Featured Cat of the Month
Pippen, or Pip, is a very sweet 10-year-old lady with lots of love to give. She is a beautiful silky tuxedo with cute face markings, and has the prettiest green-blue eyes. She loves people and will sit on your lap, sleep under the covers with you in the winter (save on heat!), or just seek your company by sitting near you, preferably touching a foot or leg.
When you walk into the room, Pip greets you and chats with you for a little, and then settles down close by. While you pay attention to her, she purrs non-stop. She is a calm, relaxed cat, but enjoys some play time as well. Her favorite toy is a string toy and she loves to chase it around or catch it from the air.
Pippen is back with us after being adopted five months ago. She’s hoping for another chance at a forever home. Her adopter was in tears when she brought her back, but Pippen was having litter box problems and we were unable to solve them. Pippen had good litter box manners while in foster care. But in her new home, she regularly peed just outside of the box no matter what we, or the adopter, tried. We just can’t figure out the reason for her departure from good habits. But, as we are dedicated to finding a forever home for every pet in our care, Pippen will be fostered by us until she finds her forever home, and forever litter box.
We recommend that Pippen be an only cat but will consider applicants with a low-key resident cat. And ask that a slow, proper introduction take place. We do not have a foster-to-adopt program, and normally do not make this type of arrangement, but in Pippen’s case we will. If you would like to add Pippen to your home, but want to make sure she’s comfortable with the litter box set up in your home, let’s give it a shot. Complete a foster or adoption application today.

She is already spayed, FIV/FeLV tested negative, Avid micro-chipped, de-wormed and has all necessary shots. She is ready to go to a loving home. Adoption fee is $100.00. If you have any questions, please EMAIL US.

THE MOVEMENT TO BURY PETS ALONGSIDE PEOPLE
The desire to be buried with a pet is nothing new. Eric Greene, a cultural anthropologist and the founder of the Green Pet-Burial Society, first realized that humans could be buried alongside their animal companions when he learned about a Natufian burial site from 10,000 BCE in what is now northern Israel. “In it lay the skeleton of a woman on her side and with a puppy’s skeleton by her head, her hand gracefully resting atop his head,” Greene remembers.
