  1. There's something special about a tuxie - and that goes double for these two! I am sure they are going to find a wonderful forever home - together, I hope!

  5. A quick question for you (oh, wise and experienced kitty queen)- I would like to adopt a Siamese cat, but I read that the breed tend to be more of the shy, timid personality. From your experience, would you generally agree? I have two Tabbies who are energetic, talkative, and super social, and am looking for another cat to fit these qualities (but currently swooning for a Siamese).

    Any tidbit of advice would help greatly.

  6. Jennie,, we've had just a couple of siamese, so it's hard for me to tell you what's typical for the breed. also, their personalities change as the grow up, so the siamese kitties we've met, i'm betting are completely different as adults. i bet there a lots of folks with siamese experience following the blog,, speak up folks... what do you think?

  7. Jennie! I've had MANY (11) Siamese and mostly-Siamese kitties in my life and every one of them has been a terrific cat. They are, in my vast experience, more like dogs than cats as they are quite social. I love all cats and all dogs, but the Siamese is really something. There are tons of non purebreds (just look at some of Laurie's litters AND AT CHARLENE!) that look just like purebreds that cost no more than an adoption fee. Go for one of those if possible. AND, my Beatrix is a gorgeous grey (my late dad referred to her as "the purple cat") with green/gold eyes, but she's the most Siamese cat I've ever had in shape and personality. Get Laurie to hook us up if you want to see pictures of my two "mostly-Siamese".

    Jennie, do you get the Animal Planet channel? There is a wonderful show called Cats 101 and in each episode they pick about 4 or 5 breeds of cats and tell you everything you need to know about them. Whether they get along with kids, if they're friendly or aloof, medical problems to look for, etc. I looked it up online and found the episode with Siamese cats in it will re-air on April 27. If you get the Animal Planet channel you should definitely check it out.

    Here's a link to that specific episode:

    Also, a link to their main page, which will give you other links to all the episodes. Wonderful show!

  9. there is a siamese rescue group, I have two kids from them at this time. I am their furever homes. Both cats are as advertised, the foster moms didn't pull any punches and having grown up with meezers, I adopted two hard to place girls, one was a biter, she is over that now, and one is very, very shy and I have had her 6 months and she still runs from me. But I knew that when I got her and since I have several other cats I can pet to my hearts content, I am OK with that. And I knew this before I ever even contacted the rescue group. The web site is va.siameserescue.org. The headquarters is in VA,, but it is a nation-wide group. I hope you can find a match!!

  10. hope this isn't a duplicate of my first post. there is a siamese rescue group out of VA, but is nation-wide. I have two kids from them and I knew all about them before I ever met them, the foster mom didn't hide any things that may have scared off a potential rescuer. I knew I was getting to hard to place cats, and why they were still in the system. the web site is va.siameserescue.org. I wish you luck!!

  11. So cute, and it looks like their coat is going to be really sleek and shiny!

  12. I'm impressed at the number of different names you find for the precious babies! Where do you find inspiration?

  13. Thank you everyone! I wasn't expecting so much help, a wonderful surprise!

    Anne Boleyn: I definitely plan on adopting, as we've done so with our loving cats. We currently have a date set on meeting a pair of Siamese siblings, but will let you know how things go.

    Kodiak and Kenai's mom: I don't get cable, but I did go to the link that you provided, and now I'm hooked! I mostly see shows (the meager few in the world of basic cable) regarding dog's up keeping and health, and even less episodes on cats. Thanks, I'm loving this show!

    Anon: It seems like personality wise, it varies between each cat. thanks for sharing your experience with your cats, and I'll check out the website- It's waaay too far from where I am (Seattle, WA) but who can resist an opportunity to browse at adorable kitty photos, right?

    Thank you all!
    Jennie

  14. Carolina - I just added your question to the FAQs on the sidebar... please look for the answer there.

  15. What delightful photos and based on the last one, it is long past time to go to sleep.

    Thanks sweetie for the reminder!

  16. Anne Boleyn -- I have a gray british short hair and my mom calls her the purple cat -- cute.

    for the siamese question: I have a tortie siamese mix and she is very vocal, as are most Siamese and very friendly, she talks my ear off.

  17. See now - that's one reason I LOVE coming here (that would be Reason 46,829). What a grand COMMUNITY! One thing though, Jennie - I agree with all comments about Siamese (my Nym was one character) but: seems to me they can be VERY VOCAL! I'm told most black cats have a Siamese lurking in their background, and my grandkitty Taki is an example. He mumbles, talks, hollers, shouts, sings -- LOUDLY. (OF course my daughter and I find it endearing - mostly - and I love when he talks to me on the phone.) Still, they can be very vocally expressive, those Siamese.

  18. Bless you, Laurie, for taking care of those cuties!

  19. Laurie, thanks so much for the Tux Day, especially the pictures of these two beauties -- they really are gorgeous! Love the whole Lyttelton litter, though. It's a good thing I live in Texas, or I'd be really tempted to go for crazy cat lady status by adopting the whole litter, in addition to my other two babies -- and they would take great umbrage at sharing me with a bunch of little ones! ;-)

  23. I love Pia's little white streak- it's like she had an encounter with a paintbrush!
