Things About Siamese Cats You Should Know

Updated on February 19, 2018

Choosing the Right Cat

The first thing most people do when considering a new pet, is to Google the information. Haunting the pages of experienced owners, I have talked myself out of owning (for now) pigs, sugar gliders, tarantulas, mice, rabbits, goats, chickens, and horses. I'm not trying to sway your opinion of Siamese cats, but I do want you to make an educated decision and do what's best for everyone.

I know the lure of big blue eyes might be enough to sucker you into a 15-20 year sentence, but it's important that you're happy so your bundle of kitty will be. Trust me, the last thing you want is an angry Siamese!

Number One: The Siamese Wail

Unless this is the first article that you've read about Siamese cats, you probably have learned about the vocalization skills they possess. Please listen––I don't want you to take this lightly. Let me help you understand just how infuriating and wonderful their little voices are.

When we first brought our baby kitten home, we thought she was broken. It had been years since I'd owned a Siamese and I'd forgotten just how talkative they are. When I would hold her, she would look deeply into my eyes and bellow inches from my face, with no regard to her fishy breath assaulting my nostrils. I almost brought her to the back to the vet because I was afraid she was sick.

If you believe cats are quiet and stick mostly to themselves, prepare to be astonished. Siamese are regular 'chatty Cathys', and enjoy nothing more than to tell you about their day. Most of them never tire from describing all of the naps they took during the day, all of the kernels of food they ate, all of the bugs they saw, all of the thoughts they had, all of the furniture they destroyed––in great detail.

They genuinely love the sound of their own voices. The good thing about this is that you will always have someone to 'talk' with. I know this will make me sound like a crazy cat lady (which I guess I am when it comes to Rain, my cat), but she will carry on a 'conversation' until I get bored and wander away. When she is in a good mood, her meows are sweet and subtle. If she is angry, they are brain-splitting sharp.

And now the truth––the Siamese caterwaul is very loud. Especially if they really want something. There is no wall, door, or fence than can effectively block the sound from traveling directly into your ear canals. If you believe that you will be able to sleep through it, you're sadly mistaken. It's more obnoxious than a baby's cry, your neighbor's mower early Saturday morning, or even your mother in law's laugh.

Rain's Meow

Number Two. Siamese Cats Don't Like to Be Alone

If you want a cat because they are independent and will be happy without you, then a Siamese may not be for you. The ones that I have known (I've owned three), absolutely loved to be cuddled, held, and fussed over constantly. Rain will not go longer than an hour without sitting in my lap, or sauntering into whatever room I'm in to make sure I'm still her faithful servant.

Our family's Siamese cat when I was growing up, China, is now 15 years old. Over the years, she has put me in my place many times. But no matter how much I bothered her, she would always sit in my lap and treat me to her thunderous purr. Children are not the gentlest creatures towards pets, so the fact that China still loved me so much is no small feat for a feline.

The idea that they are aloof and standoffish is very wrong. Rain and China do not like being alone. When we get back from vacation, Rain smothers us in affection. She smothers us anyway, but she especially has a difficult time when we aren't there.

If you want a cat that doesn't particularly care whether you exist or not, don't get a Siamese. It seems like they need more love and affection than most dogs I've met. If you aren't willing to give what your cat believes is enough attention, you will certainly pay the price in bad cat behavior.

Happy Siamese

Number Three: Siamese Cats Cannot Be Trained

Here is the biggest secret of them all: Siamese cats are extremely difficult to train. I have literally tried everything. Maybe this is a Siamese thing, or maybe it's a cat thing, and I'm crazy for even trying to train an animal that believes it is superior to...well, basically everything.

When I tried the water bottle tactic the 'experts' advised, she just squinted her eyes and continued doing exactly what I didn't want her to do. No matter how long I 'stuck to my guns', she held out longer. I finally gave up, knowing that I'd been defeated yet again by a cat.

I tried 'swatting' at her, because I thought if I mimicked her behavior she would get the point in her native language. Nope. She just looked at me like I was insane and learned that it was okay to swat me. Big mistake.

When I began reinforcing positive behavior with kitty cookies, she believed what I really wanted was for her to annoy me as frequently as possible for another treat.

I even tried confining her as a punishment. She just went to sleep and was annoyed when I woke her up to 'free' her.

