Who's a beautiful girl? It's me, Miss Cinne Suede! With my cinnamon-suede coat, I'm a sleek and soft fashion starlet who is about to own the runway. I'm a big girl (54 pounds) who is not even a year old yet. I was born in March, so you know by the time I'm full grown, I'm going to be a solid sister -- all muscle and bright eyes! I have an amazing fawn/lilac coat, and my eyes look green or blue or golden, depending on the light. My toes are dipped in white, and I have a white splash on my chest. I love tennis balls and treats, but I can get jumpy and mouthy very quickly, because I'm young and untrained. That means no kids under 12, please! And I need to be your only pet -- no cats or dogs or critters for me, because I do not respect their space and their needs. That's OK though, because once you meet me, I'll be the only pet you want. Right now I have sore feet that I'm being treated for, and the staff will fill you in on that medical need. And one last thing -- I need to go to a home that has experience with dogs.
Witches, vampires, monsters, and other scary icons are a big part of Halloween--especially ghosts! How would you like to meet a cute, soft, furry ghost who hops? Well, let me introduce myself. I'm Ghost, a very cute bunny with long floppy ears and fluffy brown and white spotted fur. I'm a friendly ghost (like Casper) who likes to be petted and brushed. Not all ghosts are out for revenge or scares! I enjoy rearranging the furniture in my cage because it's hard for me to be confined, so a home where I can run and play outside of my cage would be ideal. I love to play with boxes, hiding inside or flipping them in the air. I'm a little nervous about being picked up, but if you go slowly and gently, I'll come around and let you transport me short distances. Sometimes I get perturbed when people move my stuff around, so it will be best to clean my cage without me in it! If you would like to meet a ghost who will leave you with a warm heart rather than cold chills, come in soon to meet me, Ghost the bunny! You won't be spooked by this furry critter with long floppy ears, although I might "go bump in the night" once in a while. If you adopt me you can tell everyone that you have a "haunted" house and invite them to meet your mini-Ghost! ***I now live at Zoomania, the cool pet store in the Colonial Park Mall.
