Ninety-three-year-old Doris Williams in Los Osos wrote in about her two missing cats. Although we don’t typically publish letters about missing animals (that’s my disclaimer so this column doesn’t turn into the classifieds section), this one couldn’t help but melt my heart. This is what she wrote:
Cody and Angelo are waiting at the San Luis Obispo County Animal Services shelter for their forever homes. The two pooches are examples of the wide variety of dogs available for adoption at the shelter.
Breanna Moore and her 7-year-old son, Anthony, were recently reunited with their Ragdoll Persian cat, Truckee, about two years after the cat went missing in the Paso Robles countryside — Moore saw her on a Facebook group for lost pets.
I’m happy to report that two kittens — Nikki and Nemo — that were born on Christmas Eve and found by the family dog in a cold, drafty shed in rural Paso Robles, were adopted and tested negative for FIV, the feline equivalent to AIDS, after a previous false positive test.
