Where do I begin? MC Jin stole our hearts within seconds of us meeting him. He licked our hands, played with us, and let us rub his belly at the shelter. We were in love and couldn’t have been happier to have him in our lives! He’s been in our lives for over a month now and is very comfortable in our house. He loves to play and hang out with us, and mostly wants to be in the same space as us. He sleeps with us every night, loves cuddling and belly rubs. In our very biased opinion, we think Jin is the cutest, best, sweetest, most playful kitten we could have asked and we so thankful to NEAS for brining him in our lives! We grew him a small patch of cat grass and he loves curling up on it, even if he doesn’t fit!

What can I say about my baby Bella! I took her home from Northeast 11 years ago, she was so extremely nervous, but within days her personality started to shine. She has been my love my companion and my absolute best friend ever since. Now that she’s in her golden years she’s very sassy, a real queen of the castle. She enjoys swimming, kisses for treats, and looking out her window for all those squirrels. She brings me so much joy each and every day!

Everest is doing well. We absolutely love him and he has become a wonderful addition to our family. He is doing really good on his potty training. He is getting to know our kitties.  Our cat, Mortimer, who we thought would be the toughest sell — has actually been the one to spend the most time with him. The other two are coming around, but slowly. He is the sweetest!!! Thank you for all you do and for bringing Everest into our family!!

Norwin, who is now Reno, is doing good! He definitely tries to bully our other dog, Sweety, around. He does this twist around when they play and gives her a little shove with his behind. It’s so funny! He loves when I pick him up. He gives lots of kisses! He loves taking your things, like shoes and when he does, we say “is that yours” and he looks at us with a side eye and stops. He loves food. He loves sleeping in our bed at nighttime. He can’t get up on it yet so he jumps and barks when it’s bed time so that we can help him into our bed. He has his own but prefers ours. We just love him so much! Thank you NEAS.

We are LOVING our little Wyatt! He’s grown a lot and I think is going to be a very tall cat!  He has adapted well and loves being around people, sleeping with us at night time, eating and plays like a feen!!! A funny story in our first week with the Mister; we had gone out for a few hours at night and when we returned the sneaky Mr. Wyatt had climbed on top of the bar top counter, grabbed the bread and dragged it into the dining room, opened the bag and ate some slices! He also got into the bagel bag and ate half a bagel!!!! He must be a carbs guy! He loves watching hockey! We really love him and can tell he really loves us too! Thank you for letting us take this cutie home! He is totally apart of the family and we couldn’t be happier.

Lola adjusted pretty quickly to our home, sleeping through the night and eating very well! She is now 75 pounds and we did the DNA test and learned she is Shepard lab mix. She is very smart, confident and energetic. She loves other dogs!! This past winter with her was awesome! We spent most of it walking at either Good Harbor Beach or Long Beach where she was able to interact with many other dogs! This summer, we have gone to Ravenswoods and to Wingaersheek beach where we learned that Lola LOVES to swim. We have spent countless summer evenings with Lola cruising around on the boat and playing fetch into the water. She really has been the best dog and we have loved every second of owning her. She does go to daycare once a week and she loves it there too. Thank you for giving us our little angel!

Shasta is doing great! She made herself at home right away and has been such a sweetheart. She’s had a huge appetite and always sleeps with us through the night. She did get a little upper respiratory after getting home, but she got over it in a couple days. The shelter was great and very helpful with how to handle her cold. We really appreciate NEAS for helping us find the right kitten. Thanks again for all your help!

Joey is doing great! He settled in very quickly! He loves to cuddle and give kisses. He’s extremely friendly and sociable. We just adore him! He sleeps between us in bed or above me on my pillow. We got him some toys he loves to play with, and is gradually losing some weight. Overall he is doing very well! We are so thankful to NEAS.

This is the picture of Bentley the first day he came to the shelter. I knew from the first day that he was going to be mine. I took him home to foster him and the rest was history. He has given me so much love and affection. I could not ask for more. He cuddles with me when we watch tv at night and loves his walks. I can’t think of anything better than the way he greets me when I come home each day. I love this little boy so much. I can’t imagine my life without him.

Katia originally came into my home as a foster as the pandemic was starting to really hit resulting in the closure of most shelters. Katia was pretty shy and reserved and I completely respected that no question with my goal being for her to feel comfortable and safe. She has made INCREDIBLE progress and I honestly find myself dumbfounded everytime I look back on the first weeks of her being into my home. I can not brag enough about how far she has come for running and bolting with even the slightest of movements to getting to that point where she feels confident and secure enough to jump up onto my bed and rest herself whether it be between my legs to me waking up and she is sprawled out lying flat on my back. I can not say this enough for how blessed and fortunate I am to have been able to be that person whom she feels safe with and to be able to have provided her with a home that she can call her own.  

I adopted Katia and Katia has most definitely adopted me. I knew she was there to stay as soon as I said outloud “I love you”… NEAS saves lives as it has saved mine <3
