Feral Paws: Patty-Cake

I received a call from a lady wanting to adopt a cat, and she explained it was to keep her sister’s seventeen-year-old cat company. She said that her sister had passed away and the cat is her only last link to her sister. While her sister was very ill, her cat was constantly at her side. But now her cat is grieving, and she felt that maybe another older cat will help with this sadness.??

If you have spent a reasonable amount of time studying the effects of CBD for pets, you may have continuously wondered whether CBD oils like Charlotte’s web CBD oil is safe for your dog/cat to consume.

Just after Valentine’s Day, an adorable, fluffy kitten was brought to The Cat House on the Kings with a badly broken leg. We’re not sure how that happened, but we expect she may have been struck by a car. The veterinarian was unable to save her leg, so she’s now had it amputated and has been spayed. Though she’s now a tripod kitten, this doesn’t slow her down one little bit and she is still just as adorable as ever. Isn’t it amazing how resilient cats and kittens can be?

In some ways, dogs are like children. If you have more than one, one will become your favorite. I know parents try not to have favorites and won’t admit it, but it happens, usually to the one that is least able to fend for himself.

Feral Paws Rescue: Samson

This month I am going back in time seven years when my relationship with Feral Paws Rescue began, in February 2012. The first cat I got from the Rescue was a beautiful calico named Caleigh, and it went on from there. Each time Feral Paws Rescue would post on Facebook a black cat in need of saving from a kill-shelter, I inquired to see if they could pull him or her. In May 2012, one such post really got my attention.

Most of the adoption stories you hear from Rattie Ratz end right at the beginning of our ratties’ journey in their new families. We heard about Fantasia finding her forever home last year in KRLM. Let’s see how she’s doing, one year later!

After proving herself innocent of the murder of her almost ex-husband, Lilly Echosby left Indiana for Chattanooga, Tennessee, home of her dog-loving best friend Scarlett “Dixie” Jefferson. Lilly impulsively made the move along with her recently acquired rescue toy poodle Agatha, which makes finding a new living arrangement all the more difficult.

St. Tiggywinkle’s Wildlife Hospital has headed our bucket list since 2009. That’s when we bought a book called Something in a Cardboard Box at a National Trust shop during a previous visit to the UK. Having decided to visit relatives, as well as steam train and animal venues during our trip in September 2018, we were determined not to miss St. Tiggywinkles.

Wilfred is a five-year-old Terrier mix that came to Valley Animal Center in 2016. Wilfred was adopted, but unfortunately was returned to the center two years later because the owner was moving into a senior-living facility. Wilfred is shy and a bit timid around new people and dogs. This Terrier mix loves toys and is a great lap dog once he gets acclimated to his surroundings.
