Ares (now Snapple)

Snapple (we renamed her!) is doing great! Just had her spay surgery today, everything went okay.

She's still socializing with the existing cats - I didn't want to rush it so as to avoid any long-term discomfort, but they'll co-exist in the same room and only when she charges at the older cats do they give any reaction - usually a swat on the nose (claws in) and she'll back off.

She loves exploring the house - we've kitty-proofed most of it based on our previous heart-stopping experience (somehow, she managed to get the cover off one of the heat registers back in August and made it all the way to the basement - luckily, no injuries, but we've been extra careful since then).

She'll be joining her adopted sisters in the next couple of weeks on a full-time basis, once she heals from her surgery, and she remains one of the sweetest, most well-tempered cats I've ever known.


Royalle (Now Gus)

Royalle (Now Gus) Image

Royalle (who we now call Gus-Gus) is adjusting well to our home.  Whenever we come home from being away, he's always there, meowing like crazy!  He likes hanging around with people, and loves cuddling.  He's also very talkative, which we love.  He was a bit shy around visitors at first, but he's adjusted now.  He's a very sweet and loving cat who's been a good fit for our family.

We haven't had any issues with Gus. He was inclined to scratch the furniture when we first moved in, but my parents (who had a scratching cat of their own) had built 'couch guards', so we just borrowed those, and placed scratching toys nearby for him to use until he got used to the idea of what was appropriate to scratch.  Beyond that, he's been wonderful!

Thanks for asking after him! 


Flossie (now Purrsephone)

Flossie (now Purrsephone) is great! She has been such a perfect kitty and we have zero complaints. I have been on crutches since we picked her up and she has been a wonderfully cuddly kitten to help with all of this down time. 

Purrsephone loves playing with her housemate Hades and they couldn't be a better match, they play, they cuddle and they cause the smallest amount of mischief together.

Purrsephone and Hades have both been featured on Meowbox also - though it probably helps that I know the owner. 

I'll pick out a few recent photos because I know I definitely cannot stop taking them: )

Fodol (now Fizgig)

Fodol (now Fizgig) Image

Fizgig (we changed Fodol's name), continues to blossom in our home. He and our other cat, Edith, play well together and he has become very affectionate and talkative with us. He's a real sweetheart!

We moved a couple of weeks ago and Fizgig adjusted really quickly to that as well. He loves to explore the house and spends a lot of time birdwatching.

I can't think of any issues. He's even remarkably tolerant of kids. Susan and I love him and we're so pleased that he seems to have happily made himself at home with us.

Thanks for checking in! Hope you enjoy the pics!

Best wishes,

Simon & Susan

Lola (now Bellatrix)

She is doing extremely well. She is so very sweet but very mischievous too. We love her to bits. We named her Bellatrix. She's had all her vaccines and boosters done. And we're going to schedule her spaying pretty soon here.



Maude Image

Thought you would enjoy me sharing this with you. My dear little toothless Maude is now an internationally published model! She is the sweetest little cat and recently she made her way onto one of my photo shoot sets and she was the star of the shoot. She is fitting in beautifully with the other 2 cats. They have a sweet spot for her and she is the cat the others always want to curl up and nap with. I am so glad I adopted her! She is the sweetest lovable cat ever!

Thank you for everything. I'm loving the cat tree and am very grateful to you for the wonderful foster family I had and my new family treats me great too!

Love Leo, Mandy & Brian

Chuckie and Atticus

Chuckie and Atticus Image

We’ve had Chuckie now for just under 2 years. He just turned 8 last month and is doing great. Atticus we’ve had for about 2 1/2 years and he just turned 9. They bonded almost immediately and are still the best of friends. Atticus loves the heat and warm weather so we even take him to Palm Springs with us. He gets to actually go to restaurants there, almost all the stores are dog friendly and they have many dog parks and trails. It’s more of a vacation for him than for us! We also have another rescue dog that is blind, both Attie and Chuckie welcomed her and have been amazing role models for her. We have fosters that come as well, they all almost seem to bond with Attie immediately. He has been through kind of a traumatic past himself and he is now the example of a perfect support dog for other dogs that have emotional trauma in their past. He sometimes does more than I think a human can. Chuckie is a strong leader but has a very mellow personality. These 2 have not only made me so unbelievably happy, but they have also helped now with other rescue dogs. Thank you NASAP for taking these guys in and bringing us together!
