Notes from Home
LiLing is doing well and is really affectionate and happily adjusted in her new furever home. Oliver and LiLing are still going through an an adjustment phase, but things are really improving between the two of them. LiLing is losing weight as the vet suggested. She has lost .65 pound so far and we will have her weighed periodically at the vet to keep her on course.

June 14, 2017
LiLing now knows her new name and comes when called from another room. I use a little sing-song way of saying her name and she has started to run to me when I call her. LiLing is no longer being placed in her room during the night to prevent her from chasing Oliver and tormenting him. Oliver and LiLing are now able to be in the same room and behave in a civil manner. Oliver tries to keep close to me for a little protection when moving from room to room but most of the time it is not necessary. LiLing has lost a little bit of interest in charging him and I guess some of the fun has gone out of her game. They have even been seen sitting on the counter within a few feet of one another for a short time. Since LiLing is not confined to her room at night she has not yet started to join us in the bedroom. Oliver and Mataji sleep on the bed but LiLing has not started this routine, but I believe she will in time. However, she does jump onto the bed early in the morning and want a little snuggling. She also wants me to get up and feed her. She is still watching her weight and is looking slimmer and quite lovely. She is the biggest sweetheart ever, and I love her.

On November 8, 2017 LiLing went to the vet for her annual wellness exam and vaccines. Prior to my adoption of LiLing she had an operation for a two inch mass on her mammary gland which had been malignant. When I adopted her she had a pea sized lump on her chest right near the operation site. My vet saw this on LiLing's initial visit to my vet and said we must keep an eye on this lump so it does not get bigger. It has gotten larger. On November 13, 2017 LiLing had an operation to have this lump removed. The incision was about 3/4 inch long but due to scarring from the initial operation it was troublesome and therefor had some bruising. She was a perfect patient at the vets and also for me when she came home. Oliver was so glad to see her and later the next day I found them sleeping together on our bed . Who would have thought that would ever happen? Today I got a call from my vet and the biopsy said it was malignant also. She said that her lungs were clear and there was no spread to any surrounding areas. This does not mean it could not reappear elsewhere. I will be vigilant in the event another lump appears, but right now all is well.
On a sadder note, Mataji passed away on November 9, 2017. He was 20 years and 6 mo old. I will forever miss that guy. He was amazing. November was not a good month for me.... but time marches on. LiLing is a pleasure to me.

Jan 19, 2018 - LiLing continues to be healthy and is very happy....but right now a little more clingy because she is a little bit jealous. LiLing now has a new sibling! I have recently rescued a Bengal kitty to keep LiLing and Oliver company. (I rescued her in honor and memory of Mataji.) Sarabi is a female, about 2 years old, but I do not know her birth date or anything about her past. She is a pure bread Bengal, I have been told by the rescue group, but I do not really know that, as there is no paperwork to prove anything. I don't care anything about that anyway except that I gave her a loving home which she needed. LiLing is having fun playing with Sarabi and they are very active together. As a matter of fact, all three of them play together very much and enjoy each other's company. LiLing has never climbed to the top of the cat tree until Sarabi climbed up there. Didn't take long until LiLing climbed up there too and claimed it for herself one day. All three of them seem very happy with the new arrangement and that is what matters the most. I am happy too....now my home is complete.

March 22, 2018 - Today LiLing had a vet appointment to see if there is any sign of cancer for which she has had two involved operations. Dr. Journel took two different radiograph views and both views proved to be clean and clear!! Nothing suspicious was determined. She lost 1/4 pound since November 2017. This is a good thing as we are watching her weight and trying to get it down by another pound or so. I am so very happy to hear this good news. She will go back to the vet in Sept or Oct for another check-up. I really want to keep on top of things with her and keep her healthy and active. She is such a pleasure to me. LiLing did not like the trip to the vet and meowed loudly in the car the whole way there. In the waiting room she continued to meow. I asked to have her back toenails clipped and she hates that procedure! Then she meowed all the way home, too. I was glad to get her home and out of her carrier. Now she is calmed down and happy once again.

