Siamese cats are outgoing social cats. This cat breed is loving and trusting around humans and they respond to human interaction. It is often said that the love of Siamese cats for their owner is so intense that they follow their owner from room to room to stick to them. 

They are cuddle-buddies and they love to be cuddled and held. Siamese cats are also well known for being conversationalists, meowing loudly to their owners and sometimes chirping. 

This cat breed is very energetic and playful. Unlike other cat breeds, they don’t get lazy with age. So you can entertain your cat with the following games- 

Ping-pong Play

Ping-pong balls will be so much fun for your cat. Try bouncing it on the ground and see her chasing it. Bonus tip: it can be very fun bouncing the ball around the bathtub, but make sure they don’t get hurt! 

Shadow Games

With the lights out, move a string, a small object or a cat toy in front of your flashlight to create a shadow on the wall and watch your cat try to catch the obscure shapes. This will entertain them and keep them active and playful. 

Bubble Bursting 

Catnip-scented bubbles can make an interesting playing activity for agile cats. They’’ love popping the bubbles with their mouth and paws. You can join them by creating more bubbles and watching them play! 

Are Siamese Cats Dog Friendly? 

Yes, Siamese cats are friendly to dogs and children in the house. As they are friendly and active, they often play with the dogs. So is the question- is your dog friendly to cats? If not, you should train your dog to be friendly towards your cat. 

Basic Needs

According to experts, Siamese cats are intelligent and energetic cats and they are not “couch potato cats”. Shower them with affection, so they don’t feel neglected. You can also bring them a playmate (another Siamese cat) who can resist a 24/7 playmate! 

Bringing a companion for your cat doesn’t mean you don’t need to look after them and they can stay on their own. Observe that Siamese cats thrive in a home where people spend a lot of time. 

Therefore give them attention and play with them, don’t leave them by themselves for too long. This will make them emotionally disturbed and anxious. 

Food 

Siamese Cats should be fed two-sized meals per day. Make sure they get enough protein to make their day. Young Siamese Cats should be fed 3-4 times a day (small meals) to ensure they receive enough nutrients. 

Grooming

Since Siamese cats have short coats, they are easy to groom. Comb him weekly with a stainless steel comb. Then, trim their nails every 10-14 days. 

Health

Siamese cats can be prone to Asthma and Bronchial disease, heart defects and Amyloidosis. These diseases occur when protein is no longer supplied to the organs where they are supposed to be. 

Additionally, Siamese cats are also prone to periodontal disease. To prevent it, brush your cat’s teeth at home with vet-approved toothpaste. 

Conclusion 

Siamese cats are active, loving and friendly cats. They get along well with children and other pets in the house. So you don’t need to worry if you have a dog. However, since they are playful, you’ll need to give them some time for their playing session. 

If you have two Siamese cats, don’t leave them alone with each other for too long, they also require human interaction and attention, without which they’ll end up feeling neglected.
