I'm a California boy, adopted originally from So. Calif. Siamese Rescue. My family made the long move from the west coast to Florida, and they brought me with them. So, they must have loved me, right? What's not to love? I'm cuddly, sweet as can be and very handsome (so I've been told). But I was picked up outside by animal control and when they tried to locate my family through my microchip, there was no reply. We'll probably never know what happened, but I'm looking for a new family now. I've lived with dogs and other cats and I'm cool with both. So, how about a nice flame to warm up the cold winter nights for you?

Foster Notes

Who out there is looking for a BEAUTIFUL big blue eyed lynx gal? I'm petite, but I can dish out some loving! My foster memom told me that she thinks I'm "the bomb" when it comes to kitties!!

I brought my little baby Dillon with me & we get along very nicely :)

Until I meet you with your click,
Purrs & headbutts,
Notes from Home
Lily is settling in quite well... she wanted to get out and explore quite early, and is quite the demanding lovebug. She is a bit of a diva, with the other cats, but today she has been on my bed with two of them, and just minutes ago, my clownish HUGE DSH, Clooney was sound asleep within inches of her (I think he has a crush), and she was relaxed and happy! She is quite fascinated by my Scottie, although she "met" my Mastiff today, and that got a rather poofy tail response. I have no concern that she won't get over the shock of a 120 pound dog. She is VERY affectionate, but quite opposed to being picked up, although she is not instantly fighting it like she was last week... she is a smart girl, and I think she is discovering it leads to loves.

I have discovered that she is quite frightened of men. To the extent that her whole demeanor changes to one of fear and hiding... and she runs and greats me, and most women. So, that will take a bit of time, I think. I have a feeling, there was some trauma related to that. She is young, and has adjusted quickly, so although it will take some time, I think she will gradually start to trust again. She is quite the character, and I am looking forward to a long time with her!!

1/23: Lily has decided that the best place to sleep at night is on the bed with me... although she has to share it with my Scottie, and my himalayan, Sassy. My Scottie just snores, and is the one animal in my house that Lily has never hissed at...I am not sure if she really knows what he is. He's a pretty mellow Scottie. She snuggles next to me, but her alarm goes off at 4:30, am, unfortunately... and then she becomes chatty and curious. If I could just get her to sleep in a little later:) She is still a bit diva with the other cats, but I have caught her lounging with two of them on my bed (for most of the day). Pretty good for being here two weeks. She is probably right at a year old, so I anticipate that she will become a little more tolerant of them fairly quickly. Still seems scared of men, but she met my 13 year old nephew, and was not phased in the least by him. She did relatively well with my vet, too. She really is a sweetie... and she follows me everywhere! Smart kitty!

1/31: Boy has Lily settled in! She romps in the morning, explores, plays, chirps, and follows me everywhere! She evens snuggles up next to my fat Scottie, Duncan, when she thinks no one is looking ( when she isn't snuggled next to me at night) Cooper the mastiff is still not her cup of tea, but he is 12 times bigger than her! So, she observes him cautiously, and then bops Clooney on the head! Poor Clooney ... My big fat cat thinks Lily is quite the bomb, and tries hard to impress her, but she just wants to be "friends". Poor guy. Lily is so sweet... Still has a kitten streak, but is respectful of my 17 year old Balinese, Piwacket, has realized that Sassy the Himalayan is just a sweet girl who likes to sit quietly and purr, Clooney is going to keep trying, and Duncan the Scottie can't possibly be a dog or a cat, so he must be OK. She has a spot on her shoulder that induces her to literally throw herself to her side when it is scratched. Heaven and purrs! Even warming up to being picked up (hmmm...when mom picks me up, she gives me loves!). Last but not least, she loves to eat...it's dinner time , so must go! Lily is calling...

4/11/2014...Just a quick update on Lily! She seems like she has been here longer than just a few months! Quite the queen of the house, and very playful. She has put on a little weight (since she is pretty young, she still has a small amount of growing left. She likes to go on the 8am/8pm tear around the house, often with Clooney... so it a bit like elephant cats running around. Quite noisy! She sleeps with me at night, but has decided lately that 4 am is a good time to get up and explore. Yikes. All in all she is a normal, happy cat!

