SUSHI
A sleek slim well-pointed meezer I may not be, but your home is definitely the place for me.

I am a snowshoe with paws of white, being with YOU will make our lives right.

Ask about me to see if we're a match, Lisa will let you know I am a good catch!

I will need to be your one and only; it's okay cause we'll never get lonely.

The really hard part that no one knows is these write-up get harder as time flows.

Notes from Home
We renamed Shadow, Sushi, we thought that was cute. She often runs to see us when we come in or any visitors. She loves to be right by us, on the couch or in bed she often jumps up to sit with us, or follows who ever is up and walking around. She has been climbing up under the top cover of the bed and is a little lump underneath, sleeping where it's nice and warm. She loves for us to follow her to her food bowl and sit with her while she eats. She's been planing with the rattle balls and feather wand. I love when she lays on her back she looks so relaxed and we can see all her pretty colors. Once and a while she swats at us, without her claws if she is done with petting. She seems to have stopped any hissing noises.
That's the update so far, she's been really good.

Finally writing another update. Sushi made it through her first vet appointment the end of January. It was a little traumatic for both of us, but they said she looks good. They said she could lose a pound or two. I think I will try a new vet next time, they didn't really answer any of my questions, but it was too much to make Sushi go again to another vet. She did get her rabies shot while we were there and she tested negative for worms. She still is biting plastic a little but doesn't seem to be eating it. She still has a little dandruff. She has discovered some birds out the window now that it's a little warmer. I got her a little perch that hooks on the side of the window we are setting up for her. And she likes the toys on a string, we do too so she doesn't get distracted by our hands. She did hiss a few times lately if we pick her up too close to our face so we are learning what she doesn't like or will tolerate. We will be going on a trip soon and we were really trying not to move her again for my family to watch her, even though my mom and grandma said they would happy to watch her at their house . They said they could also stop by everyday to feed her and clean the box but we also didn't want her to be lonely. So I think we finally found a friend to come sleep over with her while we are away. Hopefully that works out, we thought it would be best not to move her again even if it's just temporary while we are away.

Sushi has been settling in, I think she is happy. She makes bread all the time on our bed and on the blankets on the couches where she sits. We have even got in a few belly rubs while she's on her back. Drew picks her up probably every day, I think she is getting more used to it. She runs to us at the door when we get home and she hasn't swatted at us in a while, or maybe we just know how long she will let us pet her. But I even scratched her under her chin for the first time this week. She is still biting plastic but she likes when I brush her while she is doing that. She loves the shower when it's on. She has been using the scratching posts a lot, I'm wondering if I could try to clip her nails soon, I'm not sure if she would let me. Any tips for clipping nails feel free to let me know, I was watching some videos on youtube.

6 month update: Sushi is doing well, we think she happy and relaxed at home. She loves to sit at the window sill, and doesn't like the summer ac taking up some space at the window. She loves to play and we have lost many toys balls we need to find again. She still loves to bite plastic and has a little dandruff still. I bought some powdered vitamins we try to mix in her wellness food. I also bought some salmon oil I tried in her food but she won't eat it. We haven't been able to cut her nails yet but she has two scratching posts and a cardboard scratcher. We had a friend watch her twice recently while we were away and she seems to purr even more when we get back, we think she misses us when we are gone.

Almost one year update: Sushi is happy the ac is out of the windows, enjoying her free reign on top of the couches. She loves to make bread on her blankets. She still eats the Wellness turkey food with a little bit of crunchy food. She hasn't had a hairball since her first one when she arrived. She still has some dandruff, I see it more when I brush her, but she feels very soft. She hasn't hissed at us in a long time. When we have visitors she runs up to them and meows to say hello. But then if it's too much, she might hiss a little i noticed recently. She still bites the plastic, waiting for her next vet visit to ask about that and some black eye crusties. She is very good using her little box, and likes to play a lot. We have a white hamper she loves to play with and a blue one that makes her very feisty. Sometimes she gets a look in her eye when we are on the couch or in bed and we know she wants to attack us, not sure why that happens, we try to snap her out of it. She sleeps with us most nights on the bed. Drew still picks her up everyday, she doesn't like it too much, but sometimes she jumps on his lap in the morning when he is at the computer. We enjoy having her.

