KIKI (KILALA)
I've been lucky enough to have been loved by a hero since I was 6 weeks old - my Mom went in to the military to protect our country, and now I'm looking for another hero to share the next decade of my life with. I'm playful, loving, healthy and friendly. I get along with other cats (no bullies, please) and am an all around great guy. Might you be the one for me?

Notes from Home
Hello to all who loved me and cared for me, I'm home with my new mom or meowmy! We are so happy together! She pets me, scratches behind my ears, and snuggles with me all the time. I'm not even bothered the least bit by her human kids ( as long as they understand I'm most important ). She even talks to me and plays with me. We just want to say thank you! And we'll talk again soon! She even told me that I'm going to have a baby sister from the rescue coming soon! Don't you worry! I'm training my mom well and IL make sure my new sister is treated like the princess she is, after all you have to be a princess when your bro is a prince!

SUMING
I'm going to look a little different when foster mommy gets some new pictures of me in a week or two - you see, no one knew when I first came out of the shelter and had this picture taken that I had picked up an infection there that would soon start damaging my left eye. Despite everything the eye specialist could do, it has progressed and this week I had a surgery that is making foster mommy sad, but she tells me now my left eye will never hurt anymore. She tells me that I am the most beautiful girl on the inside and very soon I will be the most beautiful girl on the outside again too. I have been trying to cheer her up, reminding her that my right eye is fine and that with all the doctor visits and medicines I have been just as brave and sweet and loving and cheerful as any kitty could be, and I'll just be even sweeter and happier now that my eye doesn't hurt any more.

Is there a place in your heart for a sweet, soft girl who has kept her spirits up and purred and purred through everything? Then please keep a watch right here for updates on me as I get better and get my strength back, and maybe when I am all well I can be your sweet kitty forever.

PRIMROSE
I am the sweetest little girl looking for my furrever home! I was really lonely for a long time, and now I love to get attention from my humans. I talk and chirp and flip and flop all over to make sure I get plenty of petting! My foster mom says when I can stay still long enough she will get better pictures of me. Right now I just want to feel cared for and loved. I am an adult cat in a kitten package - desperate for attention, short little legs and tail, super playful! Please ask about me! I promise to love you lots!!!!

Prim has been here for a little over a month now, and she has been an absolute joy. She made herself at home right away. She's playful, curious, feisty and affectionate. She and her new big brother Pim play for hours every day. They are perfect companions and keep me entertained all day. I'm so glad I was able to adopt her!

February 2017
It's been two years since Primrose moved in and stole my heart. She is as playful as ever, happy, healthy and very loving. She loves her food, so much so that she is currently on a diet. She still hates to be picked up but jumps on my lap when she wants to be petted, One of her favorite things is to cuddle with her 'big brother', while he washes her face.

Are you looking for trouble in a small package for the holidays?! I love people and I love to play! If you've got another cat or kitten who will enjoy my crazy, rough and tumble style, please ask about me today!
Purrs, Chelsea
Notes from Home
I can't believe it has been 8 years since I picked up Idunn (Chelsea). She is still the rough and tumble girl that all of you described when she was a kitten. She and her older brother still tolerate each other and occasionally I find them snuggling. But if either cries out in fear they other comes running immediately.

She is healthy as a horse and eats like a little pig. She also adores people food, so I have learned to be careful in not leaving out ANYTHING because she will take it. Her latest favorites are cheese and crackers.

When I come home she is near the door but behind her talkative brother waiting patiently to be petted and fed. She is very patient especially when it comes to filling the need of her brother.

Idunn is also still pretty quiet and does more of a "murph" rather than a meow. She is also more of a side cuddler than a lap cuddler. Also she is my "left" cat (and her brother is my "right" cat. Which is pretty funny because it doesn't matter if it is on the couch, sitting at the dinner table or laying in bed they each have their own side.

Once again thanks for all the great work you do. My family wouldn't be complete without Idunn.

Barbara 2/18/17


It is hard to believe it has been four years but on the other hand it is hard to remember not having Idunn as part of my family. She has grown up to be an adorable inquisitive little lady. Don't get me wrong she is still a fighter and I keep telling my boy cat, Leif, to stick with her if they get lost outside. Her usual place is hanging out on the chair or sofa next to me. She is still hesitant to meet new people but her circle of people she trusts has grown over the years. Right now we have two cat sitters that she adores probably because they are male and she has them wrapped around her paw.

As for her health, she is well and gets her yearly check up in April. She hates being put into a carrier and if she sees it whe goes into hiding making me take up to an hour to finally wrangle her into it. Once we get there she is fine, but it is the getting there that is a problem. She also travels with me and her brother to NC to visit my dad.

Idunn does get along with Leif just like any brother and sister. They aren't the cuddly sort but boy if one they cries out in trouble the other one is off in a flash to find out what's wrong. I was looking for a buddy for Leif who also needed a buddy. They are both independent but fiercely protective of each other. I could ask for more.

