottle feeding. Thank you

I NEED HELP!! I've been relentlessly searching the Internet for answers, and to be honest, my vet isn't being very helpful. My female siamese is just over one year old. She became pregnant with my male siamese. There were 6 kittens born ( this was her first and will be her only litter. Sadly one kitten passed away. 4 of them are thriving, and I am hand rearing one that is half the size of the others. He is improving. My concern is that all of their noses are quite red in color. Almost dark. Is this normal? I've noticed the tips of their ears are already developing a few gray hairs so I'm not sure if their noses are dark because they are developing or if it is something I need to be concerned about. Can anyone help me?

I would take her to the vet just to make sure shes alright. Hope this helps!
Posted by Hailey on March 06,2013 at 01:52 PM
That is just the way the breed is they may be flame point or red point look those up with both the breeds of your male and female mix breeds hope i could have helped! Im sorry for the loss of the little kitten:'(
Posted by Khaleesi1985 on March 06,2013 at 07:10 PM
Thank You! Turns out I was over reacting. All the kittens points are developing, black noses, very dark ears and tails. Thank you for the help, mom and dad are both seal point, by the looks of things I think all the kittens will be too, Thank you again!

Posted by Rebeka on November 03,2012 at 09:16 AM
I have a male siamese cat that I've recently adopted. I am wondering how I would tell if its a good idea to get him a companion. He came from a home where he had cat companions. I live in such a small appartment that I am worried that the cats will fight over space. Is this a valid concern? I want to get him another cat because he alwyas seems to be looking fors omething to do, and hes always chasing his tail aimlessly. I feel like he is constantly bored. He meows alot but I know this is common for a siamese. Are his other actions just typical of siamese or is he lonely? Thank you
Posted by Lou on November 26,2012 at 06:32 PM
Hi Rebeka, From experience siamese/oriental breeds are incredibly sociable and playful, and as such tend to do well with companions (particularly if you have to be out for prolonged periods during the day). I'd suggest a trial run - many rescue centers offer facilities where cats can be introduced to each other, this way you can see whether they'll be friends or not. As to the issue of space: we have a 3 bed apartment with no outdoor access, and our 2 siamese/oriental cats are perfectly happy in it. If yours is an indoor only situation too then it may be best to mention that at the rescue shelter, they'll help you pick a kitty that is used to and/or prefers indoors. Don't worry about space too much, if you find the right friend for your cat, they will both adapt (though they may playfully chase each other, or claim ownership of a toy or two lol). Yeah, the meowing is characteristic of the breed, and with a bit of practice you can have a full conversation with them (or maybe I'm just nuts lol). Chasing his tail isn't indicative of boredom, young cat's often go through a phase of tail-chasing. All in all, you know you're cat best, if you think he may be wanting a friend, there are plenty of rescue shelters who will help you find the right one. Hope this helps

JESSICA!! Please read this... I know you would like your cat to have her own kittens, but please consider adopting from a shelter or a rescue. I recently just got two beautiful Siamese kittens one from a shelter and one from a rescue and they are absolutely gorgeous. Currently around four million animals are put to sleep, about one every eight seconds, at the shelters each year. There are many gorgeous kittens at these shelters, and you can always find a Siamese only rescue, which saves two kitties lives. The one that you take home and the new one the rescue will get from the shelter to take the one you've adopted place. Plus why would you want to put your poor baby through the pain of giving birth. Also there can always be complications with pregnancy, and dont you want your baby to be with you as long as possible? Spaying her will also help to prevent uterine infections, breast and ovarian cancer... Which is fatal in 90% of all felines! I promise you will be able find some very cute Siamese kittens at your local shelter or a nearby rescue. If you would like my help I would be more than happy to help find you a cute or two, or as many as you would like. There are so many animals that need good homes out there and you would really be saving a life, not to mention prolonging the life of your fur baby. Also MOST IMPORTANTLY, it would put an end to that annoying howling that is keeping you awake at all hours of the night and keep your kitty from wanting to escape your house to go out and mate, and possibly not be able to find her way back home. My email is Daisie1936@aol.com, I'd be more than happy to help you find some kitties, answer any of your questions, or just talk about how cute Siamese are. Sorry this is so long, I'm just very passionate about this! Thanks for reading.

