Notes from Home
Tony continues to be a fun, active presence in our household. His antics are fun to watch and he can keep us entertained for quite a while. He has chosen my husband Craig to bond with...when Craig is working away at the computer Tony is often nearby sleeping or just chatting away. We all agree that he has been a wonderful addition to our family.

3/20/2016--hard to believe it has been two years since Tony entered our lives. He continues to be a fun, active, presence in our household, and as he grows out of kittenhood he spends a lot more lap time with us which Craig and I enjoy. Tony's favorite thing from us is vigorous scratching on the top of his head. I have become a transporter and enjoy working with Siamese Cat Rescue Center.

SAMI
Evicted? That means we all lost our home. And then my tearful family took me to that scary shelter place. But now I'm safe in this place foster mom calls rescue, and she promises I'll have a new home soon. i hope so, because I'm pretty scared and unsettled with all of this.

Better pictures of me very soon - I'm a pretty blue point, with white feet and a "got milk?" mustache.

No new pictures yet
Notes from Home
I am full of sorrow as I write this, but my beloved "Sami" died peacefully on February 1 of this year. She had been so traumatized before she was rescued by Siamese Rescue that she never really recovered. When I brought her home, she refused to eat, and my awesome foster, Jackie, had to come over and help me to force-feed Sami. We only had to do that once or twice, and she seemed better. She would eat, and she was safe and loved, but she only trusted me.

A few years later, she refused to eat again, I refused to let her go, and after she realized that I would not give up on her, she seemed content and happy and we had several good years. This past winter, however, she started to fade. Nothing I fed her interested her more than a few bits, and, although she should only have been 11, she had the appearance of a very old cat. Numerous trips to the vet discovered nothing but a thyroid issue, which we medicated, but still she failed.

I truly believe that her early abuse took too great a toll on her emotionally, and she could not overcome it, even though I loved her as much as humanly possible and provided her with the best of everything. She slipped away peacefully in my home, and lies buried and safe at last in my garden. I grieve for her.

CARLYBIRD
I'm known as the Carlybird because I love more than anything to sit in this great cat tree and watch what's going on. I don't mind the other cats as long as they don't overwhelm me, and I feel the same about people. I've now learned to ask for attention and I can be a FLIRTY bird too! I just dare you to watch my videos and resist!

Notes from Home
Carly's mini-tree has arrived and been set up. She's been in it a few times, but she still prefers the privacy of our bedroom to exploring the house, so she spends a lot of time in the traditional cat tree there or curled up on our bed. More pictures will come eventually, but if she sees me she wants my hands busy petting her, not messing with a camera LOL.

5/5/2014 - Carly continues to be a joy. I've been crazy busy and travelling a bit which is why the lack of recent updates. She now comes halfway down the stairs to remind us when it's mealtime, and often goes down the hall to John's office to lapsit while he works, but otherwise is mostly to be found at the top of the cat tree in our bedroom. She's learned that the dogs aren't supposed to be on the bed so she'll make a big show of getting petted by the both of us, walk *almost* close enough for a dog to sniff her and then hop down onto the floor on "her" side of the bedroom, where they can't go. We're amused. Hard to say if she'll eventually feel comfortable enough to hang out downstairs, but we're totally fine with whatever she decides. She's a very purry sweetheart of a cat and we adore her :-)

6/9/2014 - Carly has come downstairs a few times all by herself now. We can see her confidence growing day by day. Every night, she makes a flying leap from the cat tree to the bed for a nice, long snuggle session when I get in bed, and then repeats the maneuver when John gets into bed later. Which means my sleep is interrupted because I serve as a landing pad and then have a purring cat walking back and forth on me and making biscuits. We'll just call it my nightly massage. She's much too sweet to ever get mad at her!

