Notes from Home
Henry continues to be happy healthy and very adaptable. He Was never content in our RV so when we travel he stays with our daughter's family...4 kids, 2 cats, and a dog. And he seems to thrive in both our quiet retirement community and their chaotic but loving family home. He has befriended our weekly house cleaner and helps her with all her chores especially the bed making! We thank you again and again for finding this special guy for us.

RA LI
I am a confident, big hunk of loving seal point. Need a lap cat? Need an armful?
Notes from Home
At one month, things are going pretty well!

This past Saturday night we initiated “full Meezer integration,” meaning that we did not keep Ra Li closed up in our guest room overnight. On Sunday morning there were two cats on our bed when we awoke, and it has been that way for the last 2 days as well! Our older female flamer point still hisses at him at times, but they can eat together and be together on the sofa and bed (they are on either side of me as I type)..

Ra Li seems to have a little cold - he has been sneezing. It may be the dryness of our house with our radiator heat; we started up the humidifier last night. His eyes seemed to be a little watery last Friday but I haven’t seen that in the last few days. Otherwise he is eating, drinking and playing!

We think that he may be a Tonkinese, and perhaps younger than initially described - he is a love!

Need a pair of adorable love bugs? Then PICK US !

We are both beautiful and well adjusted kitties who are looking for someone to share our love with. Could that be you?

We lost our home because our mommy got sick. Our world turned upside down and it took us a week here to show our true personalities.

We're curious, playful and loving girls. And we're best buds and really like to be together all the time, whether we're exploring or napping.

We promise to sit still soon for pictures, you can see we like this petting stuff !

Sallie and Suzie are doing great.

We’ve chosen to let them keep their names due to their mature ages.

Their first year with us has been pretty uneventful, except for the two weeks when they were boarded at the veterinarian’s kennel service during our vacation last September. According to the kennel workers, they were upset for only a few hours, but as they were together in one cage, they were fine and eating well.

They’ve had no health issues apart from Suzie’s occasional sniffles. And they once needed ear drops to clear up an inflammation, which quickly went away. Their appetites are quite robust, and they’re always looking forward to their mealtimes (7:30 AM and 5:00 PM).

Suzie is a bit of a diva, while Sallie is very laid-back, but they’re very, very close. They’re always together. We’ve never seen them apart like in different rooms. They love to sit on our laps and cuddle with us under the blanket in bed. They love to sit on top of their kitty condo and look out the window facing the main street. They’re such birdwatchers! When they see a bird, they go crazy and meow loudly. They love to play with their toy-filled kitty board with holes. And they’ve become attached to a Beanie Baby lately and drag it everywhere.

We love them so much, and we’re extremely grateful to have found them. Thank you for approving our adoption application and letting us adopt Sallie and Suzie.

Sallie and Suzie are doing great! No significant health issues. But they kept getting sniffles, drippy eyes and puking so I put them on a high-quality grain-free diet and the symptoms disappeared for good. They love to hang out with us...sleep in bed with us, watch TV together, etc. Their fur feel fantastic, their eyes are bright, and they are just plain adorable! I've posted new photos in Sallie's page! Merry Christmas!

Notes from Home
Eleanor ("Ellie") has much more energy then before. She loves to eat, play and nap all day! She also loves her scratching post.
While we are still giving her eye drops once a day, and cleaning her ears periodically, her eyes and ears are clearing up. Now we can see those big beautiful blue eyes!

September 24th 2015:
Eleanor has quite the lot in life. While she is a very loving and cuddly cat she has chronic health issues. About a year after adopting her it was determined she has allergies to dust and dust mites, as well as food allergies. This is on top of Feline Herpes which causes flare ups and makes her extremely itchy. Two years later I am still trying to manage her symptoms, and while she does get constant care with the vet, and a vet dermatologist you can tell she is constantly uncomfortable. One thing I do worry about is how long she is left home alone while I am at work. I do want to make the rescue aware of this issue as when I adopted her it was believed that she had an ear infection. The vet used kept recommending topical ear treatment. Given that ear and skin on cats is very sensitive this caused issues and was never really THE problem. Only after many vet visits did we figure out part of the issue and have her on Famciclovir for flare ups which helps in cycles. I don't need a follow up, again just letting you know in case other felines come in with similar issues. The allergies and herpes has led to itchiness, and excessive grooming.

