Meet Smudgeface!

me, but I really […]

March 2012 Pet of the Month

Meet Harley!

Name: Hi there. My name is Harley. I was brought home three years ago from the shelter (I do not like cages!) and my Mom struggled with what to call me. After considerable thinking time she settled on Harley (a la Harley Davidson) because I purr and purr. Not just the low you-can-only-feel-it-if-you-have-your-hand-on-my-back type of purr but more the you-can-hear-it-across-the-couch variety. Though she […]