9/18/2014 - 6 months already! Carly has now survived the invasion of my daughter and her family for 3 weeks (including 2 other cats and a toddler) and remained happily ensconced on her cat tree, even when one of the other cats got into the room and ate her food. Carly merely observed. I got her more food . The intruders are gone now and she has resumed gradually checking out other parts of the house. She still is an angel about using her litterbox and scratching post, loves chasing laser lights and toys, and loves her bedtime cuddle sessions so much she comes downstairs to get me if I'm not in bed by about 10. She's adorable, and adored. We are so very fortunate to have her as part of our family :-)

3/18/2015 - Carly's 1 year adoptaversary! We still can't believe how lucky we are to have found Carly. She is unbelievably sweet, social, and just one of the nicest cats I've ever met. She spends a lot of her time hanging out on the stairs watching household activity, and makes sure to get pets from visiting humans of all ages (including my toddler granddaughter). She has reached detente with the younger Wolfhounds and now consents to be sniffed by them, although she doesn't hang out with them. Give it a few more years ;-) She will come down and hang out on the couch with me if the dogs are sleeping in another room. I look forward to our nightly bedtime snuggles and she now sleeps with/on us for part of the night, soothing us with her purrs. We're still in love with her!

3/18/2016 - Typed this up once and it went into the ether ;-) Can't believe it's been 2 years already! Carly spends lots of time downstairs now, sleeps on top of me most of the night, and has started begging at the dinner table (which we gently discourage). She still insists that every visitor to the house pet her. She no longer spends much time on top of her cat tree, especially since she discovered there are way more birds to be seen out of the downstairs windows. In short ... she's great! And well loved.

PAXTON
Hi!

Please let me introduce myself! My name is Paxton, the purring machine, and I am looking for the purrfect home. I am easy to please, I like to fetch furry mice and I have great habits. Are you the purrson for me? Well, give me a click and let's find out!

Purrs and biscuits,

Paxton
Notes from Home
Paxton is such a love and a real foodie! He is such a good boy. He pretty much owns the house now and plays with two of my cats Sugar Bear and Bagera all the time. He particularly likes the small white mouse toys and a plastic bouncing ping pong ball that makes him leap into the air.



Paxton's second year anniversary is here and he is doing wonderful and essentially is the alpha cat in the house! He is such a love. He continues to be a huge foodie! His favorite thing to open our cupboards in the kitchen and check things out. He still plays fetch with his little white mouse and loves our to wrestle with our other cats. We love him so much!


Paxton's third year anniversary is here and I can't believe it! He is doing wonderful and continues to be a huge foodie. His favorite playmate now is Sheena who used to chase him around when he first got here. They are best buddies now. He sleeps with us every night right in between us. He is our self appointed alarm clock in the morning. A funny thing he does first thing in the morning to wake us up is climb up by the headboard of the bed and make the picture hanging there move like it is going to fall on our heads. This is guaranteed to get us up. LOL He is such a love!!!

MAVERICK
Oooo La-la, What a GORGEOUS pair of boys!
Maverick is still slowly checking out his new situation, but following Goose's lead. These boys must go home together, they have been together since birth. Maverick depends on Goose to scope out the situation, then he will join in the adventure.
They love to talk, with each other and with you.
They won't be here very long, you'd better be quick to click if you want to enjoy the adventures of Maverick and Goose.

Well, I finally got my act together and I am ready to leave this cell. I hope my next stop has plenty of wide open spaces. I've been complaining about being locked up for so long, but foster mom tells me it's only for a little while. Well long enough, I'm going home, my home, my new home, and I'm taking Goose with me. See ya!

Maverick is doing very well, he has gotten quite a shine to his fur, with a little fancy feast and a lot of patting.
I kept their names, anyone who has one knows how smart they are and they will answer to it, He loves to jump up on my desk and demand attention, my desk and monitor are covered with his hair. He has relaxed quite a bit and loves company, most cats hide when people come, not these two, they like to be in the center of things,
They love spring and sitting in the windows watching the birds, and I have lots of pictures I will upload later today,


11/7/13 Mr. Maverick has gotten a little bigger, 14 pounds and will be on a semi diet , not that he is fat ......... he is very muscular with a little fluff about his middle, she suggested cutting the dry food and just giving them a little at a time, because its like a bag of chips, they will eat it if its there, but Dr. Anne was impressed with their beauty and there were other meezers there coming and going while we were there.


