MILLIE
This girl is all Tortitude! She loves attention and chatting with you and playing "oops I dropped my toys off the top of the cat tree so you can pick them up 20 times or I'll cry like a baby" with you. She is also a cat treat fiend--you can hide them anywhere and she WILL find them!

You have probably never seen anything more adorable than this cat's waddle--she has the back legs of a French bulldog, with that side-to-side wiggle when she trots down the hall. Just try not to laugh too hard, because she really wants you to think she's a princess (although it doesn't help that she answers to the nickname of Sprinkles--a reference to her coloring).

Koto would be a fantastic apartment buddy, as she has zero interest in going outside, and is just fine with sitting on a window perch all day taking in the sights while waiting for her person to come home and hang out with her. She likes a lap to watch TV on, and someone to tell her about their day while rubbing her ears and reassuring her she's never going to be a lost stray again.

PS: A fish tank would be a big plus....

We love our Millie. She makes us laugh everyday! We are so thankful to have her in our lives. We have noticed that she might be part kangaroo by the way she literally bounces off the walls and jumps to turn around to go the opposite way. She's a real joy! Thanks for your part in bringing us together!

AMICUS AKA MURPHY
Hello,

I'm doing pretty good here. Meals come on schedule, toys are provided and the foster mom is nice to me. I am the shyest in the trio but I am figuring things out. Yes...I use my litterbox. I am a smart little guy. I will need someone that can spend time with me and a sister would be lovely too.

Love,
Amicus



Notes from Home
Murphy is doing great and adjusting well into our family. He is super well behaved...our only behavioral issue is teaching him not to jump onto the kitchen counters....we'll get there! Otherwise, he's great with the litter box and knows to use the posts to scratch. He loves all sorts of toys...but the plastic springs, fishing pole toys and playing tag with his older sister Maple are probably his favorites!

He continues to have soft stool upon his arrival to purr-adise. He no longer has diarrhea though and his stool sample came back negative so the vet recommended closely monitoring him and checking with her periodically over the phone for now since he continues to eat well and have perfect litter box etiquette. Might just need some more time to get used to his surroundings and keep growing.

Overall, he's super loveable and enjoys sleeping with mom and dad at the foot of the bed. He's like our little shadow in the mornings and doesn't leave our sides until we have gone off to work. Murphy and Maple for the most part get along well...still a few hisses and smacks every now and then but when she initiates the play he couldn't be more excited! We are super lucky and grateful that we got to add little Murphy to our family!

2/14/2017 Update: Murphy continues to do well! He is the sweetest boy and everyone that meets him falls in love...even non-cat lovers like my mom. He gets along with his older sister, Maple, who gives him baths and kisses (on her own terms though...haha). He still loves to jump and play. He ALMOST has the game fetch figured out. He also still likes to jump on counters which we are still working on. It's hard to stay mad at such a cute face. We also bought him an activity board to keep him stimulated...we put his morning crunchies in there to figure out how to get all his food out when we leave for work. Maple likes this time because it gives her peace from his ball of energy personality. He's such a character and we love having him around. I think he's super happy with us here in Virginia. Check out the updated photos.

SAVANNA
So with a bit of coaxing, I'll come out and purr and even lap-sit for a bit, but the littlest noise will send my back to my safe place. I am a sweet and lovable girl who will need someone to give me time to adjust to any new situation. A feline buddy would be nice to have someone to play with as long as they are not bullies.

Notes from Home
Today is Valentine’s Day 2017 and Savanna has been with me for nearly two months. She and Eddison – my older male Siamese – have really bonded. At first he was a bit wary of this young frisky kitten, but she won him over in a hurry. He snuggles with her, plays with her, and truly seems to enjoy her companionship. I have so many great pictures of them snuggling together and I post them all the time on Facebook – I am sure my friends are getting tired of seeing them. I’ve tried to upload some here – but I’m not a technically savvy as I could be…

Savanna is very loving with me too – snuggling and purring and letting me hold her. (Eddison flat out refuses to be picked up, so it’s a real treat to have a kitty to cuddle.) However, she does NOT like visitors. Not one smidgen. If I have company, she hides.

At the advice of Nancy – Savanna’s foster – I waited a month to take her to the vet. At Savanna’s first vet visit she let me, the vet tech and Dr. Handley hold her and admire her so I was under the impression that she was cured. Nope. If someone stops by, she hides. As soon as they leave, she comes out for a cuddle and goes on about her business. I guess she is a one person cat.

