Is it better for Siamese cats to be with the same breed or is it OK to have them with Tabbies? I have two Orangies & I am looking for that one really lovey lap cat. The more I am reading about Siamese, the more I am thinking this is what I want. Is this not a good match for my two Tabbies??

It depends on the individual cat, on both sides. See, I'm a Russian Blue, and Emmy (The siamese we live with) is fine with me. She hated my sister, before she died.

Anyways. Just see if there is any way for the cats to meet each other before adoption, and if there's one hiss - it's probably not going to work. Siamese hold grudges.

Topaz is right...Siamese do hold grudges and not just with other cats but with humans as well. They are also extremely intellegent
and have very distict personalities. My blue point was not too much of a lap cat though.

Me & Kibble are the BEST of friends, I am not sure if I am totally Siamese (in fact I'm probably not) but I am the purriest lap cat around my parts. My predecessor Naopleon was part siamese too & he loved ALL cats (& dogs too). so maybe a part siamese. we found ours on petfinder. good luck.