I have included some photos. You will notice that her coloring has darkened to where she now looks like a snow tiger. Everyone that meets here is impressed by her looks but they get hooked by her personality.

Update 1/17/16

It is hard to believe it has been SEVEN years since I picked up Idunn in Wytheville, VA. I can't imagine her not being around. My boy cat, Leif, would disagree but what older brother wouldn't. She is still the independent and feisty kitten I picked up. She loves to be petted but is not a lap cat. She is still cautious of people, but once she knows someone they are her buddy forever.

So far we haven't had any health problems and still go to our same vet clinic every spring for our "well kitten" checkup. She is a voracious eater and so you have to be carefully if you leave anything down even if it is just to go to the bathroom as it might not be there when you get back.

To everyone who helped Idunn become part of my family, once again many thanks. I am not only proud to have a Siamese Rescue cat, but glad to be a driver for the Meezer Express.

2/17/17 Hello, it's been a very very long time, my meowmy has been slacking off informing about my well being!! well so I will try to make the long story short...since a lot had happened since we last updated. My parents decided they wanted to move without consulting with me first...anyhow back in 2015 they started to look for a house and towards the end of that year we ended up moving with my grandparents waiting for the closing of the so called home!! well it took forever..... my humans kept saying we will soon go home, they were very stressed too but i didn't really care about that i just wanted to go home because i didn't get along with my grandparents cats.... i just think they couldn't resist me... and they were jealous of all the attention i got... finally we ended up moving to our new house mid summer 2016, our new house was pretty and all for me.I once became again the KING OF THE CASTLE......but it wasn't until recently an intruder try to come in to MY Castle and it really annoyed me (the intruder was a neighbor's cat, he seemed too friendly and invited himself to our door to come in, and meowed non stop!) well i started to mark my territory!!! how dare he wanted to come in....my parents were not happy and had been doing so many weird things to stopped me and i think i've gotten good or so they said, although i think i've been good just protecting them from intruders that wanted to hurt them!!! anyhow i think they are happy with me and they LOVE ME, at some point they mentioned on looking to adopt a kitty but i think they got a clear message from the KING.....
I'll try to post an update often.... LOVE ALWAYS and FUREVER, Quinn and His Humans....

10/11/14 Hi all! it has been a long time since we last updated on Quinn's home! Firs of all I want to thank everybody at SRC for the detailed work you do to find these beautiful cats their forever home, they deserve it!!! Now moving on to our loving boy, he is more than what we could imagine to ask in a cat he is so loving, caring and just overall affectionate. He continues to love to play with different toys like balls, strings, wands or really anything he can find attractive enough to play with. this past week it has been apples, since we have plenty of them around after going apple picking! I think he really likes the smell and colors! He continues to show affection to all of us,he knows when one of us aren't feeling well and shares some head butts,sits in our laps and purrs. He loves playind hide and seek as well as enjoy playing with the bedding while doing the beds, which can turn into a never end chore! lol but we have learnt to play along. He is definitely a very playful, affectionate and the best cat ever. Purrss and kisses . Until next time !

9/12/12 Hello it has been a while since our last update but I can tell you for sure we've been having so much fun with Quinn. He has stolen our entire family's hearts, we truly love, care for him very much and I know for sure he knows that well. He is more and more affectionate always seeking attention and company we still get domments from family adn friends thath they have never seen a cat like him because he has to be where everybody is. He loves to play fetch with us and we do it few times a day, he makes sure to bring the ball to us when ready to play. When we are out running errands I think he senses us coming home and he'll be waiting by the door and just meows so much and rubs his head on all of us. During this summer we visisted my parents for long weekends and we brought him with us and he got very confortable at the house and made a new friend Lola the miniature schnauzer, they became good friends, they love chasing each other up and down the stairs and playing with everything they found at the end the will kiss eact other and take naps. He loves to soak up the sun, also loves jumping into boxes and our grocery bags as well. We couldn't ask for any better cat than Quinn, he has become our little boy we love him very much and thanful he is OURS.
I will post some pictures hpe you like i!

3/29/12 We brought Quinn to his forever home on Saturday 3/24/12 and since he got here he’s been a total love, he adjusted very quick. He is very curious and really enjoys reorganizing the kitchen cabinets and closets. He also has so much fun sitting down on daddy’s computer when he is working or perhaps he is trying to email some furry friends! Daddy doesn’t mind at all to stop and play with him. We think he is a gymnast! He does aerial flips and twirls to catch a wand toy an every once in a while does a somersault, he amazed us with his personality and tricks. Today he had his vet visit and was such a good boy, Dr. Angela fell in love with him, he let her brushed his teeth and I know he will let me do as well for he has a little gingivitis and we will have to do it often. We are so pleased with him; Quinn is a wonderful and perfect kitty for our family. Daddy, Alana and Matthew love to walk home and search for him, of course he is so happy to get all the love and attention. He is a spoiled kitty and that is fine with us, we love him so much already.
To Quinn’s foster mom, Diane; we can’t thank you enough for caring and loving him. It was a joy to meet you when we picked him up. I will be always thankful for all your guidance, information you provide it has been helpful and continue to be.
Emily our interviewer, thanks for your help, support and walking us through this journey.
I will keep you posted with Quinn’s development.

