DERBY
I had my own home for 16 years and then my mom had to go to a nursing home and couldn't take me with her. I'm calm and laid back, and after meowmy takes me for my blood work I'll move to adopt me. She said once we know what kind of shape I'm in, she'll be able to tell you all more.

Meowmy said I look fantastic for an older gentleman, so maybe I'm as healthy on the inside as I look on the outside, and will have many years left.

Update: the good news is that I'm not in Renal failure and my thryoid is good. The bad news is that my white count is up, indicating I have an infection somewhere. I'm on meds right now and after they are finished, the doc will check it again. Hopefully it's coming from my bad teeth and is fixable.

Update: Just an infection that was cleared up with antibiotics. Had my dental and am looking and feeling like a young fella again!

Purrs,

Paco

5/7/2016 - Paco and his people are home safe and sound. He is a fabulous boy. He ate as soon as we got him settled in his room. He is rubbing and purring like crazy. He's also a talker. Thank you everyone at SCRC for the work you do. Siri it was awesome to meet you and see the center today. I'll post again soon.

12/15/2016 - Sorry I have not posted in a long time. Got into a major auto accident in June and 2weeks ago in hospital with DVT & PEs. It's been a trying year since adopting Paco. Enough about me... I know you are more interested in Paco. First news is Paco's new name is Derby, since we adopted him on Derby day. He has adjusted really well to being in our home. He loves his brothers and they play all the time. Derby, Bentley and Little chase each other through the house like crazy nuts. It is the cutest thing to watch. He is like a kitten playing when he does that. Our vet thinks he is more around 11yo than 16yo based on looking at his eyes. I don't care. He is awesome. One of his favorite spots is at the foot of my bed or on the back of the couch by the heat. Derby enjoyed Thanksgiving, especially since he got chicken breast for breakfast. He is loving and purrs all the time. He is a wonderful addition to our family. Thank you from the Staibs to everyone at SCRC for helping us find Derby. We love him and he loves us. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year to everyone from Derby and the Staibs. Derby hopes all is well with his SCRC family. I will post pictures of him shortly.

5/8/2017 - Well It is Derby's one year anniversary with us. I can't believe it has been so short a time he has been with us. It feels like he has been ours forever. He is awesome. He has found where he likes to sleep and is downstairs on the back of the sofa when we are downstairs. He is in my room or on my bed all night or during the day. He purrs constantly and loves attention. When you pick him up and hold him he doesn't fight you, but is quite talkative. He loves his brothers. They chase each other around the house playing. We are all going to the vet for the yearly check up 5/16/2017. He is so cute and makes us smile every day. He seems very happy and content in our family. He really likes his catnip toys and is always willing to help me when I am working on a project around the house. There was a point after getting him that he decided my bed was the litter box for urine only. We had testing done and nothing was wrong medically. So it was behavioral. It was only my bed. Lucky me. He is now taking a very low dose of Prozac and doing very well. He takes his medicine in a pill pocket and loves it like a treat. He is doing very well overall and we love him to pieces.

MAISY
Well I am back. I had a terrific home, loved all the kids, but the littlest one was so allergic to me he kept getting very sick. So with heavy hearts I was brought back to rescue. I'm still as sweet as I was when I was here before.

So if you are looking for a gentle, pretty companion to be your only furkid, then I'm the one for you. Foster Meown says I am a super house guest. Please ask about me so I can settle into a home once again, and hopefully this time forever. I come with all my stuff... bed, food dishes, my carrier, and even some toys!

Purringly yours,
Miss Kitty

Notes from Home
We happily celebrated Maisy's 10th birthday. She's such a sweet cat and becomes more snuggly and loving with each day. Every night, she waits for me to get into bed and then hops up to lay in my arm until we fall asleep. It makes having every piece of my clothing covered in cat hair completely worth it. I'm forever grateful that you helped bring us together!

ALLIE
Sweet when she gets to know you, Allie will need a little time to warm up. She adores other cats, so needs a feline companion to help her relax while she gets to know her new humans. Once she does, she is playful, sweet, and just plain lovely. She would be a perfect friend for the kitty who has recently lost and is missing a kitty friend. Will you give her a chance to learn what true love is?

