About Skye

Skye is my second rescue cat who was saved from euthanasia at only a few days old. She was bottle-fed by a foster "mom" before she came to live with us. She is loving with my boyfriend and I, but can be very suspicious of new people (especially children for some reason), so she usually hangs out in the basement if there's someone new in the house.

About Shoes

Shoes was a stray we found starving in the alley as a kitten. Her age is approximate. We started feeding her and she lived happily outside until Hurricane Sandy struck and we decided to take her inside from the weather. She turned out to be super-healthy, very friendly, and fast became a member of our family. She and Lucy love to play together (although Skye is still less-than-enthused about her new roommate) and Shoes can be nervous around strange grownups, but she LOVES children. She spends most of her time either playing with toys or lounging in sunbeams. You would never know she had been a stray.

  • Age: 5 years, 6 mo. old
  • Weight: 10lbs
  • Breed:
  • Tracking Chip: No

  • Gets along with children: Yes
    Occasionally suspicious of new grownups but LOVES kids.
  • Gets along with other dogs: Yes
    Shoes is easy-going with all other animals; she is not fearful or aggressive at all. She will be friendly with any animal as long as the other animal does not show aggression.
  • Gets along with cats: Yes

About Star

Star is a sweet, gentle, loving pit who gets along well with other doggies, people and children. In fact, two of her best buds are a shi tzu puppy and my friend's 10-month-old son. She is well-trained to "sit," "down," and walking on a leash. She can get excited and plays around other dogs, but usually she is very low-key and just likes to lay with her head in someone's lap. She is my baby and the best dog I could have ever asked for.

  • Sex: Female
  • Age: 6 years old
  • Weight: 45lbs
  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
  • Tracking Chip: Yes
  • Spayed: True
  • House Trained: Yes
    She prefers to do her business in a place where she has privacy (we have a backyard) but she will eventually go if you walk her. She knows the command "go potty."
  • Gets along with children: Yes
    She loves my friend's 1 year old son!
  • Gets along with other dogs: Yes
    She loves other dogs but can get overexcited and "jumpy" around new friends. She calms down after a few minutes though. She is very well behaved at the dog park. She does not like meeting new friends while she is on a leash; I think it makes her feel vulnerable.
  • Gets along with cats: Yes
    I have three cats and she pretty much just ignores them.
