CHESTER BENNINGTON CAM
Couldn't decide if my name was Big Red or Cheddar, but since I've done nothing but smile with pleasure since I got here, we opted for a cheesey name. Check out my video if you want to see the meaning of immediately well adjusted, relaxed and loving, because that's me! Probably fine anywhere and everywhere, but my favorite place would be your place!

Notes from Home
Hey Peeps! Just wanted to let you know how I'm doing after 3 glorious weeks at my new home. JUST FINE! Even better than FINE!

I got to come home with a new Meezer friend, Lila (formerly Shou). She and I now have free run of most of the house and we LOVE IT! There are toys upstairs and downstairs - and we can even move them around as we want. I did bring a toy onto the bed this morning about 3 am and Meomy wasn't too happy about me pouncing on her feet and legs - but she didn't yell at me! She just let me play and then scritched my head. You have remember that I didn't much like toys when I was at the Siamese Rescue Center. Now I'm just a big PLAYBOY!

We have lots of windows to look out - well, I mostly like to snooze in the sun. These beans of ours have provided us nice cushy, soft spots in front of windows. Of course at night, I prefer sleep on the bed - right next to one of my beans. And they roll over or move a hand, I'm right there to let them know I could use a scritch or 5.

We met the nice new vet last week. She declared me HANDSOME and PERFECT! How's bout that? And that's just the way I feel with my new family!

Huge Thanks to Siri and Nancy for finding me a perfect forever family.

Chester (formerly Cheddar) =^..^=



Hey It's Chester Bennington Cam! I cannot believe I've been in my forever home for a little over a year. But it seems like forever! Lila and I sure got lucky when we came here. We have comfy beds, chairs, and sofas for snoozing. There are even pillows on some - and I've become the "Prince and the Pea", cuz I love to be on a quilt, on a pillow, on a bed or sofa! Hey - why NOT! The food is great and treats appear regularly. Toys are all around, and sometimes I have a hard time deciding - paper ball (fav when Meom and Paw aren't home or are working), plush toy or laser toy!

I'm just a happy, healthy, friendly guy! I've gained a little weight, had no tummy or eye problems (thanks to my lysine treats and grain-free food), and come out of my shell. When guests come to visit, I check them out for about 5 mins and then turn on my charm! They ALWAYS love me and tell me how handsome and sweet I am. The kids (grands) and pugs (danged dogs) were here at Christmas, but we survived quite nicely. The kids were very nice and petted and played with us. The pugs…. well, let’s just say, that when they got between me and stairs – I sent one of them SPINNING! Just ran right into/over him! They live with Balinese, but this is MY house!

I'm learning that when Meom and Paw clip my nails, they aren't actually trying to cut off my toes! That has been a big step in trust for me. I have not had to go see the nice vet since I had my 1st visit about year ago, but will be going again soon. Don't like the car, but guess it's for my own good.

My major responsibilities here are: keep track of where all my peeps are in the house. I follow Meom around and position myself outside her sewing room and office so I can protect her. I also supervise all bathroom activities! This is VERY important, even if it means getting up during the night to make sure Meom is OK. Lila and I have split up the responsibilities - she keeps track of things outside and I take care of inside security! We both monitor kitchen activities in case there is some turkey that falls into a bowl for us.

Hey Siri and Nancy – THANKS AGAIN for sending us to our forever home! We love you and just wish that all the kitties in your care could find a great forever home too!

Chester Bennington Cam =^..^=

Hi Siri and Nancy, It's Chester Bennington Cam.

Today is CHESTER and LILA DAY! Can't believe it's been 3 years since we arrived here at our forever home. Seems like it has been forever. I've totally forgotten about my "before" life.

My Mewomy and Paw had a visitor this last week. I made sure she felt welcomed by sleeping on the bed with her (on a precious kitty quilt) and following her around. But she left today, so guess I'll have to share the bed with Lila tonight.

But this afternoon was warm and sunny and Lila and I got to sunbathe in the window in the breakfast room. Fortunately, we have a little bench there - and can enjoy sniffing the breezes.

