Under Santa Fe Skies

Peepers Deserves a Happy Holiday


© LS King and S Mercer

This is Heidi, happily snuggling with Santa. A few years ago, the beautiful and talented Heidi was adopted by her people from a shelter. Heidi was just a little baby fur ball at risk since she was separated from her mom way too early. Her people nursed her to good health and adopted her. Heidi and her people cannot imagine life without each other. Heidi will have a lovely holiday playing and snuggling with her folks.

This is Peepers. I met him Sunday at Teca Tu where he is staying, hoping to be adopted. Peepers is a beautiful big boy with a purr that tells you how happy he is you stopped by to scratch his head. He is outgoing and very social. Due to his intelligence, he needs a secure and stimulating home.  I would have taken him home right then and there but for Harry the Cat who would not appreciate another large male cat in the house. This is Peeper’s story.

Peepers’ owner surrendered him to the shelter when the landlord reduced the pet per unit ownership to one. Poor Peepers was the one to go. He became anxious and stressed at the shelter. Wouldn’t you?  Felines and Friends, a nonprofit organization, was kind enough to take him in to try to adopt him. Teca Tu is kind enough to take a cat or two at a time into the shop to showcase the cat for adoption. Peepers was born in 2003 but has a lot life in him. His shots are up to date.

If you are interested in adopting Peepers, please call Randa at Felines & Friends at 505-466-3839. Peepers deserves a happy holiday and a happy ending just like Heidi.

There are hundreds of other beautiful and talented cats and dogs in your community waiting to meet you, just  like Georgia the Dog and Harry the Cat were waiting for me, who deserve a happy ending, too. They are the gifts that keep on giving.

Please give it a thought.
