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.

Bachelor of the Week: Midnight Saturn!

You guys!

Perhaps you’ve noticed thatI haven’t been around much recently. I’m not saying why, I’m just saying that I’ve noticed, too. But I’m here now to continue a trend in inter-galactic cats. Today, I bring you Midnight Saturn!

Midnight Saturn3

There is more here than meets the eye.

Now, looking carefully at that photo, you may think that he is, in fact, made entirely of dark matter. This is not the case, for, if you look closely you can see some stardust in his ears and some wonderful green star birthing grounds right there in the middle.

Midnight Saturn left his galaxy when his guardian passed away into another existence. While there, he’d been co-mingling with twenty-two other galaxies (cats) and didn’t get a lot of personal attention. He prefers his petting and loving to happen when you’re on the same level such as when you’re both on the floor, or both at eye-level, or both somewhere in the third ring of Saturn.

He does well with other cats. In fact, he has one that he crashed into recently and they seem to have melded into an irregular galaxy pattern.

There aren’t any particular special health needs about this boy except that he’s black, which makes him harder to adopt, and that he also was already adopted and returned because he didn’t like to get inside his carrier for trips to the vet. I won’t even touch that one, but I’m sure a few readers may have some comments about that reason for surrender.

If you’d like to meet Midnight Saturn and bring him into your world, contact Save A Pet IL today. Hurry!  Before he drifts away to distant reaches of the universe! (Also, Roma could use a solid home, too.)

Bachelor of the Week: Paesan!

Oh, you guys. Look at this.

LOOK.

LOOK.

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:

Bachelor of the Week: Thatcher!

You Guys!

Recently, I had an FeLV kitty on here named Abbott.  Well, guess what? Nevermind, I’ll tell you. He’s been adopted!!  This is such wonderful news for an FeLV kitty that I thought I’d celebrate by showing you another FeLV kitty in the hopes that it will help him get adopted, too!

Crepes, you might say, aren’t you asking for a lot? Yes, of course, but I’ve learned that if you don’t ask, you don’t get. So on that note, World, meet Thatcher!

Peek a boo!

Peek a boo!

Thatcher is merely a kitten, but during his short time on earth, he picked up the FeLV, which means he has Feline Leukemia. Cats can live with it for many years, but unlike FIV, which is NOT transmissible to other cats via normal contact and grooming, FeLV IS transmissible to other cats via mutual grooming and sharing of fluids. Does this mean you cannot adopt Thatcher? Sadly, it rules you out for taking home this bundle of love if you already have FeLV negative cats. But, you’re still eligible if:

  • you have other FeLV cats
  • you have a dog or dogs
  • you have no other pets

I’m pretty sure that means that at least 50% of the population still has room for Thatcher to come in and fill their homes with LoVE as well as just a touch of FeLV.

Thatcher loves other cats (but only from afar unless they too have FeLV), and he would do great in a home with children or kitty-friendly dogs. He’s a healer by nature and seeks out those who could use a little pick-me-up. And, best of all, he has that little smudge on his nose that you’ll always want to rub off but can’t so you’ll just end up petting him and falling asleep. Great, right?

To meet Thatcher, contact Save A Pet IL. They’ll give you all his details and probably even let you pet him. And rub his nose.

"Do you have a headache? I'll take that away." Thatcher.

“Do you have a headache? I’ll take that away.” Thatcher.
