MR MEEZER
Mr. Meezer here (or just Mr. works).
My people are moving overseas so I find myself back with Siamese Rescue. Hey it's all cool.
I have a significant urge to go out in the big scary world, and I was allowed to prior to coming back into the Siamese Rescue fold. Now I want back out but this lady here isn't letting me. She says I'll get used to being inside where it's safe, warm and flealess....and then she reminded me there are coyotes and fisher cats in her neighborhood. I'll just have to learn to adjust cause she's not caving to my demands (hate it when that happens).
I'm not too crazy about the dog that lives here - I do my very best to avoid her. The cats are okay though. The old lady cat hisses at me but the old guy cat will hang out with me. I like that!!! Well not the old lady cat - I keep waiting for her to hit me but she hasn't....yet.
Ask about me to learn more - I'm a big gentle sweet guy.

New pictures!

All that talk about me not wanting to go outside - boy did I have them fooled! I was just biding my time, planning my adventure until I was comfortable in my new digs. I've been watching birds and chipmunks and squirrels for a while, but after I saw another cat in MY yard, I dashed out the door while Mom was putting the porch cushions out. Unfortunately, she foiled my attempt. Drat!

I've settled in nicely in my new home. I sleep in Mom & Dad's bed most of the night. I wake up with the birds around 4:30 am and try to tell Mom & Dad that it is time to get up. Sometimes I even come lick their hands or toes, but they tell me its too early. Then I go wander to the living room and watch birds out the window until it is FINALLY time for breakfast. My goodness! Can't they tell I am STARVING - it's been so long since dinner! Mom or Dad gives me some kibbles when they get up, and then Matthew gives me a little wet food when he gets up. (Sometimes I have to go and tell him to get up.). Mom & Dad had to put child locks on the cabinets, because I was trying to get it myself (I am very clever). After breakfast, I run around like a wild man, and then we play with my toys for a while before I take a nap. Ah, this is the life!

BAIHU
Hi folks, it's me Jasper!

Foster mom Jan, says I'm just the cutest little meezer she's seen in a long time...funny I get that comment a lot! Probably due to my just a little bit wedgie face, nubbin' tail and my huge blue, blue eyes.

Auntie Giselle rescued me and a bunch of my brothers and sisters from a lady who had just WAY too many kitties. Now we're all safely tucked into various foster homes and doing well but we need NEW people to give us forever homes.

I love to play with my brother Jazz, the Piano Man. Did you read about him? and to climb all over my three story playpen. I can;t wait to get out and meet the other meezers here but it's going to be awhile before I can tussle with all of them. I hear foster mom talking about vetting, vaccinations, and microchips. What's that all about ? Whatever it is I know she'll take good care of Jazz and me 'cause she already loves us SOOOOO much. We're just kind of like that, a little purring, burrowing, addictive pair of meezers.

Hit that button and ask about me soon!
Notes from Home
Baihu was formerly named Jasper. He was born in the year of the white tiger, so that's his new name in Mandarin. Baihu has grown into a stately, loving cat. He is always inquisitive and brave. He handles dogs very well, better than his bro. He and his brothers are partners in crime, tearing through the house and getting into all sorts of scraps. Baihu particularily like to stand up on his hind legs next to the parrot cage and try to bat the bird. The parrot would bang on his cage and give him some threatening parrot gesture. It's a game between two species. The parrot's time out of his cage has been curtailed because I am not sure of Baihu's reaction yet. I don't quite trust him with the bird loose. In his quiet moments, he would come and flop himself on my lap. Both cats sleep with me and would poke me in the morning to get their food, but I don't always take their hint. After all, who's the boss?


My brave and outgoing Baihu. What a great cat! He's always the first to explore any new situation or people. He checks up on the other cats if they are in distress. He gives slow eye blinks and love bites. He loves to play and loves to snuggle. He also loves knocking things off any surface and likes to tear up things too, but who's perfect.

WANPI
Introducing the "Piano Man"!

No, not Billy Joel, it's the REAL piano man....Jazz, the amazing meezer with lots of extra toes!

Jazz is a four paw polydactyl boy with oodles of purr-sonality and with these amazing feet, he sure can go to town makin' biscuits! If the piano man gig doesn't work out, maybe he could become a "masseuse"

He's cute as can be, weighs just 2.5 lbs and needs to complete all his vetting procedures before he'll be ready to go home in early to mid August.

Jazz could go home with his brother, Jasper or either kitten can be adopted as singletons. Though they will need to have a home with other cats/kittens to play with as they are active little guys who love to play and tussle.

Be sure to get your inquires in early, these two fabulous boys are just too cute to miss!

Wanpi (formerly named Jazz) is living up to his name. Wanpi means "naughty" in Mandarin. He was the runt of the two brothers and now weighs almost a pound more than bro. He LOVES to eat and is showing a bit of belly bulge. Food is not left out or Wanpi will polish off every bit. He is still on lysine to help his immune system. Other than a teary eye, he is in fine health. His extra toes come in handy in jumping and grabbing "da bird", one of his favorite toys.He can spring higher and has more power than bro. The two of them play hard and have already destroyed a couple of ceramic pots, a crystal cat, two rugs, and killed several plants. An arrangement of artificial chinese lantern branches have been denuded. They pluck off the lanterns one by one and bat them around like hockey putts. Wanpi will purr immediately when he is picked up and the motor doesn't stop. He doesn't really like to be held, but will sit next to me. He is a clown and an absolute joy to have.



Wanpi is still the most lovable big guy. He gives the most intense massages, using both front and back legs with all their multiple digits. Still on lysine for his permanent weepy eye and he has slowed down a bit and doesn't tear through the house like he used to. Tried putting him on a diet of Fat Cat Natural Balance food, but he didn't care for it. He actually doesn't eat much for a big cat, so we are leaving him alone. Will still not touch wet food. He purrs the minute someone picks him up, and he's got the loudest motor. He enjoys our latest addition, Nikko the wedgie Siamese. Both Wanpi and his brother Baihu treats Nikko like a younger brother.

AIRELLE
Cute, shy little girl.
Notes from Home
We welcomed Airelle to our home last August 8th, 2015. She was very reserved at first, but slowly she warmed up to us.
Nemo, our 3-year-old Seal Point Siamese fell in love at the first sight. After a week of isolation, Airelle is finally enjoying her new home completely. The first night together was incredible, i.e. playing and running around until 3:00am. Such a perfect match! She also visited our vet and received a clean bill of health.
Airelle is such an adorable kitten, great personality, very sweet. We love her.
Thank you to everyone who helped us during this process, especially the Meezer Express drivers, who had done such a wonderful and incredible job!

9/10/2015
Time passed so fast. It's been a month ... Airelle is very happy and comfortable in her new home. Nemo, our male cat is delightfull with his new companion, playing and running around. Airelle is doing very well: 5.5lb, 5 months.

2/8/2016
I can't believe it passed 6 months already... looks like it was yesterday when we got this little angel to our lives. Airelle was the best gift after we lost our 17 years-old female siamese cat. Airelle is always happy, plays all the time and a great companion for me, my husband and for Nemo.
Nemo loves her as everybody who met her. Airelle has been in a vet for regular check-ups and everything is great, 11.2lb. Thank you for all your support.

08/08/2016
Today we are celebrating Arielle first Cativersary … Everybody is very happy: Nemo, my husband and I. I can't believe it’s been 12 months since this gorgeous meezer has been with us. She is very attached to our family, follow us around the house, plays with her toys and with Nemo. They are perfect to each other. Airelle has been visiting the vet for regular check-ups and everything looks great.

Connie seems to be adjusting well. She loves to cuddle and play. The only thing that is a bit of a mystery is her microchip. We went to the vet and he could not find it anywhere on her. I don;t think she actually got chipped despite having the paperwork.

Manny is still a bit distressed. We still keep them separated for most of the day and swap out their spaces. He is starting to groom her a bit, but as soon as she gets active, he will stalk her, chase her, and bite her neck. Connie is starting to pounce on him and fight back. I think Manny is starting to get the hint. I'm hoping they will calm down within the next few weeks. Still a work in progress but we are working hard on it.

DROGON
I am Ser Jorah. You can just call me Jorah.

I am the brave one who protects all the others, especially Dani and Missa.

I am bold and adventurous. I am the first one to explore and check out new things and places before letting the others know it is safe.

Just like on GoT.......

I go with my sister Daenerys!
Notes from Home
My husband was bound and determined to change his name to Khal Drogo, since he and his sister are the Khal and Khaleesi of the house. But I loved that their foster mom had named him Jorah because he was Dany's protector so we compromised with Drogon, in honor of her still-faithful dragon who swept her up out of the fighting pits of Mereen to save her. He has been her loyal servant since the first day they came home. He explored the room and reported back to her that it was ok. He showed her where the litter box and the food were and explored both first so she would know they were safe. He takes great care of his sister and is a first-class snuggler. He recently discovered the couch and blankets and is a big fan of both! He is very loved and happy in his new home :)

9/8/15 Today is Drogon's one-month gotcha day! He is eating so much and growing so fast, which is awesome because he's strong and healthy. He's mama's cuddle bug for sure and is happiest on my lap with a nice fluffy blanket. His points are getting so bright and although he was always adorable, he gets more beautiful every day. He is such a loveable, playful guy and we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful addition to our home.

