Dear Santa....

foster Mary thought that perhaps if I write to you my wish to have a home of my own might come true.
So here is my letter for the North Pole.
All I want for Christmas is a forever home of my own. Well that and food, toys, love, adoration, and a patient adopter.

Thank you Santa and Dear Potential Adopter

This cat will not tolerate being with a female cat. This is usually a female cat.Not with Female Cats
Well that took long enough to get my portfolio completed! I'm settling in very well, a quiet gal, looking for a deep relationship with someones!
Notes from Home
Tomorrow (5/16/15) will be Sassy’s four-week anniversary as a member of our family and she is settling in nicely, albeit with some valleys to go with the hills.

On 5/12/15, Sass had her wellness visit with her new vet and she is in great shape. She was a perfect patient during the visit, received her rabies shot, and will return in a year for her annual check-up.

In 25 years of having Siamese cats in our lives, Sassy is the only cat to come to us as an adult (she turned five on May 1) and we were not sure how this would affect her initial adjustment. We’ve found that the only discernable difference is in accepting (or not) a periodic claw trim. The cats who started life with us as kittens, quickly grew accustomed to a skillful (if I do say so, myself) claw clip but so far, I’ve had to bide my time (hopefully to when she’s dozing), then clip a single claw (not always possible), then wait until the next opportunity.

In other areas, Sass has come along very well, eating (she’s switched herself to dry-only Wilderness duck), drinking appropriate amounts of water, using her two litter boxes and her hundred-and-two scratching posts. She sleeps in our bed almost every night, for at least part of the night, as she wishes. Strangely, she is not partial to any of a variety of cat beds (fleece, Millie, ‘other’), preferring to doze either on our bed or on a carpeted floor. We’re fairly certain that eventually, when she is no longer at all nervous about anything in her surroundings, she’ll enjoy sleeping on our living room sofa and may even decide to give one or another of the beds a second try. She has also stayed away from the tall, multi-cradle cat tree but here, again, we’re fairly confident that one day, when her environment is no long scary in any way, we will find her ensconced there. Our other cats loved the tree so much that they tried to climb up while we were removing the wrapping! Sassy has done a bit of lap-sitting but was too nervous to pursue it. From Day One, she’s enjoyed lots and lots of looking out of windows and in the last few days, has shown a continuing interest in a variety of toys, mainly catnip mice and other toy hapless creatures, which she disembowels, dominates, and carries from room to room in her mouth. Until yesterday, no toy interested her in the slightest. Progress!

She is becoming more and more relaxed with me, frequently coming to me when I offer my hand to sniff or even call her name; head-butting and winding herself around my legs. She welcomes attention from me, purring as I hold her head and even stretches out for the occasional tummy rub. She is far less social with David (who always had a fine relationship with our other cats) and more often than not, runs for cover when he comes near. We doubt that Sassy was ever ‘abused,’ but we suspect that she had a frightening encounter with a male at some time in her past. This, too, will pass – eventually. Meanwhile, David continues to talk to her, pat her when permitted, and generally act as though he knows all’s well between them.

Pictures to follow (when I learn how to upload them).

A day over six weeks with us and Sassy’s making wonderful progress in settling in – baby steps but lots of them.

Our bedroom, which started out being home base, is now just one base of several for her and she’s more and more at ease as she trots into various rooms, finds a window to look out of, a food bowl to snack from with water as a chaser, a scratching board to work with, or -- as of just three days ago -- a tall cat tree with three commodious cradles at different levels. In the past few weeks, we saw her noticing it (and perhaps recognizing it for what it is) but not yet nearly brave enough to do more than sharpen her claws on the sisal/carpet portions of its ‘trunk,’ at floor level. We never pressured her to go further and a few nights ago, there she was, in the lowest cradle, sniffing it hesitantly, then standing on it, and finally, gingerly settling down and staying there for an hour or more, changing positions on and off but obviously comfortable. It’s now a regular part of her day and we’re waiting for her to discover the higher cradles which all our previous (now ‘late’) cats loved.

Sass is increasingly social with me and, especially if I show her her brush, will come trotting over for brushing, head-holding, and tummy-rubbing (and of course, lots of talk from me). The brush isn’t a hard-and-fast requirement and more and more often, when she sees me coming near, she’ll stretch herself into a hugely long kitty, expose her tum and meow or purr for “The Usual,” which I’m always happy to supply. I’m still working on getting those claws trimmed but even this is somewhat easier, although still a ‘one-claw-and-done’ event. By the time I get them all done, it’ll be time to start over again but I can see that she finds the process to be annoying but not terrifying.

