Phoebe and Zoe-Bob
Mindy and Maggie

Some of the pairs at the Shelter came in together. Some found comfort in new friends that they met at PAWS.
“Ain’t it good to know that you’ve got a friend
When people can be so cold
They’ll hurt you, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh, but don’t you let them…
You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I’ll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there
You’ve got a friend.”
The dogs love playtime in the shelter‘s fenced yard- except on rainy days.
Meanwhile, the cats were happy to be dry and snug in their beds. Here is Maine Coon mix Phoebe and her constant companion Zoe-Bob.
Our returned old friends, Zoe-Bob and Phoebe, are settling back into life at the shelter. I hope their stay will be brief.
That’s Phoebe on the left and Bobbi on the right photographed in 2006.
They’re back at the shelter again.
Phoebe is now eleven and Bobbi (renamed Zoe-Bob) is eight.
The good news is that they’re safe, and they will never be separated.
Gizmo is the orange cat in the background, Angel is a Maine Coon mix, and Roxy in the foreground is a gray tabby.
Even in sleep they find comfort in the touch of a friend.
See how Gizmo has his foot on Angel’s back?
And if you look at Roxy’s tummy you will see Angel’s paw hugging her.
Of course we want them to have homes. But meanwhile, shelter life is pretty sweet.
These two shy girls came to the shelter separately, but I sure hope they leave together.
This pretty stray cat was brought in to the shelter recently, ending her rough time on the street. Angel is shy but friendly, and must have had a family that loved her at some point. I wish we knew her story.
