DARBY
Oh, goodness, what's a girl to do? I got returned after 10 years - (moving). I came in with my buddy Harley but he's gone to his forever home already. So I'm just hanging around waiting to see who is going to be my rescue angel!

I get along fine with all the residents here at the foster home. I love to get brushed and like to sit close to the humans around here. I'm really not fussy at all.

I'm what you'd call a 'dilute tortie' - I think I'm pretty and so does everybody else who has seen me in person.

If you're a senior (we seem to have lots of those in Florida) and worried about getting a youngster, you might want to check me out. We could spend our golden years together!

Hi Donna (Darby’s Foster mom) and the rest of the Siamese Rescue Family . . .

Thought I give everyone an update on how Darby is doing after 6 months with us . . . she really is quite precious and we love her. However, Rajah, our old man of 18 has yet to accept her completely into the fold. Most of the time they just ignore each other but occasionally there is a hiss or growl from one of them . . . it’s hard to tell from which as they're usually out of sight if not out of earshot. Understandable, as Rajah had us to himself for over a year after one by one, his 3 friends with whom he had lived all his life, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge . . . happily all from old age rather than illness.

As suggested by both Donna and our vet, when Darby first arrived we kept her separated from Rajah for just over a week. Fortunately this was easy to do as our apartment has this crazy layout . . . a pocket door in the bedroom, opens to a long closet/dressing area which leads to the master bath. Closing off the bedroom gave her a fair amount of living space and we were able to set her up in her own space with a tray for her food and water bowls, a scratching post and her litter box. She also had her choice of several kitty beds, two in the long closet and one in the linen closet to which she could/would retreat for privacy when we were in the “dressing" area or bathroom.

For most of Darby's “isolation” period, that was her world but occasionally we would close the bedroom door to the rest of the apartment and leave the pocket door open. That way she could expand her horizons and take in Rajah’s scent in the bedroom as he slept with us at night.

Well, one day when the main bedroom door was open, Darby decided she’d had enough of this isolation and put an end to it by somehow sliding the pocket door open. Imagine our surprise, and Rajah’s, when she suddenly appeared in the living room! Although we put her back in her area after her “great escape”, it was useless to try to confine her any longer as she knew the way and just continued to open the pocket door.

From then on, we could only leave them to their own devices which seems to have worked and they now are coexisting in a reasonable friendly state. Fortunately, Rajah has continued to be my husband’s lap cat as Darby has yet to become a cuddlier . . . although yesterday for the first time she did let Dwight pick her up and hold her for almost 5 minutes . . . a real milestone so there still is hope.

In the meantime, she is most loving in her own way which is to purr loudly and bump our legs for attention demanding we pet her and scratch behind her ears. When ignored, she’ll get our attention with a tiny nip to our bare legs. She’s even begun to let us scratch her back above her tail . . . an area we’d been cautioned to avoid. However, although we were told she loved to be brushed, she shies away whenever we try. The one thing she doesn’t shy away from is food . . . she has a most voracious appetite, never turning down kitty food as you’ll see in the first clip! Although it looks as though she left some food behind, she always goes back a few minutes to lick the bowl clean.

We definitely love our new family member and are grateful to have been able to give her a “furever home”.

Regards,

Angela & Dwight
Darby’s Parents

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 is either scared or, or has had bad experiences with dogs.Not with Dogs
TANSIE
Doesn't your nice boy cat need a people shy companion? I could show him how to toss my little stuffed animals, take naps with him, tell him how handsome he is, and not be an attention hog.

