Lily is doing wonderful! We are in love with her already. She is so loving/ affectionate and so easy going. She was totally calm and ok with me trimming her nails. She loves her human sisters and follows me around like a dog would. She has her first wellness checkup with our local vet next week. They said she has to get a rabies vaccine in order to be seen and a patient of theirs.  I called the microchip company today to update them on my information.

I bought the kitty litter and kitten food ( blue wilderness) the ladies at the shelter told me she was using. So her diet is the same. I will be slowly incorporating whole earth farms though. The first night she didn’t eat much, but did drink water. The next morning and still now she is eating well. I keep looking on FB for our adoption picture, can’t wait to see it:).  I will send some pictures of her after this email.

Hello Cat House on the Kings!
Kai is doing absolutely wonderful in her forever home. We have decided to rename her Nala. She can’t get enough running around in complete spaz mode every single night when we try to go to bed. Nala is such a sweet heart and so smart she’s trying her absolute best to get our older cat to accept her. We messed up introducing them initially because we were too excited to have them meet but we are working very hard to fix that and Nala is right there trying her hardest as well. She loves to attack anything that moves or doesn’t (including our shoes) and loves to stalk us or the older cat by hiding behind doors or under beds. She has become so immediate attached to both her new parents but of course if her new dad is here she seems to love cuddling in his big arms over her momma. We can’t even separate the to cats to spend one on one time with the older one without Nala becoming very upset she’s not being included. We are so happy to have little monkey with us and will continue to update you guys with pictures as she grows!

Hello Cat House on the Kings,

Thank you for your email checking in about Kevin. I apologize for the delay in my response. Kevin is doing very well. He was at ease here right away and we got comfortable with each other right away. I considered a variety of different names, but Kevin is the name that stuck. :) I am currently in the process of leash training him so that he can be certified as an emotional support animal. He is incredibly friendly and social and enjoys walking in the park and meeting new people. I think being a support animal is a great fit for his personality and energy. I have attached a few pictures.

Tammy,

After a long journey, everyone is at home loving life! So, here’s a family photo of us! Now that they’re both super comfortable, it’s hard to get them to sit still.

Both are amazing, special kitties and we are so thankful! Ruby is a fearless kitty who has a ferocious little growl for her tiny size and Blue (16595, he may be named Olaf, Leo, or Andy...he’s still opening up!) is such a lover and is really starting to get over being scared.

Once Brett’s cat, Olive, adjusts we will send an updated photo. Thanks for helping us add to our small family!

Hi Karla--

I got to stay home from work the other day because we had a lot of snow, so Django and Gypsy had to entertain me for the day. They finally got to rest, and I got a great photo of them looking out the window into the front yard. I'm using it as a screensaver on my computer at work, and thought you'd like it, too.

They are such good cats, and I love them dearly. They're getting so BIG!!! Especially Django. Gypsy is struggling to maintain her girlish figure, but it's tough when there's so much food available. They really like baked chicken, warm from the microwave, for breakfast and dinner. Yes, they're very spoiled.

I hope you all are doing well.

Hi Kristen! She’s doing great! The kids decided to name her Luna. Our
other cat, Lilly, wasn’t thrilled and pretty much kept a 20 foot distance
from her for the first week, but Luna has been a trooper and keeps trying
to get Lilly to play. They are now getting along well and have even chased
each other around a bit. She’s very playful and curious, and loves all
treats, especially tuna :-)
She’s already claimed a favorite spot on one of the chairs and can be
found just lounging around sprawled out on the floors too. She’s a happy
kitty and we’re so happy to have her too! I’ve attached a few pics...

Hi Kristen,

Thank you for reaching out!

We are completely in love (I may be obsessed) with these little babies.  I
could send pictures all day so am stopping myself at 3!  The General (aka
Tubbs, aka Good Sir) and Lady Whiteshadow (Shadow aka Princess aka Little
Hen aka Little Chinchill ... they will never learn their names) have
adjusted wonderfully - they even travelled home to Iowa with us over
Christmas and did a great job with the flights and settling into their home
away from home for 10 days.

