Meet Tefnut!

Tefnut 1

Tefnut (Tef-newt) Sweet-Woods (we call her Teffy as well) was born in a litter in the Santa Cruz area. We were looking for a companion for our very active, intelligent, outspoken and mischievous Siamese male named Shu. Our family has long been fan of the Birman breed because of how familial and smart they are. When we saw the posting that Teffy was up for adoption as a tiny kitten, we immediately made the drive and tried not to get our hopes up. Luckily, she came home with us the same day.

Tefnut 3

Tefnut is fairly soft spoken and subtle. Her name is a reference to a female principle of wet air or moisture; the name is pre-dynastic Egyptian. She is not the biggest fan of vacuum cleaners, loud people and dogs. She really enjoys wrestling with Shu, bird watching and viewing science fiction shows such as Farscape. Tefnut is very loving to anyone her parents treat as family. She is also a health nut and will remind you to take your vitamins, exercise and rest if you are exhausted.

Meet Curtis!

Curtis 1

After a rough start, Curtis was scooped up by NorCal Boxer Rescue, and his new people (Bill and Lauren) met him one gray day in Roseville. One look at that face, and we were in love. Although Curtis was initially a little nervous around other dogs, he now loves going to Point Isabel and getting chased through the grass. (It’s even better when it’s been raining and he can get that white fur nice and muddy.) He even has a best friend and doggie mentor: Lucca, a lanky Vizsla who has taught him the joys of counter surfing.

Curtis 2

Curtis enjoys popping into all of Berkeley’s dog-friendly shops and getting treats, belly rubs, and napping on any soft surface he can find.

His favorite person in the whole wide world is Sphero, which isn’t so much a person as a glowing robotic ball. Mom and Dad are a close second.

Curtis 3

And yes, he has watched the Little Rascals and he thinks Petey is quite handsome.

Meet Rusty!


A note from his mum:

I met Rusty at a small pet store near my house while I was buying food for our animals; at the time I also had a hamster and my mum had a rabbit. I spotted him in a cage with some of his siblings. The main thing I remember is he was the smallest and seemed to be the one that was left out. I asked to hold him and once I did I knew he was coming home with me. I met him on Wednesday and he came home on Friday. My favorite thing about my little guy is how much he loves to run. He is my buddy and I love him a lot. I might have “mom goggles” on with him but it doesn’t matter he’s perfect in my eyes.

Meet Odin!

Odin 2

I adopted Odin (AKA the Buddiest Buddy that ever Buddied) as a kitten from the Persian and Himalayan Cat Rescue in Mill Valley. Odin stole my heart when he was the only one, among his brothers and sisters, that kept coming back to play and cuddle up with me. We had a special connection from that very first meeting and I’ve grown more and more in love with him with each passing year. Odin is very communicative, curious, courageous, cuddly, and incredibly loving. He is my furry four-legged soul mate, my heart, and my inspiration.

Odin 3

Odin can’t get enough of: napping on pillows and soft blankets, communicating his wants and needs, flopping on his back for pets, sneaking under the blankets in the middle of the night, devouring tuna and any kind of jerky, crunching on hard food, drinking from faucets, gnawing on pens, chewing on plants, warming himself up near any kind of heat source, chasing his sister Loki, attacking plastic bags, playing with his tail, doing his water dance before drinking water, doing his wee wee dance of kneading and kicking, jumping in and out of boxes, soaking up hot shower steam, digging and hanging out in drawers, cuddling in warm laps, giving kisses, and being cared for by all his new friends at Campus Vet!

Odin 4

Odin could do without: intrusions on his nap time, noisy garbage trucks, disorienting windy days and nights, scary vacuum cleaners, and having to eat his bland kidney wet food.
