Cassandra wrote,  We are so blessed to have Chewie join our family. He is so adorable and sweet. Just a little love bug. The children are nuts about it. He's housetrained and leash trained. We couldn't ask for a more perfect pet. 

Minnie 1 16C

Gina wrote,  Minnie love to play so much! She and the other cat are enjoying each others company and are bonding quickly. She has bonded with us quickly and likes to play fetch. She is so great! 

Hazy 1 16aC

Hazy 1 16bCNathan wrote,  After a few weeks of settling in, Hazy has opened up as a very confident, playful, and affectionate cat! She is sweet and vocal (though soft-spoken), and she spends almost all of her time sleeping or playing nearby me when I'm home. She loves lounging in her bed, jumping in boxes, and casing her foam ball toys. Most of all, I can tell she loves me, and I'm thrilled to return that affection with lots of petting and playing.

His second favorite is to chase after all of his toys. He's super playful and is adjusting really well to his new home. We're so thrilled to welcome Bruce and to have him a part of our life. And he has the cutest underbite ever!

Alexa wrote, Ellie has been such a joy since we adopted her in October. She always makes us laugh no matter what she's doing. Ellie loves to be right next to us, or even right on top of us! She's a big lap dog. Ellie also likes to "hold hands", she's very sweet, and is learning new things very quickly. Some of Ellie's favorite things are playing with her brother Thunder, her stuffed toy Miss Piggy, her kong, and going to the Dog Park. Ellie is so sweet and adopting her was one of the best things I have ever done. She makes me so happy, and she makes me smile every time I see her smiling face and wagging tail. We love her so much!
