Felix

 

After an 11 day stay, Felix’s mom and dad came home. It was time for Felix to leave. I have boarded Felix quite a few times and he acclimates really well now because he knows that my home is his vacation home 😊 Of course he is spoiled and actually waits for me to pour bottled water in his bowl before he will drink and then waits for me to stir his food before he will eat. He also loves to listen to a YOU TUBE cat channel where sounds of birds chirping and water gurgling soothes him to sleep. Felix is “special needs”. He has kidney failure and needs to be infused daily and he’s just so chill about it! He has a “state of the art infusion center” aka my kitchen sink with a fluffy blanket for him to lay on. Felix the cat—a wonderful wonderful cat !!!! looking forward to your next visit!

Bowie

Bowie spent a couple of days with me… It was her first visit but settled in pretty quickly. She claimed her space on the couch because she soon realized “my home was her home” Okay–YES! I tend to spoil my guests, but look at that face!!!! She is a sweetheart and I am looking forward to sitting for her in September.

 

 

Preston

His mom and dad got married this past weekend!! Although Preston wasn’t able to attend the ceremony, he still wanted to dress for the occasion!! Preston spent the time with me instead. He is a boy that loves to be petted and held…just loves to be loved and he got plenty of that!

 

 

 

Sadie

Sweet Sadie….She left today after a week stay. It took her less than an hour to feel safe and secure in her temporary surroundings while her family was on vacation. She was one of the most loving, friendly and obedient dogs I have had the pleasure to have in my home. She became my little shadow and was quite a little celebrity with the neighbors because of her happy nature.

 

 

                                       Jewel

Jewel was a precious little gem to care for.  Jewel wanted some companionship from 9-5 while her “mom and dad” were away.  We kept each other company…playing on the deck, taking walks and of course treat breaks. Jewel had her very own staycation where she felt safe and secure

Mia Mia was an overnight guest.  Boxers by nature are upbeat and playful and very loyal to their families, so when her “dad” dropped her off, she was a little reserved, but soon after she was comfortable, eagerly went for walks(although she  would have preferred a nicer day instead of all that rain!!) and played with her toys. Eventually, she was no stranger to the couch and at bedtime she slept like a baby on our bed.                              

                                                           

                                                   Happy & Bailey

Although they were a little slower because of arthritis or had some vision or hearing  loss my senior guests adapted well to their surroundings. To accommodate, we took walks instead of jogs. stairs were an issue, they were carried. They all slept where they felt most comfortable…(in or near my bed 🙂 ) I felt it eased any anxiety they might have had being away from their own environment.Just like humans of course, many factors influence a pet’s health.Bailey and Happy have been given excellent health care and love from their owners …. they are all valued members of their respective families. “Parents” who have all learned and passed on to me how to best manage each of their needs.
