Facts about Imah and Evie

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Imah and Evie are an adorable mother-daughter pair. They were rescued from a municipal shelter. Imah had three kittens, though the other two were already adopted. They were tiny, but with lots of food and fun in a foster home, they have blossomed into awesome kitties.

Imah is the mama cat. She's about 1 year old (teenage pregnancy-- no one ever had "the talk" with her) and a petite girl. She's just super tiny and looks like a kitten. She is eating all she can to fatten up! She adores headbutts and pets, but she doesn't like to be held and will wiggle out of arms. Instead, she wants to chill next to you while you type on the computer and get cuddles. She also loves toys and wrestling with her daughter. She is a "torbie"-- a brown tabby with some tortoiseshell mixed in, giving her a beautiful red color.

Evie is a twelve week-old kitten who is about as cute as can be. She is a tortoiseshell kitten, though you barely know it since she is a constant blur of movement. She is always moving! She is quite the parkour expert-- climbing, jumping, and totally fearless. She loves to play with people, though she's not cuddly until she is exhausted. She is more interested in interacting, carrying her toys around, and exploring. She does lay down on her foster dad's lap once she's tired out, and she does like petting. She is a riot and very smart.

While we will consider splitting this pair, first priority will be to adopters interested in them as a pair. They do get along very well. Also, Evie *must* be adopted into a home with another young cat if she is not with her mom (who is very young herself). Their adoption fee is $170 for the pair or $85 each. The adoption fee includes their spays, microchips, age-appropriate shots, deworming, flea treatment, virus testing, and general exams.

Our Adoption Process...

At Tree House, our goal is to find a good fit between cat and guardian. Our trained adoption counselors talk with prospective adopters to best understand their wants and needs. Visitors then tour our cageless facility to meet our rescued cats who are waiting for a forever home. We encourage individuals to take as much time as they need to find their new best friend and make sure it will be a good fit (and can visit multiple times). Ultimately, we want every match to be a happy and healthy one and individuals to take their time versus being rushed to make a decision. Adoption applications stay on file for three months.

Adoption fees of $85 help cover the cost of a cat's care at Tree House including: spay or neuter, deworming, flea treatment, FIV and FeLV testing, AVID microchip, veterinary examination, and necessary vaccinations. We also give a 30-day health guarantee on all of our adoptions.
