POW! Bring Fluffy Freddie Into Your Home This New Year’s!

When you first meet Freddie, you almost can’t believe that this large, fluffy orange and white domestic shorthair was ever a stray, forced to wander the streets of South Elgin in search of food and shelter. He’s too handsome, too friendly, too laid back.


At only 1-year-old, this big boy knows how to make himself at home as he suns himself in front of the living room window, soaking up a few rays.

Don’t let Freddie’s size fool you, though! He’s an extremely pleasant guy that loves to cuddle and get petted.

He’s not afraid to tell you his life story, and will hold up his end of any conversation. He definitely doesn’t shy away from letting everyone know when he’s hungry or needs a little attention.

Other cats don’t bother him, but he mainly just minds his own business.

Freddie is the perfect cat to bring into your home this New Year’s!

Congratulations to Tiggy, the little 2-year-old Chihuahua with the effervescent personality that can fill a room. She finally found her forever home! Bring on the cuddling, Tiggy is in the house!

(Editor’s note: Apologies for the typo in last week’s newsletter headline that said, “Twiggy!”)
