We absolutely love our Willow girl! She is so sweet and has the most fun personality. Despite the pictures, our resident cat Wondo does not like her yet but she forces her love on him so we are hoping it will change!
I wanted to write and let you know that the boys are settling in great. Our two pups were initially ENTHRALLED to meet them (the boys weren't so sure), but everyone is already well on their way to adjusting and getting used to the "others" being there.
They are just a joy to have around (well, maybe except at 11pm and they're crashing around 😂), by we just adore them. Watching them play and cuddle is better than TV and I don't think we'll ever be a "1 cat household" ever again -- 2 is definitely better!
Thanks you for allowing us to adopt these two boys. They are a complete love :)
You were not kidding about their energy lol. They've been great. Took a few hours for them to settle in and tour the whole house but they've been cuddly nonstop ever since.
Troy (our other cat) has been kept busy since we got them. They wear him out, which is a major plus.
I've been having to stay on top of keeping them away from my expensive electronics but I think we are making progress. They've found their personal spaces in the house to relax.
Thanks for everything.
Sleeping soundly (finally)!
I just wanted to give you a little update on Panda/Sylvester. He and his big sister have become inseparable, big sis doesn’t like going anywhere without her baby brother and she sometimes gets a little jealous when he decides to play with his favorite toy instead of playing with her. He is growing into a big boy and as you can see below, he loves his big sis as much as she loves him. You would never know they aren’t litter mates.
Sincerely, the Sullivan family
Newest picture of our little love bugs…
And yes they are still on a diet. They have a thyroid problem and they’re big boned. :-)
Hi! Oh my gosh... Huey is just the best. So sweet, playful, and kind to everyone and other animals. He is commonly referred to as Huey monster or our little monster because he runs around all over the place and likes to get into things. Bags, Christmas gifts.
The other day he stole a whole avocado off our kitchen counter walked it down the hallway into my bathroom and was playing with it. He also enjoys (much to my dislike) to play with feminine products. YUP.. loves the laser pointer and gets excited if I ask “what to play with the LIGHT?” He starts to meow and look around. lol I’ll send you some sweet photos of him!
I forgot to mention too... he LOVES water. If I turn on the shower before closing the door fast enough he will sneak in and lay down under the water. He even tries to lay in the bathroom sink when brushing my teeth. Crazy kitty!
He is a total joy and I am happy to say that he has promoted play with the older cat Cora. She has lost two pounds in just a short 6 months! And she has taught him to be super cuddly and loving.
He’s amazing, thank you again so much! Everyone loves the little Huey-Monster!
Tiffani and Huey❤️
This was after a big snuggle with me and then some mutual grooming.
Our senior kitty is still a bit cranky, but not showing any aggression to them. They have become good friends with the three year olds.
I adopted Simba (Lu Lu) from Lapcats in 2013, and she is doing great with our SPCA cat Lily. Here she is playing pool with my husband, Matt, and sleeping with Lily.
Just to let you know that Tabitha, aka Little Fat Kitty, and I are doing great. She pretty much knows this is her house and even came out to meet my brother last night. I am sure as time goes by and she feels completely safe knowing she doesn’t share her home with another animal, her real personality will come out. I am so glad to have her and will continue to update you.
Regards, Sandra P
Happy New Years! Hope you are well.
Just thought I’d send you a picture of Picasso. He’s a little rascal and has become very comfortable as you can see. He is such a great cat from when we adopted him. He is very lovable and he loves to cuddle. He sleeps right outside of Lilli’s kennel every night. It is almost like he is protecting her.
Thanks again for letting Picasso be part of out life!
A scatter of toys, and the girls are playing up a storm. Squeakers was actually fetching for a little while. Meanwhile Chloe considers anything in her realm prey, even a little mound of cat litter (gee I wonder how that got out of the box) or a shadow.
Introductions have started. Apparently the girls are terrifying.😂 We'l have two of us home for three days this weekend - should make that easier.
Zeus and Xena had their first visitor and she came bearing gifts! They're 2 for 2 with sleeping through the night.
Hi! Wanted to send you a quick update on Haru. He’s loving all the attention, loves playing with his toys, and is our shadow. He’s doing great!
My new babies are settling in quite well. They are loving and playful, and we are all in love with them.
Colby's (Conway) temperament has mellowed, and he is much less anxious than he was when I adopted him. He is a precocious little guy, while Latte (Audrey) is the more snugly. When Colby is done running around, is ready for cuddles.
Thank you again for my little ones. I love them both so much.
Tabitha and I are doing great now. She has three vertical scratching posts and three horizontal cardboard scratchers which she seems to prefer. She also has a cat condo in front of a window where she like to watch the birds and squirrels. She has numerous toys and 3 pet beds. I don’t think there’s anything she doesn’t have. Just wanted to update you.
