FAWN
Found in a Baltimore County, Maryland shelter. Pretty Seal Point girl with a slightly off front paw. Does not seem to hinder her playing.

At first, a bit unsure of people so first reaction to hands coming at her was to hiss. This changed to purrs as she settled in. When chasing a wand toy she purrs. When she stops she rolls over for pets. Follows me around like a shadow, and winds between my feet. Not for someone unsteady on their feet.

When out of isolation she was ok with other cats and no reaction on seeing dogs. She followed around my 10 year old male cat. I am guessing she would like a buddy to curl up with. She is pretty confident and loves to explore.

At the moment she seems to be more on the gentle side vs the take charge side.

See her videos.

MAX
Sweet, loving boy who likes to be where my person is. Pick me up and carry me around - no problem because I love attention any way I can get it. A gentle giant, that's what they call me here. I've been with Lily since I was a kitten, so we're looking for a place together. If you like a lap warmer I'm your guy, and if there are two laps, Lily will fill one too!

The cats are wonderful and we are so glad to have them as a part of the family. They play and soak up all the sunshine from the windows during the day and sleep with us at night. They LOVE their new food and don't throw up any more other than one post vacuuming stress vomit. Lily has not had any issues with the litter box , we did have to switch them to corn cob litter because I am allergic to the pine shavings and still no accidents. After the vet cleared lily's anal glands she has not done any butt scooting on our carpet. We have also not been feeding any fish, and giving her a probiotic and krill oil per our vets recommendations, and her ears and skin have cleared up dramatically. She has no sign of being yeasty anymore. Both Max and Lily have velvet soft fur like chinchillas now too and neither really shed anymore. We found a grooming mitt if ok with Lily and she will even rub herself on it when we put it on our hand. Both of them love the in home cat sitters we used at thanksgiving and were even playing with the daughter who uses crutches to walk since she has spina bifida. Max lays on us every night as we watch TV before bed and has claimed the whole house as his. Lily spend most of her time in the front bedroom office and living room. They still love the cat tree that came with them but Emily found a great cyber monday deal on a huge 6 ft kitty tree that will be their christmas present and we already have the greenies for their stocking ;) It safe to say they are going to spend the rest of their live being spoiled.

WILLA
A little portly, I'm a sweet gentle souled shy gal who wants a very quiet household with no dogs, kids or other cats. Initially I'm frightened but can be a sweet snuggler if I feel comfortable. The last home was just too scary for me and I was frightened of several things, so I've come back to Siamese Rescue to find a quieter home. One on one would be ideal! If you have some patience, can provide some good scratching materials, and like to sweet talk a kitty and be rewarded with soft purrs and snuggles, I might be the one for you!

Sweet kitty initially greeted me most affectionately and then disappeared for a couple of days. Two weeks later, she is still mostly in hiding, but comes out to eat, drink and use the litter box. When she appears, usually once a day, she is aggressively friendly and hangs around a while to visit. The least little noise sends her scurrying for cover. Still have not been able to catch her to take her to the vet. I admit she is more of a challenge than I anticipated, but one well worth it. Under the terribly frightened exterior is a very sweet cat. She is beautiful and I love her.
After a month we are starting to see some progress. She spends all night pressed into my side and even occasionally shows herself during the day. But the least little disruption still sends her back into hiding.
Late November and she is no longer in hiding. Still painfully shy. She hides at the least little sound, or the appearance of any other human, but out in the room most of the time. Rarely leaves my room except to follow me to the bathroom on occasion. Is Velcroed to me at night. Love her dearly!

Foster Notes

JESSIE
Well, here I am at a new foster house. My first foster took great care of me. I was really sick. So many Siamese Rescue people care about me so much. I love these folks. So I'm over my cold but now I have to get spayed. Meom says it will be the best thing for me. I know I'll be okay because she loves me very much.
I do like to play, I'm just a big kitten myself. Well I feel very young anyway. The food here is so good. I'm feeling stronger everyday. I'm so anxious to find my furever home when I am finished with my veterinary appointment.
Do you have a friend for me to play with? I think I like other kitties. Meom will let you know.
Meom says that you should press the 'How to Adopt' button to find out about me.
I can't wait to meet you! You can show me the new fluffy bed you have for me to sleep in!
Thanks for looking at me. I want to sit on your lap and purr, purr, purr!

