Kittens!

This is the most recent picture of our kittens and their litter mates. I think ours are the big girl front left and the boy right at the back with the gigantic ears. But its hard to tell at this point, especially when they are all poking each other and pulling silly faces. Kids of all species act the same in front of a camera! They will all be seal or chocolate point at maturity.

There are actually 2 different litters, 3 boys, 2 girls. The mothers are half sisters (not littermates) and the father is unrelated and the same for both litters. (Whilst probably would be frowned on by The Book of Common Prayer, I can't see anything genetically wrong with this breeding, especially as ours will be neutered in short order!) The boys are younger by a couple of weeks than the girls.

They are all growing up together, so they are used to having an "auntie" around to clip them around the ear if they get out of line, so I think they will settle in with Auntie Puff quite nicely.

We won't get them for another month or so, as the breeder likes them to stay with their families until they are 14 weeks or so.

And yes, I'm aware of adopt, don't buy, but we've been adopting and rescuing for 30 years, both cats and horses, with all the happiness,, issues and tragedies that go along with it. My husband is 80, and he wants a pair of Siamese kittens, and so do I.

Gorgeous babies! Thanks for sharing :)

The lighter colored ones almost look blue, but the colors will get much darker as they get older.

You're going to have so much fun with them, smiles for all to be had!

Never apologize for not doing rescue. I don't begrudge anyone for doing rescue. It's not for the faint of heart, though and if you are paying the bills you get to decide where your money goes. There's no shame in supporting a responsible breeder. I have rescued over a dozen dogs in the last 20 years. Some worked out wonderfully, some did not. I have self-rescued and dealt with rescue organizations, which was a "never-again" experience. I have purchased my last two dogs and will undoubtedly continue to do so. I have paid so much money out on health and behavioural issues with my rescues that I refuse to do it again. I would rather bring my dogs up as I see fit as opposed to cleaning up someone else's mess.

I do both. Rescue when possible, but there is huge advantage to getting a horse or pet from a responsible breeder, free of genetic disorders and bred for purpose be it talent or temperament.

I definitely agree with the two above! My family bred, raised, and showed BedlingtonTerriers for over 20 years. I can truthfully say that we had some of the best in the country. (Group and breed wins on both coasts and the Midwest.). However my last two dogs have been Rescues. My most recent cost well over $1000 in vet bills her first two months. She’s a winner and I don’t regret it, but I could have bought a purebred for less. One of my pet peeves…one of my neighbors clients has a golden doodle. Very nice dog and they are good owners BUT they’ve decided to NOT neuter him because they might want to breed him! I’m sorry….he’s a mutt NOT a purebred. I love to see people buy from responsible breeders and I love to see the Rescues supported….but my pet peeve…breeding more mutts! Anyway enjoy your purebred kittys and we want LOTS of pictures!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Siamese. I have two rescue dogs who are both problem children. One doesn't like other dogs (except Bailey) and the other doesn't like humans (except me). So, when it was time to get cats, I didn't rescue. I went to a responsible breeder.
Jackson and Georgia are half brother and sister and are exactly what I wanted.
This is the only picture I have of Jackson curled up with Bailey in their bed in my office at home. I am, unfortunately, in the work office today.
Mountaineer, we need MORE SIAMESE pictures

Bahaahaah, Heddy... No, no, not happening!

Apart from anything else, I could buy a horse for the price of 5 Siamese cats... which is a bit horrifying.

It's true. But keeping 5 cats is a lot cheaper than keeping a horse!

Good for you Mountaineer. I bred and raised Siamese for 35 years. I hope they're at least 12 weeks and have their two 4 in 1 as well as leukemia. I know a lot of skeevy breeders who try not to give leukemia, making up lies. The truth is most don't do it because that shot costs about 4 times as much as the 4 in 1.

For anyone wanting Siamese pictures, have fun! My old website:https://siamesetraditional.webs.com/

And, just 'cuz, I made a TikTok account and randomly video the cats. We're down to five now. @siamesecatsrule

She is 16 weeks and he is 12 weeks, but quite big for his age. They have had their first shots and wormer.

We have a wellness visit scheduled with the vet tomorrow morning to double check all is well.

We went down to meet them again on Monday. She's a bouncing ball of mischief who I think will be the one who is constantly getting into trouble. He is a little more reserved, but I rather like reserved gentleman cats, so that works well. He reminds me very much of a lovely older male we pulled out of the shelter a few years ago, whose life with us was sadly rather short, but who was just such a sweet-tempered charmer.

Pictures later!

PICS!!!!!!!!!

We demand PICS!!!!!!!!!!

I probably showed off ours back when they came five (!!!! what? !!!) years ago, and yes I posted pics of them in the other thread. Anyway, they're siblings, and the boy is HUGE - not fat, but tall and long; he's the biggest cat I've ever had. The girl is tiny, no more than half his size. She is super sweet, and when she asks for pets you can't tell her no, she's just too adorably cute.

He, on the other hand, can be loud and "sing the song of his people" from a spot somewhere high up - in the loft, or on the top of the cupboards. He's a scaredy cat, though, and can get spooked by the silliest things sometimes :D He loves sleeping on my desk so if I'm working on my PC I have to move him to see the whole screen.

They do like to mess with our other (older) cats, though, sometimes team tagging them. I think they think they're better than other cats :D

They are home but feeling a little insecure yet. They are residing in the kitten condo in the dining room...

That's what I was going to ask -- did you survive the trimming? :D

That said - some cats are just chill about it, I'm hoping yours are so that part of life with them is easy :)

My big boy likes to get naps in my lap, which means I flop him upside down in my arms and hold him like a baby. When he settles, I can trim all his claws without trouble. I hope yours are like that! :)
