Meet Ruby (the mumma) and Pearl, a sweet mother-and-daughter duo. These girls are happy and healthy but are shy with humans, so need patience and gentleness. They are currently living in harmony with several other horses, big and small. They are also prone to being a bit too fond of their food, so need to have their weight monitored (as much as they won’t like it!) Ruby is approximately ten years old, and her daughter Pearl around seven. Are Ruby and Pearl your Forever Friends?
To my Forever Parents, My name is Arti, I’m a 12 year old desexed male West Highland Terrier X, meaning I’m very cute! BUT I do have a few issues that need to be maintained going forward: – Someone who is home more often than not as I have separation anxiety (no longer than 2 hours) – Another dog to help him settle when left at short intervals is needed – Ongoing medical attention for arthritis and his ear infections (when eh stresses out these can be the result of that) – Arti is hard of hearing that unfortunately is not selective I’m a young soul and I still enjoy my walks at the dog park as I am quite social. My foster carer says I can’t stay for too long as it make my arthritis play up, but I would stay all day if I could. I also like to sit on the couch with my people as well and have a snuggle and am happy to sit in my bed watching you go about your day. When I came into foster care I was anxious and I didn’t like to be touched, you can’t blame me because I had been an outside dog my whole life, left to my own devices. I had ear infections, a flea infestation with hardly any fur, not desexed and that made me very sad and scared. I didn’t know how to behave with humans, but in the short 5 weeks of being with Forever Friends, I have turned in to a new dog! I have come out of my shell as my foster family have taught me that humans are not that bad, they brag about how far I’ve come in my behaviour, but it’s just me, I’m a great dog! I do have separation anxiety as I’m hard at hearing so my new family needs to be dedicated to put some time, patience and the attention that I need (that can be a lot until I feel safe) so I say again, patience please! Cats and dogs are my friends so if you have other animals, that would be best! Love, Arti.
Are you a quiet, loving and very patient female homebody? One who’d like to wake up with a house lion? A lion who wants nothing more than to be with you, sunbathe, play games and, at the end of the day, curl up in bed with you? Lyon may be the one for you. Lyon loves da ladies. Not da men. Or da children. If you live with males or children, or if they visit regularly, Lyon is not da cat for you! A former street cat, Lyon is incredibly loving and loyal to those who know him and very shy with strangers (a guy’s gotta keep himself safe!). If you’ve ever been adopted by a stray cat, you’ll understand the deep love you’ll receive from Lyon. Lyon is very grateful to have been rescued and lets you know this – every single day. He’ll shower you with love, enjoy a never-ending supply of kisses, knead you, make air biscuits, greet you with his lion cub sounds and will want to be your warm, fur-powered blanket in winter. He’ll soothe you to sleep with his turbo-powered purr. And make you laugh with his chattiness, saying the cutest things. Lyon is very intelligent and loves playing games. He’ll lie on his back with his paws in the air, just itching to catch whatever fluffy prey you’re dangling over him – check out the video. He is so intelligent, in fact, that he might well like to do some clicker training with you. And would love the mental stimulation of daily 15 minute play sessions. When not playing, he likes to keep all four paws on the ground. He also loves the great outdoors and will love a large safe and secure enclosure where he can enjoy sunbathing and birdwatching – preferably with you. Lyon is a disciplined dude and likes to go to bed at 10pm and wake up early. You won’t need an alarm clock any more. We don’t know what he’s like with dogs.
Is Lyon for you? If you are:
– living in an adult women-only household
– seeking a loving, loyal, intelligent and playful family member
– understanding of people/cats who are shy and like to feel safe before sharing their beautiful selves with others
– understand that good things come to those who wait and are willing to earn Lyon’s trust and let him have much more time than most cats to settle in. (We can guarantee he will hide for quite some time when he moves in with you)
– committed to sharing your life with a truly amazing cat who may well bring tears to your eyes with his gentle love
