Make way for the Queen. Ion carries herself with a royal bearing. She is a sweet, calm and gentle 4-year-old who would never deign to show her claws or bare her teeth. She'll do well with kids and other cats given a proper introduction.
Here's what her foster says: "Ion has new energy after shedding some extra weight and getting her multi-color and beautifully patterned coat back in shape. She is just so happy to be able to run and jump and play again."
Meet Rocky, an all around great little dog. He's a friendly and gentle guy who loves to have his tummy rubbed. He's a moderately active 5-year-old, 13-pound dog who loves his walks and playtime but also enjoys stretching out on the sofa for a long nap. Rocky enjoys the company of other dogs and might even be able to live peacefully in a home with dog-savvy cats if properly introduced.
