    Default to go and get him or not...went and GOT him!

    UPDATE!!

    "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!!

    The ONLY reason not to would be if dog or cat will be hard the new addition. Your apt's too small if there is going to be any aggression. Otherwise, DO it!

    I want another siamese. Sadly, I have way too many mutt cats.

    What on earth are you waiting on?

    "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.

    He needs a new name. I am not fond of Bandit.

    I am opting for 'kitty' until he tells you his name

    handsome fella! Good food will most likely take care of the fur problems!

    Good for you!

    I like Simon. In the 4th picture he looks like he can't believe his good fortune.

    "Deterred by his size" ?!?

    That's so wrong. Everyone knows it's hard to grow such a large cat.

    I LOVE YOUR NEW KITTY - Congrats! Beautiful boy! I had a "Squeaky" - turned into Queaky! I vote for waiting until he tells you his name.

    Just went in and spent some time with him, he purrs like a machine!

    I will wait till he tells me his name, but in the mean time its fun to think of something. He does react when I make spiss spiss sounds ....you know that funny S-y sound cats like.
