Pets of the Week April 9, 2012

Sure he’s housetrained — he’s a gentleman after all — obedient and ultra-responsive, a trainer’s dream and a family’s lifelong treasure; the only thing wild about him is his popularity with kids and dogs, large and small. Memphis is a modestly-sized, glossy brown terrier/mix whiz-pet whose previous owner couldn’t give him the time he deserved; an instant friend-maker with who comes immediately when you call him, eager to kiss you and get a hug in return — he adores treats too. Memphis can already “sit,” but he yearns to learn more, his potential’s as unlimited as his love and acceptance of others, cats included. Low-maintenance Memphis gives eons more than he demands, and would gladly be your inside/outside dog. Come touch his silky ears and see how easily Memphis will grace your life; he’s this century’s bargain of the heart, and more.

The Maine Coon cat is the second most popular breed in the U.S. — the legendary descendent of an English Seafarer’s felines; how this magnificent young dream boat of a Maine Coon mix came to land stray in Ninety Six is a mystery, but Simba exemplifies the appeal of his breed in every aspect. At almost a year old he’s as soft as sea foam, two handfuls of long, frothy fur — with a talking voice and purr as silky as the rest of him, and the gentle, affectionate intelligence that makes the Maine Coon famous. He’s destined to be a playful, attentive companion throughout his life — another Maine coon trait — and is the consummate choice for a child’s cat, or anyone who appreciates a love as constant and tender as the stars. Civilized Simba gets along amiably with other cats and dogs, and keeps his box ship-shape, of course. If you’ve been searching for the perfect port in every storm, there’s no finer transport to happiness than Simba. Come see.
