Squash & Gourd are now known as Jennfer Jareau (aka. JJ or pretty girl) and Dr. Spencer Reid (aka. Spencer/Spence or boy).  Our shy, undersocialized kitties are doing very very well.  They had to be kept apart for almost two weeks due to Spencer’s cold, but now that they are together, they couldn’t be happier. They love playing with toy mice and chasing balls and strings – and wrestling with each other. They also love to cuddle with each other, and even their new momma. We just love having these two as a part of our family and look forward to them continuing to get comfortable in their new home. Thank you for helping us find these two, they really are the perfect pair for our new family.

Snow is doing great! She is absolutely adorable and has such a unique personality. She has gotten really attached to both my husband and I and loves to be cuddled and held and enjoys giving us kisses. She has a wand toy with a fish on the end of it that she drags around in her mouth like a baby doll – even though she’s nearly destroyed it, she still prefers it to the other wands and toys we’ve bought her! We had a great experience at Northeast Animal Shelter and appreciate everyone’s help and guidance. She’s the perfect cat for us and we really love her!

We adopted Penelope July 31st 2018 from the Northeast Animal Shelter. She has brought so much love and happiness to our family. I truly believe she picked us. She absolutely loves the car and playing football with my husband and son. She loves to snuggle up with us every night and take up the whole bed. I don’t know how we lived without her and now we couldn’t imagine life without her. Thank you so much NEAS for everything you do for these beautiful fur babies and giving us the best gift ever!

Everything has worked out perfectly for Violet and us. She has a new name, Minerva, and we kept Violet as her middle name. Minerva is Professor McGonigal’s name and also my daughter’s great great grandmother’s too.  She is adjusting well and really bonded to all four of us in her own little way. She loves sitting on my little one’s lap while they do homework together. She is so lovable and good with everybody, just the right mix of friendly, but not running through and under your legs every time you take a step. Thanks so much for all you do! Your work is important both to the families and also all those animals that you have helped through the years. Thanks NEAS!

When my beloved 19 year old cats both died in the past year I was very sad. They were alumni of Cape Ann Rescue and we adopted them as kittens. One for each daughter. Tiger & Ruby were always there for my girls as they grew up. And they were there for me when the girls grew up and moved to far flung places.
Last December my husband and I decided we wanted to adopt grown cats as they are less popular. We came in one day and we met 2.5 year olds Prince & Princess. They were very shy and not very responsive. They had been neglected and really didn’t know how to accept affection let alone enjoy it & return it. A year later they still won’t let us hold them & they won’t come on our laps. We renamed them Buddy & Belle. Belle follows my husband everywhere. She’s always at his side. And Buddy is my boy. He loves long petting sessions complete with lots of purring.
I still miss my Uber affectionate kitties of yesteryear. But I love our new babies. And I know that relationships with cats take time. They open up more and more as time goes by. I’m looking forward to teaching these two lost kitties what unconditional love is. And learning how they will open up and trust – as the years go on. Thanks for helping us give these loves a new life. You do great service!

Fredrick Diamond, previously know as Kaloop, is doing great!! He took very little time bonding with me. He is my shadow. We started training after about a couple weeks, just so he really knew I was for real and safe. I know he was returned once before. He loves every animal he comes across, although get very very excited when he is meeting a new furry friend. Squirrels and chipmunks are his kryptonite, he can’t resist the urge to chase them. Everyone that meets him can’t believe how snuggly he is. It’s his gift to help people emotionally. Such a big Freddy Bear!!! He can be very mischievous. I laugh because he grows lips when he wants to sneak away with something he knows he shouldn’t have. It’s like he doesn’t even open his mouth, he just extends his lips, grads what he wants and sneaks away(of you are looking or not). House breaking is a process with any animal, but he’s doing great. I taught him to tell me by barking, that’s it’s time to go out. He sits, waits, lays down, go ahead, and paw. He’s so smart. He also has a pack he can go run with near my parents house. 4 other dogs. It’s great. He is my second adoption from NEAS and I’m so thankful for both, my past dog and Fred.

I adopted my best bud Timber October 2020, and he’s been the light of my life ever since! He was the first card I pulled when I went to the shelter in search of a companion during the pandemic, and the rest is history! With a lot of training time, puzzle toys, and chew toys, he’s living the life of luxury and adjusting to his only-dog lifestyle beautifully. He absolutely loves running through the snow every morning and night, meeting friends at the park, playing tug-of-war, searching for socks and hair scrunchies, and learning new tricks to show off his smarts! Thank you NEAS for pairing me up with my best friend!

Charlotte’s name was changed to Tama (pronounced: taahhhma). She is so spoiled & so loved. She’s such a little weirdo! She has fur, but yet is so sensitive to cold. She must wear clothes to have her morning & afternoon naps. (She’s in for a very rude awaking this winter! I have a feeling her sherpa-lined hoodie is NOT going to be enough!!) She is definitely a ‘bush dweller’ kitty. She prefers to burrow & be in things rather than to be high. We just love her so so much! Thank you NEAS!!!

Charlie has been doing well. He is playful, lovable, and allows me to pick him up any time. Even when he knows he’s been naughty! We have been able to trim his claws, which is great! He gives high 5s, which is super adorable! The first week at home he suckled with us quite a bit. Now he does it sometimes when we go to bed at night. He is doing as I write this and he sounds like a diesel truck. When he’s done, he usually comes to my lap to chill. We love him so much!

Brownie, now Stella, is doing so great!! She has settled right in! She plays great with other dogs; big and small. She sleeps in a comfy crate at night in mom and dad’s room with no complaints! Potty training is going well with very few accidents. She is a cuddler and loves napping in your lap or very close to you. She loves to wake up the kids in the morning in their beds (after she’s done her potty outside of course!) We absolutely love Stella and are so grateful to NEAS for making this whole process a great experience!! Thank you and Merry Christmas!
