Salina is a truly amazing little girl. She is generous with her enthusiastic head bumps, snuggles and kisses!
Her eyes sparkle with curiosity looking out the window at the birds and squirrels.
She enjoys her own little windowside cat castle where she naps in the sunshine. 
Her eyes sparkle as she leaps from her favorite plastic box to bounce on a toy or jump up onto the book shelf to explore.

We are happy to have this precious little cat join our family.

Winslow is doing fantastic!! His brothers Phantom (great dane) and Nick Nick (kitty) absolutely love him. Introducing Winslow to them went amazingly well, they all just love each other. Winslow is still in to everyone's business!!! We call him "the mayor!!"

Honey, now known as Juniper Honey Bee Russell

My family and I adopted Honey, now known as Juniper Honey Bee Russell, and we have absolutely fallen in love! She is still a bit skittish but is warming up to us and loves to get scratched behind the ears and under her chin. Juniper's four legged siblings love her too, Faith, our dog, loved her from the minute we came in the door with her. Her big brother cat Mr. Professor Mittgonegal, (aka Mittens) took a little longer to come around but is now being a good big brother and enjoying his new playmate! He even shares the dog's bed, which he has claimed as his. Thank you so much for the wonderful work you do rescuing animals! 


Bebe continues to do wonderful.  She is really warming up to us and is quite affectionate. I think she likes her new home.

About two months ago I adopted a two year old cat, Uno. I knew that he was friendly from the moment I met him, but never realized what a companion he would turn into for me. He just loves me so much and constantly has to be with me. He's very affectionate. I love that's he's two because he is still very playful and has a lot of energy just like a kitten! He is very happy in his new home and is constantly purring.

Sky (formerly Hannah)

Sky (formerly Hannah) has settled in nicely. She seems to enjoy her two human sisters and cat brother. Here she is with with her new brother Happy (formerly Matty, also adopted from POA). 

Leah (a.k.a Francis)

Hi there!
My parents have been so busy! We are moving out of our apartment soon into our new house! I have been doing so well. I am very well behaved, although I require lots of attention :) my parents love me very much, and they always tell me how happy they are to have been able to adopt me! My favorite part of the day is snuggling with my dad I also love when mom works from home. I get to play with her papers and hangout with her all day
Love Leah (formerly known as Francis)


It's official , Lani found her furever home



Just wanted to share a picture of some of Elsa's cutest moments at her forever home.
She is adjusting well and is a very sweet girl. She will eat the whole bag of treats given the opportunity...
She likes to follow us from place to place and has cried when one of us goes outside and she can't follow.
Other than that, she is comfortable and at ease most of the time.  We are happy to have found her.

Delilah (a.k.a. Beans)

Delilah, formerly named Beans,  has been with us for just over a month now and absolutely loves her new home. Her favorite thing to do is sit on the perch of her cat condo and watch and talk to the birds. She also loves to snuggle. She is very playful and always full of energy. We have a 5 year old goldendoodle Sampson and they are becoming friends and enjoy spending time with each other.

Just thought you'd like to know that at a bit over two weeks in, Ave is mostly settled! She is currently roaming the house. She even gives us a few little meows to announce when she's entering the room. She comes over if we call her for pets and purrs very loudly. She loves to headbutt our hands and rub on our legs. She hops up onto the couch with us from time to time, as well. Oh, and she LOVES belly rubs!
She's still a bit shy and will leave the room pretty quickly of you make loud noises or move too fast - but she always comes back in a few minutes.
As far as our dog goes, things are going well there too! They aren't exactly best friends yet, but introducing them went very smoothly. They are easily in the same room together with no problems from either of them. Ave is still very curious about Kimber and will stalk her from time to time

Hi!  This is Monte and Maya!  We’re writing to you just after our first birthday.  Maya wanted to type this, but I won the mouse toss.  Besides, her spelling is bad!

We just turned one a few days ago.  New Mommy let us have a tiny little bit of ice cream to celebrate.  Now we consider it our right to have ice cream every night so we beg her for it.  So far it’s only working part of the time – we will be persistent and train her eventually.

