Though I have a little boy now who's close, he's failed to fully outgrow that kitten clingyness that makes them glue themselves to you. He's easily the neediest cat I have ever had.
Personally, I think your two are just sweet precious babies who've had a wonderful home to grow up in.
Many people think all Siamese are moody - which makes no sense.
And I am a blond, btw.
Hey, a smart blond! Who knew!
We have a number of blondes in our family and not a dumb one among them. I find most of them are "dumb like a fox".
Sounds like you have the perfect little fellow right now! I don't know about you but I hate going to work and leaving Bijou alone - it makes me sad.
My "soul kitty" was a female Siamese. She seemed to sense my every mood. If I was sad or upset she would get up from a nap and come to me. Maybe that experience has something to do with my love for Siamese. My friend has Bijou's sister and she called her velcro-kitty as she has formed an amazing attachment to my friend. I had her for a few days before she went to my friend and she was the same with us. She wouldn't eat unless I sat on the floor beside her while she had her food.
So this indicates that females can be as cuddly and clingy as males.
Honestly, I think every cat is different, just like people. Some will be affectionate and clingy, others aloof and loners. I do believe that some breeds are more susceptible to certain characteristics than others though.
Thanks for the wonderful words on our kitties and our home. We feel very blessed that these 2 animals have honoured us with their love and devotion and are given that love and devotion back two-fold from us, their humans.