24-Nov-2018: Jessie is doing great and has been with us for over 5 years now, Her calcium levels were elevated and she had lost a little weight at her vet visit earlier this year but things seemed normal when she went back for a follow up. If her blood panel looks good this year, she'll need her teeth cleaned. Jessie is a very sweet cat and hasn't nipped at anyone in the last couple of years. She still doesn't like her nails trimmed but loves to be brushed. We love her!

01-Feb-2015: Jessie is doing very well and has gotten comfortable in her home. She's very sweet and always wants to be where we are. The only person she still nips is my husband (although he's her favorite person) because he sometimes doesn't pick up on her body language. Jessie had her annual exam, all is well except she gained a little weight. I scaled back the amount of food the cats are getting and started measuring it instead of just eyeballing the amount. I don't know if she has lost any but I'm pretty sure she hasn't gained more. Jessie is really low maintenance - no bad habits and not overly demanding. She just wants her head rubbed and her meals on time and she's a happy girl.

26-Nov-2013: Jessie has fit into the household pretty well. One of the resident cats still chases her every now and then. It seems like he just wants to play with her but she does not appreciate it and hisses at him. She doesn't seem interested in the other cats and mostly ignores them. She still nips at us for no reason - no reason from our point of view; I'm sure she would say differently :). I can watch her and anticipate when she's going to nip and prevent it but she's definitely not a cat you can just mindlessly pet while you're watching TV. She's not aggressive and the nipping isn't hard or leaving a mark - just weird behavior. She's very friendly and is always wherever the family is (in one the pics, she's sleeping on my mom who is visiting for the weekend). She's quiet and pretty low maintenance; easy to care for. She seems to really like my husband and he's her first choice when she's looking for some pets.

14-Oct-2013: Jessie had her vet visit today; she is up to 7.9 lbs and the vet thinks that is a perfect weight for her. She was also introduced to the resident kitties today. They were together for about an hour or so without incident. I played with the boys with a wand toy and she jumped in to play every now and then. I gave all the cats treats and they all ate them together. :) She is still occasionally doing the nipping thing. I can usually watch her and anticipate when she's going to nip and stop petting her before it happens. Other than that, she’s a great little girl; very sweet and loving and enjoys her play time.

24-Nov-2018: Finnigan is doing great and has been with us for over 5 years now. He had his teeth cleaned last year but other than that, has only needed his annual visits to the vet. We love him! :)

01-Feb-2015: Finnigan is doing well and is a very loved member of the household. He is always into or on top of whatever we're doing. Aside from us having to move him off of games or get him out of the pile of laundry (see pictures), he is a perfect boy; no bad habits and nothing to complain about. Finnigan went for his annual exam a couple of months ago and the only issue is that he had put on a little weight, not too much but the vet recommended he not get any bigger. My daughter still adores him and he is very tolerant of being carried around and hugged and kissed. He is a wonderful boy!

26-Nov-2013: Finnigan is such an awesome boy! He has become my daughters favorite cat and he is often snuggled up with her under a blanket on the couch. He is very playful and likes to play by himself, with the other cats, and with interactive toys. Integration was a little rough at first. He was a bit of a bully to one of the resident kitties but he has backed off and those 2 play together sometimes now (they're both on the cat tree in the picture). As I type this, they're sleeping about 6 inches from each other on the couch. Finnigan is exactly what we were looking for when we submitted our application to Siamese Rescue. :)

14-Oct-2013: Finnigan is doing very well. He is very loving and playful. He purrs pretty much non-stop. He received his final worming on Saturday and received his last dose of ointment for his yeast infection today (infection seems to be gone, I will give his ears a good cleaning tomorrow). I am currently working on integrating Jessie with the resident cats and as she progresses, I will start introducing Finnigan to everyone (so far, they have only played with each other under the door). Finnigan plays a little rough with us so I’m hoping he won’t be too rough for the other kitties. The pictures I uploaded are of him looking out the window into the woods – lots of wildlife for him to see and the other is him playing with a toy – he LOVES to play. He’s such a great boy! 

