Reyna may be a bit of an affectionate pudge ball, but that just means there's more of her to love! She’s been working hard to slim down, too. Unfortunately, Reyna is a little sensitive about being a few pounds overweight. It's why her previous family left her at the shelter. They claimed they couldn't afford the resulting vet bills.
With that cute face and her larger-than-life personality, Reyna is a heart stealer. She's on a nice, healthy diet and light exercise routine at the Sanctuary, so she should gradually continue to slim down. Besides carrying some extra weight, Reyna is in great health. And the weight issue is nothing a daily walk can't fix.
She loves attention and giving affection. She plays well with other dogs, and while we aren't sure how she is with cats, we can easily find out if a potential adopter is interested. She'd be great with children, although probably better with kids over the age of 9. Wouldn't you love to have her around?

Piewacket (or "Pie" for short) loves all people, but craves a close, one-on-one relationship with someone special. Like the cat of the same name in the movie "Bell, Book and Candle," Piewacket wants to be your best friend and confidante. He's a good listener, and talker, too! And when you pet him, he'll push his head against you to ask for more attention. As long as he can be your buddy, this bright-eyed, friendly boy is also willing to share your love with other cats and people, including children.
Just four years old, Piewacket came to the Sanctuary from Florida when his person could no longer care for him. Besides being with people, he enjoys running, playing on cat trees and taking catnaps. He tests positive for the feline immunodeficiency virus. But FIV+ cats can live long and healthy lives, and it's very hard for other cats to catch, so he hopes that won't stop you from giving him a chance!

Wouldn't you like to share your secrets with this cool cat?
