Hatter

Hatter home 2022Hi  Hatter w friend
He’s doing really well. I named him Jasper! And yes he’s met Gypsy!  It took a few days of slowly introducing them and Gypsy was scared of him at first, but now seems to enjoy his company (except when he is constantly going after her tail lol). But he’s a goofy ball of energy and I’d say she definitely likes having a friend to play with. At first she would hiss and run away from him. He was in a separate room when I first brought him home and I let Gypsy see him but then she wouldn’t even come near that side of the house. I ended up putting Jasper in a crate for a little one day so they could see each other and Gypsy slowly approached him on and off/kept running away and coming back. I eventually started letting him out for short periods of time so they could interact and then would put him back in.  Once Gypsy seemed less scared I let him out for good and they seem to have worked things out. By last Thursday they were both out and around each other full time.  I caught them sleeping next to each other the other day, and have caught them cleaning each other. He is a little fireball and seems to be able to hold his own pretty well.

Soprano and Benedict home

Benedict and Soprano

I thought you might enjoy seeing a picture of how well Benedict and Soprano are doing!  They are wonderful and we have been enjoying them so much. I've actually renamed them: Benedict is now Sokka and Soprano is now Katara.  They are both so sweet and are adjusting well too the dog! Katara has adopted the dog as her new mom!

Lainey home 2022Lainey

Hello! Lainey has been adjusting very well since we brought her home on Saturday. She was eating and using the litter box from day 1. She was a little jittery as expected, but she is definitely a lot more comfortable now and has even started playing with some toys. She is extremely curious about everything, and has set up "her spot" in the staircase. At night, she can be very vocal, but we understand that it might be because she is in heat. Overall, she is such a joy and loves to be pet. We can't wait to see more of her personality as she becomes more comfortable here.

Louisa and Willie

Louisa and Willie home 2022

Hi  Mansfield Team-
 
Louisa and Willie did great with their transition. The love their wet kitten food and dry kitten food. They are using the litter box like champs- there are two but as soon as one goes in the other follows. It took Willie a couple of days to feel comfortable and now he doesn't hide. They have had many visitors - they are well behaved never nippy with our fingers. They are obsessed with our toes. And with Dunkin' Donuts drinks and straws. They love to wrestle with eac hother. Thank you - they are well socialized and a great addition to our household.

Bacon  home 2022
Bacon

Bacon is the sweetest little kitten ever. He loves to cuddle, and he is always purring. He sleeps on my shoulder every night too! Bacon and big sister Amelia are getting along so wonderfully; they love to play tag, nap together, and play together will all their toys. I’m so happy he’s part of our little family!

Foxy home 2022
Foxy

Four years ago I lost my precious Frodo a long- haired orange tabby. Finally decided I needed a new companion. Through petfinder I saw Foxy. I knew he was the one. Very friendly when I visited him. When he came home he hid, but by the afternoon he had made himself at home.

RileyRiley

Hello! Our family adopted our cat, Riley, (known by the shelter as Cassidy) in October 2005. Just wanted to give you an update. She is still the queen of the castle and definitely keeps the younger ones in line, including the dog. Recently she has developed a thyroid issue, hence the thinness, but we are working with the vet and otherwise she is great! Thanks for all your hard work! We wouldn't have changed a moment of the past 16 1/2 years!

Macho

Macho (now Wesley) is doing very well and has fit right in, he's taken well to training and loves his walks. Everyone who has met him so far has fallen in love and he's done the same with everyone he's met. Just wanted to let everyone know how he's doing, and appreciate the help and information from the shelter.

Gregory 1_2022GregoryGregory 2_2022

"KING" Gregory has adjusted very nicely to his new home! He is living the dream. Purring all the time. Enjoying belly rubs. Basking in the sun by the door. Drinking from his water fountain. He is so awesome, wonderful and lovable! We love him and he seems to love us. Thanks very much,
-Jeanene and John
 

Ghost 2 2022Ghost

I renamed Ghost to Chocolate Moose. He seems quite happy and relaxed in his new home. We have settled on a daily routine that works. Well, except for Chocolate being my 5am alarm clock!  Chocolate loves chasing a Jackson Galaxy wand toy I bought him. He also spends a lot of time watching activity outside. Interestingly, nearly every night at approximately 8 pm, he comes to sit next to me as I'm watching TV and "makes biscuits" nonstop, purring madly while I pet him. After about 10 minutes of this, he falls sound asleep. My local vet pronounced him fit and also implanted a chip in him last week.  Please share my thanks with your team for taking such good care of Chocolate during the adoption process! He's a great cat.

