Christy Finds Her Perfect Home

christy

A family in Fayetteville fell on hard times.  When they moved out, they knew there were other cats in the neighborhood, so when they moved out they just left their cat on the front porch.  She soon joined the group of cats 3 doors down.  “Christy” the cat was sweet, cuddly, loving.  Not skitterish or feral.  She desperately wanted to sit in someone’s lap.

A week after Christmas a little girl and her family came into Petsmart.  The little girl had asked for a cat for Christmas.  Under the tree she got cat food bowls, cat beds, cat litter boxes, etc.  So she came into Petsmart the weekend after Christmas with a big smile, saying she was here to pick out her cat.  I showed the family Christy.  The little girls pet Christy and she purred.  The little girls chased her and she just sat there and let them rush her.  The little girls picked Christy up like a sack of potatoes, and Christy didn’t squiggle or try to get away.  Mom and I laughed at how the girls handled Christy.  We tried to show the young girls the right way to hold a cat, but at the same time marveled at how well Christy handled it all.

Look at the attached picture.  The girl on the left with the blue shirt on – Christy is her cat now.  Christy sleeps on a little girl’s bed every night now.  The little girl is thrilled to have a Christy.  And Christy is thrilled to sleep on a little girl’s bed every night.

Lola Finds Her Perfect Family

It had been 12 years since I had a cat and I wanted a new fur baby. My preference was a declawed adult. I was referred to the FHS website by my co-worker, Kim. When I saw Lola the on FHS website, I thought she was beautiful! I contacted the FHS and was advised of Lola’s almost year-long stint as a foster cat and of the challenges she faced in finding a forever home. Lola had shown aggression to previous fosters and did not like living with other cats. With that understanding, I took her home on a trial basis to see how she would do with me. Within three days, she was comfortable (not fully trusting) and seemingly settling in. Things got better with lots of treats (I repeat, a LOT of treats!) and play time with toys. In this transition, I got pawed a few times, but now we are the best of friends. Her paw slaps have been traded in for kitty kisses, purrs and snuggles.

Today, Lola is playful, loving, and completely happy with her new family! She is definitely the queen of the house!

Pixie’s Happy Tail

pixie

Pixie and her siblings were rescued a family whose mom was battling cancer.  They were unable to care for them and turned to FHS for help.  Pixie was a super snuggly cat who just wanted to be held and loved.  One day during adoptions, a mom and daughter are looking for the perfect companion.  The daughter wants a kitten but the mom wants a cat who will cuddle, not run and play all day.   The mom is battling cancer and after her chemo, she spends lots of time laying on the sofa.  She wanted a cat who would be content to sit with her.  Well, Pixie was up to that challenge.   Pixie immediately curled up in the mom’s lap and laid her head on her elbow.

Four weeks later, mom and Pixie are inseparable!  Pixie cuddles with her all day and sleeps near her head at night.  Mom is happy and Pixie is happy – a perfect happy tail!!

Lilah helps Vet with PTSD

Lilah came to FHS because her previous family lost their job and had to move.  She’s sweet and docile.  The FHS was contacted by a charity that places pets with veterens returning from war with PTSD.  Lilah was a perfect candiate – she’s easy going, never skitterish, and loves to snuggle.  The “Pets for Vets” group adopted Lilah, and she now loves her new home.  The family says that she sleeps on the bed between the husband and wife every night, and the Vet says he’s been able to cut down on the anti-anxiety medications.  She jumped in everyone’s lap the first day, and now acts like she has lived her whole life with them.  The love how snuggly she is.  The FHS recognizes that we helped twice as much with this adoption – we placed a homeless cat with a loving family, and we helped a Vet with PTSD.  We doubled the love with one adoption !

Sweet Pea

SweetPea

Dear Fayette Humane Society,

 When my fiance and I lost our 7 year old rescue cat Lena recently, we decided that we would not be bringing home another pet anytime soon. But as a few days passed, we realized how empty our house was without her. So we started our search for another cat to welcome into our home. We came across a picture of Sweet Pea on your site and she had the cutest little face and her profile said she was very sweet- hence her name. They put us in contact with her foster mom a few days after submitting our application, we decided it was best to meet sweet pea in her foster home since she didn’t do too well at the adoption events. On Thursday 17th we met her for the first time, she was curious about us and the carrier crate we had brought along with us. She let us pet her for a while and even walked right into the crate on her own as if to say- ok, I’m ready to go now! My fiance closed the carrier door, and we were certain that she would soon want out. But as we stood there and just spoke with her foster mom for a few minutes, she didn’t make a peep. We said our goodbyes and carried her to our car. We drove all the way home and she was as calm as can be. Finally we were home, we took the carrier inside and set her down and opened the door- the moment of truth. Sweet pea walked out and just started exploring the entire house, searching for Lena as her scent still lingered in our home. Once she realized there was no other cat but her, she relaxed a little and explored more. When it was time for bed, she followed us into our bedroom and made herself comfortable right in the middle of both of us (where she now permanently sleeps every night). We loved on her and she was just as loving back. She has a very fitting name- she is the sweetest girl. She loves to sit in our lap and make biscuits, she loves her window perch and likes looking out the back door too. She loves to play with her squeaky mouse, hang off the top step of our stairs, and enjoys hiding in boxes & bags. She is a big cuddle bug- loves laying right on top of my fiance’s chest or she is quite content with sitting on my lap as we watch tv together. We fell completely in love with her after just a few days into our 2 week home trial.  We knew we had to make Sweet Pea a part of our family, so we decided to officially adopt her on Saturday 26th.

 We are so happy that we found Sweet Pea!

 Hugs,

 John & Gloria

I was helping at the adoptions and performing my duties when I began to fall in love with Doodles. He was the most perfect dog! I called my parents and told them about him and sent them pictures. They really liked him as well. The following Monday, we took him home on trial because at that time we had Biscuit, our 11-year old poodle we’d had for almost 10 years at that time. They got along great. They played with each other and chased each other.

We then decided he was right for us and adopted him the following Friday. Biscuit had some peculiarities about him; he’d bark and bite the vacuum, he howled if we howled to him. The two months Doodles and Biscuit shared were amazing. They were like long lost brothers. We eventually had to put Biscuit to sleep due to his many health problems. After we brought Biscuit home and buried him in the backyard, Doodles couldn’t figure out where Biscuit had gone. We think he felt the sadness that we felt losing Biscuit.

After the sadness had passed, Doodles started to exemplify the things Biscuit used to do. We still believe to this day that whilst my brother and I were at school and our parents were at work, Biscuit knew his time was coming and taught Doodles how to run the house and behave. We have truly been blessed with Doodles.
