Buddy

Buddy Image

We are enjoying Buddy very much and indoors he is very sweet and has excellent behavior! He is a very high energy boy and we have found that he needs an opportunity to run after a ball on a daily basis. For an 8 year old he has amazing agility and strength and we continue to be amazed by herding skills and an intensity of behavior. We are working daily on leash training during walks in our neighborhood and improving manners around other dogs; both areas continue to provide challenges.
Thank you for your continued interest and support.

Gigi (now Cuddles)

Gigi (now Cuddles) Image

Hi, Gigi is now called Cuddles.  She is doing great, she loves her new home, she is spoiled rotten. 

 She loves to cuddle, when I am watching TV and she is sleeping on chesterfield, she comes over to me and jumps on my lap for cuddles.  When I go to bed, she jumps on the bed and sits on my chest for awhile - she knows I am reading, but she wants the attention.

She loves this BIG TEDDY BEAR I have, in fact, she sleeps between his legs, it is quite comical to see her cuddling into him.

I notice she has a lump under her belly, the Vet never said anything about it when I took her in for her check up, it was there at that time, so I plan to take her back to have it checked out.  It doesn't appear to bother her, she eats well and drinks her water.

One thing she does not like and that is the car - when she is in her carry on she just howls, her lungs are good.

Other than that, she is a wonderful cat.

Thank you.

In closing I wish you all a Very Happy New Year.

Tori

Tori is doing great!  She follows me everywhere. She has relieved some of the stress off my old dogs as Sherlock our kitten likes to play.

She lays on the hearth while the rest of the crew are on the floor in a dog bed.

She is much too classy to lay on the floor.

Thanks again for our wonderful addition.

Lilo (now Lizzie)

Everything is going really well with Lizzie (I renamed her Lizzie instead of Lilo) - we're both very happy!  She's adjusted really well to her new home, and loves racing around the house chasing her toys.  Lizzie is so much fun to play with, as she still picks up her toy with her teeth and carries it back for me to throw for her again.  It's adorable!  

I'm so glad I adopted Lizzie in September - she's very affectionate, playful and mischievous!  It was a bit tricky to clip her nails earlier on, but she's getting used to it now.  

I've attached a few pictures of Lizzie.

Happy New Year,

Jeanette

Brooklynn

Brooklynn Image

Brooklynn (now also called Brook and sometimes Brookie Bear) is a 75 pound sweetheart. She gets along great with her roommate Diesel the cat; I adopted Diesel approximately 13 years ago through NASAP as well. She seems to enjoy sitting like a frog and gets a kick out of me laughing at her silly ways. The couch is her favorite place to hang out whenever we are inside; her second favorite spot is her bed from Costco.

She still barks and is 'dramatic' when she sees another dog but doesn't pull on the leash if we're far away. We simply go for longer walks to avoid running into other dogs. I've worked with a trainer once and will again when I need to. I think we'd both like to be able to walk up to/past other dogs rather than avoid them.  For now, she's happy at home and we've figured out how to go for walks without stress. I bought her a freedom harness...best purchase ever.

Recently she started licking her leg in one particular spot (not sure yet if that's just a bad habit, driven by boredom, from anxiety, an itch that's now an obsession to nibble at, etc.); we've been to the vet a couple of times and we're trying a cone and antibiotics for now before starting any medications. I don't feel that she's anxious but it's possible she's bored sometimes and now does that out of bad habit. My focus is to get the spot to heal and to keep her mind busy.

She rarely scratches due to itchiness; I've kept her on the same brand of food that she was eating before I adopted her but switched her from the Lamb to Duck. She sure does love her food!

I feel very fortunate that both Diesel and Brook are part of my life.

Happy New Year to everyone at NASAP!

Things are going very well. We have changed her name to Lucy. She is getting along very well with the other cat in the house and she loves bed time. She sleeps with us in the bed almost every night.  She was spayed on December 13th and I have attached the spay certificate along with a few pictures. Have a great Christmas!!

Simon

Simon Image

Simon is doing well and has become a very cherished member of our family.  My husband, Dean loves the little guy.  Dean finally has his boy to watch hockey with.  Motley, our 11 year old female cat is slowly warming up to Simon, but Simon is oblivious to her smugness.  He is working on being a great little brother to Motley. 

Simon's not so little anymore. 

We are dog-sitting a 22 month old Golden Retriever, named Tucker.  Simon was a little intimidated by Tucker's size at first, but they have become best friends. 

I am planning on putting up the Christmas tree next week.  I know Simon will love it because he loves to climb and he loves to hide.  The tree will be the perfect environment for him.

I post photos of Simon on facebook.  Today I took a video of him watching hockey and hopefully I can get it on Facebook too. 

Thank you Anne and Shawn for taking such wonderful care of Simon during his first weeks of life.  The loving environment in your home has made him such a warm, fun, loving, playful and healthy kitten.  Our family is looking forward to sharing many years with Simon.
