FEB 11, 2016:

Skittles is an 11-year-old spayed dilute tortoiseshell.  She hasn't had a recent check-up, but has never been sick, has never had a health problem, not even a cold.  Skittles is shy of human contact.  Although we've had her since six weeks of age, she never settled as a typical cat would.  Under specific, non-threatening circumstances, she will allow herself to be petted - but in a new home, that probably wouldn't happen for quite some time.  

She has a lovely, sweet little voice, which you will hear from time to time as Petey grooms her.  Skittles can be quite playful, especially when the red dot appears.  She likes to rip - to zoom from one end of the house to the other and from room to room as fast as she can. Skittles has perfect litterbox habits, never has accidents and does not mark.  Skittles is not declawed. 

Petey (see separate posting) and Skittles are as close as two cats can be and need to be adopted together.  They play together, groom each other, and sleep together.  They come from a home of two adult humans and other cats.  They are very shy of visiting strangers, and have never been around dogs or children.  They are strictly indoor cats.  

Skittles and Petey are free-fed on kibble and share a single can of Friskies 'pate' in the evening.
