Realize this is a nationwide forum, so without telling people you are (evidently, from phone number) in Anchorage, Ak, not likely to get meaningful responses.


I would suggest an animal rescue society - first, why pay for a kitten when there are thousands out there for free (or just a neutering/shot fee). Also, many adoption agencies (and some government animal shelters) have return policies that let you bring it back in a reasonable period (typically 1-2 weeks) if it does not work out. That could be very important if the Saimese does not accept it - and Siamese in particular are known for not being real accepting of new cats in their houses. Many adoption agencies also would allow you to bring your Siamese along for a visit before taking the kitten home, to see if there is likely to be acceptance in a "neutral" setting before bringing the kitten into the Siamese's territory.


Lots of free kittens and cats on Craigslist, too, and presumably at your local animal control center.


Did you talk to your vet about the male/female issue, and which your cat might accept better. Also talk to vet about separation protocols until it is clear the new one is accepted - especially night and when people are not in the house. Otherwise you may come home to a dead kitten. May require isolating the kitten in a locked room when you are away for some days or weeks.


And of course, NEUTER. The last thing the world needs is a couple dozen more unwanted cats.
