It wouldn't be right to have a website about Red Rover without including the remaining cast of characters. We have a lot of cats here at Red Rover also. They're all very used to having strange dogs around the house...but the reaction of some of the dogs that stay is priceless! We'll start with The Cat Who Rules All She Surveys.
Princess Thorn of Barrelhaven-"Thorn" 15 year old long-haired tortoiseshell domestic cat, female-spayed. Thorn helps out by being a safe cat for dogs to meet. She won't run at the sight of strange dogs, but usually rubs up on them at first meeting. She does know how to use her formidable claws, however, if it seems needed. Thorn visits puppy class occasionally, to teach the puppies that cats are friends.
Herart's Future Boy-"Fry" 7 year old male (neutered) orange tabby. He can be shy with people, but is great with dogs. He is particuarly drawn to Odd, and can often be found sleeping with him. Fry was born to a stray mom-cat, under a friend's porch. We went to visit the litter, and Fry was the one that came out and booped Score on the nose.
Herart's Agent Girl-"Ziva" 7 year old (spayed) dilute tortoiseshell...short-haired. She's the official greeter of Red Rover...anyone that visits knows Ziva well...she's the cat that rushes to greet everyone by waving her paw while sitting on the arm of the couch. She's never that friendly to us! She was adopted from the Talbot County Humane Society.
Herart's Oh Thank Heaven-"Slurpee" He was found in a 7-11 dumpster at a very young age...he came to us as a foster, and he never left. Slurpee is a large (fat!) brown tabby who is super cuddly, as well as VERY handsome.
Herart's LOL Cat-"Meme" Meme is the youngest...she was found in a client's loafing shed two summers ago...as a teeny, tiny feral kitten. She is a short-haired tortoiseshell. We worked hard at socializing her to people, and she's a great little cat now...though a bit crazy! She LOVES to wrestle and play with Swagger. Her greatest claim to fame is that she kills stink bugs!
