I am happy to say that Lucy – now named “Louise” – is so happy and healthy living with my partner and I. We graduated college and drove across the country to Phoenix to my partner’s residence. It has a big backyard and so many trails, parks and fields surrounding the neighborhood. Suffice to say Louise is very content.

Louise has gained so much healthy weight and a big appetite for play! She barely barks or makes a peep. She has a big smile and big droopy lips that makes her happy drool and water fly everywhere.

Relish is doing AMAZING! She does not leave my side!

She absolutely loves to play and will let you know when it’s play time. She loves the little mouse toys and will literally throw them up in the air… it’s just so adorable. She sleeps in bed with me every night under the covers in between my legs and will wake me up to let her under the covers.

She is more than just my little kitty, she is seriously my family! She filled the hole in my life I didn’t know I had!

We got Toby (formerly Raine) at such a great time. Being home quarantined with him has brought us so much joy. My daughter is doing school online so he gets a lot of love from us.

We go on long walks to nearby tails and he has a lot of energy which is great. Toby loves to say hi to every dog he sees, loves rocks (lol), loves to cuddle, enjoys laying in the grass to catch a tan, loves flowers, and is afraid of the beach water but loves to play in the sand.

He’s such a great dog!

We adopted Buzz back in February and he is now almost 6 months old. He has quite a personality and he and his older sister are inseparable.

Our love for him grows day by day, even though he is constantly stealing my socks!

“Billy” is doing fantastic.  Now known as Dexter,  he made himself quite at home from day one.  He had a good first checkup at the vet and is going back for shots in a a week.  We are doing really well with crate and potty training, while working on “sit” and “down”.  He has a ton of energy so we take a lot of walks, loves to play, snuggles, and visiting his grandparents. He hasn’t shown much fear at all, has done well meeting new people and really took to his new life quickly.

Frank (previously called Thor) is doing so well! He’s settling in nicely. He loves lounging on the couch and cuddling up with us. He is great with other dogs but goes absolutely nuts until he gets to play with them!
Overall, he’s doing great! This is him with his valentine’s bowtie on!
Thank you for all you did for us!

Sally is such a lil love bug!! I did not have any intentions of getting a female cat the day I adopted her. I’ve  had boys over the past 15 years, and I always found them more affectionate than females. I had females growing up and they loved my dad and my brother. Me not so much. 
But Sally picked me that day and I’m so glad she did. My Dad and I are so in love with her. She was so skittish (kind of still is with strangers, which is normal) when I brought her home (Jan 23rd) But 3 days later she was walking by our sides, laying on us  and she’s just the best! She’s very fast, can jump/leap very high, is playful and adorable.
Her markings are beautiful, and she looks like an exotic cat.

Punkin is doing fantastic. His new name is Finn. He is adjusting well to his new home, he loves his new fur-sister, Francesca! They love each other and play all day.

Finn is eating and sleeping great, he loves to snuggle in bed with Francesca, and is a very healthy boy. 

The experience I had with NEAS was wonderful.

Callie (formerly named Maggie) has been a wonderful addition to our family and she’s settling in nicely. When we changed her name to Callie and she started to answer to it almost immediately. 🙂  We had our first visit to the vet last week and everyone fell in love with her while we were there – she basked in the attention and gobbled up tons of treats!
Here are some of her favorite activities :
  1. Gnawing on chew toys and bully sticks (and our coffee table, but we’re working on that!)
  2. Snuggling with her new mom and dad – she loves to sleep under the blankets to keep her parents warm!
  3. Practicing her newly mastered “sit” command
  4. Running around the yard while carrying a pine cones, a frisbee or her squeaky ball

Biscuit is doing fabulously well!!  He has settled in, seems comfortable in the house as a whole  and is eating and sleeping well. We LOVE him – he’s an amazingly friendly, happy kitten. We couldn’t be happier.
A big adjustment in the household is that our cat Smoot, 6 years old, was not thrilled with the new addition at first. But Biscuit just kept being his friendly, goofy self, and Smoot got over it. The two are now co-existing peacefully and even chase each other a bit in play. They aren’t curled up together yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that happens before long. Biscuit is pretty irresistible all around. 
It’s a new funny story every day with Biscuit, from the fact that he chirps and trills (in addition to regular silly kitten meows) to the way he insists on speeding up and down stairs after us and after Smoot, even though he continues to be somewhat stair-challenged because of his height. His path down usually ends with a somersault, which doesn’t seem to bother him at all.
Neighbors have come by to meet him, and he is remarkably friendly even to strangers – he doesn’t run and hide, he stands his ground and puts on his brave face and looks ridiculously cute.
