Personally, one of my favorite methods to pass the time is by enjoying the company of my pets, and I know I’m not alone in this. Many people are spending their extra time pampering their furry friends or opening their hearts and homes to one or two new family members. Emily had this same idea, and now has two rat brothers keeping her company.

Liz Denton is in the business of finding homes for hard to place pets. Right now, her latest foster is Seamus, a Maine Coon cat with a bad habit of sneezing. It’s not life threatening but sounds bad enough when it’s happening. He’s settled into her house and is friends with Liz’s calico, Wheels (she has her own chariot aka wheelchair to get around).

Former army veteran Persephone “Perri” Morgan is more than content with her life in Great Marsh, Virginia. Her business crafting leather products for dogs and horses is booming, and her personal life is similarly at an all-time-high due to her relationship with hot journalist Wing Pruett. In the spirit of sharing some of her happiness with others, Perri and her two Belgian Malinoises are volunteering in a Therapy Dog program.

When the rescue agreed to take him, the shelter had him vetted and brought up to date on his vaccines. They, then, delivered him to Erica, a volunteer with the rescue.
