We bought a brother and sister Siamese kittens. We had every intention of having them both fixed. She isn't even 7 months old. Last night she had kittens. All five of them seem to be healthy. My questions are as follows (I am not attempting to advertise) 1) Where is the safest place to advertise Siamese kittens that don't have papers. 2) Chloe and Sebastian are down right passionate with one another, do you think he would harm the kittens? 3) If there is a chance he could harm the kittens, I want to let him go. Is there a demand for studs? If so, where do I even start? Again, he doesn't have papers. If he is worth money, I would like get my monies worth. He is a wonderful cat! Very friendly ~ lets my three-year old lug him around and plays fetch with his toy mice.... Right now Sebastian is sitting in the rocking chair that is right by the closed box that has Chloe and the kittens in it with his paw outstretched onto the box... awwwwwwww : )
Thank you so much,... oh and they ARE indoor cats : )
Wow, a bit of a surprise! I would'nt worry about the male, if he's fne now, but I would cage the babies up with the Mom when you're away, just in case, as well as at night. He is actually more likely to kill them by playing with them, or trying to. Be very careful about who gets these kittens. There seems to be an awful rash of psychotic animal murderers out there. Where are you located? Personally, I would'nt advertise on anything big, I would try to do it by word of mouth, first. And I would neuter the male now, before he starts marking, in fact I'm surprised he has'nt already.
When you take your kittens in for their shots and worming, I would ask the vet if they know of anyone that is looking for a kitten. He or she will know if anyone recently lost their beloved pet cat and are in the market for a new kitten.
I am sorry to hear that you allowed siblings to produce a litter, but it is after the fact now. Do what is right and have him neutered. As already mentioned, he will start marking or spraying and that is a nasty smell to try to get out of furniture or carpeting.
You are right, he's not worth lots of money, so forget that idea. Do you have pictures of the babies? Please post them for us.
what kind of simese cats do you have? I have a seal point, she is very beautiful. she has the bluest of eyes and her markings are awsome, I didnt know much about simese untill i had found her homeless at work back in october, starving to death. so of coarse i couldnt leave her to die and brought her home and the rest is history. Gabby has more energy then all of us put together in the house, she is into EVERYTHING, shes high strung to say the least. are all simese this way? good luck with your litter, im sure you will beable to find good homes for them.
I forgot to mention that cats without papers are a dime a dozen, and if you do sell him, I would only ask the price of the immunizations and neutering charges. He is not usable as a stud because he's not registered. Good luck.
I agree, you can get Siamese cats at shelters all the time, I would neuter him ASAP, your female may be ready to breed again within 2 weeks of giving birth. That is pretty close inbreeding, and can cause alot of problems, especially without knowing weather yours are already inbred.
Thank you everyone for your replies... yes, getting him neutered or giving him away, which ever can come first at this point. No I don't think of my pets as investments. At the same time ignorance breeds apathy and I didn't want be taken advantage of. Again, everyone has been very helpful! I live in MA.
I have never known a male cat to injure kittens. I have had cats my entire life. Please Please do yourself a favor and fix him. Don't try to get cute and bread him Unless you want pee all over your house. Then people end up giving there cats up because they can't control the urine problem. And you can't control it once it starts. Fix him Now!!!! Don't make him lose a home and you lose a pet. It happens tooo much and it is so sad when all you have to do is fix them.

Why are you looking to give the male away? The female only became pregnant because you did not spay her and neuter him before she came into heat. So why is he the one that gets the boot?
Don't give him away, he sounds so perfect for your family. Not many cats will let a six year old play with them!
Just get him fixed asap. When you are doing this, ask the vet how soon you can get your little mom fixed.
I would get your vet involved in finding homes for the kittens. You can advertise free on craigslist, but be VERY careful who takes them.
You might even want to think about having the kittens fixed before you let them go and then charging the cost of their shots, worming and neutering to the adopters. Our humane society fixes kittens as young as six weeks.
You certainly don't want to be responsible for MORE babies coming into the world.
