Gracie & Sophie: “They are so wonderful, exuberant, crazy and fun!”

May 29, 2011

They are so wonderful, exuberant, crazy and fun!  They both are very “cat-like” but also have a cuddly side too…not too often- but we understand- there’s so much to do!  They have adjusted and have grown so big.  They appear to be healthy growing cats.  Be assured that we love love love them and have been so happy that we made the step to adopt!
All the best, Vivian & Scott

A whimsical Grandpa, who is a senior and FIV+cat, is enjoying his new home!!!

May 21, 2011

[KittyKind rescued Grandpa, a senior, FIV+ cat, who was found malnourished, matted, and a mess!  With KittyKind’s help, and the compassion and care of his adopters, Grandpa is enjoying a new lease on life …..]

Thanks for checking in on Grandpa – he’s doing great, and is settling in nicely.  It’s taken him awhile, but he’s started to calm down quite a bit and now just spends most of his time sleeping in the sun.  That is, when he’s not sleeping on one of us!  We’ve joked that we should change his name to “Barny”, short for “Barnacle”. All he wants out of life is to be held and loved, which we’re thrilled with!  He’s also become incredibly playful – he chases toys up and down the hallway and has a stuffed banana that seems to be his favorite toy (although it probably helps that it’s filled with catnip).  He’s such a sweet, loving cat and we’re so happy that he’s part of our home!

I’ve attached a picture of Grandpa sleeping on the couch – as you can see his fur is starting to grow back in.

Thank you for all of your hard work and efforts to help find homes for cats such as Grandpa!

Dave: “He also gives head butts when he wants love and attention.”

May 16, 2011

Dave is doing wonderful! He is such a sweet and loving cat. He loves to cuddle up on my bed and wrap himself around my arm. He absolutely loves his toys and is such a sweet cat he even gives kisses on the forehead of my roommates cat. He also loves to lick/give kisses to other people by licking peoples hands. He is still a little shy, which I think he always will be but he is so loving! He also gives head butts when he wants love and attention. He is just such a wonderful and loving cat! I cannot thank you for all your help!

Volunteer of the Month: May 2011

May 5, 2011

Congratulations to Lauren D, our May’s Volunteer of the Month, Lauren continues to manage our Facebook page wonderfully. She started as a Friday PM cleaner at the beginning of 2009 after wanting to volunteer for KK ever since she adopted one of her cats from us back in 2005, this gave her the opportunity. She adores cats and knowing KittyKind is all volunteer she knew we could use the help and are doing it for the love of animals. Lauren loves hearing the happy stories from people that have adopted their cats from us and how they have impacted their lives, she also loves being able to drum up donations, she adds, “without financial support we’d never be able to do what we are doing.” She loves volunteering and has volunteered elsewhere but KittyKind is more of a passion of hers. She currently has 3 cats of her own. Lauren also wants to add: “Since I started our Causes page, we have 1,966 members and raised over $2,000, our page is doing well and we have a lot of loyal supports”. Well done Lauren you do a great job and a valuable member of the volunteer team! This month’s nominations also included: Lolita W, Anastasia H, and Deniz E, for being such fantastic new additions to their respective crews, Tasha W, for being there each and every Tuesday AM, and Lucia Capella, for being such a hard worker and always having a smile on her face – Lucia, we will miss you!!

***Winners are chosen at random from all nominees.
