Holiday Pets of the Month
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
Celebrate the holidays with a new pet at your side! How about Mikey, Raven, Jacaranda, or Annie? Beauties Mikey and Raven are smart, fun dogs, eager to learn. Mikey, about 8 months old, was living on the street when he was spotted by a couple who began feeding him. He would eagerly greet them, whimpering with happiness. They were unable to adopt him due to a highly allergic family member, but they worried about him constantly. Blossoming at the SPA, he walks well on leash, gets along with others, loves human attention, and is a sweetie pie. He is not a crazy barker and he patiently waits for his turn for a walk.
Raven came in as a young pup with her mother (Stella) and three siblings. She is a medium-sized, slender 9-1/2-month-old who greets every day with a smile and a wag. She is super smart and loves being with other dogs; when she first met her roommate, she couldn’t stop kissing him! (Poor Rambo didn’t know what to make of her, but they are best buddies now.) She is a delight.
Annie and Jacaranda, petite six-month-old cats, have stolen our hearts. Jacaranda is a pretty, tranquil girl who, although a little shy, refuses to live with kittens her own age, preferring instead to be housed in the adult area. Obviously she relishes her role as the baby of the group, where she stands out from the crowd. With pearly white bunny-like fur and lovely pale blue eyes, she is a real snuggler.
Annie arrived only a short time ago, yet made herself at home almost immediately. Younger than most of her roommates, she doesn’t tolerate any nonsense from her elders, putting them in their place when they are a little rough with her. Feisty though she might seem, a different side appears when she is picked up. While being held like a baby, Annie purrs away without a care in the world, and is always reluctant to leave. She is a very cute calico girl, with wide gazing eyes and a charming chunky face.