Speaking of the vet visit – she was given a clean bill of health!

I am so glad that Savanna came into my life and I thank all of the volunteers who made it possible.

PS: I FIGURED OUT THE PICTURE UPLOAD! NEW PHOTOS HAVE BEEN ADDED. :)

BELLA
I love being at the Italian B&B for wayward Meezers! I'm growing, and have lots of energy. Big sister Dee Dee, one of the resident meezers, is trying to teach me my manners. I love to play with my toys, and was really interested when big brother Charlie caught a mouse and left it for Poppa Peter in front of his chair. Now that I'm out of the playpen, I'm going mousing with him. Had my spay.

I love to be held, and sleep with you, and will tell you how much I like it by purring, purring, purring. i'm very inquisitive - I've explored the dirty dishes in the dishwasher, and went looking for more ice cream behind the freezer drawer at the bottom of the refrigerator So if you've got a young boy kitty - I prefer a mellow, not too big, playful guy- then I'm your girl.

Notes from Home
Good Morning,

Kiana (Bella) has fully adjusted and become part of the household. She eats like an animal twice her size and continues to grow. During her recent vet checkup she weighed in at 7.3 lbs. That means she is nearly as heavy as the boys now and is enjoying trying to assert herself a Queen. She has mastered the counter jump and so we are having to 1) hide the butter and 2) anything else that is heavy enough for her to paw off and crash to the floor. Beyond the occasional mishap, she is learning that pushing things off the counter is not acceptable behaviour. Her favourite toy seems to me the dog's little tennis ball which she chases through the house.

Her shaking seems to be subsiding some, there are days when it is not evident at all. Not sure if I just don't notice it or it has really diminished over time.

Attaching some photos of the her at rest and attacking the cat tree stump where her perch was.....it fell off yesterday and she was not too pleased. Hopefully will have it repaired on the weekend.


2/14/2017

Happy St. Valentine's Day. Today seems like an appropriate day to give a final update on Kiana. She definitely has established herself as Queen. While she pays with Lynx, it turns out her Bestie is the puppy, Jessie. The two of them were recently caught playing tug of war with a roll of toilet paper. Kiana also is more than accommodating knocking over the garbage can or sliding the butter dish off the counter so the two of them can share a scavenged meal (its more fun eating ill gotten gains together). She has missed the kitchen garbage and instead of knocking it over landed inside of it when it was full of old spaghetti sauce (Note to self: Kiana does NOT like bathing).

She is still shy when people drop in to visit and hides under my bed, so I imagine that will be an integral part of her personality.

Thank-you for giving us the opportunity to enjoy her antics.

PS. I recently re-established a painting studio (decorative art), and am enjoying the rhythm and relaxation the creative process brings. If the rescue needs a few pieces for an auction or craft sale, please let me know. Happy to share photo to establish quality.

BUM
Me and my "brother" were found originally just walking down the road. Came into rescue - and now we're back. We're a marvelous pair of cats - handsome, friendly, and outgoing. We're in kind of rough shape right now, but we've had a vet exam, full bloodwork done, and there is nothing wrong with us that some good food and TLC won't take care of. We would be the perfect pair for someone looking for a ready-made family. Might that be you? We're only marked as 'no kids' because I tend to dart out the door - but in the right circumstances we can talk about that. You don't get a nicer pair than us!

26 May 2016
Poor Bum. After researching greasy cat tails, we discovered, and the vet has confirmed, that Bum has "stud tail." He has been really good about having his butt and tail washed a couple of times a week. Since Bum is neutered, this condition will be life-long and he'll have to have medicated shampoo butt/tail baths once or twice a week then possibly less frequently as the condition gets under control. Thankfully he does not show any signs of infection. Also Bum's urine was recently sent to the vet for evaluation because of the strong smell present, even though his retained testicle has been removed. We're awaiting results of the test.
Bum has decided, today-for the first time, to lay on my lap - not just sit by my side, but physically place himself on me-what a nice surprise for me! Bum is so even tempered, not aggressive at all and merely walks away if there is "an issue". Although his caterwauling at night can be difficult to adjust to, he is a wonderful kitty who will be celebrating his birthday on July 4th! Thank you again Siamese Rescue for working with us to get such a wonderful new member of our family.

