Our holiday pets of the month
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
Our December featured cats are Leon and Betsy, each about five months old, a great age for adoption: young enough to play and old enough that their personalities are developed. Betsy is a black and white beauty with longish hair and a double smudge on her chin. Soft as a bunny, playful and affectionate, she’s a darling. Her three sisters, Bonnie, Brynn, and Belinda are available also, all showing variations of black and white, so, of course, we call them the “Connect-the-Dots” sisters.
Leon is a very handsome boy, white with gray tabby markings. He is one of our more affectionate boys, crawling up our legs if he thinks we’ve been ignoring him and giving us a very light pat to remind us that he hasn’t received his daily share of attention.
Both these kittens are that perfect combination of tranquility, friskiness and affection, and would make cozy company for the holidays.
Nacho and Tawny are two of our most lovable dogs. Nacho is a medium-sized handsome boy, just under two years old, with the most wonderful, affectionate personality ever! He is a charmer, who loves to play, walk, or just sit by your side. He is happy to see everyone and he melts your heart with his joy and sweetness. He is loyal, gentle and altogether fabulous.
Tawny is a medium-sized one-year-old sweetheart. She is mellow, loves to play with other dogs and happily gives them kisses. She would be a great protector because she looks fierce when she barks. The truth is she’s really a gentle soul who patiently soaks up as much attention as you are willing to give her. She still tries to get into our laps and doesn’t realize that she’s about 40 pounds heavier than she was as a baby. Belly rubs are a favorite activity.
Nacho and Tawny would make wonderful additions to anyone’s home, and would reward you with a lifetime of love.
