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: 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.

Crepes.

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:
