King Tut went from the streets of Providence RI to knocking on heaven's door to a yacht. He is a diabetic and doing great!. Now he is enjoying his new home in North Carolina with the same family who adopted him.

-Laurie B.


We adopted Milkshake (formerly Whittier 2) two years ago as of this month. He is a bubbly, chatty, cuddly, playful little ball of floof and he brings so much happiness to our lives. His favorite time of day is breakfast and dinner and he loves belly rubs and playing fetch (a skill he came equipped with on his own). Milkshake and I are currently snuggling on the couch and want to say THANK YOU for bringing us together.

-Courtney R.


Ace (formerly Honeydew) was adopted 11/7/15. He’s such a joy, the most gentle, sweet cat there is and totally runs the show.

-Sarah ​B.


This is Zoey (formerly Dot). She is the absolute sweetest cat! She is beyond patient with our 1 year old and they are the BEST of friends. She sits on the edge of the tub while he’s in the bath, she climbs in bed with him, she sits in whatever room he plays in! She is so snuggly and will not go to bed until everyone in the family is upstairs safely tucked in. We absolutely love her.

-Tara A.

Neil Catrick Harris

This is Neil Catrick Harris. We adopted him just short of two years ago. Don't let his sleepy eyes fool you, he is by far the most energetic cat I have had! He loves his cat wheel, treats, spring toys, and (we hope) his new brother we just adopted.

Toby & Tigger

Toby and Tigger(former Rolo and Snicker) are great little boys. We have many laughs at them grooming each other and chasing each other in the house. Waking up each morning with them at the foot of our bed puts smiles on our faces. They are always curled into each other when they sleep.

-Nattie M.

Maddy & Max

Maddy & Max settled in now going on 2 years now. They took some time getting adjusted as Maddy was found in an abandoned apartment complex & was a bit feral. She had a litter of 5 or 6, but Max was the only one to survive. She is such a loving momma.. she still bathes him, sleeps w: him & when dinner time rolls around, she waits for him to eat before she does. I love  hem so much!

This is Max who I adopted as Honey Boo #2 in August of 2017 as just a baby. I had the intention of adopting an older cat, but he was just the sweetest, most laid back little guy and I fell in love. He loves to be pet, and brushed, and he even lets me clip his nails. He also plays fetch and drinks from the faucet. He’s a character and gives his dog sister a run for her money.

Leo (formerly Marcel) was adopted by me in Jan 2018. He loves his new home and is quite the dapper gentleman on holidays!

This is Callie (formally known as Cinnamon) who I adopted December 2013. She’s doing wonderfully! She loves being outside with her harness, playing and snuggling her kitty sister Addie, and finding new and unique places to hide around the house. She’s moved with me twice and has always been my go to girl.