4/17/12 It's been a little over 3 weeks since we got Quinn. He has adjusted perfectly with his new enviroments, he remains curious, always looking for a new place to climb, search and just overall play. In the last 2 weeks he made a discovery!! Matthew's bunk bed which he loves and takes his naps during the day. He loves to play with the little toys his brother matthew has, he even claimed a little mickey mouse he found in Matthew's room as his now!! he carries it everywhere. Quinn loves to play with his wand and pulls it from us and later brings it back to continue playing. My son Matthew loves to play chasing him and Quinn follows along in the other hand Alana plays with him as her baby carries him, burps him and Quinn has no problem with that either, he seems content to all the attention. He loves to sit by the windows and get the air blown on his face we called him our little Lion King, he is so adorable. He seems very interested on the bath tub, he sits at the edge while Matthew is taking a bath and has attempt to jump to the water, he also loves to sit next to the sink while i am doing dishes, so I tend to open a little stream of water for him to play and he enjoys it very much!! I will continue to post more info on Quinn's adventures.....
4/17/12 I just upload some pictures...

5/28/12 What a great time we've had with Quinn it's been 2 months since he came home but it feels like he has been with us forever!! he is very happy with us and at home, he is very loving, affectionate, playful and I can keep going on and on, he is just a great cat :). Recently he found an empty toilet paper roll and he loves playing with it, so we now save those for him to play! Alana brings books specially for him to read before bed time. He definitely loves books !! Matthew in the other hand runs to him as soon as he comes back from school dropping everything on his way in and greets Quinn with a big hugg and "hello boy" follow immediately by a conversation, Matthew ask him about his day and he tells me every day that Quinn was sad because he didn't have Matthew nor Alana and missed them so much!! Quinn allows Matthew to check his paws, ears, rub his belly, after all that they go on to play, or sometimes he just sits next to Matt to watch as he takes makes a big mess with his toys.Well thats for now I will bring you more updates soon!!

RUBY
Just arrived. More information soon.
Notes from Home
2013-09-03 Ruby came home! During the 300-mile car trip, she proved herself to be an excellent traveler.

2013-09-08 Ruby made her first visit to the vet since coming home. She has gained half a pound and is doing well except for some conjunctivitis in both eyes. The vet says this is left over from her pre-adoption upper respiratory infection. Now we have eye drops for Ruby, which she does not like, and some lysine treats. For our other cat, 12-year-old Shmulik, the vet gave me some Feliway. Shmulik needs to be calmed down. He has not been his usual laid-back, calm & relaxed self since Ruby's arrival.

2013-09-11 The Feliway has worked wonders on Shmulik. He has been far less nervous about new arrival Ruby. Last night, the two cats touched noses (with one small hiss from Shmulik), and then they followed each other around the house for the rest of the evening. Ruby spent the night in "her" bedroom with the door shut, and today both of them were allowed to roam free in the house. There have been no more signs of hostility. I think it will not be long before they are best buddies!

2013-09-16 Today the vet pronounced Ruby's conjunctivitis to be cleared up. What a relief for her and for me! The twice-daily doses of eye drops was interfering with bonding, even though it was an easy process. In the past week, every time I've reached for her, she takes off, sure that more eye drops are forthcoming. Ruby and Shmulik are getting along very well, although they have not been cuddling up together yet. Ruby has gained over a pound since coming home; she is a very good eater!

2013-09-22 Ruby and Shmulik have a cordial relationship. They sniff noses -- or, occasionally, opposite ends -- and then they go their separate ways. I've been using a wand toy to encourage them to play in each other's presence. They like the "cube" that Kay sent home with Ruby, especially when I spray it with Feliway and sprinkle it with catnip (see photo).

2013-09-30 Slowly, the two cats are getting closer and closer. Today I took a photo of them sharing a small tabletop in a sunny spot. Ruby wants to play, but Shmulik seems uninterested so far.

2013-10-23 During the past two weeks, Ruby had a second bout of conjunctivitis. This required applying salve from a small tube into her eyes two or three times a day, plus, once a day, half an antihistamine pill (this last from Kate, Ruby's caregiver). Finally, Ruby seems to have recovered. These constant medical ministrations have made her leery of me. I pat her & pick her up often, to show her that these actions don't always lead to getting medicated, & I talk to her a lot. Despite frequent use of her name when we speak to her, Ruby still does not respond to it. (By "responding to her name," I mean that I am hoping to see her cock an ear in my direction, or turn her head, or look up at me, or best of all, come to me. She does none of these things in response to hearing her name.) This makes me wonder: is "Ruby" is her original name or a shelter name? If it is not her original name, would she answer to her "real" name, if I knew it? I have also used many pet names with her: Peanut, YumYum (for awhile, I thought she was responding to this name, but no), Little Bit, Teeny Weeny, and ZeeZee. She does not respond to any of them. Only one thing brings her running: the sound of the treat bag being opened! Ruby & Shmulik are still on guarded, cordial terms. For the past three weeks, Shmulik has been plagued by health woes probably caused by his age (12.5), which required more medication & special dietary food, but now he seems much better. Both cats sleep on my bed at night, but they stay about a foot and a half apart.

