Subject: I must be nuts!

Hi Everyone!
Saturday I went to a local cat rescue home and adopted a beautiful 16lb. flame 
point siamese boy.  He is 10 years old and FeLV+.  
I have been missing my cuddler, Tucker, so much that I just wanted another 
loveable lap cat kitty.  There were over 200 cats in that home but when I 
picked up Orlando it was all over.  He just snuggled right in.  His previous 
owner passed away in January.  She had a lot of acreage, a couple of barns and 
a shop where she made signs.  She had 17 cats who roamed the place and were 
never let inside or given vet care.  When she passed away her husband brought 
all the cats to this rescue and several were FeLV+.  Ironically, that was about 
the time Buzz was diagnosed and I was still trying to find a home for him.  
When I called this rescue they told me that they had just taken in several 
positives and did not have room.  If someone had told me then that I would be 
taking one of the positives I never would have believed them. 
Anyway, Orlando is a very special sweetheart of a cat.  He is even getting 
along fairly well with the other 5.  Yesterday I had him to the vets and they 
found that he had once had a broken leg that was never taken care of and healed 
wrong. (I knew his back right leg was stiff).  Time will tell if that is 
something to take care of now or not.  They also re-confirmed the FeLV+.  
Anyway I am getting way too long winded.  
Thanks for listening to me ramble,
Sue

To tell the real truth, I don't feel nuts at all, I am just so happy to have 
him!  He is such a gentleman and such an armful! (16#) I have never had a 
siamese before and never heard of flame point siamese.  I can tell that he has 
never had a real home before.  There are things he is afraid of that any cat 
that had had a home would know about.  I can't wait to see what his personality 
is like in 6 months or so when he has had a good chance to settle in.  If I 
have this boy for weeks or years the time will be so worth it because he is so 
very special!

Sue -I adore Siamese - there is something very different about them then any
other cat I've had (I'm sure that people would say that about alot of
different breeds but I really do think Meezers are special!)  We are on
our second (we lost our first one to FeLV - he's basically why we got the
second one) and there are traits that they have both shared, but they have
so much personality it's incredible!!!

Re: I must be nuts!

2008-06-26 Thread Lynne
Marylyn, I am so happy for you.  Wow, I didn't know Siamese got that big.
He's in for a wonderful journey, I can tell.  Our Snowy never had a home,
spent her first 3 years in a cage being neglected.  It took her no time
whatsoever to figure out what cats do when they have the run of the house.
She's so smart, when she comes to bed with me and the flickering of the TV
bugs her, she asks to come under the covers until I turn it off. Every day
is a new adventure for these cats and it is so wonderful to see them love
life.

I pray your boy has a long joyous life.

Siamese are very loyal to their person, I have had a few and they 
are my favorites too.  They pick their person and love them 
unconditionally, my baby Joey always wants to be with me, he always 
wants to be in my lap.  He is a mix and has a squeak for a voice but his 
loyalness and lovingness is all siamese.  He also likes to lick me many 
times a day, he gives kisses all the time.  He is the love of my life 
and very, very affectionate!!

point siamese boy.  He is 10 years old and FeLV+.  
I have been missing my cuddler, Tucker, so much that I just wanted another 
loveable lap cat kitty.  There were over 200 cats in that home but when I 
picked up Orlando it was all over.  He just snuggled right in.  His previous 
owner passed away in January.  She had a lot of acreage, a couple of barns and 
a shop where she made signs.  She had 17 cats who roamed the place and were 
never let inside or given vet care.  When she passed away her husband brought 
all the cats to this rescue and several were FeLV+.  Ironically, that was about 
the time Buzz was diagnosed and I was still trying to find a home for him.  
When I called this rescue they told me that they had just taken in several 
positives and did not have room.  If someone had told me then that I would be 
taking one of the positives I never would have believed them. 
Anyway, Orlando is a very special sweetheart of a cat.  He is even getting 
along fairly well with the other 5.  Yesterday I had him to the vets and they 
found that he had once had a broken leg that was never taken care of and healed 
wrong. (I knew his back right leg was stiff).  Time will tell if that is 
something to take care of now or not.  They also re-confirmed the FeLV+.  
Anyway I am getting way too long winded.  
Thanks for listening to me ramble,
Sue

Congrats!  That's wonderful, Sue.  My personal baby is a flame point  
mix who's over 10 - not FELV, but he used to hang out with 2 of my  
FELV babies who are not gone to the bridge.  So I have a soft heart  
for flame points.

 Hi Everyone!
 Saturday I went to a local cat rescue home and adopted a beautiful  
 16lb. flame point siamese boy.  He is 10 years old and FeLV+.
