Facts about Barbie

  • Breed: Siamese
  • Color: Cream Or Ivory (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Barbie was rescued by The TNR Project from a sweet, elderly woman who started feeding a colony after a neighbor passed away. Unfortunately, the deceased had never gotten his kitties spayed or neutered, so a few cats became 20+ quickly. Donna could not afford to have the colony spayed/neutered due to being on social security, but couldn't watch these kitties starve. She met a neighbor who walked daily in her neighborhood, had a conversation about cats and found out about The TNR Project. We then fixed her entire colony for her and had fosters step up to help socialize the kittens so they could be adopted out and into a better life than on the streets.

Barbie was one of those rescued! She is a beautiful Lilac-point Siamese girl with bright, clear Blue Eyes. Barbie is a little bit shy but warms up quickly once you play with her or turn on your heated throw! She's a goof when she plays too....a little cross-eyed and a silly girl!

Barbie Loves:
Scratches behind the ears
Being brushed
Snuggling
Playtime!!! (she is obsessed)
Window watching
Playing with her jingle ball, Da Bird toy, wine corks and kickeroo.
Sitting up high on her scratching post to see what else is happening in the house

We feel Barbie would be better suited to a home with no dogs or children at this time so she can bond with you! On the streets, cats & kittens have to deal with predators constantly. In Barbie's case, she had to run from coyotes nightly and racoons who would violently go after the kittens, so she grew up trying to find safety. After Barbie is bonded with you, we don't believe there is anything she would't do for you...including getting to know a dog!

Siamese History: Siamese cats are highly intelligent, curious and perceptive. They are also very strong willed. In common with other cat breeds from Thailand they are often more like dogs than cats. Not only are they people orientated, they often bond strongly to one person. They will tend to follow that person around. The Siamese retains a kittenish and playful nature throughout its adult life. Though often most suitable as an indoor cat, they are highly active and spirited. The Siamese cat personality is not one to be alone or ignored for long periods.

About The TNR Project

About Our Rescue Group...

The TNR Project humanely & successfully performs TNR which stands for Trap-Neuter-Return. We are a 100% grassroots community movement of volunteers. TNR has been proven to stem community cat growth & overpopulation by controlling the numbers of unwanted cats & kittens on the streets and keep them out of the shelters. We TNR 1000+ cats & kittens every year since 2015. We have classes with FixNation & Alley Cat Allies 3-4x a year to help train people who want to make a difference in their community and to the felines they see. All of the cats & kittens you see here on our site have been born on the streets, abandoned, left to die or worse. They were all community street cats before we stepped in to save them. We do not pull from shelters. We believe that by staying on the streets which is Ground Zero, we will make the difference people are so desperately hoping for....No-Kill Shelters. One shelter we work with experienced a 40% intake decline of cats after we started working their communities. What we prevent from being born on the streets doesn't end up in shelters, being surrendered, being abandoned, clogging the rescues or breeding several times a year with unwanted kittens. We want cats & kittens currently in rescues & shelters to have MORE time available to them to get into a great home...not euthanasia!
We walk the talk and do good where it's needed...on the streets! If you would like more information on TNR or learn how you can help your community cats, please visit: www.thetnrproject.org and fill out a contact us/join us form. Save a stray, save a life! Thank you for rescuing!!

FACT: A mama cat can go into heat again when kittens are 4 weeks old
FACT: A kitten is of breeding age at 16 weeks old (4 months)
FACT: A female cat will go into heat every 2 weeks until mated
FACT: Once pregnant, a female cat will have that litter in 2 months (64 day gestation)
FACT: Once a male is neutered, it significantly decreases the yowling, spraying, fighting & wandering
FACT: Feral cats & kittens don't stand a chance at the shelters due to under-funding, lack of staff and fosters...they are almost 100% of the time euthanized
FACT: Only 2 out of 10 cats usually make it out of the shelters alive, which means 80% of cats entering shelters are euthanized...those are the social ones.
FACT: Black cats are 80% less likely to be adopted due to superstition? Black cats have some of the most intelligent, social personalities around!

DID YOU KNOW: Cats can be written off your taxes as natural pest control for your home or office? Don't use pesticides!
DID YOU KNOW: You can de-flea your property by using beneficial nematodes which are the natural predator to fleas?
DID YOU KNOW: Cats not only take care of rats & insects, they thwart gophers and squirrels?
DID YOU KNOW: It's not always cats who are pooping in your yard? Can you tell the difference between skunk, opossum, raccoon, coyote, dog and cat feces?.
