Pets of the Week: Buboi & Willy
Buboi is 16 pounds of pure marshmallow! He is a 5-year-old bluepoint Siamese polydactyl. Polydactyls or "Hemingway cats" have an extra digit on their paws. Buboi is an anti-bullying advocate; he does not do well with dominant or aggressive cats. He gets along fine with kitties who would like to be balanced buddies. He doesn't mind being the only cat in the household. Human companionship is what really makes him happy. Buboi will tolerate dogs who are not cat reactive. He loves to play, toss, and chase his toys.
Buboi is available from the Southern California Siamese Rescue. They do not have a shelter—all of their cats are fostered in private homes and can be viewed on their website. Siamese Cat Rescue's greatest challenge is finding foster homes for their rescues. Contact SCSR if you are interested in volunteering, donating, fostering or adopting Buboi.
Wilma is a beautiful Harlequin Great Dane. She has crystal blue eyes and a stunning black and white coat. Willy is 7 years old and 100 pounds, which is a small sized female Dane. Willy is great with everyone she meets, loves going on walks, and walks well on leash. She is house-trained and has been in a home all her life. Willy would prefer to be in a home as the only dog or with another large dog (she lived with a Lab in her previous home). Willy is in excellent health with good teeth, and is full of energy. She is sweet and endearing with a bright and happy personality. Her tail never stops wagging! She knows "sit" and "lay down" and heels nicely on lead. She would like a human companion experienced with the Great Dane breed. Due to her large size, she would be best placed with kids over the age of 15.Willy is available for adoption from Animals Rule Rescue. You can meet Willy at the Animals Rule Saturday adoption event from 11am-3pm at Creative Pet Supply. Willy is spayed, dewormed, microchipped, and current on all her vaccinations. Animals Rule Rescue is a group of non-paid volunteers who rescue and foster animals in need of adoption and find them permanent forever homes. Their motto is, "Don't buy, don't breed, adopt!" Indeed.
