Postcards from our furry friends in their furever homes.
Estelle and Getty
All grown up and still in love.
I just wanted to take a moment this holiday season to say thank you for this wonderful dog and all the great work you do year round. I’ve fattened Riley up and he’s got a great life now. He loves the dog park, going for long walks and playing with his toys. We both couldn’t be happier. I hope you both have a wonderful Christmas and all the best in 2021.
Etzel is happily settling in and has my entire family wrapped around his teeny, tiny paw. It’ll be a week or so before we introduce him to his cat siblings, but he’s getting plenty of attention from his new human family. Thank you guys so much. ❤️❤️
Greta Garbo ( AKA Mona)
I wanted to reach out to send pictures of Gretta Garbo (who we ended up renaming Mona). On the first evening, she spent hours straight curled up in my lap. She has spent a LOT of time in my lap since (and likes making biscuits there)! My lap is slightly less popular now that it’s colder and she has a heated pad in her bed, but she still likes snuggling up when I’m sitting and working. She also immediately liked sleeping on our bed and generally likes to make sure she’s keeping an eye on us.
Silver Stream ( AKA Luna)
At Snap2It, I found a sad-eyed doll named Silver Stream. Her sad story broke my heart. She had been a friendly girl that was part of their TNR program. Silver Stream was pregnant when she was brought in. Sadly she gave birth prematurely and all her kittens died. Did I say I was a sucker for a sad story?
After she was medically cleared for adoption and spayed we brought her home in October 2018. Two years later she has doubled her weight from six to twelve pounds! My husband named her Luna and often calls her Luna Lovesfood as a parody of the Harry Potter character Luna Lovegood. She is healthy and happy with her brother Yuki and has her Daddy wrapped around her little paw!
The left photo is the day I adopted him😊, since then he’s grown and gained about 7 pounds (healthy weight! 😉) and has grown a huge fluffy mane that Simba would be proud of 😊.
He’s very much enjoying Harry’s place in our family. Harry is enjoying playing with our other cat and my son’s brought his dog over and they get along famously. Thinking Harry is enjoying having his own dog.
Margo and Voltaire (AKA Una and Dabo Sweeney)
I adopted Una, a seven year old tortie who was in the shelter forever and Dabo Sweeney, the black kitten with a loppy head. They are now named after two of my favorite poets: Margo (for Margaret Atwood) and Voltaire and they have their own Instagram account: @thepoetrycats.
Margo has been doing really well in a home! When I adopted her, she had no hair on her rear end as part of an allergic reaction to fleas and with two months with in a loving home she has a full coat (short on the bottom, but growing)!
I love having my shelter cats – thank you so much!
Belle Bell is the adult adopted from SNAP and the kitten is her new best
Harley and Quinn
Just a really quick note to let you know how well the boys are doing. They are happy and healthy and growing like weeds.
I think they have doubled in size since I brought them home! I am just loving their kitten energy and curiosity, although I’m also having to toddlerproof my house, as their curiosity is endless, and they are into silk flowers and light sockets and lamps, and I come into a room to find statues lying sideways…but it’s all good. They are joyful bundles that play all day, and purr when I touch them, and sleep curled up with each other, lying against me. They are loving and affectionate and happy.
Wanted to give a quick update on John John. He is a very active kitty and keeps us amused. He and our other cat, Max, frequently play together. He has really warmed up to my husband and I and likes to show his love by following us into the kitchen, flopping over at our feet, purring loudly and kneading. Not sure why he chooses the kitchen to do this but he’s 100% consistent ?
He loves sitting in his cat tree by the window and is starting to feel comfortable enough to sit on the couch with us, too. He doesn’t cuddle at night like Max does, but he’s always right outside our bedroom doorway in the mornings and greets us with loud purrs.
He’s gotten used to our dog Falcor, and when Falcor comes over to sniff him, John John merely gives him a dirty look instead of running off.
Thanks for letting us adopt him, he’s brought us tons of entertainment! We love him.
