December: Chou-chou

Likes: Tearing across the room and bouncing off the walls and sofas while letting out little squeaks (she is too dainty to meow), eating chicken baby food and fig leaves, being a lap cat.

I wish you lots of fun with your pets during the holidays and a prosperous, chock-full-o'-pets New Year! Squeak!

November: Dipper

Likes: Dipper loves any kind of food especially yogurt drops as well as stealing food from his cage mates, stashing food, begging for food, oh and back scratches too! He loves to give kisses and to snuggle up with me. He's so squishy and loveable.

I'm a lover, not a fighter!

October: Pasha

Likes: Being next to those who love me, treats, speaking, the door bell, being the center of attention in my red dress at the Bark Ball, sniffing around Logan Circle, "spooning" with my Daddy right before I fall asleep, knowing what is going on at all times, playing chase with Stephen, going on long walks, hearing the story about when my Daddy first saw me at the shelter and knew he had to have me in his life, seeing people's reaction when they find out that I'm not a puppy but almost 10 years old, and watching TV (she actually sits in front of it for hours!)

The little Do Do Girl with the big Do Do Curl (when she was a puppy she was so tiny but had long curly hair)

September: Cassie

Likes: Belly rubs, chasing reflections, chasing a laser beam, trying to open the food dish before the timer opens it, watching the "Feathers for Felines" video, sitting in "mom's" lap, running under the covers when you're trying to make the bed, sleeping, looking sweet, and "talking". (Her pet sitter says it's very cute how she "talks" you up the stairs to her food closet, then "talks" you over to her food dish)

Look at me, it's back to school!

August: Simba

Likes: Fresh greens from the Arlington Farmer's Market and edible flowers. He loves a good spine and neck massage.

Proper skin care is essential in the summer!

Read More

July: Paco

Likes: Hopping onto the window seat for a long BRUSH session! He also likes jumping into the bathtub and knocking everything off the tub's corners. (he has six toes, so it's EASY!) Bang! And knocking my drinking glass off the bedstand at dawn if lazy Mom hasn't gotten out of bed yet!

You can't possibly still be asleep????!!!

June: Abby

Likes: Getting brushed!!!! She drools in ecstacy. She also likes playing with her string and chewing on hands. And, of course, she loves her daddy.

I'm just wild about Harry!

May: Ginger

Likes: Running on her wheel, eating strawberry bites, cruising through the house in her ball, and cuddling with most of her family.

Where is my Vitadrop?

April: Jacen

Likes: Attention and lots of it. An active and friendly sort, Jacen likes everything from sitting on a lap to rigorously chasing his toys around. When he plays by himself, he will flip his soft toys into the air, jump to get them and then land with a thud on the hardwood floor -- 17 pounds of thud!

Pay attention to ME!

March: Molly

Likes: Juggling two balls at once, with one in her mouth and the other one being nudged along. This gets complicated when she tries to maneuver her two balls up and down stairs. She also likes riding through the countryside with the top down on the convertible. Since she LOVES snow, this has been a particularly good winter for her. She responds to the Serbian words "brzo...brzo...brzo" (quick...quick...quick) and dashes about at great speeds encircling her walker.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

February: Lillibit & ChaCha

Likes: EVERYONE! They also love toys (especially that toy with which the other one is playing), and cuddling and bed burrowing, and frolicking outside chasing squirrels and birds at the feeder.

We don't read. We have people for that.

January: Babe

Likes: PBS TV- Arthur the Aardvark, Dragon Tales, Clifford the Big Red Dog. Babe climbs down from his cage, positions himself six inches from the screen, then screeches! He also enjoys impersonating crows and whistling at passersby.

Good thing I just had my shower and pedicure!
