Beware of scolding them!
Cats in general and Siamese in particular they do not conceive that they are quarreled if they are not caught with their hands in the mass, as they say vulgarly.
An example: you catch it just at the moment that with its little fingernails you are smashing the edge of a sofa, right next to the brand new and immaculate scraper that you bought so that it would not gut the sofa. You must stun it against the destruction and utter a dark and silent Noooo! Then the cat understands that you do not like it to smash that side of the couch. Perhaps, he will think, that you would prefer that the damage be done on the opposite side, as if to compensate for the appearance of the soft furniture.
The important thing is to keep intact that cute toy that you have brought and that with so much effort resists scratching. To do this, teach him how to use the scraper.
If you do not quarrel at the moment of the crime, you will never understand why you put on a basilisk and cry on the sofa. There are some Siamese who are spiteful, so I will tell you a story recurrently lived with my first Siamese:
The story of Spock, the vengeful Siamese cat
The second pet that I had was a little Siamese cat that I adopted on the Ramblas in Barcelona last century. When I got home and got that tiny thing out of the perforated box, I saw that it had a pig tail; something quite usual in the Siamese of that time in establishments that offered pets from mediocre breeding places.
Apart from this detail, Spock was gorgeous and more alive than hunger. She spent hours fighting against herself reflected in the mirror that paneled a planter in the living room. He also liked football, since during the games he would go up on the television and head down he would try to catch the little ball with his claws until I got it down for the third or fourth time. That’s how her childhood went, when she grew up, became an adult and realized that neither fighting nor football produced the immeasurable pleasure that was achieved by smashing the sofa. My dear sofa.
I, who at that time was still young and did not know anything about positive reinforcement and other educational ways, I folded a newspaper and shouted like a madman I hit him with a loud noise to Spock who was dozing on a chair at that moment. The cat fled with the hairs on its tail, terrified. For about an hour, her hair was not seen in her usual area, which was the living room where the triplet was located, the television, the mirror planters and shelves of dark glass and stainless steel.
After a while I noticed that Spock was up on the top shelf of the smoked glass shelf. It was not usual for me to be sitting there, hieratic and staring at me. When I looked away from the television and fixed my surprised gaze directly on the cat, with a swift stroke of her paw, she pushed one of the multiple seashells in my collection, exposed on that shelf, into the void. Spock disappeared like a bolt of lightning after the vengeful wrongdoing and for a long time he did not dare to appear in the living room. When he returned, he climbed into my lap and through a sweet meow and a purr showed me that he had already forgiven me, and that it was her (after my wife) who sent her home.
This scene happened dozens of times, until I kept my long-suffering collection of shells inside a case. I also changed the sofa.
