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.
6/4/17 As mentioned in Whally's update, this is my final for Zeke as well, unless anything noteworthy happens. Zeke is a very sweet boy. He loves lounging, which is one reason he is overweight. His lounge position is very relaxed with both front feet stretched out. He usually lies on a pillow, thinks attention is the most exciting thing, rolls around for bellyrubs and purrs loudly. I can put my face close to his, and he sniffs. When he gets up he wants me to follow him around for more attention. He is close to Whally, but occasionally likes to go off on his own somewhere else. He doesn't hide, unless strangers come to the house, and clearly is bonding with me well. I am very happy for them both. They enjoy themselves, prefer each other's company, which is to be expected, but really do like me, so all is well. O, the hair on his head has completely grown back of course, so he now looks quite handsome. Thank you for all you have done for these two. I was a little doubtful this would work out, to be honest, but patience and love will always do it in the end. They are home for life.
6/5 I completely forgot to mention that the mystery of why Zeke is a shredder is solved! He actually eats the paper he shreds because he has hairballs. I give him hairball remedy every day, which he eats from a dish, and hasn't touched any paper since.

SOMETIMES NELSON, BUT LEANING
Nelson is the King of Laid Back! He has no worries and simply goes with the flow. He is extremely affectionate and loves to make air biscuits. Because of his laid back personality, he would do well in a family with children. He showed me this week that he really likes dogs by headbutting my dog and then rubbing against her each time he saw her :) He also would do well with other cats. He is just as easy going as they come!

Notes from Home
Nelson continues to be a joy. His vet calls him Baby Face Nelson. He is healthy, playful and just loves people. Seems the more the better. Our grandkids love him too!

Baby face Nelson is doing great. Such a people cat! He loves company, very sociable. Even non-cat lovers (hard to understand but we know some) are won over by his charms. His new brother Tony tolerates him very well too. They even do the bookend thing on occasion.

Nelson, aka ROCCO, is the best. He has so much,personality! He runs to the door when we come home or to greet visitors. He even walks us to the door when we leave. We had several house guests this year and he was a big hit with everyone. We call him a puppy because he follows us all around the house. He and his adopted brother like their daily
play time too. We haven't found a toy yet that Rocco won't play with! He sleeps at the foot of our bed every night and
loves to watch the geckos from his screened porch. We consider ourselves very lucky to have found him. Thanks to everyone who made this match possible.

Rocco, formerly known as Nelson is our joy. Over the years we have had many cats but only Rocco runs to the door when he hears the doorbell. He loves all people! The year just flew by and we are thankful for his playful and friendly nature everyday. His favorite things are a torn paper bag to slide on and hide toys in and the cloth bag I bought for his toys that he has made into his bed. Every person is a friend and he is always ready to play! Thanks again for rescuing this charming, special boy!

I forgot to mention that Rocco has been to the vet twice. He was just in for his shots and other than a scheduled teeth cleaning, he is heathy. As with all things, he enjoys himself when other people are around and everyone fussing over him at the vet was lots of fun!

One year in and Tallulah (nicknamed Lula) is doing well! She comes when you call her name, loves to sit with us during the kids story time at night and enjoys sitting and/or wrestling with her cat brother Finn. She's still not one to be held but will sit with you (or on you) when she chooses and purrs a lovely song. Thank you again for letting her be part of our family!

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.
6/4/17 This will be my final update, unless something noteworthy happens. Cats have been with me for 3 months now, so we are getting to know each other and getting used to each other as well. Whally, the more outgoing of the 2 touched my face with his paw yesterday, got on my bed and played with my hand this morning. He is quite talkative, wants rubs and purrs loudly when I do. He gets so excited his tail hair stands out. They mostly are in my bedroom, very comfortably settled on my bed, with occasional forays running around after each other. There are places where they can look outside at the birds on my deck, and get fresh air from the open windows. To be sure they definitely cannot ever get out, I had a storm door installed, even though the living room is still not a favorite place to be. Eating well, drinking well, litterbox production is normal. Thank you all for what you do. This has been a very positive experience for me.

ELSA
I haven't been here at this place for long, but I am getting treated like the royalty I am. Myself and my other Princess sisters, Belle and Jasmine, came here a few days ago and are really liking it here. I like my sisters ok, but prefer to hang out with my foster Mom. I'm the sweetest, if I do say so myself, and love nothing more than to be loved and cuddled and carried around. Would love a home where I can snuggle with my favorite humans forever. If you're out there and want to hold me and love me forever, please ask about me.

