Noah's Tale

Original Story
Adopted! Thank you Derek Kleintop!
Noah has a lovely personality. He needs an experienced pet parent as he has a heart
condition that will require medication twice a day for life.
He's a super gentle and friendly cat that would be a wonderful addition to your family.

Masha's Tale

Helen in the cat tree - she loves my cats and dogs but is still very shy
around us and doesn't allow us to pet her Owl is fighting with my other
cat In the next pic, my other cat is grooming him (it's like husband and wife)

Fern's Tale
Good morning! Sending you an update on Cordelia who we now call "Fern".
It's been a little over a week since she's been home. At first she hid. (First picture)
and then slowly starting coming around. She took a liking to my 9 month old
daughter which we thought was strange because most cats are afraid of her
and of course our daughter LOVES her. They literally play together and share toys.
It's almost hard to believe unless you actually see it! And now, as of yesterday she's
taken full reign of the entire house and seems to be 100% comfortable and happy.
Even running out to our feet when she hears us get home or wake up in the morning.
I never anticipated how well she's adjust or that her and my daughter would take a
liking to each other so well. It's heart warming. So glad we found her! Thank you!

Starlight's Tale
Hello, my name is Sakeena and my family and I adopted a black and white cat you
called "Marsha". I just want to let you know that she is such a joy to have in our family and
she gets along with the kids so well. My daughter renamed her "Starlight"
and we love her very much. Here is a picture of her in
her bed. We are taking very good care of her and want to thank
everyone at the shelter for bringing her into our lives.

Moo, Kaitlynn and Julian's Tale

Here are the kids, relaxing and getting to know their new home. Moo is quick and rambunctious,
she loves cuddling and playing. She is determined to explore everything! Kaitlynn is quieter than
her sister, but is enjoying sniffing at everything and occasionally chasing her own tail. Julian has
sought out as many hiding places as he can, and while he's usually content to spend his time
looking out on the world. He's joined the girls for a cozy cuddle in their new cat bed, and is
exploring his surroundings at his own pace. He's not a big cuddler (yet), but he's very interested
in the treats we've offered him! They are all three already becoming a part of our family!

Update: Callie is now known as Peach
Hi Naomi! Since the holidays are over for the most part and everything calmed down a bit more,
I managed to get some really cute pictures, and even a festive one! We have also started calling
Callie, Peach, since she reacted more to it as it started out as a nickname! She loves to play fetch,
beg for human food relentlessly, and wake me up by licking my nose at 6:30am! Her and Simba
get along much better now, which happened quicker than I thought it would. She doesn't like
sitting in your lap but won't stop until she can take a nap on your chest! Simba seems a lot less
lonely now and I don't feel so bad leaving for work!

Callie's Tale
Callie is fine with our other cat, she actually gets excited when she sees him. But he's stone cold at
the moment, which I expected. He hisses and growls like he usually does when we get a new furry
family member. It takes him about one or two weeks to stop growling and hissing as much. Such a
grumpy old man! She did however warm up quickly after arriving, only an hour or two of hiding
before she came around to play and get pet! She's now more eager to explore the whole house
and used the stairs right away, which I thought she'd be afraid of because they are floating stairs!

Minerva's Tale

Good evening! Thank you so much for letting us adopt Nittany today. She's a lovely early
Christmas present. Her new name is Minerva, Mini for short!
She's making herself very comfortable in our home.
She is full of love and affection, and we couldn't be happier to extend our family.

July's Tale

Persephone's Tale

Persephone settled in wonderfully, there was a small amount of hissing from the older cat Sally.
But after 3 days there was no more hissing. We renamed her Belle. She is a very curious cat she
loves watching the deer in the yard, and watching the fish in our tank. She made herself at home
and has her toy mice all over the house. She is the perfect fit for our family. Thank you

Larry's Tale
After "fostering" Larry, we decided that he HAD to be another addition to our family
(we're not very good at fostering). he fits in perfectly and already
bumped up to king of the house :)
Mittens' Tale
Hereís a couple of picís of Mittens.
His favorite spot when I wale up or come home from work.
I sit at the kitchen table on my computer, and he has to come join me like clock work.

