Loveland, Ohio – We are pleased to present Loveland Magazine’s Pets of the Month for October! The community of Loveland provided us with some amazing Pet of the Month candidates and we are beyond thrilled to celebrate these loved animals!

Vivien Terselic is the proud owner of two Siamese cats, Eva and Lilah. These beautiful sisters will be turning 7 this Fall!

“When their humans were adopting a cat, they had just one in mind, but then a family that was going to adopt the other cat backed out,” Vivien explained, “So, Eva and Lilah stayed together and came home with their new humans. Lilah is gray and white and wears a blue-collar. Eva is several shades of brown and wears a pink collar. Both have bright blue eyes. Eva and Lilah are best friends, even though they get into fights sometimes!”

Congratulations to Vivien, Eva, and Lilah for being selected to represent Loveland Magazine’s Pets of the Month for October! Vivien and her Siamese cats will be rewarded with a Nothing Bundt Cakes Bundtlet Tower, a gift card to The Works Pizza, and an 8X10 framable photo keepsake! Vivien’s cats will not only be featured in our publication but will also be included in our weekly newsletter for the month of October and our social media pages.

We would like to thank everyone who sent in photos of their pets as it was an absolute joy to see how many beautiful animals there are in our community! For those who sent in photos but weren’t selected this time around, don’t worry, as your entries will be entered back into the competition for the following month’s selection! For those that missed the deadline for October’s Pet of the Month, we will be taking entries from October 1st-25th for November’s Pet of the Month.

Check out the video below created by David Miller that features Eva and Lilah as well as some of our favorite September and October Pet of the Month entries!

Share with us and the community why your pet is so special to you along with any other unique facts that set your little buddy apart from other pets! When sending in your pet photos and bios please include your pet’s name, age, and breed as well as your contact info with a short description of each photo you provide us with. If you want to share where your pet’s favorite spots are in Loveland that would be great as well! Remember we DO NOT discriminate against any pets; all pets are welcome to enter into the contest!
