These charming two young middle-aged kitties are shining at the shelter for their wonderful “purrsonalities.” They are both very much hoping you will take them into your heart and home.

Colt is a very handsome orange Maine Coon mix who adores people. When people stop by his cage, he immediately starts “making biscuits” with his front feet. Sadly, he was surrendered to the shelter when his owner could no longer care for him.

His previous owner described this love bug as “friendly, likes to be touched and petted, purrs a lot, is good with other cats and is an all-around lap cat.”

Little chubby-cheeked Gracie is also a shining star at the shelter in the sweet and affectionate category. This cute brown tabby girl loves to be held and petted.

It really is kind of a shame that these two lovely and affectionate kitties are biding their time in cages at the shelter when all they want out of life is their forever homes and the love of their owners. Please come and see them both and hopefully choose one (or both!) and take them into your heart. Colt will make biscuits for you!

Crazy Stan AKA Bill Fay is an animal advocate who is walking three hundred miles to support pet rescues and shelters. He dresses in various animal costumes as he makes his trek.

Lucky for us, he will complete his journey in our community, making his final stop on July 12 at about 2 p.m. at the Cape Disappointment Lighthouse. We invite everyone to come and meet this compassionate man and celebrate his journey.

We are also having a Pet Parade celebration of Stan’s journey on July 15 at noon on the Bolstad Beach Approach in Long Beach. There will be fun contests and prizes for Best Costume, Crazy Stan Lookalike, Beachiest Pet, Best Trick, Pet Owner Lookalike, and Judges Choice.

The public is invited to bring their dogs that are known to be friendly and comfortable around crowds/children and join the festivities.

You can follow Crazy Stan on his walk wearing his cat and dog masks at:

This is our busiest cat and kitten season and we are asking for donations of Kitten Chow, canned cat food, and paper towels to help us care for the pets. Thank you so much for caring!
