Breed: Abyssinian (cinnamon)

Likes: Having his belly rubbed; sleeping in his heated bed or under the covers with us; FOOD; sitting like a sphinx; eating plastic then throwing […]

May 2017 Pet of the Month

Meet Grant!

Name: Grant Mitchell

Breed: Flame Point Siamese

Likes: Food, including whatever my human drops on the floor or forgets on the counter. (I have been known to steal the toasted half of a bagel when my human isn’t looking.) My favorite pastime includes roaming the apartment and window gazing while holding my toy “Mousie” in my mouth. I also love tussling with my brother, Charlie Slater, […]

Meet Gracie!

I meow therefore I am.

Dislikes: Gracie dislikes the vacuum cleaner, a ringing telephone, and […]