And she is coming to see that David is really not very scary at all. She’ll let him walk past her without scampering away, and has taken to coming to him, head- or body-bumping him, then retreating to sit just a few inches off. Very brave; more successful baby steps.

Still not confident about uploading pix so must resort to 'text, only.' As a sidebar to the general subject of pictures, Sass’ one problem in all photos is that because her eyes are somewhat hooded, she comes off looking quite dour and unfriendly. Not at all the case. If only we could tell her to say, ‘Cheese.’

Happy June, everyone!
Sassy's ten-week anniversary with us,this past Saturday, June 27, '15, and she's making steady progress in adjustment. Baby steps but lots and lots of them. She now uses the cat tree regularly (and it took her several weeks to overcome her fear of it). Recently, she's been lumbering up on my lap and settling down there for an hour or more, each evening and also enjoying lounging on the sofa, between David and me. Panics if we pick her up -- so we don't -- but comes over when offered a hand to sniff (to remind her who we are). She loves looking out any open window (secure screens in place on all) and is wild about being brushed! Amazingly, as she lolled on the couch, one evening, last week, I calmly picked up a rear foot and, talking to her the while, clipped all the claws!

She is less 'sassy' than any cat we have ever known and I'm still tempted to change her name to Cookie but she's had two names (that we know of), already ('Ms. Sassy' at the shelter and Siamese Rescue, then, 'Sassy,' with us) and 'Sassy' is now on all her documentation (Siamese Rescue's; her vet's office; Reunite, the microchip data base). The fact that she isn't sassy shouldn't bother me any more than the fact that Vandy, our long-ago, late domestic longhair, wasn't a Vandal.

She has had a recurrence of the chin acne that afflicted her when she came to Siamese Rescue but we contacted our vet as soon as we noticed it and he has prescribed for it.

We are delighted with this pussy cat who has had a rough time of it, watching her gain confidence in her environment and trust in her humans.

Thanks to the huge Siamese Rescue team who brought her to us, in Brookline, Mass. Later in the summer, she'll spend a week with us on Cape Cod.

Finally, some pix to attach, with hopes that I've got the upload process right

More news when there is some.
At six months with us, five year old Sassy’s adjustment continues. Her progress was initially hindered by the necessity of medicating her for the reoccurrence of the feline acne which plagued her when she first came to Siamese Rescue from a public shelter. She was clear at the time we adopted her. As we knew it might, within a month, the problem reappeared and for several months, our vet at Angell Animal Medical Center (the medical arm of MSPCA), treated her, first with Duoxo Spot On, later with Tresaderm. He also had us eliminate as much plastic as possible from her life (changing her water and food bowls to china), and changed her diet to Royal Canin Rabbit and Peas, both moist and dry (she loves both versions). The acne improved but was still present and at our vet’s suggestion, we made an appointment for a consultation with the feline dermatologist at Angell.

Ultimately, the strain of being given meds twice a day, every day was affecting Sass’ adjustment so adversely that we asked whether it would be medically safe to give her prednisone, in the very short term, to allow us to halt the daily medications which were having such a bad effect on her adjustment to life with us -- just until her dermatology appointment, scheduled for six weeks later. (We know how dangerous prednisone is, in the long term.) Our vet prescribed a two-week course of oral prednisone, the last dose of which was given one month before Sass’ dermatology appointment.

At this writing, one month after the last oral prednisone dose, Sass has been clear for quite a while, so clear, in fact, that we re-scheduled her appointment with the dermatologist to December, as she is presently asymptomatic. We know it might return and are prepared to deal with whatever comes.

We have read that stress can be a factor in feline acne. In the weeks since we ceased medicating Sass – with a stressful chase twice a day -- her adjustment has improved to the point where we can almost say that she has begun to blossom, starting to become the cat she was meant to be.

