Yes, I'm a Siamese!

Yes, I am a Siamese no matter what you think! I'm a torti-point Siamese, and I don't want to hear any comments about my "funny-looking" face! Okay, I have spots on my face - they're called "points" by the way. And by the way - my coat is the prettiest here! It looks and feels like sable.
I have to tell you something. I don't like Armand. He's bossy, just like Tia said, but he's not nice to me. I stay away from him. He's always struttin' around like he's some king or something. He needs to go on a diet, that's what he needs! You can tell he's had one too many pudding cups!
Now, Tia, she's all right. But my best buddy is Jackson! He loves to play, and we have so much fun. I'm so glad those babies are gone - I'm much too young and beautiful to be saddled with a family. They were so messy! Whew! I don't think I'm cut out for motherhood, so it's a good thing I'll never have to worry about that again. I'm tired of boys anyway. My mama was right - they only want one thing, and then they're gone! I noticed I was the only one doing the feeding and the cleaning. HE was nowhere to be found! I'm telling all you girls right now - stay away from the boys! They say all the right things, but they don't mean it!
Gotta go. It's time for a little snack and a nap. Life is tough around here, but I think it's going to get tougher. There's someone new in the bathroom and who knows who it is, but in the front room are aliens! I'm not sure what they are, but they scare me. Let's stop talking about them because, well just because. I'm outta here! Come see me soon!

Hi, I'm Tia!

Well, hello there! I'm Tia, and yes, I am gorgeous. With my long, soft fur and topaz eyes, I have got it going on! None of that skinny look for me! I'm looking good, good, good - all 14 pounds! No, I AM NOT fat! I'm fluffy and voluptuous! I'm good for cuddling and snuggling, and don't let anybody tell you that short-haired cats are best. You can use me as a pillow, and I'll listen to your secrets and share your dreams.
Armand, as I'm sure you've figured out, is bossy and a snob. He thinks just because he's the biggest cat here, he's in charge. In charge of what, I'd like to know? Not me! I'm in charge of me! And he's not quick enough to catch Jax. Liza just ignores him, and that makes him mad. But Armand is really a good brother. He took care of me when we first got here and made me feel like everything was going to be okay. He was right, but don't tell him. You know how men are - they like to think they know everything!
Oh my gosh! Have you SEEN those aliens? They got out the other night, and we all ran! Except Jax, of course, because he LET them out! I just don't know what to think about those things.
These Mom People need to do something. AND, there's someone new in the bathroom. I hope it's a new man! We need some more guys around here. They all left, and yes, I'm glad they found forever homes, but I'm a little lonely. Maybe somebody will come and take me home. I'm working on standing on my hind legs to give face rubs. That'll make someone want me. I just gotta keep practicing!

I Am Armand!

Hello ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce myself. I am Armand! I feel I must tell you that being in charge of these sometimes unruly felines is a job that only I can do. When I arrived, things were in disarray, but I am working diligently to bring order and dignity to this place. It is true that I arrived in a somewhat disheveled condition: wet fur, dirty, and scared. There was this big storm that Tia and I were subjected to, and when we arrived, we were less than perfect. But now, just look at my soft gray fur; my gorgeous green eyes will melt your heart; and most of all, I have so much love to give.
I feel that surely someone out there will look at me and see what I see everyday when I look in the mirror - I am perfect! I will look perfect on your bed, at your feet, in the window sill, and at the food bowl. Tia, my sister, comes close to me in perfection, but alas, she is not quite there yet. I am turning the computer over to her since I can see that Jax is being disruptive and must be counseled. Dashing madly about the house is creating havoc! And now look! He's trying to let the aliens out! I must go! Remember, if you too adore perfection, we need to talk!

Liza Gets the First Turn

Hello everybody! I just never thought I would get to tell my story, but finally, here I am. Oh my gosh! I am truly lucky to be here! My time was up and things were looking grim, but being a very good kitty saved my life! I've been here for about 3 months, and everybody tells me someone will come along and know that I am just the perfect cat, and then Poof! I'll be gone and have my own home. That's what I dream about at night.
Piper, my best friend, went to her new home this week, and I'm so happy for her. She never believed anybody would give a blind cat a second chance, but look what happened. Lauren and Steve fell in love with her, and now she's first in somebody's heart. Wow, surely that can happen for me! Okay, okay, I'm turning the computer over to Armand (he's so bossy).
Remember, I'm Liza, and I can melt your heart. Send me a note, and I'll get back to you.
Stop it, Armand. I'm getting off!

Time to Get Going Again - Lots to Tell

Okay, okay, I've been gone for awhile, but it IS kitten season, and like everybody, we've been scrambling to save what we can. AND, let's not forget the adults - there are so many out there that are truly "dying" for homes. Some familiar faces are gone - to wonderful homes with caring people who support rescue! We salute them for sure!

We have been so busy that the cats have gotten mad at me for not telling their story, so I'm going to try to do better. They have so much to say, and they want people to know about them, but before I let them have the keyboard, let me just say that we are in need of volunteers. If you are interested in donating a couple of hours a week, we would really appreciate it. We need people who can clean and play with the cats. Cleaning is not fun - but the cats are great!
If you find that you can donate some time on a regular basis, please contact us at
Now, I'm turning it over to the cats....Everybody can't have a turn today, so stay tuned!