07/15/2014... 6 month update on Lily. Lily is quite at home with my three other kitties, having found that her favorite to play with is Clooney. In the past few months, there were some changes in my house, as I lost my rescue Dogue de Bordeaux (French Mastiff), Cooper, to cancer. Shortly after, I rescued a another female Dogue de Bordeaux, named Brandi, who a shy sweet girl. She is smaller and less rambunctious than Cooper was, so all the cats have gotten quite used to her (she is very good with kitties). Lily, being a bit of a Diva, will occasionally swat at her, but for the most part just ignores her. Lily loves to spend the day lounging in her favorite chair, or laying in a sunny spot. She is quite spoiled!! :)

1/26/2015... Hard to believe Lily has been here a full year! In this past year, she got to briefly know two doggies, who went to the rainbow bridge, and then to help welcome a new rescue. I was laid off from my job early in 2014, and spent most of the rest of the year looking for a new job. Lily got to have lot's of time with me, and she always makes me smile. She can be quite independent, (and I think she would be more than happy to be the only queen of the house). She is very smart, and has her diva moments, but is a very sweet girl, and loves to snuggle. I actually put her on a leash and give her garden time, which she LOVES! She actually prefers to do her business outside, so it is a bit like taking the dogs out on a walk to do the same! Lily is a little larger now, so I do think she was quite young when I got her (maybe just a year?). Such a pretty girl, and quite settled! I see MANY years with my sweet girl!

1/10/2017 Many changes since my last update, but Lily is here and doing great! She has become quite the snuggle bug... she curls up next to me at night, and likes to sleep on my lap, when I watch TV. Still a bit of a diva with the other cats, but for the most part much more mellow. I lost my Scottish Terrier to cancer this summer, so currently I just have my mastiff and three other cats (including my now almost 20 years old meezer!) In March, I will be welcoming a new Scottie into the fold... a three month old puppy. Lily has gotten used to the comings and goings of pets, fosters, and friends furbabies who come to visit. I'm sure she'll adjust quickly. She still likes her (supervised) time in the garden, although not in the winter.

I am one lucky gal and only had to spend a few days in the shelter before Siamese Rescue was able to spring me. I was a favorite of the shelter manager and had a nice big cage so it wasn't all that terrible. Foster Mom gave me a bath as soon as she got me to her house and it was fine, I didn't fuss at all. This tells foster mom just how easy going I am. You should probably ask about me soon because sweet young things like me usually get snatched up pretty quick.

Notes from Home
Hello all! Just found out that I can do updates online that all of you can see. I have been emailing with Shirley since Saturday and spoke with Sheri the day before yesterday so they are both pretty much up to date.

We picked Layla up on Saturday, August 8 and other than a little car sickness and we did the nice hilly, windy road from the Greensboro, NC area to Virginia she did great. She settled in immediately. Checked out her room, her toys, food, litterbox, etc. And was ready to play and for lots of love an attention which, of course, she got. She ate overnight and had a normal BM.

She met my vet on Monday and got a clean bill of health. Her records are on file and in the online

database so I get updates when she is do for anything. I also picked up Revolution as she is due for her next dose tomorrow.

She is an awesome girl who craves human contact and affection and follows me around like a puppy. Love this girl already.

She did try to give me a few hairs by refusing her food for two days, but she snarfed down all of her canned food and some kibble last night and ate half a can of wet food and more kibble today so hopefully we are in a routine. I just ordered a case of the EVO Chicken and Turkey online and if she eats it, will get it on auto delivery. It is carried here, but only in Virginia Beach and frankly the price on Chewy.com is much better and I don't have to deal with the traffic. lol She does not like the Blue Buffalo in any flavor so that goes back. My 14 year old thought it was fantastic, but had adverse reaction. Thank God for the spot bot to clean that up!

