April pets of the month are sure to please!
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
We are highlighting four particularly charming animals this month, Café and Cairo (cats) and Boo and Sable (dogs). Café and Cairo came to the SPA a few weeks ago with their tearful owner, who had developed serious medical issues and is no longer able to care for them. For Café, this was her second arrival, having been adopted from here originally last summer. She obviously had fond memories of her time with us, immediately rediscovering all the familiar nooks and crannies, greeting old and new friends, then thrilled to discover we had a new hammock that called out her name. Café is a year-and-a-half old, cream-colored, blue-eyed beauty with luxuriant long fur. Not just another pretty face, she is both tranquil and affectionate.
Cairo, totally new to us, seemed to absorb the calm manner of her housemate, Café, and settled into her new environment very quickly. A two-year-old mellow sweet cat, her looks are stunning. With a cream background artistically shaded in velvety brown accents and a particularly dramatic tail, Cairo also has piercing dark blue exotic eyes just meant to gaze into yours.
Boo and Sable, both Lab mixes, are our featured dogs. Boo arrived at the SPA in July 2013 as a seven-week-old puppy and has blossomed into a lovely young lady. She is full of energy and loves to play, run and give kisses. She is a strong, sweet girl. Since she has been at the SPA for her whole life, she is a little shy at first with new people, but warms up quickly. She would be a wonderful companion.
Sable is a special lady, a Lab/pit mix, and as gentle and good-natured as any dog we’ve ever had. This 18-month-old is calm, mellow, gets along with other dogs, loves people, and is super smart. She walks beautifully on leash, knows how to sit, and is just a delight. She doesn’t let anything faze her. Her personality is reminiscent of “Nana,” the gentle dog in Peter Pan. She would be a terrific pet for the right person or family.
