Senior dog Wilson has found a home on San Juan Island. He now lives on a farm with a slightly younger female Retriever mix, 4 cats, horses and chickens. He has been the perfect gentleman with all the critters. His new people are continuing his diet and he also gets veggies to make him feel full. His former doggie girlfriend, Penny, certainly misses him and pined for Wilson for a day or so. Kt is walking Penny and Buddy together so Penny seems happy with his company.
Morey is now enjoying indoor/outdoor access in the second cat room. As a senior cat and not at all friendly when he first arrived, he’s turned a corner and now loves to be petted. Since most of his life has been spent outside, being in a cage was probably pretty frightening and made him quite defensive. We’ll continue to monitor his health but he is definitely a cat used to other felines. Morey is totally comfortable with all his roommates and even tries to rub up against them. Isabella was quite surprised at the attention from Morey but didn’t complain by hissing or giving him a whack.
Ginger is back in the meeting room again due to the arrival of 2 kittens. Willie (Nelson) and (Prince) Harry arrived Wednesday from our shelter partner in Anacortes. They asked for our help since they were dealing with a hoarding and domestic violence situation. The two boys are totally different even though both are red heads. Willie is more strawberry blonde and has fur sticking out of his ears and pretty much his whole body. He’s the wild one and the younger of the two. Harry is more sedate and definitely can portray a regal demeanor. He’s the typical dark orange tabby. Harry is probably 3 – 4 months old; Willie maybe 8 – 9 weeks. It’s hard to tell since we don’t know what kind of diet they had in their former surroundings. Dr. Joe will give us a better idea of their age on Monday. We already have a potential adoption for both boys to go together.
Attached is the flyer for the Wine Class. The last one in 2012 was great fun and very informative. Make a spot on your schedule to join us and support the shelter at the same time.
