Sorry for the late reply this ended up in the spam folder 🤔. Oreo is doing great. We changed her name to Kahlúa, she runs and plays with all but one other cat who is a grumpy puss. She has more sight than we originally thought and loves to cuddle in our bed at night. She also tries to play piggyback on the dog lol. Here is some newer pics of her.

Hi Tracy,
Clovis (we have renamed him Stewart) is great! He is a very loving, sweet, curious little guy and we really enjoy him. He and our husky are now friends. I had emailed a few days after we brought him home about him sneezing some and how he had a little yellow-ish snot from his nose. I think it was Tammy who was emailing back and forth about that. He is still doing this, but a little less frequent. He has a doctors appointment with Lacey Animal Hospital in Hanford tomorrow afternoon to get his 3rd booster and to check out his sneezing. We will keep you updated on that. We love him; he's a wonderful addition to our family!
I'll attach a few photos of him for you all.
Sincerely,
Benjamin and Alayna Kay

She is fitting in perfectly. She loves to cuddle with our other cat at nap time. She never misses an opportunity to climb on our laps or snuggle on our chest while sleeping.
She is an amazing little kitten who keeps us on our toes.

Hi Tracy,

We changed Ryan and Zane names to Hiro and Maui. They are doing great. They are so adorable and loving but still are kittens in the way they play. Lol. We couldn't imagine our lives without them. They bring such joy and happiness to our hearts.

Thank you John.

Hi Tracy!

Princess is doing great!  She is an absolute delight and we love having her as the newest member of our family.  She is 7 months old now and getting bigger every day.  She gets along well with our other 4 cats whose age range from 1 yr to 16 yrs old.  She helps to bring out the kitten in all of them J
 
She is always happy, very curious, funny and sweet.  WE LOVE HER!

I have attached some photos of Princess.  Enjoy!
 

Thank you for checking in on her.  Rest assured that Princess will receive the best care and so much love from us.

Hi Tracy
Milo and Moke (Cotton's new name) are great!  They are the best little additions to our family. We love them so much. Meli, our sweet Senior kitty that we have had for the last 14 years is slowly warming up. I took this picture this morning in my daughter's room.

Thanks for checking in!

Hi Tracy, Tammy,

I meant to get back to Tammy on their updates! They are doing great, they still have slight cold symptoms (such as sneezing) but they are better than they were before. I plan to get a humidifier so hopefully that'll help them & me (get over both of our colds). No more eye infection, they're eating, and they're up and running. Kuda (Smokey) was throwing up, not eating, and had a poop incident on my sister's bed while I was gone for a weekend on vacation with my boyfriend. I came back early to see if I needed to take him to the vet, but I haven't seen any of those symptoms since I have been home. I might begin transitioning them to a raw food diet. Kuda (Smokey) isn't a big fan of dry kibble or Temptation treats which I find a little odd. All in all, they have both been doing great. Each and every one of my family members has grown to love them. Two is definitely better than one.

Happy New Year! Hope all is well at The Cat House(s) in Kings County.

Warmest regards,
Serena T

Hello Tracy,
  Thank you for the follow up email! Princess Fiona is doing GREAT and is completely spoiled. She has adjusted extremely well to our other 2 cats and 2 labs. My kids have been off on Christmas Break, so Fiona is getting lots and lots of loves. She is growing each day, and eats well.
We have no problems, and are so happy that Fiona joined our family. Thank you for everything you do to find homes for these kitties. Attaching a few picture of our Princess.
Best,

Hi Tracy,
I thought I could send more pictures of our Yum Yum (Sweet Pea) - we adopted her in September this year. She is a pretty young lady now! She is still a kitty though and loves to play! Her favorite toy is a ping-pong ball in the bathtub. She can play there for hours! Then she - somehow - gets the ball out of the bathtub and we have a hard time to find it again :) I have a job now and work Monday - Friday and my husband Zach Friday - Sunday. So on Friday they are alone for 8 hours but all our kitties are doing great. Yum Yum loves to eat and sleep in our bed at night. For Christmas they (we have 4 cats Sphynx Mina, orange tabby Winston, Turkish Angora Marshmallow and Siamese mix Yum Yum) got a ceramic water fountain, window hammock, toy, bed, toy for treats and treats and catnip toys.
We are blessed to have her here! I attached some pictures of her - in their teepee I made, with my husband, all of them on their couch, Yum Yum watching the snow, our Christmas card, Marshmallow and Yum Yum with Santa - she was so well behaved!! ..and their new water fountain.