LUNA
Hi, Luna here. I've been through a lot of changes in living situations lately, and that has me a bit nervous. I'm looking for a quiet home with one or more cats and some humans who will be patient with me while I get to know them. I promise I'm worth it! Please ask about me today

Luna is doing well. She spends most of her time under the bed. I talked with her several times yesterday on the floor looking under the bed. She came out last night for lots of loving and stayed out for some time. She ate right away after I arrived home. She peed several times and had a bowel movement today. This afternoon she came out again for some loving and is eating very well. I think she needs plenty of time to get use to the environment. I have an appointment next Friday with my Vet for a check up. I love her and she is adorable. She is a very petite little girl. Very sweet. I intent to give her all the time she needs to feel comfortable before introducing her to Sunny. This morning at 5 AM they were having a conversation through the bedroom door. Sunny is new to the home but has been here for a month. He will be 11 months old next week. He is very gentle. I feel confident when they do get together that they will be fine. He is a little more confident that Luna and I think it will help her. Once she is comfortable I intend to takie a picture and send an update for you to see. :thanks all for your support for Luna to get to her new forever home..

It is a week today and everything is going well. Luna is doing wonderful. I sleep with her part of most nights. I moved her from one bedroom today to my bedroom so she has more exposure to another area in my home. She eats well and plays well. She loves looking out the window and playing with her toys. I am so blessed.

It is Thursday of the second week and Luna is doing excellent. I am taking her tomorrow to my Vet for a check-up. I will update again over the weekend. I haven't introduced the Luna and Sunny and don't intend to for at least another week. I still have her in my bedroom. I plan to put Sunny in the back bedroom where Luna spent her first week and let Luna explore the rest of the house over the weekend in Sunny's absence. I watched a Jackson Galaxy video about putting the food bowls on each side of the closed doors so they associate something good with the spell while eating. I have been doing feeding them all week like this. I did put Luna's mitt that I brushed her with outside her room too. I think Luna will be fine as she was always with other cats. Sunny was alone so this is why I am being cautious and making a slow introduction I think in the end it will all work out well.

It is already the 10th of November, sorry for being late with the news. Luna's trip to the Vet was non-eventful. She pasted everything with flying colors. She is doing well. I haven't let her roam freely yet as I am taking my time.. I did let her out a few times for a short while this past week but Sunny is still growling a little so I don't want her scared. I continue to feed them by the door where Luna is staying. Luna is in my bedroom so I am with her the entire evening and off/on throughout the day. The past few evenings, Sunny puts his paws under the door and they play around a bit. I am borrowing a Pet cage from a friend that has several ledges to perch and is about 4 feet high. I am going to put Luna in it downstairs for a period each day. Then put Sunny in it and let Luna roam around and see if this helps with the introduction. This will not be until mid-week next week. I will let you know how things work out. I feel confident that they will be comfortable with each other with some tender loving care and patience.

SASHA B
Happy home, happy cat - then somebody sneezed, somebody else said that
horrible "ALLERGIES" word and plop! there I was in a cold steel cage at
the shelter. A ladylike, lovebug lapcat like me, in a cage - outdoors
- in October! Lucky for me a shelter angel hooked me up with Siamese
Rescue so I get another chance to show off my sweet disposition and
calm, elegant ways. I'm 98.9% bluepoint with the sweetest little frosting
of gold dust next to my nose - must have gotten that way from so many
whisker kisses and chin bumps! I was sooooo sad at the shelter, Foster
Mom thought I'd come out all depressed but as soon as I looked out of my
carrier and saw I was in a real House again I turned my purrbox on
"High" and I haven't turned it off since. A House still isn't a Home,
though - how about you, is there a Home with you for me? Just please -
don't sneeze!

UPDATE: I caught a nasty cold at the shelter and I'm finally well! I've also met the local cats and dog and I seem to get along very well. I'm ready to come to your house now.

Notes from Home
Sasha is a very laid-back kitty. She sleeps with me every night and snuggles up, although she is not a lap kitty and dislikes being held. She is hot as the blazes too, since she has long fur and needs daily combing. She has a pleasant personality but has become more reclusive with time - she is not as social with strangers as she originally was. Very scared of thunder. She tolerates Grayson's attention for a while but eventually tires of him and swats him away. Her favorite thing in the world is a running faucet - she sits in the sink and cries for it to be turned on. She likes the water and gets it all over herself, both drinking and swatting it around.

