On January 23rd we celebrate Dori and Nikolas’s Gotcha Days at our house. It seems like only yesterday when the entire family of stray cats arrived in my yard. Mom, Dad and four tiny kittens. I kinda freaked out. I was already caring for numerous ex-strays. How could I afford to get them all vetted, plus find them homes? Well, the DeSoto Animal Rescue Society in Horn Lake, Mississippi stepped in, and helped me get them vetted. But then I had to find them homes. There were already way too many needy pets waiting for adoption on PetFinder.com. I had to put on my thinking cap and get real creative to get my gang noticed. I recently came across their bios and thought I would share them with you. All were adopted. We kept Nik and Dori.

Day job: Purrfessional belly rub receiver.
Dream job: Loves mewic. Can hit tenor high C and plans to win AmeriCat Idol.
Purrsonality: Natural comedicat known for random acts of silliness. Embraces his inner goofball and completely dorks out for no reason.
Caregiver Notes: This is a fun cat with lots of personality. Impressive that after a year as a stray he invites belly rubs and greets me at the door with dog-like excitement, however he has no experience with dogs. Nik is a good father to his 4 kittens with AdoraBelle.

Day job: Meowmy of 4 – AdoraPurr, Addie Pray, Kepurr and Kopea
Dream job: Pampurr’d Princess
Purrsonality: Grace Kelly regal with a touch of Beyonce cool.
Caregiver Notes: Her approachable friendliness and devotion to her first litter brought her to my attention. Belle is sweet, though reserved due to hard start in life. She puts her family first, allowing them to eat before her. She enjoys cuddles and sweet nothings whispered in her ears. Sincere appreciation for how wonderpurr she is will make a huge impact on her. She needs a home where she never has to worry or be afraid ever again. Has no experience with dogs.

Purrsonality: Wonderpurr from ears to tail. Easy going, sweet and unafraid.
Caregiver Notes: Someone forgot to tell “Dori” never-handled, stray kittens are supposed to come with a little wildness. She loves to be cuddled, sits sweetly in laps and is trying so hard to be purrfect in order to find a Forever Home. We assured her she has nothing to worry about. Read More
