Casper is very content. He loves his house, his people and his doggie. He's not much of a cuddler, but he enjoys a good conversation. He grew into a stunning beautiful boy.

CHAIRMAN MEOW
I am a very special cat. I was taken to the shelter by my owner. The shelter knew I couldn't stay with my eye like that. Well here I am. and I got rid of that nasty eye. I still have one good one and I will be fine with that. I came home from the vet and said I am hungry and then I cried until I got that food. They always say not to feed too much after surgery but I was not having that. I am handsome and I will let you know how I am healing
Notes from Home
I wanted to drop a note and let everyone know that The Honorable Chairman Meow, Attorney at Paw, Licensed Feline Super Villain (hahaha, that really is his full name) is getting along splendidly. He's adjusted beautifully to his new home and I already can't imagine not having him as my little four legged, one eyed friend. When I am home he is my constant companion (truly - even when I take a bath he's there, sitting right on the edge of the tub, playing in the water)

He plays hard all day and then snuggles up in bed with me at night. He's just a bit bitey when he gets excited, but we're working on that! He has so much energy but has been such a welcome addition to my life that I am thinking about beginning the process of finding another male Siamese to bring home to complete out little family and so that the Chairman will have company while I'm at work and a buddy to play with.

I want to thank each and every one of you that helped in the process of bringing the Chairman and I together. I love him so, so much. He's really made my life all the richer for being in it.

Notes from Home
Hello all:

Thank you for the anniversary note! It has been quite a busy year. Good news is we finally conquered the "hairball" problem. After reading about potential causes of frequent hairballs (twice a week), and asking for our vet's help (to no avail), I tried eliminating beef from her diet and after a few months, voila! She now has real hairballs only once every few weeks or months! What a pleasant change. I am keeping my fingers crossed that this will last because we were both miserable with frequent upchucking.
.
Her activity level is still good, not so frenetic as when we first brought her home. Her favorite thing is to run in and out of the tunnel, chasing paper balls, or feather wand, or watching my fingers on the outside and she tries to get me with her paw and I pinch her little paws and she loves this. She also enjoys fetching a feather wand that I toss upstairs several times at night and she brings it back, plops it down and we do that over and over until she has had enough.

She is definitely a routine loving cat. She waits at night until we walk up the stairs and then charges in front of us, waits until we go to bed and then she goes to her room where she sleeps until the morning. She also knows what time treat (one lysine chew) time is, waits at the cupboard until I go fetch it for her.

She continues to love my lap which initially she did not even attempt to utilize. See photo for the lap lover that she has become. Every evening when I am sitting, she crawls onto my lap, pushing away any device, computer, iPad and parks herself until I have to move. The photo was taken this am early hours when we both got up and she joined me for a cup of tea. My bathrobe that I am wearing in the photo is her favorite. I purposely lopped off my head in the photo because I had bed hair and did not want to be seen!

She had no teeth pulled this year, which was great news.

All plumbing systems are working well and thank goodness she loves her special diet to keep her in tip top shape.

I think it is safe to say that Maile has made herself fully at home and has taken over the house. She is the sweetest, lovey dovey cat we knew she could become, on her terms of course.

CONNOR
This is my "cute sleeping kitten" pose. Usually I'm a pretty busy guy, as there are toys to play with, other cats to hang out with, food to eat, and of course I have to pest foster mom. I like when she holds me, and really do expect to be cuddled. And how could you resist? I'm just so darn cure. I get along with all the other cats here, but no mean or aggressive cats please as I'm a mild-mannered little guy. Need a cute little red head to join your family? Then ask about me!