One year update: Sushi has been really good. She comes to bed with us almost every night, sleeps right by our feet. She is usually somewhere nearby watching us or sleeping or asking for treats. She has seemed healthy, no problems using the litter box or eating her food. She likes her water now in the living room, we have two bowls out for her. We will take her for her annual check up soon. We got her a new battery powered ball and feather but she likes the feather the best without the toy on. She likes her toy balls, she was hitting one around last night before she joined us in bed. Sometimes she is pretty vocal when she says hello to us, or is ready for her dinner, or sometimes when we are just sitting on the couch she wants to talk and we can't figure out what she wants. In the morning sometimes she jumps up on Drew's lap while he is on the computer. She is doing well.

March 2017: Sushi seems to have turned a new small leaf, after her one year date. She lays down when I pet her, she lets me scratch/pet her for a while now, her face and her sides. She even climbed down from the couch onto my lap the other day and let me pet her. And, she sat on the couch next to us for a while this week. Those were all really nice changes. Maybe it's because she begs me for treats every morning and I give in, she seems to have warmed up to me even more.

July 2017: Sushi has been rolling on her side on my feet, and letting me scratch her belly a little and her face a lot, she lets us pet her much longer and purring every day. She even runs to us when we call her sometimes. She follows me around a lot and sits right at my feet when I'm working in the kitchen. We did take her to vet since my last note and I wanted to share she got her teeth cleaned. I saw them before and after and they look much better. They did have to sedate her again for the exam which has been upsetting for me that she is so upset, and it was very difficult to get her into a carrier. It took me, with my mom's help, at least a half hour with her meowing the whole time. I wish we didn't have to take her every year, is there any way around this? They said she looked healthy though. They gave me some pills I could try putting in her food to sedate her next time, but if she is not supposed to eat, I'm not sure how that will work. We might try a home service for next time to see how that goes. She is very vocal with visitors, runs up to them meowing loudly. I think she talks to us a lot, and we love getting her love squints.

Notes from Home
8/6/15
Hello All. Here is yet another update from the home owned by Tips and Tigger and partially rented to that crazy cat woman (Big Mommy). Tigger has been unofficially renamed Tigger the Tiny Terror. Wait, you say, how could anyone so adorable be called Terror, Tiny or otherwise?
Well, let me enumerate how: stealing potpourri from the buffet; pulling towels off of towel bars in both bathrooms; stealing Big Mommy's bottles of smelly stuff from the vanity; smelling Tips a-double-scribble to make him swish his tail simply because it is so much fun to play with said tail; loosing countless toys that then Big Mommy and Little Mommy (Emily) have go searching for; grooming Big Mommy's head and eyebrows while she is sleeping. Well, the list could go on and on, but Big Mommy is beginning to get agitated trying to type it all.
Big Mommy calls little Tigger her "bad, bad, baddie boy." Then she looks at him, calls Little Mommy, they talk on the phone and then they laugh and laugh and laugh. And the next thing ya know, Little Mommy is back visiting the Two Ts. Tigger likes that.
One day when Big Mommy was sitting in the chair that the Two Ts have graciously allowed her, suddenly Tigger was spotted dragging his little a-double-scribble across the rug. "Oh my," thought Big Mommy, it's time to take that trip to the Vet she had been thinking of taking. She even said it out loud since Tips wasn't in the room and what does Tigger know, anyway. So Tigger went with Big Mommy, Little Mommy and big brother Tips to the Vet. Well, let me tell you. The next time Tigger will know "Vet" when he hears it, you betcha! It was a really scary place! Poor little Tigger had that same thing stuck up his you-know-what. Then he had other stuff done to him, including something about his poop! Big Mommy was told later that nothing was wrong with his poop. Of course there wasn't; how could anything be wrong with that stuff! And something else happened at that terrible Vet place that wasn't mentioned in Tips' report: both the brothers had a mani-pedi. Really. The guys had a mani-pedi. Ugh! Tips thinks that had something to do with Tigger's very early life as Thumbelina.
Little Mommy reports that Tigger is not such a good student. She has decided not to try any tricks except "Come." Tigger thinks that's a good idea--he he.
Tigger's September, 2015 Update:
TIGGER’S MISSION STATEMENT: PLAY EAT PLAY EAT PLAY EAT PLAY EAT PLAY EAT, etc.
He is just so silly. Here are two quick stories. 1) I just finished peeing, had my but half raised off the seat, when goof-ball jumped up. Being too little to see up over the top, he assumed (incorrectly, of course) that the seat had no hole in it. Well, three of four paws landed okay, but the fourth one was a pee-pee paw for sure. Boy did he run. I had to catch him to wash him off. 2) He often gets up on the sofa to dig between the cushions, as if the spot was a mousy hole. Once he got so enthused with this business of looking for a non-existent mouse in a non-mouse hole that he got himself turned upside down, back up against the back of the sofa, all four paws under his silly little chin, with his tail curled up over his belly. So, what does one do with a tail in that position? One plays with it, of course. Except he got so excited, he bit it, yelped, jumped down off the sofa and ran under it. (I hope you can picture him as I described. It was funny enough with him standing on his head, but when he bit his own tail and yelped, I just lost it.)
What can I say, Tigger is a baby, still.

