Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

I might get another cat.  I am debating whether I should get a siamese or try a different breed this time.  Thoughts?

My old cat Clattipor was a giant Siamese, who weighed at his peak 22 lbs, with a 15” tail.  He was incredibly beautiful, and usually very friendly, but in my youth he would occasionally pounce me, bite or scratch if he was upset. Siamese cats can be nasty.  You did not want to make Por-Por angry.  But he was a very good pet, and he never went for my eyes or inflicted lasting damage.  He also never attacked anyone else.  I think the reason he would sometimes pounce on me was because I was 7 years old when I got him, and he identified with myself and my mother very extensively (he would try to vocalize our names), and if he was aggrieved he would come to either of us, and if it was a matter of food or his catbox requiring attention, he would bite.  On the other hand if he was cold, he would make a pathetic meow and jump into our lap or bed and then purr like the V8 on a Dodge Challenger.

He was a seal point shorthair applehead Siamese, not one of those ugly expensive Siamese with deformed heads historically preferred by breeders.  I am not a huge fan of modern Siamese.  I prefer the traditional Siamese, or Thai cats as the International Cat Association now calls them.

Por looked like this when he was young, before growing to massive size, except his rear legs always kind of dragged a bit (there are certain jumps smaller cats do which he would never do), and he had flared ears which caused one vet to believe the breeder had partially crossbred into his line a lynx (if so, this would explain his unusual size, his loud, fumbling gate, his strange behavior and his tendency to resort to violence if unhappy): https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/57/Mimbi3.JPG

Get a rescue. There are so many cats dying in shelters today that there's really no excuse for getting a cat from a breeder.

Get a rescue. There are so many cats dying in shelters today that there's really no excuse for getting a cat from a breeder.

An avenue worth looking into is adult cats in need of rehoming. They are a lot cheaper than a kitten and potentially easier to settle in (since there's no housebreaking), provided they take a liking to you. Not too many of them around, but a stroke of good luck is always a possibility.

I was researching the other day how we could possibly get a Norwegian Forest (the mister is allergic, so that and the Sphynx are the only options open to us). I found kittens going for £500-600, but there was also someone needing to rehome their queen, and asking for only £290, including all her gear.

I feel like selectively breeding these things into existence was a highly immoral act, but darned if they aren't still cute!

Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift.

I would love to get an adult Siamese cat and indeed have been looking at Siamese rescue websites for some time.  In the past, in addition to Clatipor, we had a female cat who lived in the neighborhood and was shared by us and unknown neighbors, who we called Polly; she was what I like to call a “dairy cat” (white with black spots, or black with white spots, or some vague admixture thereof, so as to resemble Holstein cattle), and was exceptionally friendly.  Presently we are on very good terms with a cat in the neighborhood, who recently had kittens.

Get a rescue. There are so many cats dying in shelters today that there's really no excuse for getting a cat from a breeder.

I get where you are coming from, but at the same time, I have to say, responsible breeders do provide a valuable service in terms of providing very high-quality dogs and cats you can’t find in a shelter, and preserving these unique breeds, which would die out if everyone had their cats spayed and neutered and only got cats from a shelter.  The Siamese cat is one such cat that one tends to either rescue ad an adult or get from a breeder; they do occasionally turn up in a shelter, but most are half breeds, like the kitten we rescued in 2004 that got stuck in our addict (she was very young; housebreaking her was also extremely easy).  More exotic breeds, like Persians and Himalayans, and also certain rare varieties of Siamese cats like chocolate or seal point cats, are another example of a cat you would need a breeder for, unless you got really lucky and found an adult cat to rescue.  Also Manx cats usually one needs a breeder for, although my grandparents lived in a neighborhood that was swarming with manx and chocolate-point Siamese cats due to irresponsible neighbors.  There was even a poor Siamese-Manx hybrid in the neighborhood who was Siamese in appearance except for the characteristic stubby tail.

But if one wants a Tabby kitten, or a gold tiger striped kitten, or a black or white kitten, or a black and white kitten, or a Calico cat, or one of several varieties of grey cats, or what the British call a “Mog”, like Larry the Chief Mouser, or is simply indifferent to the type of cat to be obtained, then there is indeed no excuse for not going to a shelter and adopting a cat otherwise likely to be terminated.

Also, for the other breeds, I do think it a good idea to look for adult cats (which can still be very young) before buying a kitten.  But if one does want a Himalayan kitten or a Seal Point Siamese kitten, just as if one wants a high quality dog like a poodle, or a purebred Labrador, or Golden Retriever, or a Siberian Husky, or an Akita, or a Great Dane, or any other specific breed, then the use of a breeder is likely to be needed.  However, the continued existence of catteries and puppy mills is detestable.

I am also a huge fan of no-kill animal shelters.

One other rewarding experience from my childhood; we came across an adorable white-bellied tabby cat who looked very ill.  We took him to the vet where it was determined he had been poisoned.  They were able to save his life and he spent the night recovering at our house (Clatipor was not happy about this, and the poor thing needed time to recover bladder control, etc, so we cared for him in one of the bathrooms).  The next day we were able to place this beautiful 18 month-old cat with a college student who was thrilled to have him.   

I was blessed with an exceptionally good childhood, but that memory stands out as one of the most special moments.   Being able to save a poisoned tabby cat was particularly rewarding.

You'd be surprised. A FB friend fosters kittens full-time, and at any given time she has several Siamese in her care, of all sorts of point colour combinations. Even owners of purebreds can be too ignorant or too cheap to spay their cats. :(
