Meet Bubbie!

Meet Bubbie!

Have you guys heard of this new trend called Cat Memes? Apparently, they’re all the rage on the Interwebs. After seeing a few, I decided I was the inspiration for cat memes! You see, I love being pet, until I don’t like being pet anymore! Apparently, this kind of behavior is super funny to you humans. Well, that’s just me, Bubbie, being Bubbie!

When I was younger and looking for a family, I tried out a store cage environment but really didn’t like it. It was quite lonely as I waited for a forever family that never came. After that, I ended up with the nice folks at PawsCo and now I am in a loving foster home and demanding shredded cheese on the regular.

My humans say I am very friendly, cheese-motivated, string-motivated, and after all that motivation, I am sleep-motivated. I am free to roam the house, and to be honest, with all that free time, I just can’t help but nap! I should also note that I am superbly nonchalant with other cats in the house and we get along just fine. (I secretly like the companionship.)

I am definitely on the adoption market and would be so happy to meet you and find out if you think I would be the right gentleman for your home. I promise to keep you company in the kitchen, nap by your side to keep you warm, rub up against your legs, and provide you with an abundance of inspiration for your venture into cat memes!

Thanks for considering me as an addition to your family. You can apply to adopt me or email my friends at PawsCo to learn more!

PawsCo Paper! Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Lobo the Dog is in search of a place to call home! Grab your PawsCo Paper here!

Hey folks of all ages! I’m Lobo, and I’m the head journalist for the PawsCo Paper. As a dedicated writer, I am in a constant search for the next breaking news story. Today it just so happens to be about me. The headline isn’t an incredibly catchy one…I’m looking for my forever home! And I’d love to give you all the important facts about why I will be such an amazing companion for you.

I’d like to report that I am such a sweet guy, and am very affectionate and loving. I love being around people; they like to do a lot of interesting and notable things like giving me ear scratches and belly rubs. I do need a home where my human is around a lot of the time as I’m still learning to be confident when left home alone. But every professional writer needs a great editor and friend to help steer their vision in the right direction with some welcomed advice, right? I’m making progress with my confidence with this but a patient, understanding human companion who can help me with my confidence building will be very helpful for me!

Being a passionate journalist requires a lot of commitment and social cues. And I show these qualities in my ability to get along great with other dog journalist friends! I have a blast playing with the other dogs in my foster home and I’d love to have a dog companion in my forever home as well! I haven’t met any cats yet so I don’t know if I’d do well with cat friends. I also can be a tad uncomfortable with the interview skills of small children so I’d do best in a home with adult companions or older kiddos (over 10yrs old would be best for me!)

BREAKING NEWS: Lobo the Dog received highest marks for Best Personality and Cutest Dog category! (These facts are not made up. They are provided by Lobo himself.)

Well, what do you say? Will you become the best story that has ever graced the front page of the PawsCo Paper by adopting me?

Email your story to my friends at PawsCo or fill out an adoption application on the PawsCo website to become the next great headline for Lobo the Dog, Journalist Extraordinaire!

Meet Milkshake!

Meet Milkshake!

Seal Point Snowshoe
Female
9 months old
6 lbs. (and growing!)

Hi there! What do you get when you mix a curious love bug of a kitten with a pinch of shyness but with a generous helping of affection and sweetness? I’ll tell you what you get… you get me! Milkshake the cat!

I am so thankful to be in my loving foster home and I just can’t wait to find a forever family to give all my love and sweetness to! I would be a great addition to a loving and patient home (I take a bit of time to completely warm up to a new person but once I do, I’m just a happy, goofy kitten!) I also just adore other cat friends! My cat buddy in my foster home makes me so comfortable and happy and I learn a lot just by following him around. I think I’d do so well in a home with another cat as I seem to lean on a cat friend for confidence in a new environment. There is dog in the house with us, and he’s pretty cool. I try to pretend he’s just a bigger kitty. I’m not sure how he feels about that, but we getting along great, and that’s all that matters.

I haven’t met any small humans yet. I hear the really young ones make noises and don’t give you much notice though, so I think I would like my forever home to be with another kitty or maybe some quiet humans. It’s just really nice to hang out with kindred spirits, you know?

I feel like I’ve come such a long way since my foster family took me in. I’m healthy and growing, I’ve learned the indoor potty perfectly, and I love those scratchy things to give my claws a good workout. Now all I need is to find my forever home to enjoy every bit of life with.

So…are you ready for tons of sweetness in your life? Then come and meet me! Milkshake the cat! You can email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org to set up a visit, and also fill out the application right here: https://pawsco.org/adopt/catadoptionapplication/.

All About Miss Kitty

All About Miss Kitty

By Donna Flowers

Prep the tissues for a happy ending to a sad story.

Miss Kitty is a fluffy 14-year-old ball of love and affection that was unceremoniously dumped at a shelter when her owner died. Afraid of where she was, missing her warm home and companions and suffering from extreme dental issues, Miss Kitty was quickly losing weight and her will to live.

But cats have nine lives, right?

When we first met Miss Kitty, her fur was matted and dirty, she was a bag of bones and she had a definite need to be held. All the time. By everybody and anybody. She wanted to be in your lap. If not there, then in your arms. And definitely right beside you in bed. It was borderline annoying!  But she is so easy to love that we obliged and she has since regained her confidence, as well as her beautiful fur coat, and has settled into a nice routine of snoozing on her own before seeking out a lap.

Oh, and eating! PawsCo addressed all of Miss Kitty’s dental issues and she is slowly, but surely, regaining her girlish figure. With only two teeth to her name, however, soft food is certainly best (though she has been seen sneaking the dog’s kibble!)

She currently lives with another foster cat and a young dog and they all tolerate each other just fine and share everything.

Except laps.

Thumper’s Story

Thumper’s Story

By Donna Flowers, Thumper’s foster mom

Thumper. What a cat!

I have had the pleasure of fostering this 14-year-old boy for just over a month now and I really must say that he is a delight.  His backstory is a little fuzzy – he was turned in as a stray, but as a very sweet and declawed cat, he must have been a beloved house cat at one time and the quickness at which he settled in confirms it.

Thumper is like all the cats you’ve ever known all rolled into one handsome ball. He is mellow most of the time, but likes to play sometimes as well. He is just as happy to lie in the window as he is to lounge on your lap, but is equally content to ignore you altogether for a few hours at a time. He has a very curious personality – always wanting to check out the closets and watch out the windows, but has zero interest in dogs!  He gets along well with my other foster cat, however; they mostly ignore each other despite sharing everything.

He loves to eat and is very insistent that you should share whatever it is you are eating from whatever bag you just opened. He also loves to be loved when he wants to be loved. He will follow you around the house, beg for treats, sleep on your feet, purr when you hold him…and then he will steal away for his, “Me Time.”

As an older (and wiser!) cat, he has developed a bit of arthritis that causes him to look a little drunk when he walks, but with a daily dose of his arthritis medicine (which he likes!), he gets around just fine.

I think I would sum Thumper up best as a Low-Maintenance Best Friend; one who is warm, loving, entertaining, and appreciative, but doesn’t need you to call him all the time. 🙂