My Siamese Cat hasn't defecated in 5 days since giving birth. She eats and drinks normally, but I don't know if it's because she's turning everything to milk for the babies that hasn't pooped for days. Is this normal or should I already bring her to the vet? THANKS!!!
Posted by Caitlin on August 31,2012 at 09:40 AM
My simease cat keeps pooping and spraying in our sun porch. But we feed and give him water everyday and always has a clean litter box. What do I do to make him stop doing that in the sun porch? Please help!!!!
Posted by Jessica on August 09,2012 at 01:13 PM
I have a 9 month old chocolate tip siamese and she went into her first heat about two months ago and has not stopped meowing and howling ever since. Is there anybody out there that can give me advice on what to do to get her to stop. I do not want to have her spayed because we want to breed her eventually and keep the kittens in the family with us.
Posted by Hailey on March 06,2013 at 01:59 PM
Thats tippicaly common with siamese. you really cant stop it.
Posted by Geri on July 22,2012 at 10:49 AM
Miss Ming will be 17 in December. She had been doing well until the last month or two when I noticed she couldn't see well. I took her to the vet and we were referred to an eye specialist. Turns out she has hight blood pressure and was put on amlodipine. The amlodipine confused her and her sight did not get better with the meds so we stopped it. She is now blind. She seems to have adapted well to being blind but over the last 2 weeks she has started to poop outside the box. She is peeing in the box. The box is cleaned daily. It is a covered type box. I have no idea why she is pooping out of the box. She is lethargic and does not run around like she used to and I assume this is all part of becoming blind. Does anyone have any thoughts or similar circumstances?
Posted by william on October 23,2012 at 09:55 AM
My siamese male cat was put to sleep yesterday. Zues would have been 18 in two weeks. He was blind and deaf his last six months. He started pooping outside the box about a year before he died occasionally and got worse as he got older and started peeing out side the box later which got worse and the last two month didn't use the box. I had to supplement dry food with tuna packed in water. He ate and drank up to the end. He developed a runny nose which got worse over time and made it hard for him to breathe. To answer your question, it is part of old age. I don't think it will do anything but get worse. Depends on how bonded you are to him. My cat was my best friend and I saw him through until I knew it was time. Good luck.....

I will always regret the disparition of my Siamese male cat Motica. We will never forget him. People must understand the complexity of a Siamese cat. Uniqueness - is the only word to define a Siamese cat in my opinion. See the full story of Motica at http://www.motica-in-memoriam.com
Posted by Mia'sMom on June 26,2012 at 04:12 PM
I wonder why you would not spay your cat? There are so many siamese cats and kittens in shelters and rescues. Also you should have it checked for FIV and Felv , I hope you were up to date on her shots. I have had siamese cats for over 45 years of my life and have always adopted from shelters or rescues. I would not let my cats outside but I do have plenty of windows for them to look out of and perch's for them to climb. Over the past four years I have seen hugh increase of siamese and pure breed cats in the shelters, please look at adoption first before you buy. PS always fix your kitty...
Posted by katz on July 16,2012 at 04:33 AM
you should let your cat outside if u want to keep it healthy and strong if u dont want it to wander around the area build an outdoor cattery the cattery will allow the cat to get its exercise while keeping it safely inside your property it not only protects your cat but the surrounding animals, such as birds and smaller animals, protection as well
Posted by sapphire on June 24,2012 at 06:34 AM
Oh my.! Please get him to the vets. My chocolate point was the best cat, his name was Mai Tai and I just had to put him down. He lived to be 17 then he started losing weigh, not eating and then no energy. Turns out he had cancer. So sad for me. I still have another girl and she is Burmese and will be 20 in December. She's very lonely and cries alot looking for him. So my opinion is get your kitty to the vets. Might be something they can do for it and live a happy life with you!!!!! <3

I have a 6 yr old female siamese cat..typically she only went into heat every 1-2 months now thats older she can go several without t a full heat cycle.. She seems very healthy eats well, drinks water, loves to play and speed around the house especially after gets out of litter box. Is this type of heat cycle normal considering she seems and acts perfectly normal?

Hello :-) I've had my siamese Chloe for almost3 years now. I got her from a friend for free When she was 6 weeks old. She is now almost 3 never spayed and just found out she is pregnant. She must have snuck out somehow. Anyways my husband and i are very prepared to take on the responsibility of these kittens but we honestly do not know what to expect and this will be her first and only litter. Oh and idk why all you people think that this breed is so high maintenance... they really aren't!
Posted by Sher on January 21,2012 at 05:37 AM
Hi people, i found siamese kitten outside in mi. it is winter. She was starving and has been wounds on her. I have other kitties. All my cats have been rescued from a terrible life outside trying to survive. Took trixie too a local vet, i hope she will be fine. I wish anybody wanting any animal will consider the long term commitment. This a wonderful little cat with trust issues. I can't believe someone just abandon this baby. She has sores on her trying to live with big cats and whatever else she came across outside. My point is whatever kind of cat, they need love and attention besides food water and shelter. Please consider the long term.

