Adoption Stories

Maggie

Maggie

Hello! I am Maggie! I am about three and a half years old, but I'm not very sure. I am very well behaved (wink, wink). I eat green beans and carrots! I am proud that I only know one command, which is SIT! I love toys. My favorite is my furry bone. I have a very early bed time which is about 7:00 PM. However, I wake my humans up very early!

When my humans first came to see me, I was thinking - who are these people and what are they here for? I also wanted to know why the girl with the glasses tasted so good. I am so happy my family found me! This writing thing is pretty tiring, I must take a nap.

We just wanted to thank you for letting us adopt Rosey! She is a wonderful addition to our family.

Domino

Domino

Just sending a big thank you for the wonderful new addition to our family- Domino. He's only been in our home over a week and he's been such a joy. He's spoiled rotten too! Lots of love, toys, food, water and plenty of goodies. He knows he's got us wrapped around his little paw too... He's so good with our grandbabies! He's so patient with them. Such a good boy. He greets us every day when we come home with "meows" and "purring"...

Thank you again!

Jackie

Jackie

Jackie's doing great! Her full name now is Empress Jackie Thunderpaws, because on her first day home she spent a solid ten minutes thundering up and down the stairs - I think she really likes being able to run and spread out here. 

I couldn't find the food the shelter was giving her but I had some Purina One and she seems to be doing okay with it. She's been getting her wet food twice a day since I noticed she doesn't drink that much water. 

She loves playing with her fish toy on a string that you guys gave us - that and her laser pointer and her pink ribbon are her favorite toys. She likes to hide under the bed and then I wiggle the ribbon in front of her and she pounces out from under the bed to get it! It's super cute. She's been really friendly and nice to all the visitors we've had over. Oh, and she sleeps with me at night by my feet a lot. I've discovered that if she runs out of food at night, she wakes me up by licking my face until I go get her more food - even if it's 6 am. 

She's very lovey and she purrs all the time and in the mornings when I get ready she follows me everywhere I go. She's amazing and I love her.

Oliver

Oliver

I'd like to share my adoption story with you. I volunteered this weekend at the Citadel event with Marilyn, one of your volunteers/staff. She encouraged me to write after talking about my cat, Oliver.

In December 2015 we adopted Oliver, who was at the time known as Remy. The HHS staff suspected he had some sort of abnormality with his vision. We didn't care and couldn't wait to take him home as he was the cutest, sweetest and most playful kitten.

His vision impairment was confirmed by two different vets. Oliver is almost blind but you would never know it. Two years later he is happy, healthy and active as ever. His other senses more than make up for his lack of vision. He can hear things we swear he shouldn't and he for sure smells his food being served when he's at the opposite end of the house. Oliver gets supervised exercise outside and the other day he was able to chase lightning bugs and trap them in the grass. He uses his whiskers to maneuver against walls and up stairs and even uses them to weave through chairs under the dining table. At times our family had to use sound (by tapping things) to help him identify where the top of a stair may be, or where the floor may be in relation to something he climbed on. This has helped him learn where things are and adapt to some low climbing and jumping.

Oliver is just an amazing cat now and is one of the loves of our life. Thank you and HHS for taking care of him before we could.

Reggie

Reggie

Just wanted to give you an update on Reggie (pka Tucson). He is adjusting to his new home pretty well. He loves my bed and has slept with me every night since I brought him home. He also has found a spot on our family room couch that he enjoys during the day:) Had a trainer out to meet him and she said he is smart (of course we knew that) and that it may take a while, but he can learn. He doesn't like loud noises and sometimes runs for home when we are out for a walk, but I think after he gets used to all the comings and goings of our neighborhood he will be fine. He is all scheduled for his treatments and has also has been checked out by my regular vet who says he is in good shape and should be fine after all the heart worm treatments.

Thank you again for all of your help. I'm so glad we brought this sweet boy home to be part of our family.

Rosa & Giorgio

Hello everybody who helped us (Rosa & Giorgio) find our forever home! We are loving our new home and wanted to show you how much. We are finding every hiding SPOT there is and our new human is always taking very good care of us. He plays with us, brushes and combs us all the time. Even when I, Giorgio, hid so well the day after coming home, he looked for me for 3 hours and was worried sick! I finally showed up on top of the refrigerator, out of a hole I found in the upper cabinets and was hanging out in the wall! The next time I tried to hide again, I was surprised to find that Daddy Jay had boarded up the hole. So now we don't hide and we come out as soon as we hear him come home from work and call us, which makes us all very happy we found each other!
