Your Afternoon Animal Fix

If you have any fun or interesting animal/pet photos please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say what neighborhood you’re from or upload to the PoPville flickr pool with your pets name and neighborhood. I can’t guarantee I’ll get them all posted but I’ll do my best.

“Henry in Catherdral Heights politely demanding his supper…or else.”

“I thought you would like these photos from today, where my friend’s dog learned to use the diving board!!!!”

  • Butters is about to smack a ho.

  • Henry is gorgeous!

  • Oooooh! Diving board doggie! Looks like fun!

  • enough with the cats, seriously.

  • Sebastian! You’re so cute, I want to cuddle with you!!

    • Thank you. Sebastian was a recent rescue from Lucky Dog rescue. He is available for snuggles whenever spotted on H street, usually at Little Miss Whiskey’s Monday nights.

    Aw Henry, don’t let them starve you!

  • The dog jumping from the diving board is awesome!

  • A friend is now actively looking to adopt a cat if anyone has one on offer. Must be bold, friendly, interactive, good with kids and dogs. Will have a super loving forever home with an experienced owner.

    • Just adopted one from Homeward Trails with those traits (plus good with cats). If they provide this description I’m sure they can be matched with that type of cat.

    The WHS is holding an adopt-a-thon this weekend and all adoption fees are waived. So get down to Georgia Ave or NY Ave and get a free kitty!

    • Since we’re really looking for certain traits, adopt-a-thons, or even just picking one from a shelter probably isn’t the best option. I got my dear dog from a big meet ‘n greet – and while she is perfect for me, she has issues that wouldn’t work for others, that were in no way obvious at the event. So I’m hoping someone may have been fostering or something and know more about the cat.

      • Check out places like CARA ( which fosters all of its cats/dogs that are up for adoption. I’m sure there are other similar organizations in the area, but we’ve gotten 3 cats from CARA and the organization is great.

      • Homeward Trails also puts all its animals in foster homes; they don’t have a boarding facility, so foster homes are the only option. They also make sure potential adopters get the chance to talk to foster “parents” about the animal’s behavior and any character quirks.

        • I adopted my dog from Homeward trails, and she is WAY different than described by her foster parent and has many behavior problems that they either lied about or just didn’t notice. I still love her to death but still…

          • Same thing happened to me. It was really quite a disappointment. Though I’ve heard of other good experiences with HT.

      • @ Victoria: a friemd who lives in Petworth forwarded me your original post. I have a cat that fits the above description, except I am not sure how he would react to a dog. Long story short, I’ve known this cat most of his life (he is now almost 9) and we took him in as a favor to a friend who is eeeing someone who is seriously allargic to cats. He is a very affectionate and patient cat around people once he gets comfortable. The only problem (and the reason we need to find him a new home) is that he goes alpha around our other cat. We’ve found a friend who will take him in for a trial period, but in case that doesn’t work out does this sound like something your friend might be interested in?
