George

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

George is a nine year old cat who loves to explore, play, and cuddle. “Curious George” has been a nickname of his since he was a kitten. As of late, he loves to have outside time (he’s been primarily an indoor cat most of his life) on our deck and he pops over to our neighbor’s garden when he needs some peace and quiet. Since the arrival of toddlers to our home peace and quiet is something he has been craving a bit more of. He keeps himself endlessly entertained with running and jumping around most of the time and  tuckers himself out with all that exercise which leaves him to spend the rest of his days cuddled up in your lap or in a large ray of sunshine. He’s smart and social, making him an excellent addition to any home. George has lived with a black lab for seven years but hasn’t had too much exposure to other cats.

SID

You see you wouldn’t ask why the rose that grew from the concrete had damaged petals. On the contrary, we would all celebrate its tenacity. We would all love its will to reach the sun. Well, we are the rose – this is the concrete – and these are my damaged petals.” ― Tupac Shakur, The Rose That Grew from Concrete

We would like to introduce Sid, a 4-5 year old 50 lb. hound mix who arrived in Portland from Kaua`i on Christmas Eve in search of his forever home. One look at Sid and it is apparent his life had been rough. His tail was crudely cut off and two deep scars around his neck are evidence of a life on a chain. Sid, who likes to go as Sidn’t Vicious, does not let his rough beginnings get him down, and thinks his scars make him rather edgy and cool.  He loves affection from humans and would make a faithful companion who would be happy to accompany you on walks, jogs, and hikes.  Sid is residing at Dogtribe Doggy Daycare where he has met all sorts of dogs…he does particularly well with females and mellow boys.  He is very smart and enjoys obstacle courses and would love to try lure coursing.  Sid was most likely used as a hunting dog prior to his rescue, so we do not recommend him cohabitating with cats or other small animals.  Just one look into his soulful eyes, and you will see that Sid wants to please.  He knows basic obedience commands- heel, sit, down, place- and has had positive interactions with the other dogs in boarding.  He is neutered and current on his vaccinations. Sid is a rose who has risen from the concrete; we celebrate his tenacity to live and love humans despite his difficult beginnings.  For more information about Sid, please contact Dinah at dinahchao@gmail.com or call Toni at Dogtribe 503-238-0737.  Sidn’t Vicious would love to meet you!

Adoption Policy Change for 2016: Pixie will continue to collect the full adoption fee for dogs after the completion of a two-week trial, but starting January first, Pixie will require a $100 deposit from adopters when the dog is taken home. This $100 is not refundable and helps to provide the behavior assessments, any necessary veterinary care, and personalized adoption services, and will be applied towards your adoption fee.

Hi my name is Rufus. My current owner is sadly unable to keep me at her new residence. I am an awesome,affectionate,smart & loving Tonkinese  male 8yrs old indoor cat. I love to sit on your lap; enjoy your company & am an active cat that loves chasing feathery toys on a wand and enjoy being up high on my scratching tree to look outside. I will give you kisses with my nose to let you know how happy I am to be with you. I prefer to live with people that currently have no pets.
Please contact my current owner Shauna for an appointment to meet me to see if I am a good fit for you @ email – sbochsle@gmail.com

Lucy

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

Lucy is the smartest cat in the neighborhood.  Gets along well with all of her buddies outside (except that mean orange one, but he’s a bully!)  She’s only been around one dog, a very small breed, and they get along swimmingly, playing tag and such.   She also LOVES all people, not always wanting to be pet, but always rolling around, looking pretty, basking in the attention.  She’s sorta a celebrity among my neighbors (and yes, I’ve asked ALL of them if they are in a position to adopt her!)  She’s been an indoor/outdoor cat since she found me, preferring to spend ALL of her days in the sun during the summer, and ALL of her time on my lap when it’s cold!

Lucy was dumped on my doorstep, so I’m not entirely sure her age, but it’s between 4-5.  She’s a tiny little baby bear, at just under 7 lbs. She’s been spayed and vaccinated.  In the last four years though, she’s had two medical emergency vet visits, for severely impacted bowels, the first time because I didn’t know anything of her condition, and the second time, more recently, simply because I’m not able to be home enough, and wasn’t giving her regular doses of her medication.   She’s currently on cisapride (once daily) and lactulose (3 times daily).  I did have my vet tell me that he prefers Miralax (an over the counter laxative for humans) to the lactulose, which is much cheaper.  She needs the medication to keep her bowel moving and her stools loose enough to pass.  The hardest part of her condition, hands down, is that is accidentally leaks pee from time to time.  She’s so smart, and has learned to sit on her towels, but it’s still a factor.  Lucy also HATES drinking water, I bought her an electric cat watering fountain, and she was offended that I put a robot in her feeding area!  So, my solution to this has been to add enough water to her breakfast and dinner, essentially making her meals into soup and forcing water into her little body.  She’s on a raw food diet, I buy frozen “sliders” of raw chicken from Meat, a store here in Portland.  It costs me about $25 a month.   I don’t know if the raw food is essential to her health, but I do know it made it much easier to make a soupy meal that she would eat.

Tiffa Collage

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

Have you ever been to the pyramids of Giza? If you have, you may have seen my ancestors. Hi, my name is Tiffa, short for Latifa which means delicate. I am certainly the cat’s meow. Why? Well, I love to “talk” like a Siamese cat. You see, my genes are from the original cats of Asia. I am a Mau, an Arabian Mau to be exact. My ancestors were the ones who inspired the great sphinx monuments. I may not have been around during Cleopatra’s times but I can assure you that I would have certainly been chosen as one of her palace feline companions. For that reason, I have a very queen-like personality. I definitely prefer to be the only feline queen of the house. I love to cuddle on your lap or somewhere just near you. I will purr away those cold nights. When you get home, I will come and greet you by the door, weave around your legs and even run around to show you how happy I am you are home. I promise I won’t smother you. Like most cats, I enjoy my time alone too. I do have my Diva moments but they won’t last long. A girl has gotta keep up appearances for her fans and the paparazzi. Speaking of appearances, have you noticed my beautiful green eyes or unique tortoise shell markings? Prim and proper is how all ancient goddesses should be. Please contact the email below if you believe we can be companions throughout time. One look into my mesmerizing eyes and you can feel the ancient blood of revered idols running through me. Tiffa is five and half years old. She is up to date on her shots, rabies, neutered and micro-chipped. She is literally the perfect cat. She has meticulous litter box habits. She is easy-going with human companions. She is just as playful as a younger cat and she loves to cuddle. She purrs like a Harley too.

OC

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

Hi! My name is Orange Cat, but you can call me OC for short. I am looking for my forever home. I am so sweet that my foster parents wish they could keep me, but have three rambunctious cats already! I am bout 13 years old and was just given a clean bill of health by my vet except for an overactive thyroid, but I am great at taking my daily medication. In fact, I am great at a lot of things, including cuddles, playing with puff balls, and making sure I am always by your side. I like to think of myself as a lap cat, and would rather not be anywhere else than snuggled up with you! I love all people, but I do not really get along with other animals, so I would like to be an only cat. I think I would be perfect for a calm household with people who want lots of affection and attention from their feline. And I don’t mean to brag, but I am pretty cute too! Oh, and I come with all of my things like litter box, food dishes, and wet food.  If you are interested in meeting me (and I hope you are!) please contact my foster mom, Kellie Collins at 503-705-3009 or by email, kell8503@yahoo.com. I hope to see you soon!
