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 a volunteer who compiles these pets weekly from local shelters.
Pig is a special kitten who is guaranteed to brighten your day. This little girl loves life and all she wants is playtime and snuggles. She is obsessed with her doggie best friend and is actively trying to win over the resident kitties. Pig enjoys lounging around watching tv and trying to steal the remote. Pig has a super soft black coat and a very loud purr motor when she is getting pets. When you are not hanging out playing with her she likes to watch what you are doing and will give the cutest little chirps and trills to get your attention.
Pig was born with a neurological disorder called cerebellar hypoplasia that affects her coordination. She has trouble standing up and walking unsupported, but she is determined to keep trying. Pig flops and wobbles to get to everything she is interested in. If she wants to get somewhere in a hurry she flings herself around with surprising speed. Kittens and cats who are born with this disorder do not know they are any different than other cats and are often described as having the sweetest personalities. Pig certainly lives up to that description and just wants to give and receive all the love. Pig will need a special adopter who is willing to help her maintain and strengthen her muscles as she grows and who is able to provide a safe environment for her care. If that could be you, please email [email protected]!
Are you a fan of thrash metal music? Love a set of electric drums, or perhaps you live next to the biggest fireworks display of the year? Not the ideal home setting for most dogs but if you’re also the loudest snorer you know, not only will Piglet not mind – he will challenge you for the title!
Piglet is deaf. But that’s not his only superpower. He is also blessed with the ability to read faces, understand hand signals and has a super-canine powered sniffer that can detect a hot dog at 100 meters. His ‘drop and wiggle’ move for human cuddles is unrivalled although he doesn’t always appreciate that at 90lbs, he’s not the ideal lap dog.
He needs a calm, adult only home without children as he can be easily startled and when excited becomes a well-intentioned wrecking ball! Despite his sweet nature, he needs an experienced dog owner who can continue to help him blossom into the best possible version of himself and make sure he meets new people slowly to build his trust. Taking Piglet home will have to be a gradual process so we are looking for a special person that is open and willing to invest the time needed to get to know and understand him before transitioning to a new home.
He walks great on leash and does well with other dogs out on walks and in playgroup. Piglet’s quirks are also his most endearing qualities. In the words of the original Piglet, ‘The things that make me different are the things that make me, me’!
