I'm thinking about adopting an adult Siamese cat
I'm thinking about getting another cat. I have two and I tend to think two is enough but since my third cat died over a year ago I could handle another cat. This whole idea came up after I visited Spain recently and there were a ton of stray cats. Now I just feel like I could/should give one more cat a home.
For some reason I've become preoccupied with getting a Siamese cat - I think because I saw a beautiful one in Spain. It was sitting outside someone's door so I'm hoping it had a home there. I haven't had one since I was a kid but I have fond memories of it. I would get an adult shelter cat rather than one from a breeder and I like the traditional seal point ones. They aren't all that common I'm seeing but there's one at a local shelter that I might go see tomorrow. It would be an indoor only cat as my other cats are (screen porch is their outdoors). The one I've found is a female, about two years old, spayed and declawed.
I've been doing some reading about Siamese cats including some old posts here. Sounds like they are sociable, vocal, like attention and potentially like having other cats around. We aren't home during the day so I'm hoping it would have enough companionship with the other cats during the day. One of them is about 10 years old and still pretty active and playful - the other is 16 with a few chronic ailments so he has really slowed down. All of my most recent cats have been strays or shelter cats and they've all adjusted well to each other after not too long so I'm hoping the same would be true of another one.
Is there anything in particular I need to be aware of with a Siamese cat - behavioral, health, ??? Any reason you can think of that it might not be a good fit in my situation?
