Your Afternoon Animal Fix

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 6-8 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.


“Rickie in Dupont wants to know when her shame will be over. FYI she is the very same @kittyrickie that was posted back in September, found on the Frederick Douglass bridge. She got spayed last week by the good people at Washington Humane Society (so no Rickie Jrs.).

I have to tell you that 6 months later, pet adoption is amazing! I never had pets growing up, so was always scared of the obligation, and moreover was always skeptical about cats, but this little doll completely transformed me. I wish more people would adopt! It’s such an endless delight.”

    I love Ricky’s instagram account, one of my favorite follows.
    Good on you for adopting an older animal. They are the first ones to get put down because no one wants them

  • Wow Rickie got so big and fluffy! So glad she has brought her humans so much joy. What a great bunch of happy pets today 🙂

  • So glad to see all of these adopted pets featured. The Washington Humane Society has hundreds of animals just like them, so go pay them a visit and meet your new best friend today!

    i couldn’t have asked for a better fix: a ringing endorsement for adoption, a super-happy pup w/his ball, and a senior WHS alum! 😀

    All so cute! Rickie looks beautiful with her “fancy collar”. I wonder about Bing’s sanity (that white stuff is not fun!). Happy Birthday Lady Graytham! Hurray for pet adoption! Hurray for adopting older pets! Hurray for pets!

  • These all make me SO happy. Love to see people promoting pet adoption and especially the adoption of older pets!! All three are adorable.

  • Awwww, Rickie is all grown up! I remember the adorable photo when she was first rescued from the bridge 🙂

    Bing looks like he is having fun, and Lady wears her crown well

  • Well, if this doesn’t fix your afternoon nothing can. Hurray for the Washington Humane Society and for their spay and neuter clinic. Feel better soon Rickie.

  • Hi Rickie (and Rickie’s mom)! You’re so grown up and elegant! That tail is aMAZing. Kinda wishing we’d kept you. 😉

  • Yay for Rickie! And if her story inspired anyone to think about adopting a cat – I’ve got 4 or 5 great foster kittens available right now. They will be at an adoption event Sat. through Homeward Trails at PetMAC on Wisconsin Blvd.