1/28/16 Tigger's update: Well, Tiggie, as I mostly call him, is very much a baby, a kitten still. And a baddie boy kitten at that. This is the story of his latest escapade. It was 5:00AM, his and brother Tip's usual morning feeding time. I walked into the kitchen in my sleep socks and stepped on something hard and unusual. I ignored it long enough to walk over to the sink and turn on the overhead light. I turned around to see two things: the peacock feather I had just stepped on and Tiggie covered, head to toe, in peacock feathers. "Oh Tiggie, what did you do," I gasped. There he was, his whole little self except for his muzzle, ears and paws, covered in the small, light feathers that go down the shaft of peacock feathers. I knew at once that in the middle of the night he had knocked over the vase on the small table in front of the sliding glass doors in the living room. Baddie boy! I picked him up and groomed him as best I could at 5AM. Meanwhile, brother Tips was meowing for his breakfast. Oh boy, what a cat house I have! I finished pulling feathers off of Tiggie, fed the two kitties and then went to pick up the vase in the living room and the rest of the feathers off of the floor. I found feathers in the kitchen, foyer, living room, dining room, down the hallway, in the spare room (aka the princes room), the powder room--everywhere but in my bedroom. Of course not. Tiggie may be a kitten, but he's not stupid, just endlessly playful. Over the course of the next week or so, every now and then I would find more feathers on Tiggie, He had obviously hidden a stash of peacock feathers where only he could find them, and find them he did. Feather play continued for about another week, after which I finally didn't have to de-feather him anymore. What a cuttie-pie he is, my little kitten, Tigger. He's so cute you just have to forgive him. Besides, it's his job to play. How else will he learn about life.
UPDATE 7/21/16: Tigger is still our little baby boy: Baby Tiggy we call him, even though he's all growed up by now. He's as cute as cute can be and still very playful, unlike big brother Tippy Toes Tips, who feels it his continuous duty to demonstrate feline beauty and dignity. That not being Baby Tiggy's bag, as they say, Baby Tiggy is just silly always and that's it. Silly! We like him that way.
And one more thing, Baby Tiggy and big brother Tippy Toes Tips have a new sister, Tappy. You won't believe what she is: a D-O-G. You got that right, a D-O-G! At first Baby Tiggy was really, really a scaddy-cat, but not so much any more. That's mostly because Tappy is a rescue who is so traumatized that she won't come out of the Princes Room (spare bedroom) and prefers confinement behind a baby gate for her living quarters. But Big Mommy and Little Mommy are working at her rehabilitation and hope that someday soon she will want to come out of her room and joint the rest of the family in the whole house. In the meantime, Tiggy has decided that she's not so bad after all; he'll never be her best friend, but she'll be well tolerated, at least.
On another note, Baby Tiggy is up-to-date on all his shots and vet visits and continues to be ultra cute, cuddly and healthy. We like him that way, too!
7/19/17 Well, hello form Baby Tiggy and all of his family. Tiggy has something to tell you. "I can jump way up and hit the handle to open the bathroom door in my Mommy's room," says Tiggy. At least that's what he would tell you if he could talk like his mommy. That's not all, says Mommy. She thinks he does it to let his big brother Tippy Toe Tips into the bathroom so that Tips can have fun pushing the bottled candles off of the countertop. Mommy says they are both bad boys. Geeshhhh! That's okay, they are both so lovable that Mommy doesn't mind. In fact she's kind of proud of how smart Baby Tiggy is and how brotherly Tiggy and Tips are with each other. And they both want to report that their "sister" (doggy), Unhappy Tappy is still living in the Princess Room exclusively, but she is coming along really well. She no longer hides under the bed all the time whenever Mommy comes into her room. And once she was actually caught playing with Baby Tiggy! Wowwy wow wow, indeed! Everybody is scheduled for the vet's next week with no expectations of any problems. Bye for now from Columbus, NJ.

