From Liz & Bruce Gore - 30 July 2007

Hi Katrin,

On Saturday we adopted two kittens at the Cat/Kitten Adoption Clinic you had in Great Barrington. One of the kittens was named "Lion King" and the other kitten was a female calico kitten. I think her name was "Pat Wue" (that was the name written in silver on the piece of paper), but I'm not sure. Here is a photo of her. In the rush and chaos of it all, we received all of the paperwork on Lion King and only partial paperwork on the calico kitten. Do you have any further information on her? From looking at your website, I think she may be Olivia's sister, but I'm not sure. She looks a lot like Olivia.

I was wondering if you knew how old the calico kitten is and her approximate birth date. (You see, we ALWAYS celebrate our animals birthdays in our household.) The paperwork that came with the calico kitten said "too small to give rabies", so I have a feeling she is younger than Lion King (whom we renamed to "Hobbes". He reminds me so much of the cartoon character in "Calvin & Hobbes". and he is very mischievous, just like Hobbes).

I also wanted to take a moment to say how impressed my husband and I were with the volunteers at the Cat Adoption Clinic. All of the volunteers were friendly and polite. You could tell that they were all animal lovers and that the cats/kittens were only going to go to good homes. Volunteers were checking references and veterinarian's were being called. The volunteers did a GREAT job during all of the chaos! I was so impressed with a little girl that I saw assisting a client, getting her a pen and something hard to write on. She was so bubbly and cheerful and very helpful. She was one of the volunteers daughters. She did a great job.

Both kittens are doing well. They are adjusting to life in a house. They have sniffed and explored every place possible. They are eating, drinking and sleeping. They are currently fast asleep on the screened in porch enjoying the cool breeze and the sounds of birds, squirrels and chipmunks. They seem content with my husband and I and they are adjusting to all of the hugs, kisses and snuggles they are getting from us. :) Hobbes is a real "lovey dovey" and likes the affection and attention. The calico kitten hisses at first and arches her back up, but once you snuggle her neck and kiss her ears, she quiets down and starts to purr. I am so glad that we got two kittens, as they seem to need one another. They chase each other around the house and they sleep together. If one goes into a different room in the house, the other is sure to follow. If one climbs on the couch, the other one climbs higher on the couch. They seem very happy.

If you have any further information that you can share with me on my two new little additions, I would be happy to hear about them. Please be assured that both kittens will have a wonderful, happy new life in our household.

Thank you, from the bottom of our heart, to all of the volunteers at Animal Kind, Inc. who helped make it possible for us to find two new "little rays of sunshine". I will keep you updated with photo's and emails of our kittens.
