Hattie

Posted on 6/10/2014 by Happy Endings Administrator

Dear MEOW Cat Rescue!

First of all, thank you for allowing such a sweet kitty into our lives! After just having lost our 18 year old tuxedo kitty, it's like this was meant to be. The first couple days, Hattie didn't eat much, and was very skittish, which isn't surprising with being in a new environment.  She's still a little skittish, but adjusting nicely.  And definitely eats well! Maybe too well! Anyhow, we LOVE and ADORE her, and are so happy to give her the chance of a good, happy, loving home.  We recently had her wellness check at the vet (I chose a Cats-Only vet because of her history with dogs).  He's very happy with how she looks and with how well you took care of her!

Again, we LOVE her!! Best wishes to you all!

Cookie

Hi there!
               We wanted to update you on our adoptee from last summer. Cookie had survived some traumatic experiences before coming to live with us, including having kittens with severe hemmorhage and being dumped by her previous owner. When we took her home from MEOW  last August, she had just recovered from an eye infection, and had been diagnosed with asthma (she was on prednisone & eyedrops) but was a very sweet and loving young girl. We took her to our vets at West Seatle Animal Hospital. They recommended stopping the prednisone gradually, mostly to see if the coughing was getting worse or better.  Her coughing continued to subside, which led us to believe asthma wasn't the major issue. As she interacted with the other kitties, she established her place in the household and found a perch to claim as her own. Within about 3 months, she was not coughing at all and figured out how to get what she wanted from "her" people (she owns us; we don't own her!) She loves her forever home, especially the windows and is one of the most affectionate cats we have had. Her "best friend" is our 15 year old Persian "Chantilly" and they often use teamwork when they are wanting; a treat or even a little milk. She is a gem and we are sooooooo happy to have adopted her! She is the 3rd cat that I have adopted from MEOW.  Thanks for bringing her into our lives.

Axel

Posted on 4/26/2014 by Happy Endings Administrator

Hi,

My husband and I adopted a 1 year old male cat named Axel on April 5th, and I wanted to let you know how he is doing. After a couple of days of being extremely shy, he has now come out of his shell, and oh boy, is he a talker! He will excitedly tell us stories from his day. He loves playing with a toy ball we got him, as well as getting belly rubs (which is his favorite activity!). He has been the most pleasant cat, and was clearly well trained by his previous owner. I really enjoy going home to him each day, and he really loves playing and hearing how good he is! He seems just so happy to have someone to love him. 
 
Thanks for allowing us the opportunity for having this little piece of joy. :) He's a treasure! 
 
Regards,
Anne & Philip

Hello MEOW,

I can’t believe it has been another year already!  I have been in my forever home for two years and I wanted to let you know how I am doing.  I was not sure what pictures of me to send since I am so adorable, so I sent a few.  One is of me sleeping with my paws over my face, it may seem uncomfortable but I like sleeping like that.  One is me sacked out on the bed.  I get complaints that for a small cat I take up quite a bit of the bed but I need my room! One is me with my sister Missy relaxing on the back of the chair.  The last picture is me and my new scratcher which I love. 

Keep up the good work in finding other kitties the love that I have found with my family and I will be in touch again!

Regards,

Dudley (Missy too)

Simon

Simon weighs ten pounds now. This ten pound bundle of joy is doing great and loves humans. He gets up with me every morning and when I get out of bed, he stands up on his hind legs and kisses my face. He acts like I'm the most wonderful human he has ever known and waits for me to get ready so he can go downstairs with me. He is the most happy cat I have ever known.
Just touching base,
Al