As to her social/emotional adjustment: First and foremost, she has never struck a blow in anger. Initially, when she first came to us, she almost phobic of being picked up – and to this day, I almost never do so, however, on the rare occasions when I do lift her up, she has now come to the point where she will object with her almost inaudible non-Siamese voice but for a few seconds, will refrain from struggling, looking around at the view from the human. After those few seconds have passed, she will not bite or scratch (except accidentally, as she pushes off from my arms) but she will struggle strenuously to get down. As with all other ‘problems,’ we never press her. We see improvement here and it’s now quite obvious that although she continues to dislike being picked up and/or carried, she is no longer terrified. Our attempts at claw-trimming are so stressful for her that we now have the trimming done at a tech appointment at Angell, approximately once a month. Sass behaves perfectly at these sessions. All of our previous cats came to us as kittens and so were totally accustomed to manicures with me.

At the other end of the sociability spectrum, she sometimes sleeps in our bed with us and some evenings, as the two of us sit on the living room sofa, she quite often appears, jumps up and carefully settles down on my lap. At times, she will stretch herself out to her full length, asking for a tummy rub, and she hugely enjoys gentle under-chin and jaw line massages. She gives signs that she wants to socialize and generally feels good about her life with us. Head butts are now routine and we’ll simply follow her lead as we go along.

Sass greatly enjoys looking out of any of the many windows and on occasion seats herself next to a closed Venetian blind. We take the hint and open it for her. She has generally paid little or no attention to any toys, although this has improved somewhat and she has one favorite BFF white mouse which she sometimes carries around with her.

Sadly, after ‘discovering’ the wonderful cat tree in our living room, close to a window, and spending several days enjoying it in June, she hasn’t used the tree in easily four months, a pity, as it provided so much pleasure to our previous cats. As with all other things, we do not press her. It may happen, yet.

We’ve seen slow but definite improvement on all fronts and will continue to let Sass progress at her own pace. She’s our girl and has had a rough time of it. We wish we knew what her pre-shelter life was like but that won’t happen. Somewhere along the way, someone destroyed most of her self-confidence and courage. We want to help her get them back.

Thanks to everyone at SCRC for giving us this wonderful lady with the incredibly soft shiny brown fur.

February 20, 2016:
We celebrated Sass’ ten-month adoption anniversary two days ago, on February 18 and it’s been a memorable ten months, filled with a million baby steps toward becoming the happy, healthy, confident and sociable cat she was meant to be. Sass was a bundle of miscellaneous fears when she came to us and throughout, we’ve proceeded on a ‘Go-Slow’ basis which is paying off beautifully. Within the last two months, especially, she has made wonderful interpersonal progress with both David and me and now spends large portions of most evenings on the living room sofa with us, on my lap, or David’s lap, or in the fleece bed (on the sofa) which she rejected for virtually nine of the ten months that she’s been with us. When she first came to us, she was flat-out terrified of being picked up – so for the most part, we didn’t, while very slowly picking her up on rare occasions for very brief periods (measured in seconds). One day, I picked her up and was astounded to find that, rather than struggle to get away, she purred and rubbed her head against my arms as I held her. The door bell with send her scampering for cover but when our (adult) elder son, Rog, stops by, rather than ring, he calls us when he’s at our door, we open the door for him, with no scary bell (guess telephones don’t count), Sass doesn’t feel compelled to flee, and he greets her as he enters. So far, she has become brave enough to allow him to approach her and give her his hand to sniff. Her acne never completely goes away – and we suspect that it will always be with her to some extent – but she does well on and enjoys her diet of Hill’s z/d and is being well cared for by the feline dermatologist at Angell Animal Medical Center (fka Angell Memorial), the medical arm of MSPCA, in Boston, just ten minutes or so from our home in Brookline. Her General Medicine vet is also in practice there.

Finally, I must report the most terrifying 24 hours we have ever experienced: In our condo’s large parking lot, just about to load Sass’ SCRC carrier (with her in it) into the back of our Honda, to drive to her appointment with her vet, we set the carrier on the ground, preparatory to clearing one last bit of space on the back seat. In a millisecond, the hinge side of the carrier’s grill door came open and the last thing we saw was Sass, in warp drive, running this way and that in the lot in 20º temperature with snow and ice on the ground! In 26 years of cat ownership, we have never, ever lost a cat, as all our cats are indoor-only (as Sass is). An army of friends/neighbors helped in the search; our son, Rog, drove in from his home in the suburbs and he and our dear friend and neighbor-across-the-hall, Linda, must have covered half of Brookline (slight exaggeration) with flyers; we contacted all the appropriate agencies and institutions, and I searched the single-car garages which ring the parking lot, over and over again, in the wee hours and before I left for work, early the next morning. No snow that night but temps in the single digits; the coldest night of the year. Sass has no collar but is microchipped.