Have a great day
Olga & Zach and kitties =^..^=

Hi Tracy,

Apologies for the delay in responding. Your message went to my spam folder. :(

Cosette (now called Aly) is doing fantastic!! She has settled in nicely. I got her a great cat condo to climb on and lots of kitty toys and we have a lot of fun together. She has been to the vet and had her last FVRCP shot. She's healthy and happy. Here are a few photos. :))

Hi,
 
Mick aka Tut Moses (Tut for short) and Bambi aka Nephri (Neph for short) are doing great. They were exiled to the back bedroom for a month.
Once out of the bedroom our other cats accepted them without a hiss. So all is well.

Tracy,

We are doing great! Lolly has been renamed Millie. She has adapted quickly to our home and is getting a long well with our 8yr old cat. Her favorite thing to do right now is play fetch up the stairs. She prefers the little fuzzy white mice over other toys at the moment. A few weeks ago we discovered she had a little spot of ringworm on her head. We went to the vet and he gave us some medication. She's been tolerating the nightly dose of medicine well. And she's a pig! She tries to eat everything. She's such a sweet baby, thank you for letting me bring her home.

Sincerely,
Jennifer

Hi Tracy,
This is Olinka Zach's wife.

She is doing good! We named her Yum Yum. It's from one book "the cat who.." by Lilian Jackson Braun where was one smart Sienese cat her name was Yu and her new owner called her Yum Yum. ..really nice books! She is not in the first one though and those are crime books - just in case you like to read :)

Our Yum Yum had a rough first day - I'm not sure if Tammy told you. But she roll off the balcony :( she was sitting under and I got her after like 10 seconds and Zach watched from the balcony - that's my emergency plan if something happens that he is watching and I run there - I like to be ready for everything just in case..so we rashed to the vet. They said she is alright but kept her there for 4 hours just in case she is breathing and acting well. She had a little scratch under her eye and she wasn't allowed to go on the balcony. I put chicken wire all around and she is good now. Our balcony is on second floor.

I attached some pics with her scratch under the eye and with our other kitties. Orange big one is Winston who we have since kitty he is 1.5 years old, fluffy white is Marshmallow who I got in Canada when he was a little baby boy traveled with him to Czech Republic and then back here he is a really spoiled kitty :) he is 2.5 years old but still momma's little baby and little orange one  Pocketwatch that we watch sometimes - she is only indoor healthy neighbours cat around 3 months old - we share the balcony with them.
Yum Yum sleeps with us in the bed every night and all night. She is a healthy kitty who loves to eat and play! Zach works on weekends and I'm home 24/7 except shopping and that is good that I'm here because she is very affectionate. First Friday when Zach left for work and I was in the bed she was standing in the living room where the entrance is and meowed so I came there what happened and she was soooo happy to see me like she thought we left her there alone and forgot that I'm still in the bed :)
 
We are really sorry for the accident I know accident happens but I still blame myself even when we were right there and watched her. She did her cute kitty rolling and fall. We have two other cats + Neighbors Pocketwatch who is younger than Yum Yum and all of them are very careful so we watched her if she wants to jump - she didn't want to - but I didn't think that it could be an accident like this :(

Oh and her first day before the balcony accident.. so we came to Moscow, Idaho around midnight and after long driving we wanted her to relax so she slept alone in our second bedroom - we didn't want her to meet our boys that night. In the morning after their breakfast we introduced them and it was great :) Marshmallow and Winston were careful and moved slowly and she ran out of the bedroom smelled Marshmallows face before he had a chance to back up or do something then the same with Winston and then ran around the apartment and explore :) Im happy that boys are very gentle with her because sometimes they play rough together but I knew they will be gentle because they are with Pocketwatch and that's why we wanted kitty around her age so boys are used to it :)

She has plenty of toys - we use our second bedroom as a living room so our living room is their playground..full of toys + box and paper bags :) we have one big scratching post and 5 smaller..and several cat beds - nobody is using them! And when she gets bored of toys she plays with boys :)

Have a great day!
Olga, Zach, Yum Yum, Marshmallow and Winston

Hi, Tracy!

