Siamese cat kittens

Siamese cat kittens are quite active and energetic. They are very fond of play in any shape or form, so make sure to always find some time in a day to play with your feline. Playtime fulfils your cat’s needs for physical activity and gives you a great opportunity to bond with your kitten. Whenever you want to teach your cat any rules or boundaries remember to use praise and reward, as it is the most effective way to train your kitten. In their first year kittens grow rapidly, so feeding a well-balanced diet composed of healthy and natural ingredients is vital for your kitten’s health and proper development. Kattunge from Husse range is a dry kitten food that will supply your kitten with all the necessary nutrients and all vital supplements, such as taurine for eyes and heart support, vitamins A and E for strengthening your kitten’s immunity as well as Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids that can help with your feline’s coat and skin condition.

Siamese cat’s nutrition

Ideally, your Siamese cat should eat a balanced, rich and varied diet. A combination of wet and dry food crafted with high quality and natural ingredients will work well for your Siamese cat. These felines are known for having sensitive stomachs, so picking a food made specifically for cats with delicate digestive systems can be an excellent choice. Both Opus Lynx and Exclusive Digest from Husse range will be a wonderful maintenance diet for your Siamese cat. You can spice up your Siameses diet with Exclusive Aptit wet food made with fresh and natural ingredients - you can serve it between meals or as an additive to your cat’s dry food to increase palatability. Since Siamese cats love to keep clean and will spend most of their day licking themselves, they can experience hairballs more frequently than other cats. Supplementing with Kattmalt - a natural paste made with malt and specific fat structures that will lower the risk of hairball development and act against unnecessary hairball vomiting.

Detailed description of Siamese cat

Siamese cats are a medium-sized breed that appears very slender and tall, with an elongated torso and long legs. One of Siamese cat’s distinctive features is their point colouration, where their faces, ears, paws and tail are darker than the rest of the body.

Genesis


Siamese cat is considered to be the oldest cat breed of them all. This breed was first described and illustrated in manuscripts called "Tamra Maew" (Cat Poems), estimated to have been written from the 14th to the 18th century. Despite the breeds long history, they haven’t been seen in Europe until the late 19th century, when they were exhibited at the Crystal Palace Cat Show in London. The United States diplomat stationed at the consulate in Thailand brought the first Siamese cat to the U.S. as a gift for President Rutherford Hayes and his wife. The Siamese cat is a natural breed, which means that its distinctive point colouration was the result of a genetic mutation. Today Siamese cats can come in a variety of different point colours.

Appearance

Thanks to their slender torso, long legs and narrow, triangular head, Siamese cats appear very lean. They have narrow muzzles and tails that visibly thin out towards the tip. Their colour point coat gives them a very elegant look. Siamese cats should have their faces, ears, paws and tails significantly darker than the rest of the body and their point colouration should be solid in colour. This breed has almond-shaped and slanted eyes that are blue and intense in colour. Large and wide ears are set at the sides of the head in such a way, that they follow the triangular shape of the head. Their torso is built proportionally - Siamese cats’ arms should not be wider than their hips.

Behaviour

Siamese cats are very affectionate and fond of cuddling with their humans. They are very social but can get particularly attached to one person exclusively. In some cases, Siamese cats can develop separation anxiety or depression when left alone for prolonged periods of time. For that particular reason, cats of this breed are often bought in pairs, so they can keep each other company. Siamese cats will gladly accompany you in any task and activity around the house. These cats are active and energetic and will enjoy physical activity. Siamese cats are also very vocal and can use their loud voice while demanding attention. They are also playful, even as adults, and are often described as more dog-like than other cats.

Requirements

This breed can be a bit demanding and social. Siamese cats love companion and left alone can feel miserable and even develop depression and separation anxiety. A ton of affection will keep your Siamese happy and in best mental shape possible. As quite an intelligent cat breed Siamese cats will require some stimulation with puzzle toys. On top of that, these felines will need some physical activity - they will be more than happy to chase some toys and climb cat trees.

Daily care

With their short coat laying flat against their skin, Siamese cats do not require any particular grooming. Weekly combing will be more than enough to remove dead hairs and distribute skin oils. Siamese cats are great at keeping themselves clean, so you will only need to give them a bath if they get particularly dirty. Remember to trim your cat’s claws regularly.