27 OCTOBER 2016
Bum's stud tail has been difficult to treat. We just received some new soap today, hopefully it will work better than blue dawn and vet shampoo.
Bum continues to have serious behavior problems. He has taken to "attacking" the other cats by jumping on them and pressing their bodies downward. He becomes particularly aggressive when he is unable to go outside. (It's 31 degrees and snowing today.) We try to engage him in other activities (catnip, petting, etc) but with only limited success. Bum sometimes is placed in his "safe room" effectively for a "time-out". Bum is a very needy kitty and we spend a lot of time trying to make him happy. We will be traveling next month to Florida so Bum will be able to go for more walks which should improve his behavior.
At night Bum continues to be disruptive. He yowls, annoys the other cats and basically makes it impossible for us to sleep. We have found a solution that seems to work well. We let Bum have full access to the entire house until his behavior becomes an issue, we then place him in his safe room for the night (with food, water, a litter box and sometimes a box with fresh catnip. He calms down and usually spends 6-7 hours in the room without issue.
Bum is unable to change his behavior. The vet who did not properly neuter him when he was a baby did a grave disservice and, as far as we are concerned, spoiled Bum's chances of ever feeling at peace - instead he is almost always unsettled and doesn't understand how other kitties can relax but he cannot.
We love our Bum and will continue to make his life as good as possible.

31 Oct 2016.
vet visit today - after observing current pacing behavior and learning of other challenging behavior vet offered possible - diagnosis - Bum was never neutered - possible double cryptorchidism (neither testicle descended). She only located one undescended testicle during the exploratory she did on him about a year ago - his behavior did not change and his urine continued to smell exceedingly strong - blood work tomorrow, if testosterone levels come back high second exploratory recommended to search for and remove second testicle which was not observed/removed during first exploratory- this could also explain the stud tail issue second testicle - which could be smaller than the one removed - could be signaling his sebaceous gland to produce excess fluid- if blood work results show testosterone level low he will be treated for behavioral issues
His behavior has become exceedingly aggressive towards the other cats and can no longer be tolerated.In particular our 19 1/2 year old female is too fragile to have this 12 pound boy attempting to mate with her.
Will keep you posted regarding his blood work results, etc.
Karen, thank you for looking into this for us. Again, I want to mention that we have zero interest in having Bum leave our family. We expect to work through this problem and resolve it once and for all.

8 Nov 2016
Bad news for Bum. His blood work came back and his testosterone levels reveal that he continues to be the equivalent of a fully intact male cat. His diagnosis - he is a double cryptorchid. He was never neutered. He is scheduled for exploratory surgery to look for and remove the second testicle on November 29th. During Bum's previous surgery the vet said she checked him and did not find any other abnormalities, She said that a second testicle must be present and has taken over functionality of the larger testicle that was removed. There is a possibility that the second testicle has grown larger from the suspected microscopic size that it probably was when the previous surgery was done. Please pray that Bum's surgery goes well and that he will be a more contented boy following his successful surgery.
A big thank you to Siamese Rescue for your continued support.

10 Nov 2016
After a plea to the vet she agreed to move Bum's surgery date up. He went in for a second exploratory this morning. There is good news, bad news and really good news. The vet discovered Bum's second testicle which had, at some point, migrated and was located behind his spleen. Apparently this is an unusual spot for a testicle to be located. The vet was able to remove this testicle. The bad news is that the testicle was cancerous; however the really good news is that the testicle appears to have been entirely encapsulated and, after checking Bum's lymph nodes, the vet stated that she is quite sure that the cancer was contained and has not spread anywhere else. She also ran a complete blood panel on Bum and did not discover any abnormalities. The vet is confident that she removed the entire encapsulated cancerous testicle and anticipates that Bum will make a full recovery.
It is expected to take approximately 3 weeks before Bum's testosterone levels will be that of a neutered male. At that time Bum's behavior should change significantly and the desire to mate, spraying when he potties and other "Tom Cat" behavior should be significantly diminished.
The vet has cautioned us that Bum's appetite may remain strong and that he may go from being all sleek and muscular to softening up some and that we need to be aware that he may gain weight. We will have to reduce the number of times he's fed each day and take care to not let him get overweight.
Bum is spending the night in the hospital, is on pain medication and antibiotics. The vet has recommended that Bum be confined for several days upon returning home (to limit his activity and prevent him from hurting himself). Bum has a very large incision which will take quite a while to heal.
We have decided to postpone our trip to FL (all 4 kitties travel with us) for a couple of weeks to give Bum some time to heal and to have our vet see him for a post-surgical check-up in a couple of weeks.
Thankfully, we have finally got a definitive reason for Bum's Tom Cat behavior issues. I do wish that I had Bum's blood work rechecked after his first surgery to confirm that his testosterone levels had diminished. Bum's behavior towards our other cats would not have gotten to the aggressive level that it did.
Bum is not an aggressive kitty. He does not bite and walks around (not over, nor on) the other kitties, so his recent abnormally aggressive behavior did not make sense. I do wish that he could have told us what was wrong, but alas he can't 'human' speak - he just talks Siamese. He is polite and thanks you whenever you open a door for him and feed him. He really is a wonderful cat that had an unresolved medical issue that took a long time to resolve.
We anticipate our household to revert back to the relatively quiet, laid-back atmosphere that it was in the past.
Please pray for Bum to make a quick and full recovery.