They are doing so well and have really taken to their new home.  We have a couple of big cat trees and they LOVE those, they have the greatest personalities, just perfect.  They are now called Mochi and Miso.  We're so glad we made the decision to adopt them together, they are the silliest little boys.  I have attached a few pics of them, one is so cute - they slept with my granddaughter when she came over for a visit and they missed her so much when she left.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to bring them into our family and thank you for all the great work CHOTK does every day.

Hi Tracy,

They are both doing really well. They've made themselves completely at home and they get along with our other cats, especially our youngest (3 yrs old), he loves them.
One of them got really sick with a uri after we brought them home but Tammy and Heather at the Petco Adoption Center helped us get her healthy again.


Here they are a couple days ago they're too cute!

Hi Tracy! Thanks for checking in on us! Echo (formally Bobby) has settled in wonderfully with our family and is getting along very well with our other fur babies. The dogs are rather indifferent though Magyver is a little afraid of him, ha! As expected, it took a little longer with my kitty Sammy...I think maybe two weeks before they were playing and doing midnight kitty zoomies through the house :) We all feel very fortunate that the two boys have clicked so well. Echo had his booster, last week, as scheduled and he checks out healthy.

Thank you so much for all you and the CHOTK does for animals.

Hi Tracy,

Kuma is doing very well. Since the last update, he visited the veterinarian for his vaccination. He is growing quickly and continues to be energetic and playful. Kuma is well adjusted and equally well behaved. He learned the rules of the house and its daily rhythms within his first couple weeks with us. He has a wonderful way about him that gets everyone involved with his antics. He is still very much the purr bucket that he was when we first met him. I've attached some photos of Kuma so you can see how he is growing.

Our family visited Cat House on the Kings during the recent open house. We have never seen anything like it before and were very impressed. Our oldest daughter, Ashley, enjoyed volunteering that day and has been helping at the Fresno Petco adoption center. Thanks to everyone for all you do to help so many cats and kittens get well and find new homes.

Thanks,

Hi Tracy,

Pepe (or as we call him, Larry) is growing fast and doing well. He loves to play with toys and runs throughout the house carrying them in his mouth. But his favorite toy is his big sister, Fergie. His purr is fantastic, he's very smart and very affectionate. It's love all around.
Attached is a photo of Larry and Fergie, enjoying the view from their perches.

Dear Tracy,
            He is doing well and loving the life. He has really gotten to be best buds with his big sister Holly. He love to eat and begs for food. He is also so sweet at night. Loves to cuddle and wants so much attention from me or my sister Jessica. He loves to chase Holly and play with the laser. I believe Holly has gotten over her diva fit and enjoys having him around too. However he is still a bit jumpy during the day and runs away when any human comes near him. We still love him though. He is a great addition to our family. Thanks for letting us adopt him.

Audrey is doing great.  After a couple weeks of getting acclimated to her new home, I slowly introduced her to Gimli (my Old English Sheepdog).  They are friends now and have no problems with one another...except for bed time.  Gimli isn't used to sharing me for sleep time and Audrey likes to unplug my alarm clock. Haha.  She's always playful.  She's a purring machine.  I adore her.  And Gimli is pretty fond of her, too.  She head butts Gimli and pounces on his tennis balls.  It's adorable.

She's growing like a weed.  I've attached some pictures.

Working from home this morning and got a cuddly shot of the kitties. Thought you might like to see them. Also attached a good one of Luke and one of them on their cat tree when we first got it.

We're taking a family vacation this weekend in Santa Barbara. Found a pet-friendly hotel. We walk them on harnesses pretty regularly and they love it so we'll be able to take them around the property. :)

Hope all is well,

Staff at Cat House on the Kings,

I cannot even begin to tell you how lucky we are to have adopted our kitten there, we decided to name her Lola. She is the most friendly, playful kitten I think I have ever had! She is adjusting really well to her new home, she follows my boyfriend and I all around and never stops purring so I think it's safe to say that she is as happy to have us as we are to have her. My experience adopting her was nothing short of perfection, thank you all for everything you do. I know where I will recommend anyone who is looking to adopt. I'll add some pictures of Lola!

Sincerely,
Heather and Charlie

The boys are doing well.  They are happy and healthy and have brought a lot of joy and fun to our home.  I know they like having each other to play and fight and explore and cuddle with as well.  I was cautioned that they may need extra time to adapt due to their background, but I'm happy to report that they are very affectionate and comfortable with us - two little love machines with loud purr motors!  I hope you enjoy these photos and thank you all for the wonderful work you do.  Happy New Year!

