Isabella is 4 years young, born November 28, 2016 (estimate). This precious lady was born with Radial Hypoplasia (twisty arms) and a very rare, very serious 4-part heart defect called Tetrology of Fallot. She was found abandoned in a field and taken to SLO Animal Services. She was then rescued by Woods Humane Society which is when I first saw this beauty on their website. She was in my heart at first glance and so I adopted her and brought her to her forever home. She is exercise intolerant, although she loves to play. When she does play or run, or even eat, she has to take many breaks and lays on her side to regulate her heart for 3-4 minutes, sometimes longer. It is painful to watch her struggle to breathe, but I stay present with her and always sing softly to her ("Go Lassie, Go") during these times. It seems to comfort her in her distress and difficulty breathing because her li'l tail wags when I sing. (Albeit, it could be an annoyance wag from hearing my voice, lol) This little lady is a fighter and her prognosis was very, very poor. Cats with Tetrology of Fallot generally don't live past a year and a half. Isabella will be 5 in November! Ahhh, the power of love! She is very independent, playful, feisty and highly loveable and loving when she's in the mood to be loving, lol. Stands often on her hind legs for long periods of time like a Meerkat. She sleeps in a ball near my legs every night and is such a comfort for me. Isabella's favorite toys are the motion mouse, laser light and the butterfly spinner. She likes girl cats and is very picky about boy cats and will swipe at anyone giving her any problems! She has five siblings, 4 others with special needs.


Hi! My name is Kallie and I live here at Nan's Pre-Owned Books in Grover Beach!


I'm 14-years-old and I LOVE people! I love to lay around and wait for people to come up and pet me.


My favorite thing to do is follow the customers around until I catch their attention.


Living in a bookstore is so much fun because I get to relax in peace and quiet - and so many friends come in to see me!


I also get to meet new friends all the time. Happy Pride, SLO County!


Lil Kaylee lives in San Luis Obispo right next to a tree where several annoying ravens have built a nest.


She spends her days hissing at them and awaiting the fresh torment of babies.


She loves to attack feet under quilts and can generally be found curled up on the lap of whomever is attending a Zoom meeting at the time.


"You can't muzzle a maverick," explains


This is Maverick; she embodies her name.


She might purr when you pet her; she might bite, so careful.


She comes and goes as she pleases, but she'll sit on your lap all day if you let her.


Don't try to confine her and she'll always come home.


Sasha says gay rights are comfy!


Smokey, also known as Cheeky, is a two year old gray kitty.


He is named after a gray street cat from his parents hometown.


Smokey is distinguished, smart, and playful.


He likes his personal space, but always likes to be sitting near his mom and dad and tolerates being carried around like a baby.


He enjoys biting plastic, staring contemplatively out the window, and sitting on folded laundry.


Tom Bombadil ("Tommy") is about 8 years old and I adopted him from Animal Services this last November. He was an owner surrender.


Tommy is a polydactyl boy which means he has thumbs on his paws! Very adorable. Tommy doesn't always like to go in the litterboxes and so there are many pee-pads around the house where he likes to go that get changed often. I tried diapers with him, but he won't have it, lol. He is so loving on a constant basis and always wants to smoosh into me wherever I am. When I sleep, he tries to lay across my face, head, body; a very connecting kinda guy! He is constantly reaching out with his paw to his siblings and to me.


Tommy's favorite toys are: Everything and anything! A very content boy.


Willow is 22 months young.


She loves playing fetch, snuggling on her favorite rainbow wool blanket, and chirping at birds through the window.




Charlie is a Slo-cal (local) 4 year old mixed breed adopted from the local Woods Humane Society by his parents Andrew and Meredith.


He LOVES chasing and playing with the big dogs at the Laguna lake dog park & equally loves playing fetch with any tennis ball he can find!



My name is Coco.


I love to go on walks and lay in the grass and if I don’t find grass I toss in the mud; I’m not picky.


I tend to pee when ever I am excited to see my family , even if they are only gone for 5 minutes.


I am energetic and a tiny bit sassy but everyone loves me anyway!



Dorothy (she/her) was rescued from a field where she was left abandoned.


She fell into my life and has rescued me ever since.


She is my love, my strength, and I'm grateful for her every day!


I love my sassy girl!

I’m a big ally and love to strut my PRIDE all year long.

Leo is a super lively golden doodle who loves people and is scared of other dogs.


He is a large 5 foot 1 lion-esque looking puppy, (currently only 10 months old), and he will automatically become friends with any new person.


He loves biting and hates peanut butter, and despises when he's clean.


He's also very opinionated and very much has a personality of his own.
