Please Help! A New Home for Handsome Griffin! (Seattle Area)

Hi Pals! Today I am joining a blog hop for Senior Pet Month in honor of my pal Griffin! He is a handsome orange longhair kitty living in Seattle, who just happens to be 13 years old!  Sadly, he needs a new home because his owner has Stage IV cancer, so we are spreading the word! Please share this post, especially with anyone who lives in the Seattle area and might be able to adopt Griffin! 

Senior cats make great pets and can be a lot easier to live with than feisty kittens. And hey, indoor cats like Griffin (and me!) can live to be 20 or even older! According to his mom, Griffin is in ‘perfect health’ and you’d never know he’s 13 from looking at him. He has great silky fur for petting.

Here’s a picture of Griffin with his sister Ella (she has already found a new home-woohoomeow!) Griffin is the orange cat in the photo.

image

Here’s a little more information about Griffin, from his mom:
“Griffin is a fluffy, opinionated, sensitive orange tabby male, 13-years-old.  I got Griffin as a tiny foster kitten at 4 weeks old and he’s pretty attached.  Griffin prefers routine and would probably be best as an only cat.  He’s fine around dogs as long as they don’t try to eat him.  His favorite thing is to curl up next to my pillow, purr, and suck his thumb.  Yes, seriously.  It’s adorable.  Full disclosure – when Griffin is mad at me, he poops in my bathtub.  Could be worse!

Can anyone out there help me by providing a home for my furry baby?  It would be such a kindness to me if someone could take him in and provide me with peace of mind that he will be loved even after I’m gone.”

Although he has lived with his sister before, Griffin ‘s mom says he would actually prefer to be an only cat – he LOVES having all of his mom’s attention! Griffin is neutered and microchipped.  He is an indoor-only cat.  His mom has had Griffin his whole life and will be happy to discuss his medical history with his new family.

Please contact me either on twitter (@gromekcat) or by email (gromekcat (at) gmail [dot] com) if you or someone you know if interested in adopting Griffin, and we will put you in touch with his mom!

There is also a post about Griffin on "Where Pets Are Found" which you can easily share on all your social media sites!

Am I an American Now?

Dwayne baboon here! I had my first July Fourth in the USA this week! It’s a big holiday here, and we went to the river to have a picnic, listen to a concert, and watch fireworks, wow! 

Here’s me by the Charles River in Cambridge. Can you see the landmark Citgo sign (with the triangle logo) in the background?

Here I am looking across the river at the Prudential Building. Or, the ‘Pru’ as the locals say! 

Here I am, sitting in my seat Listening to the Boston Pops concert! Yay!

During the concert, I set up my camera and tripod for the fireworks show!

I had a lovely lemonade, too.

Now it’s time for dinner. What? This isn’t how I’m supposed to eat my sandwich?

After dinner and the concert, it got dark and the firework began! Everyone clapped and cheered. The fireworks were spectacular! Here are some photos I took. Enjoy and Happy Fourth everyone!

Dwayne’s Cape Cod Adventure

Hi Pals! Dwayne Baboon is gonna guest post today. I am busy playin’ on my NEW CAT TREE!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dwayne Baboon here! I had da coolest adventure last weekend! My hooman companions took me to a place called Cape Cod! It’s a bit of land that sticks out into the ocean from southern Massachusetts. It’s pretty cool because it has beaches on both sides! The first place we went was Provincetown, where we walked out onto the this looooong rock breakwater to take a look at that lighthouse in the distance. See it, on the right? 

image

That was late the first evening. Then we grabbed some noms-too tired to remember to take pics of them-and went back to the motel for sleeps. zzzzz

Da next morning my human companions rented BIKES! We rode (well, I hitchhiked in the backpack) out to the nearest beach on the ocean side of the Cape in Eastham: The beach was called Coast Guard Beach and it’s part of the national seashore. I sat and watched humans wading out into the water. It looked cold! image

We waded out a little-yep, it was cold water! The water was shallow for a ways out, see? There were some small dunes behind me, too! They looked interesting but you’re not allowed to walk on them because of nesting birds.

image

Oh yeah-nearly forgot. We found an inchworm (crawling on the lady human!) and had to carry it back to the dunes. But not until I checked it out closely first! I love wildlife!

