I just wanted to give you an update on Linus aka
Luke (Luke Skywalker named by my kids). Luke is a wonderful addition to our family. He and Lexi are getting along
fantastically. They play constantly. After the initial awful meeting, I never thought Lexi would warm up but they
are quite close now. I've included some pics of the little cuties. As you can see, Luke has bulked up quite a
Thank you so much -
Good morning Cami,
I just wanted to let you know that my new little girl is settling in and
a good time!! She is a little spitfire and never sits still
unless she is conked out!! :) I'm having a blast
watching her...she is
such a crackup!! I named her Emerson, Emmy for short. :) My other cat
is making friends (slowly) and I know they'll have a good time
Thanks again for my new baby and
for taking good care of your kitties!!
Have a good day!!
I'm writing you to give you an update on Kisi. She was been with
us a week now and is finally starting to warm up to us and the house. I was worried she wasn't eating or drinking for a long
time because she would never come out of hiding while Brandt and I were around. However, last night while we were home, she
came out from her hiding spot and started eating food and drinking water in the open. As long as we didn't make eye contact
with her, she was content with being in the open. She even used the litter box with us present. She has also turned in the
quite the snuggler when its quiet and there isn't a lot going on. She laid on my bed with me and let me pet her and cuddle
with her for 20 minutes the other day and today she laid there with me for about 40 minutes. She really loves to be petted
and loved on, especially having her chin scratched. She has lost some weight but I think now that she is getting more comfortable,
she will start putting it back on. She is still trying to snuggle up to our other cat but Frankie still isn't sure about her.
He doesn't mind her being next to him, as long as she isn't touching him. However, I think soon they will be snuggling together
too. He's starting to let her closer and closer and has stopped hissing at her when she comes around him. Thank you for such
a great kitty. I think she will always be shy but I am confident that with some more time and lovin that she will start
to be braver and like us more and more. Thanks again! :)

Doodles is adjusting well to her new home.
She is getting lots of cuddles and love here. Ginger adores her and gave her a tongue bath last night. Doodles even purred.
Ginger seems to think doodles is her new baby.
Thanks for finding her for us and bringing her out to Petco so we
could adopt her!

It's been a month now, and I wanted to tell you, that his name
It came to me while I was trying to feed Kota." If starvin Marvin would move,
I could feed you." You didn't tell me what a chow hound, he is. He even checks
for food. It's pretty funny watching him do that. He even prefers
to drink from her water bowl,which
is raised. He stretches up to get to it.
What a little card he is! I am starting
to worry that he might get fat, he's
really packed on the weight. He's doing very well and seems
happy. Kota has
taken to him, and we are a happy family! They even sleep together!
Well, take care and thank-you
for all you do!!!