Her 2nd favorite thing are cardboard boxes. She shreds them to bits (although there are plenty of scratching posts around), and then chases the little pieces all over the house. Great cat fun.

Oct 2013: Sasha is large and in charge. Well, large anyway. Very large.

11/6/18: Sasha went to her final rest today, at age 15 1/2. She had been battling various medical issues for a few years, none of them too bad but the combined effect basically wore her down in the end, to 6 lbs. She was a good-natured cat, didn't love the other cats but lived for me to come upstairs at the end of the day, every day. She was glued to my side all night, and she owned the whole bed. She had a heated cat bed which she hogged from the other cats. Her two favorite things were a dripping faucet (every sink in the house) and going out in the garage to get spiderwebs on her whiskers. She had a super thick undercoat and needed a lot of combing, which fortunately she enjoyed. I will miss her.

WYLIE
I'm really not blue at all - after a bout with a long drawn out cold, I am now better and out with all the other cats (couldn't care less about ages and sexes, I blend in anywhere) and am solely in search of a loving lap. I have zero bad habits - I'm not a big scratcher, I'm fine in the litterbox, I'm fine with my food, and while I had a hard time getting over my cold simply because I was so very sad at having to be caged for so long and at having lost my home, I am now 100% affectionate kissy lap loving purring machine cat.

Notes from Home
Wylie is the most people-centric Siamese I've ever owned. She absolutely loves people - she runs to the door when someone arrives, to see who it is and to check them out. She isn't afraid of anyone or anything, even the vacuum or hairdryer. Otherwise, she is the Queen Diva of the household and doesn't want to socialize with the other kitties (her subjects).

Wylie is very playful for an older girl and is very energetic. She also has a tremendous appetite for such a petite girlie and I have to keep her from bullying the others away from their food bowls. She wakes me up every morning at dawn (yes, including weekends) by licking my face until I get up and feed her. Siri was not kidding when she told me that Wylie "eats like a pig". She has a remarkable personality and I feel very lucky to have found her.

Oct 2013: Wylie is 16 and still going strong. Getting a little slower but not much - can still jump on counters and the bed without too much effort. Such a sweetheart. Still has quite the appetite and will let me know when I'm late with the nuggets, but losing some hearing and can't always tell when I'm clanking the bowls around for dinner. Love this cat.

2/13/15: Wylie has passed over the Rainbow Bridge due to complications from kidney disease. Mostly it was the severe anemia which weakened her so much. She was a wonderful wonderful cat, my first from SRC. She was sent to the pound at age 7, and I want to thank Siri for not giving up on her and giving her an entire second 10-year life with me. She was far and away the friendliest cat I've ever had.

Note: I updated this several years ago but Wylie is still marked as being "with us" on my status. Please update.

Ching here! Whoa, did I luck out! I can’t tell you much about my former family, except they did have me declawed, but no one looked after my ear issues leaving me looking like a cross between a Scottish Fold and Bluepoint! My new meowmy decided to rename from Blue to something a little more distinguished- Ching! She and my daddy love me to pieces, no question about that! I have boundless energy and couldn’t wait to meet my new sister, Cocoa Chanel, a Lilac Snowshoe several years older than me. I was hoping she’d be a cougar and like younger men, but she turned out to be what you’d call a female dog! Oh well, I’m still working on winning her over and show her my belly at every hiss. Now she doesn’t mind playing with me a bit since we have so many toys and she allows me to sleep on the bed…at the foot end, of course, but my meowmy lets me sleep in her arms anytime I want. I pretty much made this my new home and never leave my family’s side...this is the life!

Has it really been 6 months?! Seems like Ching has been part of our family forever! It took about a month after isolation and integration for Cocoa Chanel to accept him, but now they are good friends. She's a diva and gives love on her own terms, so while they aren't closely bonded, they sleep next to one another and groom each other. Ching pefers his humans and though he's marked as "needy", he's not needy enough for me...I can't get enough of him and we love him to pieces! Now with the warmer weather, he loves to spend time in our screened in patio following the sun and watching the wildlife.

It's been a whole year!We can say Ching loves every season...basking by the heat vents in winter and spending time in our screened in porch (the catio!) spring, summer ,and fall checking out all of the birds and squirrels. For a senior cat, he sure runs up and down the stairs at lightening speed- 3 at a time. He is the love of our lives!

