“I originally had three cats, Crusty, Explorer and Screamer,” says Kiondra. “When Screamer passed, Explorer got really depressed because she no longer had her buddy and she started terrorizing Crusty, who prefers to be left alone. I wasn’t sure I wanted to get another cat but it became clear that both of mine would be happier with another one in our home.

“Our home is alive again thanks to the antics of the amazing brother and sister kitten duo of Nora and Scooby,” admits Angela. “We had a beautiful, black shorthaired male cat for 23 years, and after we saw him over the Rainbow Bridge, we still had love in our hearts for another kitty. When we saw Nora and Scooby online, we knew that we needed them to fill up our hearts once more.

“My boss at work is Jaimie Garver, your new president,” Helen says, “and I got to know Furry Friends through her. When seven-month-old Ravenpaw came into the shelter, she posted on her Facebook page a fundraiser for his vet bills with videos of him bravely trying to pull himself around on his front paws, while having two seriously broken back legs. He must have been in a lot of pain, but he still wanted to play!

“We adopted our first cat, Walter, from Furry Friends in 2017,” Melissa explains. “And when we adopted Mr. Kitty, we kept his name because it just seemed to fit him. We call him MK for short. “Although we had to wait a few weeks before bringing him home (he underwent surgery on one of his eyes and needed to recuperate), it was worth the wait. And because our current cat, Walter, is extremely shy, we felt he needed a more extraverted cat to help bring him out of his shell.

“I’ve had cats for over 30 years,” says Holly. “After I lost my beloved tortie, Schnapps, to GI lymphoma, I was looking online for another family member or two.

“Oliver is our third cat,” says Carolyn, “and after adopting him, we changed his name from Allegro to Oliver. It was LOVE at first sight. He actually looked very similar to our dear Oscar who we lost almost two years ago. Oliver had the cute little ear tips Oscar had, and I’ve always loved this in cats. Then his cute little eyes and face. He had an adorable little growl while playing with his toy with us. And he was such a cuddler.

“Luna has been an absolute blessing in my life,” explains an elated Gabrielle. “She has made me feel whole again since the passing of my beloved cat GG. “She’s one of the most complex cats I’ve ever owned. She’s incredibly bright, and once she knew that living with me was permanent, she turned into an absolute ham. Having started out playing with only one black rabbit-hair mouse, she’s widened her range of toys, and especially enjoys playing with balls made of yarn – playing until she’s panting and pooped.

“Coco (formerly Angel) is my second cat,” Angela explains. “I lost my first one, Kittycat, at the age of 17 in May, 2016. “I went to see another kitty at the PetSmart Adoption Center in Hazel Dell. I visited with that kitty awhile, but then I saw Coco and asked to play with her. She jumped right up on my lap and began making biscuits, rubbing and looked into my eyes. I knew then that we were a match.