Connor is doing great! He is a very playful 8 year old! He and his brother, Tamba, enjoy racing around the house together and keeping active. Connor is always ready to play and will "take over" when a game is started! He did well at his 8 year old check up at the vet and they now call him a "senior" even though he doesn't act like one! He had a good check up and everything is fine with him except sometimes he seems to "wet" when he is sleeping. It is very watery urine so we are getting a urinalysis done at the vet. I just need to get the sample with the special litter that they gave us to use. Please feel free to contact me if anyone has ever heard of this "wetting" small amounts of urine when sleeping. I've never heard of it before and am concerned it may be something serious even though it is infrequent and not consistent. I have tried changing his diet a bit and at this point it seems to be helping. Also, Connor is acting his usual, playful, curious, loveable self! Thanks again for everything!

Connor continues to do well! It's hard to believe we have had him for 9 years! He still is very playful and active retrieving his toys when he wants to play (every evening!) He and Tamba are
both 9 years old and the vet reports that they should have "senior blood work". I think we will do this as Connor has had some skin allergy problems at certain times of the year and some occasional incontinence when he sleeps. I would like to hear what others recommend as well!
Thank you again for everything! This experience has been really great for our family!

CHIP
I was born outside with my 3 sisters and two brothers. Some nice people brought us inside and took care of us and called Siamese Rescue to help find us forever homes. I am just learning about people and toys and being inside but foster mom says I am a quick learner. I NEED another outgoing kitten or young cat in my new home so I can learn about all these new things. If you think you can be my teacher, please ask about me:)
Notes from Home
Chip weighed 5.1 lbs at his Vet visit on 11/4. He weighs 5.8 now. He is very active and healthy and talks when he wants to play. He is a jumper ESP from floor to kitchen counters. :-). He and his brother chase each other and just act like happy kittens, endless energy.
He sits on laps too. Maybe a little longer than Dail.
He helps to clean his box and room by jumping into everything that is clean.
I'm not sure which one opened the zipper on the playpen but probably both. Zippers are now wire tied. Use it at night so room door can be open.
Chip is a healthy active kitten. We love him.

This is Chip's 1 month update. He weighs over 6lbs. He is tall and long and jumps everywhere. They are both in to everything but are beginning to understand "no". He is the leader sometimes. That switches off and on. He is a lover too.
He is on my lap every evening after Dail is done. He stays there for about an hour then joins Dail beside me. He talks about most things and calls his brother when he wants to play/run/get into trouble. :-). He checks to see if I'm watching before he does something he shouldn't. Then he does it anyway. We love him.

Chip is 9 months old. This is his 6 month update. He is getting darker and longer and taller. He weighs 12 lbs according to my scale. He is so relaxed he will fall off of my lap or a chair when he turns over. 😀 When he wants something he taps me on my leg and talks. He is the louder brother but only when it's "important". He can jump quite high and plays hard. However, he watches his brother and will sit to the side when it's his turn. He calls Dail when he can't find him or when he want to raise some heck. Both are intelligent. We love him.

Today is Chip's one year in his forever home. He weighs 14 lbs. Chip is a long tall boy who the vet says is not fat. He is our lap cat. Whenever I'm sitting he is on my lap very relaxed and purring. They both purr when petted and held. The cat catcher is his favorite toy but he will play with a ball for 30 min by himself. However, he is a toilet paper shredder but only in second bathroom if we forget to keep door closed. :-). When it's time to eat he is on my lap giving kisses. But if it's treat time he is talking loudly and running at full speed to his dish. He loves watching the birds and rabbits. One rabbit came to
visit about everyday.
He and his brother are close and tell me a lot of things each day.
We love him

Chip had his physical exam on 11/10. He passed with one recommendation of more exercise Weighs 13.8.
He is very active and eats the same amount as Dail. Much taller and longer.
His vaccines were given.

11/2/16
Chip was 2 in July and in his forever home for 2 years. He weighs around 15..5 lbs according to my scale.
He and his brother eat the same foods and amount, in fact Dail will finish Chips more than Chip finishes his but his is bigger.
He gives me "hugs" when it's time to eat or he wants to go on the screen porch and he is a lap cat, Sometime for hours.
He sleeps wherever but Dail sleeps in our room in his bed made at SR.
Chip is real fast and gets that mouse right away. He is a jumper and gets in cabinets and loves to close doors. We
block them if we're away for the day. He still calls his brother to play. So Dail does it too.
He is scheduled for his exam and rabies vaccine on Nov 9th.
Still very relaxed. We love him.

