Flynn Ferdinan

Flynn Ferdinan Image

Hi, there. Just writing to let you know about the crazy cat we adopted FROM NASAP in May of 2005 (his nickname is the "Tabby Terror"). He was a stray picked up in the Beaumont area, and we got him the same day he was brought in to the PetSmart. When we got him, he was just a gangly kitten, bent on getting INTO everything and terrorizing our other cat. He has grown tremendously since then (still gets INTO everything, and still terrorizes the other cat), and he is the cuddliest cat I have ever seen. He loves his Mum a lot, and when she picks him up he just sighs and leans his head on her shoulder and purrs. He is a vocal and chatty cat who loves to play with his shoelace or chase Kitty (the other cat) around the house. He was originally named Ferdinan by the PetSmart staff, and we renamed him Flynn Ferdinan (what can I say? He LOOKS like a Ferdinan) He loves to eat tuna and scratch everything in sight, as well as shred cardboard and paper. His Mum has tried to take him outside several times on a harness, but for such a big cat he is sure a sissy-boy! He gets scared and cries to get back in the house! We could not have a Christmas tree last year because Flynn tried to climb it, and he broke it. I think he also tried to eat it. We also had to leave the Christmas gifts in a closet because Flynn likes paper and would open our presents for us long before Christmas Day! We love him, though, and cannot imagine life without him. Who would wake us up at 4 a.m. with shrill yowling? Who would run around the kitchen chasing lint balls and running INTO walls? And who would beat up Kitty? No, life would be boring without Flynn Ferdinanhe's momma's little muffin! Kylie Fergusson, Sean Fox, and Kitty


Berkly Image

Hello everyone, Berkly wanted to let you know just how much fun he is HAVING in his new home. We are so incredibly blessed to have this special little man in our life. Berkly has quite the personality and we are quickly finding out what his needs are. At around 9 p.m. he settles in for the night and will bark because he needs his favorite blanket and toy on the bed. He likes HAVING his bear or stuffed ball when he goes to bed and uses it as a "chin pillow". Berkly shares his home with two parrots named Citrus and Jefferson. Berkly is very good with the birds and does not bother them, he is however, extremely jealous when they come out and he lets us know that he doesn't like sharing mom and dad with anyone else! Berkley has lots of aunts and uncles that have taken to him and Great Grandma has knitted him his very own blanket for his bed! He received an excellent CHECK up with Dr. Bennett FROM Terwillager Vet Clinic and we successfully had his files transfered FROM Lessard Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Bennett has also had Berkly's file transfered FROM Calgary so that we can ensure continuing ongoing care for this special little dog. We cannot believe how much joy and love Berkly has brought to our home. His Aunty Larissa is a groomer and when she was finished bathing and grooming Berkley, he was like a whole new dog when he came home! Thank you again for your tireless efforts in saving these important members of our community. You are so greatly appreciated by those of us who are blessed to be able to share our love with these special "children". Lillian Melnyk


Boonie Image

Boonie is a very lucky boy who was adopted by a super couple who were looking for just the right companion. Boonie gets to go work with his mom most days and hangs out with her in the yard after work where he plays with his big red ball. Boonie's new family has a huge bed that is perfect for snuggling in which he takes advantage of whenever he can. There is also a cat to keep Boonie company on the odd day that he may have to stay home. Flyball and agility are on the list of things that Boonie will soon be enjoying so we know he will have a wonderful and active life with his new companions. Have a super time Boonie.

Hope you have fun Ryder. Oakley (right) was adopted to a home with three boys so he will be very busy running and playing games with his new family. We wish you luck Oakley and hope you have lots of great times with those boys.


Scamp Image

Scamp has gone to a super home with two young boys to play with on an acreage. Scamp loves her new family very much as they do her. She is quite happy to look after the new kitten and loves to wait for the kids to come home FROM school on the bus, then she waits for dad to get home FROM work. Once everyone is home she settles happily on her doggy bed and looks on with joy at her new family.

Shaggy was adopted by a nice family as a companion for mom when the kids were at school. Shaggy gets to hang out with mom and the ladies that come to her in home nail salon where she supervises the activities there. Shaggy also get trips to the farm to visit the horses. Lucky Shaggy.


Shakira Image

Shakira has gone to a terrific home where she has another border collie to play with and where she will play many fun border collie games. Shakira's new name is Kira and she is so happy with her new family. We think it is a great place for a young border collie pup to grow up.

Sabine (Formerly Jewel)

Sabine (Formerly Jewel) Image

Hi There. Just wanted to let you know how Sabine is doing with us. At the beginning of April we had new neighbours move in next door. They have a 2 year old terrier cross and he and Sabine are fast friends. When they wrestle they literally take turns being on the bottom. The neighbours have been very generous in letting the dogs tear around their yard. She is definitely a frisbee dog, though a ball will do in the absence of a frisbee and her fetching is amazing. If she doesn't bring it close enough, you can just tell her to bring it and she does. On the other hand, she isn't much of a catcher. I'm not sure she'd be a flyball candidate. I was telling Tim just yesterday when we were throwing balls at the off-lead that it would be like elementary school all over again - she'd be the dog no one wanted on their team. Sigh... people keep telling me she'll grow INTO it. They haven't seen the ball bounce on her head on the third bounce. Her spay went well and her right ear has stopped flopping forwards, which makes me a little sad, but now she might be even cuter with one floppy ear and one not. We are enjoying Sabine very much!
