My siamese ktten Romeo is being neutered today He's five months old and
he has never been away from me until now. It's just nerve wracking.

When my girl was spayed at 4.5 months old she was so awake and alert when I picked her up. She got home and alls she wanted to do was play! I was so paranoid thinking my other kitten would play to rough with her. Kittens bounce back sooo quickly. Of course with girls its a little different. She did end up with a suture opening a little so we had to put her antibiotics. She never acted like she just went through a big surgery.

Thank you so much for your good vibe.....any advice on what to do when he comes home?

See if he'll curl up with you for a while and sleep off any of the anesthetic left over. Just make sure he's warm. If you have other cats he might want to play! I tried so hard to make my girl sit still and calm down but she wanted nothing to do with it. Just try to avoid letting him jump anywhere.

He'll rebound very quickly!

Thank you for another good vibe! I know with females it's a little harder but you were so lucky that you're little girl bounced back so quickly.

I hope Romeo bounces right back too and being Siamese I'm sure he will have lots to say! Still anyone who's been through this it's tough waiting.

Thank you and I do have another cat Bella who's 2, they play all the time and when I bought Romeo home at just 6 weeks she became his surragate mother! To this day as big as Romeo is getting he still tries to suckle from her.

It is hard waiting. I was so glad to hear from the vet part way through the day letting me know she was fine and she was so tiny they put her on a heating pad. Evidently it wasn't long before she started crying to go home. She cried the whole way home but was a happy clam to be back in famililar surroundings.

Aww thats so cute! If he sees her as his mom then suckling might just be the perfect thing to calm him down! The anesthetics they use nowadays wear off really quickly. My boy 12 years ago was drowsy most of the night but they are fast acting that is why they can spay/neuter so much younger now.

Romeo - what a beautiful name. He will be fine I'm sure. Bijou was a little groggy but fine and they didn't do stitches or glue - just pulled the skin together and let it heal naturally.

Have you posted pictures of Romeo in the Fur Pictures Forum yet? I'd love to see him since I have a weakness for Siamese babies.

Awwww that's so sweet I just can't wait for this day to be done, no sleep last night of course. Romeo is my first Siamese and what wonderful cats they are, talking all the time etc I swear Romeo thinks he's human!

They really are amazing animals. Mika has a birth defect and thus she has no voice except for this sweet little kind of "heh" sound and Bijou isn't a prolific talker except when my husband is around and he wants to go out in his harness and leash.

He sleeps beside me with his paw around my neck and his face against my cheek or on the pillow beside me - sometimes I can barely breathe but wouldn't dream of disturbing him.

I love all cats, but I truly believe that once you have a Siamese you'll always want a Siamese.

I can't wait to see pictures of your handsome Romeo.

I had pics up of him as a baby baby none recently though, I will have to get around to doing that. Thank you for liking his name, his whole name is Romeo Valentino because he's such a lover boy!
I like your kitty's name too, trying to pronounce it in the right way.

Hahah this Romeo has a big heart! And he can roar with the best of them!
post #17 of 26
Yah I like the spelling of Mika. My girls name is Meeka. Do you pronounce it that way or does the "i" have a stronger sound?

My girl started out as Meko before we new she was a girl. Our breeder thought she was a boy and the vet said it was a close call but later discovered in fact was a girl. So Meeka she now is.

Thank you. It is pronounced "Beejoo". My husband was never a big cat lover (he didn't dislike them just didn't like them as much as me) and now he is just gaga over Bijou. Mika is our daughter's cat (full sister to Bijou but from a later litter) and she has him wrapped around her paw too. Our daughter says she can't believe how much her dad loves Bijou. He takes him with him to the library, the hardware store, and anywhere he goes when he runs errands. They're buddies and Bijou loves it.

I agree Siamese are unique,I might get another one day but right now he's enough! Along with my cat Bella, well actually she isn't my cat but has been with me for five months now as her owners are in the air force. So she seems like she's mine, I dread the day I have to seperate the two of them. What kind of Siamese cats do you have? Romeo is a classic chocolate seal point

The coloring is very pretty. I really like classic siamese I think they are called. I'm also very fond of tonkinese. The classics I know aren't as extreme which I like a little better.

Bijou is a lilac-point and Mika is a Blue-Cream point.

We pronounce it the same as you "meeka". She's my little grand-princess. I love her to pieces. She is about half Bijou's size and so dainty. She also loves kids. On Halloween night I would hold her when the kids were at the door and they all wanted to pet her and she was just fine with that. Bijou on the other hand hung back and wasn't so eager to make their acquaintance.

I love the Bengals too. They are soooo beautiful.

Tonkinese,I haven't heard of them?
post #24 of 26
They are a cross between a siamese and a burmese (its registered with TICA and CFA too I believe). The idea is to get away from the extremity of the siamese (though classics are great, not fond of traditional), and take that great outgoing siamese personality with the lap-cat (often called lap fungus because they are alwyas there) cat of teh burmese. Color is usually a tad bit darker but still pointed with all the variations. I think its a neat combination .

And of course my love are bengals and I'm a sucker for Maine Coon's as well.

CFA - Tonkinese

I shall have to look them up! Traditional Siamese have the apple shaped face, is that right? Romeo has a tiny face but he's still very young, his face is becoming darker each month and his coloring is like vanilla pudding with added dashes of chocolate, quite beautiful. I too like Maine Coons but they are so expensive. Bengals are so beautiful,they have the spots right?
post #26 of 26
Yes, like little leopards. They are a bit more expensive than Maine Coons though. Your boy sounds so pretty! I like Siamese but I don't think my fiance is to keen on them.

Here are some of the latest pictures of my babies - 1 Savannah (silver), 1 Bengals (brown spotted), 1 Torbe (rescued from a barn).