Lil Bit and Lil Romeo

Posted on 1/16/2014 by Happy Endings Administrator

Hi,

I adopted my two beautiful babies (Lil' Bit & Bam Bam) just a few days before Christmas and it took them till the weekend after to stop hiding under the bed while I was at work. I loved that when I got home, I could go straight to my room and look under the end of bed and find the two of them there. Once I took them out, one by one and cuddled them, they would spend the rest of the day playing all over the apartment! They were NOT fond of New Years Eve though! I was out of the apartment when the fireworks went off and when I came home (even though the noise had stopped) it took me about 2 hours to get them out from under the bed! Both of them are HUGE cuddler's and compete for my whole lap! Whoever doesn't sit on my lap will climb up and sit on my shoulder until the other knocks them off. I did change Bam Bam's name to Lil Romeo (Bam Bam just didn't suit him). Lil Bit recently discovered that she does NOT like bath tubs full of water, when she decided to walk the edge of a full bath that was draining! She fell in and was out before Lil Romeo knew what happened! About 5 minutes after that, Romeo found that he loves to play with spiders, but is not happy when they don't run or when I take them away! They sleep in my bed every night, usually starting out at my feet and ending up on my chest. These two are doing very well and are the PERFECT addition to my home!!

Athena

Posted on 1/16/2014 by Happy Endings Administrator

Hi MEOW,

My mom and I adopted my kitty, Athena, from you around ten years ago, as my Christmas present. I think she was called Adriana when you had her. She was seven months old, skinny and adorable. Now she's nearly ten years old, chubby, and still adorable. Even though she's been on a diet for quite a while now, she's pretty healthy, and we hardly ever have to take her for extra vet visits. She's also a very good kitty; her one thing she does that kind of annoys us is meowing very loudly in the morning.
 
Most of the time she just sleeps, and during the winter she likes to curl up on my feet (best space heater ever). I'm away most of the year for college these days, and I miss her whenever I have to go back to school. She misses me too; every time I get home she runs up to me, rubs my legs and purrs like a little motorboat, then follows me around like a puppy. She even comes when I call her sometimes! She doesn't really play; instead she sits on my bed while I sit at my computer and gives me a nice purring soundtrack (she's actually doing exactly that while I write this). Even when she's just sleeping, she's absolutely adorable. I'm thinking about trying to get into the school apartments that allow pets so that I can take her with me to school; having a kitty to purr at me after a long day of college work would be awesome.
 
Athena is my fuzzy buddy and I am so happy that you let my mom and I adopt her all those years ago.
 
Thank you so much!
Anya and Athena

Benji and Lindsey

Posted on 1/16/2014 by Happy Endings Administrator

We adopted siblings Benji & Lindsey just after Christmas in 2012. They're doing great! Super affectionate with the family and very happy to have found a home together! Benji sleeps beside our 3 year old son while Lindsey has adopted his 6 year old brother. We're lucky to have found each other.

Stevie & Lotus

Posted on 1/16/2014 by Happy Endings Administrator

Hi MEOW Team,

I wanted to send you an email and say THANK YOU so much for helping my husband and I meet our "fur children" Lotus Pot Pie and Stevie. We adopted the girls in mid June 2012 and they have been just an absolute joy to have in our life ever since. They are so full of energy and love, we enjoy so many laughs each day watching them play and hang out with us. They are not from the same litter but they took to each other instantly and constantly cuddle up with their paws wrapped around each other. Sisters for life :)

Stevie is quite the talker and enjoys having frequent conversations with us and telling us what she's thinking about life. She is a cuddle bug to boot. She curls up in our arms and likes to sleep on her back with her four paws sticking out, it's ridiculously cute. She also loves to talk to you while she's "sleeping". We make little noises and while she's curled up asleep, she'll meow at us. So stinkin' cute. Lotus is definitely my girl. She follows me around the house day and night and doesn't let me out of her sight. It's so sweet and she is just the biggest love and like Stevie, a big cuddle bug.  She has the softest, sweetest meows and loves to let her people know how much she loves them by giving lots of head bumps while purring as loud as she can. She loves to chase her feather toy and do amazing back flips and pirouettes to catch it.

We wanted to send you a special thank you for all that you do and are so grateful that you connect these amazing animals with their new forever homes. We love our girls and they will always have a forever home with us. We can't imagine life without them.

Thank you for connecting us with our very much loved fur children,
Kristin, Jake, Lotus and Stevie
