Notes from Home
Finn has been home for only 2 weeks but it feels like much longer. He settled in immediately, and has not stopped purring since. He is of course still a weirdo, but I love him for it.
Finn is very much involved in everything, especially cooking. I think he considers himself to be the inspecteur du travail. I now am forced to chose between having Finn hairs in all my food (and several licks missing) or loud meowing if he gets put in the bedroom. One much appreciated distraction is the Slim-Cat ball, which keeps him busy for a few minutes as he furiously rolls around to get kibble out.
His appetite for play is almost as insatiable as his appetite for food. Already he has destroyed two wand toys, gladly tearing the feathers from the wand and running away with his prize. More than once he has decided that the bathmat is his new favorite toy, running off with it mid-shower. He lets me know he is looking to play by frantically running from room to room at full speed. Unfortunately he is not quite coordinated to be doing this and has slammed in to table legs and walls several times.
At night Finn goes from being an sleeping angel to a mad demon in minutes. His favorite nighttime activities are to knock things off of shelves, meow loudly, scratch in his box for upwards for 5 minutes, and to purr loudly right by my ear. The good news is he is always willing to nap during the day.
He has been off of the kitty Prozac, and I would say that is going ok-ish. Finn can be a real cat jerk, but he is the sweetest and most loving cat jerk I have ever met.
Finn has been home for about 6 weeks now and I couldn't be happier. He did end up going back on the Prozac, and somehow has learned he doesn't like being pilled.
Without Prozac he was just a little too hard to handle. On days I got home super late from work (about once a week) he would attack when I walked in the door. Not sure what that was all about, but it isn't happening anymore thankfully. He also would bite me while I was sleeping (not hard, but definitely unsettling). Now that he is on Prozac he is his normal silly self. He gets up right when my alarm goes off, and makes sure I don't press snooze. He loves his food, although he has Halo Stew in his rotation and somehow manages to leave the bowl clean except for all the peas.
I bought Finn a DABIRD toy, and my oh my has he loved it. I keep it in a closet and now he just sits and meows until I get it out. Even worse, whenever I open the closet door he comes running and makes me feel guilty for not playing with him. Tricky little guy. He still loves to carry around his blanket, although this mostly happens at night. He loves to look out the window, and recently I have been training him to be on a harness. We had our first outdoor adventure last weekend.
Finn is my very best friend and I am so happy he came in to my life. He makes me laugh every day, and snuggles all night. I will be traveling for work a bit, so it will be interesting to see how he handles having a cat sitter.
Hard to believe Finn has been home for over 6 months. While he still has been quirky habits (and they change frequently), he is an absolute doll and I love him to bits.
I am traveling quite often, and he is like a puppy every time I get home. He sits and meows at the door and proceeds to purr and head butt as soon as I come inside. I have never had a cat so happy to welcome me home. Finn has mellowed out quite a bit from when I first got him, but he still has the zoomies from time to time and he can get a bit rough in his demands for playtime. He still loves DaBird and his cat nip bananas. He isn't carrying around his blankets anymore, instead he likes to actually sleep on them. While Finn isn't fully a lap cat yet, he does snuggle with me at night and has started sitting closer and closer on the couch.
Overall Finn is doing great.He still has a healthy appetite, but he is no longer constantly searching for food, and he has even been known to leave food in his bowl from time to time. He still darts out the door every time it opens, and he loves to by the window, I think he was probably an outdoor cat at some point in his life.
Finn is very loved and I couldn't be happier with him.
Wow I can't believe a year has passed since we brought home Finn. He is incredibly loved and very much the center of attention at my house. He remains a very healthy boy, although he did have a dental last spring to clear up some funky kitty breath, however he didn't need any extractions. We have kept him on the Prozac, although some days I wonder if he might need a higher dose :)
I have never heard Finn fuss about anything (other than being hungry), and I don't think he has a mean bone in his body. He is the easiest cat to pill and he lets me trim his nails while he naps.
Finn has handled my hectic work schedule like a champ, and he makes coming home the highlight of my day. He stands at the door meowing, and he does not leave my side until he has been fed. His appetite is quite strong to say the least, and we have found his absolute favorite foods. He hasn't gained any weight, although I am sure he would be happy to.
Finn is an incredibly playful cat, and sometimes he mistakes his humans for his playmates. He can get a bit wild, especially at bed time, but that is why we love him so much. We have never been successful in transitioning Finn to a lap cat, although he does like to snuggle at night (but only with Marc). Finn does, however, like to be carried around like a baby (only by meowm).
I am sure Finn is excited for the weather to cool down so we can open his window again. It only took one day with the window open during the summer to learn that Finn is no guard cat and he certainly had no interest in chasing all the critters he let in. I really do wonder how he managed as a stray at 7-11.
We love Finn to bits and I am so grateful for everything that the Siamese Rescue did for him.

