Dakota is a spirited young calico cat who was adopted into a family with 2 dog brothers! It was a rough start and her new mom considered giving her up in the first week because she was having fits about the dogs and sharing her mom! But everyone hung in there and their patience paid off :-) Now she is the sweetest loving kitten a family could hope for. Dakota has made friends with both the dogs (they sleep together). Kei, who is pictured here with Dakota, is getting on in years and now has a new reason for living - a new baby to look after. So sweet and a great beginning for young Dakota.
Deacon's family wrote to let us know how much they appreciate IAATCI and how much they love Deacon. He is the most wonderful addition to their family. He adjusted very quickly. Â He slept with them the very first night and had no trouble finding the litter box. Â He is such a sweet and loving boy. It is true testament to IAATCI and the foster home, because it is clear that he came from a place where he was loved. He is very social and loves to eat when we eat, which is so cute. He knows his name and he comes when he is called. His favorite thing to play with is of course, post it notes, hair bands and paper towel roles. He likes it when his new mom slides dry food across the floor. They got him a kitty tower and he loves it. They love at night how he settles in with them on the couch and then comes up to bed with them. Mornings are the mom's favorite because he will usually come sit on her chest and look at her when she wakes up, or wrap himself up in her neck. Sometimes she lays with him and just watches him. She love him so much. The whole family does. He is perfect. His mom wants us to know how much joy she has felt and the happiness he has given all of his new family. They thank IAATCI for finding the perfect kitty for them.
Django's new mom wrote to tell us that he has become the perfect addition to her home after just one week. It was a bit tough the first two days - Django wouldn't come out when his new mom was home. But on Monday he came out of his hiding place and now he's just full of life. He's adjusting quite well, always wants to play. And when he's not playing, he's asleep on top of his new mom. He's being a great eater, using his litter box without issue, and very well behaved a far as furniture and climbing. His new mother did not realize she could fall in love so quickly with an animal but she has. Django definitely will be living a long happy life with his new mom - they were definitely meant to find each other.
Danae nka Sophie
Danae is doing well In her new home in Daytona Beach. Her new name is Sophie. She was a little quiet the first two days but is talkative now and enjoys exploring every inch of her home. On the third night she claimed a place on her new mom's bed and hasn't left. She is the only cat and enjoys being the center of attentiion. We are all very glad that she isn't in the Dunkin Donuts bushes or the parking lot any longer. She went from lonely to loved!
Dozer and Rose (nka Posie) were adopted in December of 2005. Their family has since moved to Seattle and recently sent us this update:
Dozer is a typical boy, he is a trouble maker. He gets into anything and everything, the clothes dryer, the refrigerator, a box or plastic bag. We have to be very careful with him because we never know where he is or what he is up to. He is very independent and has just recently starting looking for affection from others besides myself. He spends hours sitting at the window watching the birds and is very vocal. He lets you know when he wants something. He begs to go outside all the time, so I have given in and let him out on my balcony. (Supervised of course.) He is fascinated with water and doesn't really mind getting a bath.
Both cats seem to have adjusted to Seattle quit well. They have the windows open more, so they enjoy the fresh air. They both were curious with the snow and Dozer didn't seem to mind walking in it (on the balcony).
In closing, the family writes that the cats bring a lot of joy and laughter and they are lucky to be together in life.