Meowmy is a quilter and I LOVE to snooze on quilts. She even made me 2 that sit right next to her desk, so she can just reach down and scratch my chin while she works. It doesn't get better than this!!

Please tell all those Meezers that are waiting that their forever home is out there - to NOT GIVE UP HOPE! It will happen and it's WONDERFUL!!

Chester =^^=

WILMA
Neat..........Sweet...............Petite............ With just a hint of tortatude thrown in!

I'm 10 months old and looking for a forever home. Happy little kids that make lots of noise scare me, so maybe a home with slightly older children? I did have a friend that woffed, but Meowmy said she wants to be sure I like her dog, too, before saying I won't hurt your doggie if you have one. I'll let you know how that goes when the time comes for me to meet Duchess!

Well, she met Duchess this morning and did great! (3/3). You can see her reaction on her video dated 3/3.

So for now, if you'd like a nice little tortie like me, and enjoy a little "sass" thrown in once in a while, ask about me and maybe that can happen.

Purrs and a little hiss too,
Wilma
Notes from Home
Wilma and I just passed our 2 year anniversary together! Yay! And it hasn't been without challenges, that's for sure. Right now, we're still trying to resolve the aggression/bitting that is ongoing. At her annual physical last month, we decided to try her on Gabapentin to see if it might help her. We believe her to have hyperesthesia…so all in all, we are trucking along. I'm not sure the medication is working, but it's not hurting. maybe a 25% improvement? She can be quite loving….she gets in my lap, wants love, etc. but I have to be EXTREMELY careful to not give her too much because then she'll turn on me. Wilma is very social - she loves hanging out with my house guests, although some of them are petrified of her. This works beautifully for those who can "wear out their welcome;)
Wilma has lost a pound + since her last annual physical which is great, because she was getting a little chunky. She still continues to have a VORACIOUS appetite! All in all, we are doing okay…………...

Well, it's been THREE YEARS since I've adopted Wilma. It has been a ride for sure!!!!!!!!!! I just took her to the vet last week for her checkup. Wilma continues to be aggressive and bites me regularly.......So we are going to take her off the Gabapentin and put her on Prozac to see if this will help her anxiety/aggressive behavior.. She's put on weight since her last annual checkup so I'm going to try to reduce her intake........if only I could do the same.
It's true what they say about torties: "Tortitude for sure!!!!!!!"

DELILAH
My new foster Meom is just getting to know me. This kitty motel seems pretty nice though. There are other kitties here who seem to really like it. The food is good. I waited to eat until the night came so nobody could see me. I'm just a little scared right now. It's nice and warm and cozy in my playpen.
I'm having a little trouble with my one eye. The veterinarian says it's an old injury and will be with me the rest of my life.
But I love my people attention, pets and belly rubs! Can I sleep in bed with you?
I'm not sure I like these other kitties though. I might just have to have all the attention for myself.
Mew, mew!!

10 Days:

After a week of sniffing each other out through the door - Samson and Delilah met and it couldn't have gone better!! They started playing almost immediately. Sam is the best big brother. He has always lived with a kitty brother/sister - and I think hes a bit lonely since we lost Molly.

She adores Sam - monkey see - monkey do. If he's doing it - she wants to do it to.

I couldn't have gotten a better sister for Sam. Delilah is happy, chirpy, and loves to give me Eskimo kisses - just too cute.

Her "bed" of choice - despite lots of fluffy alternatives - is the bathroom sink. She doesn't even care if it's wet - silly monkey.

