Siamese cats are affectionate

Siamese cats are an affectionate and social breed. But this affection is double-edged. You cannot ignore your Siamese cat because she can be very demanding.

But, Siamese kitties will go with you everywhere in the house. It is common for all my three Siamese cats to sit around me on the couch. When petting your Siamese cat, she will purr in excitement and approve your affection.

Other times, your Siamese cat will display affection by blinking at you. It is a way to acknowledge your presence and to let you know that she feels safe around you. Slow blinking is a sign of love and affection from a Siamese cat.

And these cats will select a favorite person in the house. If she picks you, she might lick or twirl her tail around your legs.

Siamese cats also do well in a family setting. If you bring a kitten home, ensure that you teach her socialization. She will become a very loving and affectionate pet.

Siamese cats are vocal

Cat owners who prefer the quiet and aloof cat will find a Siamese cat very demanding. A Siamese cat will meow to communicate her needs with you at all times.

Sometimes she wants your attention, and so she will not shut up. If you’re going to keep a Siamese cat happy, you must pay attention to her. She will meow when she needs food or when you have forgotten to empty the litter box.

I find that many cat owners will ignore a meowing cat. Ignoring a Siamese cat is not going to end well, at least not for you.

Understand what your cat needs when she meows at a particular frequency. It would help if you played with your cat for both physical and mental stimulation.

Because a Siamese cat is intelligent, she will observe and learn what you respond to and what you don’t. This can lead to excessive meowing as a way to get your attention. Do not let that happen.

But this is no reason not to adopt a Siamese cat. You can learn how to keep your cat quiet by paying attention to her. Feed your Siamese kitty on time, empty and clean the litter box at frequent intervals.

Buy engaging cat toys to keep your cat from meowing out of boredom.

These cats love to spend time with their human companions. A Siamese cat will meow and demand that you play with her whenever she feels like it.

As with humans, you must earn your cat’s loyalty. Spend enough time, play, feed, and make sure that she is healthy and you will receive all her affection.

Your Siamese cat will also bond with your children. They are also very territorial of their person.