WE GOT HER BACK! Linda, who has never owned a cat, suggested (naively, we were sure) that we leave the door to our building’s outer vestibule open and place food, water, and a bed in the vestibule. I told Linda that Sass was an indoor-only cat and surely had no cognitive map which would help her get home from the parking lot, two blocks from our building, having seen the outdoors only through the bars of her carrier. Nevertheless, almost to humor Linda, we did as she suggested. The next morning: nothing The following afternoon, as David and I were sitting in the waiting room of the Honda dealership, waiting for an oil change, my cell phone rang and there was a picture of a cool, calm, and collected Sassy, lounging in the fleece bed in the vestibule of our building. Linda had found her there, a few minutes earlier and brought the bed – with Sass in it – into the secure inner vestibule – and Sass had not shied away from her whom she knew only slightly. Linda’s husband, Richard, came to pick us up from Honda (our own car was still being serviced) and ten minutes later Sass walked into her home and settled down as though she’d never been away. We’ll never know, of course, but we wonder whether she might have been an indoor-outdoor cat in her first five years, before she came to us, and so might have developed some outdoor cognitive mapping skills. We don’t ascribe the happy ending to anything ‘woo-woo’ and just consider ourselves (and Sass) to have been darned lucky. We had offered a $100 reward for Sass’ safe return and, of course Linda would not accept it so sometime soon, David and I will take the four of us out to dinner at Boston’s Top of the Hub, instead.

We have three new pix assuming I can upload them. Apologies if they don't accompany this report; I'll re-learn and include with my next one...

Best to all of you,
Jane and David and Sass

Pull out a drawer and I'll have a seat. I can make myself comfortable anyplace. Im sweet, lovable, pretty, and quite the little athlete. Right now my favorite toys are Heard that Bird and a ratty ol mousy toy (no pun intended) with a noisemaker thing inside. I get along fine with the resident cats but also would do well as your one and only girl. I am a good eater, not fussy (but if youd like to grill me up some chicken, that would be fine), and I have excellent litter box habits. I like to sleep on the foster beans feet at night and follow her around during the day, purring loudly. Ask the foster bean for more information, and she'll no doubt gush about how wonderful I am.

Notes from Home
Evelyn, now known as "Cookies", is our little fairy. She has been a delight since day one. She is beautiful, affectionate, talkative, and funny. (She squeak and trills like a "moo-can" when you pick her up.) She is so friendly she follows workmen all over the house, and she has never met a lap she didn't like. She's about as close to perfect as a cat can be. We love her so much we can't imagine life without her!

2/20/16- Cookies is well and going strong. She did develop asthma along the way, but she lets me administer her meds with the "Aerokat" inhaler with minimal fuss every day. She is a heat/lap-seeking cuddle monster, and still my little ambassador who greets everyone who comes by. She is a special little girl who continues to bring happiness and love to my house.

Notes from Home
Ridley has settled in beautifully. He has filled out into a big gorgeous hunk of a cat. He has a charming, quirky personality and not a single bad habit. He loves to play and loves his treats and his heated bed, and has regular rituals he follows. He hops up next to the big bowl containing the tins of wet food every morning to let me know it's breakfast time, and no matter what he is doing, he trots upstairs with me when I am going up to bed, which is really endearing. He doesn't have an aggressive bone in his body, so he and Cookies are getting along fine; he continues to try to win her over, and I think he will eventually succeed. He was a little distant and restless for a while when he was figuring out that he wasn't going to be able to go outside any more, but ever since he started getting regular play and treats he has been getting more and more affectionate. Rowan and I love him very much, and he has been a wonderful addition to our home. Thank you all! And thanks to Siri and Darrell for recommending him to me. (And giving him such a cool name!)

9/15/12- We are still just thrilled with Ridley. He is healthy, has zero bad habits, is friendly to all, and gets along beautifully with my other cats. I am so happy with the whole SCR match-making process; he is a perfect fit for my household. All is well, and everyone is happy!

2/20/16- I'm sad to say that Ridley passed away on Wednesday, February 17th, after a brief, valiant battle with liver cancer. He was ever the elegant, dignified cat who loved everyone. He was pretty much the perfect cat. I feel so blessed that he was able to spend his last years with me. He will be missed til the end of my days.

