Bachelorette of the Week: Bubbles

World,

Meet Bubbles.

::Cue the face::

The Face.

The Face.

Do you remember that one joke that goes “Wanna hear a dirty joke? Timmy took a bath. Wanna hear a clean joke? The bath had bubbles.  Wanna hear a dirty joke? Bubbles was the girl next door.”

Well, this Bubbles probably wouldn’t want to have a bath with any human person because, guess what, she’s extremely shy. As such, we are showcasing her here as the face of the Tabby’s Place socialization program (it doesn’t actually have one particular face but, if it did, we feel this one would be a good choice), where they insist that kitties learn to accept the loving touch of people. So far, Bubbles is responding and has made progress, but she’s still a little hesitant to jump into that tub with Timmy. She doesn’t mind bathing with her feline suite mates, though, and if your house happens to have other kitty companions in it, Bubbles would be delighted.

You see, Bubbles was initially bullied by cats in her colony, so she was taken in by the Tabby’s Place TNR program and given a loving place to float about with the sun shining on her glistening fur. Gosh, isn’t Tabby’s Place great? I love them. Anyway, Bubbles was never socialized to people during her early years, so she’s having a little trouble trusting. As such, Bubbles needs a home without small children and loud noises, and preferably with an open tub that currently contains no one. She might invite Timmy in later. Baby steps.

Bubbles is three years old, cross-eyed, and otherwise healthy. If you’d like to meet her, contact Tabby’s Place today! If you’d like to help support her tuition in the socialization program, you can learn more here!

Bachelorette of the Week: Patches!

Update: It sounds like Patches will be permanently cared for by her foster family! But she still needs some sponsors to help. Read on!

Dear world,

Earlier this week, I brought you a film about Senior pets.  Today, I bring you a senior named Patches.

Patches

Patches

This dear girl spent 19 (that’s right) years in a home that was suddenly no longer able to keep her. Although I don’t have the reasons behind it, my heart can only rest believing that it was because her human could no longer care for herself or some other equally justifiable reason for letting this dear girl go at such a golden age.

Patches has a touch of arthritis and is on thyroid medications. She’s also got the occasional upset tummy, but she’s also old enough to vote, so that counts for something. Currently, Patches is being cared for by a generous, loving foster family with the support of Tabby’s Place in Ringoes, New Jersey, and it sounds like she may be able to stay. Patches is very optimistic.

If you think you could give a bit of extra money and you’d like to help support her financially, you may do so here. She could use a little help with her medical bills. She’s on a fixed income at this point and Caticare isn’t really covering it.

Let’s all send purrs of comfort to Patches. Even though her little body is still doing well, we’re sure her heart could use a little healing.

"Is that my new home coming to get me?" - Patches.

“Is that my new home coming to get me?” – Patches.

Patches sure loves boxes.

Patches sure loves boxes.

Love,

Crepes.

Bachelorette of the Week: Adelaide!

Come one, come all to the meeting of Adelaide!

The one, the only: Adelaide.

The one, the only: Adelaide.

Ms. Adelaide Rosenburg is a bit of everything: a bit of tortie, a bit of tabby, a bit of calico. She’s what’s known as a torbie, a true lady of many cultures. Adelaide joined the team at Tabby’s Place just this summer after wandering for a bit in the outside world. Now in her senior years, Adelaide is looking to settle down in a home with a lot of cats to love and people to snuggle. Her attitude is one of joy and positivity, and so is her FIV status. But she doesn’t care, because she’s just a happy, happy girl.

Some might think that Addy, as she’s called by her friends, should have a lot to complain about, but Addy doesn’t think so, and that’s what really matters. She has had some problems with inflammation that went untreated during her years outside, and that caused her a severe case of stomatitis, which she’s currently conversing with politely. I say “conversing” rather than “struggling” because it seems that Addy’s attitude doesn’t allow her to be rude to anything, even a painful condition that required the removal of most of her teeth.

If you would like to meet this little five-pound bundle of joy, contact Tabby’s Place today. If you’d like to donate to her care, you can do so here and be certain of the fact that she’s dancing to a soft little tune in her head, and making biscuits for you, her sponsor. She never runs out of biscuits. She’s just great like that.

I have no teeth? That's ok, I didn't need them anyway.

“I have no teeth? That’s ok. I don’t need teeth to smile.” – Addy.

"Oh, is that a spot on your lap? Can I make biscuits there?" - Addy.

“Oh, is that a spot on your lap? Can I make biscuits there?” – Addy.
