When Felines are Pals

TC_Maggie_Mae
We definitely see it more often with kittens – kittens from the same litter or that are raised together in the early stages of their lives become very close to one another. The bond that they form is strong and gives them the emotional and physical support they need to be happy and healthy in body, mind and spirit.

In litters with multiple siblings, foster parents tell us that they can definitely spot the two that have become pals with one another – as is the case in this photo of the kittens TC and Maggie Mae.

But we also see these types of friendships forming between adult cats whether they have been living together for some time like Nala and Nico or whether their circumstances have compelled them to become fast friends as in the case of Fern and Willow.

Even in the cat community rooms at the Coronado Animal Care Facility, we see cats that have never met before gravitate towards each other and form close relationships.

The bottom line is that cats are not the solitary creatures that they are pegged to be. Almost all cats, with few exceptions, appreciate the companionship of another feline. Of course just like us they have their unique personalities and so they may not get along with every cat they meet.

When we get in two adult cats that have grown up together or lived a number of years together we have to try to evaluate how bonded they are. It is much easier to get two kittens adopted together than it is to get two adult cats adopted together and so we must consider separating them.

This is a hard decision to make and in all cases we do what we feel is best for the cats.

Luckily with adult cats that are super bonded, like Felix & Shadow, Serena & Tabitha, Cutie & Tabby, Pat & Mike and others, we have been able to find them homes together.

Let’s hope we can always do what is best for the felines and keep bonded pairs together!

Pet of the Week: Huxley!

Did Someone Say Fetch?!

Our guy Huxley is a fun and sporty guy who loves playing fetch with his humans and horsing around with his canine pals. Huxley was relinquished by his family when they could no longer take care of him.

· Huxley is spunky and athletic, and would love to be with an active family. He especially loves to play fetch.

· Huxley is also very social with other dogs and would make a great second dog, or just a good buddy for trips to the park and the beach.

· When it comes time to take it down a notch, Huxley is a great snuggler.

· Huxley is a great size at 25 pounds. He would be great in most living situations as long as he gets his exercise!

Male Dog, 6 Years Old, White with Black & Tan, Rat Terrier Blend, 25 Pounds, Shots Up to Date, Neutered, Microchipped, Adoption Fee = $125.00

City Council Meeting Reminder

paws of coronado partners wit the city of coronado meeting tuesday 09.02.14 at 4pm

Come Support PAWS Tuesday, 09/02/14, at 4:00 pm

As announced last Wednesday, in the early spring of this year Coronado City Manager Blair King invited PAWS of Coronado to enter into negotiations with the City of Coronado to assume the management and operation of the Coronado Animal Care Facility.

Those negotiations concluded last week with a proposed contract and budget being worked out which was agreeable to both sides. The concept, contract and budget must be approved by the City Council – that review and consideration by Council is scheduled for tomorrow.

The Council Agenda is available online and includes a copy of the contract in its entirety.

A strong PAWS presence is needed at the Council meeting to show the Council how important this next step is for our community and our animals.

Please come to the City Council meeting and wear your yellow PAWS shirts if you have one. If you don’t have a PAWS shirt, come and wear anything yellow, even a hair or wrist band!

Please help spread the word to family, friends and co-workers – we want the Council to SEE that we are united behind our animals.
