Waiting To Be Adopted | Already
Adopted Cats | Cat Happy Tails | Rainbow
Here are a few more pictures of Spooky &
Shadow...They are a pleasure to have and make
a great team! Yes, they are growing...What
a difference having two kittens instead of
one! I truly believe that having the two kittens
is healthy for pet and owner. Enjoy!
The fur kids are doing great. Everyone is
strong and healthy - Pyro is still odd - doesn't
like anyone to pet him with their hands but
loves you to rub his back with your foot.
I believe him to have autistic tendencies
and really needs a more firm heavy touch...
but we just love him to pieces. Rogue is her
same sweet outgoing self - very, very pretty
cat - soft - wonderful to pet. If I remember
right, Pyro weighs 12 lbs and Rogue, 9.5...
something like that. I have some pics of Rogue
and I think Pyro let Ron catch him with his
cell phone camera. William still asks about
"Sea-mix" (Phoenix) the mommy cat.
I told him she found a happy home and is well
loved and cared for. Pyro (Lover Boy - this
was NOT set up like this - he did it himself,
LOL) and Rogue... I thought I had a better
picture of her - I will have to keep looking...
thought you would enjoy these! Anyway - thanks
for asking. Hope all is well with you.
Hey this is Holly. I hope
you remember me. I had given you information
about my siamese cat that I ad to find a
home for before moving to Arizona. Well,
I am happy/sad to report that I have found
him a home. I dropped him off today and
I wanted to wait till I had done that so
that I was sure I didn't need his information
on your site anymore. I want to thank you
so much for putting his bio up on your web
site and helping me find him a good home.
I can't thank you enough really. I was of
course very sad to see him go, but feel
better knowing that he has a new home and
not some other place or SPCA or something.
So thank you again and I suppose you can
either take his info off of your web site
or put something there that shows he was
found a home. Thank you again.
The cats are adjusting well! It's a long story
as to how we came up with the names, but the
little boy is now called "Paco"
and the mother is "Lucy." Paco loves
to play and little by little is getting more
comfortable with his new home. He lets us
pet him now but is still a bit timid. Lucy
has claimed the space as her own and sleeps
on the bed with us regularly. I keep meaning
to take some pictures to send to you and will
hopefully get to that soon.
HI! I did get some pictures of "Shadow
and Spooky". See attached. They are alot
of fun and their dispositions are great! Also,
I did order and receive the nail clippers
you recommended. At your convenience, please
let me know when you might be able to stop
by and show us how to use them.
How are you doing? Fine Here! Today is Emma's
1st Birthday! We are going to celebrate with
cupcakes and a tea party also some tuna snacks.
(we're not gonna eat them though, haha) She's
still so little to me though. She is actually
sitting with me as I write this to you. She
is the best! She is just so lovable and sweet.
We all love her very much and are so happy
to have given her a home, her home where she
is the "queen" of the house. I could
go on and on about Emma. All those years of
me saying I would never get a cat, not because
I didn't like them, I just never had one growing
up. What was I thinking? Cats bring so much
love to your home, so much love in your heart.
Emma is just a FABULOUS KITTY and she has
really warmed my heart towards cats. Not that
I never not liked cats, I just didn't know
much about them. She knows her name, she comes
when you call her, and she is always there
to greet you. And Butchie (our dog) is just
crazy about her. I just wanted to share that
with you. Oh and I also wanted to tell you
that Bear, my mom's dog, is just fabulous.
What a wonderful dog. It makes you wonder
why people return their animals and say bad
things about them because Bear is nothing
what was told to us at the shelter by what
the old owner said. He is a wonderful addition
to our family also. And we have you to THANK
for our wonderful additions.
Talk to you soon. Wendi
SORRY I HAVE NOT WRITTEN IN A WHILE. BEEN
REAL BUSY GOING TO A LOT OF DRS. APPT.
BUT RILEY IS DOING GREAT, HE REALLY IS THE
MAN OF THE HOUSE AND HE KNOWS IT. I DO NOT
THINK HE COULD BE ANYMORE SPOILED THEN HE
HOPE THIS MESSAGE FINDS ALL IS WELL.
GOD BLESS YOU, SUZANNE & RILEY
THE PIC'S IS FROM WHEN MY FRIEND BRIAN BROUGHT
MY SON IN FROM FLORIDA. HE HAS A HOSPITAL
BED AT HIS HOUSE FOR ME.
Love, Suzanne & Riley
I just got off the phone with Kathryn. She's
so great!. We agreed that I would take Tessie
to the vet to get a complete check-up, bloodwork,
etc to make sure her animals are safe. I'll
bring her vet file with me along with her
toys and bed. I preferred to drive Tessie
to Kathryn's home, just so I can get a feel
for the situation. WE've tentatively set
a date of Friday, 8/12 for the transfer.
I offered to pay any expenses for the first
year but Kathryn said she'd assume any costs.
