Sweet Success: Tito

Written by loving adopter, Sabrina B.

Being a volunteer, I remember when Tito was still in a kennel, and then became free-roaming in cattery 2. I had been wanting a kitty for some time, and the day we decided it was time to bring a kid with whiskers home, my partner and I visited BHS. We found Tito where he was lounging atop of a cat tree in cattery 2, and he let out a long, paw-flexing stretch and let me touch his belly. Yet each individual kitty was so sweet, so I got on the floor and played with all of them for awhile. I loved Tito’s playfulness particularly; and it seemed like he’d be a perfect napping buddy that still also had plenty of energy, which is exactly what we were hoping for. My partner also fell in love with Tito’s unique, almost dog-like personality, so I came back the next day to make things official! The adoption process was a breeze thanks to Shelby, she was very helpful.

Tito is the perfect fur child, he makes us proud and his personality is the best addition to our family we could’ve hoped for. He and I have become inseparable. He has stayed true to his dog-like qualities: he does rather well in his harness when we go outside to chase bugs and people-watch, he is a faithful and delightfully talkative shadow, and he also gives any new guest in our home a warm welcome and an invitation to play! But he’s not too shabby at being an amazing kitty either: he is a solid napping companion, he is a diligent morning cuddler before breakfast, he pokes his nose up at you for kisses, and most importantly he is the king of our little castle as well as our hearts. I just can’t imagine life without Tito in it and I’m so thankful we found each other!! We are excited to celebrate his first birthday next month. Here’s to Tito! We love you!

Sweet Success: Ginger

What a treat this puppy has been as an addition to our family. Ginger (previously named Faith) has been warmly welcomed into our home and our lifestyle. We are avid campers during the Spring – Fall. Now that Ginger has had all of her shots, and is registered with the City of Sacramento she has gained free reign of the wilderness with us. In fact, she was just practicing her kayaking and swimming skills up in Plumas National Forest at Little Grass Valley Reservoir. She has also already visited the Russian River and has a trip scheduled for Scott’s Flat Reservoir.

While home during the day Ginger has been lucky enough to be home with her new Daddy. Rich has been home for a couple months and that has made being available for her during the day really easy. She is beginning to spend a few hours home alone at a time throughout the week as she gets ready to have at least half a day at home alone pretty soon. She also enjoys car rides, trip to the local Brewery (Bike Dog), and walking the neighborhood with us. Ginger is such a good listener she makes it easy for us to introduce new social experiences to her.

We are so happy with how warm and lovey Ginger is too. She gets plenty of snuggles and all the attention she could ask for. Ginger is such a kind puppy. We really are lucky to have found her. Thank you Butte Humane Society, for pairing us with our sweet puppy. We love her so much.

Sweet Success: Dave

Written by Shelby W., BHS Adoptions Supervisordave

We received an update from Dave’s Adopter, Joyce,  recently. Dave was a special shy kitty that we had in our care for quite some time. He was waiting for a perfect person who would look past his shyness and want to take him home. When his adopter came in looking for an older cat, Dave instantly came out of hiding and jumped into her lap. He knew they were meant to be! Joyce immediately scooped him up and adopted him! In our recent update from Joyce, she has said that he is still getting used to his surroundings, and that he still is a bit shy. BUT she loves him anyways and is willing to let him take as much time as he needs. Joyce said she will always remember how sweet he was to her  the day she adopted him, and is willing to let him take his time in her home. She has another cat and they have even met a few times and seem to be doing great together. And his cute new nickname is Davie. We love hearing from our adopters! And Dave holds a special place in our staffs memories.

Sweet Success: Link & Navi

“We had been looking for a dog to complete our home for quite some time. It was originally only going to be one dog. We wanted to make sure they’d be a good fit for us. I had been interested in Link and Navi for awhile but it was convincing my boyfriend that two dogs were the right choice.

One day after work he had come home and asked me about the pair. I explained that two would be great because they’d love on each other and keep each other company. It was then he told me he went to Butte Humane to meet them and said they were the sweetest and coolest dogs he’d met so far.

The next day I went and adopted Link and Navi.

When we first brought them to the house, they immediately made themselves at home on our couch. We felt like they had been waiting for us and that we had them all along. Link has been such a joy to have. He is always by our side and loves to play chase. Navi has been such a love bug and enjoys cuddling. Her favorite thing is still to play catch and run around. Both are so loyal to us and we feel so lucky to have them in our lives. They also love each other and there was no separating these two, we’re so glad we didn’t.

These two have been to the beach, in the snow, camping, hiking and on roadtrips all over the place. We love bringing them with us everywhere we go and giving them the best life we can.

We couldn’t be happier with our choice to give them a forever home, our house is complete now and full of love.”

Sweet Success: Greg & Miranda

greg-sweet-success“Hello all –

Greg here. It is hard to believe, but our one year anniversary is upon us on April 1st. Thank you for your hospitality. I’m glad you found me my folks – they are good, they are as golden as my fur. I like it here and I am all settled in.

We recently got a new member to the family, her name is Miranda and she is full of energy. She likes to act tough around me, but I know she is really a softy so I just ignore her antics and she is coming around. I think that by the end of the year, we will be snuggle buddies.

I hope your good works are continuing well. Thank you for helping me find this home.

Best Wishes,

Greg”


“Hi friends –miranda-sweet-success

My new Mom and Dad are simply the best. Dad has a beard, which I find very interesting. I love to crawl in it and pat it. He is the best.

Oh, we have another cat here, his name is Greg. I have to tolerate him, he ignores me, but I feel like I have to growl at him at least a little. But, he is not really all bad, I just want Dad all to myself – oh but that would mean no Mom. I guess I just really like being the center of attention. Dad tells me stories and both Mom and Dad play lots of different games with me. they say I’m a natural mouser. I like to hear that.

Thank you for your hospitality earlier, I’m doing even better these days.

Yours Truly,

Miranda”