I will attempt to send a few pictures after I send this update. Yesterday the system booted me and my nice long detailed update and pictures disappeared into cyber space. Hence this update is a little bit less detailed.

Friday, August 14, 2015
Hard to believe it's almost been a week. Now that she is comfortable, the diva in her is really coming out! She desperately wants attention, but then not, but then yes again, and then no....usually in 20-30 second increments. She is doing her growling thing now. Little does she know that I have been around Siamese practically since birth. A little growl isn't going to scare me away! She really expresses herself with her ears. She will lay them back and purr looking perfectly content. Then the eyes pop open, the ears go up then flat then we gggrrrrr and run away. Then we come running back again. She puts the ears sideways like Yoda when she is thinking about something. It's really pretty funny.

I was able to upload a few pictures of her today. Hope you enjoy them.

August 22, 2015 - It's been two weeks since this little girl joined the family. She is truly a job. So lovey dovey, but she has her limit. I truly believe her first family gave her no love. She desperately craves attention, but holding her or petting her for more than 30 seconds at a time, and this is a marked improvement, and she wants to turn it into bite/play/put me down. Shirley, you made the right decision about the family with the toddler. That would have been a disaster. She isn't anywhere close to being ready for that. She gets loves of love and attention, just in small doses.

The EVO canned food arrived on Thursday so I am int he process of transitioning her over from the Fancy Feast. I am mixing in a little of the Fancy Feast until she is ready for straight EVO. The Blue Buffalo Grain Free kibble she loves! She gets this is moderation and snarfs it down right away.

I got an emails from DADS asking for feedback. I completed the survey last week. If it did not go through, please let me know and I will complete it again. I think your process is great and your volunteers do a great job vetting the applicants and also assessing the cat's personality for a good match.

We are making progress with her sitting "on" vice near us in the evenings. I have attached three pictures that show the progress. She sits on my footstool with just her upper body on one of my shins. The she stretches out over both of my shins. Then she rolls sideways across both shins and stretches out. I assume she is working her way up to my lap. :-)

September 8, 2015
Wow, it's been a month! Layla is doing great. Sometimes I think she is schizophrenic she has so many personalities. Cuddle time is up to 30 seconds at a time, then she wants loose, but comes right back for more. Still not a lap cat, but I put the cuddle pad on the couch and she snoozes there in the evenings when we watch TV. Next week I will move it a little closer and see what she does. She and my 14 year Blue Point completely ignore each other. Hoping that will change. I have added two new pictures. The one of her on the pillows was last weekend when we had friends over. I have an L shaped couch so there were people e on both sides with Layla making herself comfy on the wedge where the throw pillows ended up. The other picture is her on the cuddle pad.

Layla has a new favorite toy. Nothing else, including the feather toy interests her anymore. It is a mouse that came as a gift from Road Runner Pharmacy with Jasmine's precription. They always include one or two toys. Layla is in total love with this mouse. she plays with it for hours chasing it all over the first floor (hardwood so it slides great), carries it around in her mouth, or takes it upstairs with her. She even hides it in James' slippers and includes them in the game. If she knocks it under the couch, she will lay there staring at it until you get it out for her and then the hunt is on again.

She has transitioned completed to the EVO canned with the Blue Buffalo kibble and is doing really good. She has really filled out and the fur is better and better all the time. We love this little girl to pieces, attitude and all. I always say, if I wanted a lap cat, I would get a Persian. I have Siamese for a reason.

November 8, 2015 - Today we celebrate our three month anniversary! This baby has come a long way. She is more tolerant of being held and sometimes sleeps at the foot of the bed at night. Not a lap cat, but she has to be around me at all times. my petite girl is petite no more. She has a voracious appetite and will eat anything. She cleans the kitchen floor better than even the dog did! Layla has just joined me in my office and is sitting on my desk looking out the window as I compose this update. She has settled in quite well and I believe she finally understands that this is her forever home. I posted a new picture of her with my 14.5 year old Blue Point Jasmine enjoying a morning siesta in the sun. They are roughing it on a feather pillow wrapped in a shearling blanket.

