Ricky and Lucy here at last! I'm the confident one, and Lucy is on the shy side, especially with new people in new places. Since she counts on me to feel safe, we go home together only. So if you're looking for a ready-made fabulous pair of adorableness, look no further because you've found us!

Notes from Home
Mattie and Rilla have settled in and taken over! They love running around the house and get into anything. They have explored every closet, cubby, nook and cranny in the house, and have only snuck into in a closets a few times without anyone knowing. They took a nice nap until we figured out where they were. They have truly brought some life into the house and their antics keep us laughing.

Love me love me love me love me love me DO NOT stop love me love me love me (what? You have to leave? Nip nip swat swat) love me love me love me love me more....

I'm a very chatty guy who grew up in a cage and then a shed, and it's taking me some time to realize that someone will always be there for me. I talk a lot as I'm pretty concerned about what's going on, and I am overly anxious (can you say desperate) for your attention. I do great a lot of the time, but other times I just can't let it go.... So I'm going to need a special owner who understands that I need some time to settle in, a loving but firm hand, and probably a time out every once in awhile!

It's been a year since Phil's been here. He is quiet, calm, extrordinarily sociable. He is supremely confident. He sits with the big dogs, he grooms them and permits them to groom him. Our female Traditional seal point has accepted him, and they sit together, play together, and they do not fight. He vocalizes when he wants something, but is quiet otherwise. What a positive change for this beautiful and affectionate fellow. A strong personality, ever present, not a bully at all. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to welcome this lovely boy, and to see him through.

March 2016, two years, and Phil has settled nicely into the family. What a big change he has undergone since first he arrived here. He no longer bites. He does not yowl. He remains an intense but quiet fellow, most gregarious, continuously interactive. He vocalizes a great deal, in quiet tones, and seems to have opinions on everything. His favorite toy is "Da Bird", a feathery wand toy. He "kills" that bird repeatedly and never tires of chasing it.

Phil and our two Rottweilers have become a team. He even mimics their positions when they are in the same room. Phil has developed a tolerable relationship with our older Traditional Siamese Seal Point girl. Even though they run and play together, she is clearly in charge. She is about half his size, and dainty, but she is the boss cat.

Phil displays anxiety when a person is behind a closed door, and when he is behind a closed door, for instance, when being fed. Phil is anxious when a person leaves the room, and runs to be with them. When I leave the house, Phil spends time sitting with the dogs or with our female cat, Lily. He is calm when I return home. Phil now sleeps on the bed with us, frequently at the foot, and sometimes between us or in my arms. He wakes us early, first purring, then tapping us, then talking loudly. Phil likes to be held after he eats. He always seeks the available lap, and travels from lap to lap, always being happily accepted. Phil enjoys riding on shoulders. He holds on tight, and purrs.

Phil enjoys breakfast time with Mel. When I play guitar, no matter what I am playing, Phil sits on the couch with me and puts his head on my other knee. Lily sits on the back of the couch. The dogs lie on the floor nearby. It is a peaceful kingdom. Thank you again for rescuing Phil, nursing him back to health, and for making him available to us.

Hey,

It's Phil, Phil I Will, King of the Hill, Mr. Opportunity, but Punxysutawney Phil to you, buddy.

Yes, I do love to eat. Kibble, of course, I also have breakfast with Dad, salmon or tuna and yogurt. After I eat I like a belly rub and I want to be picked up and carried around. I will use my soft paws on you. Then put me back on the floor. I love to chase and catch and chew my Da Bird wand toy. Every day I chase and catch and chew that thing. I have had a few Birds toys. I chew them up, but a new one always ends up on the end of that wand toy. I sleep on the big bed. First at my People's feet, but I always end up in Mom's arms. I purr. I chortle.

And I have very important routines. They give me security. If the routines are changed I become anxious, I talk a lot and sometimes yowl. I am always alert, interested in what is going on, and interactive with everyone, people, dogs, the female cat. I do new things all the time. If a new person comes to the house, I check 'em out at a distance. If they are worth my time, I will announce myself, present myself and interact. If they are not worth my time, I will not even come into the room. Let the dog interact.

I abhor the closed door. No door can ever be closed, I must have access to every room at all times. I accompany my people to the bathroom and they close the door - but they are in there with me, so it is OK. I will work the door handle or yowl to be let out.

