Today’s Featured Friday Pet is Josephine!

Grey cat with white stripe on nose looks up at camera as she lays downAfter being in a shelter for months, we think it’s high time Ms. Josephine gets her due! Originally a stray, we don’t know much about Josephine’s back story, but her rescuer did note that she seemed friendly towards other cats and that she was very skinny. We are very happy to report that Josephine has since chonked up quite impressively, and we hope those scrawny days are gone forever! With her heart-shaped nose, voluptuous bod and perfect eyeliner, Josephine is a beautiful, body-positive gal that isn’t too shy to ask for belly rubs or lounge around showing off her curves. At 9 years old, Josephine the perfect age for a cat – calm and settled with middle age but still years of love left to give.

This quiet and affectionate kitty would be perfect for a mature home with or without other cats. She would prefer an indoor home as she is none too eager to end up back on the streets, and promises she’ll be a model house-guest. Sure, kittens are cute, but did you know the best indicators of owning a healthy kitten are constant sleep deprivation and spending three times as much on toilet paper? True story. The laid-back Josephine is currently strutting her stuff over at Wild Birds Unlimited in Hendersonville, and we hope you will go visit her! Her adoption fee is discounted and she really hopes to find her new family very soon.

Today’s Featured Friday Pet is Grecco!

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a…Greccodilly! This snaggle-toothed wonder dog has been patiently waiting for the right person, and we think it’s high time he finds his happily ever after. Grecco was brought in as a stray with what turned out to be a BB pellet lodged in his tongue 🙁 We’re assuming Grecco has perhaps had some not-so-stellar interactions with humans at some point, but he remains a super friendly, fun-loving little dog that really enjoys playtime and people alike. Like anyone with some potential trauma in their past, Grecco has a few quirks, and is looking for a mature, dog-experienced home that can help him overcome his leash sensitivity. If you already know what that means, then you might be the right person to help Grecco become the very best Grecco he can be! Considering his great size of 27 pounds and sweet and silly disposition, we can’t believe no one has seen past his imperfections and given this sweet guy a chance yet.

Grecco is 4 years old, fits great in laps, and seems playfully interested in other dogs. We are recommending an adult only home or home with older children, and an appreciation for awkward underbites is required. Grecco has been with us over 14 days, so his adoption fee is discounted! His bags are packed and he is ready for his new family TODAY! Please consider stopping in to meet little Grecco to see if he’s the Grecco for you!

Today’s Featured Friday Pet is Boston!

Chunky-faced Boston is a a cat with (quite literally a lot of) head and heart. Quiet, noble and dignified, we imagine that in a past life, Boston was a brilliant and sensitive poet that spent a lot of time in dimly lit drinking establishments. His quiet and slightly rough exterior belies a truly lovely personality – gentle, a bit shy, and very loving. This 4 year old double-stuffed face cat never makes much of a peep, but don’t think it’s because he’s not thinking big thoughts. There’s a lot of soul behind those bright green eyes, and we’re pretty sure the term “still waters run deep” was coined just for him.

Boston has been with us for almost two months and we have no idea why. It’s hard being an adult black cat in a shelter this time of year, watching all those pesky kittens fly off the shelves straight into their new homes. Just pretend Boston is a kitten, shall we, a very large kitten that won’t keep you awake all night trying to eat your toes. Other cats don’t seem to faze him much and he should get along fine with a proper introduction. He loves to weave against your legs in greeting and to have you scratch those beefy cheeks of his. That, and a cozy spot to contemplate life in is pretty much all this beautiful boy wants. Doesn’t someone have a mini Panther sized hole in their heart in need of filling?

Since Boston has been with us over two weeks, his adoption fee is discounted! It would make our week if someone took the time to get to know this sweet guy. Please consider stopping in to meet him today!
