Penny is happily hiding out and hanging out in her very own cat tree – thanks to your sponsorship of Penny, she can live the best quality of life possible – thank you!
Our precious Penny is indulging in some rest and relaxation in her home. Her family finds that Penny likes to spend her days stretched out as long as possible in a nice cool place. Some of her favorite spots are the tile kitchen floor, a window sill where the breeze blows, or the bathtub. Over the past month Pennyâ€™s really found her niche amongst all the cats in her home and has a different relationship with each. She is quite fond of Uno, who is almost completely blind, and when he walks right into her due to his loss of sight she refrains from swatting him and they sniff noses. It is quite an adorable sight.
Here’s Penny looking very comfortable and at ease in her loving foster care home!
Pennyâ€™s family has been working hard to help her shed a few of the extra pounds sheâ€™s been carrying around. She doesnâ€™t have a sagging belly just yet, but she does have a little extra weight all over. To keep her at a healthy weight her family has her on a wet food diet for her renal failure and will continue to monitor her feeding. However, just from brushing her alone she seems to have lost a few pounds in hair! Pennyâ€™s family is happy to report that she has become more social with them around the house and now loves to sit on her adoptive motherâ€™s lap whenever she is at the computer. She even clings to her adoptive mother by wrapping her paws around her waist when she tries to get up from the chair! Itâ€™s quite the sight to behold Penny trying to make her owner stay put.

Posted by Victoria’s new foster mother:
When I first met Victoria in May of this year, her eyes were badly crusted over because of an untreated condition called â€œdry eye,â€ she had infected and decaying teeth, a severe case of dermatitis and ear infections.Â She also developed pneumonia and had to be hospitalized for 10 days.Â Through all of this, she continued to wag her tail when she saw me coming to visit.
Once her health had improved a bit, I took her home.Â I am happy to say that she fit right in with my family and other small dog.Â You could tell that she had nursed many, many puppies by her enlarged nipples.Â She is now spayed and doesnâ€™t have to worry about taking care of any more puppies.Â Now itâ€™s time for us to take care of her and we do it gladlyÂ with much love and attention.Â We just hope that her Grade 3 heart murmur and the mitral valve disease allow her to do all that she wants to (that she was never able to before since she came from a puppy mill).Â So far she is active and enjoying herself.
Now that she knows what a â€œwalkâ€ is, she gets very excited.Â Her â€œCavalierâ€ King Charles spaniel instincts are very strongâ€”sheâ€™s ready to chase any small creature that moves.Â If she hears some birds chirping, she cocks her head to listen and then she must find them.Â She also enjoys just relaxing on the couch and cuddling with my son.
Deuce (aka Louie) looking cheerful and alert as he lounges outÂ in his loving home!
Happy and comfortable, Deuce has quickly become the King of His Castle!