Alysa's Tale

Hi Naomi! We adopted the beautiful calico cat named Alysa about six weeks ago and fell in love with
her immediately! She couldn't wait to jump into open arms to be held and snuggled! It took only a day
for her to start adjusting to our other cats; playtime here is so much fun she didn't want to get left out!
We enjoy setting up good photo opportunities so please enjoy these! Looks like Thanksgiving wasn't
just for the humans this year...
Thank you for all your hard work with our feline friends, Anna & Bob W.

Leyla and Stormy's Tale

Hi Naomi.. Leyla is doing much better since bringing Stormy home.. they both are staying with us
in the living room and getting along fine. I guess Leyla just wanted another cat in the house.

Justice and Tiny's Tale

Attached is a pic of him with his new friend Tiny...She came from a family that didn't hold her much,
so shes kind of feral...She wont let any of us pet her, but she LOVES Justice. He is doing great,
and he is so friendly with my 4 year old son Travy....Just like the last orange cat he had, he is like
the most social cat in the world, he loves attention, i wish Tiny was more like him..Hopefully she
will come around, I just got her fixed and all her shots so I am crossing my fingers. Let me know
if you would like anymore pics!!! Thank you for the awesome cat!

Update:Jake and Toby's Tale

Hi Naomi,
Just wanted to give you an update on Jake (formally Tigger) and pass along a photo. It has
been a very long 5 1/2 months with many ups and down. For the first couple of months we hardly
saw him. We then tried different things to entice him to come out. From under the desk he
watched Toby (ACT alumni formally know as Rusty) play with a laser toy and a toy on a stick.
After about a week of watching he finally joined it. At the time he would only play if Toby was
playing we couldn't get him to play solo with us. Jake still runs when we walk into a room that
he's already in.

But now he's only gone a few minutes instead of days and he does come out when called.
Yes, he knows his name and he does come when called. Just in the last couple of weeks we
have actually caught him playing with toys by himself. As you can see, he's taking to sleeping
in bed with us. I'm just not sure if it's us he wants to sleep with or if he's in bed because
that is where Toby sleeps.

In the photo, Toby is snuggled next to my husband and Jake is snuggled next to Toby.
Jake has learned that the couch and the bed are great places for catnaps.
On furniture is a lot more comfy than under furniture. I just want you to see how far Jake
had come. Is everything perfect? No, but looking at him and comparing his behavior
from then to now you wouldn't believe the change. It's hard to believe that
he is the same cat that I cried over because he hated us so much and wanted
nothing to do with us. (My husband still has the bite scar on his face to prove it.)

Anyway, I just wanted you to know how a lot and I mean a lot of patience and
love turned Jake's life around. Everyday he's become more and more of a pet.

Jake and Toby's Tale

Look who came out of hiding!! Sure, Jake is still hiding behind Toby (an ACT graduate
formally known as Rusty) and most of him is behind the curtains but after almost
six weeks of being under the furniture this is a big step for him. I guess the talk
I gave Toby about engaging his new brother more is working.
Toby is normally "a sleep in bed with us at night" cat but for the last two night he and
Jake have been spending the night together on a blanket on top of my dresser.
Which is Toby's normal daytime napping spot. I know this isn't a great photo
of Jake (Tigger) but I'm so proud of him for coming out of his comfort zone,
I just had to share. Hopefully a great photo of Jake is just around
the corner now and I will send it to you as soon as it happens.

Janet's Tale
Janet, adopted on Saturday at PetSmart, with her new mom. So sweet and happy!

Justice's Tale

Happy in her new home

Sophie's Tale
Hi Naomi We adopted Sophie at the end of May and after 4 months she has gone from
hiding under our bed and running away in fear whenever anyone looked at her
to walking around comfortably and confidently and coming to us when we call her.
She is a member of our family now and we love her.
So proud of her progress. Thanks Erin

Many Thanks to all the Photographers who donate their work.
