Seeking Families for our Pets

We need to find good homes for a few of our pets. Our lifestyle, which now includes two part-time jobs (with full-time workloads) and two small children, no longer provides the money, time, or energy to provide the kind of care that they need. We love these animals dearly, but we can't take care of them anymore. So, I present them to you, my readers, hoping that maybe you or someone you know will be interested in providing a good home for them.

Jonah is a four year-old small gray cat with a big personality. He's our little Napoleon, standing up for himself and putting everyone in their place (below him, of course). He's very affectionate and particularly fond of ladies. (He's been a momma's boy from day one.)

Elijah is a five year-old large orange tabby cat. He's very laid back and easy going. He's shy with strangers at first, but loving and social once he knows you're a friend. He and Jonah are buddies, but we think they will adjust if they end up going to separate homes.

Cooper is a beautiful, four year-old, faun boxer. He's truly a joyful pet, loving, eager to please, and great with kids. Like most boxers, who are known for exuberance and clowning, he needs firm, consistent direction (and responds very well to it). We are the most brokenhearted about parting with Cooper, but he really needs a family that can provide lots of attention, play time, and intentional exercise.

All of our pets have been kept up-to-date on their vaccinations (we have some of the records) and regularly groomed (until recently).

If you or someone you know are interested in providing a good, safe, loving home to one of these animals, please let me know. We live in Dayton, OH and would be happy to absorb some travel expenses to be sure they are in a good family.

Another step in the life of a family, a sad one this time. I do hope you find happy homes for each in a jiffy - and I know this has to hurt. Your son & daughter are bautiful.
