Happy Ending: Sammy

Best Buddies!

Sammy has now been with me for two weeks but it’s felt like so much longer!!! He is doing soooo well at his new home 🙂 He’s a little shy with new people, but will warm up to anyone if they give him some time (and a treat!). Him and our other cat, Chandler, are […]

Happy Ending: Merlin & Matilda (F/K/A Skylar & Sadie)

A magical pair!

The kittens are doing very well and have given me a lot of great cuddles (especially when they are sleepy) and laughs. I ended up renaming them to Merlin and Matilda, and I can confirm they definitely bring more magic into my life! Matilda has recently gotten very into playing fetch with her little mouse […]

Fall In Love With a Black Cat

Black Cat 3

Visit any shelter or rescue group and you’ll almost always find an abundance of black, black & white, or black-plus-another-color cats waiting for their forever homes. Speculations abound as to why this is. It’s science, say some people. The black fur gene is dominant so there are just more black cats than other colors. Others […]

Happy Ending: Timon & Pumba

Hakuna Matata :)

We absolutely love these kittens! They are happy, friendly, and extremely playful. 🙂 Your descriptions of them were spot on – Pumba is definitely the snuggly one. When he’s not playing, he’s on my lap (or near my head). Timon has been the adventurous one but checks in frequently for rubs and head butts. They […]

I wanted to give you the progress report on Leela and Rolo. We have renamed them Athena and Ares and have enjoyed watching them run around. It has been almost two weeks since we brought them home, and they have adjusted to their new home well. They have found hiding nooks in the couch and […]

Happy Ending: Roo (F/K/A Evie)

Roo 3

I just wanted to send some updates on Evie (now named Roo!). She is the absolute sweetest kitten and I love her to pieces! She and my brother’s cat are getting there, they’ve started eating next to each other which is a big step! She is super cuddly and lovable and I am just so […]
