Hi, I adopted Nelson last Friday and I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that he is doing great. He has adapted to his new surroundings remarkably well and is enjoying his new home. On the first night I brought him home, he slept with me most of the night but at one point, left the bed. Apparently he wanted to bring me a 'gift' for giving him a new home. When I awoke the next morning, I found a small, red potato in the middle of my bedroom floor. I keep them in a bowl on my countertop in the kitchen. While getting on the counters is not a good thing, it was rather cute that he brought me a potato in the night. He's a great cat.

Thanks for all you do there - I know it isn't easy. Just take comfort in knowing that what you do is appreciated by those like me who happen to come along at the right time and adopt just the right pet.
