So this literally just happened. Watching the Golden Globes and someone decides to jump up on the table to say hi. Notice the two photo bombers in the back of him.

Well, he found his furever home that day. 😺 .

Today is National Cat Day. 😺 .
It's also a bitter sweet day because exactly 2 years ago today our beloved Mojo was taken from us suddenly due to cardiomyopathy. He was only 6. 😿❤️.
In his memory and in honor of National Cat Day, we'd like to emphasize the importance of taking action the minute you notice odd behavior from your pets. They are so tough and good at hiding pain, by the time they show symptoms it's often too late with some of these diseases and illnesses. This was the case with Mojo. Playing that morning, labored breathing that night with an enlarged heart and fluid throughout his chest. He peacefully crossed the rainbow bridge but left a hole in our hearts as we really didn't think we wouldn't be bringing him home that night. 😿 🌈.
We almost lost Venus in 2013 from a urinary tract infection turned full blockage, (blockage almost unheard of in females). The only "off" thing we noticed was one of the 3 cats was peeing in random places but we thought it was behavioral because of foster kittens in the house. Learning from experience, if we could go back in time we would have taken all 3 in to be checked. We assumed it was territorial marking & we were wrong! Never assume, always get them checked. We were fortunate that we found her when we did & her vet saved her life after 4 days in the hospital. 🙏
This mentality was helpful with Halo just recently who had a watery eye that she was squinting. We didn't waste time even though we could've assumed it was just an allergy or something that got in her eye. We got her to the vet the same day. It turned out to be glaucoma & was causing her excruciating pain though she was hiding it well.
In honor and memory of Mojo we wanted to share these stories with you on #nationalcatday in the hopes that it will spread awareness, saving you and your furbaby an emotional and painful experience that might be avoidable if you know how serious the slightest/mildest looking symptom can be. Their stories are detailed on past posts. Halo's is 9/2016, Mojo 10/2014, and Venus 10/2013
Give your kitties an extra treat and extra chin scratches today. 😽

I was asked to share a special & personal adoption story in light of the 25 million pets adopted through @petfinder. I couldn't think of a story more special and inspiring than Roo's. 😺 .
For those who don't know, Roo was born with genetic abnormalities & was rescued by someone who witnessed him cruelly being thrown into a lake. He was adopted out shortly after, still a kitten.
Three years later he was returned emaciated. He was missing patches of fur, skittish, & in an adoption room surrounded by gorgeous cats.
He sat at the shelter, skipped over for 6 months until we met him, and fell in love with all of the reasons that one person literally threw him away & another neglected him, returning him like a defective product. Where they saw deformities & some neurological challenges we saw uniqueness, a sweet personality that was dying to be loved, & a cat that deserved a chance.
He has a condition called radial hypoplasia which is why his front legs are bent, & has abnormally large rear legs so he can stand up steady. He has crossed eyes, big ears, & a crooked tail but we ❤️ all of those things about him! We chose him for the very reasons others looked away.
He was very skittish when we first got him but he looks so much different & has gone from a scared boy to a very affectionate trusting/friendly boy who jumps at every chance to occupy lap space. His purrs are so self rewarding & a daily reminder of how one man's trash can be another's treasure.
We hope Roo's story has inspired you to consider adopting a "special needs" pet. As much as we've changed his life, he's also changed ours. He has proven that something so beautiful can lie beneath an "imperfect" exterior. We feel like the lucky ones in this happy ending. 😺😃🐾💞 .
Join us in celebrating Petfinder's 20th anniversary by sharing your special adoption story.

"Why fit in when you were born to stand out?" ...Dr. Seuss .
Venus, Roo, & now Halo, are all in the "different" club and can all stand by this quote! Even with one eye she is still a beautiful Shiba Inu and is so much happier and lively now that the pain is gone. We love her just the same. Your worth DOES NOT change because of being different! Don't ever let anyone bring you down or make you feel inferior. Embrace your differences and stay close to the people in your life who love you just the way you are because that is the only right way! We all have imperfections which is what makes us individuals. Keep smiling and know "you're amazing just the way you are" (thanks @brunomars ) 💞 😽 .

