Feline Friday-Bobby and Wally

Bobby and Wally are the best of buddies!   They are litter mates and have lived their whole lives together!  

 Bobby is the black and white tuxedo cat.....

                    and Wally is the all black panther cat. 
 Both are affectionate and friendly.  They are about 1 1/2 years old and very playful, and we are really enjoying having them in the shop.  We have been told by the previous owner that one of their favorite playtime activities is to play with toilet paper.  I'm sure that between the two of them the rolls never had a chance.

As kittens they were rescued from the north Harvard area.  They have grown up in a loving safe environment and are great with people and other cats.  We have, however learned that they are scared of dogs.

 They came to StreetCats when their owner could no longer care for them.  The owner had previously adopted Wally and Bobby from StreetCats, so of course we took them back.  Once a StreetCat always a StreetCat!  Unfortunately situations do occur where an owner must give up their cat, or in this case cats.  At that time we are there to help them through it by bringing the cat back to the shop and assuring the owner that we will do all that's possible to find them another loving home. 

 We want Bobby and Wally to be adopted together.  It would be hard on them to separate them at this stage of their lives without causing them a lot of stress and unhappiness.  After seeing them together anyone would understand how close they are to each other.  It's possible that the double adoption fees could stand in the way of an adoption for both cats and we would hate to see that happen.  So to help out a sponsor has offered to pay the adoption fee for one cat  in order to allow them to be adopted together, if necessary.

Both kitties are healthy! They have been to the vet and had ALL of the tests, treatments, and vaccines that are recommended and needed.  Both of them have also been neutered.  Wally and Bobby have also been microchipped.  At the time of their adoption the new owner's contact information will be added to the chip and StreetCats will pay for the first year's registration with the Home Again program that helps lost pets be reunited with their owners. 

If you are interested in meeting Wally and Bobby, feel free to come by StreetCats at 6520 E. 60th St, in Tulsa, 10:30 - 5:00 Tuesday though Saturday, or call our message line, 918-298-0104 with any questions that you may have.  We would love to show you around and introduce you to Bobby and Wally and I’m sure that they would love to meet you, too!

Feline Friday - Adoptions!!!

I try to plan ahead, at least some of the time, and for this week's Feline Friday post I had decided to feature Tiki!  I took new pictures last Tuesday, the 17th, and went back today, the 19th, to take a few more.  When I got to the shop I met 2 women coming out with a cat carrier.  I asked them if they had just adopted a cat and they said "yes".  Of course I had to ask which kitty was going to a new home.  Guess who the lucky kitty was!


You all would be surprised to find out how many times I have chosen a kitty to feature and before I get it published the kitty is adopted! Then I scramble a little to find another kitty for the post.  I've decided that that's "Ok" with me!  If I can be of service by helping the universe choose kitties to be adopted then so be it!

This evening I began thinking about recent adoptions.  I am so happy the way things have been going with adoptions of our kitties, many of which have been Feline Friday featured kitties.

Here are a few more kitties, not in any specific order, that went to their new homes recently!









Sweet Haley wasn't even in the shop long enough to have a turn on Feline Friday!

Haley's friend, Hannah, was in and out so fast that I didn't have an opportunity to photograph her!

Congratulations to our newly adopted kitties!

I'm planning on featuring Waffle next Friday.  Will he be at the shop or not?  We'll see....

P. S.  We want your ideas!

It may not seem like it, but we have been blogging for a couple of years now and we hope you all have enjoyed the postings by the "cats" and by me. 

Some of you may not know it, but the blog is set up to receive comments.  At the end of any entry scroll down a little further and you'll see the comment box.   It would be great to hear from you, the readers, about what you like and also what you would like to see happen with the blog in the future.  So feel free to comment anytime after any of the entries.

Feline Friday - Cubby!

This is truly a cat on a mission, a pet with pep in his step and a twinkle in his eye.  He has places to go, cats to meet and toys to play with day in and day out!

Cubby is a brown tabby with white on his face, his chest and his four little paws.  He also has claws in those four little paws. 

He is friendly with everyone and has no issues whatsoever with any of the other cats. 
If you saw the feature last week on Cooper you may have seen this picture already, but I like it and wanted to show off Cubby in his feature this week.

He really likes being busy and being with people, too.  His bio says that he likes to sit in laps.  I guess that's after he has worn himself out playing!

Cubby will make a wonderful pet for someone!   He is healthy.   He has been to the vet and been tested and vaccinated and is ready to go to his new home!   He will also be micro-chipped when he does go with the new owner's contact information along with the first year's registration paid for by StreetCats!

If you are interested in meeting Cubby,  feel free to come by StreetCats at 6520 E. 60th St, in Tulsa, 10:30 - 5:00 Tuesday though Saturday, or call our message line, 918-298-0104 with any questions that you may have.   We would love to show you around and introduce you to Cubby and I’m sure that he would love to meet you, too!   But you better hurry!   I have a feeling that he will be adopted quickly!