We just celebrated our two-month anniversary with the kitties! Drogon is the softest, sweetest kitty I've ever seen. He's recently adopted a fleecy blanket that he smurgles and it's really adorable. He's getting so big and his beautiful little face gets darker every day. He his sister are so very loved and we're so thankful they're here with us!

Wow, I just got an email saying it's been 6 months since our babies came home to us! They are such beautiful, playful, joyful kitties and they are getting SO big, SO fast. They are happy and healthy and absolutely loved. When they first came home to us, we thought Drogon would be our little troublemaker. Boy, were we wrong! Daenerys is actually the one we have to keep an eye on, into everything, onto everything, and so adorable we can't help but laugh. Dro is still a total snuggle bug and the more chatty of the two. Anytime I pick Dany up for snuggles, Dro sits at my feet and yells because he's jealous!

8/8/16 it's Drogon's first cativersary with us! He is the softest, fluffiest, snuggliest, sweetest cat in the universe. He is Mama's boy for sure and he follows me around all day. He has the most irresistible sky blue eyes so he pretty much gets whatever he wants. He loves playing with his toys and chasing bugs!

DANI
Even though I am the smallest I was named after a Queen! I am Daenerys but my friends call me Dani.

And yes, we are staying with the GoT theme:)

Notes from Home
Daenerys was very timid and shy when we first brought her home. She took a long time to come out of her carrier and look around at her new house. Luckily, she had her handsome, fearless brother Drogon with her to ease the transition. Eventually she would let us pet her when she was safe at the top of her beloved cat tree and within the last few days she has approached us for pets and attention. She loves the couch and snuggling up in the blankets with Mama!

9/8/15 Today is Daenerys' one-month gotcha day! It's unbelievable how she's grown and blossomed in only one month. She is one of the loveliest kitties I've ever seen and her little face gets more beautiful every day. She is absolutely the Khaleesi of our home but she's a benevolent ruler :) she was shy at first but now she loves pets and cuddles! She has adopted a squishy bean bag pillow and it's so funny to watch her attack it before she lays down on it. She is a definite mama's girl and is never far from me for long. She especially enjoys sleeping on my feet while i do my hair and makeup in the morning. We're so in love with her and thankful that she found us!

We just celebrated our two-month anniversary with Daenerys! As i write this, she's snuggled up beside me under our favorite fluffy blanket purring . She is my little shadow and is so playful and silly. She is growing every day but is still very petite compared to her moose of a brother! She loves chasing her tail and hiding behind things so she can jump out at me. My husband and i have nicknamed her Tiny Devil because every inch of her is trouble... but it's the cutest trouble we've ever seen! Her points are getting darker and more purpley and she's just a beautiful little girl. It's nearly impossible to get a good picture of her because she's always on the move but she does bless me with cuddle time every day :)

8/8/16 wow, I can't believe a year has gone by so quickly! Daenerys is my sweet, beautiful baby girl. Her favorite activity is carpet walking, which consists of plopping down on that carpet and dragging herself across the room using her claws. She still loves her beanbag pillow and her cat tree and she adores crunchy food. She likes to pull out one little nugget and put it on the floor before she eats it! She is so special and very loved.

Dominic..
Notes from Home
I can't believe it's only been one month since Haruki became my room mate! It feels like he's been with me for much longer. Since he recovered from his little bout of not eating and the syringe feedings & anti-nausea meds, he's blossomed into a playful, curious, happy, healthy & contented guy. He makes me laugh daily, hiding behind furniture and then jumping out to scare me. Thanks to everyone at SRC for the great work you do and for being my kitty matchmaker!

Many happy updates to come!
D'Ann

Greetings! And happy six-month anniversary to Haruki and me indeed! I still find it hard to believe we've only been together 6 months. No lies, there have been some growing pains -- or boundary testing, to be more exact -- but very few of these. The majority of the time, Haruki is sweet, mellow, well-adjusted and ready to meet anyone who walks in my door. A highlight was Christmas. He flew without any issues with me to visit family, adjusted to his new surroundings in less than 24 hours and made sure to wish everyone he met a happy holiday. On Christmas Eve, he lay in the middle of family & friends as we unwrapped gifts, playing with wrapping paper and just generally enjoying himself. Needless to say, I'm completely smitten. I've attached a picture of Haruki assuming his favorite position.

