Notes from Home
Champ is doing very well on this, his six month anniversary, in his forever home. He is eating well, using his litterbox like the champ he is, and being affectionate, playful, and a bit bossy. He's adjusted to his new home and enjoys nothing better than hurling his toys all around the apartment, and any of Mom's things he can pick up or push off a table. He wakes me up at 6:00, asking for his breakfast, after which he goes to the patio door and checks out any birds, squirrels or chipmunks who are going by. Then it's off to leap around in the bed while Mom tries to make it. In the evenings, he likes to watch the fireflies and occasionally makes a leap at one that gets to close to the screen. He's good with company although he's not too keen on the housekeeper running her vacuum cleaner in his territory! Champ is a champ in every way and he's been a joy since day one.

1/30/2018

Champ is continuing to do well here in his forever home. He just had a check up which showed his kidney disease has progressed somewhat, but is still not requiring more than diet control, though I don't think it will be too long before we may need to supplement that with periodic subcutaneous fluids. However, he had gained a little weight, which indicates he's still not in the phase of the disease where he is beginning to lose ground.

He did give me a little scare a couple of weeks ago when he, despite my best efforts to keep him away from doing so, threw up a segment of Christmas ribbon, necessitating an emergency trip to the vet. Fortunately, there didn't seem to be any more hidden away inside, so sighs of relief all around!

Champ has become a wonderful lap cat and now spends most of his afternoons snoozing on my knees in blissful oblivion. I'm including some photos to support this information but will have to switch to my laptop to do so, as my current device doesn't have enough memory to do it. Be sure and check for them later!

Thanks, as always, for bringing us together.

Daisy Mae is settling into her new home wonderfully. She is eating well although still a little nervous so Rich or I stay with her in the morning and evening while she eats. She has adjusted well to her cat box and production there is normal. We have opened most of the rooms to Daisy to explore while we are home with her. When we leave, we leave her room and ours open to her. As she has taken to sleeping with us, our room is now hers and she feels safest there. She is still shy around visitors to house and hides when some one new drops by. I feel she will move past this as she adjusts to her home. She is very courteous and follows us around the house.

Leia is doing great! She is an absolutely joy! She keeps me on my toes-for sure! She no longer has any use for her bed as she finds mine much roomier. She is totally OBSESSED with strings and playing is mandatory on a daily basis.
She is the sweetest little girl and I'm so very happy she is mine!

It has been six months since Leia and I adopted each other. I am convinced she is child in a cat suit. She is the brightest, funniest, most vocal cat I've ever encountered. She absolutely demands my attention, and it is a joy giving it to her. She sleeps in her bed, uses her scratching post and gives kisses-could I really ask for anything more? I cannot imagine my life without her!
Update: Leia and I have been cohabitating for 4 years now. How time flies! She is just the best most beautiful cat ever! She has been and continues to be such a joy. Anyone who has come into my home has fallen in love with her. Meezers are truly a special breed!

FINN
Not sure whether you want a dog or a cat? Well, I could be the answer to your dilemma. I will follow you around like a puppy. I'm outgoing, curious, a little mischievous and playful, but I also enjoy lap time and don't need to be walked when it's cold or rainy outside. The best of both worlds.

Notes from Home
Finn is adjusting well to the new kittens. We have really enjoyed having him in our home.

He has settled down nicely with our kittens, and has been less nippy than when he first came to us, which is why we got kittens! They are all getting along beautifully...and play together, sleep together, groom together. We're so happy Finn is part of our family!

Finn has continued to get along wonderfully with the kittens, and we are so relieved he has settled down with the previous nippiness. Now he's all love and lap sitting!

Finn had a bout of sickness recently, some sort of infection that made his gums and back of his throat red/inflamed, but bloodwork came back normal. An antibiotic shot cleared things up and he's back to his fiesty self. We've so enjoyed having Finn in our house--can't imagine life without him! He plays with the kittens so nicely and they sleep/lick/eat together all the time. But Finn especially loves to sit on our laps, which we love. He's become part of the family and we're so glad we adopted him.

