Obi and Leo

Hi, my name is Obi and I am a long-haired black male, about 1 year old. My buddy is Leo, and he is a short-hair tiger, about 5 years old. We lived together and surely would like to stay that way. We are almost perfect cats – we are already neutered, litter-trained, declawed in the front, are current with our …

Out and About – Week of November 4th

Welcome to November and the holiday season. There are already Christmas decorations out, but they’ve been out for a week or so, so this isn’t any real news. We still have Thanksgiving to look forward to, and I have plenty to be thankful for this year. This past weekend you should have set your clocks back one hour. If you …
