Pets of the Week September 17, 2012

She cried when her roommate was adopted, but then 2-year-old Jaya’s loving heart is way bigger than the rest of her; her terrier/mix size makes her a perfect lap dog, although she’s too full of fun to stay lap bound for long. Jaya was found stray, and the greatest mystery is how a lone little dog came to be such a fine companion — she’s intelligent, attentive, loyal and calm; an excellent playmate for other dogs and even more so for even your smallest child. Her fun-loving spirit includes no aggression at all; her sprightly good humor overflows only in the form of kisses, and they’re just as tidy as the rest of her. If you understand what a joy great friendship is, come meet your match. Jaya will hand you her beautiful heart first, and all the fun will follow.

Her China blue eyes are gloriously Siamese and her exquisite coat is a most distinctive form of calico, but despite her exotic good looks she’s still “Mandy.” Pick her up and she’ll tenderly purr you her story — her owner couldn’t keep her and so she’s here, feeling a little shy but ready to exult in your attention, turn her head upside down and show you the delightful spots on her velvet chin, and all the colors of her slender stomach too. Mandy’s unaware of her striking appearance; her two-year-old heart is full of homespun acceptance — other cats are fine with her, dogs too, and she’ll gently befriend your kids. Come marvel at the warmth of her blue gaze; Mandy’s ready to show you every color in the spectrum of cat love, and more.