ERNIE
Almost two months inside where it's warm, lots of food and love. Poppa Peter put up a bird feeder outside just so I could watch the birdies!

While I'm still a bit of a shy boy, (Meowm Trish calls me the Turtle kitten-boy), today I discovered what fun it is to play with Dee Dee, the tiny kitten-girl who is also a foster meezerette here at the Italian B&B for Wayward Siamese. We romped around the family room much to Meown Trish's delight. She's so proud that I'm out and about with my tail up exploring. I like to play with the big orange silicon ball that's in my condo - it lights up!

I do speak up when it's time for meals, and use my litter box like the good kitten I am. Late at night, Meown can hear me playing with my toys. And do I love fresh cooked chicken and baked fish- YUM!

Do you have a young girl kitty to be my best friend?

Your boy Ernie

(note from Foster Meown Trish: Ernie is a bit under-socialized from living outside for nearly 6 months - His new family will need to very very patient and let him develop his social skills on his terms - he's making progress each day - his littermates are love bugs, so I think Ernie will be too, just on his own schedule! )

Notes from Home
Ernie was a withdrawn, scared little fellow, missing his best friend, little DeeDee. I slowly gained his trust by keeping him in his "safe"room, where he could survey the world from up on a perch in the towel closet. After a few days of feeding him favorite foods off my fingers, he let me pet and stroke him, rolling over and purring. I then allowed him to roam in the living room, and kept him from finding hiding places by putting his favorite sleeping Tee-Pee in the LR. Unfortunately, we had a vet appointment, I had to scruff him to get him to get into the carrier. He was good at the vet and deemed healthy, but we lost some of the trust-relationship that was so hard to achieve.
Ernie has evolved day by day... he has blossomed into a cuddler, a completely relaxed boy, who initially required time and patience and some trust gaining interventions using his favorite feather-toy to stroke him, then working my hand in instead of the feather! We still have a way to go, but he and Taylor are sleeping on my bed the last two nights. Ernie also attacks my Boston fern, which I in effect have given to him. More to come....Abi. See Utube video of Ernie and Taylor on their first night at "mau4meezers"


Three weeks later Ernie has grown, is a sleek muscular strong "teenager". He is very energetic, I need to play with him and his sister to diffuse some of their energy. He has taken to bullying Taylor, who is about half his size. She can stand up for herself, but sometimes I am afraid she'll be traumatized by it. Generally, they play together very well and share their food without territorial battles. (see Taylor's update)

Ernie and I are best buddies now. Its already been 6 months! With me he is so gentle and loving. He never gets enough playtime. Taylor, his sister is smaller and slightly younger and she tends to barge into Ernie's playtime and overtake everything. I try to keep Ernie feeling special by playing with him while Taylor is busy sleeping (or other things). Ernie dominates the food bowl and has a great appetite. Both kitties love to play in water, and I bought them a Drinkwell fountain for Ernie's birthday. You'll see from the pics that Ernie's eyes are vivid blue. My biggest problem is I want to show him off, and share him with friends. He has such severe stranger anxiety that very few friends have even seen him. He runs and hides under the bed. I really except Ernie as is....and he has come so far with me over the past 6 months that I'm hoping over time, this too shall pass.

This is the 1 Year anniversary of the day my boy came to me. We got to be best buddies and he shadows me everywhere except when he wants to get some daytime catnaps. He curls up on the fluffy down quilt every night, he actually sinks down into it so he's nice and warm. He still is shy with strangers but has come to trust some of my friends and my Dad the operative word is speak softly, no scary fast moves and Play, Play, Play! Ernie is not the kind of guy that can be bought with a good meal!
As for his playmate and sister Taylor.....the two of them are incorrigible! They chase each other around at night when I get home (want to play and eat) and wake me like good alarm clocks at 5AM every morning. Even on Sunday. They are evenly matched now in weight, although Ernie is a bigger cat. That means Taylor is too fat!
Ernie is very healthy, sleek and gorgeous. His back fur had darkened to a tawny-taupe color. his points and mask are nearly coal black, although he is technically "sable". I love him sooooo much and thank and bless the day he came to me.

