Available for adoption this week is Minnie. THE MOUSE. Minnie the mouse! Imma pause for a second so that you can fully absorb and appreciate the cuteness, mkay?

Those tiny little hand-feet! Long tickle-y whiskers! Big pink ears! Silly teefies, perfect for nibbling veggies! Seriously, is there anything about mice that isn’t heart-stoppingly adorable? Even their little droppings are charming and dainty! (Charming as long as they aren’t in my kitchen cabinets, anyhow. Nah, they’re still charming! They mean that mice are near, and I love mice!)

Okay, I’m starting to make myself sick. Let’s move on, shall we? Miss Minnie is currently staying at the T. Russell Reitz Regional Animal Shelter in Manhattan, Kansas. I know that’s a bit of a haul for you Kansas Citians, but it’s so worth it! And maybe you have family in the area you should go visit anyway? Whatever, do it! You can’t put a price on love!

Find-a-Friend Friday: Lucky (and Blair the ice cream sundae, too!)

Lucky once, hopefully twice!

Lucky needs your help! This sweet pittie girl’s human can no longer care for her due to health problems – and if someone awesome doesn’t come to Lucky’s rescue asap, she may wind up in the Kansas City Animal Shelter, a high-kill facility where her chances look grim. Please help if you can, and no matter where you live; though Lucky and her man are located in KCMO, transport out of the area is a possibility.

COMPASSION CASE: KCMO Pittie Mix (named LUCKY) and her KCMO Gentleman Need You!

Lucky is a healthy 4 year-old Pittie Mix who needs rehoming ASAP due to her owner’s medical condition. She weighs about 50 lbs. and is Heartworm Negative.

Lucky was rescued from running in traffic a few years ago by her current owner. She was found near a park, was very hungry to the point of being just skin and bones, and had chewed her own tail out of frustration until it was bleeding.

Lucky would LOVE to be the only 4-legged resident in her next home, but is also good with other male dogs and select females. She has also successfully lived with a cat. Lucky is a very sweet girl who will wag her tail all day long when she’s happy, loves rolling up in a blanket and playing hide and seek, and relaxing on the couch if one is available. She is crate trained as well, and appreciates her crate as a safe haven.

Please help Lucky’s people successfully rehome her or place her with a reputable rescue group ASAP. Her kind-hearted owner loves her tremendously: He just absolutely cannot keep her and unfortunately will need to take her to the Kansas City Animal Shelter (high-kill) if we do not step up to help. Transportation out of the Kansas City area can very likely be arranged upon request.

Please contact mlmurphey119@gmail.com or susan.keil@gmail.com with any questions or for more information.

Also, because I wanted to keep things light for Halloween (good luck with that right?), OMG LOOK IT’S A DOG DRESSED LIKE AN ICE CREAM SUNDAE!

This little bowl of delightfulness is named Blair, and she’s available for adoption through the Humane Society of Missouri. (I know, I had to travel all the way to Chesterfield, MO to find a rescue group that showcases their dogs in silly outfits. The injustice of it all!) She’s a nine-year-old Welsh Corgi and you should totally adopt her ’cause she’s been at the shelter since August and that’s entirely too long. For serious!

So help these ladies out, mkay? If not by adopting, then by sharing.

Have a happy and safe Halloween, y’all!

Find-a-Friend Friday: Stan the Man! (Also: “Find Your Boo!” Half Price Adoption Event at Wayside Waifs)

Stan the Man!

Wayside Waifs – like so many other shelters across the country – is currently filled with dozens of awesome cats and kittens in need of homes (160 at least count!). Newborns like the adorably named Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Han Solo and Chewbacca (siblings, I’m guessing?), or Daffy and Daisy Duck; distinguished older cats including Lola and Morgan; longer-term residents, like October; and special “special needs” felines, such as Stan the Man here!

Stan’s requirements aren’t all that extraordinary, actually; the little guy is just short one eye and needs you to look past that, mkay? Don’t think of him as different – at least not in a negative way; think of him as unique! The most adorable pirate you’ve ever seen!

 

Animal ID : 14071044
Breed : Domestic Medium Hair / Mix
Age : 8 years 1 month
Gender : Male
Color : White
Spayed/Neutered : Yes
Declawed : No

Stan the Man here! Just like Stan Musial I’m an all star, widely considered to be one of the all time greatest snugglers of all time. I’ve compiled 3,630 purrs (the most in a career spent with only one team) 475 home runs for watching sporting events with my family, and was named the Most Valuable Pussycat by all my roommates, I’d still be living there but the landlord in our new place allows only two pets and the dogs got to stay. I lived with only one family my whole life and I’m sad I had to go, but I just know I’ll find another family just as terrific. If you’re looking for a Hall of Fame Feline Friend, I’m your man!

