SIAMESE KITTEN CARE|
First off you must understand that your new kitten will need some time to adjust to you & its strange new surroundings.
It has been through a very traumatic experience for one so little!
Being removed from its first home, mom, & siblings,
not to mention the car ride.
Plus the fact the kitten is a SIAMESE kitten after all.
& by breed alone, do tend to be nervous when small.
It is best you put them in a quiet room & let them settle in & feel comfortable & secure in their new home.
It is very important to spend time with them, talk, cuddle & fuss over them (if they will allow it) when you get them home.
First you must gain their trust.
It is not unusual for them to cry for mom & hide away for the first day or 2.
Soon they will overcome their fear, become hungry or lonely, missing their mom & siblings & will want more attention from you.
Adjusting might take a few hours or a few days, but when it does happen you will develop a very special bond with your new baby.
Please be patient with them.
They are only babies after all.
We will give you a starter kit with your new kitten with food & information on looking after them.
We recommend dry kibble be left out for the kitten at all times while it is young.
Please keep their litter box close at hand until they get to know their way around.
Then slowly move it to its permanent location.
Its always a good idea to have an extra litter box available.
Our kittens are well trained before they go but a new kitten in new surroundings may not associate a new litter box & litter as their toilet, simply because there are no cat smells to tell them it is.
Even well trained kittens can make mistakes in a strange new environment.
If you have other cats a small amount of used litter in the new box will help them adjust.
Its also very important to keep your kitty litter clean.
It will obviously keep down odors & will also keep your cat from wanting to go elsewhere.
Cats like us want a clean rest room.
A secret we give to our customers to save you a ton on commercial cat litters is try softwood "wood stove pellets".
just enough to cover the bottom of your litter box is all you need.
A $6.00 bag will last you for months on end!
Its exactly what you get in your pet store but does not say "CAT LITTER" on it so its a fraction of the price.
In the long run the savings will more than pay for your new kitten!
But they will quickly adapt to any brand that you may choose.
Please keep in mind some house plants are toxic & kittens like to chew on things.
Also a non toxic floor cleaner is recommended as residue will stick to feet & cats are always cleaning themselves.
Toxins can build up in their system & cause problems when older or even allergic reactions when young.
This is not always taken into consideration if problems occur.
Wet food is also much better for cats.
Dry food is of course more convenient but canned food once a day is also recommended.
It is much better for us if the new owner looks into the breed before they complain about their new kitten being frightened,nervous or unsociable when they get it home.
Regardless of how loving your kitten was here they WILL need time to readjust & get to know you!
If you want & love the breed please understand the breed.
Siamese are VERY intelligent cats,
& even very young they understand when something is amiss.
They will not understand whats happening to them & will surely not know who you are.
These cats originated in a very ancient, exotic & mysterious land.
You may be able to take the cat out of Siam (Thailand)
but you cant take the Siamese out of the cat!
Our kittens are Traditional Siamese after all & not just a cat that looks like one!
Some kittens will adjust sooner than others.
But given some time, you will find they just can't get enough of you!
Siamese tend to be known for being quite vocal cats.
If you like vocal, talk to your kitten so they learn to talk back.
Content cats don't tend to be as vocal simply because they have nothing to complain about. LOL
Being altered & individual personality can also affect their need to vocalize.
Traditional SIAMESE are the best of all cat breeds,
Beautiful, affectionate, intelligent & attentive.
& I know you will find them as wonderful as we do.

bring a carrier to take your new kitten home in.
They will be nervous from their trip.
