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.

Mike W

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

Our dear Mike Wasowski was rescued a couple of months ago during one of our sterilizations campaigns in Puerto Rico. Our volunteers couldn’t leave him because he was limping and had a bad eye. He has been healing and we discovered that Mike loves toys and is full of love. Mike is in foster care with two dog sisters, and he is learning to be house-trained and walking on leash. His foster mom says he is an angel and loves him dearly. Mike is active and loves to play. He also loves children.

Mike is male, around five years and weighs 13 pounds. He was treated for heartworms, he only has three legs (but he doesn’t notice it)and can’t see in one eye. Foster mom says he behaves like a healthy dog and he even jumps higher than her other two dogs that have four legs.  For more information contact Ursula at adoptions@pranimals.org.

Jack

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

Jack is a lovely lady with beautiful soft white fur with dark ears and tail.   She is 6 years old and a real love. Unfortunately, my current move does not allow cats and I am looking to find her a new forever home as soon as possible.
Jack is an extrovert, very curious and communicative. She will help you write  an email and tell you what’s on her mind.
She has a cute pink nose. A water lover from an early age, she may peek around the shower curtain to inquire about joining you for a rinse.
Jack loves to cuddle and can often be found napping at the foot of her human’s bed.
Even though she is socialized with both cats and dogs, she would prefer to be an only.   Jack is happiest when able to be both inside and outside.
She is spayed and up to date with all shots.

Clara

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

Hello! I’m Clara, I’m less than 2 y/o and I’d love to be a part of your family! The only one I knew passed away and I was left behind with my mom and my brother. My mom went to her forever home and my brother was rescued, but why was I left behind? I know my foster mom really cares about me but she has a baby and works full time and is sad that she can’t give me as much time as she’d like to. I’m really great with other dogs of all sizes as long as I have some time to adjust to your home and I’m already crate trained! I’m not too energetic and I’ll lay down with you when you’re around. At just 40 lbs I’m a pocket sized Pittie and can be right there with you when you are ready to snuggle!    I’m ready to go home with you at no cost for transportation from any state. For more information please contact Salome at  salome_han@sbcglobal.net.

Straymond

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

Hey there!  Last summer I found a stray cat living in the ivy behind my house. At first, he wouldn’t come anywhere near me – but now, he’s ready for a new home!
Straymond’s been working hard to achieve his B.F. (Bachelor of Felines) with a major in Totally Socialized Cat, and he’s ready to show off for you!
He’s conquered the following required courses: Trusting Your Human 101 and 201, Sitting in Laps 101; Purring 101; Advanced Litterbox Use; Undergraduate Seminar in the Benefits of Being Neutered (including daylong field trip to “The Clinic”); and finally the all-important  Gazing  Adoringly at the Human who Feeds You 101.
He is currently working on his final project in Trusting All Humans 101 so he will be ready for YOU (or someone you know) to adopt him soon! Please share this post just in case you have a friend or relative who needs an affectionate little friend – I will drive this little guy to his new home anywhere in Oregon if need be, and would even consider bringing him to Washington, California, Idaho or Nevada!
Note: Straymond is an older cat (about 8 – 10 years old) and is FIV+, so he would need to live indoors and either be the only cat in the household or live with other FIV+ cats.  Information about FIV+ cats can be found here (it’s not a death sentence!):  http://www.vet.cornell.edu/fhc/health_information/brochure_fiv.cfm
If you or someone you know is interested in adopting this very sweet, very affectionate little guy, please contact me soon atyo_megs@yahoo.com

Sophie

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

Sophie, the Black and Tan Coonhound, is funny and playful and adaptable, and loves everyone she meets. Strangers always ask how old our “puppy” is…and she is almost six years old. She loves to play, and develops great games with anyone that will participate. She has lived with a small cat her entire life, and loves her dog brother. She hasn’t lived with children, but she has met a few. She is high energy, but seems to know to be gentle with children. She is incredibly intuitive, and will know when you’re sad. She also has an amazing sense of humor. She loves to play chase, and loves toys, especially fuzzy ones and solid rubber balls.
She does not get along with female dogs, and prefers to be the boss when playing with other dogs. She is a HOUND, so she stubbornly follows her nose on walks…and in the backyard…and onto the counter-top…and to your clothes and hair when you return home. She does have food allergies and will lose her fur if she eats things that disagree with her. We have found the perfect food for her, after trying dozens, so whoever adopts her will have to budget for the right dog food. Otherwise, she is perfectly healthy, spayed, and up to date on all vaccinations and flea and tick preventative. She is tall, slim 43 pounds. She is fully house-trained, knows basic commands and gives a flawless high five.
Key points: Sophie ABSOLUTELY must go to a home without other female dogs, and she would be an ideal single dog. She needs a yard to run around and to sunbathe in (it’s her favorite thing in the entire world), and the yard must have a completely secure fence. She is an escape artist, and you must be willing to watch her when she is outside. A perfect adopter would have experience with hounds, especially the high-energy sort. Sophie can be vocal, and while she does not quite reach Beagle pitch, she has a very unique sound (think funny seal noises). Sophie will snuggle with the best of them and is happy to sleep in with you, but she must live with someone that is active.  We want to find Sophie the perfect match, and are happy to wait as long as we have to to do so. She will know it, and we trust that she will make someone very happy.
