Twin cities folks:

My cousin died very unexpectedly this weekend and left behind his beloved children, Bear (10-ish year old mutt) and Eaton (somewhat crabby cat). His friends and family are trying to keep them together, so I am trying to find a new home for them or a rescue group that could possibly foster them until one becomes available. Any ideas?

Description of the kids, from their former petsitter:

"Bear is a chow mix. He has the temperament of a happy puppy. I think he'd present his belly for rubs to an armed robber. He's a good boy and grazes at his dry food. No known health problems. His long coat benefits from regular brushing and ...professional grooming about once a month.

Eaton is a bit crotchey, but he's a good boy. He gets fed once a day, to prevent overeating. He won't eat the dog food, for some reason. They're used to a water filtration fountain/bowl, because Eaton has sensitive kidneys (due to age/weight?). When he's stressed, his stomach gets upset and he throws up. He's used to getting his nails trimmed by the groomer or vet. He has all of his claws."

Sorry to hear about your cousin. I hope they can find a home together. It's good that the petsitter is involved, maybe talk to their vet too. A lot of times vets know people who do fostering, or who may have lost their own pet and are looking for another.

He lived in North Minneapolis, but Bear and Eaton aren't tied to that area. I believe they are with animal control right now, until they get authorization from his brother to release them to someone.

Raspberrycomplaint - Thanks, those are good tips.