Notes from Home
Tansie is eating well, using the litter bin and having fun even if it is without me. I was well informed so the fact that she is a ninja-kitty is not a shock. She is very active at night and she is successful in hiding except when she wakes me up :) Last night at around 3 AM I awakened to the sound of scratching. Otis was sleeping soundly in the top level of the older kitty condo in my bedroom while Tansie was on the level just below having a good stretch and a good scratch on the center pole. Unfortunately she must have sensed I was no longer asleep , probably because of a change in my breathing pattern-so she turned her head, noticed me and flew out of the room. You might wonder why she was in my bedroom when I was supposed to confine her to one room till she was more settled. Well, last week I woke up when I heard her crying next door. It was one of those middle of the night things and I made the mistake of opening the door to see if she was OK. She bolted, and only Otis can find her. I can hear them playing a lot, no hissing at all, but if I show up, Tansie makes sure she is hidden. Next week she has a vet appointment so if she hasn't come around by then I may have to do a room by room search and seal till I can get her for the carrier. Also I bought a new carrier that should make her feel more secure and is safer. Talk to you guys later.June
=========================================================================
One Month Update
Tansie has settled in. She is very much a night kitty and about a half hour to an hour after I go to bed she will be scampering down the hall over and over in an attempt to get Otis to get off his :"lillypad" and join her in play. If that doesn't work (and often it doesn't), she will come into my bedroom, jump onto the lower level of whatever cat tree or condo his highness is perched on and start to poke on one end and pull his ever so plush tail on the other. This will get him going and before you know it they are uphill and down dale. She knows I see her but as long as I don't approach or make sudden moves she is OK with me. If I wait to fill bowels and clean litter till daylight instead of my usual 6 AM or earlier morning routine then she will come out following Otis as if to say "Hey, no sleeping on the job" So I do get some daylight sightings and I talk to her sweetly when she is under my bed and I always know where she is because thank God she is not quiet. I also learned how to make a happy trill ( a friend taught me) so Tansie knows the big cat (me) is happy to see her even if she doesn't yet respond to human language. We are in it for the long haul and as long as she is eating, using the bins and is generally happy, I'll be happy too.

Both Otis and Tansie are doing well. They became best buddies and while Otis is a lap cat, Tansie tolerates me and adores him.

So hard to believe this much time has gone by since both Otis and Tansie were adopted. Otis still has asthma and is carrying too much weight due in part to the steroid injections he has to have every 8 weeks or so. Nevertheless, he has a good quality of life as does Tansie. They both went to the vet today and all is well.

OTIS
I got sprung yesterday but I'm still pretty confused. My momma was elderly and one day she just didn't wake up anymore. She was gentle and quiet, and I miss her more than meows can say. Noone else wanted me, so they took me to momma's Vet where I've been living in a cage for the past month. Belinda (the office manager) took a special liking to me and made sure to put me in the hands of Belinda (my siamese rescue foster mom) so that everything would be okay. So right now the name 'Belinda' is pretty special to me and I get all bouncy and happy when I hear it. Maybe YOU are a Belinda or a Linda or a Melinda or a....

By the way - I'm Otis. One of the meanings of my name is 'one who hears well'. Well, I'm listening and hope I will hear you coming up the steps to get me real soon. And I don't care what your name is....as long as you know how to say "I love you Otis'.

Otis is one happy kittie. Yes, he has to go to the vet every 6 weeks or so to get a shot for his chronic bronchial condition but that doesn't mean his quality of life isn't what it should be. I travel from time to time and my cat sitter stays over at my place with her two female kitties. They get along very well and I think the younger one is attached to Otis. She follows him everywhere, putting her nose in places that alarm him but he takes it pretty well and they all have fun chasing about.

###############################################
Another year has rolled around and both Otis and Tansie are true to form. They will both be getting their yearly shots next week. Both see the vet a couple of times a year and both have a good relationship with the doctor and staff. Tansie never did warm up to her humans but she still loves Otis and is well cared for. We are considering adding a kitten to our family but will have to see if health ( in this case human health) will permit it. Chemo and new kitten is a tricky mix.

ROCKY
I love to play! I have discovered toys and I love them all! I like cuddles too! I purr really loud and make biscuits. I would love to share my toys with a cat buddy.

Would you like for me to share my purrs and toys with you too?

