Miss Winkles Pet of the Week of Nov. 28: Louise

Are you ready to play? Louise, the eight-month-old Domestic Shorthair, is always ready to chase a thrown ball or mouse-toy around in our community cat room. She can’t help herself, it’s just so much fun! We really do get a kick out of watching this striped feline bouncing off of ledges and cat trees to chase string.

Miss Winkles Pet of the Week of Dec. 5: Heidi

Hello gorgeous! That’s what we say to this zesty, 4-year-old German Shepherd when she goes out for her walks in the morning. Her name is Heidi, and she’s a spritely gal with good energy and a love of people. The best thing about Heidi is how much she enjoys children. She has met many kids here at Miss Winkles and she absolutely lights up when they come to visit her. A big family is just what Heidi ordered for herself!
