Notes from Home
Hi All, Stig is a happy playful and affectionate cat. He is very happy in his new home.. He did start having vomiting and diarrhea after about two weeks. Luckily i had started the food panel for allergies. And he came back positive for alfalfa, green pea, milk and tomato. And I was feeding him Natural Balance with green pea! I put him on an appropriate food and now he is fine, and getting sleek. Apparently Siamese are very prone to food allergies as every Siamese I've had has had them. And to different things. Hopefully Stig will have a long and healthy life now that his allergies have been identified.Thanks again to all, Sue Greathouse Stig continues to do well. No problems. He loves his food! He is adorable. Sue Hi,8/15/15 update-Stig continues to do well.. We moved to a home with a yard and he loves going outside with supervision. He has no health issues and is staying on appropriate food for his allergies. He seems to realize this is his forever home and is very playful and affectionate. Sue 8/14/17 Stig is a wonderful cat. He is such a good cat, has good litterbox habits and loves to hang out where his people are. I continue to feed him food that does not trigger his food allergies. His only problem is getting him to the vet, he does not want to leave his home and turns into the tasmanian devil when I try to get him in his carrier to go. Sue

Well...here I am with a foster meowm that thinks I'm absolutely beautiful. She thinks I'm a lilac...not sure what that has to do with things cause I'm just an active little one that enjoys wand toys & food. Did I mention that I like food???

I need a forever home that has a lot of love to give & another kitty to hang out with. I'm a confident one, so I may want to be in charge.

If you think I'm as beautiful & swell as my foster meowm, then ask about me!

Sammy is getting to be such a big boy ! He still loves ALL toys and occasionally will stop for an afternoon nap. (See pics)

Hi! I'm Tulip. Meom says I'm as beautiful as a spring tulip too!
I was really scared before coming here to my foster meom. I didn't know whether I would ever have a safe, comfy home ever again. But my Tia kept me company as we wander for a day. Some nice neighbor brought us back inside.
Then we went to a shelter! Whoa! I didn't like it at all. Then we went to the vet! I didn't like that either. Then our new foster meom came to get us out of there. So it took me a little while to settle in here but everything is wonderful now.
She feeds me and talks to me sweetly! Now I feel better, safer.
Maybe you can be my furever person though. Meom says I will be loved by a very devoted peoples next and never be left to fend for myself again.

It took a few days for Tulip to warm up to me. She was mad at me for taking her away from her foster mommy. She is now my buddy and will snuggle with me.
Tulip has meet her brothers, Rockport and Lionel. She is ignoring them but everything is fine. Rockport really loves her and likes to be with her. They kind of hang out together. Lionel ignores her and stays away from her for now. I am so glad I got to adopt Tulip. I love her. I want to thank everyone who helped to make this happen!
Tulip is such a joy. She has taken over the roll as Lady of the House, she did have big paws to fill! Rockport and her are getting use to each other. They always eat together and sometimes even sleep on my bed together. Occasional growling and hissing, but less and less. Lionel and Tulip totally ignore each other. Lionel stays on the first floor and Tulip likes to stay on the second floor where her domain is. She loves to cuddle and be kissed. Tulip likes to knead on my neck but it does not fell too good. I have to bear with it so I don't hurt her feelings. I love her so much!
2/11/17 I am so lucky I was the one who got to adopt Tulip. She is such a character. She rules the boys and lets them know when she is not satisfied with them. She met Precious, my husband's 22 year old female Blue Point. They like each other. I had Tulip to the vets for blood work 2 months ago and everything came back normal. She is still very active, uses the cat tree, and loves her cat nip bags. She still kneads on my neck, still does not feel too good..but I am getting use to it. Her deep meezer meow is awesome. We love her! Thank you all...Apryl & Chris

What a wonderful year it has been living with Tulip. She still runs the house, keeps her brothers in line and helps take care of her older sister. Tulip is an amazing little girl...a busy body, and we love her. She was to the vets a few months ago for shots and a senior blood workup, everything came back normal. Thank you Carol for being a great foster Mommy, Kathy, Lisa, Siri, and all the people at Siamese Rescue who helped with the rescue of Tulip and all the Siamese Babies. Apryl& Chris

Attractive traditional seal point Siamese seeking loving family for purrs, cuddles and supervision of daily activities.