Thank you so very much for your care and
persistance. I just said to my husband that
when a situation "feels" right,
you know it. I KNOW this is the place for
Tessie and, if not for you, it would not
have happened. I hope you realize how great
and important your work is. Please know
that I will help as much as I can and, if
you ever have an emergency or need, I hope
you will reach out to me.
With deepest gratitude,
I was going to email you this week to let
you know how the "girls" are doing.
As I write this, Keiki is about 1 inch from
the screen--trying to chase the letters as
they go by or as I scroll up and down! She
is funny and feisty.
I thought since she was smaller, she'd be
more retiring and shy. SHE IS NOT! She is
always ready to eat...to the point of pushing
Koko out of her bowl before she's finished
eating. Cries like crazy when it is time to
eat..otherwise she's quiet, but rambunctious.
The first day we let them out of their room
for an extended time, she managed to get up
into our recliner chair and would not come
out. I even tipped it over to try to get her...couldn't
reach her. She was WAY up in there! Finally,
we left her be and she started crying so I
tried again and she let me get her. Hasn't
done it since. (Now she's sleeping on the
desk-gave up on chasing the words!)
Keiki is a love bug--purrs all the time. Just
talking to her, she purrs. She seems to be
adjusting just fine, too. The first day, she
cried when she was in their room without her
sister, once sister came back, she was fine....and
the first night she cried just a bit when
we went to bed and I guess she realized they
were alone. Now she only cries occasionally
when it's feeding time, or sometimes if I
talk quietly to her, she opens her mouth to
cry, but no sound comes out! Too cute.
As you can tell, we are enjoying them like
crazy. I think they are almost used to us
and the house...sometimes Nick is just SO
LOUD...but they seem to be taking him in stride.
If they need to, they go under the couch and
he can't bother them way back there! They
figured out how to go over the baby gate we
had in the doorway, at least by the second
or third day, so they are pretty much free
to roam now. I am going to move their litter
box downstairs (basement) maybe tomorrow or
the next day. I think they know their way
around by now pretty well.
I will try to forward the pictures I have
so far. I took a bunch the first day, but
they just wanted to sleep and kept closing
their eyes! More to come later....
We will keep you posted, and thanks again
for two beautiful girls!
(sorry this is so long...wow!)
Just wanted to let you know the kids decided
on the name "Ollie", short for Oliver,
for the kitten. He's great! We all are getting
adjusted. Talk to you soon.
well... Daria is Daria. Daria with Mardi
on the bed in front of the blinds he destroyed
is difficult to catch unless he comes to
you first...It took me 5 minutes to catch
can I say we both have fat faces. That is
such a good picture because Kringle is actually
looking into camera. He is a sweetie. He
loves yogurt, ice cream and taco bell. Go
Christine & Justin
He's so cute. My boyfriend, Lovessss him.
He said, this morning, he's my cat.
Letting you know - they are finally getting
along. God, I thought it never would happen.
But they're doing good. Peanutt and Sammi
are great, he's upstairs tearing the house
apart, for all his toys I bought him. He is
absolutely 100% use to the dogs, wants constant
company. lol. He's a awesome cat, he's in
a wonderful, caring, beautiful home. I ll
keep you posted. Got to run.
Sorry for the delay in responding. Yes, we
got the e-mail and the kitty care package
and Pam, thank you so much!!! The kittens
are doing great. They have been in the laundry
room and we have a gate at the end of that
short hallway and they have the run of that
area. At first I thought they would not come
out and after you left and the rest of my
family was out that same evening, I went in
the laundry room and sat on the floor and
just was there with them. Soon, a head popped
out from behind the washer and then another
head. They were scared at first but now they
are not! We also purchased some toys (feather,
ball hidden in a circular plastic mold and
one of those carpeted perches and they love
them. After the first day,the kittens have
warmed up to all of us. I asked each of the
family to spend some time with them and the
kittens have really blossomed. We named them
Spooky and Shadow. There is a noticeable difference
between the two of them. Spooky, at first
seemed like the more dominant of the two.She
is slightly bigger, has a fuller tail and
I think has a few wisps of white on her front
chest area. Shadow, on the other hand was
smaller, thinner tail and did not take the
lead. Well, that all changed in a day. Shadow
is definitely the more aggressive of the two.
Both have beautiful personalities. I did get
the information re: their vaccinations, etc.
I just don't know which one is "Gail"
and which one is "Oprah"?
We have been feeding them the Friskies cat
food and they love it. We will soon move them
in the basement where is very little furniture
and alot of room to move about and then the
next move is to gradually have them explore
the upstairs (main floor) of our home and
then the upstairs bedroom areas. At that point,
I wanted to put a small collar with a bell
on it so I know where they are. At this time
they are much too small for a collar. I guess
my only question at this time is: We want
to make their "base" home the basement
(which is fully finished with carpeting, etc.).
Do you think that having a litter box in the
upstairs area (first floor) as well as the
bedroom area (second floor) is a good idea
or will it confuse them? Or is it sufficient
to have the litter box in one place and they
will adjust to that. I know when we had other
cats we had only one litter box.
Thank you for your kind support and sorry
again for the delay in responding.
I will keep in touch.

