Pippin “has made some serious paw prints on my heart”

July 25, 2014

After living alone in my new apartment for 6 months, I realized there was something missing. I did thorough research and decided KittyKind was the perfect avenue for me to adopt a four-legged roommate. I arrived at KittyKind excited to meet all of the animals looking for a human. I saw close to a dozen before meeting Pippin, but once I did I knew there was something special about him. Maybe it was his sweet eyes; maybe it was his adorable clipped ear; or maybe it was his immediate need for a belly rub. Either way I knew Pippin was a sweet little man. I put in an application for him, and I truly could not wait to see him again. A week later I was able to pick up Pippin!!

It took Pippin all of ten minutes to make himself master of the house. He jumped onto my bed, couch, kitchen table, coffee table — you get the idea. He cuddled up to me pretty quickly, and we haven’t stopped bonding ever since.

He loves jumping onto my bed every morning before I get ready for work, stalking birds from my kitchen window, and watching re-runs of Law and Order. When I get home from work, Pippin runs to my feet and flops over looking for that belly rub. In the past month, Pippin has made some serious paw prints on my heart, and he is the reason why my apartment feels like a home. Thank you so much for introducing me to Pippin!!!!

The King and I

July 25, 2014

King Tut has had my heart from the moment I brought him home. Affectionate, inquisitive, and with stately manners – he is the perfect addition to the family. He simply devours attention and is ready to snuggle or chase his toys anytime.  It’s only been four months, but we have already been through a lot together including a transition to a wet diet, many visitors (everyone falls in love with him immediately!), and learning to stay off the dining room table.  He even stayed by my side while I was bed-ridden with the flu for three days.  While I am away at work, he curls up with my favorite sweatshirt and then greets me at the door when I get home. Without fail he wakes me up each morning before my alarm with a headbutt to the face or a very cautious paw to my cheek. I’m not a morning person at all, but who can be mad when staring into those big, green eyes?!
King Tut was 11yrs old at the time of adoption and a lot of people expressed surprise that I would favor a mature cat, but I find his cheeky personality to be the perfect blend of mischievous, confident, and silly. I am so happy that he is happy in his forever home.

Tigger “is loving, funny, gentle, and pretty much the best cat we could have asked for. “

Tigger and I found each other at just the right moment. I’d been going through a tough time, and my husband thought a furry friend might help me cope. Tigger was going through a tough time too–he had been surrendered by his owner of 5 years and then had to leave his foster mom of two months. At almost 20 lbs, he was too big for his enclosure, and at 8 years old, he was older than a lot of the other cats competing for a home. He had stopped eating and had developed a cold. The night after I met him I couldn’t sleep thinking about him, and I knew I was going to find a way to take him home.

 
We’ve now had Tigger for 3 months, and it’s hard to say who has helped who more. He spends his days following us around the apartment, sleeping on our laptops while hogging 80% of the couch, watching the birds outside, and playing a batting game with his favorite toy, a ping pong ball with a feather on top. I spend my days looking forward to getting home to kiss the top of his head, and whenever I am feeling overwhelmed, knowing that at the end of the day he will be cuddled up next to me, purring and snoring (and sometimes drooling a little bit) instantly makes me feel better. He is loving, funny, gentle, and pretty much the best cat we could have asked for. Thank you KittyKind for our new buddy!

Hootie “has a playful, rambunctious, and mischievous nature”

When my husband and I went looking for a new companion for our 4 year old female cat, our hearts were heavy with the recent loss of our 14 year old male cat to a sudden illness. We knew we wanted our female cat to have another lively companion, but we were both unsure how much room we had in our hearts for a new member of the family. Luckily, we found Roebling (Hootie), and fell in love with his playful, sweet nature immediately. “Roebles” is everything you could want in a teenaged cat- he has a playful, rambunctious, and mischievous nature, which alternates with a surprising sweet and cuddly side. This cat tears around our house causing trouble, making us laugh and smile, and then recovers his energy by sleeping an hour or so in Mommy or Daddy’s arms. His favorite toy is a “My Little Pony” doll- Roebling tosses “Pinkie Pie” around the house constantly. He is definitely a Brony cat. 🙂 After an initially rocky beginning, the two cats are very happy and playful together, and love sleeping near each other. We will always miss our first cat, but the love Roebling gives us has helped us heal from our loss, and taught us that there is always room for more love in your life. We are so very grateful to everyone at KittyKind who helped us become a family.  🙂
