Johnny says 'No one puts Baby in a corner' from the movie Dirty Dancing. That is how this wonderful pair got their names. They were born in August 2012.
Baby & Johnny were originally part of a cat colony at the Family Dollar in Soddy Daisy. The whole colony was fixed, eartipped, and either returned to Family Dollar or placed in a home. Baby & Johnny went together into the home of an elderly woman, but recently lost their home when she had to move into a nursing faciltiy.
Baby is a big beautiful Tortoiseshell girl with white on her chest and paws. In the beginning, both of these cats were very afraid and stressed in the shelter environment. They were confused about why they lost their home and hid most of the time out of fear and depression. Over time, they have both warmed up to very loving cats. Baby warms up a little quicker than Johnny. She enjoys attention and will perk up once she realizes you are going to scratch her neck or back and will knead her bedding with excitement.
Baby & Johnny are obvious companions and find comfort in each other. You will often find them lounging together in the windowsill. We would prefer to keep them together when adopted into a home but will consider separating them for the right home. Both of these cats will need time and patience to adjust to a new home, but once adjusted, they are both wonderful affectionate cats. Please consider adopting this lovely pair and give them 'the time of their life.'
The adoption fee is $50 which includes a free veterinary exam within 2 weeks of adoption at local participating vets, up to date vaccinations, FELV/FIV test, dewormer, flea preventative, microchip, and spay or neuter.
