The Official Guide To Adopting Siamese Kittens

Did you know that the Siamese cat is recognized as the oldest breeds of Oriental cats? In fact, they are originally from Thailand, which was known as Siam. Their blue eyes are piercing, and they may lure you into making the commitment to adopting a Siamese cat. Let’s learn some helpful tips about the adoption of a new Siamese cat. 

Siamese Cats Are Extroverted

Don’t have time to walk a dog? More of a cat person? Siamese cats are the perfect extroverted cat - they love playing fetch. Those with enough time on their hands at home should adopt a Siamese cat because they will want your attention all the time. Lots of playtimes are intended. 

Their Meow is a Lot

We do not take this lightly - their meows can be a lot to handle. Their little voices just go and go, which makes Siamese cats extra adorable. Everyone loves calling their Siamese Chatty Cathys - because they talk so much. Your Siamese will never bore of telling you about their day, or that they’re hungry, or that they are excited to play. Don’t think you’re a crazy cat lady for engaging in “conversation” with your Siamese, they’re just too adorable to ignore. Don’t be alarmed when you first take your Siamese home and they start their caterwaul - it’s going to be loud if they want something, especially.

Siamese Cats Are Cuddle Bugs

On the fence about adopting a Siamese? If you are not a cuddler, then you are not for a Siamese kitten. They absolutely love being held, cuddled, and given love and affection. They make the perfect lap kitties and will remain by your side as they are loyal to their owners. So if you’d rather get a cat that ignores you or doesn’t think you exist, then just don’t adopt a Siamese. Do also note, this cat breed is notorious for being the jealous type, so they may get a cattitude if you ignore them. 

Activity For Siamese

Siamese cats need stimulation, so, if you work a lot, it may be best for you to get two cats. This is a breed that easily gets bored, so be sure to have lots of toys on hand. These cats also love to climb, so don’t be surprised if you find your Siamese at the top of the refrigerator. 

Caring for Your Siamese

Because Siamese cats have short and fine coats, they’re super easy to groom. Just give them a weekly brushing to remove dead hair and care for their skin. Remember to brush their teeth with a kitty-safe toothpaste weekly to avoid periodontal disease. And make sure their nutrition is controlled and their sleek bodies are kept up by not overfeeding them and giving them the right cat food. 

Siamese Cats Are Worth Adopting

Siamese kittens are lovable cuddle bugs and deserve all the attention that they crave. So, before you decide to adopt your Siamese cat, be sure to make a list of pros and cons that will help you decide. Remember, owning any pet is a commitment. However, if you have the time, attention, and love to give, you should be giving it to a beautiful Siamese cat.

How long do Siamese cats live?

The beautiful and loving Siamese cats can between 11  and 15  years. However, a lot of them can reach 20 years old. They are one of the many cat breeds that live the longest!

Should I adopt a Siamese cat?

Before you adopt any pets, make sure that you have the time and resources to do so. It's important to do some research about the pet you're getting before bringing them home. Siamese cats are very sweet and loving, so if you don't mind their extroverted personality and loud meows, you're going to love having them around!

Are Siamese cats hypoallergenic?

Yes! Siamese cats have shorter than average hair, thus, they shed a lot less than other breeds. For this reason, they are considered hypoallergenic. Do be aware that no cat is truly hypoallergenic so expect your Siamese cat to still shed a little.
