    I adopted my sweet boy Toby (formerly “Top Cat”) way back in 2007, and he is still going strong! I lived in Brooklyn after I graduated from college, near Hope Vet Clinic, and would often stop on my walk home after work to admire the sweet kitties they had in their lobby being fostered through Infinite Hope. One day, I was inside the vet’s office with my friend and her pet and I noticed a quiet little guy named Top Cat in one of the kennels. A sucker for cute black cats, I asked if I could meet and play with him, and when he immediately began to purr on my lap, I knew I had found my soul cat. I applied to adopt Top Cat/Toby that same weekend and the rest is history!

    Toby has seen many sights in the fourteen years we’ve spent together. He moved with me to New Jersey, then Michigan, and finally to North Carolina where we live now with his little brother, Mac (also a black cat. I guess I have a type). In that time he’s lived with other cats, dogs, several human roommates, and even a few rabbits. He loves entertaining guests with his signature raspy singing voice, watching birds and squirrels from the window, and having a good snuggle before bed (on his terms, of course). Now that he’s around 15, he’s slowed down a bit in recent years, but still enjoys wrestling with Mac and chasing him around the house. We’ve truly grown up together, and I can’t imagine my life without him.

    Thank you for bringing the right cat into my life at exactly the right time. It’s been such a wonderful journey!

    -Kate and Toby (and Mac)

    In the fall of 2009, I found the most awesome cat who ever lived on Petfinder. His name is Nino. He was in Brooklyn and I was in Cherry Hill, NJ, so I sent two of my Brooklyn friends to meet him at Infinite Hope at Hope Vets. They loved the big guy, so I drove up and adopted him the next day.

    Nino is the highlight of my life; the bright spot in all my days…my smart, funny, fearless, sensitive orange man. Adopted at 11, and now healthy, happy and energetic at age 19, we celebrate Nino’s birthdays with his Godfathers from Brooklyn. He loves gifts, and is always the first one to taste the buttercream icing on his cakes. He brings you his glow-in-the-dark ball when he wants to play fetch, and he keeps his roommate Tiger, who is half his age, from sleeping too much! He wakes me up every morning, exactly one minute before the alarm goes off. He is a champion at head butts. Nino is a refined gentleman at vet visits – he will not be intimidated! He is, after all, a Brooklyn boy, so he has to represent.

    Thank you, Infinite Hope, for allowing this Jersey Girl to take home your Brooklyn boy. Because of you, Nino was given a chance at a wonderful life, which ultimately brought an immeasurable amount of joy to my own.
