Red Rocket is an adorable dachshund who was hit by a car, lost his left front leg, and was abandoned by his owner. He was taken to Heartland Animal Hospital where the hospital staff ministered to his needs with the help of monies from the Magnum Fund. PALS Animal Rescue was charged with screening prospective adoptive families and we applied to welcome him into our home. He's ours now and we're blogging to share his continued adventures!

In for a penny, in for a pound. After the acquisition of "Kojo" who was immediately appropriated as a sleeping device by Red Rocket, I felt the need to provide a snuggling space for the feline members of the Red Rocket family. I seriously considered the heated pet bed but the cheapskate in me overruled that proposition. So I headed to the feline products aisle of Petsmart and pondered the offerings. A cat house? No, Kasha can sometimes be afraid of enclosed spaces after that incident of getting shut into the bathroom cabinet. One of those carpet-covered climbers? More exepensive and uglier than the heated pet bed. What is this cardboard thing that looks like the bottom of a smashed shoebox? A cat cradle which multi-functions as a scratcher and bed. They will never use this, I think, as I put it into the shopping cart. Oh boy was I wrong...
