On June 3, 2016 we recieved an adopt-iversary update from Krystal who gave a FURever home to a sweet kitty named Molly!

"Six years ago today, I adopted Molly. She is the nicest, most sweet and loving cat ever. She is just so happy to just be in your presence. When we first met Molly she was so quiet and timid. But once she was taken out and my dad got to hold her....she started to purr. I knew immediately, this is MY cat and it's been wonderful ever since. She even loves my older cat Kiyo, they were best friends at first sight. I am so thankful for thier friendship. I'm glad that I could give her a second chance. She has definitely brightened my life. Her new name Kari. It is shortened from Hikari which is the Japanese word for light. She definitely lives up to that name! Thanks for giving me my best friend!"
