Your Afternoon Animal Fix

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.


“Our new rescue, Raleigh of Eckington, enjoying her first brunch.”


“This is Seneca and Cassady (both WHS kittens, and Cassady was previously featured on PoP before Seneca was adopted) spooning in Columbia Heights.”


“Brody. Just adopted from the Washington Humane Society.

Loves his new home in Takoma (DC side)”

  • Love them!
    I feel like I might have petted Brody at Swampoodle, if it’s the same dog, he was a sweetheart.

    Loving all these adopted pets today! Welcome to the neighborhood Brody 🙂

    Brody has a great coloring.

    Wondering how introducing a second cat went for the Seneca and Cassady owners? Contemplating getting our shelter cat a buddy to play with in the middle of the night. Of course, not all cats want a buddy, but how do you know it will be as cute as this in the long run?

      Hey U st.,

      I was also a bit worried, but since I’m gone all day working I wanted to get Cassady a play mate. I opted for a cat about the same age as Cassady (though Seneca is about half the size bc he’s so skinny and Cassady is so round) and also wanted to adopt. For the first day I kept them in separate rooms, so got a second litter box for Seneca for in my bedroom. They were very curious about each other, so I started introducing them after just a day. Cassady had only ever met a cat once before (and it didn’t go so well). For the first few introductions, Cassady hissed and swatted and howled and was mean to Seneca. Then the hissing and howling and mean vibes eventually went away after a few days. After about a week I let them me in the same rooms (have free range of my apartment) at all times. They were play fighting, but I quickly realized it was all in fun and they weren’t hurting each other, just wrestling as guys do. They still play fight once in a while – Cassady likes to chase Seneca. But most of the time they act like buddies and as you can see they sometimes cuddle! They definitely like hanging out with each other and I know Cassady appreciates the company instead of being alone all day. Hope that helps! WHS and others will provide tips on how to introduce new cats to each other too.

        Yes it helps! We adopted what turned out to be a very social cat in that he has to be in the same room as his human friends and has to sleep in the bed when we do. I feel bad not getting up to play when he wants to at 3, 4, 5 a.m. Good to know it can work with some time. I am paranoid about making the situation worse with a second cat. That pic is just too cute!