It is the 2 yr anniv of Ernie arriving into my life and heart. His eyes are deep blue against his stunning, shiny black-seal pint mask. His last check up was excellent......no more tooth extractions needed. (During the fist year, E developed severe gingivitis and required all his molars to be extracted.) He eats quite well, and for a male cat prefers wet food over dry although does snack on Taylor's kibble. Ernie's favorite toy is the laser wand. I am carefully to keep it out of his eyes. He likes Da Bird and a wire wand toy that has sparkly Mylar and feathers. Some newer pictures.

Today Ernie is 3 yrs old. He is beautiful, sleek with a tawny back and dark sable points. His underside is a light buff/white with the black midline stripe. Eyes are deep blue. He is a one person cat and showers me with affection but gives all my friends a scared cold shoulder. I think we share a mutual admiration and I love to play with him. he even cuddles, which is very unusual for a feral cat. We have an affection seeking competition going on between Ernie and Taylor (my other rescue). In general they sleep together and play, but sometimes the play gets rough and one or the other will stalk their prey. At least they take turns. I am so fortunate to have Ernie. There is never a dull moment...Happy Bithday Dear Boy!
1/28/15- Its been 3 years with Ernie now.....My boy has become a loyal, faithful companion, so uniquely himself and a one-person-cat. He loves dogs but is so shy of other people. Ernie's antics keep me laughing and he loves to eat. I had his molars removed during his second year of life due to bone loss around his teeth, and that has not changed his eating habits. I am careful that he doesn't get large chunky food but he manages most everything else. He is sneaky and I have to keep him away from chocolate ice cream which is bad for him. He is a great companion for my little Taylor who teases him by playing coy. She sometimes has to fend off amorous advances (odd because they are both neutered). My Ernie and Taylor make my family complete. Thank all of you at the Siamese Rescue for bring Ernie to me, and a special appreciation to Trish Manfredi and Peter Kuck on this 3rd year anniversary!
6 year anniversary: Ernie is a true love. He is a good playmate for his sister and keeps me laughing everyday. Still a one person cat, he greets me at the door and curls up next to my legs at night. Taylor and I love him to pieces

Notes from Home
Aberdeen is such a sweetie. He loves to sit in laps. He loves to sit in the window and chatter at the birds and squirrels. He loves to play. Boy, does he love to play. He plays with such exuberance that we just can’t help but laugh out loud at some of his antics. He’s just discovered the bathtub, so he jumps in then waits for me to throw the ball then he comes flying (and boy, do I mean flying) out after the ball. Check out the pictures and see what a real cutie he is.

Aberdeen is doing great! He still is as exuberant as ever - we call him our "toddler with ADD"! We've added more toys and his favorites are the tunnels (2 long ones and 1 short one) and large pieces of paper on the floor (perfect for diving under). We think he would do really well on an agility course if we could just get him to pay attention (see ADD reference). I've attached more pictures - enjoy!

2014 -Can't believe it's been a year since updating Aberdeen's page. Well, it's been a year of crazy antics and lots of laughs - Aberdeen continues to entertain on a daily basis. He lives up to the Snowshoe breed - active, funny, affectionate (on his terms), oh, and did I mention active? Some days he just can't seem to settle down but if I pick him up and hold him like a baby in my lap he settles in and goes to sleep. Seriously he is just like a baby sometimes - as mentioned in my previous post, a baby with ADD. He and his sister Dora have worked out most of their issues. They are not cuddly with each other but will sleep right next to each other. and when the lights go out at night they start playing including chasing each other all around the house until Dora says, enough is enough!

2015 -Aberdeens favorite thing to do is watching the squirrels and birds. I put food outside various windows and he and Dora entertain themselves by going from window to window watching the action. All I have to say is "squirrel" when I see one in the window and Aberdeen comes running from wherever he is. I
read somewhere that Snowshoes are the clowns of the cat family. Well, then Aberdeen is holding up the standards of the breed because he is truly the funniest cat I have ever owned. He even sleeps funny - he finds every convoluted position to get into - usually legs hanging over his basket, paws in the air and the cutest expression on his face. I'm attaching some pictures of this funny feline - enjoy!