2013-11-16 Yesterday Ruby went to the vet again, her fifth visit since coming home. The conjunctivitis is gone, and now we have a definite diagnosis for the cause of the recurrent problems: she has "dry eye"! The poor little thing is now on two "dry eye" medications for life, plus the antihistamine from caregiver Kay. Morning and evening, Ruby gets a drop of Cyclosporin in the right eye and then a 2mg chlorpheniramine pill (that last medication is "as needed," & it's needed for now). From 2-4 times during the day, she gets a ribbon of "artificial tears" ointment in the right eye. Because of the near-constant medicating for the past 2.5 months, Ruby is still wary of me; her nervousness at my approach comes and goes. Many times a day, I caress her, give her a treat, and play with her, in addition to the 4-6 times a day she must be medicated. I hope she'll come to trust me and to realize that my approach does not necessarily mean she's about to get more medicine.

2013-11-16 On an amusing note, Ruby is certainly a good eater. As of yesterday, she has gained about two pounds since coming home. She weighs 9.6 pounds! She looks fine, sort of like a round little barrel, but apparently, she is not overweight.

2013-11-22 Ruby has a new trick! She often hangs out in the living room, resting on the rug. Always, when I've approached her there, she takes off & leads me on a slow-speed, low-key "chase" through the dining room, kitchen, hall, and back through the living room -- 'round & 'round until I give up. Starting yesterday, she ducks into her pink cube toy that's on the living room rug, & there she waits for me. Ruby has discovered that when she's in the cube, she gets petted, never medicated! She is getting lots of love this way! See photos for a pic of RUBE IN THE CUBE.

2013-11-25 Ruby has grown to trust me much more in the past few days. I have also gotten quicker at dispensing her eye medication, so that she doesn't have time to get squirmy & upset while waiting for the drop to plop into her eye. The day may come when she regards receiving her meds as no big deal. She is quite affectionate & sweet! The more often I stop by one of her dozing spots to pet her, the happier she is.

2014-02-06 Ruby's eye problems have cleared up, so the eye drops are no longer necessary, thank goodness. With each administration of the eye drops, she was growing more and more upset instead of getting used to and accepting them. She started biting me -- HARD!! -- during medicating. I tried praising her, cuddling her, and giving her treats, but nothing helped. To my bewilderment, her formerly affectionate demeanor became mistrustful and even hostile. Then one day I saw a commercial for human use of these eye drops, Cyclosporin 2%. The commercial said that the eye drops may burn. So that was the problem -- poor Ruby! And I had imagined the eye drops were soothing to her red, inflamed eye! Right away (that was in December), I stopped giving her the eye drops. By then, her eye condition had cleared up, fortunately, and it has not recurred. Over the past two months, Ruby has slowly grown more trusting and affectionate. If the eye infection recurs, she will NOT be getting Cyclosporin 2% ever again!

2014-04-23 In the past several months, Ruby has been showing signs of starting to trust me again. Sometimes she chirps a greeting when I approach her. Whenever I reach a hand toward her, she no longer ducks, but instead, she raises her head to be petted. So far, when her eye problem has recurred, it has been a mild case. For about a week, I've given her one or two 2mg pills of chlorpheniramine every day, and the eye inflammation goes away. Oddly, she doesn't mind getting a pill ! I have posted a photo of Ruby snoozing in her new cat tree. She and Shmulik still don't like each other. Occasionally, they start to play together, but when he gets too close, she growls and hisses until he backs off. She has latched onto my husband as her favorite nighttime snooze partner.

2014-09-07 This month marks our adoption anniversary: Ruby has been our little fur girl for a year! She is doing very well. She enjoys being petted and played with. Last week I took her to the vet for her annual checkup and shots. Next week she goes back for a teeth cleaning. Ruby and Shmulik are getting along better. Occasionally, I hear them growling -- which is invariably caused by Shmulik trying to sniff Ruby's fanny -- I call out, "Be nice! Be niiiiice!" and they quiet down and move away from each other. Sometimes they sunbathe together, lying near, but not too near, each other. Now and then, they gallop through the house in a sort of parallel play. My husband and I are happy that Ruby is part of our household.