KILI
Do you like to share? My brother Fili and I do, not much sibling rivalry here. We insist on sharing the same food bowl, the same water bowl, and the same toys. We even snuggle together in a cat bed that foster Mom says was only meant for one. I just have a question for you. Do you happen to have a lap you could share with us? We love to sit together in laps, and get tons of love and attention. Foster Mom shares her lap with us, but she says there's someone out there who will love us and share their laps with us forever. Are you that someone? If so, hurry and ask about us. We'll share our playful antics to keep you entertained, and of course we'll share lots and lots of love.

Notes from Home
Kili has a new name: "Shinobi". He has settled in well and is doing fine. He loves to antagonize his brother even though he's the smaller of the two.
He is a *notorious* picky eater. I'm rotating through three flavors of FF wet after weeks and weeks of trial-and-error. If given something he doesn't like, he'll take a sniff, attempt to cover it up then look at me and complain loudly. When he finally realizes nothing different is forthcoming, he will eventually eat.

No litterbox issues.

He's an absolute joy.


July 19th, 2017
Happy 2nd anniversary!
Shinobi has been eating better this past year; I've identified flavors of wet food that appeal to his persnickety palate.
He's becoming more comfortable in the past couple of months in challenging his brother for my lap, affection and attention, in general. He *LOVES* to be brushed, still has his kitten-level energy and is a real charmer to anyone that visits.
He adores his brother and doesn't hesitate to stand up to him, although Genghis outweighs him by several pounds. He's the more mischievous of the pair, and enjoys knocking things off shelves for the sheer enjoyment factor.
No litter box issues -- EVER.

FILI
Do you like music? We do! My brother and I love to sit and watch foster Mom play piano. I even try my paw at it every now and then. But you don't need a piano to adopt us. You just need enough love for two of the sweetest boys you'll ever want to meet. Foster Mom told me to say that last part. We are happy, outgoing, playful and just everything you could want in a pair of Siamese. Don't wait, ask about us today.

Fili
Notes from Home
Fili has a new name: "Genghis".
He's my snuggle buddy. Likes a lap and has a specific place he likes to sleep: in the crook of my arm.
Watching him play with his brother is hilarious. He is the stockier of the two and gives no thought to body-slamming Shinobi when he's being annoyed.
Having said that, I've never witnessed a stronger bond between cats.

He is a chow-hound. He'll eat whatever is placed in front of him, and then some.

No litterbox issues.


July 19th, 2017
Happy 2 year anniversary!
Genghis is doing well.
He's my affectionate buddy, still loves to sleep in the crook of my arm at night.
Adores his brother but is a tad jealous when Shinobi wants me to pay attention to him.
No health issues, no litter box issues.
He's an absolute joy.

PHOENIX
Red here! I may still be a young kitten but I'm already working on my championship snuggling skills. I just absolutely love to be petted on. I will whine for love and will make sure you pay attention to me. I also love to play. I'm not quite the athlete my brother, Kirk, is but I make a spirited effort at catching the feather toy. I adore fuzzy mice and frequently steal them from other cats.

I'm going to be a big cat as I'm already 5 pounds and nearly twice the size of my sister.

Looking for a family to love!

I am a friendly, outgoing boy with a little bobtail. I do like to talk and I really love to play! I'd love to be your only kitty, but foster mom says I could possibly live with another kitty if they are a good match for me. Check out my new video!

Notes from Home
Thank you for checking in to see how Parker is doing in his new home, one month into his stay ! Parker is settling in just great and we, of course, just love him !!! He still likes his toys that he came to his new home with and also has grown to love our animal pillows and likes running around our home to blow off his extra energy ! He also likes to watch "Animal Planet" - especially, Steve Irwin's show ! All is good and he went to the veterinarian last week for his first wellness check-up and all is good. I will try to attach a recent picture of our new love and thanks again for checking in with us !!!! Update 7-18-16: Parker and I have been together for one year now and are best friends, for sure ! I can't imagine my life without him. He is always glad to see me when I go out for a bit and return, and he's the first thing that I reach for when I wake up every morning. Parker recently went in for his check-up and had his vaccinations all updated and he's doing just fine. One lower canine tooth that had a chip in it when I adopted Parker has now had the enamel on the tooth fill in, so he didn't end up needing a root canal on it, after all (which I was going to have done for him to save the tooth, but it turned out that it wasn't necessary, after all = good !!! ). Thanks for checking up on us and we're doing GREAT !!!!!!

