HERO
The good sam that picked me up in the parking lot didn't realize I had kittens out there. She took me to the shelter because that road was really fast and busy. I was covered in cooking grease and I got a shelter cold. But I am resilient and am ready to take on the world now. I promise to be a lover. I like other cats and I like dogs. And I get gold stars for being good with kids. What is not to like about me?

Notes from Home
Hi, All! Every time I sit down to write you about Hero and Claudio, I have an interruption from one thing or another. So quick note, both Hero and Claudio are doing well. I have attached pictures below. They spend a lot of their time snuggling together, and hanging out with us humans. Claudio is happiest sitting in a sunny window; Hero prefers sleeping under a chair where she feels safe and it's quiet. Both seem happy, have good appetites, and are up to date on all shots and annual exams with their vet, Dr. Adelman.

NIAMH
Senior Sweetheart Seeks Retirement Home

I am a super sweet geezer who just wants to cuddle, purr, and get pet all day! I like to investigate and sniff around from time to time, and looking out the window is fun too, but mostly I just want a nice quiet place to hang out with someone willing to give me lots of love and attention. I love to lounge around on lots of soft pillows and blankets and cuddle with my people. Other animals might be OK if they keep to themselves and let me have lots and lots of time with the people.

I love to climb on you and rub on you, and I am a big kneader who loves to purr - I will let you know when I am happy! I may not be too playful, but I am great at hunting the humans in the house down to let them know I need some attention!

If you are looking for a sweet retiree to spend some quality snuggle time with then I can't wait to meet you! Bonus points if you have some seafood flavored food or treats for me, I love those!

Thanks for asking how things are going with my new girl. Things have been a bit hectic here since she arrived because her brother Fergus was diagnosed with diabetes the week she arrived, and a few days later her brother Aengus had to go to the Veterinary emergency clinic late at night for a mysterious ailment. All is calm now and I can focus on the integration, which is going slowly but well.

I must say I believe I won the jackpot when I adopted Yum Yum. She is a delight. Talkative, interactive, smart, spunky. Her appetite has improved greatly and she now eats food with chicken in it; I wonder if she was so picky because of her teeth? My vet checked her over and felt her oral surgery had healed well.

I've changed her name, by the way. I give my cats Irish names and so she has become Niamh (pronounced Neeve) and answers to that name, comes when called. Her brothers, especially Aengus, want to be friends, but she warned them off with loud hisses when I first began introductions. She has progressed to sniffing noses with them, then drawing back and hissing. They don't respond! Aengus in fact seems disappointed. He chirps and trills at her and she is warming slightly to him.

She insists on sleeping with me, which is fine, but has effectively taken over the upstairs of my apartment, banishing the boys from that part of the house for the most part. They do leave her "messages" by using "her" litterbox, though, as well as theirs in the bathroom. She is reluctant to come downstairs to the ground floor but we are working on that. She comes down the stairs though, pokes her head through the bannister, and watches her brothers, and also talks loudly to me. I am going to try to upload some pictures of her in her new home.

FROSTY
I started out just a bit shy but now I found my courage and my voice and....what a sweet girl I am if I do say so myself. I love to talk to you with my sweet tiny voice, get lots of pets and give lots of purrs, and follow you so I know exactly what you're doing and can help you out. Do you need my help? Ask about me and i'll be glad to come home with you and help with everything you do. Oh, and i'll give you tons of love, too.

Notes from Home
I can't believe Lola (Frosty) has been with us for 6 months already. It feels like she has been part of my home forever. She is a great cat. She enjoys sitting in the nook near the bird feeders and watching the birds. She sleeps under the kitchen counter on the bar stools so she is out of sight yet can hear everything that is happening. She loves to lay on papers and snuggle in bed at night. She greets me or who ever is coming is coming in the back door. She can hear the garage door go up so she knows someone will soon come through the door. She has done a great job with her litter box. I live in the woods and we have some mice and chipmunks. She has already caught a mouse and a chipmunk. She loves her scratch pad and will let me trim her nails without any fear. She is a member of our family. She and our golden retriever are friends. My son dates a lady that has a degree in animal sciences. She gets so excited when she comes over. She can sense she is an animal lover. She calls her "kitty" and Lola responds. Lola has a wonderful life full of all the love she wants.

If you ever have a siamese that needs a foster home in my area. I'd take a female into my home.



