Super sized, super sweet, super nice kitty!

Need a teddy bear to hug? Want a total sweet kitty who will be devoted to you and your family? Here's your cat.

I just decided to let mom know I LOVE doggies, too. Fine with other cats unless they are crazy youngsters and not well-mannered.

Foster mom says: Very faithful companion. Doesn't knock things off shelves but does like to explore the upper levels of cat trees and 'hang out' from there. Really great cat!

6/17/14 - I've had Luki for 7 years, as of yesterday & he is still just as sweet, beautiful and lovable as he was the day I brought him home. He is still on diabetic food only and gets insulin 2X per day, but he has lost weight and is doing very well. I have to take him to the vet a couple of times a year for a glucose tolerance test. He was just there 3 weeks ago and we had to increase his insulin slightly, but otherwise, he was healthy. He is such a good boy & is such a wonderful companion and he clearly adores me. He follows me around the house and still sleeps on the bed with me every night. I'm going to upload new pictures.

4/14/15 - Luki is, thankfully, still doing very well. He had a glucose curve a month ago, and we didn't have to increase his insulin at all. He gets more lovable and sweet the older he gets! He will be going to the vet on 4/27 for his annual shots and he is usually a very good boy when he goes.

Hard to believe he's over 12 years old now. His vet visit in April went well. He's still such a sweet boy and was so good at the vet. Everyone there loves him.

Luki is doing well now. He had some problems earlier this year, but we went to the vet several times and he is better now.
He is still very sweet and loving, still sleeps with me every night. He even knows what time we generally go to bed and "reminds" me when it's time. He is still on insulin for diabetes, but it seems to be well controlled. He is the best company and I'm still so happy to have him.

4/19/17 Luki went to the vet today for his check-up & shots. Vet says he is doing well. For unknown reasons, he now seems to hate going to the vet. He yowled, spit & snarled the entire time we were there. The Vet said he may just be getting crabbier as he gets older. Guess that happens to the best of us. He's still my constant companion & isn't crabby all the time. 😂

Foster Notes

Hi there,

I've been here for four months and would love to be home for my sweet 16...if not before. I long for a nice calm place to enjoy. I could live with another laidback, easy going cat or two just fine. I don't need anyone to boss me around, chase me through the house, or try any shenanigans with me.

My healthy is purrfect and I am well past the kitten stage now so you can keep the lacy curtains up and fancy rugs out. I know what's important in life too like you and me under the mistletoe. Wait - that season is over. How about you and me with hot candy kisses? Just keep thinking of you and me...me and you.

Love, Ashley Marie
Notes from Home
It's been over a year since Ashley joined our home and we are happier and noisier because of it! She lives on our bed during the day when we are out and sleeps on the heated bathroom floor during chilly nights. She loves to purr and sit on my lap when I am not near Maisie the puppy. Alas Maisie and Ashley have never bonded. I speculate this is in part to her being declawed in the front so she can't swipe a paw and show who is boss. Life is good though since we have an invisible fence in the house which prevents the dog from accessing the upstairs. Ashley takes her food on the stairs while the dog watches and she roams free if she wants during the evenings when the dog is in her crate.

The big social news for Ashley is that she is completely bonded with our eldest daughter. When she is home from school Ashley can be found parading around her room, sitting on her bed and purring extra loudly. When she goes back to school Ashley roams in and out of her room meowing at a high volume.

Thanks to Siri's suggestion, Ashely is now taking meds for her Thyroid. We were concerned she might have kidney problems masked by the thyroid but so far so good. Our vet thinks she is in great shape considering her age and believes we will have her for many years to come. We are a lucky family to have found such a wonderful old lady. Thank you to all who cared for her and transported her to bring us together.

This cat will not tolerate being with a female cat. This is usually a female cat.Not with Female Cats


Notes from Home
Tomorrow (5/16/15) will be Sassy’s four-week anniversary as a member of our family and she is settling in nicely, albeit with some valleys to go with the hills.

