We adopted Loka (formerly Cricket) in January and Piper (formerly Isis) in March. They both had troubled pasts, but now they’re living a life a human could only dream of.
Both of our girls are so so sweet, Piper wakes us up every morning with nuzzles and purring and biscuit making. Loka is our shadow and is always hanging around with us. We’re so happy our tortie girls came home this year and we’re so grateful for everything Longstreet has done for them!!

This is Buster boy, living his best life. We adopted him in august 2020. Other rescues would not allow us to adopt with 3 year old twins in the house. I am glad to report buster loves his human sisters and they love him!

We adopted Mountain Momma in January 2020 and she went through a plethora of names, including Princess Flufflepuff- but now we just call her Mama. She is the most lovey, goofiest cuddle bug, with a huge purr motor! She brings us so much joy!

Our sweet Beth. She came to us as a foster with her sister, Amy. After they both had their babies and raised them well, Amy went to live with her family and Beth became a part of ours. She is so funny and loving and doesn’t think twice about giving the dogs a good smack if they need one.

Twix (formerly Gabriel) is doing wonderfully! He has bonded so well with our other kitten, Snickers, and he continues to be the most easy going and tolerant cat we have ever encountered.
-- Jackie M.
We adopted Percy, although his name was James when he was with you all. He is now 2 years old and is thriving! He is healthy and happy and bonded with the 5 year old cat we had when we adopted him. Here is a photo of him being his goofy self! He is super talkative and we always laugh because you all warned us he would be, and he just chats all day. He is the best and we love him.

TCAL works to support cats in danger on all ends of the age spectrum. The kitten stories will tug at your heart, all those young fragile lives at risk. But there are other stories, across the age spectrum, cases such as Doris. Her very elderly owner had no choice but to give up Doris and her 39 other feline housemates because he was dying. At 17 years old, Doris would not have much chance at some shelters: there are few potential adopters for a cat so senior.
So we stepped in and brought her into the TCAL “family.” Doris is suffering from an ear infection and has developed a wheeze that we are trying to resolve; in spite of that, she has been doing very well in her foster home: bright, active, alert, and insanely loving. Her foster laughs that one of the challenges is Doris drooling on her because she’s so happy to snuggle and be petted. At TCAL, we try to save even the challenging cases and, while the dollar costs may be high, the rewards are beyond price. We cannot do it without the support of others who also believe that even the unlikeliest cases deserve a chance.

Wow. We have, yes, five kitties adopted from The Cats at Longstreet (and no, we’re really not crazy cat people— just cat people.)
We are so thankful that The Cats of Longstreet rescued them, and all the other kitties they’ve saved.
Eddie and Jonesy are brother and sister, our oldest, at 7.
Eddie is a big snuggle bunny. He loves to be held and petted until he falls asleep. He always likes to be near us, napping or playing. He’s great buddies with Hobie, our other male cat.
Jonesy is shy, but very sweet. She sleeps on my shins at night, purring until she dozes off. She’d rather be with her hoomans than the other cats, so she stays mostly in our bedroom. She likes to explore the house at night, when the other four kitties are down in our finished walk-out basement, sleeping with our daughter (whose bedroom is there).
Hobie came to us as a one year old, when we saw him at a Cats of Longstreet open house. He’s a big four year old cat now, and very handsome. He loooooves to be petted. He has quite a large vocabulary, so he can tell us when he wants “the pets” or his dinner. He has the most expressive face of any cat we’ve known, and he loves being talked to (and “talking” in response); and sprawling belly-up on our laps to take a nap. He and Eddie are best buddies.
Star and Pesca are two-year old sisters, who came to us after being rescued by Cats of Longstreet from Maryland. They are both adventurous and playful, with the loudest purrs we’ve ever heard. They love to chase light-beams and toys, and then ask for pets and snuggles. They are great buddies.
Star is the more adventurous of the “kitten” sisters, and she likes to look down on us from the top of a bookshelf in our family room. Pesca and Star love to watch birds through the back windows (where we have bird feeders). Star and Pesca both love being petted and talked to, getting kitty treats, playing with their toys, getting lots of “pets”, and especially catnip!
All our kitties bring us joy, brighten our lives, and love us as much as we love them.