Thanks again to everyone at SRC,
D'Ann

Siamese Rescue,

I'm a little delayed in providing you with our "First Cativersary" update since Haruki and I were busy moving into a new home. He's settled in beautifully (as you can tell from the attached photo), which is more than I can say for myself (I'm still unpacking and moving furniture around!). He's been such a dream boy and charms everyone he meets. I really couldn't ask for a better companion!

Thanks again!
D'Ann & Haruki

Greetings! I can't believe Haruki & I are celebrating 2 years together! He's moved into my life so seamlessly & stolen the hearts of everyone who's met him. Looking forward to many many more updated & anniversaries!

ASHLEIGH
Boy, have I had a rough couple of weeks!

Somehow, I ended up on the streets of Washington County. When I finally got to the shelter I had so many fleas and bites that I got a skin rash and my beautiful hair started to fall out:( The nice people at the shelter got rid of the fleas and gave me medicine for my rash. Now my fur is starting to grow back, but some of it is darker than it used to be and still pretty short. Foster mom says it gives me "character" whatever that is!

So what I need now more than anything is my very own forever home where I can stay and become my beautiful self again.

Can you help me? If you can, please ask about Ashleigh:)

Notes from Home
It has been a rough two days, but I know things will improve with time. My three cats are traumatized by the intruder, Ashleigh. Now that SHE sleeps on me at night, the others stay away. Raja and Saki are now hissing madly at each other...why, I don't know. Raja stays behind the couch where I feed him. Saki hisses and runs in desperate fear from Ashleigh. After a day and night, Sienna and Ash watch each other carefully without hissing now. Ashleigh bit (a bad bite) and scratched me in anger while playing, so I am careful about holding a toy while playing. She has tender moments and for no reason gets antsy. The photo of them eating, is the first time today that they ate "together" and I put their dishes at a distance from each other. I write the problem issues to show that adjustment takes some time...as long as we are all patient. Whew!

9/7/11 Things are much better, but not great YET. Now Ash sleeps by herself and the other three are back upstairs with me. Saki still tries to get her to play, but she screeches and fends him off. Raja growls but they drink from the bathroom faucet without a problem. They eat well together. Ahleigh still gets antsy in the mornings and plays "rough" (we don't allow hard bites); she sleeps on the couch and chair (her spots), as though she always belonged. Her fur is all back now and she is more of a "people" cat than a cat cat. Hangs around my feet and walks on the computer keys as soon as I get on. She may have been on the streets longer than we suspect because she does have anger issues (survival modes) and is more of a loner. She has a home now.

1/8/12 Ashleigh is part of the family (in her own way). She is still a bit of a recluse and will not bond with the other three cats. The 2-year-old male taunts her at least once a day and she lets out a scream with her ears down...does not attack back. She does not play with the laser beam, the feather or any other toys...nor does she run with the others. She sleeps on/by me at night (and all the others are back on the bed now too) and on my lap at TV time. I have been feeding her regular food for a couple of months now and her fur feels and looks good. She lets me massage/pet/hold her without a problem. I still think she is older than three, or just mentally challanged. Her eyes are still and very sad even though the vet said the blood work shows a healthy cat. Nevertheless...she is home. Thank you.

8/20/12 Ashleigh is about as fine as she will be. Still reclusive, but it works for all of us. She tries playing for about a minute with me and at times with one of the cats. We're all happy here.

8/5/13 Ashleigh (now renamed Spooky because of her personality) is still a loner. She will be vicious "under the influence" of catnip, so that is a no-no for her. After cortisone treatments every few months, and now no treatments at all and without making any food/environmental changes, her skin problems have subsided (which leads me to believe she could not handle stress). She now knows she is safe and loved, so we are all fine with our situation.

8/6/14 Spooky is 50 percent improved! She had chewed off the end of her tail; the vet bandaged it until we could get the operation; she pulled it off and chewed off more tail. I suggested they remove the entire tail, which they did. An evil spirit must have been living in the tail all these years. She is not antsy, not chewing her skin, okay with catnip, and slowly interacting with the others. She even tried to play with a toy for a minute. A nice lap cat. And most importantly, she now has blue eyes. For three years, I could not see the blue unless I held her in the light...the eyes were always dilated and black, as though she was anxious or high. Now she is relaxed and content. Love it! No pics right now.

8/7/16 Spooky is enjoying her life here. She is more relaxed and content. The male trouble-maker does not bother with her very much anymore and she keeps to herself all the time. She has a regular routine and seems to enjoy that...a little dish of milk every morning. I give her a lot of love and attention; she looks at me once and a while. Seriously, she is doing fine. Tried to upload a photo, but it didn't work.

