    When you have a Siamese cat, apart from jealousy you may face another problem. They may tend to bully the other cat. Even after successfully introducing the new cat, there can be signs of bullying. When you do not take note of the signs then it can turn out to be aggressive.

    It is important to make your Siamese cat understand that such behaviour would not be tolerated. In case if your Siamese cat doesn’t allow you to show affection to the new cat then you also refuse to pet the Siamese cat.