December 2016: Feline Herpes and Allergy issues. Sensitive skin. Cannot be vaccinated. Immunological issue result in a bad reaction to vaccines. Last vaccine was distemper and rabies, but DR recommended to not do again. Should be okay as long as other pets receive vaccines and animal does not go outside.

Notes from Home
8/9/10
My moms have been sad for the last little bit because Sappho got real sick and died. I'm feeling a little down, too. Sappho was always good to me--let me nestle with her at night and eat from her plate. She was a wise old meezer who taught me lots about this house when I moved here. Not a nasty bone in her body, that one! Oh, yes, she got kinda cranky at the end, but not so much that it bothered any of us. We miss her calm presence and her affectionate cuddles.

Moms say that no cat will ever replace Sappho cuz she has a special place in all our hearts. But they did tell me that they're looking for another meezer to bring home from SR. I think it'll be nice to have another buddy. Of course Izzie (my little "sister") is still around and so are the members of the canine species, but they got their own things going on. I'm hoping for somebody to mentor. You know what I mean--some new guy I can hang out with, somebody to show the ropes to, somebody to share a bed (and maybe a little food, eh?), somebody to join me in chasing the dogs, hahaha!

(Oops, mom says I "helped" her by deleting the update before this one. It was highlighted on that computer thingy when I jumped up to get some ear scratches. Hey, what can I say! I've got better things to do all day than learn these computers.)

12/13/10: Wow, it's been 2 years already since I came to my furever home?!? No way! Time flies when you're having fun, I guess. Life is pretty good. I get two square meals a day, a warm spot by any window in the house I want, lots of cuddles from my moms, and daily playtime. The only thing to gripe about is my new sibling, Schatzi. He and I still haven't settled into an amicable routine, but you can't blame me for wanting to protect my turf. After all, it took me awhile to get my family set up--I don't want him thinking he can come in and just take their attention away from me! Right now, we have a truce going (actually the moms have separated us, but I like to think I'm in control of the situation and can handle it myself). I think the new guy needs to settle in a bit longer before we attempt this buddy-buddy thing. Anyway, 2 years of being treated like a prince--and my moms assure me the treatment won't stop! Who could complain about that?!

12/16/12--Wow, four year anniversary already! Bodhi is such a great guy...and quite the momma's boy! (See photo of him lounging on my lap.) I've been smitten with him from Day One, and it just increases day in and day out.

12/23/13--Hard to believe we've had Bodhi for 5 years already. He is still a momma's boy--big time. He cannot abide a closed door between us! We moved to a new house this past October. Our previous home was a two-story Cape Cod and this new one is a large rambler. Bodhi seems to be getting more exercise now. He loves to run the full length of the house at top speed, sliding across the wood floor in the family room when he reaches the end, doing a u-turn mid slide and then jumping onto the cat tree. Health-wise he's doing fantastic. We just have to keep an eye on his teeth and gums.

11/2/16: Bodhi will be 10 years old next month (or at least that's the best estimate). Next month is also his adoption anniversary--8 years. He was the first cat we adopted from SCRC and I am still thrilled everyday to have him in my life. Bodhi is gracefully accepting middle age. He's in excellent health (except for those gums which we have to monitor) and still has tons of energy. He races around, from top of the cat tree to the floor, up the stairs, and down again. He also loves to play with the feather wand and his catnip toys. Then, when he's worn out, it's time for a long nap! He is still like velcro with me--won't let me out of his sight.