You may have noticed I have only one eye. Kind of makes me look kind of rakish, like a pirate, I’m thinking Johnny Depp. Boy, is he hot! I hear the ladies really go for him. They go for me too! I have lots of fans here in the staff and volunteers at Wayside. I’m a people person and love to hang out with you, but do okay with small dogs. I lived with two small dogs for many years but I’m not good with big dogs as I’d been attacked by them in my past. Please don’t take me if you have a big dog. I’m very afraid. I shouldn’t go outside. I can’t defend myself well because I can’t see what’s coming on one side.

Inside I do great! I love to climb and my favorite place to perch is high up on the furniture. I respond well to my name, so please don’t change it when we go home. I’ve lost my people, my home and my dog brothers, so my name is all I have left that’s familiar and comfortable. I need something to hold on to, please. I’ve lived with a family the last 8 years so I’m having a little trouble adjusting to shelter life. I’m a bit shy and not as outgoing and friendly as I’d be with people I know and love. When we go home, I might go hide under a bed or in a closet until I feel comfortable joining the family. I’m affectionate and want to be buddies, but I’ll need a bit of time to adjust.

My family says I enjoy running water so if I can please have a kitty fountain or stick my head under the sink when you’re brushing your teeth or doing dishes sometimes, I’d like that. I have great hygiene habits and never have a litter box issue if you keep it clean for me. I eat dry food but shouldn’t have only dry food as it’s hard on my tummy. I need some wet food too. Thank you so much for honoring my requests. And don’t forget in these tough economic times, I’m a bargain, just $25 for a lifetime of friendship and affection. Such a deal I have for you!

I’m looking forward to joining your team and being your MVP. I’ll be at batting practice faithfully learning to swat my toy mice way, way out there… going going gone! Holy cow! See you around the ball park.

Stan

Ginger Rogers, what a beauty! This senior pittie girl has it all – class, sass, personality – everything except for a forever home, that is. Maybe one of you could help with that? Until then, Ginger is staying with the good folks at Heart of America Humane Society:

To meet GINGER, please contact Emily directly at 913-424-4557 or at emily.anne.hawkins@gmail.com.

Meet Ginger Rogers – a 60 pound Pittie/Lab mix who thinks she is a lap dog! This beautiful 8 year old elderbull loves to be with her humans – whether you are lounging on the couch, going on a walk, or taking a road trip – as long as she’s with you, Ginger is one happy girl! Ginger is calm, goofy, and extremely food motivated! She has already learned how to sit, stay, lay down, shake and wait for her food – and she would love you to teach her even more tricks! She is potty trained, does not try to climb on to furniture (unless she is invited!) and is very agreeable when getting a bath or her ears & teeth cleaned. Although she is not a fan of cats, she loves all humans big (adult) and little (children) and would do well as an only dog or in a house with multiple dogs. Miss Ginger is looking for a patient and confident forever family who will let her lay at their feet while watching TV and give her a nice, cozy dog bed to take naps in!

The Heart of America Humane Society has adoptions each Saturday at the Petsmart at 115th and Metcalf in Overland Park, the Petco at 135th and Blackbob in Olathe and the Petsmart in the Ward Parkway Shopping Center. Please contact the foster parent DIRECTLY to ask questions about this foster, to obtain additional information about this foster or to confirm this foster’s attendance at one of our adoptions.

Find-a-Friend Friday: Willy

(Two-eyed) Willy!

OMFG Willy, what a cutie! When I first saw his photo in thumbnail form, I thought for sure it was one of those admonishing PSA listings featuring a porcelain cat or stuffed animal or something. (Which I adore, don’t get me wrong; I say “admonishing” in the nicest way possible, cause sometimes a little scolding is necessary!) But no! Willy is a cat, a real, flesh and fur cat! With the finest silver fur and most gorgeous green eyes you’ll ever see. All kinds of adorable!

We update our website daily.

Willy is an exceptionally sweet little boy. He loves to be held and gives lots of kisses; he is a serious lap cat!! His estimated birthday is August 1st. He has a little bit of a ‘tic’ which is neurological, but you can barely notice it and he certainly doesn’t seem to. He is neutered and ready for his purrmanent home. His adoption fee is $85.00 with an approved application. He does great with dogs and other cats.

You can visit our adoptable cats and kittens on Saturdays from noon-five at our adoption Center located at Mariposa Veterinary Center. Mariposa Vet Clinic is located at 13900 Santa Fe Trail Drive in Lenexa. Not every animal attends every adoption so always call or e-mail ahead to confirm that a particular animal will be present. All of our cats and kittens stay in licensed foster homes during the week (except for Saturday). For more information e-mail KittyCityKS@aol.com or call 913-422-1911.

Since this attractive little youngster breaks with my tradition of mostly featuring older and “special needs” animals in this here space, I’ll also point you to Blue Skye Adoptions’s other residents – 53 in total – many of whom are older felines. Kittens may be tempting, what with their new life smell and all, but older cats have got it goin’ on, too! Sure, Willy here is the dictionary definition of cuteness – but I doubt he has the more refined manners of, say, a Princess or a Millie. Just think about it, mkay?

And whatever age, breed or species you choose: THANK YOU FOR ADOPTING!
