Cornelia now Diane

Hi there! I recently adopted the pastel calico "Cornelia" from you folks.

She's doing great! Her name is Diane now, and we're totally settled in together and enjoying each others' company. 

Attached some photos of her hanging out, and also a "selfie" I helped her take. ;-)

Hope all is well! Loving living with Diane. :-)

"Kahn feels like he been here all along can't believe it has only been a few days. I have no doubt this is a good fit and feel extremely lucky to have found him by complete chance scrolling through the adoption sites. We are so thankful for all the help and guidance you all have given us and Kahn.
Have a great day."

This is my Jack. She has been my constant companion for the last 16 years. She is my best friend, my confidant, my nurse and my rock. I just wanted to thank you all for taking a chance with adopting a cat to twenty something year old girl with no experience of her own.

My only real experience with pet care was what I was taught at home. Luckily, my mother laid a clear path of what responsible pet care truly meant. So when I walked in your doors to find my new friend all I could say was "I live on my own now and my life is just empty without a cat to love.".
I didn't want a kitten, I wanted an older cat. When I was shown to the room with the older cats I started having doubts about which cat to choose. Silly human, I know that now.
Jack (or Jax as she was named then) saw me coming. When I got to her cage, she got up and stretched as if to say, "well it took you long enough, let's go home.". I opened the cage and she crawled onto my shoulder as if she belonged there. I felt the click instantaneously!!

I immediately filled out the paperwork and got the necessary signatures. I was back to take her home within a few days. We have been together ever since that day!

Over the years, our little duo has grown into a much larger family. Jack and I now have my husband and our 2 children, 2 dogs and most recently a new cat. We have moved from a tiny little apartment on Long Island to an acre of property on the coast of North Carolina.

We will be together 16 years this coming March and I believe there will be many more happy years to come. Thank you for allowing me to adopt her all those years ago. The joy and happiness I have experienced with my beloved Jack is immeasurable.
