Leaning Lenny is Bulletproof!

Posted on Monday, June 3rd

Leaning Lenny is Bulletproof! Just like Superman, our boy Leaning Lenny seems to be bulletproof! We first heard of Lenny through an urgent email from Animal Control. They had a 9-year-old, heartworm positive miniature pinscher in pain with a badly injured leg, and no money or space to care for him. If he didn’t find a rescue that day, he would be euthanized in the morning. We didn’t know what had happened to him, but we knew we had to help! We stepped up to save him and named him Leaning Lenny. He quickly visited our vet for X-rays. Turns out, Lenny had been… READ MORE >

The Outdoors Await!  How to Harness Train Your Cat

Posted on Sunday, June 2nd

The Outdoors Await!  How to Harness Train Your Cat By Laura Moss, Adventure Cats My cats, Fiver and Sirius, have always been captivated by the world outside the window. They spend hours lounging in sun puddles, watching birds and squirrels, and delighting in outdoor scents whenever I crack a window. In fact, one of my cats, Fiver, was so fascinated by the outside world, that he began creeping close to the door whenever it opened. Once, he even dashed outside to see just what was out there. Since we’d rescued him as an injured kitten, Fiver hadn’t ventured outdoors, so he certainly wasn’t prepared for the sights, scents and… READ MORE >

Fostering saves lives, just like Bucky’s

Posted on Thursday, May 23rd

Fostering saves lives, just like Bucky’s Little Bucky was found in the street in Buckhead (hence the name!). He was fortunate enough to make it to Furkids, where he was welcomed with some poking and prodding (and a pet or two) from our med team. Finally, Bucky got his own little room to play and relax in. His long and tiring journey has turned out wonderfully, and now he's got many more days to look forward to! Right now, there are dozens of baby kittens just like Bucky at Furkids waiting for a foster home. With more fosters, we can save more lives just like Bucky.… READ MORE >

Confetti Finally Goes Home

Posted on Sunday, May 19th

Confetti Finally Goes Home 5,291 days. That’s 14 ½ years. Until April 30th, Confetti was the kitty who had been with Furkids the longest. Confetti was born in November of 2002 – the same year Furkids was founded, and came to Furkids in November 2004 from the Atlanta Humane Society, which means she may have spent her entire life in shelters. Confetti was adopted and returned several times over the years. Usually she was returned because of inconsistent litter box use. The last time she was adopted was in 2015. Whenever Confetti came back to Furkids, she settled right back in just like she… READ MORE >
