“This cat has roamed our neighborhood for weeks, is tame, and loves small dogs so she was obviously raised with one. I noticed a wound on her head, so brought her to TALGV.” That’s apparently my story, so I guess I have to stick with it! I will say that it’s SUCH a relief to have all the stitches our of my head (and doubly so since I no longer have to wear that dreaded “E-collar”!), so now I’m just a happy, affectionate 18-month-old gal who’d love to show you how grateful and loving I can be. I’m hopeful that the New Year will bring me a new (indoor only!) life and person to love!
I came to TALGV after the death of my dear person. With me I brought my happy, gentle spirit fostered by years spent with someone who loved me, my favorite toys, and one wish: That a wonderful someone will share their home and heart with me. I’m a Chinese Crested male, just 12 pounds, so I could fit on your lap if you like to cuddle, and walk nicely by your side. A very handsome fellow with a wavy grey and white coat, at 11 years of age, I come with FREE vet care for life and here’s hoping that applies for a long time! I was named for a rock star (Jon Bon Jovi) and I’m ready to give you my all when I sing “I Only Want to Be With You.”
This from my mom’s daughter: “Lee Lou is our good luck cat! She’s very playful, alone or with other cats. She loves the red pull strings from the top of dog food bags, and tosses and carries them around the house. She also loves walking up your chest and rubbing her face on your cheek. She loved Fuzzy and they usually slept together. She’s being released because my mother (a TALGV volunteer) died and I can’t keep all her cats. I would if I could because Lee Lou is a sweet, loving lady who’s incredibly fun to watch and interact with. She’ll need some TLC to become comfortable in her new forever home, but she’s worth it!”
Before coming here, I was one of fifteen dogs all living together in the same place! Different breeds, genders, ages—mainly small to medium small—and we all got along. Still do! We’re a sweet, loving bunch. But when our people moved and couldn’t take everyone with them, most of us came here—some of us shy, others very friendly, and each one hoping for the same thing: A new, comfy, loving home. We’re already experiencing new things; leashes and doggie doors were unknown to us, and we’ve not been around small children. I’m a 2-year-old gray and white Staffie mix female, 49 pounds, sometimes full of vim and vigor, and always happy to be with friends. Lively and fun, I have a quiet dream of being loved by you just for being me.
I can’t say it better than my mom: “Smokey is almost like a human baby! He loves everyone, sleeps in bed with us, is super friendly, loves being petted and cuddling, likes to talk, tells you when he’s hungry by following you around – and he absolutely adores his brother, Stash.” It was those dreaded “landlord issues” that caused us to lose our home, but we were one big happy family with three cats, three kids, and an American bulldog (so maybe things were a smidge too “active!”). I’m an awesome Russian Blue boy, about 2½ years old, and I’m just sitting here waiting for YOU to appear to take me home (maybe even with Stash)!
You know the saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” has been around for a long time for a reason, and when some people move and abandon their pets, they’re really relying on that happening! Well, happily I know I’ll prove it true, ‘cause I’m just as sweet and loving as can be and will make some lucky person the companion of their dreams. I’m a shorthaired grey tabby and white boy, about 3 years old, and handsome as all get-out to boot! Sometimes when pets have gone through “trauma,” they double down on niceness, so that’s what I’ve done. I’m here just waiting to show you what a joy it’ll be to have me around!
Captain Jack is a cute, smart, and energetic 16-pound, 8-year-old male Schnauzer mix that was found by owners. They think highly of him, but believe he would be better with someone who has more time for him. He is well behaved, housebroken, and leash trained. Captain Jack is okay with cats; other dogs and children are unknown. He is healthy, has been neutered, and is up to date with rabies shot. He is friendly, loving and playful. There is no adoption fee.
If you will welcome this special boy into a loving home as part of your family, please call Joyce between 8 AM and 8 PM at 520-223-6729.
