name: JackGoesForth (Richmond, VA)
date: September 16, 2010
message:  Omigod! Was bartending at Cha Chas last night when I saw the cutest little puss* ever! I grabbed her up, “Miss Thing,” and instantly fell in love with my new green friend. She looked thirsty so I filled up a bottle cap full of tequila and watched adoringly as she licked it right up. ‘Miss Thing’ turned out to be an angry drunk, just like her daddy, and she proceeded to scratch the living hell out of me. I still love her though. I put Miss Thing out in the backyard today so she could chase and maim all the little rodents out there.  This weekend I plan on introducing Miss Thing to her new home: The back bar at Cha Chas Cantina. I hope she doesn’t drink all the tequila!

date: July 11, 2010
message:  When my friends and I spotted the lostcats tip, we RAN out of Starlite, promising Beau the bartender that we’d be back soon to pay our tabs, “Promise!” His supportive response of, “GO GO GO!” made me smile as we sprinted out the door. A short time later, I found little Snowball chilling out on this windowsill.  I gave him to Beau upon our return to Starlite, in thanks for his support of a bunch of “kids at heart” who rushed to go rescue some lost kitties. Little Snowball has a great home with a sweet guy who really appreciates him.

    Found Cat! I caught a twitpic of Squirt hanging around Penny Lane Pub and ran up 5th to rescue him! After a cuddly evening with his 2 living&breathing cat sisters in my Carytown apartment, he is now perched on my desk at work, purring. I’m in love. Thank you!!

    @Priya, Thank you for your kind update this morning (it brought us smiles all around!)
    We would love a photo if and when you have any to share. And we couldn’t be prouder of little Rufus! Sounds like one lucky kitty — best wishes for safe and adventurous travels to India.