The only thing I've found somewhat effective is cuddling her when she doesn't want to be cuddled, or in a way that she doesn't approve. That means I give her tons of hugs and sing her songs about how lovely she is. It's guaranteed to win me at least 10 minutes of alone time.


Basically, Siamese cats are wonderful. If they could talk, they would probably tell us they are God's greatest gifts. I wouldn't disagree.

      my cat "Chance" siamese male senior has thryoid disease and has to get his medicine via the inside ear lobe. he now is standoffish due to that. it doesn't hurt probably tickles if anything. but he doesn't want to be up in my arms like he did. he comes to me much more in the daytime then night. then waits until I pick him up and spread it on. he doesn't fight at all then I let him go and he runs and comes back.

      I have had Lynx Point Siamese (2), and, currently, have. 10 1/2 yr young, Seal Point, Madeline.

      It has been my experience, that if you get a quiet kitten, they will be quiet adults. If your Siamese kitten is noisy, then you will have the vocalizing, chatty cathy, kind as is the feline of the arthor's.

      Madeline talks, but, only if she has something important to say.

      We converse, all the time, but, I will ask if she's hungry, and, I get a single, little meow.

      If I have to go on errands, and, am gone longer than expected, I do get a little more vocalization, unless she napped most of the time.

      She will come up to me and ask to cuddle, which is adorable.

      She is just a sweet, and, beautiful on the inside, as she is on the outside.

      I highly recommend a Siamese companion.

      How do you take care of your Siamese cat that is scared of everything and only comes to one person? My Siamese cat rarely comes out in the day, and when it does come out, it is when every one is gone or quiet. We got him as a baby when he came out of the bushes. He was a feral kitten when we got him. He only likes me and sometimes my mom. My dad stepped on his tail when he was old enough to com out =. Is that why he's afraid of everything?

      Can Siamese handle a person who like to scream and yell st the top of their lungs throw things slams doors. If not what health issues can it cause. Can it cause them to begin having high blood pressure? And if so when they sense your stressed or someone yelling can it spike their blood pressure to go up

      I've wondered about that a few times, and you may very well be right. It's the old nature vs. nurture argument, all over again. Of course, everything is relative and maybe I've just known very unique cats. I've had three Siamese, and they have all been similar in personality. Two of the three were adopted from shelters, so I didn't get a chance to raise one of them.

      That being said, I've also owned five non-Siamese cats, and their personalities were very different from what I've described in this article. So beyond nature/nurture I think it's possible that Siamese cats may just be more docile and affectionate that many other cat breeds. Just like I believe most people are inherently good with the wish to be respectful to others.

      However of course there are those wild cards, that small percentage of people that don't quite fit the mold, and yes, I think you're right, we (living beings) are all different in our sameness, with small changes from being to being which can be summed into a basic personality/character type.

      In my experience with my Siamese, when you say aloof and standoffish, I think "sounds like my cat. I think you may be interpreting your unique experience as standard, when there is no standard, in my opinion. And why would there be...are all people kind, or impolite? It's a mixed bag with lots of different people, and lots of different Siamese cats.

      J subscribe to the belief that a cats behavior can be directly traced to it's upbringing.

Also he's not afraid of getting wet and will even go out in the rain and play. We've been together now for 3 yrs.

      I have a Siamese and I agree with the majority of the quality article that you've posted. But, I don't fully agree with the training aspect. I taught Oscar, (my 1 year & couple month old cat) that, poor behavior will result in consequences. I don't abuse animals by any means. But, a swift backhand to his ass is enough to get his attention. I've been his only owner since his was 4 weeks old. The word "No" and the snap of my fingers is all I have to do now to reprimand him now.

      I had a siamese as a child and now at 53 and a dairy farm owner, I have not one, but 3 "siamese tabby" cats. These are siamese that came out of regular tabby barn cats. She looks like a regular siamese but with white socks a a small patch of white on her nose.I had no idea of the chatty trait until a friend who is a vet tech asked me if she is a "talker". Astonished, I of course said "YES!!!" She comes in the house usually at supper time and has complete conversations with my husband. She only talks when she is on the floor and not being held . Now for the nuzzling! She was just on my husbands lap and came running across a tv table to rub herself all over my face as I try to type this! Having a farm, we have about 20 some other cats. She does not interact with the other cats or play with them much now that she is a year old. As a kitten of 5 or 6 months old, another cat had a litter when it was way too cold out, so they were raised in the house. She gave these kittens a schooling and toughened them up!! Now MIssy is a year old and we have two more up and coming siamese kittens. One is a few months old while the other just two weeks. really finding this an interesting breed to come out of a Tabby. I found the history of a lady in New York in the 1930s who bred pure siamese cats and one got bred by a tabby. It came out with white socks and she liked the results, so kept breeding them this way and they have filtered through the tabby breed throughout the United States over the past many decades.