Elsa is the queen of the house. She is the perfect fit and we are so in love with her!

She sleeps in my bed, on my husbands pillow:) She uses the litter box, eats, plays, and struts around the house with her tail up and looking totally confident. She likes everyone and is winning over our 8 year old male cat, Roscoe. She is always around him and trying to get him to play. He does for a while, but then needs a break. They play with toys together and run and chase.

We love that she demands lots of attention and wants to be held!!!

Are we allowed to post on your facebook page? I would love to share how happy we are and a few photos. Please let me know if that is approved.

I will try to provide updates on our very loved new family member. She is everything we hoped for and think she is perfect!


Elsa is everything we were hoping for! She likes everyone and has brought so much happiness to our family. We are blessed! I will most new photos soon. Thank you for bringing her into our lives!

Tomorrow is our 8 week anniversary of getting Elsa. She is loved more every day. She has her energy runs a few times a day, where she is as fast as a bullet. She runs on the top of her cat tree and is a blur of fur. She loves to play with her toys and our older cat, Roscoe.
After a run, she enjoys several naps throughout the day. Sometimes on a bed and other times being held like a baby or under a chin. If she has been sleeping alone, she runs to me and makes cute cat sounds, leaping onto my chest to nuzzle my nose and mouth. She acts as if we haven't seen her in years. That is one of my favorite things!!!
She is perfect!

We have had Elsa since July 2 and life before her is a distant memory. She is loved by everyone, even friends that visit. She loves to be held and nuzzle faces. She makes the rounds, at night, to rub noses and snuggle. She loves to play with toys and our other cat, Roscoe. She may be named for Elsa, from the movie, Frozen, but doesn't like the fall weather. Her favorite napping place is her basket on the climbing stand or on a lap. If I am on the couch, she comes to me, looks at my lap, and waits for me to get the blanket, then crawls under, onto my lap, and goes to sleep. We are so grateful to have her in our lives!! Thank you to everyone that brought her into our family. Her foster mom Joy and family provided her with such a great start! She is better than any match we could have hoped for. We love the Siamese Rescue!!!
We have been blessed to have Elsa for four months. She is a very loved and a happy cat. Guests coming to our home are welcomed with cat kisses. She is confident, loving, active, and talkative. She is the queen of our home and we feel so blessed to have her! Thank you!!!

I cannot believe that six months have passed since Elsa joined our family. She is so loved by every member of the family. We have no complaints and think her every move is adorable. She is everything we hoped for: friendly, vocal, needy, bossy, a true Siamese personality. We consider her a loved family member, not just a pet. We are so grateful to have her in our lives. Thank you for Elsa!

What a blessing Elsa is to our family! We can't believe she has been with us one year! She is everything we hoped for: loving, talkative, bossy, and a loved member of the family. We are so grateful to the Siamese Rescue for bringing her into our lives! Thank you!!!!!!

Elsa brings us so much joy. She is everything we were looking for: loving, vocal, bossy, lap loving, and bossy. She is with me all the time. Always going into different rooms, to see what I will do next. She crawls on my lap during the evening and sleeps on the bed/and or under the covers.
She became a big sister to our new rescue puppy, Bella Bear, who is part golden/lab. They are constantly together and doing great together. Our older male cat, Roscoe, is too mature for puppy training, but Elsa is always walking under Bella or finding some way to play. Don't worry, I am always there, too, to help teach proper play.
She is loved by all members of the familty and we are forever in your debt for bringing her into our lives. Merry Christmas 2015!

I cannot believe we have had Elsa for two years! We still think of her as a baby kitten. She is small and so playful. She is loved by everyone.
This year, we adopted a golden/lab puppy and they get along great. She wants to play with the puppy and our 9 year old male cat.
Everyday, she sits on my lap and has her special time. We have a strong bond and she doesn't want to share that time with anyone. I love her so much! Thank you for bringing her into our lives.