May 7, 2016. Layla is doing great and is happy to have a playmate is Sidney who we adopter two weeks ago today.

5/23/16: Layla celebrated her second birthday last week. Update pictures are posted. She has really gotten dark. Layla and Sidney get along great and race all over the house. It sounds like a herd of elephants. Sometimes she needs a little break from the bundle of energy who wants to play and race around every two hours.

August 8, 2016
Happy one year anniversary Layla! One year ago today we made that long drive to NC to bring Layla to her forever home. She is a welcome addition to our family and is healthy and happy. Well, relatively happy Right now we need to lose a few pounds so we aren't all too happy with mama. Started her prescription diet one week ago today and are taking it slowly. I am posted a new picture of Layla. Sometimes I really believes is a dog and not a cat.

1/10/17 - Happy New Year! Layla was spoiled for Christmas and enjoyed all the goodies that came out of her Christmas stocking.
My little fluff does not understand portion control and between the two of us, she bloomed to a whopping 15.5 lbs! She is on a prescription diet now and is doing great. She has dropped down to 13.5 lbs with a target weight of 11.0 lbs. My vet and I will determine at that time if we need to get her a little lower.
Today Layla is enjoying bird watching. We got snow this weekend and my bird feeder is getting lots of visitors. Since it hangs from a tree outside one the living room windows, Layla can enjoy her bird watching while lounging on a feather pillow under a heater vent. I have posted pictures.

Everyone wants a lap cat right? Well I am a master lap snuggler - do you need someone to cuddle with you at night? Well here I am. You can not find anyone who snuggles and cuddles better then me. Does my age bother you - pah! I am young at heart and healthy as can be. I play with wand toys and give the old laser light a run for its money. I am good with other kitties and I love dogs. Yes, I know my eyes look funny but I can see - didn't you read the part about me loving to play with wind toys?? I went to the doctor and they poked and prodded and guess what?? They found not a thing. Yup. My blood work is fabulous. Now, where is my lap to curl up in??

p.s. Watch my video and you will get a taste of what a major love bug I am.
Notes from Home
Tristan is finally recovered from his ordeal! He got his stitches out today and is looking so much better. He is happily enjoying life spending his time sitting on window ledges watching the world outside or cuddling in a lap. He is obviously a very tough cat and we are thrilled by how well he has healed!

Tristan is doing great. He is playful and cuddly, and is doing his best to explore every nook and cranny of our house (he is a pro at opening cabinets). He has the sweetest little meow and loves to talk. He is quite a happy boy.

To celebrate Tristan's one year adoption anniversary, we took a couple pictures today. Also pictured is Tristan's new best friend, our recently adopted seven month old puppy, Freya!

Tristan is still doing very well. He did have to have all his teeth removed this year, but he has adjusted to his toothless existence quite well and you'd have no idea unless you looked in his mouth. He and Freya get along great, they even play together! I've add a picture of Tristan from Halloween when he dressed up as Oscar the Grouch. We're so happy to have Tristan as a part of our family!

Things are looking up for me!!!
After 9 years in a good home, my mom died and I found myself in a shelter and not liking that so much.

Foster mom has given me a real BOY'S name (for some reason my prior name was Zoey, nice but a girlie name). So far I have shown all the great traits of a flame boy - I am sweet, sweet, sweet, like petting, brushing, nuzzling and headbutts.

Foster mom says I am handsome too.

Updates forthcoming as I settle in.

Notes from Home
We are making good progress. We have been letting him wander increasingly more rooms in the house with Isis also wandering for increasing amounts of time. Today we have given Joey access to the entire house all day. He is mostly in the master bedroom either on the window seat above a radiator or on a soft pad with toys. Isis is still hissing at him on occasion so they are not yet friends, but on a couple of occasions they have sat about three feet apart on the rug. When she hisses, Joey just retreats. We have not changed his name. Joey is the sweetest boy but also very shy and easily spooked. When spooked his response is to get under the bed or other furniture and to eat less. As we were warned, he really hates to get in the carrier but we needed to do that to take him to the vet last Thursday. The doctor confirmed that he is in excellent condition including not needing any additional dental work. But that visit traumatized him: he went under the bed and ate little for two days. But he has now resumed eating and is exploring as noted above.

