Adopt Artemis

Female Snowshoe


Please contact Rae ( for more information about this pet.Hello,

My name is Artemis same as the Greek goddess of the hunt and animals.  Wow!  Cool...

I just got here from the Bastrop shelter with my sister Addison and we were scared out of our wits.  We are getting a little more comfortable BUT my sister is doing better than I am.

Foster mom will be keeping us for a week or two more or until we are comfortable being handled and with people but we will be looking for our special forever home the whole time!

Let my foster mom know you might want me as your BFF and then come to meet me!!!

Wow, time flies when you're having fun.  Foster Mom had to be away for 3 months and we did not get much attention while she was gone, but now we're having special 'lessons' in liking people and we're doing quite well.  I am STILL a big scaredy cat, but Foster Mom and Foster Sister are going to work really hard with me during Christmas vacation so we will be ready for our forever homes soon after.  We are both very healthy and beautiful and we are the age shown below here on this page.  We will make great BFF's, why not ask about us and take a chance - you won't be sorry!

UPDATE Jan 16:  We are still VERY skittery and Mom is going to order some Jackson Galaxy flower remedies and we will be moved into large cages so Mom and Sis can work directly with each one of us.  Here's hoping - -
I changed status to sponsorship so people would not be upset that these two are 'not ready' for prime time.  IF you are truly interested and have experience with fearful kitties, please let me know.  Thanks! Rae

UPDATE March 2017: Sometimes we take in kitties that have been psychologically so traumatized that they never accept humans and do not allow physical contact with them. Such is Artemis' story.  She came in with her sister Addison and both were terrified.  I will never know what was done to them but after nearly two years she is still extremely shy.  Her sister has come along to where she rubs up against our legs, alows petting and even being picked up however she's a little tense and doesn't want to be held for long.  I suspect that IF Artemis was with people who understood that you let the kitty come to you and allowed to progress as she needs to without being forced but being enticed she would come along.  Whether or not she'll ever be a lap cat is unknown.  If you would be willing to adopt a kitty who otherwise would not get a home of her own then please offer this pretty girl a forever home. She is great with the other kitties in our home but if you're looking for a lap cat right now Artemis is not the cat for you. She has no health issues and is up to date on vaccinations, is spayed and microchipped. I am willing to foster Artemis for the rest of her life, however it would be greatly beneficial to Artemis if she had her own home and more individual attention so she could blossom into the companion I know she can become. I would prefer that Artemis be adopted with Spice 2 since their bond is a strong one. Thanks for your interest. You can contact me directly at if you have additional questions about adopting or fostering one or both of these kitties.

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.
