These little beauties are about 13 weeks old, and from the same litter. Aurora (gray and white, in the picture to the left) was trapped on 9/14/11, and Cece (gray tabby) was trapped on 9/22/11. Aurora has already begun to come out of her shell, and is feeling comfortable to lay out on the bed, watching TV. She scoots when I approach her, but not as quickly as when she first came. Or, as you can see, she hangs out on my sweaters in the closet. This is quite thoughtful of her, as I can reach in easily and give her a scratch; which brings about “insta-purr” – a condition cat people enjoy immensely. She will eat from my hand, and allow me to pick her up (carefully).
Cece is still quite shy, but it’s hard for a kitty to resist tuna so she eats from my hand. She still seeks the comfort of quiet, out of the way hiding as in this picture of her sitting under the bed. I suppose it would be like the Jolly Green Giant coming and picking me up – I might be quite suspicious, too! She is showing such promise already after just a few days.
These girls can be adopted separately, but what’s more fun than one kitty? Two kitties! Aurora helps Cece feel more confident so placement together would be ideal.
They seem to be fine with other animals – Betsy roams freely (another rescue, available soon), and she rests near the younger gals. Fat Man is happy there is now wet food around so he doesn’t mind them and they don’t mind him. Frank doesn’t worry anybody, so I can deduct that as long as a dog minds his own beeswax there won’t be fur flying in your home.
My suggestion for a successful placement is a quiet household with patience and some experience with cats. These gals will take a little coaxing still to gain confidence to run like crazy through the house while you’re awake, as a typical kitty will do. They do tend to come out during the night to explore so I’m confident they’ll be able to acclimate to being the fully mischievous girls they are meant to be.
Health back ground: Spayed, ear tipped, tested for FIV/FeL (negative), Distempter shot (there is a series being completed), Dewormed and rabies vaccine. In other words, the next vet visit you need to make won’t be for a year! No rescued kittens will leave my home without completing their vetting process. I want the experience to be a positive one for both the kitties and the humans who love them!
Adoption fees apply of $100 per kitty, or $175 for both for these fully vetted kittens. Please call or email me if you are interested in welcoming these babes to your family, and giving them a forever home. If you know anyone who may be interested, please pass this along. I am located in Fishkill, NY. Anyone interested can feel free to come and visit the kitties upon appointment. Vet reference is required.