EVEN LEUKEMIA POSITIVE KITTIES GET ADOPTED:-)))
KATIE WENT HOME TO A WONDERFUL, LOVING FAMILY!!!!!
Katie is doing great. She is finally eating
with the other cats and running around and
playing. She is still not fond of the dogs
but is getting better. She has now moved from
my daughters room to my husbands office chair!
she has full run of the house and loves it.
Thank you so much for her... she constantly
purrs! We absolutely adore her!!!
I wanted you to have these
photos of Eva. She has come a long way -
still doesn't like to be touched except
with her "mask." Thank you for
that top, but I can walk past her without
having her run away. She likes to play with
me & the feather toy. She comes to a
special stop & waits for me to get it
down from the fridge.
I am moving where all the
kitties will become indoor cats. They have
been practicing for the last 4 weeks. I
will let you know my address & plans
for Eva if something should happen to me.
are the lovebirds!!!! What a bunch of funny
cats I have.
Jerry is adjusting nicely - we have worked
out a system. During the day he gets the run
of the hallway and at night he goes into his
cage. I still can't get all the stinkin poop
off of him but I'm working on it. He's getting
used to getting bathed in the tub. He actually
spent a couple hours out on our deck with
us the other night - he is really a very sweet
bunny - very social. Pearl likes to go nose
to nose with him but they don't bother each
other. Please feel free to check in whenever
you feel the need.
Pam, how are you? It's Regina. I just wanted
to let you know how my 3 babies were doing.
They are all great. I am going to send you
some pictures of them. . It took Solomon
a while to get used to Adam (Tom) and Brody
(Jerry) but he loves them now......even
though he don't like to admit it....haha
Ok well enjoy the pictures.
I HAVE ENCLOSED THEREE PHOTOS OF KOKO AS PROMISED
TO YOU FOR SOMETIME NOW. YOU CAN SEE BY THE
PICTURES THAT HE IS MUCH MORE ANIMATED AND
HAS GAINED A GOOD AMOUNT OF WEIGHT. I ALWAYS
GIVE HIM 4 DIFFERENT BOWLS OF FOOD FOR HIM
TO EAT: WHICH HE LIKES ALL OF THEM. yOU CAN
PLACE THE PICTURES IN THE "HAPPY TAILS"
SECTION OF YOUR WEBSITE WITH MY PREVIOUS E-MAIL
TO YOU. IF THERE IS NOT ENOUGH ROOM FOR ALL
THREE PICTURES, SIMPLY PICK YOUR FAVORITE
PHOTO FOR THAT PAGE. I SENT YOU THE CUTEST
ONES OF THE BUNCH AND BY THE WAY, THE ONE
WITH KOKO'S MOUTH OPEN, HE IS ACTUALLY YAWNING,
NOT HISSING. I TOOK THE PICTURES OF HIM WHILE
HE WAS SLEEPY SO HE WOULD BE MORE RECEPTIVE
TO THE COSTUMES I PLACED ON HIM. DOES HE LOOK
LIKE ONE SPOILED CAT OR WHAT? HIS FAVORITE
TOYS ARE RUBBER BALLS, WHICH HE CHASES ALL
OVER MY PLACE. HE MUST HAVE OVER 50 OF THEM.
THEY END UP EVERYWHERE.
I HAVE ENCLOSED A DONATION FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION.
I HOPE ALL IS GOING WELL WITH YOU PERSONALLY/PROFESSIONALLY.
I ALSO DONATED (AS DID MY FATHER) BACK IN
MARCH FOR THE "SPENCER FUND". DO
YOU KNOW IF HE SURVIVED THE SURGERY AND HOW
HE IS DOING? IF SO, WHEN YOU HAVE THE CHANCE,
EMAIL ME TO LET ME KNOW.
TAKE CARE, PAM. I'LL STAY IN TOUCH TO LET
YOU KNOW HOW MY LITTLE KOKO PUFF IS DOING.
HE IS SUCH A DOCILE, GENTLE BUT PLAYFUL CAT
AND I KNOW HE IS NOW A VERY HAPPY CAT.
SUE MILLER (KOKO'S LOVING MOM.
Just thought you would like to see how much
Romeo has grown! He is very happy in his new
home, and he brings me so much joy! He is
such a lovable cat. As you can see he loves
playing with his toys. I am so happy to hear
that his brothers and sister found a good
a Pic of Chris's Vivian.......really big,
and a Year old Now!!!!! (and his other kid)
HE WAS ADOPTED
HE WAS ADOPTED.
I took a few pictures of Romeo. It was so
hard since he does not stay still for too
long! He is doing very well and has gotten
used to everyone in the house. I think he
got a lot bigger since Monday! He loves his
scratching post and his bed, but I think he
prefers my bed! He sleeps cuddled up next
to me at night. I put him in his bed, but
he eventually sneaks back and I find him on
my chest. I am having so much fun with him.
I haven't gotten anything accomplished this
week because I don't want to leave him. I
also got the adoption papers. Thanks for sending
them. Any luck finding his brother a home?
