Felix's Tale

Felix was a stray in Pocono Country Place that was rescued and brought to PetSmart, adopted the same day....

by Kenny and Laurie Grady

“I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter…the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal. And I was angry. “God,” I said, “this is terrible! Why don’t you do something?” God was silent for a moment and then he spoke softly. “I have done something,” He replied. “I created You.” ~ Jim Willis~

Holly's Tale

We adopted "Daisy" who we now call "Holly" a few weeks ago. She was going to be put down by her previous owners because she had a cold. She is now a very happy, healthy and playful cat in her new home with us. She loves cuddling with people and playing with her new kitty friends that she has made at her new home.


Bubba's Tale

My mom moved to Alaska and the airlines would not let her take me. She was heartbroken. I was put up for adoption. This nice young girl loved me, her mom did not want me, her grandmother wanted her granddaughter to have me. So off I went to this new home. ACT spoke to the mom 10 days later. She admitted she did not like cats, but that I was special and well behaved. So now I am in my furrever home, yippee. I hope my new parents don't get into their heads to dress me for the holidays again!


Daisy's Tale

Someone who adopted 2 cats from ACT called about a cat that wandered onto their deck. ACT had them take the stray to Creature Comforts. Dawn told her co-worker that she had just lost a cat and was looking for one for company for her other cat. He said strange thing, I just rescued one. So, 3 days later, this cute cat is in her furrever home and is renamed Daisy...

Fergie's Tale

We just love having a cat again and Fergie has acclimated nicely to her new home. She has taken over the hassock, but is kind enough to share a tiny corner of it with human feet, provided you don’t get in her way. She has the sweetest disposition, never complains, and when she’s hungry she rubs against my legs until I fill her dish. She eats with pleasure and gusto, her tail puffing out three times its normal circumference. When National Geographic or another wildlife show is on TV, Fergie engages her inner predator; she leaps onto the TV cabinet, stands up on her hind legs, and presses her front paws onto the screen. Yesterday she seemed to have triumphantly hunted down an African elephant this way. -

Oreo and Tux's Tail

We brought home brothers Oreo and Romer (renamed Tux) in March 2010. After the initial acclimation time (they hid under the bed for a while!), they emerged and have taken over our hearts! They are great guys. Couldn't ask for better cats. Thanks!

Simba's Tail

When we first brought Nash home, now renamed Simba, we didn't know how well he would adjust to the kids and our dog. After we let him out of the carrier, he immediately went off exploring every part of the house. At first he was very afraid of the dog and wouldn't come near his gate at all, but after a while he became very interested and went to Jasper himself. Now they are bestfriends. Simba is a very loving kitten and he certainly won't let you forget about him. He follows us everywhere we go, and loves company. He loves to snuggle with us day and night. He has been nothing but a dream come true. We really love having him as an addition to the family. We appreciate everything ACT does for the animals, and also thank them a lot because without them we wouldn't have Simba. Thanks, Anna, Rafal and the kids, Angelika and Patrick

The Samaszko Family

Jetta's Tail

We received a call from Denise inquiring about "Liz" who we now call "Jetta". Jetta is very lovable...we heard that female cats are picky but Jetta is the exception. She's so adorable and always aim to please Mommy and Daddy. Grandad was taken in immediately by her sweetness...a huge contrast to "Pocono" who is really very picky of who she associates with.

Pocono is so happy to have Jetta around to play with. They are like sisters. They travel well together...amazing how many compliments we got for our cats during our vacation to Maine this past week. Jetta used to have belly fat...with Pocono chasing her around during playtime...she's becoming fit! :-) We are so happy to have her. She's touched our lives in so many ways...

Regards, Megan and Steve

LT and Sweetie's Tail

LT was surrendered by a previous owner as his daughter was not taking care of him. The owner did not like cats, and wanted a dog.

Sweetie was one of two cats left abandoned in a foreclosed house (formerly known as Amy).

Now these two have found a loving home together with a wonderful family.

This is what the new owner had to say about her new adoptees: "I took a couple pictures after we got them set up in the Bedroom/Bathroom. They seem fine together mostly because Amy is very non-aggressive. Taco just wants to play...

Bob fell in love with LT and I loved Sweetie because of her great disposition."

Harley's Tail

Thank you to Naomi and all of the wonderful volunteers at Animals Can't Talk. After the passing of 2 of our senior pets over the past year and a half, I realized the house seemed quite empty. Over the past few months we decided we were ready to add to the family again.

We had looked at a few cats on petfinders and various Petsmart locations. When we went out on Saturday, 4/30/2010, I had no intentions of coming home just yet with a cat. After telling one of the volunteers what we were looking for, she introduced me to Handsome. While he was a bit nervous there was a connection and I couldn't go home with out him. It has been just 2 days and he is settling in nicely. After the first couple of hours, he noticed there were other beings outside and one of his favorite spots is the window.

He and Elsie (our other cat) are getting along okay. Elsie is a bit standoffish at times but I think they will become friends in time. As for Max, our Lhasa Apso, tonight they actually spent the evening in the same room. Handsome has been renamed Harley. While he is a gorgeous cat, he does have a bit of an attitude. He likes to play rough and will bite gently when you rub his belly in the wrong spot.

Harley just seemed to suit him...and I think he likes his new name. He speaks to us when we walk in and was even following me around the house the first day. I look forward to many, many years with Harley and will keep you posted on how he is doing. I have attached a couple of photos. He was watching the birds outside.

Winston's Tail

I adopted Winston at Petsmart on 2/27. I am happy to inform you that he is fitting in so nicely with our family. Even my 4 year old Jennycat has pretty much accepted him. (Except for the ambushing ) He adapted very quickly to everyone and was even the life of the party 3 weeks ago for my kids birthdays. I am so happy and very grateful to the woman working with the cats at Petsmart that day, I described our family and my cat to her and she made the wonderful suggestion of Winston. He is so interesting and wonderfully chatty. Thank you so much.
Sincerely, Jen Keim

Schaffer Brother's Tail

These two guys were in a high kill shelter. Now how could two such handsome guys end up in a kill shelter? If only they could tell us. ACT said no way will they be euthanized and pulled them. They are now happily ensconced and loved in their new home with the Schaffer family.


Benny and Ally's Tail

Ally and Benny, a brother and sister team, were adopted in mid-February and made a 3 hour trip to their new home in Syracuse, NY. Benny has made himself right at home and loves to lay on the ottoman like its his new throne. He is very friendly and outgoing and loves to sit on the lap of his new owner to get as much petting and rubbing as possible.

Benny's sister Ally is a little more on the shy side but is adjusting nicely. Her favorite place seems to be under a chair or the bed, but every day she spends a little more time moving around the house. Her favorite place to be is in the window where she can see what's going on in her new neighborhood. Both cats are very happy and comfortable in their new home and making their new owner very happy as well.

Cash's Tail

Cash was brought to us at PetSmart, along with his sibling, by a woman who was upset that they were thrown out of a car on her property. Unfortunately the sibling did not make it. Cash was found to have a fish hook in his eye and was dashed to the vet. Fortunately, the hook did not penetrate his cornea. Cash is now one happy, spoiled guy.
