How is your adopted pet doing? Gracie is doing great! We totally love her. She’s got everything to learn but is learning everything fast. Housetraining is about done–she gets it.

Happy Tails For Monty

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: March 2018
Pet’s AARF Name: Monty
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Guacamole
How is your adopted pet doing? I was not looking for another cat. I already had two and a dog. But when we went to Petco to check on training for our Great Pyrenees, there was this gigantic beautiful gray cat Klingons back in his bed and staring up at me with his green saucer eyes. I just knew he was mine and he needed to come home with me right then and there. The next day my application for adoption was approved and we brought him home. He was very skittish at first and I got worried he wouldn’t feel at home with three rowdy kids and the other animals but he adjusted quickly. We were warned that he plays rough and it’s been a great source of entertainment watching him and our kitten chasing each other and wrestling. I named him Guacamole because those big green eyes are the exact color of avocados. The kids love him and his funny name. He sleeps on my feet every night and is a great addition to our family.
