Lizzie, Toby Josie's Tale UPDATE

Lizzie, Toby Josie's Tale

Lizzie(Jackie Minx, Tuxedo) and Toby (Davie) and Josie adopted a few weeks ago.

They have been doing well. Myra (Josie) is very energetic and is always around to play and give love. Lizzie (Jackie Minx) is starting to come out of her shell. She follows Myra around and welcomes petting and being picked up. She now hangs around more. Toby (Davie) is a harder nut to crack. He is coming around though. He is out more but still keeps his distance. He is starting to play as well and has found some comfy spot under furniture and falls asleep. It will take more time with him but he is coming along.

Cosmo's Tale

Dear Naomi,
We adopted Tabby cat Devito, now named Cosmo, about two months ago. He seems to enjoy his new home and has settled in nicely. Cosmo is playing, running around, using his scratch board and interacting with his new family. He eats well, but we are working on weight management to get those extra pounds off. He grooms excessively at times, but hypoallergenic shampoo sponge baths seem to offer relief. Cosmo is a joy to have and we couldn't be happier! Hoping for a long life with our new family member!

Lily and Sofie's Tale

Here are the two of them. As you can see, they are very happy together. We also "adopted" another rescue (not pictured) that actually walked into our lives at a farmer's market last year and adopted us! Lily and Sofie often stay together (the other cat is male) and find great comfort in being "sisters." Thank you for bringing such joy into our lives.

Hi Naomi

It has been a while and I will send some new pics shortly but I wanted to let you know the kitties are all doing well. The more shy male - Tito - now owns the house. He is a seriously BAD kitty. Really BAD - and hysterical - there is nothing he doesn't get into! Don Diego is a sweet heart and Ms. Jilly has totally claimed my husband. His lap is her favorite place (she knew who she had to suck up to!) We did have a problem with them roaming at night and with our door open "greeting" us every couple of hours and with door closed - scratching, banging and rattling the door. So sleeping was a problem. Believe me I am very protective of my sleep given my general inability to get any of it! We found what seems to be a solution so I thought it would share in case others are having a problem. Might keep people from surrendering a cat. We tried the sticky tape, a water "moat" in front of the door, deterrent (seriously stinky spray) and a host of other things.

What has worked is a product called ssscat. It is basically a can of air with a motion sensor. We go to bed. We shut the door and put the can in the hall in the door frame. Kitty comes to scratch rattle the door etc. is detected by the motion sensor and the can sprays a burst of air across the door. Kitties go flying. Kitties stop scratching door. The first night they triggered it 4 times. The second twice, third once and since not at all. It has been 5 nights now of excellent sleep and they have learned that closed door means stay away and open means come on in. In the AM I open the door, turn off and pick up the can and they come in and jump in bed for an AM cuddle. Everyone happy - best $25 I ever spent!

Update: Tito, Diego and Miss Jilly

Wanted to let you know kitty boys and girls are doing very well. In fact Mr. Tito and Ms. Jilly Bo are the life of the party. Jilly is loving up on everyone and growing by leaps and bounds. She is finer boned than the boys but is almost as tall now. In fact she has made the terrible terrier her best friend! Boldest of them all. Don Diego has been slower to warm up to Maggie and isn't quite as happy :) about being chased - but he is coming around as well. In the morning making breakfast is like walking in a sea of kitty sharks. I can now pick each of them up and they are responding to their names. They still startle pretty easily and zoom are gone - but that is diminishing and I am sure in a couple of months any traces of scared kitty will be long gone.
Thanks for these little guys!

Tito, Diego and Miss Jilly's Tale


So the kitty boys and girl are doing well. Paul and I can both pet miss Jilly now and she is sniffing Ian's fingers - of course she still heads for the hills when my 2 year old stomps over :) She is still very tentative but does enjoy a good body and head rub :) - every time she has to get up her courage but she is getting there.

Tito and Diego own the house. Diego is quite the lap kitty. Still working on picking up Tito easily. He will let me but not too happy. We will get there. Miss Jilly - well I haven't even tried yet. And her nose is almost completely healed so no problem there. The terrible terrier is finally learning to be calm and we have had much mutual sniffing. Then Maggie gets excited and kittens go flying :).


Hey, just wanted to update you on Nick. Looks like he's doing great!! Mind you there were 4 dogs in the room while he was sleeping like this!!
