Be My Valentine: Our February 2015 Pets of the Month
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
Love is in the air this month, and it’s no different at the SPA. We have some doggy couples that are totally devoted to each other and that don’t like to be separated for even a few minutes! Macy and Batman are one such couple. Macy, about 2-1/2 years old, has been at the shelter since she was a puppy, having been rescued by a woman who saw her being abused along with three other pups. At first she is very shy with new people, but once she knows you, she is a loving, affectionate, and darling girl. Batman, her roommate, has become the love of her life. He is a year old and their favorite activity is racing in the exercise area. Macy is always in the lead; Batman always chases. No dog ever catches Macy, but Batman sure loves trying. They are both on the small size, and we hope they’ll be adopted together, since this is a love story that deserves a happy ending. Maybe you are the human valentine they are searching for?
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we are featuring two of our sweetest male cats, Iggy and Barney. Iggy is turning one year old this month. He has a sleek black coat saved from total darkness by a white-tipped tail, very cute indeed. This mellow boy is our official welcoming cat, not that he seeks out the newcomers, but they manage to find him, usually nestled in the top cubby of the cat condo. He lets them snuggle with him, then reassures them with his deep purring. Who wouldn’t feel welcome with Iggy as a friend? Iggy doesn’t discriminate against people, either—he’s an equal opportunity snuggler. Barney showed up as a frightened five-month-old and spent most of his first few days here sharing Iggy’s space. Now gaining more confidence, he’s content lolling on a shelf in the sun, welcoming petting, especially where his tummy is involved. He’s a handsome little guy with an apricot-colored coat and a gentle disposition.
