Testimonials
I just wanted to tell you thanks. I've emailed all my fellow pet-lovers the following: "This isn’t my favorite topic, but I was so impressed by this place that I wanted to share it with my fellow pet-lovers. I went to the Chamblee one and it was nicer than any funeral home I’ve ever been to and the people were awesome. I hope you never need it, but if you do, you couldn’t ask for better care." Thanks again, Christy

To our Junior:

  Junior was the first cat I learned how to rescue. His Mom was Feral (a gorgeous muted calico) that nursed him long past the other babies in his litter. He was a cute white and tan butterball. When she finally made him leave 'home' he hung out with another Mom cat (I believe she was a half-sibling from an earlier litter) who watched out for him. I ended up rescuing him because he had this awful cough and I was worried about him. My dear friend Laurel taught me how to persuade him to join my family. My then roommate and I then rescued and spayed/neutered many cats after that. At any rate, Junior had a large personality. If he was ok with being pet he would bend down his head and show his neck. If not he would jerk his head back and glare at you. If you persisted a paw came up. If you continued to persist the paw would swing with claws extended. he loved having a say in the matter. Over the years he mellowed some, occasionally climbing into your lap, more willing to be pet, etc. Earlier this year when he became obviously ill he became a major love bug - always underfoot and his tail curling around a leg, demanding pets. When he was on reduced meds this last month he became an aggressive food pest and stalked food while we were eating (even my daughter's breakfast cereal). He'd climb up on tables, into the fridge, into the dishwasher, etc. When he wanted to avoid medicine or have alone time he was creative with hiding places. He learned to stand outside of my showers and first poke in his head to get wet and then the tail side (about a week or two before his physical health deteriorated badly). I was impressed with how ingenuitive he was. He also had interesting eyes that seemed sometimes brown and sometimes gold. Before he was sick he was a meticulous groomer with the most beautiful soft fur (better than angora). I miss him so much!
