Even a cat has no choice but to jump sometimes, and a raging fire at a Florida apartment complex was one of those times. The cat on a hot 3rd floor first retreated, scared by the firemen. But when things got too hot, Charley Jasper jumped…landed on his feet and kept going.

Pet Stories

A Shih Tzu Named Shai

We adopted Shai though a foster family to discover she was mostly blind from abuse. Only months later, her retina detached and she became fully blind. This brave and small Shih Tzu still acclimated well, until she suffered a stroke. We came home to a normally snuggly pup who that day could not get up off of her side. 

Kugel's Story

Kugel found us or we found Kugel only a few years ago - not sure how the story starts. But, since we first got Kugel she was very sick. The fabulous Dr. Kim Alexander helped us determine it was gastric lymphoma. 

Katie's Story

Thanks to Dr. Chick Weisse, Katie will turn 3 this October. Katie was diagnosed with a liver shunt at 3 months old. Dr. Weisse put her on medications till she was old enough to have the surgery correct her problem.
