Postcards from our furry friends in their furever homes.


Patrick

Just wanted to send you this picture of Patrick… He’s been with me nearly 2.5 years. I think he’s settling in 😊

Thank you for partnering me with my beautiful boy ❤️


Willow and Rabbit

Happy 9th Birthday to these beautiful ladies. Willow & Rabbit. Happy birthday girls. 😻


Reign

Reign came to snap as a very sick 2 week old baby. He was malnourished and severely dehydrated. His first 24 hours in our care were touch and go, he had to receive cpr several times. He also had to be given fluids. Thanks to the support I received from Kyla and other snap volunteers I was able to pull him out of the woods. He is now a happy, silly and sweet member of our family. He is the sweetest kitten and gives just as much love as he receives. He meets me at the door every day when I come home from work, Ready and waiting on snuggles. I have fostered many kittens on my own however after volunteering for Snap2it I know I’m raising better babies because of the support and education we receive. I can’t wait to spend the next 20 years with my sweet Reign he has truly been the ray of sunshine through this pandemic.


Fostering

I fostered a mom & her five 3-day old kittens through SNAP2IT. I don’t know when I’ve had so much fun!!

I was completely captivated by those teeny, tiny angels!! Mom was nervous the first night, but after she saw that she & her babies were safe, she relaxed and would take breaks to sleep with me & purr in sheer bliss. It had been a while since I’d raised a kitten — much less 5! I think I was more nervous than their real mom, lol. SNAP2IT was always there when I had a question.

They guided me through what to expect at which stage. They helped me teach the kittens to transition to real food & helped me pick the right litter for their potty training. They made sure I understood what to expect for their spaying & neutering & how to do their aftercare. They came to my house to make sure they had everything they needed & were well cared for. They also gave them their first shots & de-worming meds at my home. Very professional!! They’re very on top of it!

I absolutely LOVED watching the babies grow up & become ready to find their forever homes. The hardest part, as always, is letting them go. SNAP2IT were very understanding of how hard that was. I had raised them from 3 days to 9 weeks! My little angels!! I stayed with them when they had their first adoption day at Petsmart & felt very comfortable that SNAP2IT would ensure they went to the right homes with new moms or dads that would love & care for them. Their interviewing process is thorough & I appreciate the care & attention they put into matching the right cats to the right home/owner.

Of course, 2 sisters stayed with me!! They are my heart & soul. I’ve had cats for probably 20 years, but never had cats that cuddle with each other. It’s just adorable! It’s also really cool that I raised them from only their third day of life & have all their baby pictures!!

I highly recommend SNAP2IT. This is a group of animal lovers who are dedicated & deeply devoted to animal welfare. If you think you might enjoy fostering a litter of kittens this kitten season— it’s right around the corner—definitely do it. Watching those babies romp & play together was hours of hilarity & tiny hijinks!!! I would definitely do it again!!


Estelle and Getty

All grown up and still in love. 


Riley

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

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!


Outlaw

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 😊.


Harry Potter

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

Belle Bell is the adult adopted from SNAP and the kitten is her new best
friend.


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.


John John

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.
