A Forever Home For Doc Holiday

One of our “retirees”, Doc Holiday, is now looking for his forever home.  We were all set to put him on a plane, but at the last minute, the vet disqualified him from flying.  Grounded?  What a pain!

So, Doc is still available to a good home, but he will need to travel by car.

Doc is a really mellow fellow, and a great companion!  Plus, he has his own little song.  According to Jenny:

All my boys and girls have a song.  Doc’s is to the tune of My Darling Clementine.  It goes sort of like this:  “Oh my Doc Doc, Oh my Doc Doc, Oh my Doc Holiday, You’re my Doc Doc, My Doc Doc, my Doc Doc Holiday.  You’re a good boy, You’re a good boy, That’s my Doc Holiday, You’re a good boy, Such a good boy, That’s my Doc Doc Holiday…” The words are never important, just their name and the tune, they come to know it.  Their songs help for painful vet visits, as well as just to sing to them.  It calms and soothes, that is why I do it.

If you have a place for Doc Holiday in your home, or you know someone who does, please contact us, and we’ll be happy to make arrangements.

UPDATE – June 14, 2016:

Doc Holiday has a promise of a new home in Texas!  His travel arrangements are being finalized, and we’re excited that Doc will have a new loving home!  Thank you everyone, for the inquiries and good wishes.

UPDATE – July 7, 2016:

Doc is on his way to his new home in Texas!  Again, thanks to all who asked about him.  If anyone is still interested in adopting an adult female, our girl Sparkle is looking for a new home.  Click here to find out more!

Should I De-claw My Cat?

We get lots of people who ask us this question.  The answer is a resounding NO.  Here’s why:

Whole Body Effect of Declawing

We understand about your upholstery, but… de-clawing is just a horrible idea.  The best thing to do is to get or make some sturdy scratching posts.