On 5/12/15, Sass had her wellness visit with her new vet and she is in great shape. She was a perfect patient during the visit, received her rabies shot, and will return in a year for her annual check-up.

In 25 years of having Siamese cats in our lives, Sassy is the only cat to come to us as an adult (she turned five on May 1) and we were not sure how this would affect her initial adjustment. We’ve found that the only discernable difference is in accepting (or not) a periodic claw trim. The cats who started life with us as kittens, quickly grew accustomed to a skillful (if I do say so, myself) claw clip but so far, I’ve had to bide my time (hopefully to when she’s dozing), then clip a single claw (not always possible), then wait until the next opportunity.

In other areas, Sass has come along very well, eating (she’s switched herself to dry-only Wilderness duck), drinking appropriate amounts of water, using her two litter boxes and her hundred-and-two scratching posts. She sleeps in our bed almost every night, for at least part of the night, as she wishes. Strangely, she is not partial to any of a variety of cat beds (fleece, Millie, ‘other’), preferring to doze either on our bed or on a carpeted floor. We’re fairly certain that eventually, when she is no longer at all nervous about anything in her surroundings, she’ll enjoy sleeping on our living room sofa and may even decide to give one or another of the beds a second try. She has also stayed away from the tall, multi-cradle cat tree but here, again, we’re fairly confident that one day, when her environment is no long scary in any way, we will find her ensconced there. Our other cats loved the tree so much that they tried to climb up while we were removing the wrapping! Sassy has done a bit of lap-sitting but was too nervous to pursue it. From Day One, she’s enjoyed lots and lots of looking out of windows and in the last few days, has shown a continuing interest in a variety of toys, mainly catnip mice and other toy hapless creatures, which she disembowels, dominates, and carries from room to room in her mouth. Until yesterday, no toy interested her in the slightest. Progress!

She is becoming more and more relaxed with me, frequently coming to me when I offer my hand to sniff or even call her name; head-butting and winding herself around my legs. She welcomes attention from me, purring as I hold her head and even stretches out for the occasional tummy rub. She is far less social with David (who always had a fine relationship with our other cats) and more often than not, runs for cover when he comes near. We doubt that Sassy was ever ‘abused,’ but we suspect that she had a frightening encounter with a male at some time in her past. This, too, will pass – eventually. Meanwhile, David continues to talk to her, pat her when permitted, and generally act as though he knows all’s well between them.

Pictures to follow (when I learn how to upload them).

A day over six weeks with us and Sassy’s making wonderful progress in settling in – baby steps but lots of them.

Our bedroom, which started out being home base, is now just one base of several for her and she’s more and more at ease as she trots into various rooms, finds a window to look out of, a food bowl to snack from with water as a chaser, a scratching board to work with, or -- as of just three days ago -- a tall cat tree with three commodious cradles at different levels. In the past few weeks, we saw her noticing it (and perhaps recognizing it for what it is) but not yet nearly brave enough to do more than sharpen her claws on the sisal/carpet portions of its ‘trunk,’ at floor level. We never pressured her to go further and a few nights ago, there she was, in the lowest cradle, sniffing it hesitantly, then standing on it, and finally, gingerly settling down and staying there for an hour or more, changing positions on and off but obviously comfortable. It’s now a regular part of her day and we’re waiting for her to discover the higher cradles which all our previous (now ‘late’) cats loved.

Sass is increasingly social with me and, especially if I show her her brush, will come trotting over for brushing, head-holding, and tummy-rubbing (and of course, lots of talk from me). The brush isn’t a hard-and-fast requirement and more and more often, when she sees me coming near, she’ll stretch herself into a hugely long kitty, expose her tum and meow or purr for “The Usual,” which I’m always happy to supply. I’m still working on getting those claws trimmed but even this is somewhat easier, although still a ‘one-claw-and-done’ event. By the time I get them all done, it’ll be time to start over again but I can see that she finds the process to be annoying but not terrifying.

