This is Mackie, a beautiful tabby boy who is noisily waiting for a new home.
And why is he noisy? Because he knows the WHS drill. After all, he waited for several months for a home this summer. And now, due to a few problems, he’s back again.
Mackie was found as a stray in the summer of 2014, and he was brought to WHS and named “Preston.” He quickly became a staff favorite, because he had such a huge, huge personality. He was the first to greet visitors in his suite, the first to eat, the first to play and the first to flop down for belly rubs.
With that big personality, we figured he’d get adopted fast. But, he had a long wait then. We hope that won’t happen again.
Mackie’s Ideal Home
Mackie lived with many different cats during his first stay at WHS. He lived in one of the open suites, and he got along with the majority of his roomies.
But in his home, Mackie was a little cranky. It’s that crankiness that got him returned.
So he might need to be the only pet in his new home. Or, if he will be living with roomies, introductions will need to be planned well in advance, and things should move really slowly. With that kind of work, he might integrate quite nicely.
I’m hoping someone will visit this boy soon. Let’s make his stay a short one this time!
This pretty guy is Troy, and I fell in love with him last week. As soon as I opened up his kennel to say hello, he flung himself out for a great, big hug. He’s just bursting with affection and charm, and I was more than happy to pet his velvety fur.
Troy is also an excellent salesman, as he has a wonderful little chirp that he uses to draw attention to himself as people walk by. And I can imagine that he’s doing a lot of that chirping, as he’s made the move to the satellite adoption center of Petco on Lancaster.
Troy’s Ideal Home
Troy needs a home in which he’ll get a lot of interaction. He may be a senior at 10 years old, but he does seem to crave a lot of human attention. He loves to talk, to play and to spend time with people. A home in which people can dote on him would be perfect.
Troy also needs to live indoors, because he’s been declawed on his front paws. He can’t fend for himself out there (and he probably wouldn’t want to leave the safety of the indoors, anyway).
Troy can go to a multi-cat home, as he has a good history of living with other cats. Apparently, he’s very docile in the face of even feisty cats. But, introductions should (as always) go slowly. That’s the best way to ensure long-term happiness.
Troy is a special project of mine, simply because I love him and he’s just the sort of guy I’d take home if I had the room to do so. Can you help me out by adopting him? I would do me (and him) so much good to see him in a perfect home this week.
Bonus Beauty: Calliope!
I was a little surprised to see this sweet face waiting for me today. But, it seems that Calliope hasn’t yet found the perfect home, despite her blog stardom last week (read that entry here). I’m hoping this week will be magical for this wonderful girl. She’s ready to move out.
Next Week: Pudding!
This darling face belongs to Pudding: A new arrival. He’s a year old, and he’s a huge bundle of love. Like Troy, this guy is a hugger. You’ve just got to experience it.
If he’s still available next week, I’ll tell you all about him. But if you’re at all interested in him, you might schedule a visit soon. He’s bound to go fast.
That’s it! As always, please share. I’d love for all of the cats mentioned here to find perfect homes this week.
Jean lives in Salem with her two dogs and five cats (and all of those critters appear on Jean's personal pet blog: Welcome to the Menagerie ).
