Aayla

Aayla is doing amazing! She has come out of her shell and loves her new brother Anakin. I got Aayla on a Saturday and by Monday evening she was amazed at her new home and family, especially her brother. They play all night and all day chasing the squirrels and deer that visit the yard. Since the birds are coming back and we have feeders Aayla chases them throughout the different levels of the house. She extremely smart and learns many tricks from her brother. They sleep and cuddle together and occasionally you may find one without the other. Even though they are 11 years apart in age they are great fit for each other. 

Alayna

Hi, We adopted Alayna from you about a year and a half ago and I wanted to write you a note to let you know how happy we are with her.  She is the sweetest cat.  She loves to snuggle up next to us.  She also is very playful.  Her favorite games are being chased all over the house and chasing bell balls.  You must have had to trim her fur, because it has grown out a lot from when we picked her up and she now almost has a mane like a lion.  I have attached a couple photos so you can see how she is doing.  Thanks again!

Spencer Tracy

Hello, I received your voicemail in regards to Spencer Tracy. Here are a few photos of him. I did keep his name. He is doing fabulous! He is a great cat full of love and I fell in love with him the first day! He loves his new home very much and his mommy too (me) :-). He is very spoiled with lots of hugs and kisses and he enjoys sleeping on top of me and wakes me up every morning by tapping his paw on my face. He is a bundle of joy!! I’m very happy to have found him and able to have adopted him! I wouldn’t trade him for the world! Thank you for following up and I hope you enjoy his photos.

Luna (Stella)

Hello Team at Protectors of Animals! So, I adopted Stella, a 7 year old long-haired black cat.  I love her!  Her new name is Luna, after the Roman Goddess of the Moon.  Luna is so affectionate!  She is also a quiet explorer. She loves to eat Fancy Feast and I also feed her some dry food that I bought at Costco. Luna likes to drink and I have three different water containers for her.  She is also a very conscientious litter box user. She is a lovely cat.  Very friendly.   I am grateful.  Thank you! Juliet

Peanut and Perley (Tyra and Sera)

Formerly Tyra and sera. Growing like weeds. Running and playing like crazy!  We love them and they love us!  My elderly mom passed away two weeks after we got the girls and I have moms eleven year old female we got from poa. They play together. Lots of fun and entertainment!!  Thank you!

Oscar update

I wanted to let you know how Oscar has been doing at our house. He is such a sweet guy, we all love him and are happy to have him as part of our family. He has settled into the master bedroom nicely and definitely thinks of it as his own! His favorite spot is a fleece blanket at the end of our bed- I usually find him snoozing there. He likes the cardboard box the kids decorated & carpeted for him, and he also likes his mouse and a feathered ball toy that we bought for him. (Ironically he could care less about the cat tree and fancy bed I bought him, and I may end up donating them to you all, if you can use them!) He passed his vet check with flying colors, although they did strongly recommend that we help him transition to a wet prescription food for his crystals. I am happy to say that with patience and a careful transition he is now on the wet food (he will only eat the kind with “fillets” in it- none of that mushy stuff for our guy!!) I will say that he is still very cautious- loud noises and quick movements (like 3 children running up the stairs & into the bedroom to say hello) will send him under our bed in no time. We are working on helping him adjust to our sometimes boisterous home, mostly by working with the kids to move more slowly and speak more quietly! He is not a big fan of our dogs, although we have gotten to the point where he will let them come into the room and sniff around without puffing up like a raccoon and hissing. I am very careful to supervise their visits, and usually block the door off with a baby gate so they can all see, but not touch, each other. My two older dogs are not really concerned with him, the 4 year old pup is curious but is also clearly intimidated by the tiger we brought home. 🙂  When I go out during the day and the dogs are confined to their own room downstairs, I leave my door open so Oscar can feel free to explore, however I have never come home to find him anywhere but on his blanket. I am glad he has a space he feels comfortable in.  Every night he comes up on the bed and lays across my chest or snuggles between me and my husband and purrs like crazy, he loves having his head patted, & he comes up to me when I call to him (in my room) and enjoys the kids when they are being quieter and more careful. He is definitely getting attention, care and love! I am planning to keep to our current gentle transition plan in the hopes that some day he may be ready to move around more freely- but please let me know if you have any further suggestions. Thank you for helping us find our new buddy! Best Regards, Sarah Hair

Update: Gretchin

Dear Protectors of Animals Staff, My name is Chelsea Burns, I came into your facility in hopes to find an adult cat, one that we knew their behavior and personality. But as last option, just to show, I was introduced to the 8mth old “Gretchin” and instantly fell in love! Mila is the absolute happiest, fun, exciting family member. Mila has about 4 bird toys that give her a lot of exercise, she actually plays fetch! Now that the weather is nice her true passion is looking out the back porch and listening to the birds. She is an active, curious kitty that offers so much joy and laughter to our household. I wanted a cat for a companion and Mila is EVERYTHING I could ever want in a cat. She follows us around the apartment, even waits outside the shower for me! When we come home, she greets us at the door purring and then goes some place level to us to give nose kisses. My favorite is that she is a lap/chest cat!!  My boyfriend, never been around cats first asked “what is the breathing sound she is making, what’s wrong with her” she was purring! He is now an expert with her and I am very jealous since he is her favorite to sleep on. Thank you for your help especially the lady in the picture who was so incredibly helpful and honest. Just wanted to update you that you gave her a nice home! It is truly a blessing to have her

Oscar Update

Hi Laura,   I saw your POA program on TV last week and it was a wonderful showing of what you volunteers do.  Of course, I am a little prejudice.  Your boys are just adorable.   Oscar had his sixth birthday last week (he was 3 when I adopted him).  He is doing well with no signs of his original diagnosis of kidney problems returning.  He celebrated with family and loved his cake and ice cream.     Above is a pic of Oscar in his new tee shirt that he wore when we attended a 100 year old resident’s birthday party at the nursing home.  The top of the tee reads “The cutest dog on this Earth”. He loves going there and adores all the attention that he gets.  He is a charmer.  I am so blessed that we found each other.    Hope all is going well with you.   Hugs, Sue Pivnick & Oscar

Beautiful Bella Formerly Barbie
