My Furry Family
Wilson came into my life in the year 2000. He spent the first 7 months in a cage at a pet store. He was reduced, reduced, reduced. I didn't want to purchase him and support pet stores that sell animals. Animals are not a commodity and too many people fall for that 'puppy in the window' syndrome and impulse buy without realizing the time, patience, commitment and costs that come with pet ownership. However, it broke my heart to see him living like that, so I brought him home. He is sweet, affectionate and a constant source of entertainment.
Sweet Kevin was found as a stray and lived in a shelter where he sat unclaimed for over a month. As shelters go, Kevin's time was up and he was scheduled to be euthanized. The Rescue I foster for, Speaking Of Dogs, pulled him out. Kevin wasn't meant to be my original foster dog. I was on my way to pick up another dog but when I saw Kevin I had this uncanny feeling I knew him. I instantly bonded with him and took him home. Two weeks later I adopted him. I truly bless every day that I have with Kevin. He is the most friendly dog to every creature that crosses his path. I adore him!
This little guy was found outside severely injured. The cause of his injuries were unknown but he needed his tail and an eye removed. He obviously went through some major trauma. Guess what? You'd never know it. Winks is the happiest go lucky cat you'd ever meet. He loves everyone and everything! He greets everyone he meets with affection and enthusiasm. He is a gem! Winks was rescued by Urban Cat Relief and adopted by me!
Atlas was homeless living in someones backyard. They built a shelter for him and tried to find his owners but no one came forward. That is how I adopted him. I was looking for a friend for Winks. Adopting Atlas was the best move I could have ever made! They are the best of friends! Atlas is a chatty cat and is Mr. Friendly to all the foster cats that come here. He loves everyone and is very affectionate. Atlas was clicker trained to give a 'high five'.