Well, I will keep in touch and continue to
let you know how Romeo is doing. Have a good
sound asleep in her favorite Teddy Bear
just LOVE our new little addtion :)
you Rosemary Wilson
Here are some pictures of "Peety"
the picture shows "Peety" sitting
willingly with Mic and he was hugging her
as she was singing twinkle, twinkle little
star to him, he sat there the entire time,
it was so cute. The other photo shows "Peety"
in the middle of the night past out in my
bed. He crawls into the blankets at the foot
of the bed and sleeps.
So far, the dog ("Brandy") and "Peety"
situation is ok, they deal with each other
but they don't cuddle yet. But they stay in
the same room with either other. "Peety"
won't let "Brandy" come any closer
then 2 feet, then he hisses but today they
came nose to nose then "Brandy"
turned around and walked away and "Peety"
just sat there. So they are getting a lot
Just wanted you to know
that our two new family members have settled
in and are doing fine.
out of the carrier and acted like he has
here, LOL. He is getting along great with
his new brothers & sisters
and follows Doug around like a little puppy
"Nacho" is now
named Cassiopia (Cassy). After a few hours
of hiding in the bookcase watching everybody,
she came out and started exploring. She
is right at home now and is just as sweet
and lovable as can be!
Fonzie isn't part of the "in" crowd
yet but he's getting there!
I'm kind of surprised they aren't buddies yet.
They are still in the checking each other out
phase. Fonzie seems totally comfortable though
(and his instincts somehow tell him to stay clear
of Gizmo.....the only thing he doesn't get yet
is that Gizmo doesn't like to be bothered while
she is eating and she will never share her food).
bad that Doc is still sick. I wonder why he isn't
getting better. Is he trying to be friends with
I am so excited. I finally got my stupid digital
camera working! All I did was move the plug to
another port and BINGO!
I've attached several photos of Winnie so you
can see how great he looks! I got him taking his
morning snooze on Jared's bed (his usual spot).
I'll get more later when he's looking out the
front door and moving around. But, I was so excited
to give you a peek at him!
BELOW YOU WILL SEE A BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURE
THE FIRST DAY WINSTON WAS RESCUED:-( SKIN &
BONES AT 4 1/2 POUNDS
TODAY, IN HIS NEW HOME:-) A LITTLE OVER 7LBS.
Pam! How are you doing? Fine Here! Today is Emma-Lizzie's
1st Birthday! We are going to celebrate with cupcakes
and a tea party also some tuna snacks. (we're not
gonna eat them though, haha) I promise that I will
be sending you pictures of her so that you can update
on your website and see just how big she has gotten.
She's still so little to me though. She is actually
sitting with me as I write this to you. She is the
best! She is just so lovable and sweet. We all love
her very much and are so happy to have given her
a home, her home where she is the "queen"
of the house. I could go on and on about Emma. All
those years of me saying I would never get a cat
not because I didn't like them, I just never had
one growing up. What was I thinking? Cats bring
so much love to your home, so much love in your
heart. She knows her name, she comes when you call
her, and she is always there to greet you. And Butchie
is just crazy about her. I just wanted to share
that with you. Oh and I also wanted to tell you
that Bear, my mom's dog, is just fabulous. What
a wonderful dog. It makes you wonder why people
return their animals and say bad things about them
because Bear is nothing what was told to us at the
shelter by what the old owner said. He is a wonderful
addition to our family also. And we have you to
THANK for our wonderful additions. Talk to you soon.
Emma-Lizzie is the white with brown tabby kitten
I wanted to write and give
you an update on the two kittens we adopted.
I think their names were Allysia and Elena;
they were almost all-black sisters. Now
their names are Sophie and Smudge, and they
are doing wonderfully!
Except for the respiratory
infection at the beginning they’ve
been very healthy. They are strictly indoor
cats (we let them out once in the snow,
which cured their wanderlust!), and love
to race around the house after each other.
They play with everything: cat toys, strings,
bits of paper… Their favorite toy
is a seven-foot-tall scratching post/condo
with sisal toys hanging from it. They often
sleep perched at the top, and race up and
down it when they’re awake. I have
attached two pictures. The third cat in
the second picture is Chole, their playmate,
who belongs to our housemate.
Thank you so much for everything!
I cannot tell you how much we enjoy playing
and petting Sophie and Smudge every day.
They are such a wonderful part of our life.

Fonzie seems to be getting more comfortable. Usually,
he is under the bed when we enter the room he
is in. But just now, I walked in and he was waiting
for me by the door. I think Wiggins and Hummer
got a glance of him too. I used the Feliway. I
think that stuff works wonders. I haven't tried
the other yet but to my surprise; everyone seems
to be handling things just fine. Fonzie still
goes under the bed but he comes out for food and
to be petted. I am really happy that noone had
an initial reaction to Fonzie. So I have really
high hopes that he is here forever. We still have
to work on some better photos but this is what
we have so far.....I get a kick out of how black
he is. When he is under the bed or in a dark spot,
I literally can't see him!