13 Nov 2016
Bum is recovering nicely from his surgery. He is licking the wound site. I will be contacting the vet, just to have a quick check-up and get assurance that all is well. He takes his antibiotic like the good boy that he is (with 2 humans to administer the medicine - of course)!
Bum's behavior is expected to change after about 3 weeks, meanwhile he has to be removed from attempting to mate with poor Shadow, who really doesn't understand what's up with Bum. Bum is also demanding to go out for his walks several times a day-regardless of weather conditions and he continues to eat and drink well. His spraying stream has diminished some, however presently he continues to stand when urinating. (He's no 'sissy' squatter, he continues to be a 'real' man.) His pacing continues and his 'dialogue' at night remains unchanged. Please pray that the testosterone levels decrease soon so he can feel less confined and frustrated.
We are actually glad to see that Bum is active and does not appear to be in pain. We have noted one BIG behavior change. Bum has been taking a couple of long naps each day. This behavior is abnormal for him but we think it's a positive thing because his body has been through a traumatic surgery. We think he needs the rest to help him heal.
Bum's scheduled follow-up vet appointment is November 21st. If his healing is going well we will be leaving to head for FL on November 22nd. All 4 cats traveled with us last year and handled the road trips like well seasoned travelers. We anticipate that they will do well this year too.
I'll continue to keep you updated about Bum's progress.
As an aside, Bum's bonded brother Boyd has been staying in close proximity to Bum, even sharing space on the same window bench (although they stay somewhat close to each other, at this time their bond is quite evident). Thankfully Boyd handled Bum being away overnight without complaint.
And finally, I just want to mention that Bum seems to have learned that he is not to 'bother' Amigo (our 19.5 year old female) under any circumstances. This is a huge relief to us because she is so frail. Apparently the water squirt bottle (before Bum's surgery) was effective enough to dissuade Bum from bothering his sister.
All-in-all we hope Bum will continue to heal and we are quite hopeful that his disruptive behavior will diminish to the point that he calms down and doesn't feel the overwhelming need to mate, etc.
Again, a BIG thank you to Karen and Jackie from Siamese Rescue who have extended their support during this stressful time.
Regards,
Bum's Mom and Dad (aka Liz & AL)

15 Nov 2016
Sunday night Bum was awake all night, meowing and pacing, the area around his incision was red. We contacted the vet Monday morning and dropped Bum off. His incision is healing well-no infection, but he was given a stronger pain medication and spent the night at the vet's. Today we were given the choice of leaving him at the vet's for another day or bringing him home. Initially I said that he should stay there; by noon we decided he would be happier at home, so we picked him up. He does seem a little less alert than usual (probably the pain medication) but his Tom Cat instincts remain in place. Within 2 hours of being home he was annoying Shadow and had nosed Amigo while she was in her bed. We threatened him with the squirt bottle and he stopped bothering his siblings.
Bum was able to smell the butter that was on the counter top and jumped up there to investigate. We put the butter away and told him that he knew better than getting on the counter. Apparently he was hungry. Once we fed him he behaved then took a long nap.
The vet said that his urine smell is significantly less strong now and in a few weeks the "Tom Cat" smell will be gone.
We love Bum and want him to be happy. It will seem strange to see him develop different mannerisms, but we think, in the long run, he will be content and healthy. His siblings will be extremely happy to not have Bum stand over them and make mating noises, since none of them are interested in mating.
Bum's post surgical appointment is November 22nd. We expect he will be given the green light to travel. I will update you after that visit.
Again, thank you for your kind words of support.

