Lindsay wrote,  Frisco is really enjoying his new home as well as the visits to his new grandma's house! He loves his big brother Kobra, who also came from CAP. Im so happy to have this playful little man in my life to love and cuddle with. And I think it is safe to say he feels the same about me.

Kristi wrote, This story is a long time coming, but better late than never. My boy Ceaser left me for the rainbow bridge on 3-7-15, and was almost 20 years old! I just wanted you to know that he was the best (and oldest) cat I have ever had! Thanks for entrusting him into my family's care. He lived a long wonderful life and brought us so much joy. Amazing after his humble beginnings of being found on the side of HWY 249 with his littermates in a box, dumped with no parents and way too young for weaning. Forever Orange, our boy, we love you and will see you again one day. And if I ever do decide to get another kitty, I will definitely come to CAPS. (Photo taken 1998)

 Brittany wrote, We came in searching for a companion and play mate for our 6 month old kitten. Initially, we were planning on just looking and then making a decision at a later date. But, when I saw those little paws and saw how much this little black kitten had to say, we knew he was a perfect fit. Now that he has come home with us and stolen our hearts, his favorite activities are playing chase with his sister Nala and cuddling with Mom and Dad. We are so glad we brought him home and he has been such a great addition to our family.

Lilly 3 15 D

Megan wrote, We adopted Lilly when back in December when she was only 8 weeks old. She has grown so much in these past few months! She has learned to sit and shake and is just a ball of puppy energy with sweetness galore! We love her so much!

 Christine wrote, Lucky Dog is definatly lucky or should I say we are for being able to adopt her. We knew that when we were ready to become pet owners adopting would be something important to us. The day we brought Lucky Dog home and ever since then our lives have been filled with happiness. She gets three walks a day and loves going to the dog park weekly. Her favorite hobby is chewing up ropes and toys daily. She is such a happy dog and we love having her as part of the family.

So we tried everything to deal the allergy. Now he still has some symptoms but its much better. Now Simon is a happy kitten and we are happy parents.
