GARRISON
All my foster kitten brothers and sisters are getting their forever homes and I'm still waiting for mine. All those kittens will be a big cat like me so why don't you bypass all the crazy kitten antics and pick me? I'm very mild mannered, I'm very good with nice children and nice cats and I can even tolerate those crazy kittens. I tap Foster Mom's leg with my paw when she's not paying attention to me and then I gaze into her eyes and she just melts and can't help but stop what she is doing and give me some pets. She says I'm a gem.
Think about giving me a home, OK?

Love,
Garrison

Notes from Home
10-27-14
Hi Folks at SCRC! Today is my 1st anniversary celebration with my Poppy and Mommy here in Black Mountain! I have settled in so nicely and love my people. I really like them to stay home with me all day if they would, but they are in and out. Poppy is attaching a picture of me taken this morning. See, I have him trained. I prance up the middle of the bed about 5:30 (earlier if I'm really hungry) to get Poppy's attention. Sometimes Mommy rubs my head but I'm interested in food, not being petted! I walk above Poppy's pillow and sit on his bedside stand and stare him down. If that doesn't wake him up, I give him love taps on his arm until that wakes him up. He gets up and we go into the kitchen so I can get my favorite flavor of Fancy Feast (and the only kind I will eat. Then Poppy staggers back to bed. I love it when Mommy cooks chicken with salsa in the crockpot or roast beef. Yum! The smell drives me crazy all day long until supper time. I have to insist on my own bowl of whatever is cooking by sticking my head in their plates until they give in! I got a special treat tonight of chicken with salsa since it's MY SPECIAL DAY!

Poppy is attaching a picture of me taken this morning. I was so tired from getting Poppy up at 5:30, that when I ate, I came back to sleep longer on the bed. I knew what today was, so I milked it for all it was worth! Poppy and Mommy have started calling me "Prince Garrison" because I act so regal!

When company comes, I love to lounge in the living room listening to all the humans talk. I don't mind being petted either but I don't want them picking me up. I like to keep my paws on the floor except when I get on my high perch. My favorite time of all is when the evening comes and Poppy and Mommy sit on the couch to watch the news or something else on tv and I get up on the couch between them and snooze. I let Mommy rub my belly then. Poppy plays with me before bedtime. I can make a lot of noise running up and down the hall. Poppy will throw my soft fuzzy ball or one of my mice (I still have my favorite blue mouse I brought with me from Kathy's). I like to race down the hall to try to beat the ball or mice down there. These humans act like I should bring the ball or mouse back to them. Ha! I make them come and get the ball or mouse and throw it again.

Thanks to all of you for helping me get to my forever home!
Lots of slobbery purrs to everybody!
Love,
Garrison aka GG

Garrison, nicknamed G.G for Gorgeous Garrison, has blended himself into our home and hearts and is very comfortable here. He's so loving and adorable. Our good friend, Laurie, came over Tuesday. G.G. came prancing into the living room, went over to Laurie and let her pet him. He wasn't afraid or standoffish at all. He wags his tail all the time. In that respect he's more like a dog. I think our Rascal has visited him (Rascal our 13 1/2 year old cat died two hours after we brought G.G. home) to tell him his favorite haunts and habits. That means whenever I sit down on the toilet, here comes G.G. to be brushed just like Rascal always did. Bill and I laughed so hard yesterday morning because G.G. was wagging his tail up a storm and unrolled the toilet paper on the stand! When we watch t.v., he snuggles on the couch with us unless he's very tired and then he gets on his perch to zonk out. I had thumb surgery Monday so Bill is feeding him now. I told him to give him a whole can of food but he didn't. He got woken up at 4:00 a.m. two mornings ago by G.G. letting him know he'd better get up and feed him! Bill won't forget again! G.G. has been sleeping on the bed with us the last three nights. We have a kitty door from the kitchen door to the screened in porch and a kitty door downstairs from the den to the garage where the litter boxes are. He's been a bit slow to catch on to using the kitty doors. I tried to help him but he's still not sure about those doors. He'll catch on soon I'm sure. He is such a joy. We can't understand why he didn't get adopted out sooner. But I told Bill that God put a hold on him until we got in on the plan!!! He is the perfect fit for us and Peaches. We sure love him. Thanks for enabling him to come to his forever home. He understands that is where he is now! Thanks to everyone with the Siamese Cat Rescue Center for your dedication and hard work to place the Meezers.


