When you are a cat nothing is better than snuggling on a warm blanket, a warm lap, or window with the warm sun beaming on your body. Here are just a few photos of our famous cats snuggling up! It’s great to see a cat like Midnight break out of his shell once they are comfortable in a loving home. Midnight used to be a “scaredy cat” and wouldn’t want to receive any attention but that has all changed now. He loves to greet visitors and doesn’t mind a photo op! And Penny enjoys a good nap.
Pennyâ€™s adopted mother reports that our dear girl is doing very well. She is physically strong and her health is holding steady. She found a new cat food that Penny loves. The house smells like roses again. Lindsay, Pennyâ€™s adopted mother is really enjoying Penny a lot more lately. She is learning how to live among several other feline roommates. Penny always had a friendly demeanor, but at times she was overly shy or spooked, and other times overly aggressive during playtime. Lindsey is happy to report each month any new behaviors she sees coming from Penny. There was a time Penny was afraid to have her face stroked, but now she lifts her face up to Lindseyâ€™s hand to get her chubby cheeks and chin rubbed. Penny lets her know it feels good by purring. She is a super sweet cat and has adjusted to living with a full house of other kitties.
We are happy to report that Sponsor Program cat Penny had her wellness check-up recently and her â€œnumbersâ€ are all good. Her renal disease has not progressed at all. Unless being a foodie is considered a disease! She did gain half a pound which is not good for Penny. Her adopted family is concentrating more on her activities level. Her favorite way to stay active is with string. She has toys galore, but when she gets any piece of string, thatâ€™s all she will play with. She is free to roam, eat and sleep where she pleases. Pennyâ€™s adopted mother and the Animal League thank you for your generous contributions and love for Penny which help pay for the medical supplies and wellness visits needed to keep her living the best quality of life possible.
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.
Penny could not have started the year off any better. After returning to the Animal League for a second time Penny has found a fantastic home. One of the cat behavioral trainers here at the Animal League had a friend that she knew would simply love Penny. As soon as she came to the shelter to meet Penny it was truly a match made in heaven. Penny has started the New Year off in a loving and caring home with a great family! All of the staff at the Animal League couldnâ€™t be more excited and are truly thankful for the continued support of her Sponsors, which allowed them to work hard at finding the right home for Penny to spend her days.
Unfortunately, Pennyâ€™s daily care has been increasingly more difficult to maintain for her adoptive parent. While Penny doesnâ€™t mind receiving her daily fluids, it is time consuming and taxing to administer these fluids on an ongoing basis. Although her adoptive parent loves Penny dearly he does want to make sure that Penny gets the best care possible. Because Penny will always have a place to call home at the Animal League, she has come back to stay with us while we all work hard to find her a great, loving home; hopefully in time for the New Year. In the meantime the staff at the Animal League will be sure to shower Penny will love and attention as always.
Pennyâ€™s adoptive parents advised that she has been feeling well and has not had any health concerns this past month. She takes her medication without any fuss and doesnâ€™t seem to mind that her adoptive sibling Zippy doesnâ€™t have daily medication just like her! Pennyâ€™s family has noticed that she likes to spend her time lounging under the dresser and also laying across the window sill where she watches the birds. When she gets a little rambunctious you can find her and Zippy swatting at each other playfully. Her adoptive parents said that Zippy and Penny love to play together â€“ including hiding from each other, jumping, chasing and batting one anotherâ€™s tails.
Penny continues to be an extremely playful and bouncy little kitty. She absolutely loves to spend her days playing with her feline companion Zippy and her medical condition never seems to have any effect on her attitude at all. She frolics around the condo chasing him around and loves to jump out and pounce for some good-natured wrestling. Pennyâ€™s owner also loves how much time she spends playing with him. Sheâ€™s simply an absolute delight to have around.
Penny continues to be a good sport with taking her daily fluids and rarely puts up a fight. She also continues to be rambunctious and playful. Her foster parent has made sure to provide Penny, and her friend Zippy, with additional toys and scratching posts. He is hoping that this will help ensure that both Penny and Zippy keep their paws off of the furniture. This plan seems to be working and the toys with cat nip seem to be keeping Penny pretty busy. She usually tires herself out with all her rigorous play and instead of scratching the couch; she jumps up on it to take a nap. Â
