A revisit to an old case...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Doing a search, I realized it's been a year since my first posts about our problems with our cat and while they got better for quite awhile, they have exploded ten fold and I could really use some advice (that is, other from the suggestions of getting him a playmate).

This was my previous post about him. We did make attempts to find him a playmate, even within the last couple months have gone to adoption showcases, etc.. to see if there were any family matches and there just hasn't been. And the more we think about it, the more we don't want to take on the responsibility of another cat, especially given we are so unhappy with the circumstances surrounding cat ownership right at the moment.

So, to give a bit of an update. This mighty cat has torn through/clawed through four window screens in order to get outside. Oh, yes, you read that correctly. Last year we tried taking him out on a harness and leash but that didn't fly with him. He has wanted out bad enough to claw his way out which is frustrating in and of itself. Monday we are having heavy-duty screens placed, so that we can open our windows and enjoy the fresh spring air and we can only hope they will stand up to the cat.

His meowing is 100x worse. I can't even begin to describe it. This cat gets all the attention in the world and has the devout attention of "his dog". He gets regular play sessions, cuddle time, has been checked out by the vet to ensure he's healthy. Yes, I do realize that he is a Siamese, but this talking that he is doing is not the standard Siamese talk. Frankly, it's driving the household batty. It's gotten to the point where if he meows, the dogs get up and leave the room.

We created a space for him in the garage, put out a cat tree, a cat box, toys that generally can't be out due to size issues with the dogs, to give him his space and he loves going out for bits and pieces of the day, but it's not been enough for him.

We need help. The situation is bad. I've had cats all my life, but have never had such an experience before. Help.