The boy have a new facebook page called "The Tails of Goose and Maverick" and I will upload new pictures more often. They are both beautiful and still adjusting but follow me around like little ducklings and sit on the back of the couch if I an on the couch and if I am in bed they are in bed . they love my office , one sits on the mouse pad and the other sits right across and watches every move.

St. Patrick's day 2013, my boys anniversary of coming home. Maverick is doing great, he loves chicken and you would think he was a dog they way he begs when he knows we are eating chicken, just gave him some for breakfast. He loves being brushed and is so shiny and bright eyed. They both had their vet apt in November and he was about 13 pounds and a little heavy but not bad. He loves sitting in the window or on the back or the couch and watching the birds. They are together and if one is missing he calls for the other one. really nice bonded pair. They will have a little tiff now and then over a nice place to sit or a treat and Mav usually wins. He is definitely the boss. They are doing great after one year.

4/26/14 It's almost a month since Maverick became an only child. He is doing surprisingly well, become quite a snuggler , likes to sleep now either on my pillow on touching me. He is much more affectionate than ever. I will post a new picture today too of my bed buddy.


3-17-16, Happy St. Patrick's Day. Maverick is doing great and looking good. He is on Facebook at "We are Siamese if you please, Maverick, Princess and Peanut" Last fall he became big brother to a pair that looked very much like he and goose. Their birthday is just 3 months before his. They are all still getting used to each other and love to chase each other around. I still miss Goose, but he is not suffering anymore and Maverick has moved on without any problems and loves to sleep on top of me every night.

WILLOW
Ohhh, I'm a little shy, but ohhhh, I love to be petted and snuggled. Some people turned me in to the shelter because they said they had too many cats. What? How can you have too many of meee? I'm a pretty lynx point girlie with lots of white fur on me, too - a partially disguised meezer! I'm just a little girl - only about 6 pounds. I get along with other kitties and the dog here makes me poof, but he seems interesting. Foster mom said to tell you that she could hardly get good photos of me because I kept coming too close to her. Check out my video. You need a Willa, don't you?
Notes from Home
04/03/12: Willow has been at her new home for just over two weeks now! I think she is really enjoying the place. We play for 30 minutes every morning before work and for at least 30 minutes every evening afterwards. She is quite the predator! She loves dashing and leaping for feathers and will even paw at your ankles when she's under the couch. And if no one is around to play with, she'll turn any sitting ball, sock, or lipstick case into a toy.

Willow greets me when I come home, jumps on my lap while I'm on the computer, and curls up up with me in bed at night; she is so loving and affectionate, I can already tell we will be best friends. I will upload pictures soon! I wish I could also upload video: she's nothing but a blur when she gets to playing!

9/17/12: Wow! I can't believe it's already been six months! Willow is still my absolute darling. She is completely at home now, and when we leave for small weekend trips, she's very sad to not be home! She comes to greet me every day after I return from work and school and mews to be pet. We have daily and weekly treats, which she greatly looks forward to (I just shake the treat bag, and she paws to have some. And as a weekly treat, I give her canned wet food, and she starts to meow and purr like crazy when she sees me bring it out!). She has even become very comfortable with my three roommates and one in particular, which I'm glad to see. As well, she's finally found some use for her predator skills and protects her mama from small bugs that seem to make their way into my bedroom sometimes! I'm very grateful, lol.

