Story
Hi There!!!  My name is Ghost, or as my foster dad calls me, Ghosty with the Mosty.  I love my foster home, but I am looking for my forever home and parents.  I am a very good boy and foster dad says that I am more like a dog than a cat. I am sweet, affectionate, and loving, even allowing belly rubs, but on my terms, meaning that I do seek out love, but am not your typical lap cat. I am outgoing and independent and love to play, even getting bouts of the zoomies every so often.  I will also follow you around the house like a little lost pup with no boundaries.  And yes, I will even follow you into the bathroom for affection, often plopping down right between your legs to keep you company in there. I get along with other cats, though I do tend to be an alpha, so I like being the dominant one in the relationship.  I also get along fine with dogs of all sizes who respect my boundaries.  If not, they may just get a boop on the nose to remind them of who is boss.  Lol.  As you can see from my pictures, I am a gorgeous solid white kitty with a fluffy tail and the most stunning green eyes. I have perfect litter box and scratching manners and would be the best addition to your family.  Won't you please adopt me??? ##1968531##

Story
Who doesn't adore a sweet tabby. Mueschka has undertones of calico in her fur making her unique. She's a laid back girl but she still loves rough housing with her brother and the other cats, racing them up the stairs during play time. Mueschke loves snuggling with my older cat and letting him groom her. She loves snuggling in the evenings and will come for love and pets. She was born in our rescue on October 15, 2022. Her mom was a dilute calico point Siamese. She would love to be adopted with her brother Becker. She is fostered in Kyle, TX. Please see our adoption policies and information at www.austinsiameserescue.org. ##1968269##

Story
Magoo is a male golden Tabby with black tiger stripes and big green eyes. He is blind and navigates the world a little differently. In the time Magoo has been with us, he has become very vocal.  He likes to trill a lot and meow when he hears us walk into a room, especially the kitchen as he hopes to then hear the opening of his favorite can of pate'. Magoo has had most of his teeth extracted and prefers wet food. He is also a very accomplished beggar.  When he hears us sitting down to eat and smells our food, he comes and sits right near the table hoping for some of what we are having. When Magoo first came to us, he was suffering from seizures, but with treatment of phenobarbital, his seizures have become extremely rare. He is very sweet, with a big personality and deserves a forever home! Please contact Austin Siamese Rescue or the foster listed with any questions. ##1965902##

Meet Purrnama! This friendly gentle giant could never get tired of neck scratches and walks right up to you when he's ready for some love (which is all the time). He's 5 years young and is a big boy who does well with other cats, dogs, and even kids! Purrnama is a sucker for toys and loves to show off his playing skills (we can't lie, he's pretty good). After tiring himself out, he loves to curl up for a nap near his human. Purrnama is currently at our Petsmart Cattery in North Austin (12901 N Interstate Hwy 35 Building 7, Suite 700, Austin, TX 78753) where you can visit him and our other available cats!

Story
Lil D is a very sweet girl but likes to do her own thing. Loves to play with toys and other cats. Her meow is almost non existent, to get your attention she will softly touch you with her paw. Her and her siblings have been with me since they were born but its about time for them to find their forever homes. As much as id love to keep her and she'd love to stay, i cant afford it and my home is to small. She would do good in a home that already has a cat or kitten.

We’ve had Penelope since she was 5 months old. She is the sweetest little kitty and loves to play especially with her blue/green feathers. Penny also loves to sit on the patio and watch the birds and life go by, she also has the cutest meow it’s so soft and gentle. Penny has these gorgeous orange/amber eyes, she’s truly an amazing little kitty! She does have to be the only pet in the home but other than that she’s very loving and loves playtime and then take long naps after.

I found Pumpkin at a Girl Scout camp. She was about nine months old at the time. I need to rehome her due to an upcoming divorce and greatly reduced income. She is now ten years old. She loves to be friends with other animals. She looks disappointed if another cat or dog does not want to lay next to her. I think she will be good as an only cat too. She loves laps. She was very overweight at one time. She lost weight. She is fed twice a day. Other than being a little overweight, she has no health issues.

Story
We adopted Leo in July 2016 when he was 3 months old. He gets along great with familes, other cats & dogs. He has always been somewhat skitish but will warm up once he trusts you. He has never been a threat. We have 4 other cats & a dog. Leo has started to demonstrate his presence by marking spots around the house. Because we have so many animals, we believe that this is his way of competing with the other cats. Leo's behavior is not uncommon, especially in a household with multiple pets. Marking territory can be a sign of stress or a way for a cat to assert their presence among other animals. He is neutered. Unfortunaletly with kids in the house and the fact that we dont want the other male cats in the house to pick on this up this trait, we have decided that the best option is to try to rehome Leo.

These pups are in Austin, Texas too!

Story
Hi I’m Wish,  You can wish upon the star on my chest or all the little white ones sprinkled in my fur.  In new places, I can be a little shy, but after I get use to my surroundings, I become very outgoing and friendly even with strangers.  I love my belly rubbed and crutches on my head and back.  I’m friendly and I just haaaave to have my face right next to your face.  I really love to sleep in your pillow with you a night.  My only wish is to be yours. Unfortunately, my mom and her disabled daughter could no longer afford our home.  Her daughter was able to move into her grandparents’ home, but the rest of us have been living in her car for a long time.  She is in a better place now, but could only keep 2 of the 10 cats.  She has chosen to keep my more shy and less adoptable siblings, hoping that I can go to a good family.  I have been without a home for 6ms; however, I would love to be in a home with you. ##2044345##

Story
We rescued Pickles and his sister (Sprinkles) last May, after they were dumped on a rural county road. Pickles is a big personality and a hit with the neighborhood kids, but has caused some issues with our neighbors that do not care for cats. Unfortunately, we had an incident recently where Pickles nipped a neighbor. Pickles is a year and a half neutered male, good with kids, good with other pets, and very friendly. Our cats stay in the garage and outdoors during the day, but I am unable to make them indoor cats due to allergies in the family. We have tried for several months to resolve the issues that Pickles has caused with our neighbors, but now the best course is to find him a new loving home. Any help would be appreciated!
