Spotlight Thursday – Meet Tribble

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!


Name:  Tribble

Age:  7  years

Location:  Colorado

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I’ve never known a time without my parents – they’ve were there when I was born and have been there ever since. When I first met them, I knew they were warm and now I also know they are sweet!

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  I was supposed to be given to one of Daddy’s friends, and I was preparing myself to leave. Then Mom intervened and insisted they give his friend my sister. She wanted to keep me, even though she had promised Daddy that they weren’t going to keep any of Garnet’s puppies. Pretty soon, I realized that all my siblings had gone, and I was still there. Mom was so happy! When she told me I was staying I was really happy; I just adore my dog-mom, Garnet. I didn’t want to go live with strangers. I was so excited to stay home with her!

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? I almost died one day, playing with Garnet in the back yard. Her tooth got caught in my collar and when she tried to get away, it pulled even tighter. I passed out. When I woke up, Mom was holding me to her chest, trying to get me to breath. It all worked out, and they took away our collars, but I was pretty scared I’d get in trouble. We were all okay, though, and I’ve been pretty good. Oh, except when I ate that dead bird and almost died from sepsis. They saved me with the help of some great veterinarians and lots of dough. I thought they’d be mad at me then, too, but they were so happy when I got home from the hospital that all was forgiven.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? Mom, of course (giggle). She’s such a softy. It’s a good thing that she loves me. Dad has finally gotten over the fact that they kept one of Garnet’s puppies, thank goodness.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  They still treat me like a kid! I’m a grown up, well, technically. But Garnet and I are always together, and since she’s in charge, that means I’m not. So, I understand that they still treat me like a little girl; I can take advantage of that, you know.




Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Garnet

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!


Name:  Garnet

Age:  Unknown – Rescue

Location:  Colorado

Web/Blog Page:  https://peacewithmylife.com/

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I was on survival mode and didn’t pay much attention to Mom until she put me in the car. The car really scared me, and I wasn’t sure I could trust someone who had put me in a car! I hadn’t been out of the puppy mill for long, and I was too scared and depressed to get impressed over Mom or Dad.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  I liked it when she got me a cool haircut; I’d never gotten to be pretty before! But after a few weeks, my secret was out. When my Mom figured out that I was pregnant when she got me, I thought that she wouldn’t want me. Or maybe she’d be like the puppy mill and only want me for breeding babies. But it wasn’t like that. She seemed to handle my pregnancy and when my puppies were born, she found them homes with friends of friends. That made me feel good, but I didn’t know I belonged until they got me “fixed.” I was more to them than a puppy-making machine! That’s when I knew that they cared.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? It was probably the fact that I was already in the “family way” when Mom picked me out. (*hangs head, embarrassed*) It all turned out okay, but I wasn’t sure it would. I do my best to stay out of the way and be a good girl.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? I can’t choose who loves me more! Both my parents love me and I like them both. I give them both lots of attention; I’m a lucky girl. They even made me “alpha female.” My only job is to be on the greeting and security details. I may be small, but I’m well camouflaged. If I came after you, you wouldn’t know what hit you!

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  I don’t like the leash or the car, and when it’s trip time, I tend to run and hide. So they sometimes think that I don’t want to go with them – but I do want to go! Once I get to the place where the smells are new and interesting, I’m happy to be there. Mom lets me choose if I want a walk, and I appreciate that. She seems to know I’m scared, but she doesn’t always know how much I really want to go.


Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

Spotlight Thursday – Meet Tsunami

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!


Name:  Tsunami (nickname, “Nami”)

Age:  13  years

Location:  Colorado

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I’m not sure I understood their relevance. I’m an independent girl and was just pleased to see the food keep coming.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  When my parents understood that I didn’t want to be picked up, I knew that I could make this home work. When I want to be adored, I’ll come to them and request petting. Otherwise, keep your hands off; I just have to be in control

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? (*tail whips, rapidly*) I’m the perfect guest. I never hurk something up in the humans’ bed or shoes. I always use the litter box. I’ve done nothing inappropriate. Well, there was the one time I went camping with the humans, and I got out of the camper and took a walk in the woods. They chased after me, but I was always able to stay a few steps ahead. Mom was not amused, muttering things like “bear bait” and “going feral.” I finally let her catch me, but (*mad ears*) they don’t let me go camping with them anymore.

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? I go to mom for pets more often than I go to dad. But I’m not sure either of them is sufficiently wrapped around my paw the way that I would like.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  They think that I’m an ordinary cat. As if! I’m involved with special, under-cover work while they think I’m sleeping, but of course, I’ll never tell what THAT’s about.