Luna is very people oriented and enjoys participating in activities like housework or scooping the litter boxes. She is moderately vocal and has a passion for Party Mix treats and watching the "tasty" songbirds outside her window. She is gentle around respectful children and loves to be brushed and fussed over. She will sit in laps or nearby - a true companion kitty. Luna is not super needy but is a mellow girl who enjoys being around her family.

Luna is healthy, has excellent manners and true Siamese cattitude. She will make an exceptional friend and companion.

Luna has reached her first year "🎂 re-birthday" as a member of our family! We are celebrating with her fast asleep in her Millie bed as I type on my phone :) She is such a special, dear one to us all, even with the occasional reminders of her Seal Point catittude (haha!!). It has been nonths since I heard a hiss, though. Mostly when she gets "the 'tude", she really just wants to play. At least 11 years old, and her demand is just "let's play!" I love it! Her health has been great, and with careful diet watching she is remaining within a healthy weight range...though, losing a bit would not hurt her one iota.

I keep telling Foster Mary she needs to get more flattering pictures of me. Then I tricks her and either turn my head or shut my baby blues. She's so much fun to trick.

Be sure to check out my new video. Come to find out I love playing with kids (if they are kind to me). A good game of fetch with hide and seek the toy are great fun.

I would love to be your only furkid as I do like to have plenty of attention, but I could live with another cat or two as long as they aren't aggressive or bossy with me. I don't tolerate bossy very well and will easily let it me known that I'm not a pushover.
I have a gentle nature and am politely playful. Heck I'm even good for my manicures!!!

If you are seeking a sweet young sealie girl who isn't overly playful but will play and will bond with you, who is a moderate talker, who will pat your leg when she wants attention....well then you gotta ask about me to find out more.

Bella adapted quite well to her new surroundings and to me. She's a wonderful cat! After keeping Holly and Bella separate for one week, on their first encounter, they sniffed each other, circled, walked with me down the hall to the kitchen and then had one skirmish under the kitchen table and Bella chased Holly upstairs & another skirmish took place under my bed. I separated them again. For 17 days they've been mostly separated. One is confined to the bedroom or living room and the other runs free through the rest of the place/ Every couple hours I switch them around. Each has been in the room where the other one was, have smelled each others kitty litter, they often curl up on the place where the other had been. Then I borrowed a large wire cage from a friend so they could safely be with one another instead of one behind a closed door. Neither one liked being in the cage more than 15-20 min. Holly feels threatened but is hissing and growling less when Bella comes near while Holly is in the cage. If I hold one and bring her close (not in the cage) to the other it's OK for a few minutes.
My vet, Dr. Bujalski, came back from vacation today, and suggested I buy a harness and a leash so I can restrain Bella when she tries to run after Holly. He also suggested playing more with Holly and buying Food Puzzles for cats so she works off some of her energy. I asked him about Remedy drops. He recommended them and said I could buy them at Whole Foods, but I found Rescue Remedy for pets near where I live at a natural food store. (They told me that Rescue Remedy for humans has a brandy base, and for pets--it's alochoal free.) Dr. B. found that Bella had conjunctivitis and gave me drops and taught me how to give drops in both eyes mornings and evenings for 5-7 days.
Holly is fascinated by Bella, but very intimidated by her. I find when I go to look for Holly in the living room where she has been confined without Bella around, she has found a hiding place, and in the bedroom she will hide under the bed or dresser even when Bella is not around.
Dr. B. said it is probably going to take some time. Wish m e luck in getting a harness on Bella for their next encounter!
9,11,12 Both Holly and Bella are doing well, however, I still feel I cannot leave them alone together. Progress is slow. When I bring them together it is with Bella in the cage or Bella on a halter and leash. Bella is eager to get closer to Holly, and crawls toward her submissively, but if she gets closer than a foot away, Holly growls. When Holly sees me taking Bella out of the cage or putting on her halter, she runs and hides. But there have been several (6-7) occasions where Bella approached Holly and they lie within 1 to 3 feet of each other, staring at each other, Bella with her tail wagging like a dog (and I have Bella on the leash). If Holly starts to run upstairs, Bella tries to race after her. I still leave work 1-2x/day to switch them around--one confined to one room, the other free. In the evening we are together in the living room with Bella on the leash.

