Mingo Rescued from St. Croix

Michael
Hi, this is Mingo a Siamese mix that I adopted from Real Cruzen Cats a rescue that traps and homes feral cats in St. Croix. She loves feather wands and purrs non-stop! Just wanted to mention about peanut butter on bananas as a dog treat to always make sure it doesn’t contain Xylitol which is deadly to dogs – Carol, Exeter NH

Bridget Loves to Cuddle

Michael
This is Bridget, a Shih Tzu/poodle mix (I think). We rescued her about a year ago from the Humane Society here in Omaha, NE. She is about 2+ years old. Last December, I lost my husband and she has become a lifesaver for me. We are Best Friends. No matter what room I am in, Bridget is right here beside me. A big plus: She loves to cuddle at night in “our” bed. – Teresa Cavanaugh, Omaha, NE

This is Malcom & Tumbles

Michael
Michael
This is Malcom (black) and Tumbles (orange tabby). Malcom is very shy and before we adopted him, he hid in a box at the shelter. We decided that he needed a therapy pet and after a long search, we found Tumbles, a friendly and confident cat rescued from the streets of Baltimore. The minute we introduced these two, Malcom stopped hiding and started playing more. In these photos, Malcom is sweetly playing and Tumbles is watching from above. Even therapy pets need some alone time. – Joanne Bates Crimmins

Nogard, The Cricket Slayer

Michael
Please meet Nogard – The Cricket Slayer. Nogard recently passed unexpectedly, but he was an excellent bearded dragon who liked his crickets! Nogard is a family name that goes back to my Great-Great-Great-… just kidding! Nogard is Dragon spelled backward and as Game of Thrones taught those that watched, every dragon needed a proper name, so we added – The Cricket Slayer. RIP Nograd, you were loved and you are missed. – Scott Kempf, Novato, CA
