Default So, just put out the request for more info on...

[...two shelter cats.]

Losing our calico in September and then our tabby three weeks ago...the house is too quiet.

Meet Picasso and DaVinci. They are a bonded pair of polydactyl males. They are litter mates. They are in foster care now, rescued from a shelter that was not a no-kill shelter.

Iíve been staring at their pics for a week now, not sure I was ready to have more kitties. I finally bit the bullet and sent the email to get more info and (hopefully) the adoption process going.

Crossing fingers theyíre still available. 🤞🏻

Good luck, I hope they work out for you. It's been many years since we had a cat; they're good company.

Becka is talking about getting another cat since our older cat Nala (13 yrs) is not an active enough companion for Tig (1&1/2 yrs). Tig wants to play but Nala just wants to sleep and hang out.

Not a bad idea. Lots of loveable cats in shelters just waiting for a home. ❤️

Years ago we had an orange one like that. He was very affectionate with us but out in the hood he was a bad ass. I got a knock on the door once, it was a neighbor with a ball of fur in his hand and not happy. He told me if he caught him he would BBQ him. Apparently "Bud" went in his house, upstairs, and kicked the sh*t out of his cat...

I miss Bud...

Good looking Cats. Hope they get a forever home with you Sandy!

I remember some 40+ years ago, her ex slipped some poison meat under the ex/kids mom's apartment door....took out the Golden retriever, so a few weeks later she wanted a orange cat.....so looked around and without any .gov crap, picked up a kitten.....I was holding him in my bare arms, standing in the apt....and of course the older cat spooked him...he took off, two patches on each arm, bleeding....so we named him Four Wheel Drive....4 wheel for short.....we had the posi traction removed in front.....

strangely enough, after the divorce, they both ran out into the typical suburban street out front, and got killed by cars....and years ago, down here in Florida, same ending for other cats....weird......

Get them neutered if they are not already and rescue them for real. You are fortunate they are already paired up... I think single cats get depressed hanging out alone all day.

The shelters here only adopt out animals that are spayed or neutered. If they are too young for them to spay/neuter before adoption, you have to give them a deposit that is returned only after you have had them fixed (and bring back the medical records with proof of such).

They also come with all their vaccines and are microchipped. Most are FIV/FeLV tested, as well, depending on the shelter.

I found these guys thru https://www.adoptapet.com/. They work in collaboration with shelters nationwide. It was not hard to find a bonded pair, as the site allows you to specify whether or not you want an animal that is part of a bonded pair.

I also looked using https://www.petfinder.com/. They will tell you when an animal is part of a bonded pair, but they donít have it as one of their search criteria. You basically have to look at each description to determine if they are.

Havenít heard anything back on these two. It is motherís day weekend, though. These two are in a foster home, run by a non-profit organization that pulls animals out of shelters that euthanize.

Iíll follow up Tuesday morning if I donít hear from them tomorrow. 🐈