RHAEGAR
I'm a typical, high energy kitten. I love to run, pounce on toys, snuggle with you, run some more, pounce on the featherwand, meow, meow, meow, and eat my kitten food.

I need a playmate either a young cat already at home or another kitten.

Since I am so very curious, make sure those breakable knick-knacks are locked away, all those houseplants are hanging or put outside and cabinets with cleaners are tightly closed.

Notes from Home
So I drove home yesterday with these two new humans. One of em kept looking back at me saying how cute I was. I am pretty adorable. They call me Rhaegar. One said it's a Prince, the other does not like it too much, but she calls me by the name anyway.
It was a long drive and then I got to my new home. It was a little scary at first. The humans put my transport crate down and there was another kitty. She seemed nice but she hissed at me and went away. I think she is not happy with me being here right now. The human said I am her little brother. She gave them a look as if to say "Who said I needed one?" I am sure she will come around.
The humans have a see through door to the room I am staying in. The other kitty can see me but she can't be with me yet. I was still a bit scared and was hiding under the bed. There were a lot of toys on the floor. They kept whizzing by me and I finally couldn't resist and had to investigate.
I really like the small cat tree. It has a little mouse attached on the bottom level and a bird that chirps when you move it on the top level. I REALLY like that bird.
I ate my dinner and used the bathroom like a good boy. The humans are so easily amused. I eat, they think it's an accomplishment. I use the bathroom and they are watching. Seriously, I have no privacy. Back to the bird. I REALLY like that bird. I jumped on the bed and cuddled with the human, for about 5 min, and then I remembered the bird. So I attacked it again. Then back on the bed, chasing their feet. Oh, and they have long hair. That is fun to play with too, especially when they try to fall asleep. I let them sleep for about an hour and a half at 7 am. I was tired and needed a nap. I am actually pretty tired now. I have to rest for a new game with the bird tonight.

I think I like my new home even though the humans are no fun at night.

Rhaegar


Update 5/20/2017:
Tomorrow will be one week since I moved in with the new humans. They're OK, I guess. They play with me for 2 hours before they go to bed. It makes me a little sleepy too. I like to sleep on top of their heads, or on top of the pillow so I can look down on their insignificant bodies. I got a bunch of toys to play with. One of them puts the squeeky bird in the closet at night. Such party poopers!
They removed the screen door to the bedroom and now I can run around the apartment. My older sister, Patches (they call her Patchy Poo, or just Poo,.. or sometimes Poo Bear, don't ask, they're silly) lives in the other rooms. She lets me touch noses, but when I do a fly-by and go for her tail, she hisses sometimes. It gets less every day though. Today, she was sitting on the coffee table, being all high and mighty, and then she started flicking her tail. I took that as an invitation to catch it. If it moves, I have to chase it, bite it, grab it. That's just how it works. She should know! She didn't hiss at me when I did it, but she softly tapped me on the head. I fell over and just grabbed my tail.
Today I also imitated a bear. One of the humans came into the bathroom and I was in there, nosing around. So I stood on my hind legs, put my claws in the air, and swiped at her legs. She started laughing. Not the response a bear would get. I saw it on TV. Guess I need to learn to growl to sound more intimidating. My little chirps just don't do it.
I found a great cat tree in the other bedroom. My sister showed me. I like the little hammocks. I go all the way to the top and look down. I like to bite it too, just cuz I can.

I think I'll stay here for a while. It's not that bad. I bet by the end of next week, I can get my sister to play with me.

Rhaegar

Update 5/31/2017
I had my check up last week. I know, should have told you about it right away. Everything was good, and the doctor said I am soooo cute. She used that many o's. My humans were beaming. I like how they take credit for my cuteness. As if they did something. Humans, weird creatures. But they serve me well, so I'll let it slide. I am now a little over 4 lbs of cuteness. My humans will keep an eye on my canines to make sure that my adult teeth come in correctly. The lady doctor gave me some worm medicine, and I have to come back in 2 weeks for another weight check.

I've been playing with my sister more, and she's playing with me now too. Sometimes when I play too rough, she puts her ears in F-16 wing mode and throws me down. She does it gently though.

