About

Please contact Renee (ramallett@me.com) for more information about this pet.Bernie is the nicest guy in town.    He is social and likes all people.   He get along well with other kitties (plays a little rough with smaller kittens, but only because he's still a kitten himself).  He was raised with dogs. 

Bernie came out of a pretty bleak situation --Tons of beautiful kitties and an owner that didn't have a car or enough money for cat food.  He and many others were taken in by ASR.  But, she told me that Bernie was her favorite.   When I went to pick him up, he was in a chair covered in a pile of smaller kittens.    He has been a joy to foster, but he really needs his own home and family to adore him. 

As an added bonus, you will probably the only one among your cat loving friends to have a cat with a snake bite scar on his neck!  Seriously.   He former home was pretty rough -- the owner told me that lots of kitties get bitten by snakes.   We're glad that Bernie doesn't have worry about that anymore.

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.