Thanksgiving Eve: Garrison (GG) continues to be a joy. He romps and plays and engages Peaches in chases up and down the hall. He sleeps at the foot of our bed with us. If one of us happens to turn over or make GG think we're awake, he comes to the center of the bed and keeps a close eye on us. If he realizes one of us is indeed awake, he gently taps with his paw until we pet him. We took both GG and Peaches to the vet last Thursday. GG did much better this time going to the vet. We think it helped that Peaches made the trip too. It also helped that almost four weeks has gone by and he's more confident that we're not taking him to another home. He loves to run up and down the steps from the kitchen to the den. He's gotten in the habit of running into the bathroom and hopping up on the corner shower stool. Then he proceeds to wash himself very thoroughly. Monday evening I was taking a shower and he sat there and batted the shower curtain. When I finished and opened the curtain to grab my towel, he raced into the shower and jumped up on the shower stool which was very wet! I got a disgusted look from him as he jumped down and took off! He did not appreciate me getting "his" shower stool wet!

This week he has started curling himself up to sleep on the bottom shelf of the computer printer stand in the box of manila folders! That's quite a feat since he's a big cat! But he looks very comfortable and sleeps a long time in there.

He is so cute and funny. He's fascinated with the pendulum of the grandfather clock. If he could get in there...Bill and I are both so thankful it worked out for us to adopt Garrison. We think Peaches is glad too. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and a HUGE thank you for all you do to rescue the Siamese.


Well, here we are at 26 week (a full 6 months!) of having Garrison (GG). For the most part he and Peaches have gotten along very well. There are some moments of jealousy on both their parts. GG is Bill's alarm clock in the mornings. He usually sits on the bedside stand and stares at Bill until he gets up to feed him. This happens about 4:45. Good thing Bill is an early riser! For some reason, GG had hunger pains at 2:30 this morning and got Bill up then to feed him. That is the first time that has happened though. Since we put the screens on the windows and the weather is warmer, we've had the windows open some. GG loves to sit at the window and look out and sniff the air. He is back into the habit of getting on the top level of his perch and sleeping away the day. Sometimes he'll just sit up there and watch the birds in the front yard at the feeder. He loves to go out on the screened in porch but rather than go through the cat door, he'll wait until one of us comes by and opens the door for him! Peaches does that too!

GG still insists on eating just the one flavor of Fancy Feast he prefers even though we've tried other flavors. He will just sit at the bowl and look up at us with those brilliant blue eyes as if to say, "What makes you think I'm going to eat this stuff!" We think if he gets hungry enough he'll eat it. NOT!!! He wins the war on that one!

GG keeps Shirley, Diana and Kathy informed of his life in the Hodge house by sending them e-mail updates. He certainly appreciates all three of these special ladies for giving him a second chance at life!

GG is a delightful character. He is wide open and loves to play. He also likes to push the limits. About six weeks ago, Bill and I sat down to plates of spaghetti for supper. GG came running in and jumped up on the table. I stood up and picked him up and was in the process of moving him to the floor but his claws grabbed onto my placemat. There went my whole plate of spaghetti, my glass of water spilled all over the place. Of course there was a huge clatter as the plate broke into hundreds of pieces. GG jumped from my hands and hit the carpet in the living room running full speed. Peaches was sitting in the hall and even though he didn't know exactly what had happened, he took off to his usual place of safety under the bed! Bill and I started the clean up process getting the spaghetti up, then picking up the bigger pieces of the plate. I got the vacuum hose out and started vacuuming up tiny pieces of glass all over the kitchen/dining room. I even threw out all the bowls of cat food on the outside chance some glass may have flown in them. We got it all cleaned up and vacuumed the whole area one more time. Then I sat down to another plate of spaghetti which was cold by then! What a trip!!! It was quite awhile before we saw either kitty that evening! When GG did appear, he slunk around the corner with his blue eyes huge! I tell you, there's never a dull moment around here!

He's so cute waiting for us to come home. We had our monthly dance last night and came up the hill at 10:30. GG was sitting on the top of the couch watching out the window for us. Sometimes he'll be sitting on a shelf beneath the office window watching for us.

He is very lovable and loving but on his terms. He is not a lap kitty and does not like to be picked up. All four limbs start "swimming" if I dare pick him up! We laugh at his purr box which is so loud and rusty sounding. If he's with Bill, I can hear him purring if I'm in another room!

We're very happy with GG (Peaches may not say that everyday but he loves him too)! We think GG is very happy to be here too.

