November 6, 2013--Mai Thai continues to do well in her new home. She has completely adjusted to life with the resident kitties and she loves to be brushed and petted. She can be found most of the time hanging out on her Dad's work desk and if he should leave the house, she lays near the front door waiting for him to come home. She loves her Mommy but is definitely a Daddy's girl.
April 20, 2013--"Just wanted to let you know that Mai Thai is doing very well. She's coming out of her shell and is now roaming the house freely with all the other cats. They all get along really well, after an adjustment period. Mai Thai likes to play with our younger cat Bernie and sometimes she whips his butt!!! LOL
For the first week we had her confined to the master bedroom, master bath, and my husband's office. She has now decided that his office is now HER room. When he is in there working, she spends a lot of time snoozing on a blanket on the corner of his desk, looking outside the window. She just loves watching the squirrels. And for some reason, she still likes to be fed in his office, as opposed to being fed in the kitchen with the other cats. So of course, we indulge her and do whatever she wants! In the evenings she likes to sit in the dining room in front of the wood pellet stove. She is very happy here and we love having her here."
March 17, 2013--"Mai Thai is doing really well. She's one of the gang and has totally blended in now. She's found her comfortable places to lay and she loves attention. I don't have to worry about her at all. She's a great kitty and we love her dearly."
March 9, 2013--Update from Mai Thai's new Mom-"Just wanted to let you know that Mai Thai is doing great!! Most of the week we kept her in her various rooms of the house and let the other cats peek at her through the door. Then we let her out to explore the larger rooms of the house for short periods of time. The other cats were jealous, but not aggressive. Thursday and Friday nights we had kitty social hour with the laser light. A fun time was had by all and they forgot about each other as they were playing. Today she is still exploring the house with us only half paying attention to her. Some of the cats are getting more sociable with her or at least not staring at her full time. I'm sure by next week they will all be going about their own business as usual."~JennF
March 3, 2013--Part 2--Mai Thai has arrived at her new home. "She's doing good in her room. She ate almost a whole can of Fancy Feast but I wanted to go slowly with the food since I thought she might be slightly nauseated from the car ride. But she's doing good. Walking around the bathroom looking in every corner like she owns the place already. She doesn't seem like she wants to hide in a corner like I've seen other cats do. But we will give her some time to relax now. I put her mats down for her and brushed her a little bit. She very much likes being petted and doesn't seem afraid."
March 3, 2013--Mai Thai is on her way to her furever home. The car ride was very stressful for her but soon she will have her very own room to feel safe in.
February 13, 2013--Mai Thai was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 3. She went into remission for two years but in March 2008 was put back on insulin and is currently receiving 3units of Lantus twice a day. She is eating two cans of Fancy Feast tuna or chicken in gravy and gets dry food throughout the day. She does not care for the diabetic kitty food.
Mai Thai is front declawed and spayed. She loves windows and porches but is an indoor-only cat. She likes people but is not fond of small children, she will jump high enough to get away from them. She loves to play and will follow you around. She is not a lap cat but she loves to be brushed and petted. She is not a cuddler but will sleep at the foot of your bed. She is extremely lovable and quite a night talker.
Her current owner rescued her in 2004. Her owner got married in 2009 and her husband is not fond of Mai Thai. In 2010 when they started a family, Mai Thai went to live with her owner's parents. It was supposed to be a temporary solution until the babies were born and Mai Thai was supposed to return home but now the husband does not want her back and is keeping her in the basement.
