"Bandit" is resting on the bed. Below is a link with photos taken hastily with my phone. He needs a new name. I like my cat's names to have a Ssss sound. Simon, Sing, Aspen, and Tristan are off the table as they have or are currently being used
Ok CoTHers, I am torn. There is an apple head, seal point, neutered male Siamese cat at the local shelter.
I currently have a 13 lbs Russian Blue neutered male and a 65 lbs Boxer/pittie/blackmouthcur/something cross in a 500 sq foot apt.
I am home all the time, (work from home), not a lot of furnishings, (lots of floor space) and feed a very good, well balanced diet to my dog and cat.
Growing up we always had one Siamese cat. I know they are vocal, funny, and in your face.
So my question is....do you think I am crazy having 3 pets and myself in a smallish apt?
The shelter closes at 5pm today.
Oh, he is only $20.00!!!

From the details you've given it seems like it would be an easy addition but if you have a gut feeling that is questioning the decision then listen to that feeling. If he will still be there in the morning maybe sleep on it? Of course COTH will enable but ultimately he will be your pet for the next 12+ years, not ours. If you decide to go ahead and get him, please post photos!!
"Bandit" is sitting on my bed while Tristan (the cat) and Riley (the dog) are sniffing his towel that I had in the carrier for the ride home. "Bandit" is a 6 yr old neutered male that was an owner surrender and gets along fine with other cats. The test will be if he can tolerate the dog. The good news is, is that Tristan walloped Riley when he was a pup so the dog things cats are NOT to be played with.
"Bandit" weights in at a hefty 23 lbs. I am going to put him on a grain free, limited dry food and I picked up some more grain free cans on my way home.
I had been watching him on the shelter website for 2 weeks, he almost got adopted yesterday but they were deterred by his size.
Here is he....he is not a full Siamese, his coat is a bit course and oily, and he has a fair amount of dander. But good food and a loving home will fix those minor issues.
