I always want to make sure my Siamese cats, Batman and Robyn, have a fun day every day. And sometimes, I ran out of ideas to make that happen especially since outdoor activities are not an option.
If you’re stuck in the same dilemma as me, try these fun ways to bond with your Siamese cat at home to make their day boredom-free:
Siamese cats get bored if we do not give them enough care and attention. They may become sad and even depressed if they don’t receive much love.
That is why spending quality time with our cats is necessary. Read on as we explore more ways to bond with our beloved Siamese cats.
7 Ways to Bond and Connect with Your Siamese Cat
1. Give your Siamese cat the best nutritious treats.
Siamese cats are often treat-motivated. Giving treats is one fun way to encourage your bond! Your furry pal will bond with you even more for being a treat-giver. It’s one of the fun ways to get closer to your cuddly cat.
I enjoy giving my Siamese cats, Batman and Robyn, treats. I see it as bonding time, fostering a fun connection between us.
For treats, the best options are only healthy goodies! There is no need to note the unhealthy treats your cat used to like. Your buddy will forget about it! Take note of what nutritious treat your pal enjoys during your playtime.

What treats should I never give to my Siamese cat?
Batman loves wet food as a treat. One of Batman’s favorites is the Halo Grain Natural in Turkey flavor. This food is 100% grain-free. He looks forward to it. I only scoop out a little at a time and wrap the rest in a baggie in the fridge. Considering Siamese cats need a high meat-based diet, this treat is a good choice!
Knowing your cat’s favorite treats is helpful. You can use them as rewards during your playtime. You can use the treats anytime you want to bond with and get closer to your Siamese cat.
Don’t forget, moderation in all treats! And give only healthy goodies!
2. Feed your Siamese cat well.
For cats, the concept of food and bonding is the same. They feel cherished and cared for when they have someone serving them good meals. Still, the easiest way to a cat’s heart is through his stomach. Do you agree?
Take note of the good foods your Siamese cat loves. You need to know what kind of food is best if you want a close relationship with your furry pal. Include how often you should feed your pal.

Knowing what tastes or formulas your cat likes best will help you make your pal’s mealtime more fun.
How often should I give food to my Siamese cat?
This subject is one of the most common queries when feeding a cat. After all, we want our Siamese cats to feel full and satisfied throughout the day. While free-feeding sounds fun, it is not healthy at all. Doing so means you cannot tell if you have underfed or overfed your cat.
Your Siamese cat will be vocal when hungry, especially when your pal is hyperactive. You need to listen and feed your pal a healthy amount with fresh water on the side.
Compliment your cat on how he eats to prop your bond even further. Rather than filling your cat’s bowl and walking away, please talk with your cat while doing it. For example, ask if your pal loves the food. Sit near as your cat eats the meal.
With Robyn, I do things this way. Wiith Batman, he prefers to be alone when eating. Yay! That’s all right. I’ll think of another idea for bonding time anyway.
3. Spend some time petting your Siamese cat.
Have you ever pet your cat, who seemed to enjoy it at first, only to bite pretty soon or scratch you? It might be easy to blame the cat, but what’s likely happening here is that you’re not petting your furry pal right. You must know when and where your cat likes to get petted.
Robyn likes getting petted around his head and face. Batman loves back scratches. Remember, no swooping down on the cat! Even though they are sociable, Siamese cats have personal boundaries.

How not to pet a Siamese cat?
Asking permission before petting a cat is top of the list in the process. Knowing whether your cat feels at ease is necessary.
When your cat purrs and kneads you with the front paws, you’ll know it’s okay to pet. Your pal may ask for more from you if you pet the right way. It would mean more time together!
The cute little nudge you get if you stop petting your cat is another way to tell your kitty is having fun.
The most personal way to get close to your Siamese cat is through petting sessions. Since each cat likes to get petted in a particular manner, learn the “right way” for your Siamese cat.
4. Set aside playtime for your Siamese cat.
Siamese cats are playful. They yearn for companionship in their free time. While other cats prefer independence, Siamese cats prefer interacting with their human family.
Whenever Batman keeps following me, I know it’s because he wants some playtime with me. To prop our bond more, I play with him for 10 to 15 minutes daily.
Playing with your cat is the most enjoyable way to bond. Setting aside a particular time each day for play is most satisfactory to your cat.
How can I best play with my Siamese cat?
During playtime, you have the privilege to get to know your cat more. It’s the perfect time to connect with your Siamese cat even more.
Playtime is also an excellent time to reassess if your cat is in good health. You can observe any changes in your cat’s physical health.
What does my Siamese cat like to do for fun?
Siamese cats like to do a lot of fun things. Some of the most common ones are:
My Siamese cats enjoy interactive toys. I have super busy days, so I keep Batman and Robyn occupied with many interactive toys.
Your furry buddy has a lot of energy to spend. Your pal needs to let it out in positive ways.
A good play session can help release that energy. Your initiative and interaction are the best ways to make that happen.
5. Train and teach your Siamese cat tricks.
Siamese cats are intelligent felines. They like it when something makes them think. One of the most fun ways to bond with your cat is to train and teach him tricks. Training them is the best way to improve your connection. Teaching them tricks bolsters your bond.

Teaching your cat new tricks is rewarding to you and your cat pal. One thing to remember is that training a Siamese cat takes time and patience. You can’t force your cat to do all the tricks. It will cut the connection you wish to have with your pet.
Every cat is different and will have a fascination with different tricks. As you teach your Siamese cat new tricks, pay attention to which ones your cat likes best. Focus on those tricks, so your cat will not hesitate to join the fun!
6. Give your Siamese cat space to hide and relax.
Most Siamese cats love to hang out with their human family. Like us, they sometimes need some time alone. Your house should have spots where your Siamese cat can doze and be alone. Giving them that time and space could help improve your connection.
