Default Hi

I've owned a cat before.. she was 14 when she passed away a year ago from old age.
I waited a year and now I am ready and have a new Siamese. I'm here for help as he is TROUBLE!! I am even considering bringing him to a shelter. Hopefully this forum will help me with some tips on how to handle him. I'm really hoping I can get some ideas!!

What sort of trouble is he doing? Can you be specific? Siamese cats are demanding, vocal, loyal, and very active cats, real busybodies. Some like to chew wool. So he needs toys, active interplay with a fishing pole type of toy like "Da Bird", lots of chatting with him and attention. Some don't do well as an only cat especially if the owner is away long periods of the day at work. He may be just bored, so change around his "toys".....put out empty boxes to play in and switch around his toys every week so he doesn't get bored with them. If you're away at work, leave on a radio.

Hopefully some Siamese owners will come on and give you more suggestions. Don't give up hope so soon, there are solutions. Good luck!

Also, Siamese like to climb up high, so if you don't have a cat tree, you should get one and place it near a window, so your boy can see what's going on outside.

I've had Siamese for 13 years now and the best 'cure' for a naughty Siamese, is another one

Get him a play-mate to keep him occupied and snuggle with, he'll spend all of his energy with him and stop taking it out on your house and furniture.

Please don't give up on your kitty. How old is he? Maybe he feels lonely or is going through a phase. Make sure he has plenty of toys and a tall cat tree. Walmart has one, nothing fancy and it is not very expensive. Somebody posted about getting another kitty and that may solve all your problems. If you are up to it please consider adding another kitty to your household. Your cat gets a friend and you get to enjoy watching their interactions. This forum has wonderful information on cat introductions to make it easier on everybody. Please let us know how it turns out, good luck.
