From undersocialized, terrified formerly hoarded cat to little cuddly baby

When Ajax first came home, he was so scared that we had to feed him under the furniture he hid under in his designated “getting used to the house” room. Now, he’s a super cuddly, sweet, friendly little cat. He’s still afraid of strangers and likely always will be, but he’s come so far. It took about six weeks to fully socialize him, though he made massive strides within two weeks. The key is honestly patience and not rushing things. We got him last June and can’t imagine life without him!

Greetings from Sunny and Bonnie. We rescued them in spring 2023. They survived through a severe winter living in a cold barn and being near each other. Now they have been adopted both by one family ❤️ And they are living their best life.

From Moon Friend to Cat Lover: The Unlikely Tale of Luna and Me

Meet Luna, my moonlit companion 🌙❤️. Our story began in a twist of fate, as her previous owner had to make the tough decision to rehome her due to a new, cat-allergic partner. Ironically, my name means 'moon friend,' which seemed like destiny calling us together. Luna's journey hasn't been without its shadows, carrying trauma from her past that makes her wary of strangers. Yet, in my presence, she transforms into the most affectionate soul, proving that even the most reserved hearts can learn to trust again.

I'll confess, I always thought of myself as a dog person — until Luna entered my life. Now, a year later, the thought of a day without her is unimaginable. She's taught me the unspoken language of patience, love, and the pure joy that comes from unexpected companionship. Luna, with her mysterious allure and selective affection, has reshaped my understanding of friendship and loyalty. She's not just a cat; she's a reminder that love comes in many forms, often when we least expect it. Swipe to see why I'm utterly enchanted by her every day. Soooo cuuuuuteee! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

This cutie was abandoned in a busy parking lot today. I work at the vet where a good Samaritan brought him in. He was hungry! He ate a whole jar of baby food right away, and my coworker is fostering him through his stray hold, then is gonna adopt him. Everyone meet Gerber!!