DAIL
I was born outside and am still not quite sure about people and big inside spaces. So I need a quieter home that won't overwhelm me. It might take me a while to show my true personality. Foster mom says I need to go home with another kitten or young cat to play with and learn from.

Dail is very active and healthy. He was 4.2 lbs at his Vet visit but is 5 lbs now.
He does not act shy anymore !!! He eats more than his brother and gets in as much "trouble"
He is a great "helper" when I'm cleaning his litter box and playpen. He is not afraid of the vacuum cleaner. He just helps by getting in front of it. :-)
He is talking some now and sits on our laps, briefly.
He loves running around and chasing balls in our living room and ESP the kitchen.
That sweet little face has a lot of "devil" behind it. We love him.

This is Dail's 1 month update. He is over 6 lbs now. He loves to see what is behind and under everything. He still " helps" with cleaning the litter box and the bedroom. He doesn't need the playpen anymore. He does stay in the bedroom at night and when we're away. He is a lover!! Anyone who holds him gets kisses and licks. He purrs whenever he's touched. Dail is more vocal ESP when it's time to eat or when he can't find his brother. His siamese is shining through!! He loves my 11 year old granddaughter. He runs to her as soon as she comes in the door. We love him.

Dail is 9 months old now. He is still a lover and is talking when he wants something or notifying me that the alarm is ringing.
He loves his food, natures variety canned and Blue no grain dry. He loved it in Fl after a few days adjusting to the motorhome. He is my wild boy now that we'rewwwaees back in Pa. More room to run and chase his brother. He weighs 9 lbs according to my scale, not fat but long. He is shorter than his brother. We all play a lot ESP with the cat catcher. They broke the first one so second ryyone has two mice on it. We love him.

Dail was a year old in July and has been in his forever home for 1 year today.
He is 10 lbs now and VERY active. Balls and cat catcher are his favorite toys plus anything new especially if it's in a box.
Watching people and rabbits and birds on the screened porch kept him occupied on warm days and evenings.
He is a lover and a talker. He tells us everything, time to get up, time for treats, time to eat, time for bed, and where Chip is
If I'm looking for him. He is a BIG help when I'm cleaning his box and on the computer. He is so happy when I'm out of bed in am. I get kisses and rubs and told everything, open the curtains. Time to eat. Need fresh water. Then he goes to Paul and he gets kisses and rubs too.
He is a sweetie. We love him.

Dail passed his physical exam on 11/10. His vaccines were given and he weighs 9.6 lbs.

11/2/16
Dail has been in his forever home for 2 years. He was 2 in July. He is a sweetie who loves to play ball and cat catcher. He is fast and determined to get that mouse. He is a very good eater, eats more than his brother, but maintains at around 10.6 lbs according to my scales. I still get to know what is " very important" right now!
He has a check up scheduled for Nov 9 th for exam and Rabies vaccine.
His favorite place is on the screen porch watching birds and rabbits or asleep in the sun. But too cold now so
On a window sill because I say no. ☚ī¸ī¸
He can open cabinets and jump over the furniture with us sitting on it.
We love him.

FINN- FINNAGIN
Hi, guys! I just got to this new place, and I love that I get to snuggle and be petted and to play with toys. When you pick me up, I purr and I'll even give you a hug around the neck sometimes. I really think that things may be looking up for me! I walked right into this foster home and made myself comfy! I like other cats, I think the dog is fine, and I'm already sleeping part of the night with foster mom. I also love laps! I like to follow foster mom around the house. She says to tell you that I have a bit of a hitch in my gait -- my back legs do great but they aren't always in sync with my fronts. She'll tell you more when you ask about me. It doesn't bother me at all. I run like crazy around the house and jump and do stairs and my litterboxing is superb. I'm working on getting over an eye infection with some medicine. I'm quite the loverboy, and I'll soon be ready to go home!

