Our April Pets of the Month Are Foolproof!
By Lynn Weisberg and Joan DiPiero
Spring is here and our two lovely girls, Lupita and Isabella, are enjoying the warmer weather as they spring into action daily. Both are fun, feisty, active, intelligent, and charming. Lupita, a small/medium 8-month-old youngster, adores people. She can’t wait to go for her daily walks, and when she’s with the other dogs in her play group, she loves racing up and down the exercise area and teasing the others. She is fearless, loyal, and really adorable. Her tail is basically just a stump, (she came to us as a puppy that way), but she has no problem wagging it; in fact, her whole body wags! Isabella, 11-1/2 months old, wants to play all day. A bundle of energy, she would love an owner who wants to exercise with her. She’s not shy about bestowing kisses, and enjoys a little lap time too. Both girls would make excellent family pets.
Although Balki is 11 months old, he doesn’t act like some of our more aloof, independent teenagers. Not afraid of showing his emotions, this sleek black boy is always ready to climb on laps, preferring to reach up high to our chin level so we can pet his entire body. Tranquil and easygoing, he’s a wonderful cat. Treasure came to us with her litter of kittens, not much more than a kitten herself. Although she was a nurturing mom, she has decided that she’s paid her dues and wants a home with no other cats. As an only child, Treasure guarantees that she’ll give her adopter the love equivalent of at least three cats, promising to sit on laps for hours on end. A black and white cutie with splotches on her nose and chin, she is one of our most affectionate cats.