Here is a picture of the two of them. Thanks again to all the people who helped take care of her and get her to her forever home :)

Marie, Samson, and Delilah

One Month:

My how time flies!! Everyone here is going GREAT! Samson and Delilah have bonded beautifully. She ADORES him so much. She is so full of energy - fortunately my apartment has plenty of room to run - which she does - a LOT :)
Sam can play rough - but she gives it back in spades and then comes back for more. He is also a good teacher - her kitty manners are not all there as she was a feral. Sam gently puts her in her place and she is learning.
The vet thought she was doing really well. She thinks the eye might be a birth defect versus and injury. Good news is she can see something - her pupil reacted to light and the vet could see in. They applauded the use of L-Lycine (thanks Carol).
She eats and uses the boxes well. She is gaining weight and getting longer/thinner.
Overall she is happy, healthy and getting used to her forever home.
Enjoy the new pics!

We lost Delilah's brother Sam today - enlarged heart - fluid in lungs and abdomen. The at home euthanasia vet was very nice - he went so peacefully... My heart is broken it seems beyond all hope....
Please keep an eye out on a sweet laid back male....

Marie

11/2/2015
Delilah so misses Sam - she now turns to me as her "big cat companion" - which means playing in the middle of the night - she brings toys into the bed for me to throw at 2am!
I know she is lonely alone during the day while I'm at work by the amazing greeting I get each day (like she hasn't seen me in weeks!).
We are both anxiously awaiting the adoption of Marsh!! Crossing fingers and saying a prayer to the transport gods.
Marie

2/1/2016
Delilah is back to her frisky, loveable self.
She has decided an new fun game would be to jump on my shoulders - from the floor! She does not always "stick" the landing :)
She had her annual vet appointment and came thru in flying colors - she is getting so long and beautiful.
The vet and I discussed her experience with Marsh. She suggested a kitten. Younger, smaller and male. So I'm on the hunt for a new baby.

Delilah and I just celebrated one year together - my how times fly and situations change. Going from a big brother she adored - to losing him - to gaining one who wasn't too keen to be friends... A lot for a young lady!
She passed her vet visit with flying colors!
We are waiting anxiously for more suitable mates to be listed.

Notes from Home
It's has been just about 2 weeks since we brought Ciara to her forever home. She is doing so well and has quickly stolen our hearts. She is happy and playful and just a love bug. The lovely care she received from the wonderful folks at the rescue center made her transition so much easier. I am sure we will have a lot more great stories yo share about her as time goes on. Just love her so much!

April 21, 2015- we just celebrated our first month with Bella (Ciara). She continues to do wonderful and we are enjoying her so much. She is so playfull and there are tons of toys all over the house. Loves to play hide and seek and every day is a new adventure! We are so happy Bella is a part of our family.

June 28th, 2015 - three months have gone by and Bella (Ciara) is doing wonderful! She has the run of the house and is so playfuland curious. She is friendly to anyone who comes to visit and loves to chirp and talk. Just a joy and we love her so much

March 21,2016- today is Bella's (Ciara's) one year anniversary to her homecoming. She is just as sweet and adorable today as she was back then. She is the queen of the house and is just so loving and playful. She had her vet checkup 2 weeks ago, and she is doing great! We love her so much and are so great full she came into our lives.

TRIPPER
I came in with my brother, Rhody, however we're not showing any signs of being bonded, so right now the consensus is I could go home without him. I'm talkative, interactive and Balinese, the tiniest bit shy at first but doesn't take me long to come out and enjoy your company - check out my videos!

Notes from Home
It's been 3 months now and Tripper rules the house! My husband and I are total wrapped around his little paw. This is the first Siamese/Balinese that I've owed. So, it has taken some getting used to with how vocal Tripper is. He lets us know exactly what's on his mind - never mind the hour. He's my husband's best friend and follows him around constantly. We have now figured out why he's called Tripper. If you don't keep an eye out on where he is, most likely you will trip over him as he's always around your feet. What a gem!
One of our main concerns when we first adopted him was how he was going to handle a vacation we had planned in May. We were going to be gone 12 days. Well, our pet sitter told us that he was one of the best cats she's ever taken care of. We told her that she couldn't have him. :0)
Thanks so much for giving us Tripper!