New Mommy is pretty nice.  I like her a lot.  Maya is still deciding.  I tried to convince her, but so far she’ll only sniff a finger or a toe, then run away.  You can see her picture where she’s under the chair – she feels safe there.  New Mommy doesn’t try to make her leave – she will come out in her own time.  Maya will come out to play games with New Mommy or get ice cream, and of course at breakfast and supper times when the food is being prepared!  We LOVE food!  We can’t get enough of it, so New Mommy can’t leave any around.  There’s 2 machines that give us dry food twice a day – I’m always hungry way before the machine goes off, so I bug New Mommy pretty loudly to remind her it’s almost time to eat.  She tells me it’s not time yet, but I don’t wear a watch, so what do I know, so I keep reminding her.  I just know what my tummy tells me!  Then New Mommy gives us wet food that is soooo yummy!  Maya and I have gotten pretty big.  I’m 11.5 lbs and Maya is just under 10 lbs.  New Mommy is trying to make sure we don’t get too big!
Oh, I like New Mommy pretty good.  See me on her lap?  I’m pretty comfortable there and spend my time there when I’m not eating.  Or playing with mousies – New Mommy gave us a lot of mousies and a tall tree perch to scratch and sit on and lots of covered beds to nap in.  Of course our favorite place is where we she doesn’t want us to be – the kitchen sink.  New Mommy tells me to get out of the sink every night!  You’d think she’d have learned by now – I’m still training her.

Oh, and she’s taken up something called cro-shay-ing…  I don’t know what it is, but all of a sudden there was a comfy blanket!  See it in the picture with both of us?  There’s lots of yarn around sometimes, but we’re not allowed to play with it.  We snuck some once and threw up pretty bad – now she hides it better.  Too bad – it was fun.  New Mommy tries to distract us from the yarn with the Rainbow Cat Dancer toy – still Maya’s favorite.  I like it, too, but Maya hogs it.  She lays on her back and tries to swat it in the air.

Anyway, we just wanted to write and say thank you for saving us and thank you for New Mommy.  We hope you are doing well and maybe one day we’ll come to visit you!

Monte and Maya

Gato a.k.a. Waldo

Gato has adapted very well to his new home.  He is a perfect companion and addition to our family.

Spice (formerly Spicey)

 Spice, (formerly Spicey), is doing wonderfully. She always has to be in the middle of the action, so even though I'm awake at 3am she's on my lap as I'm writing.

The Fluff, as we usually call her, has become extremely vocal and affectionate with us, but is now a little reserved around guests, which of course makes us feel proud that she has such an obvious preference for us. Her unique little quirks--like rearing on her hind legs for attention, "kissing," nestling against us under the covers in bed, and using an incredible vocabulary--entertain and delight us every day. She is quite the insistent lap cat, and her motor is almost always running, but she can turn on a dime and become surprisingly playful. She is known to race around the house at lightning speed and paw at the window blinds to look outside. Everyone who meets her loves her amazingly soft fur and sweet disposition. She is rather spoiled, and we'll certainly be celebrating her birthday next month.

Writer now called Autumn Sunshine

Writer (renamed Autumn Sunshine!), is doing great. 


It's been just a bit over two years since I brought Bella home to live with me.  Her very favorite activity is curling up on my chest and going to sleep.  Everyone who meets her loves her, and she loves everyone back. Anyone sitting down is considered fair game as far as their lap is concerned.

Rusty (now named Trophy)

 Rusty (now named Trophy) is the most social, affectionate, and feisty cat I've ever owned. He's the perfect cat! You can tell he was raised in an amazing and loving home, he is so trusting and happy. He loves my 5 yr old son. Since he's been here he has adopted another puppy sibling and they are SO cute together.  I think he thinks he's a dog too, and Loves to play fetch! He's better at it than my dog

Francie (previously Coco)

 Francie (previously Coco), she is doing soooooo great and has completely come out of her shell!  She gets along great with Thomas, her new 14 year old brother.

She brings us so much joy and she is such a ham, the personality on her is too darn cute.   She has the tiniest little meows that are so endearing, and has taken to following me around like a little puppy dog.  If we are watching TV and I have to get up, she follows me to whatever business I have to do, the bathroom, the kitchen, and then follows me back downstairs. She is just such a sweetheart and I am so happy and thankful for the funny turn of events that lead us to being in each others lives.

Chantilly now Bella

Chantilly now Bella (not from twilight movie) is adjusting perfectly to her new home. She has all these new toys but her favorite toy is the crumbled up receipt. When shes has had enough pets she uses her paws to push our hand. This morning I woke up to her loud purr in my face. She also likes to lick our blanket, like until it is soaking wet.