Bella had her annual physical on the 9th. Dr. Bujalski found everything fine and the blood work report the next day also. I told him she was eating less and he suggested that I alternate the kidney diet with other food. He had found crystals in her urine last year so she has been on the Royal Canin renal diet--both meaty and dry food and I mixed in a bit of Fancy Food diet with the meaty renal diet.
She was suffering from allergies--scratching her cheeks, rubbing her eyes, licking her anal area. In the past he gave a cortisone shot. But a few months ago he tried an antibiotic that did not alleviate the problem so he prescribed prednisone tablets--and that has worked well. At first she took 2 pills/day and lately she has been on 1/2 pill/day (2.5 mg?) and now we are trying half a pill every other day.
Bella is intrigued with Nieko's arrival, lies down 2 feet from the living room closed door when she knows Nieko is in the LR. Lisa Downing loaned me a gate and that seemed to work with a cat on either side until day 2 when Nieko jumped up on it and the next day over it. Then I tried putting Bella in the carrier, letting Nieko out of the LR. Bella hissed a bit while Nieko was rubbing his cheeks not the carrier. A few days later when Bella was in the upstairs bedroom, I opened the door a little and let the two cats meet through a crack. It was going well so I widened the gap, they rubbed noses, but all of a sudden they were at each other --bounding down the stairs and both made their way under a large desk where I could not reach them. Bella got under a dresser. When Nieko came out, I checked to make sure he was not hurt and put him back in the LR. When Bella came out, I checked to make sure she had no wounds. She kept looking at the LR door from the kitchen. Yesterday I put Bella in her carrier again and let Nieko come up but Bella growled and hissed. When I had put Nieko in his carrier, Bella did not show much interest.
Next I thought I might try letting each of them alone into the room of the other--Bella into the living room where Nieko has stayed and Nieko into the BR where Bella has been so they can get used to each other's smells that way. I was not doing that as long as I thought it possible that Nieko's sore in the ear might be ringworm. When Bella is in the upstairs BR, I let Nieko have the run of the rest of the place, and then when Nieko is back in the LR, I let Bella out to have the run of the place and I spend a lot of time with each separately--now that I am retired.
8/13/17 Bella is going for her annual check up and shots Aug. 23. I took her to the vet 3 or 4 mo. ago since she was producing a lot of urine and I suspected kidney failure, but Dr. B. said he thought it was from being on cortisone and on the special Royal Canin Urinary SO dry diet after in an earlier check up, crystals were found in her urine. The blood tests did not indicate the beginning of kidney failure.
Bella developed allergies--scratching her face, licking her anal area and initially she was given cortisone shots twice, I believe, but now she is on half a cortisone pill every other day and I give her eye drops in each eye daily. Her primary home is my upstairs bedroom. When I lead Nieko to the living room with food and shut the door, I let Bella out of the bedroom. She likes to be with me, seeks affection. But then she also goes under a desk where she has gone when chased by Nieko. If I leave while she is free to roam, I will come home and find that she had gone back up to the bedroom.
She also likes to play with the cat dancer and other toys, likes to be brushed, and she sleeps on my bed at night while Nieko sleeps in the living room.

Youuuu hoooo, anyone out there looking for a sweet, laid back boy like me? I love all the kitties here, eat all my food without comlaint, Chirp at meowmy when I'm happy and so want a home of my own.

I'm a bit shy at first, but if you give me time to adjust, I'll reward you by letting you rub my belly. So how about asking about me? I'm all ready to go and have my bags packed!

Notes from Home

Bay (previously Copper) is so lovable!! He purrs all the time, I could just look at him or sit by him and he starts purring. He has to sleep on me every night. He has always been head shy and has not liked to be held but in the past couple years he has improoved so much. Just this week he let my mother pIck him up and snuggle him. He loves my fiance and his son, sometimes more than me. He is one of the best cats I have ever owned. He is my baby and I am so thankful I found him on your site 6yrs ago.

