Hello, my name is Zira. Once upon a time I was a street kitty in San Antonio, and had 5 sweet kittens. My babies were only a few days old when a dog marked all of us for its next conquest. I was doing my best fending it off when a very nice person scooped the 6 of us up. That's when we found our way to ASR and the loving people there. We arrived in early April, gosh 5 months ago now; and all of my babies have gone to their forever homes. At the time, I wasn't very sure of these new faces who were helping me take care of my babies and this whole living inside thing was a little confusing. Needless to say I love being inside; I don't get wet or hungry, hot or thirsty and I don't have to find a safe spot at night to sleep. I get all the wet and dry food I could want, lots of water, treats, a litter box and a soft cozy place to sleep.
Foster mom even taught me how to play with this thing called a wand toy and boy do I love it, so much that sometimes I run and dive head first into them and hoard them while we play. I also love to get pets and snuggles from foster mom, I'm learning that laps are pretty cool but, am still learning. I love to sit beside her and purr she says nice things to me about being sweet and a good girl; she says I don't have to worry about people trying to hurt me any longer. Wow, does that sound pretty great.
One pesky thing about living on the street is that I am FIV+, it isn't a bad thing I can still live with humans and have no issues (foster mom included a link at the bottom), I just need regular vet checkups and a little extra TLC, if I get sick. Foster mom said that all 5 of my babies tested FIV- at 6.5 weeks old which is pretty unusual if I was truly FIV+, but will need to get another test to be sure.
Would you consider letting me come home with you and get the pampering that I would love?

Austin Siamese Rescue
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!

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.
