Quincy ( we kept the name) is a love!  He follows everyone around, is very playful and a very gregarious and happy cat.Kataroo now Iris  is a bit more camera shy than her male companion Quincy but coming out of her shell little by little.

Little Bear aka Ziggy Tom Update!!!

  “Little Bear” has been re-named “Ziggy Tom” (my daughter came up with Ziggy and my 5 year old son also wanted some part of the naming process thus the middle name Tom). He has been a great addition to our family and has provided much love and humor so far. As far as eating,he has no problem in this area as he has a hearty appetite. The whole family just loves him and we are so happy to have found him on your website.  Everyone was very helpful and friendly at the shelter. Overall, our adoption was a wonderful experience. We included some pictures so you can see how well he has adjusted to our family and his new kitty friend “Pippa”. Thank you again, The Duursema Family 

Bella update!

Hi, Just wanted to let you know that Bella is adjusting fine. She hid for the weekend but then quickly became playful and outgoing. Our other cat is a bit wary but warming up. Attached are some pix of them together, and a few of Bella playing and checking out the birds through the window. We’re happy to have her in our family! Best regards,Celine

Zizi & Ziza – A Success Story!!

We love our kitties!!  We are soooo glad that we decided to adopt the pair.  They have wonderful personalities and we love watching how they each have their own unique traits.  Everyone in the family loves the cats, but my daughter has a special closeness with them and spends a large amount of her time at home with them.  (she is the one who begged for cats)       Zizi initially hid under furniture for a little under a week.  She came out to eat and use the litter box when we weren’t home or at night.  I could hear her running around after we went to bed.  Once she was here a week she started coming out to see us more and more.  Now she is right there to greet us when we get home, when we wake up, or even when we get up from sitting down.  She is playful and loves to be petted.  She likes to sleep under one of our beds at night.       We changed Ziza’s name to Zella.  She was much more timid at first.  She hid under a chair for almost a month.  One day we came home and when we were outside we saw her sitting in the kitchen window so I knew she was exploring when we weren’t there.  I encouraged the kids to leave her alone for awhile so she could get used to the settings.  Eventually we started bringing her canned food and giving it to her under the chair so that she could associate us with something good.  That seemed to help and eventually my daughter was able to coax her out from under the chair to be petted.  She initially only came out when only one person was in the room and she would run and hide if anyone else came.  Gradually she got more used to the family and now she is always near one of us!!  She loves to sit on the furniture with us and she sleeps on the bed with us.  Both cats are curious, but she is definitely the most curious!       When it gets dark outside the cats like to stand near the sliding glass doors and watch moths that come to the window.  Sometimes they like to jump up to try to catch them.  They don’t seem to notice that they are on the other side of the glass!  It’s very cute!       Zizi had an upset stomach off and on when she first came.  She is now on Purina Pro Plan dry food and Science Diet moist food and she hasn’t had any issues since then.       I wanted to get some good pictures to send you but it has been really hard!  The cats are just like my kids were when they were babies, as soon as I go to get the camera they get up from what they were doing or they move!!       Thanks again for helping us to choose kitties that would be a good match for our family!  We definitely are thankful that we have them!  🙂    Jennifer, Kaiya, and Mark

Carly aka Inga Update!!

Here are some pictures of Carley with our son Nick. We adopted Carley from you on February 23rd of this year. They became best friends and love being together. Although she thinks she is part dog and even responds to “its time for bed” she is a picture perfect kitty.   We are so happy to have her as part of our family, thank you for allowing us to adopt her! She also gets along very well with her big Chocolate Lab brother, Beckett.  Thanks Again,   The Hale Family

Update on Luna(Cayenne) and Mojo (Scamper)!!!

We have had Mojo (Scamper) and Luna (Cayenne) for a little over a year now.  They are both doing well.  Mojo has mellowed a bit (If you don’t count his “relationship” with our fleece blanket ) and Luna has gotten a little more outgoing.  The two of them adore each other and share a mutual dislike of our dog, though the cats and the dog have reached a peace agreement of some sort.  Mojo recently won the People Magazine’s “cutest pet on twitter” for April 9th.  The link is here: http://www.peoplepets.com/people/pets/gallery/0,,20690969_21308036,00.html#21308036.    We love them and are so glad we made them part of our family.  I am attaching a few recent pictures and a video link of them together.  Hope you enjoy them.Susan Mahlerhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vC9zcX59LBs

Snowflake aka Ross Update

I apologize for getting back to you so late regarding your phone call inquiry as to how Ross is doing.  We adopted him back at the end of November.  He has brought pure joy to our family!  His new name is Snowflake, for reasons that are obvious, as his beautiful white coat reminds the children of new-fallen snow.  We all just adore him and he is thriving!  He eats well, sleeps at the foot of our bed (as well as naps often during the day).  He loves to play, is amazingly receptive to new children that come to the house for playdates, and he is very loved.  He is very nimble and coordinated – quite an athlete, really, when he bats a ball around or jumps in the air!  We are so happy to have  him in our family.  I am attaching a few photos of him – we have several more that are on my husband’s iphone, and I had been waiting for him to forward them to my email to send with a note, but I didn’t want to wait any longer to write, so here are just a few.  Best wishes to you and thank you for a wonderful experience in adopting Snowy!  Best, Lynda Stone/Andy Zelman