Notes from Home
Handsome Nieko is a delightful cat who follows me around, curls up next to me on the opened up sofa bed, loves to play with the long braided colorful felt toy on a stick, and with his toy mouse, and balls!
He is eager to get to know Bella. But he was kept separate for 7-8 days. When Bella was behind the closed bedroom door he would bound up the stairs and lie outside the door. Once I woke up to hear him give out a cry at the BR door at about 2 am and then the next night it happened at about 3 a.m.
Bella was not as enthused. She met him when I first brought him in the carrier--and hissed twice before I took Nieko into the LR. When I put Bella in her carrier to take her to the vet on the 9th for her annual check up, I let Nieko out of the LR and he went right up to the carrier, rubbing on it --his chin on the front grate. Bella hissed a few times. When we returned from the vet, I left Bella in the carrier for maybe 5 min. and the same happened.
I tried the metal gate at the living room door that Lisa Downing loaned me, but it was only effective for a day or two as Nieko could leap over it. With Nieko in the LR, I would open the door a crack and Nieko would extend his paws, but Bella would not come up to the door, but watched for 2 ft away.
Then (day 10) when Bella was in the upstairs BR, Nieko went up with me, I opened the door a crack and they both were extending paws, no hissing, and I opened it a little wider and they nuzzled, no hissing, but suddenly they were at each other and bounding down the stairs and shrieking. It looked like Nieko attacking and Bella trying to get away. I followed with a water bottle and a towel to break it up, but both found their way under a large desk and then Bella under an nearby chest of drawers with a cloth cover extending to the floor that she hid behind it. When he emerged I checked Nieko for wounds and then put him in the LR and closed the door and checked Bella when she emerged. Both were OK.
8/13/17 Nieko (Neeko) had his check up July 19th. He was fine, got his shots, needs to lose some weight. Dr. B. suggested I cut back on the dry diet (Royal Canin Urinary SO moderate calories prescribed for Bella). Nieko is delightful, loves to chase his furry mice, a ball, and leap at the cat dancer and other dangling toys.

I have kept Bella and Nieko separate most of the time. When Nieko falls asleep in the Living room, I shut the door and let Bella out of the upstairs BR, and vice versa. Since I am home a lot now (retired), they each get hours with me and the chance to wander in most of the rooms.

I witnessed 2 fights--with Nieko attacking Bella and my cat sitter witnessed 2 more. I am again trying Rescue Remedy drops in their food, and I am going to try hormone diffuser again for more hours than II've tried in the past--suggested by Dr. B.

If I put Bella briefly in her carrier, Nieko comes up, rubs his cheeks on the grill and wants to be friends, but Bella hisses and growls.

I have a problem with my right eye that will be permanent. The vet says that my eye injury is old and does not need to be treated. It reacts to light and movement. There is no way to predict if it will cause me problems in the future, but certainly not now. But I am so beautiful that you will not even notice it. I stay so very busy trying to get as many pets in as I can that no one is going to get a good stare at it if I can help it. It is not going to define my life. I seem to be okay with other cats, but dogs are really scary.Who needs dogs anyway? I do need lots of hands to help me keep my plush coat gorgeous.
Notes from Home
Greetings everyone at Siamese Rescue and foster Meowm!

I just passed my two-week anniversary in my fur-ever home, and I couldn’t be happier. My meown is the best and so are my big brothers, all three of them.

Do you have some time? I would like to tell my story thus far, especially now that I have convinced meowm to write an update. I discovered that I am not the only kitty here to be adopted from Siamese Rescue and I think I’ve got the other rescues to on board to have meowm write updates for them too. So, keep an eye or two out for those.

My storybook tale began on July 1st. I had a long trip through Meezer Express to my final destination here in West Virginia. That’s West Virginia not western Virginia. Everybody who traveled with me commented on my beauty and sweetness. I think some were a little disappointed that I couldn’t stay with them. There were no problems along the way and I am most grateful to all those who helped me get to my fur-ever home. When meowm saw me up close for the first time she thought I was cutest thing she had “ever” seen. And I am, don’t you know it?

When I got home, meowm put me in a room all by myself. She stayed with me and played with me for a long time. While I played, I kept seeing these noses appear under the door. One was black, one was gray, and one was brown. When I went to investigate, every time a paw would suddenly shoot out from under the door. One was black and brown, one was gray, and one white and gray. Now, I am still just a baby but that told me that there were other critters in my house. I had fun playing paws with my new friends.

