Pets of the Week: Only eight adopting days ‘till Christmas- Nova and Lizzy are waiting for you – Yahoo News

Looking for a new twist on a holiday classic? Lizzy and Nova will keep you feeling festive -with or without the partridge in a pear tree.

Pets of the Week: Nova and Annabelle

One the first day of Christmas, and every day thereafter, Lizzy promises to bring you true love, wrapped up in an adorable little package. And Nova won’t bring you a pair of turtle doves, but she will bring you her tennis ball, as well as good tidings to you and your family every day of the year.

While you’re unlikely to find a partridge in a pear tree around these parts, you will find Lizzy curled up in a shelter cage. Lizzy is hoping for a change of scenery, and while twinkling lights and sparkly ornaments would be lovely to behold, a warm home and a kind hand is what she really wants to see.

“Who needs 10 lords leaping when you can have a 10-year-old kitty purring?” -Lizzy -Annabelle

At 10-years-old, Lizzie is well past the ‘climbing the Christmas tree’ stage. There’s also the fact that she is a ‘tripod’ kitty, with three legs instead of the customary four. While she might not be as springy as ten lords a leaping, Lizzy has adapted remarkably well to her recent surgery. In addition to being a rare tripod-calico, Lizzy also has a crinkly ear to complete the trifecta of cuteness.

Shy but sweet, Lizzy adores being petted and having her head rubbed. Lizzy enjoys sitting next to her friends and cuddling up nice and close, though she seems to be more of a sit-next-to-you-cat than a lapcat. From there, she will take all the chin scratches and head rubs that you’re willing to give. As she heads into her golden years, Lizzy would appreciate a quieter home without any wild and crazy kittens or rowdy dogs. However, she would likely appreciate a calm kitty companion. Lizzy will need a little time to settle into her new home, but once she does, you’ll be rewarded with cuddles and purrs.

Because Lizzy is 10-years-old, her adoption fee has been prepaid by the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter ‘Save A Senior’ program. If you’d like to make Lizzy a part of your holiday traditions, submit an adoption application online through the Burlington County Animal Shelter’s Petango page (, enter the shelter’s zip code of 08060, then go to the shelter page and click on Lizzy’s picture), then call the shelter at 609-265-5073 (ext. 4) to set up a meeting.
