Did You Know?
he Siamese personality is different from other
cats in several ways. Siamese are very attached to humans. In ways they
are more like a dog or an infant, in that they need much more attention
than one would expect. They really require daily individualized personal
time with you. They will follow you around the house, play games with
you, and demand your company and attention when they want it. Unlike dogs,
however ,there is often a probationary period before they give you their
They are also highly intelligent. Because of this trait, without the
personalized attention and some training they can get themselves into all
kinds of trouble. They can go where they are not supposed to, open things
that they shouldn't, be in places you don't want them to be - they can
constantly be on the lookout for stimulation and if it's not provided they
can make their own.
The voice itself is very different from other breeds, and
can vary from a plaintive mew to a loud yowl. They are often mistaken
for crying babies. The intensity of the vocalization should not be prolonged
if you are smart enough to understand what they want. Most of the time
they talk at conversational levels.

Cat" to better understand what a Rescue cat is.
A Lasting Home
If you feel you are ready to adopt a Rescue Siamese, we would love
to consider your home as a permanent placement for one of our many,
loving cats. However, as I'm sure you can understand, temporary placements
can be stressful on all involved, and are certainly not beneficial to
the cat; therefore we are making every effort to make sure you are
completely prepared for your new family member.
We think Siamese are the Best! We hope you will too!