12/13/16: Eight year anniversary today! Bodhi is still as sweet as ever. He's getting used to his new sister, Maisie. He's taking her presence in stride, though it brings out the Velcro behavior in him. It really is amazing how he relaxed into my arms he'll become. Like butter melting. Which in turn makes my heart melt more for him. He is the sweetest boy. Ever.

Percy has definately changed over this past year. From a shy timid kitten to a Lion with a big heart. He is in charge of the household. Percy lets my children do anything to him. He is a big snuggler and talker. He thinks he is human and breaks in and out of rooms like a bandit using his skill of turning door knobs. Sometimes he's a bully to Mariposa, his favorite playmate.....but she usually sets him straight when she has had enough. Overall sweetie.

MOJO
I'm an outgoing Siamese guy who (as opposed to some) is quite smart. I love to play, interact, and talk, but I'm not overwhelmingly needy, I can do my own thing as well. I'd be great in a family home with older kids, I'm fine with dogs, could tolerate another cat but honestly would prefer to be the only one. I have a gimpy ear which gives me great character but has no long term implications. I'm not only great in the morning, but all day long! Come on, try me out with your breakfast!
Notes from Home
Not even 24 hours with me and he's already running the place. It's as if he's always been here. He has almost completely adjusted to his new home. He is such a jewel, I can't believe no one snapped him up before I did. He may not look like a GQ cover model but he is perfect. Great conversationalist, he follows me everywhere.


12/16/2011
Well we are almost a week together and things are still going well. He purrs constantly. Not following me around quite as much. I think he realizes I'm not going to disappear. He's really great about listening. No backtalk when I tell him no. Not that I have had to do that very often. He must have been a food critic in another life. I've tried several kinds of canned food with him and he's tried to bury 3 different ones. He seems to be a dry food guy. He really preferred the freshly cooked salmon I had for dinner the other night. I bought him a crinkly ball and he loves playing with that. He goes batting it around the dining room and the hallway into the kitchen which sends the runner I have there flying across the floor. He thinks it's great fun to ride on the runner when I'm straightening it back up too. He is very adjusted to life with me and he seems to be very happy. He is an absolute joy to have around.

12/26/2011

Christmas was perfect with Mojo around. We spent Christmas Eve finishing presents. He was happy because that meant I was on the couch most of the day. He has discovered a new game though - let's shred the toilet paper. I'm glad I keep all the bathroom doors closed or I would be out of TP by now! He is the most wonderful guy and I told him Christmas day he was the best present I could have possibly had. My birthday was 12/21 and I got a few birthday gifts - many were cat toys. He's truly enjoying them. He had his meet and greet with the vet on the 23rd and they were very excited to see him. I let him out of the carrier and he walked around the reception area as if he owned the place. I was talking to the office manager and noticed he was gone. She said not to worry he was walking around with Dr. B. (His vet). He has kitty crazies every so often and does enjoy running up and down the stairs from basement to bedrooms. He gets a little nervous when I practice for my dance competition. Guess he can't figure out why I'm in pajamas and high heels with rhinestone buckles. Probably doesn't see the logic in them.

1/06/12

The New Year couldn't have started better with him around. I don't know how many more ways to say what a joy he is. I tell him that every day. He made it through the two days I was at the dance competition like a pro. My neighbor who was cat sitting loved him. He's the star on my Facebook page. Don't have a picture of me in my profile but I have two of him. I'm in my office he's sitting about 6 feet away and I can hear him purring. Sorry had to stop for a moment for scritches, kisses and headbutts. Now if I can only get him to stop shredding the toilet paper.....

5/30/12
I just realized it's been nearly 6 months since an update. I can't believe the time has gone by so fast. He now has a blog named after him (www.mojomambo.blogspot.com )- it's my personal blog but there are occasionally bits about him on there. He is doing very well. He is happy, demanding little bugger when I'm out on the deck and he isn't. I bought a collar and leash for him over the weekend so we're doing a little bit of deck time to see if he can settle on the leash and be out there with me. He has grass to nibble on which sits on the window seat in my kitchen. He's enjoying the front door being open so he can watch the world go by. He is adjusting very well to life as a pampered, spoiled, meezer.