Hi Tracy -  everything is well! My daughter decided to rename her Penny.

Penny is a bundle of energy -  Lizzie my daughter loves her very much and tells me often - how glad she is to have adopted her. I'm quite fond of her --- actually the whole family loves her a bunch. Well that is except Nee - Nee my 14 year old cat. Penny tries to show her sometimes who is boss and that doesn't go over well. Maybe one day they will be chummy. In the mean time we will love them both. I hope everything is well with the Cat House on the Kings --- we wish you all a very happy holiday season!

Sorry for the late response. Shakespurr is doing great and has gotten along very well with his new big brother Chubi. He is such a loving kitty and wants nothing more than to be close to me, constantly following when I leave the room and purring when he realizes I’m close. I’m happy to say that he is making progress in his growth. He is one of the smallest cats I’ve seen for his age, yet with an unlimited supply of canned food at his every whim, I hope to change that. I cannot express how excited I am to see him grow and mature in the years to come. In the short month we ha€™ve had him, he has become a tiny treasure to us that will be loved for the rest of his days. Thanks Cathouse!

Hello,

Fergie (we have named her Kiki) is doing great. She is so sweet and playful.

Just a couple weeks ago, she finally was able to warm up to our other cat and now they play together and sleep near each other... Not quite "best" friends yet but they're getting there.

She has been such a great addition to our family, we cannot thank you enough for letting us adopt her.  I have attached a couple photos that my wife took of her.

Thank you,

Hello Tracy,
Brad Kitts name is now Gambit, and he is doing very well. He loves to play and sit in the sun looking out the window. I kept him on the royal canine kitten food and also given him whole earth kitten food. He also enjoys about a can to a can and a half of wet food (whole earth and blue wilderness kitten) He does really well with the litter box, only a couple accidents. He has an appointment set to get his last shot. Gambit is a very sweet and playful kitten, I am very happy to have him.

I just wanted to let you know that Gypsy is doing great! We love her. She is such a sweetheart. Thanks again for allowing us to adopt her. I still wish we would have adopted Catsanova also but I'm sure he is doing great at his new home. If he's ever returned to you, please let us know.

I am sending a few pictures of Gypsy, so you can see how she is doing. She is a wonderful addition to our family.

We hope God continues to bless all of you & the animals. Keep up the good work you are doing.

Thank you for the email.  Coral is an awesome sweet lively girl.  She has us laughing all the time.  She sleeps right beside me already.  I bought the Royal Canin Kitten food and she loves it.

My other cat is watching Coral closely but does not want Coral too close yet.  Coral is trying to make friends all the time with Chloe so I know it will happen soon.  I will send pictures etc. later on so all of you can see her at play.  She loves to be brushed.

Kindest regards,

Dear Tammy,

Maggie May (now Mishka) made it home safely. As expected, she was very timid and cautious when we opened the carrier.  That lasted about 3 minutes, after which she was very curious about her new home and explored. The other cats were less than happy to have her in the home. I had my mom dogsit our Leonberger so that Mishka could acclimate to her new surroundings without a giant beast putting her on edge.

After about 30 minutes she discovered my bed and found it to be the most wondrous thing. On the bed she turned into a vicious little monster shredding my hands in a game of bed-mice. She quickly overcame any timidness she initially had. She has been very bold towards the other kitties that weren't happy to have her here.
In less than a day she was answering to her new name. Her vicious playfulness is only matched by her love and sweetness. No matter how she's feeling she's always ready with a very loud purr! She likes to be in whatever room I'm in even if she's not interacting with me.
By Sunday evening Widget, the other kitten was playing with her (though still hissing at her whenever she thought I was watching). Now the two of them chase each other and tumble throughout the house. My older cat is too old for these youngsters and still isn't happy. I think secretly she enjoys having Mishka here so that Widget is no longer trying to play, ambush, and attack her. Today she's finally decided to come back up on the bed, still a bit of the cold shoulder but she's coming along.
Mishka still isn't to thrilled with Kodie, the big dog. She's ok being in the same room with her as long as she doesn't get too close. Kodie is a good and sensitive dog and although she's anxious to meet Mishka up close is keeping her distance and will do that until Mishka comes to her.
Mishka seems to love her new home with us and we absolutely love having her as part of the family.
Thank you again for making our family possible.

