At first glance, siblings Noah and Nicola look very much alike, both gray tabbies about nine months old. Nicola is much smaller than Noah, but the difference doesn’t end there, because their personalities are polar opposites. Wave a wand toy in the vicinity of Nicola and she will come running, an energetic playful sweet girl. Urging her brother, Noah, to join in the fun, she knows he will take part, but only until he spots an empty lap. Then forget all this playing nonsense, there is snuggling and petting ahead. Different strokes for different folks!
Sisters Gema and Cassie, medium-large beauties a little over two and a half years old, are unique. Gema is a shy, timid girl, nervous in new situations. Once she’s comfortable, she is a darling. Sweet, submissive, eager to please, she loves to play with other dogs (preferably small ones). She needs a securely walled space … she can climb and jump just about anything, but she’s happy to curl up at your feet and gaze at you lovingly. Cassie, an absolute darling, immediately rolls over for a belly rub before going for a walk. She is a bit nervous on the street and, at times, needs coaxing, but she enjoys playing and running in the exercise area with her playgroup buddies. Cassie is the type of dog who wants nothing more than to be by your side and would be a great dog for someone who is home a lot and wants a four-legged friend for company.