2014-10-29 Ruby loves getting cat treats. Last spring, I taught her a simple trick using treats. During the summer, when she was still mistrustful, surly and too often prone to bite, I had an idea: I should try rewarding her good behavior. This worked! Here is what I did: If she allowed me to pet her without trying to bite, she got a treat. After only a few treats, she caught on. A few days later, she had progressed to letting me run my hand down her back (still for a treat). Within three weeks, she was permitting ear rubs, chin scratches, affectionate tugs on her tail, and belly rubs. (This reward method -- I call it "bribery" -- led to the behavior mentioned in the previous post: "She enjoys being petted".) Now, after only a few months, bribes are no longer necessary for petting. Ruby greets both of us with a happy chirp and raises her head to be stroked. She no longer runs when I approach her; instead, she stretches out on the floor for a belly rub. However, we still need to work on picking her up. Usually, she lets me move her to a sunny spot without protesting. However, she is not happy with being held or cuddled. It's time to get out the treats and go to work, to find out if she might actually like being held. BTW, I've tried doling out treats to both cats whenever I've found them in peaceful proximity. Unfortunately, they've never made the connection between peaceful co-existence and treats.

2014-10-30 Looking back at this history of Ruby, I saw something I'd forgotten to add. In October 2013, when we first brought Ruby home, she didn't respond to her name. To teach our new little kitty her name, we used the name A LOT and talked to her many times every day. After a few months, she came to recognize her name. She now answers to "Ruby" and to various permutations of her name: Rubeleh, Rube, Rubella (our daughter's nickname for her, haha), and (my favorite) Ruby-Ruby-Rubeleh. In yesterday's entry, I forgot to mention that nowadays, not only does Ruby greet me with a sweet little chirrup, she immediately follows it with a great big rumbling purr! Also, for the past two weeks, Shmulik has stopped bullying her when she jumps onto my bed at night. He used to chase her off the bed using a strange tactic: he walked across the bed to stand right in front of her and stare into her face until she growled, backed away, and jumped down. My admonishing him to "Be nice!" is working very well.

2015-01-30 In late December, I "inherited" a ten-year old black and white neutered domestic longhair from a friend who entered a nursing home. The new cat, Beanie, is enormous at 19 pounds, but fortunately, he is very wimpy. He seems satisfied to be on the bottom of our cat hierarchy. Shmulik and Ruby do not like him, but the three of them coexist peacefully.

2015-06-23 In April, I took Ruby to the groomer. She couldn't keeping up with the shedding of her thick fur coat, which had grown dull and full of dandruff. (She was healthy otherwise.) Ruby had never let me brush her -- other than to touch a small brush lightly to her face -- and she was not about to change her mind. The Groomery in Gaithersburg did a wonderful job, restoring the glossy sheen to her fur. Taking Ruby there had an unexpected side benefit: it effected an immediate change in her behavior. She acted as though I had "rescued" her from this unfamiliar place, and right away, she was much more trusting and more friendly. Last week I noticed that her fur was shedding badly again, so I picked up a brush ... and she let me groom her! I could scarcely believe it. Since then, I have brushed her lovingly and carefully several times, with evident enjoyment on her part. I can also put my arms around her and rest my head against her, and she purrs. I have been WOOING RUBY for a year and a half, and it is working.

2015-09-02 Happy second anniversary to Ruby! We are pleased that she has been our dear little "fur baby" for two years. Ruby is slowly growing more openly affectionate. Now she purrs most of the time whenever I pick her up. Two weeks ago, Ruby went to the vet fir her annual checkup. She sat still for the physical exam but growled the entire time. The veterinary technician wrapped her carefully in a towel so that only her head stuck out (a "purrito"), and then she and the veterinarian took Ruby in back for bloodwork. Fireworks ensued! They were back quickly, and the vet said, "This is not happening today." She gave me a calming medicine (Gabapentin) for Ruby, to be administered before her next visits. Ruby is going back soon for bloodwork, and then again for teeth cleaning.

2016-09-11 Happy third anniversary to Ruby in her forever home with us! She is our dear little fur baby. Ruby is now openly affectionate. She greets us with a happy chirrup, and she enjoys being petted and payed with. After much effort, I have convinced her that getting brushed is a good thing! Another milestone she achieved is unbelievable: Ruby looks forward to her twice-daily eye drops! During the past year, she had to see a veterinary ophthalmologist, who diagnosed her chronic eye infections as being due to "dry eye" (concurring with our regular vet). However, he prescribed different eye drops to treat the problem. For a while, Ruby's eye had to be treated five times a day with three different eye medications. This increased schedule caused a problem: Ruby started running and hiding at medication time! I had been putting drops in her eye; turning away to get the treats bottle and opening it; and turning back to give her some treats. This method was obviously not working. I rethought the procedure and decided to speed it up. The old method had a lapse of 15-30 seconds between eye drops and treats. The new method was to shake the treats bottle, open it, and set it beside her; medicate her eye; and give her some treats. This worked like magic! Now whenever I shake the bottle, Ruby jumps on the bed or the nearest chair to get her medicine and treats.
2017-02-17 The unthinkable has happened: two days ago, Ruby went to the vet to have her teeth cleaned. While under anesthesia, Ruby died. Bloodwork done two weeks earlier showed that she was healthy and could undergo teeth cleaning. A checkup before the procedure showed no abnormalities. The vet said that for the first ten minutes, everything went well as expected, but then suddenly, Ruby's gums went from pink to purple and her lungs filled with fluid. The veterinary team worked on her for an hour, but then Ruby passed away. My heart is broken. I miss Ruby more than I can say. I loved her so much, and she loved me, too, and I could not have done one thing more to show her how much I treasured her company. A friend took me to the vet's office, and we brought Ruby home and buried her in the backyard. I still expect to see her in her favorite sunning spots, or to feel her paw on my knee while I'm working, asking me to stop a moment and pay attention to her. Little baby doll, I can't believe that you are gone.