Update July 4, 2016. Joey is clearly much more comfortable now in his new home. He is a very delicate boy, but very sweet and doing very well.
Personality: During the day Joey's behavior varies. On good days he comes downstairs for breakfast and dinner and stays downstairs for some of the day. On other days he stays upstairs on the rugs, beds or window seats and needs his food brought upstairs. He is not a lap cat, but likes petting-mostly on his cheeks and head, and mostly for brief periods of time. He lets us know when he has had enough. Sometimes if we lie on the bed he will lie beside us and allow some petting. If someone comes to the house, he goes under the bed. He seems to love being under the beds.

Food. He still likes Fancy Feast and my Vet has assured me that is fine. He is a grazer, but usually eats almost all of two cans a day. He has gained weight and is now about 10 pounds.
Brushing. When he came here he was losing handfuls of fur every day and throwing up hair balls, I tried every available kind of brush including the one Diana gave me, but he did not like any of them. He now loses very little fur, I brush him only occasionally, and he has not thrown up for a couple of weeks.
Integration with Isis. They now tolerate each other, occasionally will lie or sit down within feet of each other, but mostly remain independent. Isis who ate only kibble, now likes Fancy Feast and will sometimes steal his food so I am the Joey food protector.
Toys: He likes the toys Diana sent with him and some I have given him including mice with cat nip. He likes to snuggle with them and sometimes tosses them about.
Scratching: At the Vet's suggestion, we are having his nails cut every two weeks. We have three scratching posts, often sprayed with cat nip, and except for occasional rug scratching that is where he scratches so the problem is under control.
So...Joey is very integrated into our family and I think is a pretty happy boy. We look forward to him getting more comfortable as time goes on and allowing even more petting and snuggling.

January 9, 2017

There are few changes from the update submitted in July. The biggest change is that Joey has now found soft chairs downstairs that he likes so sometimes stays downstairs most of the day and even sometimes overnight. When people come into the house he sometimes does not run away and has even allowed a female friend to pet him briefly. As to his occasional refusal to eat, our Vet Tech who cuts his nails suggested that may be caused by constipation and suggested putting a little bit of Miralax in his food when that happens so I will try that. He now often sleeps on our bed at night and wakes me in the morning for food if I sleep longer than usual. He also spends more time close to Isis. So Joey is clearly getting more at home here and is doing very well.

My sister Smokey and I came into rescue together when our owner moved and left us at the shelter. I'm not sure why he left us behind, but we're not overly concerned. We're pretty laid back girls and as long as we're getting the attention we deserve, we're content. I'm the more alpha female and eat up all of the attention I can get - constantly purring, talking and headbutting everyone who comes in to see us. I only arrived last night, but already I've taken over our new room and have settled us both in nicely. I'm your typical big sister and have to make sure that my little sister stays in line and also protect her and keep an eye on her. We really do love each other and would like to stay together if at all possible. You won't find a more loveable pair of meezers anywhere, so if you're looking for a pair of pretty girls to talk to you and snuggle with you, be sure to ask about us!

We lost Rara on January 29, 2013 after a brief illness. She continued under the care of our original vet, Dr. Karen Brown (Stonington) throughout her life.. Dr Brown could provide the details. Rara was the first of our "Girls" to pass away. We lost our second "Girl", Sukki (aka Smokey) last year after what at first appeared to be early stage kidney failure, but was actually a growth in her abdomen. We notified Siri at Siamese Rescue when Sukki passed, but wanted you to know that we are once again considering adoption... two more girls or a pair of soul mates! Rara and Sukki were the love of our life and are truly missed. We wanted you to know as well since you helped make our first adoption possible. Please keep us in your hearts as we begin once again.

