Replacements, Ltd.
Featured Pet (and Pet Owner!)


Our featured pet this month is two-year-old “Toshiko Sato,” (a.k.a. Tosh, Toshie, and Monster), a mischievous yet loving feline who belongs to Melonie Penn, a supervisor in the Replacements, Ltd. Internet Services department. “Like two of our other pets [‘Ianto Jones’ and ‘Gwen Cooper’], Tosh is named for a character from the BBC ‘Torchwood’ series,” Melonie said. “We adopted Tosh from the Guilford County Animal Shelter through a local pet store as a kitten. I had visited the pet store a week earlier during an adoption event for the dog rescue I volunteer with, and I fell in love with a mischievous looking little kitten named ‘Bella’ – Tosh’s name at the time. A few days later I ‘just happened’ to walk past the cat wall at the pet store with my partner so she could meet Bella as well. She also fell in love, and we started the adoption process that afternoon.”

Melonie said, “Tosh gets along wonderfully with our three dogs – Nike, Sambuca, and Ianto - and she is determined to make our other cat, Cooper, love her as well. Tosh also does her absolute best to teach any foster dogs in the house what it means to live with a cat by introducing herself to them in ‘stealth ninja cat’ mode, and letting them know their boundaries.”

According to Melonie, Tosh’s nickname of “Monster” comes from the way her mischievousness combines with her insistence on full-time love. “She seems to create opportunities to sneak into the laundry to steal socks, then she dances and jumps around the house chasing and tossing them in the air. She’ll do the same thing with any of the smaller stuffed dog toys,” Melonie said. “She also loves to snuggle, and has on occasion been found snuggling with Nike or Sambuca. Whether I’m watching TV, reading, or even attempting to knit, Tosh always finds a way to insert herself between me and whatever I’m doing at the time! Her favorite way to make sure she has my undivided attention is to lie on my chest and nuzzle my chin.”

When asked about Replacements’ pet-friendly policy, Melonie said, “While Tosh and her feline sister Cooper don’t come to work with me, I really appreciate the opportunity to bring my dogs to work. The Replacements’ pet policy allows me to assist with my local animal rescue in unique ways, and by bringing my dogs to work they are always being socialized, which gives me more time at home to provide the undivided attention Tosh demands!”
