When we adopted Socii (previously Lokie, but the names were similar enough that he made the switch right away!), we were looking for an anxiety support animal. I was having horrible insomnia, nightmares, and trouble sleeping. I had previously owned rats that were content to be held at all hours of the day. whenever I needed something to calm me down, but they died quite early in their lives and I was left without a pet. My parents took me to the shelter and I looked around for a cat.

Our two little dogs are Mia and Browny. They were adopted 7-8 years ago when I was 7. We had gone down just to look. When me and my mom got there from the store my dad who didn't understand just look, had decided he liked the miniature pinscher he was looking at. After discussing it my parents decided we could get him. Deciding he needed a friend we went back in to look for another small dog. We found Mia behind the door. My dad brought her out and we decided on her too. Now Mia is my best friend and we do everything together. In December of 2015 we decided to adopt another dog.
We adopted the most beautiful Russian blue about 12 years ago from HSU. Her name is Aerie (a.k.a. Aerie bear) She is the most wonderful cat in the world with quite the personality. She loves everyone she meets and is great with our other cats. She likes to play mama bear with them and she takes great care of the clowder when I'm away. Her favorite things are; rolling in the grass on a warm day, greeting guests at the door, sleeping on your lap right before you want to get up, and giving love bites to your toes that stick out of the blanket at 6am ish.
I had wanted a little kitty for quite some time, but was never quite able to get one. Once the time finally came, I was so excited to go find a new friend at HSU! When I saw Lucy, I knew I had to bring her home. She was so timid, and even afraid. She was hiding in the corners of the room and didn't want to come out to say hi. But I knew I could help to make her life better so I adopted her right away. We got her trimmed and all cleaned up, but she was still very afraid for quite a while. She hid under the bed a lot, especially during the day.
My husband and I just bought our own home. We have always been around our parents' animals and we noticed we missed that love and companionship having an animal in the home brings. We decided to go look for a cat at the Human Society. This first cat we looked at ended up being the one who stole our hearts! She sat there so quietly and patiently and she was rated one of the best cats with kids!
The Humane Society of Utah is looking for feline-friendly businesses to hire (foster) temporary workers to fill the position of “Office Cat” until permanent employment (adoption) can be secured.
Qualifications: Pets in the workplace have a proven record of decreasing stress and increasing job satisfaction! Plus, the vibration of cat purrs have healing powers… no really, they do.
Last Saturday I adopted Bela, a 3 month old Russian Blue/mix kitten who is just the most affectionate and loving kitten ever. She has adjusted beautifully and is enjoying her new life.
Bela has a kitty tower and likes to look out the window where she can watch three active bird feeders. We call it her "kitty TV".
Please send along my thanks and these photos to Bela's (Formerly named Teagan) to her foster mom, Elizabeth Stalling, and let her know that Bela is safe, warm, well fed, and well loved!
We adopted Aeva on July 31, 2015. She had been at the shelter for a little over a month. She has become the Queen Bee at our home. She settled right in after just a few minutes, and has quickly won the hearts of all of our friends and family. She is so patient with my daughters and our dogs. We couldn't imagine life without her and we are so so grateful that you brought her into our lives!! Thank you so much.