19 Dec 2016
We have reached a particularly rough patch with Bum and are diligently working to overcome it. Last week Bum was adamant that he either wanted to go outside or have fresh food put down for him. We were not in the kitchen when a particularly bad altercation took place between Bum and Boyd (Bum's bonded brother who came to live with us at the same time as Boyd). There was significant snarling that took place and upon our almost immediate arrival we discovered Boyd frozen in place, laying on his side on the floor evacuating his bladder. He was not moving.
This was a very scary time for all of us and we understood that Bum is having a very hard losing his testosterone since his second testicle was removed.
We immediately rushed Boyd to the vet, an x-ray was completed along with a physical exam. It was determined that Boyd had some sort of internal damage and the x-ray came back negative.
Boyd is the most laid back kitty we have ever been around. We know that it was Bum's frustration in not immediately getting his own way that was cause of this altercation. It was heartbreaking to see Boyd injured and dragging his hindquarters to escape the area that the attack took place. After an physical exam by the vet it was determined that Boyd had suffered some type of internal injury which did not show up on the x-ray. His abdomen is highly sensitive to being touched.No skin breaking bite marks were evident (no blood).
It was determined that Boyd was dehydrated and two subcutaneous dextrose infusions were administered and blood work was scheduled for today Monday 12/19. The results are expected to be returned tomorrow. While Bum did not cause all the possible medical issues; he certainly caused Boyd to suffer significant pain, for which Boyd required 3 days of pain medication. The pain medication (onsior) proved to be too strong and cause several adverse side effects including vomiting and spasmodic contractions of Boyd's sphincter muscle. The uncontrolled contractions, of course, caused some discharge which Boyd was unable to control. Boyd is such a wonderful, thoughtful kitty that he actually vomits in the letter box.
Bum, meanwhile continued to try to intimidate our 15 year old Shadow, although he did leave our 19.75 female along. Tonight Bum is continuing to keep after Shadow, so we are forced to crate him for a few hours. I shutter to think about Bum's complaints that surly will be voiced while kenneled.
A call to our vet in Tupper Lake (who performed Bum's two surgeries and is familiar with his behavior) prescribed calming medicine for Bum while he transition from being an intact male cat to a neutered one was prescribed. Bum now receives two 2.5 mg of buspirone (aka buspar) daily. He is not particularly easy to administer meds to and, thanks to Siamese Rescue's Karen S's recommendation, we have devised a liquid 'shot' of tuna juice, mixed with Bum's medication is the best way to get the med into his system. After some initial trial and error, we now have the med administration down to a science. A huge thank you to Karen S. for standing by and offering valuable help.
Bum does continue to bother the other two boy kitties and we are addressing that issue, if need be we will crate Bum for a few nighttime hours to protect the other cats.
We do not plan on giving up on Bum. We are working with him to meet his needs and are hopeful that the calming medicine will take full effect within a couple of weeks; meanwhile the water squirt bottle is always at the ready and either Al or I are sleeping lightly (in my case not much at all, so we can address any nighttime issues). I will also post this same update to Boyd's record along with some special comments which apply solely to Boyd.
We will send another update in a few weeks to tell you how Bum is doing.

Bum went to a new vet here in Florida today. I was fortunate this morning and collected a urine sample. Bum had an exam and blood work completed at the new vet. Upon getting a whiff of Bum's urine the vet says he smells like a fully intact male cat. His blood work will be back in 5 - 6 days and his testosterone level is being checked. His behavior has not improved, but we strongly suspect that Bum's issue really is physical in nature (not behavioral). He is just acting like an unneutered boy kitty (even tho both testicles have been removed). Once the vet receives Bum's blood work results we will meet to discuss possible options. Unfortunately it is very difficult to do an exploratory and 'discover' additional testicular material so that may not be an option. However, there is a specialist that will be consulted and Bum's NY vet and FL vet will discuss possible options and make a recommendation. Poor Bum, he keeps getting poked and prodded and he doesn't understand why. He also doesn't understand why he feels 'weird' and sure would like to be able to relax like the other kitties do.

Foster Notes

SAWYER
Hey adopters - Sawyer here!

Can you believe that I got lost outside for over a month and that my owners never even looked for me??? Me either!

Can you believe this happened during the winter, when it was soooo cold outside??? Me either!

And can you believe (and this is the worst part) that it happened during FOOTBALL SEASON???? Me either!!!

Thank goodness foster mom got me inside and warm - it was getting really cold out there.

And thank goodness I got inside in time for the playoffs! Can you imagine missing the Playoffs???

As you can see, I am warm and comfy now and all ready to watch the Super Bowl - how about you?

Do you need a couch companion to cheer with you? I am almost ready to go home and can be sitting next to you on your couch in time for the game:)

But you better hurry up and ask about me soon!

