Happy Tails For Kisses

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: AARF TN
Pet’s AARF Name: Kisses
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Mabel
How is your adopted pet doing? Mabel (formally Kisses) came to join our family after a long road trip from Tennessee to Goochland, Virginia… and now we can’t remember what life was like without her!  At 11 months old, her passions include: wrestling with her new pug brother Artie, collecting sticks that are WAAAY too big for her to carry on walks and snuggling with her new human sister, Hattie.  We ADORE this fiesty little gal and thank AARF TN and Megan Rogers for helping her find her way into our lives.  If you want to see what Mabel and Artie are up to, their adventures can be followed on Facebook at The_World_of_Artie or on instagram #theworldofartie.

Happy Tails For "Chessie"

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: April 2019
Pet’s AARF Name: “Chessie”
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Soot
How is your adopted pet doing? She is integrating well with her new older sister, Leia! They sleep on the same cat tree, on different levels. Leia is still young herself, but she’s old enough to feel maternal toward Soot. Her favorite thing to do is lay on Soot and groom her. She lets Soot steal her toys, but whines about it to us. We joke that they’re like Nani and Lilo from Lilo & Stitch!
Each cat has a favorite lap. Soot will insist on being held like a baby by me, and Leia chills by the window with Killian.