Up for a whole lotta loving? Then you might just be interested in 18 pounds of me! Evicted and living in a car, good thing it wasn't a VW beetle! Here I am, ready for you, if you have a larger sized lap! I've lived with other cats before, so no problems there that we know of - stand by while I get ready for my videos and pictures!

Simba is doing great! He's settling in so well. I had a couple of dear friends come over for dinner to meet him (Sue & Jeff) and he inserted himself between them on the couch and let them give him belly rubs! He was such a sweetie and had no anxiety at all. Obviously he's had good interactions with people and has learned to trust. He's so loving and is eating and playing with his catnip toys. Such a joy to have! I'll try to upload some pictures later this week.

Thanks to all who helped get Simba to me. He's a wonderful kitty, I love him to pieces!

4/9/14



Simba has been settling in nicely. He is a wonderful cat, so loving, so easy-going, so gentle. He's doing great, loving his Millie beds and his new companion, Bizzy, who joined our household on March 30th. They are best buds. We're working on the weight loss program! Having an energetic housemate helps! I feel so lucky to have found a beautiful kitty in Simba. Just love him and am enjoying him so much.

4/22/14

It's been a month since Simba joined my family and it's like he's been here forever! He continues to be a lovey boy, very social, enjoying life. He's lost a little bit of weight and we continue to work on that! His coat has gotten really shiny and softer. He doesn't like to have his toe nails cut, however.....but he's good about using his scratching post and pad. Just a joy. Love him more each day!

5/5/14--Simba has been on a diet and he's lost a couple of pounds. His coat is absolutely gorgeous, so shiny and no more dandruff. Will send pics as soon as I can download them. He is such a loving boy and we're one big happy family!

3/31/15 Celebrating one year anniversary! Simba is wonderful! We had a scare a few months ago where Simba was coughing. Took him to the Tufts Animal Hopsital and they did a complete workup. He was on antibiotics and prednisone. I also switched his dry food (he was having both wet and dry food) and with the treatment and new food routine, he's completely recovered! He's been back to the vet for follow up and all is well. He's the best cat and I absolutely love him. So happy to have found him!


3/25/16: Simba, Izzy and I just celebrated the 2nd anniversary of "got you" day! We are just livin the dream with this guy. Simba is the best cat and continues to enjoy his forever home with us. Just love, love, love him and am so grateful to have the pleasure of his kitty company in our home. I'm happy to report that SImba has been in great health --no issues. He HATES having his claws trimmed, so we visit the local groomer who has a special touch. He continues to be a cat nip junkie so I regularly indulge him and keep the vacuum cleaner handy since the toys are ripped to shreds in minutes. Looking forward to many more happy years together!!

3/25/17: Year number 3 of total joy with Simba! On a scale of 1-10 he's an 11! He's healthy and a total love bug. Absolutely the sweetest guy ever. I feel so lucky to have him.

3/22/18

Simba is doing great! We had a well kitty visit a few months ago and his blood work was perfect! As the vet said, "he's a beautiful cat". Simba continues to be a joy, a real snuggler who loves to sit on my lap when I read. He is a cat of a lifetime!

DIXIE
WHAT!!! I'm not a meezer you say. Phooey. I've got meezer 'tude aplenty.
I have points. Look at these black spots on my legs, those are points. Well sort of. Look at the lightning bolt on my forehead. I should have been Harry Potter's familar but I simply couldn't leave without my MaiTai (VA3271).
Okay so I don't have blue eyes. But mine are big and expressive.
I have tons of purrsonality. Literally loaded with it. Foster M chuckles at me every evening when I lay at her feet and roll onto my back for belly rubs. I even get them before the resident dawg does. I figured out if I lay on my back at Foster M's feet she'll rub my belly first cause she has to walk over me to get to that dog. Smart, huh.
Yes I do go with MaiTai (VA3271). We've been together for 8 years and wanna stick together. We aren't snuggly bunnies, but I'm like that old sweatshirt you don't want to part with (even though it's 2 sizes too small). It's comfortable and that's the way it is with myself & MaiTai.
I've lost 3 pounds since becoming a "foster" cat. I'm looking pretty darn chic even if I do say so myself.
I'm really good with the other cats. I've developed a friendship with one of the resident meezers. She's pretty cool, even though she's a petite little flower. She panics when I chase her...and that's a LOL moment.
I am so priceless rescue isn't even going to charge an adoption fee to the lucky person who adopts MaiTai & myself. So I might not have points or blue eyes, but you get bragging rights to having a priceless kitty.
Check us out. It would be so nice to be home soon getting belly rubs from you

