Simon | Featured Furkid

Posted on Tuesday, March 20th

Note: A few weeks ago we featured a young cat named Simon. No, he did not age rapidly! This is our “Old Man Simon.” He’s a sweetheart. My name is Simon. I’m an older gentleman who loves everyone. I want to be in the middle of someone’s lap, table or desk and especially where you are working. In fact, I was sitting in the middle of this bio as it was being written. I will stick my nose in your cup, glass, or plate; rub my head against your chin; climb on your shoulders; or meow squeakily at you. I… READ MORE >

Soon after they arrived, it was discovered that Devon would have to have her left eye surgically removed due to cancer. She came through well after… READ MORE >

Simon | Featured Furkid

Posted on Thursday, March 1st

Little black & white Simon Cowell was born in August 2011—so he’s a young one. He’s a shelter favorite—very easy going with a loving, sophisticated temperament. He is a mush-pie when turned on his back in your lap or arms to have a belly scratch until he dozes off. He’s a bit of a “diva” as he prefers fluffy beds for his naps and he is quite vocal when hungry. He likes to claim the feed dish before the others, gently pawing them to move over. He is also very attached to his scratching post and dangling toys. This sweet… READ MORE >