This is long over due but since I still live in
the dark ages and am not on line at home but only
at work, it has been difficult to find the time
to let you know how Koko is doing. He has put on
some weight-eats like a little horse. He purrs all
the time and constantly chirps and meows. He is
a very happy kitty now that he has found his new
home and actually, has taken over my place. He is
such a gentle little cat, but has some spunk and
has such an adorable personality. He was like a
statue cat when I took him home, but now he is asserting
He is good in the car when I go to check on my father
in Pa., but the 2 cats have not yet had the opportunity
to be placed together yet. My father's cat is afraid
of Koko and acts quite aggressive, but that is his
home turf and may feel threatened.
I am in the process of taking some pictures of Koko-have
a 35mm.. rather than a digital camera, so I will
have to mail you his pics. He is thriving and very
happy and follows me everywhere like a little dog.
I too, am smitten by the love bug and love him dearly,
I wanted to thank you again for your careful consideration
throughout the adoption process and I know I am
lucky to have such a sweet and loving buddy to care
for. Keep up the good work with your foundation.
I will also mail you a contribution along with some
pictures in the near future.
The pictures of Koko from the internet are now my
wallpaper and screen savers on my computer here
at work. Take care. May God Bless you in your continued
efforts at saving all these sweet creatures. Will
keep in touch with you. Hope your cat clock is still
working. Let me know if you have any problems with
it as I will get you another one.

PICTURE OF THE LUCKY FELLOW,
News for "Blue"!!!
just wanted to let everyone know that the Tonkinese
cat I'd been feeding these past 3+ months, ("Blue")
is now at the Animal Welfare Association in Voorhees,
NJ, where he will be adopted out as soon as he's
been tested, neutered and calmed down some (he's
pretty freaked out having been in a trap for 10
hours and then a car ride that took 20 minutes!).
When I took him yesterday, I gave
them a large bag of food, litter, Friskies treats
(tuna, his favorite), some catnip and a small
bottle of Rescue Remedy (might have go give them
more as the gal I spoke w/ today said they're
already almost out).
What is even better news, is that
if he does (I pray he doesn't) show positive for
Feluk/Aids, then Pam Ott, owner/founder of Saved
Whiskers, here in Southern NJ has got a permanent
home for him, so he won't be euthanized (as is
NJ state law). The AWA knows this (Pam emailed
Shannon there, as did I and I also told her on
the phone today), so this boy will NEVER spend
another night out in the freezing snow & ice!!!!!!!
I am just in tears of joy as I
write this - there have been a few people who
have "held my hand" these last few months
(you know who you are!),
again to you. I am grateful for the help of Pam
Ott, who paid the "surrender fee" to
the AWA, and for the loan of the have-a-hart trap
that I was able to safely capture Blue and bring
him in just in time, before this snow storm started
In case you don't remember this
beautiful boy from my previous posts, here's the
pictures of him again (throught a paw & nose-printed
glass door and taken at night). I wish I could
have gotten a better picture of his gorgeous aqua
colored eyes...but the memory of them will be
in my heart forever.
Just wanted to let you know that Holly is doing
great! She is eating like a champ and just about
as happy as she can be. What a precious little girl,
my husband and I are already totally in love with
our new girl. It really has helped to fill the empty
spot after we lost our Melody. She pretty much wants
to be wherever I am and rubs herself on my leg to
let me know she feels happy.
Thank you so much for introducing me to Holly. She
is just the perfect kitty for us.

ARE YOU? JUST SENDING SOME RECENT PICS OF
THE GIRLS. THEY ARE DOING GREAT. MOLLY LOVES
TO WAKE ME UP EVERY MORNING RIGHT BEFORE
MY ALARM. EMMA ACTUALLY LETS ME PET HER
NOW AND LAYS ON THE BED WITH ME. : )
Thank you for responding to an e-mail put out by
my daughter's cat rescue association " Saved
Whiskers Rescue Organization, Inc. ". Pamela
J. Ott, CVT, Founder. Thanks to their efforts, our
dog adoption at OCHD was made possible.
This being Jimbo's first day home in Audubon, NJ...I
am pleased with his personality and friendly adjustment
to his new environment. He has been accepting of
me, my husband, daughter, and grandchildren. I look
forward to his unfolding personality, the good &
the bad. I feel he is a good fit into our family.
We have had a lot of love here for past pets and
Jimbo is only the next recipient in line.
How lucky for him, how lucky for us!
Thanks so much for your e-mail response to "
Saved Whiskers " adoption inquiry which brought
Jimbo home to me.
Minne is so wonderful. You would not believe she
is the same cat from that animal hoarders house.
She is such a little doll!! I let her out of the
room she was in and her personality has come to
life. She is so funny. She hops all over the upstairs
like a puppy. Spike, my 15 year old who usually
tries to run the show, doesn't know what to make
of her. He does everything she does and vice versa.