      Directed to "siamese", below: Being as I have had many rescue and stray cats over the years (including out and out ferals), I have seen a lot of different cat temperaments and situations. I too am not inclined to unhome a cat just because they are difficult, and have put up with a lot of crazy stuff from individual cats. I have had anywhere from two to four cats at one time, and they mostly worked out. But it can take quite a toll on your other cat family members, no question, when you have "insanity" in the family. What I have discovered is that there are some cats that have mental problems, just like people. Or organic brain damage that occurred before you even had the cat or kitten. Some cats can be beautifully tamed and socialized and calmed. Some can't be, they retain a certain impulsive, instinctive desire to get tough with you and strike out from fear. These cats often seem like bullies, but they are actually just very afraid of any noise or smell or change around them, and they are easily triggered by what I call "irritable brain". (And there are still some that are just jerks, NOT scared, and ARE bullies and very dominant, but you'll know that when you find it.) The vast majority of even troubled cats mellow out (I once figured out over the years, since kidhood, I have known over 40 cats quite well, so I've seen a few!!), but there will always be one or two along the way that don't develop into cats you can deal with. And you do have to be wary about the impact it can have on your other cats---cats can be great teachers for each other, and I had terrific luck with this---but some cats just don't handle pet life very well. I keep learning cats, and learning what works and what doesn't work, and often it is about patience and seeing who the cat is, and making sure your home environment supports their healthy development. I have had half-Siameses and they are fun cats, but the one I have now---a dear little rescue, just turned a year old---is a powerful little handful that needs constant feeding and entertainment. She is one long muscle, this little one, and tires us all out. She is very healthy and lives to play and eat and roughhouse. She is also an electrical cord-chewer...I have had to cat-proof such things and am still finding new vices she is indulging clawing the protective cover on my tablet today when I didn't want to get up and feed her three hours after her last mini-meal. It looks like a lion got after it. But at least the tablet is unharmed! Adorable stinkin' brat.

      We have a seal point siemese cat. We adopted him st 2mths. He was so sick we thought he was close to death, upper respiratory infection, could hardly breath, we have our Lil Bullitt lots of Love. He so special, still struggles with respiratory issues, our concern is he randomly attacks my husband, just wants to bite & has many times, every night we go to bed he runs around like speedy Gonzales everywhere. Then we're in bed here we go, starts running over us, jumps on & off the bed focused on my husband, occassionally focuses on my to attack & bite. Confussing thing is he loves my husband up always, he follows my husband around, he wants to be where we are, he's a great talker, love him so much, the random attacking & biting concerns up...have any ideas for us why....thank you

      With her few years ago. I thought I hated cats because of hers. After I left and moved with my partner who had 2 cats (angora and tabby) I discovered that I just hated Siamese. I officially adopted my cats few months ago and absolutely am sure of my love for them. But there is no way I am ever adopting a Siamese.

      I took in a stray who the vet determined to be half Siamese. He's got the big blue eyes. Man does he talk when he's out of water, wants more food or wants attention, you know it. I have two other cats, both female, a mainecoon mix and a tortie. They are both also extremely loving and loyal. But jack is so jealous!! If I am petting or playing with one of the female cats, he saunters over and is right in top of us. When I have company over, doesn't matter how many people, he works the room so that every single person has pet him lol. But the best part? He's extremely cuddly. Every night he follows me up to bed, lies on his back with his head on a pillow waiting for a tummy rub, he just purrs up a storm and reaches with his paws for my face. It's too cute. My mainecoon gives kisses when I ask her to. Ok, I guess I am a crazy cat lady lol.

      My seal point Siamese is 10 months old and still as wild as the day we got him! He needs several hours a day of constant feather wand attention or he's an insufferable jerk the rest of the day and terrorizes our other two older cats. I know he's just needing to play but IT'S ALL THE TIME! At least he never meows, I mean like, EVER. He meowed once the day we brought him home as a 10 week old kitten and never again after that.

