Cat Success Stories

  • Jesk


    We thought fostering would be a great idea, but let me tell you this boy captured our heart. Jesk (was Fray) was so timid when we picked him up but within days he was a part of the family. He loves to wake us up at night to knead and roll on our necks but we can't be mad because it's such a sweet way to be woken. Full of energy, loves wrestling with Finn and Eden and is obsessed with making the roof on his kitten bed collapse. Sweet boy has the most beautiful big orange/brown eyes I've ever seen. He is so happy, and loved. We are so lucky to have him. Easy cure for my empty nest syndrome from my children now becoming adults. Jesk is just like having a little toddler running around!
  • Finn


    Always a huge smile on his face, he's a sucker for any toy you put infront of him, Loves treats and tries to sneak human food every chance he gets. Judging by the (healing) wounds on Finns neck, I can tell he had a very rough start in life. That being said, Finn is one of the most loving, trusting, curious, loyal kittens I have ever come across. The only time Finn leaves my side is when his brother gets hyper and initiates playtime. Otherwise he's stuck to me like glue. I call him my Shadow. I'm sure that when Finn came to your facility he was uncomfortable, in pain, scared and lost. I feel like the care he received from your staff is the reason he continued to keep a positive attitude,all while getting his wounds and illness cared for by some of the best. Thank you all for all that you do for animals who come in injured or ill. My Finn sure is lucky to have landed in your care. I have vowed to him to make sure he will always be safe, loved, happy and healthy and that he never suffers in the way he began his life.
  • Biscotti


    I went to the shelter to get a second kitty so that my cat at home would have a friend. I told the staff what I was looking for and they pointed me in the perfect direction. In the first cat room I visited, I met Biscotti and fell in love. He was shy at first, but I took a chance on him. He was home 3 days later and he has come out of his shell. He’s showing that he can be a playful, snuggly, sweet cat who just needed the right person to love him. I’m so thankful to the staff for connecting me with this amazing kitty.
  • Loki


    Our kitty was originally named Toasted Marshmallow but that was a bit too lengthy for his pet tag. After being home for a week we tossed names back and forth because we weren't sure what to rename him. It was a lengthy list but as soon as the name Loki came out we knew it was the perfect name. He's a bit of a mischief maker but in a good way so the name was perfect. He loves to cuddle... only at 2 am, and only in the middle of the bed. Melissa C.
  • Melvin


    Hi! I’m Melvin and I’m a 10 year old medium-haired cat. When my parents saw me in the shelter, I was very shy and not very playful. Since I’ve been in my forever home, I’ve gone from hiding under the bed to snuggling next to my parents all the time, and sleeping with them in bed. I also love my little mouse toys!
  • Leo & Phoebe

    Leo & Phoebe

    Leo and Phoebe were named Smile and Twinkle at the shelter. We adopted them two months ago and are so happy to have them. Leo is an easygoing sweetheart who loves to rub his lips on your face. Phoebe is spunky little girl with a loud purr and a big appetite. Their big brother Rusty is getting used to them but not quite in love yet like we are. Rusty, Leo and Phoebe are the stars of my Instagram account. Thank you for rescuing and caring for my fur babies. Mary R.
  • Fáilte


    Fáilte is an Irish word meaning "welcoming" and he definitely lives up to that name! Every time I see Fáilte I am greeted with a little meow and lots of snuggles. His favorite thing to do is curl under my neck and give me little nose kisses. Fáilte also lives to sleep of surfaces that his front feet and head can hang from! Thank you OAHS for offering me this opportunity for such an amazing family member! Ashley K.
  • Hugo


    I adopted Hugo from OAHS at the end of November. He is an amazing companion and is incredibly cute! Hugo has a habit of being clumsy, but he makes up for it with all his goofy faces. His favorite look is sticking his tongue out! I'm so happy OAHS gave me this opportunity to another addition to the family! Ashley K.
  • Jack


    I could not have gotten a better cat than Jack to love! With being new to the area and moving away from home he has brought so much joy to my life! I honestly can not thank you all enough!! McKenzie S.
  • Catsby


    We brought Catsby (was Monkey) home a few weeks ago. He has settled in well with our resident dog, and is starting to get our resident cat to warm up to him as well. We had a bit of a rough start. Catsby had some health issues at the beginning but the good news is he is on the proper treatment for both ailments and is starting to feel great! The sores that were behind his ears from when he was surrendered are gone and the fur is starting to grow back as well!
  • Snickers


