Pets of the week- Piper and Larry 


Hello! Piper here with my older brother Larry. We are like two peas in a pod, just love hanging out together! We came to the shelter from another rescue who thought we would have a better chance of finding a new family here. We were living on the streets of Boston where a nice man was taking care of us. We are glad to be here at the shelter and we are ready to find a loving home we can call our own. We are a little shy and will take a little while to settle in but we are sure with some time and patience we both will have lots of love to give. If you have room for two felines in your home please come on down and meet me and my brother Larry. Did I mention how pretty I am? For more information about Piper and Larry and all of the available animals at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter please check our website: http://www.capeannanimalaid.org. Our 2016 Dog Rescue Reunion is set for Saturday June 4th. You can register online.

 

A-Train Orchestra Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line…come on and have a swingin good time! 8:30pm 5.19.2016

dave-sag-bw

Nobody has to cross the bridge this week as I ask several Rockportoricans to carefully drive home drunk after an emancipating evening of heavenly swinging back door blues. I’m talking the genetically altered father and son duo of Rikki and Alec Razdan  and their severely dyspeptic  rhythm section including master cocktail drummer David “Doc” Vincent, who specializes in bopping on tables , chairs and beer bottles (and empties a few, too) and the redoubtable  Mr. Dan Whelan, on catarrh, who can wheeze his way through any style.

I gotta keep up with these guys, so an emergency vehicle will be on standby for most of the night, before they, too, drive home with one eye closed, like I do. Please don’t listen to me,I may be kidding. Then again….

Lisa Marie to Host The Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight! The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 4.28.2016 The Joint will be jumpin!

Dave says,

Well,I’ve signed up for elective surgery on my flabby elbow skin (hetero-weenisectomy) this Thursday and will be be busy recuperating with a Martini or three, so , in the meantime, why not stop holding your breath and inhale a little bit of Ms. Lisa Marie who will be charging in on her caparisoned horse, lance aboiling ,to skewer you with another night of electro-convulsive blues, and other music. And she’s bringing along the right people. She’s got Johnny Juxo to bang his shoe on the keyboard, “Silverfish” Steve on scratchy catarrh, and Dana “Bonefish” Bonardi on the bangulators. Sounds like a plan. Me, I’ll be showing up late in my black suit, in case you wanna see what I look like when I buy the farm! (minus the formaldehyde).

Pet of the week-Simba

  

Super Senior Simba here! I am a sweet and mellow fellow with an affectionate nature. I like to relax in sunny window perches and taking long cat naps. I am looking forward to enjoying my Golden Years by taking things slow, snacking often, playing freely and loving without abandon. How about you? I am looking for a family who is willing and able to love me for the rest of my days. Maybe this could be you? Then stop by and visit with me today! The Super Seniors program is supported in part by a grant from the Petco Foundation. Please check out our website for all available animals and to support us in our Gloucester Pride Stride Effort to raise funds for veterinary care. http://www.capeannanimalaid.org
