A Cure for the Kitten Crazies

You're at work all day, excited to come home and see the brand new, tiny, fluffy kitten you just adopted. In your mind are visions of cuddles, soft kitten fur, and purring. 

Instead, you come home to something that looks more like this: 


Fangs are flying, nails scratching, and you're doing everything in your power to protect yourself from this tiny tyrant that has suddenly taken over the body of your sweet, docile kitten.

What happened? Why has your innocent furbaby turned into a teeny tiny murderer? 

Answer: The Kitten Crazies. The Kitten Crazies overcome all kittens at some point or another, often as a result of boredom. 

I have the Kitten Crazies and I will NOT BE STOPPED UNTIL THIS MOUSE IS.

There are a few cures for the Kitten Crazies, but one is more effective than all the rest:

We iz pretty cute, right?

Adopt two kittens together. 

Seems counterintuitive, you might be thinking. Won't that just double the amount of Kitten Crazies occurring in my home? Sure, but it's all a matter of perspective. Those Crazies could be directed toward your hands, arms, feet, and any other visible parts of your body, or they could be directed on another kitten until both are so tired that they eventually pass out in your lap.

Earlier we nearly killed each other. Now we are sleepy.

Sounds pretty perfect, right?

But wait, isn't it double the work to have two kittens? Sure, there's twice as much poop to scoop. But it saves you the trouble of waving a wand toy for hours on end (it's fun for a little while, but it can get old after two hours straight with no signs of slowing down). 

Look how tiny and ferocious I am!

Kittens can be downright dangerous. They're basically knives covered in a thin layer of fur. But with another kitten around, suddenly all that energy has somewhere to go. Because while it's cute to have a 1-pound kitten swipe at your hand, it's less cute when that kitten is a full-on teenager capable of inflicting considerable damage. 

Need something destroyed? I'm happy to oblige.

Not to mention the $$ you'll save from property damage - because if there's anything kittens love to do, it's scratch up the furniture and knock over your favorite antique objects.

Adopting two kittens can be a life-saver for people with limited time to spend playing with their new kittens. It gives both kittens a chance to get the Crazies out, and protects your hands and feet in the process. Plus, it's just downright fun to watch two kittens go all out on each other, WWE style.

We solemnly swear we are up to no good.

Right now is a good time to adopt a kitten (or two) - we're up to our ears in them. Visit any of our locations to adopt your very own machine of destruction and adorbs-ness. See them all here

A Positive End to A Difficult Week

For some of us, it's been a long, hard week. When the news cycle just keeps throwing bad news after bad news at you, it can be hard to remember what it's like to see good, positive things. 

So that's where we come in. 

This week is yucky, blech!

We're here to provide you with just a few moments of happiness in your news feed. We're giving you a point in your day when you can scroll on your phone and computer and smile, over and over again.

And why is that, hooman?

Because we have puppies. And kittens. And dogs. And cats. And they don't understand anything about news feeds and media stories. 

Hello, I love you.

Like Blake, who doesn't have a mean bone in his body and smiles like this. All. The. Time.

I'm gonna get dis water if it's da last thing I do!

Or Rocky, who would rather spend time in the pool than on the internet. And who, adorably, chomps pool water as though he could actually catch it with his teeth. The cuteness, we can't deal.

Dis pool is mine and I love it and look how cute I am.

If you get more pleasure from the feline variety, how about a pile of kittens to brighten your day?

We're definitely not posing like this so that you'll forgive us for destroying your curtains earlier. Definitely not.

Or this kitten drinking from a bottle while inside a hoodie sweatshirt, which is giving us so much cute-aggression that we almost can't handle it. It's so cute. And tiny. And we want to SQUISH IT. 

I gots no cares in the world, just give me dat bottle.

Speaking of about a head tilt? Are you crying from happiness yet?

What's wrong, hooman? Do you need cuddles?

Hopefully we were able to bring a little sunshine into your day, if only for a minute. But if you're still in need of a bit more positivity in your life, pop in to visit us. Our animals would be more than happy to lend a cuddle and a listening ear. And they're a great reminder that there are good things in the world and you can always find a reason to smile with a pet around.

The Serial Grass-Roller

Luna Loo has been with us looking for a home for a little more than a hot second, and we've started to notice something about her. 

Is it dat I'm really, really, really, ridiculously good looking?

No, it's not that she's dog-gone gorgeous (we would say no pun intended...but it was intended. It really, really was. You're welcome.). Although she is gorgeous. Obviously.

Who me? Aw, shucks.

 No, the thing we've noticed is much more...unique:

Luna Loo can't keep all four paws on the floor.

Now I....had...the time of my liiiiiiife...

It's as if the air was actually full of tiny magnets, somehow pulling her paws toward the sky.

Dat wasn't even remotely funny, and you know it. 

Sorry, Luna. We'll try again.

It's like she's somehow flying, but with her back still fully stuck to the ground.

Whoohoo! Take dat, Peter Pan! No fairy dust needed here.

She's in a constant "give me belly rubs" position. And the thing is, we do want to give her belly rubs. We really, really do.

Da belly. You must rubbeth it.

 It's like she's trying to take over the entire Bay Area by steadily rubbing her butt all over it.

Dis mine now.

Whatever she's trying to do, we're here for it. You go, girl. Way to create a signature move.

Tanks. What u fink about dis spot?
It's perfect, Luna Loo. Just like you. 
Luna Loo and her killer moves are ready to find a consistent spot to rub all over, forever. Luna's at our Milpitas ACC, where she's going on Doggy Day Out walks with volunteers almost everyday, and slowly rolling across one grassy knoll at a time.
 Dis spot's not dat grassy, but dey can't stop me!

This land manatee is sweet as can be, a total snugglebug, and dying to meet you. Return the favor. And don't forget about the belly rubs. 

Pease and tanks.
