Hi, We now call Orange, Julius or, Jules. He is doing well settling in nicely. He’s definitely playful and friendly a bit skittish, but slowly getting over that. -Cathy
Hello Mary and Shelter Friends, Skittles is all settled and doing amazing! She loves to play and loves to follow us all around the house. Her favorite thing of all is to nudge small items off the table and countertop. We are so grateful to have her. -Maureen
Clifford (who we have renamed Percy), is doing great! He is very curious, playful & cuddly. He likes to keep one of us in view when he's awake, but when he's ready to sleep he looks for Finn. Finn has adjusted to having Percy much faster then we expected! The first couple of days Finn wasn't happy, but by the third day he would let Percy approach him & by the fifth day they were playing & sleeping together. He's a wonderful kitten. Krystal
Mimi is doing very well in our home. I really think she likes it here. You're right in that she doesn't really approach you for affection, but she's gradually letting us pet her more – usually when she's sleepy. She likes playtime and especially chasing a ribbon around. We got her a big cat tree and set it up in our living room. She has really taken to it and likes to rest at the top. She also likes to rest in the sun by our patio door. We have a nice bed for her there too. We set up our second bedroom for her at nighttime, where we have her food and water and litterbox. She doesn't drink much water, so we've been adding water to her wet food. Mimi has a good appetite, so she gets her water that way. But still we set out bowls of water for her and change it often. Best regards, Don
Alex and Stewie
They are so sweet and full of fun. Moe (aka Stevie) seems to be the trouble maker, very cuddly and gives kisses. Joe (aka Alex) follows me everywhere I go and loves attention. They are so sweet together from chasing each other or cuddling together. They are full of personality and we have fallen in love. Dorothy & John
I wanted to send you an update about Sapphire. After only a week, she is loving her new home. After only a few days, she has decided it is her place. Not only that, it isn't my bed; it's hers. She is very affectionate and loves to cuddle. In a very short time, I have fallen in love with my little void baby, and I believe I made the correct decision in adopting her. -Neal
Jim is doing really well - he is so playful, energetic and vocal. He has a big cat tree that he really likes.
Yara (formerly Melba) is doing amazing in her new home and has adjusted so well!! Yara spends her days between napping in her tower and playing. Yara is super affectionate and cuddly, even with new family members and friends she just met. Yara is fascinated with her bells and adores her feather string. Yara sleeps at the top of my daughter pillow, either on top of her head or between her shoulder and neck all snuggled up! I believe we made a good choice in picking Yara!! Our family is now complete!! Thank you, Hibak Farah
Hello! I just wanted to provide an update about Tuna. She has warmed up to us very quickly and we fell in love with her playful personality. She loves looking out the window and runs to the door to greet us when we come home. She loves to hang out around us and even sleeps on top of us at night. -Kierran and Julia
Tulip has been slowly adjusting to her new home and is doing quite well. Although initially she would hide from me, she has slowly come out of her shell, and will purr and rub against my legs. She follows me around and meows and sometimes I can give her a quick pat but she isn’t quite ready yet to be picked up, etc. She is now willing to lie on the floor and expose her tummy, which we know is a great compliment from a cat. I think I made a good choice picking her and she has the potential to be a very affectionate cat. -Mary Anne
I wanted to send photos along of Gelato (my kids named him Oliver). I am surprised on how well he transitioned into our home. He is so loving and affectionate. He sleeps on my pillow on my head at night and loves to cuddle. He is extremely active and loves to play. He is already running around the house like he owns it! Best, Kayla
Justin wanted to say hello from Martin. He’s doing great. He has made our family complete. Thank you again! Best, Krystn Gustafson and Family
Skittles is doing very well. She’s getting settled and exploring the house and even helping to catch a ladybug from the bathroom wall! She is a delight and we adore her to pieces already. -Maureen
