UPDATE: Frumpy cat has left the building!

by Joseph Romero on July 28, 2016

Thank you for visiting 🙂 I have already found a foster home!

Name: Frumpy Cat
Age: 3 years old
Breed: Domestic short hair
Foster Period: 3 weeks

If ever a name suited a cat, this is it! This pile of excitement is Frumpy Cat. Why does a social butterfly like this need a foster home??? We are trying to determine the cause of his over grooming. And the best place to do that is in the low stress environment of a foster home. His grooming is so intense that he’s actually developing a sore on his side and is now forced to wear the cone of shame. 🙁 By getting into foster, we are hoping to turn that frown upside down. 🙂

Despite his name, he’s actually a very sweet cat, that would love nothing more than to spend the next 3 weeks by your side. So if you’ve got the time… Please consider bringing him into your home for a low stress vacation.

Thanks!

UPDATE: Already placed

Thank you for visiting 🙂 I have already found a foster home!

Name: Vienna
Age: 7 month
Breed: Terrier
Foster Period: 10 days

Let’s see who we have for today… It’s Vienna. I’m going to assume that she’s named after the capital of Austria rather than those yucky sausages in a can. Either way, this little beauty is looking for a foster home for the next 10 days while she is being treated for bronchitis. Yep, dogs can get bronchitis too. While bronchitis itself isn’t contagious, the underlying cause may be. So, what’s that mean for you… I’d recommend that you do not have a dog or if you do, you can keep them separated.

Treatment for this little 14 pound cutie is extremely simple. She gets an oral medication twice a day for 10 days. Yep, it’s going to take a whopping 10 seconds both morning and evening to get this little one on the road to recovery. 🙂 Well, that and a little love. We’ll supply the medication and let you supply the love.

You know the drill… Please let us know if you’d like to take this cute pup into your home for the next 10 days.