3/18/13:
Willow recently had her one-year check-up and she's doing extremely well! In fact, she has some of the whitest teeth that the doctor has ever seen! To celebrate her "birthday," Willow received a polka dot dress and a pink hoodie! She didn't seem to like either at first (she just went limp after they were on), but after learning how to walk again while wearing clothes, she doesn't seem to mind them! Yaaaay!

The color of her coat has changed quite a bit since she originally came home. Willow's body used to be mostly beige, but now the beige has darkened to a spotted gray. I don't ever remember it started to change! I only realized it when I was looking at a picture from last year, lol. We still hang out every day and sleep together every night. Willow is still my little baby.

3/17/16:
Willow and I are now in Austin, Texas! Life's been crazy for us for the past few years, moving locations as I worked my way through law school and eventually coming out here to work. We haven't always lived together, depending on my living situation, but I've always put her in very good hands that I've trusted. I think we are finally at the most stable situation we've ever been, and Willow loves that I don't have any roommates, human or otherwise, to contend with! She loves to be held, look out the window, and chase feathers. We sleep together every night (she's such a cuddle bug), and she is my best friend in a new state and city where I know so few people. She even took her first plane trip to get out here! She did very well, though she was excited to be back on the ground. I'm so happy that we were able to make this life journey together, and I know we'll have many more wonderful years to look forward to!

3-2-11..This is Oreo's 1 month update.

From a Cat and Human integration perspective, everything has been terrific. She continues each day to get more comfortable with Calo and Hawaii and her new humans. She is gradually having more
interaction with myself and Dale.

On the weight front...that is still requiring some work. She originally lost 1 to 2 tenths of a pound but
immediately stabilized at 9.7 lbs at her last weigh in on Sunday (2/27). She's quite the vacuum cleaner when it comes to food. Dale sometimes refers to her as "Hoover". I'm not sure how much of it is food anxiety or the fact that she has lot's of physical interaction wth Calo and is just consuming the calories. It's something we'll have to keep strategizing on to make sure she gradually gets down to the weight she needs to be at (8lbs or so).

4-5-11 Oreo's Monthly Update
Had a few bumps in the road with Oreo, but she appears to be back on track. The Booda litter box still seems to flummox her, but we've made some adjustments in how the litter is laid down in the box that seem to help. We are using the Sentry Calming Collars and it also really seems to help. Also we have increased her daily playtime. The weight still remains an issue. She gained another pound while I was in Florida in early March! She still plays with Calo and is basically his best buddy. They love wrestling and playing with each other. I caught her the other day grooming him while he was snuggling with Hawaii.

May 14th - Oreo is doing well. As you can see she love's her kitty condo that sits in the kitchen window!

June 10, 2011- Oreo's mischevious side is now coming out....she seems to have figured out how to open our cabinet door where we keep the kitchen trash can. She then picks through the trash can for papertowels or napkins which she removes and then happily shreds. Here is Dale's story: Oreo=c-b (aka Cookie Bits) Pooks= Mr Calo our resident male Siamese cat and Oreo's BFF:

"1. I was upstairs. Heard some happy c-b noises, thought I heard some banging but assumed she was playing with Pooks. Then noticed he was near me. Hmmmm. Go downstairs. C-b is under edge of pool table shredding paper towel that had been used during cooking or mop up. Looked & smelled of cooking oil or grease. She had made a circular nest from shreds, & looked up with " oh hi daddy" look.

2. So: evidence, suspicion, not caught on film tho."

Time for kid proof latches on the cabinets!

