Donna wrote, Lexi is the newest addition to our family! She arrived just 2 months after we lost our beloved Bonnie, whom we had adopted from CAP 11 years ago. Losing Bonnie was heart wrenching and we were slow to add a family member as we just weren't ready. We finally decided to visit and low and behold - there was Lexi. In her short time with us she has done so much to lighten our hearts and energize our spirit. She has a forever home with us.
Sarah wrote, My husband and I fell in love with Duncan the moment we laid eyes on him. He has been a great companion for our other dachshund and he is a very loving boy. He immediately made himself at home snuggling up with his humans and his sister. Duncan likes going for walks and giving lots of kisses and cuddles. We are very happy to have him in our family.
Wendy wrote, I brought my husband in to pick a kitten for his birthday. It had to be a red tabby male as we've both had them when growing up and find them to be great characters. He chose Sparrow and we re-named him Haggis (we're from scotland!). After bringing him home the poor thing had a respiratory infection but has now recovered and is tearing round the house, chewing toes and sneaking under the covers to sleep. My 5yr old twins adore him and he plays with them for hours. He is a gorgeous, loving and playful kitten and has settled right in to our family.
Bill wrote, Maggie has adapted "perfectly" to our home and loves playing and sleeping on our back porch. She's a sweet pet and we're so pleased to have her as part of our family.
Rudy and Pamela wrote, She is a precious dog and has already taken control of our hearts. Here is Jenny with her favorite biscuit and her favorite chair with a view of the front yard.
Tanya wrote, It was tough deciding which of the three frisky and beautiful black kittens to adopt. All three were sisters. I immediately was drawn to the two medium hair girls, and it was tough to decide, but I picked the beautiful black girl with the grey mane. I named her Shadow Breeze, because she would follow me around the house like a dog, and she was such a breeze when she whipped through the house playing with her toys. Shadow is such a loving kitty. She is the only cat I have had or known who pets you when you pet her. Shadow will purr, mew when she wants you to keep petting her, then she will flip over, roll around, rub my face with her paws and then rub her face on my face, she will lick me and, here is the shocker, let me rub her belly! She was so cute when I brought her home. I placed her in my office with the glass doors. I was surprised to see her in the middle of the room playing, unlike Milo, the other kitten I adopted who was hiding behind the books in the bookcase in his room. What shocked me more was the loud cries that came from her when I walked past the door. She insisted I open the door and let her out. Then she followed me everywhere around the house. The first week she tried to assert herself as the alpha cat in the house. However, she has settled into her role as the beta cat, or at least she lets Milo think he is the Alpha cat. I love this precious treasure who has come to my home and can't envision life without this breath of fresh air, my sweet Shadow Breeze.
Tanya wrote, I had specific requirements when I decided to add two furries to my home. I wanted kittens, preferably 8-12 weeks old. I wanted a male orange tabby and a female black longhair. I wanted a male kitten that was very vocal and I wanted both kittens to be brave, friendly, people and pet oriented. When I went on 9/14, I didn't find small kittens in the cat room. Instead I found very beautiful adult cats and many juvenile or near juvenile kittens. I walked around the cattery a number of times looking at all of the cats and kittens and I was drawn to Milo's cage. 1st I loved that he had a litter mate in his cage and that he was very playful. When I took him out and visited with him in the private room, he was very inquisitive. He allowed me to pick him up and pet him. He stole my heart. It only took two days for Milo, his name means merciful, to acclimate to my home. The second evening he slept in my bed. Milo is my guard kitty, he inspects everyone who comes to the house. He is keen on ensuring that I am using my human litter box correctly, and he has asserted himself as the alpha cat in the house, though he has done so with kindness, pouncing, and constant chatter. Milo is a joy to be around and I am glad that I adopted this frisky, muscular, playful, loving eight month old kitten. Right now he is in my office with his sister/girlfriend Shadow Breeze looking out the window. They are rubbing shoulders; you would think they were littermates instead of new friends of three weeks.
Neil wrote, We adopted Cinder several weeks ago and she's quickly made herself at home as you can see. She loves cuddling, is learning to walk on a leash, and has great manners and curiosity. Tennis balls are her preferred toys, and she LOVES watching TV (educational only!). What a cutie!
Bonnie wrote, Lexi is adjusting very well to her new home. She has just been with us three weeks but is already part of the family.
Joseph wrote, We adopted Gatsby around 4 months old. He's acclimated very well to his new home. We love him so much. He's the perfect balance to our lifestyle.
