Babe's Story

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!

Winky's Story

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.

Jacque & Jesper

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.

Echo and Yoshi's Story

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. 

Pancake's Story

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.

Rugby's Story

In November 1996, I adopted an orange and white tabby cat from the Humane society of Utah. I named him Rugby and he was never apart from me after that. I grew up, got married, moved from apartments to new homes. I started a family and all along he was there beside me. He lived a long, healthy life and passed away peacefully on Friday, Aug. 12, 2016. Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to bring him into a loving home, and for all the services you continue to provide at the Humane Society of Utah.

Polly's Story

I wanted to send a thank you for allowing me to adopt Polly on 08/03/16. I went to the Humane Society after leaving the Vets office. Sadly I had to have a rescue cat that I had cared for put to sleep. She had Breast Cancer. I wanted to find another cat that needed a good home & to distract me from the loss of Lily. Polly has distracted me for sure. As you can see, she has made herself right at home. The description of her on the card was spot on. I can't go into another room without her trotting by my side. So far she has not tried to go outside which I'm happy about.

Samantha & Kato's Story

I had recently lost my cat that I had had for more than sixteen years. I was missing her SO badly. I came to the Humane Society and they helped me find these two beautiful babies. I have had Samantha and Kato for almost two weeks now. They have already brought so much love and joy into our house. Thank you for helping me find the perfect fit for our family!