I think he's in love with a younger woman!! She
has taken over Yogi's big berber ball -- I don't
know how he feels about that, but she has blended
right in. After losing my 18-year old Schroeder
at this time last year, she is a Godsend!!!
girls are doing great! They're still trying
to figure out who's boss, but other than
that, they are good. Carly's on her way
to being a lap cat. If I'm watching TV,
she's either on my feet, or wherever she
wants to be (I don't need to move or anything
=). She's taken to sleeping at the foot
of the bed. She's purring and clawing on
the comforter right now. She likes Doug,
& Doug really likes her, too.
Catrina is doing very well. She's been under
my bed most the time that people are home.
So I've been giving her the wet food under
there and letting her adjust. She'll let
me pet her under the bed, and she's starting
to venture out when I'm home. I can now
even feed her breakfast a little bit out
from her spot. She likes the bed, too, as
long as I am not on it. She's definitely
making progress, considering she's only
ever seen me for about 5 days of her life.
And they don't have a problem with the electric
litter box. I know it's gimmicky, but I
like it. It really helps keep the box clear
when I'm at work and can't clean it instantly
(and helps with the smell for Doug).
Thank you soooo much for these little cuties!!
Hopefully we'll decide on names soon.
I just couldn't wait to show you the newest photos
of our guy Winston! We had given him his fluids
early this evening, after which he went and sat
in the hallway. I sat in the living room waiting
for Jared to get done in the bath tub. After a while,
I got up and looked in Winnie's room and the hall.
He wasn't there. I happened to glance into our room
and there he was. He had jumped up onto the bed
and laid down with Chessi! He did that all on his
own. I can't tell you how overjoyed I was to see
him coming out of his shell a little. That's the
very first time he did that. I just had to take
pics for you.
I was so excited by Winston, I just had to show
you. What a love bug! I am so glad to have the opportunity
to have him in my life and to take care of him.
He's such a deserving guy. Also, more good news.
He's been keeping down the KD. I haven't been giving
him a lot. Just starting out slow. But, so far,
so good. I'll just increase it a little at a time.Well,
Talk to you soon!
here's some recent pix of
our little piggy. she's
quite fat now. i'll send u hard copies via
still acts like a dog, sniffing around and
for crumbs on the floor, insists on playing
multiple times a day and always meowing
to play, and she still brings u her ball
in her mouth
when she wants to play. she's still a scare-dy
curious and sticks her face or nose in everything.
she's got what we call in korean 'the princess
disease'...always wanting things HER way
preening herself. u can tell when u've pissed
off...she makes this funny face and runs
away from u.
but we love our little kitty anyways =).
do u know she
eats dunkin donuts, blueberry but not cinnamon
bagels, cake, and of course, she begs every
the dining table for meat. she's gotten
so fat, on
diet food no less, that no one gives her
much anymore. c u and nunzio and the other
sometime soon hopefully. take care and hope
Here are photos of the kitties
my son took last night. After we settled
them in we went to Pet SMart and got them
this big adorable cuddly kind of bed and
they layed on it together. Also got them
a couple toys and a scratching post with
catnip. June, your volunteer is a very nice
person. Both, you and she took good care
of Buddy and Sweets till they found us.
I hope they'll adjust well once they get
used to the house. I think its a blessing
we found these cats. With appreciation,
KITTIES ARE DOING GOOD, EMMA IS STILL A LITTLE
SCARED. SHE COMES AROUND AND LAYS AROUND BUT
DOESNT LET ME TOUCH HER. MOLLY ON THE OTHER
HAND DOESNT STAY AWAY FROM ME. SHE LOVES ATTENTION.!!!!!
THEY ARE DOING WELL.
I SHOULD OF WROTE YOU ABOUT RILEY. HE IS DOING GREAT.
WE PLAY FETCH ALL TIME WITH ALL HIS NEW TOYS &
GIFTS FROM FRIENDS & FAMILY. EVERYBODY JUST
FALLS IN LOVE WITH RILEY. HE REALLY LIKES MY MOM
SHE SAID SHE WOULD NEVER DOG SIT IF I WENT AWAY.
AFTER SHE MET RILEY. SHE IS SO HAPPY TO SEE HIM.
AND SHE SAYS TO RILEY DID U COME TO SEE GRANDMA.
SHE WATCHED HIM WHILE BRIAN SURPRISED ME & BROUGHT
MY SON UP FOR A VISIT. HE IS GETTING MORE &
MORE USED TO PEOPLE. BECAUSE ANYBODY WHO SEES HIM
JUST WANT TO PET HIM. I SAY JUST LET HIM SMELL YOPUR
HAND BECAUSE HE IS AFRAID OF A LOT OF PEOPLE. YOU
SURELY PICKED THE RIGHT NAME FOR HIM. BECAUSE HE
IS LIVING LIKE A GREAT LIFE OF RILEY. SORRY FOR
CHEWING YOUR EAR OFF. BUT I LOVE TALKING ABOUT MY
BABY OR MY 2ND SON. MY LITTLE BUDDY RILEY. TAKE
GOD BLESS YOU, SUZANNE
GOD BE WITH YOU ALWAYS, SUZANNE
Cooper and Beamer are doing very well. Beamer loves
to play with this one toy--it's just like that leopard
strap toy with the feather--he loves it. Cooper
is still adjusting, he likes to hide but doesn't
like to be held too much. Beamer purrs loudly and
likes to jump up on the bed. He also likes to chew
wires, but my son turned the electric off when he
went out, so that Beamer doesn't get shocked if
he chews the wires. We have a cat cave, and Cooper
likes that. They also enjoy their food, and licking
the gravy off of the Whiskas paté. Hope all
of your cats and the cats you are fostering are
well. Hope your basement is cleaned up soon, and
there's not much damage done.
is Rogue (formally "Ashley"... This cat
has more personality than any cat I've ever met
- and I've met a lot of cats... she is just crazy...