Hello again! It's me, Owen, although I'm starting to think my name is "Lovebug" since Foster Mom calls me that all the time. I have made so much progress since I wrote to you last. I have completely settled into my new digs (it only took me about a week) and I am no longer the scared boy I was. In fact, I'm the opposite of scared now! I walk around with my gorgeous, fluffy tail held high, exploring, lounging , snoozing, playing with the other cats and dog that live here, begging for chow, and asking to be petted and cuddled.

That's right! I said "cuddled." I'm a boy but I'm not afraid to say I'm in touch with my "feminine" side. I love to cuddle with you and will purr so loud when you pet me. In fact, I'm hoping that my new forever family will let me sleep with them at night. You see, Foster Mom lets me cuddle up with her at night in my own special bed right by her pillow.

Foster Mom says I'm smart too! I learned to use the kitty door to go out onto the screened-in back porch all by myself. Foster Mom didn't even need to show me how! I just watched what my foster brothers and sisters did and it was easy.

Oh, and Foster Mom says to tell you that I use my paws like little hands and can get into just about anything. I don't know why she told me I had to tell you that. I'm just curious, that's all! And in fact, we Javanese (long-haired Siamese) have a reputation for being very dexterous.

I'm having lots of fun here but I'm longing for my own forever home. I'm an easy-going guy and would slot in just about anywhere, even with gentle kids! I would really like to have a feline companion or two, though, as I really like cats and, shhhhh, don't tell anyone, but I really like dogs too! As long as they are gentle with me, that is.

So don't delay! Click on "ask about me" today and Foster Mom and I will tell you all about my story of how I came to be in rescue. I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Much Love, Owen.

Notes from Home
Hi all! Owen is celebrating his 11th Birthday today! When we adopted him in 2006, he came to our home to be a buddy for our sweet girl, Cleo. They were not so sure about each other at first, but they became inseparable. In 2012, we started fostering a friend's cat, Russet. They became friends too. Owen's mom, Mary (the eldest daughter) takes great care of him.
Sadly, his girl Cleo passed on last year at 17, as did his buddy Russet - they passed on the same day. Owen has a new adopted girl, Millie - but it's just not the same for him. He misses them dearly. He has become very clingy to mom and nana. He is very well loved. We are so blessed to have this wonderful guy in our lives ❤️

Notes from Home
Little girl is doing great! I'll be putting an extra tall fixed mounted swing gate on her door when it arrives this week, and then the regular door will remain open so that she and the dogs can see each other regularly but be safe. They have all had regular peaks at each other as I have two free standing baby gates on either side of the door and have started leaving the door open when I'm in her room with her. Only the youngest, Birdie, is overly excited about her at this point and I expect her to calm down the more she is able to see her. She has stopped running to Misty's door when Misty is singing for us. So the interest is softening. I'm looking forward to Misty having full run of the house, but we are going extra extra slow to make sure everything goes smoothly. It's so wonderful to have a cat again! She is cuddly and loving, and chatty, and just the best kitty I could have ever imagined. Thank you!

Notes from Home
It has been 2 weeks with this guy and we are finally adjusted. Unlike Siri, adopted female blue point, he was terrified with dinner plate eyes for about a week. I slowly integrated him into the household, giving him free run of the house with Siri, absent. This gave him a chance to see that it was safe. Then I added Siri, my fearless female grooming queen. She just wanted him to pay attention to her.......typical female! Finally, this impatient meowmy lives in a content , maybe happy environment, which looks like a day care center. There must be almost 2 dozen ping pong balls under something and toys everywhere.
His new name is Sami. He is long legged, very slim, eats like a dog and with one leap can be on top of anything. Siri
Is small, about half his size, but has attitude and loves him dearly. She is happy to have a playmate and her sandpaper tongue is applied to Sami and not me......than God. They each have a chair in front of the glass sliders which overlook the marina. They watch the boats and birds. A delightful life for kitties!

Sami has been with us for a month! He is Siri's opposite. A nonstop cat! I bought them a cat tree which arrived today and he was on it before I had it completely assembled. He is nosy, loves high places and wants to eat ALWAYS.
SIRI is my sweet one.......Sami is my wild child! They play well together and though she is much smaller, she is tough.
They are both beautiful and much loved.