      He's so insanely curious about everything I'm doing. When I'm cooking, he wants to *sniff* each vegetable, fruit, meat, spice ... it's like he's collecting data for when he returns to his home planet lol. He never licks or eats anything, just a nice sniff and he's done, looks at me like, "Oh that's very nice, you may continue." or "OMG you guys eat that?!"

      He isn't very cuddly, slowly coming around to that I hope. He's very entertaining as long as we can keep his energy drained so he doesn't stalk the other cats. Thanks Jackson Galaxy, I learned a lot of tips from him.

      My siamese daily meows and leads me from room to room, going in and out of the house too (he is an outdoors/indoors cat because we live in a safe village area with no wildlife and few cars). I don't know what he wants, do you have any idea?

      It might be affection, but he is very cuddly and we pet him and cuddle him constantly, he sleeps in my bed curled up against me, he sits in my lap whenever I sit down and I let him, he drapes across my shoulders like a fashionable shawl.... so I don't think he just wants more pets, because he gets them constantly (unless he wants to be left alone).

      It's driving me bonkers because I cannot figure out what he needs :(

      When I was a child I wanted that cute ( white female) Persian in the commercial and my dad brought me a male, certified American cat fanciers ( (?) Persia. (Sorry now a dog owner) male, a lynx who eventually was no where near white. He ( Bright eyes) made his beautiful music at night. I believe my parents learned more about the breed, mated him with my brother'so chocolate siamese and they had gorgeous kittens! I almost became a vet. Still love medicine, but deal with humans and love animals all the same. Thank you author James Herriot! These animals are smart, loving ( taught mine to climb trees for treats and pose,...) and if my dog wouldn't chase them, would gladly have a cat in my house!

      siamese 17 months ago

      I have a 7 year old seal female, and she's an absolute doll. We originally got her to calm our other cat - who was a literal devil - I rescued a kitten, who became a very scary cat - he kept on attacking my mother and I starting from 2 years old - with very deliberate and serious wounds. Before, as a kitten, he was abused (mom died, he was malnourished, and some teenagers hurt him) and even though we got him at 5 weeks old, he had already shut himself off... He was very playful, but he lacked affection, would constantly hiss and was very fear-driven prior to being 2.

      He started to attack my mother at random moments (a wolf spider in the bathroom, bringing back groceries from the store, a knock on the door, etc), turning into 3-4 serious attacks each year. At 9 years old, after 3 months of being chilled, he tried to attack my neck... and my mother intervened.

      Anyway, my mom and I thought about giving him away to a non-kill shelter, but after talking with him, they said he would be killed because he was too dangerous. We tried to find a farm for him, but he was an indoor cat (with very long-hair) and needed a special diet (otherwise he would bleed in his urine). We spoke to vets who said to "put him down" and then we decided we wouldn't (couldn't) kill him... In his favor, although he was attacking us, he was ultra friendly and protective to our pet mouse, and was exceedingly gentle to the rodents he "found" in our house.

      Anyway, so we decided to get a little Siamese girl, and our little girl taught our rescue how to meow and how to sniff. She tried to snuggle and play, but he refused. She picked up on our rescue's insanity - she became very cautious, and honestly her growth has been stunted by our other cat, even though we mainly had them separated. He passed away - and we recently got another Siamese kitten.

      I just wanted to say, that seeing our Siamese female deal with this pure, friendly kitten is heartbreaking. Its heartbreaking to think of our rescue, and how those formative baby weeks couldn't have been changed with even 9 years of constantly working with him. And its unfair that my little girl is so psychologically scarred. It really brings home how we all walked, moved, talked very carefully in our own "den", and were prepared to deal with a hint of warning sign, to widened pupils, a tail wave, a hiss, or a full-fledged attack.

      My little Siamese girl accepted our new kitten within 12 hours - we knew she wouldn't hurt him. She didn't approach him, but watched him from a distance, when he got his head caught in a basket and cried in pain, she was right up there to see what was wrong and to help, and she's so very protective. I know it will take time for her to feel free to play, and for her to trust another cat (she only knew one insane one), but I'm glad she has this opportunity. I'm sad it took me so long to see how hurt this made my Siamese, and I'm sad that the little rescue I tried so hard to rehabilitate was forever, a lost, pain-inflicting cause...

