On February 6th of this year, I contacted this rescue about a pretty, senior Ragdoll cat. Her story told of 2 surrenders due to cat aggression and being 4-paw declawed, and I’ve always wanted to have a purebred Ragdoll and rescue one on top of that. I live in Florida, so I knew my chances were slim for being selected as an adopter, but felt in my gut that I needed to at least try and I’m SO glad I did. I flew on a one-day trip to Chicago to meet an animal I didn’t even know would like me upon meeting, but as soon as I called her name, she literally ran to me and I was sold. We’ve bonded since then, she sleeps on my chest, my stomach, always has some part of her laying on me, even if it’s just her paw hooked on the crook of my arm as we sleep. She comes when calls, follows me around, talks and chirps at me and she’s just such a good girl. My job as a 911 dispatcher is such a stressful job that having her close and her purrs are truly healing for me (I read somewhere that a cat’s purring frequency can heal). THANK YOU for taking a chance on an out of state adopter. My senior kitty will be spending out her remaining years with a pet parent who loves her so very much!!
I adopted 8 year old Callie the American Bobtail around a month and a half ago, and working with SPCR was beyond amazing. Everything was super organized, and the foster parents I worked with were so passionate and amazing to work with. I’m a first time cat owner and foster mom was super sweet in telling me all about Callie and her needs so I could have everything prepped for her when she moved in. Everything was super organized, had all the papers, the entire process was great–no complaints whatsoever. I’ve been referring people I know looking to adopt cats to SPCR because of the close knit community we have and how great everyone is to work with and the amount of support we all give each other. And Callie has settled in so well….she’s my little princess and knows it…she acts like royalty! I wouldn’t have it any other way!!!!
We adopted a 6 year old Maine Coon female. The foster ‘mom’ was amazing at taking the time to talk to me about whether this cat was a good fit for our home, which I appreciated. When we got our new cat home she hid in the basement to 2 weeks until she finally warmed up to us and our other can (also female and 6 years old). Our existing cat, Sophia is not normally fond of new people or animals in general. But within and month the two are good friends!! The Maine Coon was named Sissy and we have since renamed her Stella and she knows her new name! I highly recommend the originization to anyone as it was recommended to me by someone who has adopted from them who works at our Vet.
I couldn’t help but think about you guys as I’m looking at my beautiful cat who has his claws. I had declawed all of my cats my whole life ( who are no longer living). Then I started following your Facebook and how it says has their claws or declawed. I did a ton of research in making this decision with Taber and learned how cruel it is. So my little angel has his claws and is happily cleaning them right now, which is what made me think of you. Thank you for teaching me not to butcher my cat. Every single day I feel like a better cat mom because I made that decision to keep him in intact. And all because of you.
