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.
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!
Pie checking out the world. Or pooping. Not sure which.
Pie in a hole.
Apple Pie and his buddy “A La Mode” (I don’t actually know who that is.)
It’s been a slice!
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!!!!
World, Meet Yellow Tail.
Yellow Tail posing.
This handsome bachelor came from some rough circumstances under a dumpster at a restaurant. He maintains that he was trying to order some sushi for dinner but it started raining and he needed a dry spot to wait for his rolls. We’ll let him have that story.
Yellow Tail loves to snuggle with adults (sorry, kids), long walks on your carpeted hallways, and intimate sashimi dinners, hold the rice. He’s also really into photography, but of a more internal kind. In fact, he has an entire series of portraits via ultrasound of his heart that he’s just waiting for a room of his own to frame and hang. He plans to continue his hobby in his new home, so adopters should be aware that he’ll need occasional rides to his doctor for his ultrasonic modeling sessions. You see, Yellow Tail’s heart has a few parts that are just a bit bigger than others, which requires a doctor’s monitoring but also allows for some really artistic photographic angles. Truly stunning.
Yellow Tail wouldn’t mind another cat in the house but very likely he’d prefer to be your one and only. He’ll chat with you all night long and it only requires that you snap your fingers and say “Yellow Tail,” and he will appear like the miracle that he is.
If you would like to meet Yellow Tail, contact Tree House Humane Society
today! Hurry. He’s got sushi rolls to serve you and that stuff doesn’t keep.
“Hurry. My spicy tuna rolls are wilting.” – Yellow Tail
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!
“Echa un vistazo de mi bigote.” – Ronaldo.
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.
Gary, deeply contemplating the snuggle factor of this blanket/basket combo.
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.
