Thursday's Purrs: Sweetie

"Oh, hi! My name is Sweetie, but you can call me Sassy Pants! Or maybe Sweet Tart?

No, I'm not in the middle of an identity crisis at the tender age of four. I've just acquired a few nicknames around here because of my sweet and sassy attitude!"

"Are you looking for a kitty like me? I'm at Pet Project looking for a new family because the family I was with moved out of the country. That's the bad news. The good news is that I'm an experienced pet-and a wonderful one, too, if I do say so myself. So I'm all set to make your family complete!

I'm got lots of energy! I love to play and explore and just generally stay busy. I'm curious about everything and want to be in the center of the action. (Confession time: if there isn't any action to be found, I've been known to create a little on my own! )

I'm also known for being friendly to everybody. Well, okay, everybody except birds. I even lived with children before and I really liked them because they were so nice to me! I have to admit that I've been known to hunt a bird or two in my day, though, so it would be better for me to stay inside, or go outside only with your supervision. Um, they say it's probably best if you don't already have a pet bird, too .... 

I'm what they call a tree dweller. I like to sleep up high, so it'd be great if you had a tall cat tree or shelf that I could hang out on. Even better if it was near a window so I could keep an eye on all those birds outdoors!

I hope you'll come out to Kansas City Pet Project and meet me soon. I'm so anxious to start being someone's pet once again!

Love, Sweetie"

Sweetie's one of the longest-tenured kitties at KC Pet Project. Let's get her adopted! You can meet her at the Main Campus of KC Pet Project.

Happy Brother's Day


Through thick and thin.

Baff time and headbonks.

Naps and wand toys.

Bonito flakes and --

It's every paw for itself when bonito flakes are around.
Otherwise, we're good.

Happy Brother's Day!

'Toon Tuesdays: It Could Be Worse ...


Toon Tuesdays feature animal (and sometimes human) humor created by the peeps over at Shoebox Greetings (Hallmark approved. Sorta.) - where our mom works, too!

It's Dead, Jim.

Faraday: Uh, Maxie?
I think it'd dead.

Maxwell: What's dead? Your snake?

Faraday: Yeah,  Mister Snakey's dead. I mean, look, Maxie. He's not moving and stuffs.

Maxwell: Are you sure about tha-- LOOK OUT!

Faraday: HALP! It's AFTER me!

(moments later, after the keyboard has been wrestled away from the mom)

Faraday: You'll pay for that, Mommy. I'm not afraid of no snake.


PROOF: Exhibit A. (uh, and B, and C, and ...)
Me, the vishus snake-killer.

Maxwell: *hides head in paw*

Tell me you did not say that to her, dood.
Have you no sense of self-preservation?
Evidently not.

Is that steam we see coming out Allie's ears?
Is that steam we see coming out Allie's ears?
Any takers on what's
about to happen in 3...2... ?

And on Endangered Species Day, no less.
(who knew Faraday would end up on that list?)

Thursday's Purrs: Joseph

"Well, helloooooo, ladies."

"My name is Joseph, and I'm a three year old orange moggie just hanging out, looking for a family to love.

I’m an independent kind of guy, maybe a little shy at first. But just you wait! My feline-ality is Party Animal. So once I warm up to my new surroundings, I’m the life of the party.

I'll be out and about to explore and play, and wowza, do I ever love to play! Let you in on a little secret? I looooove wand toys. A LOT."

(I hear Faraday's got the goods on where to score the best ones, too. So if you have any questions, the fine mancats here as A Tonk's Tale can clue us in. Sound like a plan?) 

"As far as preferences are concerned, I'd do best in a home that has children over the age of 12 who can give me some space when I need it. Other than that, I'm just easy-peasey lemon-squeezy, all the way.

Could I be the kitty for you?
Come down to Wayside and ask to meet me!

Purrs and headbonks,

Joseph's available at Allie's Alma Mater, Wayside Waifs.
