Valentine’s Day at KittyKind

February 17, 2009

This past Saturday, Valentine’s Day, KittyKind partnered with Petco to have pet portraits taken with Cupid. Thanks to Petco, Josey ( KK volunteer who dressed up as Cupid) and to the Mayors Alliance and Maddie’s Fund for sending over Maddie to help us spread the word about I Love NYC Pets Month.

Tamarind and Little Tiger Find a Home

Little Tiger

On October 2, 2008, we adopted Little Tiger (10 months old) and Scilla (aka Tamarind, 6 months old) from Kitty Kind at Petco. We visited a couple of times before deciding to adopt Little Tiger, and possibly her cage mate Valentine….until Leisa met Scilla (aka Tamarind). Leisa was so excited after meeting Tamarind that we HAD to go back ASAP and adopt the two. While we were filling out the paperwork, several people saw Tamarind and REALLY wanted her. We are very thankful that we were the lucky ones and got Tamarind AND Little Tiger.

They didn’t like the taxi ride home all that much, and kept to themselves and their separate rooms for the first day, but ever since they are best friends; sleeping and playing together, as well as bathing each other more than any cats that either of us have owned.

Tiger immediately took to the window perch and loves to watch the outside world. She absolutely loves her fuzzy balls that I got her at Petco and now plays fetch with them. She will play fetch with us and use the balls alone for hours on end without tiring. She also loves to sit on clothes after they come out of the dryer and has been known to sleep on my towels, after pulling them down from the towel rack. Keeps me doing my laundry a little more frequently :p

Tamarind had a little mouse toy when we adopted her, and she really loved it. We have bought her more and she will play with them for hours! She is a very affectionate little kitty and has become quite the little lap cat, as well as computer cat; although her typing skills haven’t improved, no matter how much practice she gets ;p. She also likes to sleep with us, as demonstrated when she lies on TOP of Leisa and I when we sleep. I have never met a cat who likes water as much as she does either…although she has been a little more timid around water after falling into the shower.

We are very thankful for the rescuers and volunteers who made this all possible and whole-heartedly recommend Kitty Kind to everyone.
