Understanding Siamese Cat Behavior

Before you get a Siamese cat as a pet for your home, you need to understand Siamese cat behavior. This is especially important if you have children, because although many people do not realize it, Siamese cats tend to be very particular and definitely have a different temperament than any other breed of cat in the world.

Siamese Cat Behavior

When it comes to Siamese cat behavior, one of the first and most important things to know is that Siamese cats tend to be very jealous and often so much to the point that they will throw tantrums or fits of bad behavior whenever they feel this jealousy.

Siamese cats often make noises so that you will notice them, and they want to keep your attention. They have a very faithful devotion to their owner, particularly when the owner has raised and been with them since birth. Jealously then tends to arise when the owner is paying attention to someone else or another cat, and this is when the Siamese cat may begin acting jealous and angry.

Also in regards to Siamese cat behavior, these cats have a heat-sensitive gene, and Siamese cats that live in warmer regions tend to have paler colored coats. You should always keep your Siamese cat active, as they like to walk around and get a lot of playtime in.

Correct Bad Behavior

Although Siamese cat behavior is often regarded as bad and many people are not willing to have such a cat as a pet. There are ways to correct this bad behavior however, and unlike dogs, cats do not need obedience training in order to develop good manners.

One of the most important things to do if you are trying to correct a cat’s bad behavior is to provide them with plenty of petting and affection. This will help to decrease their feelings of loneliness and make them feel more wanted. All cats love affection and so you can really never show them too much love.

Another great tip is to place obstructions on areas in your home that you do not want your cat jumping up on and make sure to say no to them firmly when they do something wrong. If you do have children in the home, and especially if you got the cat when they were older rather than as a kitten, you want to make sure that you have the cat trained and obedient before introducing them to the children, for safety reasons.