And she is coming to see that David is really not very scary at all. She’ll let him walk past her without scampering away, and has taken to coming to him, head- or body-bumping him, then retreating to sit just a few inches off. Very brave; more successful baby steps.

Still not confident about uploading pix so must resort to 'text, only.' As a sidebar to the general subject of pictures, Sass’ one problem in all photos is that because her eyes are somewhat hooded, she comes off looking quite dour and unfriendly. Not at all the case. If only we could tell her to say, ‘Cheese.’

Happy June, everyone!
Sassy's ten-week anniversary with us,this past Saturday, June 27, '15, and she's making steady progress in adjustment. Baby steps but lots and lots of them. She now uses the cat tree regularly (and it took her several weeks to overcome her fear of it). Recently, she's been lumbering up on my lap and settling down there for an hour or more, each evening and also enjoying lounging on the sofa, between David and me. Panics if we pick her up -- so we don't -- but comes over when offered a hand to sniff (to remind her who we are). She loves looking out any open window (secure screens in place on all) and is wild about being brushed! Amazingly, as she lolled on the couch, one evening, last week, I calmly picked up a rear foot and, talking to her the while, clipped all the claws!

She is less 'sassy' than any cat we have ever known and I'm still tempted to change her name to Cookie but she's had two names (that we know of), already ('Ms. Sassy' at the shelter and Siamese Rescue, then, 'Sassy,' with us) and 'Sassy' is now on all her documentation (Siamese Rescue's; her vet's office; Reunite, the microchip data base). The fact that she isn't sassy shouldn't bother me any more than the fact that Vandy, our long-ago, late domestic longhair, wasn't a Vandal.

She has had a recurrence of the chin acne that afflicted her when she came to Siamese Rescue but we contacted our vet as soon as we noticed it and he has prescribed for it.

We are delighted with this pussy cat who has had a rough time of it, watching her gain confidence in her environment and trust in her humans.

Thanks to the huge Siamese Rescue team who brought her to us, in Brookline, Mass. Later in the summer, she'll spend a week with us on Cape Cod.

Finally, some pix to attach, with hopes that I've got the upload process right

More news when there is some.
At six months with us, five year old Sassy’s adjustment continues. Her progress was initially hindered by the necessity of medicating her for the reoccurrence of the feline acne which plagued her when she first came to Siamese Rescue from a public shelter. She was clear at the time we adopted her. As we knew it might, within a month, the problem reappeared and for several months, our vet at Angell Animal Medical Center (the medical arm of MSPCA), treated her, first with Duoxo Spot On, later with Tresaderm. He also had us eliminate as much plastic as possible from her life (changing her water and food bowls to china), and changed her diet to Royal Canin Rabbit and Peas, both moist and dry (she loves both versions). The acne improved but was still present and at our vet’s suggestion, we made an appointment for a consultation with the feline dermatologist at Angell.

Ultimately, the strain of being given meds twice a day, every day was affecting Sass’ adjustment so adversely that we asked whether it would be medically safe to give her prednisone, in the very short term, to allow us to halt the daily medications which were having such a bad effect on her adjustment to life with us -- just until her dermatology appointment, scheduled for six weeks later. (We know how dangerous prednisone is, in the long term.) Our vet prescribed a two-week course of oral prednisone, the last dose of which was given one month before Sass’ dermatology appointment.

At this writing, one month after the last oral prednisone dose, Sass has been clear for quite a while, so clear, in fact, that we re-scheduled her appointment with the dermatologist to December, as she is presently asymptomatic. We know it might return and are prepared to deal with whatever comes.

We have read that stress can be a factor in feline acne. In the weeks since we ceased medicating Sass – with a stressful chase twice a day -- her adjustment has improved to the point where we can almost say that she has begun to blossom, starting to become the cat she was meant to be.

