This month’s featured pet is Tails, a 2-year-old American Shorthair/Maine Coon mix belonging to Samantha Pryor of Gwinnett Children’s Shelter. Maine Coons are known for their large stature, but Tails is pretty small in comparison.
This handsome boy’s name comes from the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. “Tails” was Sonic’s fluffy-tailed, orange sidekick. “My husband wanted to name him Wade Wilson from Deadpool, but that didn’t seem right,” said Samantha.
Tails, a.k.a Mr. Poopy Pants, is your typical cat – he loves playing with string, balls, ice. But he can be a little naughty. His over-zealous love for chewing on toys landed this sweetie in emergency surgery after an x-ray revealed part of a toy was lodged in his tummy. He’s healthy now and back to his loving self. “He loves to cuddle with me, especially on the weekends,” said Samantha. “He will stay with me all day and follow me everywhere.”
For being named our Pet of the Month, Tails has won a goody basket full of treats and toys worth more than $40. To enter your pet in our pet of the month contest, CLICK HERE.
