Penny came in as Penelope and at that time, we already had a Penelope so "Penny" stuck as her name. Penny's Insulinoma soon became apparent and with medication, we were able to bring it under control. With age, adrenal disease crept in and she quickly became a permanent resident. Penny is a sweet girl who loves everyone and is a great welcoming ambassador for her playgroup of permanent residents.
Luigi was once a part of a Mario and Luigi team. Mario has since passed on and Luigi found his new place with our largest permanent resident group. Luigi is older with arthritis, adrenal disease and insulinoma. Each day, after snacks, he likes to station himself in his favorite cushy bed where he can watch all of the goings-on during playtime
Ethel is a trooper. Nature gave her 3 solid wallops and she just keeps plugging on. Blind, with both advanced adrenal and insulinoma, you would never know it by her attitude. A snack and a soft bed are her big priorities each day at playtime
Bandit's companion had passed away leaving him by himself. He quickly made new friends and is now with an elderly group. Gambit, is often found sleeping with him. Healthwise, Bandit is doing well for an older male but does have trouble knowing when he has to go potty and is prone to lots of accidents. We love him regardless!
