Miss Chevon Found Her Forever Home~!

Chevon is a 7 year old, very overweight girl who came to us way back at the end of March.  She was not happy, did NOT get along with any of the other kitties & rarely left her cage when volunteers came in to care for the kitties.  She would growl & grumble at the other kitties & volunteers.  We were all getting concerned that she would have a very hard time finding her forever home.  Not only was she an older kitty, but she was very overweight & her attitude was not exactly friendly.   None of which made her a prime candidate for adoption.

After a couple of months, she finally began to come out of her cage more & more.  She quit growling at the other kitties (except for Benji, but that’s another post).  When we got some kittens in for an adoption event in June, those that weren’t adopted over the weekend stayed with us. She began to watch them play from a perch on the cat tree.  Then, miracle of miracles – she began interacting with them! 

The Wednesday morning volunteer – Sheri – called me one day to tell me she watched Freckles (a 5 month old kitten) go into her cage & start eating her food (none of us can figure out why, but all the kitties try to eat her diet food – really?).  Sheri held her breath waiting for Chevon to flip out & chase him out of her cage.  But she didn’t.  She licked him on top of his head instead! 

It was truly a turning point for Chevon.  Every time, almost, a volunteer came in to let the kitties out to play, Chevon would join them.  We all were so happy & relieved to see her finally become the sweet kitty we knew she could be.  She would sit on the second shelf of the cat tree (amazing she could jump that far!) & watch the kittens play.  Sometimes, she would play with them or by herself – which she had never done before.  She began letting some of the volunteers brush her & clean her in places she couldn’t reach because of her size.

Chevon has finally found her forever home with one of our sweet volunteers – Mindy! YAY! 

Mindy took her home Friday evening to be a companion to Lily, who she adopted from TLC at our location about 5-6 months ago.  Mindy’s family recently lost their 15 yr. old FIV+ kitty & now Lily ( AKA Precious) is all alone.  She sent pictures of “The Queen” – LOL~!

SO HAPPY FOR CHEVON!!

Enjoy your new forever home sweet chubby girl!

ALL OUR LOVE GOES WITH YOU!

This Black & White Beauty is CHEVON!

Chevon - 7 Yr. Old Female

Chevon – 7 Yr. Old Female

Chevon is another poor baby who was surrendered by her previous owner after living in the only home she had ever known for almost 7 yrs.  😦  She needs a Purr-Parent who can be her personal “red dot” trainer so she can shed a few unhealthy pounds!  Chevon is a quiet, sweet girl who has just gotten too used to laying around & sleeping all day.  Any girl will put on the pounds that way!

Chevon would be a good fit for any household.  Maybe one with a kitten or younger kitty that will keep her busy!

Riddick’s Forever Home?

Riddick went home with his new Purr-parents last Sunday.  Such a sweet couple!  They have an only kitty named Clarence & he’s about 4 yrs. old.  He’s a tabby mix & seems to want a playmate.  They dog-sit a golden retriever pretty regularly & he’s always trying to get him to play.  The golden wants nothing to do with him.  So they decided maybe another cat or kitten would be just the thing for Clarence.

Tish called me today to let me know that Riddick’s cough seems to be more than a hairball issue.  Possibly a URI or something along those lines.  I’ve sent an e-mail to the shelter manager & the vet to schedule a time for her to bring him in for an exam & treatment.  Other than that, he is doing great!  Just coughing a few times a day.

Tish & Donny are completely in love with Riddick, who’s new name is “Franklin”.  He is all over the place – helping to make sandwiches, digging in the trashcan for goodies, laying on their feet, following them all over the house & all the things that kittens do!  He is loving his new home!  However, Clarence isn’t taking the new addition well at all.

Riddick/Franklin is kept in a separate room unless Clarence is relegated to another part of the house, as is necessary when introducing a new kitty to a household.  But Clarence has been growling & acting aggressively when he senses Franklin.

They are heartbroken.  But still hoping that with a little more time, Clarence will come around. They are so in love with Franklin!!

Tish asked me how I knew I had an “only kitty”.  She had mentioned to me before that she was afraid Clarence might need to be the only cat in their household. I told her it was a combination of knowing Lilly’s personality (she was a barn kitty rescue at 6 weeks & partly feral) & observing her reaction to other cats/dogs.  My Lilly Fae is without a doubt  an “only kitty”.  I know her all too well and have seen first-hand how she reacts to strange cats or dogs who roam into our yard.  She bristles up & growls like a mountain lion.

