Prince Ming (Flame Point Siamese)

Prince Ming is 3 years old and a Flame Point Siamese cat. I got him in October 2004 at the Animal Shelter. Ming likes to sleep with me every single night and play with Baby Jane our dog. Ming suffers from allergies and had to get steroid injections every 3 months. It is easy for people to say 'you should just have him put to sleep' but I love Ming and Ming loves me. If it only costs me $20 bucks every few months to prolong his life so that he is comfortable and by my comapanion then so be it!

I haven't heard of a Flame Point Siamese before. Is this a newly recognized variation?

Is that a new breed of cat, I haven't heard of it? ANYWAY good for you for getting your pet from the animal shelter & good for you again by getting him his steriod shots to be more comfortable in life!

Animals are also Gods children and we as humans are to take care of them all...

$80 a year on shots is not bad I do not think, I imagine your friends spend more then that on beer and snack foods.

My male cat has slept with me and nightly for nearly 10 years now, he is my furry child.

He looks up at me with such loving and trusting eyes, as IF to say "I love you so much. You are wonderful to coexist with and you do mean everything to me."

How can a person not love them like you would a human child? Perhaps someone who is heartless and you are not that way evidently so, keep up your good work with your kitty. P. S. I love his name.

Oh, he's definitely worth spending money on - he's beautiful! I've never seen a cat his color. I have a solid black Bombay cat (with yellow eyes) who sleeps with me at night. They make good bedfellows, don't they?

What a sweet cat. I also have a flame point Siamese that has allergy problems. I have to give him a hormone pill every week. He sleeps with me every night too! His name is "Bones," because when we found him, he was nothing but "skin and bones!"

Is there a test you had to find out about his allergies? We just got a new flame point and he keeps sneezing......probably allergies?

You have a beautiful cat. I'm glad to hear that you love Prince Ming enough to take the time and the money to prolong his life. I have a flame point siamese as well named Yoda. My other cat named Charlie is allergic to almost every cat food out there. Costs me about $30 a small bag. I couldn't imagine putting him down. Good luck to you and Prince Ming.

Hi,

Here's my flame point kitty. His name is NEMO. He is an awesome cat and suffers from allergies and asthma. We took him to a vet that specializes in cats and he takes a pill every other day to keep breathing under control. This is a common problem with this breed of cat. He loves to cuddle in bed and sqeeks and plays with toys even fetches. These cats are so beautiful and fun to have around. We're in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I recently was given a Flame Point Siamese kitten. Someone had dumped him and his brothers in a bag on the side of the road. My friend found them, but she couldn't keep them due to her dogs.

We have not named him yet, so any suggestions would be good =]

This is Flamer. No I didn't name him. The girls at my work did. He's a Flame Point, a fat flame point. 15 lbs. Seems to be the running trend for these cats. He is a year old, has 2 brothers and 3 sisters (all of different breeds). He was a rescue cat that came to my work with 3 other siblings. He fit in my pocket and I took him home. He is VERY needy for human attention and has anxiety issues if he can't be with you, IE if you go to the bathrooom. He is very loveable, a huge ham, and hyperventilates when he's tired. He's very smart as we play fetch the ball at night before bed. I wouldn't trade him in for anything though he can be a really pain in the butt at times.

Suggestions to all owners out there... From an Registered Veterinary Technician.

If your pet suffers from allergies, have them tested. Sometimes it's a food issue, sometimes it's a environmental issue.

Feed your pet appropriately. Don't overfeed. Fat cats may look cute, but they are not healthy. Flame points seem to be a bit on the chunky side, so if you notice your pet packing on the pounds, cut back on your food. Give more wet food as it has more protein in it than dry and cats are obligate carnivores. They need their protein. Don't skimp out on their essential amino acids either. L-Carnatine is important in a cats diet. If you have questions regarding your cat's diet, ask your local vet for some tips.

For kittens, Rough em up. The more your handle them and play with them the more socialable they will be. Play with their ears, their feet, yank on their tail (with care). Prepare them to be handled by a veterinarian who will poke an prod them. Flame points are very smart cats. You can teach them almost anything. Mine gives kisses, plays fetch, and walks on a leash. Start them off young. Give them lots of attention and they will give you all the lvoe you ever wanted.

If you need to potty train your kitten, after a good meal, place them in the litter box so they know to go in there. Scratch about, show them how. A mother will instinctively show their kits these things so now you have to play mom. Dont' be afraid to look at your pets discards. It will let you know if your pet it healthy. Signs of diarrhea or lack of urination can mean problems and may require a veterinarians attention. Monitor your kittens eating and drinking habits. Drinking little or LOTS could mean a problem. Lack of interest in food could also indicate your pet may be sick.

Make sure you spay or neuter your pet by 4-6 months of age. This will greatly reduce your pets chance of reproductive illness's later down the road. Make sure you keep your pet up to date on vaccination and don't be afraid to ask what the laws are requiring vaccination for your county. Every county is different. If your pet does go outside, make sure it is spayed or neutered and is current on all vaccination (Rabies, Leukemia, Upper Repiratory). You don't want your pet to contract antything. Also have your pet checked for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) / Feline Aids (FIV) if the are ever in a fight or have an abcess.

If nothing else, Love your pet. Cats are very devoted creatures to their owners. Your show them love, they will give it back in ways you never thought or least expect. Even the aloof cat will love you unconditionally if you show them love. If you have any questions regarding your pet, call your local veterinarian for advice. That's what they get paid for.

Enjoy your pet!

This is my 6 month old Flame Point Siamese Cat named "Washer." Congrats on adopting yours at a shelter. Mine is also a shelter adoption. He is very active and vocal and loves to play! I would not trade him or my other shelter adopted cat for the world!!! My other cat is a Female Tortoiseshell Domestic Short hair named "Dryer." Both cats get along great and are very active and goofy. I love them to death!

my tortoise shelled calico named Rosie, is the granddaughter of a pure black cat named Mimi. Rosey has recently given birth to two striped orange and white males, one black and white female, and one male, flame tipped Siamese. the flame tipped Siamese is pure white except for his nose and ears. His tail is orange and gray not blotchy, but smokey.

How does a tortoise shelled calico give birth to a flame point Siamese? There were two flame point Siamese but one died due to the fact that he was not fully developed. They are all about 7 weeks old, we gave away all except the flame point Siamese. Is it genetic, because I thought they had to be bred?

To Elissa,15: When cats have kittens, it is possible that each kitten can have a different father, thus the different appearances of kittens in the same litter. Your Rosie mated with a flame point Siamese male, or with a male carrying the flame point genes as a recessive.