The People feed us cats separately because I gobble my food down and then I will want to take Lilly's food. So they feed us in separate rooms. I yowl to come out of the room when I am done eating and then I yowl at Lilly's door so I can get at her food. Then I sit quietly, waiting for her to finish her food and the People will open her door. Lilly is a normal eater, not like me.

I wake my People in the morning. I put my face next to their faces and purr loudly. They open their eyes and look into my eyes and wake up. If they don't get up right away, no more Mr. Nice Cat, I will stomp on their stomachs. Then they will get up!

I comment on everything, I have a lot to say. I talk to the big girl Rottie. I make my sounds and I sit with her. We do body language. I don't let Mom out of my sight. When she plays guitar, I sit on the guitar case. No one but Dad can sit in Dad's chair. Better not! I greet Dad when he comes home. Both of us cats watch TV with Dad. I see lots of little animals running across the screen., I alert to them, I would like to chase and catch and chew them.

Sometimes I see a small bug in the house. Lilly and I hunt together at night.

When my People make the bed, I take a flying leap on the covers and make a big dent in the pillows. Thusly do I put my mark of ownership upon the bed. I am a dominant male cat, but I am not dominant to anyone in this house. I do my best, I understand the hierarchy here, and my place in it.

My best buddy in this house, the kind, big male Rottie who always sat quietly with me, died suddenly in mid-December. I sit on or near his crate sometimes. I wanted to be the Chief Animal when he died, but no, the girl Rottie became Chief Animal. The Seal Point girl, Lilly, is still the Chief Cat. I make a lot of conversation but I am still not the boss. I understand that a puppy will arrive in the family soon. I don't know what a puppy is, but one will come here. What am I supposed to do about that? Stay tuned for further adventures.

MOCHA
What a life! Compared to what I had this is most wonderful. I can't get over having good food and lots of love and affection. I thought living a cats life meant unkind words and no love. I won't tell foster mom about other things that happened to me but she has heard a little about it. I love Avia and she loves me so we would like to stay together please. Foster mom says our life from now on will be much better than it ever has been.

Notes from Home
What a lover boy. Mocha has settled in and taken possession of "his" house and "his" people. He spends most of his time on the patio surveying the yard and monitoring the goings on of the squirrels and the birds. He doesn't wait for an invitation to a cozy lap, he just jumps right up. We never know where we're going to find him, he loves to get into cabinets and closets or high places like the top of the kitchen cabinets and watch us from above. He knows when it's bedtime and recently beats me to the bedroom and calls me to bed! We have to pick him up to make room for us in the bed because once he gets comfortable, he's NOT moving! We are so happy with Mocha.

March 29,2012. Mocha has been with us a year today. It has taken him almost this whole year to truly believe that this is his forever home. Only the past few weeks does he not run from my husband when he tries to pick him up. He remembers him putting him in the cat carrier shortly after arriving here to take him to the vet, but Mocha thought he was moving on once again! He still doesn't go near the closet that holds the cat carrier! Last fall I felt like Mocha was lonely for feline company since he was used to being with other cats, and we found the perfect match for him. We rescued a 1and 1/2 yr old female meezer named Lola, and Mocha just loves her! They play and wrestle and Mocha squeals like a girl!!!!! He's a riot! They chase each other through the house, and they sit together on the patio watching the birds and squirrels. I bought them a cat tree and they spend a lot of time watching the goings on around here from their perches. When we first got Mocha he had a faint purr and I thought that was just how he purred, But as time goes on, his purr has gotten louder and louder and now he has a good loud purr. I think that in the back of his mind he still can't believe that he really is home forever!!!! He loves to be petted and combed and sits on our laps. He sleeps with us, and every evening he demands his Purina Party Treats which I feed him one at a time by hand. He takes them from me ever so gently! Mocha is such a happy, playful, loving, gentle cat......we are so blessed to have him. If I can figure out how to post pix, I will, but I am not savvy in that department.


