Spooky and Stormy! Spooky is the black cat. I think!

Meet Spooky and Stormy, a bewitching pair of older sisters who suddenly found themselves homeless when their person passed away. At twelve years of age, these ladies still have plenty of life left in them – life they’d like to spend with you! And each other!

Here’s what Heartland SPCA (formerly Animal Haven, I think? that’s where we adopted O-Ren!) has to say about Spooky and Stormy:



Domestic Short Hair Mix: An adoptable cat in Merriam, KS
Medium • Senior • Male

Doesn’t the name Spooky tell you so much about me? Well, maybe not so much. I am actually sweet, affectionate, dependable and just a regular good old little lady. Ive gone through a bit of a rough patch in the last month and I am hoping someone with a kind heart will bring me into their home and help me heal. Unfortunately, my owner passed away and I now make my home at the Heartland SPCA with my sister Stormy. We have been together all 12 years of our lives so we need to find a home where we can both call our own. Also, we are both front declawed. I’m a little overwhelmed by the shelter environment, so I would love to find a family who can provide me with a calm and quiet home. I love chin and neck rubs and once I know you, I am quite the purr machine. I have the softest black coat and a kind face with warm eyes. I look forward to the day that I can find someone to love again and I hope that someone is you. Please consider taking my sister Stormy and I home today!

More about Spooky
Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • House trained • Declawed • Primary color: Black


I actually don’t see Stormy’s listing on Petfinder, but I’m guessing that the Heartland SPCA just made one listing for both cats. I hope anyway! The alternatives are too just depressing. Anyway, adopt them! Today!

* Bewitching! See what I did there?

** Or is Spooky a dude? I CAN’T TELL!

Miss O-Ren Ishii, a tiny lil’ rat/fox terrier mix whom we adopted from Animal Haven
(keep reading for the significance!) 5 1/2 years ago.
Much like her namesake, she is awesome and kick-ass.

Welcome to yet another Saturday Garbage Plate, peoples! I hope you’re enjoying the beautiful autumn weather. Today’s forecasted high in Kansas City is 79, so as soon as I finish this here link roundup, I’m moving my office outside, to the patio. At least I’ll get some much-needed Vitamin D whilst working my weekend away, eh?
