Update Artemis

Artemis is sooo happy and so is our daughter Ella. Yes, we are keeping her name as Artemis!

Update Cosmo AKA Zinnia

Hi,  Just wanted to send you an update on Zinnia, now Cosmo.  She is adjusting to our home fabulously!  As you know, she loves attention and the girls are really enjoying her.  She and the dog are also doing very well.  Cory, our dog, seems happy to have a cat in the house again as she is always wagging her tail when Cosmo is near her.  Cosmo always under my feet and looking for attention but she has started to settle and just sit alone on the couch in the sunshine too.  

Update Nate

Hi Sushama, I wanted to send you a picture of Murphy (aka Nate) in his new home with his new sister.  He is having a blast and is an awesome kitty. Thanks again, Lynn Grissom

Update Sophie (Piper)

Sophia the kitten has been renamed Piper. We just love her to pieces and after a few days of getting to know escape routes from our older cat and two Havanese, Piper now hangs out comfortably with everyone! She knows now that our younger Havanese, who scared her at first with his exuberance, is actually her most reliable playmate (other than our son Griffin of course!).  She is a most wonderful addition to our family.   Please pass our thanks on to the foster mom who provided the opportunity for Piper to spend her first weeks of life in a safe and comfortable environment.  Because of this Piper was able to develop into a confident, curious and loving companion. We are so grateful for the tireless efforts of the people who make up your organization! Warm regards, Val, Joe, Connor and Griffin Sullivan Ember, Zoey, Rio and Piper!

Caprice update

Almost 1.5 years ago i adopted a petrified young cat named Caprice.  She was re named cappy she was so scared and was in such a tight ball in the corner of her cage that she was soaked in condensation from her own breathing.  In your cat room she tried to climb the walls.  And in my arms she just burried her head in my chest amd trembled.  i thought i would send along some photos to show how comfortable she is in her forever home…  Thank you for all that you do!

Alaina update

I just want to give an update on Alaina.  I decided keep the name Alaina.  She has adapted to her new home very well.  She gets along great with Sophie (formally Sola).  Sophie is a little instigator and will follow her around, poking at her until Alaina starts to chase her.  They take turns chasing each other around.  It’s just play.  I’ve not heard any growling or hissing.  Alaina likes to just lay around.  She likes attention, but is not a lap cat.  One thing about her is very strange.  She is not afraid of the vacuum cleaner.  All the other cats I’ve ever had run and hide when the vacuum comes out.  Kevin 

Update Natasha

It’s been almost a year and a half since we adopted Natasha from POA.  Now renamed Aja (pronounced “Asia” – as in the Steely Dan song/LP), she’s very settled and comfortable here.  She’s still skittish with strangers and goes to her safe place in our closet during thunderstorms, but otherwise, she’s healthy and doing great.  We invested in a nearly 6-foot tall cat tree and had expected our other shelter cat, Isis, to perch up at the top, but Aja surprised us by being the one who loves to climb around and explore the higher levels.  Her favorite activities are batting milk bottle rings around the room and then hiding them, watching the world from her favorite window,  watching Daddy play video games on TV, and snuggling with her kitty best friend, Isis.  She’s become quite the character and is much more assertive and vocal now when she wants food, a playmate, or cuddles.  Definitely not the cowering, scared cat who stayed in a corner until called/coaxed like when we first got her.  We went through a period where our other cat was very sick (turned out to be a food allergy) and Aja was very affectionate and groomed Isis when she seemed to be too weak or drowsy to clean herself.  She stayed by her a lot of that time and now, one will always come running if the other one cries, i.e. during thunderstorms or when we have to give one a pill or flea treatment.  They’ve really bonded and Aja seems very happy here.  Sending along some photos of her and one of the two of them together.  Thank you for everything you do.  We’re so glad to have Aja as part of our family. ~~ Michele & Jim

Sophie (Solo) update

I recently received a voice mail asking about Sola.  She is doing fine.  She is now called Sophie.  The first week she stayed under the bed, but since then has become one high energy kitty.  I think she sleeps when I’m not home and then when I get home from work she wakes up she runs from room to room.  Her favorite toy is a wand toy with a fake bird on the end.  She picks it up and drags it around the house when she wants to play.  She’s does follow me around the house, but still doesn’t like to be picked up or sit on my lap.  Just about every night she wakes me up in the middle of the night to either snuggle or play.  I’m thinking of getting her a friend.  Here are a few pictures.

Savannah and Natasha update

Our 2 kittens we adopted from you last Saturday, June 8 are doing wonderful and Bridgette our 9 year old girl is doing great!! They love looking out all the safe, open windows from perches or in window.  They spend the night in the bath room and if we are all out.  During the day they have the run of the house, playing with all their toys, looking out the front low storm door or back french door. Our Grandson Hunter 6 playing with his trains running on battery with kittens watching and keeping him company!!  Hunter loves to set up all kinds of layouts with all the tracks he has, even out and down the hall!  Black and white baby is now Savannah and tiger is now Natasha!!  They visit our vet Friday!
