Blue Point Kitten

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Greetings
I have been given the opportunity to foster a blue point Siamese Kitten. Is there any thing special that I should know about? Other finding how cute they are.
Thank you for your time,
Jae, Isabell, Distaster and the new kitten.

I'll move this to Care and Grooming where the others can help you

Well Siamese are very active cats, and very talkative (most are), so be prepared for a lot of interactive fun and a kitten that will talk back to you. Other then that, nothing special about care or grooming.

If its more of the modern Siamese, you want them to keep the long slendar body. You want muscle on the cat, not fat. Scheduled feedings are needed after the kitten has been spayed/neutered - you don't want to free feed - they will overeat.

I am so envious. You are in for a great time and you will probably turn into a Siamese lover. Just take the time to play with him and he will be happy.

Just be prepared to fall totally in love and want to keep it for your own.

And 3rded - fostering a Siamese seems a longwinded route to permanent adoption if you ask me

They are loud, active, demanding, and great fun. They are naturally curious and can't resist getting into trouble They like climbing and jumping, and have good natural inclination to play fetch. If you were getting one straight from a good breeder I would say that they love human company, attention, and affection, but I guess if this is a foster it may not have had the best start in life so that may not be relevant, at least not immediately although if it is young I am sure you will have a great chance at bringing it round. Have fun!

I love the name. Are you going to post some pictures of her in the Fur Pictures forum? I think I can safely say I speak for all of us when I say we NEED to see pictures.

As soon as i can get my hands on a digital camera I'll send some.
Oh btw, the boys are none too happy about her right now. Disaster is still hissing at her and Isabell is hissing at me. LOL
Well we'll all adjust sooner or later.

Pictures have been posted.

Quick question: How do you get a kitten to clean its butt better? I know they usually do this by watching other cats. How long will I have to woryy about her hygene?

Well if she's having some loose stools, that needs to be checked by a vet (possible worms). Otherwise, wipe her butt with warm water - might make it a little extra "wet" so she starts washing/drying herself
