*MICHAH IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CALL WILLOW AT 815-351-0201 IF INTERESTED IN HER ADOPTION*

Hello! My lovely cat Michah (pronounced Micah just with an extra h) is needing to find his forever home. Due to some issues between animals and extensive attempts to make him feel comfortable at home over the past year I have made the very hard decision that he needs a different home environment. Before me his owner was an older woman who he adored but unfortunately she could no longer care for him. Michah is a handsome siamese cat that is approximately 7 years old (rough estimate). He loves guided play with his favorite toy and to be pet while he cuddles up to you. 

If you are interested please contact me! My cellphone is 815-351-0201 🙂 Much more details below. Feel free to share if you know someone who might be a good fit!

Michah’s Personality

  • Very calm

  • Loving

  • Talkative (haha)

  • Sweet and gentle

Michah’s ideal home

  • Quieter home without other dogs/cats

  • Owner who is home often and wants a companion to be around

  • Is able to get lots of attention including pets and has the ability to play with him

  • Someone who does not mind a Siamese talkativeness

Michah’s medical notes

  • Up to date on vaccines (needs a rabies booster in September)

  • Recent vet visit with blood work that all seems good

  • Has some GI issues which requires a specific food to prevent constipation and vomiting

  • Overall healthy 🙂

  • He has a vet that has helped through the stomach issues. He also is on a health plan at this vet that has been paid for the next year which gets him discounted visits and testing. 

Michah’s included amenities

  • Litter box (I have 2 so he could come with both!)

  • Litter box mat

  • Brush

  • Cling on window ledge so he can sunbathe

  • His favorite toys

  • His prescription food (a month’s worth so you have time to order more!)

  • Bowls

  • Blanket with his scent

  • Cat tree (optional!)

  • Vet service – discounted visits, tests, and whatnot for the next year

Gus

*GUS IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CONTACT HOLLY AT genericholly@gmail.com IF INTERESTED IN HIS ADOPTION*

Meet Gus. He’s a neutered male. His exact age is unknown but my vet estimated him at right around a year old when I took him in for an exam last month. My vet says he’s in good health, no FIV, no parasites, and he’s now at a healthy weight thanks to a better diet and lots of treats.
 
He came to me via a neighborhood cat person, who in turn got him from someone living in one of the nearby camps who said they “found” him on the street. He had no chip or collar. She took him to the Feral Cat Coalition to be neutered and cleaned up but it was pretty obvious that he hadn’t been a street cat his whole life and he seemed to like people. So she decided to try and find him a home rather than just sending him back to the street life, and since I had just lost my elderly cat I happened to be in a position to take him in as a “foster and we’ll see how it goes.”
 
He’s a lovely floofy boy with a magnificent tail and a wonderful purr. He’s got lots of energy and he loves toys – his favorite is a rainbow streamer on a stick. He enjoys watching squirrels out my front window and getting ear scratches. He needs work on manners (I’m working on redirecting him when his play gets too bitey) but I think some of that will just come too with age and more people contact. He’s not a lap cat really but he loves to be near me and give him head butts while I work. He’s very curious about whatever I’m doing and will frequently make appearances on my work Zoom calls.
 
Unfortunately, he and my other cat just don’t get along. I introduced them gradually but it just hasn’t gone well – they’re fine as long as one of them is in a carrier, but if one of them is not contained it immediately turns into a  fight. Beaker spent some time as a street cat as well, and it’s almost as though they activate each other’s need to fight over turf. They’re both friendly, personable cats on their own, but I think it’s time to find Gus a more compatible home.
 
It’s possible he might do best in a single cat household – but I think it’s not impossible that he’d be okay in a house with other cats that have the right temperament. I don’t think he’d be a good fit for a household with small children but an older child that respects his boundaries would probably be okay. 
 
If you’re interested in meeting him, please get in touch at genericholly@gmail.com.

*MOOSE IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; IF INTERESTED IN ADOPTION PLEASE CONTACT THAI AT Curtis.thai@gmail.com*

Moose is a 3 year old bloodhound coonhound mix.
For the most part moose is a fairly calm dog, she tends to match the mood, when you’re calm she naps and cuddles but if you want to go camping and throw a stick she’ll be more than happy to join. She’s decently food motivated which makes training new things quite easy although sometimes she finds it hard to contain her excitement. Moose enjoys being involved in things, so anyone who wants a companion to go out and about or even just to lay around the house with, moose would be the perfect fit.
She has absolutely no aggression towards anything I’ve seen, so she’d be perfect for a family dog, or an only dog.

Email Thai at Curtis.thai@gmail.com if interested in adopting Moose.

My name is Beethoven and I am an adorable and super affectionate 3 yo all white kitty. I am all about the pets, love, and attention from my human friends! In fact, when you hit the right spot, it’s “Roll over Beethoven” time, as I position myself just right for optimal petting. I am pretty chill guy who can usually be found napping in all types of silly positions, from upside down to curled up with paws over my nose. I am not a huge fan of other kitties or dogs, so I would be best as the only pet in the home. I am just very much a people cat and always down for snuggles, and making biscuits on your lap! Since I am an all white kitty and slightly hearing impaired, I will always need to be an indoor kitty. Which is just fine by me as I would much rather be curled up on the couch with you than go outside. Being a young gent, I sometimes am into play but I am not really high energy, so the game doesn’t last very long. In fact, my forceful head butts always let you know that I am ready for more skritches and attention. Handsome, sweet, and charming, I am ready to start composing my next symphony with you today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and neutered with an adoption fee of $100.

