Christy’s Pet Project

ChristysPetProject_618x50

“Christy’s Pet Project” is a weekly sponsored feature at noon each Friday during my show.  It will feature a “Star Pet” from one of many St. Louis area rescue groups, giving them a better chance at placing pets in forever homes.  Not only do I want to find homes for all pets, I want to encourage every pet owner to spay and neuter and join the fight in unnecessary breeding and unintended litters.  I’ve fostered and rescued several animals myself and have personally experienced the struggle for exposure and funding for small rescues.  The goal:  Forever homes for every pet!

This week’s featured pet for adoption:

Copycat and Britain are two adorable kitties who need a good home!

Britton“CopyCat” is from the mean street of St. Louis. He was trapped by St. Louis Feral Cat Outreach with the intended purpose of neutering him and putting him back where he was found. His immediate love of his captors made it clear he was not a feral kitty and a rescue group was contacted and Heartland took him in. This boy is very easy going, loves all humans, is very friendly and affectionate and playful, loves other kitties but has not been exposed to dogs, and just wants to be held and cuddled for hours. Kids would be just fine and an outgoing home would not bother him at all, assuming all visitors want to pet and hold him! It is estimated Copycat was born in April of 2014. He is neutered, up to date on all shots, treated for parasites, micro chipped, and negative for FIV and FeLV. Adoption fee is $110.

“Britain” is the last kitty in her litter of five and as usual the black kitten is the last to be chosen for adoption. She is your typical little kitten, playful, full of energy, LOVES her canned food, loves other kitties, and adjusts to new situations pretty quickly. Big changes for kitties can be a bit scary, but with just a little time and love she makes herself right at home. Kids would be fine, cats would be fine, but she has never seen a dog! Britain and her siblings were rescued during a rain storm in Troy, MO, they were under a bush fussing and the home owner took them inside in a cardboard box and dried them off, fed them, and got on the phone for help. Britain was born in September of 2014 and is spayed, up to date on kitten shots, micro chipped, treated for parasites, and negative for FIV and FeLV. Adoption fee is $125.

We will be at the PetSmart in O’Fallon, MO this and every Saturday from eleven to four, and every Sunday from eleven to two. We also meet interested parties in the evenings at the store by appointment, most of us work full time and foster as well!
