found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
Purchased as kittens, when Nilla and her brother, Milo, were 8 yrs old, their parents had a baby. Things didn’t go well with the child and the cats and after 2+ yrs both Siamese kitties were abandoned at a shelter. Older kitties are at great risk in shelters where even young cats and kittens are euthanized. Did the family realize that their once treasured cats would likely be put down? Probably not. I hope not. It is the policy of most shelters not to give out information like that, though they do mention it is their legal right to euthanize.
Purebreds stepped forward to take in these two sweet cats. My heart leapt up the minute I saw them in their shelter cage (photo below). Milo is not yet ready to be posted as he is a little thin still, but he will be put up soon. Nilla is the more confident of the two. Her brother is shy and, according to the owner surrender papers, has had a very hard couple years with the toddler. You can tell these two kitties lost their position of prominence in the family and some of their confidence at the same time. They arrived a little downtrodden.
We have blood panels on both of them and they are healthy with good kidney values and good hearts. Both were a bit underweight with Nilla doing well eating and gaining with longer-bodied Milo being somewhat depressed and slower. They will both have dentals done for them. Nilla’s is scheduled on 5/12.
These kitties make a beautiful pair and could go home together, but they also could be separated. They occasionally squabble and want to get away from each other. Is this from the stress of their circumstances? Hard to say. We are trying to figure out what is best for them. They do need a quiet, stable, solid home where their humans can give them the attention they have been missing. They are very little treasures -- both are still under 7 pounds even though their photographs make them look bigger than they are. I would guess a good weight for them would be between 7 and 8 pounds. These are exquisite cats.
I will get more photos soon.
Nilla eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.
Her foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.
