After weeks of a lot of time well-spent training her, we are proud to say she now jumps in the car & snuggles next to our baby girl; goes up & down stairs; when on walks, if we stop, she sits down & waits to go again. She also loves to fetch & will lay down & wait for her food. She has been a wonderful addition to our family! We absolutely LOVE her!
We came to the Humane Society in January of 2013 not really knowing whether or not we wanted another animal. We already had a 6-year-old cat and a dog about to turn 1 year in February. My fiance noticed Stewie, a little black and orange tortie, and fell in love immediately. Stewie was a little bit sick, we noticed, and told a staff member about it. We decided to put Stewie on hold after that until she was well enough to be put back up for adoption. We waited almost 3 weeks but by the time that phone call came we just weren’t able to adopt another animal so, reluctantly, we told them to take our hold off of her.
I was still hopeful about finding a perfect fit for us so I kept checking the website multiple times a day, looking at other cats, kittens and even dogs. Somewhere in that week or so Stewie had disappeared from the site and it was so sad because we thought she was gone for good. By this time it was the end of February or the first week of March and Stewie was back on the website and we both went “oh my goodness”!
So the next day we went as early as we could and got a visit set up and immediately after waiting for her for over a month we just couldn’t wait any longer.
Adopting Stewie from the humane society in Tampa has been the best decision we have ever made to make our family complete. I would just like to thank Rhonda at the Tampa Humane Society as well, she was such a trooper being patient with us while we or I visited multiple times a week trying to decide on which angel to adopt. THANK YOU RHONDA!
Stewie is finally super healthy, her coat is luxurious and soft and there’s no more coughing or wheezing. We have a happy, healthy baby! Thank you so much!

We adopted Brooke (left) in February 2012 and Ben (right) in July 2012. They have become the best of friends and are inseparable. We call them our beautiful brindle babies and could not imagine life without them. We are happy that they have both found their forever homes! Thank you HSTB.
