Friends of the Shelter – Vinton, IA Sun, 04 Nov 2018 17:34:55 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Lane Sun, 17 Jun 2018 02:58:40 +0000 I thought I would send you some updates on Lane. First his name is now Stanley and it definitely seems to fit him nicely. He’s a very silly kitten. He loves to follow me or his big brother, Gus around everywhere. While it’s taken a few days, Gus is accepting him nicely. He loves playing with all his new toys. He loves sitting in the kitchen sink or standing in the fridge. He went to meet his vet yesterday and got so much love. He of course loved it. My vet had to tell him to stop purring so he could hear his heart. Lol. All in all he was definitely a great choice. Here’s a few photos I’ve manage to get. He’s hard to take photos of him bc he always on the go. Thanks again for bringing us together.

Oh and I hope the rest are enjoying the banana and rainbow. 🙂


Albie Sun, 17 Jun 2018 02:54:49 +0000 Just wanted to let you know that I think Albie is feeling safe & comfy. He’s made himself at home. The family has decided that Albie is short for Albert Einstein, his new name, but I just call him Albie.


Darlene Sun, 17 Jun 2018 02:53:00 +0000 Hello,
She (Penny, aka Darlene) continues to do great. She’s a quick learner. She definitely thinks she should be in charge of everything but Scout as well as Mary and I are working to make sure she knows we are the bosses.  She is so funny because she runs around and plays like she is a big shot but if Scout barks at something she puts her tail between her legs and heads for the door to the house. She will start puppy kindergarten in a couple of weeks.
We will keep in touch. I hope things are going well for you.
Winston and Churchill Sun, 17 Jun 2018 02:51:19 +0000 Hi there!

Just thought I’d send some pictures and a little update about the boys now that they’re fully settled into Oregon life 🙂 They’re both getting so big and showing their personalities.

Oliver (formerly known as Winston) is the sweetest boy ever. He enjoys waking us up by cuddling our faces at exactly 7 AM. His favorite activities are sleeping right next to me on the desk while I work, carrying his toys around the house, attacking the broom, and starting wrestling matches with his brother.
Kubo (formerly known as Churchill) is hilarious and a little troublemaker. He loves playing in the sink, being held like a baby, and ripping into anything resembling food. He “talks” more than any cat I’ve ever seen, to us and to Oliver. He just walks around the house trilling and meowing in his own language all day.
They both love to play in the water, so if we forget to close the door while showering they hop in and start wrestling in there, which is terrifying. They always want to be in the same room as us and we think they are pretty satisfied with life here. We are so happy to have them in the family and we can’t imagine two more perfect cats. It was definitely meant to be!
Hope you’ve been well and are sending lots of great kitties home with nice families!