We are coming up on our 3 year anniversary. She has been a blessing each and every day. We love her personality, she is loving, bossy, talkative and demanding. She rules the house and all in in it! Sadly, we lost our male cat to kidney failure in May. We are hoping to add another cat soon. Elsa and Bella Bear, the golden/lab mix are friends, but she misses having another cat. We can't thank you enough for letting us add her to the family!! She is loved

I don't like loud scary noises like the clang of cage doors. When you see my tail and see the streak of fire down my tail, you will see where I got my name. I love to be pet and will come demand them so get ready! I should be ready to home by 4/29/17.

Hi Amy and Julie. Well, TJ has successfully wound us around his little paw and
we now belong to him instead of the other way around, and he calls all the shots. He is active, but not a terror. A very curious, active, sweet, purring and loving kitten. His ear problem is healed, his eyes are much better (I guess he will always have "dirty eyes" (dark matter in the inner corners) like Beau has always had but I think that's because they are white cats so the matter always shows. In any case, both the boys submit to having their eyes wiped everyday so they look beautiful and handsome. We are completely happy with our sweet little guy (both of them, actually) and we want to thank you and the SCRC for all that you do to find good homes for these wonderful creatures. I'm sending some pictures.

Boy am I glad to be out of that shelter place!!!!

The lights were too bright, it was loud and noisy, the food was bad..... And then this doctor stuck me with needles, took my blood, put this smelly stuff on my neck - yucky, yucky, yucky!!!

Thank goodness foster mom came and got me out of there:)

I haven't told her much about myself yet, except that I love to purr, head butt, and have my chin scratched! Stay tuned for more as foster mom and I get to know each other!

Foster mom had a really hard time taking my picture because I just like to rub and roll all over everything!

RHAEGAR
I'm a typical, high energy kitten. I love to run, pounce on toys, snuggle with you, run some more, pounce on the featherwand, meow, meow, meow, and eat my kitten food.

I need a playmate either a young cat already at home or another kitten.

Since I am so very curious, make sure those breakable knick-knacks are locked away, all those houseplants are hanging or put outside and cabinets with cleaners are tightly closed.
Notes from Home
So I drove home yesterday with these two new humans. One of em kept looking back at me saying how cute I was. I am pretty adorable. They call me Rhaegar. One said it's a Prince, the other does not like it too much, but she calls me by the name anyway.
It was a long drive and then I got to my new home. It was a little scary at first. The humans put my transport crate down and there was another kitty. She seemed nice but she hissed at me and went away. I think she is not happy with me being here right now. The human said I am her little brother. She gave them a look as if to say "Who said I needed one?" I am sure she will come around.
The humans have a see through door to the room I am staying in. The other kitty can see me but she can't be with me yet. I was still a bit scared and was hiding under the bed. There were a lot of toys on the floor. They kept whizzing by me and I finally couldn't resist and had to investigate.
I really like the small cat tree. It has a little mouse attached on the bottom level and a bird that chirps when you move it on the top level. I REALLY like that bird.
I ate my dinner and used the bathroom like a good boy. The humans are so easily amused. I eat, they think it's an accomplishment. I use the bathroom and they are watching. Seriously, I have no privacy. Back to the bird. I REALLY like that bird. I jumped on the bed and cuddled with the human, for about 5 min, and then I remembered the bird. So I attacked it again. Then back on the bed, chasing their feet. Oh, and they have long hair. That is fun to play with too, especially when they try to fall asleep. I let them sleep for about an hour and a half at 7 am. I was tired and needed a nap. I am actually pretty tired now. I have to rest for a new game with the bird tonight.

I think I like my new home even though the humans are no fun at night.

Rhaegar


Update 5/20/2017:
Tomorrow will be one week since I moved in with the new humans. They're OK, I guess. They play with me for 2 hours before they go to bed. It makes me a little sleepy too. I like to sleep on top of their heads, or on top of the pillow so I can look down on their insignificant bodies. I got a bunch of toys to play with. One of them puts the squeeky bird in the closet at night. Such party poopers!
They removed the screen door to the bedroom and now I can run around the apartment. My older sister, Patches (they call her Patchy Poo, or just Poo,.. or sometimes Poo Bear, don't ask, they're silly) lives in the other rooms. She lets me touch noses, but when I do a fly-by and go for her tail, she hisses sometimes. It gets less every day though. Today, she was sitting on the coffee table, being all high and mighty, and then she started flicking her tail. I took that as an invitation to catch it. If it moves, I have to chase it, bite it, grab it. That's just how it works. She should know! She didn't hiss at me when I did it, but she softly tapped me on the head. I fell over and just grabbed my tail.
Today I also imitated a bear. One of the humans came into the bathroom and I was in there, nosing around. So I stood on my hind legs, put my claws in the air, and swiped at her legs. She started laughing. Not the response a bear would get. I saw it on TV. Guess I need to learn to growl to sound more intimidating. My little chirps just don't do it.
I found a great cat tree in the other bedroom. My sister showed me. I like the little hammocks. I go all the way to the top and look down. I like to bite it too, just cuz I can.