Frosty is now Lola. She is so tiny that I called her "little one" and that became Lola. She was timid at first but is stepping right into the role a cat diva. She loves it and hasn't had a single accident. The dog liked her food so we set it on the dryer and she enjoys sitting up there and looking down on the dog The dog has accepted her into the home nicely. Lola is friendly and intelligent. Lola loves sitting in windows. She's a cuddler but has yet to find her siamese cat voice. I knew she felt at home when she dropped her catnip mouse on my face early Saturday morning before I was ready to wake up. We played fetch until she was ready to go back to sleep in bed with me. She's a retriever. so funny. She uses her scratch pad and hasn't touched the furniture. She apparently likes birthday cake. It was covered and on the counter but this morning the wrap had been removed and a corner had been nibbled on. She's in her forever home.

Click on me today (and JaiJai too if you want) and we can be in your home in about 2 weeks. We've completed all our "get ready to go to a new home" requirements and now we're ready to come home. Just imagine, the void in your home can be filled with love, companionship, and entertainment. We're already the ideal pair, so no integration issues here.

I'm an elegant lady, playful, loving, well-mannered and just generally fun to be around. I mastered the litter box back when I was a kitten, so no worries there. What are you waiting for?

10/8/16 I'm doing fabulous! And I look fabulous! I trained my parents to brush me on demand - at least twice a day. I've also made it clear that even after all these years under no circumstances do I liked to be picked up! I still like to play, watch birds, eat (I'm just right for my height and big bones) and sleep in my special chair. I have to keep my brother Coda in line, though. He sometimes forgets that sisters always go first, get the best view, biggest snack and most attention. I also decided that someone with my elegance and beauty deserved a fancier name so I now will only answer to "Cantonio."

Hi,

I am Coda and I am doing just great. The first couple weeks we gave these people the stand off treatment to see if they could take the cool treatment. Well they continued to love my sister and me despite our behavior so we decided to show our true lovely selves this week.
These grown ups are so happy now. We let them pet us and hold us and jump in their lap. They even gave us our own floor in the house, imagine that, my sister and I have our own floor. A bedroom and a den and a reading room but best of alll ----- are own bathroom --- no more sharing.
Thankyou Thank you , Siames Rescue Center for a Great Home with loving parents
10/8/16 Still lovin' it here. I'm going great. Once in a while my sister Cantonio gets a little bossy and I just need some quiet time. Just love to be brushed, look out window at birds, play with the dangle toys, climb up the condos and have a special treat. I've managed to keep my figure lean, too. Coda

DALLY
Ok folks, this is getting to be a bit ridiculous now. I've been here with Foster Meowm for over a year now and I'm still waiting on my furever home ! What's the problem ?

Sure, I'm not one of those little kittens that you see on almost every page. Nope, actually I'm much, much better. Yes, they're cute but they do grow up you know. And unlike a kitten, with an adult like me you know exactly what purrsonality you're going to get. And I'm not a little hellion climbing your curtains and getting into all kinds of mischief either.

What ? I have diabetes and you don't want a cat with medical issues ? Why not ? My diabetes is controlled by insulin injections which I don't mind at all. How many of you can say you don't have any medical issues ? At least mine are identified and treatable and I plan to live a long, long time. How would you feel if your families didn't want you because you're diabetic or have high blood pressure or heart problems ? Same difference.

Yes, Foster Meowm keeps telling me that my furever home is out there somewhere, but being the #1 cover girl this long is a bit depressing. I keep seeing all the other fosters come and go that aren't half as nice as I am and I'm still here.

Won't you take a chance on an older gal who only wants to love and be loved. Go ahead ! Hit that Ask About Me button and Foster Meowm will get right back to you.

Hi, I'm Willow. I've got a sad tale to tell. I've been out on my own, without even my front claws to defend myself or to catch food, for a long time. The fleas got me so bad this hot summer that I chewed most of the fur off of my back, tail and tummy. No one would help me. I started hanging around a gas station in Cumberland, Virginia just hoping for some scraps to live on. Last month the nicest lady stopped for gas and just couldn't stand to see me like this... I was a scabby skinny mess. She scooped me up and helped to get me into rescue. I am sooooo happy to be safe and loved again. If you're looking for a best friend to cuddle up with this fall... you don't need to look any further. I know how lucky I am and will love you the rest of my life.

