Plants and pets, together in West Seattle, ready for new homes

West Seattle-based Furry Faces Foundation usually has a few plant sales each spring and summer to raise money for its animal-rescue work — thecats.jpgbut during the first day of the F3 sale this weekend, you’ll not only find plants, you might find yourself a new pet. Teri Ensley of Furry Faces says King County Animal Services is bringing adoptable cats and dogs to the sale this Saturday, 3809 46th SW (map), 11 am-3 pm. Rain or shine; there’s a backup plan if the weather’s soggy. The sale will continue, sans animals, on Sunday, and plants will be sold both days 10 am-4 pm. (Shown at left, in case you were wondering, are the official WSB mascots for pet adoption, the cats we adopted from local shelters as adults.) P.S. One more pet note while we’re all here – we just posted two more lost pets on the WSB Pets page; maybe you can help bring them home.

    Bravo to “The WSB’s” for adopting adult cats!
    Young, cute kittens and puppies are usually the first to be adopted, so I always recommend adopting adult pets. They end up at a shelter/pound through no fault of their own — owner dies, bad owner ‘discards’ them, got lost, etc. They’ve spent years giving their unconditional love and affection to someone, and it would be horrible that their reward for many years of faithful companionship was a needle or a vacuum chamber.
    So if you’re in the market for a new life companion, one who will devote their lives to amusing and comforting you, please consider adopting an adult dog or cat!

    Indeed. These guys are the sweetest ever. We adopted the tortie when she was 2 and trembling in a cage at a city “foster cat adoptathon,” the Tonkinese mix when he was 5 and in the Purrfect Pals cage at the Junction Petco (at least one adoption had fallen thru and we just couldn’t stand to see him sitting there any more), but both are about 8 now and the absolute best of pals even though the tortie had a three-year head start on ruling the house – TR

    I have a soft spot for old dogs, I love the white fur around a muzzle and the slow, creaky way that they move. We have two older dogs shelter dogs and they are a joy. There is a wisdom and love that they share that I don’t see in the same with with puppies. who are cute too- don’t get me wrong, but old doggies are my favorite.

    TR, so, do they walk across your keyboard, as you’re typing away, to make sure it’s functioning properly?

    These are also the best-behaved cats ever.
    Our previous cat, who died in 1996 at 18 1/2, would sit on newspapers and then keyboards when the Internet moved into our life in her later years … but these guys don’t jump up on the table or desk. Astounding.

    Hmmm….obviously, they failed Kitty 101 at Cat School! :P


    (How nice, though, that they don’t do that. Otherwise, we’d see many of your threads with things such as “cbwbifcobcvoaowp” in them!)



Sorry, comment time is over.