10/18/2016 - uploaded a picture of Khufu and Rocky.

10/17/2016 - Rocky is doing well. He and Khufu are rough playing a great deal. I've caught them a couple of times sleeping with each other on the couch. Rocky does get along with Tiger, who is the eldest cat in the house. She tolerates him up to a point. He decided to go after her tail and she turned around sooo fast that she scared the crap out of him. He literally jumped back and just looked at her like what did I do look. She just looked at him and walked away. I have to keep him separate from Tiger and Khufu when I feed them due to them being older and on different age on food. Rocky will start to really meow really loud at me, saying "I'm hungry, go downstairs and feed me." I do have a picture of Khufu and Rocky together and I'll upload it when I get home today from work.


Rocky has gone to the Vets last week. He received his last booster shot and they found flea dust. Rocky is on flea drop that last a month. He will receive the next one on October 6th. Other than that, he is great. My vet and staff fell in love with him.

Rocky has seen and met with Tigger and Khufu. He will go up to Tigger's nose and smell. After that he will try to play with Tigger. She just looks at him and walks away. He sometimes continue to bat her hind legs. Sometimes she just ignores him, but a few times she did turn around and hiss at him. He sometimes backs off and other times, he doesn't. Khufu has seen Rocky and he is a little wary of him. He thought Rocky was after him. He ran and then he turned around and realized that no one was chasing him. It will take some time with Khufu. Rocky doesn't seem too interesting in going after him.

We have left the dining room door open about two days and during the day, Rocky stays in the room. When we come home, he is out of the room, playing like there isn't a tomorrow.

01/17/2017 - Sorry, I keep forgetting to let everyone know that Rocky is doing well. He is sleeping more with Khufu and once in a while he will sleep with Tigger. Tigger is keeping him in line with the rough playing. She will let him know when she had enough of his antics. Rocky and Khufu seem to love playing rough. Those two chase each other all over the house. Sometimes I think I have three human kids running around with all their running, jumping, etc.

This was Rocky's first Christmas and he didn't climb the real tree. YEAH!!! Unfortunately, the old lady, Tigger, decided to climb it when we first got it. Rocky did go around it and sniff it. I discovered throughout the two weeks the tree has been up that the little smart ass was knocking off the ornaments that were at the bottom of the tree. I'm sooo glad that I put non-breakup decorations down there.

Rocky seems to love being around my daughter Rhyannon. He lets her pat him and she can actually hold him with no problem. He follows her around the house and he loves stealing her "my little pony" figurines. We also discovered that he loves playing with the funny ball. We will throw it and he chases it where every it bounces off of. Once he gets it, he will bring it over to us to rethrow it.

I've been combing him due to his coat. I'm actually going to look into a groomer. I want to make sure that his fur doesn't get matted and no poop gets entangled on his butt. I'll let everyone know how he does. I don't think he will stay still. The little bugger got his collar off. I have no idea how he did it and I'm still looking for it.

There is never a dull moment with Rocky and we love having the little guy. (I shouldn't say little. His feet are getting huge and he is filling out. I'm hoping to upload a picture of all three of them sleeping on the couch soon.)

5/9/17 - Rocky is doing well. He discovered that he can sit in the window and watch the birds. I've attached a picture of Rocky, Khufu, & Tigger. He is getting big.

BENTLEY
Do you need a drop dead gorgeous boy? Need a lap kitty? Want someone who will get along with other kitties? Want a mellow, outgoing, happy to see you kind of guy? Well, here I am. I love to give head butts and want nothing more then your love - well I do need a lap to lay in too but that comes automatically with your love right?

So Bentley, formerly Brion, is doing well. We named him Bentley for the bend in his tail and bc he is such an elegant boy like the car. From the first night he was head butting to get kisses and talking to us. He is the sweetest boy. He and one of our resident kitties are talking to each other through the door -too cute. I included a photo of him on his first night playing amongst his new toys. Thank you again for everything.

