About Starburst

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Starburst is an approximately 6 year old flame point siamese. She is a very petite cat and does not seem like she will grow any larger. Starburst spends her days lounging around, chatting, and stretching her back legs (You NEED to see it. It's the cutest thing EVER). She doesn't play often, and has very low energy for a cat. She does not like to be picked up, but she will come to you on her own when it's time to cuddle. She also is still afraid of sitting on laps, but will curl right up next to you or on top of a chair/ couch you are sitting on. She has never once shown an aggressive behavior toward a human being and has not had any bathroom accidents. She does not like other animals, and needs to be the only pet in the home. To understand Starburst better, I feel like it's very important to share what we feel happened in her past. Starburst came to us from a shelter in North Texas. She sat in her foster's bathroom for a month shaking in fear. At the shelter she was found with an abscess on her abdomen with no indication of cause. We have come to believe that she was once a breeding cat that was dumped after no longer being able to have kittens. Due to her aggression towards other animals, shy behavior, and being scared of being picked up this was the best explanation we could think of. Due to the previous trauma we feel she endured, we want to make sure Starburst goes to a home we feel is the absolute best for her. She will do best in  a home without children, other pets, and that is quiet. She would be a perfect cat for a senior citizen, or for someone who just really needs a friend. She is only available for adoption to applicants in Texas. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this foster is not currently accepting home visits. If you would like to meet Starburst via FaceTime or video call, please contact Lillie at or text 361-218-5631. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.

I like it.  I just got here from the Bastrop shelter with my sister Artemis and we were scared out of our wits.  I have gotten a lot more comfortable BUT my sister is still more afraid 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!!!UPDATE: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.  My sister is STILL a big scaredy cat, but Foster Mom and Foster Sister are going to work really hard with her 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 - - UPDATE March 13:  Happy to say that Addison is doing very well.  Still a bit timid, but coming up to be petted and enjoying it.  She's out of a cage and lots of the 'roaming' kitties in the house have been allowed into the room where she is and it's now on to the next step - allowing her to come out of the kitty room and into the normal house if she wants.  I've changed her status to 'available for adoption' and she is ready for a home that is fairly quiet with someone who is willing to be gentle and patient with her.  She's a really SWEET kitty and deserves a chance at a forever home.  She gets along with other kitties, so a home with another buddy would be great.UPDATE September 10, 2016: I am sooo ready for love .  Addison is finally ready fully for a home.  She will take a bit to get used to the new digs, but she's been off with a temp foster for 6 weeks, is back and is asking to be petted, venturing out in the house and has left sister behind in so many ways.  She can be picked up, petted and will most of the time come to you.  Loud or sudden movements still un-nerve her, but in a normal home setting she'll be a great companion.  Addison is very healthy and up to date on vaccinations and is spayed and microchipped!  Won't you consider HER as your new BFF?UPDATE: October 2018:  Hey, I'm back.  Had a little health scare but turns out it was a wrong diagnosis and I'm healthy as can be.  I've been living in foster mom's bedroom and having a lot of fun and attention.  I love to sleep right next to her leg and I love being petted and I even beg to be petted.  I am still a little insecure and it shows when you move fast or try to chase or catch me.  I'm also a bit face shy still although I love it when you scratch and pet my head, just nervous if you try to use two hands at once.  If I'm on the bed and I know you, you can pick me up.  I will be okay for a few minutes but after that I want down.  I have the tiniest little meow, you'd think I was a kitten.  I might be a little bit insecure still BUT once I settle in and get to know you I'll be your BFF and give you back lots of love!New pics coming soon!Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet. show less

They scurried and made arrangements for me to get out of the shelter ASAP so I wouldn't have my babies there.The nice ladies at Comanche, especially Laurie and Kimberly worked quickly and got me to ASR and into a foster home on Tuesday and I had my babies on Thursday!  Talk about the nick of time!I am the proud healthy mother of three little cuties who will be up for adoption in 8-10 weeks time.  I will then need my own forever home and if you would like to have me as a BFF please come to meet me.  I'm a very loving girl and a really good Mom and I purr all the time!5/6/16 UPDATE: Bria has come a very long way and is now ready for a forever home.  She is a silly, bouncy kitty with a bit of 'tude', but she is friendly and ready for more.  She isn't really comfortable with most of the kitties in our home, but plays with Darth as if he was her baby or she was his sister.  She has gotten a lot more comfortable with humans as well.  She will rub up against my legs and allow me to pet her on the head and chest and one or two strokes down her back and then gets excited and sends 'warning' signals.  I think she just gets easily over stimulated, but she can be a bit nippy so she is not a good choice for a family with small children.  She would be great as a companion for an adult home with one other kitty as long as she is allowed plenty of time to acclimate and get used to the other kitty.  I do believe that if Bria has a home of her own where she has more area to roam (right now she stays basically in one big bedroom) she will come completely out of her fear shell and become a really sweet and loving kitty.  Won't you tkae a chance on this girl?  She deserves a place of her own after such a rough start.UPDATE: July 2017 - Bria is definately a good candidate for an adult home with one or even two other kitties.  She is now integrated into the population and managing nicely.  She isn't agressive and will back down from confrontation but sometimes she will defend herself a bit.  She still is a sweet girl but still gets a bit over excited at too much petting. She really needs a quiet home where she can ask for and get the attention and love she deserves.  She'd make a great companion!Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet. show less
