Emma: “has taught me so much about cat behavior, and about unconditional love.”

November 18, 2013

As you can see, Emma has me wrapped around her paw!  But I wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s such a sweetheart and as smart as can be.  It took me only a week to train her to stay off my computer desk.  She would walk on my computer and scanner and make all sorts of weird and wonderful things happen.  So I decided the computer desk was off limits. I knew she was doing it for attention, so whenever she jumped on it I calmly left the room. She quickly figured out what I was doing, tested it out a few times, and now rarely jumps on it anymore.  When she does, all I have to do is get off my chair, and she jumps down.  So now when she wants attention, she looks up at me and meows and of course she gets it!
Emma has taught me so much about cat behavior, and about unconditional love.  I’m so glad we found each other. September 26 is the anniversary of Emma coming to me.
Thank you.
Sincerely,
Ju Hyeon.

Volunteer of the Month: September 2013

Congratulations to Ashley T, our September Volunteer of the Month! Ashley has been volunteering since May 2012, first as a foster parent, then as an event/social media coordinator. Right now, she’s fostering my 20th KittyKind cat—four 7-week-old kittens!! Ashley came to KittyKind as a prospective adopter. She says, “I originally planned to adopt an older cat, but when I explained my circumstances to the adoption team, they suggested that I try fostering. My first foster cat was King Oreo (who I actually ended up fostering twice). At some point, fostering became a regular thing, and I’ve gradually taken on more and more responsibility at KittyKind. I just launched an Instagram account (kittykindcats) and I’m hoping to become an assistant adoption counselor soon!”

Ashley says her favorite part of volunteering is being a foster parent. “Every time I take in a foster cat, I feel like I make a new best friend! I guess my favorite part would have to be seeing the very different personalities of each of the cats I foster. I don’t think most people realize how individualistic cats are if they only have one or two. I’ve had shy cats, cuddly cats, absolutely crazy cats, cats that can speak! I enjoy getting to know them so much. It’s not terrible seeing them get adopted either! :)” Ashley has one cat of her own, her “foster fail,” Misty, featured in the photo above. “I adopted her in June after I graduated college. There was no way I could give her back a second time (I fostered her twice). Misty was very stressed out in the cage so no one got to see her colorful, feisty, personality except me (she’s a typical calico princess). She’s just so expressive, smart, and well-mannered. There’s no other cat like her, period. Misty runs our house now… She absolutely knows how special she is.” Ashley also has special words of advice for those considering adoption. “Consider adopting an older cat. A lot of people come in to the adoption center wanting to adopt kittens (which is great!) but there are also plenty of older cats waiting to find their forever homes who are just as adorable! Also, if you meet a cat who you are thinking of adopting, but who seems unfriendly or antisocial, PLEASE give him/her a chance! If you show love to an animal they will
return that love tenfold! My cat Misty is a perfect example of a cat whose confinement in a cage was the determining factor for why it was so difficult to adopt her.” Thank you, Ashley, for all you do for KittyKind—we and the cats sure do appreciate it!

Olive (aka Tuxi): “quite a sassy and independent little girl.”

When I first saw Tuxi (renamed Olive), I was immediately attracted to her compact size and sweet face. She had just been delivered to KittyKind for adoption and was eager to make contact, purring and meowing through the cage. I couldn’t resist her cuteness so I took her home. She’s been with me 5 months now and has proven to be quite a sassy and independent little girl. Some of her favorite things are watching the toilet flush, massaging her mom’s tummy and lounging in the window sill. She’s also a formidable  hunter, stalking silverfish and catching flies. Flirting with male humans is another of her favorite pastimes when opportunity allows. I’m still watching her blossom and still getting to know her multifaceted personality. She’s an adorable, lovable companion.
Thank you so much, KittyKind, for all your help.

Puppy (aka Cherry): “She earned her new name because she is very smart…”

October 18, 2013

Cherry, who I now call Puppy, earned her new name because she is very smart and comes when I call her, sits when I ask and sometimes even does a “high five”.
She loooooves her older ” ginger boyfriend”, Maui, my 9 year old tabby. They share everything including taking turns sleeping on my head at night! But she is very confused and instead of sleeping likes to “groom” me so I always wake up with slobbery hair in the morning. LOL, But as long as they love me, that’s all I care about.
She is also a celebrity and has been on CBS’s Supercat Saturday 3 times now because Amy Freeze loves the pictures that I tweet of Puppy. She is SO photogenic!!! I am also working on socializing her a bit because I have a friend who is a designer and wanted to see if she could “model”. Puppy is a giant ham so I think she might like it!
Lastly, her absolute favorite thing to do is a running leap into a chair I have on rollers so that it spins around when she jumps into it,  and she sticks her head out of the armrest as it spins! It makes me laugh every time!!!
Thanks again to you and Kitty Kind, best decision I’ve made this year!
Cheers,
Donna, Maui and Puppy