The next day meowm took me out of my room and we watched TV and played games on her bed. She had shut the door but I could see those same noses and paws again. She put me back in my room before she went to sleep. I didn’t want to go so I dashed the door and met face to face, nose to nose actually, with another cat. It didn’t hiss at me. I think I scared it as much as it scared me. Instead of a hiss, it sneezed on me. Yuck! Meowm caught me and put me back in my room before the cat could sneeze on me again. Boy was that cat big.

On Monday, I dashed the door every time meowm opened it. The last time I did I went right through the railing to the stairs and discovered a whole new world. So much room to explore and there were more cats. This house has three besides me. Funny thing was that they weren’t immediately interested in me but rather my toys. They took all my toys. I didn’t really mind though because I found a big box of toys when I was exploring. So much to do. After dashing the door a half dozen times or so meown gave up on my confinement and let me out. I finally met all my brothers: Jacques, Irving, and Finnegan. They are so much fun to play with. They have only ever been the nicest of gentlemen to me. Finnegan seems a little sweet on me. He gives me baths.

Jacques is also from Siamese Rescue. Every cat’s name is special. Jacques got his because meowm went to France not long after he came to be with her. Irving got his name because meowm teaches at a middle school, Washington Irving. A colleague of hers brought him to school one day and he went home with her. He is as ornery as her students are according to meowm. And Finnegan got his name because a trip to Ireland is next on meowm’s bucket list. And me? Well, she gave me a new name too. My name is Yazhi. It’s pronounced Yahz- hee. It’s Navajo, and means “little one”. Meowm thinks I’m going to be a little kitty. She’s into language, she even speaks cat, and that’s why we have the names we do. She even has a betta fish. It’s named after the Greek letter Mu.

I guess that’s all for now.

Purrs and biscuits,

Yazhi (FKA Shammie)

PS: Meowm posted a picture of me. She’s a shutterbug, so be on the lookout for more pictures. I’ll make sure she posts more and updates from time to time. Ciao!


I've had my "meet and greet" with my vet (one of two) here. Dr, McCutcheon. He thought I was cute, in very good health, and is not worried about my eye. He thinks I can see with it. I haven't met Dr. Canfield yet. I'm sure I will eventually. I'm writing this because meowm gave me some news today and I am not sure how I feel about. She told me I am getting a sister soon, maybe this weekend. One would have thought that my brother's and me would have been enough. Meowm's heart is really big. She looking forward to the kitty, so I guess I am too. While I am here at the computer I thought I would upload a few more pictures. I hope you like them.



Oops! I’m a bit late in updating. Please forgive me, but I’m just too busy to sit down in front of the computer and peck at a keyboard. Besides, meowm is using it for lesson plans and other stuff.

Let me tell you a bit about a normal day in my life. During the week my day begins early, 5:15 in the blessed morning. Meowm has got to get up and go to work now. Bummer! Anyway, after breakfast, it’s playtime. Me and Jacques, he’s the meezer geezer, race and play tag, mostly in the rooms on the ground floor. It’s a lot of fun. He’s pretty quick for an old man. Next, it’s tag with Finnegan. We race each other up and down the stairs. There are two flights of stairs in this old house. It’s a lot of fun too. I like skidding across the hardwood floor on the second level. It’s like skating. Later, me and Irving play with these springs. We tote them all over the house and bat them to each other in a game of badminton. Meowm is determined to get a picture of one us toting a spring. That’s my morning routine. In the afternoon, we all like to curl up on the couch and nap. Irving is a big, fat pillow. The only thing missing is meowm. Why did July have to end? When meowm gets home in the afternoon, I am first to greet her. Everything starts again in the evening for meowm’s amusement.

My favorite thing is Friday evenings. Meowm pops a DVD into to the player and curls up on the chaise lounge under a blanket. One by one me and my brothers pile on top of her. I usually curl up right under her chin, Irving takes her belly, and Jacques and Finnegan split her legs. Meowm is stuck there like that for at least two hours. It’s the best. We can’t wait for Gytha to join us, although I’m not sure where she’ll find room. Meowm says it will be a while yet before we will have to worry about that.