Sami, Sami, Sami.......what a piece of work! He has destroyed one living room chair. My furniture is covered in sheets. I did contact you folks and you recommended artificial nails. He lets me put them on and they don't seem to bother him. I am forever yelling at him because he is such a challenge and because he is a challenge I love him to pieces. He no longer eats like a dog. He knows he will always have food so he is picky and never eats what I put down immediately......he picks at it over time. Loves treats...Temptations! That is his lunch He is still slim.....one of those who does not gain weight. Siri and I hate him for that!
I told him in the beginning to just give in to me because I was going to win. He has gone from a totally frightened, distrusting cat to one who finally jumps up on the foot of my recliner and sleeps next to my legs. He won't get in my lap yet, but I grab him and hold him in my lap till he wants to go.....short term, but improving. He is my WILD CHILD!
He reminds me of my all time favorite, Pappilion, who I called Pappy. In fact, I have called Sami 'Pappy' more than once.
He has that same elegance, grace, bright behavior. He already has a special place in my heart.

He is a wonderful guy, so bright and mischievous. He reminds me of my favorite, Papillion (Papoy) who was an amazing creature. In fact sometimes I call Sami...Pappy. He finally trusts me and loves laying next to me on the recliner. He still won't sit in my lap but we are working on that! Be careful what you wish for! He follows me everywhere and if I return home, putting the key in the door lock brings him to greet me. He is gorgeous and a delight, so very nosy.
I started feeding both of them BlueBuffalo, wet and dry. Siri eats the dry. They hated the wet food and I ended up tossing
it. But they both love Friskies. I have switched.....they eat it like vacuum cleaners! Giving them the best wasn't working.
Siri and Sami are total opposites in personality. They get along well, play well, groom each other. They are happy and so am I to have them as part of my family.
Thanks to all of you for making this happen.

Wow! What a whirlwind few days I've had! I was just toasting my toes in the shelter, then off to the vet for my little surgery, THEN off to the Center for two days and NOW I'm in ANOTHER foster home.

Doesn't bother me a bit. I'm raring to go and meet and greet and play and run and, play, and, and....
I'm quite the confident little girl and quite a looker as well. Meowmy says I have to stay in this playpen for a little bit and then I can meet the other kittens, resident cats and the doggies.

Stay tuned for my progress as Meowmy gets to know me and sees what I like and what I don't like. I'm sure to have an opinion about everything. After all I AM a snowshoe and a girl!

Notes from Home
My name is now "Jamaica". I went to see my vet today and he said I was in purrfect health,
weighing in at 4 .7 pounds. I met Princess & Snowshoe and they were both very nice to me.
I think we're all gonna get along just fine. My new parents are just awesome and they love me so much.
Thats all for now I have to go play.

Wow how time flies, it's been a month already since I found my new home. All I can say is this place is great! I have a neat playmate in snowshoe, we chase each other all around the house and then play fight till we're tired. I'm eating real well and don't have any other issues at this time.

It's our 6 month anniversary with Jamaica and all is just great with her, she has settled in and gets along great with the other cats. She eats very well and has no health issues at this time. She is truly a wonderful love.

Foster Notes

This cat is not suitable for children under the age of 5 (ie 5 and over is OK). This is typically a cat that is shy and a child might scare it, or one that has a potential to bite or play too hardNot with kids under 5
This cat will not tolerate being with a female cat. This is usually a female cat.Not with Female Cats
Sweet as pie and friendly too! I just need a few days of patience and a calm environment and in turn I will reward you with years of love! I'm a headbutting fool now. I roll around and show my belly and run jump in foster mom or dad's lap. Great habits--grooming, litterbox, and scratching post....I get an A+.

Wait--I am now integrating ---with two large dogs and a herd of cats (okay I'm dramatizing on the herd part) so really---11 days and I've made that kind of progress. Yay for ME!!

Everything to adore here!

Love, Kiki

Notes from Home
Kiki is cautious but coming out from under the bed to sleep on the bed at night and will come to us for pets...still spooked easily, but oh so sweet!

2 months home : still keeping to the bedroom most of the time but comes out in family room to eat and some exploration, friendly to let us pet her most of the time...don't know if she will ever come out to family room to be a part of the family...

3 months with us today, she is doing well...took down the gate to bedroom so she and dog are totally mingled, yet a tad aprehensive yet....very good idea to take it slow.....

2 years, she is doing well, but prefers my husband....he likes her, but I'm the one that wanted her. She still has some skitterish moments.
