Chupka here. My unusual name means Little Girl or Little Princess. I so want to be someone's Little Princess again only I'm not so little any more. I'm very chubby so I need someone to help me lose some weight so that I feel better.

Second unusual thing about me is that I only have a short, stubby little tail. I lost it in an accident as a kitten but Foster Mom doesn't know what happened and I'm not telling.

My last claim to fame is that I know I'm the World's Best Lap Potato!! Yep - if you've got a lap, I need to be on it. I'll stay just as long as you let me and will happily make biscuits that won't hurt at all because I don't have any front claws. I sometimes have some trouble climbing up on to your lap (that stupid weight thing) but I'll paw at your knees until you help me up.

We'll make a deal - you keep me on my diet and I'll guard your lap from all other furry interlopers.
Foster Mom will work on getting better pictures. I was on her lap (of course!) and she was trying to juggle the iPad and I was headbutting her trying to get more scratches.

Here is Tatiana, nearly a year after her adoption. She is supervising John' who is smoking salmon! Tatiana needs to be everywhere we go. She gardens with us, sits on the patio with us, and goes inside whenever we do. Our yard is compltely fence in, and as we keep chickens, we are vigilant about patrolling the perimeter. Tatiana usually accompanies us on that task as well!
She still wears her harness when traveling in the car. We had a wonderful trip to Ocean City MD together, though she was seasick on the ferryduring very rough seas. Tatiana sleeps with us and sits on the couch with us, but refuses laps, except for John's on occasion. She is a Daddy's Girl & loves to rub on his whiskers before he shaves! As time has passed, we find that she bites less often.
As you can see, her weight has improved and she is looking healthy!
Tatianna VA9444 crossed the Rainbow Bridge today. John and I were able to hold her as she passed. She did not eat breakfast, which is not like her. Ocean County Animal Hospital checked her and discovered that she had developed cancer since her last check-up and was in complete organ failure.
We are in shock over the suddenness of her passing, but grateful that we had a chance to teach her to love again before her body gave out. She had lots of love to give once she felt safe!
Sincerely, RobinJo Norris-McGrath and John McGrath

I am all grown up even though I weigh less then 4 lbs. I fooled foster mom into thinking I was a kitten because I am so small!! I am very loving and sweet and purr my head off whenever you touch me. I am missing my right eye - I am not telling anyone what happened to it but I can see just fine out of my left eye. Oh, and I just love to play - wand toys are so much fun! And I just have a blast trying to get that ball out of the track as it goes round and round!

Belinda had surgery to close the lids of the missing eye, because she was bleeding from it. It turns out that there were parts of the eye still inside that caused the bleeding. The vet has told us that her good eye -- the lids need surgery because they turn in causing the cornea to become irritated. While we were there he put drops in her eye to numb it, and amazingly she opened that eye up fully for the first time. Hopefully the future surgery on that eye lid will help her to stop squinting in the good eye. She's in good health otherwise, and is playful and cuddly.

Her eye surgery was a success and she has no more discharge or irritation in her good eye. She's a great cat, and enjoys lap sitting. She's so small, though she sits on one leg! And she keeps Casper in his place! She's the boss.

Foster Notes

I am a very special cat. I was taken to the shelter by my owner. The shelter knew I couldn't stay with my eye like that. Well here I am. and I got rid of that nasty eye. I still have one good one and I will be fine with that. I came home from the vet and said I am hungry and then I cried until I got that food. They always say not to feed too much after surgery but I was not having that. I am handsome and I will let you know how I am healing

I wanted to drop a note and let everyone know that The Honorable Chairman Meow, Attorney at Paw, Licensed Feline Super Villain (hahaha, that really is his full name) is getting along splendidly. He's adjusted beautifully to his new home and I already can't imagine not having him as my little four legged, one eyed friend. When I am home he is my constant companion (truly - even when I take a bath he's there, sitting right on the edge of the tub, playing in the water)

He plays hard all day and then snuggles up in bed with me at night. He's just a bit bitey when he gets excited, but we're working on that! He has so much energy but has been such a welcome addition to my life that I am thinking about beginning the process of finding another male Siamese to bring home to complete out little family and so that the Chairman will have company while I'm at work and a buddy to play with.

