Bachelorette of the Week: Rosalee – ADOPTED!

Updated: 5/31/16  Rosalee has found a lovely home with a nice family who is ready to augment her green ball collection!

Today, world, we have Rosalee, a distinctly single little lady that happens to look like a certain lady I know that lives with our friend Glogirly. 

Rosalee, masked woman of many hobbies.

You know what I heard about Ms. Rosalee? That she’s soft. Real soft. Like, have you ever petted a sheep who has been rolled in cotton and laid out an air-cushion bed? Rosalee is even softer than that. I mean, I would sleep on her, know what I mean? She also has lotsof hobbies. Let me check my list…. ah yes. She chirps, meows, plays with a mouse, collects green balls, chases snake wands, and has a passion for cardboard scratchers. Oh, also, she’s not really big into other cats, so she’s looking to be your one and only. I think that’s pretty much her only special need. She just wants to be your only special. Is that too much to ask? I don’t think so.

If you want to meet Rosalee, you can contact Feral Fixers in Chicago, IL. Visit her here at her Petfinder page. She would love to meet you!

Bachelor of the Week: Apple Pie! – ADOPTED!

UPDATE 3/28/16:  This great guy was adopted, along with another special needs kitty. Hurray!!!

Today I have a treat for you!  I realize it’s St. Patrick’s Day, but please remember that Pi Day was earlier this week. And so, I bring you a lovely slice of Apple Pie.

Dessert!

Dessert!

Have you ever seen an apple pie with this lovely of a face, or really, with any face at all? Highly unlikely. This particular pie was not made in a cozy bakery. NO! This pie is from the street. He’s a street pie. But don’t let that concern you. It hasn’t diminished his quality at all! He’s just an All-American slice of pie, hold the eyelids. But again, what pie have you ever seen with eyelids? Probably none.

Apple Pie has  eyelid agenesis trichiasis, which means he requires artificial tears several times a day to stop his little lashes from rubbing on the surface of his eyes. There are a few different options to treat this, such as removing his eyelashes (will require period visits to the vet) or getting his eyelids repaired. He doesn’t yet have the funds needed for a distinct course of treatment, so he’s going with the eye drops for now. It’s like drizzling a bit of caramel sauce on your pie – it just makes him all the more lovely.

Apple Pie’s appearance here today was a request from our friends at As The World Purrs in conjunction with Great Plains SPCA Merriam. To learn more about Apple Pie, visit his website!  He’s still a tiny little guy who loves to play and would love to meet you! Please share his little pie face and help him find his home!

UPDATE: I’ve received word that a kind doctor has agreed to do the eyelid surgery pro bono for Apple Pie!  That means all he needs is a home! Step one complete! HURRAY!!!!

Bachelorette of the Week: Olive!

World,

 .
I’ve decided to spice up your life a bit today with a discussion of Olives.
 .
Some olives are green or brown, some black. Some are spicy and some mild and a few may have a hint of added flavor. This particular variety of olive is black with a touch of white, paraplegic, and with a definite dose of delicious. She also comes dressed up in a permanently classy tuxedo, sort of like a kitty version of Annie Lennox.
 Olive of the Varietal: Feistus Catus

Olive of the Varietal: Feistus Catus

Please officially meet Olive, a feisty little tuxedo kitty who was found at the age of five weeks and raised by fosters before finding her way to Tabby’s Place, where she now slides around the floors like a snazzy little broom, both lighting up rooms and shining surfaces with her fanny as she travels to greet people.
.
Olive doesn’t have any health problems, save for missing the use of her back legs, and Tabby’s Place feels that her Sweet Dreams of finding a permanent home could be realized with just the right adopter. She does wear a diaper since she can’t seem to, um, contain her urine, but don’t tease her about it because, as the saying goes, You Don’t Mess With A Missionary Cat.
 .
The right home for Olive would be one that would admire her for her spunk, a home that would be able to change her little diapers daily, a home that’s clean and tidy because she doesn’t like Walking On Broken Glass. Is that home yours? Wonderful! Call Tabby’s Place ASAP. Is it not? That’s ok, you can still Put A Little Love Into Your Heart and sponsor this amazing kitty while she searches for her loving forever home. Don’t leave her Waiting In Vain because the love that she’s got and is waiting to share? Money Can’t Buy It.
Don't Touch My Diaper! - Olive.

Bachelorette of the Week: Henrietta!

Dear Readers,
.
You know how as a kid, you might have had a scruffy little teddy bear? One whose fur was worn from all the hugs and kisses you bestowed upon him, and the jelly you spilled on him and left to dry, but then licked off later when you remembered it was there?
.
If you’ve ever wanted to relive that comfort but in the form of a cat, I have for you, the one, the only: Henrietta.
Henrietta: the coolest 12 year old around.

Now, Henrietta isn’t particularly set on going home with one person. You see, she has needs. Special needs. She has liver disease and is working hard to keep the ring worm at bay. There may even be a touch of lymphoma, but she hasn’t fully fessed up to it yet. She’s got a great attitude, though, despite her sad origins in a tightly-packed hoarder house. She loves people and other cats, and really, she’s quite happy where she is at Tabby’s Place.
.
My point here is this: Henrietta is looking for someone to help pay her Tabby’s Place rent. Well, she’s looking for sponsors. See her as the Artur Rubenstein of cats, seeking a patron to help her keep up her lifestyle while she tickles the ivories of all who come to pet her. Her medications are expensive, and so is her hairdresser. Do you have any idea what it costs these days to get that punk ombre done just right? Do you? Henrietta is particular about her hair and you’ll notice that some days it’s black, other’s it’s silver, and now it’s kind of white in places. Tabby’s Place even described her as a little “fiber optic Christmas Tree.” It’s all part of her lifestyle, and possibly her liver disease, and she needs someone to help her keep that going.
.
Henrietta has a lot of friends in her flat, and they all have numerous sponsors. But not Henrietta. For some reason, she has been overlooked by the sponsorship world. She needs to close this gap and I’m hoping that today, with the help of you, my dear readers, we can change that. Share her little teddy bear face far and wide and ask if anyone has a spare $14 a month to donate to help this lovely lady live the lifestyle she deserves. 
.