I think I'll stay here for a while. It's not that bad. I bet by the end of next week, I can get my sister to play with me.

Rhaegar

Update 5/31/2017
I had my check up last week. I know, should have told you about it right away. Everything was good, and the doctor said I am soooo cute. She used that many o's. My humans were beaming. I like how they take credit for my cuteness. As if they did something. Humans, weird creatures. But they serve me well, so I'll let it slide. I am now a little over 4 lbs of cuteness. My humans will keep an eye on my canines to make sure that my adult teeth come in correctly. The lady doctor gave me some worm medicine, and I have to come back in 2 weeks for another weight check.

I've been playing with my sister more, and she's playing with me now too. Sometimes when I play too rough, she puts her ears in F-16 wing mode and throws me down. She does it gently though.

One of the humans plays hockey and the equipment bag is sitting in the room with the big cat tree. Me and my sister played King of the Hill on it. Well, she was on top of it, and when I tried to get on, she knocked me down. She thinks she rules the roost...for now.

I hope you enjoy the pictures of me and my sister playing.

Rhaegar

MERLIN
I am quite a shy cat who is going to require what Aunt Siri terms 'tough love'. That means someone who can get down on their hands and knees and reach under beds and cabinets to pull me out, sit with me on the floor in their lap, and repeat, repeat, repeat. I am doing well on a special single protein diet which is over the counter and which is helping some possible food sensitivities, so will need to stay on this diet (wet and dry, Natural Balance Duck and Green Pea).

Notes from Home
Hello all! Here is our 2 week update on Merlin. He is eating well and is very good with his litter box. He still hides when we come into the room but as soon as he recognizes us he is out for petting and he gives kisses with the roughest cat tongue I have ever seen. He is still a big chicken when it comes to the rest of the house. He plays with his toys and we can hear him when we are down stairs as he is chasing them and running in our bedroom. he sleeps with us most of the night but will wake one of us up with that tongue. Hopefully we can coax him into exploring the rest of the house soon. It took the first whole week just to get him out of the bathroom into the bedroom. If he is hiding under something he will come out if I call him. His skin is doing great and his fur is filling in where he had earlier concerns. Vet visit in a couple weeks. He likes Blue Buffalo Turkey Treats and just shaking the bag gets him running! We have him on his original diet and no plans to change it he cleans his plate and seems to do well with it!

Foster Notes

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
ISIS
Don't you need a lap warmer in this chilly weather? If you do, I'm your gal because I simply adore laps and belly rubs!

Foster Mom says there is absolutely nothing not to like about me. She says I'm a treasure.

Oh and don't let my age scare you. I passed my blood test with flying colors. No sign of any problems whatsoever.

I am all ready to go home!
Notes from Home
It’s been a year since Isis came home! Isis continues to bring us joy each and every day. She just had her bi-annual check-up and her blood work came back perfect. Besides scheduling a dental cleaning, she has been given a perfect bill of health. Everyone at our Vet’s office loves her and refers to her as the perfect patient. At this point we believe she is around 11ish years old. She is Queen of the Castle and continues to roam the entire house as she pleases, happy as can be. We believe she purrs even louder than her big brother, Tobra, which is quite a feat. She can often be found in my lap (or on my keyboard) while I work, snoozing in a dog bed, lounging on the loveseat with our dog Dunkin, curled up in one of our laps watching television or snuggling under the covers with us at night. She has no fear of either of our dogs and interacts with them often. She still LOVES to play and will play with your hand, a cat toy, a dog toy, a dog’s tail, a sock, a shoe – you name it, it’s game for being playfully smacked. Her jumping abilities continue to improve. Her love for all things food has not diminished and she knows pretty much precisely when it’s breakfast and dinner time and has no problem reminding us should we forget. We initially wanted to adopt a younger cat since we lost our two Siamese loves 6 months apart at 17 and 19 years old and couldn’t bear the thought of losing another. I am happy to say without reservation that we are SO grateful and happy that we adopted an older kitty. We love Isis dearly and can’t imagine having brought any other cat into our home and family. She is the sweetest, funniest, most loving cat and we will cherish and care for her the rest of her life. I continue to encourage anyone and everyone to adopt older cats (and dogs) as they are such a joy. They often get passed over due to fear of health problems and financial commitments which is very unfortunate as they still have so much love to offer. Isis has an endless amount of love to offer and we are very lucky, indeed.