As to her social/emotional adjustment: First and foremost, she has never struck a blow in anger. Initially, when she first came to us, she almost phobic of being picked up – and to this day, I almost never do so, however, on the rare occasions when I do lift her up, she has now come to the point where she will object with her almost inaudible non-Siamese voice but for a few seconds, will refrain from struggling, looking around at the view from the human. After those few seconds have passed, she will not bite or scratch (except accidentally, as she pushes off from my arms) but she will struggle strenuously to get down. As with all other ‘problems,’ we never press her. We see improvement here and it’s now quite obvious that although she continues to dislike being picked up and/or carried, she is no longer terrified. Our attempts at claw-trimming are so stressful for her that we now have the trimming done at a tech appointment at Angell, approximately once a month. Sass behaves perfectly at these sessions. All of our previous cats came to us as kittens and so were totally accustomed to manicures with me.

At the other end of the sociability spectrum, she sometimes sleeps in our bed with us and some evenings, as the two of us sit on the living room sofa, she quite often appears, jumps up and carefully settles down on my lap. At times, she will stretch herself out to her full length, asking for a tummy rub, and she hugely enjoys gentle under-chin and jaw line massages. She gives signs that she wants to socialize and generally feels good about her life with us. Head butts are now routine and we’ll simply follow her lead as we go along.

Sass greatly enjoys looking out of any of the many windows and on occasion seats herself next to a closed Venetian blind. We take the hint and open it for her. She has generally paid little or no attention to any toys, although this has improved somewhat and she has one favorite BFF white mouse which she sometimes carries around with her.

Sadly, after ‘discovering’ the wonderful cat tree in our living room, close to a window, and spending several days enjoying it in June, she hasn’t used the tree in easily four months, a pity, as it provided so much pleasure to our previous cats. As with all other things, we do not press her. It may happen, yet.

We’ve seen slow but definite improvement on all fronts and will continue to let Sass progress at her own pace. She’s our girl and has had a rough time of it. We wish we knew what her pre-shelter life was like but that won’t happen. Somewhere along the way, someone destroyed most of her self-confidence and courage. We want to help her get them back.

Thanks to everyone at SCRC for giving us this wonderful lady with the incredibly soft shiny brown fur.

February 20, 2016:
We celebrated Sass’ ten-month adoption anniversary two days ago, on February 18 and it’s been a memorable ten months, filled with a million baby steps toward becoming the happy, healthy, confident and sociable cat she was meant to be. Sass was a bundle of miscellaneous fears when she came to us and throughout, we’ve proceeded on a ‘Go-Slow’ basis which is paying off beautifully. Within the last two months, especially, she has made wonderful interpersonal progress with both David and me and now spends large portions of most evenings on the living room sofa with us, on my lap, or David’s lap, or in the fleece bed (on the sofa) which she rejected for virtually nine of the ten months that she’s been with us. When she first came to us, she was flat-out terrified of being picked up – so for the most part, we didn’t, while very slowly picking her up on rare occasions for very brief periods (measured in seconds). One day, I picked her up and was astounded to find that, rather than struggle to get away, she purred and rubbed her head against my arms as I held her. The door bell with send her scampering for cover but when our (adult) elder son, Rog, stops by, rather than ring, he calls us when he’s at our door, we open the door for him, with no scary bell (guess telephones don’t count), Sass doesn’t feel compelled to flee, and he greets her as he enters. So far, she has become brave enough to allow him to approach her and give her his hand to sniff. Her acne never completely goes away – and we suspect that it will always be with her to some extent – but she does well on and enjoys her diet of Hill’s z/d and is being well cared for by the feline dermatologist at Angell Animal Medical Center (fka Angell Memorial), the medical arm of MSPCA, in Boston, just ten minutes or so from our home in Brookline. Her General Medicine vet is also in practice there.

