My love for the Siamese cat started as a young girl when we acquired some seven Siamese cats from a Breeder, a close friend who lived next door. Since then my love for these beguiling bundles of fur have been a large part of my everyday life. Although the Siamese may not be for everyone, most people who have owned this dog like cat at some point in their life can attest that there is no cat like the Siamese. They steal your hearts with their uncanny ability to connect to their owners. Siamese cats are famously known amongst Cat fanciers and lovers, for their clear vivid deep blue eyes which they use to expressively communicate with and enchant the hearts of anyone who looks their way. The gaze may be alert or full of cheekiness. Being a natural breed, the Traditional Siamese cat has very few health problems and live a long healthy life, very often living into their late teens or early twenties. Their dog-
I am often asked the question whether adopting littermates are better than one kitty. While humans can offer a great deal of love and nurturing, there is a special type of feline companionship and interaction that felines crave for that cannot be replicated by human beings. This principle equally applies to humans. They need their own kind. The feline to feline bond is very apparent when you watch them sleeping together or grooming each other's faces, or protecting each other against other enemies or grieving the loss of their kitty companion. A related question might be: What about a new kitten to help an older cat endure the loss of their old companion? There is a special bond between two older cats that is equal to two elderly people who have lived together for many years. When their companion leaves they feel completely lost. They will grieve, often giving up. Like Grandparents, their bodies, that once were vibrant, are old and weary from age. They prefer to watch their grandchildren do those activities they once were able to do. This is the same for older cats, they are no longer physically youthful or mentally able, but love to watch little ones run flip and play. However, in the context of older cats, I suggest two kittens instead of one. While the older cat may receive the mental stimulation and entertainment they need, very much like going to the movies, kittens need reciprocal simulation from another kitty of equal energy, creating a peer-
THE PERILS OF BACKYARD BREEDERS
As breeder, I hear of and am aware of many poor breeding ethics practices by "backyard" breeders who sell through pet stores, local papers or on Hoobly or Craiglist selling supposedly "purebred registered cats". These places are breeding grounds for backyard breeders, kitty mills and even Internet scams. As stated on my home page, there is vast difference between a "cat registered" at a cat club and a legitimate registered purebred pedigree cat at well established Internationally recognised Cat Registry. These are worlds apart. Additionally, I often receive calls from impulsive kitten buyers who need to adopt a kitten for a special occasion or present. Kittens are not toys that are simply purchased, without adequate research into the breeder, or hand picked from supermarket shelves. Often these buyers end up buying kittens from backyard breeders because they acted on impulse or would rather cut corners by paying less. The kitten adoption process should be thought out carefully, since this will be a 18-
Backyard Breeders tend to:
1. Sell kittens under 7-
2. Sell unregistered Siamese kittens with no pedigree knowledge. For this reason, the issue of inbreeding can be of a concern.
Or sell kittens “registered” with unknown/discreditable/disreputable online clubs and registries that keep no prior pedigree information.
3. Breed cats, but are not members of a cat registering body and do not have a cattery prefix.
3. Describe their motive for breeding: "fun", "good for kids", or by "accident".
4. Does not screen buyers and seldom refuses to sell, even if buyer is unsuitable.
5. Has purchased, at some point, a kitten as a pet with no breeding rights, but is deceitfully breeding illegally against a contractual agreement.
6. Backyard breeders also tend to feed their cats cheap cat food, and disregard the nutritional cost to their kittens.
7. Ignorance of selective breeding goals, and techniques, and lack of familiarity with the breed standard of the type of cat being bred.
Has no understanding or concern with genetics, pedigree bloodlines, or hygienic breeding environment.
8. No concern for the future or welfare of individual kitten(s) once they leave to their new home.
Does not use limited registration option or concern for spay/neuter contract to guard against the breeding of sub-
9. Sell multiple sub-
10. Can not provide references from previous happy kitten buyers.
11. Little or no kitten socialization.
12. Often come with no written Health & Genetic Guarantee.
13. Typically sell sick kittens, leaving the new owner with the burden of ongoing veterinarian expenses.
While these kittens may be less expensive than purchasing from a reputable breeder, you generally also get a lot less in return. Kittens sold by backyard breeders usually cannot be registered or shown at cat shows since registration paperwork and pedigree information cannot be obtained, a necessary way of identify a true pedigree cat from a non pedigree cat. If you choose to buy from such “breeders” you are encouraging the ongoing dishonest and unethical practice of backyard breeding.
If such a socially enriched environment does not exist they may resort to mischievous behaviour and other social problems may result from the inevitable boredom. Although the Siamese is a cat, don't be easily fooled. These creatures, behave more like young puppies. As kittens, they require proper training and discipline. Firm boundaries need to be established if they are to grow into well adjusted behaved cat. The Siamese cat can be trained to play fetch or even to walk on a harness. Their love for heights will quickly make them shoulder buddies, riding for long periods and enjoying the aerial tour. Providing them with a good, tall, sturdy cat tree or somewhere high to perch will provide your beloved feline a safe place to take a nap or to survey the area. Siamese cats are expressive talkers yet only talk to you when they feel they have something important to say. If they are in a good mood, than expect great levels of affection, but if they are in a bad mood, well that's another story. They love to follow you around the house, watching you work, moving from room to room close to your heels. No other cat has a mind of its own like the Siamese. Like Dogs they are very territorial of their space and towards their favourite human of which they choose.
The Siamese cat has great sense ability and can easily sense your every mood from sadness to sickness. They will quickly jump on your lap to comfort you through tears or sadness by rubbing their head on your face and licking your tears away. They will lay next to you for hours comforting you with their warmth and purrs, never leaving your side. The Siamese cat loves children, especially if they were brought up with children. They have a special understanding and gentleness towards children, retrieving their claws when ever they are around them. They are loyal companions that your child will never forget, also making them entertaining playmates! Many dog owners has taken the Siamese into their prejudices heart. They have been known to wait patiently and come running, like a dog, to the door when their human family returns home. The Siamese acclimates well with dogs, especially if raised with them, they will become lifelong friends and will grieve at the loss of their friend. The Siamese have been known to protect with puffing tails, and flying claws their small or tiny dog companion against a larger and aggressive dog that would try to harm them.
Due to the fact that the Siamese cat is an intelligent and less independent breed, they need a healthy level of human or kitty interaction. The lack of human or kitty interaction can lead to a defensive fight or flight survival mentality, depression or a lack of appetite which can lead to destructive habits. The Siamese cat typically has a very loud cat voice, and is very vocal, with a high range of sounds. Do not get a Siamese cat if you want a docile and quiet cat. They are demanding and require proper discipline when they are young, very similar to that of a puppy. Only choose the Siamese if you are prepared to be patient and willing to share your lap, your bed covers, and do not mind their endless mischievous/curious nature along with energy that gets into everything. The Siamese is devoted, that carries a large capacity for love. The Siamese brings joy and laughter in a never-
