"When Kitkat came home with me she received a new name- Lydia. I felt she needed a more mature and refined moniker to match her personality of a laid-back lady! It only took her about 20 minutes to claim my home as her own. She has had no litter issues (she had some in the previous home she shared with other cats), and scratches exclusively on the tree stump we brought into the house for her. I've also put her on a canned-food-only diet and play with her daily in hopes that she can shed a pound of chub over the next few months. She is the most loving kitty I've ever known and cuddles with me every time i sit or lay down. I am very glad that she was able to wait so long for me. Your organization and its no kill policy is a blessing for kitties like Kitkat!"