      We come from a household of die-hard cat lovers. I can see now how some people would hate or fear cats. I still can't see killing cats (no matter what clean terms you'd want to call it), and I know that there are many great strays that are adopted at all ages and exposures, but I do see myself sticking with breeders or loving households, for a long time coming. I want to know my kitty who I'll be committed to for the (hopefully long) duration of their life, is a kitty who was loved, loves and can love.

      I have a manx black cat, and she had a litter of kittens with a neighborhood cat, and 2 of the kittens were Siamese. This has happened twice before where she has a Siamese colored kitten. I kept the Siamese girl, and I was wondering if you thought that these tips would still apply to her? She has a very Siamese personality and features, including ear and face shape.

      Another problem is when I pet her she meows at me quite alot. She will start purring and then interuppt her purring with a loud meow. I am not sure if she is 'talking' to me or if she is annoyed and wants me to move my hand to another spot.

      I have recently adopted a Blue Point Siamese cat (about 3 months ago now) and she is absolutely beautiful and lovely natured but she is still very skittish. She's not literally scared of everything all the time but she is easily spooked by sudden loud sounds and noises outside. You can tell when she's scared of something because she won't follow me around like she usually would and she just moans under the couch. We have had 2 Siamese (Lynx Point) in the past and they were a lot like this too. Is this normal for the breed or have I just had an anxious batch of them?

      Our Siamese is 7 yes old. He is the sweetest and most docile cat indoor. But when he goes outside and we tell him to go inside he gets angry. We were working in the front yard and all of a sudden he was transformed into a fierce beast and started attacking us. My wife had lacerations in all extremities. I don't understand the reason for that behavior and I don't know what to do. We love him so much but his bites were very dangerous. We had to go to the ER.

      I just bought an 8 week old Siamese kitten and was curious as to why he can't go 10 minutes of being alone without meowing non-stop. Or why he likes to wake me up every few hours of the night biting me and meowing. As i can see this is all part of their little inherited personalities. He is definitely an outgoing little guy with a strong personality.

      @CRCondina, thank you so much for your kind words!

      @Jawad, it's really hard to say. I would hate splitting them up, too. Not only that, but even if you did get just the female, there is no guarantee that they would get along. Maybe the brother and sister would gang up on Stewie, but its not likely. Since they're kittens, Stewie would most likely get his enjoyment from watching them play with each other, thankful that they aren't involving him in their antics.

      When my Big Girl (in the pictures above) started seeming lonely, I got her a male companion. For a very long time she absolutely hated him. I adopted him as a kitten to give her the opportunity to bond with him, but her answer was to beat him up every time he had the audacity to darken her doorway. They were all her doorways, of course.

      Now, two years later, she love-tolerates him. I think it is because he is now an adult, and thus a little more mature. She'll even give him little baths when she believes no one is looking.

      The most important thing is how you introduce Stewie to the new kittens. Cats aren't like dogs, they don't forgive. So keep the kittens in their own space, allowing Stewie to sniff the door and your shirt at his own pace. Slowly blend their scents together, and very slowly introduce them. By slowly, I mean weeks...maybe even months. There may be fireworks for a few weeks, but after the initial adjustment period everyone should be fine.

      If it seems like any of your cats are especially distraught, please seek the help of your veterinarian. Thank you so much for commenting!

      I share a 3 bedroom apartment with my 2 younger brothers. We are all working adults and are out for 8-9 hours on weekdays. We have a neutered 5 month old Siamese named Stewie. He was a little ill lately and our vet told us to get him a companion cat preferably a female. We came across 2 Siamese kittens that were 8 weeks old, a boy and a girl. Those guys are inseparable and being so adorable we have our hearts set on both of them. We just can't figure out if we would make the situation worse by getting both the kittens and making Stewie super jealous and left out. Will the brother and sister gang up on Stewie? Should we just get the girl?

      I loved this article. I laughed at it all because it perfectly describes my cat, sushi. She's a seal point siamese. She is loving and cuddle and has the MOST BRAIN SPLITTING MEOW EVER!!!! But, I wouldnt change a damn thing about her. She LOVES to talk to me. But she sounds like shes smoked for most of her life. She loves when I tell her shes beautiful and LOVES to hunt me and chase me. (It doesnt take much time before she wears herself out.) I never considered a siamese, but now that i have one. I dont know if I will ever adore another breed so much. She is simply my world.

