MURCI (NOW BUG)
ADOPTED AUGUST 2021
We had been wanting a 2nd cat to be a buddy to our cat, Finn. However, we wanted to make sure that the 2nd cat we got would be a good fit for our home, which took a lot of searching. With Bug (previously Murci) it just clicked right away. He was ours from the moment we saw him.
The absolute best part is that Finn has adopted Bug just as much as we did. They became brothers immediately without any hesitation and it has been so amazing to watch.
Thank you CAAA for helping us round out our little family! -Becca B.
ADOPTED JULY 2021
On July 9th I lost my 15 year old girl to cancer. One of my other dogs Teddy was extremely sad. I saw Freckles picture, fell in love with her and knew she would be a perfect friend for Teddy. Freckles who is a year and a half was rescued in Texas and gave birth to 10 puppies. She is the sweetest, most loving dog. Teddy adores her and they are best buds for life. -Lisa R.
ADOPTED SEPTEMBER 2019
When I adopted Sushi, I was living and working in Rockport and wanted a cat who could be pretty independent. Sushi was two years old and had been rescued from the street in Chelsea, so he wasn't very interested in people but he was cute and we hoped he would come around! We were warned that he might never be very affectionate but he was pretty companionable, so we took him home. It was a month before he let me pet him and three months before I could pick him up for even a couple seconds.
After about nine months, he liked to be petted but he also liked a lot of time alone. Unfortunately for him, that's when I got a job in Washington and we moved across country! Sushi found himself in a whole new house, this time with people. A few months after that, my sister gave birth and he even had to contend with a baby!
At first we were really worried, since he only mostly liked me, but as the house got fuller and the baby got louder, Sushi only got more affectionate. He started asking to get picked up, coming up for pets, cuddling up to my sister and brother-in-law, and even running to get someone when the baby cried.
Now he is happy to butt his head up against the hands of anyone who comes around, loves lazing on the couch, and interrupts everyone's zoom calls and movie nights when he wants attention! We are so amazed by his transformation and how loving he has become. We would have loved him no matter what, but what a gift to have him love us back! -Deborah P.
JINGLE (NOW SCOUT)
ADOPTED FEBRUARY 2021
In my years of living I have found that life has been more of a zig-zag versus a linear progression as expected. The last few years have been a bit of a rollercoaster, as I can assume most have experienced with the pandemic-experiencing everyday challenges. To this day without a doubt the best decision I have ever made was adopting Scout, my best friend and fur-ever companion.
Scout has both a gentle and beautiful soul. She loves large open fields and chasing swallows (I swear they look for her and love chasing her too). Scout is a simple being, in the sense that all she has ever wanted is love and to be loved. What she has given is so much more-her inner beauty and genuineness has given my family a sense of closeness and happiness that has not been felt in a long time.
Thank you Cape Animal Aid for completing our family! -Sarah W.
TOGEPI (NOW LUNA)
ADOPTED JULY 2021
Luna is one amazing little tiny cat .Luna loves her older sister, but her older sister is still getting use to such a fast little kitten and she is fast. They are not best friends, but they don't fight at all, some chasing and nose touching here and there... hoping for cuddling soon. Luna sleeps with us every night, she is a love bug and loves toys, i mean loves toys. We are so grateful to have found her, after the loss of our other male cat.
Luna lives in a house full of love, toys and cuddles and she is an amazing fit to our lives. -Lisa C.
CHERRY (NOW JUNIPER)
ELIKTRIK (NOW WATERMELON)
ADOPTED JULY 2020
We just wanted to say Thank You! Watermelon has been a part of our family for a little over a year now. We all love her so much and can’t imagine our family without her in it. She is very playful and likes chasing coils and watching birds through the window. Watermelon loves napping in the sun and talking/meowing to us. She loves being around people and in the middle of whatever is going on. She is such a happy cat. Watermelon was the perfect addition to our family. Thank you so much for helping us find/adopt her. -The Kozachuk Family