    Snickers is doing great. Her sniffles went away. She’s out and about with the rest of the group, no issues. Everyone is very respectful of her, and she could care less if they’re there. Her favorite spot to sleep is in the cat tree. Thank you! Samantha Fafnis
  • Marmalade


    I like to play with my brother, Achilles and sister, Bovie. I like watching the birds on the feeder while I sunbathe in the window. I will eat any and all human food. I come to my name when there is soft food for dinner. My Dad says when I jump, I land with a thud like a bowling ball. I still love my camo blanket.
  • Vasi & Mishka

    Vasi & Mishka

    Since we adopted our two humans, they appear to have adapted quite well.We have mastered the game of hide and seek. Mom and Dad got us a cat tree, and to make them happy, we pretend to like it. Mishka reached a major milestone this week as she has figured out how to drink from the faucet. Next step is teaching her how to shut the water off. Headbutts and Purrs, Vasia and Mishka
  • Ivan & Izzy

    Ivan & Izzy

    Our kitties Ivan (Chrizo) and Izzy (Syrup) are doing great. The have acclimated well to their new home and to there new canine buddy, Samson. They received a thumbs up from the vet! We are so happy that we could give them a comfortable and loving home. Matt & Tammy Brown
  • Rascal


    November 19, 2018 Everything is going amazing with Rascal. She is now a lap cat. She loves to sit in the window and watch the animals, people, and cars driving by, and has learned how to open the shades by herself. She also loves to sit on our homework and cuddle up in our laps or in bed on fuzzy blankets. She loves to pull her favorite toys out of her toy box at 5 a.m. and sprint around the house, jumping onto the furniture. She's crazy, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Her head tilt has made her balance a little off but she has learned how to manage jumping onto the bed, into the window sills, and playing very well! She loves to wear her special collars too! She knows she is the queen of the house. Ciara Trunnell, Kyle Stevinson, and Rascal
  • Sugar & Bingo

    Sugar & Bingo

    November 13, 2018 Sugar and Bingo are doing fine. They like to chase each other and wrestle. Lena Arts
  • Polly


    I adopted Polly 12-13-2018, Polly loves getting her belly rubbed, playing with her toys and lounging in the sun, sometimes watching birds and squirrels on the upper deck. Loves exploring our house, at night she sleeps on my bed purring with full content. Polly and I thank you Oshkosh Humane Society. Thomas Mengeling

  • Nala


    My humans are very good people. I get lots of pets, cuddles, yummy treats and fun toys. My favorite place in the house is on my human sister’s bed. It's oh so soft! I'm an older but still very sweet girl. I love to cuddle up with my human sister when I get cold. When my people pet me I try to return the love and pet them back. I'm so happy with my new forever home! Love, Nala, adopted by Ashley Steenis.
  • Odie


    I adopted Odie on July 27th and he has settled in very comfortably. He loves laps, carrying around his sparkle ball toys, watching the birds at the feeders and just generally "cat lounging". He is 9 and his adopted brother is 15 but they still have cat races through the house with one in the lead one time and the other leading the next time. He has been a great addition to the family and also inspects Christmas presents as you can see from the picture. OAHS thanks for keeping him until I could adopt him! Cathy Kaspar
  • Honey


    I'm 12 years old and was adopted by Holly & Miranda on 1/10/17. I like to nap, eat, play with my toys (especially at night), and paw at my reflection in the mirror. Something Special About Me: You may not have known it in the Humane Society because I was a little cranky with the others cats, but I am a VERY loving cat and I adore scratches & cuddles from my moms.
  • Mikey


    We adopted Mikey on 9-2-16. He is a gray tabby and is the sweetest boy. He loves playing with his brother Ricky who we adopted on the same day! He LOVES to eat so he already could lose some weight. He is cuddly and is such a honey! Mary Kay Heath
  • Ricky


    We adopted Butters, now Ricky, on 9-2-16. He is all kitten and more. He loves to play and be by us a lot. He does get carried away so some days are challenging! We love him to pieces. He is so cute you can't stay mad at him. Ricky loves to play with his "brother" Mikey we adopted on the same day. He also has a step-sister Margo. They really don't like each other. Oh, well... Mary Kay Heath
  • Theodore


    We adopted Fluffy Mcfly, now Theodore, in November. We were at OAHS getting our other cats in for nail caps. While waiting, this little energetic black kitty started playing with our fingers. We instantly fell in love. After lots of pondering if we should get a 5th cat, we decided to adopt him. He instantly fit right in. He is constantly running around with his brothers and making us laugh every second. Looking at him makes us feel so happy and lucky he was at the front desk that day and how we changed his life forever. Madison Wendt
