Jonny Cakes

Jonny Cakes is doing quite well already even though it has been less than a week since he was adopted. He is adapting well to my husband and I and the piggies and we are taking it slow with introducing him to our older cat. It feels so good to see how happy he is and how comfortable he is in his new home. He has a really great personality! 


Misty is doing great. She’s eating, she’s very social, not shy, very very happy, and most of all she is loving. 

Italics (a.k.a Mario)

“Mario”, the 6 month old tabby who was adopted in early December, is now a sweet, spoiled little “brat cat”. Mario was renamed Italics, since I’m an author, and he’s my apprentice writer cat. (Job description: sitting on my desk and trying to KEEP me from writing. He does it well, he’s almost ready for a promotion!) He is a fuzzy nuisance, gets into everything, wedges his tiny body into cracks known only by dust bunnies, but he has that sweet little face and loud purr that makes him instantly forgiven. It’s a full house here- an 11 yo cat, a giant dog, two little kids, and a bunch of fish tanks, and Italics fits in well in our big family. He keeps trying to get our senior cat to play with him, but only sometimes succeeds. So, “Mario” sends his love to all those who loved him and hopes all his friends at the shelter find homes soon.


Hemingway is settling into his new home.  His first afternoon home, he felt comfortable enough falling asleep while I was on the bed with him! He also seems to relish playtime and mealtime. He’s even tried extending a literal (& figurative) paw under the door at his future feline brother. Hemingway hasn’t meowed-he purrs and hums!

Max (a.k.a. Rafi)

Rafi is now called Max (for Maximus because he’s massive), and he responds to the name. He’s so perfect and is such a sweet love.  He’s already comfortable  in his new home and didn’t make a peep on the ride home. Actually, he seemed to enjoy the car ride! Fun fact about Max: he is able to open doors while standing on his hind legs like a human. We will be installing some new sliding locks, as he has opened the door to the coat closet, linen closet, front entry way, and the office so far.