HOLLY
I love attention and especially being petted with scratches under the chin. To learn more click on me.

Notes from Home
Holly is such a sweetie! We are getting along fine, and I'm in love with her already. She is social and likes attention, although not TOO much petting - and definitely not two hands at once. That seems too much like she's going to be grabbed, I imagine. And she is very averse to being held or picked up. I've learned to walk slowly and not make sudden moves or create loud noises. She is very sensitive to these actions and goes scurrying under the bed when she is alarmed. My bedroom is still her living place of choice, but she is spending much more time out from under the bed on her cat tree or curled in her red fleece cubby. I do leave the bedroom door ajar now, and she is fine with that. She has explored the rest of the house and prefers to do that on her own - at night when its dark outside. As soon as I come out to see what she's doing, she will scurry back into the bedroom.

Each day gets a little better for her, although the trip to my vet last week set her back a bit. She sleeps on the bed with me at night and has started to cuddle closer, getting right up next to my legs. The other morning before it was light, she was playing with something on the bed! It sounded like she was chasing her tail. I hesitated to roll over and look at her because that might have distracted her from her fun.

I reassure her all the time that she will never have to move again, that I love her, will keep her safe, and do my best to make sure she is a happy kitty.

4/23/18 - Six Month Anniversary Update for Holly! Happy day! I love this sweet kitty, and I think she loves me, too. She has come a long way in six months, although she is still happiest and most comfortable in my bedroom - her safe place. When I'm gone all day or have been out of town, she is VERY glad to see me, so I know she has connected with me as I have with her.

Holly is not much for playing, although she did wear herself out one night chasing a live mouse around my bedroom and bathroom. She didn't catch it, but the next day she must have worn the mouse out, because I found him and easily caught him and put him outside. (She had lost interest at that point!) Sometimes she'll play with the wand toy or bat around a catnip stuffed toy, but she loses interest quickly. Mostly she likes to curl up in her soft bed on the window ledge in my bedroom. I've seen her watching birds out the living room window, making little chirps at them. And she likes to watch birds that get close to her bedroom window.

I'm on the third litter box, and thought I found the perfect one to help her keep the litter INSIDE the box. It's 11" tall and good sized as well - 14" x 17". The opening for her to walk in is 6" wide, and she manages to scoop a whole pile of litter out that 6" opening onto the floor. Not all the time, but it happens. So, that's just the way she uses her litter box! I'm resigned to sweep up daily. She's worth it, as she is so low maintenance in every other way. I'm used to having to hide every piece of ribbon, string, sticky or shiny paper from my last cats who loved to chew these things. Holly could care less, and she doesn't jump on the counters or any high places except her tall cat tree or my bed.

We're getting along great, and I am so pleased to have her in my life. I tell her all the time that we are good for each other. I think she agrees. : >

November, 2018 - I didn't see a notice of our one year anniversary, but Holly and I celebrated anyway! The year has gone by quickly, and Holly has gotten much more comfortable - and a bit more brave. She is still skittish and startles easily, hides under the bed when the doorbell rings, and runs if I move too quickly. Overall, though, she is much more secure than a year ago.

Her litter box habits are still very good, although she still scoops litter outside of her box on a fairly regular basis. She had her annual vet checkup and got a good report, although when the vet weighted her she said Holly must be enjoying her new home because she had gained a bit of weight. I've cut down on the amount of food I give her now and she usually eats every bit of kibble I give her. She doesn't eat treats or have any interest in people food, so I just have to monitor the amount of kibble she gets. I think she could use more exercise, but she has little interest in toys or her feather wand. She did catch a live mouse when I was on vacation - left it on the floor right by my side of the bed. I bet she was very proud!

Holly spends much of her time in my bedroom still, although she likes to explore the rest of the house after I go to bed. She will start out sleeping with me but disappears at some point in the night. She will also sleep on her cat tree in the living room when I'm in the kitchen (where I spend a lot of my time), although she won't stay in the kitchen with me. She will pass through, scurrying a bit.

At our one year anniversary I'll say that we're both very happy. Holly shows me that she misses me when I'm gone for several hours or a vacation. I love her just the way she is and do all that I can to let her know how much I care for her and try to assure her that she is safe and secure - and won't ever have to move again.
