Adopt Bert

Male American Shorthair


Please contact Stephanie ( for more information about this pet.Bert was found on Christmas Eve. He was living in a storm drain in a neighborhood. We left him some food on the curb and figured he was a feral. We went back each night and Bert started talking and talking to us. By New Years Eve, he was wrapping himself between our feet as we walked. Poor boy had been lost for some time. With all the fireworks around, we decided to take Bert home.

Bert has suprised us! He is litterbox trained, perfect manners, likes other cats, LOVES catnip. We assumed Bert was younger because he runs up and down the hallway. We were told he could be between 6-8. There is NOT a lap Bert does not like. He loves all kinds of company as well.

He is an all around WONDERFUL cat!!

I get emails asking about Bert so want to emphasizie what his ideal home would be like. Bert does NOT know dogs. He is such a sensative cat, I think they would scare him unless it was an older calm dog, familiar with cats. Would probably take time for Bert to adjust to a dog. He would LOVE to have a older cat friend, or a more mellow cat buddy. I think a very active kitten or young cat would be a little much for Bert (I fostered some here over the year and Bert, like all my cats, was not too crazy about the super hyped up ones). Everyone who meets Bert loves him. In particular, my friends who 'are not cat people' as they tell me. They all love Bert.

We hope someone can give Bert the forever home he deserves. If you are looking for a calm, relaxing lap cat, look no further. You found him!!!!

Shelter Description

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!

Adoption Instructions

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.