4/27/2014 - Bentley is doing well. He has been to our vet and gotten a clean bill of health. He is out of his isolation room and out in house free to roam. He is getting along with the other cats with just a little hissing from both sides. 90% of the time there is no hissing. He is enjoying the new environment as we got new carpets and furniture so they all have to make everything their own. I am posting pics of him sleeping on the arm of the old sofa and in his new box (that he loves). He is learning his name and starting to talk with his tail when you call him by that name. Silly kitty:) I will try to post updates more. Thank you again to everyone. He is a fabulous boy.

4/30/14 - yesterday for the first time Benley and his brother started playing. They were chasing each other around and meowing at each other. Too cute. They seemed to be having a lot of fun.

5/5/14 - happy cinco de mayo. Bentley is part if a changing household with new carpets and furniture in his first 3weeks. He is handling it all well and seems to be enjoying the new places to sleep or lounge. He is so loving and purrs all the time. Still playing with his brother (Little little) and the hissing has decreased significantly with him and the girls. I've added some more pictures for your enjoyment. I'll include pics of his new siblings so you can see them also.

6/1/14 - Bentley is making leaps and bounds. Hard to think he's been here only about 6weeks. He was so excited the other morning (at 5am) getting petted that he bit my nose. We must teach him the difference between sleep time and awake time. Anyway, Just a love nip. He came to visit me in the tub today getting on the edge to head butt for kisses. He really is a trip. He is so loving. For the first time last night he actually came to bed with everyone and went to sleep at the corner of my bed. He seems happy and continues to have a good relationship with his brother. They chase each other around like crazy kids. He is such a good boy I can hardly believe anyone would give him up. Lucky us though. He is a fabulous cat.

6/25/14 - Bentley is more and more of the lover boy he was described as. He ran to the door the other day to greet me after work. He still doesn't know darkness outside means sleeping time. He wants love and affection in the middle the night/early morning hours. He is so sweet you can't help but give him a hug no matter how tired you are. He still head butts for kisses and is more comfortable with being picked up. He loves to eat and especially chicken breast as an occasional treat. He has proven to be a good hunter. He nabbed a fly out of the air with one swipe of his paw the other day. He is a delight to come home and see after a long day. He does nothing but make us smile. Love him. I think he is truly happy here and is starting to love us. I hope he understands this is his forever home and his changing locations is over for good.

7/13/14 - Bentley coming out of his shell more and more everyday. We just lost Yala on Tuesday after 16 amazing yrs. so Bentley is going through some adjustments as the others are somewhat out of sorts. He is doing well though. He was going crazy this morning playing with one of his new feather toys. Bentley and his brother continue to chase each other through the house and have a good time. I have added some new pictures of him for everyone to see.

8/24/2014 - So Bentley is hysterical. He is so sweet and loving. He sleeps every night in bed with my daughter, Liz. I adopted him and he adopted her. Its all good b/c he is happy and that's what matters. He and his brother, Little, play constantly. They chase each other through the house chirping at each other. It is wonderful to watch. He has the smallest voice for his size. It is really funny. He talks, purrs, plays and seems to be enjoying himself here. I'll add some new pictures of him also.

9/20/2014 - Bentley comes out of his shell more and more every day. We love him. He is funny. He doesn't like any treats like the others do, but boy does he like chicken. He is fussy about getting his nails clipped and the other day we just had to suck it up and have it done. At the end he got chicken bc he did so well. He is with us more and more all the time. He greets me everyday at the door. My mom said he came down and got on the back of the chair to wait for me to get home from work one day last week. He and his brother continue to entertain us chasing each other around the house. Can't thank all of you enough for getting Bentley here to us. He is a wonderful addition to our family. I've put a new pic of him playing with the laser light.