12/27/2015...Happy Holidays to everyone! Tomorrow will be our 1year anniversary of adopting our magnificent Meezer Purr-Cee P.!!! How quickly this year has passed! It seems like such a short while since we were bringing him to his "furrever" home! Time surely flies when you're happy & having fun! Purr-Cee P. continues to be such a sweet, precious, gentle soul. He is all we have ever dreamed of and hoped for in a kitty. He is happy and spoiled rotten! He is a pleasure every single minute of every day. I am so thankful to all who helped us bring this sweet sweet boy into our home and our hearts! I will forever be grateful to SCRC, Beth, Jennifer, and the marvelous Meezer Express for making this adoption possible. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Happy 2016! May you all be happy, healthy, successful, & Meezer merry! Cheers....Sharon & Purr-Cee P. Reynolds 🐱

8/25/2015...As we get ready to celebrate our 8 month anniversary with our precious Purr-Cee P., it is a bittersweet time. A
year ago today we lost our beloved Meezer boy Eli to cancer. He was a wonderful, sweet, fun loving seal boy, who died way too soon. However, after having Eli, we knew that we MUST have another siamese! Luckily I found SCRC, which lead to the adoption of this most wonderful cat we call Purr-Cee P.! I had such an empty place in my heart and was so very sad. Purr-Cee P. has filled my life with such joy and happiness, he is an incredible, sweet, loving little fellow. He has not replaced Eli, but has has made his own very special in my life and my heart. He brings our entire family such joy and happiness every minute of every single day. I cannot believe it has been 8 months since we met Meezer Express and brought this fantastic boy home to be a member of our family, though it's hard to remember life without him! He is everything we had hoped and prayed for and more! I thank SCRC, Jennifer ( foster Meowmy), Beth ( interviewer), and all the wonderful people who made this adoption possible. Purr-Cee P. is the perfect kitty for our family. He's a happy, healthy, well adjusted, spoiled rotten, lap sitting, amazing, loving, purring, precious boy! He has wrapped his little paws around our hearts and we love him more every day! ( If it's possible!) Thanks again to all. Sharon & Purr-Cee P .Reynolds

6/29/2015...Hello to all at Siamese Cat Rescue! Yesterday we celebrated our 6 month anniversary with our fantastic little meezer boy, Purr-Cee P.!!! It seems like only yesterday that we met Meezer Express in WV to bring him to his forever home, but then again, I can't remember life without this most wonderful, precious, sweet boy! I had an email from our interviewer Beth, saying that the "honeymoon period" was probably now over, and wondering if there were any problems or behavioral issues, or naughty problems, with which we may need help. ( So very sweet & thoughtful of SCR to offer these services) However, we have NO problems with Purr-Cee P. at all!!! He is the perfect kitty! His purpose in life is to give his family all of his love! I have had many cats, & loved them all. But, Purr-Cee P. is the sweetest I have ever had the pleasure of calling mine! He is a master lap sitter, champion head butter, and fantastic at "biscuit making"!!! He has really come into his "own", since he became a member of our family. He now is a big "talker" (with a very sweet soft voice), loves watching tv, likes watching the birds & deck creatures, drinks water from the faucet, and knows exactly how to wrap us around his little paws!!! I sometimes wonder how I was so very fortunate to become the Meowmy to this wonderful kitty! He has excellent litter box habits, scratches only on his scratching posts, and is very sweet and loving. The only problem he has is deciding which lap he will curl up on! He is a delight each and every day. I am forever thankful and grateful to SCR for making Purr-Cee P. a member of our family. I believe so strongly in this rescue organization, that I am now a volunteer! I am on the Meezer Express list, and am soon becoming an interviewer! I hope to help others find their sweet furry babies, just like Beth, Jennifer, and all of the other wonderful people helped me! My sincere thanks to all at SCR, we will send more updates soon. We enjoy every single minute of every day with him, can't wait to see what comes next!.
Sincerely, Sharon Reynolds & Purr-Cee P. (Who is purring loudly on my lap) 🐱 😍😳🐈


3/28/2015...Hello to everyone at Siamese Cat Rescue! Today is our 3 month anniversary with our precious Purr-Cee P. ! We love him more with each and every passing day! It seems as if he's been a part of our family forever! He loves his home, his family, and life in general! Purr-Cee P. is such an easy going sweet soul. He is the purrfect little fellow. He fills each and every day with fun and so much love. We are so very thankful to have him in our family and our lives! We will be forever grateful to everyone at Siamese Cat Rescue for this most wonderful cat! He is on my lap as I am sending this update! He sends his sweet meows and purrs to all! Our love, Sharon & Purr-Cee P. Reynolds

