Heart-warming stories of adopted pets and the people who love them.
Amazing Foster Family - Thank you!
Nosey (formerly Neville)
During the holidays of 2017 we lost our cat of 16 years to cancer. It left a whole in the heart of the entire family that we struggled to fill. After about 8 months of mourning, the family decided that we were ready to adopt a new cat. It was kitten season at the shelter and we all fell in love with this little guy after reading his description and seeing the picture. Nosey (formerly Neville) and his kitten siblings had been fostered by a family that had young children and dogs....just like us!! The description said that Nosey was particularly fond of dogs....which is exactly what we were looking for! Our 8 year old dog never really got to play with our previous cat because she was older when he arrived in the household as a puppy. We were looking forward to getting a younger cat that would enjoy playing with him. Turns out the gamble paid off. Nosey adores our dog and they have daily wrestling matches followed by cuddles on the couch. Nosey is the most easy-going cat I've ever owned. He lets the kids cart him around on their shoulder like a sack of flour, and he loves to go for rides with them in the doll stroller! He naps on a bed on top of my desk during the day and gives great cuddles at night. We wanted to write this note as a huge THANK YOU to the foster family that helped raise him to be the awesome cat that he is. We hope you are reading this and that you keep fostering. You have inspired us to consider fostering in the future so that we can do the same for other animals in need. We could not be happier with our little guy. Thank you for all you do!
