Happy Endings!!! “Here’s an update on Bobby Ray, now Monty, exactly 1 year later! He’s still the sweetest cuddle-monster you ever met. He likes catching toys and running off with them, and loves to snuggle down in bed at night. He STILL sticks his tongue out on a regular basis. It’s a feature! We are so happy he’s got his forever home with us. ❤️”
Happy Endings!!! Skye, formerly Uma Purrman, was recently adopted. Her new family shares, “I just wanted to reach out and tell you how happy our family has been with Skye 🙂 she is such a sweet little girl who purrs all day long and loves pets and attention. She sleeps above my head at night and makes biscuits on our chests 😍❤️ we can’t imagine our home without her!”
Happy Endings!!! Sometimes a cat finds her forever home in a way that can only be described as destiny. Hazel is a shy girl who was staying at our adoption center in Jenkintown, but didn’t seem happy there so we were just getting ready to take her back into foster care when the perfect human found her. Here’s an update!
“I want to thank you again for helping me take Hazel (Masha) home with me. She has truly been a pure blessing in my life.
A month before I actually adopted Hazel, now Masha, I found her on Petfinder. The second I saw her, I knew that she was the cat for me. I kept on looking to see if there were any cats closer to me in any shelters but I always ended up finding my way back to Masha. She was the only one in my favorites on the website. One weekend, I came home and it was just by chance that I went into PetSmart. While there, I decided to check out the cats for adoption and there was Masha! I couldn’t believe it. I had no idea that she was there, I didn’t know she was out of her foster home. It was just by chance that I was home that weekend, it was just by chance that I went into PetSmart, and I would later find out that Masha had only been at the center for a few days after leaving her foster home.
I’ve had her for a little more than a month now. And the timid, scared kitten that I had brought home that was too terrified to take a single step while I was awake has blossomed into a curious, playful and loving addition to the family. She is by my side anytime I’m studying, circles around constantly to be pet and sleeps next to me every night.
I’m so happy to have been able to adopt and give this angel a home.”
Dalton came to us from Forgotten Cats 10 weeks ago.
Our lovable PHILLY cat!
Dalton came to us from Philly. He was very shy when we first met him, and we were told he was a jumper which on the first day he came home with us he decided he wanted to be included with our grandkids pictures as well which below is a picture of him less than 2 hours of coming home with us.
I could not get over how big of a cat he was. As I was looking at other cats that they shown me at the pet store this cat kept standing out.
No, he was not a kitten which I first wanted, and yes he loves to jump which I was hesitant on wanting this but I thought why not take chance on this older cat.
We are so glad we did! He adjusted very well to the family and truly is living the good life now. I’m so glad we took a chance on this big guy. He is so loveable and the cutest cat he possible can be. Thanks, Forgotten Cats for rescuing him.
Happy Endings!!! Squeaks came from a feral colony in Sussex County, DE, a site where unwanted cats are often dumped. He was already neutered when we found him, and was found to have both FIV and cerebellar hyperplasia. CH affects a kitty’s sense of balance and while the condition is manageable and not life-threatening, it can be much harder for cats with the condition to find a home. It can be even harder for a cat who also has FIV, which is a manageable but highly stigmatized condition. Luckily for Squeaks, the perfect family came along a few months ago. They already had 2 cats, one of whom also has CH and is deaf, and they were ready and willing to provide a safe home for another cat with special needs.
Now Squeaks is living the good life in his forever home. He was renamed Frito. His new dad shares, “he will never know what it is like to be cold or hungry or unloved ever again!” We can tell how happy he is and we’re so happy for him. Congratulations to Frito and his forever family!
Happy Endings!!! Many of you have been asking for an update on Batman. For those who don’t know his story, Batman is a senior cat with special needs who was stolen from Brookhaven PetSmart in November. After weeks of desperate searching by cat lovers and the police, and a whole lot of media attention, someone tipped the police when they saw the alleged perpetrators. Thanks to the incredible work of the tipsters, the Brookhaven police and the community, Batman was recovered safe and the perpetrators were arrested. We do not know why they stole Batman, but we are over the moon that he was found safe. And to make the story even happier, a week after being found, Batman was adopted by the very same people who gave the tip to the police!
