1-year-old. Neutered male. Domestic shorthair. Brown tiger. I like to spend my time cozied up in a box to watch the world go by or take a nice nap.

Crocs is a 2-year-old kitty that has a unique back leg that tends to hang out under his belly. This does not stop him from enjoying life, but he will have to be an indoor cat. Crocs is a sweet boy.  He is unsure of his feline friends, but may do well with a mellow cat. This Georgia boy is excited for you to make him a permanent Vermont resident!! You can apply for Crocs by going to our website spfldhumane.org and filling out an application or call 802-885-3997 for any questions.

“I’m a 9-year-old spayed female. I have returned after recently being adopted. I’ll be moving into my new home to live with my new human family, soon – I just haven’t met them yet, but I know I will just love them when I do, and them me! I would be most content being the only cat in the home, but I have lots of love and purrrsonality to go around, so that will be no problem. So, if you think I could be the cat for you, then why not call.”

Remembering downtown pharmacists from yesteryear

May 15, 2024
When I saw the obituary for Lucian Wiskoski back in March I realized that he was the last of Rutland’s downtown pharmacists whom I had the pleasure of knowing from childhood into adulthood.

It was 30 years ago today

May 15, 2024
