Alumni News – Polly

Winny

Feline Rescue thinks the best way for you to get a feel for the work of the organization and it’s many dedicated volunteers is by letting our adopters (and their cats!) tell their own success stories.

Today we hear from Parker and Joel, who adopted Polly (now Winny) in November 2017.

Joel and I want to give you an update on how Polly is doing. First off, she did have a name change. Her name is officially Winny. She’s full of adventure! Winny has brought out the youthfulness in our 4 year old cat, Konga. They’re already best friends. They love to play hide and seek and groom each other.

Winny

Winny loves to sit in sinks when you’re trying to use them, jump on counters, and nap under the couch. She is quite the cuddler and has a mighty purrrrr!

We are SO happy she has come into our family. It wouldn’t be the same with her!

Thank you
Parker and Joel

Alumni News – Rori and Romi

P and P 1

Feline Rescue thinks the best way for you to get a feel for the work of the organization and it’s many dedicated volunteers is by letting our adopters (and their cats!) tell their own success stories.

Today we hear from Karen, who adopted Rori and Romi (now Jynx and Reuben) in October 2017 .

We wanted to send you a few pictures of the kittens we adopted from Feline Rescue.
P and P 1
They fit wonderfully with their adopted cat brothers Charlie and Rex.

They also get along great with our dogs. In fact we think Reuben is Tasha’s baby.


We love our new boys.

Thank you, Karen

Alumni News – Marley

Marley portraait

Feline Rescue thinks the best way for you to get a feel for the work of the organization and it’s many dedicated volunteers is by letting our adopters (and their cats!) tell their own success stories.

Today we hear from Megan, who adopted Marley. Marley’s update was first posted in April 2017 and now we have some more wonderful photos from Megan.

My son and I recently adopted Marley and I wanted to let you know how well he is doing. He is quite the gentleman to the other cat, Crabbit, who lives here. He’s been to the vet and he’s all up to date on everything now. He and my son are great friends.
