April sez, "Slurp."
0714 April


April was saved by Austin Siamese Rescue from a small shelter in El Campo.  They didn't even have room to put her in a cage and she was being held in a pet taxi.  She didn't have much time and was saved in her final hours by an angel named Donna.

April is very petite and still very young.  Nobody knows for sure exactly how old she is, but she acts like a teenager kitty! She is not shy.  She is an out-and-about kitty.  If you want a kitty that curls up and sleeps all day, that is not April!

April would do well in an active household. 

Won't you make April a part of your family? Fill out an adoption application and you could be hanging out with her in no time!


Sorrel’s Fund

Sorrel’s Fund was created to provide an ongoing means of providing special care for special cats.  Established in May, 2011 with a generous donation from a long-time Siamese lover and rescuer, Paula Weber-Lohmeier, Sorrel’s fund is designed to help Austin Siamese Rescue cats in long-term foster care obtain special medical care that often can’t be covered by the rescue’s adoption donation fees.  ASR’s adoptions fees only cover a small portion of the veterinary cost of testing, spay/neuter and other basic costs required for adoption. 

By contributing to Sorrel’s fund, you can continue the tradition of supporting Siamese Rescue cats in need and recognize a beloved pet, person or group. Your contribution, whether large or small, enables ASR to continue to help cats receive the necessary veterinary care they need over and above the standard vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, micro-chipping, and testing.

Some of the types of care funded through this memorial include:

  • Veterinary Lab Work, Surgery

  • X-rays, Ultrasounds, Specialty care

  • Prescription Drugs for asthma diabetes, thyroid, kidney, and other chronic cat diseases

  • Dental cleanings, extractions (particularly necessary for older cats in rescue)

  • Long-term wound or surgical rehabilitation care

  • Other extraordinary veterinary expenses that exceed the norm

Recognizing your beloved one with a donation is easy through PayPal or a personal check. Donation receipts and memorial notes will be provided to the donor and/or loved ones as requested.  Donations of $50 or more will be recognized on the Sorrel’s fund memorial page of the Austin Siamese Rescue website. For donations above the $100 level, ASR will also post a digital photo of your remembered loved one on our Rainbow Bridge.

About Sorrel

Sorrel 1Adopted from a high-kill shelter as a teenaged kitten just before scheduled euthanasia, Sorrel was a dilute blue-cream tortie Siamese mix with deep blue eyes.  Her mischievous outgoing personality personified “Tortitude.”  Sorrel was sweet and funny, but suffered from underlying medical conditions that may have led to her having been surrendered in the first place:  Asthma, stomatitis, food allergies, and more seriously, cardiopulmonary inflammatory issues that contributed in no small way to her final illness.  While Paula, an experienced owner and cat rescue foster, could afford Sorrel’s care, she realized that other owners/foster parents would not be so fortunate, and cats with Sorrel’s conditions would quickly deplete a rescue’s or future owner’s finances.