ELLIE
Agent 99 here -- you may have heard of me before. My talents as a spy are numerous, and as you can see I am an expert at mimicking sealpoints, torties, and snowshoes. I've been shadowing the humans for months now, living in their very midst virtually undetected. But then WHAM, I suddenly find myself in their evil KAOS trap! I try to reason with them with my fluent use of Chinese, French, and of course 'Meow'. I try to hypnotize my captors with my sapphire eyes, my feline wiles, and promises to 'not run away' if they open the door. But they are having none of it. As a last resort I am being super cuddly and needy - oh the things I must do to regain my freedom!

Agent 99 is now named Ellie and is a true delight. She very quickly became one of the family. Her best buddy is our little Boston Terrier Petunia. They play constantly. Ellie is the most affectionate cat we have ever had. She constantly wants to be held or in someway touching us.She loves my daughter the most and has been a blessing to her.

Scout is so happy in his new home and we are so happy to have him! He is such a love bug. He is very affectionate, playful and chatty. My husband said that late last night Scout was playing soccer in the dining room with one of his toys. Periodically he would go into to the den to see my husband, tell him the score, get pets and continue his game! He sleeps with my daughter which she adores. When they play he brings her his toy and spins around in circles. One of his favorite activities is to sit on one of us, get tons of pets, purr and suckle his side. He is such a funny boy. We feel so blessed to have such a wonderful cat in our home. I can't wait for our vet to meet him this week. He is a Siamese lover as well.

Scout got a glowing report from the veterinarian. He is so energetic! When we play with his toys he gets so excited that he jumps shoulder high! His personality is really coming out as the days unfold. He is a quintessential Siamese! He is extremely chatty and affectionate. He loves everyone! He obviously came from a very loving home. I don't think that it has ever occurred to him that someone would not love and care for him. My mother is up for a visit and she can't get over how dear he is. Feeling blessed in Augusta, GA.

Hi everyone!
Can't believe I've been with Sue and Bruce for four years now -- that's a lot of litter, especially when you consider that I have three Siamese "sisters," two of which also came from the wonderful Rescue folks. But I try to keep the gals in line with my constant playfulness, continual chirping (Mom calls it my singing), and refusal to stay off the counters and other food surfaces. I mean, what's a guy for? If I were human, I'd be driving a pickup, wearing a cap sideways and have a beer in my hand. But they love me anyway. I sleep with Mom and Dad in the center of the king-sized bed, making sure I nuzzle up to Dad all night, playfully edging him into a pretzel until he almost falls off. He swears I'm responsible for the kink in his back, but I just look at the girls, who also stake out their territory on the middle of the mattress. It's great fun never being responsible for anything! One of my favorite tricks is chewing on cardboard boxes -- you can hear me all over the house. My humans get my teeth cleaned every year, but that doesn't deter my crunching. All of us have adapted beautifully to our home in Portland (especially the stairs - !) and are happy and healthy. A big hurrah to the Siamese Rescue Center people for finding us a loving home!!!

Asher is doing very well. He and our other kitten, Sasha, have become great playmates and he's also settled in quite well with our two dogs. He's a very affectionate and playful kitten. Couldn't be happier. See photo on cat tree (Sasha rear left, Asher front right).

Oct 27, 2014: Asher is doing great! He and Sasha (our younger Siamese) are best friends and it sounds like a stampede across the hardwood floors at play time. He's also turning into quite the lap kitty (on his terms of course) and he loves to travel around on my husband's shoulders and test his jumping skills. Couldn't have asked for a better match. :-)

Well something magical happened around Samantha's one year anniversary, she has finally found her voice! It is still a little squeak of a thing but she has been using it to let us know exactly what she thinks or wants. She is a wonderful cat and has really come out of her shell and decided that she will accept us as her people. We are lucky to have her!

***********************

Wow it has been six months since we brought Samantha (FKA Charley) home. She is a very quite cat, she still does not talk except at meal times! We are working on her trust issues and she is getting more tolerant of having us around - she just wants it all on her terms. She is very content to sleep with us, have head rubs, and stay in the room with us but the holding and lap sitting, not so much yet. She has really grown into a beautiful cat, he now weighs 9.5 lbs. We have issues with her scratching furniture and were using soft paws. We are now working on modifying that behavior without the soft paws and we are making good progress. Thanks to all the people that made this happen, we are so happy with Samantha as a part of our family.
***************************

We have had Ms Sammi Cat for 4 months and she is doing great. She is a wonderful cat and has all of a sudden grown from a silly kitty into a beautiful cat.
****************************

Samantha has been with us six weeks now and is continuing to get settled. This week she has started getting in our laps for short periods of loving. She has figured out that all showers in our house require her "supervision" and gets quite miffed if the bathroom door is shut! She really is a great cat!
*****************************

Samantha (formerly Charley) is doing great. She is such a funny little thing, very playful and full of mischief! She loves to chase her feather teaser and runs thru the house at top speed if she feels we are not paying her enough attention.

