Enhance Your Holidays with a December Pet of the Month
From the SPA
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
What better way to enjoy the holidays than by curling up with an SPA cat or dog in front of a cozy fireplace? For December, we’re highlighting Sara, Winifred, Bandit, and Batman to fit the bill. Seven-month-old Sara somehow wound up in an area populated by feral cats that refused to have anything to do with her. Her rescuer could see right away that Sara wasn’t like the others—she was a sweet, friendly kitten who responded immediately to an outreached hand and human attention. Sara has become an SPA delight, fitting in with kittens, older cats, and volunteers. A picture-perfect example of a black and white tuxedo cat, she’s ready for a night out on the town or preferably quiet nights at home with you.
Winifred arrived with two healthy kittens in tow, a wonderful mom who’s not much more than a kitten herself, less than twelve months old. The kittens are on their own now and it’s time for Winifred to have some attention returned to her. A petite dilute calico girl, she’s affectionate and plays as joyfully as her babies do.
Bandit was trying to survive in a field, eating garbage, and huddling unsuccessfully on a neighbor’s doorstep to escape the rain when she was rescued. When we took her in she was frightened and thin, with a full complement of fleas and parasites, but she soon realized that food, shelter, and love was her new reality! About a year old, small, with a glossy black and white coat, she adores people (children and adults), but is fussy about other dogs. She prefers them small and male!
Batman is a small, handsome male, who was brought to the SPA in April, along with his brother Robin (of course)! This happy, friendly, delightful dog doesn’t need a cape to fly, just his own legs. He gets tremendous joy chasing after his girlfriend and cage mate, Macy! About two years old, he is an easygoing fellow, gets along well with other dogs, and loves to play, walk, and meet new people. Batman is waiting patiently for his home. Maybe he could share yours!
