I haven’t found a box I don’t like!

July 2013 Pet of the Month

Meet Stella!

Name: Stella

Breed: Orange Tabby

Likes: Food. And did I say food? She likes to tease her big sister and knock small objects off countertops. She likes to lie on her back and let me pet her under her arms.

I may be built like a fireplug, but I move fast as a cannonball.

Dislikes: Having her claws clipped. Dislikes jumping onto high landing places.

About […]

April 2013 Pet of the Month

Meet Norman!

Name: Norman

Breed: Tuxedo

Likes: Leaning on Mom, laying on Mom, anything ON Mom especially while watching TV; displaying my tummy across the carpet in front of the door when Mom comes home so she cannot pass without a mandatory belly rub first; pathetically reaching up like a 2-year-old to be held over the left shoulder (because for some reason the right shoulder is very […]
