My name is Sven Jr. and I'm a very sweet snuggly girl boy!  Unfortunately I used to be Gretel but when we went to the nice Dr. at Emancipet Mom was encouraged to change my name. <LOL> I'm here with my brother Hansel to get our special forever home.  You see we are two babies that were born to the 'barn' cats at the ranch where foster Mom keeps her horse. 

Our mother is not really feral because we've been handled and stick close to the house but the house owner neutered the male cats on her property last year but not the females.  Oh-oh the neighbors have male cats.  This year foster Mom is helping them get all the mothers spayed so there won't be any more kittens.  Unfortunately that doesn't necessarily mean there won't be any more new kitties because people like to dump their pets out there.

Foster Mom would love it if Hansel and I could be adopted together.  I'm a really sweet little girl boy and my brother and I would love to be your special kitties!  Won't you come to meet us?

Update 12-1-16:  Oooops!  Yup it happens.  I checked when they were very little and called it wrong.  Turns out that when I took them to be altered today Gretel is a male name is Sven Jr. (because there is another cat - yellow tabby - that is also up for adoption who is an adult).

About Austin Siamese Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Austin Siamese Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization, formerly the Austin Branch of Texas Siamese Rescue. We focus on the 14 breeds of the Royal Thai Family, including Siamese, Balinese, Javanese, Oriental Shorthairs and Longhairs, Birmans, Burmese, Himalayans, Ocicats, Ragdolls, Snowshoes, and Tonkinese. All of the cats fostered in Austin are cared for in private homes by individuals who dedicate their spare time to this effort.

Our cats come from a variety of backgrounds. Some faced death at the shelter, while others came from abusive and neglectful households. Still others were treasured companions of guardians who could no longer care for them. What they all have in common is a need for a forever home, where they can live their lives as the happy, pampered cats they all deserve to be. We're looking for the perfect inside home for them!

Our Adoption Process...

Interested adopters go through a careful screening process to include reference checks, telephone interviews, and where appropriate, home visits. No cat will be placed in a new home which allows cats to go outside. The adoptive owners agree to give Austin Siamese Rescue, Inc. the option of reclaiming the cat, should the adoption not work to the advantage of the new owner and the cat.

Adoption fees for Austin Siamese Rescue, Inc. range from $100 to $175 and include such vet work as combo test, vaccinations, worming and flea control, and microchip. We spay or neuter all of our cats prior to placement and most of our kittens, depending on their size and readiness.

For more detailed information and our adoption policies, see the Adoption Info section of our web page.
