Meet the “Caturday Cat”- Charlie

Posted on by Courtney

Caturday 600x200
CharlieI’m Charlie – very affectionate and cuddly. My perfect spot with my owner would be cuddled up on the couch being brushed. I can be chatty when I want to be, only to get the attention of my owner, but very quiet otherwise then all you can hear is me purring. I’m very well-mannered, easy going, and low maintenance – I don’t jump on counters or tables, just couches to get to my favourite spot. I’m not too particular on being picked up, but will hop onto your lap when I’m in need of a brushing and cuddle. I have chronic ear issues that created an abscess in my ear which has been treated. However, it caused my ear to be misshapen on one side. This makes me more prone to ear infections so I may need treatment here and there. Due to this I qualify for the special needs adoption price. If you are looking for a cuddly, very affectionate cat with a sad story that is looking for a happy ending, I’m your man! Please come visit me at KHS for some cuddle time.

Meet this Week’s “Friday FurBalls”- Mara and Lily

Posted on by Courtney

LilyMaraNice to meet you, I’m Miss Mara. My sister, Lily, and I were brought into the Kingston Humane Society when our beloved owner was no longer able to care for us. It was a sad goodbye, but we are hopeful that our happily ever afters are just around the corner. Lily and I are both Shih Tzus, but an easy way to tell us apart is that I’m a little smaller! Don’t let my small stature fool you; what I may lack in size, I make up for in personality. Another way in which I am different from my sister is that I have a grade 3 heart murmur. Though this hasn’t affected my quality of life so far, the veterinarian should take an extra special listen to my “thump-thump-thump” each time I visit. I really hope that my heart doesn’t affect my chances at finding a forever home. I want one of those more than anything. Because of this, I will be adopted out at the special needs adoption fee of just $135. With this flat fee, I will come home microchipped, spayed, current with vaccines, dewormed, treated with preventative flea medication, and you will receive 6 weeks of free pet insurance. That seems like quite the bargain if you ask me! The people here at the KHS describe me as a sweet, social butterfly, and I would agree with them. I am eager to meet new friends, both humans and animals alike. Much like my sister, I would be happiest in a home with children over 8. As I have lived with Lily for my whole life, I may be happy an animal sibling as well. If you think that I could be your next lap dog, please come into the Kingston Humane Society and meet me today!

WATCH: Man Gets Car Covered in Post-Its for Illegally Parking in Handicapped Zone

Posted on by Damnit Maurie

postits

You know how maddening it is to see an able-bodied person parking in a handicapped spot? A few clever Brazilians took that feeling to its cathartic extremes recently by covering an illegal parker’s car in blue and white Post-It Notes, forming the wheelchair symbol that’s typically painted on disabled parking signs. As onlookers cheered and jeered, the driver hurriedly tried to brush the stick-on notes off his windshield before pulling into traffic and almost causing an accident.