Nov 1-Hi this is my first month anniversary and I am a shining star!
I am so polite and respectful of my new sister Layla that she lets me sleep on the bed and even share Meowm's lap.
I get to race around and play with my wand toy and even try out jingle ball soccer. This weekend I even get a new brother.
There is a baby sister but she was "feral" so for now she is downstairs until she is brave enough to explore upstairs. We go down and say hi. Oh and my new name is Finnegin but I go by Finn. My foster meowm started calling me Finn and we all like it so well it stuck. And Meowm says its really Finnegin Beginagin but too much of a mouthful when I jump on the kitchen counter.
I am soooooooo thankful for all the Meezer People who helped me start a new life.
Ciao meow for now.

Notes from Home
June 2: Well here I am in my furever home for 2 weeks and am being treated like a Princess. I came out of my crate tail high, looked around, used my new scratcher, drank some bottled water, ate a plateful of food. I investigated every corner and cranny of my new room. I cannot go out into the rest of the place because there is a Sam out there and we have to take our time getting acquainted.

My ears got a bit inflamed again probably from the stress of that long ride in a car. I was sort of okay with the trip. Meowmy went right away to get some stuff for my ears. I was not too fond of having it put in but since I know she is helping me i settled down and even purr on her lap while she does it to let her know I understand. My ears feel way better now since two weeks. I don't even notice the stuff going in.

I saw a new vet too and she says I am great and is impressed that Rescue did my dental. I was good for the new vet and all the techs had to come meet me. They think I am purrty. I think I am too.

I love my toys and Meowmy is amazed at how playful I am. She has had a lot of kitties in her lifetime but she says I have an inner kitten even though I am three years old! My Foster Meowm Christine and grand Meowm sent toys home with me and every day I go in the basket and choose a favorite to play with.

I love my kitty cube. Rock and roll! and spend the rest of my hanging out time on the cat tree Meowm made. The view from the second floor window is great.

I have had a few chances to explore the second floor because the Sam was downstairs.
the Sam and I have sniffed noses through the crack a few times. Sometimes the Sam hisses at me and sometimes not.

I have to confess that one day I did my business outside the pan. Meowm finally saw why. I was having a bit of a hard time and
as I turned around some went over the edge. Now I have some pumpkin in my food to help me go easier and all is well.
I am fastidious in my habits. So many changes and you might have a tiny bit of trouble going too!

Meowm is well trained as I said. Each morning she brings my breakfast and cleans my facilities and we have a massage and brushing. We chat and I play with my favorite Red Spikey Ball. At night I get my ear medicine and eat right after. I get venison and other yummies, my favorites, just in case my ears are from grain allergy.

Then after she cleans, we play with the Dangler. And I rock and roll and pounce through my kitty cube.
Sometimes I get an evening massage and brush too!

But whenever I want I go pick a toy from my basket and play Rug Soccer and Wall Pong.
One of Meowm's friends came and met me. I rubbed all over her and twirled.
I like beans.

Now that I am getting used to being here and my ears feel better and all these adjustment details are happening, I feel even more playful and confident than ever!

Today I got to go out in the rest of this place. The Sam was taking a nap in another room by himself. Gave me a chance to runnnnn! and of course track the chipmunks, squirrel and birds out the back slider. But first I checked everything several times.
A girl can't be too thorough you know.

After a few hours I went back in my own room. Meowm says not long and me and the Sam will be together in the whole place.
I am okay with that. I don't mind the Sam but he has to get used to me more.

Meowm took three months to choose me. Karen helped a lot and so did foster Meowm---
and we all think I am the purrfect match here.
I think I am the cat's meow.

More soon!
Layla
-----------------------------------
June 4 Today Layla and Sam were out together for the first time after two weeks of sniffing noses in the cracks.
It was cautious and some hissing and a poofy tail but no aggression or posturing.