|Hi!!! You probably dont remember
me, I adopted two little one's from you, a brother and sister, Pantera and Vixen. Remember a couple
of ladies with a red car leaking gas, who adopted two little black cats? Well thats
me. I am sending you pictures like I promised, and I want to thank, you we love them.
I’ve been wanting to write to you for a long time, but what better day to
tell you how thankful we are than Thanksgiving!! We adopted the big black and white cat that you called Luke. We were all
ready to choose a kitten when you took us to a different building to introduce us to more cats. Luke was terrified but sweet
and I fell in love. When I brought my kids back to make the final choice they fell in love with him, too. My husband really
didn’t want us to choose an adult cat so we were a little worried about how he would feel about Luke.
We named him Neville, after the character in the Harry
Potter books who is fearful and bumbling, but in the end turns out to be one of the bravest and most noble. For 4 weeks we
kept him in our laundry room. We would spend hours of each day coaxing him out from behind the dryer so that we could brush
him and give him attention. Our dog was really curious about him as she loves cats, but he inflicted deep scratches on a couple
of us when we were bringing him into the house for the first time and Bella came out to say hello. So, we kept them separate
for 4 weeks, letting them smell each other in the same areas. My husband was annoyed.
Then we started letting him into the children’s rooms with
supervision. We even caught my husband snuggling with him in our bed. Pretty soon, we had him visiting all the rooms of the
house when the dog was outside. The laundry room was still his safe haven. The day we introduced him to the dog, Bella was
very sweet. It was like she understood that he was afraid. She stayed really calm and let him inch closer to her to sniff
and explore. They’ve been fine together ever since. His personality started to show through and we decided that we had
misnamed him. He was a stinker! We don’t allow animals on our counters or tables. The first (and only) time I caught
him on our table I just said, “No,” in a firm, but not loud, voice. He jumped right off the table and as soon
as my back was turned he attacked my leg leaving me bleeding. It was very funny, if painful. He definitely meant to cause
pain, and he definitely meant to do it in a sneaky way. He’s very smart!! He’s never again been on our counter
We started referring to him
as our juvenile delinquent. Our lost boy. He needed lots of love and the proof of time that we weren’t going to abandon
him or hurt him. So, we’ve all, husband included, just poured on the love and affection. He has responded with loyalty
and affection in turn. We thought that perhaps he never learned that he can control his claws, but he hasn’t taken his
claws out at us in several months now. He communicates pretty clearly what he wants and needs (He’s so smart!).
He hasn’t done anything sneaky or aggressive
in several months. He and the dog are good friends and are affectionate with each other. He seems really happy and we are
so happy with him. In fact, just a few days ago my husband said while snuggling him, “I love this cat!”
It’s a great adoption success story for our
little lost boy. We are so thankful for him. He’s so full of affection and real cat love. We look forward to long lives
together. Thank you for what you are doing, Cami!
the funny story with this pic is that i just left my room
to play with a friend and when i went into check on him cause i didn't hear him and to remind you i put his head on the
pillow and covered him up with the blanket i didn't expect him to stay but we were cuddling together and my mom got this
pic of when i walked in the room he was like that!!! lol !!!
Alexis and family
I absolutely love my little Mia. I have been filled with so much happiness since
I have her and I no longer feel lonely. I can not imagine ever living with out a pet in my life again. When I left my husband
two years ago he kept our two dogs and that had placed a hole in my heart. Mia has filled that hole. She is very much loved.
Thank you Cami. What a wonderful thing you are doing with your kitty rescue. I am sure you will appreciate the pictures of
Take care - Anne
Hi Cami, you probably don't
know this but exactly a year ago today, you delivered a special package to our door. You called her Baby at the time,
we named her Kerrie.
her first few days with us under the bed, coming out to eat and use her litter box when she thought we were sleeping.
Eventually she ventured out, but spent alot of her time diving back under there if one of us walked around. Today she
has the run of the house, and even comes out to see who rang the doorbell, or who pulled into the driveway. We are her
staff, feeding her only Fancy Feast Chicken w/gravy and Temptations treats, and opening the door for her when she wants in
or out. Not spoiled, our kittie...
Kerrie will never be a lap cat, although she does sleep next to my pillow every night. She will not let me
rest my hand on her while we sleep, but she will seek out my hand and sleep on it, purring loudly until she falls asleep.
When she wants me to get up and feed her breakfast, she will nibble on my hair or lick my nose. She hates being picked
up, but will rub on my legs once in awhile to let me know she does love me. Other than that, she is not a touchy-feely
cat. She absolutely LOVES to play with her many many toys, especially her laser light and the shoe string she got out
of my closet her first week here.
adores G.A. from afar, sitting in the hallway watching him shave at the bathroom mirror. She hates for him to be outside
without her and will cry loudly to be let out if she sees him in the yard. If she is sitting in her chair, he can pet
her from time to time, as long as he doesn't linger too long. And she loves sitting in his spot on the couch, or
at his seat at the table.
to take the time to thank you for Kerrie and for your wonderful cause. All the cats that have been in and out of your
care are very blessed, just as we have been blessed with Kerrie.
G.A. & Jean
Good morning Cami
I just wanted to send you a quick update on our little piece of heaven. He is such a character.
There is not a day that goes by that he does not warm our hearts, and fill us with smiles and laughter. I want to thank
you for the wonderful job you are doing with these animals in need. You are amazing.
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to adopt our first kitty!! J “Buddy”, while a good name wasn’t really fitting for him, so we renamed him to “Felix”,
after the Mariner’s pitcher of course. He acts kind of kingly and Felix Hernandez often gets called King Felix, so it
fit on both that fact and the fact that “Felix” just sounded like a good kitty name. J
I purchased one of Cami's rescue cats and just wanted to let everyone know that she is awesome.
(both the cat and Cami) Dot is exactly who Cami portrayed her to be and my small dog is in heaven having a housemate
I just wanted to let you know that Black Bear is doing great in his new home. I attached a couple picturers,
one is our friend's 3 yr old carrying him around and the other is him cuddling with our other cat. He adjusted pretty
fast and still learning our rules, but he is very well-behaved kitty. Thanks again!
Cami, I just wanted to say "You are great!" :) These are some pictures of
our little Angel....
she and Meredith love each other! :)
