Purrcilla

Purrcilla Image

I adopted Purrcilla on May 8th. I can’t even imagine not having her around anymore - she is such a joy to have around! EVERYONE who meets her falls in love with her! She gives the best cuddles and likes purring up a storm while kneading on my neck while snuggling up right under my chin. She is so sweet and has the softest, scratchy meow. She is such a happy little cat that has the best personality and she really LOVES to play! She loves to chase feathers that are on a string as I drag them under the area rug….she loves to pounce on them. She also loves to chase the laser…..she can’t quite figure out why she can’t catch it!?! She keeps all her favorite toys in a little “play area” that she decided she needs to keep by the front door. It took a while my other cat, Lily, to accept her but they do get along pretty good now (although they do have the occasional tiff like any other sisters do). I am so thankful to have found Purrcilla as my home would not be complete without her! Thanks to NASAP for all the great work they do for animals in need of a new start.

Isabelle

Isabelle is doing great.  She is a very good dog - she loves going for her daily run.  She especially l oved her kiddie pool in the summer.  She has many toys but her favourites are a stufed jack that squeaks and a ball on a rope.  She teases/plays with our Shepherd and usually isn't too far away from him.  She is a happy little girl.

hey Mary...it's Judy Lede out in New Norway...you wanted to know how,"our kittycat is doing"?...well first of all we changed her name...she is no longer called Jessie...we named her Cleo....she really knows her name too !
Hubby (Bruce) calls Cleo his kittycat...you see we adopted two kittycats from nasap...they were both baby kittens when we got them..Miss was born in Feb/08...when Cleo came home she loved to bug Miss, cause I think she thought Miss was her mom or something...it took awhile, but in time they were sister/bestfriends...Miss really looks out for Cleo...Cleo likes to hide on us in the house...all we have to say to Miss is, "Where's Cleo?"...and Miss can find her in minutes.
Cleo has her surgery at Calgary Trail Pet Hospital on Nov.3rd. ...otherwise she sees the Vet in Camrose, (Camrose Vet Group)...she is up to date on all her shots...this house isn't the same without our kittycats...Bruce and I are very happy we waited for the puuurfect kittycats...thanks Mary
p.s. adoption's in my blood...heck I adopted my 2 kids...heehee .....Mary we always mention nasap to our friends and family....
thanks again

Scout and Boots

Scout and Boots Image

Scout is doing well and such a wonderful addition to the family. We were hoping her and our previously adopted Boots (May 2007) would get along a bit better but with the age difference (5 years) and Boots' aggressive play, Scout has taken on the position of not wanting to have anything to do with Boots. In saying that though their tolerance of each other has definitely gotten better since the beginning and I think with more time maybe just maybe Scout might just let Boots sit with her/play with her. However, on occasion they sniff eachother's faces, sit within a foot of eachother, and seem to have no issues sharing their soft food off of the same plate. All in all Scout has settled in very nicely and we are very happy with the adoption.

Nell

Nell is doing fantastic!  We love her, and anyone else that comes to our home.  She has adjusted very well, no issues with only having one eye.  One of her favorite activity is hunting flies is our garage, she cries and cries to go out there every night, and now that it’s cold out (and no flies), she still wants to “hunt” them.  Another favorite activity is fetching with her mouse (she’ll drop it right at your feet and wait for you to throw it again), we play every day.  She has been a great addition to our family.


Griffen (now Bogey)

Griffen (now Bogey) Image

Bogey (Griffen) is doing just great. He loves life out on our acreage; plays with the two kittens we adopted; and follows my husband wherever he goes. He is a bit of a prankster - steals whatever he can - shoes, gloves, tools, you name it. But we love him to bits. He's so full of fun and energy. My daughter brings her 3 dogs to visit frequently and Bogey runs them ragged! He's so good-natured that he gets along with everyone. Bogey loves his toys and chasing balls, but he especially likes his blanket; he packs it wherever he goes. He's already on his second blanket as you can imagine they get pretty tattered being drug all over the place. Some times he runs with it; and it gets in his way; then he steps on it causing him to do a complete summersault. It cracks us up!

Jack and Nora

Jack and Nora Image

Hi Ashley,

Jack and Nora are doing so well! They are best friends. Unfortunately Pickles doesn't care for either one, so we just keep them separate. As I am typing this Jack and Nora are flying up and down the hallway! I know Jack's foster mom wanted an update, so I thought I'd send you this and you could pass it on. Nora acts like his little mother and she loves cleaning him, although he doesn't care for it. He puts up with it for a little while and then gets annoyed and either swats her (gently) or just gets up and moves away from her (he's a boy and boys like to be dirty). Her reaction to this is either she just moves closer to him and continues or she pins him down and forces him to stay there while she finishes (sometimes biting him in the process - she's got to do what she's got to do). They sleep side by side in matching beds which we call their donuts. Jack has his moments where he is still pretty skittish, but nothing like when I first brought him home. He hid under my bed and got up inside the box spring. But now he's so good, he is vocal and has this squeaky little voice, guess he hasn't hit puberty yet. Sometimes he'll lay on my chest and fall asleep (although usually not voluntarily at first). He doesn't mind our dogs, he's never hissed or swatted at them (unlike Nora and Pickles), but they are very unsure of him. They are so used to the cats trying to attack them that they don't trust him completely. We put him with them often and although he stays put, they are usually the ones to get up and go, "I'm out of here". Jack likes to visit us at 5 o'clock in the morning and purr and rub up against us hoping to get petted. We took him to the vet for his check-up and the vet said his eye looks good. She was also quite surprised at his under-bite, she said it's quite rare for cats to have under-bites. I've also noticed that he doesn't just have an under-bite, but that his lower jaw is crooked. I think it just makes him all the more cuter!! She said that we should just keep an eye on it and make sure that he doesn't have any problems eating as he grows and his adult teeth come in. So far so good!

Thanks again to you Ashley, for all the work you do with NASAP. And a big thanks to Jack's foster mom! She did such a great job with him. He's the best kitten I've ever met (and I'm not just saying that because he's mine). He's truly the sweetest little guy.

I'm attaching some pictures, I hope they go through alright. I hope you can notice how he's a little bit of a walking hypocrite at no fault of his own, sporting a Harley-Davidson collar (from us) and a Prince tag (courtesy of his Auntie Sarah).

Ruby

Hi all just a little update on Ruby who we adopted a couple of months ago….she is doing great. We just love Ruby she has settled in to our family nicely, she loves playing with our other dog and is extremely happy with our cat. Ruby is doing much better at play time she is learning patience , she loves our daily walks ( she lost 5lbs ) and loves the sound of the school bus coming with her brother Ryan.  It is an absolute joy to watch my 10yr son develop such a bond with her they are good buddies. Ms. Ruby can also be a grandpa ‘s girl must be the cookies.  Ruby is a great girl our family is so blessed thank you  Karen, Greg Bowler
