Meet beautiful sisters Bayley and Sasha! This pair is an instant-family for some lucky adopter. Their foster parents say they are the easiest, gentlest, quietest, sweetest cats they have ever fostered. They are easy to care for, have a calm energy, and enjoy people without being demanding. Being combed and watching birds out the window are their favorite things, and they are quite the lap cats, too.
In late April, we received a plea to help this pair of 16 year old cats who had been surrendered to a rural Wisconsin shelter. Their elderly owners could no longer care for them, and the sisters were devastated to lose the only family they had ever known. A shelter is no place for geriatric cats, and the girls needed to get to a foster home ASAP. As soon as we said yes, our friends at Badger Rescue Animal Transport Services got them to us the very same day.
Bayley and Sasha have gone through the grieving process and are adjusting well to a foster home.They tolerate the big dogs and the other elderly cats in the foster home and have shared their foster room with other cats well. As their owners had not been able to afford their veterinary care, Bayley and Sasha were brought up to date on vaccinations, have had senior blood panels performed, and both had urgent dental surgeries on May 6. Between the two of them, they had 14 teeth removed...poor things! But, they are doing great now and are quite healthy for their age, and could have years left to be your companions, as we're seeing more and more cats live into their 20s.
Bayley, the long-haired sister, came in with matted fur, but absolutely loves being combed and even gave her foster mom kisses as she tugged at the worst of her mats. Sasha is a bit more reserved, but once you get her purr motor going, she can't stop! Splitting the two girls up is not an option after they've been together their whole lives and are never far from each other. We are hoping someone special will open their heart and home to these sweet girls and give them a wonderful retirement home.