I want to thank each and every one of you that helped in the process of bringing the Chairman and I together. I love him so, so much. He's really made my life all the richer for being in it.

I have just arrived and am investigating everything. Meowmy said I need my "education" before I can go home and it will be a few days before I can meet the other resident kitties too.

Foster Notes

This is my "cute sleeping kitten" pose. Usually I'm a pretty busy guy, as there are toys to play with, other cats to hang out with, food to eat, and of course I have to pest foster mom. I like when she holds me, and really do expect to be cuddled. And how could you resist? I'm just so darn cure. I get along with all the other cats here, but no mean or aggressive cats please as I'm a mild-mannered little guy. Need a cute little red head to join your family? Then ask about me!

Connor is doing great! He is a very playful 8 year old! He and his brother, Tamba, enjoy racing around the house together and keeping active. Connor is always ready to play and will "take over" when a game is started! He did well at his 8 year old check up at the vet and they now call him a "senior" even though he doesn't act like one! He had a good check up and everything is fine with him except sometimes he seems to "wet" when he is sleeping. It is very watery urine so we are getting a urinalysis done at the vet. I just need to get the sample with the special litter that they gave us to use. Please feel free to contact me if anyone has ever heard of this "wetting" small amounts of urine when sleeping. I've never heard of it before and am concerned it may be something serious even though it is infrequent and not consistent. I have tried changing his diet a bit and at this point it seems to be helping. Also, Connor is acting his usual, playful, curious, loveable self! Thanks again for everything!

Connor continues to do well! It's hard to believe we have had him for 9 years! He still is very playful and active retrieving his toys when he wants to play (every evening!) He and Tamba are
both 9 years old and the vet reports that they should have "senior blood work". I think we will do this as Connor has had some skin allergy problems at certain times of the year and some occasional incontinence when he sleeps. I would like to hear what others recommend as well!
Thank you again for everything! This experience has been really great for our family!

Hi, guys! I just got to this new place, and I love that I get to snuggle and be petted and to play with toys. When you pick me up, I purr and I'll even give you a hug around the neck sometimes. I really think that things may be looking up for me! I walked right into this foster home and made myself comfy! I like other cats, I think the dog is fine, and I'm already sleeping part of the night with foster mom. I also love laps! I like to follow foster mom around the house. She says to tell you that I have a bit of a hitch in my gait -- my back legs do great but they aren't always in sync with my fronts. She'll tell you more when you ask about me. It doesn't bother me at all. I run like crazy around the house and jump and do stairs and my litterboxing is superb. I'm working on getting over an eye infection with some medicine. I'm quite the loverboy, and I'll soon be ready to go home!

Nov 1-Hi this is my first month anniversary and I am a shining star!
I am so polite and respectful of my new sister Layla that she lets me sleep on the bed and even share Meowm's lap.
I get to race around and play with my wand toy and even try out jingle ball soccer. This weekend I even get a new brother.
There is a baby sister but she was "feral" so for now she is downstairs until she is brave enough to explore upstairs. We go down and say hi. Oh and my new name is Finnegin but I go by Finn. My foster meowm started calling me Finn and we all like it so well it stuck. And Meowm says its really Finnegin Beginagin but too much of a mouthful when I jump on the kitchen counter.
I am soooooooo thankful for all the Meezer People who helped me start a new life.
Ciao meow for now.

June 2: Well here I am in my furever home for 2 weeks and am being treated like a Princess. I came out of my crate tail high, looked around, used my new scratcher, drank some bottled water, ate a plateful of food. I investigated every corner and cranny of my new room. I cannot go out into the rest of the place because there is a Sam out there and we have to take our time getting acquainted.

My ears got a bit inflamed again probably from the stress of that long ride in a car. I was sort of okay with the trip. Meowmy went right away to get some stuff for my ears. I was not too fond of having it put in but since I know she is helping me i settled down and even purr on her lap while she does it to let her know I understand. My ears feel way better now since two weeks. I don't even notice the stuff going in.

