Pet of the Week! 7/7/23

This is Oliver (cat) and Pickles (turtle). Oliver has two different eyes and we rescued him back in 2018. They told us he was feral and wouldn’t be cuddly towards humans. Now he is the biggest baby and loves all the attention despite my family having two other cats. He knows how to sit, and he loves when you do x marks the spot on his back. Pickles loves his worms and is a red ear turtle that loves you when in the water but when its bath time he pretends like he was never that interested in getting to know you.

Meet Dorian!

This week’s Pet of the Week is Dorian! Named after Dorian Gray, this little cutie loves lounging on feet, tricking you into giving him second dinner, and “play fetch!”. We hope you’re all enjoying your summer as much as Dorian is!

Dorian, a fluffy grey cat, lounges on a couch with a TV remote in front of him as if he's about to change the channel. He is wearing a Chicago Cubs hat on his head that is way too big for hit little noggin.

Meet Duck-Duck & Goose!

This week’s Pet of the Week feature is a twofer: Duck-Duck & Goose!

These brothers were found living in a vending machine. They are both pretty basic cats except that Duck-Duck won’t lie down like a cat. You must pet him while he stands up as hard as he can. Goose loves to have his armpits stretched for him, and if that goes into a hug he’s all about it. He will not stop screaming until his mom does this every morning.

Meet Pigeon!

This week’s Pet of the Week is Pigeon!

Pigeon earned her name from the little coo-ing sound she makes when she purrs! She particularly loves chin & belly scratches and napping in the sun!

Meet Bandya!

This week’s Pet of the Week is Bandya!

This gorgeous kitty loves following his human’s mom around, sleeping in air-conditioning, and climbing anywhere and everywhere in the house. Bandya tries very hard to be a good boy, and we are certain he is the best boy ever!

Two images of Bandya, a medium-haired brown tabby, are side by side on a graphic. In the left image, Bandya walks towards a candle flame in the foreground, the flame illuminates his face as he stares it down. In the right image, Bandya looks off to the left; his eyes are wide, as if he is surprised.

Meet Stevie!

This week’s Pet of the Week is Stevie!

This kitty is both a little bit chunky and a little bit sassy, but also so full of love! She’s originally from the streets of Chicago, but prefers chewing on paper towels or toilet paper over deep dish!
