Pet of the Month Archive 2017
Likes: Cat treats, baked goods, cat treats, coffee, cat treats, popcorn, cat treats, and some more cat treats. Ear rubs (from base to tip) and face rubs. Laying on his humans’ torsos. Helping any workers who come into the house. Also, did we mention cat treats?

Likes: Fresh veggies; Hiding inside Triceratops skull aquarium ornament; Showing off dorsal fin
Dislikes: Bright lights; Any sudden movements
About Phineas Fish: We responded to a Craigslist ad. Free aquarium equipment, left over by a tenant. There was dark water left in the tank — then we noticed something moving. Phineas is a rescue fish. Phineas is a survivor.
Likes: Finbar loves to be outside – especially when it’s cold. When we can’t find him, we know to check his “man cave,” the second floor of our carriage house, where he has several cozy beds. He also likes water, which is unusual for most cats, but not for Maine Coons. Finbar does not flinch when heading into rain or snow. He is intrigued by the bathroom shower and, on occasion, jumps into the tub to get wet...
Likes: Getting brushed, wet-food, lots of pets from the human and oh did I say brushings?

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 up
Dislikes: Being picked up and going to the vet.
About Binky: Binky is extremely laid back and affectionate and loves company. He never wants to be picked up, but he will gladly jump in your lap for pets, and particularly loves...
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, getting pets, and watching the toilet flush. Oh, and did I mention food?
Likes: Eliza likes perching proudly on the top of cat trees and having her silky fur gently brushed. Pumpkin likes perching wherever she takes a catly notion to perch and then enjoys depositing copious fur gifts thereon.
Dislikes: Eliza definitely dislikes for Pumpkin to be the...
Likes: Snuggling, burying under covers, lying in the sun, watching critters in the yard, playing with Ama, being groomed by Mama
Dislikes: Sudden noises
About Cinderella: Cindy is the most respectful, kind, dainty cat I have ever known. She asks nothing of anyone. She came to me in February 2014 when Four Paws Rescue Team asked...

Likes: Whiling away the hours together eating, napping and playing – in that order