Hello to all of our "meezer" friends! Purr-Cee P. has been with us for a little over a month now. What a wonderful, sweet, precious fellow he is! He has become a very happy, well adjusted, and VERY loved member of the Reynolds family! This has been one of the most wonderful experiences our family has had! The entire adoption process with Siamese Cat Rescue was fantastic from beginning to end! Purr-Cee P. has adjusted much much quicker than we ever expected or hoped for! He has won over everyone he has met, including our vet! During his wellness exam he happily sat in Dr. Kennedy's arms, and was such a good boy! I was so very proud! We have had problems with our computer, thus, I cannot download pics at this time. We are getting our new computer soon, and I will be posting new ones very soon. We only have about 100+!!! A huge thank you to all who helped us get this wonderful kitty. We are all head over hills in love with him! He is learning how to play with toys, and LOVES catnip! Everyday is a new adventure filled with happiness and love! We'll send new updates soon. Until then much love and purrs to all! Sharon Reynolds & Purr-Cee P.

Oops!!! My Meowmy sent my update on her "smartphone", and it re-spelled her words! She meant she was head over HEELS over me!!! Or, maybe hills too! I also send a special rub, purr, & kitty kiss to my wonderful Foster Mom Jennifer! Thank you for doing such a great job with me, and for helping me get to my new Meowmy and furever home! I will always remember you and love you! Purr-Cee P. (Pistachio) Reynolds =^..^=

2/15/2017-Hello and Happy belated Valentine's Day to all our "Meezer" family and friends! Sorry we are late in sending our update,the holidays flew by during our 2nd anniversary! Purr-Cee P. is the most wonderful, precious, spoiled rotten kitty! He is the center of our family! We all adore this sweet sweet fellow! He is a happy, well adjusted,, very loving, lap kitty. He is everything we ever dreamed of. He loves his family, his home, and life in general. He has had some skin allergies, but, is under the care of Dr. Amy Randall (a wonderful animal allergist from Oregon)! Dr. Randall travels to NC once a month and sees patients. She has helped him so very much. He was allergic to several trees and shrubs (even though he is a totally indoor kitty). He had a serum made especially for his particular allergies, that he took twice a day by mouth. It has done the trick! No more prednisone or steroids! If anyone is having trouble with their kitty and allergies, I highly recommend seeing an animal allergist! It makes for a very happy "non-itchy" kitty! As I said, we adore this magnificent Meezer, Purr-Cee P. We cannot imagine life without him. We are forever grateful to SCRC for bringing this fantastic feline into our hearts and lives. Thanks especially to Foster Mom Jennifer and Interviewer Beth for all that you did to make this adoption happen. He is the BEST!! He has wrapped his precious paws around our hearts...we are in love! Meowingly yours, Sharon Reynolds and Purr-Cee P.😻

SASSY
Aren't I cute
Notes from Home
I can't believe it's been a year already! Sassy is growing into a wonderful adult and has got a big personality. She loves everyone she meets, including her vet. I can't even express the amount of joy she has brought us. She spends most her days making sure that I get up on time, waking me up with the sweetest loud purrs. Then we play before breakfast. Now that she is a little over 1 yrs old she is much sleepier than she was at 6 months. She loves to snuggle, big time. Lay down on the couch for a minute and she will be right there for a nap. There is ofcourse play time after dinner, that is expected and adorable. Her personality is still bright, happy, and outgoing. I will be uploading pictures next. Thank you so much for helping complete our family. <3

This cat is not suitable for children under the age of 5 (ie 5 and over is OK). This is typically a cat that is shy and a child might scare it, or one that has a potential to bite or play too hardNot with kids under 5
This cat will not tolerate being with a female cat. This is usually a female cat.Not with Female Cats

Leia is doing great! She is an absolutely joy! She keeps me on my toes-for sure! She no longer has any use for her bed as she finds mine much roomier. She is totally OBSESSED with strings and playing is mandatory on a daily basis.
She is the sweetest little girl and I'm so very happy she is mine!

It has been six months since Leia and I adopted each other. I am convinced she is child in a cat suit. She is the brightest, funniest, most vocal cat I've ever encountered. She absolutely demands my attention, and it is a joy giving it to her. She sleeps in her bed, uses her scratching post and gives kisses-could I really ask for anything more? I cannot imagine my life without her!
Update: Leia and I have been cohabitating for 4 years now. How time flies! She is just the best most beautiful cat ever! She has been and continues to be such a joy. Anyone who has come into my home has fallen in love with her. Meezers are truly a special breed!

HELEN PURRIN
My owner died and I ended up at the shelter. I have had an exam with the "works" and my blood work looks good. Also had a dental to get rid of some bad teeth so I am feeling good and starting to play. Fine with other kitties.

