Meow! My name is Mazzy
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Please contact Carol (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information about this pet.
I was taken to the shelter because of a new baby in the family; the parents were afraid that I'd bite the baby, since I like to give little love bites. They describe me as shy but sweet, that I take a while to warm up to strangers, and foster meowmy says that's right on! I'm so afraid of the other cats here that foster meowmy has put me in my own pen that's normally reserved for moms and kittens. I have lots of space, can look at everyone who comes in and looks at me, but I don't have to interact with any other cats. I do call out to foster meowmy, and she comes in a lot to pet me and hold me. I'm not wild about being held, but as long as I'm being petted, I'll tolerate it. I just need a quiet home where I'm loved for who I am!
UPDATE: I now have free run of the house, but I spend most of my time under the desk, away from the other cats. Do you have a space for me in your heart?
LATER UPDATE: Mazzy has turned into a lap cat! It took some time, but she now crawls up into her foster meowmy's lap and purrs and purrs. She gives lots of gentle head butts and nudges to get attention, and very gently snuggles up when we notice her! It took time, but she was definitely worth it!
Rescued in Austin, TX, and fostered there, too.

Rescue Group Info...
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!

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.
