Pets of the Week
ELIGIBLE APPLICANTS must live within 45 minutes of the Tulsa area
due to the home visit requirement. Applicants must have prior feline experience and a solid vet reference. No exceptions.
Meet our BIG BOY names Nyx (pronounced nicks) ... he is a hunk of love weighing in at 14 lbs. Nyx is about 2 years old. Nyx has large, amber colored eyes. They are spectacular! They remind us of a jewel called Topaz. Maybe he is related to royalty!
So, this guy is chill. He is laid back, easy going, cautious at first, but will settle right in on the couch, or a chair, or a perch. Nothing gets Nyx too excited, so if you want a buddy to just hang out with and be mellow with, Nyx is your guy! He is in a foster home with other 3 other male cats right now and doing great with them after a slow introduction! The people who found him had two dogs, so he is accustomed to some barking. We believe a cat savy dog(s) would be fine for his living situation as well!
Nyx has just started to play a bit with toys. A wand is his favorite! He also loves to hang out and watch the Family Feud, Wheel of Fortune, General Hospital and definitely Judge Judy at 4pm daily! This low maintenance boy just needs someone to love him! Nyx is completely litter box trained and is healthy. We do have him on a diet, to bring him down to about 12 lbs, which would be fine for his larger frame. He is eating Science Diet Light. Nyx is healthy and full vetted, including microchipped! He was born about September 2021.
ADOPTIONS ONLY TO PEOPLE LIVING IN THE NORTHEASTERN OKLAHOMA AREA. This means you need to live no more than 30 mins maximum from Tulsa, OK since we do home visits on every applicant who is approved on paper.
The adoption fee is $75.00 and includes current vaccinations, deworming, negative feline leukemia test, and spay surgery.
Sugar Bear Freddy
You must live within 30 mins of Tulsa, have a secure, fenced in yard
and a solid vet reference.
Meet Sugar Bear Freddy ... he is the most and sweet Sugar Bear ever. We estimate him to be about 9 - 10 years old and he is finally at a healthy weight of 62 lbs. This guy is happy, friendly, affectionate, funny, gentle, laid back and ready for some serious love. Just look at his pictures, he is always smililng. Such a doll, he is so happy to be living a new, different and good life! He is good with everyone he meets. Let us tell you a little bit about him ...
You see, Sugar Bear Freddy was picked up as a stray in a rural area and taken to a kill shelter. We noticed him, and knew he stood little chance of getting a family. We took him into our program to give him a second chance to live out his retirement years in a loving home. Someone owned him and loved him, but it seems as though before he came to that shelter, he had been neglected. Sugar Bear Freddy was tied to something with a cord of some sort around his neck which left an embedded-type sore which was very infected. It looked awful, but it is healed now. This guy has endured a lot and we want to give him every chance at finding a loving and forever home. He has more than earned it.
Freddy was heartworm positive, and is just finishing his 90 day treatment, so is ready to be adopted! He is very healthy, just had his teeth cleaned and is otherwise fully vetted (all vaccines, prevention, neutered, microchip, etc.). The folks at the shelter named him Fred, but when Volunteer Amy saw him, he instantly remined her of the character on a vintage cereal box, what she thought was Sugar Bear something or other. Oh well, he does look like a happy bear, so there you have it!
Freddy is great with other dogs, including his best bud, foster brother Ty. We haven't cat tested him yet, but we will. As far as kids are concerned, he should be fine with children who will show him respect and kindness as an older gent. Sugar Bear Freddy is house trained and crate trained. He has excellent inside doggie manners. He enjoys sunning himself outside or resting in the shade. Just because he is laid back and likes to nap, he has a lot of life left in him, so don't let his age of 9 fool you at all! He will keep you smiling daily, his temperament is amazing. He is just a sweetheart. Please, consider him today. We will move a mountain for him to be loved and find a new family. Sugar Bear Freddy was born about April 2014