One of the humans plays hockey and the equipment bag is sitting in the room with the big cat tree. Me and my sister played King of the Hill on it. Well, she was on top of it, and when I tried to get on, she knocked me down. She thinks she rules the roost...for now.

I hope you enjoy the pictures of me and my sister playing.

Update 7/18/2017:
Today is a big day for me. I lost my last baby canine tooth. I’m going to be a big boy soon! I did very well. They were all pushed out nicely, without any help from the human doctor. She’s really nice, but I don’t like going there. I do get lots of cuddles and everyone wants to hold me. I rather stay home with my moms.

My humans are very well trained at this point. They buy me new toys almost every week. I get bored with the “old” ones easily, or I destroy them. My new favorites are the little squeaky raccoon and the tunnel. I can go in it on one end and race out the other to pounce on my raccoon. It chirps, and then I flick it in the air, swat it around and eventually pick it up and run off with it. I like hiding my toys too. Mom always finds them in odd places when she cleans up. My sister Patches likes the tunnel too, but she doesn’t go it in much when I’m around because I will jump on it.

Patches is a cool sister. She’s always willing to play with me, even if she doesn’t feel like it much. I can tell she gets a little annoyed with me sometimes. That’s when the humans distract me with something else. She also teaches me cool things to do. Like sitting in the bath tub and staring at the humans. It makes them come over and open the faucet for us. Because drinking out of a water bowl, that’s so lame! No respectable cat does that! I’m glad I have a sister who teaches me things like this. I want to be the coolest cat in town!

Mom says I look like a spider monkey sometimes. I like it when she flings me over her shoulder and we walk around like that. I try to grab her hair, and sometimes I bite her in the shoulder. I’ve learned just how hard I can bite so she still lets me and doesn’t squeal. When I get tired, I like to sleep on my moms. They’re nice and cuddly. They also like this. If I do something bad (like try to climb up on the blinds), but I go to them and cuddle, they don’t mind as much. Mom says I’m so cute I could get away with murder. I don’t know what that is, but it sounds like something I’d be good at.
It’s been very hot lately, so we have not been on the balcony much. Mom doesn’t let me and my sister go out there by ourselves. There’s a net out there so birds can’t come in and we can’t get out, but she wants to make sure we don’t bite holes in it, or have any other accident. It’s fun being out there though. Mom dries her hockey gear out there too. Patches likes to roll on her equipment. I just like to try and catch the bugs that fly on the balcony. It’s also a lot of fun watching the birds fly by. I can see why mom won’t let me out here by myself. I get so focused on the birds, I would totally try to jump at them, not thinking of where I was. My moms are smart, just like me.

I can’t wait for Fall so I can spend more time out with mom on the balcony, watching leafs fall. But now it’s time for a nap. I can’t keep this gorgeous body if I don’t take my beauty sleep. I will keep you posted.

SEBASTIAN
Hey, Jinx is the name and here is my story. Well let me tell you that the last few months have not been so good. Somehow I ended up being unwanted and finding myself a stray on the streets. A very nice person saw me and my next stop was an animal shelter with lots of other cats. As you can imagine, that was a bit of a shock too. Then, luckily for me, along came Siamese Rescue and they came to collect me from the shelter and placed me in a foster home. Well, then my luck started to turn around. And despite being given a yukky bath and having my nails trimmed, it really was not so bad. However in the meantime, I came down with a kitty cold and bingo some of the hairs on my lovely dark seal mask on my face started to turn white. Well despite inspecting it every day, it is still there. But I have heard it will turn back to my normal beautiful coloring after a few months. So I am hoping that my luck will change now, especially as you are reading this and soon I will find myself in a loving home, with no more animal shelters in sight. I really am a well behaved boy. Loving, laid back and calm. I love to snuggle with my family at night. Extremely good litter box habits. What more can you ask for in a cat. Looking forward to meeting you soon. Jinx
Notes from Home
It’s so hard to believe that Sebastian, aka Sir Sebastian, aka His Highness, has only been here 5 and ½ weeks, he settled in so quickly. Within an hour of opening his cage he was eating, drinking, and moving litter in his box. Over the time we’ve been together we’ve learned a lot about each other. I think he still has moments where he’s not sure he’s in his fur-ever home, especially when friends he’s meeting for the first time come to visit. I think he’s afraid he’ll be going home with them, but I keep telling him he’s stuck with me forever.

