In the next week, we’ll be getting a little dog about 7 years old. He’s a Chihuahua/Doxie mix (sometimes called a Ch-weenie!). More info on him after he arrives.
The beautiful little teenage kitten found on the north shore has now had her veterinary check up and is ready for adoption. We’re all surprised no one has called to report her missing since she is so social and well cared for. We’ve named her Brandy and you’ll find this cutie in the second cat room. I can’t imagine she will be with us for long so stop in and get acquainted with this calendar cat.
Three other cats have joined our group:
– Karla is the fluffy, all black cat adopted from us in November. Sadly, her person passed away so she is back with us. Karla is in the second cat room and getting reacquainted with her former roommates.
– Tabitha is a long haired, pastel tabby/tortie. Generally, she is very vocal and will chat with you endlessly. We’ve discovered she seems to enjoy time on the catio so we’ll set up a cozy nest for her along with food and water on the outside. She can come in whenever she wants to but seems to prefer the fresh outside air. Her former person walks with a cane and was concerned about tripping since Tabitha’s conversations usually include winding herself around your feet.
– Amanda is a striking calico but her orange and black patches are tabby patterned. Her person has to undergo major surgery and won’t be able to care for her. Amanda is about 7-ish. She hasn’t had her vet check yet so will remain in quarantine until Dr. Joe can see her. However, she isn’t in a cage. We’re giving her access to the whole room as the only occupant right now.
Sweet, declawed Sadie has been adopted and joined a wonderful home that didn’t mind she has a few years behind her.
We certainly have more than 3 cats needing a diet regimen and, thanks to Margaret Mills, there is a weigh in each week. Rocky has successfully lost over 5 lbs and will be going into foster care on Monday where he will continue his diet and also have the opportunity for more exercise. Ginger is losing a few ounces each week and now Simon is on the regimented diet as well. Right now Simon is in the kitten room so his food can be regulated. Ginger continues in the meeting room. We would like to find foster homes for Ginger and Simon as well as Benny and Scarlett so healthy weights can be achieved. The special food is provided as well as cat litter if anyone knows of someone who can give a hand.
Another beautiful day on Orcas!