Samantha has gained about a pound in the month that we have had her and her first vet visit was great. We have put soft paws on her because we can't get her to stop scratching the leather chairs but we are going to work on that in a couple of months once she gets a bit more settled in and secure with us.

She and our other cat are still getting to know one another, they are both sleeping on the bed with us at night with no fighting! She has been a great addition to the family and has helped our other cat get over the lose of his sister.

CONTESSA
Sweet, loving, vocal girl settling in at my foster home. So far, I enjoy conversations, being petted and wet food! Foster mom says I have lap cat potential and am a little love bug. We'll be getting more pix this weekend, so stay tuned.

Notes from Home
Contessa now sleeps on the bed mushed up against me, and when I wake up in the morning she is purring. She has begun to follow me around the house and sit in whatever room I'm in -- even the computer room is okay now. She's guarding the door as I type this! Not a lap cat, but definitely interested in keeping us company.

7/9/2010: Contessa's favorite seat is my stitching chair! We are still working out a schedule of when I am allowed to use it, but if I'm at the computer, she prefers to sit at my feet, asking for rubs. She's also decided that if I must be in my chair, she might as well be nearby and will use the Millie Bed, first lying across it and then gradually curling into it, snoring the whole while. She also loves my shoes when I take them off in the evening and will nap with her head pillowed on them.

10/7/2011: Contessa survived her first bladder infections this year, but is otherwise very very healthy, with a beautiful glossy coat that I think is helped along by the "soup" (tiny bit of wet food mushed in water) that I give her in the evening. She's still a chair-hog and complains about any change in routine. Reminders about "soup" begin as early as 4:30 pm, just in case I might forget. She joins us for dinner and rounds us up for bedtime. Even on the hottest nights, she must sleep touching me, and often touching my husband as well!

5/13/2014: Contessa is now with St. Francis. She had been losing weight for several months now, and often unable to keep much down. She had no "masses" in her GI tract, and the vets were at a loss for what to do besides trying other foods and increasing her liquids. Yesterday evening she threw up everything in her stomach and was struggling to breathe. We took her to urgent care where the doctor told us that there wasn't anything to be done but say good-bye. (Anyone who thinks our younger people are cold and ruthless should be shown a video of my daughter's reaction: she's nearly 25 and was sobbing for the rest of the night.) I held her while we said our goodbyes and through to the end. All three of us are so very sad to have our hearts ripped open again, but very grateful that Contessa was ours for the time we had. And we, very much hers.

Too smart, too loving, too busy, too demanding. Are you kidding me? Siamese are supposed to be those things, right? And you're here because you want a Siamese cat, right? So see if you can put TOO and TOO together and figure it out - You plus Me equals Siamese bliss! Adoption Scholarship offered!

Crystal is the perfect companion- what a love bug. She is like velcro kitty! People cannot believe how warm and cuddly she is. We are staying with my parents to help them as they are having some medical issues and she is a great comfort to them both. I have attached a pic of her.

Notes from Home
Dara (fka Delilah) is the quintessential diva seal point girl. Too smart by half, intense, interactive, an obsessive fetcher of schmoushies and a chatter, although she still has a squeaky voice, not yet a Meezer yowrl. She was smaller than her brother, Saming, from the beginning and is still a little cat, but with a big personality, She also got a bit chubby during Saming's over-two-month broken-leg recuperation, since she wasn't allowed to rough house and rampage around the house with him until his leg healed. They are making up for lost time now and hopefully her tubby middle will slim down again from all that exercise. In her intense demand for attention, she sometimes nips our face, arms and hands, and tries to too roughly rabbit-kick our arms, but we are working on discouraging that behavior by squealing like a hurt cat when she does it. That usually (briefly) stops her. And Saming, the sweetie, tries to come to our rescue when we squeal, giving Dara a warning pat or nip for being too rough with us. We are totally in love with both of them!! [late April 2009]

