Our kitty (Harry Purrer) is doing great. He is super snuggly. He is incredibly patient with the kids, gets along well with our other cats and loves to steal food if you don't watch him carefully.
Our family adopted Georgia May. When we adopted her, she was scared of everything, didn't want to eat, jumped at every noise, seemed very sad, and didn't seem to trust anyone. After bringing her home, I questioned that we had done the right thing. It has taken her awhile, but I am happy to say, that has all changed! Georgia has come a long way. She eats really good, she no longer jumps at every noise, and she is sooooo loveable and playful!!!. Who would have ever thought that she would be a snuggle-er??? But she is! She seems to appreciate the second chance.
Georgia loves to run outside....and let me tell you, the girl can run FAST! We have had our challenges with potty training and listening to commands. But, she is doing better. Potty training...she does great. Commands...not so much. I think she will always have trust issues...but she has come so far.
Georgia has brought a lot of joy to our family and I believe she is truly happy. I have attached a couple of photos...enjoy!
Clayton is the delight and center of our family. He knows he is the king of our castle and has been such a wonderful addition to our busy home. :):)
I adopted Selena, a Plott hound, in 2015 I believe. Now she goes by Lena and has adjusted so well. At first she had a lot of issues with accidents, barking, and obedience. I worked hard and now she is the sweetest, cuddliest, and most loyal dog. She never has accidents and now cares if she does something wrong. Even though she is probably an older dog, she still gets random bursts of energy like a puppy. She loves walks/runs, playing with her sister in the backyard, cuddling with her sister, and chewing bones. I love how she curls up really small on top of pillows on top of the couch. I love my dogs so much and we go on all kinds of adventures! I would bring them with me everywhere if I could. I hope you enjoy the pictures I attached! I am so glad I adopted Lena, I love her so much!!
Here are some pictures of Gio with us and our grandson since we adopted him. He has adjusted very well and has been great with our three year old grandson. He has traveled to our home in the OBX and did very well on the trip and while there. Our daughter adopted a pit at the Rockingham-Harrisonburg SPCA about 7 years ago and he too has been a wonderful addition to the family. We are so thankful we saw Gio's pic on the SPCA website and were able to adopt him. He falls asleep nightly on my husbands lap...he has found his forever home.

Esther is doing very well :) Having her own room with litter box and cubbies, a chair, stool, bed, a couple of boxes and some of the things from her Siamese Rescue goodies bag has made her adjustment easy. Her water bowl is in her room too, and she eats in there. She retreats to her room whenever she feels the need. She knows that it's her sanctuary. She stays in there when I'm not at home also. Sometimes she is a funny clown zipping around, and sometimes a sweet cuddle cat. We have not experienced anything "sassy" about her. Right now, she is laying on the floor next to me in the dining room. But she will probably get up soon and see what's going on elsewhere. We set up her kitty penthouse today, and she has been practicing going up and down it :)
I gave my dog treats whenever she saw the kitty, so she welcomes the newcomer. They are comfortable with each other. Sometimes they walk around together, and other times they do their own thing. Yesterday, they checked out new grocery bags together that I had just brought in. I am including a few photos to better show that all is well :) Our hearts have been healing since we knew that she was coming to live with us! Thank you for all that you have provided to give us this sweet, beautiful cat!
I wanted to provide you with an update on Jarvis, the orange male tabby with the bow tie collar.
His new name is Tater Tot and he is doing very well. When we brought him home from the shelter, he walked out of the carrier and began to explore. He acclimated amazingly well, acting like he owned the place within minutes. There really wasn’t an adjustment period. No skittishness, no potty accidents. It was as if he had lived with us all his life … like he knew he belonged at our house.
He is a good mix of playful and laid back. He loves jingle bell balls and also loves laps. If you have a lap, he’s jumping into it … no matter what you’re doing when you have that lap. :D
He watches over our cul-de-sac from his cat tree by the window, excited by birds and squirrels in our yard. (And stares smugly at the little white dog across the street.)
He has a girl who loves him very much. He has been a good friend and comfort to her in her transition to a new school.
I am attaching a few photos of our sweet, spoiled boy.
