–THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT; THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON WENDY, PLEASE CONTACT AUGUST AT THE EMAIL BELOW–

Big Kitty came to us 5yrs ago from a brother and sister stating that she had been left at their apartment after her owners moved out. After all of this tim she still does not appear to have settled in, and really only likes spending time with me or outdoors. Big Kitty is approx 8yrs old, domestic long hair grey kitty. She’s very talkative, loves indoors and outdoors, and seemingly prefers to be in a single animal household. She does not our two dogs, and didn’t like the kitten that we had. She’s not aggressive or scratchy/bitey…just avoidant and skiddish and meows/expresses herself loudly when she’s nervous or annoyed. I’ve kept her as long as I have because she and I have a good connection, but she doesn’t like anyone else in the house.
Now we are planning on moving across the country and between the dogs and the long drive, I do not think that she will do well with this transition. I would love to see her in a calm home with someone that loves an opinionated cat where she can live out her older adulthood.

If you are interested in meeting Big Kitty, please email August at augustinvermont@gmail.com!

Kashi is about nine years old and is looking for a new forever home as I am no longer able to keep her. She really wants a home with somebody she can be around and love. Though not a lap cat, she enjoys being close to me. She is on the end of the desk when I am on the computer, on the next chair when I am watching TV or reading, and at the bottom of the bed when I am sleeping. She loves to have her head and neck scratched and responds with purrs.  Kashi is shy and hides when company comes so needs a one-person home with a quiet, predictable environment.

If you are interested in meeting Kashi, please contact info@pixieproject.org.

JoJo:
Orange cats are known for being loving, cuddly, and talkative. I did not know this until I met JoJo and said, “This is the best cat I have ever met” and was promptly told that no one is surprised. He sleeps on top (or at least touching) my husband and I every night, greets us at the door by talking and plopping over to show his back, and loves being near us almost at all times. He can lay back and do his own thing and is accustomed to long working schedules but makes sure you know he missed you at the end of the day. He is overall the sweetest, most easy-going, gentleman cat I have ever met. He has lived with my husband and I for years but his history states he lived in a house with dogs and children and got along great with all of them. He was friendly and calm with any guests we had, including our young nieces. JoJo has hyperthyroidism and does need a medication once daily. He is currently taking a liquid, chicken flavored dose and is easy to med. He has no other health concerns.

Eliot:
Eliot is a sweet lady and loves pets and attention. She purrs like a passing truck and talks loudly near mealtime. She has a funny personality and she loves chasing. Strings, food, and pets from her people are her favorite things. She also loves high places. Her previous home included many cats and 2 dogs and it was reported that she was intimidated by the constant noise and her living companions. She may not do as well with a rowdy home or with aggressive animals. She did very well when our young nieces and any other guests came to visit and harassed them often for loves. She is not well suited to be an outdoor cat. She loves the indoor life as long as there is a high place and consistent food. She did escape once this year and we concluded she doesn’t know to come inside after she has been out. She has hyperthyroidism. The medication we give her is chicken flavored, once daily and she does great for that. She has a funny game with my husband where she sits on the highest tower of the cat tree and tries to gently bat him as he passes if he doesn’t reach up to pet her. Her favorite game with me is where I pet her chest and try to pull away before she can object by putting her paw on my hand. She is also used to long schedules and can do her own thing but thrives with daily loves.

If you are interesting in giving JoJo and Eliot a new home, please contact Samira at samira.seeber@gmail.com

Brody is a 13 year old short-haired light brown Dachshund. He is 18 lbs and currently located in Everett, and hes desperately in need of a new home!

Brody really enjoys cuddling and taking walks around the neighborhood. He loves to play with other dogs and people, and also enjoys chewing on his bones and toys.

He shows lots of affection to people and gets very excited when his owner would get home. At night he really enjoys cuddling and being close to his owner. Although hes only been in his current owners care for a short time, he shows heart-warming affection and she says “He is one of the most good natured and sweetest dogs that I’ve ever met!”

He is neutered and has his vet record available and he is up to date on all his vaccines. The current owner says he is friendly with other dogs and children, hes leash trained and travels well in a car. He is house trained and knows some basic commands but may become anxious if left alone for too long.

Please help this wonderful little dog find a place in a rescue so he has his chance at his forever home! If you or anyone you know can help, please share this email or contact his current caretaker, Curt at (971) 217-0973 or curtchristie77@gmail.com.