My new home is exciting! I now have an older brother (Grayson) and older sister, (Christabella) who I'm really trying to get to know better. Grayson follows me around to make sure I don't break the rules (counter jumping, breaking stuff...the usual no-no's for cats!), but sometimes it kinda gets on my nerves to have his hulking shadow behind me. I did go up to him on the sunroom the other day and since he was napping in his big bed, I thought I'd see what his mood was like...we actually touched noses! Pretty soon, I am thinking I might sneak into that big bed and snuggle with him! We'll see...

As for my sister, Christabella, she and I did have a scuffle, but it really was NOT my fault! Mum was playing "Dingly dangly" toy (string toy on a stick!) with me and I was just watching and waiting...and then Christabella walked in the room and attacked the dingly dangly! I didn’t see her and she scared the bejeebas out of me! I thought she was attacking me and the next thing I know, we are tussling. THEN, big brother Grayson came in to tell me to back off and I ran and hid (he isn't very good at finding me...I was only sitting on a dining room chair! jeez). Turns out, in my panic, I did bite sister...oops. She has been staying in Mum's room now, but I keep telling her how sorry I am. I hope she forgives me. She seems nice and if she’d ever forgive me, I think we’d have fun! She sure has a LONG memory though!

The food is great here! Sometimes, I sneak Grayson's portion too..hey, you snooze, you lose! Truth is, I am doing them a favor, as they’re a little chunky and I’m so slim and trim! I am slowly gaining weight and my fur has mostly grown back. I love to sleep on the back of Mum's TV watching chair. When she is sitting there, her head makes the best foot rest for my hind legs! :) Mummy doesn't seem to mind and reaches back to pet me throughout her program. Now that it is colder, she turns her lap blanket on and I love all that heat and snuggle with her while she brushes me.

All in all, I really love my new forever home and Mum and her brother seem to like me a lot too! (I didn't even realize that I do like guys...don't know why I was so scared of them before, but my Uncle Stephen is really nice and I like to follow him around!). Mummy’s uncle came to visit and I liked him a lot too, so guess I do like fellas just fine!

I sure am thankful for my new home and family! Thank you Siamese Rescue and a special thanks to my Foster Meowmy, Belinda.

Love, Patrick (formerly Willow)

Drat, my update disappeared. Let's try again, shall we?

Meowmy gave me special treats last night in celebration of my 3 year "Cativersary"! My life here with Meowmy is so wonderful and I've even grown fond of my brother, Grayson, and am still fond of chasing (torturing) my sis, Christabella. Typical little brother!

I often think of my wonderful Foster Meowmy, Belinda, and special rescue Meowmy, Janice. They gave me so much love and the chance to meet my furever Meowmy! Kitty kisses to you both!

Lots of love, Patrick St. Fraser Waller

LUCINDA
Lucinda is a beautiful Lilac point Siamese cat who was returned to the area shelter that she had been previously adopted from 8 years ago. Her owners returned her because they had adopted 2 additional cats that were picking on Lucinda (trapping her in the covered litter box).

She is a nice cat who no longer needs be placed as a single cat, since she no longer has dental problems and has integrated with my family cats.

STAR
Just plain terrified.

It rains, I'm terrified.
Someone yells, I'm terrified.
Someone moves too quickly, I'm terrified.
Someone looks at me the wrong way, I'm terrified.

Is there a Rescuer out there for me? We're really not sure.

I need a home to go into where I can just be. Not only just be me, but just be. I am fine in the box, fine with my eating habits. I want to live without infringement on my territory or space for as long as I need. No touching, no holding, no petting - but slow blinks would be okay. Then, one day, six months from now, I may trust you. But until then, hands off.

Understood that makes me pretty impossible to adopt out :( The thought of staying here forever makes me even more terrified :(
Notes from Home
9/27/12 - So far Star is making good baby steps to settling in - she's actually done some exploring (usually at night when I'm sleeping or during the day when I'm at work). She surprised me this morning by coming out from under the bed in the spare bedroom and watching me do things while I was getting ready for work. I was able to take a couple of pictures this morning as she sat in the middle of the floor in the spare bedroom LOOKING at me! It's going to take a lot of time, but I'm already pleased in the progress of just 2 days having her here with me.

9/27/12 (later on) - OMG - she just came into the living room, sniffed my finger, let me move to a different chair without running away or hissing, then sniffed my finger again before hissing and leaving! Talk about amazing baby steps here! I really didn't expect this tonight! I really think there is hope for a bright future with Star!