March 30/2015 I have been in my forever home for 4 years now, and loving every minute. I have so much fun, especially with mom. I make her play with me all the time. I just love when she plays with the wand with the mouse on the end. Mom says I'm as playful as a kitten! I sure love my family. And all the nurses who work here. And my cat sister Lola. But most of all I just LOVE my Mom. I'm never far from her because I watch her every move, lol. She says I act like a puppy dog, the way I follow her everywhere. She snuggles me and calls me her nice fluffy pussycat. And I talk to her and she understands me! I just wish that she NEVER had to leave the house because I miss her and can't wait for her to come home. I'm always there to greet her at the door. I am healthy and strong and very lively because they take such good care of me. I am blessed!!!
March 29, 2018 : Well my poor little Mocha had a hard year but has finally turned that corner and is regaining weight. He had a serious bout of pancreatitis for which he had to be hospitalized and then he received B12 shots for months. Then he had to have two teeth pulled...a fang and a molar which put him in the hospital again. He's had to adjust to eating with 2 less teeth. After healing from that, he continued to lose weight and have watery stools. He was then diagnosed with inflammatory bowel. After steroid treatment and ongoing probiotics he has finally started to gain weight! Through it all he has been a trooper. He is joined at my hip more than ever! I should have named him Velcro, lol. He rarely leaves my side day or night. Still the sweetest boy you could ever meet. He loves to snuggle on my shoulder and under my neck. His favorite toy is his yellow banana. He is just adorable. We are soooo happy we adopted this special little guy. I will try to upload pictures but I failed at that once before. Thank you to everyone at Siamese Rescue for enabling us to adopt Mocha. I can't imagine life without him!

Oliver is delightful and such a love bug. Stella is sweet and playful. They are definitely bonded. She cries if Oliver is not around and he will come to her. It’s lovely to see them cuddled together or talking to one another. I am very happy that we kept them together.

Oliver and Stella are looking forward to Spring weather and more porch time. They love exploring and playing with their toys. Very sweet personalities developing. I love to hear them talking to each other or their toys!

It's has been just about 2 weeks since we brought Ciara to her forever home. She is doing so well and has quickly stolen our hearts. She is happy and playful and just a love bug. The lovely care she received from the wonderful folks at the rescue center made her transition so much easier. I am sure we will have a lot more great stories yo share about her as time goes on. Just love her so much!

April 21, 2015- we just celebrated our first month with Bella (Ciara). She continues to do wonderful and we are enjoying her so much. She is so playfull and there are tons of toys all over the house. Loves to play hide and seek and every day is a new adventure! We are so happy Bella is a part of our family.

June 28th, 2015 - three months have gone by and Bella (Ciara) is doing wonderful! She has the run of the house and is so playfuland curious. She is friendly to anyone who comes to visit and loves to chirp and talk. Just a joy and we love her so much

March 21,2016- today is Bella's (Ciara's) one year anniversary to her homecoming. She is just as sweet and adorable today as she was back then. She is the queen of the house and is just so loving and playful. She had her vet checkup 2 weeks ago, and she is doing great! We love her so much and are so great full she came into our lives.

March 26, 2018 We celebrate 3 years with our beautiful Bellla(Ciara) She continues to be playful and adventurous and full of personality. She loves to snuggle on our laps and gives us smoothies every day. She has the run of the house and loves spending time on our closed in outside porch. She has made friends with a chippy & a few squirrels. Her yearly checkup is scheduled in 2 weeks and is doing just great.
We love her so much and are grateful she is a part of our families.

Its been 6 months since I brought my little sweetheart home. We decided to change her name from Moonbeam to Luna, similar meaning but a shorter. She's a dear little kitty, very cuddly and sweet she loves snuggle. She is very playful and mischievious when she wants attention. She's also very shy it's taken a long time for her to warm up to my husband. She follows me everywhere we're a pair. She's not to keen on new people it takes her a while to warm up but when she does her little sweet personality shines through. She loves absolutely loves belly rubs it's her favorite thing. We have to watch her she has a sweet tooth, apparently loves vanilla cake and frosting. She managed to pry the cover off a brthday cake and eat some lol Now we know we remove any temptation. Love, love Lune, she's truly a part of the family. Thank you Siamese rescue xx

Notes from Home
August 13, 2009: Mally has made a permanent home with us since February. We are all very happy! She loves to play with her mega-turboscratcher, especially if we play with her. She has a big appetite, with previous digestive issues gone (we have kept her on Miralax daily). She is talkative and affectionate, and will now allow us to hold her for several minutes. We are so happy to have adopted her....We love her very much!!

