We have two chocolate point siamese cats named BUD (on the left) and BEAN (on the right). They are half brothers that are nine years old. They are very affectionate animals that think they are the same as people. They understand several English commands and respond when their names are called (not to "KITTY"). They are very attached to one another and curl up together when napping, which is often.
BUD is larger of the pair, about 10 pounds, and is very solid and muscular. He often goes around the house giving loud howls. He thinks that everybody is his friend, even strangers, and can be a pest.
BEAN weighs just over 7 pounds and is soft, although he can hold his own against BUD during discussions. He is quieter but has an unusual voice when he does speak up. He is wary of strangers and will disappear there are too many people around. BEAN, as you can see, has a dental problem that is apparently hereditary. His ears are much bigger than his brother`s are. He also has a couple of quirks - he chews on the end of his tail (it is frequently wet) and he has an old rag that is his security blanket (he drags it around the house and sleeps with it nearby).
They get along very well and never quarel over food. On the other hand they do have occasional discussions that involve running, touching, punching, and howling but rarely any damage.
"THE CATS FROM HELL"
We have always liked this snapshot taken when they were pretty young, before their color fully developed. They have unusual eyes in that it is very difficult to see their true colors of blue. Their eyes pick up the slightest amount of light and get a fierce glow.