9/30/12 - Star is settling in, but is still frightened. It will take time, but I'm still seeing improvement. She has ventured out into the living room and kitchen area while I'm home, but doesn't want to be touched yet. At least she doesn't hiss or growl when I go into the spare bedroom - under that bed seems to be her "safe zone" right now, but she comes out to eat and use the litter box (locations in different parts of my condo). She's a good kitty!

10/1/12 - Star is getting more curious and interested in checking me out so she can decide if I'm okay to associate with. Last night late and again this morning she wandered into the kitchen and living room and sat down to observe me. She's still not ready to be petted, and hisses when I get too close for her comfort, but she's showing more curiosity. She was actually running around last night (playful running) while I was in bed - many baby steps, but each day I see a little bit of improvement in her.

10/5/12 - Star continues to improve every day. She isn't ready to be petted or held yet (no surprise there), but is spending more time out in the living room with me and has eaten and used the litter box while I'm in the living room which I think shows some increasing trust and comfort around me. She isn't comfortable yet with not having an escape route, i.e. - doesn't want to be in a bedroom/bathroom/kitchen and have me walk in while blocking the way out. I am still encouraged with her progress though - I knew it would take a long time to win her trust, but she's doing well.

10/10/12 - Star continues to improve daily. Since this past Sunday she's started getting in my lap while I'm relaxing in my Lazy Boy watching TV in the evening. The first time she did it she let me scratch her head a little bit before getting overstimulated and running off. However, she did come back to my lap a couple more times. Her body language says that she really wants some attention and love, but she's also still frightened and unsure of me yet. I still can't just reach out and pet her, but she's making good progress. She's being a good cat - baby steps to improvement are always welcome with her.

10/14/12 - Star continues to improve and relax. I've now been able to scritch her on the head a few times, though only for short bits and only at her initiating the contact. Last night as I was watching tv she got on my lap (which has been a nightly occurance for a week now) without as much hesitation, and she even relaxed enough to snooze for a while. Until the tv show I had on had the sound of a smoke alarm going off in the background, that is. But her nap lasted about 20 minutes even so! I love her little baby steps of improvement! She's being a good cat, and is slowly acting more like a "normal" cat. She's even let me rub her back (from head to tail) while on my lap this evening in addition to some head scritching at the same time. I'm glad I brought her home - her purrsonality is starting to shine!

10/25/12 - Star is continuing to improve by leaps and bounds! She's getting more confident about asking for attention and getting in my lap in the evening, and has started jumping on my bed at night looking for attention (even though this wakes me up). She's also gracing me with her purring, both while chilling out in my lap and on the bed at night getting attention. She still doesn't want me to pick her up or reach down and randomly pet her - the attention getting has to be on her terms still but that's okay. She is coming out of her shell faster than I thought she would, and getting much better than the little scaredy cat she was when I first brought her home. Also, if I drag around the wand toy that came in her bag of goodies - she'll chase after it and "catch" it. She seems to enjoy going after it like a little wild crazy thing if I drag it around for her. Typical cat behavior! She's getting better at letting me pet her and rub down her back, but it still has to be on her terms - I just have to be careful about watching her body language since she still gets over stimulated after a while and has to go chill out away from me.

11/12/12 - Star continues to improve; she has spent part of the last couple of nights sleeping on my bed with me, curled up on a blanket at the foot of the bed. She is getting pushy about attention, and purrs when on my lap. She's even taken naps on my lap which are deep enough for dreaming (along with the twitching muscles and feet). She's really becoming quite the good girl ! There's still a ways to go but she's doing really well, and is worth having around!

12/1/12 - Last Sunday while I was at SCRC dropping off Cosette I purchased a Milly bed for Star. Up to a few minutes ago she either ignored it or just sniffed at it. She is now sitting in it! Yippee!!! Little steps, I know, but she's a wonderful kitty, and I'm glad I brought her home!

12/17/12 - Star is continuing to improve - you wouldn't believe this is the same scaredy cat I initially took home. With the holidays fast approaching, I feel like I got an early present in her. She's really becoming a shining star (pun intended!). I know I still have some work with trying to get her used to other people (which I really haven't tried yet), but she is a wonderful sweet kitty!

1/4/13 - To all the volunteers involved in rescueing Star: THANK YOU!! She has turned into a really wonderful sweet kitty, and is getting very relaxed and trusting with me. Sometimes when she's getting relaxed in my lap, she'll get up to my chest/shoulders purring in my ears. She's also touched my face twice with a soft paw while purring (2 different days), and she loves attention. She's definitely being a typical meezer. There's still a bit more work to do with her, but she is such a sweet kitty I can't possibly give her up! I'm very happy to have her, and glad I gave her a chance at a home. Something about her when I saw her at SCRC, I just knew she deserved a home and that she'd appreciate it, which she does.

