Erin wrote, always had a cat growing up, but went without for a few years after my seventeen year old passed away. My husband brought home a cat back in November from friends that had rescued him and that began to stir the kitty feelings again. So, one Sunday afternoon we came by and met two month old Stella. She was an obvious fit with our family in the short time we spent with her, but unfortunately, she developed a severe upper respiratory infection during her spay surgery. The foster care folks took wonderful care of her while she mended; I called everyday to check on her. Stella has been home for almost an entire week now. While our other cat was very cautious of her at first, it was a matter of just two short days before they became inseparable, calling to each other, playing tag, and wrestling like siblings. She is a great help with laundry and loves to snuggle at our necks during the night. We are so glad to have her!
Susan wrote, We love Pearl and so does Matilda our Bassador. Pearl ate, played and fit right in.
Janet wrote, In November 2012, I adopted 2 brothers from a litter of 5 kittens a friend found while on her morning walk. Ajax and Teucer were loving buddies. Ajax and I were both distraught to lose Teucer at the age of 16 months to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Ajax had never ever been without another cat around, so I decided to find him another buddy as soon as possible. Perseus (was called Jaky) was the perfect fit for our family! He's adjusted quite well, and Ajax is thrilled to have another cat to snuggle with and groom. Perseus has fit in so well so quickly, I can't help but think Teucer's spirit is still around and giving us all his blessing.
Michelle wrote, We love our new girl! Her name was Lucy, but since she's of Scottish heritage, we named her Bonnie. She spends the day with me, but when our boys come home, she disappears to play with them! Daddy takes her for a run/walk every night. We start obedience training in one month and can't wait.
Craig wrote, Zena seems happy in her new home and we are very happy she is with us. Zena got a step sister, Cleo, from Houston Humane Society the day after she arrived. They are already having fun together in only one week. Both cleared by the independent vet.
Robin wrote, Zoe has brought such joy to our home. She is a smart, fun puppy to have and we are having a wonderful time watching her grow and teaching her new tricks every day. Our older dog Mocha is not too sure about her youthful energy yet but they are working on developing a long term relationship. We had forgotten what it was like to have such a fun-loving, action-packed puppy in the house was like but we are loving every minute of it!
Ben wrote, Our family had been without a dog for several years, and when we found ObiWan, we could not say no. He was the most adorable puppy and is now a very well behaved, playful companion, and he is great with kids. He loves long walks as much as he loves sleeping in our bed. He really is a perfect dog. He is very smart and learns new commands easily. He has made everyone in the family very happy.
Ashley wrote, My husband and I went on a Sunday to just look around. Kevin mentioned that he saw a dog he thought was cute. We had always said that we were going to get a beagle, but when we got home, Kevin mentioned again that he found a cute puppy. On Monday, he called me after work to tell me that he was going back and wanted to get this puppy. After he spent a little time with her, he decided that she was made for our us. Kevin brought Bailey home 3 days later and we have loved every single minute with her. She has been such a good dog and LOVES being around us as much as possible. I can honestly say that we have fallen in love with Bailey and we are so glad that she is part of our family!

Trinket and Nugget
Sandra wrote, My daughter and I were looking for a buddy for Nugget, who I'd adopted a month earlier when we first saw Trinket. She was a puppy then, but she looked so much like him and was so rambunctious, that we thought they'd be perfect together, and they were play buddies from the get-go. Since then, she's grown up and is almost 2 now. They are still great buddies, and she's a great member of our family.