My name is Mabel! I am a sweet hound mix and I sure do love being around people. They tell me that I’m about eight years old, and I’m really settling into life as a mellow middle-aged gal. I’m happiest when I get to stick to my routine of snoozing, snuggling with my people, taking my daily walk, and snoozing some more in the back yard. I’m not much for fetch or other games, I really just prefer to pony up next to my person and take it all in.

I would love to find a family who is able to hang out with me more often than not. I don’t mind spending some time by myself, but I think we can all agree that life is better when spent with your buddies!

I would thrive in a loving home with an experienced dog owner. Unfamiliar dogs make me nervous until we get a chance to really get to know each other. I’m also not too keen on sharing a home with cats. Cats are for chasing. I would do best in a home without small children.

In return, I will offer you endless loyalty and be your most adoring companion. If interested in adopting me, please email yourfriendmabel@gmail.com for more details!

Meet little AERO, a 6 year old, long haired black and tan male Dachshund. Little AERO is a sweet, loving and handsome little special needs doxie who is looking for a loving, forever family of his very own. His current human family finds themselves unable to care for his needs, so they have reached out to Oregon Dachshund Rescue, Inc. to help him. You see, little AERO experienced an injury to his back and now gets around with wheels, which he loves to do. AERO cannot stand on his own. He needs assistance expressing his bladder and bowels. According to his current family, AERO is car trained, leash trained and friendly with everyone (except cats). He doesn’t like cats and barks at other animals (even on TV), but enjoys all people and LOVES going for walks. 

With this in mind, AERO will likely do best in a doxie savvy family with a stay at home parent (retired or work from home) who is able to help care for his special needs and perhaps only older children (over the age of 12), who are sensitive to the special needs of Dachshunds.

Unfortunately, ODR, Inc. is over-full and cannot take this little Doxie in. If you or anyone you know can help, please share this email or contact his current caretaker, Curt at (971) 217-0973 or curtchristie77@gmail.com.

Hello! My name is Windsor Charles, but my friends call me Winny or Winny C. or Winny Char Char or Winnypants or sometimes just Windsor. I am a 3 (maybe 4?) year old Chihuahua terrier mix with a quirky personality and a heart of gold. As much as I tried to be an urban jet-setter, I’ve realized life in the big city just isn’t for me. It’s much too busy and cramped for me to plant my roots. I’d really thrive in a more rural environment with room for me to grow and blossom! I’m ready to trade in scary Tri-met busses and loud construction for a nice backyard and maybe some calming crickets.

I’m in search of a nice lady over 40 who loves long walks on the beach and to hike and camp and enjoy nature as much as I do! I need to live in an OWNED home with a fenced yard and space for me to sniff, run and explore. An older sister or brother of the canine variety with the patience to show me the ropes and help me to build my confidence would be a dream come true, but I’m also fine just being an only dog. I really don’t care for puppies though, and kids make me nervous. Those bouncy little things are unpredictable! Men are pretty scary to me due to past trauma, but if they are willing to take the time and get on my level to gain my trust I will be cuddling up in no time.

Because of my rough beginnings I can be a pretty nervous guy. I’ll need to be in a calm environment with a big hearted person who is patient and willing to diligently work with me to overcome my anxiety triggers. I’m thinking this big ol’ world might not be so scary after all! I’ve conquered some of my most major fears already, so I know in the right environment, with the right person(s) I’ll continue to build confidence. Are you my person? If interested, please contact Amy at amydubb@gmail.com.

–THIS CAT IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT JOHN AT THE EMAIL BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS–
Teddy is at 15 year old medium hair cat. She is quiet and affectionate (the only cat I have met who NEVER tires of being petted), purrs readily, has comical quirks, loves to fetch a toy when we hide it for her, and is a wonderful lap kitty/companion. We never had another animal, but understand from Seattle Humane Society (from whom we adopted her in 2010) that she does better in a 1-cat adult home. She is healthy and proper weight for length (10 lb). She takes meds (felimazole) for hyperthyroidism. This is very easy if you crush the pill and mix it with a little Friskies pate and hot water. She thinks it is freshly killed mouse and begs for it. She has had occasional out of litter box incidents, and coughs up a hairball every week or so — mostly she behaves pretty well (if one can speak of behavior with regard to a cat!). We cannot keep her because my wife is finding it increasingly difficult to care for her when I am away, due to my wife’s disabilities.

Please email John at quietlyjr@aol.com if you are interested in meeting her!
