Bachelorette of the Week: Tickles!

Dear Readers,

Today we have a tricky case and I must call upon your goodness to help get the word out about this lovely girl.

Meet Tickles.

Tickles, the one and only.

Tickles, the one and only.

You see, Tickles lost her human and was given away by their family. She didn’t take well to the new environment but, due to her lovely face and a bit of luck, she found a home right away. Sadly, she was returned to Save A Pet IL due to “inappropriate elimination.”  Man, if I got returned every time I thought outside the box… but I digress. This is about Tickles, who happens to use her box fastidiously while at the rescue.

The environment there, while quite lovely, tends to be stressful for her. She is front-paw declawed, which should be taken into consideration, since she may not be able to defend herself against more, shall we say, abrasive kitties. She also has stomatitis and hematuria and is on weekly SubQ fluids to help with her conditions. She spends a lot of time in her bed, with her little face tucked between her paws, wishing and wishing that when she looks up, she will be in a new, perfect, calm, and happy home.

Tickles is available for permanent foster from Save A Pet IL. That means they’ll take care of her medical bills if you provide the love. She can be outright adopted, too. The choice is yours.

What do you say? Are long, loving nights of cuddles with ten year old Tickles in your future?

Bachelorette of the Week: Ember!

Dear World,

Please meet Ember. Careful now, she’s hot and spicy and may very well burn her impression of love right into your soul. Not your carpet, though. She’s totally carpet and upholstery safe.

Look at that smolder!

Look at that smolder!

Ember’s story is a harrowing tale of the type no one wants to hear. She found a forever home once and was abandoned in an apartment with a bowl of Cheerios. I mean, I like Cheerios, too, but that’s just not right. She entered Tree House and found another home, but due to major health issues, her owner had to return her. And then, it happened again. In fact, it’s happened four times. And now, for the fifth time, Ember seeks a brazier of her own where she can light a fire in someone’s heart.

Given all this abandonment, Ember went from an easy-going, highly huggable cat to one that requires a bit of patience and understanding when approached. She’s not a huge fan of other cats, because they like to get in her space and she needs that space to practice her interpretive dance moves. In fact, she’s been given the gold medal in rhythmic gymnastics for her “mouse and ribbon” routine. Impressive.

There’s even a counselor I know at Tree House who happens to have a crush on Ember and made this little love video to her.

If you or someone you know would like to meet Ember, contact Tree House today! She’s there, smoldering.

Love,

Crepes.

Bachelorette of the Week: Mindy!

UPDATE: Mindy was adopted immediately after this was published. Was it us? Maybe, maybe not. But we’re so happy for her!!!! But that shouldn’t stop you from reading my clever write-up. – Crepes.

You guys!

Let me show you something:

Look.

Look.

This is the face of a patient waiter. Using your mind’s eye, imagine this face waiting for her breakfast next to your plate of eggs. Imagine her in the dark, waiting for you to pet her as you fall asleep. This face could wait all night into the next morning and still be pleased to have your love at the crack of sunrise. She’ll even bring you tea and cookies in bed, that’s how good of a waiter she is, in all respects.

This is Mindy, and she’s the longest waiting resident of Save a Pet Il.

Mindy has been waiting for years for her home. And yet, her indomitable spirit continues! Patiently, she waits for just the right person.

Could that person be… you?

Do you already have a cat? Perfect!

Do you have a dog? Great!

Do you have small children? NO? You win!

Mindy came from a hard life on the streets, so she needs a gentle hand and a quiet home. She loves to eat wet food, study people, and wait for things. What a gal.

She will bring you flowers and then wait for your to sniff them.

Let’s all help Mindy find the home she deserves.

Love,