He was 5kg in early Dec when we did the final round of shots at the vet,
earning his nickname Tubbs, and she was 4kg; both healthy and very popular
at the vet’s office.  They are both so sweet: comfortable with all humans,
sleep next to us every night, and never want to be apart for more than a
minute or two.  He is a ferocious hunter of fake mice, and she is an
incredible jumper when lasers are involved.

Have a good one - and thank you again for letting their new home be ours!

Hi.  That sweet baby is doing great. We can't  imagine what it was like before him.  His sweet playful nature has helped to tame my little wild child Amy. I am sending you a picture of the two of them.  Definitely a sweet addition to our already massive pet family.
Have a blessed day and thank you for checking in on us.

Hello Tracy,

Holland, whose new name is Spoons, is doing great! She is a delightful kitty, and brings much joy to my son and I. She was shy only the first day, but when she realized that we respect her privacy, she became playful and happy.

She is quite clever, and expressive - she makes people, who have not much experience with cats ( some of our guests) easily understand, what she wants from them.

She is very affectionate to my son and I. When both of us are in the living room, she tries to share her attention between both of us, so neither one will feel left out - it's so cute!

I am attaching three photos so you can see for yourself.

Thank you for checking on her, I really appreciate you taking a great care of cats even after adoption!


Kind regards,


Bella

Hi there!

Seamus is doing great in his new home :) our other cats haven't warmed 100% yet but we are  keeping them separate when we aren't able to supervise them. No lashing out from the other two, just hissing and growling which we expected. Seamus is a total lover who hasn't hissed once or even growled since being adopted. He likes to cuddle and burrow in blankets. He also likes being held and stays very calm. I am sure after a little more time our two kitties will warm up to him.

Hi Tracy,
They are the best babies ever! We renamed our girl to Lucy, so it's Benny and Lucy now. They are doing well and keep us very entertained. They eat like little piggies and aren't afraid to try to swipe treats from the two big cats. Our 7 year old male had a rough time for about a month, but he is settling down and tolerating their mischief more now. Our 14 year old  female actually plays with them a bit, and seems to enjoy just watching them tussle with each other. She adjusted to them quickly.
I am attaching pictures so you can see how spoiled and content they are.

Thanks,

Hi! Thank you for the email. They are doing well. They are playing and sleeping and eating and drinking and poo'ng and pee'ng! There first vet appt w our vet, Dr Hagus, is next Monday the 26th. They are due for their next boosters I believe as their birth dates are 030617 per their paperwork.

They have their own room full of toys beds cat trees litter food etc. they have the run of the back of the house w the hall door closed when the dogs are in, dogs on the other side of the door, and they have the run of the whole house when dogs are in.

We are trying to acclimate them to each other slowly. So far we've done the swap scents on fabric , we let the dogs smell the carrier I brought the kitten home in  then we let the kittens smell the carrier after the dogs had fully inspected it. They have had across the room face time , w the dogs on leashes and someone holding them and then someone holding the kittens one at a time. Hershey is fine w it , acts unfazed, Sheba is scared when she sees them so we put her back in the cat room. We've done that two days in a row. Face time in same room but different sides of room

I just don't want over excited dogs to accidentally hurt a kitten. Everyone is saying they'll be fine just let them meet each other. But how can you do that and know nothing will happen? If you have any suggestions were open to them.

The kittens are eating what we were told to give them. The Blue kitten kibble and fancy feast kitten ocean whitefish (or fancy feast kitty turkey) those are the only kittens one I think they make. And the fancy feast ocean whitefish was in the list on Amazon of things to donate so I'm assuming that's ok and the lady I was emailing w said that's ok

Hi Tracy,

Mike and Molly are both a great fit to our family and seem to have adjusted great to their 2 bothers and sister (my 3 children.) I think the best for them was when their brand new 75" cat tree arrived--it is their favorite hangout (aside from Molly laying in one of our laps or on any pile of laundry she can find!) They have both grown quite a bit and we just adore their cuddles and purrs!

