I have been a volunteer with Cats At The Studios for 30 years. I can't say enough about Elyse and all of the volunteers. Everyone is there when needed. I thank Elyse and the volunteers for 30 years of wonderful memories. Thousands of cats and kittens have found homes because of this organization. Thank you.

Cats at the Studios is absolutely wonderful! Our family has had the pleasure of adopting two of the most loving, playful and beautiful kittens from their organization. We first met Dee about 2 years ago, and were so impressed with her kindness and dedication to finding just the perfect home for her foster cats and kittens. This organization is professional, compassionate and committed to their animals and the families involved. We adopted "Samson" two years ago, and he is an amazing joy! Just last month, we adopted our second kitten from Dee, and his name is "Peanut." He is the most loving and happy kitten we have ever met! (We have kept their original names because they fit them perfectly!) We are so incredibly thankful to Dee and Cats At The Studios for providing and opportunity to meet and adopt two precious additions to our family. We also appreciate all that they do for the animal community. The amount of lives that they have saved and the quality of life that they have helped provide, for both the animals and families, are immeasurable. We will continue to support Cats At The Studio because they are fantastic!

Many Thanks,
The Russell Family

I cannot say enough good things about Cats At The Studio Inc! My two cats are now 8 yrs old & I still keep in touch with Cheri & stay in the loop with what is going on (like helping dear Muffin this week get his surgery). My cats are beyond sweet and Cheri cared for them as infants. Cat rescue is her mission in life! I knew when I adopted them that Cats At The Studio was SPECIAL. This group are beyond dedicated to animals. They are very hands-on, and very careful to make sure their babies go to truly good homes. There are no short-cuts here, everything is done 100 percent. They are Fantastic, and the cats know it!

This organization means a lot to me. I adopted my first cat from C.A.T.S INC. Cheri was his foster - she was so kind and caring towards her animals it melted my heart. After having my cat for about a week and calling her for advice here and there I felt I wanted to do the same. So I applied to become a volunteer - which I was only for a couple of years. It was inspiring being around people who pour their hearts into helping cats and making sure each one of them was adopting into their loving forever homes.

Cats at the Studios is a wonderful rescue organization. I adopted my first cat (then a kitten) in June of 2012. What a lovely experience; you can tell the foster parents and volunteers know a lot about cats. I adopted a second kitten (almost a cat now!) in June of 2014. Both of the cats from Cats at the Studios were bottle babies with their very best foster parent. Both so very healthy and full of personality! They are careful about adoptive parents and do a great job of rescuing kittens from shelters. You can't go wrong adopting a fur baby from Cats at the Studios!

All four of my cats are CATS at the Studios cats! Over the years, I have seen all of the time, money, and love that the volunteers and fosters put into each and everyone of their cats. They do so much for these precious beings. Although every one of their volunteers and fosters are amazing, I have a special place in my heart for Cheri. I have a few of her 'bottle babies" and they are sooooo sweet. Cheri has such a kind heart and her clients become members of her family. I send her updated pictures all of the time. I would encourage everyone to adopt from CATS. They are best of the best!

I adopted my first fur kid, Samten, 8 years ago after losing my 12 year old cat to cancer. Samten is a bottle fed baby that was fostered by Cheri at CATS. From day one he has been healthy, happy and well cared for, and it quite the social little fella! When I lost another cat to kidney failure, I knew I wanted to adopt again from Cheri at CATS, so about 3 years ago she blessed me with Boss, another bottle fed baby that's even more social and precocious than his brother. I recommend CATS to everyone I know who is looking for a cat. It's a fantastic organization full of people who truly care and want to make a difference. They screen the candidates before allowing adoption, ensure the cats are healthy, and provide a loving environment that allows the cats to thrive until they find their forever home.

We were searching for a new "family member" when we stumbled onto CATS. Their offerings were obviously loved and well cared for, and we left with our delightful Konaleo. We agreed (in writing) to a certain level of care, which shows how much They care, and were steered to a vet they recommend for shots, neutering, etc. We continue to follow them via emails and videos and are aware of their success in locating, saving and placing cats/kittens in good homes. We recommend CATS highly to anyone we know looking to adopt a cat; we couldn't be happier with the high level of caring and professionalism of this organization.

What a wonderful, wonderful group of people Cats At The Studios people are. We adopted two rescue sisters when our daughter was six. They were healthy and wonderfully socialized, not to mention litter box trained. There was a follow up visit to make sure our kittens had a good environment to grow up in. Various members of the group check in through social media to see how we are all doing and we happily post photos of our "fur family members". Our sisters are now grown up cats about six years old, still healthy and happy. It's hard to believe how time flies.

The dedication, love and personal sacrifice that the members of Cats At The Studios put into making sure all these kittens and cats have forever homes is inspiring and humbling.

Our daughter was so moved by what they do that she asked for donations to the group for her birthday one year, in lieu of presents.

I can assure anyone looking to adopt a rescue pet that you won't have to worry about anything. Cats At The Studios is transparent about the health and needs of all of the pets they rescue. You'll find a good match.

I feel so lucky to have adopted two brother kitties from Cats at the Studios Inc.
because they were acclimated to interacting with humans from birth.
Being bottle fed, held and played with allowed them to bond with their foster care
parent until they were old enough to adopt. They immediately bonded with me!
I have had other cats who were not this lucky, and altho they became personalized
they didn't start out that way.
The people who run this nonprofit have the welfare of the animals, both physically
and emotionally, in mind. Thanks for all your caring. I hope you can continue to
save abandoned kittens.
