October Pets of the Month
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
Our dogs of the month are sisters Nube and Cocoa. These eight-month old beauties were rescued from the campo by a couple of folks who had been feeding the mother and her pups until they were able to have the mother spayed and the puppies brought to the SPA. These two ladies are gorgeous. Cocoa has light cocoa brown fur mixed with blond and a bit of white. Nube is more grey with tan and white accents. Both are small/medium-sized and probably won’t be growing much more. They are friendly, curious, happy and playful dogs and like to go for walks. They also have a calm, tranquil side. Nube likes to climb on top of her tinaco so she can see what’s going on. Cocoa stretches out, one paw demurely on top of the other, as she watches the passing parade. They easily give kisses, receive affection, and like to cuddle. Each will blossom with the right owner.
Our cats of the month are sisters Deana and Diandra who came in with several other littermates mid-June and are now about five months old. Although both are calico, they are easy to tell apart. Deana has more vibrant black and orange markings mixed with white. Diandra has more muted colors, closer to gray and peach, a variety of calico termed “dilute.” Both these girls love to sit on laps as well as play with everything that’s not nailed down. Affectionate and playful, they would love to entertain you with their antics, and snuggle with you when playtime has ended.
Adopt any of these Pets of the Month during October and receive a free adoption kit. For dogs, the adoption kit is a toy, food, a collar, and a leash. For cats, the kit is a starter kit of a litter pan with litter, a scoop, and food.
