Pets of the Week May 7, 2012

She’s so exquisitely housetrained the word “accident” isn’t in her vocabulary — but she demonstrates the true meaning of “genteel” with ease. Our smiling, social Chelsey’s an American Bulldog mix at 6 years old she’s a walking etiquette lesson, and she’ll teach you how sweetly genuine warmth and refined manners go together hand-in-paw. Chelsey was found stray in Bradley; whatever her early training she’s been socialized beautifully, and she celebrates the American Bulldog character in signature Chelsey style: she’s by-your-side social, confident and obedient, as clean and trustworthy at home as you are, a loving companion for your kids and a lovely playmate for other dogs, she’s fine with cats too, and oh yes, she adores leash-walking. Come meet the friendship delight of your life; her ladylike ways may remind you of Audrey Hepburn, but she doesn’t need breakfast at Tiffany’s at all; Chelsey only wants to be with you.

How he came to be named “Scatter” is as mysterious as his Egyptian Abyssinian heritage — he’s certainly not scatter brained or sloppy either. In fact his trademark Abyssinian/mix intelligence is so pronounced he’s beyond box-trained; he always waits patiently til dark to use his litter box — hey, who says a handsome 2-year-old guy in his prime can’t be modest? You’ll see that he wears the distinctive brown ticked Abyssinian coat too, dense, silky, and more spotted than striped — and his big, gloriously green eyes are another breed trait. But more important than his coloring is that his purr-trigger lies just fingertip deep in his warm ticked fur; Scatter was turned in because his owner had personal problems, but his ability to love is still as quietly constant as the rest of him. He’s abundantly affectionate in his own easy-going way and a friend to all who meet him — he’s used to living with other cats, is accepting of dogs and has just the serene temperament to make him a wonderful first pet for your little ones. Scatter’s already neutered and can go home with you today, where he’ll balance his exotic ancestry with plain down home good manners; and if your litter box is in a private place he may even use it before nightfall, but he’s sure to spend the days loving you. Scatter’s ever-pleasing sense and sensibilities are waiting, come see him today.
