This week’s Featured Fur Monsters come from ICHC regular Lynne Lane (furrgetmenot). Read along as she tells the story of her two adorable fur babies—Nugget and Lacey.
Lynne was always a cat person, but allergies forced her to live with her 6 beloved cats in constant pain.
“I was a cat person, and loved living with cats most of my life. I had six cats when my allergies grew to became so severe that a doctor told me that I could no longer have cats. I was totally devastated, and just could not stop crying; resolved to suffer living with them, rather than displacing them from the only home they had ever known.. until they went to the Rainbow Bridge from old age.”
After her cats passed, Lynn found comfort by becoming a part of the ICHC community where she met new friends and was able to enjoy cats again (even if it was from afar.)
“Visiting the ICHC website every day has been my therapy, and has healed my heart by bringing me close to cats without having to live with them. I’ve met the most fantastic, warm-hearted, generous friends on here, too!”
This is where Nugget comes in. Lynne’s husband surprised her with a poodle pup, a new fur baby she could take care of allergy free!
“I could not believe my eyes! I never expected to get a poodle, and didn’t recall if my husband knew I had wanted one my whole life long (never ever expecting to GET one)!”
Nugget was happy in his new home, but developed separation anxiety and other problems. He needed a friend!
Lynn and her husband adopted Lacey, Nugget’s sister, and together both of them LOVE playing with their dozens of toys. Watch their “Toy-nado” below!
Now, Nugget and Lacey are big parts of the ICHC community. Check out “Nugget’s Word of the Day” here.
The pups most recent project is Kamp PuppyKakes, a place where pups can “take weird and silly selfies or show off the goofy stuff that goggies do!”