BTW - the lamp is off. Please notice our vicious
dog - and yes, I know cats can't eat dog food on
a regular basis...
New Owner Jeannie Cekala
wanted to let you know the kitties are WONDERFUL!
So affectionate, and so so playful! I'm
really glad they have each other. They went
for their 2nd shots today, and got a clean bill
of health! Lucy (grey manx) is 2.o lbs, and
Dakota (domestic) is 2.3 lbs.....he really GREW
in a week!
thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!!! Our lives
are so full now!
Love these babies.............
is Marlene Hornback Just waned to thank
you again for allowing us to take home these beautiful
kittens. We will take wonderful care of
them. Please don't hesitate to call us or
email at anytime. We're introducing them
to our pets now , things are going as expected
the dog is ok but the cat is unsure.
But in time Im sure they will all be fine thanks
again Marlene Hornback Just thought I'd send you
a few pictures of Peanut & Taffy (formally
Vanessa & Veronica).
promsised, here are some new photos of Jr.
As you can see he is making himself right at home.
We are still having a little problem with Jazzie
and him- but it is a lot better than what is was.
He is still a big kitten and he still just wants
to play all the time. She wants to sleep.
right now- Angel (dog) and Jr. Chases
each other around. Go figure.
will speak with you later.
little ones are doing great! The first day
or so they spent being shy and hiding behind our
couch but now they wont leave our side.
I def notice that Artie likes to help with the
litter. Every night when I empty it he is
right there watching. He loves the wet food
so much and he seems to know he is getting it
in the morning and when I return home from work
because he follows me around meowing until I give
it to him. His eye cleared up pretty good
but now it seems like Deuce is getting it and
i have been giving him the eye cream. Deuce
doesn't like the wet food at all but eats the
dry food often. Their favorite thing to
do is wrestle, day and night! Of course
they love wrestling more at night in our bedroom
and they sleep while we are awake. Its like
having 2 more kids! Deuce likes to weasel
his way into sleeping in our bed. The past
two nights I woke up with him laying at my feet.
Artie likes to lay in the bed we bought.
Overall they are great though. I am def
glad that we were able to keep them together cause
they love wrestling and seem to follow each other
wherever they go. Very active and at times
overly rambunctious. I am attaching a couple
pics I took last night after receiving your email.
to you soon.

Hi this is Sarah, Ryan's girlfriend. We decided
to keep the names Lacey and Louie because they seem
to recognize their names and they've grown on us.
Lacey is a little pig...we've been careful to make
sure Louie gets his share otherwise Lacey would
eat it all! Louie's eye infection seems to
be getting better. At first he was having
some trouble with the lights in the house so we
dimmed them all, but he seems better now.
Lacey adjusted to the move pretty quickly but Louie
seemed to be homesick for the first day or so.
He's adjusting better now. He's started hiding
under the bed and attacking our feet so we know
he must be feeling playful now. They are both
so sweet. Thank you so much for recommending
them to us when we asked about the kittens.
Lacey and Louie are definitely the right cats for
us. I tried attaching pictures to the email
but they are too big so once I get them smaller
I'll send along some pictures. Thank you so
Sarah and Ryan
How are you?
The kitties are doing wonderful, still into everything.
Paulie is still the ring leader. Its so funny
in the morning when we let them out. They
tear our the room and run down the hall like they
were just let our of prison.
Their scratching post, which is all carpeted and
shaped like a cone is just about torn up.
It's so funny when little Paulie jumps on the top
and flips over. He's growing nicely and of
course Penny is still getting bigger.
They have a visit with the Vet next Tuesday for
other shots and for Penny to have her hernia checked
out. I hope she does not have to have surgery,
but if need be it will be done.
Will let you know how the Vet visit goes when we
was just sitting down to write you. Taj
is making out great. She's a little lovebug,
makes herself right at home behind the dryer,
but is braver and braver everyday. She's
still getting used to running around on my hardwood
floors, slipping and sliding all over, but it
makes for great entertainment for me. These
pictures were taken when she was burying herself
in my couch cushions.
a real sweetheart. I know you were hesitant
to give her to me by herself, but judging by where
the toys are when I come home, she's been keeping
herself occupied nicely. Thank you so much.
my husband loves her and so do the kids the only
problem is they fight over the cat sometimes,
and Matthew picks her up funny sometimes.