Brett


March 24, 2018:

Our beloved Mally crossed to the Rainbow Bridge on November 22, 2017. In the almost nine years that we were privileged to have her as part of our family, she did give us "all of the love we need(ed)" as Jane's foster notes said, and we attempted to give her all of the love she needed in return. Over the years, she blossomed considerably from the shy cat that was afraid of things and people that she was unfamiliar with (and could not see well given her poor eyesight) into a bold cat, that was loved by all that she met. She enjoyed visiting Virginia Beach and smell the ocean. She loved to be with us at home and to be brushed and given us head butts. She was very independent minded, but was very loving.

Mally developed intestinal lymphoma but due to her fighting spirit, and her wonderful oncology team that said she was a favorite patient, she went into remission twice and had a good quality of life up until she developed additional complications that were likely the delayed result of the injuries she sustained before rescued.

Mally gave us infinite joy, and was truly "one good kitty." We will remember and miss her always. Thank you to SCRC for rescuing her and allowing us to be her guardians.

I am a petite girl at 6lbs. I am a wee bit timid upon first meeting but friendly and talkative. I love to receive pets and don't mind being picked up but not too sure about lap sitting. I am learning about toys but sometimes I get scared so will growl. a quieter home with adults would be best.

I do have very specific needs when it comes to the litterbox. Foster Meowmy can explain it all to you when you inquire about me.

Notes from Home
Well, where do I start. I am getting adjusted to my forever home, my command post is my perch on top of my cat castle. I spent the first week sleeping at night in the nice carpeted enclosed area under my throne. But now I feel perfectly fine to stretch out and nap or sleep out in the open. I keep my trim figure, I like to exercise about every 3 hours. I have taught my humans this really cool game of "I cry... you come" It's really cool. The best time to play is like 2 am, 4 am, and 6 am after a light morning meal. I have made a royal selection of a tightly balled McDonald's biscuit wrapper as my official and only toy ! Let all of you subjects drift off to sleep... then when they least expect - SURPRISE !!! you stand up on you royal perch start crying. Continue to cry until the come to your royal court. Then you look at your official royal toy while making a medium voice rrrrrrrr-ing cry and look them straight in the face. First one to blink looses. Have them throw your royal toy out of the bedroom and down the hall, you then descend from the royal castle chase, capture, kill the royal toy and proudly meow! Start again with the rrrrrrr-ing cry until they come, pick up your royal toy and throw it again. Repeat chase scene and victory meow. Keep this up for at least 15 minutes and you should get reward with a toss down the stairs to the first floor. You impress them with your lighting speed descending steps, chase, capture, kill and that all important proud meow and repeat rrrrrrr-ing cry. Don't forget - EVERY 2 hours !! Any less and my humans seem to forget what to do.

I am suppose to meet my new vet in about 2 weeks... I currently still have issues with cat carriers. My new vet told my humans to leave the carrier out so that I have to see it and just in case he gave them a very small dose of kitty Prozac if I still have issues. I am suppose to try to have some evening meals served in my carrier in the next few days.... I'll have to have to get back to you on that.

WHEW, This is hard on my paws... I need to take a nap. I will report back later.

Scarlett, formally Selma (new forever home, new life, new humans (who LOVE me!) thus - new name)
Thanks to the SiameseRescue who cared enough to take in this former unloved, discarded former little street urchin thrown out like trash - shower me with love, attention, medicine and developed this REALLY great group of humans to care for me until they found the perfect forever home for me.

Foster Mary can tell you tons about me and I hope it'll be all good.
Things haven't been great for me these past two years but it's looking much much better.
Got some trust issues we'd have to work on but rest assured foster Mary has been getting inside my head (so to speak) and she thinks I'm a really good girl (and she tells me that a lot, and I like it!)

Hello,

Kimiko is a wonderful sweet cat who has worked her way into my heart. She is progressing nicely. We are doing things on her terms and that is working out very well. She will come and sit next to me on the couch for loves and brushes. She loves her brush. She also like her food! We have supper together every night. I get my human food and she gets her favorite wet food. If I do not do it on time she chirps at me. She has the sweetest little voice. I did not think she knew how to play, and then discovered that she likes to play on her own not with a human . She may work up to that though. She still gets startled easily. The door bell is so loud it makes both of us jump. I am so pleased to have Kimiko in my life.

Victoria and Kimiko