Finally, I must report the most terrifying 24 hours we have ever experienced: In our condo’s large parking lot, just about to load Sass’ SCRC carrier (with her in it) into the back of our Honda, to drive to her appointment with her vet, we set the carrier on the ground, preparatory to clearing one last bit of space on the back seat. In a millisecond, the hinge side of the carrier’s grill door came open and the last thing we saw was Sass, in warp drive, running this way and that in the lot in 20º temperature with snow and ice on the ground! In 26 years of cat ownership, we have never, ever lost a cat, as all our cats are indoor-only (as Sass is). An army of friends/neighbors helped in the search; our son, Rog, drove in from his home in the suburbs and he and our dear friend and neighbor-across-the-hall, Linda, must have covered half of Brookline (slight exaggeration) with flyers; we contacted all the appropriate agencies and institutions, and I searched the single-car garages which ring the parking lot, over and over again, in the wee hours and before I left for work, early the next morning. No snow that night but temps in the single digits; the coldest night of the year. Sass has no collar but is microchipped.

WE GOT HER BACK! Linda, who has never owned a cat, suggested (naively, we were sure) that we leave the door to our building’s outer vestibule open and place food, water, and a bed in the vestibule. I told Linda that Sass was an indoor-only cat and surely had no cognitive map which would help her get home from the parking lot, two blocks from our building, having seen the outdoors only through the bars of her carrier. Nevertheless, almost to humor Linda, we did as she suggested. The next morning: nothing The following afternoon, as David and I were sitting in the waiting room of the Honda dealership, waiting for an oil change, my cell phone rang and there was a picture of a cool, calm, and collected Sassy, lounging in the fleece bed in the vestibule of our building. Linda had found her there, a few minutes earlier and brought the bed – with Sass in it – into the secure inner vestibule – and Sass had not shied away from her whom she knew only slightly. Linda’s husband, Richard, came to pick us up from Honda (our own car was still being serviced) and ten minutes later Sass walked into her home and settled down as though she’d never been away. We’ll never know, of course, but we wonder whether she might have been an indoor-outdoor cat in her first five years, before she came to us, and so might have developed some outdoor cognitive mapping skills. We don’t ascribe the happy ending to anything ‘woo-woo’ and just consider ourselves (and Sass) to have been darned lucky. We had offered a $100 reward for Sass’ safe return and, of course Linda would not accept it so sometime soon, David and I will take the four of us out to dinner at Boston’s Top of the Hub, instead.

We have three new pix assuming I can upload them. Apologies if they don't accompany this report; I'll re-learn and include with my next one...

Best to all of you,
Jane and David and Sass

Today is Sass’ two-year anniversary with us and when she first arrived at age five, we determined to give her all the time she needed to grow into her new life. She’s made great progress, greatly accelerated in the past six months. More often than not, she spends part of the night sleeping next to me in bed. In the evenings, she joins me, on my lap or next to me on the sofa, to help me watch TV or read and she’s generally up for tummy rubs and walking on the coffee table. She is not a player with toys and has only occasionally used the tall, commodious cat tree at the living room window (once every six months has been her average, so far). I have hope that she’ll eventually understand what fun it can be to get comfortable in tree’s large cradles (as our other, now late, cats did for decades), to watch the action in our condo’s beautiful front garden, with trees and flowers, people, birds, squirrels, and, yes, some dogs, all doing their respective things. Now that the weather is warming, I open the (screened) windows and she comes running in an instant to jump up on the broad window sill (ignoring the tree!), where she’ll sit or lie for hours, enjoying a sun beam.

One of the most dramatic indicators of her becoming more and more at ease is her willingness to allow me to trim her claws, a total impossibility during her first 18 months here. She’s not crazy about manicures and complains as I talk to her and clip away, but she’s quite obviously no longer afraid of me and submits, knowing that I never, ever hurt her.