She is amazing though because she lets him alsways
pick her up and never bites or scratches!!
she is safe though-I make sure of that.
is doing great and she seems very happy with us!!
|Thank you Pam...they're warming up well.
Jade & Jagger (Natalie & Nate) are coming
closer & I still need to slowwwly put my hand
towards them. They just watched me play w/
their toys (they think I'm here for their amusement,
lol). Then when I played w/ a cloth measuring
tape, they got involved. All ate pretty well...some
wet, some dry. Jag seems quite the hungry
boy...still nursed on Jazzie (think I'll confuse
them w/ all the Js). Jade was nursing this
morning the first time...she seems more independent.
They didn't seem to drink much water, though.
Any thoughts; or is this their norm?
Well, I'll keep you updated. I know they mean
a lot to you & am more than happy to keep you
informed. Have a great Sunday. Kim
I can see why he was called Bumpy, by his deceased
owner, LOL Now that he's decided I'm not Satan..he's
giving me lots of bumps on my leg, and lets me
pet him on his head..he was rubbing all over my
lap last night and purring sooo loud :)
I pushed it by trying to pick him up.. no deal
LOL Great news is he is eating really well,
drinking water and he used the cat box twice as
far as I can see. I opened the window to
the porch for a him today. He got a big whiff
of the wind and he got all puffed up and excited..it
was so sweet to see. He wasn't quite sure what
to make of going up & out the window so I
put a chair there for him, and then I went out
there (my neighbors must think I am insane if
they saw me!) and he eventually followed me. Then
once he got the hang of it he was in & out
all day. I think tomorrow I MAY introduce one
of my cats into there with him..I'll see how that
goes. I'm going to go at his pace & hope they
all get along :)
JUST WANTED TO TELL YOU RILEY & HIS NEW MOM
ARE DOING GREAT. PLEASE TELL TERRY THANK YOU SO
MUCH. RILEY IS THE BEST THING THAT HAS HAPPENED
TO ME IN A VERY LONG TIME. HE SPOILS MOMMY AND HIS
MOM SPOILS HIM. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, THERE R
NOT ENOUGH WORDS TO EXPRESS HOW THANK FUL I AM.
HE HAS BEEN NEUTERED & ALL UP TO DATE ON HIS
SHOTS. AND HE HAS A PET LICENSE DO NOT WANT TO TAKE
ANY CHANCES OF LOOSING MY NEW BEST FRIEND.
GOD BLESS YOU,
Pam & Maureen,
I would like to thank you both
for providing an online forum for people to communicate
the needs of animals. Maureen, Pam saw your SHARE
e-mail about Phoebe and posted her on her web
site. It didn't take long before a family fell
in love with Phoebe. Mary Beth came up from Summers
Point last night to adopt Phoebe. It was hard
for me to give her up, but I feel asured that
they will give her love and a good home. Mary
Beth has a 7 year old daughter, who loves cats
and they have a 14 year old cat that they thought
could use a friend. I think Phoebe will settle
in quickly and enjoy the activity and attention.
Thank you both for helping me in this situation.
It broke my heart to give her up and I only could
have to a good home, which you helped me find.
Keep up the wonderful work that you do for our
I just wanted to tell you how
much we are so happy to have Emma Lizzie in our
family. I really researched on finding a cat and
was very lucky to find your website, Saved Whiskers
Rescue Organization. What a find! From the moment
I was inquiring about adopting a cat, you were
so very very helpful. Not a day went by that you
didn't update me on the cats you just rescued
and would ask if I was interested in adopting
one. When the day finally came for us to pick
out our addition for our family, Emma Lizzie definitely
stood out to me. After I met her I could tell
she was the one. She has come so far in the past
two weeks, she is not the same kitten that we
brought home that Monday afternoon. She is always
playing and purring. She loves for me to pet her
and she just seems so happy which makes me happy.
And I can't forget to mention that I just LOVE
shopping for her. She is just a real joy and we
all really love her. I also just love watching
her play on her own. She is really fun to watch!
Her favorite thing to do right now is sit in the
window and watch outside. At times she ducks because
a bird flies by. It is funny. I just wanted to
take this time to tell you that you are an amazing
person for what you do. The time and dedication
is priceless. You truly have a big heart. Thank
you for leading us to Emma Lizzie. We will be

family coudn't be happier with Bear, the cat you
placed into our home though Saved Whiskers Rescue
Organization. You did everything you could to
ensure Bear's smooth transition into our home,
and he quickly felt like a member of the family.
Before we heard about Saved Whiskers, we had been
looking for a cat at other rescues and agencies
and never experienced the level of caring and
knowledge that we found at Saved Whiskers right
from the start. We were amazed and grateful at
the level of detail and attention you put into
everything, from choosing a compatible pet for
our other cat, Cosmo, to making sure Bear was
up to date on shots and healthy. We only wish
we had found Saved Whiskers ages ago! Thank you
from the bottom of our hearts for a job well done
and we wish you the best in your future rescues
and hope many, many more are lucky enough to adopt
from Saved Whiskers.