I got my first Siamese (male) when I was in my early 20's) when my wife gave me one for my birthday. His name was 'Boots' (how unoriginal)... and he lived and brought much joy to our home during his stay with us. He lived 18 years. We were crushed of course when he passed and my wife so smitten by the loss and thinking that no other could replace the character of the first - found it difficult to think about the possibility of another. Three years later we purchased another 'character' who's name is 'Ozzie'. This beautiful little guy is completely different from Boots. We think that is one of the greatest things about this breed - the character and the unique-ness of it. The other traits such as loyalty, bonding (primarily to one human) and family affection exist of course... one of the great traits of this particular breed. I mentioned differences between the two and for instance Ozzie loves to go for walks on a leash, but Boots would never have allowed it. Those of you considering taking you Siamese for a walk should make sure to get the type of harness that goes around the sholders and chest - NOT a collar (a collar is not a harness). We couldn't find one large enough (Ozzie weighs in at about 14 lbs of muscle) so we bought one for 'small dogs' and it fits quite well. I must admit that I somewhat tricked him the first time I slipped on the harness as immediately after slipping it on, I picked him up in my arms, carried him outside and set him down on the lawn. Ozzie had just turned 1 year at the time. His shock was overcome by natural curiosity and he quickly forgot about the harness. He absoulutely loves his walks. All summer long it bacame a ritual to take him for his walk... there was no way he wouldn't let us know that "it was a requirement". He would paw at the door handle with both paws and I'm inclined to think that if his paws were bigger - and he had an opposable thumb - he'd open that door all by himself. And so he would let us know his intention. He wants to go for his walk after being cooped up all day. The other 'ritual' is that when he comes in (after removing the harness) is to request a wire brush - brush down. He'll actually lay on one side for a while (during the brush-down), then get up and switch sides so that he gets brushed equally on each side. What a character indeed. So that he wouldn't get frustrated about not being able to turn the door handle we purchased one of those rope bound scratching posts (it's actually flat) that one can hang from the door handle. It had a feather toy on a spring on it too but that lasted all of five minutes and was off the spring and on the floor. I replaced the feather with a small bell. Now he will bat the bell back and forth like a boxer delivering a hearty combination of blows after which he will pause, look at both of us in turn and if ignored - go back to smacking that bell like a punching bag - until 'we humans get it and let him out onto the screened in porch or take him for his walk' Actually, we sometimes figure that from his perspective - we humans are pretty easy to train :), One of his most enjoyable toys - was one he chose himself. My wife had one of those small but thick cosmetic brushes - we buy them from Avon (they're about 2.5 inches long and about 1 inch thick) and have a black 1 inch plastic handle - the rest being a natural fur - camel hair or something. He does eat (or chew) on the fur - so it's important not to provide a brush with a human made furry bit. Anyway, he grabbed one from my wife and threw it on the floor and jumped down after it and looked up at her. As she went to grab it, he grabbed it - and ran. She chased him around the house a bit before finally giving up. Ozzie loves to throw the brush into the air and hit it with a paw on the way down. And since we have hardwood floors, it 'bangs' when the plastic in the handle hits to floor - I'm sure that has facination for him too. The only drawback is that on weekends - when we want to sleep in... he won't let us. He'll go find that brush, bring it upstairs onto the bed and 'flip' it over the edge and onto the floor. We can but smile through our sleep fogged anoyance at the distruption - he just wants to hang out with mom and dad is all. I read a post above somewhere where someone cautions not to hit these beautiful animals and I couldn't agree more. What ca they do to require such a thing anyway. It's a two way relationship and as the human must be analytical and understanding - and these little furry bits of love are very intelligent and trainable. I hope this post results in a loving home for one or more of these wonderful creatures.

