Hello cat lovers! <3 I'm writing because I don't really know where else I can look for the answer. So the thing is: my boyfriend has a siamese cat. She's cute little creature, little bit over 1.5 year. Very friendly and I love her with all my heart. Unfortunately every 1,5 - 2 months she is in heat which lasts little bit less than 2 weeks. It is insane. She is very vocal even in her 'normal' stage but when she gets 'in the mood' it's very hard to put up with her. We simply can't watch the movie without her screaming or sleep through the night (we have studio apartment so she sleeps with us) - earplugs doesn't help! She is very tiny for her age and neither of us (meaning my boyfriend and I) is planning to make her a momma. Theoretically the only way is fixing her. I said theoretically because my boyfriend doesn't want to go for it. Before having Ana, he had her dad, siamese called Stefan but unfortunately Stefan died while getting fixed. There was no complications, everything went smoothly and he just didn't wake up Veterinarian said she did everything right, there was no mistake, but SIAMESE CATS ARE DIFFICULT TO FIX BECAUSE OF SOME SPECIAL GENE or something. Of course my boyfriend was attached to Stefan and had hard time when he died so now he is very afraid of fixing Ana. I had my cat fixed, so have my friends and I want to ask you if whatever this veterinarian said it's true or she was just trying to cover her mistake by medical speech. Are Siamese breed 'special' in this case that it's a roulette when putting a cat to sleep for a procedure? That she may not wake up just like her dad didn't? These words stuck very much in my boyfriends head but I am going crazy. Every 1.5 month same story. I. Really. Can't. Stand. It. ps. Sorry for my english, it's not my native language.