10/31/2014 - Happy Halloween everyone. Treats all around... Bentley is our most special treat. He sleeps with me every night and has taken to "bathroom visits". What I mean by that is anytime I am in the bathroom he runs into the room, jumps up on the window sill and headbutts for kisses. He talks to the birds on the wires outside and then gets onto your lap for more love. I'd like this affection time to transition to the living room during TV time, but I'll give him love anytime he wants. He is the most loving at night before bed. We get into bed and he kneads and purrs like there is no tomorrow before curling up to go to sleep. My mom and Bentley play laser light almost every day. He is too funny running around like a kitten and playing. He is such a love-bug and so handsome. We just look at him and think what a handsome boy he is. We love him and I think everyday he loves us more and more.

12/16/2014 - Happy belated Thanksgiving to everyone. Bentley had turkey for breakfast on Thanksgiving and enjoyed every bite. He is still coming out of his shell all the time. He now sits on my lap in the chair and one of the other cats sleeps against him occasionally. It is cute to see how they are building a bond. I am so thankful we got involved with SCRC and adopted Bentley. He is priceless. My mom feels the same. I went away to see my father and when I came home I think Bentley missed me. It was nice to know he has truly become part of the family. Looking forward to our first Christmas with him. Let you know how it turns out.

1/24/2015 - So Christmas was as much of a present for us as it was for Bentley. He is just fabulous. So much has happened since my last update. Bentley spends most of his time with us. Either lying in the chair with me getting petted or lying on the floor with his head resting on his catnip toy. He and his sister Mia are finally getting along. She was the one struggling the most with him. They are not playing together yet, but there is no fussing or boxing matches with them. I again went away to my dad's and when I came home Mr. Bentley was the first one at the door welcoming me home. He is so sweet. My mom plays with him almost every morning with the laser light. I really question is he 9 years because when he plays he looks like he's 9 months old. He still head butts for kisses and I think that might be my favorite thing about him. He is just the sweetest kitty in the world. I am excited to see what 2015 holds for all of us. Happy New Year to everyone at SCRC. You have helped my mother and I have more happiness in our lives with this beautiful boy named Bentley.

4/21/2015 - Its been awhile since my last update. Bentley's 1yr anniversary was 4/12/15 and we celebrated with a fresh rotisserie chicken. He couldn't have been more excited. Bentley and all the cats are getting along now. He and his sister, CeCe (the 16yo siamese), are always sitting on each other. Bentley and his brother, Little (the 6yo orange tabby), play and run around together constantly. Sometimes I think Bentley is a kitten the way he plays. He loves cardboard boxes. When we order delivery we put the box on the floor for him and he is in it all the time. He also likes my old tennis bag so that is on top of the closet so he can lay in it and look out the window. We think he used to be allowed outside b/c he is always going to the door. He isn't a "door dasher" and backs up when asked, but he is definitely interested like he knows what it is to go out. I have to tell him "sorry that doesn't happen here". He seems very content in his furever home. He still wants lots of kisses and headbutts when he isn't getting enough. He greets me at the door when I come home from work almost every day. He plays with my mom and the laser light all the time. He is being a nudge today to his sister Mia (the 13yo Birman that took the longest to accept him). He keeps following her around and she doesn't want to play. It's funny to watch them. Bentley still doesn't love his nails clipped so we do them only when necessary. He likes to knead on my chest and stomach and sometimes - YIKES:))) He is better with it so maybe he's learning to trust me. He is a fabulous cat and we are lucky to have gotten to have him as a part of our family. He is so well behaved and affectionate I can't understand why anyone wouldn't want to keep him forever. We love him and I truly believe he loves us. Thank you SCRC!!!!

8/27/2015 - Bentley is fabulous. It is like he has lived here his whole life. He seems to be very happy. Anytime I sit in the chair he is immediately in my face head butting for kisses and purring. He settles on my chest and just wants to be petted. It is the cutest thing. He is finally letting my clip his nails without a fight or complaint. I'm so proud of him. He is just the best. My mom and I say all the time we wish we had known him when he was a kitten b/c he must have been so adorable. We couldn't be happier and I am confident he couldn't either. We are scheduled at the end of September for his yearly check up. I am sure all will be good, but I will let you know how he makes out.