During the past year, Sass has continued to have feline acne issues which are now fairly well controlled with a diet (which she mostly enjoys) of Hill’s z/d, both canned and dry.

For several months, she suffered from a serious lesion in her left eye, successfully treated with repeated applications of antibiotic and antiviral medications. Surgery would have been the next step, had not the treatment with medication succeeded. The sight in her left eye may, ultimately, be somewhat diminished but the lesion has healed and not returned. She still has sight in the eye, and never gives any indication that it is bothering her. We are hugely grateful for the skill and compassion of Martin Coster, DVM, her feline ophthalmologist, at MSPCA’s Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston.

My husband, David, has been in increasingly poor health for several years and is now a cancer patient in long-term care at a good nursing facility not far from our home. I’m fortunate to have a fine support group composed of family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers at Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center where I work part-time in a job that I love, editing various documents for the unit. Sass is a key member of my team (indeed, she was a key player in my life, even before David’s illness). She has perfect litter box habits, scratches appropriately, and has never bitten or scratched. She continues to run from anyone but me and I don’t see this changing, except, perhaps in her relationship with my adult sons. No matter; she’s my girl and I’m her human and I sometimes think she senses this very comfortable arrangement. Thanks beyond the telling to SCRC for making all this happen!

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 any other cats in the home. A dog may still be a possibility though.Must be Only Cat
Well, there's good news and there's bad news:

The bad news is that I'm a seal point Diva so.......
I'll need a home with an experienced Siamese owner;
No children or active noisy homes;
My new home should be no more than 2 hours away from my foster
home, as I don't care to travel;
I really don't like other cats, but we might be able to negotiate this;and
I'm bossy and a bit demanding.

The good news is that I'm a seal point Diva so......

I love to be near you and follow you around; sometimes I get under
foot so you'll need to be steady on your feet;
I want to be the center of attention;
I like to chat and purr;
I love to be held, snuggled and cuddled;
I love to sit in your lap;
I love to be brushed and pet, especially my face and ears;
I'm curious and playful, wand toys preferred, no balls please;
I have my own bed, but I like to sit on yours too, especially if you are
in it, and by the way I need lots of room;
I have a serious affection for men.

Is there anything else that you need to know? Click on me and chat with foster mom, she'll fill you in.

PS - did you happen to notice that I am drop-dead gorgeous?

Notes from Home
Name should be changed to Sammie.
All is well.
She is still into everything and VERY affectionate and MORE THAN SMART.
She loves to chase and fetch a ball and bring it back for another throw/catch... over and over again! (part dog, I think).
She charms everyone she meets.
Growing, a lot.
Tried to upload a couple of pics... but got a message saying that records show that I am not the adoptor... will try again... but may be a glitch!
Hope all are well!

So hard to believe that it has been 8 years since I adopted Sammie (on my Father's birthday).
She will be 9 on August 10th (coincidently, the anniversary of my Father's passing).
Not sure if there is meaning there... But, Sammie and I have been a match.

Kiki is a gorgeous seal point lady with medium length fur and penetrating blue eyes.

Now that her kittens are weaned and finding new homes, Kiki is evolving into a more intense and needy girl who craves attention and, while she can interact postitively other cats, may actually also do well as an only in a home where there is constant attention.

She is moderately vocal and will chirp and trill when chatting with her purrson. She has excellent litter box habits and loves to use her scratching posts. She allows her nails to be trimmed and has a sweet and gentle demeanor.

Notes from Home
Indira is the living proof of combined efforts. From the person who placed her in the shelter because they apparently could not keep her to Deirdre who recovered and fostered her from the shelter to Emily who sponsored me and ultimately to Seri's inception for this wonderful Siamese
rescue society that has come to exist today.

Thank you ladies from the bottom of my heart for all your tireless efforts on behalf of these deserving kitties. If it were not for each of you, your combined commitments, all your selfless hours and all your care, our beloved Indira (Sanskrit for Beauty; VA11604) would not be in our heart and home today. She has been a true blessing and we are honored and grateful to be her forever family.

