Sisters Teresa and Michelle were abandoned at the shelter by their owner, nursing and protecting each other’s babies. We would like them to be adopted together because they have bonded by now. Teresa is an exotic triple-kinked bobtail, piebald cat with cap-and- saddle pattern, pink-tip ears, and stocky build. She mats a little bit so should go to the groomer every year or so. We call her “Mother Teresa” because she just loves kittens. She was heartbroken when her litter was gone, and then thrilled to mother orphaned foster kittens. She would do well if you gave her a kitten to love or play with. She tries to play with Michelle now that she doesn’t have kittens to play with, but Michelle doesn’t get it. Teresa did more of the nursing than Michelle, but they each took turns nursing and guarding them. They both love to chase strings. Teresa is so gentle, with a softer meow, and she loves to be petted gently for just a minute and then she’ll purr. She likes to sleep on a cat bed with a little quilt on top of it, or she’ll perch on the bed where she can watch the door. She likes to lay on a chair by the window so she can watch the birds. She is not destructive. She uses the litter box but I put one litter box inside a bigger one so she doesn’t hang her butt over the side and miss. She likes rectangular cat scratchers on the floor with catnip. She is OK with kids, cats, and eventually dogs. She warms up to dogs faster than Michelle. They like Purina One Smart Blend chicken and turkey dry cat food, with canned pate Friskies for a treat.If you are interested in adopting a CAWS pet, please fill out an online application at www.caws.org.
