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:

GARY

GARY

 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!

 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.

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?

Bachelor of the Week: Duff!

You guys!

Please meet Duff.

Duff.

Duff.

Don’t shake his hand, though! He might cream you in the face with a pie.

Now, I can’t say that with any real certainty, because I don’t have any photo evidence that he’s ever actually done that, but Save A Pet IL tells me that he’s like the clown of the FIV+ room, and we all know that clowns like to cream people in the faces with pie. And scare little children. And three-legged cats. I hate clowns.

And yet, there is a certain je ne sais quoi about Duff’s face that puts me right at ease. Here. Look at it:

Oh, maybe that wasn’t the best choice. Here, try this one:

Ahh. There.

Ahh. There.

Much better.  Anyway, Duff the Buff, as the ladies call him, is about 5 years old, give or take a year, and would be happy in a home with other cats. He is FIV+ and will require a bit of extra vet care, a healthy diet, and lots of love. You know, the same as all cats.

If you’d like to meet Duff, contact Save A Pet today!

"You, tail! I've got you now!" - Duff.

“You, tail! I’ve got you now!” – Duff.

Watch out, tail! Duff the Buff is going to get you!

 

 

Love,

Crepes.

PS. I’ll be posting more shortly, but if you haven’t already purchased tickets to the Los Angeles-based Kitty Bungalow Charm School for Wayward Cats’ CATbaret, you need to do it now. Now, I say!  MomFOD might be there… oh, who am I kidding? She already has a ticket and is going. So please come!
