Hello Everyone! About a week ago, I received some very sad news, one of our best clients from Acorn Veterinary Clinic (Davis, CA) where I worked in college, passed away. Mr. Tankersley was one of the nicest gentleman you would ever meet. He frequented the hospital because he cared for 8 beautiful cats. He brought in all of his kitties to make sure they were given the best of care, in addition to making donations to many shelters around the United States to provide care for other shelter animals.
My good friend Kristi offered to look after his cats while he went to the hospital, when she later received news Mr. Tankersley had passed away in the hospital leaving his 8 beautiful kitties without an owner. Kristi being the wonderful person she is, has taken it upon herself to find homes for Mr.Tankersley’s cats. Since his passing, she has already found a home for his Savannah kitty and possibly two others. However, that still leaves 5 or 6 other cats in need of a home.
Without further adieu, I introduce the Tankersley kitties:
Bin Tea is a super sweet girl who is happiest being brushed or petted. She is very content indoors, and truly enjoys relaxing about the house. She is in excellent health according to her most recent blood panel and urinalysis. She is approximately 15 years young, and is a medium haired black spayed female.
Twinkle is described by Kristi as, “the sweetest cat I ever met”. Twinkles #1 favorite thing is company. She wants to follow you around and be near you as much as possible. She would make a lovely cat for anyone looking for a buddy, or a shadow :). She is approximately 13 years young, and she is a spayed female medium-haired light orange tabby.
Mr. Tankersley opened his home to Muff last year. He is a very sweet boy who enjoys pets and conversation. He can be described as a bit shy, although equally as loving. He is approximately 13 years young, neutered male orange tabby. Muff will be taking a trip to the vet on Tuesday to be sure he is in good health.
Poeky is a very sweet kitty who is described as independent, although he is happy to accept some pets when he wants them. He has been diagnosed with Hyperthyroid disease, and will need daily medication. He is approximately 13 years young, neutered male gray kitty.
Oliver is the most senior kitty. He is a bit afraid since he spent most of his life with Mr. Tankersley, but if anyone would be willing to let him live out a few years in their home it would be greatly appreciated.
All of these cats were indoor with access to an outdoor enclosure, they have never had free reign. We are unsure of how they would react to dogs, although we would be wiling to test out a scenario if need be. We would be happy to take additional photos or share additional information. Although we only know of them from interaction at the hospital (and Kristi’s recent pet sitting) we can say that they are all in good health, and could certainly use a home for the holidays.
In the spirit of Christmas, I am calling on everyone to see if we can get these kitties a new home. No matter where you are located, please contact me email@example.com if you are interested in any of these cats. We have funding to support their transport to different locations and would love for them to get a new forever home.