Batman’s new family shares, “Batman is doing amazing! He’s the king of our house already- pampered and spoiled 😜 He literally follows us around 24-7 and we LOVE it!! He’s really happy with us and it makes our hearts full ❤️ He has already met our family and friends and you can tell that he thrives with the attention from everyone lol. He’s sooo social!! When people come over, he greets them with with a little “hello” meow.”
What a happy ending. We love you, Batman!
HAPPY ENDING UPDATE APRIL 2020
As you may remember, Batman was stolen from our adoption center in the Brookhaven, PA PetSmart. Following an agonizing 8 day search, our sweet cat was found safe by the Brookhaven Police Dept. (based off a tip from his future adoptive mama!). Shortly after his recovery, Batman was adopted into a wonderful home. Nearly 6 months later, here’s what his new mom has to say:
“Batman is amazing! He follows us around 24-7 and we love it! ❤️❤️❤️ We couldn’t ask for a more affectionate and loving cat. He adapted right away. It’s only been a few months of him living with us, but it feels likes he has always been here. He has a toy box of everything you can imagine, but he prefers to play with strings on clothing, door jams and area rugs 🤣 If he’s not sleeping with us, he is sleeping on the recliner. Little guy loves his comfort.
Batman is great with visitors. He loves the attention that he gets, and is wonderful with children. The other day family came to drop something off, but due to the quarantine we just talked through the glass door. Poor Batty (his nickname) wanted to see them so bad that he was crying for us to open the door, and then he kept reaching up trying to open it.
His health is good! He just had a vet appointment and his kidney issues are still really low. He’s frisky, chatty, full of energy and loves to give kisses! Right now, he is in his glory because my husband is working from home. Each day he makes an appearance on his video conference calls. He’s famous with his co-workers now because of that. People are always asking him about Batman.”
A BIG thank you to the Brookhaven Police Dept. and EVERYONE who helped in the search for Batman🙏
Happy Endings!!! Cherokee had an unusual experience this past spring. He was adopted in March, but things were not working out with that first adopter. Unfortunately in the process of coordinating his return to us, the adopter made a very poor decision and dumped poor Cherokee on the grounds of Hagley Museum 🙁 After several heart-wrenching days and a long vigil by many volunteers of Forgotten Cats and Delaware Humane Association, Cherokee was finally rescued and brought back into our care. He was then placed at our adoption center in Christiana.
Ilsa (dilute tortie) was at Brandywine for about 2 months, without one application. She was transferred to Christiana to see if she would get noticed there instead. AND…what better ending…Cherokee & Ilsa became best buds, and were adopted TOGETHER in June by a lovely mom & daughter who now dote on both cats, and simply adore them!
We’re so glad we were able to bring these kitties together and that they were adopted into a truly forever home. Thank you to the wonderful volunteers who saved Cherokee, and to the forever family for adopting him and Ilsa! Wishing many happy years for you all!
Happy Endings!!! “I started fostering Sueanne last March for a much needed cage break. She was very shy, and mostly hid for the first week or so of being with us. She wanted to be around people, but wasn’t too sure how to behave in such an open setting.
Over the weeks, Sueanne really started to adjust to being in our home. About a month into fostering Sueanne, a nice family put in an application for a cat whose personality matched Sueanne perfectly! I took her in for a meet and greet, however, she was terrified. Being back at the adoption center was very unsettling for her. She had spent the past ten months in different adoption centers, and must have thought we were putting her back.
The family that came to meet her were understanding, but decided on a different cat instead. I felt awful, and only wanted the best home for Sueanne. When I brought her home that evening, she still trusted me, despite how scared she had felt in her carrier and for going to meet with new people. She let me pet her more than usual that night, and I felt that she had acted out because she already was starting to feel right at home here with me.
That night, I decided to introduce Sueanne to my own cats. My cats are VERY sassy. So I honestly didn’t think it was going to work out. But, after a few more weeks of slow introductions, and letting them all get used to each other, I knew that Sueanne respected my other cats, and was just happy to be in a home where she felt loved.
On May 12th, 2018, one year after Sueanne had begun waiting for her forever home, I signed her adoption papers and made everything official! Sueanne has now been with us for a full year and her personality continues to bloom every day. She’s playful, silly, and is the most affectionate cat. All she wants is a warm bed, and someone to pet her. I’m so happy to have this silly little girl in my