4-22 Amelie f/k/a Allie is a happy cat! She loves her big brother, Fosse, and she has decided I'm not so bad either. 😸 She is affectionate, cheerful and playful. I figured out how to coax her into my lap--eat a porkchop. She didn't stay long but it was a big step for us.

4-26 Amelie is a lovely girl and a joy to have around. She isn't comfortable enough yet to sleep near me, but she loves her pets and ear scratches. She has an awesome purr that seems to be activated by scratching behind her left ear. ;) She and Fosse are very happy together. He's a middle-aged boy, so when he needs his rest, she is more than happy to throw her toys around the house until he is ready to play chase again. :) When I leave for work in the morning, they are always under the bed together waiting for their treats before their morning nap.



5-1
This morning Amelie chirped ay me when she knew I was awake. I called her name and she jumped on the bedfor her morning ear scratches!

5-8-17

Amelie reached another milestone over the weekend--she took a nap with me. I am amazed at how far she has come in just a month. I will post more pictures when I find a way to keep her from getting nose to nose with me every time I try. :)

MISSY
Do you have a home that is not scary? I am the perfect little gal for someone who loves to nurture and is okay with taking things slowly. I am going to pose for some new pictures so I don't look so scared. This B and B isn't so bad. I get treats on my pillow every night.
Notes from Home
Missy is an amazing little girl. She has been with us for 4 days and she has made leaps and bounds. She hasn't come out of her bed to greet me but if I pet her head and run my hand down her back or side I get a large arch. I stop petting, offer my head and tell her it's okay to come on out. She comes out, she will eat in front of me, she has come nose to nose with me 3 times and leaves quickly. She uses her scratching pad while I'm in the room with her. She purrs a storm and does call out to us (or someone) when we are not in the room with her. She is eating moist and kibbles, good use of the liter box. She grooms in front of us and her coat is being to look and feel better. She is still frightened but has made huge steps. We are so pleased with her and her progress. I can't wait for the day she strolls around the house like a boss!!


7.2.16: Six days with us...Missy is very sweet and seems to enjoy company. She is always a little startled then will offer kisses. I have been sleeping with her but it doesn't appear either of us get much rest. She eats often, has walked over me on two different occasions. She still enjoys pets with elevated rump and high arches. When she thinks I'm asleep she sniffs all around my face, hair, arms knees and feet. Her very long whiskers tickle but it makes me happy she has interest to do so. Ron layed with her yesterday, head positioned elevated in her bed and arm wrapped around her backside. She eventually scooted closer until her head was under his and she pushed as hard/close she could and fell deep asleep. We have to drape a cover as a canapy over her bed or she searches (and usually) finds away under the bed. We are hoping this time all access to under the bed has been blocked. So far she has been better at finding a way in then we have to block it. Seal Point 3/ humans 0. She is a sweet soul who is resilient, a true Seal personality but she doesn't like to be alone at night. If she is alone she cries until someone joins her. She is very quiet during the day.

July 5, 2016. So much progress. This sweet girl wants so much to be loved and to have company. I had to restart this because she decided she wanted to groom herself off the bed and on the floor. Then she kept looking at me so I patted the bed and called her. I meowed several times then she chirped and jump right up next to me rubbing affectionately. She walked across my lap several times then flopped (yesss flopped by me) and hasn't stopped touching me since. Big time grooming with at least one paw on my leg at all times. Currently she has all four paws pressed tight against me. She enjoys being combed, lets me rub her paws and belly. She just fell asleep with 4 paws on my leg and her nose almost touching. She has met our boys, she is very interested in Romeo our 9 yr old. She is intimidating towards Max our 8 month old kitten. No true aggression, we now let the boys come in the room with us as a family when we spend time with Miss. I have slept in the room with her the last couple of nights. She rests now rather than stand on watch. She now looks out the windows instead of hiding from them and the light. She has started playing with me and just tonight lost herself in the game. Attacking and pouncing on the string. She is sweet inside and out and we love her. We are so proud of her progress. I tell her daily that she is not a scaredy cat but one of the bravest girls I know. She is, someone harmed this precious child and it took great courage to trust again. Siri, Dorcey and Julie thank you for allowing this precious soul to grace our home.