Dixie, the elderly one, is still with us. I believe her anniversary date is coming up.
She had a bit of a "spell" recently but a few days of sub-q fluids and some syringe feeding got
her right back on track. I think the kitten I recently fostered stressed her out. Good to see the old
girl back on her feet again.
Dixie, now about 20 years old, is doing quite well. Probably the only non-meezer on these pages but she came to be with a meezer for fostering. Dixie stayed and MaiTai (now at Rainbow Bridge) was adopted. Obviously Dixie was as well but she's still with us after 14 years. She recently had a dental and amazingly her first extraction. I know reality will kick in soon as Dixie ages; but our hope is to have her with us for a long time to come.

Notes from Home
I am sorry that I did not formally report that CLAYTON --VA11957 is now known as SAKI (or honey, baby, pretty boy,or any other name that suiits the situation). I took him with me to visit my sister in Florida from our home in Connecticut on a plane and he behaved so beautifully that I think we will go other times. The trip is only a bit more than two hours, and he didn't make a sound, beside entertaining a few fractious children! He sleeps with me in a king size ,but if I lift my head to check anything,he is delighted to curl quickly into the warm spot where my head rested on the pillow and tell me in no uncertain terms to get another pillow. He still thinks that if I get up at three in the morning,it is time for his breakfast.

The year with SAKI has been a pure pleasure. Sincerely, Janice

I'm back in foster care and looking for a new home where I can get LOTS of attention. I'm a super loving guy who wants to be with people as much as possible but other cats are not so fun. I LOVE to eat treats and will do my best to find them wherever they are. I can even get myself on the tip top shelf nearly at ceiling level! If you're looking for a playful cat who will keep you on your toes then ask about me because I'm ready to be yours!

BRUCE
Looking for a miniature white tiger look alike? Please find me a home with another cat who is young enough to appreciate a good wrestling buddy. I am not aggressive, but am a strong wrestler. My buddy right now is a 12 pound resident snowshoe, who is a good match for me!
My litter box habits are immaculate, and I use a cardboard scratching mat or a sisal cat tree to sharpen my claws. I am very healthy, and will most likely grow into a strong, active adult cat. I would be an excellent companion for your cat during the day while you are gone, and will not get in the way of your relationship with your resident cat.
I came into foster care very frightened, but would purr when pettted. Now, I follow foster mom everywhere she goes, and love for her to pet me and reward her with purrs. I am no longer just a cat's cat, but both people and cat's cat!

I know it has been a while since my last update, my apologies!
Bruce (Lonnie) is doing amazing. He has adjusted so well to his new environment and new family. He sleeps at my feet every night and makes sure to wake me up every morning so I know he’s ready for breakfast lol. He is the sweetest baby boy, always the first to pur as soon as he gets the slightest bit of attention. As you can imagine, having two young boys running around has me not far behind cleaning up all the messes they create, but the relationship Bruce and Batman have is all I could ever ask for. They are best friends.
Thank you again Sandra and all who were involved. This has been the greatest experience.

ASHLEY
Hi there,

I've been here for four months and would love to be home for my sweet 16...if not before. I long for a nice calm place to enjoy. I could live with another laidback, easy going cat or two just fine. I don't need anyone to boss me around, chase me through the house, or try any shenanigans with me.

My healthy is purrfect and I am well past the kitten stage now so you can keep the lacy curtains up and fancy rugs out. I know what's important in life too like you and me under the mistletoe. Wait - that season is over. How about you and me with hot candy kisses? Just keep thinking of you and me...me and you.

Love, Ashley Marie

March 20, 2018 It is with a heavy heart that I write to say we lost our sweet Ashley last week. Ashley suffered massive kidney failure which had been masked by the medicines she was taking for high blood pressure and a thyroid condition. She was a delightful member of our family for the two years she was with us. She taught us to appreciate each day with her. Our fondest memories include her elevated rump whenever she was petted and scratched at the base of her tail, her determined nightly meows to take inventory of her people and her incredible fondness for bathtub water after we had showers. I hope that she enjoyed our home and us as much as we did her.