A couple of weeks ago this red dot appeared on the floor. It moved and I could not resist chasing it. I was not alone. Irving and Finnegan couldn’t resist either. Only Jacques had the power to resist. Chasing it was fun and it would appear here, there, and everywhere. Then it did something really weird. The red dot would lead us into meowm’s room and the door would shut. Meowm would then disappear into the other room. I didn’t like that little trick. My sister is in the that room and all I wanted to do was meet her and play with her. I just couldn’t resist following that red dot. Now, it only appears on the lower level, and I can go into my sister’s room whenever I please.

My sister Gytha is pretty cool but wobbly. I want to play with her, but meowm says I have to be gentle. I can’t wait until she can join in all our kitty games.

Well, break time is over. Can you hear the pitter patter of kitty feet? Got things to do…

Lily is a shy girl who quickly warms up once she gets to know you. She will need a quiet home with no kids or dogs and adopters who will give her time to thrive. When she warms up to you, she is an extremely affectionate girl who loves attention, loves other cats, and loves to play. She is a bit fluffy.

Lily has some medical issues of concern. She has hip dysplasia in both hips that will require FHO surgery. Later, she may need additional surgery for bilateral medial luxating patellas (dislocated knee caps). The prognosis for the hips is very good and the prognosis for the knees is excellent. She can have a long and wonderful life, but will need these surgeries to attain that.

She is a wonderful girl who is worth the time, effort, and money. She needs a special adopter who is willing to open their heart and wallet to help her get the life she deserves. If that sounds like you, then be sure to ask about her!

Check out her new photos!

Notes from Home

Home at last, I think. I mean I hope this is home after such a long trip in a car. Just the last leg alone was two and half hours. There was some fog and some slow traffic, but the driver was a good one, a professional kitty taxi driver. When the car finally stopped moving this human claiming to be my meowm whisked me away faster than lightning to my room. She opened the door to my carrier but I stayed in my make-shift litter box. This new meowm laid down the floor with a big pillow. She spoke softly to me and I just winked back. Eventually, I think she dozed off. I took advantage of the opportunity to explore and use a proper litter box. Scratching around in the litter box got meowm's attention. She watched me like a hawk and when I was done, she was ready with some pets and chin scratches. I wasn't in the mood so I hissed at her and quickly went back to my litter box. At some point, she took off my collar. What a relief! I explored some more and this time let meowm pet and scratch me. It was nice. I ate, took my meds, and did my pt. Meown really needs to work on that. She good about giving me my meds, especially the stuff in the syringes and droppers, but she doesn't have the hang of the pt yet. No doubt she will get better with all the practice. I think she's gonna be a good meowm.


Meowm came in and I couldn't wait to get out of my carrier. I think I explored the whole room. After breakfast, I was famished, I marched all over the room. Meowm was amazed at how well I walked. I found a catnip cat scratcher and made use of it. Boy did that feel good!. Meowm ate her breakfast with me. I wanted her to share. I told her as much by rubbing against her feet and legs. She refused, saying that avocados aren't good for kitties. What's an avocado? When she finished her breakfast I showed her my belly which she scratched and tickled. I wrapped myself around her hand and kicked and nipped like cats do. She said ouch once to twice but otherwise didn't seem to mind. I guess my claws are a bit sharp. Finally, I found a nice sunny spot on the floor and took a bath. I really needed one. I'm a lady after all and the cone collar really makes it hard for a girl to take of business. Meowm put the collar on again when I showed some interest in my stitches.

I have my meet and greet with the vet on Thursday. Meowm says I'll be getting my stitches removed at that time too, Yippy! I'll let you know what the vet thinks of me.

Meowm also told me my new name. It's Gytha, pronounced j-eye-dah. It's an old Saxon name, and a royal one. It's means "gift" in England and in the Norse countries, "warrior". Meowm says I'm beautiful, precious, and a fighter to endure the pain of my condition, the surgery, and the pt. And that is why she is calling me Gytha.

Winks until next time,

Gytha FKA Lily

Meowm's posting some pics from my first night here. I hope you enjoy them.


Meowm here. Just couldn't resist sharing these pictures of my convalescing kitty taken after afternoon physical therapy.


