Pandora Image

Just thought I'd send you an update and a few pictures of Pandora. She seems to be settling in a little bit each day and getting used to our family's daily routine. The boys enjoy playing with her, petting her, and picking her up and Pandora seems to be getting used to their exuberence. She has been very gentle with them. She lets both of them pick her up - something which Joshua insisted that I get a picture of. Michael was thrilled when she sat on his lap the other evening. I am teaching Joshua how to play with her - Michael seems to already know how. Rob took a great little video of her chasing the light reflected from his watch on the wall.

Her favorite spot during the day seems to be on top of our loveseat. She likes to sit on the loveseat, looking out the picture window, whapping her tail and chirping at the birds and the occasional squirrel and rabbit outside.

I took her to the vet clinic for her check-up on Wednesday - all was well and she is up to 4.2 kg (9.2 lbs) - although she was not too impressed with me for taking her there and went to her safe spot for a couple of hours afterwards. I have learned to look up instead of down to find where she is hiding. Her safe spot seems to be on the top shelf of our storage shelf in the basement on our old backpacks (right near the ceiling). She seems to go there to rest during the afternoon. We are constantly amazed and amused at where she has decided might be a good place to jump!

She seems to have settled in at night - she sleeps on the bed for part of the night and gets up with Rob at 5:45 in the morning. We sometimes hear her playing in the middle of the night. She flopped down right on my feet last night to sleep. The other morning she snuggled under the covers next to me when the alarm went off. She also joins us when Rob and I sit down on the couch in the evening - picking a lap to sit on or sometimes right between us. And, she usually comes up for some extra
snuggles and belly rubs after I come back after being out.

I want to thank you so much for being such a good foster mom to Pandora and taking such excellent care of her. She is such a beautiful, warm, affectionate, trusting cat and she makes such a wonderful addition to our family. She will be well-loved and taken care of.

Charlie Image

As promised here are some pictures of the boys. Charlie is doing fantastic, he is a truly awesome little guy. Freddie adores him and they spend their days "being boys". We did lose our little Shorkie girl "Baby" to cancer in February and Charlie has been a godsend. He loves to go on his 2km walks with Dad every day and explore the world. He is fascinated by birds and loves cats, it's almost like he is still a puppy discovering the world.

Yours truly,

Linda & Dwayne

Timothy is doing awesome.  He fits right in and is a derpy little fella.  He finally found his jumper and can get up on things easier. He had his first experience outside on the leash yesterday...he was frightened at first but once he figured it out he loved it and slept all night!

I will say he's a bit annoying as his clock must be on standard time cause he likes to wake us up an hour before we have to get up with kisses and nudges.  He doesn't like to sit still!!!

We love him to bits!!!

Carly, Dave and the boys


Sookie Image

Our new addition Sookie joined our family over Easter and is settling in nicely.  Everyone, including Sookie, is thrilled!

Thought I'd send you a few more pictures since Loki is now a year old (still playful as a kitten though). His new addiction is playing in our soaker tub - we turn the tap on really gently and he will literally play in there forever, he's soaked at the end and enjoys walking around spraying every mirror he can but it's worth it because he's just so darn cute haha.

Sophie (formerly Kate)

It has been awhile now that I have wanted to send an update on Sophie (formerly Kate). We adopted her back in 2011 but her personality has continued to grow and change over the years. When we first brought her home she was a quiet cat that loved to be around you. She was a shadow, following you from room to room. If you were on the couch she would be curled up beside you. The first night we brought her home I will never forget. We settled into bed for the night and Sophie crawled in between our pillows and started to purr. We started to laugh because her purr is as loud as a diesel truck!

Over the years she has come to be the biggest lap cat. She is on your lap before you have time to get comfortable.
She is also very outgoing, being the first to greet anyone that comes to the house.Sophie spends her days sleeping in the sun, evenings on you lap and nights sleeping on the corner of our bed. She even doesn't mind being picked up every now and then. Sophie has even gained a partner in crime, Oliver, they are always getting into some type of mischief around the house.

Thank you NASAP for rescuing Sophie so she could rescue me after the loss of my first cat. It was love at first sight. Keep up the great work!



Evie Image

Hi Everyone,

I thought I would send you an update on Evie!

I adopted Evie just a month ago, but it seems like it has been much longer than that. I cannot tell you what a joy she has been! She gets along fabulously with our other black lab; they spend their days running, playing, and napping in front of the fire place. Evie learned crate training very quickly (less than a weekend), has learned many new tricks and is working on her recall. She's just been an absolute delight. She adores working at the farm with me, going for car rides, and playing at the dog park. But perhaps one of the best moments with her was three days after I adopted her, my stepbrother broke his leg badly. He was put bed rest and was going a bit stir crazy. Evie took it upon herself to comfort him by curling up and cuddling him in his recovery bed. Perhaps she has a future as a therapy dog!

Once again, thank you for the wonderful opportunity for me to find such an amazing friend!

We wanted to let everyone know how our NASAP kitties Mandy (formerly Callie) and Rory (formerly Matthew) are doing.  They have become fast friends and spend many hours together playing and then napping.  We didn’t realize when we first brought Mandy home how charming she would be!  She is also VERY playful and energetic.  She keeps Rory on his toes!  She also likes to dig in plants, which we are trying (so far unsuccessfully) to convince her not to do!  She is a purr machine and REALLY enjoys attention.  They both really enjoy being brushed – of course Mandy tries to play with the comb as well J.  They have become best friends. They recently got a cat tree and love to spend time playing and sleeping together on it.  Thank you NASAP and a special thank you to Rachael for doing such a great job socializing the kitten litter that Mandy came from.  We are so happy with both our new family members!
