Kirk and Timothy wrote, Lola IS a showgirl. From the first moment we brought her home she was wrestling with our other rescue, Oscar who is 1.5yo. This is perfect. He needed a little sister to train and love and play with. It's like they've know each other for years! Perfect match this time!

Michelle wrote,  had been grieving the loss of my cat Baxter for four months. I watched the web site for a month while trying to decide if I was ready to adopt. On January 3rd, I saw Teddy's (formerly known as Cole) picture and I decided I had to meet him. Knowing he would likely be adopted quickly, I rushed to meet him. I knew right away Teddy was mine. I brought him home the next day and my world immediately became better because of him. He's the sweetest, funniest, cutest little guy I could have ever hoped for! He is right at home and now rules the house, along with his 14 yr old sister Josie. Teddy has put some pep in Josie's step and she is playing again! I'm completely in love with my Teddy bear and am so thankful for him.

Jenneth wrote, A follow up to my first submission - it's been over a year since I adopted these girls. I couldn't be happier! They are both very smart and eager to learn tricks and love to explore. Flora comes out to visit and bruxes and boggles (the ratty version of a kitty's purr) and both love a good scratch under the chin. They've never shown any aggression or fearfulness. Roxy is very quick to offer behaviors for food or attention. Sadly, I had to say goodbye to Ivy (Olga) in June of last year due to her health. I miss her sweet, quiet demeanor. Her last few months were spent in a loving home with room to run around and enjoy cuddling with Roxy and Flora.