I just got back from my meet and greet with the vet. Today I met Dr. Canfield. She really loves my looks. She said I was beautifully marked. I also impressed her with my tolerance for this and that and the progress I have made since my surgery. She even said that she had spoken with my surgeon and that she, too, is eager to watch my continued progress. It looks like between meowm and the vet I will be in good hands. They agreed that I should continue with my isolation, and the vet felt that it was a good idea if one of the other cats kittensat while meowm was at school. School? What's that? Why can't I be there with meowm too? There ought to be a law or something that says my meowm doesn't have to go! At least not in August!

I surprised meowm yesterday twice, First, before we began our PT session I showed meowm I could do it I myself. I stretched my legs in and out without her help. Four reps. Later, I wanted to let her know that I like her a lot so I did crazy eights around her legs. Meowm just stood there like Colossus. At first I thought I did something wrong, but then I looked up at her and I could tell by her grin and the twinkle in her eyes that doing those crazy eights was a good thing.

I am slowly getting to know the other kitties here. I've met Jacques and Yazhi. Yazhi tries to play with me, while Jacques just goes about his business. He did try and play with me once, but he moved so fast toward me that he scared me and I hissed at him. He stopped dead in his tracks. I've got some meow power. As meowm was shooing those two out of the room, Irving came in. He's a really big cat. He went straight for the toy box. I just kept playing with my mouse on a string. I did have an eye on him though just in case. Anyway, at some point, the mouse got away from me and I tapped Irving on his butt. I must have spooked him something awful because he somersaulted about two feet into the air. Meowm couldn't stop laughing and Irving had such a look of shame on his face.So classic. I couldn't help but think "oh yeah! the bigger they are...".

Yesterday, meowm went to the zoo. She said the lynx was a no show, but the tiger and leopards were magnificent. I'm just glad she didn't bring one of those home.

Purrs and winks,



Two weeks? I’ve been here two weeks! Wow! It seems like a lifetime. I’ve got meowm wrapped around my paws, and my brothers and my sister too. Honestly, I couldn’t be happier. I have met all my siblings and I like them. Yazhi really wants me to play with her and I follow her around when meowm lets me out of my room. I’m walking pretty well on the carpet. The hardwood floors are a bit slippery and I am not as steady on my feet, but I can move like lightning. I just can’t keep up with her. I am getting bolder too. I am starting to climb on things low to the ground. I once climbed onto the couch, meowm has been bringing me down to the lower level, and nearly gave meowm a heart attack. The first time she brought me downstairs, I marched myself right back up the stairs and to my room when I got tired. Meowm was powerless to do anything about it. I moved very fast. She hasn’t been so lenient with me since. She’s worried that I might hurt myself. Meowms, you just got to love them!

Meowm’s been trying to get some video of me walking about. When she does and can figure out how to post it, she will.

Winks and purrs,

Snowshoes rule!

I'm a low key girl that just wants a person of my own to love and hang out with. I follow Foster Mom around and am always somewhere close by. I love to be brushed and petted and love attention. I also love to eat but Foster Mom has me on a diet (Phooey!) because I still need to lose some weight. I have lost almost 2 pounds since I've been here - does she want me to waste away to nothing? I love cardboard scratchers and hanging out in big soft millie beds. I don't jump or climb up on anything. Foster Mom calls me a floor dweller. (That's a bit rude - don't you think?)

I get along just fine with the other three Siamese girls that live here. I came to Foster Mom's with some toys from my old home and I'm very protective of those and line them up on my fleece pad that I sleep on at night. If I spend the night in a millie bed I always bring a toy to bed with me.

I won't share my toys but I will share lots and lots of love so if you're looking for a wonderful companion please ask about me. I can't wait to hear from you!
Notes from Home
Phoebe is such a sweet and happy girl. We just love her.

So very sad to report that my beautiful beloved Phoebe was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer.
We spent her last days celebrating her life; giving cuddles and coming to terms with the
fact that her time with us would be very short.

She passed away peacefully on August 9th. I will miss her everyday of my life.

I had Phoebe for less than six months, but I loved her as though she was mine
from the beginning. She was smart, gentle, beautiful, and a funny little girl.
I will miss her furry face.

My heart is completely broken.