I saw a new vet too and she says I am great and is impressed that Rescue did my dental. I was good for the new vet and all the techs had to come meet me. They think I am purrty. I think I am too.

I love my toys and Meowmy is amazed at how playful I am. She has had a lot of kitties in her lifetime but she says I have an inner kitten even though I am three years old! My Foster Meowm Christine and grand Meowm sent toys home with me and every day I go in the basket and choose a favorite to play with.

I love my kitty cube. Rock and roll! and spend the rest of my hanging out time on the cat tree Meowm made. The view from the second floor window is great.

I have had a few chances to explore the second floor because the Sam was downstairs.
the Sam and I have sniffed noses through the crack a few times. Sometimes the Sam hisses at me and sometimes not.

I have to confess that one day I did my business outside the pan. Meowm finally saw why. I was having a bit of a hard time and
as I turned around some went over the edge. Now I have some pumpkin in my food to help me go easier and all is well.
I am fastidious in my habits. So many changes and you might have a tiny bit of trouble going too!

Meowm is well trained as I said. Each morning she brings my breakfast and cleans my facilities and we have a massage and brushing. We chat and I play with my favorite Red Spikey Ball. At night I get my ear medicine and eat right after. I get venison and other yummies, my favorites, just in case my ears are from grain allergy.

Then after she cleans, we play with the Dangler. And I rock and roll and pounce through my kitty cube.
Sometimes I get an evening massage and brush too!

But whenever I want I go pick a toy from my basket and play Rug Soccer and Wall Pong.
One of Meowm's friends came and met me. I rubbed all over her and twirled.
I like beans.

Now that I am getting used to being here and my ears feel better and all these adjustment details are happening, I feel even more playful and confident than ever!

Today I got to go out in the rest of this place. The Sam was taking a nap in another room by himself. Gave me a chance to runnnnn! and of course track the chipmunks, squirrel and birds out the back slider. But first I checked everything several times.
A girl can't be too thorough you know.

After a few hours I went back in my own room. Meowm says not long and me and the Sam will be together in the whole place.
I am okay with that. I don't mind the Sam but he has to get used to me more.

Meowm took three months to choose me. Karen helped a lot and so did foster Meowm---
and we all think I am the purrfect match here.
I think I am the cat's meow.

More soon!
June 4 Today Layla and Sam were out together for the first time after two weeks of sniffing noses in the cracks.
It was cautious and some hissing and a poofy tail but no aggression or posturing.

Eventually Layla settled in the front windowsill while Sam played with a dangly toy.
They each allowed me to approach and pet them. No tension there.

Today was proof that the cautious progressive approach to integration works!

Sam has a cranky streak which showed up some years ago with some humans and it took a long time to find the keys to
tame it.
So I was being very conservative about integration and keeping my Interviewer and Foster involved like is recommended.

Layla has the ideal purrsonality for coming into my home. Taking three months of careful inquiry and lots of bypassing was worth it--even though a bit emotional at times.
This has been so very helpful and downright important. And I have decades with cats but teamwork has been such an essential ingredient of the whole process.

I decided to end this first meeting on a happy note...after they came within inches sniffing the air between them while I petted and praised both with a happy voice.
More tomorrow! But I could not have asked for a more encouraging first meeting.
Diane, Sam and Layla