We adopted them in May of 2014 so right in the middle of that (definitely hear ya on time flying by!). Figaro continues to be the life of the party, he runs and greets us at the door whenever we get home and won't let you pass until you rub his belly. He also loves to hang out with our two dogs, entirely possible he thinks he's part canine. Niles is the absolute snuggliest cat in the world, he's completely pliable and just curls up on the bed with both of us for hours on end. He continues to have a few health issues (thyroid, respiratory, AIDS) but very well managed and hasn't slowed him down at all.
Thank you so much and for all of your help today! They are already settling into their new home and spent most of the afternoon playing with all of their fabulous toys. Finally went down for a snooze perched on the top of the couch. Such sweet faces. Tanner and I are having a hard time concentrating on anything else with all the adorable entertainment!
Happy New Years and thank you again 🐱
Kristin & Tanner
We renamed Kenya to Dillon to continue with our Gunsmoke theme for our cats. At the time of Dillon's adoption, we owned a Maine Coon named Miss Kitty, so we were looking for names from the other characters in Gunsmoke. Unfortunately, we lost Miss Kitty to Cancer in 2015, and just very recently adopted Nyx from the Bradshaw Animal Shelter. Nyx is a senior cat who had been at the shelter for several months, and just wanted to come home with us.
Here are some pictures of Dillon and one of Nyx for you.
Porter is now Ajax. Everything is going great. He’s a happy little kitten! He likes to sleep down at my side at night, and I’ve found his favorite toys so far are a lazer pointer and this wand thing with leather strips at the end of a string.
A buddy of mine got some professional lighting setups for his DSLR for christmas. So we were using Ajax as a model for practice. Check it out.
I was looking for a fur baby last year and found my main man Brody at Lapcats. He had a broken leg and Lapcats rescued him from the Yolo Shelter.
My husband and I instantly fell in love with Brody. Months later, we decided to get him a brother or sister so I contacted Barbara to help us find a perfect match for our family.
She sent me photos of Sophie (who’s shelter name was Yanna) and it was ❤️ at first sight. We brought her home and for a while she and Brody did not get along but... as you can see, they ended up falling in love with each other. Now they are inseparable and always have to be close to each other.
These two babies have made our lives complete. We love them so much and we are so thankful to Lapcats for finding them for us.
We absolutely love Kobe (now Oliver) and Suzu. We tried to keep them in the master bath for a few days, but they, Oliver, was not happy. We let them out and they are all over our house,. They follow me everywhere and try and help me do what ever I'm doing. I love it. They are so loving and cuddly. They fit right in. It's like they've been here forever. Thanks for letting us have them.
Day two and Buddha is feeling more confident! He is enjoying all the toys and love!! Merry Christmas Eve!
Angus (Lager) and Sophie (Donut) are doing really well and thriving.
Michelle has been in Florida this week due to a family emergency, so Sophie has been staying at my home with her brother Angus and my two older kitties. The older girls still are reserving judgment, but Angus & Sophie are loving being together again and are into EVERYTHING. They spend most of their time together . . . when they aren't interacting with me and/or my roommate Robert. When Robert is done with work for the day, he spends his time crawling around on the floor playing with both kittens and brushing them out, and they are both getting used to and expecting to being brushed on a daily basis.
I have a toy that has a cardboard scratcher that's in the middle of a plastic track-ball thingie, and they both love taking turns playing with that . . plus they are both showing early signs of addiction to my laser pointer device. For obvious reasons, we're not using that much as a toy, only an occasional distraction!! But this house here has a TON of kitty toys, so they are both very engaged. We have squeaky toys, feather toys, and "fishing toys" that have different kinds of ends. Just this morning, a stuffed bird toy with a feather tail lost his entire tail . . . . there were feathers EVERYWHERE over the living room. But hey, that's why they call them toys, right? The kitties enjoy them and all toys are disposable.
Both kitties are very much loved, and while Michelle is out of town I've been sending her pics of Sophie. I'm attaching a couple of those pics for you, and also some pics of Angus.
Also attached a pic of our kitty tree, which is 7' tall and custom-made to my specifications. The oversized base is 30" square, and all upright posts are solid pine 4x4", wrapped in sisal rope, plus carpeted plywood shelves and "cabin" levels, and a solid plywood base, carpeted (NO PRESSED WOOD OR CARDBOARD).
The 'tree' was originally meant to accomodate 4 large cats who would make runs at it from across the room, so the kittens are truly enjoying themselves on it, as they are so small they can't even make it move at all. My older girlies prefer to spend most of their time on my bed nowadays, so they don't mind the kittens being on the 'tree'. When Robert and I are in the living room, the kittens spend most of their time in there with us.
Head bumps for a wonderful Christmas!!!
