Adopt a Cat: Anabel

March 3, 2016

Anabelthecat

This week’s featured adoptable cat is Anabel, an adult female medium-sized “tuxedo” cat.

Anabel is a professional cuddler – she can be found on or near you at all times. She doesn’t have many demands, just needs you to cuddle her immediately upon getting home. She will also require the use of your lap, the space by your pillow, and your back or stomach when you lie down.

Anabel2You must regularly scratch the spot between her front legs but not down any further! Also, she must purr in your ear at least ten minutes daily. If you are sad or feeling ill, she’ll find a place near you and stay there until you feel better. Finally, your undivided attention is required, so please don’t bring any other cats around. She plans on returning the favor, as she’ll be following you to any room and sleeping with you every night. But that is all. See? Anabel is not a diva!

Anabel prefers to be in a one-cat home.

She is spayed, FeLV and FIV negative, current with shots, treated for fleas and worms, and is litter box trained.

To adopt this cat please complete and return a PAWS adoption application to ProjectMEOWAdoptions@gmail.com or mail it to: PO Box 32078, Philadelphia, PA 19146. The adoption application is available at the Baltimore Pet Shoppe (4532 Baltimore Ave), or online. Please use number A28564499 when applying to adopt this cat.

This cat is being fostered through the partnership of Project MEOW and PAWS. For additional information, contact projectmeowadoptions@gmail.com

Adopt a Cat: Gracie

January 27, 2016

Graciethecat

This week’s featured adoptable cat is Gracie, a young female domestic short-hair medium-size cat.

Gracie’s personality type is Private Investigator. Her curiosity knows no bounds; she is always finding the hidden nooks and corners of your home. Gracie is also a part­-time lover; she wants to be in the same room but gimme some space!

Classically attired in a black and white tuxedo this lady is all set for your next formal affair. In true formal fashion though she does require monogamy. No other cats, please. Other humans will be considered with an interview.

Gracie is an independent lady and quite serious about her responsibilities, however, don’t be fooled. With a little persuading of her heart, this girl opens up and just starts talking and talking and talking and then when truly at ease her freak flag flies and she bounces around like a kitten.

Gracie is neutered, FeLV and FIV negative, current with shots, treated for fleas and worms, and is litter box trained.

This cat is being fostered through the partnership of Project MEOW and PAWS.

To adopt Gracie, please complete and return a PAWS adoption application. It is available at the Baltimore Pet Shoppe (4532 Baltimore Ave.), or online at http://tinyurl.com/PMAdoptionApp. Application and adoption fee ($50.00) applies. Please use my number A30008400 when applying to adopt this cat.

Holiday “thank you” from local cat rescue organization

If there’s anything this community knows it’s lost cats. A lost or abandoned cat’s best friend, the West Philly-based feline rescue organization Project MEOW, had a busy year helping stray cats and kittens find homes. They also help keep feral cat population under control through their TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) program. Here are a few numbers from 2015 in Project MEOW’s holiday card to the community, and an important note that none of this work would have been possible without volunteers. To learn more about Project MEOW, visit their website or Facebook page.

A couple of stray dogs need some help

December 18, 2015

Two stray dogs have been reported in the area and need some help.

The first report is of a stray dog that was hit by a car on Thursday at 54th and Chestnut:

Around 11:40 a.m. on December 17th a stray female white pitbull was hit by a grey Toyota sedan at the intersection of 54th and Chestnut. After being hit, the dog rolled and took off running south down 54th St. She didn’t look injured as I didn’t see her limp while running but I don’t know if there was any internal damage. She also looked to be pregnant or having recently given birth.

I stopped my car and tried to locate the dog but was unsuccessful. I immediately called Philadelphia Animal Care and Rescue but they were also unable to locate her.

Could you please put a message out to the neighborhood to be on the lookout for the dog? I feel horrible after seeing that happen and I wasn’t able to help. If someone locates her please call the ASPCA or Animal Care (to make sure she gets the help she needs.

Two reports of a golden retriever wandering the neighborhood came in this morning. The dog was first seen near 50th and Spruce at around 12:30 a.m. on Friday. Another person spotted the dog at 43rd and Locust at about 1 a.m. The sighting was reported to Philadelphia Animal Care & Control Team (ACCT). The person followed the dog but lost its sight at 45th and Spruce.

To report a dog on the loose to ACCT, call (267) 385-3800. Also, check out this page.