Eventually Layla settled in the front windowsill while Sam played with a dangly toy.
They each allowed me to approach and pet them. No tension there.

Today was proof that the cautious progressive approach to integration works!

Sam has a cranky streak which showed up some years ago with some humans and it took a long time to find the keys to
tame it.
So I was being very conservative about integration and keeping my Interviewer and Foster involved like is recommended.

Layla has the ideal purrsonality for coming into my home. Taking three months of careful inquiry and lots of bypassing was worth it--even though a bit emotional at times.
This has been so very helpful and downright important. And I have decades with cats but teamwork has been such an essential ingredient of the whole process.

I decided to end this first meeting on a happy note...after they came within inches sniffing the air between them while I petted and praised both with a happy voice.
More tomorrow! But I could not have asked for a more encouraging first meeting.
Diane, Sam and Layla

June 19th
One month anniversary! So much has changed. Layla has full run of the house and she and Sam have worked it out.
The only restriction I still make is she has to sleep in her Millie bed in her room at night. Sam is used to sleeping on my bed since my Geezer Meezer died. She was the dominant pussy and did not share.
Layla is a strong purrsonality and she took over the bed leaving him to sleep on the floor. So I want Layla to share.
It is a bit too soon for that but it is definitely moving in that direction. Layla is a wonderful kitty. She dashes and leaps and plays with her favorite toys throughout the day. The evening routine includes being brushed and a time with her dangling toy.
She has adopted my lap now too when I sit at the laptop. More and more she is looking in my eyes instead of just at me.
we are still working on settling down the ear itchies. It is not yeast or infection right now...just a lot of wax according to the vet so we will patiently persist with management. Once that is clear again then we will work on selectively eliminating possible food allergies. She eats high quality food but sometimes an ingredient is the culprit. We shall see. Layla lets me put the drop in her ear without a fuss so it is really no bother to have this in her nightly routine. And so smart! She opens cupboards but I have no toxic things under there anyway. She learned quickly to let me put Sam's food down first and not go for it herself.
She sits and waits and then goes over to where I feed her a few feet away. right now she is sitting between my arms with her chin resting on my arm as I type.
Did I say happy affectionate wonderful kitty?! have I gushed enough? LOL. I will say again that if you have circumstances to accommodate with an existing cat...it is worth the time and effort to choose just the right one. Your interviewer and fosters are such important resources.
I will get some photos up now.
Diane Sam and Layla

Nov 1, 2016--Layla says "I have been here four years and recently lost my brother Sam. Meowm knows I need friends and action even though I am devoted to her. So she adopted Finn! (Infiniti) It's only a month and we are so good together we even share Meowm's bed. And take turns sleeping on her... Now Meowm says there is even another brother coming named Higgins...She says it will be like the Indy 500 here. I don't know what that means but we sure do like the Mad Dash through the house now and then. Meezer Rescue is the best!"

You know they say don't judge a book by its cover - well, I'm a bit of a mess right now but foster mom says I will be beautiful in a few weeks. I've got red puffy eyes and chin acne and someone chopped off my whiskers. Geez!!!!! My bath has me looking much better already and foster mom says my whiskers will start to grow back so there will be a new look for me with a little time. And a few days of washing my face will help get rid of the kitty acne. The good news is that all of my little problems are little and will soon be gone.
Amazing what two weeks can do for a girl. My whiskers are growing back, my chin acne is almost gone and only a little bit of puffy eyes.
Mango
Notes from Home
This may a repeat of my entry on another page, but now everyone involved can read it!

Mango has been given the new name of Peaches! She's doing great! She is out of her safe room, exploring the house up & down. She is interacting well with Vinny (1 yr. old male) & his mom, Cici (3 year old) My other 2, Lily, the 16 yr old, & Sutty, (12 yr old) accept her presence, but not much interaction, but nose touching often.