Anyone looking for an Administrative Purrsistant? My skills include supervising humans while at the computer, lap sitting for hours, sleeping up against you in bed all night, long chats, and giving hugs and mouth kisses. Other cats are my least favorite thing in the whole world. I'd prefer to be your one and only. I'm healthy, super friendly and loving, and I'd love a home of my very own for the holidays! I'm ready to go home today, so please ask about me!

Notes from Home
Lizzie and I are both so fortunate that we found each other! She had a terrific foster Mom (Melanie, in Knoxville) and Dad, and was stressed when she was taken from them, I'm sure. But we have had a chance to bond now and we adore each other! Her favorite thing in the world is the crocheted wand toy that Melanie sent with her; when I come home from work she would rather that I grabbed the wand to play with her than to grab the catfood! She is truly a sweetheart.

Photos are taken with an iPad in bad light and are not great; her eyes are bluer than this!

1-9-17 Lizzie has been with me now for one year and she is doing great! I'm afraid she is still overweight by a couple of pounds, even though she only eats food from the vet for overweight cats now. She's showing off her belly in one of the photos I uploaded today, and in the other photo she's waiting to be fed. Aside from our "conversations" about food, though,we find plenty of time to bond, as I retired nine months ago and spend a lot more time at home with her. Love her!!

This cat will not tolerate being with a female cat. This is usually a female cat.Not with Female Cats
Well settled, well socialized, and just a little well rounded, I'm a very well established easy going gal who lost my home due to the economy, and now need a new one. I've lived with cats and kids before, and I'm pretty easy going about it all.....
Notes from Home
Three days in and we could not be happier with Bailey. She is funny, sweet, and loves to play with her wand toys. She hit the kitty trifecta (eat, drink, litter box) within her first 12 hours home and she has slept with us each night. Did I mention she is beautiful?

Bailey had her first wellness check-up this morning and she passed with flying colors.

January 25, 2014
We had friends over for dinner this evening and Bailey was the perfect hostess. She greeted our guests at the door, listened politely to all the dinner conversations and provided after dinner entertainment by demonstrating her kitty condo climbing skills.

February 1, 2014
Bailey had two major "firsts" last night and we could not be happier.
First, she let my husband pick her up. It was only for a minute or two but still. Huge for her (and him!)
Second, she voluntarily curled up on my lap for a nap. This was the first time for any lap sitting but I hope not the last.
Other than that, we have finally found several non-seafood foods that she will eat. No beef, no duck, no rabbit, and not a big chicken fan but she devours lamb and organ meats. And seafood.
February 15, 2014
Bailey is such a great cat. She is a complete busybody and can always be found where the action is - even if the action is washing dishes. We have settled on a rotation of foods (including a chicken flavor or two) that she will eat although the highlight of her diet is the nightly freeze-dried chicken treat game. We hide 3-4 pieces and she will not stop racing around the house until she finds them all.

It's been five months since we brought Bailey home. Last month, Bailey had her first experience with a cat sitter. It was a complete success. We hung a squirrel-proof bird feeder in the back yard so Bailey could watch from her kitty condo. She is not a lap cat but seems perfectly content to curl up next to one of us for some love, brushing, or just a little nap. So sweet.

9-23-12 Sunday morning snoozing.....

New photos! Take a look at the gallery photos with my fur family Singer, Sheba, and Big Sam. That's me with my mouth open. =_

Purrs-little Sammie

Update 9-4-12

Ok....Olympics are over and I'm still here hanging out with the dog! What's up with that?


Sammie loves people, dogs and other cats. She loves to lay beside her people or near them on the couch and plays with anything she can find, bags, boxes crinkle balls or balls.. Neat and tidy eater, good litterbox habits; just an all around wonderful meezer and a true rescue story!

Take a look at her pictures.....she's waiting......

