99% sure that's a training vest thing that the guy is wearing and not real, but still pretty cool.

Not a house cat... but, this fucker comes out of nowhere. I'd shit my pants if this happened.

We get our dog trimmed - once a year in springtime for the last couple of years. She's hot and we also have problems with ticks (Aussie ticks are especially deadly - one strain we get can paralyse and kill a cat or dog - so the short summer cut helps to check her over after a walk in the bush). So anyhow we bring her home and one of our cats refuses to believe it's the same dog. The cat hisses and spits, runs under the bed and otherwise avoids the dog for days. It takes about 3 days before the cat finally accepts that it's the same old dog with just a different haircut.

So last week we have to take the same cat to the vets - he's a long haired cat and getting a bit mangy with some dreads around the back-end that I can't resolve (the cat is not very happy about me trying to get near his ass with a pair of scissors despite a few attempts) so we take him to the  vet and get him shaved (he now looks ridiculous - shaved body except for a puffy hair-do and fluffy lion's tail). We bring it home and sure enough - one of the other cats doesn't believe it's him anymore - and hisses at him for about 3 days before he finally decides it's the same cat.

I guess the animals are coming back from the vet/groomers with different smells as well as a different look, so it's a combo of visuals and smells that aren't quite right.

Anyhow, cats are pretty smart in some ways - in this regard they ain't so bright.

Most cats are more territorial than pack oriented. You just happen to be accepted as part of the territory. It's not true for all cats, or particularly Siamese cats.

My Siamese half breed I had to pick up from the animal shelter one day, and normally the cat doesn't care who you are, he's stressed and annoyed even to the owner. My Siamese balled right up into my arms and let me pet his belly and was happy as a bug despite where we were and he was definitely not happy in the cage before I got there.

Siamese are usually super friendly and vocal.  Awesome for pets.

I'm taking care of my brothers half-siamese something cat right now, shes fucking awesome. Not like most cats, or at least I'd like to think so.

For starters, she wipes her bum on the rug like a labradore, not sure why. She is super skiddish when it comes to sounds of any kind. You can clap your hands and have her scuttle to the back part of the house where she lives.

She is a little hefty though, I'd like her to lose some weight....

If she's wiping her bum, she probably has worms. Should get her checked out, cats don't show symptoms of being sick until they are very ill.