Again, thank you for making our hope a reality.

With sincere gratitude,

Indira Meyer 6 Month Update:

It is hard to know where to begin regarding the last six months since our adoption of Indira (VA11604)

You have asked me to update you concerning her behaviors and so forth.

Indira has been an absolute gift. She is truly a wonderful girl and we love her to her core and unconditionally.

Since day one, she has demonstrated meticulous litter box and scratching post use, eating habits, human and other feline integration skills and grooming routines.

Regarding favorite toys, she has not yet met a laser light or catnip stuffed toy that she doesn't like !

Again, because you specifically asked for a tell all...only on rare occasions, Indira will scratch the sides of upholstered furniture...but in all fairness it is when she is overdue for a "Manicure" ! By the way, she loves her mani/pedi sessions and never puts up a fight during them.

Her only other slightly devious behavior is when she chases her housemate Etta up the stairs! It is all good in good nature on Indira's part , but I'm not sure if Etta would always agree! The good news is this game of chase has lead to weight loss for both girls so its actually a win win situation !!!

Indira has added an immeasurable sense of wholeness, completion and love to our family unit. It is as if she has been with us forever and I believe she feels the same way. As I have said previously, Indira remains living proof of many things and at the six month mark it remains true that the Siamese Rescue Society and all their selfless efforts combined have again...successfully united "a meant to be cat with their meant to be family"

With great gratitude and appreciation,

Pat and Geoff Meyer

Notes from Home
It has been two weeks since we have taken Jesse home. He is a complete joy! At night he sleeps in bed with us and Samson, our dog. During the day I notice him and Sam snuggled up napping. No longer does his heated bed appeal to him. Twice a day he eats 1/3 cup of food and drinks water throughout the day. He really likes covering up in this litter box. In the mornings he and Sam walk down the hall to the kitchen from the bedroom together. It is so cute! Jesse is a busy, busy guy. He will sit in my lap a little and then remember he has a ball or toy that needs flung up in the air. When he does sit on my lap he stretches his front paws to touch my hubby. He loves to be brushed and petted. When I quit petting him, he grabs my hand with both paws and puts it in his mouth. He doesn't bite, just holds it a minute and then licks like crazy. We can't believe he has only been here two weeks. He has fit in perfectly. Jesse was sweet to our 11 year old grandgirls and even licked on them. He head butts and lives on Samson, too. I think he just might be the perfect cat and might be saying Mama! Thank you for sending him to me.
One month: Things are going fantastic. Jesse is a jewel. He and Samson now play tag and sound like a herd of wild horses running through the house. They sleep together, eat side by side, and Jesse sits at the door while the dog runs outside for a potty break. He has learned to back up (reverse) from the door when Sam comes in. Jesse is such a smart boy. He is a beautiful, affectionate, playful, loving, high spirited Siamese who talks to me and believes I understand. It hardly took any transition time for this purrfect guy to fit right into our little family. If I had not listened to JoAnn, I would not have waited for the purrfect match. She is a blessing and Michelle took such good care of Jesse before he came home. Both ladies were so patient with me. Thank you for my sweet boy, Jesse!

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


Notes from Home
Snicker is doing very well. He and Melan are inseperable. He is the most lovable kitten I have ever had.
He get on my lap and snuggles with me every evening and the bathroom has become the family roon because he is on my lap every time.He meets no stranger and when Melan is around I am not needed unless she slaps him and then he comes running up tp me.
I never thought 2 cats could become soo bonded so much.
I;TRY TO SEND A PICTURE AS SOON AS I CAN GET HIM AWAY FROM MELAN. They have such a bust life I may have to make an appointment.
Thanks for everything. I just love the pair of them.
Snickers just loves my son and goes to him ever tine he comes..