12/17/12

I didn't realize it had been that long since I posted an update. Mojo is doing very well. I started a job in DC 3 weeks ago which means I leave the house at 6 and am not home until 7:30. He is handling it well especially since I was home for nearly 5 months. I make sure we have time together when I get home at night, its a priority. We play a bit but he's happier on my lap purring while I watch TV and knit. He is such a joy but he is a brat as well. Spent far more than I should have on a bird feeder for my deck so that he has a little entertainment during the day. I have informed him his job is to sit by the door to scare away the squirrel but he's far more interested in figuring out a way to have dove for lunch.

07/21/2013

Himself is asleep beside me on the couch on one of his Siamese Rescue blankets while I watch My Cat From Hell. He finds the program quite amusing, mostly because of the behavior of the foolish humans. The host made a comment about cats choosing to sleep places where they feel secure. I realized that Mojo feels very secure because he can happily sleep at the top of the basement stairs. I also realized it had been months since an update. Rough months for me because of my job,the commute and the hours; most of which Mojo has taken in stride. As I am gone 14 hours a day I spend as much time as possible with him when I am home. I start a new job tomorrow, my dream job. Hours won't change very much but he has adjusted well. The dining room is filled with toys to occupy him while I am gone, his favorite though is the balled up aluminum foil which really travels when he bats it down the hall. 18 months into our lives together and things couldn't be better. He is a sweet loving cat and such a joy to be around. Even when he steals my ham sandwich from the dining room table. We had a little discussion about that, don't think it will happen again. Siri was right though, he is best as an only cat. A few weeks ago in the evening. I had the front door open so he could watch the world go by. I was in the kitchen and heard a terrible moan. I thought he was in pain and went flying to the front door only to find him nose to nose through the screen door with another cat. That is the only time he has ever exhibited any aggressive behavior. He met my neighbor's Yorkie/chihuahua mix not too long ago and was very friendly of course he has about 5 pounds on her so I don't think he was too worried. He is well known by my Facebook friends most of whom find his dented ear to be very rakish. He has finally agreed to allow me to trim his toenails, it was a bit of a struggle before. I'm sure the knowledge that he will be getting freeze dried chicken treats at the end of his manicure is a bonus.

12/10/13
Our second anniversary, Mojo's pleased because I am home due to the weather. He is currently yelling at the squirrels on the deck because they have made a mess of the bird feeder. The squirrels don't take him seriously. I'm sure they would feel differently if I allowed him even 10 seconds outside. However, he hates being cold so on a day like this I'm sure he wouldn't stay out for long. He is very content ruling the house. He takes any opportunity to sleep on my legs. He doesn't really snuggle. He doesn't like being under a blanket or wrapped in one, I'm guessing because of his past, but he loves being on top of a fleece blanket. He is healthy, content and I couldn't imagine life without him.

12/10/14
We have had an eventful year - we both now have a forever home. I bought a house in July. Of course I took Mojo's comfort in mind when I was house shopping. Our house has a lot of very sunny windows for his majesty to lounge in and watch the world go by. He even has a window seat. When I finally get around to making the cushions for it then we can both sit there in the afternoons to lounge in the sun and nap. He's happy with the old bedspread that is currently there but it's a little tough on my behind, especially if I have 9 lbs of sleeping cat on my legs. He adjusted to the move well and only really got stressed the last week in the old house and the first week in the new one. He loves the hardwood floors on the main living area and the ground floor. Those aluminum foils balls can really fly. A friend made him a catnip toy in the shape of an eyeball (with retina attached) for Halloween and he is very fond of that as well. He is also pleased that I am getting home 30 minutes earlier now, much less stressed from the drive. Though he's not really sure why the car is in the house now. When I finally got the garage cleaned out and was able to put the car in it the first time I opened the door to the garage and he saw the car and ran back up the stairs close enough that he could still see into the garage but far enough from the big red beast. He is also very fond of sitting on the door to the dishwasher when it is open, I still don't understand that.

