HEE-HAW HEY! My name is Willy and this is my sister Ellie! Our mom Mandy, who is a technician at Crago, adopted us just this past week! We've been settling in nicely to our new home! There's plenty of space for exploring which is one of my favorite things to do! Whenever I find something new around I take my time checking it out! Ellie, on the other hand, really likes getting cuddles. She's a bit of a love bug, you could say. When we are not spending time off on our own we love taking dirt baths! I know it sounds crazy but it's quite fun and good for us too! Our mom has all types of animals from cats, dogs,sheep, chickens and even honey bees! We all have our own space of course! :)
Hi! I'm A.T.! I was found as a stray kitten with an injured tail. I've been staying with the nice people at Crago while I heal from having my tail amputated. Its taking some getting used to but I'm already pouncing around my kennel with my toys! I've heard the doctors say my "tail" looks like its healing very well! Its been so nice recovering here! All throughout the day techs, doctors, receptionists, and assistants come back and check on me to make sure I'm doing alright. They say I have the loudest purr they've heard! They also say when I first came in I was feral, whatever that is. I was super scared at first. I spat and hissed at everyone who came up to me. But after my surgery I decided these people were here to help me and they've all shown me so much love! On a normal day you can find me dunking my toy mice in my water bowl and chewing on litter. Although, I don't think the techs like when I do that. I'll be going to my forever home soon. One of the staff has a sister kitten for me who is a little older than me. We are going to play with all day every day!
