Kage (pronounced Kah-Gay and means Shadow in Japanese) is a wonderfully
affectionate kitten who is about 5 months old. Being pure black, his
name is very fitting. Kage is very playful, but a little bit shy at first.
When he tuckers himself out playing he will jump up on your chair, or the
sofa, and curl up around your legs waiting for you to rub his ears, making
him a great lap cat. Kage will also curl up right next to you during the
night. He will also let you know when he wants affection by putting his
nose in your ear and purring. He likes to know his human is close by when
sleeping. Kage’s favorite things are: anything that moves on the floor,
dinner time, the empty bathtub (he will crawl into the tub and lay there),
and snuggling. Kage is current on all his vaccinations and has been
neutered. His records can be verified at Planned Pethood in Harriman.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to meet Kage.

Seishin (pronounced Sigh-sheen and means Spirit in Japanese) is a
boisterous and playful kitten. He appears to have Russian Blue in his
bloodline and looks the part. Seishin will dance between your feet,
chase anything you’re willing to throw, and pounce on his brother,
Kage, at every opportunity. Seishin is very inquisitive and will dig
his way into things to learn what’s there. He will run over, under,
or around anything; will climb as high as he can get, and then will
come and let you tell him how proud you are while you lavish him with
petting and scratching behind his ears. Being as affectionate as he
is, he loves to sit on you while you pet him, making him a great lap
cat, and will also crawl into bed with you at night. His favorite
things are: food, treats, and ping pong balls. Seishin is current
on all his vaccinations and has been neutered. His records can be
verified at Planned Pethood in Harriman. Please email
email@example.com if you would like to meet Seishin.

MICHAEL and MOOSE
Michael and Moose, yellow tabby cats, were rescued with two other kittens
in December 2018, when their mother was hit by a car. Unfortunately
she did not survive, but the kittens needed a nursing mother.
Thankfully, the rescuer had one who allowed them to join in. They were
neutered and vaccinated in April 2019, and they just turned one year old.
They are loving kitties, living in a home with lots of rescue cats and
dogs. They are crazy about dogs! These social and loving boys are in
search of homes of their very own. They think foster care is for the
birds at this point! Anyone interested should contact Mitzi 865-659-8153.

Elvis is a 4-year-old, male, neutered, handsome, orange-and-white boy.
He is huge at 14 pounds and plays like a kitten. He loves feather toys
and laser pointer! He also loves his wet food, thus he is a little
rounder than when he came in to foster. He loves to cuddle and sleep
with you whether in your lap or in bed. Elvis spent his early life as
an outdoor Tom cat and during this time he picked up FIV. This doesn’t
really change anything for him, other than that he should live indoors
and have any infections treated quickly. Currently he is living with a
young female cat who is FIV-negative, and they play like crazy! He is
awesome in my opinion. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are
interested in Elvis.

Waylon is a 2-year-old, male, neutered, flame-point Siamese. He is
my subdued foster and about as cross-eyed as can be. He took a minute
to come out of his shell but now rubs between my legs and wants
attention. I can easily pick him up to hold him. He goes into "hide
mode" and will get nervous when backed into a corner. He is a
beautiful guy who does well with other cats. I suspect, once settled,
he may turn into a lap cat. Please email email@example.com if
you are interested in Waylon.

Loretta Lynn is a gorgeous dilute tortoiseshell cat. Her fur is soft
as silk and her purr is fabulous! She just finished all her veterinary
care, which included a full dental cleaning with a few extractions. She
is a healthy girl for her 7 years old. Loretta Lynn loves to cuddle and
sleep with you in bed and she loves attention. While Loretta will
tolerate a cat coming in her room, she really prefers not be bothered by
other cats and would do best as a solo cat or living with dogs only.
Loretta Lynn came from an outdoor life outside of a hotel. She is
FIV-positive, but this doesn’t slow her down in the least. Her blood
work is even purrfect! Loretta Lynn is looking for her furrever home
where she can enjoy life to the fullest and has someone to appreciate
her sweet and spunky personality. Dilute torti cats are the best!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in Loretta Lynn.

Penny, a sweet abandoned beagle, needs a home. She is up to date
on shots, spayed, and is now on monthly heartworm preventative.
She is currently on antibiotics for a tick-borne illness. She is 6-8
years old. Penny loves people and gets along well with other dogs,
but she shows a little dislike toward larger female dogs. She is
overweight but is slowly losing pounds since being put on a normal
diet. She isn’t totally housetrained, so a good fenced yard is a must.
This dog loves being indoors with you and sleeping on a big dog
pillow next to your bed. Contact number is (865)599-9028.

Happy Tails -- Pets Adopted or Pending
Simon is an amazing long-haired grey boy. He is a giant fellow at 13
pounds and has feet to match. Maybe a little Maine coon in there? This
big guy is just a lover who wants attention like crazy! Simon loves to
play as well and loves wands and jingle balls. He will seek you out
for attention and has a great lap-cat personality. He is fully vaccinated,
neutered and tested and ready for his forever home. Simon does great with
dogs and tends to play a little rough. He may do quite well with other
cats if they are big and want to play and tackle. He is a little too much
for more mellow cats. Simon has a beautiful meow and purr. He wants
attention and would be an enthusiastic lap-cat. This handsome fellow
needs his furrever home! Please email email@example.com if you
are interested in Simon.

MEG and BETH
Of the four female kittens that were looking for homes, two tuxedos
have been adopted. They were the daughters of a stray mom. The other
two females, as well as a brother and the mom, have been taken in by SARG.
Charlie loves to play in his water bowl and loves to watch the birds,
squirrels, and deer through the window. The few times I have introduced
my dogs to him he hasn't reacted well -- he hides or swats at them if
he doesn't want to move. In winter he snuggles under the blankets, but
in the summer he stretches out on my floor in the bathroom. Laser
pointers are the best workout for him, but his poochy butt only runs
for a little bit then just lies there. He's so much more expressive
now than he was when I first met him in April, 2018. He knows which
vehicle is whose, and he meets me at the door meowing and chuffing
about his day. It's going to hurt saying goodbye to him, but my husband
cannot continue his allergic reactions as he has been. Charlie is neutered
and, to my knowledge, he was up to date on his shots, and he is on a

Hi, My name is Rocco. I am a 12-18-month-old, neutered white German
shepherd mix. I weigh 52 pounds. I am heartworm-negative and have had
all my shots. I get along well with my 5 foster brother and sisters,
except for that little one that keeps picking on me. I would be good as
a single dog or with other calm, submissive dogs. I haven't seen a cat
yet, but I would assume one pop on the nose, and he/she would have my
respect. I get along well with children, men and women. I do still jump
up, but I'm trying to learn not to do that. I am very lovable and will
follow you around the house like your shadow. I walk well on a leash,
come when called, but when I am chasing a squirrel that coming thing is
a challenge, but I'm working on it. I am not a runner. As I said, I need
to keep you in my sights at all times. I am housetrained, and very food
motivated, so I will be easy to train. I already know sit! I have about
a medium energy level and love to go for walks. I have an old femur
fracture that has healed completely. It makes my left back leg shorter
than the right, but it doesn't hamper me one bit. The doc said it should
never cause me any problems.