I wrote a whole long thing and my ipod ate it before I could finish.
She was amazing in the car. Watched me some, then slept in the carrier's litter box (because it didn't slide). I guess she used all her words talking to Mumbai on the way to DE.
When we got here, I took her out of her carrier and put her in the litter box (so she'd know where it is). In her first two hours here she ate, drank, and peed in the litter box.
Thank you so much, Christine, for all the wonderful stuff!! She loves the crinkle ball and tom and I were playing kitten in the middle with her. She has also had a lot of fun exploring. No inappropriate climbing or scratching ... Yet. ;)
I unpacked her star turbo and she went right to the scratching pad and went to town on it. Good girl! She played with it some, but right now the toy of choice is the crinkle ball.
She shies a little if we try to pet her and is wiggle worm if we pick her up. I figure this is because she doesn't know us yet. Not gonna rush it.
More updates as we see how she fits in. She has stolen our hearts and we love the little girl.
Sunday September 7, 2014
This morning she graced us with a stinky poop. Tom said it woke him lol. Probably because her box is under the window fan so it breezed past me. Though playing with her tonight, her farts can clear the room!
We started the day with a good breakfast of eggs, bacon, and sausage (though to me it looked like canned kitten food). She is eating well and I think she knows she's home.
She loves jumping on the back of the recliner to make it rock. She also uses it as a launch point to pounce onto our beds. She had an early morning game of hop on pop.
I put her fleece mat in the window with a pillow leading to it. Introduced her to the back yard channel. She watched a little of the creek channel yesterday.
Right now she is anxious to start exploring the rest of the house. Since we can close off parts we may let her explore the second floor starting Tuesday.
We can pet her and scoop her up to put her somewhere, like in the window. She is happy to see us when we come in the room and ready for more playtime. We are happy to oblige!
Oh and home opening wins for the Steelers and Eagles!
Monday September 8, 2014
She's decided this is home. Whoever is in the room, that's where she is. I had brought up my laptop and played with her while I reviewed some documents. Guess I wore her out, she napped while I worked after that.
We have to open the door slowly, she's ready to explore. She also likes to hide under the recliner and ankle attack! when we come into the room.
She is still an early riser. When I go back to getting up at 5:30am, she's gonna be pouncing on poor sleeping Tom.
Got my first purr this morning when she was having breakfast. Good volume. She may be a loud purrer when she gets bigger. Right now she doesn't exhibit the 'meezer chatatude, just a peep if she wants our attention.
Thursday October 8, 2014
She's been with us a month now. Had her first vet visit a week after we brought her home, they were very surprised that she'd been "fixed" already. She behaved well and let me cradle her.
Ok, this is a defective meezer. I mean really. Not much of a voice, just a little chirp now and again. Where's the long diatribe to which I'd grown accustomed? And her points! Shameful! Instead of adorable grey stripes on her arms and legs, she looks more like she's wearing while evening gloves and hip waders. What respectable siamese trots about without her gioves and boots????
LOL We love this girl so much. She's getting bigger and really adores both of us (though probably more partial to Tom since he works from home). She now has full run of the house and is a very happy kitten for that. She's taken over the "kitty condo" we have in the den - if she wants to sleep near us and not be disturbed, she crawls in there to sleep. We haven't set up the tree yet, when we do, she'll be in heaven. She still likes to sit on the back of the recliner and has a couple favorite windows. We'll have to put ledges in the windows for the colder months so she can still watch the backyard and creek channels.
She'll watch me hanging laundry and when I call to her, she'll start rubbing the screen (she does that when she sees us through any window and we talk to her). She knows the car sounds, meets me at the door when I get home. Since we have an alarm set-up, the doors go beep-beep-beep when they're opened so she knows when someone is coming or going. The one that surprised us was last week. We normally go in and out the back door. Well, last Thursday it was raining so as we walked home, we decided to just go in the front. She still met us at the door - she was looking through the door before we even opened it!
She has started inappropriate scratching. That just means she needs to be clipped and we need more scratching posts. She does respond to a sharp HISSSSS but I think that will wear off soon enough.
Did I mention yet that we ADORE this little girl? And we are so happy that she loves us too.
