Snowy Angel's Tale

Hi I am Snowy/Angel from Danbury, CT. I was adopted almost one year ago at Pet Smart my Mom and Dad went to the Nascar races and found me that weekend. I enjoyed camping that weekend and then met my sister Ruby who is a Munchkin. At first we didn’t hit it off well but now we are best friends. We spend the night on Mom and Dads bed and enjoy all the toys they purchased for me and Ruby.

I just had my shots again and was Micro chipped so now I know I will never get lost just in case I sneak out. As you can see I have put on a few pounds and just love the fancy feast Mom gives me along with treats. Well, it is time to say good night, time to head to my parents bed I just love lying on Moms chest and cuddle all night.

This is one Happy Tale.

Precious Princess Tara's Tale

Amanda, (now known as precious princess Tara) was rescued from the hoarder home in Marshalls Creek by ACT. We fell in love with her affectionate nature and adopted her at PetSmart. She is an indoor cat but loves to monitor the birds and chipmunks that visit our feeder from her cat perch. She still behaves like a kitten, despite being two + years old and is a constant source of entertainment for our empty nest family.

At first, she didn’t know how to meow – she would open her mouth but no sound would come out. Now she has found her voice, especially at dinner time! If it weren’t for ACT and the wonderful volunteers who rescued and fostered her, we wouldn’t have this beautiful addition to our family.

Adopt a rescue pet.
Love truly does heal all wounds.

She can sleep anywhere


She's a great napper

Brandy, Maxine and Chloe's Tale

This is our very Happy Tale.

We adopted Dash, we renamed her Brandy (she was 8 months old) April 2010. When I took her home from PetSmart, I couldn't stop hugging her. When I got her home, she got along with everyone (7 other kitties) immediately. She has so much energy. She flies up and down the cat trees and the furniture. Nothing is too high for her. My other kitties are older and do not have her energy. We adopted Chloe June 2011. She is 2 years old. They became buddies right running and playing together. Then I met Maxine in a nursing home. That was a Thursday - I was sure she would get adopted on the weekend because she is so pretty. She is a long haired calico with big green eyes.

I called PetSmart on Monday to check and they said she was still there. I knew I had to take her home. I got the adoption papers online and filled them out and called Naomi. She said she would meet me there Wednesday. Tuesday morning before work I stopped in PetSmart to visit with Maxine and the volunteers were there attending to the cats. I told Denise that I was adopting Maxine and she asked if I wanted to take her today. I said "Yes”. She called Naomi...Naomi came and it was done. Thank you Naomi for taking the time to come right away. Maxine was very fragile. When I got her home she was shy and was hissing at everyone. Everyone ignored it and gave her space. Within a couple of days food and lots of hugs paid off. She buddied up to Brandy first, then Chloe and soon it was as if she has always lived with us. They are so cute...Brandy, Chloe and Maxine run and play together all the time. There is never a dull moment. We love all our kitties so much. Thank you for letting us adopt Brandy and Maxine. We are so blessed to have so much love in our home.

The pictures are of the girls on vacation in the Outer Banks, NC. They had a great time. Thank you, Naomi, Denise and all who do so much for the cats at Animals Can't Talk.

Thank you again
Adeline & Tom

 

Mischief's Tale

My boyfriend and I adopted twelve-year-old Mischief three weeks ago. We were in town for the weekend and went to Petsmart just to go out, as we don't have one in our town. When we saw little Mischief, the both of us fell in love with her. We weren't at all thinking of adopting her, we already have a toddler, a black lab and a calico at home.
We would stand at the window, walk away, then we kept coming back to look at her. Then Jan told us that she was twelve and shouldn't spend her golden years in a cage. That was the clincher! It seemed a little crazy to adopt a cat when we were 100 miles from home, but we couldn't bear the thought of leaving her, even though she was so well cared for. She jumped in our carrier right away and purred the entire way home! I was a bit nervous for my lab, cat and toddler to meet her, especially since she's the size of a kitten, but all three treated her well. She was only slightly weary of the puppy at first, but handled the three of them better than our other pets did when the dog joined our family.
It took Mischief a few days to find her litter box and to eat, but she was very cuddly and well behaved. She now eats just about anything within her reach and hasn't had any accidents since the first two days she was here. Even though my first cat disliked the dog before we got Mischief, the three of them snuggle all the time now. Mischief has been a huge source of happiness since we brought her home. Every night she brings us her toys, one by one, meowing until she's sure we saw it, then goes and gets the next one.
Mischief was the perfect addition to our family and we're very thankful for the opportunity to give her a forever home.

