This should have been Tommie’s birthday blog post. He would have been 18 years old soon. Tommie had the biggest heart of any cat I’ve ever met. But his big heart was no longer able to pump all the fluids we were giving him to treat kidney disease, and we had to say good-bye yesterday.
He had those wonderful polydactyl feet and 24 sharp claws that he never used in anger.
Tommie liked tummy rubs, chicken baby food, fresh catnip in the Spring. His purr motor had an instant “ON” switch.
Tommie loved life and he made our lives so much sweeter.
I’d like to thank his vets, very especially Dr. Patricia Doherty, and also Dr. Dave Santisi at A Cat’s Place in Norwalk CT for their kind and knowledgeable care.
Chip and his brother Dale are barely out of kittenhood. They are a playful affectionate pair, once they get to know you. They were found in a feral colony, but a volunteer lovingly fostered them and taught them the joys of being with people.
Dale has shorter hair and is a bit more reserved.
Longer haired Chip would love to sit on your lap!
They are looking for a forever home where they will always be together.
Tax season is coming and you might need experienced help with filing and keeping important papers weighed down.
Look no further!
Here’s six year old Garfunkle to the rescue.
Garfunkle’s brother is equally efficient. Guess what his name is?
Yes, it’s Simon.
This calm, gentle duo would make excellent stress reducing companions. They are waiting at PAWS.
Our Tommie (left) and Mickey Mouser (right) are in a small housing development in Spare Bedroom, CT. The harsh Winter weather has caused me to stay inside and play with cardboard.
Maybe I should have titled this post “Little Cabin Fever”.
Here is one of the two houses that were transported to PAWS.
Rose is inside, and Stormy is the voyeur, peeking in the window.
Stormy is a friendly four year old Torbi cat.
Rose is playful and young.
Stormy and Rose are available at PAWS.
What kind of name is Zeru?
You talking about me???
Yes, Zeru, we’re talking about you.
We’d never believe that you are eight years old! You have such a compact body and big friendly purr.
The wiktionary says zeru means “zero” in Corsican. But it means “blue” in the Basque language. I’m going with “blue” for her beautiful eyes.
Zeru is available at PAWS, and until the end of February the adoption fee is only $10 for adult cats!
