Home Again and Again and Again

Simon says we're going to get a new home. I thought we had one, but then one day we didn't. Actually, that happened several times. Simon says it's not our fault.

Simon says this time we won't have to leave again. He knows this stuff because he's older than me. I've been with him since I was really young, almost a kitten, after I lost my claws, and the nice lady at the vet, Amber, gave me a new home, a better one than I had before. I keep rubbing my paws on the scratching post, but my claws don't ever come back. So usually I stand behind Simon because he's big. I'm big too, but he has claws.

I wish we were still with Amber, but Simon says people die, just like animals, sometimes young. I'm young still. The new vet says I'm younger than the 8 years my papers say.

Simon says there's other nice people in the world who will give us a good home, with toys and food and water and did I mention toys? Oh, and something to climb on. And they'll brush us every day and pet us, just like Amber did. I hope he's right. He's a Siamese, and they're supposed to be smart.

I'm smart too. I'm a big red oyster tabby. But my eyes are blue, at least in some lights. Simon says that doesn't matter. I hope he's right about that too.

UPDATE FROM THE DUKE: My friend Simon died too, and I'm so sad without him. Why does everybody have to die? The foster lady says I can stay with her forever, and that's nice...but it isn't, not really. There's so many cats here, jumpy little kittens and big old fellows who don't like me. So don't tell her, because I don't want to hurt her feelings, but I'd really like another home, maybe just me and you. Please?

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.