      My mom's friend got herself a Siamese before being depoyed. And once she returned the little fellow had attached himself to my youngest daughter.

      We jokingly say that she is his human. But in reality that's is the truth. He sleeps with he, walks with her outside, talks to her through the bathroom door when she showers, and waits for her on the porch when the bus is dropping her off from school. He comes when she calls, sits down when she tells him to, gets on "his pillow " she but on her bed for him to sleep on when she pats the pillow and says "Come on Minion let's go to bed."

      It is a bond I found strange for a cat to have with a human. I mean it's like myself and my APBT.

      But the love that I feared would be lost and the heartache that they would feel when my mom's friend returned and wanted to move out and take "her cat" with her prompted me to buy the cat at the cost she paid for him. I honestly believe that was the best thing for my daughter and her Minion. He is nearly attached to her hip.

      She even being 6.5 years old knows that he will live a long life. And that he picked her. She saves her money and buys him a new collar ever 6 months. "It has to be on of those that breaks if he gets caught so he don't choke " .

      I wish I could share a picture of them it's just to cute. I never thought about a Siamese cat to be an addition to our home but he has shown me that they are a great breed and are very loyal.

      My 3 year old male Siamese, Indiana Jones, is talkative and loving. He is crated every night in our bedroom because he gets into trouble during the night due to being able to open any door. Our three story home is great for him because squirrels jump through the trees in front and he runs from window to window, up and down stairs, to keep up with them. He is leash trained and enjoys chasing bugs, frogs, and dogs out of our yard. He is a great friend for my husband and me.

      I have a 2 year old Siamese and everyone in the family adores her. She loves to fetch and boy is she a cuddle bug and very vocal when she wants attention. We have 4 cats all together but have the time and room for them. Siamese like all animals are a lot of work and money but well worth it. I encourage anyone who is getting a Siamese or any animal to fully research and listen to this article this lady hase Sianese's needtoknows down to a T.

      Aw- that video with the your sweet dog is priceless. Love that little swat. I have a siamese and an oriental. They're the best cats a person could want. Interestingly, my siamese barely has a meow at all. A weird genetic flaw of some sort I suppose. The sounds that come out are like monkey squeaks. Like a quiet chimpanzee. The oriental, on the other hand- he can be loud.

      Enjoyed your page : )

      Thank you so much for sharing! I will definitely have to try this. I know she certainly doesn't tolerate rude behavior (if it's me doing it, and not her), so it may just work.

      That's amazing! I would absolutely love for you to share your training trips on here, if possible. My rotten little Siamese has me trained, but vice versa has proved impossible for me.

      I have just discovered a technique of having some peace from your Siamese cat! I have a 8 yr old Siamese and she constantly yowls and moans to get what she wants which is either one of two things; food or attention. When she is meowing trying to get what she wants, take something that makes a loud, hard shaking or rattling noise, i had a small box of mints, but make sure it really makes a noise! Whenever she meows, shake your item to make the noise as soon as she meows. I think its as if you are interrupting the cat. However rude that may be, her constant meowing 24/7 isn't pleasant either. Also cats are very proud creatures and if the cat is used to always getting her/his way, this noise should put a stop to the constant yowling Hope this helps with some of you out there! :)

      I just adopted a seal point Siamese kitten. She is very petit, but has a very loud meow. She will do the pur and meow, the long drawn out meow, and a very cute a tiny meow. These are all the ones I've heard so far! She does love attention!! When I leave her while she falls asleep, she will get up in a couple of minutes and start looking for me and meowing. I do to know jow she will handle it when I'm going to get a job!

      To be honest, I may be several things. First, I would make certain that it is a behavioral issue and not a physical problem like a kidney infection or something.

      It may be that she doesn't like her litter. My cats hate anything that isn't what they are used to. It may also be that you aren't keeping the litter box clean enough for her standards. Sometimes when I haven't had time to clean in a while, my Rainstorm will kindly poop in the tub.

      And last of all, has anything changed in her life? A new person moving in or something like that? Sometimes stress will cause cats to act outside of what is typically their behavior.

      My brown pointer 13yr old cat, recently adopted(4 months)

      she has taken to urinating in the bathroom, What should I do about this problem. She will not use the sandbox. I wonder if it is because she doesn't like the wooden chips?

      What advise ,
