Waylon and Willie Update!
We're all doing and getting along great. We enjoy them tremendously even though they seem single minded in the desire to turn our furniture into kindling and that we have been unable to keep Willie of the counters and book shelves (the resulting breakage of glasses, pottery, etc. has been considerable). Still, we love them dearly, feed them better than we feed ourselves and dote on them (pets, brushings, claw clippings, etc.).
They are treasured! Thanks again to you and Lapcats for connecting us with them!

Liam and Andre Update!
Liam and Andre adopted together!
Liam is still hiding. But he 'almost' came out when he heard the wet food this morning. Andre is curious, and has been out more often. But still easily scared by outside noises. So under the couch it is! :) I think my counters will be having a fat accomplice in future days.
The boys are newly named....Chunky McStubby Tail and Oscar Von Wobble Snickers!
Such a rough life!!! ;) So happy to finally see them start to settle. And show their personalities. Andre is determined to smother me. And Liam will beg for all his days!!!! :)
Maurice and Clara Update!
Maurice and Clara (aka Sissy and Brody)doing well and being sweet kitties--bonded pairs need to stay together!
Ann and Chris
Laly in her new home. They had to trick her to come down stairs with treats but as soon as they did the adoption she started coming down on her own. Guess she wanted to make sure it was permanent :)
Grayson now goes by Earl Grey. Earl for short. He is sweet, very relaxed, loves to be petted, and likes to sit on laps. He uses the cat box and scratch pad. The introduction to Feather is going slowly. We don't want to rush it. We really want her to accept him. She hissed at him and is skittish. We are letting her get used to his smell and having him around. I'll keep you posted on how they get along.
Earl is fitting in great and has made friends with Feather.
I LOVE this Kitty! Not only does she have similar characteristics that my Calico Mel had (fearlessness, tenacious, very social, nosiness), she is as cute as a bug-in-a-rug! She has settled in nicely to her "suite": my entire 3rd level Loft/Master Bed & Bathroom. I made an appt with Dr Holmes at Natomas Animal Medical Center for Wednesday per instructions.
Thank you for Reece! She is filling the void in my heart!
Eva and Wally Update!
The moment my husband, son and I saw photos of Wall-E and Eva online, we had a feeling they would be a great fit for our family.
The two cats were rescued from a hoarding situation, then went to a shelter and then finally to Lapcats where they awaited adoption.
As soon as we met them it was love at first sight! Eva loves to cuddle and purr. She loves to give hugs and sleep near my chest. Wall-E is fun and frisky and loves to climb and chase toys. The cats had a little bit of a rough start in life but are now so happy.
We are so lucky to have them in our home and will love them furever! Thank you Barbara, Irene and everyone at Lapcats for all you do and for allowing us to connect with these sweet kitties!

Lance and Liam Update!
Just so you know we are taking care of the "Brothers". The picture is with Liam on my Gator. For some reason, he loves to ride on the Gator with me, wherever I go. He will stand on the seat with his front paws on the dash to make sure I am going where he wants. Today Nanc and I decided to do the spraying, it took 1.5 hours and he sat on the Gator the whole time. When he wants to check out what I am doing, he gets off and when I start it up again he is back on the seat with Nanc and I. This is a really strange cat but my best friend. Loves the horses, loves my Giant Schnauzer so different.
Regarding Lance, a little bit reserved but whenever I call him he is there and he loves his brother and he loves his sister Misty(that we rescued earlier). He is a very! pretty cat and loves being here.
For you sanity, because I don't trust the brothers at night we give them their treats before it gets dark and then they go into their "big crate with litterbox and slings that they seem to like"!!
Anyway, as you know I am a dog guy, but these two cats "have my heart"!! When I walk out in the morning to let them out, I just laugh as how much fun they bring to my life and Nanc's.
Elsa has definitely broken out of her shell and now loves to snuggle. She and our dog Molly have become great playmates. Every now and then she becomes "crazy cat" and really makes us laugh. We love her!
Mister and Sammie Update!
The boys are adjusting well. I missed a great photo op when they were running up, down, over and thru their "Disneyland" at record speed! It was the funniest thing I have seen in a long time! Here are a few pics. Mister is right at home but Sammy is still very cautious of people.
When I first saw Norm I thought this guy had such a laid back attitude & is so sweet & cute I think he will help my heart to heal.
Our kitty Oliver had passed on February 4th he was almost 16 & my heart was broken. I felt myself slipping into a depression I knew I'd have a hard time coming out of.
Norm touched my heart and has brought us a lot of joy in the two weeks we've had him at home with us. He's full of energy & loves to run through the house. His favorite toys are fetching balls & playing with long string. He's so funny, he picks up his balls in his mouth and he takes his string to his room with him like he's caught his prey.
Norm is still adjusting to our dog Daphne hopefully soon they will be good pals. Daphne wants very much to love Norm. He has had no problem making himself at home here & that makes us very happy.
Thank you LapCats for the wonderful work you do and for allowing me the privilege of being a volunteer. My husband told our neighbor he knows there are more cats in our future because I want to bring them all home!
Hodor (Stogie) Update!
Hodor is doing great and making himself at home! I thought u would enjoy these In the laundry in the fridge and pretty much all over the house...
Maizie (Carrie) Update!
We're sure loving our little Maizie (Carrie). AKA...."Maizala". And she's loving us right back! She comes to us for pets, sleeps on our bed every night, but also enjoys her "me" time. She goes nuts for the laser light, but loves to play with other things that we jiggle around. And so far she's been very social when friends come over.
Since its been cold in the mornings we've been using the fireplace, which is where she is now as I'm writing. She just lifted her head to say, "Yo, Barbara....this is a neat place!!
These dudes are pretty cool....Preston even let me play in the backyard, but he followed me everywhere!! WHATEVER!!"
Barbara, we so appreciate all you do for these kitties, and especially thank you for saving Mazie. We love her so❣
Preston and Diane
Fish and Holly Update!
Fish and Holly are doing great!!! We love them so much! (aka beegee and trouble)
Hope all is well,
Buzz and Ferdie Update!
Adopted Buzz Lightyear and Ferdie back in October. Both little munchkins then (Ferdie barely two lbs and Buzz about 4 lbs). Now both are happy, growing babies (Ferdie 7lbs and Buzz 9lbs) that love to play and have a strict nap ritual.
