The orange kittens are entertaining the staff and those who come to visit them. Foxy, a 2-year-old female Maine coon, is becoming a little more sociable. Ten-year-old Cody, also a shy girl, is also waiting for adoption.

Hurray, hurray, the month of May! Looking out at the strip of blooming tulips and daffodils in front of the Animal Shelter, we are enjoying a bit of warmth. Our kittens are now on their feet and will soon be roaming around learning how to use a litter box and eat solid food. Mama cat is ever vigilant, however. All of the above indicate that spring has indeed sprung.

Good news about Greta, the great dog who won so many hearts at the Animal Shelter of Martha’s Vineyard. She has been adopted! Last seen, she was sitting regally in the back of her new owners’ car looking right at home. The staff and the volunteers at the shelter are overjoyed both for Greta and for her new family.

The headline of this column is a plea that Greta, the great dog, would utter if she could speak. She is becoming a longtime resident of the Animal Shelter of Martha’s Vineyard. She does have a human admirer who comes to take her for long walks. When he walks in the door her ardor is hard to miss what with the wiggling and tail-wagging she displays. Unfortunately, this person cannot adopt her at the moment, but he will be happy to write her a reference.
