LOUD siamese - Page 2

post #31 of 41
My Zane looks like a common-or-garden tubby grey tabby, but I'm sure he has Siamese blood somewhere; it comes out in his voice.

(It works the same way with humans. I have some Cherokee blood. Did I get the high, broad cheekbones? Did I get the clear, coppery complexion? Did I get the large, dark eyes? Did I get the straight, thick, dark hair? In short, did I get anything desireable from that branch of the family tree? Quite the contrary--I took after my Irish/German mother's side of the family--strawberry blond hair with a tendancy to baldness, weak blue eyes, thin pale skin that turns lobster red and then peels in the sun.
From the Native American branch of the family I got the one thing that I could have done without. DIABETES.)

My friend is half Cherokee and half Irish and she got the bad traits from each.
She took after the Cherokee side in looks.
My Coco is half Siamese and she is black and white but she has the siamese loudness.

Siamese DO tend to be very social, and want to be where the people are. Have you heard the legends of them patrolling and guarding the royal palace in Siam? How about having a kink in their tail to hold the harem ladies' rings while they bathed?

I've read that they have been known to kill cobras.

I'd have to say that's true of our meezers. They just have to be wherever we are and contributing to the activities, i.e., if I'm trying to do my weekly crossword puzzle from the paper, Bijou insists on laying directly across all the clues, if I'm trying to read, he insists on laying on the book, if John is doing any household maintenance chores Bijou has to supervise by practically sitting on John's shoulder while he works. Would we have it any other way? Not on your life! I think our life revolves around these 2 beautiful animals.

Lucia has considerable amounts of Oriental in her. She has a kinked tail and talks up a storm. She also makes that unmistakable meezer sound. But she is a tuxedo. She is even small and lithe.
Now she is in heat and it is driving me bananas. So I know what you were going through. Her spay appointment is not until next week but I am tempted to just do it this week. Her kittens are weaned already.

I'm so glad things are becoming better since her surgery.
Our tabby Pru had a scar on her tummy when we got her and the vet assumed it was a spay scar. I realized that she was meowing all the time and you guessed it, she was not spayed. Blissful peace returned after her surgery.

Clio is Siamese and has to be the sweetest cat, she is just a love bug, and her purr rivals her meows in loudness.

Sam who is part Siamese, has a glove he carries while he meows non-stop, very loudly, going from one end of the house to the other before he drops it. I have no idea what that's about. Other than when he has the glove he has a very tiny, small voice.

I find that vocal breeds like Siamese and Orientals tend to do everything loudly. Whether it's asking for food, telling you about their day, letting you know that they are happy, or grumbling their displeasure.

My Orientals are (despite having fantastic temperaments) very quick to start growling or screaming at the slightest infraction, it was un-nerving at first, but you quickly realise that since they talk a lot, they aren't going to keep quiet about displeasure either, even when it's over something really trivial

I am more and more convinced that Zane has Siamese or other Oriental blood, even though he looks like a typical DSH grey tabby, as his behavior seems to fitt the Siamese/Oriental pattern.

Is hostility to other cats a part of the pattern? Because Zane HATES other cats.

I don't believe so. Bijou and Mika love each other and you'll often see the orientals snuggled together. My friend has a Ragdoll that hates other cats though.

Bijou has the deep purr - John says he can hear him across the room when Bijou is cuddled up with me and purring like a little motor boat.

I wouldn't say hostility as such, but they do tend to have very dominant personalities compared to most domestics. Whether they will get along with another cat depends a lot upon the other cat's personality, a very quiet shy cat would probably end up feeling a bit bullied. In my experience they get along best with others of the same breed, but that's not to say they can't have good companionable relationships with other cats too And just as in any other breed or domestics, there are individuals that simply cannot tolerate sharing space with other cats, especially if they are used to living as only cats. But that's not specific to Siamese/Oriental, and most enjoy the company of other similarly active felines
