Homeless in Cos Cob: Blue and Max’s Owner Went into Assisted Living

Local Pets Need New Homes
Earlier this week a local Cos Cob woman was moved to an assisted living facility leaving behind her two beloved pets. Blue is a friendly (but scared) eight year old neutered, declawed cat.  He is used to living with a very mellow dog. Max is a very mellow six year old neutered Shih Tzu. He is good with cats and prefers a quieter  household (no young kids please).  He does not require a lot of exercise — he prefers to follow you around the house instead of going for a walk.  He would be ideal for someone looking for a non-shedding low-maintenance dog. They were taken under the care of Cat Assistance NY,  and do not have to find a home together, although that would be great!  For more information about either of these pets please contact Kerri Ann at diezeldog@me.com.