I have a siamese kitten, he is 8 months old. He is very domonating and wants what he wants now. He will nip us on the back of the leg (not hard) if you ignore him. Yesterday I was moving rooms around, he went and pissed on my bed. Can enyone give me a veiw on why that may have been as he has a kitty litter tray and a doggy door to go outside.
Posted by siamese cat breeder on September 13,2012 at 08:08 AM
you should breed from her now, a siamese queen should only be allowed to call maximum of 3 times before visiting a good stud do not put her on the pill before her first litter this can affect her breeding and cause an infection, she is not too young to be bred from at 9 months plus
Posted by Robbie on October 09,2011 at 02:16 AM
He wanted attention...so he pissed on your bed for attention...I had a dog crap on my bed for the same reason...he didn't need to use the restroom at that time....I woulnd't worry unless he does it all the time even when getting attention...

hi, I´ve got a Seal Point Siamese cat. She´s 5 years old. She used to be quite early waking us up. But eversince we moved to a different country she wakes us up every morning between 4 and 6 o´clock. She´s outside at night. I´ve tried leaving her inside at night but then she wakes us up at 4, ven if i feed her and put her outside she´ll miauw and scream until we let her in, this could be hours! Also she´s not allowed in the bedroom anymore (she used to be allowed). I really don´t know what to do anymore. Also I tried to keep her outside during the day while we were in, but then she screams that she wants to go inside. Has anybody got any tips? Pleas help!!!!
Posted by siamese cat breeder on September 13,2012 at 08:10 AM
siamese hate to be alone, this is attention seeking from her human family. get another siamese asap, there wil be a few days of hissing and spitting and then best buddies, playing, sleeping etc together. what is she doing out at night, you silly person, she is lonely
Posted by LYNN on June 11,2012 at 04:54 PM
HI Monique, My name is Lynn, I have a Siamese that I rescued at 4 weeks old, I had to feed him with special mothers milk by bottle from the pet store. He is now 14 years old! My family grew up with dogs (brothers alargic to cats) so I thought I would teach Frankie with my teaching skills of my family dogs. So Frankie is a Siamese, but I taught him to sit, fetch, and he shakes both paws on command, and is not vocal like they say, he is a very happy cat, they are a one person cat (he has loved to sleep on my head/pillow at night since he was a kitten) I worked at The Anti Cruelty Shelter here in Chicago for almost 2 years, mostly with cats, so that is my background. What I would say to you first NEVER let her outside not good, they can catch fleas, disease, attacked by other animals the list goes on and on, especially if she is front declawed, they have no defense., indoor cats live longer, you can buy wheat grass in the produce section at the grocery store for her to eat her greens inside, that's what I get Frankie. Another thing is no food outside, plus she is all confused, her time clock is off from the move too! Next, LET HER the bedroom, she's use to it, remember they are a one person cat, she misses you, didn't it take you some time for the time change, and new house! SHE JUST WANTS TO BE WHERE YOU ARE! I also have training working at the shelter for socialization,behavior,grooming,medication,feeding,watering,and most important, loving. Have you thought of getting her a friend,she's young, someone to keep her company . You have options before committing to adopt, go to your local, they all have a foster program, which is a great thing (cats and dogs) You can foster and return or fall in love and foster and rescue(keep) Hope I helped a little, If you would like to reply(I'll probably forget this website) My email (franklyn1360@yahoo.com) Good Luck
Posted by Robbie on October 09,2011 at 02:19 AM
Probably wakes you up around 4 or 6 because in the original time zone it was probably later and her clock didn't change to the new time zone so she still is waking you when she thinks she should...she wants in the room with you that is why she screams outside all the time she wants attention

What do you call a cat that has siamese markings has a full head and weighs 11.5 lbs. I rescued him from a animal shelter about a year ago, has taken him that long to adjust after being in the cage so long. He is still a little mean and likes to bite, has gotten better with lots of love and trust, I can actually rube his belly. Is in bed w/me every night loves outside, favorite words are outside, wanty somethin somthin and lets go nite nite. He has been fixed and we have a cat door, but he prefers to stay in and sleep.
Posted by Janix on March 30,2011 at 02:21 PM
I have a siamese, but he doesn't look traditional one, he has a full face and a large body, but has all the markings of a siamese. What kind of cat is this?
Posted by siamese cat breeder on September 13,2012 at 08:12 AM
get another siamese, he is lonely siamese are not one off cats, they need another one or even better two siamese to play and eat together
Posted by Catlover on August 16,2011 at 06:41 PM
this is normal. the cat might come from a cat with siamese background. i got a black cat from neighbours when i was 2 and she come from a siamese background. she had either black kittens or siamese. the kittens were either long haired and fluffy (some were black and some were siamese) or sleek and short haired (some were black and some were siamese). black was usually dominant. she had died but i have one of her children as a house cat and she is fluffy and long haired yet siamese with piercing blue eyes. she does not have the attitude of a siamese cat though she is very lazy and kind but gets mad when you dont feed her.

