Free to good home - 2 Sealpoints

Hi All

Someone at my office sent this email to me knowing I help out with any animals I can. Now this email was sent to me on the 16th of June and I have not contacted the person that wants to give up these 2 beauties but I have the phone number if there is an interested party. I honestly dont know if they have found homes yet or not..if your interested you can pm me. Here they are:

We have to put Mimi and Toulouse up for adoption. They are two sealpoints from the same litter and are declawed, fixed indoor cats with all of their shots up to date. They are lap cats and are the most laid back cats we have ever had. They are 4 years old and great with kids. Unfortunately, some of our family members have developed allergies.

I hear you Chico...I always thought this was one of the better breeds to have for allergies..mind you they seem to have had a good home from the pics....but again pets are soooo disposable to some people right.

aww :( thats really sad. How could you just give up your companions after 4 years!?
too bad my mom already has 2 Siamese cats that she ADORES... I'm pretty sure my dad wouldn't be too keen on the idea of 4 vocal kitties!

Wow, they are gorgeous! I've always loved Seal Point Siamese. I wish I could take them. Hopefully they've found a good um "allergy" free home.

Oy, can't people come up with something better than the allergy excuse? Why not just say the truth. They've become allergic to caring for their cats.:frustrated:

Oh - they are just beautiful !


As for the allergies, I have to say, I do understand that one - though I'm certain it's used as an 'out' more often than not.

Around most new animals in a small space (indoors otherwise), and my eyes swell up, tear up, I begin to wheeze as my airways constrict, and I get covered in hives. It's completely and utterly horrible, and if I didn't have my salbutamol on hand, it could be dangerous as well as just miserable.

Thankfully, *my* body seems to lessen in it's reactions in time, but it happens on an animal by animal basis, unfortunately.

OMG, my husband might kill me and my other Seal Point and three other kitties might not be thrilled but they are welcome here. Have you contacted Siamese rescue? We find good homes for meezers. I can't believe the free part - that's horrible!

CyberKitten
June 24th, 2008, 09:25 PM
And I don't buy the allergy issue either!! I love meezers and they are adorable! I wonder what YY would say - she actually does share, is a wonderful cat - she welcomed every cat I have brought home. Would I have to go to Hamilton to get them - what if I sent my husband? (I just love Siamese, lol)

Winston
June 24th, 2008, 09:31 PM
Cyberkitten I thought of you actually but I really dont know much other than what I posted. There is a phone number available to call. I did not call cause the email was over a week old?? They are certainly beuatiful !! I wish I could take them but that wont happen! :wall:

June 24th, 2008, 09:48 PM
Can you PM me the phone number - I actually have friends who teach at the med school at MacMaster and they could help me if I took them. If they find a good home, fine but I want to make sure they do. I worry about Free to Good Home ads. And thx!

June 24th, 2008, 10:17 PM
:fingerscr you can still get them Cyberkitten. That would be amazing.
For the record - I don't buy the "allergy" excuse either. My kids had a siamese mix growing up. They all suffered from allergies but we dealt with them. It was more seasonal than cat. Now they all have one, two of them are about to have two!

Winston - in case no one has told you lately - YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!! for all of your help and dedication to ALL animals!!!

C-K,it would be great if they could go to the Siamese rescue,hopefully they are no already gone:fingerscr
My sons landlord has 3 Sealpoints+a longhaired beauty(ca)one being almost 20yrs old.
and I agree with 14+ you are wonderful!!

Winston
June 25th, 2008, 01:04 PM
Cyberkitten..these 2 beauties are still available. I thought I would call to make sure that they are rather than having to make other people call...So I spoke to the owner and he said they are heartbroken but they have no choice. They have a newborn and they also take care of one of their nephews and it is the nephew who is extremely allergic and if he comes to visit or stay with them it means a rush to the doctors office almost immediately. I mentioned that I was surprised because the brees is not really known for that and he said the boy was a preemie and has had some difficulties so I dont really know.