2017 - Aberdeen is doing well but he did have a challenging year. His sister Dora passed away early in 2016 (6 year old chocolate point) from lung cancer and he was lost without her. Even though they weren't cuddle buddies they did play and always slept near each other. They both enjoyed sitting in the windows together watching the birds and squirrels. The first night after Dora died he slept in her bed (see picture). He had never slept there before and it was so sad to see. The weeks passed by slowly for him - he wasn't interested in playing and his sadness was heartbreaking.

Even though we didn't feel completely ready to adopt again so early on we felt it was necessary for him so began the search for a companion for Aberdeen. See attached picture of Aberdeen helping with the computer search. We finally found Lily and welcomed her into our lives at the end of March and as you can see from the pictures they have bonded and Aberdeen is back to his playful self. (Initially we were concerned that Lily's youth (she was around 8 months old) might be too much for Aberdeen and at first it seemed that way but we think her kitten antics was what brought him out of his sadness. Now they are buddies and rumble through the house together (usually when the lights go out at night!) They share the window seats watching the birds and it's fun to watch Lily learn from Aberdeen.

2018 - Can't quite believe Aberdeen has been with us for 5 years. He is slowing down a bit - his estimated age when we adopted him was 3 so around 8 now and he is not quite as rambunctious as he use to be. But he still can give the laser light a good chase around the living room. And he and Lily still love watching the birds and squirrels - although he isn't quite as patient sharing a window seat with Lily as he was with Dora. But I suspect that's because Lily is still a bit more animated in the window seat and he just goes and finds another window to sit in when she won't settle down. Shared some new photos - Enjoy!

ZOEY
A little spice is nice, right? Well only if you've graduated magna cum laude from Siamese school, because I can be quite spicy. I guess that's what happens when your brain is working extra hard trying to figure everything out, and being a bit defensive when I think I'm challenged. I need a one or two person home, people very experience with sassy Siamese gals, an 'alpha' personality as Aunt Siri says. No other cats please, and definitely no small children. A dog? Well, I watch with interest, but suspect I could be bossy with that slobbering peon if pushed. Good in all habits, although active on my favorite scratching post, which does come with me.

Notes from Home
Zoey has been home for over a month now, and is doing well. She is extremely smart, and has so much energy that it's sometimes hard to keep up with her. She definitely has an "in your face" personality, but also is very loving with a wonderful purr that I've been blessed with ever since she arrived here. She definitely thinks she is large and in charge! I think she's glad to have a home where she can be herself. We're still working on what is or is not acceptable behavior here (like NOT jumping on kitchen counters or knocking things on the floor from whatever surfaces she can get on), but things are going well. She is a wonderful cat. I think that some of her crazy behaviors are from being bored, so I'm trying to work on playing with her as much as possible around work. She eats well, and is very good at using her litter box, though is quite energetic at digging in the litter. Oh well, at least I can deal with sweeping the floor as long as she uses the litter box! Sometimes she'll sleep on the bed with me at night (almost right from the first night), and sometimes she'll sleep in her millie bed. Her health seems to be good, and I haven't seen any reason yet to be concerned or take her to the vet. As high strung as she can be, I'm not sure how she'll be at the vet's office, but my vet is good at dealing with "difficult" cats! She has not been the least bit aggressive with me - just very high energy with a high play drive. I think that comes from being so smart and still being young.

5/7/17 - Zoey is doing quite well, still biting some when she gets over stimulated, but not quite as much. I'm trying to keep an eye on her more to anticipate the biting for attention stuff. I took her to the vet last month for a general checkup, and the vet was pleased. She weighed 9.15 pounds, so a bit of a weight gain. She eats quite well - I initially was able to get her to eat some canned food along with the dry, but I think it disagreed with her system (she would vomit soon afterwards). Now she's back to having just the Merrick dry food, which she keeps down. She loves to play, and loves it when I have the windows open so she can sniff the fresh air and watch the birds. She is very smart, so seeing different things going on outside helps keep her mentally stimulated. I've gone through a lot of the freeze dried chicken treats, which she adores. No, she's not getting a lot of them each day, since I want her to have a more balanced diet, but I think she deserves a bit of a treat every day. She does love knocking things off of bookshelves and other surfaces - I think it's mostly an attention seeking thing as she mostly does it when I'm home. She is a sweet little cat, and quite the personality!