For example, one time, when Lilly was on our deck & another cat was down in the yard,  I was trying to get her back inside & she literally attacked me – she leaped onto my leg –  claws digging in, like I was the trespasser.  To bring another cat into our household would be a CATastrophy.

Even when I bring home laundry from the cat room or don’t change my clothes immediately after visiting the cat room, she will sniff, growl & bristle up.  It’s pretty apparent to me that there is no way I could introduce another kitty as long as Lilly rules.  So you see what I’m saying…

I hope it works out – for Franklin as well as for Tish & Donny.  It would be so heartbreaking for all of them if it doesn’t…But some kitties are meant to be “only kitties”.

Meet Riddick!

Here’s Riddick! He is 7 months old and FULL of energy!

Meet Sweet Miss Mary!

This sweet little girl has already been through so much in her short life!  Miss Mary is approximately 1- 1/2 years old and very recently had a litter of kittens.  Apparently, her previous “owner” couldn’t be bothered to get her spayed before she got pregnant.  So when she did have her litter, they boxed Miss Mary and her babies up in a cardboard box and left them outside of a vet’s clinic in the cold.  Who knows how long they were sitting outside before being discovered!

Luckily, she and her babies were rescued before succumbing to the extreme temperatures.  Our area has had single digit cold & wind chills below zero for almost two months straight.

Miss Mary & her kittens were fostered by volunteers from Operation PETS until her kittens were weaned.  Operation PETS turned them over to Ten Lives Club so they could all find their forever homes.

Miss Mary came to our location on Monday along with Gus & Andy.  She is a sweet, beautiful black and white domestic short hair kitty.

Normally, her adoption fee would be $75, but during the month of February we are running a Valentine Adoption Special so her adoption fee is only $14 through the end of this month!

Miss Mary has been spayed, has all of her vaccinations up to date and tested negative for FeLeuk & FIV.  PLUS, we offer a free veterinarian visit certificate with adoption!  There are many vets on the affiliated vets list all over Buffalo & the surrounding suburbs – your vet is probably on the list.

Stop in & visit Miss Mary at Pet Supplies “Plus” in East Amherst.
We are located at 9630 Transit Road, E. Amherst, NY.

Record Breaking Week For Adoptions!!

My head is spinning!  I’m so HAPPY!! This has been the best week EVER for adoptions at our location!  Five kitties found their forever homes this week!  Four adoptions happened on the same day (different days, but 2 days this week there were 2 adoptions on the same day)!  How often does that happen?  In my experience as a TLC Store Coordinator, NEVER!  But I’m over the moon happy that it did.

On Monday, I took Frappe for a home visit/adoption which turned out to be his forever home.  He is with the same sweet man that adopted Reed back in November. I called to check in a couple of days later & Paul told me that Frappe has made himself right at home & is happy as ever!  Reed is still getting used to the idea of having a “catmate” in HIS house, but since he has been an only kitty for a few months that’s to be expected.  Reed will come around!  And both of them have Paul’s undivided attention & love!

On Friday morning, little Eve – who is Adam’s sister – was adopted by the same sweet lady who adopted her brother Adam in early January.  Ann took Eve home to be reunited with her brother & another playmate (who also happens to be black) Arizona who is 2.  Adam AKA Riley has made himself right at home since Ann brought him home in January.  He sleeps across her neck like a little black furr necklace purring away all night long.  Adam AKA Riley & Arizona play all day long & I’m certain Eve will adjust to her new forever home in no time!  Mary – who had fostered both Adam & Eve – said Eve really needed a playmate because her other kitties wouldn’t play with her.  A 6 month old kitten needs playmates!  Now Eve will have TWO – one of which is her brother!

Friday afternoon, I got a call from a lady who had come all the way from Orchard Park to visit Skye but saw Carley & fell in love with her on the spot.  Carley found her forever home & PurrMom Karina yesterday afternoon!  The minute I opened her cage to visit with Karina, she ran straight to the chair where her purse was sitting & laid right next to it.  It was obvious she had chosen her Purrson!  She scooped her up to hold & pet her – while Carley was purring away the entire time.

This morning, volunteer Amy – who was covering the AM shift today – called to tell me there was a woman who wanted to adopt both Crystal AND Tiger together!  I was stunned – but HAPPY!  I rushed to the store to meet her and she was literally in tears because she knew Crystal & Tiger were meant to be with her & in their forever home together.  She had lost her only kitty back in November and was still grieving his loss until she saw posts and pictures of the kitties on our Facebook page & blog.  She realized she was finally ready to open her heart to another kitty (or kitties!).  When she saw Crystal & Tiger playing together, she knew she had found her new furbabies!