10/5/2015 - Bentley's yearly exam went great. He was so funny at the vet. He was lounging in the chair in the waiting room between my mom and I. He also let the tech pick him up and carry him back to the exam room. He got his shots and is in excellent health. He is the best and happiest boy. We are so happy to have him.

10/18/2015 - We had our first health scare with Bentley. I noticed he wasn't acting quite right (not coming to see me like usual, staying in his favorite chair all the time, etc). Then he peed in my room Wednesday night. I called the vet and he said come in for labs. He peed in my room again Thursday night, but I knew we were off to the vet Friday afternoon. The whole ride he talked to me and all I could think about was him being dropped at the shelter by his owners less than 2years ago. I was afraid he was thinking that too. At the vet his fever was 103.9 and he had to stay overnight. They wanted to get him fluids and on antibiotics. I felt terrible. I went back to visit him that night. His temp had gone up to 104.9. Vet said he would need IV fluids if it reached 105.5. Bentley was MAD at me. I stayed for a while and finally he let me pet him. The next day I got the best call... the vet said come get him. His fever was gone. Got there as quick as we could and he was still not happy. Got him to the car and after a few minutes he was talking to me again. Once home he was the happiest boy. What a scare he gave us and how happy everyone is he is home. We love him tons. Waiting to hear lab results tomorrow, but for now he is doing really good.

2/10/2016 - Bentley is fabulous. He is happy and healthy and a great addition. He is so loving and sweet. Thank you SCRC.

4/27/2016 - We are getting ready to adopt our second cat from SCRC. Bentley will have a new brother. It is amazing to me that he has been here 2yrs. His adoption anniversary was 4/12/2016. He is so loving and is coming more and more into his own. He talks more now and head butts constantly for kisses. You can tell he is excited to see me when I come home from work everyday. He is so much better with getting his nails cut. I think he finally gets that it is ok and there will be a treat following his manicure:) We love him and look forward to making his new brother part of our home as well.

12/15/2016 - Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year to everyone from Bentley and the Staibs. Bentley is doing well. He is still a huge love and very happy boy. He told me to tell everyone thank you for finding him his forever home. He is the most handsome boy. Anyone who sees his picture Raves about how gorgeous he is. We love him so much and are so happy his misfortune turned out to be our fortune. He is shockingly now not leaving me to go visit the men (friends, cable guy, exterminator, etc) that come visit the house sporadically. The exterminator, Joe, is starting to comment. I think he's offended:) He's a cat guy also. Bentley, Derby 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. Bentley hopes all is well with his SCRC family. I'll add a new picture shortly.

5/8/2017 - So it has been 3 years since we adopted Bentley. Crazy how fast time flies. He is so happy with his forever home. We are so happy he is part of our family. He is still the sweetest boy ever. He plays with his brothers and they love to take turns chasing each other. He is always visiting me in the bathroom, sleeping on the back of my chair or laying in his favorite cardboard box. He is so silly. I still can't believe how big he is and how graceful he is at the same time. he is the biggest cat we have and the lightest on his feet. the smallest ones in the house sound like elephants. We love our Bentley and couldn't be happier he calls us his people.

Foster Notes

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
Notes from Home
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?


