Belle Image


I thought you might enjoy seeing Belle, our NASAP rescue.  Belle turned 10 years old today!  She has come so far in the last five years, and is blossoming with her two brothers, also re-homed through Nasap.  Thank you for all the great work you do!

Ebenezer and Linus

Ebenezer and Linus Image

Hi NASAP.  Here are Ebenezer and Linus having an afternoon nap..  After an initial adjustment period they both settled down and we are so pleased with them!  They are wonderful additions to our family and not only amuse us, but each is distinct with an awesome personality that get along well around the household.  We are so lucky to have them!

We are currently gently trying to teach Ebenezer not to scratch so much when he plays with us-no claws!!  Linus is the athletic cuddlebug and quite the incredible jumper.  He counter surfs on occasion and so he has his quirks as well!  They are great companions and enjoy our early morning coffee time.

Linus loves his laser light and Ebenezer plays like crazy with mouse toys. 

And so we have all adjusted to each other's presence. 

This picture is a typical one now.  Best of luck with your work at NASAP. We are very pleased we found these two great cats. 

Regards, Leslie C


Luna Image

Luna is a fantastic cat and is fitting along well with all family members! I have been recommending NASAP to anyone looking to adopt a pet.


Checkers Image

I know that it has been a very long time since I sent anything to you.  I was thinking about you the other day and thought I would send you a note and some pics of “Sir” Checkers.  Checkers is doing very very good. We had a big scare this summer and almost lost him.  We had renovated our basement last winter and Checkers apparently ate one of the plastic electrical caps.  Because there  was a hole in the center he did not show any sign of concern (of course we did not know that he had eaten it at the time) until a furball plugged it up.  In early July he started vomiting blood.  We took him in to the vet and they gave him something to settle his stomach because there was nothing else wrong.  It continued and we went back in a week later.  He had lost A LOT of weight.  He went in for X-rays which they then found the cap in his intestine.  He had exploratory surgery to remove it.  Unfortunately because of where the surgery was, he developed a severe infection.  Our poor little one had a rough couple of weeks. After some antibiotic injections and some fluid drained, he slowly came around.  He is doing wonderfully now and has gained all of his weight back.  Hopefully, this experience will deter him from tasting unfamiliar things, but I’m not so sure. I attached a few pics of Checkers and Mario, doing what they do best. CUDDLING!!!


Marmalade Image

Marmalade is doing fantastic! He settled into my home extremely quickly and we get along very, very well. He is extremely affectionate and loving- exactly what I was looking for.

Loki (formerly Eddie) Image

Hi there,
Sorry I haven't sent pictures in a while I've been meaning to and just keep forgetting! I've attached a few for you this time - he's darkened up quite a bit and is a very handsome guy. He's going to be quite big, he's already taller than one of our girl cats.


Sevin Image

Sevin is doing just fine. I think he's adjusted very well to his surroundings and his new, albeit extended, family :). We are out daily to the river, and Terwillegar when we can, and he listens quite well. Actually very well... he's a bit of a sponge outside - he loves to learn - and it was all of 40 minutes of teaching and he was doing full swim water retrieves. I think mostly he just likes being outside which is good for the both of us!

The only weird behaviour I've seen is truly a weird one. He turns on anyone who opens or closes a recliner. I thought it was limited to recliners but it's actually a metal on  metal sound as he did it to me last night as I was opening the fireplace... it's weird for sure, but now that I know what it is I'm getting him used to it, and even now its less of an issue. He's a happy, healthy, loveable boy - I'm sorry, but you can't have him back ;-)


Marley Image

Hi there,
We are very happy to say Marley is a great addition to our family. He is a very loving dog and always wants to be cuddled (I think he thinks he is a lap dog) :). He has grown attached to everyone in our family but is especially close with our 6 year old daughter. He has not been having any more problems with his nails. Him and our other dog are best friends and keep each other very busy during the day. We also took him camping a few times this summer and he loved it and did very well. I have attached some pictures so you can see how much he is loved and has grown on all of us.