2/2/13 - Star is such a good kitty - very much demanding of attention and play time. She still doesn't play with toys by herself - she wants me to throw them so she can chase and attack them. She also likes when I drag around a wand toy so she can pounce and attack it. She's spending more time on my bed with me at night now, and is so loving and sweet. I still can't believe how far she's come in just over 4 months. She's practically a velcro kitty with me now - still shy with strangers but that's okay. I need to do some work with introducing her to other people, but don't mind if she doesn't get all lovey with them. She's really a wonderful cat friend! Sometimes when she wants to play she'll be under a chair and will swat at my ankles when I walk by her, so OF COURSE we have to do some playing! She occasionally will investigate some catnip but doesn't go all overboard with it like some cats do. I'm glad I chose her to take home with me!

2/8/13 - Star's been occasionally doing some butt wiggles when we play, so that's a good thing to see - she's a wonderful kitty and really does want the attention. I still can't believe that other people didn't want to take her home - maybe they were deterred by how scared she was at SCRC. I'm glad I was able to bring her home - she's such a great little kitty! She seems to know that she's got a good thing going on at my place! She really does like being spoiled and loved on!

2/28/13 - Star is doing well, even though she still has some stress issues and overgrooming going on. She doesn't play on her own with toys, but loves some interactive playtime with me throwing toys for her to chase and attack as well as chasing a wand toy around. She hasn't gotten to the point yet of rubbing on my legs, but loves to curl up in my lap while I'm watching TV where she'll purr for a while and dose off for short naps. She's up to being on my lap for 1.5 - 2 hours at a time now, and spends a portion of each night sleeping on my bed with me. Sometimes she's curled up at the foot of the bed, and sometimes will be curled up near my side. She lets me know when she wants to play or get some attention, and has the sweetest little voice. Mostly she chirps or trills, but sometimes it's just a little meow. If she's wanting attention she will rub her head on my hand or fingers - she's usually wanting to wake me up during the night or early morning for some attention (with chirps and purrs while I'm still in bed!). I'm pleased with her progress - considering I've had her less than 6 months she's really doing amazingly well! She also likes to look out of windows to see what's going on outside - there's usually somebody outside walking their dog or something else going on. When the weather is nice enough to have the windows open (yes, I have good screens so she can't escape!), she likes to sniff the fresh air and keep an eye on the birds in the trees on either side of my building. Typical cat stuff!

3/22/13 - Things are still going very well with Star, and she's now showing a tiny bit if curiosity about what's outside the door of my condo whenever I leave for work/errands or come back in. I'm not letting her out though, she'll just have to be curious. Next month should be interesting, since I've got an appointment for her with the vet for a general checkup and shots/bloodwork. I'm not sure how she'll do with it, but we'll see. I'm trying to stay positive that we'll get through it without much trouble.

4/11/13 - Well, took Star to the vet this evening for a checkup and her shots. She did very well - not happy about getting blood drawn or getting her shots (lots of growling), but was wrapped in a towel for safety - she grudgingly let the vet check her out without any growling or hissing, just lots of wiggling around. Since she's still doing a lot of stress grooming with much hair loss, the vet recommended a change in diet (hypoallerginic)/dishes for food and water, along with a change in litter. She's also got some ear drops for her ears (had been doing a lot of ear scratching lately) since she's developing a yeast infection in her ears. She's actually liking the new wet food (duck and pea by Royal Canin), and I've got some of the dry duck and pea kibble mixed in with the other dry food I"d been giving her so she can get used to it.- I'll be trying a sample of prednisolone chewable to see if she'll eat it. If she does, we'll be trying that as a way to cut down on the overgrooming (possibly lots of itching causing it). The vet was very good with her (I've used him for years and really like him) - he's good with difficult cats, and I've had my share of difficult cats. Just thought you'd all like the good news about her first visit to my vet - I was nervous since I knew she'd had lots of issues prior to me getting her and had been really tough to get treated during the intake to the SCRC. She's doing really well, is such a good cat, and I do love her very much!

