Vinnie – A Happy Tail

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”happy-tail-photo” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Vinnie-in-new-home.jpg” width=”300″ height=”180″ text=”Vinnie in new home” plain=”1″]Just wanted to let you know Vinnie is doing FANTASTIC. We all have enjoyed having him around. He’s such a character, and has made himself right at home. We haven’t had any problems from him.

Raven – A Happy Tail

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”happy-tail-photo” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/raven-300×200.jpg” width=”300″ height=”200″ text=”Raven lounges” plain=”1″]Hi guys! Hope all is going well at the rescue! I wanted to let you know that Raven is doing very well here with us. She is almost at 1 year old, estimated September or so. She is a fiesty girl and definitely packs major attitude! She is our little Queen and she knows it! She loves all of her other kitty friends and our two dogs. She hates being held, but is okay if you hold her like a baby. She growls when you give her treats, she is so food motivated! She will carry her treats some place safe where the other animals can’t get her so she can eat it. She loves climbing up onto the counter, then to the top of the fridge, and finally to the top of our cabinets. She swishes her tail when she walks, it’s the sassiest thing I’ve ever seen! She is a true delight in our home. We love her to pieces! Thank you again.

Here are few pictures of “Joy”…

  1. She’s managed a way to get onto the window seal
  2. Enjoying her scratching box
  3. Having a view from above
  4. Getting some attention from daddy
  5. Playing w/ the laser light
  6. Time out to eat

Joy is enJOYing herself! 🙂

Rutledge – A Happy Tail

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”happy-tail-photo” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/moo-moo-with-fur-brother-300×225.jpg” width=”300″ height=”225″ text=”Moo-Moo with fur brother” plain=”1″]Formerly Moo-Moo

Hello. I am Rutledge’s human. I adopted him in December from your organization when he grabbed my arm as I passed by his cage at Petco. So many times, adoptions (especially cats) end up in returns, lost cats, etc I just wanted you to know how well Rutledge is doing.

We shared info about his fear of my dog, which abruptly ended on Christmas eve when he decided to emerge from the box springs and lay under the Christmas tree. The two of them now gently tolerate each other and even touch noses as they pass.

It has been up hill since then as I hope some of these pics will indicate. His presence is more like having a small dog in the house as he is friendly to all who enter, responds directly to his name (his third :), and demands attention!!!

Elvis – A Happy Tail

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”happy-tail-photo” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Frenchie-in-New-Home-240×300.jpg” width=”240″ height=”300″ text=”Elvis returns to throne” plain=”1″]Formerly Frenchie

I just wanted to e-mail you and let you know how thrilled I am with Frenchie!! He is the sweetest boy and I am so in love 🙂

He’s still getting used to all the sounds and the space, but he is adapting wonderfully! I decided to re-name him Elvis, because he’s definitely “The King” of the house!

Miagi – A Happy Tail

[text-blocks id=”polaroid” classes=”happy-tail-photo” src=”/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/skipper-15-300×168.jpg” width=”300″ height=”225″ text=”Miagi Lounging” plain=”1″]Formerly Skipper

I adopted Skipper from you. We call him Miagi now, he responds to it very well. He is as happy as can be, and we adore him.

He has really bonded with my long hair chihuahua Jax, they even play with balls together! They pass it back and forth to each other.

Thanks again, and keep up the great work you do!