12/10/2015
The year started out a bit rocky for Mojo. He went for his annual check-up and the vet suggested a tooth extration for one back tooth. Set it up for MJK Day and the poor guy ended up having 6 teeth extracted. He handled it like a pro and he is so much happier. Sometimes he fusses about trying to chew his food - but if I drop a crispy chow mein noodle on the floor or a tortilla chip, it's gone in a heartbeat so I think it's an act to get sympathy out of me. He runs around the house like a crazy cat playing with all of his toys. He loved Halloween this year, we have a full glass screen door and as I was outside passing out treats the kids were all looking in saying how pretty he was. I even took him out for a meet and greet with a little boy and he was perfect. My neighbors dog loves to run up to the front door to see the kitty - they haven't met face to face yet just through the door. He is the sweetest boy, I can't imagine my life without him. He is happy, content and very pampered.

12/12/16
I am happy to say nothing has changed, he is still spoiled and loved and a junk food junkie when he can get away with it. He still screams bloody murder when I arrive home because he thinks he is getting his dinner, which generally he is. I thought when I bought the electric car I could skunk him and sneak home, I forgot about the garage door opener. He loves going out in the garage when the door is closed to roll on the concrete. It's about all the communing with nature that he gets except for bird watching at the feeders in the front and back. But he's perfectly content to be an indoor kitty. He doesn't even run to the garage as fast now that it's cold.

Taking applications for a full time personal assistant! The qualifications are::
Must know that I am in charge. You must have time to cater to all my needs.
Must not have any small Humans in your life, another human is fine two servants are good but they must have the same qualifications. Must not have any 4 legged creatures in your life. They are beneath me and distracting to you from MY needs. Must understand that I sometimes change my mind. Some days I demand a lap others days I want to play and other I might just want to sit in the cat tree. Some days I want chin and ear rubs sometimes massages. Ok that can change from minute to minute not days but you get my drift you must know what is on my mind. Understand that I am very very smart and I am always right. So if you meet ALL those qualifications ASK about me.

This Saturday will be our one-month anniversary with Pippa. It's been an amazing and wonderful month. Because of Pippa's history as a fearful cat, we were hoping that she might be allowing us to pet her by now. Well, hold onto your hats, because she was in my lap at the end of the very first day!

When we first brought her home and let her out of her crate she looked at us and growled (which is what we expected). We left her alone in her designated room for the night and when I went in the next morning, I sat on the floor and just let her approach me. She soon came over and started rubbing against me and purring and wanting chin rubs. I was stunned and very happy. As I said, by that evening, she jumped into my lap.

Each day is better than the next - we have done everything gently and on her terms and it has paid off a thousand-fold! She spends an inordinate amount of time in my lap each day. If she's not in my lap - she's curled next to me. The best part is that she has become more and more relaxed. She now kneads with her paws, stretches her legs out, and finally gives a huge sigh. That sigh really gets me. To me it's her way of saying "I've finally come home." And she has.

Well, four months have flown by and both my husband and I wonder each day how we ever lived without Pippa. She has turned out to be something of a one-person cat and I am the main object of her affection and I have to confess that secretly I am delighted. Fortunately, my husband is a generous man and enjoys the attention she does bestow upon him from time to time and more importantly we both just enjoy her presence and find her wildly entertaining. We are both so happy knowing that she feels completely at home with us - so safe and so secure. She merrily plays, shows us her belly, tries to give us love bites (which I can't seem to cure her of) and follows me around like a little dog. Apparently going to the bathroom with me and watching me put on my make-up and then get dressed is EXTREMELY fascinating! She also climbs into my lap or snuggles next to me every day and then sleeps either on me or near me at night. All this from a fearful cat - I simply can't describe what it does to our hearts. My husband is away from home and Pippa is such a companion to me. Thank God we adopted her and thank you to everyone who brought her to us. She makes us so happy.

