If you are looking for a cat with a BIG personality, Tiger is your kind of guy.  This cat will love to chase around your house playing with toys and when he is done, he will curl up in your lap being as sweet as can be.

Jess is a little timid until he gets to know people.

Some cats, like Jess are shy and take time to warm up to new people.   Our coordinator says offering Jess a treat or brushing his hair helps ease his timid nature, but this cat will probably need a guardian who is very patient.

Tammie & Ike

Written by Cecilia Isberg

After the very sad time of losing a loved dog, it can be a difficult and sensitive decision when you are ready to adopt a new dog. You have to grieve and come to terms with the loss of your previous dog in a healthy manner. The time that it takes is different for everyone and there is no right or wrong period before you feel ready to invite a new pet into your home. However, when that time arrives, it is a very exciting experience full of awaiting memories.

Tammie was feeling slightly reluctant to adopt another dog after her faithful companion, a shepherd mix named Scamp, had passed away. It is normal to feel uneasy at first because we don’t want to feel as though we are replacing a departed pet with a new one, nor do we want to find ourselves comparing our new pet to our beloved lost animal.

Tammie felt as though her home was just “empty” without the sound of a jingling collar or a loyal friend to greet her at the door each day.  She got word of a Great Dane mix at Heaven Can Wait that needed a home. She grew up with Great Danes and always had a fondness for them. After seeing some photos of Ike, a huge loveable gentle giant, she knew that he had to become part of her family.

Ike had been with Heaven Can Wait for quite a while, waiting to be adopted.  Each week he sat patiently in his pen at the adoption center as people passed him by for smaller dogs.  Our dog coordinators said he smiled from “ear to ear” when Tammie came to meet him.

At first Ike was a mama’s boy. He took some time warming up to Tammie’s husband and her sons. In fact, Ike didn’t seem to be a fan of boys or men in general.  As an enrollee in Heaven Can Wait’s Pups on Parole program, Ike had spent several months at the women’s correctional facility and apparently developed a soft spot for women.

However, he warmed up to the boys after spending some quality time with them. Tammie’s husband brought Ike along on a camping trip and he has literally been man’s best friend ever since.

Ike has become a wonderful family pet. He thinks he is a little lap dog and loves to cuddle.  He also loves having his picture taken and even smiles at the camera. Thanks to his gentle nature not only has he earned his spot on the couch, but also a spot in Tammie’s heart.

Heaven Can Wait holds cat and dog adoptions each weekend inside PetSmart at 7050 Arroyo Crossing Pkwy. (off I-215 and S. Rainbow).  Cats are adopted Thursday afternoon – Sunday and dogs are available on Saturdays.  Check out all the pets at: www.hcws.org

Bobbins In Paradise

Max doesn’t have to sit in a laundry basket anymore, thanks to a community sewing group that is making pet beds from leftover fabric.

By Carol Lisowski

Do you love animals?  Do you love to sew or quilt?  Do you believe in recycling?  If you answered yes to these questions, you might be interested in joining a small group of creative seamstresses that make cat and dog beds out of scrap material.  These women take leftover pieces of fabric, which would normally be thrown out and make comfy, soft beds where pets can snooze. 

Not only is the outside made of scrap material, but the filling is made of approximately half-inch wide strips of excess cloth.  The beds are not overly filled and are just right for cats to knead into their perfect resting spot.  Dogs love them because they can maneuver the filling around to where it makes the best place to grab a quick nap or sleep through the night.

The idea was launched at the Bobbins in Paradise sewing group through the Clark County Paradise Community Center.  A sewing enthusiast, who is also a volunteer at the Heaven Can Wait Adoption Center, brought a bed she made and she put it in the center of a dog enclosure.  One of the dogs immediately walked all the way around it to check it out, and then claimed it for himself by plunking himself down.   

The beds are such a success that HCWS made them available for purchase at a nominal fee through our Spay and Neuter Clinic (546 N. Eastern Ave. #175) and at our monthly Warehouse Sales (6360 Annie Oakley).

“It’s so nice to have our scraps go to a good cause,” said Kathy Adkins from Bobbins in Paradise.

If this sounds like something you would like to do, the Paradise Community Center is located at 4775 S. McLeod in Las Vegas.  Bobbins in Paradise is open to all level of sewers or quilters, and you do not need to live in the Paradise area to join their group.  If you share a love of sewing or quilting, this could be a fun place for you to pursue your sewing interests.

Meet Max and all of the cats and dogs waiting for new homes at the Heaven Can Wait Adoption Center each weekend.  Cats can be adopted Thursday – Sunday and dogs are available Saturday at 7050 Arroyo Crossing Parkway inside Petsmart.  You can preview our adorable cats at: http://www.hcws.org/adoptions/cat-adoptions.