Are You Ready??? Here We Go......

Notes from Home
Sawyer became a Jersey Boy on February 12. He is now known as Sepp (german diminitive for Joseph). There are not enough adjectives to describe this wonderful boy. He is a sweet and loving lap cat, who tries so hard to please his meezer sister Nina, dispite her occasional HISS. I would have never imagined how fast he would assimilate into our household. It's like he was always here. He loves everyone who comes in the front door. He will even say hello to the UPS man:) A better politician then most. He lets me know where he is at all times. A very vocal boy! At the present he is on my lap in the computer room as I type. Your probably saying to yourself, is he perfect? No! But almost:) Sepp likes to beg when we sit down to dinner. So now Sepp has his dinner when we sit down to eat. Oh! he must have been a circus acrobat in his former life. Or maybe, a mountain climber! His visit to the Vet went very well, and everyone there loves him. Sepp is a healthy Meezer!

I want to thank Christine for her great foster care. Her care and love were paramount in the way Sepp has adjusted. Thank you so much!

EVA
I am a gentle soul who purrs when petted and brushed. My world has been turned upside down, and I am working on being ready for the next phase. I am a bit confused about what happened to me - one day I am in my home, the next day I am in a strange place - change is scary! Patience, love and understanding are going to be key to helping me adjust to a new life.

With foster Mom's help, I am starting to regroup. With patience, I will be the meezer of your dreams.

Eva is doing very well! She has a set routine and has no problem letting me know when she is in need of attention or food. We have our routines in the AM and PM and loves spending time with me; especially laying on me. I am starting to really realize how strong and active she is as well. She loves running around my apartment and has really come into her own. We are still working on getting used to other people other than myself and not being spooked by my neighbors, but otherwise things are great!!

July 12, 2014
Eva has really found herself now. She lets me know when she wants to play and has no problem climbing on me to let me know. She kneads all the time and drools when she really happy. I am so pleased with the progress she has made and I am looking forward to having my friends and family enjoy her as I do. She still is very shy to new people. However, she is courageous when a friend/family member has been over for a length of time and will make an appearance but runs away quickly when there are any subtle movements.

February, 2017
Eva and I have settled into our home in Virginia. She loves sitting in the bay window, basking in the sun. She loves going on road trips in CT with me to visit my parents and enjoys the summers there! She is still active as ever but does enjoy a quiet day with me as well.

TULIP
Hi! I'm Tulip. Meom says I'm as beautiful as a spring tulip too!
I was really scared before coming here to my foster meom. I didn't know whether I would ever have a safe, comfy home ever again. But my Tia kept me company as we wander for a day. Some nice neighbor brought us back inside.
Then we went to a shelter! Whoa! I didn't like it at all. Then we went to the vet! I didn't like that either. Then our new foster meom came to get us out of there. So it took me a little while to settle in here but everything is wonderful now.
She feeds me and talks to me sweetly! Now I feel better, safer.
Maybe you can be my furever person though. Meom says I will be loved by a very devoted peoples next and never be left to fend for myself again.

It took a few days for Tulip to warm up to me. She was mad at me for taking her away from her foster mommy. She is now my buddy and will snuggle with me.
Tulip has meet her brothers, Rockport and Lionel. She is ignoring them but everything is fine. Rockport really loves her and likes to be with her. They kind of hang out together. Lionel ignores her and stays away from her for now. I am so glad I got to adopt Tulip. I love her. I want to thank everyone who helped to make this happen!

Tulip is such a joy. She has taken over the roll as Lady of the House, she did have big paws to fill! Rockport and her are getting use to each other. They always eat together and sometimes even sleep on my bed together. Occasional growling and hissing, but less and less. Lionel and Tulip totally ignore each other. Lionel stays on the first floor and Tulip likes to stay on the second floor where her domain is. She loves to cuddle and be kissed. Tulip likes to knead on my neck but it does not fell too good. I have to bear with it so I don't hurt her feelings. I love her so much!
2/11/17 I am so lucky I was the one who got to adopt Tulip. She is such a character. She rules the boys and lets them know when she is not satisfied with them. She met Precious, my husband's 22 year old female Blue Point. They like each other. I had Tulip to the vets for blood work 2 months ago and everything came back normal. She is still very active, uses the cat tree, and loves her cat nip bags. She still kneads on my neck, still does not feel too good..but I am getting use to it. Her deep meezer meow is awesome. We love her! Thank you all...Apryl & Chris
