Let’s Talk About Adoption


The Tribe of Five Felines Opine to save lives.

Hello All,
Jasmine here. Did you know it’s #RememberMeThursday? Do you know what #RememberMeThursday is? It’s an important event every year that is designed to honor and remember rescue animals and to share the importance of pet adoption with the world!

Every one of the #TribeOfFive is an adopted kitty. Two of us from a rescue in California and three of us from our local shelter, Panhandle Animal Shelter. It is our hope that  ALL pets find their furever homes.

Head on over to the Remember Me Thursday website to enter your rescues in the fantastic Remember the Rescue contest, light a candle for a rescue you’ve loved and lost and learn more about pet adoption and the amazing Helen Woodward Animal Center.

I hope you enjoy these adoption stories (and baby pictures) of The Tribe of Five.

After we lit our candles we had some fun pulling out old baby pictures.


Tucker the day he was rescued with his sister Jasmine

Tucker and I (Jasmine) were rescued by a very kind lady in California who took in our mom and all our siblings. The humans brought Tucker and me home with them when the rescue lady told them that we were best friends.  What evil being would separate best friends? Not our humans.

I’m named after the nice human who rescued us.






Lily at the shelter the day the female human met her.

Tucker and I moved here from California and after the humans were here for a while (and after our beloved Miss P. and Buster crossed the rainbow bridge) the female human met Lily at the Panhandle Animal Shelter.  The female human says she saw those eyes and it was love at first sight. Lily became part of the Tribe.

Finally, the humans decided to foster two kittens for the Panhandle Animal Shelter. Can you spell f-o-s-t-e-r- f-a-i-l-u-r-e?  (The female human says she will never regret this one “failure” in her life). The arrival of Oliver and Alberto turned our Tribe of Three into a Tribe of Five. Don’t tell them I said this but I kind of like those two goofballs.

And that, my friends are our adoption stories.  Our humans would tell you that adopting The Tribe of Five was one of the greatest things they’ve ever done. And even though Buster and Miss P. are no longer with us, they would never have missed all the years they had with them. The female human says that every feline that has been in her life has left paw prints on her heart.

    • Why thank you! It was fun walking down memory lane and seeing Tucker, Jasmine and Lily’s baby pictures because they were all grown up when we came to live here.
      Purrs & Head Bonks,


  2. Oh my gosh! Such cute kitten pictures! Soth was a year old when I recused him, so I don’t have any kitten pictures–thanks for letting me live vicariously through y’all with this post 😉

    • The female human got a bit weepy eyed when she walked down memory lane with those photos. We never knew Tucker, Jasmine or Lily as kittens so it was fun to see them too.
      Purrs & Head Bonks,


  3. We love your adoption stories and your kitten pics are just darling! Can you believe, we were also what the Lady Cat referred to as the Little Big Five until the Big Man Cat decided to adopt 5 more kitties from various dire situations. Now he is banned from looking at the “cats for adoption” sections at the vet. MOL Love from Mr. Jack and the ten Chirpies.

  4. What a lovely post, and I do verily believe there is no such thing as an adoption failure, it just takes the right human to come along to make it work… and it looks like you have the right ones for sure, and a wonderful home too as a result.

  5. I love Remember Me Thursday and am so glad that people are sharing their stories of adoptions. Honestly, as trying as she be at times, I can’t imagine life without Delilah. Congrats to all the kitties who found forever homes with you.