7/12/17 - Zoey is settling down quite well - she doesn't attack me nearly as much as she did when I first brought her home. I was worried at first about dealing with her when I first came home after having surgery, but she spent a lot of time sleeping on my lap when I was sleeping. She's down to not eating canned food any more - either she refused it totally, or her tummy got upset afterwards and she'd vomit. The dry food seems to work well though - very little tummy upsets. She still loves the freeze dried chicken treats, but I have to ration that! She's been a lovely cat to have around!

1/25/18 - Well Zoey has been here about 1 year now. She's doing well, behaves at the vet when I take her in for a checkup & shots, and still has loads of energy. Yeah, she's still young, so it's normal. I wish I had space for a kitty agility course - I think she'd have fun with it. She's so smart and full of energy that it would be a good way to settle her down in the evening and keep her mind occupied. I have to make sure I play with her when I get home from work since she'll attack me trying to get attention if I don't. I'm sure the attacking is her way to get attention, not something done from being mean or spiteful. She's very vocal (typically meezer in that respect) and has a wonderful purr. The pet sitter who took care of her while I was out of town over the week of Thanksgiving just adored Zoey! She's really a beautiful cat with wonderfully soft fur and bright eyes. This is definitely a cat that needs an experienced and patient adopter - she's not for the faint of heart or first time meezer adopter. She's still very much "in your face", but is a sweet cat!

There is NOTHING, just NOTHING, not to like about me!

Notes from Home
Hello there,

It's been over 2 years and I think about providing an update almost every month... But I talk to myself, I chat with Siri in my head and most of all I talk to Sophie's previous family a lot. (And unfortunately didn't get to really post it.)

I picture her previous family anxious to get some news and feel good about having to let her go.

I really want them to know she is doing well, she is a happy snuggle bug. Our family adjusted to her as she adjusted to us. It was a challenging road for my romboucious 10 year old daughter back then... At first Sophie was not comfortable with a loud, bold, and most of the time "running" human being... But time did the trick. It's wonderful to see that now, my daughter is calm enough to enjoy Sophie come to her lap, sleep on top of her and purrr.


Sophie enjoys the sun that comes from the bedroom window, is eating a healthy grain free diet and sometimes likes one brand of wet fish food. However she is still very picky and will only eat that one (with 2 ingredients in it) . Note - no chicken/duck or turkey ever for this one. She won't eat it.

There was a clear change around 1 year ago. It felt like Sophie had reached a new comfortable place with us and her new life. Maybe that was the final attachment moment for her. She became closer to me, sleeping on my face (literally) and coming to my lap frequently.

I have to admit that having her sleeping on top on my pillow every night is quite something - she will start as a long and lean kitty between my head and the headboard... Then will start to roll into a little fur ball - and there I am, no pillow left, living on the edge... Oh well :) perks of love I guess.

Still VERY talkative. We have long conversations about "things" :) Mostly I imagine her asking me - when are you coming back to bed? why do you have to move so much when I'm on the couch next to you? send these guests away, I don't want them around anymore :) Her manners are still impeccable.

We kept Soph's original bowls and toys. She brings us the little pink mouse to play and fetches as she seems to have done before. She never slept on her bed. I gave up... Im probably the one sleepping on "her" Queen size bed :) She also doesn't like boxes or water (which my previous Siameses did) but will keep me company, by my side, on my lap or monitoring from the bed as long as I'm home.

So there we go. Please thank you all again, all the volunteers, the wonderful transport team that had her meowing her 3 hour ride to meet me. It was a very stormy afternoon - it may have muffled the sound a bit...

You all are always on my mind when Sophie is sweet and cuddly, melting in my arms.


It was meant to be.
Love, Fabiana, Cecilia and Soph
