Bachelors of the Week: Zeke and Zeva!

UPDATE: Zeva is currently being placed in a foster home. Zeke is going to give it a go alone to see if it will bring him out of his sweet little shell.
Dear Readers,
Today, I would like to introduce you to a giant sleek kitty of love who comes complete with his very own tiny friend. As a team, they are known as “Zeke & Zeva,” but as individuals they are known as “Zeke” and “Zeva.” (Clever, I know.)

“Zeke & Zeva” as a team.

These two are looking for a home as a pair. They were adopted together as kittens and have been inseparable since then. Unfortunately, their first adopter no longer wanted the responsibility of having two fabulous cats bestow love and happiness upon him, so he returned them to Feral Fixers after four years. No pension. No stipend. I can only assume this family did not feel themselves worthy of the love that Zeke and Zeva were offering. That’s fine. Not everyone deserves a cat.
If you happen to like giant kitties, 21 pound Zeke is your man. Oh wait, you like little kitties? Then eight pound petit girl Zeva is for you. Can’t decide? Perfect! Adopt them both. (You have to; they come as a team.)
They are a bit on the shy side but have slowly been opening up in their foster home. All signs of trembling have passed, and these beautiful kitties can definitely blossom into confidence with the right home!  Zeke loves to have his butt scratched (and really, who doesn’t?) and Zeva chirps and purrs when you pet her. Not even one outside the box incident has been reported for these two or any other behaviors unfitting for an indoor home. They also have no health issues to speak of, but their special need is to be adopted together.
Are you ready to have the super team in your life? YOU ARE? Then contact Tammy at Feral Fixers today. Hurry!  Do it!

All cats are up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, fixed, and tested felv/fiv. If you are interested in adopting this bonded pair please email:  Screening questionnaire and contract apply.

PS. Do you remember Taco Cat? The black kitty with FIV I sponsored at Tree House in honor of the passing of my friend Cotton? Good news! Taco found his home! Congrats, Taco! We are so proud of you and of your adopters for opening their hearts to a kitty with special needs.

Bachelor of the Week: Ronald!

Please meet our very first Bachelor of 2016, the one, the only, Ronald!


Here are some things that Ronald would like you to know about him:
1) He prefers to be called Ronaldo
2) His mustache is on purpose
3) He plays the guitar after midnight
4) He loves to eat
Ronaldo loves to chat, usually in Castilian Spanish and occasionally in French. He also does English for the uni-lingual readers out there. He will often be heard shouting words of multi-lingual triumph as he runs off with whatever food he can find. And you know what he does with it? He takes it into the kitchen, makes it better with delicious herbs and spices, and then he eats it. While playing the guitar. His hobbies include climbing trees, furniture, and small mountains.
Everything about Ronaldo is a success, except for his kidneys, which are a slight failure, and require some extra attention. And, although his kidneys are dependent on extra care, Ronaldo himself is independent and full of life! He’s 9 years old, had a mildly concerning polyp in his ear, and loves attention, windows, and bird watching. His zest for life was renewed when Tree House pulled him out of the CACC and gave him another chance at life! He would be a wonderful fit to any home, as long as that home has subcutaneous fluids and space for his guitar.
This guy has it all! So come one, come all to meet Ronald and give him the forever home he deserves!

Bachelor of the Week: Gary!

You guys!

I decided to get off my behind and do one more Bachelor of the Week for 2015. And so, for our final fellow of the year, we have:



 This is Gary. Gary is handsome. Gary is ten. Gary is orange. Gary is a tabby. I think by now you know his name, so let’s talk about his other attributes, shall we? Gary, that handsome ten-year-old orange tabby up there, is a very curious and confident cat and yet he’s also independent with just a touch of the playful gene. He enjoys interactive toys, sipping water from the faucet, and snuggling deep down into blankets. Gary wouldn’t mind a home with older kids who really know how to appeal to his mischievous side. He  would also be totally ok being your one and only and yet he is open to sharing his relationship to you with other cats. He loves to chat, likes long strolls on the beach, and is an Aries. (That last part may or may not be a lie. Call Gary and ask him. Tell him Crepes sent you.)
If you’d like to meet Gary, contact Save A Pet IL. December is “New Leash on Life” days there and the adoption fee is waived for all pets that have been there a year or longer, which includes GARY! Also, Gary has a few tendencies to upper respiratory infections and GI Issues, but they’re controlled with diet. This qualifies him for permanent foster, which allows you to get medical support from Save  A Pet for the duration of Gary’s life.

If you think you can share your life and your leaky faucet with the fabulous Gary, (and really, who wouldn’t want to?) hurry up and get over there to adopt him. I SAID HURRY. The year’s almost over. You need to meet your cat quota. GO GO GO!

"I'm dreaming of a white faucet... just like the ones I used to know..." - Gary.

 PS. I know I have been scarce lately. I will be back in 2016 with all new laughs and bachelors. I think it’s time I get back to my silly self.

Bachelor of the Week: Moon Shadow!

Hello, World!

Today, I’d like to introduce you to the one, the only, Moon Shadow! :: insert applause and whisker twitches here::

Moon Shadow: The Invincible.

He doesn’t always dangle his paw, but when he does, he looks really, really cool.

Moon Shadow is a adult black cat who slinks about the house in the most elegant of ways. He also loves to regale the world with his wonderful breath. True story. See below. Haaaaaaaaa…..

Moon Shadow was adopted a few years ago but returned due to differences he had with the other resident cat. He likes head rubs, laser pointers, and sitting in your lap. He also enjoys taking insulin shots to control his rather minor case of the diabetes. Do you have space in your lap for Moon Shadow?

YOU DO????? (Yes, I’m looking at YOU.)

Then contact Save A Pet IL today and tell them you’re in! MS is available for adoption or permanent foster, where SavAPetIL will pay for his medical bills in case you are unable. What a deal!

Freshening the world with his breath.