NATE
Mature handsome dude looking for one on one situation, I am one that is very
comfortable with the men. Always love a good time, but I'm independent, just
as you are, and we can agree to do our own thing, then get back together for
a night on the couch, though we may compete for the remote as we discuss
which ball game to watch (I'll bring my own ball).

If you're looking to try before you buy and like some cattitude in your life, I might
just be the one. Click above my picture and I'll tell you more, maybe we can negotiate a
contract.

Notes from Home
Nate met his new vet, Dr. Michael Haney of Cocoa Veterinary Hospital, yesterday and was a complete charmer during his wellness exam. He did sneak out and tour the back a little bit, but let Dr. Haney pick him up and bring him back to the exam room. He weighed slightly over 9 lbs (consistent with his weight two weeks ago) and was judged to be in overall good health. Dr. Haney noted the heart murmur but said he had a good strong pulse. His back molars could use a cleaning, but that will be coordinated with the repeat EKG requested in 6 months or so. His ears have something and Dr. Haney sent us home with Entederm and instructions to use it every two days or so. He also has a raw spot/sore on his jaw maybe caused by scratching a back tooth that may bother him. That is to be treated a couple times a day.

Nate alternated between panting with his mouth open and seeming unstressed until he just seemed to collapse in relaxation on the exam table. He was comfortable with everyone and delightfully snuggly with me, seeming to take comfort in my proximity.

Not a fan of car rides, Nate was very vocal on the way home, but held no grudge as he exited his carrier and jumped on his window seat for the afternoon.

Although he is not to engage in much activity, right now it's up to Nate, and he does enjoy periodically dashing around the house. It's impressive with the tile floors! He hasn't deigned to use his new cat tower except to recover treats that I hide in it. He plays enthusiastically with his toys, especially a catnip carrot and the wand from Donna, but his completely self-sufficient. When I try to play he walks away ;)

Nate sleeps with me at least part of every night and his biting seems to be an odd attempt to play. Sometimes it just comes out of the blue. Most of the time I can tell when he's done being petted and stop before he reaches out.

I think that's about it ... we're doing really well. I have posted photos of His Nateness on my FB page, etschumacher, and will try to upload here in time.

11 October 2015.
Just uploaded some photos of Nate around the house. The injunction about food, I learned, extends to treats. I thought I was pretty cat-educated, but didn't think to check that "duck flavored" treats contained only save ingredients. Nate is a few bare spots on his neck, ears, and one leg. I am mortified. Not sharing THOSE images. But I have found single-ingredient treats and will purchase along with his specific food this month.

The period dashing around the house has increased to regular activity. It's a little silly, since the floors are tile, but he does manage to build up some momentum and I stay OUT of his way. Interestingly, I haven't heard coughing (heart murmur-related) in the last week. He has even started playing with a wand toy when I'm holding it.

Don't know what the deal is about biting, but he doesn't do it when I put ointment on his sores or clean ears. He sits quietly and then dashes away when let go. In fact, that's why I wanted to give him treats, as a reward. Ha. Nate really does love his food and I am feeding a quarter can per meal, which is a little more than instructed.

The photo that is really close up of his face is the result of me taking a photo to show Donna that Nate has decided to be a lap cat. On his own terms, of course, but there we are.

He's pretty much perfect. He's started to let me comb him (with a flea comb, very lightly, just to help his coat) and I think he is happy here. I am VERY happy he is here!

I tried to send an update and add photos, but something didn't work right.

Nate hates to be combed but loves to "play-fight with the hand" ... it's aggressive, but not mean. So, I humor him until the blood starts dripping. He is a perfect gentleman for medicine, so I think it's a fair trade.

Nate is very active and scrambles all around the tile floor, over furniture, around the rugs ... the house is his domain. Donna said he didn't talk much to her, but now he chatters and grumbles all the time. He talks to the birds, the lizards, to me, and to his food. Lots of opinions to share.

He went to the vet for a case of bad breath (which I noticed via the biting events) ... vet cleaned his gums a bit but doesn't want to sedate for a full cleaning. He checked the heart and couldn't find a murmur, so maybe after a cardiac exam, we'll explore options. Otherwise, the picture of fine health.

Nate's latest EKG last month was good, but he remained very skinny. Cardiologist recommended an ultrasound and shortly after that appointment, Nate's abdomen filled with fluid. The ultrasound showed three growths on his liver. 700 ml of fluid was drained and we went home content. However, within a few days he abdomen filled again. He was uncomfortable even with subq fluids, cerenia, and gabapentin and struggled in the litterbox. Made difficult decision to euthanize on Tuesday afternoon, 2 August. Thanks everyone who helped bring him into my life.