Notes from Home
O1/26/2017 This is an update on how Helen Purrin-[VA11872] is doing at her new forever home after 5 days.
Helen is doing great so far, showing lots of improvements in record time and interacting with the family members (2 adults, 3 young boys), very talkative making different types of sounds (We need to learn what they means), she is eating very well dry and wet food and treats, She is using the litter box in a regular basis, playing with her toys and jumping to the bed, jumping to the tower to look through the window, She loves being hair brushed.
She is not using yet her round bed we bought from the center, she loves the big bed..lol
Helen loves to play mostly in the mornings and very late at night around 10-11 pm, just before we go to sleep..lol... so we play with her for a while and she gets very happy.
The only pending part is waiting for Helen get out of the bedroom where she is accommodated, she is trying now to go closer to the bedroom door and go back, that's all...we'll see how long it takes.

More updates will be provided.

I will post pictures and a couple of videos of Princess Helen.


02/01/2017: Helen's update:

As today -10 days after Helen arrived- Helen's adaptation progress is going extremely well. She finally decided to get out of the bedroom by herself and performing the most desired event, Going downstairs!!
She did it for three times so far, preferable at nights, looking very nervous with her tail at low position and saying "meow" all the time. Helen was focused on preforming main floor complete recognition. She walked constantly around all the perimeters of any room she found on her way (Kitchen, living room, dining room, family room, entrance lobby and sun room...ufff until she jumped to the kitchen counter and walked for recognition too..hahaha, then after that she jumped to the sofa and went under the sofa. While she was doing all that, i got some pictures on the act that i will share too.
However, she prefers going back to the master-bedroom and spent the most part of the day there playing with us, sleeping on the bed, playing toys, eating, using the litter box, the tower and looking through the window. Actually we decided to leave the door open all the time so she can leave to the other bedrooms upstairs where the boys are.
In regards to the boys, Helen is doing much better interaction with them, she loves when they brush her hair, or playing with her. The boys are also helping providing her dish with food, so she can trust them more and more.
I was confident that she will stay downstairs more time with us after recognizing, but no, she is still afraid to leave the master-bedroom completely.
In summary, we believe that Helen progress is going very well, probably more time is needed for her. Helen is very talkative, very sweet princess and she loves to sleep on my side!! ..The only thing she does not like very much is when i give to her a big hug....looks like she gets mad...haha.

More updates at a later time,
Guadalupe


02/12/2017,
Update on Princess "Helen Purrin": Three weeks after adoption.

Well, it is a pleasure for us to let you know that Helen's adaptation to our home is fantastic!!.. wow, she is a sweet lady that trust very much in all of us in just 3 weeks after she arrived. We are giving to her all our love and attention she needs so that's why her progress has been very positive and quick.
Currently, Helen share lots of her time with us at any location of the house, she got out completely of the master bedroom (only used for her sleep), she goes downstairs to the main floor by herself, she goes to the basement, and she knows all the rooms.
Helen favorite place is the kitchen!!..haha...smell good...haha.
Helen loves to wake up us early in the morning around 6 am, jump to the bed and lick our faces and a typical meow meow!!
She love her toys and enjoys a lot when any of us play with her.
She also loves to watch TV with us, she got possession of the small chair to look at everyone.
So, because the house is big, we got a second litter-box for downstairs and Helen is very smart, she began to use it right away as soon she identified the new box and place... no problem with that, she is very clean and covers everything.
This coming week she will have a veterinary visit for evaluation.

I just uploaded 5 new pictures.... More updates coming later.
Thank you,
Guadalupe Figueroa

UPDATE FOR HELEN PURRIN WELLNESS VISIT:

Helen was taken to visit the veterinary doctor for her first wellness evaluation after adoption.
Basically she is doing very well except a couple of findings:

1. During the otoscopic exam it was found that internal ears were filled with lots of black debris, so a sample was taken to microscopic exam and results came up with bacteria that are being treated with antibiotics. Fortunately, result was negative for Ear Mites that is a known severe issue in cats.
Doctor performed deep ear cleaning with a solution and gave a prescription of Tresaderm, so we need to put few drops in the morning and nights at Helen's ears. A follow up will be in two weeks.

2. Doctor found redness around the eyes and prescribed antibiotic Lysine Gel to be mixed with the wet food in the morning and nights.

3.Doctor recommendation was the use of drug REVOLUTION to be applied once a month at the skin to prevent fleas, ear mites, heartworm disease, hookworms and roundworms.

4. Helen's weight was 11.8 lbs.

In general, Helen behaved well during transportation and at the vet clinic., just lots of meow meoww..

Helen continues to bond more and more with all of us, sharing more time with us and follow us everywhere.
She still show little nervous with some type of noises, we think that will be gone after some time.
Helen does complain a lot when taken for medicine on the ears, oh boy!!... she doesn't like that!!
She also complains a lot when trying to put a harness, still can not be done, she makes lots of noises....maybe at later time.

That's all for now.... more updated soon.

Thank you.

GUADALUPE