Poor Halo 😞. She has a suspected eye infection and isn't her usual self. Her eye became squinty and watery yesterday and the vet found her eye to be very cloudy but didn't see any scratches or trauma. Anyone who knows the Shiba-Inu breed knows the struggle of trying to closely examine anything on them so we have drops for her eye (which amazingly we were successful with sneaking in both doses today) and are hoping it's nothing more serious. She's 7 and glaucoma is apparently common in her breed which we're praying it's not! So please keep her in your Purrrayers. We just want her to feel better, she seems so sad. If it seems worse tomorrow she'll see the vet again. This morning it was swollen and goopy. Now she has a cone on so she doesn't wipe at it with her paw. Hoping we see some improvement tomorrow. 🙏🙏
Goodnight everyone! XOXO

Goodnight from Venus & Roo!
Check out how @roothekangaroocat has ZERO difficulty climbing stairs.....there's really not much he can't do that a cat without his condition can. When we first moved I was nervous about how the stairs would be and even bought a baby gate fearing he'd stumble coming down since he can only put weight on one of his front paws but before we could get the gate out he ran up like he'd had stairs all his life & then came down safely. He even likes taking trips down into the basement which has no carpeting on the stairs or anywhere down there yet. He has proven handiCapable! 💪🏼
And to answer a repeated question I've seen often, yes, there is a reason we haven't posted too much over the past couple months. We are no longer in Florida & have moved north keeping us buried in boxes and moving paper. Can you guess where? Here's a hint: Their NFL football team and MLB baseball team mascots are both in the feline family. That should help! 😉😺
It's a move we've been anticipating long before Venus was in our lives and everyone is settling in nicely and is very happy! 😽😽

1st ever Roo t-shirt!! Available in different styles and sizes. Link in bio! This is a campaign that ends after this weekend so they're only available for a limited time. Get yours meow & help other cats in need as proceeds are used for TNR & rescue!! We often get called upon to step up when nobody else is able & because we are not a rescue who are often funded by donations, we use our own money for the majority of what we do with TNR & rescue.

We TNR, foster cats, donate to rescues & sometimes specific emergency cases, and try to help in any way we can, as much as we can!

Most recently, as most of you know from @venustwofacecat account, we trapped & saved a kitten whose leg was torn off in a golf cart accident and are fostering both him and his brother who were trapped together and are now up for adoption! He's a tripod like Roo is and although his surgeries were covered by generous donations, there is always another case right around the corner that funds will be needed for in addition to routine TNR and rescue efforts we help with. Please help us to continue helping others and get a PAWsome shirt too!

😿 Nobody has submitted an application to adopt these guys. 😿
Most of you know Trey's story. So much time, effort, and $ was put into saving him so they really need a very special home. Honestly you'd be lucky to have them and I'm going to have a hard time with this goodbye.
Here's what I can tell you about their personalities.
They are both SUPER SWEET love bugs! Trey is very docile and less playful and active but he can pretty much do anything Trenton can. He just prefers to cuddle.
Trenton, having all 4 of his legs is an energetic playful kitten who is very entertaining but also super sweet. Big lap kitty! Doesn't scratch or bite, neither do.
They are both litter trained, neutered, love human affection, and are very lovable.
Neither have naughty habits in fact, Trenton already knows when you sit down with a plate of food and say "no" that means no. He'll lay down a few feet away and not persist. This took a little training. Trey has never begged for food and is less likely to bother you at the table or countertops because he can only jump so high with 3 legs. He can climb a cat tower or jump up onto your lap but that's about it.
So who are these guys going to be lucky enough to adopt and make their Furever human? Please put in an app at @goodkarmapetrescue if interested. Transport CAN be arranged if not in Florida, just ask.
Come on guys....lets keep them in the family with someone here taking them. It would be great to keep up with his progress as he grows. He's gone through so much and both of these guys deserve a great home! And trust me, you'll be getting two really cute lovable cats. Please tag someone you know who might be interested.
Who's it gonna be? 😺
Please direct habit/personality questions at me and adoption related questions to @goodkarmapetrescue. Thanks everyone! Let's finish their story with a happy ending adoption! 😽

So this just happened. Bad lighting but had to catch the moment anyway. Roo & Trey becoming aquatinted.
Roo used to make those little chirping noises to Ginger when she wouldn't accept him so I'm guessing that's cat talk for "wanna be friends?"
Two tripods hanging out. 🙊🙊
Roo has his right front paw (same paw that Trey is missing) but it never touches the ground. He can't put weight on it so he and Trey walk exactly the same.
I think Roo is getting used to being a foster daddy. He used to get scared and run from kittens.
