Zest Goes Home!

Well, that was fast! I had just introduced you to Zest last week, but I knew that she wouldn’t be with us in foster for long, as she’s just too darn cute! That, and someone texted with interest in her the very first day we brought her home. So, we enjoyed Zest’s short stay while it lasted…and completely fell in love with her.

There’s an Intruder in the House! #sundayswithsophie

Sophie here! I thought this was going to be a restful and relaxing weekend. But that never seems to be the case in our household. Turns out Mom and Pops welcomed another intruder to our house yesterday!

I knew something was up when they left early in the morning to go somewhere…they muttered something about “beating traffic” or some human nonsense. They came back a little bit later with this tiny black ball of fur.

Kittens! And the adventure begins…

On Saturday this past weekend, our day began at CatConLA (another post on that later), and then we drove up to Best Friends Los Angeles to finalize the adoption of Woodrow.

Adopt a Shelter Cat Month with Foster Cat Lion #fosterfriday

I’d like to officially introduce you to our newest foster cat Lion. This four-year-old handsome fella may look a tiny bit familiar to regular blog readers. Some cat named Dexter isn’t too sure about the new guy and his tabby face. It’s okay, Dexter, there’s plenty of love to go around!

Getting to Know Samantha Bell DiGenova

Sometimes when you meet someone they just ooze kindness and you immediately feel their warmth and generosity. That is the case with Samantha Bell DiGenova, the Cat Behavior and Enrichment Lead for Best Friends in Los Angeles.

Samantha and I are both volunteers with the Jackson Galaxy Foundation (JGF), which is how we were put in touch. She is a volunteer trainer-mentor to the participating Cat Pawsitive shelters (and I’m a volunteer writer). I was fortunate enough to meet Samantha in person when she kindly played tour guide when I visited Best Friends in Los Angeles last month.

And today, we get to learn more about Samantha and her three adopted cats.