Notes from Home
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. :)

Notes from Home
Zeke has made tremendous progrss over the 2 weeks he has been here. From first hiding in the cat carrier, to hiding under my desk, to running away from me when I came close, and turning his head away, he is now walking around, tail up, in the basement, but also comes up to me to wake me up when Whally does. Whally is in charge (eats first, and runs Zeke off until he is done). Zeke now stays where he is when I enter the room, actively wants attention and petting (turned on his back so I could rub his tummy), purrs, looks outside at visiting birds, etc. I am so pleased he is developing into a reasonably well adjusted cat. He and Whally are playful together, and clearly are very attached to each other. Zeke is eating well (there was never any doubt about that considering his size), drinking well. I give him lots of attention, touch him a lot, have picked him up, and even that was ok for about 10 seconds, so I put him down again. When I sit with them, they enjoy the visit, show off a bit, but have not yet walked up to me. All this in 2 weeks! They will be perfectly fine.
4/4/17 Zeke now stays put when I walk into my basement room, which I call my den. He usually is on the sofa on a pillow, When I pet him, he purrs loudly, then gets off the sofa and walks around rubbing on various bits of furniture. I follow him, pet him, he puts his butt up for me to pat him on. Loves to look outside at the visiting birds and chipmunks. He will eventually lie on his back for a bellyrub on his still ample belly. He is not eating as much as before, which I see as a good sign because he is comfortable and gets attention. He wanders through the house mostly at night, but also comes up when Whally calls him. Still a bit unsure around Ziggy, but is finding out she is no threat and stays put when she comes into the room. Is shy of strangers, and has found a lovely hiding place behind some books in my bookcase. He is doing remarkably well for a cat who wanted nothing to do with me at all for the first few days.
5/8/17. Zeke is still quite timid, but now that the basement room is closed off, wanders through the house more, and now lies on my bed when I'm in it too. Is still walking away from me when I walk up and down, but not panic stricken. I get the impression that Zeke and Whally got punished for getting out of the basement in their previous situation, as particularly Zeke shrinks when I want to stroke his head. Clearly Whally is the alpha cat. Zeke is not asking to be petted, but when I do, is quite content, purrs. Since they are together, they depend on each other for company, which is OK with me. Progress is remarkable for a cat who was hiding from me at first. All is well here. Will give further update when vet appointment has been completed.

WHALLY
Paired with my brother Zeke, we have been left to our own devices for awhile and are looking forward to remembering about laps and snuggles. We'll need lots of reassurance at first please!

Notes from Home
Whally has made very good progress these first 2 weeks. He and Zeke were in an upstairs room for the first few days, with the door closed for the first 2. He started exploring right away, and found an excellent hiding place behind my bed, so that I couldn't find him! Place is now blocked off, don't want either of them sitting in the dark. They have the run of the house now, and decided the basement room was a good place to be. Moved their litterbox downstairs, and feed them there as well. Whally (who is a slinky cat) is affectionate, wants to be petted (I go to him), purrs, eats and drinks well, is still a little shy, but not at all fearful. He comes to wake me up in the morning, so walks through te house. Ziggy, the dog, is interested of course, but stays on the main floor of the house mostly, and gets hissed at when she comes downstairs. Whally sits under a chair, does not run away. Is eating and drinking well, but does not like wet food much, so I'll keep to dry for now. Ziggy's birthday was yesterday abd got some raw chicken as a treat. Offered some to cats, who were not interested. My basement room is a walkout, so very comfortable, and I st there when watching tv. They were also pleasant to my cleaning lady, who loves pets. She reported that the vacuum was not well liked!
4/4/17. Whally is settling in quite well. He now comes up to the living room on the main floor from the basement room that I call my den. He does that early in the morning when Ziggy is sleeping in upstair in my bedroom. Is talkative, and sat on my lap yesterday. Is shy of strangers, still skittish with me, but clearly is making good progress. Pictures coming soon. I call him "Slinky Whally" because he bends like a slinky in all directions.
5/8/17. After a busy month of April, with family staying, handymen fixing things in the house, etc. things are back to being quiet again. Food is in the kitchen on the main floor now. I have closed off the basement room so that Whally is now forced to be upstairs more. Works fine. He was lounging on carpet in strategic position this morning, and also jumped on my bed upstairs for rubs. Eating and drinking well, eyes have cleared up completely, although third eyelid is somewhat reddened. Am setting up vet appointment for later this month.
