December: Aristotle

Likes: Food - pellets, hay, lettuce, basil, cilantro, fruits, treats - you name it, he loves it! Roaming free in his apartment; “Reading” (aka shredding) magazines; being with his people; hanging out under furniture and in a bookshelf; watching sports on TV.

Dislikes: Being picked up; having his nails clipped; getting...

It’s 7:30 a.m. on a Saturday! Why am I still in my cage with no breakfast??

November: Ling

Likes: Having her people to herself in her throne room (aka the bedroom, where the boy cats aren't allowed); helping with projects around the house and making sure they are being done right; greeting visitors; running to inspect any loud noises (while the others run away); being told how beautiful she is; getting under the covers in the winter, and rolling around in a flowerpot on the sunny deck in the summer.

What are you doing? Can I help?

October: Ernie

Likes: Napping on a chair on the patio, napping on a chair in the living room, napping on a chair in the den…you get the idea.

Dislikes: Riding in a vehicle

About Ernie: Ernie came into our household in August, 2000 having won our hearts at a Petsmart adoption event – where we also adopted a Tuxedo cat we named Bert.

More treats, please.

September: Brio

Likes: Walks, sitting in the front window watching the world go by.

Dislikes: Television, cell phones, and anything else that takes your attention away from her.

About Brio: She is a third generation Sit-A-Pet doggie! She is named after the musical notation "allegro con brio" which means to play fast with spirit, which describes her perfectly.

You will obey my commands!

August: Justice

Likes: Shoulder rides, sunbathing, herding my humans to bed at night.

Dislikes: Variations from the routine!

About Justice: I got my unusual name because, after a cruel injustice was done to me, a number of Good Samaritans worked to save my life, and so, in the end, justice was done...

Pick me up! We haven’t cuddled in, like, ten minutes!

July: Sunny

Likes: To fly around.

Dislikes: To go back in my cage.

About Sunny: Hi everyone, I'm down at Ocean City right now. I go back and forth in my human parents' car from Chevy Chase every month. The toll booth person at the bay bridge thinks I'm very handsome. Of course I am.

If someone is called a bird brain I take that as a compliment!

June: Corky

Likes: Birdwatching, lap time, flowers, people, looking down from a height

Dislikes: Thunderstorms, fireworks

About Corky: Corky and his brother, Tinker, had a tough start to life, but after being rescued they found a comfortable, happy home. Corky was diagnosed with a serious heart ailment and the prognosis was not good.

Where's my lap?

May: Pepsi

Likes: To be fed by teaspoon; belly rubs; being brushed HIS way! to watch an occasional nature program on TV; sit outside on screened porch, absorb sounds and watch the action from perch on top of table; give appreciative licks; climb his scratching post and balance precariously for fun while swatting at flying feather toy; crashing into paper bags; nipping my feet when he wants attention...

I survived the perils of a soda machine dispenser!

April: Stumpy

Likes: He likes hiding inside his hollow rock. All day. During feeding time, he loves waiting at the opening of his hollow rock, which faces down. There he waits for an unlucky cricket to pass under it and, WUMP, the cricket is gone! He also likes occasionally sitting on his owner's hand during tank cleaning. And then there's staring at people's noses, which he must think is a bug!

Now you see me, now you don't...

March: Daisy

Likes: I like tweeting about books (@DaisyCatNine), napping, and playing with balls and toy mice, as well as sitting in boxes, and removing toilet paper rolls from their holders. I also like my Sit-A-Pet friends, Jim and Melissa.

Do I look presidential? I'm considering running since I think it would be cool to chase mice at the White House. I think I'm the purrfect candidate.

February: Josie

Likes: Snacking on the string and plastic bags that my human doesn't manage to hide from me. Napping, napping, napping. Eating, eating, eating.

Dislikes: Being bullied by her brother Jonah. He's fun most of the time, but you know what pains brothers can be.

Stop folding the laundry and pay attention to me! Can't you see I need a chin rub!

January: Snowy

Likes: Being into everything you are doing, taking over your lap, singing, eating

About Snowy: This beautiful boy is about 12 years old, we think. He was rescued by a loving WARL volunteer when he showed up at her back door last winter crying his heart out.

Some have called me Mr. Obnoxious, but that obnoxious streak saved
my life!
