Our two shy Jack Russell Terrier mixes have gone to a home together. Noodles and Stella are lucky to be with a quiet couple who’ve had Jack Russells in the past. The girls are already using a dog door for outside time and warming up to their new people.
Mika, the almost perfect dog, is on a sleepover with an active family. We’re keeping fingers crossed this is the right match for them and for her. The dad is a runner so Mika will get lots of exercise plus the two boys will provide play time. The mom will be the soft touch for Mika to cuddle.
Presently, we are sheltering a 9 month old puppy brought in by the Sheriff’s Dept. Nikita’s person is in jail but we don’t know for how long and there is no family member or friend to care for her. She’s a sweet dog, eager to please and had a wonderful time playing with Mika. Kt has been working on her manners and Nikita responds well. We think we’re a spa for this dog with plenty of food, exercise and company. In the past, we’ve provided food for her person so we hope, at some point, he will realize we can find a more appropriate home for her.
Calico mom cat gave birth to kittens on the 21st. We’re not sure how many yet but have been able to identify a brown tabby, an orange tabby, a white with orange patches and an all gray. There may be one more but the babes are in such a pile next to mom, it’s hard to see them all. We’re keeping the light off in the room since their eyes aren’t open but staff will visit regularly to check on them.
Year old Sherrie will leave for a home today and possibly either Willow or Evie, too. They will be indoor cats and have a great home with a couple losing an elderly cat months ago. They decided they were finally ready to bring a new cat into their home. Sometimes it does take time for folks to grieve before being ready to take in new furry friends.
