Your Afternoon Animal Fix – AdoPtville

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share for the regular fix 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. AdoPtville is run by two volunteers who compile these pets weekly from local shelters.

If your castle is in need of a pint-sized princess, look no further than Abbey. Having raised her three rambunctious kittens, Abbey is looking for a quiet place to call her own.

This dainty diva is just beginning to learn “how to cat” and trust humans but she clearly craves attention and will vocalize whenever she thinks she is not getting enough! Abbey happily purrs, runs figure eights through your legs and asks for pets constantly but if you go too far and try to rub her belly, you will be rewarded with a solid whack (no claws) . (I mean…she is a disciplinarian Abbess after all…)

Abbey would do best with an experienced cat owner who can continue to help her grow. If this quirky queen sounds like a good fit for you, please email [email protected]. You can see her background on instagram @pokeypotpie and her current life @bnussb01.

Ariel might be the most special of our special dogs. She has the largest and most dedicated groupies a dog could ever have. When Ariel came to Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation, we noticed right away that she had an issue with her – ahem- back end. X-rays revealed an old traumatic injury, probably from being hit by a car that had left her with a muscle tone deficit. This lack of muscle tone means she doesn’t have full control of her bowels. She has been going to physical therapy to help her build muscles and we are seeing some improvement. In the meantime, when Ariel goes out on Dogventures (and she goes on the regular, thanks to her fan club) she rocks a purple diaper and rocks it with style. Sometimes, she tops the diaper with a NASA t-shirt because we all know astronauts are the coolest and they also wear diapers, so…

Ariel is tolerant, patient, incredibly friendly, and loves to wrestle and play with other dogs. She is good in the car, walks nicely on a leash and is always excited to meet new friends. She is looking for a special someone, maybe with a laundry room where she can sleep at night and the ability to get her outside often during the day.

For more photos, check her out on Instagram. To learn more, email [email protected].

For many remote workers, a messy home is distracting.

You’re getting pulled into meetings, and your unread emails keep ticking up. But you can’t focus because pet hair tumbleweeds keep floating across the floor, your desk has a fine layer of dust and you keep your video off in meetings so no one sees the chaos behind you.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
