Prince, Olivia, Pumpkin and Frankie

In May 2016 I adopted beautiful and lovely Frankie who, due to health reasons, had lived at the Shelter for approx. 10 years. At the time I was told that Frankie had a special friend and playmate at the shelter, Prince. I met him and totally fell for him. However I needed to find out how Frankie would get along with my 3 cat and 2 dog family. All went very well and in August I made arrangements to pick up Prince (see photo). While at the shelter I met two other adorable cats, both with rather sad stories, Olivia a 13 year long haired, orange tabby and Pumpkin, about 5 or 6, an unusual grey haired calico. That "fateful" day, I drove home with three cats! I also already just had adopted two other cats, we now are a large family. But all get along beautifully! They sleep, eat, play together and have formed very loving, affectionate bonds with me (and each other). Olivia, being quite elderly (she has arthritis) follows me like a dog and at night sleeps on my shoulder. It is so wonderful to have been able to give such an elderly cat a second home at such an advanced age. Prince, totally toothless, had been at the shelter most of his 4-5 year life. He has formed a very strong, playful bond with one of my other cats, Soxsie. They play for hours, never hurting each other and are inseparable. Pumpkin, a rescue (by Furry Friends) from the Georgina animal shelter is a most intelligent, affectionate sweetie. 


To have adopted the four cats - Frankie, Olivia, Prince and Pumpkin - from the most wonderful shelter, Furry Friends, has been a fantastic, happy and life changing experience, for me and the cats. We are one happy, loving family. The Connell Clan