Nothing a little love (and dental attention) won't fix! Misplaced by Hurricane Sandy, I'm one in a million (okay really one of two) that are in the program, and I'm just a gem!

Notes from Home
Pongo's new name is Panihaka (Hawaiian for Successor). Panihaka's stomatitis was extensive to include bone loss in the front of the mouth so all of his teeth (including the canines) were removed last week at "The Life Center" in Leesburg, VA. Panihaka is still having a lot of snot issues but we are hoping that they will decrease now that he has less bacteria in his mouth. He is currently on antibiotics (clavimox) and pain killers (today is the last day for the pain killers). He is actually feeling much better now that his teeth have been removed. He can really get a ping pong ball moving in the middle of the night on the hardwood floors. :) We had been hoping that Panihaka would get Torin to start playing again but it turns out that Torin has developed heart problems and shouldn't be playing much anymore. So we are playing with him instead. With all the medications and surgery he is still a little wary of us but he is doing quite well and loves to be scratched of the head and now even the chin.
4/17/17 - Panihaka is a very happy cat but he still has litter box issues. We can not figure out why he insists on using the bathtub rather than a litter box. We have tried many different shaped boxes and many different litters but he still prefers the bathtub. If the tub is occupied, he will use a puppy pad that we placed in the corner of our bedroom after he piddled there once.
Many other things have happened to Panihaka in the last four years. He has befriended several cats in our household and has walked each of them lovingly to the rainbow bridge (Kokoleka, Kalima, Torin and Akoni). After four years of walking cats to the rainbow bridge he has finally decided that people are OK. So now he finally sits in my lap with Nikolaka and they groom each other constantly.

Hi there! My name is Bacall, 'LB' for short. That could stand for Lauren Bacall OR Little Bit!

I have a great whiskey & cigarettes meowwwrrrrllll, and I'm cute and petite at 6 pounds. By the way -- that's me on the right :-)

As you can see, I get along with all kinds of critters - cats, dogs and humans! I'm fully vetted and will be ready to go home in about a week!

Bacall is doing great. She loves to be outside in the screened in gazebo and animal watch. I cannot slip out the door without her. She has every toy I can find and runs through the house like a crazy woman. I could not be happier with my little peanut. And she adores my son Tyler and my mom.My oldest son..not so much. He brought his dog over once and Bacall had a hissy fit...literally. He is the sweetest boy and loves cats but she does not like him even a little. He is a poodle mix about 18 pounds and is now scared of her. Next time I will put her in tbe bedroom. Hoping she comes around . The dog only visits about 2 times a month for a few hours. She does have allergies...I have to wipe tbe pollen from her coat and face or she sneezes. Pollen is horrible right now. Thank you so much for my baby girl....I love her sooooooo much!!!!!!

This cat will not tolerate any other cats in the home. A dog may still be a possibility though.Must be Only Cat
Looking for a lap cat? I'm your guy! I'm a great big bundle of handsome snuggles just waiting to happen! I'm also the king of head bumps. Once we got it established that I am the most important member of the household, I decided to get along with the dog, although I'm not particularly fond of other cats. I come to my name, and like to talk with you--I'm just an all-around Prince Charming.
Added bonus: I like to be picked up and carried, and I'm so heavy (14+ pounds!) you'll get a great workout from lifting me!
Notes from Home
Fuzzy is doing wonderfully in his new forever home! He has really come into his own and I can tell he feels at home here. He loves being picked up and petted. In fact, he is quite smart at knowing exactly how to get that from both me and my husband. For me, he just comes to me and lifts up one paw, for my husband, as he knows he doesn't like picking Fuzzy up, he throws himself to the floor and rolls on his back to be petted. He is a mature fellow, so he likes to relax most of the time, but I can find him in the mood every now and then to play with his feather toys. He loves to jump on his cat tree in the morning and enjoy the sun. He also has found his favorite place to curl up in his bed by the heater!