10/27/09 Yesterday was our 1 year anniversary of being owned by Dara (full name Mai Dara Nin, meaning Silk Star Sapphire in Thai, I think). She continues to be a bossy but loving diva to us and her brother, Saming. She's now 1 year and 3 months old and remains quite petite, smaller than Saming, but she has lost the chubbiness she picked up when Saming wasn't able to play with her when his broken leg was healing. She is much better about the nipping and hand/feet attacking, although she still gets cranked up sometimes and has to be calmed down. And she has four mousies that she will demand to play fetch with whenever she is awake--we're getting very good at "fetching" them when she knocks them under furniture. She and Saming run the house and are catered to by us, their loyal and besotted servants. We've been on three road trips with them, the first at Thanksgiving 08 to NC, one in early July for a long weekend to Virginia and the other to a NC beach for two weeks plus a couple day stop in Virginia, and they were wonderful travellers. They hunted bugs in the beach house, watched Bird TV out the windows and went for a few strolls in their harnesses and leashes on the house desk. They both will have their annual vet visit in the next few weeks and we expect they will be judged to be very healthy kitties and be admired by the vet and his staff. Thanks to all involved in bringing us these two adorable babies! Almost forgot, Dara is Ms. July Sidebar in the 2010 SCRC calendar--we're thrilled and going to order many calendars for Christmas presents!

27 Jan 2011--Oh, dear, it's 3 months past Dara's 2 year anniversary of coming home (on 26 October 2008) and I'm only now updating! She's still a diva, an OCD mouse fetcher and the ruler of her house, her beans and her brother, Saming. When he briefly tries to assert his dominance by grabbing her scruff in his mouth and "mounting" her--he doesn't know what to do after that, so he bunny-kicks her-- she twists around and bops him on the head until he lets go, even though he's bigger than her. She occasionally allows him to play with "her" mouse, but quickly thinks better of her generosity and takes it back, grrrr and hissing (in play) to remind him that it is HERS! She knows exactly how to get our attention (scratching a chair or jumping and sitting on the computer mouse) so she can get her way.

Their Nov 2009 and 2010 annual vet visits were uneventful . . . well, except the getting to and back from them, which involves lugging their carrier on bus, ferry and subway from Staten Island to Manhattan. Both are healthy kitties! They are wonderful travellers and accompany us on all our car trips--in 2010, that included trips to Virginia, Ohio, 2 weeks in North Carolina at the beach and another NC trip over Thanksgiving. We are so grateful to SCRC for saving and bringing our babies into our lives! (New pictures attached)

11/10/12: I'm a bit late in updating Dara's 4 year anniversary in her forever home, which was on 26 Oct 2012, but a little thing called Hurricane Sandy cropped up before I could get my act together. We lost power (and with it, heat and hot water) on 29 Oct here in northeast Staten Island and didn't get it back until 3 Nov. Both Dara and Saming felt the chilly apartment was all my fault and would look at me from their Millie bed as if to say "Meowmy, DO something to make it warm again!" All is nearly back to normal again, at least for the kitties, who don't have to commute into Manhattan, and can warm themselves in windows and on radiators to their hearts' content. But, again due to Sandy, we're a bit late in setting up their 2012 vet visit--we'll get that taken care of soon.

They are still our faithful travelling companions and spent their/our two weeks at the beach this year in the company of my sister's now three (!!) Patterdale terriers. With careful use of child gates, everyone behaved and no unmonitored cat/dog intersections occurred--whew!

We continue to sing the praises of SCRC to anyone we know who might be interested in adopting a Siamese and succeeded in getting our NJ friend, Linda, to adopt her two from SCRC a few years ago--Jake and Lucy landed in the lap of love and luxury as a result.

26 Oct 2013: Happy 5th Gotcha Day, Saming & Dara! Dara remains the Diva and Queen of anyone she meets. She acted very snarky to Saming when he had a rough patch this last month. He was diagnosed with struvite crystals and we're switching both cats to a urinary prescription diet. But, after being at the emergency vet for only four hours, Dara decided she'd never seen this "new" vet-shtinky cat before, so we spent over a week keeping them separated and doing monitored reintroductions. Once she decided she might know him and tried to remake friends, he started hissing at her :-O We couldn't blame him since she'd been so hissy, snarly and hit-him-in-the-head for so many days. Both are finally back to loving each other and playing normally--whew! Our next annual vet appointment is in January 2014, so we'll get a follow-up examination of Saming and his crystals then, so long as he doesn't start showing symptoms of having trouble peeing again between now and then. I've added a new picture or two.