Regardless he sounded very truthful and also very upset to have to part with them but he wants to be absolutely sure they get a good home! I mentioned I would be concerned about offering them free and he said he wants a good home and that its not about the money!

SO GO FOR CYBERKITTEN!!! I have pm'd the number for you! Keep us posted!

I think Siamese cats are so unique looking. I almost adopted one not long ago. Our computer guy had a neighbor who found a Snowshoe Siamese. I'd never seen one but just fell head over heals. It turns out he found a home for him a couple of days after he'd told me about the cat.

There is just something so magical about Siamese cats to me.

Let me tell you and I'm sure anyone who's owned a Siamese will agree. They can have a very distinct LOUD meow. Tend to be very talkative. Not all, but it is a common trait.

I have the best of both worlds.....my Ziggy (siamese cross) looks like the one on the left but has a normal cat's meow. He was the only one in the litter that looked siamese.....the rest were black/white, calico and one white with a few orange markings.

Hi, here is my short update- have tried to contact (with number) but either busy or no reply (I have it seems bad timing). I did give Winston my cell no. (which I almost NEVER give to anyone but am getting somewhat frantic here) so cross your fingers!! And send some vibes for the kitties!

Thanks!! I think I just miss him or something. Sigh! However, I am ever hopeful! If I cannot adopt them, I WILL find them a good home- with Siamese Rescue's help - the group has such great resources to assess homes and no cat goes to a home without a vet check, help if needed and lots of care and investigation! )ie, no cats allowed outside, no declawing. lots of rules that are helpful to cats)

CyberKitten
June 30th, 2008, 04:50 PM
Hi there,

Thx for all your help Cindy! I did finally get through - to a machine and left many numbers but no response. I did mention I was from Nova Scotia so perhaps they are concerned about the distance? I emphasized this was not an impediment for me and I would either get there myself or have help, probably the latter. The fact is tho it would be almost impossible for me to get there but I did not want to scare them right away - is it possible they want to adopt them to someone from closer to home?

I too am incredulous no one has snapped up these beauties and even if we cannot take them forever (tho I really want to but I have to be realistic and consider whether six cats is doable for us) , I do know so many in Siamese rescue who would give them superb homes, equal to mine or close anyway, lol

So, I await his call and will also try again.

Thanks everyone for the vibes and W for the help!!!!! It means a lot.

Had to add- I also have very close relatives in Niagara Falls who can also help. One of them runs the casino hotel and also have friends in Toronto. And a cousin there too who has a house and I am sure would care for them until I got there (His sister is the nurse who works for the vet and he loves cats!)

I would not have imagined this could be so difficult but just ,maybe they are debating amg themselves whether they want their babies to go out of province??? One never knows.

Winston
June 30th, 2008, 04:57 PM
Cyberkitten I think he will call you back! This is the long weekend and maybe they are busy! I did mention you were from down east and he did not say anything...I also mentioned that you had friends in the area to assist with transportation..he mentioned to me that they have there own traveling crates too!

The origional email came from someone within the area police dept and it has been carefully distributed from what I understand! Thats one of the reasons I called the person last week was to see if they were still up for adoption so that he doesnt have his phone number plasted all over the net!

We can post a thread for transportation if needed and I am sure you will get lots of help!

Heck CK i know you just had a honeymoon but summers here! could you come to Hamilton for vacation?? Let me know if I can help?

Growler I only made the initial call on my return to work which was over a week before I called and the email went out....All I wanted to do was confirm they were available before giving out his phone number..you know so that a million people arent calling you! he returned my call same day...I inquired and told him I knew someone interested in them and that they would call him personally...thats it really...I am thinking its just timing here! CK is busy and I am sure they are too! its the long weekend! I hope we here something once everyone returns to work!

CK knows too that I would be happy to help her out..I just cant really bring them home..and with the distance they need to travel CK has to make some plans...so its wait and see...
