Squeakers and Blaster

Daina wrote,  It's hard to believe that it's been almost two wheeks since I adopted two charming guinea pigs. Blaster and Squeakers are getting along fine in their new shared home, but I'm learning that they couldn't be much more different from each other. Blaster hates being petted unless he's picked up and cuddled as well, and Squeakers hates being picked up but enjoys being petted. Squeakers is a fussy eater, and Blaster will chomp anything in front of him, fingers included! I spoil both these guys with fresh veggies and hay twice a day, but make sure to clean up before bed, as well as changing their food bowl and water bottle, and any parts of the bedding that get particularly soiled. Thanks from all three of us (wheek, wheek!)  Guinea Pig info.    www.guinealynx.info/healthycavy.html



Lexi 10-14D

Donna wrote, Lexi is the newest addition to our family! She arrived just 2 months after we lost our beloved Bonnie, whom we had adopted from CAP 11 years ago. Losing Bonnie was heart wrenching and we were slow to add a family member as we just weren't ready. We finally decided to visit and low and behold - there was Lexi. In her short time with us she has done so much to lighten our hearts and energize our spirit. She has a forever home with us.

Sarah wrote, My husband and I fell in love with Duncan the moment we laid eyes on him. He has been a great companion for our other dachshund and he is a very loving boy. He immediately made himself at home snuggling up with his humans and his sister. Duncan likes going for walks and giving lots of kisses and cuddles. We are very happy to have him in our family. 


Haggis 1014aC

Wendy wrote,   I brought my husband in to pick a kitten for his birthday. It had to be a red tabby male as we've both had them when growing up and find them to be great characters. He chose Sparrow and we re-named him Haggis (we're from scotland!). After bringing him home the poor thing had a respiratory infection but has now recovered and is tearing round the house, chewing toes and sneaking under the covers to sleep. My 5yr old twins adore him and he plays with them for hours. He is a gorgeous, loving and playful kitten and has settled right in to our family.


Maggie 10-14C

Bill wrote,  Maggie has adapted "perfectly" to our home and loves playing and sleeping on our back porch. She's a sweet pet and we're so pleased to have her as part of our family.