Before he and I met, his foster meowmy, Jane, warned me that he is a Velcro kitty who becomes quite attached to his human. Oh, boy, is he ever Velcro. I almost never have to wonder where in the house he is, as he’s laying right by my side, even in the bathroom. One of his favorite activities is to sit next to me on the kitchen counter and intently watch me prepping ingredients for whatever I’m cooking. I’m pretty sure he’s judging me on my technique. In his favor, though, he does not attempt to eat anything on the counter. He doesn’t seem to like people food at all. He’s just curious about what I’m doing.

He LOVES his toys. Especially his little krinkle balls and mousies, which he takes great pleasure in losing under furniture, and his turbo ball. Shhhh. Don’t tell him, but a Cat Dancer toy is on order. Because our friend Konnee found a toy hidden under the stove, he now thinks there is magic toy portal underneath there, and spends a lot of time lying next to the appliance waiting for more toys to appear. We also spend time almost every day playing with bubbles. Jumping up and popping them with his paws is a favorite sport. He is also a fetcher. He will bring krinkle balls to me so I can throw them for him to retrieve.

Sebastian has also taken over my bed. He insisted on sleeping with me his very first night at home. He lulled me into compliance with purrs and biscuit making. Now he thinks nothing of stretching out on his back right in the middle of the bed, leaving me to somehow curl myself around him to find space for myself. It’s hard to be mad at him for this though, when he wakes me up in the morning with purrs and cuddles. It’s also hard to get angry with a kitty who sleeps with his tongue hanging out.

There is only one bad habit my boy has, and that’s biting. He rarely bites hard, and he seems to use it as a form of communication, usually to say, “I don’t want to be pet right now, I want to play with you.” However, there are times when the bites seem to be for no good reason other than that he’s in a mood. I’m trying the “say ‘OUCH’ very loudly, and then ignore him” technique. I’m having some success with that. He definitely looks contrite when he realizes that he hurt me. I’m pretty sure he’s had a bit of abuse in his past, so I make a concerted effort to be very patient and gentle with him. He’s coming around. With the huge strides he’s made in just under six weeks, I can only imagine what he’s going to be like in six months.

****

Well, six months has come and gone...

His Royal Highness, Sebastian, has finally deemed the house his and is now allowing me to live here, and buy his food and treats and toys and litter, and pay the bills. It took about four months, but he is now very clear with everyone he meets that I am his human. Many mornings we wake up with our arms around each other, and there are many nights when my sleep is interrupted by a purring, drooling, ball of fluff rolling around my head, usually though I just wake up with him perched somewhere on my body.

However, even though my boy had settled into his furever home, there was something missing. Sebastian seemed a bit lonely for feline companionship. So when we’d been together about five months, the opportunity to adopt him a pair of kitten sisters arose and we jumped on it. It took about six days for him to accept that the littles, as we call them, would be a permanent part of his home. He now loves having Harper and Maxine in his life. He grooms them, and wrestles with them, and cuddles with them, and is very easy going when they push him out of the way to eat his food, or they steal his very favorite pompom balls. I’m not sure that the girls could have asked for a better big brother.

My boy still gets a bit bitey from time to time. Often when I’m petting him, and fall asleep on the job, I’m awakened by a nip. I also get nips, on my feet, when I’m not getting breakfast together in a timely enough manner. If the bites are because he doesn’t want to be pet, he will give me a warning snap first, or he’ll just gently wrap his jaw around my wrist to tell me, “no.” Usually with a few calm words he realizes the error of his ways and we can resume what we were doing, or he will move away from me. Overall, though, his bites are just one form of communication he uses. He is much more vocal now than when he first arrived, and in addition to having the most handsome face, he also has one of the most expressive faces I’ve ever seen on a kitty. It is rare that I can’t figure out what he’s thinking by just looking at that face.

Overall, Sebastian has been the best addition to my home. I give thanks every day to Siamese Cat Rescue for bringing us together.

***

Sebastian is still the Prince of the Household, and at the same time one of the most adaptable and easy going cats I've ever met. We're at the one year Adoptaversary mark and there isn't one day that I'm not grateful to Siamese Cat Rescue Center for bringing us together.

His Royal Highness and I did a countdown starting mid-June, and most every day we talked about where he was last year at this time, starting with being at the Baltimore County shelter, and then at Foster Jane's, and finally we're at the day when he was put on the Meezer Express where I finally met him when he reached the end of the line at Foster Jackie's in Bethlehem, PA.

