What's Up Wednesday

Remember Ashton and Anthony? Here are their ARF photos. They were adopted in September

They are now know as Carmelo Anthony and Thomas!

The adopter said these wonderful things about them:

  • They are such a pair of sweet animals and very loving 
  • We have a 17 1/2 year old cat who has embraced kittens as annoying younger siblings. They will play, share food and sleep in the same locations, but sometimes he loses patience and doesn't feel like wrestling. 
Here they are in their home!

Can you tell...

the difference between a cat with a hairball and a cat that is vomiting?


If a cat is retching up a hairball, it will pull its chin in towards its chest.

If a cat is trying to vomit, it will push its chin away from its body.

What's Up Wednesday

Welcome to What's Up Wednesday! Every Wednesday I will try to provide some adorable stories and/or photos of previous foster animals from when they were in their foster home. If you would like to have your story or photos shared, please email foster@arflife.org

Here is Tribeca frolicking in the grass! His foster described him as "playful and silly, loves fetch and tug and joyfully plays with toys." He is very social and friendly with other dogs-big and small!
Tribeca is available for adoption. Feel free to follow the link to learn more about him: https://www.arflife.org/dogs/17008488
