November pets of the month would be very thankful to be adopted!
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
Our featured dogs are two youngsters who learned to follow the crumbs, Hansel and Gretel. For a long time, a neighbor’s dog spent most of her day near the SPA, waiting for a handout. She was somewhat aggressive, and although we tried, we couldn’t catch her to spay her. After her last litter, we finally succeeded, but by then two of her puppies had learned where the food was and started hanging out with her! We put them on our waiting list, sterilized and vaccinated them, but, by this time, they were following us on our walks, pushing their way into the SPA, and generally making it clear that they wanted to stay. They are now eight months old, and loveable, funny delightful dogs. Gretel is a gorgeous, calm, medium-sized mix with somewhat longer hair; Hansel is a shorthaired strong, stocky medium-sized fellow who delights in giving kisses and just wants to play. They followed the trail of crumbs right into our hearts and, we hope, yours.

Our highlighted cats are Charlotte and her daughter Cognac. Imagine our surprise when we found a rusted birdcage by our front door, not a parakeet or canary in sight. Instead, stuffed into this very small space was a mama cat with three kittens. Mom was a little stressed, but her babies thought this was just another normal moment of their short six-week stay on earth. During the week, mom (Charlotte) settled into her motherly routine and all the kittens adjusted well. Charlotte is a lovely, gentle cat, probably under two years old. With a cream and brown coat and azure blue eyes, she’s a beauty. All three kittens have Siamese markings and have inherited her blue eyes. Featured here is Cognac, a little girl with cute splotches of velvety brown. Visit her and her sister Chantelle and brother Cappuccino and see what playful sweet kittens they are, rolling around with each other and climbing all over their very patient mom.