*THIS CAT IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY, PLEASE CONTACT ELENI AT lazarou@umich.edu*

Bubba is a cuddly big boy! We met on the sidewalk where he meowed and came right to me and let me carry him all the way home; he has been giving leg rubs, lap snuggles and purrs ever since. We have searched and searched, but Bubba has no family claiming him. Bubba is a healthy boy and will be up to date on vaccinations and microchipped before he gets adopted. Bubba is energetic and curious, likes to play and would likely do well as an indoor/outdoor pet if the neighborhood was suited. Bubba is polydactyl on his front paws (cute little mittens!), and will need special attention to nail grooming to avoid ingrown nails. Bubba can get anxious around my kitty and dogs, and reacts with the typical “hsss”. Even when hissy, Bubba welcomes being pet and is not easily upset with humans. He has gone through a lot of changes in a short time span, so it is unclear if he would do best in a home where he is the only pet (maybe to begin with to adjust to home living). Bubba is comfortable with people and likes to be pet from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail! He loves to chit chat, and will respond if spoken to. Bubba deserves a loving home, space to roam, active play time and someone who can be patient with his transition from living outside on his own. Please email lazarou@umich.edu if interested in Bubba!

*THIS DOG IS NOT BEING RE-HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST ONLY; PLEASE CONTACT LIAM AT liamwoods1@gmail.com *

Seeking the right home for my dog “Goose.” He’s a well trained 4 year old Labradoodle. He’s a mellow guy and will sleep next to you on the couch or floor for most of the day. He does like to cuddle and will fall asleep with his head on your lap or gleefully sleep in your bed if that’s allowed. I don’t let him in my bed so no pressure there, but friends do and he loves it. Goose does weigh about 80 lbs, so he’s on the large side. He’s 3/4 poodle 1/4 lab (F1B), neutered, not a chewer or digger, is well house trained, he is trained to only poop in one gravel area behind my house and not on the lawn (so that’s an options for others), he’s also trained to pull you on a skateboard if you are crazy in the same way I am… thought that’s kind of an experts only situation:)
 
He does sometimes pull the leash on walks, but is a quick learner when it comes to training.
 
 He is very interested in cats but is not used to them since I do not have one and strangely none of my friends do either. I don’t think a house with a cat would be ideal. He loves the dogs he knows well but depending on the dog, he needs to meet new dogs slowly. He loves to play fetch. He’s also very good off leash on hikes. He is used to road trips, camping, hiking, etc… he’s been everywhere with me.
 
I’m not open to him living anywhere without a yard or property, or with anyone who’s work would leave him alone 9-5, sorry! He would do well with a family with kids above age 12 or so (he is a lot of klutzy excitable dog for the very little ones). He does do fine at home alone, I can leave him for 12 hours, I just rarely ever do that because it’s probably a bummer for him and I assume he really has to pee… A family or couple would be good, with a yard or property, or someone really devoted to dogs.
 
Goose had a professional assessment from a dog trainer today and this is what she said.
 
“I think Goose would do best in a home with no other dogs or a very confident female dog without fear or guarding issues. I would say no cats and children 12 and up. I think that the environment you’re looking for should be supportive to him not practicing barrier reactivity so watch for big windows and fences without visual barriers that are along spots with heavy foot traffic. I think someone who likes to hike and someone who has the means and the interest in continuing gooses training specifically focusing on his arousal/ reactivity while on leash and initially when greeting dogs. I would recommend in lieu of an adoption fee you request that the new owner complete two or three private training sessions.
 
He just needs the right environment to be happy and I can’t provide it. Basically he gets very excited and comes in a hot with new dogs, especially on leash. He does some resource guarding and barrier aggression (barking through fences). I’ll give anyone with interest lots more info.
 
My life has become extremely complicated with the pandemic closing my biz, illness in my family, and other complications that are not about Goose. I will not have the stability in the next few years to care for him and it’s not fair to him. This guy has been very well loved as I’ve had him since he was a pup and now my life has changed in ways that I need to embrace. It’s heartbreaking to try to find him another family but after agonizing about it for ages it’s finally time. I won’t be able to give him the home that he needs for years to come.
 
Please reach out or forward this to a friend if it sounds appealing. He could make someone very happy and be a great companion. Please let me know a bit about yourself and your living situation if you are interested by sending an email to liamwoods1@gmail.com

Sweet, affectionate, and full of snuggles, my name is Lilly and I am 12 year old Rat Terrier mix. Weighing in at 13 lbs, I am a petite lady with a giant heart bursting with love that I am ready to share with that special family. As you can see, I am pretty much fully blind, but my foster mom says I navigate really well and even have mastered the two steps that go into the yard. Even though I am pretty adaptable, having to move around a lot or into different rentals would be too much for me  since I would need to keep learning new layouts, so a stable living situation in a house would be my ideal retirement home. I am a pretty laid back gal who is fairly independent but still am always happy to snuggle by your side. I especially love to “burrito” into the blankets, which is where you can find me most of the day. Unless it is a sunny day, and then you can find me sunbathing out in the backyard. Even though I am always down for pets, because I can’t see, I can get startled sometimes and so an adult only home would be best. My foster says that I do really enjoy my walks, especially in a bit quieter neighborhood versus downtown. I have met other dogs and am currently residing with one in my foster, so a mellow dog who will respect my space would be ok. But I perfectly happy being your only pet companion too! My foster says that I am her favorite foster yet, but shhh. Don’t tell her I told you that! If you are looking for an easy going and calm pup who is eager to be your companion, well I am your gal! Fill out an application so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, microchipped, spayed with an up to date dental cleaning and bloodwork and an adoption fee of $350.
