Mya Image

Update on Mya... we've had this lovey pooch for almost 3 weeks now.  She is settling in nicely to her new home.  For a dog who does not like men, she has warmed up to her new Dad quite well- gets lots of hugs and cuddles and LOVES going for walks with him during the day when Mom is at work. She also let our adult son give her belly rubs!  When when Mom comes home after work she is like a "whirling dervish" - so excited!  She has started sitting up on her haunches to give Mom big hugs (learned that from a Beagle we dog-sit for friends).  Thanks NASAP for taking in this beautiful girl when her family was unable to care for her.  She is in a safe, loving forever home.  More updates soon. 

Jaida (now Aurora)

Jaida (now Aurora) Image

We are happy to say that Jaida has adapted fantastically to her new home with us and we couldn't be happier to have adopted her. We renamed her "Aurora" :) 

There haven't been any issues at all! She is a very healthy eater and is growing so quickly. She is amazing with vet trips and loves meeting new people and other animals. We've taken her on mini road trips to visit family and she loves riding in her carrier and the car puts her to sleep. It is incredible how smart she is too. She loves playing fetch with her toys and going outside; she starts purring when we put her harness on and is great on a leash. I wasn't expecting that with a cat! 

She has also developed quite the personality and will run around the house like mad until she tires herself out. Then she is very content snuggling up to her people for naps :) She also loves riding on our shoulders when we're in a new place or around the house, although that might be more difficult as she grows into an adult! 

We are so happy with Aurora, thank you NASAP! I hope that her siblings are doing just as well and that her momma finds a home soon too. I've attached a few pictures for you to see how she is doing :)

GiGi (now Cuddles)

Here is GIGI who is now called CUDDLES as she likes her cuddles. She loves her teddy.


Oscar Image

Oscar is doing very well. He is a really good kitty, always uses his litter box, doesn't ever scratch furniture, always uses his scratching pad, doesn't jump on anything even kitchen counters even if food is there ( he did a couple times but that was it), he hasn't even jumped on the couch yet. I think because of his past and maybe being in different places, he likes familiarity and a routine. It took him quite awhile to venture into the whole house, and even now he is very content to stay in areas that he feels most comfortable. But he is coming out of his shell more and more and has even come out when we have had company. He likes to sleep on the bed and every night he waits for me to come to bed so he can lie on me for little while till we go to sleep. He also likes to lie on me first thing in the morning until I get out of bed. He is eating and drinking very well. The only problem, and it's not a problem really, is that he had a very thick undercoat maybe from the winter and he is starting to lose that fur  so we have fur balls all over the house everyday that we have to sweep up. I have tried brushing him but he is a bit nervous so I am working with that slowly. All in all he is adjusting very well I think, he is no problem at all, and we are really enjoying him and his slightly quirky personality!

I will forward a couple of pics. One I took when he was lying on me, and the other is him looking out the window.

#happytails for Kingston! "Kingston is doing very well, he has taken over the house and our hearts. We go for walks every day (weather permitting) and he has been on 2 camping trips now, where he has come almost nose to nose with a deer, lots of swimming and lots and lots of hiking." 

Thank you for adopting and giving him a second chance! #nasapalumni #adoptdontshop #adoptionrules

It's going good!



Dolly Image

We couldn't have found a better match for our family - Dolly was nervous at first, which is to be expected but within a couple of days, she settled right in and made herself at home.  We took her to Mills Haven Vet Clinic in Sherwood Park for her follow-up check up and everyone there loved her as well.  She has a great view of our backyard from her cat tree and was fascinated by a squirrel that captured her attention a couple of weeks ago.  We have enjoyed her spunk, sweetness, gentleness, crazyness and pure entertainment sometimes - lots of laughs indeed, she is quite the character at times.  She loves to sleep tucked under the table on the cushy chairpads or inside her tunnel in her cat tree.  We love her playfulness and is such a delight to watch entertain herself with her tail, shadows, her own reflection or rip around the house at full speed.  She loves our company and has the cutest little mews that we have ever heard.  She is eating very well and knows when her soft food will be served and grazes throughout the day on her hard food and water (she likes to drink water from our glasses at the table, lol).  She uses her litter box faithfully and adapted so well when we moved it to the basement once she settled in.  We kept it in the main floor bathroom for the first couple of weeks until she felt comfortable with her surroundings. 

Dolly is an excellent choice for us and we love how she is relaxed and happy to be a part of our family!

Best Regards,
