Today’s Featured Friday Pet is Patches!
Like many great beauties, Professor Dolores “Patches” Umbridge can be a little bit fickle when it comes to attention. Even though a bit of hot and cold is permissible when you’re this pretty, we think 1 year old Patches is bound to warm up permanently to the right person. This spirited little lady would thrive with someone well versed in “cat,” so if you pride yourself in your feline communication skills (and are a fan of the fluff), Patches wants to meet you! Patches (or Mrs. Umbridge, if you please) is also quite skilled with her quill work and collects plates with a “frolicksome feline” design! Being a member of the Slytherin she is an independent kitty but enjoys playing (on her terms of course). Fun fact: her patronus is a cat! Patches came from a home with other felines and should adjust to other kitties with a proper slow intro, but mature admirers only please (she gets enough of children at Pawgarts). Come meet the beautiful High Inquisitor herself today – during our Hairy Pawter and the Forever Home promo, her adoption fee is only $20.
Today’s Featured Friday Pet is Ebi!
Oh hi there, I’m Ebi! I’m a big 9 month old pup that’s full of energy and silliness. My friends at the shelter tell me that there are many expressions in the English language that were coined just for me. Among them “barrel of monkeys,” “life of the party,” “let your hair down,” and my favorite: “have a ball!” I am so honored to be the inspiration for such an array of intoxicating idioms. Anyway, a little more about me. I was adopted as a young pup, but had to be returned to the shelter when my family had to move out of the country and couldn’t bring me along. Wah wah. I have lots of energy and would love an active person; the doc does says I’m a little chonky which might account for why I’ve been known to tap out quickly. Want to lose a couple pounds with me? Let’s play! I already know sit and am eager to keep workin’ on my training and hope to find a person who loves teaching me new things.
What else…oh, I almost forgot the best part! I LOVE to play with other dogs! I am so friendly with them, in fact, that I have earned the prestigious title of Resident Dog Tester at the adoption center. My play style is rough and tumble (before I get tired and konk out) so if you have a canine that that needs a play buddy, you should come meet me! I’m such a sweet boy that can’t wait to meet my new best friend. Since I’ve been waiting over 2 weeks for a home, my adoption fee is only $20! Stop by to meet me today, and please share!
Today’s Featured Friday Pets are Grayson and Rambo!
Grayson and Rambo are our two longest term cats that may as well be brothers from another mother. These two boys have a lot in common – both are both senior (12 years) and FIV positive. They haven’t had the greatest luck – owner passing away, ending up stray, getting returned, you name it. Both are very sweet in their own unique ways – Grayson is a quiet lap cat with a gentle demeanor, Rambo is a quirky boy that loves to loiter wherever head scratches are being doled out. Each one will take a very special adopter looking to really make a difference in the life of an animal. Perhaps most notably, both possess a touch of RBF and an unexpected flair for fashion.
Although FIV used to be considered a death sentence, it has been shown that cats can live long, healthy lives with the disease. FIV cats simply need an indoor home where their exposure to disease is limited and a closer eye kept on their health. And since FIV is only spread through deep bite wounds, cat friendly FIV cats can mingle with negative cats – which both Grayson and Rambo have. We know the stigma is still there, which is unfortunate for these two amazing kitties, because they have waited so long to be given a chance. Both of their adoption fees have been sponsored, and it would make our New Year so bright to see one (or both) of them find their new homes. Rambo is the current foster kitty at Wild Birds Unlimited, and Grayson is at our adoption center!
