Jojo: The Affectionate Kitty

Jojo is very affectionate (a little love bug!) and had been patiently waiting at the center for her perfect forever home.

She’d gotten adopted recently, but it did not turn out well. She returned to the center stressed out and losing her hair. She had to regain her confidence and her health before being adopted out again.

Mark & Theresa came to the center to spend time with Jojo this past spring, and she bonded with them immediately. We are happy to announce that Jojo is truly enjoying her new life and home with them.

Rio, the Black Kitty

Recently, a family came in looking for a black cat to adopt. That in and of itself is great! One of the volunteers took a tower out of walk-in #5, with shy Rio perched on top. She told Rio to give it a try (Rio usually did not come out to say hello to adopters, therefore making her adoption chances slim). But that day she proudly perched on top of her tower.

The woman came over and began petting her. And petting her….and petting her. They bonded instantly! Rio’s siblings and mom had all been adopted a while ago and she was the last one left. Even her “roommate,” a black kitty with hip issues, got adopted recently. It was her time and she found the perfect family.

We are so happy for Rio!

Special Needs Kitty: Coco

One of our special needs kitties, Coco, was adopted!! He is one of our hip kitties, as we call them. His siblings, who also had the same problem, were previously adopted and Coco waited patiently for the ‘right’ mom.

She came into the center and he climbed on her lap and it was an instant match made in heaven. We know he has found the perfect forever home and we are very happy for him.

Adoption Success Story: Katie, Age 14

Whenever a senior kitty gets adopted we are always thrilled as it is rare and very special and meaningful for both the cat and the adopter. Katie’s owner had passed away in December of 2015 and we were able to take her. She spent her time at the adoption center comfortably, but she did not enjoy the company of the other cats.

A few weeks ago a nice lady came in with her daughter. She told us of her recent losses and said she was a senior citizen and needed a cat that was also a senior. She liked Katie who turned 14 in December. We wish the best for Katie and her new mom.

After the adoption we received this note from her daughter: “Thank you EVERYONE for your good wishes — I’m the “daughter.” Mom and I want all of you to know that Katie is deliriously happy in her new home. My father died in 10/16, and “his” cat passed on 1/25, so Mom decided that she and Katie were “two old ladies who needed each other.” Katie cuddles up with Mom and they are inseparable. SRC, you are outstanding. THANK YOU!”
