Laffy Taffy’s Story

Posted by on Dec 7, 2013 in Holiday Stories 2013 | 1 comment

Laffy Taffy and her siblings were rescued by For Animals about 5 years ago. All her brothers and sisters were adopted, except her. She had an allergy and skin problems, and maybe didn’t look as sweet and beautiful as the rest of the kittens. Or maybe, she was just waiting for me… to come from a far away country and meet a For Animals volunteer so I could become a volunteer myself, visit the shelter and finally meet Laffy Taffy. Her name was Barbara, but I was calling her Laffy Taffy, like the Wonka candies. Laffy didn’t let me come close to her for a long time. I would just sit...

Mona and Hazel’s Story

Posted by on Dec 7, 2013 in Holiday Stories 2013 | Comments Off on Mona and Hazel’s Story

As a For Animals volunteer, one of my favorite jobs is working an adoption event. Sometimes we show kitties who haven’t been named yet, and I love christening them with fun and creative names.

Cumin, renamed Mona once we adopted her,...

Lady Jane the Head Tilt Kitty

Posted by on Dec 5, 2013 in Holiday Stories 2013 | Comments Off on Lady Jane the Head Tilt Kitty

Lady Jane was rescued from the streets during the summer of 2012 in terrible shape — skin and bones, persistent respiratory infection, a severe head tilt and very shy. Her medical issues were addressed but the underlying cause for her head tilt remains a mystery; she may have suffered trauma resulting in neurological impairment during her troubled past. Lady Jane has come a long way since her rescue and while she is still fearful of strangers, once she warms up to you she will purr and give kisses. If you would like to learn more about or meet Lady Jane, please fill out the Adoption...