Isis is doing wonderfully on her 2-year adoption anniversary. She’s such a love bug and we love her dearly. I think she is loving her home in Vermont. We lost our kitty, Tobra, a few months ago. She and Tobra were’t buddies, but they got along just fine and in her own way I think she misses him. She really is the Queen of the Castle now as the only kitty in the house. We joke that she has found her ‘Inner Siamese Voice’ in the last few months as she is suddenly very talkative and loud. She was always talkative but in a very quiet and demure way. Not anymore, she is showing her true Siamese colors now! :) She is our alarm clock…. sitting on our chest or heads and meowing in our face by 6:30am every morning for her breakfast. She is relentless and will literally meow at us for an hour (I tested her once on this, she won!) if she has to. She just had her bi-annual check-up a few weeks ago and her bloodwork came back perfect. Our vet thought she might be on the verge of being hyper-thyroid but she isn’t, which is great news. Thank you so much for bringing her into our lives. Adopt seniors - they are the best!

I cannot believe that Isis has been with us for three years! She is sleeping by my side as I type this and I couldn't love her more. She continues to be in excellent health and navigates stairs, chairs, leaps and bounds with no problems. She is still good buddies with the pups, sharing the couch with them daily along with the bed, dog beds, etc. My Dad passed last September and when I came back home at the beginning of November I brought his 18 year old kitty, Hunter, with me. Hunter is a super chill cat and so is Isis so I wasn't overly concerned about them not getting along, with slow and proper introductions... but I didn't think they would become friends either. In a very short amount of time they proved me wrong and I couldn't be more thrilled for both of them. They sleep side by side and follow each other around half the day - it's hysterical. One jumps on the couch, so does the other; one drinks some water, so does the other; one scratches their claws, so does the other. The newest development in the last month or so is that Hunter loves to wash Isis at every opportunity and she lets him. She has yet to return the favor but she seems to genuinely enjoy being groomed by him. The three things that Isis seems to have reserved for herself is being the resident lap cat, helping me work at my desk during the day and snuggling with me under the covers at night. She has been outgoing from the start but she's even more outgoing now when there are other people here at the house... she loves attention and is the biggest lovebug. (I'm uploading a few but you can find some pictures and a video or two of her on Instagram at #isislovebug)

I’m a bit late in posting Isis’s 4-year adoption anniversary update but she’s doing great! I didn’t think it was possible but she’s become even more outgoing, talkative and loving this past year. She and Hunter are absolutely adorable and she’s decided to finally (!!) return the favor of washing him like he does her. They greet each other and she puts her head down first, he washes it. Then he puts his head down and she washes it, then they give each other mini baths all day long :). They continue to follow each other around and join in whatever the other is doing. They can most often be found snuggling together on the loveseat in the living room or in one of the cat/dog beds in the same room or in my office. It warms my heart as Isis was the cat who was not only looked over by many people for so long, but was initially assessed, I believe, as preferably being adopted into a home with no other cats because she was so timid. I love that she is completely out of her shell and has become an outspoken, confident and sweet Siamese! Her health continues to be great for her age. She needed two more teeth removed this past year but recovered quickly and has been on a ‘dental diet’ for quite some time. She is on a liquid arthritis med as she absolutely refuses to take a pill or powder – it doesn’t matter what form it’s in or how it’s delivered… if it’s medicine she knows it and she will not cooperate no matter what. She hates taking the liquid as well and probably gets about half of what she should, but I’ve come to realize it’s better than nothing. She is still getting around very well, however, and can easily jump, tackle stairs, etc. Her newest discovery is water in a cup. She is obsessed and if she sees a glass or cup on the coffee or side table she is sticking her head in it trying to lap it up. She’s relentless and absolutely on a mission when she sees one! So all in all she’s doing awesome and I believe she is very happy and knows she is beyond loved.