It's been over a year since Ashley joined our home and we are happier and noisier because of it! She lives on our bed during the day when we are out and sleeps on the heated bathroom floor during chilly nights. She loves to purr and sit on my lap when I am not near Maisie the puppy. Alas Maisie and Ashley have never bonded. I speculate this is in part to her being declawed in the front so she can't swipe a paw and show who is boss. Life is good though since we have an invisible fence in the house which prevents the dog from accessing the upstairs. Ashley takes her food on the stairs while the dog watches and she roams free if she wants during the evenings when the dog is in her crate.

The big social news for Ashley is that she is completely bonded with our eldest daughter. When she is home from school Ashley can be found parading around her room, sitting on her bed and purring extra loudly. When she goes back to school Ashley roams in and out of her room meowing at a high volume.

Thanks to Siri's suggestion, Ashely is now taking meds for her Thyroid. We were concerned she might have kidney problems masked by the thyroid but so far so good. Our vet thinks she is in great shape considering her age and believes we will have her for many years to come. We are a lucky family to have found such a wonderful old lady. Thank you to all who cared for her and transported her to bring us together.

2/14/2018
Happy Gotcha Day to our sweet little Ashley. While her name is technically still Ashley I like to call her Kit Ca (because she's so sweet)t. We went to the vets the other day and were told she likely can't hear much or see much any more. No glaucoma just old eyes with a problem in her iris'. Ashley now has high blood pressure in addition to the thyroid issue so she is now on two meds. She had her blood/urine work done since she is taking in more fluids and losing weight. She gets plenty of dry and wet food but only weighs 4.5 pounds! She has some dental problems with her front teeth, which likely make it hard to eat but the vet is worried that with her kidneys in not great shape the surgery to remove the teeth would be too hard on her. She is getting more loving and bold in her old age. She now comes down stairs to torment the dog at night and still can jump into the tub to lick some fresh water each morning after the shower. She purrs like crazy and loves belly rubs. I can't begin to thank this organization for making her a part of our furrever family.

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.

Wow, 5 years and so much has changed in Isis’s world. She lost her buddy Hunter… he had kidney disease which he was being treated for but eventually I came to realize he was headed downhill very quickly and I made the decision to say goodbye to him before he truly started to suffer. He was my Dad’s cat and was at least 20 years old. I know Isis misses him greatly… they grew so close and loving with each other – it was like witnessing a mini miracle.  Since Hunter passed, Isis also lost my Aruban rescue dog, Dunkin (I found him outside of a Dunkin Donuts in Arangestead), who she knew and loved since her adoption. Dunkin and Isis shared a close friendship and could often be caught snuggling just about anywhere in the house. When I was initially deciding to adopt Isis my vet (and everyone else who knew me) said to me “Karen, maybe you should consider adopting a younger cat.” They said this because I lost my two Siamese love bugs Fallon and Gabbey within 6 months of each other… at 18 and 20 years old. I was devastated and it took me a LONG time to look for another Siamese to adopt. Once I found Isis I knew it was meant to be but those who care about me didn’t think it was a great idea to adopt a cat who was at least ten years old.  Obviously I didn’t listen to them! The night our vet came to our home to euthanize Dunkin, Isis laid down with him in his special spot, the large doggie bed in my office. She laid down facing him with her paw about a centimeter from his and purred and watched the entire process of saying goodbye to him. It was so heartwarming and touching, it just added to the tears we all had flowing. My vet kept saying how she was so sorry that she urged me not to adopt Isis and that she is obviously the Perfect Kitty. This past summer my ex step-mother asked me if I would take her kitty MC. Before they were divorced MC was my Dad’s cat as well but MC went with her after the divorce. Of-course I couldn’t say no. I did a slow introduction between him and Isis and they are ok with each other but they are definitely NOT buddies, at least not yet. But Isis is no longer the timid cat who hides in the corner. She puts MC in his place when need be. They don’t have crazy fights but they’re not friends! Overall she’s doing wonderfully and she is so loved.
