Name: Mira and Mimi
Born: September 2015
Description: Brown and White/ Gray and White
MIRA & MIMI are surrogate sisters who are good little buddies and need to be adopted as a pair.
MIRA is a sweet, friendly teenager. She is very people oriented and turns on her purr motor the minute she sees you. Mira loves to be petted and rubs up against you to show her affection. This sweet girl is also playful and quite adventurous. She loves playing with Mimi, batting toys around or pouncing on anything that moves. (Note: June 2016 - we just discovered Mira has a luxating patella in one of her back legs - knee cap slips out of place; we don't know yet if this can be managed or if she will need surgery at 1 year of age at SPCA's expense).
At one week of age, Mira was rescued from outdoors as an orphaned kitten with her siblings. Her surrogate mom, Olive, is Mimi's biological mom. Mira and Mimi have been together since they were about a week old.
MIMI is a sweet, low-key girl who likes hanging out with her surrogate sister, Mira. She is as soft as a bunny rabbit and loves to flop down on the floor and stretch out asking you to pet her! She loves to be petted and having her face stroked. Mimi loves being held and even at this young age is a lap cat! She is a tad bit shy and startles with loud noises so she will need a little time to adapt to a new home.
Mimi has very minor neurological challenges keeping her balance, but has learned to compensate amazingly well. She gets around just fine, has no problem using the litter box and does great playing with Mira. Sadly, Mimi's mom received a distemper vaccination at a local shelter when she was pregnant which has caused Mimi's condition.
These girls are waiting for a forever home of their own with no young children, dogs or other cats.