Feb 1, 2013- This is Oreo's 2 Year anniversary. She is doing GREAT! We have been dealing with her
weight problem. If you remember she ate everything in sight, including the food we had given our other cats and she ballooned in weight. Got her on a calorie restricted diet and she has slowly but steadly taken off the pounds she packed on so quickly. We are taking her into Dr. Adelman today to see if she can come off the diet food. Fingers are crossed! She has gotten to the point where my oldest cat (Hawaii) tolerates her (she's now accepted as one of the cat tribe), and she is even allowed on our bed now by Hawaii! Progress! She is definitely feeling very confident and secure. She has no hestitation in getting up in the high spaces on our floor to ceiling scratching posts. She gives Calo, our male Siamese, a run for his money in the play department. They wrestle and chase each other at least once a day, and it's so funny to see. Her more recent mischief making involves convincing Calo to open bathroom doors (yes, he can open doors) and let her in to shred toilet tissue. She just loves shredding paper towels, napkins and TP. So we do our best to keep them out of her paws! Thanks again to Kathy and Peggy for hooking us up with such a sweet and personable kitty!

3/16/2016- Oreo's 5 year anniversary. Oreo has integrated so well! Even her new baby sister Macey doesn't phase her!. Just a great, all around cat. Thanks so much Siamese Rescue!

ERASMO
Hello! I am so glad to be in Siamese Rescue, I am getting a new start in life, including learning how to walk and jump again since I now have had my leg amputated and now I can be free of the cumbersome limb. I am outgoing and loving, the whole package if I do say so myself.

Love & Purrs,

Matty
Notes from Home
March 16, 2016: Erasmo is a a wonderful part of our family. He is definitely a quirky cat but he is very smart and loves looking out the window chirping at birds. He is very bonded to our son and runs and crashes into him while he is playing on the floor. He has turned into an absolutely gorgeous cat. He has much longer fur than when he arrived and a beautiful fluffy tail! He purrs and loves to be held like a baby. I call him Kramer because he runs into a room like him and has that same crazed look on his face. We love him dearly and are so glad he is part of our family!!

September 14, 2015: Wow! It has been 6 months since this crazy cat entered our lives. Erasmo is a terrific cat. He is nuttier than a fruitcake but he has been an amazing companion for our autistic son. They are two peas in a pod and love each other. He has become a gorgeous cat with the must thick luxurious coat. He gets into all sorts of mischief and begs to go into the sun room to look at the birds and squirrels. We love him so much and enjoy is silly quirky ways.

April 17, 2015: Erasmo is fully integrated into our family. He is sweeter than we could have imagined. He loves his human brother and sleeps in his room with him. Erasmo and Shrimpycat are still trying to work things about but they are slowly getting there. 99% of the time, they are fine but once in a while, they talk at each other and let each other know what's what. He is extremely playful and loves to bat around his ball. He loves to watch birds out the window . Whenever someone comes to the door, he readily greets them with a meow and the expectation that they will pick him up. Because he had all of his rear leg and part of his pelvis removed, he as an interesting way of running. He almost uses the back leg like a paddle and pushes himself along. He almost reminds me of a beaver. It does not slow him down at all. We love him so much. He is a fabulous family cat: social, talkative, playful, loving, and sweet. He definitely has a frisky side and is pretty silly. He has taken over Sven's FB page: https://www.facebook.com/svenvikingcat?ref=aymt_homepage_panel

I feel that I should write in all caps because ERASMO IS SO SWEET AND AWESOME!!! He is settling in well in the guestroom and is eating, drinking, etc. He loves to snuggle and seems to purr nonstop. If one of us tries to leave the room, he attempts to trip us so that we stay with him. With three legs, he still likes to play with toys. He jumps on the bed with ease and gets around fine. He is not fully coordinated when he tries to move quickly but he is figuring it out. We love him so much already!

Just call me FUN! I am all about toys and playing. I bring lots of toys with me, but you need to provide me with lots of entertainment as well!

Notes from Home
Not much new to add to previous update. We had family visit this week and Courtney warmed up quickly with tail rubs and flop and rolls. She is still leary of large objects, like suitcases, or noisy ones, like vacuum cleaners, but it's understandable. We know little of the day to day environment she came from or how she was treated by her previous owners, so it is necessary to give her the benefit of the doubt. She only gets lots of love and attention from us. She is a good communicator, which is helpful.