What kind of home would you provide for the baby, if I gave you one? Could you please desribe; I need to find a reliable home for 1 of my kittens.

I have a flame tip siamese cat 3 yrs old...very sweet and loving, I have a question...why is she loosing her teeth??? she has lost four and she eats real good..and gums look good, my vet said she thought it was there nature?? Does anyone know if this is true? And does she get new teeth?? Thanks so concerned
Posted by Maureen Marsh on March 23,2011 at 02:39 PM
I lost my flame point/red point in November. He was 18 years old, and had NEVER lost a tooth that I know of since kitten teeth. Hardly ever needed a vet trip, even, which is a good thing because he hated it. Where did you get yours? Is there a flame point breeder on the Front Range that you know of?
Posted by wayne on January 05,2011 at 11:47 PM
Yes, they lose their little teeth but they return. Its wierd. I had three siamese pure bred and I just lost one of them after 21 years and was heart broken. I am now looking for another male kitten. If you know of someone who is a breeder in or around San Antonio Texas area, please let me know. Hope the info helps.

Not being funny love, but why did u let your cat get pregnant in the first place if you don't know what your doing ? And why havnt you done research as soon as you found out she was pregnant ? Cats who have litters have years taken off of their lives. And its not fair to put a cat through this if they weren't planned and you havnt a clue what your doing. I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but if you love your cat and I'm presumming she is an outdoor cat if u weren't planning the litter ? Then u should of had her spayed. Hope mum an kittens did ok as this post was a long time ago ?

Do you know if these cats like tight spaces or if they enjoy a big room, you know being roomie?
Posted by Jennifer on July 18,2010 at 05:40 PM
I learnt with my pregnant cat that she loves to roam around. She hates small spaces. She got out and became pregnant. my advice is that you should have alot of room for siameses cats.

I have been a Siamese owner for 35 years. Let me give you some of the 'basics' regarding this beautiful breed......do not buy one under 4 months-they physically mature slower then the average domestic cat and need mommy longer, the must have a WARM and DRY environment..at least+76 in order to not catch a upper- respitory cold, infection or pnemonia, they are height lovers and must have high perches, a jungle gym is also advised as these cats are the 'jack Russel' of the cats,they must have a varied diet of cooked fish/chicken/turkey(in water only) and the best dry kibble(according to age) that you can afford, fresh cool water 3 times a day, clean the litter 2x a day, 1 litter box per cat, they are also trainable regarding ..fetch..hide-n-seek..speak..and your every day commands-ie...no, down,come(in training your Siamese NEVER HIT YOUR SIAMESE CAT..these cats are very sensitive like a child and will/can hold grudges which result in destruction of the hitters personal items/property..ask my hubby..lol, also, the Siamese can also be trained to walk with a harness and leash while out of doors and NEVER leave them unattended as they always get into trouble if left alone for one second while leashed, do not require them to wear a collar in doors( it will make them resentful of collar/harness if they aren't going out for a stretch on the lawn/patio )and these cats should strictly be an indoor family member and should be treated as such, do not allow your cat to be on any lawn if it has been treated for pesticides/fertilised/seeded etc as this can be fatal transferred from paws to mouth, take shoes off out of home and either carry in and immed. put in closet or leave foot wear out of doors to avoid poisoning your cat.... These Siamese are a loyal, beautiful and extremely intelligent and very trainable addition to any family...pss they can also be "potty trained for the 'big people' toilet" so that =nooo litter box.=) Currently I have a F, Apple Head Tortie(mom=apple seal pt and dad=apple flame pt)-body is built like a jaguar and a F, Wedge Head Chocolate Point(both parents are same as kitten)body is built like a cheetah. My females will kitten in the spring of 2011. I am using an outside stud to preserve their current genetics and physical structure and outward appearance. I breed them as beautiful , exotic family members with a pedigree...not for the money.I hope this helps those of you who had some questions...................

Hi, I am looking for two siamese kittens. I like siamese because they have shorter hair than most cats, and I am alergic to longer haired cats. Do you have or know of anyone sellilng siamse kittens. Thankyou for your response.

