My Very Own Siamese Pet Kitten

I once wrote about the Health Benefits of Cat Ownership but the thing is I don’t own a pet kitty. My two daughters each own a pet cat. Kylee is almost 10 years old on January 2009. Lady is 7 years old. That’s in cat years. I am often lonely at home when the kids are at school and hubby is at work. I want the two kitties to adore me the way they do their respective masters. But nada.

I resolved to get my own Siamese cat. Why a Siamese cat?

Well, the Siamese are talkers! I see it in Lauren’s Siamese cat, Kylee. He makes a number of sounds and some of the sounds begin to sound very much like human words. The more we talk to our Siamese cat the more it understands our language. So yes, the Siamese is the cat for me.

I searched high and low at pet shops until I decided to check online forums like adpost.com. The ad caught my attention because of the owner. Look at her requirements…

– owner loves cats kaya they are well taken cared of for sure
– I need to talk to the future owners of my kittens, before each transaction.They must be caring…. I won’t sell my kittens to you if you will cage them lang.

I find it touching that Danielle, the cat owner is particular about the future owner of her kittens. I showed her cat entries in my blog to prove that I am truly a cat lover. Danielle seemed happy enough. Today, I finally brought home Missy, a female Siamese (formerly named as Autum by Danielle). She is so adorable.


Missy loves to pose for the camera. I took this photo at Danielle’s home when I was still trying to figure out which of the remaining two kittens fit my personality. The other Siamese scampered away from me as I tried to be friendly. No, not her. Definitely, Missy is the cat for me since she calmly posed for the camera. What a cutie.


I thought of taking a family photo with the mommy and daddy.


The daddy cat cuddles Missy and grooms her a bit as if making sure that she is all cleaned up before I take her away from them forever. I felt sad seeing the loving gesture of the daddy cat. I wonder how they feel about their kittens leaving them. I read somewhere that three months is the appropriate age to give up the kittens for adoption. Is it the same as parents letting their children go after college?

I will never know. All I know is Missy is going to a loving home.


The first thing Missy does is investigate her surroundings and the presents at the corner of the room.


Kylee seems scared at the new addition to our cat family. Missy hisses like anything.


I let her get used to my working space and she is such a “cam whore”. Look at her pose.

How adorable she is. She is my new companion.

““While we all know the power of talking about your problems with a good friend who’s also a good listener, recent research shows that spending time with a pet may be even better! Research shows that, when conducting a task that’s stressful, people actually experienced less stress when their pets were with them than when a supportive friend or even their spouse was present! ”

I know Missy won’t judge me. She will just love me.

    i wanted to get a cat but my fiance is allergic to cats. only the siberian cat is non allergic but they’re hard to find breeders. so it ended up with me with a bunny and a guinea pig. and dogs are not allowed in the apartment 🙁

    have fun with Missy, pets are blessings to a family.

    • http://aboutmyrecovery.com Noemi

      wow what does a Siberian Cat have that does not make one allergic.

    The cats look so adorable. My son’s been pleading with me to get one but he has asthma. Seeing these cute cats, however, makes me want to reconsider my stance…