4/12/13 - In case anybody is wondering, Star is still scared of thunder. We had some thunderstorms roll through last night/early this morning, and she did NOT like the sound of the thunder at all. She ended up jumping off the bed and hiding under it. Oh well, that's not a big thing - at least she still has a safe home with all the necessities of life! And I found out that she's not liking the eardrops to clear up her ears. I just need to find a good way to treat her ears so the infection clears up.

4/24/13 - Star is still doing so well, her meezer personality is really coming out with all the talking and demanding attention. This morning she even graced me with a couple soft taps on my face with a front paw, and last night she touched my face with her nose and almost licked my face while in bed. She is the most amazingly sweet little kitty, and very loving! She's still not keen on strangers, especially guys, but that's okay. She does show some interest in one of my sisters, but isn't quite into being petted by her yet. The change in diet seems to agree with her (this is the first wet food she's really into eating since I brought her home), and between the diet change and prednisolone chews the excessive grooming has greatly diminished. Now for her hair to grow back in where she'd licked it all off - that'll take some time. I'm so happy that I gave her a chance, and she seems to be really happy about it as well (lots of purrs).

5/11/13 - Star is still doing very well. She has now started coming into my bathroom with me while I'm on the toilet, which is something she hadn't done until this past week. It's a very small bathroom, so I think she's feeling much more comfortable with me to do that. I know, it doesn't sound like much, but another little baby step for her in her healing process. She is really a talker now, and very much into getting attention. She's becoming very "in your face" about getting attention - she's such a wonderful kitty!

6/14/13 - This has been quite a day for Star - I'm getting my heat pump system replaced so there have been 2 strange guys in and out all day so far (currently just after 2pm and they showed up at 8am) working on it. She's spent all day so far either under my bed or under the bed in the guest room. The last time they went outside for a few minutes she came out from under the bed in the guest room, checked out their stuff that was still in here, then went in my bedroom to eat a bit of food (I had moved her food, water, and litter box in my bedroom so she could have easier access to it without going past the strange guys). When the guys came back in, she slinked quickly back into the guest room giving them the hairy eyeball but not hissing or growling at them. She's back to hiding under the bed. Good baby steps with 2 strange guys in the house! She'll be fine once they are done with the work and go home - at that point she'll be able to relax and get back to what's normal around here! At least the weather is really nice here today so I can leave all the windows open without suffering from heat and humidity! Addition: it didn't take long for Star to come out and get herself back to normal after the workmen left. She did really well with strangers in the place for the day, even though she hid pretty much the whole time!

7/6/13 - Star continues to be a lovely addition in my home, and loves to talk (chirps, meows, purrs) and get attention. She still doesn't want me to just pick her up and hold her, doesn't rub against my legs yet like a lot of cats will, but does occasionally rub against my fingers when she wants to be petted or scratched. She does still occasionally get overstimulated and attack, but that's happening less often than it did initially. I'm curious as to how she might get along with other cats, and would appreciate input from fosters she may have stayed with prior to arriving at the SCRC or how she may have interacted with other cats at the center. I know she was isolated at the center and wasn't too keen on people being around her due to being so frightened while there. Thoughts? I was thinking of possibly taking in another cat from SCRC who needs an angel but don't want to stress out Star if she doesn't get along with other cats.

8/8/13 - Star has been the most amazingly loving and lovable cat - she's quite vocal with chirps, meows, and purrs, and is definitely letting me know when she wants attention. Really the queen bee at my home, and not ashamed to let me know that she is the top cat! She has turned out so wonderfully, and I'm so glad I gave her a chance at a home! She seems to be very happy. She did quite well at the vet's office (I've had her there twice), other than not wanting anybody to draw blood or clean out her ears, both of which needed some cleaning. She does NOT want to be taken anywhere - she's been quite vocal about it when I've taken her outside to my car and then on the whole drive to the vet's office. Yes, poor thing is forced to be in her carrier (oh, the insult of it all!), even though I know it's for safety reasons. Besides, I don't want her to run away!

