After we bought our house I finally got to get two siamese kittens.
One at the end of December and one past Saturday.
Called “Blue” (boy) and “Belle” (girl) and yes it can sound like bluebell which is intended.
They are the cutest things ever. When we got Belle she was so curious and so affectionate, she followed you around and explored everything.
When we got Blue he was and still is so scared. Only comes out when you pull him out from under the sofa or when no one but me is around.
Now the thing is:
I got Belle when she was only 8 weeks old and if I would have known that before I went to get her with my very excited daughter, I would have said “no”.
Belle tends to wee on my or my older son’s bed if no one pays attention! Oh or on the lamb fur carpet under my husbands desk, even when he sits there. She does however uses both litter trays. So for now we have to keep our bedroom doors shut to prevent accidents.
When I picked up Blue, who is nearly 12 weeks old, he was living with his siblings and mum and dad in a conservatory (heated) with all their equipment.
Though the private breeder said, the daughter sometimes plays with them, there seemed no real interaction with human family members/day to day chores and noises in the house.
And both kittens where also fed really cheap kitten food, or adult cat food.
So let me ask you:
Would you eat, lets say, a chicken which only contains 4% chicken and the rest is unhealthy crap? No, didn’t think so!
Both kittens where wormed and vaccinated, no pedigree papers. They where still expansive though.
When I breed my cats, they will be around my very noisy children, in our kitchen in a big warm cozy special box for all of them as long they are not able to use a litter tray.
They will be wormed, vaccinated and chipped and will not leave before they are AT LEAST 12 weeks old.
One breeder even told me, they trim their cats claws….. and that they thought it is a common thing to give them away when they are 8 weeks, eat solids and use the litter tray.
No! There is more to it, like social behaviour which they learn from their mother….
Right. As to my two additions:
One is scared, the other one fumes at the little one and likes to wee on beds.
I will be on my way to Pets at Home to get Feliway and hope they will get used to each other paired with lots of cuddles.