Foster mom says for such a tiny, little thing I sure can stretch out but then it's Olympic season you know! Check out my photo gallery for my entire routine.
For adopters who haven't yet met me, I'm what some people call a mono-vision cat since I only have one eye. Read more of my history below..
That happened long before I came into rescue and folks here have taken such good care of me that I'm all healed up now and don't even realize I'm mono-sighted. Yea, sometimes I have to jump up a couple of times to actually hit the couch or bed but heck it's just a routine workout session for me. Got to stay in shape you know for all those adopters out there looking for their very own Meezerettte. Some of foster mom's friends call me "Monamono" and some call me "Pirate Cat", ummm, gives me an idea for Halloween you know...
Take a look at my photo gallery to see if I'm your Gold medal girl, I'm working on perfecting my routine just in time to show it to my new Mom or Dad.

Purrs and headbutts, now back to S-T-R-E-T-C-H........
love, Sammie (Monamono, Pirate Cat)

UPDATE: July 13th - My stitches are gone and Dr. Dowden pronounced me to be all healed up. Only have to wear the collar two more days and then I'm FREE. I have been a super trouper throughout this little bump in my life. Will you cuddle me now that I'm ready for my forever home? Purrs and cuddles, Sammie

U{DATE: July 9th. Doesn't my purple collar '"highlight" my eye? I am such a cute little petite girl and just adorable. Even with my e-collar on, I totally integrated myself with Mama Katie's crew yesterday. I am just fine with them and even fell asleep on the favorite sleeping spot on the couch. No one seemed to mind. And, here's the big new - I get my stitches out on Friday. I can't wait because they do itch and this collar gets in my way when I want to rub my eye and take a bath. Well, watch for more pictures without stitches and this silly collar on Friday. AND, most important, be sure to "ask about me". Lots of love, purrs and headbutts, Sammie

UPDATE: 7/2/12 - Well, I'm now ready for you to "ask about me". I've had my dental (my teeth are clean and a lost only one tooth), the remainder of my eye has been removed and the lids sewn together In another week, I'll get my stitches out. Foster Mom says that I've been a very good girl through out all of my trials and tribulations, so she is ready to post me. NOW, you can "see me" and think about whether or not you would like to adopt me. My being blind in my right eye doesn't seem to bother me a bit. The only thing that gets in my way is this purple cone that JR loaned me to wear. He said it's not bad, but "who does he think he's kidding"? At least I only have to wear it one more week. Mama Katie will post pictures shortly.

Just like Mama Jan said, I am tiny, petite, sweet and a great seal point girl. Love everyone and be sure to ask about ME. Purrs and headbutts, Sammie

Update: 6/21/12

Sammie's vet check revealed additional health needs to be resolved prior to eye surgery. Sammie will have a complete dental done prior to planned eye surgery. Keep an eye on Sammie's bio for the true TAIL of a Siamese Rescue kitty....

Just arrived. More information soon.

Sammie will under go surgery to remove what remains of her right eye on Wednesday of this week. Little is known about the injury but she has clearly been someone's pet and adores any attention she's given. She is tiny, playful, and a super love bug!

More info as she settles in and recuperates from her surgery.

Foster Notes


Notes from Home
It was just a year ago today that I brought home my darling Trissa, then known to Rescue as Sammie. I live in the Chicago area, and she was being fostered by Mom Jan in Bloomington, IN. Happily, I was visiting a friend in southern Indiana, so it was easy to just make a small detour on my way home and collect my cat. Thus I did my own transport.

Her description said she was a lap cat, and boy, is she ever! All I have to do is settle in the recliner or lie down on the couch to read, and she's right there! She sleeps with me every night, usually on my pillow; we sort of rest against each other, so I hear her little heartbeat, when it's not drowned out by her purring.

She settled in quickly; she was napping with me by the second day. We had some problems at first with her barfing up hairballs on a distressingly regular basis--sometimes in my bed! After several vet visits, I blundered onto the solution: Laxatone hairball remedy twice a day. We've lately been able to cut back to once a day most times. She still throws up once in awhile, but nothing like what she had been doing those first couple of months. Now it usually happens when she's eaten too fast. She's such a dainty little creature that I hadn't realized at first that she was wolfing her food, but she was. Giving her small portions with a few minutes break in between for her stomach to catch up, has helped also, but I give main credit to the Laxatone. Conveniently available from Amazon, since my local pet stores don't carry it.