June 19th
One month anniversary! So much has changed. Layla has full run of the house and she and Sam have worked it out.
The only restriction I still make is she has to sleep in her Millie bed in her room at night. Sam is used to sleeping on my bed since my Geezer Meezer died. She was the dominant pussy and did not share.
Layla is a strong purrsonality and she took over the bed leaving him to sleep on the floor. So I want Layla to share.
It is a bit too soon for that but it is definitely moving in that direction. Layla is a wonderful kitty. She dashes and leaps and plays with her favorite toys throughout the day. The evening routine includes being brushed and a time with her dangling toy.
She has adopted my lap now too when I sit at the laptop. More and more she is looking in my eyes instead of just at me.
we are still working on settling down the ear itchies. It is not yeast or infection right now...just a lot of wax according to the vet so we will patiently persist with management. Once that is clear again then we will work on selectively eliminating possible food allergies. She eats high quality food but sometimes an ingredient is the culprit. We shall see. Layla lets me put the drop in her ear without a fuss so it is really no bother to have this in her nightly routine. And so smart! She opens cupboards but I have no toxic things under there anyway. She learned quickly to let me put Sam's food down first and not go for it herself.
She sits and waits and then goes over to where I feed her a few feet away. right now she is sitting between my arms with her chin resting on my arm as I type.
Did I say happy affectionate wonderful kitty?! have I gushed enough? LOL. I will say again that if you have circumstances to accommodate with an existing cat...it is worth the time and effort to choose just the right one. Your interviewer and fosters are such important resources.
I will get some photos up now.
Diane Sam and Layla

Nov 1, 2016--Layla says "I have been here four years and recently lost my brother Sam. Meowm knows I need friends and action even though I am devoted to her. So she adopted Finn! (Infiniti) It's only a month and we are so good together we even share Meowm's bed. And take turns sleeping on her... Now Meowm says there is even another brother coming named Higgins...She says it will be like the Indy 500 here. I don't know what that means but we sure do like the Mad Dash through the house now and then. Meezer Rescue is the best!"

You know they say don't judge a book by its cover - well, I'm a bit of a mess right now but foster mom says I will be beautiful in a few weeks. I've got red puffy eyes and chin acne and someone chopped off my whiskers. Geez!!!!! My bath has me looking much better already and foster mom says my whiskers will start to grow back so there will be a new look for me with a little time. And a few days of washing my face will help get rid of the kitty acne. The good news is that all of my little problems are little and will soon be gone.
Amazing what two weeks can do for a girl. My whiskers are growing back, my chin acne is almost gone and only a little bit of puffy eyes.

Notes from Home
This may a repeat of my entry on another page, but now everyone involved can read it!

Mango has been given the new name of Peaches! She's doing great! She is out of her safe room, exploring the house up & down. She is interacting well with Vinny (1 yr. old male) & his mom, Cici (3 year old) My other 2, Lily, the 16 yr old, & Sutty, (12 yr old) accept her presence, but not much interaction, but nose touching often.

She is a very nocturnal kitty, romping all over in the wee hours. Last night she came & slept on my chest for a couple of hours, between romps. She likes to sit in my lap for long periods of time, purring away. She loves her wand toys & plays well with Vinny & Cici. She has a funny little ma-ma doll-like yip, rather than a meow or yowl. Too funny.

Her whiskers look like they've grown a tad. She has put on a wee bit of weight I think, because she doesn't feel as bony as when she 1st arrived. She has a little pinkness to her gums at the edges, so she will have annual dental works-ups, & cleanings as necessary. I do add a dental additive in the water, so hopefully that will aid in improving her gums.

Here's a photo of her with Vinny, playing on the bed in her safe room. Enjoy......

10/11/16 am Peaches has had some coughing episodes & difficulty with breathing over the weekend, so I got her to the vet as soon as I could. Temp is normal. She had 3 x-ray views taken of her lungs. No tumors, thankfully, but her vet thinks she my have asthma. The x-rays will be read by a radiologist later today, with results coming back today or tomorrow. No meds given at this time. Once the results of her films are back, her treatment will be planned. If it is asthma, she may be on steroids. Doc says that might help with her excessive rubbing & scratching. I'll keep you all posted.

