The Siamese cat is distinguished by its exquisite beauty and independent character. To make her feel comfortable, and you have no problems, raise the kitten correctly from the first days of his appearance in your house. The pet needs communication, attention and constant care, then being near him will only bring joy.
To have as few problems as possible in the future, choose your kitten carefully. The kid should not be too shy or, on the contrary, aggressive. Pay attention to the kitten's health. Siamese are characterized by eye problems and diseases of the upper respiratory tract. Check the kitten for purulent discharge from the nose, eyes, and ears. Make sure he has everything in order with the tail - kittens of this breed may have birth defects. A healthy pet is always more outgoing and obedient.
From the first days of the baby's appearance in the house, set the rules for the kitten. Give him a secluded place to rest. Siamese love to watch what is happening in the room, but may need complete privacy as well. The ideal option is a house with a high couch, as well as a variety of jumping and climbing devices. Representatives of this breed are very active, so it is important to put the baby's energy into a peaceful channel from the first days.
Solve toilet problems. Siamese are very clean and squeamish - many kittens need not one, but two trays. Provide the required number of pots and change your litter regularly. Choose the one that the animal likes. No pellets or sawdust stick to the smooth coat, making it easier for your baby to maintain hygiene.
Provide proper nutrition. The kitten must not be overfed - the Siamese must maintain an exquisite slender silhouette. However, it is not recommended to starve the animal - insufficient nutrition makes it restless. The best option is balanced professional food specially formulated for cats of oriental breeds. They will provide the right amount of nutrients, as well as take care of the beauty of the coat, the health of the eyes and the strength of the bones. Do not train your kitten for treats or feed him from the table. The animal should know that during the meal of the owners, its presence is undesirable.
Siamese cats are very sociable. You should not get a kitten of this breed if you are away all day. A bored cat will begin to have fun in the way available to him - to spoil upholstered furniture, meow loudly, and leave puddles on the floor. Lack of attention can cause an animal to become depressed or aggressive and uncontrollable. For the company, you can get another cat, but it is better to pay attention to the pet every day - pet it, play, talk.
If the kitten is guilty, scold him, but do not beat him - the pet must trust the owner. Try to figure out what the root of the problem is. Perhaps the kitten does not have enough attention, he is not eating properly or is sick.
The sociability and "talkativeness" of the Siamese are noted by everyone who has dealt with this breed. Do not try to silence the cat - frequent meows, loud purrs and a full range of other various sounds will accompany all of your cat's actions.
Oriental cats are characterized by early puberty and activity in the matter of reproduction. If you do not plan to breed kittens, neuter your pet after the first or second estrus. This also applies to males - non-castrated cats actively mark their territory and are prone to escapes. A simple operation will solve the behavioral problems and make the cat more calm. However, some males also tag after castration. The plus is that the discharge will not have such a pungent smell.
