#happytailsfor Tuxi! Now known as Chester

"He’s adapted very well! Still not playing with the dogs, but he plays with the other cats and spends a lot of time playing with toys and his people. He is definitely the snuggliest little guy and fits in so well.” 


MingSu Image

Ten years ago, I was reading the St. Albert Gazette when I happened upon a photo of a waif-like cat named "Mystery". As I read the description written about her, something tugged at my heartstrings. The write-up from NASAP stated that she would take her paw and grab your hand, in an attempt to get you to pat her head. I decided to go to the southside pet store where she was awaiting adoption. Not much was known about her, hence the name "Mystery". Sure enough, when I stuck my hand in the cage, she immediately grabbed my hand with her paw. Her loving good nature was immediately evident and she had me at the first purr. Looking back, the day I decided to adopt her (renamed MingSu) was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. She has brought me so much happiness and enjoyment over the years. She doesn't much resemble that scrawny cat I brought home that day, blossoming into a beautiful cat with a gorgeous coat and loving personality. I can't imagine life without her now.


These days she spends lots of time sleeping, curled up in a sunbeam or snuggled on a blanket, purring.

Beau (now Albert)

Beau is doing great! We have changed his name to Albert. We haven't had very many problems with him, he has fit in very well.

Now that the weather is nice has enjoyed being with us in the backyard; chasing bugs, and playing fetch with dogs!

He has claimed his own room, where he takes everything that he thinks is his, like all his toys, all our pens, car keys...

We have become fond of him, and are happy we have him!


Vixen Image

Vixen is doing great. Her and her brother constantly play. All cats on the house and dog get along well. We are so glad to have Vixen with her brother.



Sully and Caidin

Sully and Caidin Image

Sully has stolen our hearts! He has adjusted very well in his forever home. It was only a matter of perhaps 3 weeks and he pretty much had taken over the household. He is charming, affectionate and at times a little devil. One of his favorite games is hide and sneak attack...not always He has particularly taken a shine to Caidin the family canine. Sully watches out the window or waits at the door when she is out for a walk and acts as though she has been gone a lifetime when she returns. He announces to me when she wants in the house if I don't see her at the patio door quick enough. Caidin is also a rescue from NASAP... almost 10 years ago now. He is such a sweet little fellow and we adore him. He is so very smart too! 

I have sent a couple of pictures from my phone of Sully. I have none on my computer and am not techie enough to figure out how to do it. I will send more later.  Please let me know if you received the pictures that I sent from my phone.

Thank you,

Ken and Jo

Minnie is great. We changed her name to Mini. She is learning to walk on a leash and is mostly a good kitten.

Starlord (now Odin)

We love our new member of the family. The former Starlord - now is call Odin. He is doing great. He is very loving - loves to cuddle and getting belly rubs. Quick and smart - knowns his name and how the house works. He was scared at first but with gentle words and space - he came out of his shell. He still is afraid sometimes but we can talk to him and show him that he is safe. We have no issues with him. He is a very lucky cat - I can not think how his life would have been without his rescue. Thank you for your hard work in saving these beautiful animals. I hope the pictures work - Odin does not like the camera.