She is a very nocturnal kitty, romping all over in the wee hours. Last night she came & slept on my chest for a couple of hours, between romps. She likes to sit in my lap for long periods of time, purring away. She loves her wand toys & plays well with Vinny & Cici. She has a funny little ma-ma doll-like yip, rather than a meow or yowl. Too funny.

Her whiskers look like they've grown a tad. She has put on a wee bit of weight I think, because she doesn't feel as bony as when she 1st arrived. She has a little pinkness to her gums at the edges, so she will have annual dental works-ups, & cleanings as necessary. I do add a dental additive in the water, so hopefully that will aid in improving her gums.

Here's a photo of her with Vinny, playing on the bed in her safe room. Enjoy......




10/11/16 am Peaches has had some coughing episodes & difficulty with breathing over the weekend, so I got her to the vet as soon as I could. Temp is normal. She had 3 x-ray views taken of her lungs. No tumors, thankfully, but her vet thinks she my have asthma. The x-rays will be read by a radiologist later today, with results coming back today or tomorrow. No meds given at this time. Once the results of her films are back, her treatment will be planned. If it is asthma, she may be on steroids. Doc says that might help with her excessive rubbing & scratching. I'll keep you all posted.

10/11/16 evening: The diagnoses came back Lower Airway Disease. Bronchial Asthma would be another term. Here's the x-ray reading:

"The cardiac silhouette is normal in size & shape.
Specific cardiac chamber enlargement is not identified.
The pulmonary vasculature is normal in size, with no evidence of cardiac decompensation.
The trachea is normal in size.
There is an increase in the bronchial opacities.
Peribronchial thickening is identified.
Air bronchograms to suggest alveolar lung disease are not present.
There is flattening of the diaphragm caudally & increased distance between the cardiac silhouette & diaphragm suggesting air trapping. The lungs extend beyond the 13th rib further suggesting air trapping.
No mass lesions are identified in the thorax.
Liver volume is increased with margins of the liver extending further caudally than normal.
The spleen & kidneys are normal in size.
heterogenous material consistent with ingesta is present in the stomach. The stomach is mildly distended by the ingesta.
The small bowel is gas & fluid filled, but normal in diameter.
A radio frequency identification chip is seen along the dorsal thoracic wall. (We knew that.)

COMMENTS: Radiographic changes would be consistent with allergic lung disease & could result in the clinical signs. An infectious bronchitis cannot be completely excluded. Treatment for airway disease with antibiotics, bronchdialators, & corticosteroids in varying combination would be indicated. Follow-up x-rays can be used to monitor the response to the treatment. the clinical responses to treatment will determine if a transtracheal wash to obtain material for analysis & culture would be necessary. because of the hepatomegaly, assessment of liver function with cliniccopathological data is recommended."


So there could be some liver issues perhaps. Right now her treatment is Clavamox (antibiotic), for 10 days, along with Prednisone for about a month. She'll be re-evaluated at that time & depending on how she does, she'll either be ok, or have to have a preventative steroid treatment. Poor baby.

She's just been given her 1st dose of meds, & it went well. I'm doing liquids, as I feel pills can be so easily spit out. She ate along side Vinny & enjoyed her after dinner chicken treat.

10/16/16 Peaches has been on her meds for 5 days now, & she is doing great!

11/1/16 Peaches is out & about regularly now. Her chin acne flared up, so the vet gave her some ointment & it seems to be helping. I think her whisker have grown a smidgen, as she isn't rubbing her chin as hard & as often as when she 1st got here. She's a skittish girl & spooks easily. She also likes to tear around the house as if she was set on fire. She continues to sit up on her hind legs & with her 2 front paws together, wave them in the air, begging when she's hungry. I gotta get a picture of it.It's so darn cute. I wonder if she had a dog or 2 as companions in her last home. We'll never know, but I bet she did. She continues to find my lap, while I'm online, & cuddles & purrs to her content, & mine too. Getting along really well with the others. Vinnie tends to mow her over, as he does with the others, & she is learning to tell him to knock it off, LOL. She is a pure joy, 7 I am so grateful & thankful that she found her way to me.
