Daisy

Daisy is doing well over here. Upon getting to know here, we have discovered that she is not a particularly cuddly cat, though she will agree to be picked up and held for short periods. She continues to be somewhat timid, so we try not to move too fast around her. She has not become friends with our little dog--they continue to be wary of one another. However, each of them realizes that the other is basically harmless, and they behave a little bit like siblings--intentionally getting in each other's faces and taking a swing at each other once in a while. Early on, Daisy hissed at the dog, but that phase appears to be largely over now. The same weekend that we got Daisy, we also acquired an eight-week-old kitten, and Daisy welcomed her (Dutch is her name) immediately. They keep each other company, chase each other and wrestle, and keep each other warm. My daughter Andrea says almost daily, "I love my cats. --Thanks so much for letting us get them."

Daisy is rather moody at times. When we touch her and she's not into it, she lets us know by swatting at us or biting us. This happens with some consistency when she's hungry. Each of our pets have very different personalities, but I find the contrast an interesting part of daily life. We've had Daisy for almost three months now, and she has grown into a fairly large cat. We weighed her shortly after she got here, and she has gained more than three pounds since (making her somewhat larger than our little dog). After very quick weight gain, we cut the food back (we're a bit new at this cat thing), but she has continued to gain weight without appearing fatter, so I suspect she is still maturing into her adult size (a little over 10 pounds now).

Overall, I think everyone is adapting well, and we're enjoying life with Daisy, Dutch, and Sasha (dog). I have attached a picture of Daisy and Dutch in a common resting spot and one of Daisy with Andrea (taken two minutes ago).

Thanks for asking!

It's been about three months since I've adopted Dolly (now Butterscotch aka "Butters") and she's fit in quite nicely into our family.  Her sisters Phoebe and Maya (also NASAP alumni) are still adjusting to this new high-energy, rambunctious kitty but once in a while you'll see all of them together overtaking the cat perch.  Overall, everyone is healthy and happy together.

Thanks NASAP for this wonderful addition to my family.

Hi,

I wanted to let you know how Mr. Harley is doing. GREAT !!! He settled in in about 2 days and is now one of the gang! He and little Lily are having so much fun and entertaining us a lot. He staked out his claim on our bed at night and enjoys lots and lots of attention. He is such a precious little guy and we are so happy that he is sharing his life with us. We can't thank you two enough for all the wonderful care and love you gave him. Please check in on him anytime you wish.

THANK YOU

Sherrill and Harley

Bella say "Hi" She misses everyone and wants to thank you for giving her such great love & care on her 2nd. chance for a home. She loves going to work at the shelter as a very wanted! fur child. Bella loves the Youth and they her.  She loves going for walks in her forest neighbourhood. She also really likes going for car rides to the country where she really loves chasing squirrels and birds :)  Bella hopes all of the animals get great homes (people) like she did. ~ Take Care as the work you are all doing is "Wonderful!"

Wyatt

Hello,

Thanks for checking in. Wyatt is a tremendously funny and an affectionate cat. He makes me laugh a lot. He gets along great with my other cat. My Mom said the other day that he sure is comfortable here and that is apparent by his happy attitude. Of course, finding his toy in the middle of the night and bringing into my bedroom to play with is not what I’d call good timing, but he seems to think it’s a good idea.  Ha Ha Ha  It’s really nice to have such a playful cat once again since my old guy (20) mostly sleeps. Wyatt might be a little bored, not having someone to really play with, but seems quite content to let me drag a string around to chase LOL. He eats well, uses the litter box perfectly, and does the happy dance often, on whatever piece of cloth he can find (well, I call it his happy dance, but it’s the kneading action of many a cat) LOL. He had a bit of an upper respiratory issue again, but that seems to have cleared up with meds. His mouth is healed and his appetite is great (gotta watch he doesn’t get fat though…he loves his food)!

All in all he has moved right in – both into my home and my heart and I’m so glad I made the decision to adopt him. He truly is a sweetheart.

Thanks so much! Here’s some pictures soon after I got him.

Hello!! 

They're doing just wonderful. Full of cuddles and love. They've gotten too comfortable even, and Elsa has taken to climbing on the fridge and pretty much everywhere else hahaha. They've adapted wonderfully though :)

Jace (now Chuck Bass)

Hi thanks for checking in on us.  Jace is doing really well and we love him and I think he is starting to love us. His name got changed to Chuck Bass, the handsome dark haired young man on the show Gossip Girl (my daughter considers him her cat, hence the name choice).  Seems like every day more of his personality comes out.  Chuck and my other cat Rosie after about a week started to tolerate each other and now have become good buddies, playing, running around and just hang out.  I have attached a few photos of Chuck and our other cat Rosie

Thanks for letting us adopt him

Paris (now Pixie)

Paris is now Pixy and has probably gained 3 lbs. and is doing just fine. She is smaller than the resident cat but does not lack in feistiness and they get on just fine.  We are delighted to have her.