10/5/13 - Star is still progressing well, and is a very sweet kitty. She still has her moments when she will nip at me, but that doesn't happen very often any more. She's very vocal, as well as getting more playful. I've actually caught her playing with 1 of her toys all by herself a few times while I'm home (don't know if she's doing it while I'm at work) which is new since up to now I've had to throw the toys around for her to chase. She still wants me to throw the toys for her though which she see seems to enjoy. She's getting more bold in telling me when she wants to play by swatting at my ankles and feet as I walk by her. I'll be trying something new with her at thanksgiving - my whole family will be out of town that week so I'll have to board her at a kennel. I've used this particular one many times before with other cats, so don't worry about the care she'll get. I'm just nervous about her reaction. Hopefully I'm worried for no reason. :)

10/7/13 - I keep forgetting to mention that Star is so relaxed now when on my lap that she bathes herself, and has had quite a few naps where she slept so soundly on my lap that she had the twitchy feet and legs (as if running) and a bit of lip smacking and licking while sleeping. She's definitely showing a lot of the typical Meezer qualities with her play activity, wanting attention, and lots of talking/purring. All of those who were involved with her prior to me adopting her would not believe this is the same cat who was so withdrawn and scared at the center. I'm very pleased with how she is doing! She's still not used to other people coming into my condo, but she does well and behaves herself. She usually just hides under my bed - whenever somebody strange gets on the floor to look at her and talk to her, she'll look back at them but doesn't hiss or growl; she's not secure enough to come out much when strangers are around.

11/13/13 - just a note to let you all know what a wonderful cat Star is, and she's so much fun to have around. She's really gotten into playing and running around my condo. She definitely lets me know when she wants to play, and does some playing on her own. She has one toy mouse that she prefers over the other mice and toys that she has. She loves sitting in the window looking out at things going on outside. She also gets "perturbed" if I'm gone longer than normal, and has to tell me about it when I do get home. Obviously she believes she is queen of the home and I am her slave. She is a wonderful cat and a real lovey to have around - it's hard to believe that nobody else wanted to give her a chance, so I'm glad I could adopt her.

12/1/13 - well, just picked Star up from the kennel where I boarded her last week (was out of town) - she was in a really foul mood, and though she ate, drank, and used the litter box just fine, they said she was royally pissed all week and had been marked as mean so that nobody would get hurt. It took us about 10-15 minutes to get her from the cage to the carrier because she was being so nasty even to me. Now that we're home though, she's telling me all about it and looking for attention and loving on. I get the impression that she's glad to be home. Even though I'm thinking that I should just get a pet sitter the next time I'm out of town for an extended time (along with the rest of my family), they did say I could bring her back if I needed their services again (after multiple apologies from me for her bad behavior). At least now I know how she's going to be there. Usually when I'm gone for a few days I'll get a family member to stop by my home to care for her there and she's fine. It's just this time we were all going to be gone so I couldn't do that.

12/9/13 - Star has settled down nicely now that she's back home. It took a few days, but she is back to normal. I suspect she was just really terrified at the kennel - too many strange people, sounds, and being in a cage. I think it's best to just get a pet sitter the next time I'm out of town along with my whole family. One of my neighbors may be willing to do it - I also plan to check with my vet about a reliable and trust worthy one. At least at home Star is in her little comfort zone. She really is a wonderful cat with me - she is even playing with a couple of cat toys on her own now, and being more obvious when she wants me to play. She's so cute at it - swatting my ankles as I walk by with no claws is her little "invitation" to play and throw a toy for her to chase. I still enjoy having her around, and she seems to be really happy to have a home.

1/2/14 - Star continues to be a wonderful kitty, and is really getting more into playing with some of her toys on her own now along with wanting me to throw them around for her. She's come so far in the time that I've had her, and I'm so pleased with her progress. She's much more quiet at night now, and spends most of the night sleeping on my bed with me. Oh yeah, it's HER bed that she allows me to sleep on with her! She's so cute about getting me up in the morning, especially if she thinks I'm not getting up at the right time. She's a typical meezer with her talking to me, and she purrs a lot as well. She's really a very sweet and lovable kitty.

2/21/14 - Star is still doing very well, and has shown great strides in her play activity. She definitely wants to play a lot, and is doing some playing on her own now with the cat toys. She still wants a lot of the interactive play time, and is not shy about indicating the desire to play. She usually will grab my leg with both front paws, or bat at my foot or ankle as I walk by her or she walks by me. If I'm laying on my back in bed, she now will curl up on my chest with her head near my face and purr loudly, sometimes touching my face softly with a front paw. If I'm gone longer than normal during the day, she'll come out to greet me when I come home and chatter a bit. She is a real sweet kitty!

5/28/14 - Star is moving ahead with yet another huge baby step - she will now occasionally let me rub her belly! She usually stretches out on the bed next to me with lots of purring, then rolls over on her back with feet up in the air and the cute little head rolls. At this point I can rub on her belly calmly while talking to her (about how sweet and pretty she is, of course!). I do have to be careful, since she doesn't put up with it for more than a few minutes before having to grab me with claws and chomp on my hand, but it's been wonderful that she'll let me do it!

