Here’s an update from Kendal, his new guardian: “We couldn’t be happier together! I love seeing him get more and more comfortable. He loves to hold onto my arm while I pet his tummy and he will definitely let me know if he is not getting enough attention.”

I saw Bandit on my daughter-in-law Marci’s Fuzzy Undertones blog. Upon arrival at the homestead, I first went inside and closed Taz [my other cat] in my bedroom. We’re not integrated, yet, but progress is being made.
Just wanted to let you know that everything is going great! Maggie is still unsure of Aurora, our other cat, but she is slowly coming around. She really loves the dogs and plays everyday with one of them.
Lila and Otis were adopted into our family a few days before Christmas 2012… Lila is an exceptional kitty, with a curly tale that wraps around her back like a question mark. Lila enjoys being told how magnificent she is, daily.
Tucker is now a member of our family and things are well settled… our master cat, Kitty, still rules the roost but doesn’t feel the need to flex his dominance any more…. this has been a huge happy success.
Thanks for checking in on us. Here is a picture of Sagan and Dusk sharing a favorite lookout spot. We are enjoying our new family members so much, thanks for your help in placing them with us.
Tiki has been renamed to Virgil, and Toga is now James. They are so rambunctious and complete brother play buddies, it’s absolutely awesome to watch them play together and with our kids.
