Forever Family Friday: Tarzan

Happy Forever Family Friday! Is your name Jane?

This week we want to tell you about Tarzan. Tarzan is in the shelter at New York Avenue. Tarzan’s profile doesn’t have a bio and we’ve never met him (neither has Mama!) but he caught our attention for one important reason: he is gray and white. And so is Shadow! And Skates is all gray! So we like Tarzan for looks alone. Plus he has a cute pink nose and pink toe beans!!

So if you can’t adopt Mocha because you already have a pet (remember, Mocha doesn’t like other animals), maybe Tarzan is the guy for you!


Oops–Mistake Monday

You guys. We forgot to post on Forever Family Friday. We think it’s because we don’t really know how to read a calendar. Anyway, we’re christening today Mistake Monday to make up for it.

Just a reminder, Forever Family Friday is because we–Skates and Shadow–hold a special place in our hearts for the cats still in the shelter.

Today we want to tell you about Logee! Our friend Bethe says that Logee is “the sweetest, coolest dude in town!” And Bethe is a very good judge of feline character, so you should believe her. Logee is a snuggler and a purr-monster (we know all about purr monsters–remember our foster brudder Prince?) and purr monsters are great white noise makers for sleep!

You should go to the New York Avenue location of the Washington Humane Society and adopt Logee today before he gets adopted by someone else.

This Saturday all adoption fees at WHS are waived as part of a nationwide “Clear the Shelters” event! Stop by the New York Avenue location of WHS between noon and 7 on Saturday, and you can meet not only the NYA cats, but also a whole bunch of fosters who will be there just for the day. (Not Mocha, because we’re Jewish, shabbat-keeping kittelach. Email us–kittelach@gmail–or Mama–dcdotnerd@gmail–to meet Mocha another time.)



Forever Family Friday

Hi hoomans, Skates here. Mama says the “thing” in Internetland is alliteration, so Shadow and I came up with Forever Family Friday. Shadow and I both hold special places in our hearts for the cats who are in the shelter at the Washington Humane Society. Mama adopted me straight from the shelter, and Shadow was so scared there, that’s why he went to his foster mom’s house.

So while we really want you to adopt our foster sister Mocha, we also want you to consider the kittelach who aren’t lucky enough to be in foster care. That’s what Forever Family Fridays are going to be about.

Today we want to tell you about Topper! Topper’s profile doesn’t tell you anything about him, but Mama has inside information. Topper was an outdoor kitty (see his ear tip?) but had a person who loved and cared for him. Sadly, that person passed away, and a WHS volunteer picked Topper up and learned that he is a total cuddle bug and really wants to be an indoor kitty with a hooman or two to spoil him.

Run to New York Avenue and make this Topper’s Forever Family Friday!
