Buddy the cat and Samson the dog had been lost since the Mountain Fire. Imagine the stories they could both tell now that they have returned. Such a relief. Monte, the little guy, has returned home, also.

Tippycanoe seems to be a bit shy for the camera this week, so Tyler II decided to give his best pose. Maybe Tippy thought she needed freshening up to look her best for her audience. No need to meow over spilled milk, Tippy. You are cute as a button. Tyler is the typical big brother flying on all fours through the room, sliding to a quick stop only to flip a toy mouse or ball in the air. He can scale the cat tree in nothing flat, looking back only to make sure sister is watching his expertise.

On the other hand, these sisters are calm, cool and collected in the cat tree, in each other’s arms, as you see. Sadie and Carly are identical twin sisters with a 1-year birthday coming soon. Sadie is a bit shy, allowing Carly to take the lead. Together, they make a great gift and addition to your home. Patience will be important to allow them to become adjusted. All they ask for is a cat tree and you.


Sandy can often be found dancing on just two legs for treats or at mealtime. Such a gentle Chihuahua-mix, she was the perfect mom for her brood. She has her girly figure back, and is in search of a semi-quiet home. Sandy is good with other dogs, cats and people. She loves to walk on the leash and is our sun goddess. She will follow the sun and simply lay in the warmth. Surely you have a piece of the sun you would share with her.