Gratefully,

Micah DuMontier

Hi Tracy,
Thanks for checking in.  Little Triscuit, we are calling Trixie is doing so well.  She and her big brother Ruby are getting along great.  I've attached a few pics.  One is of her and brother napping on the sofa.  The other was her first deer sighting which was of great interest.  We are all in love with our little girl.  Hope you are having a good weekend.
Thank you, Kelli

The kittens are happy and healthy. We fell in love with them immediately. We have a large dog crew and three other indoor cats that we introduced to them slowly. Charlie Foxtrot ( we renamed him Romulus) was obviously raised with dogs because he was super cool with them immediately. Mimi (renamed Flora) took a couple of weeks. She now rubs up on them. They are both lap kitties and love to snuggle, especially Flora. She prefers to sleep on somebody. Their big brother Harrison likes to snuggle with them and groom them. Here are some current photos of them.

Hello Tracy, this is an update on the kitten we adopted on 6/22/15. He is a great addition to our family. The kids have named him Ringo, and he is spoiled rotten. Here is a picture of Ringo with Corbin and Payton. Have a great day.

Hi Tammy,
I wanted to drop a line to thank you for all your help regarding Darwin, and to let you know how we are doing.
It's been about a week but we feel like he has been part of our lives for so long. The other cats have adjusted and all want to be friends.
We really like to look at Darwin in person and not through a camera thousands of miles away!

I will attach a couple pictures so you can know just how spoiled this little man is.

Thanks Again,
Linda

Hi Cheryl and Charlie!  Just wanted to touch base with you and let you know Bronson and Cheez-it are best of buds! Caught Bronson snuggling with baby with his arm over him as they slept in the window ledge.  This is actually the top of a built in dresser in our closet with a large panoramic window above it.  They LOVE this space because they can watch all the birds, grey squirrels, etc. like national geo adventures! Of course they have a nice soft cushy blanket to lay on which gets plugged in in the winter for warmth. :-) spoiled rotten.  Just the way we like it!

We love our kitties!!! They are adapting well to their new home and enjoy each other as well as us. They also have great names.

Kitten 11745 is Marco (dark tabby) and kitten 12316 is Polo (orange tabby). Yes, Marco Polo…an explorer and also a game kids play in the pool. These two are both explorers with Marco (2 weeks older) taking the lead. They may start out alone but quickly are a pair in just about all they do…always looking for each other to play. Both kitties are amazingly affectionate…I actually think Polo believes I am his mom. He adopted me at the Cat House and that hasn’t changed. Both kitties also love my husband Dean as well and he is happy that they seem to love sitting in his lap. Both kitties purr A LOT and Polo has a tiny little meow. Oddly enough Marco hasn’t meowed at all yet…but we know his learning is excellent. Our floor is strewn with cat toys once again…lots of fun!

Thanks so much…you do such a wonderful service for the animals you rescue!

Sugar is doing well and is very happy.  I went on vacation and she had two petsitters.  Pinky the petsitter is in love with Sugar.  I was happy to come back home.
Sugar got groomed this week and she looks gorgeous.
Hope you are getting lots of good pet adoptions.  Jewel

Angie and Izzie are growing like weeds!  Augie's weak, wobbly hind quarters seem not to get in his way of doing anything he wants to do.  He literally hauls himself up to the highest deck of the cat tower we got for them with his front legs only and he charges up and downstairs like nobody's business and faster than Izzie.

Izzie got an eye infection last weekend that dictated a vet visit, but after 4 days of administering eye ointment, which was not fun, we can now see both of her beautiful blues!

We absolutely love our 2 new babies and, from all indications, they have adjusted very well and are learning to love us, too.

Thanks again to Tammy and everyone at Cathouse on the Kings.

Best wishes,
Rosanna

Bijou formerly Alpha is doing fantastic!  She has made her self right at home and loves everybody!  She is the perfect addition to our family!  We love her so much!  She has never been afraid from the moment we got in the car to bring her home.  She is outgoing, playful and very affectionate.  Thank you so much for letting us adopt her!  Her name fits her perfectly.  She is a jewel!  There are no words to tell you how much I love this little girl!!!  She was meant to be a member of our family!  We are very lucky  to have found her.  She is eating, drinking and eliminating just fine.  We bought a bag of Royal Canin kitty and she will continue to eat that until she is 1 year old.  I will stay in touch and send pictures as she grows.  As you can tell by this picture taken the first day we brought her home she is very relaxed and happy in her new enviroment!  Thank you!   Karen Madrigal
