MISSY AD 11-12-12

ADOPTED 11-12-12 – Missy’s story is one of devotion and love, so we’re looking for a forever home that matches EXACTLY what she deserves. Sweet Missy was rescued by an elderly woman living in a retirement village about two years ago, and they were a perfect match, sharing the days together, giving meaning and purpose to one another as they enjoyed one another’s company. Sadly, Missy’s “mom” needed a higher level of care, and had to move into a rehab. center and it was deemed she couldn’t leave, unfortunately — even after her broken bones healed. What Missy’s mom worried about most was what would happen to her beloved feline family, MISSY!
You see, relationships are rooted in trust, faith and forever. Yet, “forever” doesn’t always mean what we want or need it to in this human lifetime. And it’s one of the reasons why we just have to embrace every moment, stand firm in principle and love and BE HERE NOW. Life is too fleeting, fragile and temporal for us to not celebrate the love and joy stemming from all of our relationships whether they are with two-legged or four-legged family members.
Fortunately, as life unfolds and disperses the unavoidable episodes that it will, especially with time’s passing, it also delivers some gems that remind us despite all the trials and tribulations, beauty can conquer all. When Missy’s beloved human lost her independence, Missy lost her security and the only life she’d known with her first savior. But MANY people loved Missy’s human, and one incredibly special woman in particular, a feline connoisseur of the best kind stepped in to lend a hand and offer a heart to MISSY — and her owner, whom she had known essentially her whole life as friends of her granddaughters.
Missy is about two years old, spayed and entirely healthy, loving and friendly. She’s playful and yet loves to snuggle and cuddle. The heroine of the story thus far in Missy’s life, though, has an older cat, SIMON, who is nine. Simon is just not enjoying Missy and hides constantly, causing great concern because fairness and equality are paramount — and separating them and confining them to different rooms seems unfair. Missy is so very loved, cherished and adored, but her current human wants what’s best for Missy given the many changes she’s had to endure since her original beloved human had to go into the nursing home. If fur wasn’t flying, Missy wouldn’t be going anywhere. But Simon just isn’t enjoying the friendly frolic that Missy keeps trying to engage him in, and so while the cats’ behaviors are totally manageable, the goal is not just to “endure” life — but to celebrate it — and those we love, and that includes MISSY — and Simon.
Missy’s ideal home might be as an only cat, or one with younger cats that could tolerate the playfulness that exudes from this flirty little feline. Missy is such an easy cat to love and live with that we feel confident it won’t be hard to place her into a stellar setting where she can be all she should be and not have to dampen her spirit because of an older cat’s desire for solace and silence.
If your heart and home has room for the devotion and loyalty that Missy brings with her, please apply. Missy doesn’t go outside, but loves to lay in the sun. And she loves the LOVE of her current human who is terribly pained to even consider looking for a home for this special cat. But love sometimes means “letting go,” and the right person/family will read this bio and welcome Missy into their hearts. Missy doesn’t deserve to be continuously moved and moved. PLEASE PUT MISSY ON YOUR APPLICATION — and answer only questions as they might relate to “CATS” on the Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc. application for dogs on the APPLY NOW link. It will be our pleasure to put you in touch with Missy’s current foster and she can tell you more fully all the wonderful qualities about this cat! Thanks for wanting to make a difference not only in a cat’s life, but in a family’s situation — and a special woman’s heart. MISSY’s happiness is our way of honoring our passing beloved human — we owe her nothing less!

Sponsored Dogs – They Need Your Help!



RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.

It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog’s preferences and personality are as individual as you are–and if you can accept that– then you’re bound to enjoy each other.

Children & Pets

Animal Behavior Guidelines

Many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Failing to teach a child how to handle pets properly can result in suffering on the part of the pet and, in some cases, injury to the child. Taking introductions slowly will allow you to introduce family dogs and your children safely

Puppy Behavior, Growth & Development

Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.

One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute – everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible – it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.
