Start the New Year Right: Meet Our January 2015 Pets of the Month!
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
We are starting the New Year by highlighting four wonderful pets waiting for forever homes: Georgie and Gustavo, cats; and Cassie and Tessie, dogs. Ten-month-old brothers Georgie and Gustavo have been through a lot in their short lives. Adopted together when they were small kittens, they had several happy months in their new home until the family situation deteriorated and they were brought back to the SPA. We were sad for them, but these cheerful siblings took their return in stride, settling in well. They are a joy to be around although totally different both in appearance and personality. Georgie has short orange fur and is a ball of energy, playful, and always the ringleader of the cat antics. Gustavo, with long lustrous black fur, is mellower, content to stay on the sidelines as long as he is given his fair share of petting. As different as these brothers are, their bond is strong. Wherever one is, the other one follows, especially during naptime when they curl up against each other, snoozing away. We would love for them to find a new home together since they are so devoted to each other.
Cassie is a medium-large, extremely affectionate, three-year-old blond beauty who adores people. She waits quietly for her walk, and when approached, rolls over, hoping for a preliminary belly rub. She is a strong, energetic young lady and although fairly large, she believes she is a lap dog and soaks up attention. At the SPA since October 2012, Cassie wants only to attach herself to her very own forever human.
Tessie is a beautiful Golden Retriever mix with lovely red-gold fur. A little over two years old, at first she is a bit timid, especially with new people. But after she knows you, her entire body wags with delight when she sees you. She is nervous being walked on the street but loves to run and play in quieter, protected areas. She responds well to gentle, firm coaxing and praise. Tessie would be best as the only animal in the home and she’ll make a delightful companion.
