Subject: Sunshine and Red - now Jackson and Jed

Dear Katrin,

My husband and I were so taken by your organization, your care and determination, your dedicated staff and your facility. Sitting among the many cats that you’ve helped was such an honor, each one coming to us for a scratch on the head or to nuzzle our necks. It was both miraculous to see and sad to know how many cats are tossed away as though they aren’t living, breathing beings capable of experiencing joy, love, sadness and fear. Thank you so much for all you do by honoring their lives.

As I type, Jed (originally Red) is sleeping in my lap.

Jackson (originally Sunshine) is on the arm of the loveseat watching the action at the birdfeeder.

The kittens have met our Newfoundland as well as our Brittany Spaniel mix and all has gone smoothly. Our Newf is so gentle around them and the spaniel, who we thought might be too active with them at first, has exhibited a new and much appreciated gentle side, accepting them with sweet nose taps and doting eyes. We have been introducing everybody slowly, spending a few quiet and supervised hours together each day. It won’t be long before everybody is frolicking together as a band of tight-knit brothers, dogs and cats alike. There is no doubt, we are the perfect family.

I posted a video of our wonderful adoption experience here . Feel free share it so others can see what amazing work you do. And please give Karen a big “Thank you!” from us for raising the most affectionate little boys.

Kim and Tim Clune

PS: The birthdates on the adoption contract didn’t align with the vaccination records so, as I counted backwards from the vet record dates, I found that the kitten who bonded with me most was born on my birthday!