9/30/14 - the 2 year mark has passed uneventfully, and Star is doing quite well. She has become quite sweet and lovable with me, but is still reserved with strangers. She still tends to hide under the bed, or just stay away from them. That's okay though - she is a smart kitty and knows that she's in her forever home with me. She is a wonderful cat! And did I mention that she's very smart and beautiful? Of course she is, just like a meezer should be! She's become very much a normal cat since coming to live with me - I don't think she'll be the lap cat that loves everybody all the time, but I think she's wonderful and a very good cat. She definitely enjoys living the good life, being spoiled/loved on, and being taken care of. I'm glad I took a chance with her.

11/14/14 - Star is continueing to make progress, though it's much more subtle now. She's actually doing some playing on her own now, and is occasionally rubbing her head all over the catnip banana. It's great to see her acting so much like a normal meezer! She does love attention and play time. She also occasionally lets me rub her belly (amazing trust with that) - I do have to be careful doing this since she gets over stimulated by it and won't let me do that for long. She's always talking and purring, normal for meezers. Her meow is not what you normally think of as the meezer voice - it's a combination of a meow and a chirp - it's normal for her though, and she doesn't hesitate to talk about whatever's on her mind! I still think she's a wonderful cat.

12.23.14 - Star is turning into the most wonderful, sweet, and playful kitty. She's doing a lot more playing by herself now, and is very obviously asking for attention and play time with me. Her meezer personality is really coming out as she gets more comfortable and relaxed. It's amazing to me that nobody else was seriously inquiring about her - just my good fortune though, since I've got a cat that is so amazingly lovable and certainly seems to appreciate somebody giving her a chance at a home and some love. I'm very glad I was able to bring her home.

8/7/15 - Star continues to do well, with just some health glitches that are being dealt with the help of my vet. She's really a diva now - whenever I'm changing the sheets on my bed she has to "supervise" to make sure I do it correctly! She still hides when a thunderstorm comes through or when a person comes over that she doesn't know, and is pretty nasty at the vet's office (still has the fear and trust issues), but is a good cat when I get her back home. She's very lovable, and still wants the love and attention every day when I get home from work. She's quite the talker, and has a wonderful purr. She definitely lets me know what's on her mind! I'm still very happy with her.

8/12/16 - well, good news and bad news here. The good news is that Star is such a wonderful cat, and I'm really glad I brought her home with me. She has turned into the most loving cat with a wonderful sweet purr, and she loves to get attention (on her own terms, of course). The bad news is that she has cancer - it's limited to the mammary glands at the moment. She had surgery last week to remove multiple lumps down the right side mammary glands (partial mastectomy essentially), with the lumps sent out to a lab for evaluation. I've just had a good talk with my vet, and we are on the same page as far as treatment. Basically, I'll just keep her at home with lots of spoiling and love until her quality of life seems to no longer good. The chemo and radiology treatments will be hideously expensive and my vet says there's no guarantee of her being cured (it may spread and get worse anyway). Star gets very stressed out overtime I have to take her to the vet for anything, so there's no sense in having her under extra stress on top of what she'll be going through with the cancer. She may still surprise me since there's no way to know how long she will live before I have to take her in for the last time. At least she will get lots of love up until that point, and she's got a forever home here with me, so that's a good thing. I'm still glad I brought her home with me!

8/17/16 - Star continues to be a sweet and loving cat - hard to believe she was that frightened cat at the center! Despite her health issues (both the cancer diagnosis and the hyperthyroid), she is thriving at my home and is very lovable. My vet doesn't see much point in going through the extensive treatments that could be done, since there's no guarantee that they would work - if you were to see her at home though, you'd never know that anything was wrong with her (other than she's a bit thinner than I'd like). She is behaving normally for her, and still wants to be loved on! She is definitely worth having around!

10/6/16 - It's hard to believe that Star has lived with me for 4 years now. She remains a wonderful, sweet, and lovable cat who definitely wants things done on her own terms. She's very vocal, and has a wonderful purr. This all despite a couple of serious medical issues that my vet is keeping an eye on. She is a wonderful cat, and I'm glad I brought her home with me. She definitely needed a stable home with consistency. I don't think she'll ever be totally over the fear and trust issues, but she is very much a changed (for the better) cat from what she was at the shelter.
