Adopted this week were Rockee, the golden-Aussie mix to a loving, forever home. Paws up to you Rockee. Also adopted was Isis/Sissy, the Maine coon mix cat who found her forever home while visiting the INK Bookstore. Meow to you, Isis.

And meow to you too, Lacy. This young adult tuxedo is all about you. Those beautiful green eyes will make you fall in love as she lets you pet her. Lacy loves to play too.


Luna was rescued with the Anza gang. She is a young female, a little on the shy side. She has a clean bill of health and is keeping her eye out for a forever loving home, as are her Anza roommates, Sydney the mini Aussie, Charlie Brown and Chip the teacups, Whisper and Lil Stevie, the longhaired Chihuahuas.

Monty and Mina have lost the comfort of their forever home and now find themselves living in our cattery with Mrs. Magoo and Twiggy. Monty is a pure-white adult male who loves to be groomed. Mina is a senior Burmese/Siamese female who loves a little attention, but for the most part, wants to just look pretty. And you do that well, Mina.

Many of you may recognize Girl as the stray who wandered our streets for many years. Here she is in all of her glory, with a beautiful coat of Aussie fur, tail wagging for the walk, and a paw up to meet all humans.
