I am on a mission, and that mission involves connecting pets in the area with their forever home. There are dozens of animals on the SouthCoast living in shelters, so I have teamed up with a few to get as many adopted as possible. From bunnies to puppies, the shelters and I have been working hard to give a voice to these wonderful animals each Wednesday, and for this week’s Wet Nose Wednesday, it’s a family affair.

This sweet trio arrived at CARE Southcoast in Acushnet after their owner was moving and could not take them along. Little Mama, Mittens, and Bouji absolutely love each other and hang out together all day long. Ruth Marshman, the director of CARE Southcoast, calls them the three musketeers. Mom is five years old, and her little ones are two years old. CARE hopes to keep them together, so they are searching for a family that has a love for cats.

All three cats are extremely friendly and are great around other animals. They also do well with children and will become your best friend if you give them a lifetime’s supply of back scratches. Treats always help, too.

Little Mama, Mittens, and Bouji are up to date on all their veterinary appointments, and now they patiently wait to meet their forever family.

If this little family of felines sounds like a good fit for you, visit CARE Southcoast online for more information.

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