Adjustment has been absolutely amazing . I am totally in love with these two girls and they are spoiled rotten! They are playing, eating, and sleeping so well . Thank you so much for everything, I couldn't be happier!

Apple 2022
Apple

Apple is doing super well. She made herself at home almost immediately and I'm happy to report she hasn't rolled in her litter box once. She is super affectionate, loves her scratches, and has had a re-kittening of sorts. By which I mean Apple now can't get enough play time. Her favorite toys are a string from a teaser she chewed the toy off of and a rabbit kicker. During the day Apple can usually be found lounging in her apple tree or ignoring her many beds to hog the comfiest seat on the sofa. Last night she even preformed her first ever zoomies. We adore her and I think she can tell because she has zero awareness when it comes to personal space. Her butt is always in someone's face. Please see attached photo. We call this sleeping position the Apple Turnover.
Thanks for everything,
Roz and Adam
 

Sophie home 2022
Sophie

Hi there,

Sophie has been settling in very well! She’s still shy and on high alert, but when she comes out to socialize, she is loving and friendly. She really is a sweet girl. She’s had no trouble using the litter box, her scratching post or eating and is opening up more every day. She’s even slept in bed with us a couple times!

Thanks for all your help and an easy adoption process.

Gina and Steve

 

Vixen 2 homeVixen home
Vixen

She’s doing great and we love her SO much! The perfect mix of crazily playful and super cuddly. She’s the perfect little companion for me being at home during the day. She’s just so much fun and such a sweet kitty. She plays hard all day in between her little cat naps and she’s been sleeping with us in bed at night. Thanks so much again for bringing her into our lives!
Sincerely,
Kathleen and Brandon

Penny b&w 2022PennyPenny home 2022

Wanted to send you some pictures of Penny (now Pixel). She settled in on day 1 like she has lived here the whole time. She is the sweetest little kitty and loves everyone who comes to our apartment. She is very vocal and purrs non stop�� and loves to wake David up in the morning by licking his face. Her favorite activities are watching our fish, drinking out of the bathroom faucet, batting bottle caps around the floor, and climbing on her cat tree. She is an excellent eater, always curious to see what we are eating as well in case it's for her! She is the queen around here.
Warm regards,
Sarah & David
 

Rya home 2022

Rya

We call her Athena (like the warrior that she is) and she responds. It took her 4 months to explore the house but it’s really comfortable in every room and with us also present in her space. Sometimes she initiates play with Alanis the dog but prefers to play by herself with items that she finds in top of the dinning table. She is crazy about my stepdaughter and likes my husband. She is comfortable with both of them picking her up but with me she is more likely to let me pet her and play with her.
She is perfect, her attitude and personality are showing and she’s very vocal when she wants your attention.

Razor Remi 2022 

Razor and Remi

Miguel and I adopted Fozzy (Razor) and Elliot (Remy) back in July and just wanted to give you an update as to how they are doing. They have brought so much love and companionship to our lives.  They are amazing.  Can’t believe they’re coming up on a year old (10 months already!) they are so funny and loving.  Couldn’t have asked for a better fit to our family.

Peridot TopazPeridot and Topaz

Hi folks.
We've attached pictures of Melian and Gandalf (formerly Peridot and Topaz) whom we adopted from you early last summer.We hope that you can share this with their former foster family. They are both hilarious and much loved!
Thank you,

Buzz & Noel
 

Nora 2022

Nora

Nora is adjusting well. She can be talkative and enjoys moving in short bursts of running rather than walking. She purrs pretty much constantly when someone is around but isn't a cuddler (yet, at least!) She's still a little more shy around my roommate but overall they get along well! And she's curious about the guinea pigs but they can also startle her pretty easily.
All the best,
Liz
 

Tyson home 2022

TysonTyson and friend 2022

I changed his name to Maverick. I did a gradual introduction with my other kitten and they are already fast friends. He is very loved. He is up, eating and running around with Bertie this morning. I am so happy I got him, they get along so well. Thanks again and Happy New Year!!

Aurora Mystique home 2022

Aurora and Mystique

It’s been almost two weeks since Ginny (formally Mystique) and Luna (formally Aurora) joined our family and we couldn't be more in love with them. They are playful, cuddly, sweet, and funny. They are the perfect additions to our family and they are the best fur babies for my kids. Ginny and Luna have so much patience and so much love to give my kids. My children are leaning way into their responsibilities of taking care of two new pets, and of course are so loved with cuddles from everyone.
I just wanted to send my sincerest thank you to everyone at Mansfield Animal Shelter and especially to the people who fostered Ginny and Luna. They were so loved by them and it shows in the way these two kittens are so comfortable with our family.
Thank you-
The Teiner Family
