I have been volunteering with Furry Friends since February of 2023. I decided to volunteer at some sort of rescue when I started to “get an itch” to get another cat! I thought that volunteering would scratch that itch and I wouldn’t have to adopt another one. Two months later, we adopted our little girl Rhubarb (previously Phoenix), who joined our 5-year-old Siamese mix named Rosie and our 3-year-old German Shepherd named Juniper.

“Frankie, formerly Firefly, is our first kitty as a couple,” Ali says. “I’ve had cats my whole life while she’s Emerson’s first cat.
“We chose Frankie because of her sweet face and unique coat. We also were further encouraged when we met her, and her foster mom described how sweet and snuggly she was. She adjusted pretty well to our home. Initially, she was a little scared, but she simply needed extra snuggles and love to help her become acclimated.

“Originally named Doe and Buck, these two are my first kitties, and they’re now called Mazzy (the sister) and Momo, (the brother). I was looking to adopt last year once I moved into my own apartment since I’ve always wanted kitties. I knew I wanted a bonded pair so they would always have company. When I was looking online, I saw them on the Furry Friends website and felt I needed to apply for them.

“Mr. Floofmeister is our third kitty,” says Laura. “We have two female kitties named Catmeat and Diva. We had no plans to get a third cat, but we were browsing the Furry Friends website (as one does) and instantly fell in love with Mr. Floofmeister. We kept his original name so we wouldn’t give him an identity crisis. While his name is Mr. Floofmeister, he likes to go by Floofy for short.

Amy has volunteered at Furry Friends since October 2022. The retired RN had seen a story about us on the news and knew that she wanted to help. She used to volunteer every Wednesday and Friday but had to stop once the school year started since she’s currently a substitute teacher.
