Black and tuxedo cats, kittens just $30
Pettales: All the bark from Pets Lifeline
Howdy Sonoma! Are you ready for the month of love? We are officially proclaiming February the month of unconditional love. The kind you can only get from your pet – that cuddly best friend who is always there when you get home, hanging on your every word and just wanting to be with you and only you. Good mood, bad mood, sick, healthy, it doesn’t matter to them, just as long as you’re there.
We are still celebrating our Start Your New Year in the Black special with all black and tuxedo cats and kittens only $30. Check out our Facebook page at Pets Lifeline Sonoma Valley to see the daily featured kitties. We definitely have some beauts!
Cindy, Carlos, Raider, Iggy, Brenna, Hamilton, Frosty, Gucci, Rudolph and Dr. Claw (don’t let the name fool you) are all solid black love bugs. Our tuxedos Willie, Checkers, Precious, Russell, Dun and Bradstreet are the cutest things. I have a tuxedo at home named Cowboy that I just love looking at. He’s velvety soft, mostly white with a black mask and ears and black polka dots. If you are looking for a cat to warm your heart, don’t let these little darlings spend another day in the shelter.
And did you know the best way to motivate yourself to be physically active after age 40 is to adopt a dog? That’s right! In a recent Canadian study of people up to age 80, dog owners were found to walk about 300 minutes a week, almost twice as many as those without a canine. The dog owners were also significantly more likely to follow through on an “intention” to walk, because who could say no to that face?
We suddenly found ourselves with empty kennels as we have been adopting out a good number of dogs on a regular basis. When that happens, we often will go up to Sonoma County Animal Care and Control and take as many as we can. They are always filled to the brim with wonderful dogs. Last Thursday, we brought five dogs into Pets Lifeline and we only have three medium and larger breed dogs left we’d love for y’all to meet. There’s Scarlet, a 3-year-old beautiful and very energetic blond lab mix; Dakota, a cute as a button bundle of joy, tri-color border collie mix; and Charlie, a very handsome and loveable 4-year-old German shepherd. And those are just the new dogs, we also have Tabitha, a precious white poodly mix; Chocolate, a cocker spaniel mix with gorgeous amber eyes; Sanford and Gibbs, both rust colored Chihuahua mixes; and Bear, a cute little black/brown chi mix.
I am a firm believer in the philosophy that dogs and cats are our spiritual guides and soul companions. After all, God spelled backwards is? Coincidence? I think not. Whether we are a family, a couple or a single person, having an animal in our household keeps us grounded in the here and now. As I started this article I will finish with the thought that our pets don’t really ask much of us materially, but what they give back is infinite and unconditional. In our fast paced, technological and cyber world that has got to count for something.
Remember to keep your heart open in all you do and you will be surprised at what happens. With tail wags and purrs, I bid you adieu.