7.8.16-Vet meet and greet. Missy must be happy as she gained a 1 1/2 pounds since she came to live with us. She is now a whooping 7 lbs. Vet visit went great although when we carried Missy out of our house (in the carrier) she cried the most heart wrenching meow that it brought tears to my eyes. She quivered the entire ride over and of course was very frightened. After the exam, she returned to the carrier and calmed right down. She knew she was coming home!
She is in great condition and Todd looked at her eyes carefully and told us they eyeball was great and the redness was from the herpes virus. Good news there. She is back in her favorite bed right now grooming herself. She is home, she knows she is home and she is happy! :)

July 20,2016-24 days with us and this brave keeps growing stronger. She comes to the kitchen and eats with the boys. Her liter box is now at the other end of the house in the laundry room. She sleeps with us every night. She and Romeo are working and making small steps forward. Max our kitten likes to play and pounces on her. She's not really enjoying this and usually a stern look sends Max scampering. She's still frightened of loud noises, helicopters, airplanes and thunderstorms. She strolls throughout the house and gazes out the windows in almost bewilderment. She enjoys the light now and sunshine. She doesn't hang with us in the living room but is slowly getting closer. She hangs about 10 feet away but she's out with us and not hiding in "her" room. She meows now and just this morning at 4 am she got the most vocal so far. She almost bellowed. She's small, very petite,sweet and loving. She's still fragile but I know one day she will regain that Meezer strength. She comes to me when I call her, she loves to be petted, whispered to and head kisses. Haven't broken through the being carried but I'm treading very slowly on that as I don't want her to doubt the trust she placed in us. Still waiting on a head it! I love the picture I took of her this morning, little Missy at the large sliding doors. She confidently walked through the living room to those doors, gazed out then upwards to the sky. It makes us so joyful she isn't living in a cage anymore💗

8.3.16- What a little treasure she is and our family dynamics keep changing. :) Missy wants to be friends with Romeo (9 yrs) but he flees like he just saw the devil. Max (9 mos) wants Missy and she hisses and bats until he sulks away but I think that is manly because he plays rough like a boy and she probably simply feels attacked. He is now afraid of her but keeps trying anyway. Relentless little critter, I think he will eventually break through and she will realize he just wants to play and run around We are working on that with yum yums (aka whipped cream treat that all three eat together in a close circle). They get a quarter sized squirt and all three come running when I shake the can. :D Missy still sleeps at the foot of he bed but plays footsie with us all night long. She spends more time in the rooms we are in, has finally jumped up on the couch and likes to hang with us there. She still has issues with being picked up but I pick her up several times a day for a very short period and softly put her down. She is getting calmer about being carried especially if I softly talk to her or kiss her on the head. I set her on my lap and she absolutely whimpered the first time so obvious there have been unpleasant experiences in someone's lap. I now pick her up daily and sit with her in my lap. She at first left immediately but now she stays for a minute or so. We continually reinforce the good experiences of being touched and held. She's going to be an awesome loving lap cat one day. I just know it! We just love her and are so amazed and proud of her progress.
9.21.2016 "I am Missy! I am smart. I am beautiful. I am special and I am loved. The those who captured me, tortured me, abused me and caged me for three years, Kiss My Grits! I'm in a real forever home and I discovered today that I really like lying in the sunshine. I love my peeps and am working on loving my bothers. I am somebody! I am special.

5.7.17 Missy checking in... Well I really love my home my Mom was sure I'd be snuggling in her lap and with my brothers by now but nope, I will take my time thank you very much! LOL, that is my little rescue girl. Occasionally she politely asks to come into my lap but it's usually just a walk over. She loves for me to lay on the floor with her and have 1-1 quiet or play time. She sleeps sometimes on the bed or on the couch at the foot of the bed. If I get up at night she jumps right down and follows me around. She especially love quiet 1-1 affection late a night when the house is dark. She nibbles my toes, fingers and kisses my nose. She is still frightened of loud noises and men. She is much better with Dad and lets him pet her but panics if I'm holding her and he approaches. We are slowly working on that. Easter bunny brought a new cat tree so there is actually a picture of the three of them together. Missy, is the beauty in the middle of course. We love her and constantly reinforces the safe place our home is. There is extremely slow movement in friending the boys. I keep trying. ...bottom line is she's a precious sweetheart and it's our goal for her to totally be a peace and be happy.