image

Then we biked up the coast a little ways to see Nauset Light. It’s cool a working lighthouse. I love the colors. It’s famous, because it’s on the logo on the bags of Cape Cod potato chips. Yummy!

image

After we biked around a little more we went for lunch at a place called the Friendly Fisherman. I had the lady human take my photo in the little playground behind. 

image

 

And then we ate! I had fish and chips, yum! 

image

After lunch we biked out to one of the beaches on the bay side of the cape. Tide was coming in and guess what: we saw HORSESHOE CRABS! The lady human says they look like refugees from another planet! Or else from the distant past. LOL!

image

After that we biked back to the motel and then went to see a drive-in movie! It was cool watchihng a movie from the car!


The next day was the last day. We went to another bay beach at low tide and saw LOTS of critters. Look, a little crab!

image

 

The black dots here are SNAILS! Tons and tons of em! And there’s some kind of shellfish off in the distance too. We saw hermit crabs, too!

image

I had an accident at that beach-I fell out of the lady human’s bag and into the water! oh no! It’s OK, though, I dried out in the car.

 

Then we drove to a town called Chatham and walked around. There was an art exhibit going on called “Sharks in the Park” with lots of shark shapes decorated by artists.image

We went to a beach with a marshy area, and saw lots of birds. image

 

And then we went to one final beach with cool tall dunes. I watched the waves for a while.

image

image

image

I was tired and cold so I rode in the lady humans jacket pocket on the way back to the car. 

image

And then we drove back home. What an adventure!

Thanks Bissel, Blogpaws and Pet360!

Woohoomeow, we just received our BEAUTIFUL new Bissel Total Floors Pet Vacuum that we won at a #blogpawty last year!! Yay!!

It came in the mail in a big box that made a pawsome perch! 

image

image

I inspected the box thoroughly! 

image

Then I opened it-all by myself!

image

image

image

image

Dad pulled it out of the box-don’t worry, folks, he was closely supervised!

image

I helped dad put it together.

image

Then I inspected it when it was all done. It looks pawsome!

image

image

And yes, I let brofur Peanut inspect it too.

image image

Of course, this was my FAVORITE part of it!

image

image

Mom likes the vacuum best, though-it’s got loads of tools and they all attach to the vacuum for easy storage. She can’t wait to try it out! Thanks Bissel, Blogpaws and Pet360 for the pawty and prizes!!

Happy Kitties!

One last update on the Bideawee front, pals! Our modkicker donation has been received!! Here are some of the cool colors that they got:

One of the Bideawee shelter staff also sent this photo via Auntie Vet. This is one of the ‘office foster’ cats enjoying a new modkicker! Looks like he’s having fun!

Thank you all again! Don’t forget to support Bideawee!

Touchdown for da Kitties!

Hi Pals!

We have a VERY exciting announcement for you! With your help, your RTs and donations we have raised a total of $124!! Wow! That’s enough to take advantage of the ‘donate and double’ promotion at Hauspanther’s etsy shop. We just ordered a set of 20 modkicker toys to be sent directly to Bideawee’s Manhattan shelter, and Hauspanther will send double the amount - 40 modkickers for the Bideawee kitties! Wow! AND because we got more than our goal, we were able to add a few of the large modkickers and some modshakers to our order!

We know the cats of Bideawee will have hours and hours of fun with these toys while they await their forever homes! We can’t believe we did this all in just 2 days, what an amazing feet! (Er, feat, that is!)
image
 

Bideawee is a wonderful shelter, and they rescue so many cats and dogs! If you live in New York and want to check them out in person, they have an adoption center and hospital at  410 East 38th Street (between First Ave and the FDR)If you are interested in doing more to help Bideawee, they always need donations of toys and blankets, and plenty ‘junk food’ for the pickier cats! They need plenty of volunteers. You can ‘like’ them on Facebook and help share posts about adoptable animals. And of course they can always use donations of money. Check out their donations page. 
Thanks again for all of your help, pals!
UPDATE! Mom just got a message back from the Hauspanther shop owner about our order-she will be adding in some extras to our order to help out Bideawee! Woohoo! *jumping up and down* Be sure to check out Hauspanther on etsy and on the Hauspanther website!
