Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to extraordinary adoptable pets every week. Today, meet three: Darla, Gemini and Libra, a unique trio that needs to be adopted together.
Darla, a 2-year-old miniature Pinscher/Dachshund mix, came to the Humane Society Silicon Valley of Milpitas, California, with a common problem: She was terrified. Darla was previously surrendered to a crowded city shelter after living in her owner's backyard where she rarely interacted with people.
Cairo isn't just a place in Egypt.
It's the name of Macklemore's cat – and by the looks of things, the singer adores his pretty kitty just as much as the ancient Egyptians loved their feline friends.
The female tabby has her own Instagram page, which is filled with photos of her doing the most paw-dorable things, like sleeping, cuddling with dad, more sleeping and stealing dad's bling (clearly, she has expensive taste).
Brian Russell Kirchoff loved cats.
So the San Rafael, California, real estate attorney did something purr-fectly nice when drawing up his will: he set aside some $800,000 for cats in need at the Marin Humane Society of Novato, California.
A 4-year-old Russian blue cat named Kush is being quarantined after apparently going berserk inside a central Florida home, prompting its owners to call 911.
Police say the feline scratched owners Teresa and James Gregory on their arms and legs Saturday, causing the couple to retreat to a bedroom, where they called 911.
She's a contender – or should we say cat-ender?
Meet Pixel, a Munchkin cat (yes, that's a thing!) who could be the world's smallest cat – and her owners are hoping Guinness World Records will soon declare it so.
Like a lot of grooms on their wedding day, Jackson Galaxy had some pre-nuptial jitters in the moments preceding his June 29th ceremony, held in a secluded canyon in Utah.
Only for Galaxy, host of the Animal Planet show My Cat From Hell, it was on account of raccoons.
It's Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month, and in honor of the wonderful rescue cats out there, we're introducing you to felines-in-waiting all throughout June. Today, we'd like you to meet Homer, a talkative 8-year-old tabby currently being cared for by the Home at Last Rescue of Berkeley, California.
These are the eyes of a curious cat. Though he may be a bit shy at first, when he's given the chance to relax, Homer is easygoing and affectionate.
When he wants attention, Homer is happy to let you know. "He will purr to no end with a little encouragement," reads his Adopt a Pet bio. "He loves to have his head, ears and belly rubbed and will quickly melt into a belly flop to have his soft underside pet."
We all love those videos of soldiers being welcomed home by their loving dogs, but this one of a cat doing the same thing takes it up a notch.
It's Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month, and in honor of the wonderful rescue cats out there, we're introducing you to felines-in-waiting all throughout June. Today, we'd like you to meet Elaine, a 7-year-old who arrived at the SPCA of Anne Arundel County, Maryland, two months ago.
Sadly, when Elaine's parents divorced recently, it changed everything for her. The domestic shorthair, described as a "snuggler," was given up to the shelter and is hoping to make a connection with a new owner soon.
This kitty definitely knows how to charm people. "Elaine is a love bug and sweetheart, rolled into one," says administrative coordinator Kristen Rygg. "She loves everyone, gets along with dogs and other cats, and has lived with children."
