    So we got Gilly adopted out to a young couple, they were super excited. We then took in Boonie who had a major hip surgery and Part of her femur removed do to an abusive home. She has settled in well and is now super playful.

    It's so hard and yet so rewarding at the same time!
    Been quiet on my front....which is normal for the winter with kitties. Makes my heart warm to see you're still going strong!

    We also took in a 14 year old cat for a few days, it’s owners were old and both hospitalized, and no one in the family could take him in. He was at the vet to be euthanized and they called Scars. A family came to see him and hit it off right away. The called to say they would take him after thinking about it for a few hours. Coincidentally, the old man passed around the same time the family called to take him, kind of timely, maybe the old guy was looking out for his buddy.

    Bonnie was adopted on xmas eve to a mom and daughter who adored the hell out of her, so we were happy she found a good home.

    Wife and I picked up a pup yesterday and brought him home from the intake farm, we named him Keo, and he looks like a maybe a lab/pitty/shep cross, but again we don't really have a clue. Little guy is going to see Dr. Nutzcutov today so he will probably be pretty chill tonight.

    I will grab some pics. The lady at intake has a little pig named Breakfast that was hilarious, I will have some bonus pics of him.

    This was Keo, I can’t remember the exact day but it was before I went to San Diego, he was adopted by another young couple. Got a great vibe from them.

    We now have a couple pups that are actually really well behaved. I don’t have names yet, but will update you guys.

    These two, as expected went very quick. We just picked up a very emaciated, the old “owners” were starving their dogs. Bunch of greasy cocksuckers.

    Anyway, we don’t have a name for her yet but she seems pretty sweet, I was thinking Sage.

    She doesn't stay still at all, I think it is her first time being indoors. I should hopefully have some better ones this week.

    So without my input being considered(which is a pretty common theme), wife and friend named her Belle. She is settling in well, gets a little jealous of Brady but has gotten a lot better and is less of a savage when we put food out for her.

    Picked up a new kitty posse Friday from the SPCA (first one this year). 6 rugrats entered Friday, however Saturday, 6 became 5. :(
    The smallest of the litter sadly did not make it. She spent her final hours here being loved as much as 1 person and 2 dogs could muster. Being held and comforted knowing she wouldn't have much more time. Saturday morning she was humanly euthanized. My heart is a little broken.

    This was Peanut's final day-the day she got to experience love and comfort for the first time in her very short life.

    I still have 5 remaining happy healthy kittens.

    Dio: Aka Brows. He's full of personality and LOVES his foster Mom. Spends most of his time monopolizing my shoulder so he can get as close as he can to the part that gives him loads of kisses.

    Tip with the beautiful coat. He's the shyest of the kitty crew but is warming up slowly.

    Mona the remaining female is the most playful of the bunch and loves terrorizing her brothers.

    Tito tends to fall asleep in your arms and spend most of his day rolling over on his back for belly rubs.

    And finally we have Tom...the second smallest next to Peanut. Also Peanut's twin. He's doing well and gaining some weight. He likes to spend his time talking to his foster Mom about his day and how much he doesn't like that they're all bigger than him but he's got enough sass to go around.

    The kitty posse had their check up and needles today. They weren't very happy but they did it. On the ride back Tip decided he was too far from his foster Mom and needed to reach out. Ended up holding paws the rest of the way home.

    So we finally found Belle the perfect home, I wish they adopted me actually, it was an estate acherage and gab had some sweet cars. She is loving it there and her new brother Finn is a boxer who keeps her busy. He is also a SCARS alumi. She was our longest yet at 5 months. I will miss her. She came in at 35 lbs and left at a healthy 55 lbs. Here she is playing with Brady shortly before she left.

    The wife was a little sad so she demanded some puppy therapy. This is Willow and Pixie. Our friends daughter decided she wanted to do a fundraiser for SCARS for her 12th birthday party rather than gifts so the puppies will be there. In turn she got to name the dogs. She is super pumped and I must say, her generosity needs to be commended. I certainly would have wanted gifts at 12. Willow is the darker one.

    The two little pups are gone as of last night, they usually don't take long. We had vacancy for about 90 mins and took in a new 4 month old pup. My wife's aunt demanded to name the dog a persons name, so we now have Dennis. I will get some pics. I think we are over 30 as there were a couple I didn't have a chance to post in here.
