Pet of the Month Archive 2014
Likes: Treats, neck rubs, munching grass in the yard on Mom-supervised visits to the great outdoors.
Dislikes: Everyone except his mom
About Mario: Mario was adopted in July 1994 when he was about six months old. His shelter name was "Taz"...
Likes: Sleeping on the job (as pictured); playing "Da Bird" and fetch; hunting for mice in the apartment; feeling the wind in my fur; drinking from neglected water glasses; removing those water glasses from counters and tabletops; snuggling in the afternoon and night (also stealing pillows); watching squirrels through the window; laying in the sun on lazy weekends; visits from Sit-a-Pet; empty boxes; sitting on laptops, especially if someone is trying to work.
Likes: Hide-and-seek, boxes, car rides, sassing wildlife from the safety of window sills, hunting bugs, supervising, waking up humans in the middle of the night, getting brushed, head bumps, kisses, naps, food.
Dislikes: Going to the vet, sleeping through the night, vacuum cleaners.
Likes: Attention. And a lot of it. Morning constitutionals to get the paper and roll around in the driveway to get a belly rub. He is particularly fond of Friday morning conference calls and coffee on the patio and has been known to chime in loudly ensuring all on the phone can hear him. He loves being in his yard, strutting along all the walls and ledges and chasing random flying insects.
Likes: Tunnels, Willow leaves, tunnels, head rubs, tunnels... did I mention tunnels?
Dislikes: Being picked up (he's a prey animal after all!), nail clipping, bedtime.
About Dobby: Dobby is an adorable 4 year old with a lot of personality. He can sit next to you for quite some time...
Likes: To sass, feathers, straws, and sunbathing.
Dislikes: Being alone, getting wet, and excessive attention
About Patches: Patches was adopted from a Baltimore shelter at the tender age of 7 months and has been happily reigning as the queen of my DC apartment for almost 2 years. Patches likes to headbutt lovingly and with gusto.
Likes: Mr. T likes cardboard boxes, fetching his crinkleball toys, using his crinkleball as a pacifier, spooning with humans, and galloping around the house like a horse. Izzie likes answering the front door, brushies in the sunny bay window, chasing the laser dot, and giving foot rubs with her head.
Dislikes: Vacuum cleaners, closed doors, and not getting enough kitty treats.
Likes: Treats, dunking toys in the toilet, running on her cat wheel, being up high, opening the kitchen cabinets, playing hide and seek, and strangely, spinach.
Dislikes: Strangers, closed doors, and snow.
About Conroy: Named for author Pat Conroy, I brought this diva home when she was 10 weeks old. Not much of a cat person, I wasn't quite sure what to expect...
Likes: Ace likes to play with his friend the Exeter Lion. Sometimes he will grab it by its neck and shake it but the Lion does not seem to mind. Ace also likes to bite the tips of peoples' fingers.
Dislikes: Ace does not like to travel. Staying at home all of the time is fine with him.
Likes: Not just like, but love for his human flock. Next to that, millet spray (a type of grass with many small, tasty seeds). Corn, peas, but absolutely not carrots or lima beans. Anything forbidden that people were eating, such as cheese, popcorn and cookies. On the other hand, the most healthy eating habits of any budgie I have known, loving his vegetables and eagerly eating pellets, something that may account for his relatively long life.
Likes: Anything moving under a blanket, especially hands! Oh, and having his belly rubbed.
Dislikes: Messing with his feet.
Likes: Catnip, chasing the laser pointer up and down the hallway, playing with the kitty tease, big bright windows and warm sleeping spots. For Rosie it's boxes and high places like the top of the refrigerator; Benji likes being in the center of things like the laptop keyboard or on top of whatever is being worked on at the desk. And of course they love all their Sit-A-Pet friends.