10/11/16 evening: The diagnoses came back Lower Airway Disease. Bronchial Asthma would be another term. Here's the x-ray reading:

"The cardiac silhouette is normal in size & shape.
Specific cardiac chamber enlargement is not identified.
The pulmonary vasculature is normal in size, with no evidence of cardiac decompensation.
The trachea is normal in size.
There is an increase in the bronchial opacities.
Peribronchial thickening is identified.
Air bronchograms to suggest alveolar lung disease are not present.
There is flattening of the diaphragm caudally & increased distance between the cardiac silhouette & diaphragm suggesting air trapping. The lungs extend beyond the 13th rib further suggesting air trapping.
No mass lesions are identified in the thorax.
Liver volume is increased with margins of the liver extending further caudally than normal.
The spleen & kidneys are normal in size.
heterogenous material consistent with ingesta is present in the stomach. The stomach is mildly distended by the ingesta.
The small bowel is gas & fluid filled, but normal in diameter.
A radio frequency identification chip is seen along the dorsal thoracic wall. (We knew that.)

COMMENTS: Radiographic changes would be consistent with allergic lung disease & could result in the clinical signs. An infectious bronchitis cannot be completely excluded. Treatment for airway disease with antibiotics, bronchdialators, & corticosteroids in varying combination would be indicated. Follow-up x-rays can be used to monitor the response to the treatment. the clinical responses to treatment will determine if a transtracheal wash to obtain material for analysis & culture would be necessary. because of the hepatomegaly, assessment of liver function with cliniccopathological data is recommended."

So there could be some liver issues perhaps. Right now her treatment is Clavamox (antibiotic), for 10 days, along with Prednisone for about a month. She'll be re-evaluated at that time & depending on how she does, she'll either be ok, or have to have a preventative steroid treatment. Poor baby.

She's just been given her 1st dose of meds, & it went well. I'm doing liquids, as I feel pills can be so easily spit out. She ate along side Vinny & enjoyed her after dinner chicken treat.

10/16/16 Peaches has been on her meds for 5 days now, & she is doing great!

11/1/16 Peaches is out & about regularly now. Her chin acne flared up, so the vet gave her some ointment & it seems to be helping. I think her whisker have grown a smidgen, as she isn't rubbing her chin as hard & as often as when she 1st got here. She's a skittish girl & spooks easily. She also likes to tear around the house as if she was set on fire. She continues to sit up on her hind legs & with her 2 front paws together, wave them in the air, begging when she's hungry. I gotta get a picture of it.It's so darn cute. I wonder if she had a dog or 2 as companions in her last home. We'll never know, but I bet she did. She continues to find my lap, while I'm online, & cuddles & purrs to her content, & mine too. Getting along really well with the others. Vinnie tends to mow her over, as he does with the others, & she is learning to tell him to knock it off, LOL. She is a pure joy, 7 I am so grateful & thankful that she found her way to me.

Sam Jones is fine. He's a happy, healthy, playful, rambunctious, sweet rascal. He is my alarm clock. He sits on the nightstand and mews very softly, but persistently every morning. Sometimes a little nip is needed to get my attention. Alas, he is an early riser.
He is still afraid of people, but has become best buds with Ted, who comes to help clean the house. He hides from other people.
He likes to play. I've included pictures of his chair. We play his version of hide and seek....impossible to describe. He also likes to run at me, veering away at the last minute. He's chatty....and often comes to me to visit. He sits in the lavatory while I put makeup on.
His favorite perch is on the hood over the stove. I'm waiting for it to fall down.
Time has gone quickly. Hardly seems Sam has been here 2 years. Many thanks to Siamese Rescue. Hugs and kisses from Sam Jones.

Sam Jones is doing well. He is growing like a weed. He's always hungry and purrs when he eats his food or 13 year old Jasmine's.

He and I have bonded. He's a sweet boy, meets me at the door and follows me around the house. He really responds to "come on, Sam," and runs every where I go. He loves to settle down next to me and snuggle. He watches tv and was especially interested in the recent dog show and in Dancing With The Stars. He's very curious about the kitchen....I have pictures of him in the dishwasher, refrigerator, and upper kitchen cabinets. All this to say, I always check before I start a machine or close a cabinet or closet door.

His coloring is changing. In his pictures, he still looks mostly white except for his tail, nose,and ears. But, his feet and legs are more the pale color of his tail, except for the bit of color around his heels. His pp
Oomask is beginning to have streaks of the dark stripe in his tail. He also has a bit of a pale golden sheen on his back. He's a real

contrast to Jasmine's darker coloring.

