Dear Friends,

Here is Pistachio now KiKi.
She is adjusting very well to her new home and the more we look at her she seems even more beautiful.
She is very affectionate and she likes sleeping with us at night, her favorite spot is in between our pillows.
Many thanks for this beautiful gift.

All the best.

Jeffrey (now Byron)

Dear Humane Society of New York,

Well it has been an interesting five days! We have gone from hissing and tantrums (on Loki’s side) at the mere smell of Jeffrey (a.k.a. Byron, the Purr Master General), to grumpy reluctance, to acceptance and finally protective companionship. It seems that Loki now not only likes Byron, but considers him to be ‘his’ kitten and looks after him, from grooming to making sure he eats first.

After Loki’s initial reaction, it became necessary to integrate the kittens gradually via the 'secluded room' method, but Byron has now had the run of the house for almost 48 hours and (fingers crossed) everything is going great.

I have to say, I think we got extremely lucky with Byron. He is the most good-natured and tolerant cat I think I have ever met. Even during the long, traffic-congested car ride home, he did not meow or complain once; just calmly played with his toy. His appetite is astounding. I don’t know what condition he was found in, but he acts as though he’s afraid he will never see food again :( Hopefully this will lessen after a while, as he keeps finishing Loki’s dinner for him! 

Byron is so affectionate, always purring his little heart out. His ‘mouthiness’ has nearly disappeared since he has been running around, playing with Loki, and he spent yesterday evening on the back of the sofa purring and licking our heads lol. Both cats have been calmer and more affectionate; they were just desperate for a playmate. The past two days have been an overload of cuteness (please see attached photos), and we are so happy everything seems to be working out. 

We are so impressed by the amazing work the Humane Society of New York does every day on very limited resources, and are so grateful to have had the opportunity to adopt one of your wonderful animals. We will absolutely recommend you to everyone we know and look forward to contributing in the future.

With much love and many thanks,
