Lucky (a.k.a Loki)

The addition of Lucky now Loki to our family was a bit over a month ago. He has brightened up our home and cuddled his way into our hearts. He is doing well and spends his day playing and getting spoiled by our love. 

Kumari (a.k.a Tasha)

I have renamed Tasha, Kumari which is princess. She was exactly what I was looking for in a forever  friend.  She has many places in the house to explore. When she decides to rest she will find some out of the way place to lay her head or she will sit in front of the glass door and soak up the sun,  She loves to play with all her new toys and uses her scratch box and post often.

Watson

It’s been a week with our dear Watson and it’s going great!!! He has made friends with my puppies, going as far as actually playing with them! He teases them something fierce as well!! He will get cuddly with me on his terms, and I’m good with that! He loves being held and buries his head in my neck when held. He has settled in so nicely, and is such a perfect fit for our family! We love him loads!

Clooney

As soon as we got Clooney home we opened up his carrier and he came out immediately.  He took a quick tour of the living room and then perched himself on a chair.  Our kids were really good about giving him his space. Our two other cats came out to see what was happening.  Bootoo was a little hesitant but Clancy stood up on his hind legs and gave Clooney kisses as to say “I’m so glad that you are here” and Clooney started to purr.I woke up around 3 a.m. and Clooney had come upstairs and was sitting in the doorway of our bedroom. He hopped up on the bed and slept with us for the rest of the night (while Clancy sat on the end of the bed and stared at him.) When I left for work this morning, he was reclining on my bed with the mouse that you sent home in his goody bag.  We plan on slowly introducing Clooney to our dogs in the next few days. He shows no signs of fear when he hears them bark so I think that is a good sign.We are in love with our new boy! 2nd update – Clooney is great!  He has full run of our house but he mostly stays on the second floor. He sleeps every night on the top bunk with our son, Rylan. We introduced him to the dogs last weekend and they didn’t phase him one bit.  He plays hide and go seek with our cairn terrier and he rubs against our german shepherds! He seems to like the dogs a little more than our cats. The cats all get along but he doesn’t play with them like he does with the dogs. He is loving to me if nobody else is around. I am mainly the one who feeds him but he seems to favor my husband Michael and our 9 year old son, Rylan. Clooney sleeps on top of Rylan every night! He was sleeping on his bunk bed when I left for work this morning. He spends a lot of time in the boy’s bedroom. He will tolerate our other son and daughter but he doesn’t seek them out. Our daughter’s feelings were hurt at first because she couldn’t understand why he wouldn’t want to be with her but she knows that every kitty is different and this is just Clooney’s way. 

Butterscotch

Today marks one full week Butterscotch has come home. We have come to call her Boo. If we had to use one word to describe the experience, it would be “awesome”.  She is the most loving creature I have ever come across, whenever she comes into a room, she just has to see you and  she starts talking, she always has a lot to say.  The first two days she stayed in the closet coming out every couple of hours for some pets. I think she was checking to make sure we were still here. She is spending more and more time with us, playing and being a goofball. She has even taken to chasing her own tail!Her favorite spot is sitting on the radiator or bookcase looking out the window talking to anything that crosses her path. She is pure joy.

Louie

I’m currently studying on the floor in Louie‘s room. At first Louie was at a distance, but after a short while he slowly got closer and climbed into the cat bed Jon and I made him. It makes me really happy that he’s comfortable enough already to take a nap with me only a few feet away.

Watson

Watson has been home for a day and I just wanted to share that he’s doing better than I imagined! He’s inspected every inch of the house, and when the dogs bother him too much, he gives a growl and swat with a paw and they back off. He’s not afraid of a thing! He’s even purred while being pet! He seems to be a perfect fit for our family!

Mack

Mack loves his new home and his people. Came right out of the carrier and wanted to explore. He spent the night relaxing on the couch between my parents watching tv with them and jumped right up in bed with them when they went to sleep. He has made himself right at home with them. A big THANK YOU to all the volunteers at POA!!!

Teddy

Teddy is doing amazing, and a month ago he started PURRING. It just warmed my heart. Him and Keishi are good buddies, they look like twins, and I get to pick him up for short periods without him being scared.I just LOVE this boy and happy he loves us too. Keishi is the one with the crooked ear. He was another POA kitty, formerly known as Phoenix

Zoey (formerly known as Kyra)

 Zoey (formerly known as Kyra) has come a long way since the first day she came home. It took just a day to get her to come out from under the bed and come for some pats and play. Of course, she was under the bed most of the time, but as soon as I’d come in and sit on the floor she’d come out to me. When I went to bed at night she would be out and about playing with her toy mouse.  It was less than a week that I opened the bedroom door to let her roam freely. And that is just what she did. She would go use the living room litter box more than the bedroom one. She loves to sit in the living room window all day while I work. Or just curl up and sleep on one of the dining room chairs. And when I’m on the couch watching TV she’ll jump up there with me: Then… 3 nights ago… she leaped up onto the bed and that was the beginning of a whole different world. She found that using my leg as a pillow is a wonderful thing. Every night since, she’s been starting out sleeping on the bed with me. I’ve bought her two beds, one for the floor and one for on my bed but she’ll have none of that… wants to be right on the sheets/blankets. At some point in the night she jumps down and goes about her business, but at least she starts out with me. I think she’s come a long way for having less than two weeks with me.