Hi Lisa, your post of info is very interesting. Thanks for sharing your experience. I have a new 3 month female applehead Siamese kitten. I love her and she's got so much character already. She's doing well on her grain free kibble diet (Now! Brand). I plan to have her spayed hopefully before she has her first heat cycle, but I don't want to rush it because she's very small for her age (2.5 pounds, but healthy as confirmed by our vet). What age do Siamese kittens typically mature enough for safe spaying?

Hello.. I am intrigued by the fact that you can potty train this breed of cat. I am curious to find out how. I have had Siamese in the past and have never done this. Would like to learn how. Getting a 11 week old Siamese from the shelter tomorrow. I know the cat is not pure breed but would love to find out more about my cat and what gene the cat comes from. Thanks for any answers you have.

We've had our seal point siamese for six years. He has begun using the carpet for his toilet (urinating and defacating). I thought is was for attention (we have 2 pups as well) so, I beefed up his 1on1 time with each family member (four kids). This did not help. I do not want to ge rid of him! At this point is has become unsanitary, and my house reeks. We have to replace all of the carpet in our house and the baseboard in our dining room. Help! What can we do to save our cat??! He is a part of our family.

Thank you for your very helpful info. We have a female Siamese cat, don't think she's full Siamese, and we have a male part Siamese.
Posted by Gena on October 28,2010 at 07:26 PM
It sounds as though you love your cats! I would like more information on the siamese kittens you have, or will be having for sale. I had a beautiful siamese that died during surgery. Since then, I have learned that some kittens/cats could have the disease "Pica", caused from being weaned too early. Is this true? Please e-mail me with any information. From Texas, Gena P.S. Where is your cattery located?

I enjoyed your description of the Siamese. I have had them and enjoyed their demenor. Recently, lost my siamese cat (Miss Woo) to my ex husband. Unfortunately, I couldn't have a pet in the apartment I moved in with my daughter. My ex is very attached to Miss Woo and her compainion Peete (Jack Russell), both my pets. He is not parting with them now that I have a house and can care for them. Miss Woo & Peete run through the house playing hide & seek, and tag. They snuggle together and she (Miss Woo) will call for Peetie when he is outside. Miss Woo, who is now 10 years old believes Peetie belongs to her. Peetie came to us when Miss Woo was 6 years old and are just comical to watch. I do miss them so. However, I do get visitations but really miss my cat. Miss Woo was a neck warmer and loved to snuggle. I would be very interested in a siamese kitten as I would have a loving & caring home. Please contact me if in spring or when your kittens are ready to leave the nest as I would love to have one. Sincerely, Rena

I purchased my first cat I named her My-lynn, I became disabled in 1990 and in 1994 I decided on a siamese She was so itellegent. She lived 17yrs. She was my companion, my friend and my baby. We went everywhere together. She was so good when I put her in my big bag no one ever knew she was at the movies or at a restaurant even Disney World. We even took her to the hospital whenever we could. Sherstood me and I understood her. I never knew any animal could talk. Whenever she was home alone when someone would call, as soon as she heard my voice on the answering machine she would jump on and many of my friends have had a good laugh because she would talk up a storm. On 4/9/10 I had to put her down, she had renal failure and only weighed 4 lbs. I still cry everyday because I miss her. I would love to get another siamese but I can't really afford fianancially and physically to do that but I wanted to tell anyone thinking of buying a beautiful Siamese that they are loyal,smart, a little demanding but they aren't sharing my space, They are allowing us to share theirs.

There are only two original Siamese cats and the one they are talking about is not the of original Siamese cat this Cat that they are talking about is been generically bread for show cats the bloodlines of very important for breeding the cats the purpose of doing that is to make money and not for the cats will being most of time is cats wind up dying at one of two months later the ones that do live usually live two to five years was the do live longer which is very few may live as long as 14 years all of these cats usually wind up with sickness or illness I am a pet owner that experience these problems and and started doing some research on this all you need to do is go to a search window type in what did your original Siamese cat look like you'll get links explaining what they look like and basically alidade generically which changed and what happens to them this is done purposely for money the breeders may make money and all industry along with veterinarians make money they'll almost wiped out the breed for the gree of money I was not aware of this until My cat recently died from kidney failure the original Siamese cats there only to of them they do not look like the ones they created which are sometimes called needle nose or weds they are beautiful looking cats and only bread for greed of money and not taking in the consideration of all the illness and suffering that the cats go through to genetic altering of the breed please anybody read article looking into this is really considered animal cruelty and should be stopped for the rich lowlifes that to this thank-you for taking the time to read this