Yesterday was our six-month anniversary with Pippa (we have kept her name). The time has simply flown by and almost every day my husband and I turn to each other and say how grateful we are to have been allowed to adopt her. She is a joy and a comfort. She is frequently my little shadow - except for when she decides to tear around the house chasing imaginary fiends and attacking them and making us laugh uproariously.

As each month goes by, the bond I have with her deepens and I feel her trust me (and others) more and more. She now lets me pick her up more and sometimes dangle her while she is completely relaxed. We have little "love" routines between us where she comes to me and gazes into my eyes, I rub her ears and sing silly songs to her about how beautiful she is. She responds with deep purrs, head rubs and more loving looks.

If I am sad or sick, Pippa knows it and spends extra time with me until I am feeling better. She has been known to come flying from another room to leap onto my chest and lick my face if she hears me crying.

Somehow when I heard about this cat, I wanted her and felt she was for me and I for her. Obviously, I was right to trust that instinct.

Well, it's been one whole year so they suggested that I write this update instead of Mommy or Other Guy, so here I am to tell you about my life. I just LOVE my life! I am just so darn happy! I love both my parents, but I really, really, really love my Mommy. When she stays home with me I just can't get enough of her. I want to be by her side and crawl into her lap ALL THE TIME! Of course, since I am SO beautiful and fascinating and sweet she wants to be with me as much as I want to be with her. I even sit on the edge of the bathtub and watch her take her bath. The only thing that upsets me is when Mommy is sick or when she sneezes. This really worries me and I have to take extra good care of her when she does that. Mommy and I spend a lot of time talking to each other, and "Other Guy" and I talk, too. He's really nice, but I don't want his lap. Mommy says I am very "sensitive" so I guess I am. I know when people are sad. I always know if Mommy or her other daughter are sad and our next door neighbor lost his son and came to our house and even though I had never met him before and I'm usually a little shy with strangers, I went right up to him and tried to comfort him because I could sense how sad he was. I want to live with Mommy and Other Guy forever and they say I can. It's good to be happy and be loved. Even more than that I love having people to love.

Pippa

Sweet, 3 1/2 year old tortie show shoe. Likes dogs and other cats. Soft as a bunny, and a non-stop purring machine.

Does it get any better than this? I think not!

We love Marbles. She is the sweetest, more fearless little cat. She is with us always and even hangs out with the housekeepers. They have figured out the way to her heart is through treats. She loves them too and is totally unafraid of the vacuum. Thank you Siamese rescue for saving this little girl.


11/20/13 It has been a year since I started the adoption process and ending up with my Marbles. She is the love of my life and I am so glad to have her. She has put a damper on my travels as I do not like to leave her. I am officially a crazy cat lady. She loves me to chase her around the house. I always wonder if she would like a fur buddy as she likes to play. She travels between Florida and Virginia twice a year with no problem. She is uber loving and is helping me write this update. Marbles is my first experience with Siamese kitties, she will not be my last. She is a wonderful ambassador for the breed. Thank you Siamese rescue and everyone have a great Thanksgiving!

12/10/14 This marks our 2nd anniversary. It has been a fantastic two years. Marbles remains a wonderful kitty and my constant companion. I often wonder if she would like a kitty friend to play with so if Siamese Rescue has any suggestions let me know. Still not sure how old she is, my vet in Florida thinks she is between 8-12 years old. That only makes me sad because I want to have her with me as long as possible. Hope everyone has a great holiday season. Hugs to all the kitties and everyone at SCRC. p.s. I often wish this section were interactive because I read about adopters who adopt sick or old or hard to place cats. I just want to thank them for what they do too!!

12/12/16 Marbles remains the joy of my life. I love her to pieces. She's officially a snow shoe snow bird. Merry Christmas