November 5, 2014
Two months with our angel. She steels the hearts of everyone who meets her. Tom's brother stayed with us a couple days the end of October. He professes to be "alergic" to cats. We warned him that she'd probably sleep at his feet. She did and he suffered no ill effects. Heh! A couple days ago he called, not to talk to either of us, but to ask how "his girl" was doing.
She really LOVES sitting in the windows. Unfortunately, now that it is getting colder, the windows are closed at night. Poor girl has crashed into them more than once. She'll figure out soon enough how to see when it is closed and when it is open. The hard part with the window shelves is that they expect a sill. We have no sills on our old windows so that makes this a little tricky.
She is also a treasure hunter. She brings Tom all sorts of things she finds, such that we wonder where she is finding them! The pen was easy, she was playing with a pen I'd dropped and I said, "take that to daddy, he needs a pen" and she trotted off with it. The ones that I find particularly bizarre are the two ear spoons she found. No idea where they came from, the only one I knew of was the bamboo one that was not in the collection. We're hoping she can find some early American artifact.
Still not much of a talker. A chirp now and again, especially if we're ignoring her. She does have a good purr and is getting more generous with it. She doesn't play favorites at night, she'll take turns sleeping with either of us or, more likely, will sleep in the chair between our beds. She's responding to Lexi better than Peep (though we still think that's her secret name) and will usually (ahem) come when called.
Oh yes, the honeymoon is over. LOL
Actually, Lexi's a pretty good girl. We can tell she's a "Teenager" because now she talks back at us. "Lexi, don't do that!" "mew mew mew mew" (which, of course, means "you're not the boss of me!" or "You're not my REAL mom/dad") She is crazy for fetching. I've never seen a cat play that so much. We've started keeping a stash of pens nearby so that when she brings an "inappropriate" toy (something that garners a "Where did you find THAT?????") we can toss her a pen instead. I have a video of her with an aluminum take out pan. Today I was installing mini blinds and took out one of the slats. When I went to put it back, it was gone. She had stolen it and taken it upstairs. When she starts steeling my tools, I'm gonna worry.
Don't think she'll ever get a legitimate meezer voice. And it suits her. She uses her words, when she's happy she'll chirp and when she's been scolded she'll mew. Haven't heard the "bird call" yet but the windows are now open since it's gotten warm and they are both trying to find which they like best.
She and Boris are best buds, usually find them in cat pile together. He adores her and sometimes she'll pull a "greta garbo" just to take a break from him. He doesn't do the same, just looks a little frustrated when she's full on excited on him. The only thing Lexi doesn't like to share with him are her people. If he's laying next to Tom, she'll wiggle between them.
Boris' foster called the other day to check up on him (its been 3 months). Tom said they sounded surprised when he told them that he and Lexi were fine together by the second day. Took him longer to warm up to the humans than Lexi.
I'll edit some of the video I took of Lexi - her first foray into the snow (very confused by it) and carrying up the metal pan - and post them. And more pics.
We love our kits!
September 6, 2016
Two years with the girl! Still not a talker, Boris seems to do that for her. She still likes to play with her Turbo and play fetch. Her favorite things to fetch are crochetted snakes and plastic straws. I don't think she'd do a metal pan again. She and Boris are very good about porch time - it's not enclosed or screened in and they understand the rule of not venturing off or porch privileges are taken away. No real desire to go outside otherwise. Which is good because even though we haven't seen the fox, there are still eagles, ospreys, and falcons that might make off with a little Lexi.
She's not so little anymore. She's stockier than most meezers, but that doesn't hinder her leaping ability. In an earlier post I mentioned her "Garboing" (I vant to be ah-lone). Her spot is on top of the china closet in the living room. It's over 6' tall and she seems to have no problem leaping from the back of a chair to the top.
She isn't a cuddle kitty, but she likes to hang with me when I'm working at home. Usually she's just out of easy reach. Though when she does want pets, she lets me know. I'll be in bed and she'll start headbutting me to give her strokes. And if she's really fidgety, she'll jump on me and "pussyfoot" (There's a WB cartoon called "Feed the Kitty" where a big bull dog adopts a tiny kitten. She'll climb on his back and make biscuits, he'll make faces. That's me and Lexi.)

