Petunia’s as lovely as a flower, but don’t be fooled into thinking she’s just a pretty face—she’s equally intelligent. A recent graduate of the Pawsitive Prison Program at Leath Correctional Institution, she now knows over 20 commands, including Get Dressed, High Five, Go to Sleep, and Heel. She’s a fast learner and more than willing to add to her repertoire, especially if she’s rewarded with her favorite treat: popcorn. Petunia is a 1-year-old, hefty medium-sized, black and white, Terrier mix who’s looking for a forever home where she can run, play ball, take long walks, and bask in the sun. And when she’s worn off her excess energy, she’s ready to snuggle up and shower you with love.
Selena is named after the Greek Moon Goddess, Selene, and this gorgeous Tortoiseshell kitty truly shines. She’s only 6 months old, so she loves to spend time batting around her toys, especially the catnip mice, but she can be just as laid back as she is playful, quite often content to simply relax in a favorite spot. She likes companions, so she’ll be more than happy to join a family that has other cats. Selena already weighs about 7 pounds, so she’s likely to be on the larger size, but that’s just more to love. Her beauty is unmistakable, an enchanting mixture of black, orange, and creamy white, but it’s her charisma that will ultimately cast you under her spell.
