Happy Tails For Ruso

Pet’s AARF Name: Ruso
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Stirling
How is your adopted pet doing? Stirling has been doing fantastic with us! We have been having a great time getting to know what his favorite toys are, and watching him find his favorite spots to nap around the house. He has lost a little bit of his chunkiness, so he’s faster and more playful now. He loves to chase feather toys and watch birds out the window. The best part is that he loves to snuggle and he keeps us company while we work. He has truly been the perfect first cat and the perfect cat for us. Thank you, AARF!

Happy Tails For Meyers

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: November
Pet’s AARF Name: Meyers
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Tobi Binder (Toe-beans)
How is your adopted pet doing? Tobi is doing wonderful! The first week we had him was a little rough because his sister Cinder was a little upset that she was no longer the sole heir to the kingdom, but now they are good buds. Tobi loves to wrestle with Cinder, and they take turns stalking each other (in a playful manner). They also like tearing down the curtains by surprising each other with a well timed pounce from behind the curtains. We’ve even caught them cuddling a few times, but they have camera spidey senses. We got Tobi a bed for his favorite spot under the coffee table, so he spends a lot of time laying about there. He also really enjoys sitting on our little kitty tower and watching the birds through the window. He isn’t a fan of being picked up, but he allows mommy a cuddle if she promises to scratch behind his ears and keep the kisses to a minimum. (Mommy is secretly quite proud of the fact that Tobi won’t let anyone else hold him.) He likes to come say hello when he hears us waking up in the mornings. (He sometimes tries to sleep with us, but apparently mommy wiggles to much.) If we try to check our phones during this morning visit he will sit on our hand so that all attention must be focused on ear rubs. He is also much more fascinated with running water than his sister. He likes to splash me when I’m in the tub, and likes to watch the shower spout from the safe, dry viewpoint behind the clear curtain. Tobi has been a wonderful addition to our family, and I am so thankful for the opportunity to love him.

Happy Tails For Luttrell

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: December 2017
Pet’s AARF Name: Luttrell
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Batly
How is your adopted pet doing? Oh wow, he didn’t respond to “luttrell” so we decided to change his name. Batly, was a vampire on a 1990’s cartoon and he responded to that name so it stuck. He is the boss of the house. He is a typical cat. I have never purposely got a cat before as I have always been afraid of them. But decided to get a cat because they can stay in the house all the time(we live too close to a road to get a dog). I love this cat. I am not afraid of him although he makes me bleed on a very frequent basis when we play. I don’t yell at him or hit him(that is so mean) just tell him no and stop playing with him when he scratches too hard. I assume it is because he is young and he will outgrow it.
He sleeps on MY soft throw blanket at the foot of the bed at night and likes to lay on it in the living room at other times. He doesn’t like his “cat” bed. A few times he has came up to the head of the bed but wont let me touch him, he simply puts one paw on my arm and lies there. It’s sweet really.
He won’t eat canned cat food that I thought would be a treat for him. He just wants Meow Mix or the Petco kind.
I was afraid he would use my houseplants as his litter box but thankfully he has not. I lined them with aluminum foil as an initial deterrent instead of waiting for him to do it and then trying to resolve the issue. He uses the litter box but doesn’t like when I clean it daily. He actually tries to get in it while I’m cleaning it and always leaves a prize in there immediately after I clean it. I guess he is marking it “his”. He has seemingly gotten attached to me and wants to be in the same room as I am all the time. IF I shut a door he sits outside of it and meows loudly, we call it crying. He always greets me at the door when I get home from work and wants my undivided attention for a minute or two then he wants down. He only lets you pet him when he wants to be petted. He is growing like a weed and is pretty much a good kitty(except he plays way too rough). We are glad to have him.