Notes from Home
Hamish has turned out to be quite the character. We were looking for a playmate for our 6 month old boy (Wallace) who politely was not messing too much with the old lady cats in the house. I could see that he needed a companion closer to his age. Hamish came in ready to play and hasn't stopped for more than a breath since. He is half the size of Wallace still but is always asking to wrestle and chase and nibble. He is very confident and adventuresome. He doesn't always think out his escape plan. He has a knack for getting into the food closet. If there's a moment of quite its worth taking a peek in there for him. He is very amusing and always seems happy. We enjoy him very much and it seems like he and Wallace will be inseparable.
I think he's going to be tall compared to my other cats. He seems quite leggy at this stage. He's growing fast so I guess we will see :)

5/7/2017
Hamish is still doing very well. He is still pretty non-stop. it is a rare moment when he will cuddle. We enjoy watching his antics so much and find him so entertaining.

MAILI
I've been here a while and had an adoption pending, which fell through, through no fault of my own.. I've had a rough time of it, but have healed up nicely and ready to go. In the time I've been here I bonded to Milton, so we're paired up to go home together. I'm loving, but on the shy side and need him to help me be brave. He is loving and friendly once he's comfortable with someone.

Ask about us and maybe we can be your new furkids!

Purrs,
Gina
Notes from Home
So excited. MaiLi finally got in my lap last night! She has really started to come out of her shell. She even went so far as to run big brother Loki off his food dish. He tolerates them doing pretty much anything. They sound like herds of wild animals running around.

MaiLi has turned into the most amazing cat! She is the smartest I've ever seen. She plays catch with the ropes she got in her adoption bag. She runs to the door to great any of her humans when they come home and loves to be scratched all over. She plays with both brothers and is absolutely the queen of this house. I don't know how I ever lived without multiple cats, they are the loves of my life.

I can't believe we've had Zane for 3 years. He is the first boy cat I ever had and he is perfect. So good and sweet and loves to play. He wakes us up in the morning with his constant talking. It is the cutest thing and I love hearing his voice. When my husband works nights, Zane lays right beside me, protecting me and never leaving me alone. Zane loves his friend Shyla and both siamese snowshoes lay next to each other or with me. Love my Zane and so thankful I found him and adopted him from Siamese Rescue

SIMEE
Oh, boy, foster mom says with this picture you're never going to believe that I need socialization and that I have a very strong instinct to hide! Can I help it if it felt good to be petted? I'm pretty good at mugging for the camera as long as foster mom sits perfectly still. Once she moves, I get all nervous and have to find a safe spot to hide. What's there to hide about, you say? Well, at the car dealership where I was born last October, my kitty mom taught me that there is plenty to be wary of. I've been living outside all of my young life and surviving was the name of the game.

But now I'm finding a warm spot to lay and food to eat anytime I want. And foster mom's hands sure do feel good after I decide not to be afraid. She thinks I'll be just fine with other cats and a calm household. I'm not sure about dogs yet. She'll let you know on that one. I'm going to take a lot of patience, understanding and firm but kind hands to learn that things inside with humans are OK. Do you have lots of time and patience to help a young, handsome guy learn what life's all about?

Love, Simee

Notes from Home
Wow, Hard to believe it has been 9 yrs already. Simee and Bandito (Our two recue boys) are still best pals and absolute love bugs.
Simee is still a little shy. It's just an inherent part of his personality but using a whole lot of patients and loving kindness has really brought him out of his shell. He has a very close relationship with me but also loves our other family members as well. (He does still hide from them sometimes but usually not with me) We give him the space he needs to feel comfortable.
On a sad note....Last August our 20 yr old female tabby rescue named Gabby died. Both of the boys showed visable signs of sadness and depression over her loss. It's never easy to lose one of your fur-babies.
One of the coolest new developments for Simee has been him learning to do some tricks on demand for treats like Bandito. He now gives paw for treats and stands up tall with his paws on my leg to be picked up. Now if I can teach him the complicated roll over trick that I taught Bandito we will really have our Siamese circus act...lol.
Simee is doing very well on his special food for his urinary tract issue. Over all both boys are very happy, playful, and healthy.....knock wood.
All the best to our friends at the VA Siamese Cat Rescue,
Kim Dulak and Family
Simee and Bandito too....