Update as of September 8, 2012. Courtney is a wonderful cat. She loves to flop and roll, and be brushed all over. She never bites, or uses her claws on anything, furniture or our skin. She has quite a vocabulary, and makes her needs known. She only gets up at night when we do, so does not disturb us, usually waiting until we wake in the morning. We have taken her on two boat trips to the Eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay, lasting several days. She loves the freedom to explore all over the boat, including the many nooks and crannies, whether at the dock or anchored out. However, we keep a close eye on her at all times. She does have a heart murmur that concerns us. She was seen by the vet a few days ago who found it more pronounced than 6 months ago, together with a rapid pulse. Courtney could have been anxious about her visit. That might explain the vet's findings. However, the vet recommended we take her to a cardiologist for an evaulation. So, we plan to do that in the next few weeks. Courtney is only 2 years old, seemingly too young for this kind of problem.

Update of March 7, 2014. Courtney continues to steal our hearts. She truly is an amazing and wonderful cat! So talkative and wants to communicate about everything. Also very inquisitive and has to be in the middle of the action. She has been very healthy. Several months ago she seemed to be having a hard time swallowing. We took her into a pet emergency hospital 2 miles from us. The vet found a short piece of string or thread wrapped around one of her front teeth and removed it. Problem solved, much to our relief.

Update of March 11, 2015. Courtney has taken over the household. She lets us know when it is time to get up, take a nap, time to watch TV, or go to bed. She also picks her chair to sit on during meals, or what cushion to lay on while watching TV. Her favorite programs are those involving cats, of course. She doesn't like loud noises, such as sneezing, coughing, or conversation. She will meow multiple times, and place a paw on you as a reminder to cool it. She is exceedingly friendly to strangers, rubbing and doing flop and rolls to get attention. She never bites or scratch the furniture, or us. Although she is not a lap cat, and probably will never be one, she spends a lot of time snuggling or being near us. She tolerates head butts and forehead kisses, which she tried to avoid when we first adopted her. We have floor to ceiling sliding glass doors on all 3 floors, so Courtney enjoys watching the wildlife, including deer and a fox or two. Popcorn helps attract squirrels and birds a few feet away from Courtney. We have taken Courtney on a dozen or so overnight cruises to the Eastern Shore on our trawler. She is confined inside, until we drop anchor, then explores the upper and lower decks, and all the nooks and crannies. She enjoys watching the sea gulls dive for bread crumbs. She gets brushed almost every day, is up to date on her shots and annual visits to her Vet. She is very active, running up and down the stairs. We keep her litter box clean, and there have been no litter box issues. Enough for now. Suffice it to say, we are very fortunate to have her as a member of our family - a house is not a home without a cat!

Update as of March 13, 2016. Not much to add to the above. Courtney is in good health, and continues to steal our hearts. She is the perfect house cat (still not a lap cat). The time spent checking the website every 5 minutes all day until Siri posted her in March, 2012, was well worth it. We were first on the list! Courtney is truly a gem. She sees her Vet religiously each year in March, though she is not a fan of her carry cage. We sold our trawler last Fall, so she won't get to enjoy those cruises in the future, but did have that unique experience for several years. No behavioral or other issues to report.

Peek-a-boo! I see you!

I'm a lovey-dovey, pet me please, oh I have to jump up and get more petting on my head kind of girl. I am getting over a cold, but had a visit with a resident cat. I love other kitties and we spent the day watching birds before mom caught us...

I've had a mild cold but am getting over it quickly. I'm a bit camera shy, but mom said to get ready for a photo shoot soon or I won't get any more visitors... much less a home!

My name also means dear in Italian. So, be a dear and click on Ask About Me!

More info soon!

Notes from Home
My parents think I am the cutest cat in the world. I already knew that... :)

March 13, 2016--It's hard to believe it's been nine years since I arrived at my furever home! I'm still giving my parents a run for their money. One of these days they will accept that I am smarter than them!