The past six months have been a little rocky health-wise. In late March Sebastian developed a bad Upper Respiratory Infection and while he received an antibiotic injection to clear that up, we ran some tests to see what else might be going on. We unexpectedly found out that he has Feline Herpes and Bartonella. The Herpes isn't curable and seems to be what causes the Upper Respiratory Infections, so we need to watch him for that, but the good news is that he's not likely to pass it on to his sisters. The Bartonella, on the other hand, is one of those Zoo-noses diseases (Cat Scratch Fever), so he was on a course of specially compounded antibiotics for the whole month of April. He was so good about taking his medication. He never ran away from me, or complained about me forcing his mouth open with the syringe each day and squirting it down his throat.

He continues to be such a great big brother to his kitten sisters, who apparently turn a year old the same day (give or take) he and I became a family. As expected, the girls are both bigger than his now eleven(!) pounds, so that puts him at risk of losing their on-going tag team wrestling matches. So far he's holding his own. In addition to wrestling, he loves playing with them (turbo ball anyone?), sitting in the open windows with them, and grooming them. He is almost always the cream to their Oreo cookies when they sleep together. They are all at peace with each other, which is all I ever wanted.

The best news of all is that the biting seems to be going away. He still snaps at me from time to time, but not any where near as ferociously. He almost never makes contact these days, and if he does it's not enough to even break skin. The little spray bottles, and time and love, seem to have done their job.

So, now that year one is in the history books, we look forward to the next twenty and beyond.

Notes from Home
Eleanor ("Ellie") has much more energy then before. She loves to eat, play and nap all day! She also loves her scratching post.
While we are still giving her eye drops once a day, and cleaning her ears periodically, her eyes and ears are clearing up. Now we can see those big beautiful blue eyes!

September 24th 2015:
Eleanor has quite the lot in life. While she is a very loving and cuddly cat she has chronic health issues. About a year after adopting her it was determined she has allergies to dust and dust mites, as well as food allergies. This is on top of Feline Herpes which causes flare ups and makes her extremely itchy. Two years later I am still trying to manage her symptoms, and while she does get constant care with the vet, and a vet dermatologist you can tell she is constantly uncomfortable. One thing I do worry about is how long she is left home alone while I am at work. I do want to make the rescue aware of this issue as when I adopted her it was believed that she had an ear infection. The vet used kept recommending topical ear treatment. Given that ear and skin on cats is very sensitive this caused issues and was never really THE problem. Only after many vet visits did we figure out part of the issue and have her on Famciclovir for flare ups which helps in cycles. I don't need a follow up, again just letting you know in case other felines come in with similar issues. The allergies and herpes has led to itchiness, and excessive grooming.

December 2016: Feline Herpes and Allergy issues. Sensitive skin. Cannot be vaccinated. Immunological issue result in a bad reaction to vaccines. Last vaccine was distemper and rabies, but DR recommended to not do again. Should be okay as long as other pets receive vaccines and animal does not go outside.

February 2017: Eleanor Passed away due to complications with her Feline herpes and other flu like symptoms.

I'm a very sweet, but extremely shy little girl. Foster mom is working hard to entice me into engaging with the world and with people, but it will be a while before I'm ready to venture out into a new home. Hopefully, that home will be a calm and quiet one. I would probably do well with a gentle, perhaps older cat companion who won't play too rough or try to boss me around.

The key to my heart will be patience and a respect for my boundaries - I just need to do things in my own time.

Notes from Home
have been letting cori-dapbne roam since Thurssday evening. she explored and walked by me without slinking but didn't come toward me eiher. evey day i pat and or pick her up from her two "hiding places" to pat or comb her. she eats treats out of my hand and doesn't squirm when i pick her up but i only hold her a minute or less and talk to her.

last night - Saturday and exactly one week since she moved in, she walked into my room around 10.30. i was reading on my bed. i talked to her a bit and she sat under the love seat (it has not skirt so completely open). she sat, then streched and rolled around on her back quite luxuriously.. i flicked my hands on side of bed and she came over and at some point jumped at my hand then scampered back to couch. we both went to bed at that point.

July 16, - Daphe (Cori) has started to consistently come to eat a treat out of my hand and stay to be petted. she loves to be brushed - which is good be she has a full coat! she pretty much follows me around, at a distance though. she purrs now when I pet her. and today she rubbed against my legs to be petted. she discovered the bird feeder traffic outside the LR window and loves the entertainment. she is very playful. all good

progress!!
