PEI Humane Society’s 12 Strays of Christmas 2021 – Day 3
CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI – Editor’s Note: Animals may already be adopted at the time of printing.
The 12 Strays of Christmas are back. This joint effort between the PEI Humane Society and The Guardian features animals searching for their forever homes. The project will run throughout the holidays.
Day 3. Small and Obi:
Little and Obi are a bonded couple and are to be adopted together. They are currently in foster care and settle quite easily in a new family environment. They are both friendly but don’t like to be picked up and handled too much. However, they will come straight to you and ask for pets. And they’re big fans of hugs. Little is predominantly gray and Obi is a very traditional looking gray tabby cat, both weigh over eight pounds and have lived with dogs in the past.
PEIHS Adoption Tip # 3: The PEI Humane Society offers a rehabilitative housing approach. This means that he seeks to overcome behavioral barriers before offering an animal for adoption. This can extend an animal’s stay at the shelter, but ultimately helps the new family learn more about them. For anyone wishing to adopt an animal but having concerns about adopting an animal with behavioral issues, the PEIHS can provide post-adoption support.

Day 2. Roger and Buddy:
Roger and Buddy are a bonded duo and need to be adopted together as they are best friends in the world. They are a year old but they are already big boys – Roger weighs 12.8 pounds and Buddy weighs 11 pounds. The two cats love to cuddle and play, as well as perching on their cat tree to watch the world go by.
PEIHS Adoption Tip # 2: Did you know that bonded pairs can sometimes be easier to bring home than adopting a single animal? Cats like Roger and Buddy, who have a best friend or sibling, find it easier to adjust to a new environment, like a new home, because they have their best friend with them. This means they can spend less time hiding under your bed at first and more time cuddling on the sofa with you.
Day 1. Harmony:
Harmony, a sociable and dynamic two-year-old cat, is chatty and friendly, and loves animals and the scratches under her chin. She is also a big fan of crumpled bullets and loves the enrichment moments. She has lived with other cats and dogs (large and small), so she is an ideal addition to a furry family.
PEIHS Adoption Tip # 1: Did you know that the PEI Humane Society writes profiles for each of its animals? These profiles are put online when each animal is available for adoption. Reading the animal’s profile before applying for adoption will educate people about any medical or behavioral needs the animal may have.