Hi Tracy

The kittens are doing great thank you! We call them Skye and Islay now. They're very settled in and are total cuddlers. Very playful too. Skye has just curled up on my chest as I'm typing this! They've been to the vet for their boosters and are in good health. No concerns on our end, they've quickly become part of the family and are doing great. I'll attach a few photos.

I've asked before but is there any chance you could help me get the photo Heather took of me, my husband and the kittens when we picked them up? She said she'd send it to me but I never got it. We'd really like to have it.

Thanks and if you've any questions let me know.

Hi Tracy,

Jackson (we changed his name it JAX now :) ) has made our home complete.  Our older cat is back to being a sweetheart, because the middle cat and JAX play all the time and he can get some rest.  Jax transitioned into the house fairly well.  He likes his alone time, then other times wants to lay with either of his "brothers" and nap.  He loves to play with the laser pointer.  He's been a perfect fit for our home and we couldn't be happier. I've attached some pictures for your viewing pleasure.  If there's anything else you would like an update on, please feel free to contact me.

Thanks and have a great day!

Hi Tracy,

Thanks for checking in! We re-named him Smokey, and he is our sweet Smokey boy! We love him, and he's settled in well in his new home. He's sweet and loving, curious and playful, and a cuddly little guy. He's eating well and plays with his toys. He does great when we're both gone for work, and he's happy to see us when we get home and spend the evening playing and being near us.

I did have one question for you. I know from the paperwork, he has not been vaccinated for rabies. While he is absolutely an indoor cat, we live in a rural area where a number of animals have been found to have rabies in the past year. With that in mind, what is your opinion on getting him vaccinated for rabies?

We are so happy and grateful that Smokey is part of our family! I've attached a few of the many photos we've taken of him in the last month. We are so appreciative of the all you've done to take care of him so we could adopt such a wonderful sweet kitten.

Thank you!

Hi Tracy! Morti the Torti is doing very well! She was renamed to Nova. So her and her adopted sister are Nova and Scotia!
Nova has adjusted very well. She and her sister play, wrestle, and take long naps together. She is younger than Scotia but she sure is feisty and can put her sister in check! Lol I've attached some pictures. We couldn't be happier. Both kittens are such a joy to our family. They get lots of love, attention, treats and toys. They are spoiled little babies. 💕

Hi Tracy,

Since adopting Sid he has been renamed Rocky. My husband and I are completely in love with him and so is his older kitty sister, Stevie Wonderful. Stevie is 2 years old and also blind so they are a good match for each other. She was a little hesitant about him at first but now they are the best of friends; they play, cuddle, and take turns grooming each other. She has never been happier, and I think it goes the same for him ;)

We took Rocky to the veterinarian last week for a checkup and the vaccination recommended by the Cat House on the Kings. His vet discovered that he had an eye infection and prescribed antibiotics. The eyes have cleared up a lot since last week and are looking much better.

Thank you so much for taking in a litter of blind kittens. My husband and I are very grateful that Rocky and his siblings were rescued and adopted. A lot of rescue groups pass on blind cats because they are "less adoptable," Rocky and his siblings are proof that there are homes out there for blind cats :)

Thanks for all you do! I've attached a couple of pics of Rocky and Stevie Wonderful, please share with anyone who might like to see them.

Sincerely,
Nicole French

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.

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, 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,

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,
 Jenna

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, George is doing really well! He has made fast friends with our cat and is starting to warm up to the dog. He enjoys hanging out with people and is using his litter box and eating well. Here are a few shots of our new feline friend:

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,
Cookie and CreamPuff (aka Kandy) are doing great!  They are blending in well with the rest of the kitties we have and are running the show around here.  😺  I'm going to try to attach a quick video or at least a picture of them.  Thanks for caring and checking up on them.  Cat House on the Kings is a great organization and I am proud to be a part of it!

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,

Alan Miller

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.

Thank you,

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.
                           Sincerely,

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.

Hi Tracy,

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!