Our only problem continues to be with Jasmine. I think Sam would like to make friends, but Jasmine seems to want him to disappear. He comes hear and she hisses and growls and slaps. He responds by chasing her, and trying to tackle her. I put him in his room when he does that. I have tried closing them off from each other, though I have only 2 bedroom doors to close. He still sleeps in his room; his food and box are in his large bathroom. I try to have some time at night with Jassy in my lap and Sam on his pad cuddled up next to me. I also try to play with both with a wand toy. Unfortunately, this is my busiest time of the year and my time is limited.

The original Sam Jones, Methodist pastor and evangelist (d. 1911), was well known for saying "quit your meanness." I have had ample opportunity to say that to my little Sam.

Sam Jones has become part of the family. I think he is really happy. He follows me everywhere I go and has become very loving. He still lives dangerously.......he sits on top of a door and play with a ceiling fan. He has stopped biting me, except for nibbles on my feet when I'm getting his meals ready. He wants to rub noses, purring all the while. He's very possessive of his room and his bathroom. No one can use his bathroom without Sam in attendance.

Alas, he is still aggressive with Jasmine. He chases, jumps on top, and bites. BUT, Jasmine chased him out of the room last night. Yeah, Jasmine! They have begun to sit next to each other, close enough to wash each other. Jasmine even washed him a bit last night. I think we are making great progress. I hope to let Sam sleep in the sun room with Jasmine soon. The original plan was for Jasmine to have a companion and sleeping buddy.

I can tell that Sam Jones has not have some experiences that Jasmine had as a kitten....she slept with the teenage daughter where I got her....even played in the shower with her. But, he is coming along, wanting attention and love.

Many thanks to all the people who helped Sam. I think he is a happy little Georgia cracker. He went to the vet recently...feline acne...and was badly frightened, far more so than when I took him the first time. No cat likes to go to the vet, but Sam was truly pitiful. I am going to get him another carrier......the one he came from VA in really frightened him.

Love and kisses from Sam Jones.

3/10/15. little Sam Jones had luxation repair on both back legs on 2/23/15. The surgeon removed his kneecaps, reshaped them, reshaped the track his kneecaps move in. Recovery time is 12 weeks. His legs were collapsing under him. Without the surgery, Sam would have been crippled and had severe arthritis. Sam is now in his third week of recovery and is doing well. He can walk, though still rather stiffly, and use his big boy litter box. He can get off the sofa, but not back up. At night, he sleeps in the shower stall so I can know where he is. He's been playing this morning and just bit my toe as he walked past. He was really pitiful at first, but he's been a real trooper. He still weighs almost a lb. less that he did before the surgery. But, he eats often and his appetite is increasing. He has had 6 laser treatments that I am sure have helped his recovery. Please keep little Sam in your thoughts and prayers.

Sam is now in his 8th week of recovery. His surgeon says his kneecaps are right where they are supposed to be. He is pleased with Sam's recovery. Sam can run like the wind again, but still can't jump. He seems to tire easily and still sleeps a good bit, but he has longer periods of activity. His fur is growing out and he has almost gained his weight back. He's back to being a pest with his older sister, Jasmine. He's loving with me, deciding suddenly that he is a lap cat. He's impish, hiding behind doors to jump out at me when I come into a room. He's even begun to chatter with me a bit. He is frightened with visitors but curious enough to peep from under the sofa and eventually comes out to share in the petting. (Jasmine is
VERY social.) Sam is becoming a handsome fellow with beautiful streaks of orange color radiating from his nose and eyes that match his ears. His feet are creamy and his striped tail completes his look. He has a golden sheen on his back. He is long and lean. Truly a fine little fellow!