26 October 2014: Early this morning I got my yearly reminder from my Siamese Cat Rescue Center interviewer, Kelly Rose Mullin, that today is Saming and Dara's 6th Gotcha Day! Oh, my, how time has flown, from baby kittens to my adult babies Many, many thanks to SCRC and all their wonderful volunteers for saving so many beautiful Siamese in need. And special thanks to Jeanne Brunn, who saved my duo from the Roanoke SPCA, stashed them in an office to keep them healthy and away from shelter germs until she could officially bring them into SCRC and fostered them into the sociable darlings they were and are <3

SAMING (THONG SUDSAMING )
Hi!

I'm Sampson, part of a bonded pair. Meowmy says I'm just as sweet as can be and she loves to watch me snuggle with my sister, Delaliah.

My sister & I were promised we could stay together forever, so if you are looking for two, we're the ones for you!

More later!
Sampson
Notes from Home
Saming (fka Sampson) is our first flame point and is everything I've since learned about flame-points--a little (and getting bigger by the day!) lover boy who loves to give kisses, lie on Corky's or my chest and tuck his head under our chins and gaze lovingly at us. As some of you know, he broke his right upper arm in mid-February 09 and went through 2 surgeries in one day to repair it, then 2 months of house arrest, first in a cage then confined to one room at a time, so it could heal. He caught it in a door (between the door frame and the hinge side of the door) while playing with Dara (fka Delilah). We have since secured our doors with door stops and hooks so this never happens again. At 9 1/2 months, he's already a big, lean, muscular boy and promises to keep right on growing even bigger. We are both so happy we adopted him and his sister! [late April 2009 update]

10/27/09 Yesterday was our 1 year anniversary of being owned by Saming (full name Thong SudSaming, meaning Golden Ghost/Spirit Tiger in Thai, I think). He continues to be a love to us and his sister, Dara. He's now 1 year and 3 months old and getting bigger, but still lean and muscular, by the day. His broken leg is fully healed and it is almost unnoticable that it was ever broken--just a bit stiffer than the other front leg. He and Dara run the house and are catered to by us, their loyal and besotted servants. We've been on three road trips with them, the first at Thanksgiving 08 to NC, one in early July for a long weekend to Virginia and the other to a NC beach for two weeks plus a couple day stop in Virginia, and they were wonderful travellers. They hunted bugs in the beach house, watched Bird TV out the windows and went for a few strolls in their harnesses and leashes on the house desk. They both will have their annual vet visit in the next few weeks and we expect they will be judged to be very healthy kitties and be admired by the vet and his staff. Thanks to all involved in bringing us these two adorable babies!

27 Jan 2011--Oh, dear, it's 3 months past Saming's 2 year anniversary of coming home (on 26 October 2008) and I'm only now updating! He's a big ol' momma's boy, who thinks it is his job to keep my nose and mouth clean (see new picture) and to dry me off whenever I get any part of me wet (post hand washing, post face washing, post shower). He also is his sister, Dara's, faithful subordinate, except when he briefly tries to assert his dominance by grabbing her scruff in his mouth and "mounting" her--he doesn't know what to do after that, so he bunny-kicks her until she twists around and bops him on the head until he lets go. He loves to herd us around the house, being quite sure we can't get from the bedroom to the kitchen each morning and from the living room to the bedroom each night without his direction, which involves winding himself around our feet as we try to walk down the hall--we've had many a near accident this way, including Saming becoming a furry soccer ball when we trip over him.

Their Nov 2009 and 2010 annual vet visits were uneventful . . . well, except the getting to and back from them, which involves lugging their carrier on bus, ferry and subway from Staten Island to Manhattan. Both are healthy kitties! They are wonderful travellers and accompany us on all our car trips--in 2010, that included trips to Virginia, Ohio, 2 weeks in North Carolina at the beach and another NC trip over Thanksgiving. We are so grateful to SCRC for saving and bringing our babies into our lives!

26 Oct 2013: Happy 5th Gotcha Day, Saming & Dara! Saming has had a rough patch this last month. What appeared to be a partial urinary blockage a few weeks ago was thankfully not, but he was diagnosed with struvite crystals and we have transitioned him and Dara over to part Science Diet C/D and part Royal Canin SO. Although wet food would be better, neither cat likes the wet as much as they do the dry (odd cats ;-) ), so they're still getting mainly dry with an occasional small bowl of wet. And Dara decided she'd never seen this "new" vet-shtinky cat before when he got back from 4 hours at the emergency vet, so we spent over a week keeping them separated and doing monitored reintroductions. Once she decided she might know him and tried to remake friends, he started hissing at her :-O We couldn't blame him since she'd been so hissy, snarly and hit-him-in-the-head for so many days. Both are finally back to loving each other and playing normally--whew!
