Emails and Letters from Adopters

Just a quick update on Daphne ( now named Lexi ). She is integrating wonderfully into our home . After 3 days of a slow introduction to our other cat , Winston , they both are getting used to each other very well . They have actually taken turns chasing each other throughout the house . In the evening Lexi loves alone time on the couch with my wife and me . She loves talking and getting head and butt scratches . What a sweet girl ! It ’ s wonderful to see her personality flourish . She ’ s absolutely perfect for our family ! Thanks again for all of your great foster work .

Ella is doing so well ! She ’ s still a bit scared of sudden movements but will happily sleep on the bed or couch with us . She has the cutest little meow when she wants something !
We ’ re very happy with Abagail and Shadow . They seem very happy with us , and my son feels safe with them around . We ’ ve always had furry members as part of our family but having two dogs at once is new . It wasn ’ t what we wanted , but now we ’ ll never go back . Even our cat is warming up to them . Every day with them is better than the day before . Yesterday , my oldest son thanked me for bringing them home . I guess he thought all the barky , needy , medical issuey , eye droppy , anxiety stuff would be a deal breaker . These aren ’ t glitches but features . So no take backs , we ’ re keeping them !
Thanks for finding Rogue the perfect match for us on our first adoption journey !
