Siamese Cats – Do You Really Want One?

Are you ready and able to welcome Siamese cats into your heart and home?

Where should you start?

With Personality Plus. Siamese cats can be quite high maintenance, more so than most house cats. Don’t let that put you off, because when it comes to pure breeds, they aren’t higher maintenance. In fact, they are much less of a problem than some long-haired breeds like the Persian cat, which require daily brushing and combing.

What does “high maintenance” mean? Unlike the Persian cat, Siamese cats have a short close coat and although many love to brush they can groom their own coats. This also applies to the long-haired Siamese, who are called Balinese or Javanese – they easily have a long, silky coat.

Where they need more attention is in the mental and psychological realm. Without this attention, they will become unhappy, and an unhappy Siamese cat causes a problem. Picture this: ripped furniture and drapes, area marking and self harming by pulling their own fur on, just for starters.

How does this affect your decision to buy the most seductive, cute and naughty Siamese kitten?

If you’re out for hours on end, plan to either have more than one Siamese or make real efforts to keep your cat entertained: That means special toys, treats hidden around the house, or special sleeping quarters by the window.

When you get home, plan to spend some quality time together. It will allow you to re-associate and your cat will forget your time away.

Another option is the Balinese or Javanese, which also belong to the Siamese cat family. Some breeders say that with a Balinese or Javanese you can get a Siamese character, but generally a more easy-going nature. If you plan to stay at work all day, you might consider the long-haired Balinese over the standard Siamese.

Take some time to think about what you want from your cat.
If the idea of ​​a cat always hanging around wanting attention and growling loudly in that piercing Siamese voice gets on your nerves even as you’re reading this, then this might not really be the best option for you.

Do you have a busy family life? Do you really have the time, energy, and inclination to take care of your Siamese’s emotional needs? Remember that a single Siamese that gets ignored will be antisocial and get on your nerves even more – that’s a tough thing to do.

Finally, all cats cost money, and vet bills and food and housing costs quickly add up. It would be very sad if you had to give up your cat because you couldn’t keep her. If your job takes you away all the time, owning a Siamese probably isn’t a good idea. Take some time to think about it, before you buy your Siamese cat!

If you still think that you can take care of and provide for these most special and interesting cats, then read on – because Siamese cats are really different.

Most owners agree that Siamese cats are special. They look different, with their dark feet and faces and blue eyes. And they have a distinctive voice – even those who don’t like cats can recognize the Siamese.

Siamese cats are on average smarter than most cats, although you can get exceptions.

You will be enchanted by their antics. Although they are elegant in appearance, they are often very clumsy. Make sure to connect all the jewels! Who knows – they might choose to be clumsy just to get your attention. They get warmer than other cats when you hug them and love the heat. These cooler beds are very popular in cooler climates. And if you can provide them with entertainment by running safe outdoors, they will love you for it.

Siamese cats can’t see like other cats at night although watch this to not cause any harm. Also, not all Siamese are noisy, although some can howl home. Make sure you have nice neighbors who don’t wonder why your cat is torturing!

If you have more than one Siamese, you will probably see that unlike more independent breeds, they will love to sleep in a big mound together, which is another good reason to own more than one. Occasionally, like any other cat, they will dislike their housemates and never fall asleep soon, but this is rare.

Are you still fascinated by Siamese cats? Still convinced this is the perfect match for you?

This is good news, because the Siamese is a truly special friend.

A word of warning before you buy: It’s the same for all breeds, you should choose your cat carefully. To avoid heartache, do your research properly and buy from a reputable breeder. After all, the last thing you want is a sick or weak kitten.

Still not put off? Then you will be rewarded with the special sweet treat that this breed is famous for.