Just arrived, and am busy telling my fostermom all about myself. I am very handsome, and love to chat and be properly admired. I am checking out the new digs and so far so good, however, I would really like to se what is on the other side of that door.
In the meantime, I like to nap cuddled on fostermom's lap or chest, purring all the time.
Did I mention I am movie star handsome?
Update: I am suffering from a bit of a shelter cold, but I still did not let that stop me from sneaking out the door. I realy dont like being by myself. I met the dogs, the admiration they gave me was quite flattering, so I allowed them to sniff me, and even gave them purrs and headbutts.
One must keep the peasants happy, you understand. However, I will not let the admirers stop me from exploring, so I am busily plotting my next escape. I hear there are more christmas trees around I have not helped decorate. Fostermom says it is actually more of a " re" decorate.
Will update more when I get to meet the other kitties here.

Romulus is still the most magnificent animal EVER and doing well. He has still the most loving, fun, and gentle nature and the most unique animal I've known in over 55 years. He now has mild asthma and his treatments keep him comfortable; he is slowing down a bit, but, all his latest labs and exams show him still in great health, including near perfect teeth ( still has them all ) which is so rare for a wedgie...Always a happy, happy boy!
Still love him to pieces, more every day. I always think of Heida and all the wonderful SR folks who brought him to NC from Maryland 8 years ago!
April 27, 2016 update. Romulus is still doing well as a senior citizen now; his asthma bothers him some, but he has constant treatments for it and the vet continues to give him excellent senior exam results every 4 to 6 months. He is my absolute joy; he sleeps in my arms every night and has the most loving and gentle nature; a wedgie boy who is the best example of his type. I have never had a boy I love so much; he's here over 10 years now and I still am grateful to all who helped bring him here. We are so bonded it's amazing; wedgie boys are awesome and he is my best buddy!
September 1, 2016 final update. My magic boy crossed the bridge today. For the last three weeks, his health has been failing and after all possible tests came up with no answers, he began hemorrhaging blood today which my wonderful vet said was no doubt a cancer that had reached his intestinal tract. His decline was rapid, rapid, rapid. At his age, no treatment would stand a chance and that difficult decision had to be made.
He crossed the bridge at 6 p.m. today while I held him and looked into his eyes until he was gone; he was gently purring throughout.
My heart is broken; he was a soul mate beyond any other and so full of love, kindness, and charm. I thank everyone at SCRC for helping him come to my home almost 12 years ago.
No human and cat loved each other more than did he and I.
Rest in peace my Rom Bom boy. I love you, Dad.

Oh these pictures don't do my blue eyes justice, too bad because they are beautiful. If you were to ask about me you will find out that I am playful, easy to get along with, adventurous, full of personality and love being loved. Interested - just ask about me - you won't be sorry.

Jovi now Tucker is the most wonderful boy. The 1st night we had him he bit my husbands big toe through the covers. I laughed so hard. You see my husband never had a cat for a pet his brother is allergic. At 1st Tucker was shy and we were told he would never be a lap cat or cuddler. He now sleeps with my arm around him and get piqued if I don't come to bed on time.And he is always looking for a scratch and a pet. He's a big boy now 16 lbs. at his recent Dr. visit. Do snowshoes run large? His brother Finn is a sealpoint snowshoe and weighs 19 lbs. They are both loveable, and their sister Frost a chocolate point is the petite princess that she is. Our little family are just wonderful and Tuck is a little trickster keeping the others on their toes. 7/19/13 Tucker is the most loving cat he wants under the covers for periods of time at night. He Likes to play with his toys. His Vet thinks he is the most beautiful cat she has ever seen. Tucker is healthy and happy .Our older cats have gone to heaven we miss them dearly. Now we have Tucker and Finn and their poodle mom Sophie Rose. We are a very happy family.

I am a little afraid right now but we will be working on that. It is all new and different.
I finally decided that it is time to make myself seen. I just loved all the attention I got and I think it might be OK here. Temporarily anyway. Today should be picture day now that I want to meet the world.

