Mo:” playful, cuddly, and has the funniest little chirp of a meow.”

August 10, 2014


I emailed one of the wonderful KittyKind adoption coordinators expressing interest in adopting a “cat with character,” and she sent me a picture of Mo (formerly Elmo). The picture, taken at a vet visit, showed a visibly upset but adorable polydactyl tabby with big green eyes. Poor Mo had been moved around a lot and was finding it difficult to get comfortable at KittyKind or even a foster home. The more we found out about Mo’s story, the more determined we were to give him a chance! The day we met him was the day we were taking him home with us as a foster with intent to adopt. Mo was growling and upset, and no wonder – lots of strange cats around, a new place yet again, and in his stressed out state he wasn’t eating well. When his rescuers tried transferring him to the carrier, there was almost an escape! Luckily the four of us on site managed to get the angry little guy inside and Mo’s next adventure began. It took several long, patient weeks to earn Mo’s trust and for him to feel safe in his new digs but eventually he started to become more relaxed. The more we got to know his personality, the more smitten we became! Mo is playful, cuddly, and has the funniest little chirp of a meow. He’s still often shy, but we know he’ll continue to be a welcome addition to our family. The day we signed his official adoption papers, Mo came and sat on my lap for the very first time; I think he knew he had finally found his forever home.

Karl & Nicole: “We’re so lucky to have found a beautiful pair of healthy, happy companions for life…”

August 6, 2014


We knew we wanted a pair of young cats who could be playmates and when we walked into Kittykind we fell in love first with Karl who was just the biggest love bug! You could see in the cage that all he wanted was affection and so we knew we wanted him. Then we saw Nicole in her cage – she’d only been brought in that day, and she was just the cutest little thing. Then we found out she had a leg missing and that made us want her even more!!  We felt so sorry for her!  I’ve attached a couple of recent pictures of the little rascals!  They really are the best of friends and have such wonderful personalities. Nicole is so adventurous and playful, AND fearless – perhaps the attitude that got her into trouble with that leg. Karl is really affectionate and chilled out, and retains his timid streak with anything unfamiliar (hiding under the couch when the vacuum cleaner comes out or someone knocks on the front door). He’s slowly getting more confident though. We absolutely adore them both.

We can’t over-emphasize how amazing Kittykind were through the whole adoption process – they really understood the cats’ needs, they were available by phone and email any time for any questions, and we couldn’t have dealt with the complications of Nicole’s missing leg without their financial and emotional support. We’re so lucky to have found a beautiful pair of healthy, happy companions for life – thank you Kittykind!”
All best,
