NANNY
ADOPTER: Amanda Taylor

LOCATION: AL

SHELTER: Baldwin County Humane Society (Kitten Caboodle Program)

WHY NANNY IS SO SPECIAL:
Nanny had a rough start, but is all heart. She had a fresh surgical scar on her leg when I adopted her. Also, she was pregnant when she came to the shelter, and once her kittens had been adopted, another litter came in and she was a surrogate mommy. She continues to share the same love with me every day that I imagine she shared with both litters. She even gives me kisses when I ask! I've had her for 6 years, and she has been diagnosed with diabetes, but she's worth every cent I spend on her care!

IF YOUR PET COULD TALK, WHAT WOULD HE OR SHE TELL US ABOUT YOU?:
My mom is so weird. Sometimes she talks to me with this silly sounding voice, and I can't help but think that she's completely crazy. But it's definitely endearing, so I guess I'll keep her around!


PITSY
ADOPTER: Suzy Allman

LOCATION: Rye, NY

SHELTER: Pets Alive Westchester

WHY PITSY IS SO SPECIAL:
Ol' Pitsy is special because she had been in the shelter nearly her entire life when we adopted her at 12 years old. In spite of that, she is as gentle as the gentlest dog you can imagine, and she is full of gratitude, every minute of the day. If that sounds like an exaggeration, really: it isn't.

IF YOUR PET COULD TALK, WHAT WOULD HE OR SHE TELL US ABOUT YOU?:
I love you with all my heart, with every muscle of my rubbery body. Now give me a treat.