Note from staff: Thank you for adopting an older cat!

Virginia's Tale

I just want to thank you for allowing Virginia to come into our lives... After loosing "Joy" who was 18 years old when she passed, we never thought we could love another cat...

But Virginia has filled all the voids and has made herself a very welcomed addition to our household. She loves her pets Josh and Sarah whom she will awaken every morning by needing their backs with her claws and purrs...until one wakes and feeds her.

She is a crazy when she plays and she plays with everything from sun spots to her mouse which she will retrieve and give back to you so you can throw it again. and Again...

Timmy's Tale


Here's a picture of Timmy who I adopted a week ago. As you can see, he's very comfortable in his new home. He makes me smile every day & is a great fit to our family.

Adopt a shelter pet, it's the best feeling :)

Sincerely, Christine Deihl

Felix's Tale



Felix and Patrick seem to be making friends!!! : ) They love to lay in the bay window together. Got his eye discharge medicine and he has a little virus from stress/change in environment. Found out he has a painful tooth which I'm taking him to my vet to get it taken out, so he will be like new and able to eat without pain and get nice and happy and plump! Thanks for such a wonderful cat!! He definitely found his forever home : )

Shinii's Tale Update:

These 2 were made for each other. They act like they have known each other all their lives and loved each other since day one. Sarcee is the big brother to our little Shinii and watches over her at all times. Shinii has started something new. I put a small cat jingle ball in the bath tub along with a toilet paper cardboard. She chases the ball around the tub until it fall in the drain hole then she picks it up and takes it to the futurist part of the tub and lets it go so she can start again. She also puts the ball inside the toilet paper roll and actually picks the roll up and makes the ball fall out then the game starts again. AJ and I do nothing but laugh at this shy little girl who has become such a big part of our lives. Shinii is also our resident bug chaser. I have never seen a kitten jump so high or run so fast to catch a moth or fly. She is relentless too. When she catches them she puts them in her mouth goops them up then spits them out and she's done. I have to follow her with tissues to pick up the remains and throw them out. I am waiting until she grows all her fur back before I send any new picture's of her. But her coat is full thick and very shiny. She loves to be brushed too. She knows her meal times and runs when she hears me open a cat of Fancy Feasts. She eats from Sarcee's bowl and then her bowl in that order ever morning and evening. She also lays down and rolls so I can pick her up and give her hugs and kisses before each meal. I'd say she's doing very well - she acts like she's always lived here - we couldn't have asked for a better kitten then our Shinii. Sarcee says so too. He loves his little sister. She gets along very well with her puppy brothers and sister too. Everyone gets along so well - Our home and family are now complete thanks to you and your rescue. More updates to come. Kathy

Sarcee's Tail

A "tail" from Sarcee's loving family: Our Sarcee (formally Einstein) has brought nothing but pleasure and laughter to our household. He is loved by his Sister Chepi Kittie and Puppies ShaKa, Naaka and Tristin. He is also loved by his Bunnie Sister Clover. No he's not on the menu - he got in the pot that my husband put on the stove. He is always into something. This is Naomi's favorite picture of him.

Thank you Naomi - We love him more and more every day if that's possible.


Good Morning:
Shinii (formerly Z) has become a complete member of our household. I have a running water fountain for the kidz and she now comes into the living room to drink out of it instead of the plain old water dish she has in the bedroom. She also comes onto the couch while my husband is watching TV and bugs him for hugs and pets. She is such a snuggler and loves to be picked up and hugged and kissed on the top of her head. She'll even put her head down so you can kiss it. My husband is not into the kissy stuff but she tries anyway. Sarcee and Shinii play all day and half the night too HeHeHe.

I can't say enough about how wonderful I feel adopting from your rescue. Sarcee being my first find 2 years ago and now Shinii. My husband and I couldn't be happier that these 2 have adopted us and our dogs and allowed us to share their home with them. Thank you for being such a great and trust worthy rescue. I recommend you to everyone looking for a cat or kitten as you take the pains to be sure that whomever we receive as an adoptee are completely healthy, happy and spay or neutered. So many rescue's allow the people who adopt to spay or neuter in their own time and so many times it never gets taken care of. This is another worry off the adopters plate as they come to you already fixed.

Thank you again and I will continue to update you on their progress together along with some more picture's. Kathy
