Casanova Image

Hello everyone at NASAP.  I just wanted to send in a quick update on Casanova.  I adopted him in May of 2006 and it was the best decision I made.  It took about a month for him to come out of his shell.  He had to eat behind my bed and only ventured out at night.  Fast forward a little bit and Cass has now taken charge of everything!  He knows that he can get away with anything...all he has to do is look at me and give a little squeak and all is forgiven :)  He sleeps every night curled up next to me, purring like a motor.  All my friends say he has me wrapped around his paw...and they would be correct.  He is the purr-fect little guy, always waiting for me at the door when I get home.  He is a very vocal boy and loves to chat with anyone who is near him.  It was a huge adjustment to have a cat at home, but it was well worth it.  I hope he is as happy here as I am to have him.  Thanks NASAP!  Jocelyn and Casanova :)

It's finally official!! After many months of dithering and doddering my foster family finally did what I wanted them to do all along and they adopted me! Yeah!!  I'm so happy in my home that it would have been very very hard for me to adjust to a new place and make new friends. Now I can continue to play with all my friends at the fenced and gated off leash park and keep my doggy sisters close to me.  My routine, which is very important to me, will remain intact and I will always know what is going to happen next (just about anyway)!  I love my family and they love me; it just took them a long time to realize that they really ARE the best home for me and that they don't have to be perfect for me to be happy and well loved.  I am a challenge for sure but none of us would be happy if we couldn't stay together as a family.  Hip hip hooray I'm here to stay!!! :o) :o) :o)     


Cerys Image

Just wanted to give you an update on Cerys since we adopted her in April. She has made a wonderful transition to our family - we all love her and she is one happy cat. She set the dog (Angel - also a former NASAP adoptee) straight about boundaries right off the bat and they get along great - mutually ignoring each other. Soon after she became part of our family, we discovered that she is either partially or totally deaf. She does respond somewhat to loud clapping noises, but that's about it. She likes to sleep in odd places - on tables, in the bathroom sink (the attached photo is a classic) and a variety of other hard surfaces. She can't seem to resist knocking things off the edges of tables - like the cutlery when the table is set for dinner, or the bedside lamp when she is awake at 5 a.m. and wants to be fed. From the moment I saw her picture on the website I felt really drawn to Cerys. We are so very happy to have her with us and feel that she was meant to be part of our family. Thanks for the great work done by NASAP and all its foster families. Kathleen, Jocelyn and Elyse.


Ernie Image

Just thought I'd give you one last update on Ernie to prove you chose a good home for him.  He is doing great, such a smart well behaved dog, still lays down to eat.  Last time I weighed him he was 73 pounds haha, he's sure come a long way from his 2 pounds when he was first discovered.  I took him to the lake a couple times in the summer, he loved the water.  So far the cold weather hasn't bugged him one little bit,  he is just so happy with life and doesn't have a care in the world.

Just dropping you a line to let you know that Sherman (now Peeko) is doing fine.  He has settled in very well and is the new boss of the house. Thank you for everything,
Randy and Miriam


Gizmo Image

Hi there,
We're the folks that adopted Gizmo from you oh, a bit ago now.  sorry it's taken so long to get a picture of Gizmo back to you. Gizmo and his brother Stewie are getting along just fine.  It was funny to watch them the first few days...  they weren't too sure what to think of each other at first.. they followed each other around but as soon as the other one looked at them they'd get scared and back off.  Once in a while a hiss would pop out but for the most part they figured each other out pretty quick.  Now they race up the stairs they race down the stairs then down the stairs to the basement then all the way back up stairs.  They're crazy cats.  He's got a winky eye that the vet says is likely the feline version of herpes but it doesn't seem to bother him too much unless we're trying to put the goop in his eyes, but he knows he gets treats when he's done and sometimes he's purring before we're done because HE KNOWS. Anyhow, hope you like the picture.

Cooper (now Lonesome)

Just want to let you know that Lonesome aka "Cooper" is doing real good.  He is awesome smart.  He gets along favously with Whip, my red heeler.  Whip has taught him to leave the yard to go to the bathroom (go out in the field or the bush) and so far he has not ever left the place.  Lonesome thinks he should protect me from my horses though, but we are working on that.  He terrorizes my old cat but my cat doesn't back down so all is good.  Lonesome is awesome in the house, learned very quickly what rooms he is allowed in or not, and when coming from outside he sits by the door until I tell him it's o.k. (in case his feet are wet or muddy).  My Mom and him get along real well too.  So far so good.  I will have to send some pictures when I get a chance here.

Laylah (now Lucy)

Dear Angela - thank you so much for Lucy.  She is a doll.  She's full of pep and fun, go, go, go and then she crashes.  Molly is much more active and enjoyes playing with her a lot.  In fact, Molly is not sleeping nearly as much as she has been.  Lucy is sleeping fine, only had to get up with her the first two nights and now dhe sleeps all the way through.  We are giving her lots of walks, playtime and, of course, lots of love.  She is very sweet and affectionate, lots of snuggles and kisses.  She can sit on command and knows her name.  I think she is very bright, quick to learn, and we are training her constantly.  We love having her in our lives and have no regrets whatsoever about adopting her.