The one thing she doesn't like, as with most cats, is having her claws trimmed. I'll never forget the first time at home; it took three adult women to subdue and clip one small cat! We've recently reached the point, however, where I can do one paw at a time, by myself. She still doesn't like it, but at least she's not having hysterics about it.

She's very sociable. I had a small anniversary party for her Saturday, with three close friends. She sat in each one's lap by turns, being a good little hostess.

I'd had some misgivings about adopting a cat, never having had one before, but it's worked out great. I love her dearly and now don't know what I would do without her. Just call us Hugs & Snuggles, Inc.

Dec. 30, 2015 I very sadly had to have my sweet girl put to sleep today. She had lymphoma, a type of cancer, which had reached the point that the vet and I agreed she was having serious discomfort. I gave her the best life I could, and held her as she passed over the bridge. She will always be my 'heart cat.'

Jan. 8, 2017 Yesterday I met Emma, whom I am in the process of adopting, and who I think will be a worthy successor. But Trissa will always be my #1.

Just arrived at meowmy's, had a snack, had a bath, (BOO), and now I'm ready to play.
I'm instantly friendly, snuggly and purry. I told meowmy I need a kitten friend to go home
with. A cute little girl kitten PLEASE.


Still stuck in the bathroom, until the ringworm is cleared up, but I'm going home as soon as I can!.


Notes from Home
Pluto arrived home a short time ago (with Taylor). He meowed the majority of the way home. As soon as I opened the door of the carrier, Pluto came out and immediately began to explore. About 20 minutes in, he ate some food and explored some more. Boy, can this boy purr! He is now asleep on the couch.

Azizi has been home a little over a month and is a total joy. He is an outgoing, social and loving boy. He loves to play, not only with Taylor, but with his three chi siblings, Paislee, Saylor and even temperamental Laila. He loves to wait and pounce and they seem to enjoy it also. I feel incredibly fortunate to have Taylor and Azizi in my life.

Everybody loves Azizi! Always a social boy-he is becoming more loving. He makes his way in and out of bed throughout the night and even lays/grooms Taylor on occasion. He has the run of the house, but prefers the window seat overseeing the back yard, looking out the front door and any sunny spot. Funny, when the dishwasher is running he strategically places himself on the counter to enjoy the heat produced. Yes, he oversees ALL kitchen duties. We continue to work on the nail trimmings and the dreaded teeth brushing as he is less than pleased with both. He is a real joy!

Azizi is quite the boy and always the scene stealer and loves all the attention. He has even taken to grooming his 14 year old lab sister. All is fine except when he gets a bit overzealous and her patience gives way to annoyance. He is a typical young boy-always looking to get into things and that he does. He is so self-assured and it shows in everything he does. During the day, he can be found in the sunniest spot as he is a sun worshipper.

Wow, a year already! Azizi is thriving! He loves his window seats, which he alternates with Taylor. Sometimes he likes to view the birds/squirrels/rabbits in the back yard and sometimes he prefers to watch the goings on in the front yard. At times, Taylor will be in one and Zi decides he wants it so he jumps up and bothers her just enough to get his way. He just discovered chicken hearts, his new favorite treat, and will do whatever it takes to ensure he gets his share. He is a playful boy with a certain sparkle in his eye much like Dennis the menace. Rest assured he is spoiled and loved.

Azizi continues to be Dennis, but a little less so. He is extremely gentle when my grandchildren come to visit. Zi loves to play with my two-year old granddaughter as they both race to catch the moving light. His coat feels like mink-incredibly perfect. He is more elusive than Taylor, but loves a good nap with Mom. Typically, the early evening brings out his wild side when he tries to engage Taylor in rough play much to her dismay. He is a wonderful little boy.
