Good Bye, Whiskers!!! Hello to the Trio!!

Whiskers went home last night...REALLY WENT HOME!!!  Her family has been sad since mid-May when Whiskers, who's real name is Miffy, got outside and they could not find her.  They knocked on doors, asked neighbors and even came to the Shelter but no one had seen her.  Just the other day a boy who lived with Whiskers and loved her dearly saw her little face at PetSmart and recognized her immediately!!  His mom emailed us a picture and sure enough every little marking matched up!!  Our Whiskers was their Miffy!!  Our volunteer, Larissa, was lucky enough to witness the reunion last night when Miffy went home with her family.  Whiskers/Miffy meowed at her mom and kissed her and was so happy to see her!!  How wonderful is that???  We have since learned that she is 14 years old.  This poor old girl must have missed her family so much.  Now she is home where she belongs!!

Three new guys arrived today...Mary Katherine, Nod and Tara and are in the big cage.   These three littermates came into the Shelter in mid-June as kittens.  They are all happy, playful and will make great pets!!  Although they have been living together they can be adopted separately and will be just fine!

Latest Adoptions and Shuffling of Cats!!

I have had a difficult time keeping up lately!!  Zazzle and Dazzle were both brought back to the Shelter due to what appeared to be intestinal issues and have both since been adopted!!  Of course this is not surprising as they are both such phenomenal cats!!

Cupcake and Waffles both left this week, to separate homes.  Waffles was adopted by a multi-generational family and will be the only pet.  She will never be lacking company or attention!!  The same goes for Cupake.  She was adopted into a little family -  mom, dad and two children - and is also the only pet. 

On Thursday Vito and Clover arrived at the store. Both are resilient young cats that will make wonderful family pets!

Clover is a young calico who lived with kids and dogs prior to coming to the Shelter. Sadly, her owner was involved in a motor vehicle accident and could no longer take care of her pets. 
Vito is a cute little male kitten that was found in the engine compartment of a car at about seven weeks old. He then went into a foster home with other cats, kids and dogs.
With Cupcake, Waffles, Dazzle and Zazzle leaving we have room for two more cats.  Hopefully they will arrive in time for the adoption table tomorrow (Wednesday) night. I'll let you know who they are when they go...I promise!!

We have a permanent spot open for every other Saturday morning starting October 19.  If you are interested in doing it or know someone who is please let me know.

A new volunteer mother/daughter duo is taking over every Thursday night starting October 17!  Welcome Christine and Katie!! Special thanks to Jen & Lauren, the mother/daughter (and son Ryan on occasion) that have been doing Thursday nights since this program started in June of 2006.  Thanks for all your help over the years!
