Bachelorette of the Week: Tabitha!

You Guys!

I know you’re excited that I’m about to announce this week’s Bachelorette, but please hold your applause because she might run away. Instead, burst with joy inwardly. Also, whisper. And, um, leave the kids at home.

May I gently present to you… TABITHA!

HURRAY! Shhhh...

HURRAY! Shhhh…

::insert silent screams of elation here:::

Tabitha grew up in an alley, but not a cool Alley like the kids in Chicago here visit to buy leather jackets. It was a mean alley, filled with garbage cans and things kitties don’t want on their fur. At six months of age, this lovely lady was rescued, but she remains steadfast in her survival skills. She loves to be petted, but gently, with a soothing voice.

HOWEVER: She LOVES other cats!  Do you have a kitty who you feel needs a companion? Then Tabitha is your lady! Think about it: a bit of wet food, you, Tabitha, a gentle CD of relaxing music, and your other kitty, all enjoying an evening of petting (slowly) and love (quietly.)

What do you think? Does she fit your needs? Great! Then call Save a Pet IL today and get this senior lady into your home ASAP, but slowly. Very slowly.

Tabitha feels NOTHING for flowers. Nothing.

She can see you...but she doesn't want to hear you, Capisce?

Bachelor of the Week: Paddy Cake

Ladies and gentleman! May I present the baker’s man of folkloric fame, the one, the only:


::insert wild applause here…no seriously. Do it. Hands clapping together is totally his thing.::

He dressed up just for you.

This little fellow was, once upon a time, living with a family. Unfortunately, that family lost their home and they did the best thing they knew how to do: send their tiny baking star to Save A Pet IL, where they knew he would be cared for without fail, and where they would provide him with all the things he needs to follow his passion: making biscuits.

Paddy Cake, though a bit shy about his talents, will definitely come out to see you if he knows that you’re interested in his biscuits. He also bakes cakes and will do so as fast as he can if he thinks you’re hungry. He’s excellent for birthdays, as well, and will write whatever letter you want on top of your cake. Also, he has FIV, but rest assured, he always wears rubber gloves when handling your cakes.

Paddy Cake works well with other bakers (cats) and  is ready when you are! Come meet him at Save A Pet IL and bring him into your home!

Bachelor of the Week: Paesan!

Oh, you guys. Look at this.



This is Paesan and he has a face that makes you go “awww.” Am I right? He also has FIV. And, um, stomatitis. And asthma. Oh, and beautiful orange fur! Wouldn’t you love to pet his wonderful, luscious coat? I’ll bet you would! You could even stroke it as you held his tiny little asthma mask to his face. He’s so high tech.

Paesan doesn’t mind other kitties and stays out of their way. He loves to make faces at you, with or without his asthma mask on, and enjoys being petted, but not TOO much. That last part is key. Also, I’ve heard tell he loves to eat stew. I’m not sure where I heard that, but I’m sure it’s true.

Anyway, as I describe him to you, I get the feeling myself that he’s quite an enigma, really. So many likes, so many dislikes, so many special needs. Do you want to be the one to figure this little guy out? Are you afraid that he’s going to break your heart or, perhaps, your pocket book?

Never fear on the first one; if he commits to you, it’s for life. And as far as the funds go for managing his health care, Save A Pet IL is willing to allow him as a permanent foster and will cover medical bills for his stomatitis and asthma. So, problem solved!

If you’d like to meet him, contact Save A Pet IL to get more information on this radiant fellow.

And in case you weren’t already convinced by the first photo:
