About Two Felines
Two Felines in this tale are Lily and Lucy. Both are Siamese.
More than just these 2 characters, this site will give a glimpse into cat ownership.
The joys, heartaches, and all things in between. It will be a work in progress, with content, photos, and videos being added.
We at Two Felines advocate indoor only cats.
This site will give you information on health, safety, socializing cats, and much more.
As explained in “Cats vs Us” my transformation way of thinking has progressed over the 50 years of cat guardianship.
Spay or neuter your furry friends. Unless you have a registered purebred which you’re equipped to handle the breeding process. Expenses can add up rapidly. Then the task to place them in suitable homes.
I know that certain circumstances such as allergies to cats, barn cats, and feral cats are not on the list for indoor only kids. But for a long happy life and plenty of stimulation in either a cat companion or positive family interaction with a cat will bring years of happiness and contentment to owner and cat.
There are plenty of homeless pets in shelters and I applaud those that give them a wonderful home. I had seriously considered doing so, if Siamese in my state were not obtainable.
Reputable breeders care about their breed and due diligence in eliminating health issues when they continue their line. Some may feel the breeders are producing kittens unnecessarily with so many unwanted at shelters. Where the problem lies are people that don’t spay or neuter. And let their cats outside to wander, breeding with whatever mate they can find.
Fifty years of having cats, 40 of those were Siamese; we found ourselves ‘cat-less’ for 7 months.
Our 15-year-old blue point Siamese Molly died on May 2nd, 2020. We missed the little pitter-patter of paws on the floor, coming to find us in the office. Our conversations got her attention to become involved.
When Molly became an only cat in 2015, she enjoyed the prestige of our undivided attention. Her first couple of years before she came to live with us were rough. So, we had promised her ‘only cat’ status for the rest of her life.
The downside of that decision, there was no backup cat to drown our tears and loneliness. We mustered through the first few months. Plans to hold out until after the summer of 2021. With the COVID-19 virus in full swing with doubts if the next summer could grant us a much-needed vacation. Plans changed.
Live for today. We don’t know what tomorrow holds. Time to quit putting off our desire for kittens.
We missed the laughter and love that cats bring.
Siamese never grow-up, they are fun-loving and full of energy. A breed with the personality of a loyal dog. And you don’t need to walk them.
They are super smart and love to retrieve. Some are better at it than others. Every one of my Siamese retrieved.
They are very vocal, and one can have a lengthy conversation with them.
My love for Siamese has made my decision to create a website for cat lovers. We had many laughs and many heartaches. Cats have made us better people.
As for Siamese, love their clown faces they are endearing. I always say, “no matter what trouble they get into, they have at least 8 points.” Cute produces at least one more point, purring equals another one, and a cat conversation with me is at least worth 5 points.
They enjoy a sunny place to soak up the sun, but will abandon it if something is happening that needs their attention. They are active and full of love. Never a dull moment.
I’m not an expert like my breeder friends, but what I can offer on this site is personal hands-on experience. My love for Siamese, doesn’t mean I don’t adore other cats. If I was unable to find a Siamese, I surely would have still got a cat. When we could travel (remember those days) if there was a cat, I would stop and talk to it.
Even with the heartaches we have endured from sick cats and hours spending worrying, the journey has rewards. I hope to share with you information to make your cat’s life the best it can be, so that you will enjoy many years with your healthy 4-legged kid.
