Ashes & Inky were first spotted as young kittens, following their mother around a townhouse complex. Neighbors immediately began to feed and befriend them; but the little family were unwilling to come indoors. And then came Snowzilla, and the kittens decided that a warm house seemed very inviting. Little Inky is a super affectionate, constantly purring, tuxedo-clad girl. She adores playing and follows her foster mother around the house; and a favorite game is to scamper up and down stairs. She will curl up the moment she's lifted off the ground and will snuggle into your shoulder; and firmly likes to believe that she is in charge of the world. Aside from the purr though Inky is completely silent - she will open her mouth, but no mew will come out. Her brother Ashes has decided to take up the slack, and he likes to talk. Ashes enjoys after dinner talks, and always announces when he is on his way to the litterbox (he's well behaved though, and never meows during the night when people are sleeping). He is curious and playful, and will nudge your hand with his head when he wants to be petted. And brushed. Ashes has made it clear that he definitely approves of being brushed. The handsome white & brown tabby is still adjusting to the concept of being picked up, but he's slowly coming around to accepting it. Both are skittish around new people, such as guests, but while Inky will re-emerge and be curious, Ashes will stay hidden. Given how far these two have come in just the last few months it's clear that anyone willing and able to put in a bit of time to help socialize them further will be rewarded with two affectionate, trusting cats.
*Ashes & Inky need to stay together - Inky relies on Ashes for companionship and protection. When she was at the vet, he was pacing restlessly about the house, and the moment she came home she rushed up to him and curled up under his chin while he groomed her head. They are very sweet together.