Temma is doing great at two weeks home with me! I hoped for the best and prepared for the "worst" -- "worst" being she would stay in hiding under the bed for a week or two. That would have been fine; I am a patient person. She surprised me by following me around the first day home and even jumping up on my lap before I tried to pick her up. So it turned out to be the best case scenario, and she is the best! Pretty much immediately, she was a cuddle bug.
She came home with me on September 12th, and her estimated birth date is September 2011. So, her birthday will be celebrated each year on September 12th.
We are a perfect match, and I am grateful to Siamese Cat Rescue Center (SCRC) for that! Honest to goodness, we have similar personalities. The thorough application process was so worth it. Her and my timing seems perfect about when it's a good time to be lovey and when we keep our distance and do our own thing. We always know where the other is, though, when I am home. And it's so awesome... She always comes to greet me when I get home from work or being out for errands. I also love to cook, and she seems to enjoy the smells, curled up on the couch with her nose moving in the air
And, worthy of mention, she is doing great eating the food suggested by SCRC, drinking water, peeing, and pooing.
All my friends and family know one of my favorite things is to be on my screened-in porch. Temma loves it, too. It's a place she can feel the fresh air and take in some different sights, sounds, and smells and be safely contained. Still, I do not let her go out there without me.
One thing that is changing is that she is getting a little more playful. She cracks me up with her little play toys: the mouse, the mouse, the octopus, the mouse, the mouse, the ball, and the mouse. She loves the mice. She also loves the pink play cube, one of the delightful gifts her foster mother Jane sent with her.
She loves to be brushed, and with her beautiful soft coat, that is a good thing. She likes me to brush her first thing in the morning. The challenge is brushing the underneath of her, but we're getting better at that part all the time.
Temma and I are two happy girls!
October 12th, 2015
It is our one month anniversary. It is one month since Temma came home! And only one month, I can hardly imagine my life without her. Talk about gratitude... She is amazing and it is amazing we found our way to each other.
Everything is going well, and the grooming I mentioned above is going even better. She wants to be brushed (and combed!) twice a day. She totally allows me to brush her belly now, and has the cutest little behavior she does when she wants to be brushed. She walks up to me, meows, and then runs like a lightening flash and jumps up on the bed. It was suggested to use a comb as well, and I dreaded that, thinking she would not enjoy it and who knows what. Well, she likes anything that helps keep her beautiful. The comb runs through her silky smooth and soft coat just fine.
They loved her at the first vet appointment, for initial check and examination. Dr. Andersen knew she was a Balinese and said she is perfect. I agree.
August 30, 2016
In less than two weeks, it will be the one year anniversary of Temma coming home with me and the celebration of her 5th birthday! The year has gone by so fast! I missed giving an update at six months, so I'm making sure now that I don't miss it for the special occasion of September 12th. I will never forget these two days: the moment I first saw her come out from under the bed at Jane's house when I visited prior to adoption, and meeting Teresa in Jacksonville - the feeling I had when she handed over the carrier with Temma in it. For me it was an instant bond, and the wonderful feeling has never gone away. In a way it feels like I just adopted her and in a way it feels like I have had her in my life forever.
Everything is so good! I don't think we had much of an adjustment period. Or, perhaps it's that we are going to be on the honeymoon period forever. Honestly! She is just an awesome cat, and the perfect cat for me. I don't mean to say she has no quirks, but I respect them and they amuse me. She has never done anything "wrong" and thankfully, she is healthy. She makes me laugh. We know each other very well and enjoy our routines. The only thing she does not enjoy is rain or thunder, and she knows it's here before I do. She makes a dash for under the bed or to another hiding spot. Her favorite thing is to be on the porch with me and it's a bonus for her when she catches a lizard to play with.
Since I adopted her, I retired, and I enjoy every day home with her. She is my first smile every morning, and I fall asleep to her purring or just her presence every night.
I'm sorry to write such a long update. I guess I am trying to tell all of you at SCRC how much I love this dear little beautiful creature and thank you for giving me the opportunity to adopt her. She made my already-happy life happier, and she has made my life complete. I will upload some recent pictures soon!

Not with Dogs
From a hoarding group of cats, I am TERRRRRIFIED of people. It's been several months and I'm making very very slow progress in that regard, although I sure do a lot of slow blinking to try to make friends.
I am cat friendly and totally non political and would be fine with another cat. But touch me? That isn't happening for a very long, long time. Hopefully before you're old and gray, but I can't promise. No fees, just looking for a home where I can hang out. Litterbox and food habits are good, not fussy in either department.

Thomas is a wonderful cat. He's turned into a really social cat with us. Loves to be pet, fed treats. He is all over the house, no fear of anything, including our dog Jake, who is 90 pounds. Loves to eat, play, good habits. We'll probably never be able to clip his nails! And he does not like to be picked up. But he is a real sweetheart. He's made such good progress getting over his fear of people