Sam Jones has finally completed his 12 week recovery from the knee surgery on both back legs. He is much improved and can run like the wind and does just that every morning all over the house. He can get in the refrigerator, dishwasher, dryer, washing machine, the cabinets and can jump on the counters of all cabinets. So far, he still can't get on top of the doors. Before his surgery, he could get on top of doors and from one could turn on a ceiling fan. I guess we are lucky he still has his head attached. His legs are still a bit tender, but he's made great progress. he is still not quite as active as before, but he has been a real trooper the whole time with a serious surgery and painful recovery.

He's easily frightened by loud noises and sudden movement; he hides from visitors. He will eventually come out for company, but is distrustful. I even scare him if I move too quickly.

He loves his Millie bed and Fancy Feast. He acts rather silly when I say breakfast and supper time. He lolls on me now that his legs are not so tender. He checks in with me often for a snuggle and likes that kissing stuff. He will also give me the occasional bite. He greets me at the door and seems delighted I am home. He has even begun to meow when he checks in. I'm hoping he will become a talker.

He and Jasmine have their issues still. I have a water bottle at the ready. He bit me about 2 weeks ago......broke the skin...and it is still bruised and painful. But, I am hopeful our issues will eventually go away. I think sam's integration into the household was interrupted by his dramatic surgery. I think we will get there. He can be a really silly and funny guy.

Sam Jones continues to settle in with me and Jasmine. He seems to be completely recovered from his knee surgery. He runs and jumps everywhere. He has a quirky personality. He has a vocabulary of funny little sounds that he uses when he approaches me. He loves wand toys, and best of all, he loves to sit in a rocking chair, get it rocking, and have me flip the wand toy at him as he rocks. He also likes to be pulled on a towel around the house. He still jumps on Jasmine, but he then puts himself into time out by running into his bedroom!! Sometimes, Jasmine jumps on him and he's afraid of her. What a funny little fellow!

I can tell that Sam was abused, though I see him gradually being more confident and certainly comfortable with me. He used to bite but no more. He is less fearful when I move toward him, but I still cant run at him. He still hides from visitors, but eventually comes out for friends, but not for service people. Loud noises frighten him.....July 4 fireworks was a bad experience for him.

He's a big presence in the house. He greets me at the door, he keeps me in view when I'm in the house. If he thinks I'm going to bed, he usually beats me to the bedroom. When I work in the yard, I look up and he is watching from a window. He sits in my lap at some point every day. I think Sam is really content, and I am thankful to everyone who helped him get to me. What a journey my silly Sam has had!

Greetings from Sam Jones! I've been in my forever home for a year now and, as you can see from my new pictures, I'm all grown up and quite handsome. I've recovered completely from my double knee surgery and I can run and jump better than ever. Dr. Pate says my knee caps are right where they are supposed to be. Dr. Fitz feels me all over and says I feel great...I'm all muscle! They both give me little mice for being such a good boy at the vet.

I have chores...I patrol the bathrooms and make sure all towels are in the floor and not on the towel racks; I guard Meowm while she puts on makeup by sitting in the sink; I help Meowm wash things in the kitchen sink by standing between her and the sink whenever she has the water running; I patrol the dishwasher, refrigerator, and all the cabinets. I keep watch on the birds and a rabbit from the sunroom. I go where Meowm goes.... I help put clothes in the washer and dryer, help clean the litter box. I even follow the roomba. I'm just busy, busy, busy!

I love to play. My favorite games are hide and seek....sometimes Meowm hides and I find her, and sometimes I hide and then jump out and scare Meowm. I love my wand toy. Best of all is when I get in the rocking chair and play with that feather while rocking. I also love fetch. Meowm throws my makeup brushes ( I took hers) or all our mice and I run and fetch. When I've had enough, I take my toy and go into the closet.

I love laps and being petted. I love breakfast and supper time...Fancy Feast, yum! Sometimes, I talk to Meowm in a sweet little voice.

I'm really a good boy. I quit biting a long time ago. I'm nice to my sister Jasmine most of the time. Jasmine's scary and jumps on me when I'm not nice. We sleep together now in the big leather chair. Whoever gets in the chair last licks the other cat's head before lying down. I like having a forever home. Thank everyone at Siamese Rescue for helping me find a happy home.
Purrs and kisses from Sam Jones