ASHER ANGEL
I went home as a kitten, but life changed. Husband, children, a dog were added. I had some trouble adjusting.

So here I am again, this time looking for a quieter home, one on one I'd be purrfect. Lovely lovely cat, thanks to my first Meowm who loved me dearly! If matched with another cat, no bossy divas or queen bees, I need gentle souls just like me and I'd really like a cat that like me, because I really do like other cats. I'm not an active scratcher, i do need a quiet home.

Six months after his adoption, it seems as if Asher Angel has always lived with us! He likes to lounge in his favorite window seat each morning and watch the neighborhood kids wait for the school bus. He plays ferociously with his wand toys. Asher Angel happily cleans his bowl when he eats. He is impeccable with his litter habits, and has never missed the box. He always uses his appropriate scratchers. He loves being brushed. He is very generous with his cheek rubs and nose kisses. At bedtime he climbs into his Millie Bed, and sleeps soundly through the night. Asher Angel is happy, confident and loving. We cherish him and are so grateful to all the folks at Virginia Siamese Rescue who helped to make our adoption of him possible. Thank You!

SUSU
Mature female Siamese cat looking for a mature human male or female to bond with for the rest of their lives. The human must swear off all other cats as I am looking for a serious person who will be satisfied with one feline relationship. The human considered must understand that I get jealous and need to be spoiled. There can be no one night stands since I have been disappointed before by humans who have left me (death was not a good excuse). Good health is required since the successful human will not have my permission to get sick. The Benefits are; meaningful conversations when you come home from work, company on the sofa while you are watching tv, and sleeping with me at night.
Notes from Home
Susu is adjusting very nicely. She seems to like all members of our family -- not always the case with Siamese cats! She has been playing musical beds lately, deciding, I think, on what she likes best. First the new Millie bed in our room, then in bed with us, and lately the MIllie bed in the studio. She's also much more agile than we expected of a 14+ year old cat. She can jump up on high beds and onto a hip-high shelf in Paw's amoire. Susu shows us her inner kitten, too, playing with my yarn or threads when I am knitting or stitching. She loves to be next to one of us and will cram herself into a small bit of a seat if that is all that's left. It looks uncomfotable to me, but her motor starts running almost immediately, so she's clearly happy!
She has just come in to supervise this update and reminded me to say hello to everyone, especially Foster Meowmy and Pops and their Toby.

Current Status (7 November 2016): Susu has had an eventful two years with us and proudly bears the designation B.C.E.: Best Cat Ever. In June of 2015, she underwent gall bladder surgery to remove a pair of stones. The operation was only partially successful: one stone was removed before the surgeon felt Susu needed to come out from under anesthesia. She had also had a stroke previous to the surgery, but no one recognized that until after her recovery was so slow that the internist took a closer look. After more than a year of recovery, including steroids to prompt appetite and support her liver, Susu is now completely off medicine, has a gorgeous winter coat going on, and is every bit as healthy and active as a 16 1/2 year old ought to be. She snuggles with all of us, loves to be in the same room with whomever is home, and is insistent upon a strict meal schedule. She does NOT like car rides, but after so many trips to the vet and a lengthy stay in the hospital, who can blame her?

May 3, 2017 Susu left us some time during the night. After returning from a wonderful week at the beach, where she ate like a champ (the sea air, you know!), she began to decline, refusing food, sleeping more, and becoming gradually less mobile until she was unable to support herself on her back legs. We had two visits with the vet last week to make sure all was as good as could be and that Susu was comfortable. She continued to interact with us up to the end, even purring as we petted her. Syringe feedings were not her favorite, but she accepted them with good grace, as she did the subcu fluids we gave her. Her last day was filled with cuddles and a visit from Long Tail Girl (Susu's human sister) and supervising Meowmy in the kitchen from her Millie Bed on the counter. 2 1/2 years with the Best Cat Ever is not enough, but we are grateful for the time we had, especially the almost 2 years post-surgery.
