Please welcome our Waifs of the Week: Leigh, Chardonnay, Starr!

“Hi there! I’m so happy you are reading about me! My name is Leigh. What’s yours? As you can see from my pictures, I am a beautiful, dainty, shorthaired orange tabby girl with expressive golden eyes. I came to Wayside, as young mom with kittens, from another shelter that was low on space. My kitten-rearing days are over, and now I am ready to enjoy life as someone’s baby! I’m a sweet girl with a nice purr. I may be just a little shy when you first meet me, but I warm up quicker than a summer day in Kansas City. I enjoy attention and affection. I will let you know how much I am loving it with my soft purr and some gentle headbutts. Doesn’t that sound heavenly? It sure does to me! I’m so thankful to be here at Wayside, but I’m really excited, and ready, for a home to call my very own.  Do you think it could be with you?”

“Well hello there. Thanks for clicking on my photo. My name is Chardonnay. As you can see, I’m a large dog with a brown coat with some speckles on my chest. I am 4 years old. I am an excellent walker on leash. I am friendly and enjoy human companionship. I’ve been known to crawl into a lap or two and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE getting petted on my head and a few belly rubs as well. I know how to “sit” and “come” but would love to learn some more commands. I also love toys and do a pretty good job of releasing them when asked to “drop it.” I’d love to be part of a family that likes adventures as much as they like lounging around. I’m a great running partner, and I can also see myself getting into a Netflix binge session.  I think I do a pretty good job of both. If you are interested in meeting me, please come see me today. I can’t wait to join my new family!”

“Hello there! I’m an adorable little kitten! I am a bundle of fun in a small package and I am so ready for a new family to call my own. Kittens are so much fun and boy do we love to play! I will need some work on training but we will have a lot of fun along the way. Being such a youngster I will definitely need both physical and mental stimulation to help me stay well rounded. Give me some fun and interactive toys in the mix and we will have the time of our lives! I think I should also tell you that I love to cuddle. Curl up with me and I will purr to show you just how happy I am; cuddles are my favorite! If you are looking for a new buddy to bring you smiles and cheer, come on out to Wayside Waifs and ask to meet me!”
