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.

–THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; THESE CATS ARE NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. FOR MORE INFO ON NORA & REN, PLEASE CONTACT DOUG AT THE EMAIL BELOW. PLEASE NOTE: THEY ARE IN THE SEATTLE AREA–

Nora (top left) and her handsome, roly-poly brother Ren (top right) are two 5-year-old kitties that are littermates looking for love! Both of these big tabby kitties are very gentle and playful, and will seek out the attention of humans whenever they can! Ren is a bit of a chunker, and a big boy that will quickly catch your eye with his beautiful silver coat and impressive size. He’s a friendly giant that will often saunter over to say hello, and a very sweet boy that isn’t bothered by much. He’s a dog-like cat that will even play fetch when he’s feeling frisky! His sister Ren is the more active and independent of the two, and likes her naptime as well as her playtime. She might take a little longer to warm up to a new person, but is oh-so cuddly and will bond fiercely when she’s had time to get to know you. Both Nora & Ren are large-bodied cats that always prefer to be nearby but not necessarily in the lap. These sweet, plushy kitties were rescued as kittens together in Tennessee, but were brought to the Northwest after moving from a big house to a tiny apartment, where their owner’s allergies became too much to handle. They are used to being entirely indoors, and would thrive in a larger space to roam around in, though they are not super high energy. Once they are settled in, they are undeterred by most things, including children and dogs, and would make wonderful family pets. They enjoy cuddling together and grooming each other, so would love to find a home where they could stay together. After having already gone through quite a bit of transition in their short lives, they’d love to find a stable home to settle into long term.

Nora & Ren are currently residing with Doug in the Seattle area. If you are interested in learning more about these delightful kitties, please reach out to him at dougiedo.handyman@gmail.com.

Hello! Sissy here, and I am just the silly gal you been waiting for! At around 7-8 years old, I am a hilarious and adorable MinPin mix weighing about 9lbs. When I first came to Pixie, I was a little sad since my owner passed away and was a bit nervous. But as soon as I went into a foster home, I opened up quickly! Especially with the help of my doggy friends. In fact, I have always been around dogs most of my life, and they give me a little confidence boost I need. Plus, having friends to run around with is so much fun, and thus I am really looking for a home with another fur friend. It’s just really helps me adapt to new things to have a pal to follow. I didn’t really seem too interested in the office cat at Pixie, so a dog savvy kitty would be fine. After coming out of my shell, I am quite the energetic lady and even my snuggles start off with a body slam. My foster thinks it is pretty cute and hard to resist, and so she always stops what she is doing to give me more snuggles. I am still a pretty sensitive lady and can take a second to warm up to new people, and would do best in a home with kiddos over 12. When I was at Pixie, I did really seem to enjoy my walks outside and now in my foster home, I really enjoy running around the yard while soaking up the sun. Goofy, sweet, and full of personality, I am ready to play with my family and doggy sibling today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.

Oh. Um. Hi! How are you? Don’t mind my awkward stares. I am a bit of a bashful gal and with me being so gorgeous, everyone tends to stare, so it takes me a second to come out of my shell. At 7 years old and around 26 lbs, not much is known about my breed mix, but they are thinking maybe a Jack Russell mix. Whatever I am, I am pretty darn cute! I am a sensitive lady who is takes time to warm up to new people and new situations. Thus, I am looking for an quiet adult only house a bit out of the busy city environment. I can be picky about my dog friends, but grew up with one my whole life, so a confident male dog in the home who respects my space would be just fine. Or I am happy to be the star of the show too! But I definitely would get overwhelmed at dog parks or busy urban areas and trails, so I am much more of a hang out in the backyard and catch some rays kind of gal. Once I do warm up, I am very affectionate and loving, so a patient home is needed to see me really blossom! I still do have a playful side and when I am not playing with my dog friend I made here at Pixie, I will also play with toys. Mostly those squeaky tennis balls. Those are my favorite! I also go on walks outside and the traffic near downtown is a bit too much, but in a quieter area, I would love to do some jaunts around the block. Sensitive, adorable, and such a sweetie, I am eager to find my forever home today! Fill out an application to set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.
