I had a sudden urge to add to my little family in December 2017, so I went looking for a cat. I had originally gone in to look at two others, but when I laid eyes on Luna (then known as Boo) and she rolled on her back and offered her tummy, I knew it was love at first sight. Luna is now spoiled rotten with love, toys, treats, and tags along with me and her new brother, Leo, everywhere I go. She is the most loving cat I’ve ever had the honor of knowing!
I adopted my cat Jane (I never changed her name because it fit her so well) in July of 2015 after the death of my previous cat. I was completely heartbroken. After a few weeks of mourning my beloved Ivy, I decided that there were more animals in need of homes that I could love and give a new chance at life, and could love me in return. I spent three hours wandering the Humane Society. I probably spent time with every cat there. I finally walked past a room with a paper on the window reading all about Jane from her previous foster family.
Our 12-year-old cat died in April of 2016. We grieved (still do), but opened our hearts to 8-year-old Niska in October 2016. He had some scars, a chunk missing from one ear, and was afraid of loud noises. This made us think he was a stray at one point, or even for most of his life. He came home with us and never went outside again. He had food, treats, his own mug for water (Mommy and Daddy have people cups. I want a people cup.), scratches, towers, everything. He spent that X-mas with us in complete awe. I don't think he had ever seen a X-mas tree or lights before.
I've loved cats since I was little but as a teenager I became allergic. I heard that if you lived with one cat for a while it would be ok, and I really wanted a cat of my own. Babe was immediately very friendly, and when I brought her home she followed me out of the room and everywhere I went.
Now if you sit down you can bet she will claim your lap, and she loves having her chest rubbed. My husband wasn't too eager about having a cat but now I think he loves her more than me!
My boyfriend and I decided on a whim one day to come in and walk dogs. Before we left we ended up walking through the cats and "just looking". It only took me 3 days to decide I was going back for a kitty! When we came in to look we knew we were specifically looking for a black cat since they have such a hard time being placed into homes. We had 3 cats we were trying to choose from and decided to spend some time with one. We got the smallest most timid cat first and spent some quality time with her. We knew without a doubt that she was the one we wanted.
In 2001 mom took us as a family to the Humane Society to look for a kitten as luck would have it we came home with two. We named them Sugar and Spice because they were both white and Sugar pure white with pink ears had the sweetest personality and Spice was super feisty with a little bit of orange they were bundles of joy and super healthy happy kittens until spice ate some plastic and had to have surgery when he was a couple years old.
We adopted Echo about a year ago and have loved having her in our lives. We noticed that she seemed to have anxiety problems related to our leaving her home alone when we went to work, so, we decided to look into getting another cat to keep her company.
We took Yoshi in on a two-week trial to make sure he got along with Echo; of course, we fell in love with him right away so we were released when the two seemed to tolerate each other ok. They still aren't BFFs but Echo is happier now she isn't alone, and Yoshi is pretty laid back.
I fostered a beautiful Flame Point Siamese named Pancake. He was ten years old and turned in because of another pet. He was adopted and brought back because someone was allergic to him and I felt bad and decided to adopt him myself. It was kitten season and at that time it is harder for older cats to get adopted. He was stressed out and I had trouble with him urinating on my carpet and he had been checked out by the vet and there was no bladder problems just behavioral issues. For a long time I kept him in the bathroom when I was away or in bed at night.
