CRITTERS OF THE WEEK
Announcement: Castaway Critters is accepting and processing adoption applications . However, with things changing daily, the adoptions may need to take place at a later date.
Becker is a gentle, laid back giant who was found wandering around a trailer park where some of the other cats were trying to chase him away. A timid cat then, he’s now beginning to crawl up on his foster mom’s lap for special attention and discovering that toys are fun. Becker, who’s about 4 years old, is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.
For more information, contact Kim at email@example.com or check out his web page under Adoptable Cats. You can also begin the adoption process on the web site by completing an online Adoption Application.
Around June 2019, we decided to look in to adopting a dog. We had started fostering kittens for Castaway Critters and thought a dog would help with their socialization. We looked at the available dogs on the Castaway Critters website and zeroed in on LAINIE.
About a week later, on a Saturday afternoon, we walked into the Colonial Park Petco to buy some cat items and saw that Castaway Critters was there showcasing dogs and cats. We asked one of the dog coordinators if LAINIE was going to be coming and found out that she was on her way!
When LAINIE arrived with her foster mother Denise, she came up to me and we quickly settled down on the floor. She sat on my lap and put her head on my shoulder. We were hooked!
We went through the adoption process and got the okay to pick up LAINIE on July 11, 2019! Since that time, LAINIE has blossomed. She enjoys a large fenced in yard surrounded by woods, walks around the neighborhood and through the woods with her pack (us), and looking at the foster kitties on the screened-in “catio”. She even has a best bud, Colby Jack, her orange-striped cat. (Our other five cats intimidate her, so she leaves them alone.)
LAINIE loves car rides and goes cruising with us to Carlisle Barracks, Fort Indiantown Gap, Mechanicsburg and anywhere else we decide to go.
She is still a little rough (ruff?) around the edges, but we are hopeful that the training classes at Petco will help to settle her down and ease her transition into adulthood.