For the 6 month update, I'm attaching a video of Tripper playing with my husband, as they do every morning, as is their ritual. I'm also attaching another picture of Tripper cuddling with my husband. Do you get the picture that there's real male bonding here. A wonderful and loving cat. Thank you!

It's now been one year since we were lucky enough to get Tripper. What a charmer! He's the perfect companion. We especially love it when he brings his favorite toy, DaBird, to my husband's feet, telling my husband that he has to play with him, RIGHT NOW! Of course, my husband does. He actually drags that pole through the house to wherever my husband is. He never bites, never shows his claws, never hisses. He just loves to sit on your lap and be petted. He passed his one year vet check up with flying colors, although he did gain a little too much weight. We are now watching his diet so that he can lose a few pounds. Thank you, Siamese Cat Rescue Center, again and again. I'm attaching a picture of Tripper looking at me - like what are you doing to me!

Foster Notes

WILLY WONKA
Ever heard the expression "It takes a village..............."? Well in my case it's true!

I was left abandoned and found by a group feeding feral cats. I was in terrible shape and smelled so bad the rescuer didn't want to bring me in her house, until I was cleaned up some. A request was sent out on Face Book to get help to pay my vet bills to see what was wrong with me and the "village" stepped up to help, raising what was needed at the time. They had allergy testing done, and found out all the things I'm allergic too. The good news is that if I live the rest of my life indoors and am fed anything on the long list of accepted foods, I should be fine.

Now the next step in my journey is Siamese Cat Rescue, to continue where Barn Cat Buddies left off. I think I'm one lucky boy to be given a 2nd chance to live the rest of my life in a warm home with someone who'll love me.

Meowmy will explain more after I'm here a while and get checked over by the vet, for the next steps in my recovery.

Purrs and head butts,

Sushi II

It's amazing how things work out. Two days after I got Shiloh's [VA8552] diagnosis of terminal cancer, this little man came into the rescue program, and now on Poppy's [VA9779] second anniversary of coming home, this little man came up to the Hudson Valley to share a forever home with her!

He's eating and drinking well, and has already checked out the privy and found it to his satisfaction!, He's already sniffing at the door, eager to explore the rest of the house and meet his sister. Amazingly, there has been no growling, hissing, or kitty drama from anyone. Just curious scratching and soft meows.

*****************
2/10/16

It's been an exciting couple of days. Mr. Wonka is smarter than the average cat and staged a jailbreak from his sequestering on the first night! Still, it couldn't have gone any better, as I found the two of them curled up, as content as can be, when I walked into my office the next morning.

So much for a gradual introduction.

Since then, they've both taken to accompanying my while I work, and (since I unfortunately came down with a nasty cold since bringing Willy home) taking turns providing me with Meezer therapy.

******************************

3/20/16

It's been over a month and things have been great! Mr. Wonka is quite a charmer and zips around the house with far more energy than I've come to expect in a ten-year-old cat. Geezer, indeed... Ha!

He's also charmed my little seal-point princess, Poppy, and they occasionally talk with each other while supervising me in my office. They've even been caught... giving each other nose sniffs and kisses!

His coat is getting softer by the day and he has put on some more weight. The poor little man was quite bony from his ordeal before coming into rescue, but the vet says that he should settle in to be around an 8 pound cat.

Willy never ceases to be amazed by the turn of events that brought him here and seems so happy. He has a big forever home that he gets to share with a sweet little Meezer princess, no shortage of toys to play with and plenty of fish to watch in their (covered!) aquariums, no shortage of good food and clean water whenever he wants, a Meowmy who works from home and has made room on her desk for Millie beds so he can supervise in comfort, and two- count them- TWO forever people to snuggle up with at night!

Enclosed are some pictures of the little guy in his new home! Thank you again for all the hard work you do helping these wonderful cats find their forever homes!

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.

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.

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!

COURTNEY
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! I follow you everywhere, am excellent in my scratching habits (use my post faithfully) and am very very smart. I'm not much on being picked up but like to be near you whenever possible! Stay tuned as Auntie Siri gets a video of me this afternoon!

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.
