Four years ago last month, A Tonk's Tail began.

Some of you have been with us from the beginning, as we took our first fledgling steps on this digital canvas. You were with us when Allie came into our lives, and you were there when we lost Ryker so very suddenly.

Thank you.

You shared our joy as two six month old blue-eyed terrors charmed their way into our lives, and my personal terror they'd be named after elementary particles!

Some of you joined us more recently, and together we've enjoyed moments of mischief and mayhem, of laughter and learning and love.

Thank you.

This year alone we've had the joy of bringing before you almost 100 Waifs and Shelter Sweeties. Over 90 of these have found forever families, and we know that a large part of this has been because of you. You cared, and you shared. And we are forever grateful.

We're humbled and amazed at the strength and compassion of the community of animal advocates, a community that spans the globe.

Thank you. 

We want you to know how very thankful we are -- for your friendship, your warm and funny comments, your fellowship and support.

We wouldn't be here if it weren't for you.
So, from all of us to all of you:

 You have until 11:59 PM, Dec 2nd to enter.

Wordless Dreams

:::: tiptoeing away :::: 


Wednesday's Waif: Reddington

"Good day, ladies. Gentlemen. They call me The Professor."

"They say I'm rather a recondite feline. I can tell you I'm most certainly a particular and refined sort. And when one dedicates one's life to the study of all things erudite, well, one doesn't suffer fools easily, now. Agreed?

So yes, I've been known to be rather short with some of the more fluff-brained felines around here. But then again, I have my standards.

I also have a facebook page where I expound periodically. Would you like to see a few of my more memorable comments?"

"Ah yes. Seldovia. *shakes head* That was one of my more trying moments here at the shelter.

Why yes, I'm a resident here at Wayside. Temporary, I assure you. It just remains to be seen who might be the one human found to be the most perfect match for me.

Are you strong of heart? Then we just might suit.

Ask for the Professor when you stop by.

Distinguished purrs,
Reddington, Esq."

This intriguing and most notable feline is available for adoption at Allie's Alma Mater, Wayside Waifs. And you can find him here on Facebook!
